We may see here how heedless. the town rec. was kept, as our municip. assurance for the former is--b. 7 (9) 1636, i. e. the day after she was bapt. and may doubt, whether that for the latter--14 (5) 1639, i. e. the same day as the bapt. be wholly trustworthy. Possib. this may be true, as we kn. that in the case of Dr. Franklin he had the benefit of so early sprinkl. yet prob. the distance from C.'s house to the ch. was much longer than that of the f. of F. but in the earlier case, we see its blunder, and can readily account for it. Ano. w. Mary, d. 14 Jan. 1652, but he soon found consol. in m. 10 Mar. foll. with Martha, wid. of Gov. Winthrop wh. bef. had been wid. of Thomas Coytemore, and by her had Caleb, b. 15, bapt. 26 Dec. 1652. But he had brot. from Eng. d. Mary, and perhaps Elizabeth unless this last were b. at Dorchester.

Humphrey; and £20. to the ch. of Windsor. Of his will. a letter of Rev. John Davenport, pr. [[vol. 1, p. 421]] in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 45, contains story of unusual interest. JOHN, Boston, call. jr. s. of Humphrey (wh. never came to our shore, I think), was adm. freem. 18 May 1642, had Sarah, b. 25 Dec. 1657; and d. 1674.

JACOB, Charlestown, s. prob. of Isaac of the same by w. Sarah, d. of John Train of Watertown, m. 12 Oct. 1679, says Bond, 606, where the date should be, I think, ten yrs. earlier, had Sarah, Abigail, and Hannah, all bapt. 23 Apr. 1676; and Jacob, 18 Feb. 1677. He had been a soldier in Moseley's comp. in the gr. Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675. He d. of smallpox, as did, prob. all his ch. 1678. JAMES, Plymouth 1633, first occup. of the little hill, where the early pilgrims had been bur. was that yr. at Saco, perhaps, as in Haz. Coll. I. 326, or Folsom, 33, 125; by w.

JAMES, Swanzey, was a lieut. and Baylies says rep. 1690. He may have been the same as the foregoing. JOB, Duxbury, br. of Daniel, m. 15 May 1634, Rebecca, d. of William Collier, had John; Job; Daniel; and Rebecca, b. 26 Aug. 1654; seems to have been much giv. to migrat. was at Yarmouth, among the fencibles, 1643, again at D. 1646, at Eastham 1652; and his d. is not ment. but the w. or wid.

JOHN, Lewis finds at Lynn 1642, and says he d. 8 Oct. 1703; but of w. or fam. nothing. JOHN, Boston, s. of Samuel of [[vol. 1, p. 428]] the same, was, prob. b. in Eng. m. 30 Dec. 1651, Susanna, youngest ch. of William Hutchinson, wh. had been tak. by the Ind. 1643, when they k. her wid. mo. had Samuel, b. 24 Mar. 1656; Mary, 6 Oct. 1658; John, 23 Jan. 1660, prob. d. soon; Ann, 7 Mar. 1661; John, again, 17 Jan. 1666; Hannah, Dec. 1668; and William, 13 July 1671; perhaps Elisha, and other ch. whose names are not heard, rem. bef. 1664 to look after lds. of Hutchinson, to the Narraganset, when the jurisdict. of Conn. appoint. him and others to be magistr. there, and d. early in 1707.

JOHN, Boston, m. 10 Nov. 1659, Susanna, d. of Nicholas Upshur; but this rec. is more prob. of Joseph Cox, yet John and Susanna Cole by rec. had John, b. 22 Jan. 1661. JOHN, Hadley 1666, freem. that yr. is the same as Cowles. He was call. farmer, to disting. him from the other John, the carpenter, when both liv. at Hartford; and the object of change in surname was to prevent confus. but it has increas. the evil. As well as the carpenter John, this farmer had ch. John, Samuel, and perhaps others. JOHN, Salem, m. 28 May 1667, Mary Knight, had John, b. 18 Nov. foll.; Thomas, Nov. 1669, d. soon; Mary, 1 Sept. 1671; and Hannah, 12 Dec. 1674.

JOHN, Farmington, s. of John, the Hartford carpenter, may be the man, wh. by w. Rachel had John, aged 24; Rachel, perhaps wid. of Joseph Smith, 21; Samuel, 13; and Nathaniel, 11, when his will of Sept. 1689, and his inv. of Nov. foll. were brot. in. But no slight uncertain. attends his inquiry. Ano. JOHN of Farmington, perhaps s. of the Cowles farmer, had Dorothy, bapt. 3 July 1681; and Lydia, 22 Mar. 1685. Under Cowles the cloud may be scattered or increas. JOHN, Gloucester, by w. Mehitable had Daniel, b. 14 May 1669. JOHN, Pemaquid 1674. JOHN, Groton, had a d. perhaps Hepzibah, b. 20 Feb. 1672.
