ADAMS, ABRAHAM, Boston, cooper, perhaps s. of Nathaniel of Weymouth, had liv. at Falmouth, where bef. 1667 he m. Sarah, d. of Arthur Macworth, and from his wid. had gift of an isl. in Casco Bay. Willis, I. 75. Later in life he was an innholder, and one of that band of volunteers wh. took, Oct. 1689, a piratic. vessel, in the Vineyard Sound, after some resist. and brot. her into B. His w. was Abigail, d. of Nicholas Wilmot, wh. in his will of 27 Sept. 1684, provides for her sh. of his est. From the will of Adams, made 6, pro. 18 Apr. 1700, we learn, that he had by a former w. i. e. Macworth's d. two ds. Sarah Grant and Jane Snelling, and by w. Abigail, made extrix. had Zechariah, Samuel, Abraham, Mary, Abigail, and Elizabeth ABRAHAM, Newbury, eldest s. of Robert, m. 16 Nov. 1670, Mary, d. of Richard Pettingell of the same, had Mary, b. 16 Jan. 1672; Robert, 12 May 1674; Abraham, 6 May 1676; Isaac, 26 Feb. 1679; Sarah, 13 Apr. 1681; John, 7 Mar. 1684; Matthew, 25 May 1686; Israel, 25 Dec. 1688; Dorothy, 25 Oct. 1691; and Richard, 22 Nov. 1693. His w. d. 19 Sept. 1705; and he d. 12 Dec. 1714. ALEXANDER, Boston, a shipwright, freem. 16 18, ar. co. 1652, m. as is said, Mary Coffin, sis. of Tristram the first, had Mary, b. 19, bapt. 25 Jan. 1646; rem. to Dorchester, there had Susanna, 14 May 1648; John, 26 Feb. 1653; and Samuel, 7 May 1656; beside Elizabeth wh m. William Parkman. ANDREW, Hartford 1643, then employ. as Hinman, 12, tells, in place of sch.master. CHARLES, Dover 1648, liv. in 1669 in that part, call. Oyster riv. was of the gr. jury 1688; had w. Temperance, s. Charles, and perhaps John; and was k. by the Ind. 1694. Evidence is rec. 1712, to prove, that he possess. lds. there "above sixty yrs." CHARLES, Dover, s. of the preced. had Charles, b. 1668; Sarah, 1671. CHRISTOPHER, Braintree, a petition. with many others, in 1645, for a planta. on the land of Pumham. He rem. E. and had fine est. at Kittery, where in his will in Suffk, Reg. X. 105 of 13 June 1686, pro. 21 Sept. 1687, more than eight mos. after his d. by Gov. Andros, he names w. Margaret, and four ch. John, [[vol. 1, p. 9]] Mark, Ann, and Mary, beside cous. Isaac Goodwright, to wh. are giv. two cows. DANIEL, Simsbury, 1683, m. prob. in 1687, Mary, d. of Samuel Pinney of the same, had Mary, bapt. 16 Jan. 1698; Thankful, 10 Apr. foll. and other ch. perhaps bef. and after, certain. Ephraim, 25 May 1701; beside Daniel, Samuel, Benjamin, Joseph, and Thomas; and d. 1713, aged 61. EDWARD, New Haven 1640, Milford 1646, and Fairfield 1650, by his will of 7 Aug. 1671, gave est. to w. Margaret, ch. Samuel; Abraham; Mary Merwin, wh. was b. a. 1647; Nathaniel; John; and Nathan. John and Nathaniel d. without issue. EDWARD, Windsor, m. 25 May 1660, Elizabeth Buckland, d. perhaps, of Thomas, had, says Stiles, Edward, wh. d. bef. his f. and Mary, 6 Aug. 1671, wh. m. John Matson, as Porter tells me. EDWARD, Medfield, s. of Henry the first. b. in Eng. freem. 1654, by w. Lydia had Lydia, b. 12 July 1653; Jonathan, 4 Apr. 1655; John, 18 Feb. 1657; Eliashib, 18 Feb. 1659; Sarah, 23 May 1660; James, Jan. 1662; Henry, 29 Oct. 1663; Mehitable, 20 Mar. 1665; Elisha, 25 Aug. 1666 d. next mo.; Edward, 28 June 1668; Bethia, 12 Apr. 1671, d. in few ds.; Bethia, again, 18 Aug. 1672, d. in few ds.; Abigail, 25 Jan. 1675; and Miriam 26 Feb. 1676; both d. soon. He was much employ. in public duties, ens. selectman for many yrs. rep. in the two first Gen. Cts. 1689, after overthrow of Andros, and d. 12 Nov. 1716. His w. had d. 3 Mar. 1676; but he had sec. w. whose name is not seen. His will of 19 May 1715, pro. 3 Dec. 1716, in our reg. XIX. 225, taking notice that his w. was provid. for bef. their m. and that his s. Jonathan, and John were, formerly, supplied by him with lds. and Edward with movab. and money, directs now, that his prop. be div. in nine equal parts, whereof the childr. of his s. Eliashib dec. to have two, James, and Henry, ea. two, and his d3. Lydia Daniel, Sarah Turner, and Mehitable Faxon, ea. one. EDWARD, Windsor, m. 25 May 1660, Elizabeth d. of Thomas Buckland, and d. 15 Aug,. 1683, leav. only ch. Mary, b. 28 Aug. 1671. ELEAZER, Medfield, eldest s. of the first Henry of the name, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 1672; and Eleazer, 1673. ELIASHIB, Bristol, s. of Edward of Medfield, was Unm. Feb. 1689. FERDINANDO, Dedham, 1637, a shoemaker from London, freem. 13 May 1640, by w. Ann had Abigail, b. 15 Sept. 1638; Bethia, 10 June 1640; and Nathaniel, 16 Mar. 1643. In Aug. 1641 he had leave to go home on business; but if he went, he came back next yr. Worthington, 103. Again he went home, and, in Oct. 1651, by his atty. sold est. at D. GEORGE, Branford, m. 5 Sept. 1657, Mary wid. of Lesley Bradfield, I presume, as sec. w. and d. prob. 1675. His will of 1670 names w. and s. John only, but this s. was by former w. it may be suppos. for he made his will 10 Oct. 1677, and d. that yr. giv. his prop. to Noah Rogers and others, hav. no near relat. GEORGE, Watertown, by w. Frances had John, b. 6 Aug. 1645; George, 1647; Daniel; Joseph, 6 Mar. 1657; and Mary; rem. to Cambridge farms, now Lexington, and d. 10 Oct. 1696. GEORGE, Cambridge, that part now Lexington, s. of the preced. m. 20 Jan. 1684, Martha, d. of John Fiske of Watertown, had George, b. 28 Apr. 1685; Martha, 10 Jan. 1687; John, 2 Sept. 1688; of wh. three the Watertown ch. rec. at [[vol. 1, p. 10]] various times, show the bapt. Nathaniel; Sarah; both bapt. 12 June 1698 at W.; Benjamin, b. 20 Dec. 1701; and Bond thinks there may have, also, been Abigail, and Ann. HENRY, Braintree, came early to our country, and tradit. says from Braintree, in Co. Essex in 1632, but widely diverse is the origin by ano. tradit. had gr. in Feb. 1641, of 40 acres by vote of Boston, of wh. Braintree was part, i. e. the portion for ten heads. Perhaps he was the first clk. of the town, after separat. from Boston, tho. more likely is it that his s. of the same name had the honor; and he d. or was bur. 8 Oct. 1646, leav. by tradit. eight s. yet only five are nam. in his will, 1646, pro. 8 June 1647, where appear Peter, John, Joseph, Edward, Samuel, and d. Ursula. Of this d. as tradit. took no notice, it may be that the number eight applied to s. means in truth ch. seven s. and one d. but names eno. for the s. may be seen, and certainly one s good, if not two beyond the deviees in the will, as Henry, Thomas, Jonathan, in some reports call. William. The inscript. on the monu. erect. by his descend, John Adams, sec. Presid. of the U. S. exhibits the popular story with characterist. strength: ╥In mem. of Henry Adams wh. took his flight from the Dragon persecution, in Devonsh. Eng. and alighted with eight s, near Mt. Wollaston. One of the s. ret. to Eng. and, after tak. some time to explore the country, four rem. to Medfield, and the neighb. towns, two to Chelmsford. One only, Joseph, wh. lies here at his left hand, remain, here; wh. was an orig, prop. in the townsh. of Braintree incorpo. 1639." HENRY, Braintree, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. a. 1604 as is thot, may, rather than his f. be regard. as the town clk. of 1640, m. 17 Nov. 1643, Elizabeth d. of Moses Paine, had Eleazer, b. 5 Aug. 1644; Jasper, 23 June 1647; rem. to that part of Dedham, wh. bec. Medfield, of wh. also he was first town clk. there had Elizabeth 11 Nov. 1649; John, and Henry, tw. 14 July 1652; Moses, 26 Oct. 1654; Henry, again, 19 Nov. 1657; and Samuel, 10 Dec. 1661, wh. d. young. He was of ar. co. 1652, rep. 1659, 65, 74 and 5, the lieut. k. by the Ind. 21 Feb. 1676, at his own door, as ment. by Increase Mather in hist. of Philip's war. His w. was mort. wound. the same night, at the ho. of Rev. Mr. Wilson, tho. she liv. a week. Henry, Boston, m. 10 May 1660, Mary, d. of William Pitty of Weymouth. Henry, Medfield, prob. s. of Edward of the same, m. 10 Dec. 1691, Patience Ellis, d. of Thomas. *JACOB, Newbury, s. of Robert of the same, m. 7 Apr. 1677, Ann Allen, or Ellen, and Dorothy, b. 26 June 1679; Rebecca, 26 Aug. 1680; rem. to Suffield m. there had sev. ch. in his will, beside the two, b. at N. nam. Jacob; Daniel; Abraham, 10 Nov. 1687; John; Ann; Elizabeth 16 Aug. 1692; and Sarah. Some of them, however, had perhaps been b. in a neighb. town. He was rep. for S. 1711, 14, and 17, in Nov. of wh. last he d. at the Ct. in Boston.

JAMES, Plymouth, s. of John of the same, wh. was of the first comers, went, 1643, to Marshfield, soon after to Scituate, there m. 16 July 1646, Frances, d. of William Vassall, had William, b. 16 May 1647; Ann, 18 Apr. 1649; Richard, 19 Apr. 1651, d. soon; Mary, 27 Jan. 1653; and Margaret, 1654; all bapt. at the sec. ch. of S. Deane says, beside Martha, wh. m. 1678, Benjamin Pierce. On board the James of Plymouth one James, not prob. this man, d. 19 Jan. 1603, of wh. Kenelm Winslow was made admr. JAMES, Concord, 1672. JEREMY, Braintree, perhaps 1632, rem. soon to Cambridge, then call. Newtown, freem. 6 May 1635, rem. next yr. to Hartford, had three ws. of wh. the first is unkn. by name, by her he had Samuel, b. it is said 1643, bapt. certain. 23 Nov. 1645; and perhaps more. His sec. w. Rebecca, wid. of Samuel Greenhill, d. 1678, and by her he had other ch. prob. Ann, wh. m. Robert Sanford; Elinor, wh. m. Nathaniel Willet; and John, unless one or two were by former w. Rebecca, wid. of the sec Andrew Warner, and d. of John Fletcher, was his third w. He long kept the ordinary, and d. 11 Aug. 1683, in his will, made seven days bef. he div. his est. half to childr. of s. John, and half to those of d. Willet. His wid. was 77 yrs. old at her d. 25 June 1715, and, no doubt, had provis. from the est. JOHN, Plymouth, one of the first comers, arr. in the Fortune, 9 Nov. 1621, m. Ellen or Elinor Newton, as the sagacity of Judge Davis presum. for she came in the Ann, 1623, and was prob. the only fem. N. of Chesapeak Bay with such bapt. name. He d. 1633, leav. w. and ch. James, John, and Susanna; and the rec. 24 Oct. of that yr. shows decent est. for that day. The wid. m. June foll. Kenelm Winslow. JOHN, Cambridge, brot. from Eng. w. Ann, and d. Rebecca, bapt. bef. says Mitchell's Reg. when he adds five of the other ch. bapt. in his ch. in right of the mo. for the f. did not join bef. 13 May 1666, viz. Mary, b. 25 Oct. 1652; John, 1 May 1655; and Joseph; but the "matchless" registrar does not ment. the day or days of bapt. tho. our thanks are hearty for his care to name Hannah, b. 8 Aug. 1657, bapt. 17 June 1660; and Daniel, 14 Sept. 1652. But Hannah d. early in 1661, 25 Jan. acc. Mitchell, 25 Feb. by Harris Epit. 169; and Daniel, d. 14 May 1685. Ano. Daniel had preced. him, but liv. not, I presume, long eno. to be bapt. He was a millwright, and Dr. Bond conject. that he was s. of George of Watertown, and when that was seen to be impossib. he suppos. he was br. So numberless are the shoots of this name, that I dare not foll. even so judicious a leader in this expedit. That he was s. of Henry the first, as amiable credulity would assume, is highly improb. since he came twenty yrs. or little less after that great N. E. progenitor, and so long outliv. him dying betw. June and Oct. 1706, and his w. still liv. Rebecca m. 24 Nov. 1669, Nathaniel Patten, and d. 18 Dec. 1677; Mary m. John Eames of Watertown, and d. 1681.

[[vol. 1, p. 12]] Inconsistencies appear in the fam. geneal. as to b. of her and her br. John. JOHN, Chelmsford 1654, had been of Concord 1630, has been sometimes thot. s. of the first Henry; but the conject. is uncert. JOHN, Marshfield, s. perhaps, of John of Plymouth, m. 27 Dec. 1654, Jane James, and had Joseph, Martha, and perhaps other ch. JOHN, Hartford, s. prob. eldest, of Jeremy of the same, had Rebecca, b. Aug. 1658; Abigail, Feb. 1660; Sarah, Mar. 1662; Jeremy, Aug. 1664; John, Sept. 1666; Jonathan, 6 Nov. 1668; and d. 1670, leav. wid. in expecta. of ano. ch. Of the s. Jeremy went to Huntington; and John to Great Egg harb. both on L. I. JOHN, Dover, 1662, was, perhaps, s. of Charles the first of the same. JOHN, Branford, s. of George of the same, by first w. d. 1677. JOHN, Windsor, m. 6 Dec. 1677, Abigail, d. of Humphrey Pinney, had Mary; Abigail, b. 8 July 1681; and John, 15 Mar. 1683; all nam. in the will of their gr.mo. Pinney, wh. d. 18 Aug. 1684, as if the mo. were d. He was, prob. br. of Daniel, and rem. to Simsbury. JOHN, Salem, by w. Sarah had Elizabeth b. 20 Oct. 1682; Sarah, 13 Oct. 1684; Mary, 15 Feb. 1688; John, 16 Mar. 1690; Margaret, 11 Feb. 1693, d. next yr.; and Margaret, again, 8 Mar. 1696. JOHN, Sudbury, m. Hannah, d. of John Bent the sec. had John, b. 12 Mar. 1684; Daniel, 1685; and Hannah, 1688. John, Medfield, s. of Henry the sec. had Samuel, b. 1684; Mary, 1687; Patience, 1690 ; Ruth, 1691; Josiah, 1693; John, 1695; Isaac, 1697; Richard, 1699; Joshua, 1701; Abigail, 1702; Bethia, 1705; and Michael, 1707. JOHN, Medfield, s. of Edward of the same, by first w. Deborah had Edward, b. 1682; John, 1684; Daniel, 1686; Eleazer, 1687; beside Obadiah, and Jonathan, whose dates are not giv. and by sec. w. Susanna had Thomas, 1695; Susanna, 1697; Jeremiah, 1699; Abraham, 1701; Bethia, 1702; Phineas, 1705; Hannah, 1707; and Esther. JOHN, Boston, merch. third s. of Joseph the first, by w. Hannah, d. of Christopher Webb, had Hannah, b. 24 Jan. 1685; John, 27 Sept. 1687; both at Braintree; Samuel, 6 May 1689 (wh. by w. Mary was f. of Samuel, b. 16 Sept. 1722, H. C. 1740, one of the chief promoters of the Amer. Revo. 1765, and Gov. of Mass. wh. d. 2 Oct. 1802); and by sec. w. Hannah, d. of Anthony Checkley, Esq. m. 19 Oct. 1694, had Joseph, and Mary, tw. 20 Dec. 1695; Thomas, 29 Mar. 1701; and Abijah, 11 May 1702. He d. bef. 20 Jan. 1712. JONATHAN, Medfield, call. sen. when his inv. of 15 Feb. 1692, was produc. at Prob. Ct. had been thot. s. of the first Henry, tho. no other circumstance is to be discern. in support of such assumpt. than that Edward of M. wh. was a s. of Henry gave to his eldest s. this name of Jonathan. Scrutiny has been applied, and Vinton, 296, could find two ws. Elizabeth and Mary, but ment. no ch. JONATHAN, Boston, blockmaker, of wh. I learn from his will, made 1 Apr. 1707, pro. 8 May next, that his w. was Rebecca, and that [[vol. 1, p. 13]] he had Samuel, eldest s. beside Jonathan, Nathaniel, and James, and four ds. Rebecca, Dorcas, Mary, and Lydia. His w. was d. of James Andrews of Falmouth, driv. up by the war. JONATHAN, Medfield, eldest s. of Edward of the same, m. 20 Mar. 1678, Mary Ellis, d. prob. of Thomas of the same; but my acquisit. reach no further. JOSEPH, Braintree, perhaps youngest s. of the first Henry, b. in Eng. a. 1626, was a maltster, freem. 1653 or 5, his name appearing on both years, as the wonderful carelessness of Secr. Rawson admits thirty, if not thirty-one (if we include Dwight), out of thirty-two of the earlier yr. to be reinsert. two yrs. later with the sole addit. of one name at the top and one at the foot of the list, m. 26 or 29 Nov. 1650, Abigail (not Mary, as Alden has it), d. of Gregory Baxter (not, as is giv. by Thayer, of John, wh. was her br.), had Hannah, b. 13 Nov. 1652; Joseph, 24 Dec. 1654; John, 13 Jan. 1657, or 11 Feb. it being, uncert. wh. date is prefer. on the rec. (but as he d. in few ds. the earlier may denote b. and the latter, d.) Abigail, 27 Feb. 1659; John, and Bethia, tw. 3 Dec. 1661; Mary, 9 Oct. 1663, d. soon; Samuel, 6 Sept. 1665; Mary, again, 25 Feb. 1668; Peter, 7 Feb. 1670; Jonathan, 31 Jan. 1672; and Mehitable, bapt. 24 Nov. 1678, not as sometimes read 23 Nov. wh. was Saturday. His u. d. 27 Aug. 1692; and he d. 6 Dec. 1694. Thayer's Fam. Memo. in eleven pages furnish. large enumera. of descend. His eldest d. m. 10 Apr. 1672, Samuel Savil; Abigail m. John Bass jun.; Bethia m. 1680, John Webb; Mary m. 16 Dec. 1686, Samuel Webb; and Mehitable m. 21 July 1697, Thomas White. His will, of 18 July 1694, gives no ment. of s. Samuel or Jonathan, but provides for the others and the five ds. using the name of hs. for all but the last. JOSEPH, Braintree, eldest s. of the preced. m. 20 Feb. 1682, Mary Chapin, perhaps d. of Josiah, had Mary, b. 6 Feb. foll. and Abigail, 17 Feb. 1684. This w. d. 14 June 1687, and he next m. Hannah, d. of John Bass, by wh. he had Joseph, 1 Jan. 1690, H. C. 1710, min. of Newington from 16 Nov. 1715 to his d. 26 May 1783; John, 8 Feb. 1692, the deac. nh. d. 25 May 1761, and was (by Susanna, d. of Peter Boylston) f. of John, sec. Presid. of the U. S. b. 19 Oct. 1735, wh. d. 4 July 1826, and was f. of John Quincy, sixth Presid. of the U. S.; Samuel, 28 Jan. 1694; Josiah, 8 Feb. 1696; Hannah, 21 Feb. 1698; Ruth, 21 Mar. 1700; Bethia, 13 June, 1702; and Ebenezer, 30 Dec. 1704. This w. d. 24 Oct. 1705, and he d. at the mature age of 81, on 12 Feb. 1736; and his wid. Elizabeth (by wh. he had Caleb, 26 May 1710, that d. in few days ;) d. 14 Feb. 1739, aged 71. JOSEPH, Cambridge, s. of John of the same, m. 21 Feb. 1688, Margaret, d. of Thomas James, of Sudbury, had Joseph, b. 1689, wh. liv. to the age of 85; Daniel, 1690; Cherry, if such be a possib. name in that day, bapt. 31 Jan. 1697; John, 18 Apr. 1637; and Abigail.

[[vol. 1, p. 14]]

MOSES, Sherborn, s. of Henry the sec. m. 15 Apr. 1681, Lydia d. of Jonathan Whitney of the same, had Benoni, b. 3 Nov. foll., Lydia, 2 Feb. 1684; Elizabeth 18 Sept. 1686, d. young; Hannah, 8 Feb. 1688; Elizabeth again, 25 Oct. 1689; Moses, 26 Nov. 1691; James, 7 July 1693; Isaac, 4 Mar. 1695; and Abigail, 7 Sept. 1697; was selectman 1701, and d. 1724. NATANIEL, Newport 1639, may be that one of Weymouth 1642, wh. had Abraham, b. 16 Jan. 1643. NATHANIEL, Boston, turner, m. 24 Nov. 1652, Elizabeth d. of Philemon Portmort, but whether she d. soon, and he had ano. w. Sarah is wholly uncert. for one Nathaniel of B. d. Oct. 1675, and his w. Sarah d. May 1685. Ano. NATHANIEL, Boston, blockmaker, if the modern copy of supposed rec. contempo. may be confided in, as in about nine tenths of its contents it may be, by w. Mary alone had Nathaniel, b. 10 Sept. 1653; Mary, 20 May 1655; Sarah, 9 Aug. 1657; David, 30 June 1659; Joseph, 19 June 1661; Elizabeth 21 Mar. 1662, d. soon; Benjamin, 10 Dec. 1660; Elizabeth again, 2 Oct. 1667; Benjamin, again, 27 May 1671; Isaac, 7 Nov. 1673, and Mary, again, 23 Sept. 1677. No small part of this may have confirmat. in his will of 22 Mar. 1690, pro. 8 May next, in wh. his w. Mary, and s. Joseph and Isaac are well provid. for, as also d. Mary, wid. of Joseph Hipdich; Sarah, w. of Richard Hunnewell, and Elizabeth w. of Ebenezer Chaffin, but all subject to the discret. of their mo. and he takes notice that his s. Nathaniel had not only rec. his share of prop. and more, but owed him or money lent, and refus. to acknowl. the debt, so that out of his fatherly regard he can give him but one shil. See rec. in Vol. XL 136. He d. 30 Mar. Perhaps his eldest s. NATHANIEL was a soldier in Philip's war; of Turner's comp. tho. rather is it more prob. that he liv. at Charleston, m. Hannah, d. of Nicholas Wilmot, wh. remembers her in his will of 27 Sept. 1684. He had Nathaniel, b. 12 Jan. 1681; Daniel, or David, 19 Nov. 1682; Nicholas, 8 Oct. 1684, d. soon; Hannah, 3 Oct. 1686, bapt.6 Mar. 1687; Ann, 15, bapt. 19 Aug. 1688, d. next mo.; Ann, again, bapt. 2 Aug. 1691, d. under 16 yrs.; Wilmot, 21 Aug. 1692; Mar, 29 Aug. 1702, d. under 13 yrs.; Abigail, b. 17, bapt. 21 Apr. 1706, d. under 2 yrs.; Ann, again, 31 Mar. 1708, d. soon; and Ann, again, 2, bapt. 15 Jan. 1710. Of ano. NATHANIEL of Charlestown, blacksmith, possib. but not prob. s. of Samuel the first, who m. Ann d. of Nathaniel Coolidge of Watertown, I see so little reason to believe his claim to adm. on my page with his ch. that he must be left in his position with Bond 747.
