DADE, DAVY, DADY, or DAWDY, and even DANDY, NATHANIEL, Charlestown, s. of William, m. 17 June 1663, Hannah, d. of Richard Miller, had no ch. but Hannah, b. 4 Apr. 1664, d. very soon; and Nathaniel, bapt. 23 July 1665, d. next yr. and he d. some time a. the b. of his s. His wid. m. 4 Oct. 1667, John Edmonds, and third h. 22 May 1684, deac. Aaron Ludkin, and d. 13 Dec. 1707. WILLIAM Charlestown 1630, a butcher, came in the fleet with Winthrop prob. for his name stands on the list of Boston ch. next after John Winthrop jr. wh. came, however, in 1631; and he was of the 35 earliest mem. of the ch. of Charlestown, freem. 1 Apr. 1633; by w. Dorothy had Benjamin, bapt. 24 Mar. 1635; Nathaniel, 22 Jan. 1637; and Zechary, b. 16 May 1644; d. Apr. 1682, aged 77, leav. est. to w. Dorothy, a William, and d. Abigail. Frothingham, 79.

Perhaps he had been driv. away from some frontier settlem. in the Ind. war, and went back. Yet in the great fire of Mar. 1760, one of the [[vol. 2, p. 2]] sufferers, as we see in Drake's valua. Hist. of Boston, p. 652, was Isaac D. perhaps gr.s. of John.
DAGAN, RICHARD, Scituate 1690, had Elizabeth b. 1693; and Thomas, 1694. Deane tells little more.
DAGGETT, or DOGGETT, as on rec. at Watertown, but DOGHEAD, or DOGED, at Plymouth, *JOHN, Watertown 1630, prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop for 19 Oct. he desired adm. and 18 May 1631 was made freem.; rem. perhaps with Mayhew to the Vineyard, and 1645 to Rehoboth, was rep. 1648. He m. at Plymouth, 29 Aug. 1667, prob. as sec. w. wid. Bathsheba Pratt, then call. hims. of Martin's Vineyard. JOHN, Marshfield, perhaps s. perhaps gr.s. of the preced. m. 3 Sept. 1691, Mehitable Truant; but this may have been sec. w. and his first, Persis, d. of William Sprague of Hingham, wh. d. 1684.

DAKIN, DAKYNGS, or DAKING, JOHN, Concord, perhaps s. of Thomas, by w. Susan had John, b. 20 Mar. 1661, unless there be in the rec. mistake of name. THOMAS, Concord, had Joseph, John, Samuel, and Sarah, this last b. 8 Oct. 1659; perhaps all were by w. Sarah, wh. d. ten days after the last b. He m. 11 June 1660, wid.

DALISSON, or DALISON, GILBERT, Milford a. 1647, as Lambert presumes, but at Boston, we learn by rec. m. 24 Oct. 1661, wid. Margaret Story; perhaps later in life he had w. Mary, and good est. but no ch. d. 1689; gave his prop. after dec. of w. to John Barton of Salem, and he to pay £10 to Thomas Marshall, yet no relat. is kn. with either of them.
DALKIN, -----, Medford, the escape of whose w. from drown. is told by Winthrop II. 162.
DALTON, or DOLTON, PHILEMON, Watertown, linen-weaver, came in the Increase, 1635, aged 45; with w. Hannah, .35; and Samuel, 5 and 1/2; rem. to Dedham, prob. in 1637, thence to Hampton 1640, and perhaps to Ipswich, at least there he d. 4 June 1662 by injury from fall of a tree shortly bef.

B. 1613, freem. 7 Sept. 1637; had been in office in Eng. and in 1639 was call. to be teacher in the ch. at Hampton, there d. without issue 28 Dec. 1661, aged a 84; had Timothy, wh. d. prob. at full age, bef. his f.

NICHOLAS, Dover, perhaps br. or 8. of the first John, in Feb. 1690, join. with most of the N. H. peop. in prayer to be join. to Mass. WILLIAM, Dover, br. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of William Pomfret, had Pomfret, b. 4 Mar. 1681; Martha, 29 Mar. 1683; William, 14 Nov. 1686; Samuel, 6 Mar. 1689; Sarah, 21 Apr. 1692; and Leah, 17 Feb. 1695.

Peter Bacon of Taunton. John was on service in Philip's war. Ebenezer m. a d. of Bacon, but was weak, and his est. was in his mo.'s hands, not manag. by him, as Deane tells. Deborah m. 1666, Thomas Woodworth. Experience, and Ichabod, also, had s. of same names. JOHN, Reading, freem. 1645, had John, wh. d. 14 Jan. 1652, and John, again, b. 18 Mar. 1652; d.

Naomi d. 24 Feb. 1751, aet. 82; and a fourth s. was Ebenezer of Pomfret JACOB, Cambridge, eldest br. of the preced. that surv. infancy, by w. Patience had two s.

Thirteen of this fam. had been gr. in 1839 at Harv. and thirteen at other N. E. coll.
DAND, JOHN, Boston 1641, clk. in the prothonotary's office (but I hear not where), gave much trouble by join. others in petit. for enlargem. of privilege 1645. Winslow describes him as liv. in ano. man's house at board hire. He was not a freeholder. See our Gen. Court's Declarat. in Hutch. con. 211, one of the most curious papers in that invalua. collect. We might presume, on his ill-success in Mass., that he went home, but Farmer says he was of Dover 1654. Winthrop II. 262, 92-5. The learned auth. of "Gens Sylvestrina," one of the most agreeable books of genealogy ever print. says, the Dands were "the most considerable fam. in the sixteenth cent. at Mansfield in Nottinghamsh." Yet they were mercers, as he tells.
DANDY, WILLIAM, Charlestown, prob. call. Davy in Frothingham, 181, was in 1680 one of the tythingmen of the town. See Dady.
DANE, DANIEL, Andover, s. prob. of Rev. Francis, by w. Deliverance [[vol. 2, p. 6]] had Nathaniel, b. 26 Mar. 1684. But he had liv. at Concord, was one of the tythingmen there 1680. FRANCIS, Andover, s. of John of Roxbury, b. in Eng. was of Ipswich 1648, and soon after ord. sec. min. of A. was brot. by his f. 1636, it is said, in the same ship with Nathaniel Rogers, wh. was half a yr. on her passage from London to Boston; by w. Elizabeth d of Edmund Ingalls, m. bef. he went to A. wh. d. 9 June 1676, were all his ch. prob. b. but we have not their names or dates, with exactness; yet two, Nathaniel, and Elizabeth were b. perhaps bef. his ordin. Besides these, he had, also, Albert, and two nam. Francis, wh. all d. young; Hannah, wh. m. 14 Nov. 1666, William Goodhue; Phebe m. 30 May 1671, Joseph Robinson; Abigail m. 12 Oct. 1675, Francis Faulkner; and Francis, again. He m. sec. w. 22 Nov. 1677, Mary Thomas, wh. d. 18 Feb. 1689; and, third, Hannah, wid. of George Abbot, wh. surv. to June 1711. He d. 17 Feb. 1697, aet. 82. He was in danger from the cruel infatua. of 1692, when others of high rank fled from the suspicion of witchcraft, and of his humbler neighb. sheep of his fold, innocent of the nonsense as hims. not a few suffer. Hutch. Il. 38. FRANCIS, Andover, s. of the preced. m. 16 Nov. 1681, Hannah Poor, freem. 1691, d. 1738, aet. 81, leav. Francis, John, Joseph, and Daniel. JOHN, Roxbury, from Co. Essex, Eng. came 1636, bring. ch. of a dec. w. Francis, Elizabeth and John; was perhaps the freem. of 2 June 1641, m. 2 July 1643, Ann, or Hannah, or Annis, wid. of William Chandler, and d. says town rec. bur. says the ch. rec. 14 Sept. 1658. His will, of a week preced. pro. 16 Oct. names only those ch. of wh. he calls Elizabeth Howe, perhaps w. of the sec. Abraham of Roxbury. Perhaps he had rem. a short time to Ipswich, and came back to R. His wid. had third h. John Parmenter of Sudbury, and d. 15 Mar. 1683. JOHN, Ipswich, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. at Colchester 1613, perhaps came to Roxbury 1636, with his f. freem. 2 June 1641, unless that name in the rec. of the Col. apply to his f. and he be freem. of 1682, was a surgeon, d. 29th Sept. 1684, leav. good est. for that day; had Mary b. 1639, wh. m. 24 Aug. 1658, William Chandler of Andover, wh. was s. of her gr.f.'s sec. w. His will names w. two s. John, and Philemon, ds. Elizabeth and Sarah, gr.ch. Mary Chandler, and Daniel Hovey. In the close investigat. of recent days it is found, that Elizabeth m. Reginald Foster; Sarah m. 23 Sept. 1668, Daniel Warner; and a d. Rebecca m. James Hovey, wh. perhaps was the man k. by the Ind. at Brookfield, 2 Aug. 1675. The deficiency of Ipswich rec. leaves all else unkn. but he was ancest. of Hon. Nathan, H. C. 1778, LL. D. of Beverly, disting. in jurisprud. and of Hon. Joseph, H. C. 1799, of Maine.
NATHANIEL, Andover, s. of Rev. Francis, m. 12 Dec. 1672, Deliverance, d. of Robert Hazeltine, had Nathaniel, d. 16 Oct. 1674; and Francis, d. 3 Nov. 1679; prob. others; and d. 1725, aet. 80. His wife was imprison. on charge of witchcr, 1692; and when innocence would not avail, sav. her life by false confession of guilt. On either plea, guilty or not, the father of lies was sure to triumph. PHILEMON, Ipswich, s. of sec. John, freem. 1674, was a physician, m. 7 [[vol. 2, p. 7]] Oct. 1685, Mary Thompson; and 25 Dec. 1690, took sec. w. Ruth, d. of James Converse of Woburn, and d. 18 Oct. 1716. Of his ch. Mary; Philemon, b. 1693, d. next yr.; Philemon, again, and Edward, tw. 17 July 1695; and Ruth, 24 Aug. 1698; no doubt of the mo. can be felt, unless the first may have been by former w. THOMAS, Concord, had, I suppose, by w. Elizabeth a d. b. 24 Feb. 1643, and certain. by her had Hannah, 18 Mar. 1645, if this be the real name of him print. Dann in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 347, with wh. conf. G. R. IV. 271. WILLIAM, Woburn, had Martha, b. 17 Aug. 1671; William, 5 July 1673; Samuel, 26 July 1675; John, 25 June 1677; Sarah, in 1687, by w. Martha Great difficulty occurs in turning over rec. by frequent substitution of Dean, or Deane, or Daine, for Dane, and the reverse.
DANFORTH, JOHN, Dorchester, s. of the first Rev. Samuel, ord. 28 June 1682, seventh min. of that ch. m. 21 Nov. 1682, Elizabeth (but in Geneal. Reg. VII. 58, call. Hetty), d. of James Minot, wh. d. 6 June 1722; and he d. 26 May 1730. His age has been overstated by 8 yrs. in Dr. Harris and others. He had Elijah, b. 1683, H. C. 1703, d. 8 Oct. 1736 ; John, 26 Jan. 1689, d. 2 Mar. 1729; and (beside Mehitable, whose gr.stone tells, that she d. 1 May 1727, in 27th yr.), Samuel, H. C. 1715, judge of Pro. counsel. and mandamus couns. whose w. Elizabeth Symmes d. 13 Jan. 1775, aet. 67, and he d. 27 Oct. 1777, aet. 81. This Samuel was f. of Samuel, the disting. physician, H. C. 1758, wh. d. 16 Nov. 1827, aged 86; and of Thomas, H. C. 1762, wh. at the revo. adher. to the crown, and d. at London Apr. 1820. See the fine note by William T. Harris in Geneal. Reg. VII. 315. *JONATHAN, Billerica, youngest s. of Nicholas, b. prob. at Framlingham, Co. Suffk. came 1634 with his f. m. 22 Nov. 1655, Elizabeth d. of John Poulter, of Billerica, dec. had eleven ch.; Mary, b. 29 Jan. 1657 ; Elizabeth 27 May 1658 ; Jonathan ; John, wh. d. 7 Feb. 1661; a d. whose name is not certain, 23 Jan. 1661; Thomas, 29 Apr. 1670, d. at 3 mos.; Nicholas, 1 July 1671; and ano. John, 22 Feb. 1662, however, being the only ones kn. by me; exc. Ann, wh. m. 22 Jam 1690, Oliver Whiting; but of six s. only two, Jonathan, b. 1659, freem. 1690, and Samuel, 1666, left issue. He was, perhaps, freem. 1652, the first capt. of B. rep. 1684, disting. as surveyor of ld. town clk. 20 yrs. and d. 7 Sept. 1712, leav. wid. his sec. w.
JONATHAN, Billerica, s. of the preced. m. 27 June 1682, Rebecca Parker of Billerica, had Rebecca, b. 30 June 1683; Thomas, 17 Mar. 1685; and Jonathan, 22 Mar. 1688. Perhaps the f. d. that yr. But in the Diary of Noadiah Russell, Geneal. Reg. VII. 57, it is told, that he d. 13 Nov. 1682. Yet this may easily be reconcil. by supposing Russell to mean the s. of Thomas, not of Jonathan; tho Bond mistook him for the latter. *NICHOLAS, Cambridge, from Framlingham, Co. Suff. came 1631, freem. [[vol. 2, p. 8]] 3 Mar. 1636, rep. 1636 and 7, d. Apr. 1638, leav. Thomas, wh. was b. 1622; Samuel, Sept. 1626, H. C. 1643; Jonathan, 29 Feb. 1628; Ann, prob. 1620, w. of Matthew Bridge; Lydia, w. of William Beaman; and the eldest, Elizabeth 1618, w. of Andrew Belcher, gr.mo. of Gov. Jonathan. His w. Elizabeth had d. 1629 in Eng. SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. came with his f. was freem. 1647, and again his name is giv. 1648, ord. as colleag. with Rev. John Eliot, 24 Sept. 1650, m. 5 Nov. 1651, Mary, youngest ch. of Rev. John Wilson of Boston, had Samuel, b. 14 Jan. 1653 "at nine o'clock at night," bapt. at Boston two days after by his gr.f. d. at 6 mos.; Mary, 24, bapt. 28 May 1654, d. at 5 and 1/2 yrs.; Elizabeth bapt. 13 July, tho. her b. was giv. in Geneal. Reg. 1656, d. at 3 and 1/2 yrs.; Sarah, 30 Oct. bapt. 7 Nov. 1658, d. at 1 yr.; these three in ten days; John, 8, bapt. 11 Nov. 1660, H. C. 1677; Mary, again, 13, bapt. 15 Mar. 1663; Elizabeth again, 9 Feb. 1665, d. at 7 and 1/2 yrs.; Samuel, again, b. 10, bapt. 16, but b. 18 Dec. 1666, acc. Geneal. Reg. VII.321, H.

Ellis in Hist. of Roxbury, p. 96, notes the d. as 1674, and the ch. as twelve, in both points foll. Farmer, and wisely repudiating the town rec. that makes it 1673. In both he is foll. Geneal. Reg. VII. 317 by a writer of scrupulous accuracy wh., however, miscounted his yrs. Farmer, Ellis, and Harris must, I presume, include a posthum. ch. as in the will anticipat.; and yet none of them give the name. His will, pro. 24 Dec. 1674, was made, say the witnesses, "The day immediately preced. his d." but we must go behind them to kn. the mo. or yr. His wid. m. Ruck, says Farmer, in Mem. of Harv. Grad. p. 32; but in his MS. notes upon his Gen. Reg. he spells the name Rocke.
