He d. 28 May 1687, "aged a. 93 yrs." is the add. in the report, Geneal. Reg. VII. 117, the latitude of wh. phrase may justify a subtract. if not of twenty, certain. of ten yrs.

NICHOLAS, Boston, s. of Joseph, by w. Sarah had Susanna, b. 23, bapt. 26 Mar. 1693. RICHARD, Salem 1645. Felt. ROBERT, Boston, mariner, freem. 1666, by w. Martha had Elizabeth b. 15 Apr. 1677. THOMAS, Pemaquid, with two others, nam. Thomas, took o. of fidel. 1674. Perhaps he had been driv. by the Ind. hostil. to Boston, there, by w. Martha, had Jacob, b. 4 Jan. 1678.

COY, MATTHEW, Boston 1653, came, it is said, in 1638, aged 15, m. 29 Aug. 1654, Elizabeth Roberts, had Matthew, b. 5 Sept. 1656; Richard, 6Sept. 1658; John, 2 Sept. 1666; and Samuel, 19 Feb. 1668. MATTHEW, perhaps s. of the preced. had gr. of a lot at Norwich 1685, that pt. now Preston. RICHARD, Salisbury, br. of Matthew, came with him, it is said, in 1638, aged 13, liv. some yrs. at Boston bef. and aft. 1650, when he was at S.; there, by w. Martha, had Caleb, b. 15 Aug. 1666, was of Brookfield 1673, there k. by the Ind. 2 Aug. 1675. Perhaps he and his br. were brot. by sis. Mary, wh. m. John Lake of B. WILLIAM, was one of the first sett. 1637, at Taunton.

COYTEMORE, THOMAS, Charlestown 1636, s. of wid. Catharine C. whose fam. name was Myles, and her sec. h. Rowland C. but by former h. a Gray, she had Parnell, w. of Increase Nowell, and Catharine, w. of Thomas Graves; and by Coytemore, Elizabeth wh. was first w. of William Tyng; all m. in Eng. bef. she came. Mr. Frothingham, 86, gives her ano. d. Sarah, wh. m. a Williams. She made her will 28 Apr. 1658, and d. 28 Nov. 1659. He was of ar. co. 1639, freem. 13 May 1640, selectman and rep. that yr. and once or twice aft. was master of good est. an enterpriz. merch. went in sev. voyages to distant lds. and was lost on a voyage to Malaga by shipwr. 27 Dec. 1645, on the coast of Spain by w. Martha, d. of Capt. Rainsborough, m. doubtless in Eng. had Thomas, b. 25 Feb. 1642, bapt. next day; and William, 6 Feb. 1643 [[vol. 1, p. 468]] d. in six days. His inv. shows £1266, 9, 7. His wid. m. Dec. 1647, Gov. Winthrop, brot. him s. Joshua, wh. d. within two yrs. and m. next, 10 Mar. 1651, John Coggan, bore him Joshua, Caleb, and Sarah; and after his d. in 1658, wish. to be m. again, as relat. by Rev. John Davenport; and, it is said, poison. hers. for ill success. The will of his mo. aids our research for genealogy. Its date is 30 Apr. 1658, and names the four ch. of William Tyng, wh. had m. her eldest d. Elizabeth; five of Increase Nowell; five of Thomas Graves; wh. were all the liv. gr.ch.; besides the ds. Sarah Williams, to wh. she gave ld. at Woburn; Parnell Nowell; and Catharine Graves, as also, Martha, the wid. of Coggran, wh. had bef. been wid. of her s. Thomas, and of Gov. Winthrop.

CRABB, HENRY, Boston, m. 1 Jan. 1658, Hannah, d. of Thomas Emmons, had Samuel, b. 23 Dec. 1659, nam. in the will of his gr.f. E. 20 Jan. 1661. JOHN, Dorchester 1630, came, I presume, in the Mary and John, req. 19 Oct. to be made freem. but prob. went home soon, at least never took the o.; tho. Dr. Harris, wh. finds him in town rec. 1632, says he rem. to Conn. As this could not be bef. 1635, it is liable to doubt. RICHARD, Wethersfield, was rep. 1639, 40, and 1; sold est. 1643, and rem. prob. to Stamford, and in 1655 was of Greenwich. See Hinman, 127.

CRABTREE, JOHN, Boston 1639, a joiner, by w. Alice had John, b. 25 Oct. 1639; and Deliverance, 3 Sept. 1641, d. within two yrs. He d. late in 1656, and his wid. m. 11 Feb. 1657, Joshua Hewes. JOHN, Swanzey 1683, perhaps s. of the preced. m. Mary, 1 Nov. of that yr. had Mary, b. 20 May of that yr. wh. d. in six days, if the Col. Rec. be proof; but she prob. was sec. or third w. for the same Col. Rec. shows he had Benjamin, b. 12 Oct. 1673.

CRACKBONE, GILBERT, Dorchester, freem. 7 Dec. 1636, rem. soon to Cambridge, had, perhaps, the four, whose d. is on rec. Mary, 30 May; Judith, 1 July, both of 1655; Hannah, 24 Sept. 168; and Benjamin, 27 Apr. 1661; yet we kn. not, wh. was mo. of either. But as he m. 17 June 1656, Elizabeth Cooledge, it is clear the first two were by former w.; and of the last nam. we may doubt for two reasons, that in his reg. matchless Mitchell says: "his s. Benjamin was a. 5 or 6 yrs. old, when his f. join. here," tho. he leaves it uncert. how old he was when that was it. still we might infer, that he was contin. in life. Next, we kn. that one Benjamin C. was k. by the Ind. 4 Sept. 1675 at Northfield, under capt. Beers, and prob. was this man's s. He d. 9 Jan. 1672. His will, of 28 Dec. with codic. of 2 Jan. preced. names s. Benjamin, and his ch. Joseph and Sarah. His wid. was Elizabeth

CRACKSTONE, or CRAXTON, JOHN, Plymouth, came in the Mayflower 1620, with s. of the same name, d. bef. end of Mar. foll. JOHN, Plymouth, s. of the preced. had his sh. in div. of ld. as a comer in the [[vol. 1, p. 469]] Mayflower, 1624, and in 1627 in the div. of cattle with the comp. of Allerton; but d. in the foll. yr. from a fever brot. on by freez. his feet, when lost in the woods, as Bradford tells.

CRADDING, WILLIAM, Taunton 1638.

CRAFORD, or CRAFFORD, JOHN, Dover 1671, liv. with w. Elizabeth some yrs. later at Portsmouth. MORDECAI, Salem, in 1663 had w. Judith. MUNGO, Boston 1686, a Scotchm. had been some yrs. here, apprent. or a serv. of John Smith, the mason, and this yr. was allow. to be an inhab. By w. Mary he had Elizabeth b. 19 May 1681, wh. d. young; was, I believe, among the adher. of Andros, imprison. Apr. 1689, but did not go home, and is among the tax. 1695; by sec. w. Susanna had only ch. Mary, wh. m. Stephen Paine; and d. 1712. The inv. of £109, 9, 10, had drugs and medicines for two fifths. His wid. Susanna made her will 27 Aug. 1713, pro. 15 Sept. aft. mak. d. Mary and her h. Stephen excors. giv. all to Mary, exc. £20 to ea. of the gr.ch. An early sett. Mr. Craford, prob. of Watertown, had been drown. [See Winthrop I. 138], and lieut. Feale, and three other gent. of that town, by order of 6 Oct. 1634, were to the inv. of his est. for the Court. STEPHEN, Kittery 1640, d. at Isle of Shoals 1647, leav. w. and one ch.

In his will, made 18 May 1689, pro. 9 Nov. 1690, of wh. Samuel was excor. he names Abigail, wh. had first m. 24 Jan. 1651, John Ruggles, as w. of Edward Adams; Hannah, as w. of Nathaniel Wilson; and gr.ch. Ephraim, s. of John. Apostle Eliot spells his name Crofts; in some other rec. e is used for s final; and often the first five letters made the name. JOHN, Roxbury, eldest s. of the preced. m. 7 June 1654, Rebecca Wheelock, prob. d. of Ralph, had John, b. 5 Aug. 1658, wh. was drown. 5 May 1684, I think, unm.; Rebecca, 28 Aug. 1660; Mary, 16 Oct. 1662; wh. three were bapt. 17 May 1663; and Joseph, 5 May 1666, d. at two mos.

He rem. to [[vol. 1, p. 470]] Deerfield among the early sett. a. 1673, but aft. the destruct. of that town by the Ind. in Philip's war, he was a short time at Roxbury again, and soon rem. to Hatfield, thence to Wethersfield, where he was in 1702. SAMUEL, Roxbury, br. of the preced. freem. 1671, m. 16 Oct. 1661, Elizabeth Seaver, had Hannah, b. 14 Dec. 1662; Samuel, 24 May 1664, d. soon; Elizabeth 2 Oct. 1665; Samuel, again, 16 June 1667; Joseph, 13 July 1669; Mary, 15 Oct. 1671; Abigail, 1 Dec. 1673; Nathaniel, 4 Jan. 1677; and Benjamin, 23 Oct. 1683; and d. 9 Dec. 1709.

SAMUEL, a soldier of Lothrop's comp. k. at Bloody brook, 18 Sept. 1675.

CRAMWELL, JOHN, Boston, d. 1639. Ano. JOHN, Boston, by w. Rebecca had Rebecca, b. 20 July 1654. But this is more prob. Cromwell.

CRANCH, ANDREW, New Hampsh. b. a. 1646, was of gr. jury 1684 and 5.

CRANDALL, EBER, Westerly, s. of the first John, had three ws. as from his will of 22 Aug. 1727 may be presum. for aft. nam. w. Mary, he adds ch. John, Eber, Samuel, and Joseph, "that I had by my sec. w." he gives to Mary, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Ebenezer, and Jeremiah, " that my now w. hath liv." and he also calls Nathaniel Cottrell of N. Kingston br. JAMES, Westerly 1675, or bef. JEREMIAH, Westerly, s. of John of the same, by w. Priscilla had Jeremiah, John, James, Ann, Hannah, Sarah, Experience, Patience, Susanna, and Mary. JOHN, Providence 1637, m. Elizabeth d. of Samuel Gorton; and adopt. his opin. I suppose, for in Aug. 1651, he was imprison. at Boston for a Bapt. freem. at Newport 1655, rem. to Westerly, preach. as 7th day Bapt. and d. 1676. He had two ds. of wh. one m. Job Babcock; the other, Josiah Witter. Other ch. were John, Jeremiah, Peter, Joseph, and Eber. JOHN, Westerly, s. of the preced. had, as we learn from his will of 25 Jan. 1704, w. Elizabeth s.

Benjamin, Jonathan, Joseph, John, Abraham, Jacob, Israel, Elizabeth and Mary. Perhaps he liv. some yrs. late in life at Taunton, for his s. John there took his w. and (wh. is better ground for the infer.) there Samuel Hackett m. 28 Mar. 1690, his d. Mary. BENJAMIN, Milton, perhaps s. of the preced. was a soldier in the comp. of brave capt. Johnson, and wound. in the desperate battle of 19 Dec. 1675 at the Narraganset swamp. CHRISTIAN, Cambridge 1647. But I doubt, that Farmer was delud. into deriv. this name from Christopher Cane, wh. see. HENRY, Dorchester 1658 in Milton 1667-77, m. a d. of Stephen Kingsley. HENRY, Guilford 1664, was, perhaps, f. of that Mercy, wh. m. 30 Oct. 1701, John Hoadley the sec. JASPER, New Haven 1639, had, beside Hannah, wh. m. Thomas Huntington, Deliverance, bapt. 12 June 1642; Mercy, 1 Mar. 1645; Micah, 3 Nov. 1647; and Jasper, b. 1651; rem. to Branford in 1668, thence to Newark N.J. had been rep. of N. H.

JOSEPH, Wethersfield, prob. s. of Benjamin of the same, m. 16 Dec. 1684, Sarah, d. of the first John Kilborne, had Sarah, Hannah, Benjamin, Joseph, Esther, and David. NATHANIEL, Newton, by w.

But one of necessity distrusts the names and dates of all these ch. exc. the first, bec. they so wonderfully concur with those of his br. William's ch. and in his will of 10 Feb. 1669, I find good reason, for he gives to his w. Joan, and to six ch. of his br. William, viz.
