SAMUEL, perhaps of Lynn, perhaps of Ipswich, a youth, serv. to John Baker; as in docum. in the Rec. Commrs. hands of London, copied for me, came from Norwich in May 1637, in the Mary Ann of Yarmouth, aged 15, as he call. hims. tho. his master, embark. a. mo. earlier and design. to take this appr. yet had reason to direct him to have passage in a later ship, made him 14; yet tho. liv. in 1668, whether he had fam. is unkn. to me. SAMUEL, Haverhill, s. of Robert, [[vol. 1, p. 85]] freem. 1683, m. 14 Dec. 1681, Mary Johnson, d. perhaps of Thomas of Andover, had Peter, b. 21 Dec. 1682, d. soon; Mehitable, 5 Feb. 1684; James, 27 Oct. 1686; Obadiah, 9 May 1689.

SAMUEL, Newbury, by w. Abigail had Stephen, b. 23 Mar. 1689; by w. Sarah had Jabez, 27 Dec. 1690; but Coffin seems to intend two h's as well as two ws. in wh. he may be correct, tho. it appears strange, that no other ch. is nam. no date of m. of either ment. nor d. of either h. or w. THOMAS, Haverhill 1646, prob. s. of John the first, m. 1 Apr. 1656, Elizabeth d. prob. of John Hutchins, may have rem. to Newhury, there had John, b. 12 May 1657; Elizabeth 23 Dec. 1659; Mary, 22 Mar. 1661; Love, 15 Apr. 1663; tw. s. 16 Jan. 1665, both d. soon; Thomas, 9 June 1666; and Hannah, 11 July 1671; and was freem. 1666 and d. 15 July 1671. THOMAS, Newbury, by w. Hannah had Abraham, b. 18 June 1688; Sarah, 29 Aug. 1690; and Mehitable, 5 Apr. 1693. WILLIAM, Hartford 1651-9, whose name is often giv. Ayres or Eyres, is, in all other respects, unkn. ZECHARIAH, Andover, m. 27 June 1678, Elizabeth d. of the first Aquila Chase of Newbury.
AYLET, JOHN, Boston, merch. m. 21 Nov. 1654, Mary, d. of Capt. Thomas Hawkins, had Mary, b. 8 Oct. 1655, and he sold, the same yr. to William Hudson that est. wh. had been prop, of his f.-in-law, call. "by the name or sign of Noah's ark." His w. prob. d. early, and he, I think, must have gone home.
AYRAULT, or AYROULD, NICHOLAS, Wethersfield, a physician, driv. by the revocat. of the edict of Nantz to fly his native ld. wh. prob. was Rochelle, a. 1686, or earlier, m. at Providence Marian Breton, had Peter, Nicholas, and other ch. and d. 1706. Of Nicholas jr. and Peter, see acco. in Hinman. SAMUEL, R. I. a physician, by Hinman, Ed. 2, p. 90, presum. to be br. or f. of the preced. but nothing definite as to fam. of these Huguenots is easily accessib. No doubt he came betw. 1685 and 9; but it would not surprise me to have it ascertain. that Hinman's Samuel wa, the same as STEPHEN, Newport 1685, one of the blessed army of French protestant exiles. His s. Daniel m. 9 May 1703, Mary Robineau of New York.
AYRES, EDWARD, Kittery 1685. MARK, and NATHANIEL, N. H. 1689 req. protect. of Mass.
AZELL, HUMPHEY, Kittery 1682,was one of the found. of Bapt. ch. there.
BAALAM, CHARLES, is the name of a passeng. last on the list, coming to Boston from London 1656, aged 18, in the Speedwell, the same voyage on wh. came the earliest Quakers; and tho. it is not charg. against him, that he was of that sect, yet is it almost certain that he soon left this ld.
BABB, JONATHAN, Springfield, took o. of alleg. with Samuel, perhaps his br. 31 Dec. 1678, or the next day, but no more is kn. of either. PHILIP, Kittery 1652, and next yr. was assoc. under commis. from Mass. with Maj. Bryan Pendleton, Nicholas Shapleigh, and others, in the governm. of Isle of Shoals, and a few yrs. later liv. there, in 1666 was empow. to take depons. The name is perpet. in N. H.
BABBAGE, BABBIDGE, sometimes BABRIDGE, CHRISTOPHER, Salem, [[vol. 1, p. 86]] freem. 1665, by w. Agnes had Ruth, b. 20 Mar. bapt. 8 May 1664; and John, 15 Apr. 1666; and his w. d. 17 Nov. 1667. He m. 5 Oct. 1674, wid. Hannah Carlton, perhaps relict of John of Haverhill, had Hannah, 15 July 1675, and Mary, 7 Mar. 1677. Christopher, 11 Nov. 1678; Richard, 1 Oct. 1680, wh. d. in 5 mos. Richard, again, 14 July 1682; and Neheminh, 25 Mar. 168.
BABBIT. See Bobbit.
BABCOCK, DAVID, Dorchester 1640. GEORGE, Boston, wh. d. 2 Sept. 1693, perhaps was he that Gov. Eaton brot. over 1638 to New Haven, conditio. to serve six yrs. call. Badcock. JAMES, Portsmouth, R.I. 1642, Westerly 1661, whither he rem. from Newport, had by first w. (whose name is not heard) James, b. a. 1641; John, 1644; Job; and Mary. By tradit. it is said, that he came from Co. Essex, and on giv. evid. with his two elder s. 1670, call. them 29 and 26 yrs. respectiv. he sw. that he was 58, and spells with d. at the end of his first syllab. From the idle and discord. tradit. that he brot. from Eng. childr. b. from 1612 to 1620 (when the f. would have been betw. 1 and 8 yrs. old), this testim. relieves the geneal. A sec. w. Elizabeth and three ch. by her, one nam. Joseph, the oldest only 9 yrs. old, are provid. for in his nuncup. will, 12 June 1679, the day he d. of wh. s. John and Job were witness. as also to Job were giv. his smith's tools, beside gifts to Mary Champlin, his d. thot. to be w. of William, and to s. Joseph, when he comes to 21 yrs. JAMES, Westerly, eldest s. of the preced. d. 1698, leav. wid. Mary, and eldest s. James, as the rec. of W. it is said, proves; but names of other ch. are not giv. They were Sarah, Jane, Mary, Hannah, Elizabeth William, and Job. Part of the acco. of this James may be easily confus. with that of his br. John. JOB, Westerly, a miller, prob. br. of the preced. d. a. 1718, and in his will calls eldest s. Job, other ch. John, Benjamin, Jane Braman, Sarah Hall, Mary Tanner, Elizabeth Brand, Hannah, and Mary. JOHN, Stonington 1670, s. of the first James, Wh. had prob. own. ld. on both sides of the riv. within disput. bounds of Conn. and R. I. He had. w. Mary, ch. James, Ann, Mary, John, Job, George, Elihu, Robert, Joseph, and Oliver. Fam. tradit. makes his w. to be a Lawton, perhaps sis. of George the first; and it may be nearer the truth, when it tells of his runaway match with the d. of his master, their kind recept. by the Ind. in the wilderness, discov. of his d. and her h. some four yrs. after by the bride's f. and forgiveness, liberality & c. than as it relates his d. 19 July 1719, "aged over one hundred yrs." For ano. John, perhaps his 8. that protraction of days, tho. unlikely, might be correct, yet the f. d. from twenty to forty yrs. too early, and his wid. m. bef. 1700 Erasmus Babbit. Indeed his d. is marked 1685, and his wid. nam. Mary, and eldest 8. James, but these three items concur. with those of his br. James, lead us to apprehend that the geneal. may be confus. between them. JOSEPH, Westerly, s. prob. youngest, of the first James, m. 13 Apr. 1696, Dorothy Key, had Elizabeth b. 29 Jan. 1698; had his w. d. 14 Dec. 1727. by sec. w. Hannah Coats, he had Authority, 2 Feb. 1730; Abigail, 30 Apr. 1731; Joseph, 14 Oct. 1733; and John, 26 Jan. 1736.RETURN, Dartmouth bef. 1686, and liv. to be nam. Nov. 1694 in deed of confirmat. of the town. Strange is the combinat. of errors, in Hinman, 111, [[vol. 1, p. 87]] a. one James B. wh. went to Leyden in Holland 1620, join. the friends of Robinson, and came in the Ann, 1623, to Plymouth, the narrat. enlarg. a. the resid. of the fam. there. Now we kn. that no passeng. of this name came in that ship; and I have very strong reason, after much inquiry, to doubt that any such man liv. in the Col. for its earliest forty yrs. Of this name, in 1834, both forms of spell. inclus. seven had been gr. at Yale, and five at Harv. as Farmer found.
BABER, WILLIAM, Boston 1648, had John.
BABSON, EBENEZER, Gloucester, youngest s. of James, wonderf. bewilder. by diabol. agency, as told by Rev. John Emerson, his spiritu. guide, to C. Mather, and in its appropr. place, Magn. VII. 82-84, may be read. Niles, in his tale, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI. 231, seems more cautious, or less inclin. to honor Satan. JAMES, Gloucester, came, no doubt in comp. with his mo. Isabel (a wid. wh. had lds. there, 1644, and after until her d. G or 8 Apr. 1661, aged 81, or more, as also gr. in 1637 at Salem), m. 16 Nov. 1617, Elinor Hill s. of Zebulon, had James, b. 2 Sept. 1648; Elinor, 15 June 1601; Philip, 15 Oct. 1654; Sarah, 15 Feb. 1657, d. at 20 yrs; Thomas, 21 May 1658; John, 27 Nov. 1660; Richard, 1 June 1663; Elizabeth 8 Oct. 1665; and Ebenezer, 8 Feb. 1668, the bef. ment. playmate with the devil; beside Abigail, 1670. He was freem. 1666, and d. 1683. His s. Thomas serv. long in Philip's war but soon d. prob. unm. JOHN, Gloucester, s. of the preced. m. 1686, Dorcas Elwell, d. of Josiah, and Elizabeth b. 1687; James, 1689; John, 1691; and Josiah, 1703. He and w. d. 1737. PHILIP, Salem, br. of the preced. m. 1689, Hannah Baker, had Ann, and his w. d. 1692.
BACHILER, BACHELOR, BACHELLER, BACHELDER, BATCHELOR, or BATCHELDER, ALEXANDER, Portsmouth 1652, of wh. I kn. no more, but that he was the ferryman. DAVID, Reading, s. of John the first, of the same, is no otherwise kn. to me. HENRY, Ipswich, a brewer, from Dover, Co. Kent, came in 1636, with w. Martha, and four serv. as set forth in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 276, bec. the founder of a num. line, as was thot. in former days from so many spring. at Ipswich; prob. ch. of two brs. of Henry; but any kn. of his childr. is not gain. and we kn. only that he d. 2 Feb. 1679, and his wid. d. 4 Apr. 1686. Yet inv. of his est. was not ret. bef. many yrs. Its date is 15 May 1696. Of his br. John are nam. three ch. John, Josiah, and Hannah; and of his br. Joshua are nam. three, John, Elizabeth and Hannah Warner, w. I presume of John Varner, unless her d. Hannah be meant, if these names are found in order of distrib. of the est. as is most prob. HENRY, Reading. prob. s. of Rev. Stephen, may be he, wh. was persecut. 1660, as a Quaker. JOHN, Dedham, had been of Watertown, freem. 6 May 1635, not, as Bond states, 13 May 1640, that being the day of ano. hav. the same name, was selectman of W. 1636, and at D. had Samuel, b. 8 (Bond says 11) Jan. 1640; Jonathan, and David, b. 14, bapt. 24 Dec. 1643, describ. in the homely phrase of ch. rec. "being the childr. of one burthen to our br. J. B. and his w. our sis." when it would have been agreeable to see her name. He rem. Mr. [[vol. 1, p. 88]] Haven, 13, says, to Hampton. JOHN, Salem 1638, perhaps earlier, had gr. of ld. 1639, was the freem. of 13 May 1640, is by tradit. said to be from Dorsetsh. but more prob. was that tailor from Canterbury, Co. Kent, wh. came in 1636, perhaps br. of Henry, bef. ment. by w. Mary had at S. John, bapt. Jan. 1639, d. at 7 yrs.; Mary, Sept. 1640; Abigail, 12 Feb. 1643; Hannah, 23 June 1644, d. soon; Hannah, again, 25 May 1645; John, again, 23 June 1650; and Joseph, 8 May 1653; and d. 13 Nov. 1675, his w. Elizabeth hav. a. three days bef. unless some confus. of name exist in the report. In his will of 1673, w. Elizabeth s. John, and Joseph, d. Hannah Corning, and gr. ch. John Cressy are ment. JOHN, Reading, freem. 1666, had Jonathan, wh. d. 4 Dec. 1653; David; and John, but the order of b. is not seen, beside Samuel, wh. d. 20 Mar. 1662, the mo. Rebecca hav. d. sixteen days bef. and he d. May 1676. Of ano. JOHN, freem. 1670, it is not kn. where he liv. but it may well seem, that he was s. of the preced. bec. he d. at Reading, 1705. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the first John, m. 14 Aug. 1673, Mary Herrick, perhaps d. of Zechary, had John b. 26 Apr. 1675; and Jonathan, 29 Mar. 1678; beside Josiah, 6 Mar. 1680; and he d. 6 Aug. 1684, and the wid. d. within two wks. aft. Ano. JOHN, at Salem 1692, was one of the jurors in the sad witchcraft trials, and recant. magnanimous. from their damnable verdicts. John p.,late Presid. of the Berksh. Med. Inst. and other descend. of this stock give,uniform. spell. of their name Batchelder. JOSEPH, Salem, a tailor, perhaps, elder br. of John the first, came, 1636, from Canterbury, Co. Kent, with w. Elizabeth one ch. and three serv. acc. the certif. of the Mayor of Sandwich, where they, emb. was freem. Mar. 1638; rem. to Wenham, of wh. he was rep. 1644. What was the name of the ch. he brot. or whether he had more on our side of the water, or w hen he d. are unkn. JOSEPH, Charlestown, s. of William, m. 22 Dec. 160, Agnes, wid. of William Gillingham. JOSEPH, Salem, youngest s. of the first John of the same, m. 8 Oct. 1677, Miriam Moulton, had Joseph, b. 18 July foll. JOSHUA, Ipswich, br. of Henry, of the same, came from Kent, but no more can be heard of him, exc. that he had at least three ch. John, Elizabeth and Hannah Warner, w. of Daniel of the same, entit. to sh. in the est. of his br. Henry. MARK, Wenham, freem. 1663, may have been s. of the preced. or not, was a soldier in the comp. of Gardner, and in the great battle of 19 Dec. 1675 was k. with his capt. NATHANIEL, Hampton, eldest s. of the Rev. Stephen, b. a. 1611, m. 1656 Deborah, d. of John Smith, and had, it is said, seventeen childr. (only nine by her), many of whose names it might be not easy to find, but one was Nathaniel. At Woburn he took sec. w. 31 Oct. 1676, Mary Wyman, wid. of John, and d. of Rev. Thomas Carter, had eight ch. and from Coffin's gatherings in Geneal. Reg. VI. 207 we learn that he had third w. Elizabeth She was wid. of John Knill of Charlestown, m. 23 Oct. 1689. STEPHEN, Lynn, the first min. there, b. a. 1561, came to Boston in the William and Francis, 5 June 1632, from London, preach. at L. next yr. was freem. 6 May 1635, and next yr. was at Ipswich, perhaps at Yarmouth 1637, but in 1638 went to Newbury, in 1639 to Hampton, whence in 1641 he was dism. and some time after may be heard of at Saco. Willis, I. 37. Finally in 1653 or 4 he went home, leav. third w. Mary here, wh. pray. for div. in 1656, bec. he was [[vol. 1, p. 89]] gone to Eng. and had tak. new w. Her suit may hardly have prosper. for, in his Hist. of Lynn, Lewis copies from York rec. sentence against her, in 1651, for adultery, and that she and her paramour were whip. for it. Prob. he had good reason for leav. her, and in few yrs. after, he d. 1660, at Hackney, near London. Some acco. tho. imperf. we have of four s. and three ds. One had m. in Eng. John Sanborn, wh. was d. bef. the fam. cross. the ocean; ano. call. Theodata, had, in Eng. prob. m. Christopher Hussey, after of Lynn, rem. to Hampton, and she d. 1649; and Deborah m. John Wing, of L. wh. rem. to Sandwich. Names of s. were Henry, Nathaniel, bef. ment. Francis, and Stephen, wh. both were of London. and the last is said to have been liv. 1685, but the dates of b. are all unkn. Descend. are very num. See Winth I. and II. in many places; Prince's Ann. sub. 1632; and Lewis, most copiously, Ed. 2d pp. 78, and 92-97. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1634, freem. 1644, by w. Jane had Seaborn, bapt. 11 Jan. 1635, prob. d. young; Abigail, 2 July 1637; and by w. Rachel had Joseph. b. 20 Aug. 1644; and he d. says the gr. st. 20 Feb. 1670, aged a. 72. His will made nine days bef. gives us knowl. of other ch. beside Joseph and Abigail wh. are nam. in it. She had m. 11 Nov. 1659, Richard Austin. The w. Rachel was made Extrix, and provis. in the will follows for her d. of the same name, w. of Philip Atwood, and I judge; for Susanna, his gr.ch. d. of Susanna his d. wh. had m. 2 Nov. 1664, John Lawrence, and was d. and for sev. other gr.ch. named Cromwell, of whose f. or mo. I have inq. assidu. but in vain. Correct spell. of various fam. with name of so nearly sim. sound, must be unattain. and after trying, differ. heads, I felt compel. to use only one. Under its many shapes, in 1829, Farmer found eleven had been gr. at N. E. coll.
BACKUS, FRANCIS, Saco, one of the selectmen 1688. STEPHEN, Norwich 1660, s. of William, by w. Sarah, d. of Lyon Gardiner, had Sarah, b. Apr. 1668; Stephen, Oct. 1670; Mary, Nov. 1672; Ruth, 19 Dec. 1674; Lydia, Nov. 1677; and Timothy, 7 Oct. 1682. WILLIAM, Saybrook 1638, had there William and Stephen, rem. to Norwich a. 1660, was freem. 1663, and d. June 1664, leav. sec. w. Ann, wh. d. May 1670. His first w. was Sarah, d. of John Charles. WILLIAM, Norwich, s. of the preced. m. Elizabeth (prob. the eldest d. of William Pratt of Saybrook), wh. d. 1730, aged 87, had William, b. 1660; John, 1661; perhaps Sarah, 1663; Samuel, 1665; Joseph, 6 Sept. 1667; and Nathaniel, 1669; and d. a. 1720. Of this name twelve had, in 1828, been gr. at Yale and Dart. Coll. Rev. Isaac, disting. min. of Middleborough, d. 1806, aged 82.

(wh. d. the foll. yr.) relative to the ancestry of this Nathaniel, at wh. was present a party advers. interest. might, without violence, be constr. to refer equally to the Barnstable fam. tho. it is less prob. NATHANIEL, Barnstable, s. of the first Nathaniel, m. 27 Mar. 1673, Sarah, d. of Gov. Hinckley, had Nathaniel, b. 9 Sept. 1674 ; Mary, 9 Oct. 1677; Elizabeth 11 Apr. 1680; and Samuel, 20 Jan. 1682.

Becon by Richard Mather, when he relates the loss of his right hand in the gr. Aug. storm, for wh. see Young's Chron. of Mass. 475. Certain. no more is kn. of him.

Nov. 1653, leav. wid. Rebecca, d. it is said, of Thomas Potter of Coventry, wh. had been mayor of that borough. His will ment. w. and s. also Ann Potter. They had liv. in Dublin, and, on the outbreak of the Irish rebellion, she was sent over here, says tradit. and her h. foll. soon; but her br. Humphrey P. and other relat. perish. in the massacre. Her will of 23 Mar. 1655, pro. 29 Nov. foll. names cous. i. e. niece, Ann Potter, and John Bacon, beside sis. Judith in O. E. Some community of origin may be, perhaps, traced to this tradit. and to that of Michael; yet the flight from the rebellion would seem more natural in that early day to be direct. to Eng. Felt says, William was freem. after 1643; but the evidence is not seen. In 1834 Farmer found the gr. of this name to be seven at Yale, four at Harv. and four at other N. E. coll. the earliest of wh. Jacob, H. C. 1731, min. of Plymouth, was gr.gr.s. of the first Michael.
