JOHN, Dorchester, or Boston, came in the fleet with Winthrop prob. as we find his req. 19 Oct. 1630 to be made freem. yet his adm. is not found, and he rem. from our col. perhaps as a purch. of Taunton 1639 [Baylies, I. 286], and not long after to Windsor, and there, by a cartwheel running over him, was k. 17 Aug. 1659, leav. s. Jacob and Job, bef. ment. and John, beside one, if not more, d.

Jane, wid. of William Berry, was selectman 1691, but his d. is not kn. His d. Jane m. 15 Dec. 1673, William Wallace. ROBERT, Exeter, without any exact date, came from Devonsh. where he was b. 1580, rem. to Hampton, in 1654 was selectman, d. 14 Jan. 1668. His will of 5 May 1663, pro. 11 Apr. 1668, names only s. Nathaniel and Abraham, bef. ment. wh. prob. he had brot. from Eng. men of full age, and d. Susanna with her maiden name, the two ds. of Nathaniel by names, and Susanna, Mary, Elizabeth and Hannah, the ch. of Abraham.

His w. d. 8 June 1742, aged 64. *SAMUEL, Fairfield 1650, rep. [[vol. 2, p. 71]] 1662, rem. to East Chester 1665, had John, Samuel, and Joseph, and four ds. all nam. beside w.

I think he m. 9 Mar. 1681, Mellicent, wid. of John Carver, d. of William Ford. Perhaps he was of Dorchester 1640. WILLIAM, Weymouth, s. of Thomas, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. May 1687; Abigail, 4 Apr. 1689; James, 7 May 1691; and William, 20 July 1695. A wid. Joan D. was adm. of the ch. of Boston 3 Aug. 1634, the same day with Gov. Bellingham and his w. but of her I kn. no more.
DRAKELEY, ROBERT, Woodbury, s. of Thomas, the first of the same, m. 4 July 1751, says Cothren, Mary Warner, whose f. is not ment. and he d. 1 July 1784.

May 1697; Thomas, May 1704; Robert, July 1709; Mary, July 1709; and William, July 1714, wh. d. unm. 11 July 1769; and d. 5 Apr. 1734, aged 77. He was, perhaps, b. in Eng. for the surname is not early heard of in our country; and his wid. d. 4 Dec. 1762. THOMAS, Woodbury, eldest s. of the preced. m. Eunice Hickok, d. prob. of Joseph, had, as Cothren tells, Lydia, b. 12 Jan. 1730; Mercy, 20 May 1733; Comfort, 5 Apr. 1737; Eunice, 17 July 1739; Samuel, 18 May 1745; and Beatrice, if such be the decent name, giv. prob. from the rec. Betteras, by Cothren, 18 Nov. 1749; and he liv. to 1789.
DRAPER, JAMES, Dedham 1683, may be the same wh. was a propr. of Lancaster 1654, and wh. was of Roxbury, freem. 1690, and d. 13 July 1697, aged a. 73, says the inscript. on gr.stone wh. in Geneal. Reg. VII. 331 has erron. date. JAMES, Roxbury, perhaps s. of the preced. had Patience, b. 17 Aug. 1668; Jonathan, 10 Mar. 1670; his w. prob. d. or ano. James m. 18 Feb. 1681, Abigail Whiting, had Abigail, b. 29 Dec. 1681; perhaps Nathaniel, 2 Apr. 1684; Eunice, 5 Jan. 1689; and Ebenezer, 27 Apr. 1698; d. in 44th yr. 30 Apr. 1698. His wid. d. 25 Oct. 1721. Patience m. 13 Mar. 1689, or 90, Ebenezer Cass. JAMES, Roxbury, by w. Elizabeth had William, b. 15 May 1686.

NATHANIEL, Damaris [[vol. 2, p. 72]] cove 1651. NICHOLAS, Salem 1637. RICHARD, Boston, freem. 1690. ROGER, Concord, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, had Adam, and Lydia; the latter b. 11 Nov. 1641, m. John Law. In the custom ho. rec. sent from Ipswich to London of passeng. in the Francis, thence to Boston 1634, appears as one with the strange name, Clear Drap, aged 30, of wh. we may safely judge the surname abbreviat. for Draper, but the name of bapt. is beyond conject. Of this name six had been, in 1834, gr. at Harv. and four at the other N. E. coll.
DRAWWATER, THOMAS, New Haven 1668, fin. for drinking unduly.
DRAYTON, HENRY, Marshfield, able to bear arms 1643. JOHN, Maine 1642. Farmer.

Endicott, to Jemima, d. of John Clark, had Elizabeth b. 22 July 1660. ROSEMUND, Roxbury, if my copy from the rec. be trustworthy, m. 18 Feb. 1678, Mary Druce, d. of Vincent, had Rosemond, a s. bapt. at Roxbury, 12 Jan. 1679, tho. in his Hist. of Newton, Jackson, 268, perverts the name from the gr.st. to Erasanan. He enlarges our knowledge of three other ch. Jonathan d. 1700, aged 19; Ebenezer d. 1715, aged 25; and Abigail 1717, aged 27. He says the eldest b. d. 1700, and their mo. d. 1719, in her 70th yr.
THOMAS, Dover, perhaps s. or br. of William, in that part on Oyster riv. now Durham, had a garris. ho. in 1694, where he was k. by the Ind. after surrender, and a s. of 9 yrs. was k. in a frightful way. Possib. [[vol. 2, p. 73]] this may have been the tragedy of Francis. Tradit. raises many doubts. Thomas, prob. ano. s. with a young w. were tak. at same time and car. to Canada. Belkn. I. 138. 141. WILLIAM, Dover 1648, d. a. 1669, leav. w. Elizabeth wh. m. 20 July 1671, William Follet. He had Francis, b. 1648; John, 1651; perhaps James, and William. Early in the eighteenth centu. there were at Newton, Jonathan, Ebenezer, and one or more others of this name, all young, but I have not learn. their derivat.
DRINKER, EDWARD, Charlestown, s. of Philip, b. in Eng. came with his f. was a potter, constable 1652, rem. to Boston, and was one of the found. of the first Bapt. ch. in Boston 1663, yet a lieut. in Philip's war, of Capt Turner's comp. tho. in his Hist. of the Baptists, Backus shows that the bigotry of the day refus. him, as unworthy of such command in the first yr. of the war. He preach. in 1678 to the humble congregat. in Boston, and d. 1700. His w. Hannah d. 14 May 1693; and he m. 6 Mar. foll. Mary Emmons. In his will, made 1696, names no ch. but ment. w. Mary, br. John, and niece Mary, w. of Benjamin Emmons; to the two former leav. est. for life, and remainder to niece. John, Charlestown, br. of the preced. b. in Eng. came with his f. by w.

Perhaps he was gr.f. of that John, sometimes call. Edward, b. in a log cabin on what is now Walnut str. corner of Second, Philadelphia, 24 Dec. 1680, some mos. bef. Penn's charter, and d. 17, or as the ch. rec. says 18 Nov. 1782, of course, allow. for change of style, 101 yrs. 10 mos. and 14 or 15 days old, whose age is by Dr. Rush and others fondly stretch. to 103. He had eighteen ch. by first w. and none by three other ws. sometimes sat at his table with 14 ch. says tradit. and not long bef. his d. heard of one of his gr.ch. hav. a gr.ch. See Watson's Ann. of Philad.
PHILIP, Charlestown 1635, came in the Abigail that yr. aged 39, with w. Elizabeth 32; Edward, 13; and John, 8; freem. 17 May 1637, kept the first ferry over Mistick 1640, d. 23 June 1647, in his will, two days bef. makes ment. of no other relat. than w. and those two s.

DROWNE, LEONARD, Kittery, shipwright, m. Elizabeth Abbot, perhaps d. of Richard of Portsmouth, had Solomon, b. 23 Jan. 1682; Samuel, Simeon, Shem, Susanna, wh. m. as is said, John Johnson of Boston, and Mary, wh. m. as is said, 24 Apr. 1712, James Kettle of Charlestown. Little is to be glean. exact. on priv. life of most in that country in that age, when liable to be driv. from his home, as was D. for yrs. after being one of the found. of the first Bapt. ch. in Maine 1682. He had practis. his trade at Boston a doz. yrs. when his w. d. 1704; and by sec. w. had no ch. He d. 31 Oct. 1729, aged 83. See Greenleaf, 241. SHEM, Boston, s. of Leonard of the same, had, it is erron. said, m. a d. of Richard Russell, nam. Catharine, as is further said, and thro. her deriv. title to the gr. of Eastern lds. made to Aldworth and Elbridge from Sir F. Gorges bef. Boston was sett. See Drake, 615, wh. got his inform. through poor source, in this matter. His w. was d. of Timothy Clark, in his will well provid. for. He d. 13 Jan. 1774; and had d. Sarah, wh. m. Rev.

He d. 9 Oct. 1730, and his wid. (whose name of bapt. or fam. we see not) d. 26 July 1744. DRUCE, or DRUSE, John, Cambridge vill. now Newton, s. of Vincent, had by w. Mary, bapt. at Roxbury, 13 Sept. 1674, John (b. 25 Feb. 1669), and Mary, and Hannah, a fortnight later; was mort. wound. 1 July 1675 in Capt. Prentice's troop on the morning march from Rehoboth to Swanzey, brot. home, and d. next day. Apostle Eliot in ch. rec. writes, "he acquit. hims. valiant." His nuncup. will, pro. by oath of Joseph Dudley, 16 Aug. foll. is in our Vol. VI. RICHARD, Boston, by w. Jane had William, b. 1 May 1660.
VINCENT, Hingham 1637, freem. 1645, as Mr. Paige conject. when the name is writ. Vincent Ruth, as perhaps his utterance was indistinct, and the clk. wh. enrol. judg. by sound. I concur in this astute conject. for two reasons; (beside the strangeness of such a surname) Vincent is exceeding. rare as bapt. name;--and the next above and below him in the Rec. list, was a Hingham man; rem. bef. 1652 to Cambridge, liv. on S. side of the riv. now Newton, had sh. in the div. for Cambridge people of Shawsheen lds. and in that rec. his name is Druse, as also in Roxbury rec. His ch. were Vincent; John, [[vol. 2, p. 75]] bef. ment.; Mary, wh. m. 18 Feb. 1678, Rosamond Drew; and in his will of 29 Nov. 1677, he provides for the ch. of s.

DRUMER, SAMUEL, Lynn, d. 30 Nov. 1676, as Felt, in Geneal. Reg. V. 96, shows; but his name was not bef. ever heard, I think. DRUMMOND, John, Boston, m. 27 Nov. 1661, wid. Lydia Hallet; but any thing more is not kn.
DRURY, GEORGE, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 19. || HUGH, Boston 1640, carpenter, freem. 1654, constable 1655 and 6, ar. co. 1659, liv. some yrs. at Sudbury, there by w.

DUDY, MOSES, found by Mr. Babson at Gloucester, as serv. of Robert Elwell, press. into milit. serv. in Philip╒s war, 1676, outliv. it, and had gr. of ld. in that town.
DUDLEY, BYLEY, Exeter, s. of the first Samuel, m. 25 Oct. 1682, Elizabeth Gilman, d. of Moses, had no ch. and d. 1728. FRANCIS, Concord, m. 26 Oct. 1665, Sarah Wheeler, had Mary, Joseph, Samuel, Sarah, John, and Francis. HUGH, Springfield, in the employm. of William Pynchon, m. 1656, Mary, d. perhaps of wid. Elizabeth Copley, sold out his prop. and rem. JAMES, Exeter, s. of the first Samuel, merch. m. Elizabeth Leavitt, d. of Samuel, and d. 14 Nov. 1720. His wid. m. 8 Oct. 1724, Robert Briscoe; and next, 22 Sept. 1730, Rev. John Odlin, both of Exeter. JOHN, Charlestown 1658, was a witness 30 Mar. 1671, then call. 55 yrs. old. He may have m. Hannah, d. of John Poulter, and as Shattuck says, liv. at Concord, yet the age would be discord. with such suppos. but cannot be the man wh. was at Guilford 1673, m. that yr. Martha French, had John, b. 1675; Mary, 14 May 1678; Nathaniel, 10 Feb. 1680; Ebenezer, 27 Feb. 1682; Mercy, 1684; Jonathan, 1686; Elizabeth 1 Oct. 1688; and Naomi, Oct. 1690, in wh. yr. he d. all the ch. then liv.

Court; after being long impris. here, on the Revo. went in Feb. 1690 to Eng. but came back the same yr. with commiss. as Ch. Just. of Mass. and was aft. Dep. Gov. of the Isle of Wight under Lord Cutts, as Hutch. II. 86 shows, 8 yrs. and came home 1702, with commiss. as Gov. wh. place he serv. until Nov. 1715, d. 2 Apr. 1720. Of the charact. of so disting. a politician the lineaments will borrow colors from the artist's pencil; yet that of Hutch. II. 213, 214, shows an honorab. impartiality, especially when we reflect how he must have kn. the envenom. hatred of his relat. the Mathers. Something darker is the portrait in Bancroft, III. 100, but he may have mistak. the secret feeling of Dudley's heart, and fell into wonderful error, when he closed the relation with that sad retribut. "His grave is among strangers," for all Roxbury could testify that his final resting place is close to that of his f. and that he was bur. in his native town, where he passed the last eighteen yrs. of his life. In later editions the historian struck out that clause of malediction. His will of 27 Oct. 1719, ment. only two s. and bequeathes "his body to be bur. with his f." His w. Rebecca, d. of Edward Tyng, had Thomas, b. 26 Feb. 1670, bapt. next day, H. C. 1685, d. young; Edward, 4 Sept. 1671; Joseph, 8, bapt. 9 Nov. 1673; Paul, 3, bapt. 5 Sept. 1675, H.

S. m. 15 Sept. 1703, Lucy Wainwright), and d. 21 Jan. 1751; Samuel, 7 Sept. 1677; John, 28 Feb. bapt. 2 Mar. 1679; Rebecca, 16, bapt. 22 May 1681, m. 15 Sept. 1702, Samuel Sewall; Catharine, 7 Jan., 1683, d. same day; Ann, 27, bapt. 31 Aug. 1684, m. 16 Dec. 1707, John Winthrop; William, 20, bapt. 24 Oct. 1686, H.

One of the most curious combinat. in N. E. Hist. is detail. in his corresp. with Incr. and Cotton Mather, 1708, for wh. see 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. III. 126-137. Both of the rev. casuists display much shrewdness and more malignity.

Cam bridge, where he had his degrees 1626, and 1630, but certain. he came not to our country bef. 1636, if at all; yet that he did come, may be argu. from the strange add. of sen. to the name of the f. at his elect. as Dep.
