DOUGLASS, HENRY, Boston, freem. 1657. His d. Ann m. 1 Sept. 1660, Eliphalet Het. JOHN, Dover, m. 16 Sept. 1687, a wid. Nason whose h. is not of my acquaint. nor her bapt. name as print. in Geneal. Reg. VII. 119. ROBERT, New London, s. of William, m. 1665, Mary, d. of Robert Hempstead, had William, b. 1666; Mary, 1668; Ann, 1669; John, 1671; Hannah, 1673; Sarah, 1674; Elizabeth 1677; Thomas, 1679; and Phebe, 1681; his w. d. 1711; and he d. 1716. *WILLIAM, perhaps of Gloucester first, but of Boston 1640, cooper, freem. 1646, by w.

DOVE, MATTHEW, Salem, had ch. bapt. there, Hannah, and Elizabeth 10 Sept. 1654; Dorcas, 5 Oct. 1656; Bethia, 30 May 1658; Daniel, 3 Nov. 1661; Deborah, 20 May 1666; and a d. whose name is not on the rec. 1 July foll. beside Sarah, b. 3 July 1660, d. in a few days; Matthew, 3 Dec. 1667; and Ruth, 15 Oct. 1673. But the b. of Doreas is made 11 days later than the bapt. Many such gross errors fall under our notice in rec. of Boston and other towns as well as Salem; and when the ch. or the town rec. is to be prefer. must commonly be decid in favor of the ch. for obvious reason. Yet at New Haven the opposite conclus. is the right one, for the town rec. is unusual. correct, and that of the ch. very inexact. Two fifths of those in the Geneal. Reg. IX. 357-63, are wrong. This name of Dove, in the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. II. 43, is made Dour, thro. misread. of the old chirography for the last letter, as I presume; but Mr. Patch very rarely fails. Hannah m. 20 Mar. 1671, Richard Harris.
DOW, FRANCIS, Salisbury, in the rec. of proprs. has the prefix of respect, and is third in the list, came from the city of Salisbury in Co.

Phebe had Stephen, b. 29 Mar. 1642; Mary, 26 Apr. 1644; Martha, 1 June 1648; John; and Thomas; rem. to Haverhill, and d. 31 May 1654. In his will made only two days bef. his d. the wid. Phebe and the five ch. (but John and Thomas first), are ment. so that, possib. they were older than the others. THOMAS, Ipswich 1675, perhaps s. of the preced. had w.

Emanuel, a clerg. in Ireland, whose letter to Archbp. Usher may be found in Parr's Life of that prelate, came in 1638 with his w. Lucy, d. of Adam Winthrop, Esqr. Of Groton, in Co. Suff. where she was bapt. 27 Jan. 1601, sis. of our first Gov. of Mass. m. 10 Apr. 1622. They were adm. of the ch. 4 Nov. 1638, and he was sw. a freem. Mar. 1639, rep. the same yr. 40, 1, [[vol. 2, p. 66]] 4 and 8; was propos. for an Assist. in 1641, but not chos. His ch. were George, b. prob. in 1623, or 4, and was, perhaps, kept in sch. at home until his f. came; Mary, wh. came May 1633 with Gov. Coddington in the Mary and Jane, and in Nov. of that yr. was adm. of the ch. in Boston; James, wh. was brot. by his uncle, the Gov. in the Arbella 1630; Susan, wh. came at the same time with Mary; Ann; Lucy; and these foll. b. on our side of the ocean, John, bapt. 1 Mar. 1640; and Dorcas, 7 Feb. 1641. He went home early in 1642, back next yr. and went again, in 1644, on business, but came back next yr.
The date of his d. is not found, nor that of his w. tho. we see proof of his req. to the Gen. Ct. Sept. 1653 for his 600 acres to be laid out, and of her liv. 4 Aug. 1656, when she gave to Capt. Joseph Gardner dowry on his m. with her d. and the same shows that her h. Emanuel was d. The s. James, I think, liv. at Ipswich; Mary m. Anthony Stoddard of Boston; Ann was w. of the intrepid Capt. Gardner, k. at the gr. Narraganset swamp fight in Philip's war, and after m. Gov. Bradstreet. There was a John D. wh. d. at Boston 29 Apr. 1694, but he was a merch. from Nevis, where was his fam. and est.
GEORGE, Salem, s. of the preced. b. in London, was partly prepar. for coll. by Rev. John Fiske, and gr. in the first class H. C. 1642, went to Eng. by way of Newfoundland, St. Kitts, Barbados, and Nevis, and in each isl. was desir. to preach, but perhaps saw prospect of greater usefulness in his native land, where he bec. as his uncle Winthrop tells, 1645, a chaplain in the regim. of Okey, wh. after was made one of the judges to sign the warrant for execut. of Charles 1. He got forward fast (possib. faster, as Okey sunk), in favor with Cromwell, wh. made him his resident at the Hague; and in 1654 unit. with "the blood of all the Howards" by m. with Frances, descend. thro. the sec. s. from that fourth Duke of Norfolk, wh. was by Queen Elizabeth behead. for tenderness to Mary, Queen of Scots.
The Hon. Charles Howard, br. of Frances, was the first, of only three, by Oliver creat. peers of Eng. under the title of Viscount Morpeth. The infirmity of this honor was, soon after the restor. strengthen. by his creat. 20 Apr. 1661, as first Earl of Carlisle, wh. title is now enjoy. by his lineal heirs. Previous to this dignity conferr. on the Howard stock, and even bef. his restor. the kin, had made D. a knight for his good conduct in Holland; and, 1 July, 1663, he was made baronet, by the style of Sir George D. of Gamlingay, in Co. Cambridge, where his est. was call. the largest in that county. His w. d. 10 July 1683, and he d. 1684. His s. Charles was one of the tellers in the Exch. by indent. at London 13 Sept. 1700, sold the est. at Salem, that was his gr.f.'s and to him from Emanuel had come thro. George, as in our Reg. of Essex Co. Vol. XVII. appears. His eldest s. Sir George m. Catharine, eldest d. of James, Earl of Salisbury, [[vol. 2, p. 67]] of the illustr. house of Cecil, and their s. Sir George, after sit. in two Parliam. of Queen Anne, and the first of Geo. II. d. without issue, and left the splendid resid. devise to the Univ. of Cambr. wh. laid the founda. of Downing Coll. In possess. of Dawson Turner, Esqr. F. A. S. at Great Yarmouth, is a collect. of Downing papers, in wh. some curious matter may prob. exist. I had slight inspect. of them in 1842, but look. only at the earliest, when the N. E. youth was scout-master-gen. in Scotland. A despatch from Downing, of 3 Sept. 1651, that day of Worcester route, wh. Cromwell, with proper forecast, call. his crowning mercy, may be read in Cary's Memorials of the civ. war, Vol. II.
It is far more perspicuous and soldier-like than that of the Command.-in-Chief. But the skill or valor of such a field was no longer in request, and it was to his fidel. probity, and diligence in other affairs that Oliver direct. John Milton to certify. Winthrop II. 241. Hutch. I. 111. JOHN, Charlestown; to his w. Joanna wh. bore him Mary, 6 Aug. 1659, d. 13 Nov. foll., was giv. admin. of his est. 2 Apr. 1663, and she m. 29 Oct. foll. Richard Holly.

JOHN, Braintree 1673, was a soldier in Philip's war with Capt. Turner, in Apr. 1676, on Conn. riv. sett. at Hatfield, m. soon after, Mary, wid. of Thomas Meakins, jr. (wh. had been k. by the Ind. the yr. bef.) had Jonathan, b. 1677; and John, 1678; perhaps rem. from. H. JOSHUA, Kittery, perhaps s. of Dennis of the same, by w.

RICHARD of Ipswich, d. 3 Nov. 1702, but I kn. nothing more of him, exc. that in 1664 (three yrs. bef. he was m.), he was 27 yrs. old, yet from seeing him among proprs. of Salem or Marblehead 1674, had w. Mary, I venture to guess that he was a gr.s. of Emanuel. THEOPHILUS, Salem 1642, had gr. of ld. 29 Nov. of that yr. and s. Theophilus, bapt. 13 Mar. 1642; Ann, or Hannah, 8 Sept. 1644; and Benjamin, 17 Jan. 1647; in the first two instances the ch. are noted as of our sis. D. and in the last as of Ellen D. He is call. the fisherman, and nothing, more is ascert. He was of Marblehead part of the town, perhaps br. of Richard or of Malcolm, and may have had other ch. His w. may have come from some other town. WILLIAM, Boston, freem. 1690.
