ISAAC, Salem, m. 3 May 1664, Elizabeth d. of Anthony Buxton, had Elizabeth b. 23 Sept. 1663; Isaac, 9 Jan. 1667, d. young; and Mary, 12 Nov. 1668; Abigail, 12 July 1670; Hannah, 15 Oct. 1672; John, 23 Mar. 1674; Rachel, 20 Feb. 1676; Ebenezer, 24 Dec. 1677; Samuel, 1 Oct. 1679, wh. d. the same day, as did three other ch. of his b. last preced. in a few days aft. the latest. But the transer. in Essex Inst. II. 42 may be good, and the rec. bad, as to a ch. com. betw. Abigail and Hannah. JACOB, Plymouth, younger s. of Francis, b. in Holland, came with his mo. in the Ann, 1623, m. 1646, Damaris, d. of Stephen Hopkins, had Elizabeth b. 18 Jan. 1648, wh. m. a. 1667, John Dotey; Caleb, 29 Mar. 1651; Jacob, 26 Mar. 1633, and liv. to 1748; Mary. 12 Jan. 1658; Martha, 16 Mar. 1660; Francis, 5 Jan. 1663, d. soon, and Ruth, 17 Jan. 1666. He m. sec. w. 18 Nov. 1669, Elizabeth wid. of William Shurtleff. He d. 1676, and his wid. m. 1 Jan. 1689, her third h. Hugh Cole, wh. outliv. her. 

Martha m. Elkanah Cushman, and d. 17 [[vol. 1, p. 447]] Sept. 1722. JACOB, Plymouth, s. of the preced. m. 29 Dec. 1681, Lydia, d. of the sec. John Miller of the same, had William, b. 5 Oct. 1688; Lydia, 18 May 1685; Rebecca, 19 Nov. 1688; Jacob, 18 June 1690; Margaret, 3 Nov. 1695; and Josiah, 14 May 1699. JAMES, Boston, d. 15 Dec. 1690. Perhaps he was the mariner, wh. m. Sarah, d. of Samuel Very of Salem, and she next m. a Stover. JOHN, Plymouth 1633, call. senr. prob. rem. 1643 to Rehoboth, is not kn. to have been relat. of the succeed. Perhaps he rem. to Warwick, was town serj. 1651, freem. there 1655, and prob. d. that yr. for his wid. Mary m. 1656, Thomas Relph. He left s. John, and d. Elizabeth wh. m. 24 Dec. 1666, John Harrod. JOHN, Plymouth, call. junr. s. of Francis, came with his f. in the Mayflower, was old eno. to be tax. in 1634 as high as either his f. or John senr. m. 28 Mar. 1634, Sarah, d. of Richard Warren, had four ch. liv. in 1650, says Bradford, 453; of wh. perhaps Esther, b. 16 Aug. 1650, was one; Mercy, 25 July 1654, ano. was Mary, 1657; at least one must have been m. and had more than one ch. to justify the extr. boast for old Francis to the letter, that in 1600 he "hath seen his children's childr. have childr." Jane, the sis. of John, had done her part for the blessing, I presume; and his d. Sarah m. 20 Nov. 1652, Arthur Hathaway; and Elizabeth m. 28 Nov. 1661, Daniel Wilcox. But in this branch the exult. phrase of Bradford fails of truth. He was deac. but disagreed with Reyner; rem. and was min. of Dartmouth 1676, of wh. he was one of the first purch. and rep. 1673; and was liv. 1694, the oldest surv. perhaps, of the male passeng. in the Mayflower; and d. 23 Nov. 1695. One of his ds. m. Thomas Tabor. JOHN, Salem 1637, came, perhaps, in the Abigail, 1635, aged 27, freem. 18 May 1642, had Sarah, bapt. 19 Sept. 1640; Elizabeth 16 May 1641; and Mary, 22 Oct. 1643. He d. I suppose, in 1650, when his inv. was brot. in. JOHN, Ipswich 1664. JOHN, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, of wh. I learn no more, unless that he had w. Ruth in 1682, then was 51 yrs. old, and John jr. prob. his s. was 26, and other s. Joseph and Thomas, beside sev. ds. and his will was record. 1691. As early as 1647 he was made one of two "water bailies" of the Col. if there be no mistake. One JOHN, a young man, Winthrop II. 97, says, was k. by accid. at Boston, 23 June 1643; and a JOHN was at Windsor 1644, wh. may have rem. to Stratford, and there was liv. 1667-77. JOHN, Portsmouth, R. I. s. of Thomas of the same, freem. 1678, was "licensed" 1688. tho. for what purpose I see not. He may have been one of the chief men at Tiverton or Dartmouth 1686; then having a fam. there. JOHN, Salem, m. 28 Dec. 1672, Mary, prob. d. of Anthony Buxton, had Mary, b. 11 Nov. 1673; John, 20 Aug. 1674; Elizabeth 7 Apr. 1676; Samuel, 3 Nov. 1678, d. next yr.; Joseph, 9 Mar. 1681; Hannah, 9 Sept. 1684; Lydia, 2 Mar. 1687; and Isaac, 16 Apr. 1689. JOHN, of Boston, was of the vestry of King's Chapel 1689; and a JOHN, a soldier in the comp. of Moseley, Dec. 1675, and again in Philip's war, 1676, at Hadley; may have been of Gloucester, m. 2 Feb. 1680, Mary Elwell, had John, b. 20 Nov. 1680; beside three wh. d. inf. and Mary, b. 1688. Babson thinks that his mo. was that wid. Rachel, wh. m. William Vinson, but his f. is unkn. JOHN, Middletown, at his d. 16 Jan. 1705, left ch. John, and Mary of full age; Daniel, 14 yrs.; Sarah, 12; Ebenezer, 7. His w. Hannah, d. of capt. Daniel Harris, could not have been the first. His will was made 15 Aug. 1698. 

JOHN, [[vol. 1, p. 448]] Warwick, perhaps s. of that John, whose wid. m. 1656, Thomas Relph, went to New Providence, and there had childr. as his w. Phebe alleg. when in 1684 she obt. divorce from him. JOHN, Hampton, m. 26 Nov. 1686, Mary Downs. JOHN, Windsor, s. perhaps of Nathaniel of the same, m. 1688, Sarah Fiske of Wenham, had John, b. 1692; and no more is seen of him. JOSEPH, Cambridge, elder br. of George, came in the Defence, 1635, aged 27. They were of Earl's Colne in Essex, and there had enjoy. the spiritual guidance of Shepard, wh. came in the same wh. freem. 3 Mar. 1636, rep. 1636-40, ar. co. 1640, had w. Elizabeth and ch. Joseph, b. 27 Dec. 1643; Elizabeth 16 Mar. or Aug. 1645; Mary, 30 Jan. 1647; Grace, 9 Dec. 1648, d. soon; Grace, again, 1 May 1630; and Ruth; all bapt. at C. I think it not unlikely, that after admin. on his br.'s est. he went home. JOSEPH, Cambridge, s. of the preced., H. C. 1660 or 61, remarkab. as it seems that so early in the exist. of the coll. ea. yr. should be entit. to one of this name, perhaps it may seem that the other was s. of Richard. But it is more strange that of neither is the date of death mark. in our catal. although both were gone in 1698. He m. 4 Dec. 1665, Martha, d. of John Stedman, had John, bapt. 26 Jan. 1668; and Joseph, a. 1671; beside Alice, prob. youngest ch. wh. m. a. 1694, Rev. John Whiting, and next, 19 May 1701, Rev. Timothy Stevens and bore childr. to both. JOSEPH, Wells, sw. alleg. 1680. JOSEPH, Portsmouth, R. I. perhaps s. of John of the same, was rep. 1704.

Stiles has not nam. the w. or was. that bore these; but ment. the d. of the f. 28 Feb. 1725. NOAH, Northampton, s. of first Aaron, liv. at Hartford first, there m. Sarah, prob. d. of Joseph Nash, had Joseph, b. a. 1680; Sarah, a. 1682; Elizabeth a. 1685; and at N. had Mary, 12 Mar. 1686; Noah, 1688; Miriam, 30 Sept. 1690; Eliakim, 6 May 1693; Esther, 21 May 1695; and Aaron, 3 Oct. 1697; and d. 1 June 1699. PEYTON, Saco 1635, call. gent. was clk. of the assemb. of Lygonia 1648. Folsom, 32. PHILIP, Cambridge, freem. 1647, d. 10 Feb. 1667, by w.

Philip, wh. prob. d. young, bapt. at C.; also Philip, again, bapt. 5 May 1661; John, 30 Aug. 1663; and Barnabas, 4 June 1665; as in matchless Mitchell's reg. appears. But it must be, that he had two ds. nam. Hannah, for town rec. shows d. of Hannah, 13 July 1654, and b. of Samuel, 1655. Sarah d. 12 May 1661. His will, of 18 July bef. his d. dispos. of ch. John, 3 yrs. old; Philip, 5; and Hannah, 9; leav. wid. Mary, to bring up others to trades. A discrepance betw. Mitchell and the inscript. on gr.stone of sec. Philip may be obs. if Harris, 57, has correctly giv. it, that he d. 25 Mar. 1718, aged 55 yrs. 10 mos. 25 days, so that by such comput. he was born 30 Apr. 1662. l?rob. the gr.stone is false, Mitchell may be foll. and we may suppose he was bapt. at 5 days old. RALPH, Charlestown 1640, may have had w. Sarah, adm. of the ch. 30 Nov. 1643. RICHARD, Charlestown, came in the Jonathan, 1639, aged 31, join. with the ch. 30 May 1641, liv. on Malden side, had w. Frances, and d. Mary, b. May 1649; was of friends of M. Matthew's preaching, and d. 14 Oct. 1658. His will names ch. of his w. by former h. Isaac, Thomas, Elizabeth and Sarah, Wheeler; but I think the s. were b. in Eng. Elizabeth m. 12 Sept. 1659, William Greene; and Sarah m. 18 Dec. 1660, John Greene. His wid. m. 5 Sept. 1659, Thomas Green; and his only d. Mary m. 1666, Samuel Green. RICHARD, Boston, tailor, came, it is said, from Gloucestersh. freem. 4 Mar. 1635, ar. co. 1643, lieut. 1656, rep. for Dover 1670; by w. Elizabeth had Elhanan, b. 30 June, bapt. 17 July 1636, d. Nov. foll.; Elisha, bef. ment. 16 Sept. bapt. 5 Nov. 1637, H. C. 1657; Elkanah, bapt. 12 Apr. 1640, but the town rec. gives a false date of b.; Joseph, b. 2, bapt. 8 May 1642, wh. may have been H. C. 1660, or 61; and Benjamin, bapt. 4 Aug. 1644, a. 5 days old, d. May foll. His will, made 18 Dec. 1671, pro. 25 Dec. 1673, names w. Elizabeth and only ch. Elisha, beside brs.

Obed, [[vol. 1, p. 450]] b. 1 Feb. 1681. ROBERT, Charlestown, freem. 2 June 1641, by w. Sarah had Samuel, b. 10 Aug. 1644. I feel some hesitat. in this case, whether he and Richard were not one, for Richard is not in the Col. rec. as freem. which would not, however, be very surpris. tho. rather observ.; but how Robert, whose name is not found in the ch. was adm. freem. is strange. ROBERT, Portsmouth, R. I. m. 5 Dec. 1678, Tamar, d. of John Tyler of Bristol, had Mary, b. 27 June 1682; Miriam, 9 Dec. 1689; and Samuel, 19 Dec. 1695. ROGER, Marshfield 1613. SAMSON, Gloucester, d.
