ENGLE, BERNARD, Boston 1664, husbandman. JAMES, Boston 1662, mariner. Perhaps it has bec. Inglee.

ENGLISH, or ENGLES, CLEMENT, Salem, m. 27 Aug,. 1667, Mary, d. of Richard Waters, had Mary, b. 18 Feb. 1669; Elizabeth 19 Feb. 1671; Joseph, 12 Mar. 1673; Benjamin, 19 Oct. 1676; Abigail, 6 Dec. 1680, d. at 17 yrs.; and Clement, posthum. 7 Mar. 1683. The f. d. 23 Dec. bef. JAMES, Boston, m. 7 Jan. 1658, perhaps as sec. w. Joanna, d. of John Farnum, wh. was not 14 yrs. old. We kn. too little of him to affirm or deny that he was d. 14 Mar. 1698; freem. 1691; or that he may be the man in last parag. 

MAUDETT, Boston, by w. Jane had [[vol. 2, p. 124]] Hannah, b. 2 Mar. 1639, bapt. 6 Sept. 1640, had join. the ch. one day bef.; Mary, Nov. 1644. Sometimes his name is Maded Inglyss, or Engles; and in Geneal. Reg. V. 398, 468, was transmut. to Jugs. His will of Nov. 1684 is sign. Madett Engs. That doc. makes excor. his s. Samuel, names d.-in-law Mary, and gr.ch. Madet, Samuel, Nathaniel, and Mary. Perhaps that d.-in-law Mary, was the wid. Engs, wh. m. 14 Dec. 1688, Joshua Lee. *PHILIP, Salem, s. of John of the Isle of Jersey, there bapt. 30 June 1651, a merch. m. 1 Sept. 1675, Mary, d. of Richard Hollingworth, suffer. very much in the blind ferocity against witchcraft. His w. was the greater sufferer, and liv. very few yrs. after escape. This was manag. with equal skill and firmness by Rev. Joshua Moody, then min. with Willard, at the O. S. ch. in Boston. See the admirable note in Eliot's Biogr. Dict. tit. Moody. By Mary he had seven ch., Philip, b. 4 Sept. 1684; William, 23 May 1679, d. young; Mary, 21 Feb. 1677; and Susanna, 5 July 1683; Names of the rest are unkn. and William, again, 7 Apr. 1690, wh. d. bef. his f.

He reckon. his damage by the persec. at £1500, and was allow. a. 20 yrs. later £300. His f. was prob. a Huguenot, and his own name, at bapt. was Philippe L╒Anglois, but he was brot. to the font by Sir Philip Carteret. To an excel. tract in Hist. Coll. of the Essex Inst. may be refer. all further inq. The writer corrects Dr. Bentley╒s date for his d. wh. was 1736, aged 86, but, the two last yrs. of his life, his mind was infirm. 

THOMAS, Plymouth, one of the passeng. in the Mayflower 1620, d. in the gen. sickness early next spring, leav. no n. nor ch. He had been a sailor, says Bradford, hired by the pilgrims. *WILLIAM, Ipswich 1638, shoemaker, freem. 21 Sept. 1642, rep. 1646 and 7, rem. to Hampton 1639, for short time, but went back to I. may be the same wh. was adm. at Boston 1652, and made a constable 1656; with w. Sarah, join. our first ch. on 15 Mar. 1663.

EVELETH, ISAAC, Gloucester, s. of Sylvester, m. 13 Nov. 1677, Abigail, d. of John Coit, had Isaac, b. 21 Jan. 1680; and Hannah, 9 May 1681; beside Job; and was freem. 1684. His wid. m. sec.

JOHN, Ipswich, eldest s. of Joseph, min. of Manchester, ord. 1 Oct. 1693, dism. 1695; in five yrs. more was sett. at Stow, but again dism. 1717; two yrs. after preach. at Arundel and Biddeford until 1729, perhaps as Episc. Miss. d. at Kittery 1 Aug. 1734, aged 65. He m. at Charlestown, then being sch.master, 2 Dec. 692, Mary, d. of Francis Bowman of Cambridge, had Joseph, wh. 27 Oct. 1714, aged a. 18, bur. at Cambridge, prob. a stud. at the Coll. His w. d. bef. 1698. JOSEPH, Gloucester, s. of Sylvester, m. 1 Jan. 1668, Mary, d. prob. of Edward Bragg, had John, b. 25 Jan. 1670, H. C. 1689; Elizabeth 17 Dec. 1671; 31 May 1674; Isaac, 11 Oct. 1676; Edward, 25 July 1679; Moses, 13 Feb. 1682; Mary, 13 Nov. 1683; and Hannah, 1 Oct. 1685. He enjoy. great length of life, I believe; and beside the serv. to his country in hav. so many ch. he merits high reward as one of that noble jury, wh. had yield. to the monstrous dictat. of the Ct. in the witchcraft cases 1692, at Salem, every man of them declar. that none of them wd. "do such things again on such grounds for the whole world." 

SYLVESTER, Gloucester, had been a baker at Boston 1642, at G. was selectman 1647, 9, and 51; had w. Susanna wh. d. 7 Sept. 1659, or, as report is, 14 Sept. 1669, by her had Susanna, wh. m. 31 Dec. 1656, James Stevens; Isaac; Joseph, bapt. 26 Mar. 1643, a. 1 yr. and 3/4 old; and Hannah, 8 Oct. foll. both at B. He m. 6 Sept. 1672, Bridget, prob. wid. of first Elias Parkman; his d. Mary In. 21 May 1655, Thomas Millet. At Gloucester a tradit. prevails, that Joseph d. 45, aged 105, wh. partly conflicts with, partly confirms, that one about John; and the Supplem. to the Boston Evening Post of 16 Dec. 1745, [[vol. 2, p. 130]]

cont. this obit. notice: "On the 2d inst. d. at Ipswich, Mr. Joseph Eveleth in the hundred and seventh yr. of his age--left sev. ch. of a great age, one of wh. is upwards of 70 yrs. old." Reasonab. therefore, may we believe that John, or Joseph, ran something over a century.

EVERDEN, ANTHONY, Providence, took the o. of alleg. May 1666. RICHARD, Providence, sw. alleg. June 1668. THOMAS, Salem 1682, a Quaker preach. WALTER, from Kent, an aged man, employ. in manuf. of gunpowder, was in Mass. Aug. 1674. Hutch. Coll. 468.

EVERED, ANDREW, York, made freem. of Mass. 1652, was liv. 1680, to sw. alleg. to the k. Sometimes it is Everest. *JOHN, with a perpetual alias Webb, for surname, Boston, from Marlborough in Wilts, emb. in the James at Southampton Apr. 1635, arr. 3 June, had large est. from 1656, as also at Chelmsford, where he was capt. and rep. 1663, 4, and 5, spent the last 5 or 6 yrs. of life in that part afterwards Dracut, and d. 16 Oct. 1668. His will of 10 Feb. 1666, bestows £50 on ch. of Boston, names w. Mary, six serv. his niece Rebecca, w. of John Arsleby of Andover, and her brs. John, Robert, Thomas, Peter, and Nathaniel Eayres, or Ayres, of Haverhill, and the eldest s. of John Bishop of Nantucket, beside cous. or neph. James Breedane, and br. William Dinsdale of Boston, and Rev. John Fiske, wh. with Thomas Hincksman he made overseers of this will, from all wh. it may be presum. he left no descend. STEPHEN, perhaps br. of the preced. hav. the same alias, and com. in the same sh. with him. No more is kn. of him. It may be unavailing to ask why this fam. is describ. in all the rec. by a double surname, as was the progen. of famous Oliver Cromwell, by the precession of Williams. Webb was a com. name in Wilts, and in many other parts of Eng. WILLIAM, Charlestown, without the alias, m. 30 Jan. 1659, Sarah Fillebrown.

EVERELL. See Everill.

EVEREST, ISAAC, Guilford, by w. Joanna had John; Isaac, b. 1 May 1677; Benjamin; and Lydia; d. 1697, prob. for his inv. of good est. is of 23 Jan. in that yr. JOB, Guilford, br. of the preced. d. 1684, unm. gave all his est. to Isaac.

His wid. Elizabeth d. June 1715; but in one draft of a fam. geneal. that has been subm. to my inspect. the dates of d. for h. and w. are exchang. 

RICHARD, Dedham, whose name is uniform. giv. Everard, had, I presume, liv. at Watertown, there, prob. by w. Mary, had John, rem. a. 1636 or 7, had Mary, b. 28 Sept. 1638, says the rec. tho. it seems to me prob. that it was 1637; Samuel, 31 Mar. 1639, tho. the rec. of the county has, absurdly, 31 Sept. as the town rec. must be false, if it has Mary correct; Sarah, 14 Mar. 1641, d. 1 Apr. foll.; and James, 14 Mar. 1643, d. soon, as did also his mo. He m. 29 June 1643, at Springfield, where he had some est. Mary Winch, wh. came, At the age of 15, with Rowland Stebbins 1634, in the Francis, from Ipswich; had Sarah, again, b. 12 Apr. 1644; Abigail, 19 Nov. 1647; Israel, 14 July 1601; Ruth, 14 Jan. 1654; and Jedediah, 11 July 1656.

I. had d. in 1666, or earlier, for in that yr. Abraham Smith was appoint. admor. of his est. in trust for his childr. These ch. are not nam. Thompson, in 1656, calls him Evert; yet in 1686 he names at Jamaica, John Everit, perhaps one of them. SAMUEL, Dedham, s. of first Richard, m. 28 May 1669, Mary, d. of Robert Pepper, had Judith, b. 10 Feb. 1670, d. soon; Judith, again, 12 Mar. 1672; Samuel, 7 Oct. 1681; Isaac, 25 May 1685; Mary, 24 May 1688; and Benjamin, 20 Mar. 1693; was freem. 1690; and d. 26 June 1718. WILLIAM, Kittery 1640, whose name may be Averitt, under govern. by Gorges patent, allow. to keep an ordinary 1649, was adm. freem. of Mass. 1652, when, perhaps, he was of Dover, d. at sea 1674. Ten of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at H. C. and ten at the other N. E. coll.

EVERILL, ABIEL, Boston, m. 6 July 1655, Elizabeth d. of Lieut. William Phillips, had James, b. 4 Apr. 1656; and d. early, for his wid. m. 1 Apr. 1660, prob. as sec. w. John Alden, jr.

William Blanchard, but after his d. m. George Manning; was in good esteem, often one of the selectmen, d. [[vol. 2, p. 132]] near the end of 1682 or beg. of 1683, for his will, made in Dec. was pro. in Feb. foll. His d. Elizabeth m. a Grant. Often the name appears Everell.

EVERTON, JOSEPH, Charlestown, s. of William of the same, by w. Catharine had Catharine, bapt. 22 Oct. 1699; and Joseph, 14 Sept. 701. SAMUEL, Charlestown, br. of the preced. by w.

His wid. m. 10 Sept. 1691, Thomas Bligh of Boston.

EWE, JOHN, Hartford, by misadvent. k. Thomas Scott, 6 Nov. 1643, f. and was fin. ten pounds to the wid. and five to the col.

EWELL, GERSHOM, Scituate, s. of Henry, had John. HENRY, Scituate, came from Sandwich, Kent, 1635, in the Hercules, shoemaker, unit. with the ch. 3 Apr. 1636, was a soldier in the Pequot war 1637, m. 23 Nov. 1638, Sarah, d. of Anthony Annable, rem. to Barnstable, where his eldest s. John was bapt. 8 Mar. 1640; Ebenezer, 12 Feb. 1643; Sarah, 14 Sept. 1645; and came back 1647, had at S. Hannah, b. 22 June 1649; Gershom, 14 Nov. 1650; d. Abia, 27 Sept. 1653; Ichabod, June 1639; and Deborah, 4 June 1663. His ho. was burn. in 1676 by the Ind. His will of 1681 names the bef. ment. exc. John and Abia, adds other ch. Eunice, and ment. w. Sarah, and d. Sarah, w. of John Northey. JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. m. Mary, d. of Richard Goodale, but d. 31 July 1686 at Newbury, leav. d. Mary. ICHABOD, Scituate, s. of Henry, cultiv. est. of his f. but his sons rem. to Marshfield, says Deane. JOSEPH, Ipswich, freem. 1683. RICHARD, Springfield 1668.

EWER, HENRY, Sandwich 1637. JOHN, Barnstable, d. 1652. THOMAS, Charlestown, came in the James from London 1635, aged 40; with w. Sarah, d. of William Larned, 28; and ch. Elizabeth 4; and Thomas, l had elder ch. perhaps John, certain. Sarah, wh. m. 18 June 1645, Thomas Blossom the sec. of Plymouth; unit. with the ch. Jan. 1636, as had his w. the mo. bef. freem. 3 Mar. 1636; d. 1638; and his wid. m. 11 Dec. 1639, Thomas Lothrop of Barnstable, where his d. Elizabeth was bur 9 Apr. 1641. Perhaps he was the man against wh. charge for language against the king, in 1637, was brot. by Lord Ley, so easily got rid of by Gov. Winthrop I. 234; but he might soon after have seem. in greater danger for error in his relig. opin. as he was one of the friends of Wheelwright. Yet his discretion in recant. is observ. THOMAS, Sandwich, of wh. I learn nothing but what his wid. Hannah pro. his inv. 31 May 1667.

[[vol. 2, p. 133]] THOMAS, Barnstable, perhaps s. of first Thomas, had by first w. Thomas, b. Dec. 1673; and prob. mo. and ch. d. soon. He m. Oct. 1681, sec. w. Elizabeth Lovell, wh. d. 20 Mar. 1712, had Thomas, b. Jan. 1686, bapt. 26 July 1691; Shubael, 1630; John, Feb. 1692; Mehitable, Oct. 1694, d. next mo.; Nathaniel, Nov. 1695; Jonathan, d. Nov. 1696; Hezekiah, 1697; and Thankful, Oct. bapt. 2 Nov. 1701; beside Sarah, and Elizabeth

EWILL, JOHN, Newbury 1669, d. 31 July 1686. Perhaps it is sometimes Ewins, and he may have been s. of that William wh. in 1666 was aged 46, as Coffin says in Geneal. Rev. VI. 253.

EWINGTON, THOMAS, Lynn 1642, is by me thot. to be Thomas Euington, freem. of R. I. 1655.

EWSTEAD, RICHARD, Salem 1629, came in the fleet with Higginson.

EXELL, or EXILE, RICHARD, Springfield 1646, m. 4 June 1651, Hannah, wid. of Thomas Reeves, had Mary, b. 1 Mar. 1653; John, 4 Nov. 1657; and Abigail, 20 May 1660; suffer. in Philip's war, and rem. 1676, but whither is unkn. yet in 1681 or 2 he sent to Boston some whale oil to pay a debt he owed Pynchon, so that prob. either Long Isl. or Rhode Isl. bec. his home. Mary m. 30 Dec. 1675, Henry Rogers.

EYER, JOHN, NATHANIEL, SAMUEL, Haverhill or Salisbury. See Ayer.

EYNSWORTH, one way of spell. Ainsworth, wh. see.

EYMANS, EDWARD, Haverhill, in 1663 was 40 years of age, as Coffin found, and no other finding has reach. me.

EYRE, EIRE, often EYERS, *JOHN, Boston, youngest s. of Simon the first m. 20 May 1680, Catharine, d. of Thomas Brattle, had, beside five ch. wh. d. young, Catharine, b. 20 July 1694; Bethia, 24 July 1695; and John, 7 Aug. 1700, H. C. 18; was of ar. co. 1682, in the Com.tee of Safety 1689, rep. 1693 and 8, and d. June 1700. His wid. m. 13 Nov. 1707, Waitstill Winthrop. JONATHAN, Boston, br. of the preced. by Simon's first w. was educ. for a surgeon 1656, but no more is kn. of him. 

*SIMON, Watertown, a surgeon, came in the Increase 1635, from London, emb. 15 Apr. aged 48, with w. Dorothy, 38 ; and ch. Mary, 15 ; Thomas, 13; Simon, 11 ; Rebecca, 9; Christian, 7; Ann, 5; Benjamin, 3; and Sarah, 3 mos. freem. 17 Apr. 1637, rep. 1641, selectman 1636-43, and clk. of the town 1641-5, when John Sherman succeed. and he soon rem. to Boston, where his w. d. 11 Aug. 1650; but he had, bef. rem. Jonathan, b. 20 Mar. 1638; and Dorothy, 14 June, 1640. Prob. too, his ch. Sarah d. at W. young;. and he m. a. 1651, Martha, d. of William Hubbard, sis. of the hist. and of John Whittingham of Ipswich, had Maria, b. 26 Mar. 1652 and John, 19 Feb. 1654; and d. 10 Oct. 1658, unless 10 Nov. by ano. rec. be more prob. His wid. d. 13 July 1687. Abstr. of his will of 5 July bef. his d. may be seen in Geneal. Reg,. IX. 39. Ann m. 5 Mar. 1652, [[vol. 2, p. 134]] John Checkley; and Mary, it is said, m. Richard Moseley, tho. wh. he was, I see not. 

SIMON, Boston, brot. by his f. the preced. with the other seven ch. 1635, m. Lydia, d. of Comfort Starr, had Simon, b. 6 Aug. 1652, to wh. gr.f. Starr made a bequest "to help him to learning." On 10 Aug. of next yr. his w. a. and he had d. few days bef. SIMON, New Haven, s. of the preced. m. 22 July 1679, Elizabeth d. of the sec. Isaac Allerton, the young wid. of Benjamin Starr, had Lydia, b. 17 Sept. 1680; Simon, 5 Sept. 1682; and Isaac, 23 Feb. 1684; and Benjamin, 19 June 1688; and Elizabeth 30 Oct. 1690; and d. at Milford 1695. Error in Geneal. Reg. 157, giv. the list of proprs. at New Haven 1685 (wh. is general. very accurate), is seen in the name of this man, as Egears; and in an earlier day some rec. gives it Heyers, while the London custom ho. shows Ayres. That John, wh. was drown. 30 Nov. 1696, "skating on the Fresh Pond" (as Sewall's Diary in Geneal. Reg. V. 76, tells), was his s. I venture to conject. tho. he was so far from home, bec. both he and his partner in the casualty are call. students, and prob. they were prepar. for adm. at coll. JOHN, sen. JOHN, jr. 

JOSEPH, NATHANIEL, SAMUEL, and TIMOTHY, wh. were all of Haverhill, and there took the milit. o. of alleg. 28 Nov. 1677, no doubt, tho. brot. in with E. belong to the first letter of our alphabet; yet as I could of either tell nothing more, their fall in Geneal. Reg. VI. 203, is no matter of regret. Common. the name at H. was Ayer. THOMAS, Watertown 1644, eldest s. of Simon the first, wh. in his will had devis. to him the est. at W. d. prob. without issue, perhaps unm. in Virginia 1666, tho. we may ask, in vain, why he was there, unless we assume that he had lost or wasted his gr. prop. wh. infer. must be justif. by Bond, 204, mak. his inv. no more than £26.13. Farmer thot. the fam. might be deriv. from John E. of Brandon in Suffk. whose s. Simon was in 1445 mayor of London. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Ann had Saville, b. 13 Dec. 1691; and Thomas, 13 July 1694. His parents are unkn. Ayer is often writ. for this name.
