Uniform. this name is Dickerson in N. Y. rec. as it is found in the Augmentation Office, Westminster Hall, on the return from custom ho. at Yarmouth; but the name of bapt. is spelt Feleaman, that seems much unlike that of the friend of St. Paul. Hon. Mahlon D. late a Senator of U. S. from New Jersey is a descend.

THOMAS, Rowley 1643, d. 1662, leav. James, and four ds. THOMAS, Stratford, thought to be s. of Thomas of Fairfield, d. early in 1700, his inv. being of 14 Feb. leav. wid. Lydia, and ch.

Often it is Dixon.
DIKE, DYKE, or DIKES, ABRAHAM, Dorchester, bef. 1656, when he sold part of his lot to Thomas Wiswall. ANTHONY, Salem, by w. Margery had Anthony, b. 24 Mar. 1666; Nathaniel, 25 Dec. 1667; Margery, 16 Aug. 1669; Jonathan, 28 Mar. 1666; Nathaniel, 25 Dec. 1667; Margery, 16 Aug. 1669; Jonathan, 28 Mar. 1673; Mary; and Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1680; d. 1679, and admin. 28 Nov. was gr. to his wid. Felt confus. him with Anthony Dick, ment. in Winthrop Hist. I. 287, of wh. very little is ever heard.

Rebecca m. 1706 Josiah Tainer.
DILL, GEORGE, Watertown 1671, says Bond, d. there 1716, a pauper. Perhaps it is the same as Dell. THOMAS, Marblehead, d. June 1668. Admin was giv. to RICHARD, of wh. no more is kn.
DILLINGHAM, *EDWARD, Lynn 1636, from Bitteswell Co. Leicester, where he had est. rem. next yr. to Sandwich; was rep. 1642, and had Henry; and John; the younger b. in Eng. a. 1630. His will of 1 May 1666, pro. 1 June 1667, is abstract. in Geneal. Reg. VII. 225. EDWARD, Sandwich, s. of Henry, left ch. Edward, John, and Simeon. HENRY, Sandwich, s. of Edward first of the same, b. in Eng., bore arms 1643, had Edward, and John. JOHN, Ipswich, wh. came in the fleet with Winthrop was, perhaps, br. of Edward, a man of respectab. condition, as is pro. by the prefix. at his request, 19 Oct. 1630, and also at adm. as freem. 18 May foll. came from Leicestersh. was first of Boston, being No. 71 of the list of mem. and dead is writ. against it, so that he d. soon, leav. w. Sarah, and ch. Edward and Sarah; but Sarah alone was liv. when her mo. made her will at Ipswich, 10 July 1636. She m. John Caldwell, and was prob. a relat. to Richard Saltonstall and Samuel Appleton, as may be judg. from that instrum. See the fine Appleton fam. Memo. JOHN, New Haven 1644. JOHN, Sandwich, br. of Henry, b. in Eng. m. 24 Mar. 1651, Elizabeth d. of Henry Feake, had John, b. 1663, perhaps others bef. or after, was a capt. and d. 21 May 1715 at Harwich, and his wid. d. 15 Dec. 1720. JOHN, Barnstable, s. of the preced. m. Lydia, prob. d. of Isaac Chapman, had Lydia; Hannah; Rebecca; Abigail; John, b. 1701; Thankful; and Sarah; but the dates, or even order of b. are unkn. He d. 11 Sept. 1746; and his wid. d. 9 Sept. 1760.
DIMAN, DYMOND, DIAMOND, DYAMONT, or DIMOND, JOHN, Lynn 1647, perhaps rem. to Kittery bef. 1652, there call. ropemaker. JOHN, New London, m. 17 June 1674, Rebecca, wid. of Tobias Minter, d. of James Bemis. MOSES, Fairfield 1670, s. of Thomas, had large est. w. Abigail, s. Moses, and ds. Abigail, Esther, and Grace. His will was dat. 21 Mar. 1684, and the inv. is a few wks. later. This name is often writ. without final d, always at Yale. His wid. m. 1685, Edward Howard. ROBERT, Roxbury. His w. Mary d. 1643. THOMAS, Fairfield, lost a vessel and cargo by fire in 1656, and d. 1658, had Thomas, Moses, bef. ment. and John. It may be, that he is the same person under Deming; but it is not likely. THOMAS, Fairfield, prob. s. of the preced. a mariner, m. 22 Sept. 1670, Elizabeth d. of Peter Bradley, rem. to New London, [[vol. 2, p. 51]] had Elizabeth b. 14 Aug. 1672; Thomas, 22 July 1675; Moses, 14 May 1677; Ruth, 12 Sept. 1680; and John, 25 July 1686; and d. 1687. WILLIAM, Kittery, perhaps s. of John of the same, in 1679 left wid. Joan, and ch. John, Margaret, and Grace.
DIMMOCK, DIMUCK, or DIMICK, JOHN, Barnstable, s. of Shubael, by w. Elizabeth had Sarah, bapt. 2 Aug. 1691; Hannah, 31 July 1692; Mary, 19 Aug. 1694; Theophilus, 11 Oct. 1696; Timothy, 11 Sept. 1698; and Ebenezer, 24 Mar. 1700. *SHUBAEL, Barnstable, s. of Thomas, m. Apr. 1663 Joanna Bursley, d. of John, for sec. w. but by . first w. had Thomas, b.

But his eldest s. Thomas was k. by the E. Ind. 1697, then a capt. at Damariscotta, as in Magn. VII. 92, may be read.
*THOMAS, Dorchester 1635, selectman that yr. freem. 25 May 1636; rem. to Hingham 1638, next yr. to Scituate, and in 1640 to Barnstable, of wh. he was 7 Aug. 1650 ord. rul. Elder, and rep. 5 yrs. being the first from the town in Dec. 1640. He had Thomas, bef. ment.; perhaps John, and certain. Timothy, bapt. 12 Jan. 1640, d. in few mos.; Mehitable, 17 Apr. 1642; Shubael, 16 Sept. 1644; beside a s. and d. tw. bur. without names, 18 Mar. 1641. He d. 1659, but the wid.was liv. 1683. His nuncup. will gave all to his w. Ann for the reason that, "the ch. were hers as well as his." Various spelling has this name appear. in; and it may, originally, be the same as that of Dymocke, the heredit. champion of Eng. wh. at coronations, owes the service of challenge to all competitors for the crown.
DINELY, or DYNELEY, FATHERGONE, Boston, butcher, youngest s. of William, got his name from the incident of his f.'s loss "in a violent tempest of wind and snow," on 15 Dec. 1638, betw. Boston and Roxbury, ten days bef. his b.; m. Apr. 1663, Hannah, d. of Edward Porter, d. early. Inv. by the wid. was ret. 23 Jan. 1675. JOHN, Boston 1651, mariner, eldest br. of the preced. b. prob. in Eng. THOMAS, Boston, perhaps br. of the preced. d. 15 Jan. 1655.

"s. of our gone br."; was one of the favorers of his fellow christian, Mrs. Hutchinson, and therefore disarm. Nov. 1637, d. in a storm 15 Dec. next on Boston neck. Winthrop I. 248, 286.

DINGLEY, JACOB, Marshfield, s. of John, by w. Elizabeth had John, and Joseph, and d. 18 Aug. 1691. His wid. d. 30 Mar. 1718. JOHN, Lynn, rem. to Sandwich 1637, thence to Marshfield, a. 1644, and d. 1658; by w. Sarah had Jacob, bef. ment.; Mary, wh. m. 19 Dec. 1654, Capt. Josiah Standish, and d. the next yr.; Sarah, prob. wh. m. 1658, William Ford, jr.; and Hannah, wh. m. Josiah Kean; beside prob. that John wh. was bur. 9 July 1665. The fam. spread into Duxbury; and descend. remain in that neighborhood. RICHARD, a Bapt. min. of Newport 1685, had come to Boston from Eng. rem. 1694 to S. Carolina. Benedict. Backus, II. 109.
DINNY, EDWARD, Boston, freem. 17 Apr. 1637. WILLIAM, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, br. it may be, of the preced. But I have some reason for thinking this name Dennis.
DINSDALE, || WILLIAM, Boston, an early propr. whose ho. and garden are set out in the book of poss.sions.; by w. Martha had John, b. May 1644; Martha, 10 Jan. 1649; Mary, 24 Sept. 1651; and Sarah, 7 Jan. or 2 June 1657; freem. 1657, ar. co. 1658; in 1663 was aged 47, and d. at Barbados.
DISBROW, DISBOROW, or DESBROUGH, NICHOLAS, Hartford 1639, an early sett. not orig. propr. m. 1640, Mary Brunson, had Phebe, bapt. 20 Dec. 1646; Abigail, b. 1 Feb. 1649, and prob. more; and, after 1669, says Porter, he m. Elizabeth wid. of Thwaite Strickland; d. in 1683, aged 71, and left four ds. Mary, m. Obadiah Spencer; one m. Samuel Eggleston; Phebe m. John Kelsey; and Abigail m. Robert Flood. In the yr. of his death, some ridicul. mischief is, by the Magnalia VI. 69, honor. as a tragedy of witchcraft; but Cotton borrow. the nonsense from his f.'s Remarkab. Provid. p. 113. By Col. Rec. of Conn. I. 45, he seems to I have been unfortunate in his early relations. *PETER, Rye, in New Haven jurisdict. 1660, of wh. he was one of the purch. from the Ind. rep. 1665, perhaps also for Greenwich, in 1681 was call. 50 yrs. old. He had m. Sarah, d. of Nicholas Knapp of Stamford. A John D. of Rye 1683 may have been his s. THOMAS, Fairfield 1685, or earlier, perhaps s. of the preced. had w. Mercy, and s. Thomas, wh. seems to be of age at d. of his f. early in 1707.
DISCO, TEAGUE, Exeter, took o. of alleg. 30 Nov. 1677.
DISER, sometimes DICER, WILLIAM, Salem 1668, perhaps ill spell. or very rare name, sign. to petn. against imposts. He m. 20 Nov. 1664, Elizabeth Austin, had Elizabeth b. 2 July 1667; and Honor, 2 Apr. 1673.
DISPAW, HENRY, Lynn, d. 4 Oct. 1676. His will of 20 Feb. nam. s. Henry, and Edward. HENRY, Lynn, prob. s. of the preced. had ch. b. June 1680, wh. d. next mo. This seems a very strange name, found by Mr. Felt, perhaps once spel. wrong. It is Dispan. in Essex Inst. II. 273.
DIVEN, JOHN, Lynn 1643, perhaps had John; d. 4 Oct. 1684. Lewis. His s. JOHN was perhaps of Lynn, freem. 1691, had John, b. 16 May [[vol. 2, p. 53]] 1678; Ezekiel, 25 Dec. 1681, d. in few days; perhaps may have d. at the date giv. to the preced. Mary, perhaps sis. of the younger, d. of the elder John, m. 23 Mar. 1663, Jonathan Witt.
DIX, ANTHONY, Plymouth, one of the first comers, 1623, in the Ann, took a sh. in the div. of ld. next yr. but not in the div. of cattle 1627, bec. he left the Col. and join. with Conant and other Mass. people; freem. 18 May 1631, was tak. by the pirate Bull in 1632, but allow. easi. to escape, and in 1637 was of Charlestown or Salem, had w. Tabitha, wh. after his d. m. Nathaniel Pitman; and was lost by shipwr. of his 30 ton boat on Cape Cod 15 Dec. 1638, the same storm in nh. Dinely perish. at Boston. This we learn from Danforth's Almanac. See Winthrop I. 287, who spells the name Dick wh. Felt prefers to give as Dike, and both Dikes and Deekes are found in some rec. ANTHONY, Salem, s. perhaps of the preced. by w. Margery had Anthony, b. prob. 24 Mar. 1666; Nathaniel, 25 Dec. 1667; Margery, 16 Aug. 1669; Jonathan, 28 Mar. 1673; Mary; and Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1680.
EDWARD, Watertown, came, prob. in the fleet with Winthrop and was first of Boston, No. 49 among mem. of the ch. freem. 4 Mar. 1635, by w. Jane, whose fam. name was Wilkinson, had Abigail, b. 2 May 1637; Mary, 2 May 1639; John, 4 Sept. 1640; and Rebecca, 18 Feb. 1642; had sec. w. Susanna, wh. surv. him; was a selectman, and d. 9 July 1660. The ds. were all m. viz. Abigail, 1 Dec. 1653, to Thomas Parks of Cambridge; Mary, 5 Feb. 1663, Abraham Brown, jr.; and Rebecca, 18 Feb. 1668, Thomas Flagg, jr. His will of 25 June 1660, makes s. John Excor. but the inv. was sworn to Dec. foll. by serg. John Wincoll, his guard'n. Bond gives him ano. d. Deborah, without date of b. wh. m. Richard Barnes of Marlborough, he says, and disting. him from the Boston ch. mem. by remark. that he emb. at age of 19, on 16 Jan. 1635, and that Jane Wilkinson, aged 20 emb. at same time. So there must have been two of the name. But the mem. of Boston ch. and not the youth of 19 must have been that freem., and this Deborah must have been a wid. for she was mo. of Leonard of Wethersfield. JOHN, Taunton 1669. Baylies, II. 241. JOHN, Watertown, s. of Edward, m. 7 Jan. 1671, Elizabeth d. of John Barnard, had Elizabeth b. 4 Dec. 1671; John, 6 Mar. 1673; Mary, 27 Feb. 1675, d. next yr.; Abigail, 15 Mar. 1677; Rebecca, 1 Mar. 1679, d. soon; Deborah, 20 July 1680; Edward, 25 Sept. 1682; Joseph, 8 Sept. 1686; and Jane, bapt. 13 Oct. 1689; and he d. 7 Nov. 1714, leav. wid. Elizabeth JOHN, Hartford, perhaps br. of Leonard, was requir. by ct. to m. Mary Birdwell, but was complain. of for beating her, 1676, was still there tax. 1683; sold his ho. and ld. 1686, and one of his ch. John d. 1692. John, Reading, B. of Ralph, freem. 1691. JOHN, Wethersfield, s. of Leonard of the same, had w. Rebecca, and perhaps ch. not ment. d. Nov. 1711, aged 50, and his wid. d. next mo.
LEONARD, Wethersfield, 1645, had w. Sarah, and d. 7 Dec. 1697, leav. John, Samuel, and three ds. He had been at Branford, and gr. of ld. there 1648; was b. prob. [[vol. 2, p. 54]] 1624, and his will wh. names the ds. Mercy, Hannah, and Elizabeth provid. for the wid. wh. d. 1709. RALPH, IPSWICH 1647, fisherman. had w. Esther and ch. John, b. 12 Mar. 1659; Samuel, 28 Aug. 1661; rem. next yr. to Reading, had there Stephen, 18 June 1664; and Stephen, again, 14 Dec. 1672; freem. 1684, and d. 1688. Of his descend. are Rev. Samuel, H.

DIXEY, JOHN, Salem 1639. Felt. One JOHN, of Salem, m. 9 Dec. 1679, Sarah Collins; but he prob. was s. of the first Thomas. THOMAS, Salem 1637, had there bapt. Mary, 12 Jan. 1645; Abigail, 1 Oct. 1648; Thomas, 29 Jan. 1654; Margaret, 16 Mar. 1656; and John, 26 Apr. 1657; was of Marblehead 1674, d. 1691. Ano. Thomas, at Marblehead, sign. the petn. against imposts 1668, as did the Salem man. Yet perhaps it was the same man, for in such cases it is sometimes thot. that more value attaches to the number than to the argum. and undue artifice is employ. to swell the list. Margaret, aged 18, was one of the serv. of Percival Greene, emb. at London 1635, in the Susan and Ellen. WILLIAM, Salem, had come to Cape Ann 1629, was next at Lynn, had bapt. at S. Abigail, 25 Dec. 1636; Ann, 17 May 1638; John, 1639; Elizabeth 1641; and others; freem. 14 May 1634; was capt., of Beverly, a. 1677, and d. 1690, aet. 82. Lewis. Felt. Gibbs. Whitman. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 260. Ann m. 11 Aug. 1657, Nehemiah Howard; and Elizabeth m. 15 Dec. 1658, Samuel Morgan.
DIXON, JEREMIAH, New Haven 1639, one of the seven for found. of the ch. 4 June, rem. bef. 1644. WILLIAM, prob. was of Charlestown 1633-8, Kittery 1649, freem. 1652, d. Mar. 1666, perhaps then of York. In his will of 13 Feb. of that yr. gave to w. Joan, s. James, d. Susanna Frost, perhaps w. of Charles, to John Brown, and to childr. of Henry Milbury. Seven of this name, beside four call. Dickson, had, in 1834, been gr. at the N. E. coll. tho. none of either at Harv. See Dickson.
DIXWELL, JAMES, New Haven, a propr. 1685, unless the rec. be wrong, as by confus. with the assum. surname, I suspect. JOHN, Dorchester 1640, gave his sh. with others, in Thompson's Isld. 7 Feb. 1642, for support of a free sch. My insert. of this name should be accomp. with explanat. that no other notice of such an one, near that time, is found. What thus I read in the lithograph copy publish. by the Dorchester Antiq. and Hist. Soc. as frontisp. to that Ed. of Blake's Ann. 1846, the No. on the list being 47, is by a writer of considerab. research, in Geneal. Reg. [[vol. 2, p. 55]] V. 391, call. John Pearce. Yet it may be necessary, for whoever will form an opinion on either side, to ask wh. of the two, No. 30, or No. 47, is likely to be the fac-simile of signature of John Pierce, wh. had been selectman and rep. of the town, and soon after the date of the benefact. rem. to Boston. JOHN, New Haven, came in 1664, it is said, after long concealm. in Europe or elsewhere, flying from prosecut. as one of the regicides, but it is suppos. his first quiet resid. was at Hadley, with Goffe and Whalley, under shelter of Rev. John Russell, tho. the length of time is unkn. At New Haven he was call. by hims. and others, James Davids, m. 3 Nov. 1673, I think for sec. w. Joanna, wid. of Benjamin Ling, with wh. (wh. d. in few wks.) he obtain. comfortab. prop. and he m. again 23 Oct. 1677, Bethia or Bathsheba How, d. of Jeremy, had Mary, b. 9 June 1679; John, 6 Mar. 1681; and Elizabeth 14 July 1682, wh. d. young. His wid. d. at Middletown 27 Dec. 1729, aged 83, so that she was 39 yrs. younger than her h. His concealm. was perfect, but his real name was kn. to one or more of the chief peop. and confess. by hims. shortly bef. his d. 18 Mar. 1690 in his 82d yr. His only d. Mary, m. 23 Dec. 1707, John Collins of Middletown. The family was and still is highly respect. in Kent; and in the gr. civ. war, the head of it, Sir Basil, stood and suffer. for the royal cause.
JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. took his f.'s true name, was in good esteem at New Haven, m. 1 Sept. 1708, Mary, d. of John Prout, rem. to Boston, was a goldsmith, a rul. Elder of the new North ch. d. 2 Apr. 1725 of smallpox by inocul. leav. his 2d w. Abigail and ch. Basil, b. 7 July 1711, so call. for his gr. uncle, Sir Basil, a baro.; John, 1718, and Elizabeth 1716, wh. were all by first w. Their uncle Prout was guard'n. of all the ch. The f. left small est. no will; and his s. John, wh. was of ar. co. 1741, d. 1749, without male issue. By w. Abigail Bridgham of Boston, m. 18 Apr. 1723, female line perpetuat. the stock, and John Hunt, H. C. 1796, a descend. was permit. to assume the surname of the regicide.
DOANE, DANIEL, Eastham 1658, perhaps s. of John, m. Hepzibah Cole, had Constant, b. 7 Mar. 1670. EPHRAIM, Eastham, may have been br. of the preced. m. 5 Feb. 1668, Mercy Knowles, prob. d. of Richard, had Patience, b. 28 Jan. 1669, d. soon; Apphia, 18 (Col. Rec. says 28), July 1670; Hezekiah, Aug. 1672; Thomas, 4 Sept. 1674; Ebenezer, Apr. 1676; Nehemiah, Aug. 1680, d. soon; Patience, again, Apr. 1682; and Ruhama, 30 Apr. 1685. HENRY, Watertown 1643. + JOHN, Plymouth 1630, an Assist. 1633, but not after, as he declin. the civ. office on being chos. deac.; rem. 1644 to Eastham, there was deac. and d. 21 Feb. 1686. His age was great, perhaps 95. One report of his d. makes it in 1707, and age 110, but it is not support. by any authority; and prob. the f. and s. possib gr.s. of the same name were confus. by the [[vol. 2, p. 56]] reporter of the childish exagger. His w. Abigail had, beside Daniel, bef. ment. John; Ephraim; Lydia, wh. m. 1645, Samuel Hicks; Abigail, b. 13 Jan. 1632, at the age of 60, bec. sec. w. of Samuel Lothrop, outliv. him many yrs. and d. 23 Jan. 1735. Above 3 yrs. bef. a century sermon (I presume on her entry upon the hundredth yr.), had been preach. in her room by Rev. Joseph Lord. See Boston Weekly Journal of 1735.

The name is not preserv. in S. Deane, 263.
