EARLE, FRANCIS, a soldier, Dec. 1675, in Moseley's camp. at the gr. Narraganset swamp fight. JOHN, Northampton 1662, had come to Boston 1656, aged 17, in the Speedwell from London, at N. liv. a. 15 yrs. but rem. to unkn. place, after hav. there m. 24 Mar. 1663, Mary. d. of the first John Webb of the same, and had Noah, John, and three ds. of wh. Mary, k. by the Ind. 14 Mar. 1676, was, perhaps, one. JOHN, Boston 1688, may have been s. of the preced. m. 5 Apr. 1689, Mary, d. of George Lawrence of Watertown, had Mary, b. 9 Jan. bapt. 22 June 1690; and he prob. d. soon, and his wid. m. 27 Dec. 1704, Michael Flagg. *RALPH, Rhode Isl. 1638, among freem. 1655, had been adm. an inhab. of the June 1639, perhaps had s. Ralph; and William; ds. Mary, wh. m. William Corey; Martha, wh. m. William Wood; and Sarah, wh. m. Thomas Cornell. He had been rep. 1650. RALPH, Dartmouth, eldest s. of the preced. rem. from. R. I. in conseq. of a gift to him of half a sh. in Coaxit and Acushnet, 25 Oct. 1659, by Francis Sprague of Duxbury, call. him s.-in-law. His w. was Dorcas, and ch. were John, William, Ralph, Joseph, and perhaps that Hannah, wh. m. 27 Aug. 1719, William Brown. He was propr. after mid. life at Dartmouth, and own. among the opposite islands, the interesting Cuttyhunk, for full value of wh. see Belknap╒s Amer. Biogr. II. 114. He was liv. prob. in 1686, and a Ralph jr. at the same time in the same town, s. of William. 

ROBERT, Boston 1679, kept the prison 1681, and sev. yrs. after, d. 1698. ROBERT, Newport, had come in the Hercules, I suppose, 1634, to some part of Mass. was b. 1606, it was said, yet had w. in 1699 liv. at age of 105, however unlikely that she was so many yrs. older; but I see reason to believe, that at Newport the earliest kn. of that name was b. 1706, and that Farmer was wrong. There were Roger [[vol. 2, p. 92]] and Samuel at Boston 1695, of wh. the latter d. 1706, aged 34. THOMAS, Newport, br. perhaps, of Ralph the first. *WILLIAM, Dartmouth 1673, s. of the first Ralph, b. a. 1660; Thomas; and John; prob. all at Portsmouth, R. I. and by first w.

He may be the man whose d. in 94th yr. Sewall, wh. calls him f. puts 17, Mar. 1687. His last ch. was Rebecca, 22 July 1656. WILLIAM, Milford 1639, had Solomon, bapt. 1643, wh. prob. d. young. In 1676 he had 2d w. Mary, wid. of Robert Plum, and d. 1681, without ch. His wid. d. 1708.

EASTMAN, BENJAMIN, Salisbury, s. of Roger of the same, m. 5 Apr. 1678, Ann, d. of Edmund Pitts, wid. of Samuel Joy, had Benjamin, b. 8 Feb. 1679; Edmund, 20 Jan. 1681; Jeremiah, 18 Feb. 1683, H. C. 1703; and Joseph, 29 Mar. 1685; was freem. 1690; and his w. d. 13 Dec. 1698. *JOHN, Salisbury, eldest s. of Roger, m. 7 Oct. 1665, Hannah, d. prob. of William Healey of Cambridge, but no acco. of ch. is found, and she d. early. He next m. 5 Nov. 1670, Mary Boynton, d. of William, had Hannah, b. 23 Jan. 1673, d. next mo.; John, 24 Aug. 1675; Zechariah, 24 Oct. 1679; Roger, 26 Feb. 1683; Elizabeth 26 Sept. 1680; Thomas, 14 Feb. 1688, d. at 3 yrs.; and perhaps had sec. Thomas in 1691; and Joseph, 23 June 1692; was a capt. rep. 1691. JOSEPH, Suffield, br. of the preced. m. Mary, only surv. d. of Hon. Peter Tilton of Hadley, had Joseph, b. 1683; Mary, 1684, d. young; and Peter, 1686; and d. 4 Apr. 1692. His wid. m. the next yr. James Guernsey.

Tilton's est. and by eleven ch. a gr. line of descend. 

JOSEPH, Salisbury, took o. of fidel. 21 Dec. 1677 at the same time with Benjamin, was the man, I guess, of Suffield. NATHANIEL, Salisbury, br. of the preced. m. 30 Apr. 1672, Elizabeth Haddon, perhaps d. of Jared of the same, had Sarah, b. 11 Nov. 1674; Jemima. 25 Aug.1677; Nathaniel. Mar. 1679: Hannah. 24 Apr. [[vol. 2, p. 93]] 1687; and Mary, 29 Mar. 1690; was freem. 1690. PHILIP, Haverhill, br. of the preced. tak. by the Ind. in 1676, redeem. the same yr. m. 22 Aug. 1678, Mary, d. of Robert Morss of Newbury, or, I think, wid. of anthony Morse, the younger, had Ebenezer, b. 10 Jan. 1680; and prob. others. He had bef. 1695 rem. to the planta. call. New Roxbury, now Woodstock, in Conn. then thot. in Mass. 

ROGER, Salisbury, an orig. propr. ancest. it is believ. of all of the name in our land, d. 16 Dec. 1694, aet. 83; and his wid. Sarah d. 11 Mar. 1698.

Sarah m. 13 June 1678, Joseph French jr. and next, 4 Aug. 1684, Solomon Shepherd, by both had ch. and d. a wid. of gr. age 1 Dec. 1748. That he came from Southampton 1638, on board the Confidence, in comp. with many wh. sat down at Salisbury, and neighb. towns, as presum. from a paper supplied by Henry Stephens of London, in Geneal. Reg. II. 108-10, after some correct. of errors found by H. G. Somerby, giv. in Geneal. Reg. V. 440, would be rec. as prob. in spite of the name being in the latter chang. to Robert, and the other circumst. of his being call. serv. 15 yrs. sold, for the numeral should be 25, and the designat. may well seem only a deception to get clear from the orders in counc. to embarrass emigrat. 

SAMUEL, Salisbury, s. of the preced. m. 1686, Elizabeth Severance, or Screven, had Ruth, b. B Mar. 1688; Elizabeth 1 Dec. 1689; Mary, 4 Jan. 1692; Sarah, 3 Apr. 1694; Samuel, 5 Jan. 1696; Joseph, 6 Jan. 1698; d Jane, 10 June 1700; was freem. 1690.

He d. 1 Apr. 1733; Timothy, his s. d. 25 Mar. preced. leav. three ds. only; so that the fam. name in this branch was extinct; William d. at 21 yrs.; Lydia d. unm. 1746; and Sarah m. 1716, William Montague. Often this is spell. as was the early sound, Easman. See geneal. Reg. VI. 101, 2, and 3. Twenty-one of this name had been gr. in 1834, at the other N. E. coll. but none at Harv.

EASTON, ń JOHN, Newport, s. of the first Nicholas of the same, by him brot. from Eng,. was freem. bef. 1655, Dept. Gov. 1666, and Gov. of the Col. 5 yrs. 1690-4, d. 12 Dec. 1705, aet. 81.

Assist. A sec. w. Christian, wid. of Thomas Beecher, wh. had been wid. of Thomas Copper of London, bef. Beecher brot. her, in 1630, to Charlestown, he m. early in 1638, and she prob. was mo. of sev. of his ch. but as she liv. to 20 Feb. 1665, we may presume that by third w. m. 2 Mar. 1671, Ann Clayton, he had no issue. His ch. were John, b. 1621; and perhaps, Daniel; certain. Peter, bef. com. from Eng. but after had Joshua; Nicholas; Mary, wh. m. Weston Clark; Patience; Elizabeth; and Waite, wh. m. John Carr.

EASTY, or ESTY, ISAAC, Topsfield 1661, perhaps s. of Jeffry, freem. 1673. The name of Mary E. his w. d. of William Town, tried 9, execut. [[vol. 2, p. 95]] as a witch 22 Sept. 1692, must be held in honor, forever, for in her petn. to Sir William Phips, the Gov. she begg. not for her own life, wh. she kn. must be vain, but only "that no more innocent blood may be shed." JEFFRY, Salem 1637, had then a gr. of ld.
