PETER, New London 1650, is not thot. to be s. of any in our country, nor to have had w. or ch. at his d. May or June 1655, div. his prop. among John Gager and other neighb. PETER, Pemaquid, in 1674 sw. fidel. to Mass.

COLLISHAW, or COWLISHAWE, as ch. rec. has it, WILLIAM, Boston [[vol. 1, p. 437]] 1633, came, possib. at the same time as Cotton, with w. Ann, and Sarah Morrice her d. for the three were rec. into our ch. the mo. foll. the adm. of our teacher; freem. 4 Mar. 1634. No more is kn.

COLT, or COULT, JOHN, Windsor 1668, liv. to old age, had Sarah, bapt. at Hartford, says Hinman, 7 Feb. 1647, and sev. s. of wh. one or more sett. at Lyme. In his sec. Ed. 672-8, Hinman gives many names of descend. yet with no precis. of line. But the orig. is quite mythical. The sett. was b. in Colchester, Co. Essex, a. 50 ms. from London, came to Dorchester when a. 11 yrs. old, rem. to Hartford a. 1638, as says the book, with no inherent improb. but it is sure to encourage distrust of [[vol. 1, p. 438]] such tale, that he is made gr.gr.gr.gr.s. of a peer of Eng. wh. was dispossesc. of his est. & c. Such examples may, I hope, be shun. and not imitat. Mr. Hinman had too respectab. a name to encourage the relat. of such old wives' invent.

COLTMAN, or COULTMAN, JOHN, Wethersfield 1645, a sch.master, wh. had been a serv. with Leonard Chester, or his wid. Mary, wh. in her will of 20 Nov. 1688, then wid. of Hon.

He next m. 26 Mar. 1685, Esther Mansfield, perhaps d. of Samuel, and had seven s. and six ds. by her, of wh. only Esther, b. 23 Oct. 1687 is kn. to me; but the last, his seventeenth ch. was b. aft. his d. 14 May 1713. His name is misprint. Cotton in Geneal. Reg. XII. 176, and repeat. of course, in Index. GEORGE, Springfield 1644, came from Sutton Coldfield, as is said, Co. Warwick, a. 8 ms. from Birmingham, m.

Sarah, d. of Matthew Griswold, had only Sarah, b. 25 Sept. 1678, was a capt. freem. with Ephraim, 1681, perhaps liv. at Lyme, a short time, where this b. is on rec. Eleven in fifteen of this name, gr. at Yale, have been clerg.

COMBS, COMBE, COOMES, COOMBE, or COOMBS, FRANCIS, Plymouth 1666, s. of John. GEORGE, Charlestown, d. 27 July 1659, was, perhaps only a transient man. JOHN, Plymouth, freem. 1633, is call. gent. next [[vol. 1, p. 439]] yr. had w. Sarah, and s. Francis, seems to have d. bef. 1645, when William Spooner, wh. was his serv. in 1642, was by the Ct. order. to have charge of the childr. of Combs, and in 1666, the s. Francis got gr. of ld. in his f.'s right.

JOHN, Northampton, had there twelve ch. rem. to Springfield, and had one more, b. 1714. MICHAEL, Salem, by w. Joan had Michael, b. 22 Mar. 1669; and Joshua, 23 Feb. 1671. Sometimes this name has e final, instead of s; and other var.

COMBY, or COMBEE, ROBERT, Boston 1681.

COMEE, or COMY, DAVID, Woburn, had Mary, b. 30 Jan. 1663; rem. to Concord 1664, d. 31 Mar. 1676. His d. Mary m. 24 May 1688, Joshua Kibby. This may be the same name as the next.

CONANT, CHRISTOPHER, Plymouth 1623, came in the Ann, had sh. in div. of la. next yr. but was gone in 1627, perhaps to Cape Ann, for he had not sh. in the div. of cattle that yr. But if he had gone home, he must have come back to our country, for he was on the first jury for crim. trial here, impan. for the case of Walter Palmer for manslaught. Nov. 1630. EXERCISE, Salem, s. of Roger, freem. 1663, one of the found. of the ch. in Beverly, on wh. side he liv. 1667, rep. 1682-4; had w. Sarah, s.

ROGER, Salem, was one of the earliest sett. of Mass. hav. been in 1623 at Plymouth, next at Nantasket, thence rem. to Cape Ann, there resid. betw. one and two yrs. and rem. to Naumkeag, a. 1627. He was s. of Richard and Agnes, br. it is said of Dr. John of the gr. Assemb. of Divines at Westminster, tho. ano. acco. makes his f. William, b. in the hundred of E. Budleigh, bapt. at the parish ch. of the same, in Devon, 9 Apr. 1593; appoint. 1625, gov., agent, or superintend. for the Dorchester project. of the planta. as Endicott, wh. supersed. him, was, 1629, for the Gov. and Comp. of Mass. bef. the com. of Winthrop the first chart. Gov. in the country. [Felt, I. 106. Hubbard, 109, 10.] Gibbs says his gr.f. John was of French, i. e. Norman, extract. his ancest. for many generat. hav. been at Gittisham, betw. Honiton and Ottery St. Mary's. He req. to be freem. 19 Oct. 1630, was adm. 18 May foll. was rep. at the first gen. Ct. of Mass. 1634, d. 19 Nov. 1679, in 87th yr. at Beverly (wh. he earnestly desir. to be name Budleigh). Young, Chron. 24, gives him four s. I think he had five; but even the assiduous fondness of Felt, in a Mem. of gr. dilig. filling fourteen pages of Geneal. Reg. II. has not furnish. complete fam. acco. His abstr. of the will, made 1 Mar. 1678, refers to s. Exercise and childr.; s. Lot's ten ch.; gr.ch. John, s. of Roger; gr.ch. Joshua C. whose f. may have been John, or Roger; [[vol. 1, p. 441]] ds.

Of Exercise, perhaps the third s. b. at Cape Ann, a. 1636, bapt. 24 Dec. 1637; Joshua; and Lot, above, is all that is kn. to me; John was of Beverly ch. 1671, prob. d. bef. his f.; Roger, the first b. ch. at Salem is spok. of next. His w. was Sarah, but neither h. nor w. unit. early with the ch. ROGER, SaIem, s. of the preced. the first ch. (said the rec. as early as 1640) b. in Salem (tho. the c]aim has been by a recent tradit. put in for John Massey), and had a gr. of ld. on that score, says Felt; had John, bapt. 26 May 1662, was of Marblehead, there d. Saturday 15 June 1672, as his w. wrote in her Bible, still to be seen. His youngest s. Samuel d. not 9 May preced. as oft. said, but Saturday 4 May, as his mo. wrote. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 255. At Charlestown the fam. was cont. Four of the name had, 1834, been gr. at Harv. five at Yale, and five at the other N. E. coll.

Mary, d. of Lyon Gardiner, d. 1712, in 78th yr. JOHN, Salem, perhaps, at least he is in Felt's list, as hav. gr. of ld. 1640, and he, and Ananias, prob. his s. were there in 1645; was of Southold, L. I. adm. freem. of Conn. 1662, as was John jr. perhaps his s.

CONDY, COUNDY, or CANDY, SAMUEL, Marblehead 1668-74, by first w. Rebecca had Esther, wh. m. a Green, perhaps Charles; and by sec. w. Ann had Ann, wh. m. a Salter, perhaps Matthew, as in his will of 9 Feb. 1678, Essex Inst. II. 277. is seen. It gives to Ann and her childr. and top Mary and Charles, ch. of Esther. THOMAS, a soldier in Turner's comp. Feb. 1676, prob. of Boston. WILLIAM, New London, had a lot gr. 1664, was master of a vessel in the West Ind. trade, m.
