Sarah there bapt. Sunday foll. and Mary, 19 Nov. 1648; in 1658 rem. to New London, and to the then adjoin. town of Norwich at its first settlem. 1659; but, high as is her authority on such a point, I hesitate to adopt Miss Caulkins's opin. that, intermed. betw. Salem and New London, he was of Saybrook. Tho. honor. with the office of constable at Norwich 1669, he went back to N. L. and there d. 1683, were part of his farm preserves in the harbor the name of Allyn's point. Other ch. beside those at Salem he had, as Hannah and Deborah, both prob. at N. L. Sarah m. 17 Feb. 1659, George Geer; Hannah m. Thomas Rose; and Deborah was unm. at d. of f. *SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 10 May 1661, Hannah, d. of Rev. Thomas Walley, had Thomas, b. 22 Mar. 1665; Samuel, 19 Jan. 1667; Joseph, 7 Apr. 1671; Hannah, 4 Mar. 1673; and Elizabeth 26 Nov. 1681, wh. d. at 17 yrs. was rep. three yrs. 1682-4. His w. d. 23 Oct. 1711, and he d. 25 Nov. 1726. THOMAS, Wethersfield 1636, not migrat. from Watertown, for Bond has not nam. him, was br. of Matthew, with wh. he had extraord. controvers. in the law, as is fairly infer. from Trumbull's Col. Rec. I. 211, was made freem. 1652, rep. 1656; and soon after d. as might be conclud. from not seeing his name as rep. in any yr. subseq. nor in the list of freem. for that town 1669; yet he may have rem. to Middletown, as no list of that sort is found from that place in Trumbull, and one of the name there was deac. wh. d. 16 Oct. 1688, having had no ch. but leav. wid. Martha, perhaps, wh. had been wid. of Roger Jepson, and d. 1690. She calls, in her will, Obadiah A. of M. cousin. Y. not e is seen in his last syl. tho. in his bapt. rec. Apr. 1604 (if he were s. of Samuel of Chelmsford Co. Essex), the spell. is the other way. THOMAS, Barnstable, had Samuel, b. 10, bapt. 18 Feb. 1644; John, bapt. 27 Sept. 1646; and Mehitable, bapt. 26 Nov. 1648; and he d. Nov. 1680, at gr. age. Mehitable m. 1 June 1667, Samuel Annable of the same. His first w. was nam. Winifred; the sec. was a wid. but surnames are not found. THOMAS, Windsor, s. of Matthew of the same, perhaps b. in Eng. m. 21 Oct. 1658, Abigail, d. of Rev. John Warham, had John, b. 17 Aug. 1659, wh. d. young; Matthew, 5 Jan. 1661; Thomas, 11 Mar. 1663; John, again, 24 June 1665; Samuel, 3 Nov. 1667; Jane, 22 July 1670; Abigail, 17 Oct. 1672; Sarah, 13 July 1674; Esther, 29 Jan. 1676; and Benjamin, 1680. He was made freem. 1659, and esteem. in the milit. serv. in wh. he rose to be capt. and d. 14 Feb. 1696. THOMAS, Windsor, s. of the preced. m. 6 Jan. 1686, Martha, sec. d. of Simon Wolcott, wh. had Martha, b. 1 Sept. liv. only two days, and the mo. liv. only four days more, for she d. 7 Sept. of next yr. and in any other particul. nothing is kn. WILLIAM, Stonington, had John, George, Jane, and Elizabeth to wh. on his d. 7 Sept. 1671, he left his prop. speak. of his w. as if she liv. near Barnstaple in Devonsh. For the deficiencies of this article, and the difficulty of determin. betw. Allyn, and Allen, and [[vol. 1, p. 45]] Allyne, or Alleyne, I must confess, that, after long research, satisfact. is unattain. in sev. cases, so many individ. have, perhaps capricious. at various times, writ. their fam. names in differ. ways.
ALMY or ALMOND, CHRISTOPHER, Portsmouth, R. I. s. of William, b. in Eng. was an Assist. 1690. JOB, Portsmouth, R. I. br. of the preced. by w. Mary, d. of Christopher Unthank of Warwick, had William and Christopher, tw. Susanna, Audrey, Deborah, Catharine, and Mary, an perhaps minors, when he d. 1684. JOHN, Plymouth 1643, perhaps br. of the preced. m. Mary, d. of James Cole, rem. to Portsmouth, R. 1. was a capt. in Philip's war, 1675, as named in Church's Mem. 53, and d. 1676. WILLIAM, Lynn, perhaps as early as 1631, went home, and came again, 1635, in the Abigail, aged 31, with w. Audrey, 32, and ch. Annis, 8; and Christopher, 3; rem. 1637, prob. to Sandwich, and certainly was freem. of Portsmouth, R. I. 1655. His will names ch. Christopher, John, Job, Ann, w. of John Green, and Catharine, w. of a West, whose bapt. name was Bartholomew.
ALSOP, or ALSUP, DANIEL, New Haven, youngest s. of Joseph the first d. 11 Jan. 1689, unm. He was a sea capt. GEORGE, Milford 1667, d. a. 1680; but was not constant resid. there, and notice of w. or ch. is not found, so that prob. he never m. Perhaps Elizabeth A. mem. of the ch. at M. in Feb. 1643, was his sis. for Sylvanus Baldwin, her s. b. some yrs. after her m. that yr. with Richard B. calls hims. "near kinsman"of George A. JOSEPH, New Haven, had come, at the age of 14, to Boston in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, from London, went to New Haven early, took o. of fidel. in 1644, bef. 1647 m. Elizabeth the eldest d. of William Prestol, had Joseph; Elizabeth b. 22 June 1650; Sarah, 8 Sept. 1652, but by ch. rec. worthy of very little reward, 15 Sept. 1651; Mary, 3 Oct. 1654; Abigail, 4 Sept. not as ch. rec. says 4 Nov. 1656; all bapt. 26 Apr. 1657; Hannah, b. 2 Dec. 1659; John, 3 Jan. 1662; Lydia, 26 July 1665; Daniel, 13 Aug. 1667; and Jemima, 10 Feb. 1670. He d. 8 Nov. 1698; and of the ch. this report is giv. Sarah, d. prob. unm. 24 Jun. 1699; Mary m. 2 Nov. 1680, as his sec. w. John Miles; Abigail m. 14 July 1680, John Rowe; Lydia m. 8 Nov. 1688, James Trowbridge; Elizabeth m. Thomas Talmadge; and Jemina m. 24 Mar. 1692 John Paine. Hannah was a busy money making maiden, wh was Adm'x of est. of her br. Daniel, and yrs. after bot. up the shares of her sis. in the est. of her f. manag. by her with much discret. Haz. II. 247. She d. unm. JOSEPH, New Haven, eldest s. of the preced. m. 25 Nov. 1672, Abigail, d. of John Thompson the first of the same, and d. 12 Jan. 1691. His will, of 1687, pro. 16 Feb. 1691, gave to his w. (wh. prob. had no ch.) and his brs. John and Daniel, all his est. a. 1490. His wid. m. 1694, John Miles. KEY, Boston 1668, merch. had w. Mary, who soon after his d. m. Capt. William Turner, whose victory at the Falls fight, 1676, gave [[vol. 1, p. 46]] his name to the spot. RICHARD, Newtown, L. I. 1686, by w. Hannah had Thomas, b. 7 Sept. 1687; Richard; John; Hannah; Deborah; Amy; and Elizabeth d. Oct. 1718, aged 58; but his wid. wh. d. 23 Aug. 1757, was 90. He is suppos. to have been brot. in youth by his uncle Thomas Wardell of Newtown, wh. had no ch. and have A. large est. See Riker's Ann. of Newtown, 335. THOMAS, Stratford, wh. came in the Elizabeth and Ann from London, 1635, aged 20, I think must have been br. of Joseph of New Haven, as they came together, and the younger, in 1651, inform. the Court, that his br. without nam. him, had d. at S. leav. some prop. and no more is kn. It may be, that the f. of these youths was that John, rated for a subsidy in 1598, to the same parish and at the same time with William Shakespear, nor would it be very extrav. to presume, that he, too, went up to London from Stratford on Avon. See my notes on Edward Jackson. TIMOTHY, New Haven 1646, mariner.
ALSOB, THOMAS, Salem vill. was a soldier, k. by the Ind. 16 July (unless 16 May be nearer the day of fight, and the other only date of rec.) 1690, with others at Casco. See Felt Ann. II. 509. Yet Willis I. 205, refer. to the same rec. spells the sufferer's name, as seems, at least, equal. likely to be correct, Alsop. But I would gladly see his origin.

But his w. b. 5 Apr. 1655, d. 26 Aug. 1756, reckon. by the vulgar on the rec. with the common fondness for exagger. in her 103d yr. She was the oldest person that ever d. in N. but exact truth, after the correct. of old style, makes her age 101 yrs. 4 mos. and 11 days.

Lancaster, where he conform. to the ch. of Eng. at the time of ejectm. had the honor of A. M. at Oxford, and is not mark. in Mather's Catal. 1697, as d. See Calamy, II. 419. NATHANIEL, of unkn. parentage, like the preced. to wh. perhaps he was br. being gr. of II. C. 1653, was sometime connect. with the coll. prob. as tutor, went home and was sett. as min. at Kirkby in Co. Lancaster, whence in 1662, as non-conform. he was eject. Calamy, II. 417.

Of the s. the oldest and the youngest, perhaps sett. at New London, and Miss Caulkins in her Hist. 264, lends countenance to the tradit. tho. of John only does she speak of perman. resid. 374; while of Nathaniel we kn. that he d. 1736, and was f. of that Nathaniel, celebr. for success of his Almanacs many yrs. and more for the super. eloq. of his S. Fisher, H. C. 1774, the first rep. from Boston in the Fed. Congr. 1789. WILLIAM, Braintree, br. of John the first, elder by fam. tradit. b. 6 Oct. 1605, came a. 1638, by w.

He was gr. in the foll. yr. made freem. 1647, soon after went home, and in 1648 was sett. as collea. at Wrentham in Co. Suff. with his uncle, John Phillips, wh. had m. a sis. of his f. and was then a mem. of the Westminster Assemb. near the close of their anxious labors of more than five and a half years. Bef. the Mayor and Aldermen of London, 5 Nov. 1651, he preach. the annivers. sermon on the gunpowder plot, at St. Pauls, and was eject. 1662, d. 21 July 1689, in his 66th yr. By his first w. Susanna, he had only Elizabeth wh. m. Robert Smith, a min. in the same ch. wh. d. in Aug. 1705; and that w. was bur. 6 Jan. 1652. For sec. w. he took, 26 Jan. 1653, Elizabeth Wales, had Ruth, and Philip, both d. young; and this w. d. 19 Feb. 1683. These details are gather. from a Hist. of the Congregat. ch. at Wrentham in Old Eng. by John Brown, 1854; and from Hunter in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 169. Prob. [[vol. 1, p. 50]] his br. John, wh. if we judge by order of names in the rec. of Wrentham, was the younger, went home with our scholar. Of this name nine had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. none at Yale, one at Dart. and three at other N. E. coll. as Farmer found.
AMEY, or AMEE, JOHN, Woburn 1649, by w. Martha, d. of Edward Johnson, the historian, had Mary, b. 27 Feb. 1650; rem. to Boston 1653, had John, 4 or 12 Mar. 1654; Martha, 10 Nov. 1655; and William, 24 Mar. 1657; beside Martha, again, 23 Feb. 1660.

AMOS, HUGH, Boston, freem. 1666, was of the 2d ch. had John, bapt. there that yr. perhaps rem. to Norwich, where he had Mary, b. Jan. 1671; and Samuel, Jan. 1673. These three ch. with ano. d. Ann div. his est. in 1707. He liv. on the E. side of the riv. now Preston, and his name designates one of the beautif. ponds of that town.
AMSBURY. See Armsbee.
AMSDEN, ISAAC, Cambridge, m. 8 June 1654, Frances Perriman, whose f. is unkn. had Isaac, b. 1656; and Jacob, 17 Nov. 1657; both bapt. 3 Nov. 1661, the mo. being adm. of the ch. few days bef. and he d. 7 Apr. 1659, if we take Harris's Epit. 169, for conclusive; but we might judge from Pro. rec. where ment. of admin. giv. 25 June 1661, to his wid. that he had d. only 19 days bef. The wid. m. 14 Feb. 1663, Richard Cutter. ISAAC, Cambridge, s. of the preced. m. 17 May 1677, Jane Rutter, perhaps d. of John of Sudbury, had Elizabeth b. 3 Feb. foll. Isaac, 29 Aug. 1680; John 28 Dec. 1685; Thomas, 9 Jan. 1687; Jacob, 29 Feb. 1688; and Abraham 15 Oct. 1692, as suppl. by a scrupul. writer in Geneal. Reg. XV. 21, tho. I feel compel to change an impossib. date. JACOB, Cambridge, s. of Isaac the first, d. 11 June 1701, as we learn from Harris, 29, and any thing, else is learn. from nobody. JOHN, Hatfield, perhaps s. of the first Isaac by a w. bef. Frances, or even bef. he sett. at Cambridge, or came from Eng. there this man liv. ten yrs. but at H. d. 1696, leav. John and Isaac, of wh. the latter d. young, and the former resid. at Deerfield, where he was drown. 1742, and two of his s. were k. by the Ind. 1746. Descend. may be found there. Matchless Mitchell spells the name Embsden.
ANCHOR, THOMAS, Boston 1646.
ANDERSON, ARCHIBALD, Lynn, employ. at the iron works, came from Scotland, and d. 13 Aug. 1661. DAVID, New Haven 1639, whip. for drunk. and not much better in 1641, as in Col. Rec. I. 28 and 59 appears. DAVID, Charlestown 1675, prob. s. of John of Boston, by w. Catharine Richardson, m. 12 Sept. 1679, had John, wh. d. that yr. at 3 mos. David, bapt. 23 Sept. 1677, perhaps a posthum. ch. for his f. d. in May preced. on his way, as master of the ship Blessing, home from London. His first w. m. 5 June 1667, was Hannah Nichols, wh. d. 18 July 1671. GAWEN, Roxbury, [[vol. 1, p. 51]] freem. 13 May1640, of wh. no more is heard. JOHN, Boston 1647, shipwright, permit. in 1652 to build a wharf, m. 3 Jan. 1655, I suppose for sec. w. Mary Hodges of Charlestown (a former w. Jane hav. d. 4 May preced. and his s. Samuel, prob. inf. d. 10 July foll.), by her had Joanna, b. 25 Dec. foll. and Ann, 5 May 1657; and he d. 28 Sept. 1677. We learn from his will of 3 days preced. pro. 31 Oct. foll. that he had elder ch. as Emma, wh. m. 17 July 1655, John Brackenbury, afterwards m. Joseph Lynde, and d. 2 Sept. 1703; Catharine, wh. m. 19 July 1635, John Phillips, and d. 24 Feb. 1699; Mary, uh. as wid. Lynde, m. 27 July 1682, Rev. Thomas Shepard, and, next, Hon. Samuel Hayman, and was bur. 20 Aug. 1717; and Joanna Newman; but much uncertain. hangs over these two last ds. i. e. what Lynde was h. of the former, what Newman of the latter, tho. much inquiry has been bestow. He had also Henry, who d. in Eng. and left his prop. to the f. JOHN, Ipswich 1665, whose inv. was render. 3 May 1701, had been a soldier in the Province serv. Possib. but not prob. he may have been one of the unhappy prisoners of the battle at Worcester, 3 Sept. 1651 (that "crowning mercy" to Oliver Cromwell), of wh. 272 were ship. in Nov. after, in the John and Sarah, from London, to be sold here, arr. in May foll. at Boston. Beside this John, Alister, David, and William A. were victims of the same cruel policy in the same ship. Part of the prisoners of Dunbar, import. in the former yr. had been well receiv. as Cotton wrote to Cromwell, and sold for 6, 7, or 8 yrs. servitude. Most of these unfortunate young men d. of scurvy, or of broken hearts; and some of the exiles ran away, perhaps with good-will of their purchasers, so that not one in fifty of these soldiers that foll. Charles II. in the fatal fields of Dunbar and Worcester, and were sold in Boston, prob. five hundred in num. liv. to have fams. in our country. JOHN, Salem 1673, a shipmaster, had been, perhaps, of Boston, 1655, and adm. with w. Mary, of the sec. ch. 1672. RICHARD, New Maven, took o. of fidel. 7 Apr. 1657. ROBERT, in Mass. 6 June 1637 fin. for contempt £50, wh. was soon remit. may have been only a transient visitor. See Col. Rec. I. 198,245. WILLIAM, New Haven, took o. of fidel. 7 Apr. 1657, but neither of him. nor of Richard, who may have been his br. is any more seen. WILLIAM, Watertown, of wh. Dr. Bond found only, that he sat on a coroner's jury 26 July 1669. Gr. of this name up to 1828 Farmer found two at Harv. two at Dart. one at Yale, and eleven at the other coll. in N. E. and N. J. chiefly, I presume from the latter.
ANDREW, JOHN, Wickford 1674. NICHOLAS, Marblehead 1683, freem.that yr. SAMUEL, Cambridge, s. of William of the same, b. prob. in Eng. m. 27 Sept. 1652 (when prefix of respect is giv. on the rec.), Elizabeth White, whose f. is not kn. and wh. d. 24 Jan. 1687, aged 57, had Samuel, b. 29 Jan. 1656, H. C. 1675; William, June 1658; both bapt. [[vol. 1, p. 52]] bef. Mitchell's Reg. begins; John, 2, bapt. 10 Mar. 1661, wh. d. at 32 yrs.; Elizabeth bapt. 12 Apr. 1663; Thomas, 21 May 1665, d. soon; Mary, 6 Jan. 1667, d. July foll. Thomas, again, 29 Mar. 1668; beside Jonathan, wh. d. 8 May 1700, aged a. 30; and Mary, again, wh. d. 29 Feb. 1672. He was often clk. treasr. and selectman,and d. 21 June 1701, aged a. 80. See the invalu. "Cambridge Ch. gathering," by Newell with appx. of Mitchell, and Harris's Epit. A person, "well skill. in mathemat." of this name, as is ment. in Haz. I. 591, and Belkn. I. 57, is suppos. to be this Cambridge man. See Col. Rec. III. 329 and 361. SAMUEL, eldest s. of the preced. was min. of Milford, ord. 15 Nov. 1685, m. Abigail, d. of Gov. Robert Treat, wh. d. 5 Dec. 1727, had Samuel, and prob. others, and d. 21 Jan. 1738. A sec. w. Abigail, d. 9 Sept. 1742. The name has a final s. in the Conn. rec. but the Rev. owner reject. the addit.; the ch. and town rec. of Cambridge admit the letter, tho. the indisput. authority of the Coll. catal. deny, and discrimin. yet in his Hecatompolis (ch. 7 of the Magn. I.) Mather sanctifies the intrusion. WILLIAM, Cambridge, mariner, the freem. of 4 Mar. 1634, by w. Mary, wh. d. 19 Jan. 1640, had Samuel and perhaps other ch. and d. bef. 1655. WILLIAM, Ipswich, was sch. master there, and in sev. other towns, may not have been br. of Rev. Samuel, and d. 19 July 1683. But in Geneal. Rev. VIII. 19, the extr. from the interleav. Almanac of Sewall, noticing this event is remark. diverse in the name from the careful writer on the Ipswich gr. sch. in G. R. VI. 69, wh. makes Thomas Andrews succeed famous Cheever in the sch. 1 Aug. 1660, and teach. 23 yrs. and d. 10 July 1683. Vehemently do I suspect, that one or the other is mistaken, that only one man is intend. and the date of d. 10 or 19, easily reconcil. Of this name, without s. in 1834, as Farmer mark. three had been gr. at Harv. three at Yale, and one at some other N. E. coll.
ANDREWS, ANDROWS (or ANDROS, sometimes), often ANDROS, ABRAHAM, Fairfield, s. perhaps of Francis, rem. to Waterbury, had eight ch. Rebecca, b. 1672; Mary, 1674; Hannah, 1678; Abraham, 1680; Sarah, bapt. 9 Mar. 1684; Rachel, 1686; John, 1688; and Thomas, 1699. ABRAHAM, Waterbury, s. of John of Farmington, m. Sarah, d. of Robert Porter of Farmington, had Sarah, bapt. 9 Mar. 1681; Abraham, 17, certain. not, as said somewhere, 27 July 1687; at Farmington ch. both; beside Mary, bapt. 19 May 1689; John, Benjamin, and Robert. He d. 3 May 1693, leav. as appears by Pro. rec. these five ch. and a wid. Between that Pro. rec. at Hartford, and the town rec. of F. as well as of W. disagreem. may be found; at least it was hard to guess, with confidence, after large inquiry, which Abraham was s. of Francis, wh. of John; and Hinman, wh. rather darkens the confus. saves hims. from anxiety by acknowledg. only one Abraham, while he informs us, that sometimes the name is giv. Andros, or Andrus. His report of Francis gives him no Abraham, and tho.[[vol. 1, p. 53]] he allows one to John, the report is incomplete. BENJAMIN, Farmington, s. of John, by w. Mary, had Benjamin. b. 1683; John, 1685; both, with their mo. bapt. 10 Jan. 1687, prob. d. young; Mary, 26 Aug. 1688; Stephen, prob. 21 Sept. 1690; beside Daniel, b. 7 Feb. bapt. 10 Sept. 1693; Samuel, 20, bapt. 24 Nov. 1695; Joanna, b. 24 May 1698; James, 1 Aug 1701. *DANIEL, Salem, sch. master, in 1672, was, Dr. Bond thinks, s. of Thomas of Watertown, liv. in the pt. call. the vill. now Danvers, for wh. in the June Sess. 1689, the first yr. of liberty recov. from Andros, he was rep. and in 1692 was charg. with the preposter. crime of witchcraft, perhaps bec. he kn. more than some of his neighb. but was releas. early in the yr. foll. when reason prevail. over the influence of Cotton Mather. He d. 3 Dec. 170, aged 59, and s. Thomas, 24, with Samuel, 19, d. next mo. all of the smallpox. DANIEL, Farmington, s. of John, had Daniel, b. 9 Mar. bapt. 20 July 1673; Mary, 9, bapt. 13 Dec. 1674; Joseph, b. 10 Aug. 1676; Mary, 1678; John, 10 June 1680; Martha, 17, bapt. 23 July 1682; Hannah, bapt. 18 Jan. 1685; Paul, 2, not 3 Jan. 1687; Stephen, 1 Dec. 1689; Ebenezer, b. 28 Aug. 1692, d. in few wks. EDWARD, Newport 1639, perhaps rem. to Saco, at least one of the name was freem. there 1653, acc. Folsom, 123, of the planta. I suppose he means, for he does not appear in the Col. list, d. 1668. EDWARD, Hartford 1655, sw. freem. 1657, had Edward, wh. d. unm. and Solomon; beside ds. Mary, and Sarah, of wh. the last m. Henry Treat of H. and next David Forbes. He d. 1673. EDWARD, Warwick, among freem. there 1655, but no w. or ch. is heard of; may possib. be he who was early of Newport. FRANCIS, Hartford 1639, had John, bapt. 27 Sept. 1646; and Thomas, 2 Jan. 1648; rem. to Fairfield, there d. 1662, or 3, his will being of 6 .June of the former. pro. 5 Mar. of the latter yr. In it he provides for four s. and five ds. viz. in addit. to the two bef. ment. were Jeremiah, and Abraham, ds. Elizabeth Mary; Esther; Rebecca, wh. bec. sec. w. 7 July 1678, of Samuel Benedict of Norwalk; and Ruth; beside Hannah, wh. had m. John Crampton, after of Norwalk. Quite uncert. is it, whether his s. Abraham were the man, wh. d. 1693, or he wh. had ch. 1699. *HENRY, Taunton, an orig. purchas. rep. 1639 and four next yrs. d. 1652, is chiefly kn. from his will of 13 Mar. in that yr. pro. 10 Feb. foll. in wh. are nam. his w. Mary; and ch. Henry; Mary, w. of William Hodges; Sarah; Abigail; and gr.s. John Hodges. The wid. in her will of 14 Feb. 1654, calls hers. 43 yrs. old, and speaks of Sarah as little. Baylies, II. 282. In Emery, I. 48 he is shown to have built the first meeting-ho. but this author inadvert. finds him permis. to erect a saw-mill in 1659, wh. must be refer. to his s. HENRY, Taunton, wh. was k. by the Ind. in Philip's war; and tho. descend. are said to be num. I regret that no acco. of m. or name of w. or ch. is kn. JAMES, Saco, s. of Samuel of the same, rem. with his mo. on her sec. m. to Falmouth, m. Sarah, d. of Michael Mitton, had Elisha, wh. was a lieut. so
