By James Savage
FRIARD, ELISHA, of New Hampsh. 1689. Perhaps it was Fryer.
FRIBBENS, WILLIAM, giv. to me, as copied from a list of passengers, in the Mary and John, Robert Swyers (perhaps Sayers), master, to pass for N. E. wh. took the o. of alleg. and supremacy, 26 Mar. 1634, is by me (as this is almost an impossib. name and the two first letters might easi. in ancient chirogr. be mistak. for H.) thought to mean our William Hibbens.
FRIEND, FRANCIS, one of the flower of Essex, k. 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook under Capt. Lothrop. JAMES, Wenham, perhaps s. of John, freem. 1690. JOHN, Salem 1637, had first been at Saybrook with young John Winthrop was a carpenter, had, says Felt, a gr. of ld. 1637 there, but in Mar. 1640 was inhab. allow. of Boston, and ar. co. d. 1656, yet perhaps was again at Salem. His will of 4 Jan. 1656 names ch. Samuel, James, Bethia, and Elizabeth Gardiner names him, in Hist. of the Pequot war, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. III. 159; and, in spite of the variety of places, I judge him to be the same wh. sold a lot to George Willis at Hartford. RICHARD, Salem, m. 19 Apr. 1677, Ann Curtis, had Mary, b. 28 Apr. 1678.
FRIESE, JAMES, Salisbury, by w. Elizabeth had James, b. 16 Mar. 1667. Perhaps he was after of Newbury, and had John, wh. is ment. by Coffin.
FRINK, JOHN, Stonington 1666, by w. Grace, wh. d. 1717, had Deborah; Samuel, b. 14 Feb. 1669; John, 18 May 1671; Thomas, 25 May 1674; and d. 1718. Deborah m. Gershom Lambert. JOHN, Ipswich 1673, in his will, pro. Sept. 1675, names w. Mary, and ch. John, and George. Rev. Thomas, H. C. 1722, Rev. Samuel, H. C. 1758, beside two at other N. E. Coll. had been gr. 1834.
FRISBIE, EDWARD, and *JOHN, Branford, were signers of the Planta. and Ch. cov. Jan. 1668; the former d. 1690, had John, Benoni, Jonathan, Samuel, Abigail, Josiah, Caleb, Silence, Ebenezer, and Hannah; the latter m. Ruth, d. of John Bowers, perhaps had Abigail, wh. m. sec. William Hoadly, and Ruth (when his wid.) m. William Hoadly the first. He was rep. 1690 and 2, d. 1694; and left w. Ruth, ch. John, aged 18; Edward, 16; Rebecca, 14; Hannah, 12; Joseph, 6; Nathaniel, 4; and Lydia, 1. Prob. he was br. of Edward, and descend. of both are kn.
FRISH, JOHN, print. in Gen. Reg. IX. 80, as one of the Plymouth men under John Howland, Apr. 1634, when two men were k. is yet in my opin. design. to mean IRISH, wh. see. JOHN, a propr. of Bridgewater 1645. In Wonderwork. Provid. Johnson names thus a min. coming in 1637, but it must be error of the press, perhaps for Fisk.
FRISSELL, or FRIZELL, JAMES, Roxbury, by w. Sarah had Sarah, bapt. 2 Apr. 1665; Benjamin, 5 May 1667, d. 9 Nov. 1683; Hannah, 16 Dec. 1669; Ebenezer, 12 Mar. 1671; and Samuel, 8 June 1673; [[vol. 2, p. 210]] freem. 1690. Beside these ch. of wh. not one appears on the town rec. from that we find Mary, b. 16 May 1656; and James, 1 Oct. 1658. His w. d. 11 Feb. 1713; and he d. 6 Feb. 1717, aged 90. JAMES, Roxbury, s. of the preced. perhaps, by w. Mary had John, b. 14 Feb. 1706; and Isaac, 5 Nov. 1708.
JOHN, Braintree, from Scotland, d. 19 Jan. 1664. A John is found at Falmouth 1689, and John, H. C. 1724. SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of first James, by w. Martha had Martha, b. 16 Oct. 1695; Ebenezer, 22 Feb. 1698; and Samuel, 3 Apr. 1700; rem. to Framingham. WILLIAM, Concord, a Scotchman, m. 28 Nov. 1667, Hannah, d. of William Clark of Woburn, had Hannah, b. 12 Sept. 1669; William, 14 Oct. 1671; John, 28 Dec. 1673; Elizabeth 1 Mar. 1675; Mary, 1 Oct. 1677; and Clark, 13 June 1680; and he d. 5 Jan. 1685. Possib. he was one of the prison. taken by Cromwell at Worcester, and sent here for sale, 1651, in the John and Sarah, arr. at Boston, in May 1652; yet I think very few of that freight of misery liv. so long.
FROGLIE, TIMOTHY, a soldier in Capt. Turner's comp. 1676 from the E. at Springfield.
FROST, ABRAHAM, Fairfield, s. of William, b. in Eng. no doubt, call in his f.'s will of 6 Jan. 1645, the younger of the two s. CHARLES, Kittery, s. of Nicholas, prob. b. in Eng. came with his f. a. 1637; was rep. 1658, 60, and 1, capt. ment. by Hubbard, p. 28 of Ind. Wars, and major, chosen at the first elect. under the new chart. 1693, a counsellor, tho. not by Increase Mather nam. in it, was k. by the Ind. in ambush, as he was going home from pub. worship on Sunday, 14 July 1697, aged 65 yrs.

A differ. list of ch. in part, with variety in dates as well as names, may be seen in Gen. Reg. X. 45; and a critic. examinat. may lead to ascertain, whether a later be worthier than an elder tradit. He was deac. Col. and Judge of Pro.
DANIEL, Fairfield, elder br. of Abraham, liv. in 1670, by w. Elizabeth had Rebecca, b. 1640, wh. m. 5 Jan. 1664, Simeon Booth; Daniel, wh. d. a. 1707; Joseph, wh.

He left w. with an unspeakable name, like Reana (wh. had been wid. of Robert Daniels, so his third w.) writ. in his will of 16 Apr. preced. and codic. of next day, names all his eight ch. gives something to the new coll. then building, and to George Alcock, then a student.
EPHRAIM, Cambridge, a of the preced. freem. 1684, had w. Hepzibah, wh. d. 23 Sept. 1719, aged 64, ch. Edmund, Mary, Sarah, and perhaps others; and d. 2 Jan. 1718, aged, prob. 70, tho. the gr. stone would make him older. GEORGE, Saco 1636-40. Folsom, 33.

JASPER, Boston, m. 20 Aug. 1660, Elizabeth d. of John Wakefield of B. had Jasper, b. 5 Feb. 1664; and Elizabeth 24 Feb. 1665. JOHN, Cambridge, eldest s. of Elder Edmund, d. bef. 25 Sept. 1672. He, perhaps, m. Rebecca, d. of Thomas Andrews of Watertown, had Rebecca, b. 3 Dec. 1669.

JOHN, Dover 1665, is possib. mistaken by Farmer for J. Foss. JOHN, York, s. of Nicholas, d. 1677, leav. John and Philip to be admors.; and John, I think, was of Isle of Shoals, carr. on fishery, there d. 1718, leav. wid. Sarah, s. John, Samuel, and Ithamar, and a d. wh. it is said, m. William Fox, but it is not told where he liv. See Gen. Reg. IV. 249. JOHN, Boston 1677, merch. had Thomas, and John; possib. was the propr. of New Haven 1685.

Joseph Hammond. He had, prob. b. here John, bef. ment.; Elizabeth wh. m. William Smith; and Nicholas, wh. was a merch. d. at Limerick in Ireland, Aug. 1673, unm. He had been in Oct. 1632, very severely sentenced to fines, whip. brand. and banishm. on penalty of death for return. yet seems to have obtain. great mitigat. so that we may be tolera. confid. as he did come again within the jurisdict. that he was less guilty. He had good est. and provid. for ch. in will of 1660, in wh. w. is not nam. so that we may infer, she was then d. but this win was set aside; and he d. 20 July 1663.
PHILIP, York, whose f. is unkn. to me, took o. of alleg. 22 Mar. 1681. SAMUEL, Billerica, prob. s. of Edmund, had Thomas, Joseph, and perhaps sev. others, was freem. 1678.

WILLIAM, Fairfield, came from Nottingham, Eng. says Lechford in "Plain Dealing," a. 1646. His will, of 6 Jan. in that yr. print. in Trumbull's Col. Rec. I. 465, names s. Daniel, and Abraham; ds. Elizabeth w. of John Grey, Mary Riley, and Lydia, w. of Henry Grey, and her ch. Mary, and Jacob; speaks of his est. in Eng. wh. he devis. to M. Riley, and her ch. and of sev. gr.ch. Frosts and Greys. WILLIAM, Salem, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 31 July 1677. Nine of this name had, in 1838, been gr. at Harv. and eight at the other N. E. coll.
FROTHINGHAM, NATHANIEL, Charlestown, 8. of William, m. 6 Feb. 1668, Mary Hett, d. of Thomas, had Mary, b. 25 Sept. 1668, bapt. 29 Jan. 1671, d. young; Nathaniel, 16 Apr. 1670, d. soon; Nathaniel, again, 2, bapt. 9 July 1671; Hannah, 26 Nov. bapt. 28 Dec. 1673, a. young; Thomas, 2, bapt 5 Dec. 1675; Joseph, 31 Oct. bapt. 11 Nov. 1677; Benjamin, 26 Dec. 1679, bapt. 15 May 1680; Mary, again, 14, [[vol. 2, p. 213]] bapt. 19 Nov. 1682; Hannah, again, 30, bapt. 31 May 1685; Abigail, 10 bapt. 15 May 1687; and Abiel, bapt. 26 May 1689, perhaps posthum. was freem. 1671, and d. 12 Dec. 1688.
NICHOLAS, Charlestown, whose name is never seen by me, exc. in Gen. Reg. XI. 105, may be mistaken for Nathaniel. PETER,, Charlestown, s. of William, m. 14 Mar. 1665, Mary, d. of Richard Lowden, had William, b. 27, bapt. 29 Mar. 1668; Ann, 18, bapt. 21 May 1671; John, 19, bapt. 28 Feb. 1675; Sarah, 8 June 1679; Mary, 27 June, bapt. 2 July 1682; and Martha, 22, bapt. 29 Mar. 1685; was freem. 1668, and d. by the gr.stone, on the same day with Nathaniel, but this, tho. striking, is not more observable, than the carelessness in the rec. as to the ages of these brs. SAMUEL, Charlestown, br. of the preced. m. 1668, Ruth, d. of John George, had Ruth, b. 28 Nov. bapt. 4 Dec. 1670; Elizabeth 15 Oct. 1673, bapt. 22 Feb. foll. ; Samuel, 30 Dec. 1675, bapt. 9 Jan. foll. ; Rebecca, 25 Oct. 1677; Hannah, 24 Feb. bapt. 15 May 1680; and John, 24, bapt. 28 Jan. 1683; was freem. 1671, and d. 25 May 1683; and his wid. m.

His wid. d. 28 July 1674, aged 67. Her will, of 4 Oct. 1672, names ch. Samuel, Peter, Nathaniel, s.-in-law, Joseph Kettle, and Thomas White, and makes the last excor. Mary m. 17 Nov. 1663, White; Hannah m. 5 July 1665, Joseph Kettle. This has been the most com. name in the town for a large part of its exist.
FROW, or FRO, DAVID, an Irish serv. at Northampton in 1668, m. 7 Feb. 1678, Priscilla, wid. of William Hunter of Springfield, had Abigail, b. at S. 13 Sept. 1679, perhaps other ch. rem. from Springfield to Suffield, there d. 1710; and his wid. d. 1726.

He d. a. 1696; his wid. d. 17 mar. 1725; and of the ch. the early deaths of three are rec. Mehitable, 30 Nov. 1694; Mary, 4 Jan. 1696; and Ann, 27 June foll.
GEORGE, Weymouth, weaver, freem. 1651; in his will of 26 July 1676, names d. Ruth Torrey, w. of Jonathan, d. Naomi Yeales, d. Bethia Reed, made James Smith, senr. of W. and Timothy Yeales of Boston excors. [[vol. 2, p. 214]] He testif. in Mar. 1674, that he kn. the Torreys, William and Samuel at Combe St. Nicholas, Co.

JOHN, Newbury, wheelwright, came from Basing in Hants, May 1638, emb. in the Bevis at Southampton, with w. and three young ch. engaged, I think, by Richard Dummer, wh. was in the sh. rem. 1645 to Andover, and was one of the found. of the ch. freem. 1669; his w. Ann d. 22 Oct. 1680, and he a. 9 Nov. 1693, aged 92 yrs. 7 mos. says the rec. His ch. says Coffin, were John; Samuel; James, b. 5 Jan. 1653; Benjamin; Elizabeth and Susan; but, in the want of discrim. to instr. us wh. had come with parents, we assume that John and the last two were b. in Eng. We kn. that Susan on 5 Mar. 1662, d. unm. and that Elizabeth m. 4 Oct. 1660, Robert Stiles of Boxford. JOHN, Andover, s. of the preced. m. 4 Oct. 1660, Eunice, eldest d. of Luke Potter, prob. had no ch. was deac. d. 17 Sept. 1696.

FRYER, or FRIER, JAMES, Cambridge. His w. Catharine d. 28 July 1640. NATHANIEL, Boston, mariner, perhaps 8. of the preced. by w. Christian had James, b. 7 Oct. 1653; Sarah, 20 July 1656; and Elizabeth 1 Nov. 1657, is in a deed to him, call. Emanuel, alias Nathaniel, after Mar. 1659, when he was adm. of the sec. ch. (of wh. his w. had been some yrs. a mem.) rem. to Portsmouth, m. at Newbury, says Coffin, Oct. 1679, Dorothy, perhaps d. of John Woodbridge, as sec. w. was rep. in [[vol. 2, p. 215]] 1666, capt. and council. in 1683, d. 13 Aug. 1705. Hubbard, in Ind. Wars, gives acco. of his eldest s. James. THOMAS, Salem, had gr. of Id. 1639, rem. prob. to Gloucester, there was selectman 1642; and Elizabeth perhaps his wid. or a. d. there 9 Sept. 1685. Margaret, perhaps his sis. was first w. of Thomas Gardner.
FUGILL, THOMAS, New Haven 1639, is nam. by Rev. Thomas Shepard in his autobiog. as one of the serv. of Sir Richard Darley of Buttercrambe, had bapt. Mercy, on 2 Aug. 1640; John, 13 June 1641; and Pledge, 1 Feb. 1646; was Sec. of the col. in 1641, so cont. till 1645, when for false rec. he was dism. soon excom. and went home. See Young's Chron. of Mass. 525. One John F. prob. s. of Thomas, was at New Haven a. 1669, as by testim. of Capt. Nathan Andrews, and Mr. John Todd, 30 June 1710, that they knew him above 40 yrs. bef. but he did not, as they knew of, lay any claim to the ld. that was his f.'s.
FULHAM, FRANCIS, Watertown, m. Sarah d. of John Livermore, had Jacob, b. 19 Nov. 1693 ; Sarah, 2 Mar. 1695 ; Hannah, 10 June 1697; and Mary, 4 Apr. 1702. His w. d. 10 Mar. 1724, and he m. 1 Oct. foll. Mary, wid. of Samuel Jones, d. of Thomas Woolson.
FULLER, BENJAMIN, Rehoboth, s. of Robert of Salem. BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of Thomas, m. 15 Dec. 1685, ..... Bacon, had Samuel, Benjamin, b. 25 Feb. 1687; Sarah, Ruth, Abigail, and Hannah. He liv. in the vill. wh. became Danvers, was freem. 1690. DanIEL, New Haven 1640. EDWARD, Plymouth, br. of the famous Samuel, came with him in the Mayflower 1620, bring. w. Ann and s. Samuel, and leav. Matthew, on the other side, wh. was elder, d. early next yr. as did his w. but his s. Samuel outliv. the hardships. EDWARD, Boston 1630, whose s. John, says Lewis, sett. at Lynn. But I believe we kn. no more, than that the name has 'much prevail. there. Edward was employ. in 1643, to bring, with others, the cattle of the Gortonists, taken near Providence, under the absurd pretence of being spoil of war. No doubt he was of the true, or popular faith, or he would not thus have been trusted; and this may, perhaps, render it less prob. that he was the same Edward subject. in 1639 to cens. by the Gen. Ct. for distemper. with wine. EDWARD, Lynn, freem. 1691, was, perhaps, s. of Robert of the same. GILES, Hampton, 1640, d. 2 Apr. 1673.

Old, but that Jackson, wh. perhaps quotes the gr.st. says he d. 7 Feb. 1699, in 87th yr. and he was freem. 1690, tho. his first four s. were together made freem. ten yrs. earlier. His wid.

Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675); Bethia, 23 Nov. 1661; and Isaac, 2 Feb. 1665, wh. d. 5 Oct. 1691. All the other five s. liv. from 74 to 98 yrs.

Dec. 1687; John, Oct. 1689; and Reliance, 8 Sept. 1691. In this yr. he d. and his wid. m. 9 Dec. 1695, Capt.John Lothrop, it is thot, Of ano. at Barnstable, call. little JOHN (to disting. him from his cous. John, s. of Matthew wh. was elder), when his w.

JONATHAN, Dedham, a. 1642, freem. 1671. JONATHAN, Dedham, the freem. of 1672, was, perhaps, s. of Robert of Dorchester, by w.

JOSHUA, Newton, br. of the preced. freem. 1680, m. 7 June 1679, Elizabeth d. of John Ward, had only ds. Elizabeth b. 22 Feb. 1680; Hannah, 8 July 1682; Experience, 5 Nov. 1685; and Mercy, 11 Mar. 1689. His w. d. 6 Sept. 1691. By 2d w. be had Abigail, a. 1697; Sarah; and Ruth; d. 1752. He was in 89th yr. when he m. 19 July 1742, Mary Dana, in her 75th for third w. but they had no ch.
LANCELOT, Ne, Haven 1643, m. Hannah Marsh, and had a child b. 1651. MATTHEW, Plymouth, a. 1640, s. of Edward the first, b. in Eng. rem. to Barnstable 1652, a physician, appoint. surg. of the force of the col. 1673, a capt. 1675, as Thatcher says, and d. 1678. By w.

ROBERT, Dorchester 1640, freem. 2 June 1641, by w. Ann had Jonathan, b. 15 Aug. 1643; rem. to Dedham, there had Benoni, 16 June 1646; and perhaps his w. d. very soon; by w.

ROBERT, Salem 1639, rem. to Rehoboth, there was freem. 1658, wh. he had visited perhaps fifteen yrs. bef. and may there have had one or more ch. of wh. we kn. only, that he calls Jonathan his eldest s. in a deed of 28 May 1696 for ld. in R. but had, also, Benjamin, old eno. to take deed of 1 Dec. 1679 for ho. and six acres at R. while he styles hims. in both, of Salem, bricklayer. Prob. he had been driv. in Philip's war from enjoym. of his est. and would encourage his s. to ascertain if it might be profit. in peace. By the rec. at R. his n. Sarah was bur. 14 Oct. 1676; and w. Margaret, wh. may not have been mo. of any ch. d. 30 Jan. 1700; and he d. 10 May 1706. Abigail, perhaps his d. m. at R. 16 Oct. 1679, Thomas Cushman.
ROBERT, Lynn, freem. 1680, may be the same as preced. but not prob. SAMUEL, Plymouth 1620, one of the most valu. pilgrims of the Mayflower, the first physician that came to sett. in our country. He had been a deac. at least 8 yrs. at Leyden, tho. his w. Bridget, wh. came in the Ann 1623, with a ch. that, I think, liv. not long, may have been m. but short time bef. he left Holland. He brot. serv. William Butten, a youth, wh. d. bef. reach. the coast; had Samuel, and Mercy, b. here, both after 22 May 1627, and both liv. 1650; and d. 1633, betw. 30 July, the date of his will, and end of Oct. foll. when it was pro. His w. Bridget liv. until 1664. She was his third w. The first was Elsie Glascock, m. in Eng. and perhaps d. bef. the sad parting from his native ld. and, next, he m. at Leyden, 30 Apr. 1613, Agnes Carpenter, from Wrentham, Co. Suff k. sis. of Alice, the sec. w. of Gov. Bradford. She liv. not long; and he m. 27 May 1617, ano. maiden, Bridget Lee, her mo. and br. Samuel assist. at the solemnity. In the docum. to verify this m. F. is call. silkmaker of London.
SAMUEL, Plymouth, neph. of the preced. made excor. of his will, was s. of the first Edward, and by him brot. in the Mayflower 1620; after d. of his parents, liv. with the uncle, and at the div. of lds. 1624, was count. I presume, out of respectto f. and mo. for three persons; freem. of the col. 1634, rem. to Scituate, thence to Barnstable, at Scituate hav. m. 8 Apr. 1635, Jane, d. of Rev. John Lothrop, had Hannah, wh. m. 1 Jan. 1659, Nicholas Bonham; Samuel, wh. was bapt. at S. 11 Feb. 1638, and may be the one wh. d. at Rehoboth 15 Aug 1676; Sarah, tho. b. at S. bapt. at B. 1 Aug,. 1641, d. young; and b at B. were Mary, 16 June 1644, wh. m. Joseph Williams, 18 Nov. 1674; Thomas, 18 May 1651; Sarah, again, 14 Dec. 1654, wh. m. a Crow; and John; beside one, 8 Feb. 1658, wh. d. at a fortnight; and he d. 31 Oct. 1683; one of the latest Mayflowers.
SAMUEL, Plymouth, s. of the first Samuel, was a preach. but seems to have been slow to rem. prob. giving his time to pious care of his mo. refus. invit. to Rehoboth after d. of Newman, but preach. at Middleborough sixteen yrs. and at last was ord. there when the first ch. wars gather. 26 Dec. 1694, and d. 17 Aug. foll. in 71st yr. if his gr.stone be correct. Of this the doubt is almost invinc. for it would carry his b. to 1623 or 4, at least, whereas in the div. of cattle, May 1627, his f. head of the eighth lot, counts only for hims. w. and cous. or neph. bef. ment. Still stranger, however, to our modern notions, seems the nomin. of him as excor. of will, when he could not be [[vol. 2, p. 219]] 8, and prob. was only 5 yrs. old. He had w. Elizabeth but was not m. bef. 1650, ch. nam. in the will, pro. 1 Oct. 1695, Mercy, w. of Daniel Cole, perhaps his sec.; Samuel, b. 1659; Experience, w. of James Wood; John; Elizabeth w. of Samuel Eaton; Hannah, w. of Eleazer Lewis, and Isaac, wh. was under age, as may have been the last d. By Lewis, in Hist. of Lynn, ed. 2, p. 111, this Samuel is call. br. of John, s. of Edward, and he speaks of his arr. in Boston 1630, so as to lead to confusion, if not starting from it. Deane, in Hist. of Scituate, seems almost as confus. as his br. Hist. of Lynn. The name of his w. is giv. in the ch. Hist. of M. as Brewster, and perhaps she was gr.d. of the noble William; she d. at Plymouth 4 Nov. 1713. Confusion, indeed, is often unavoida. With all the aid deriv. from books, and the scrupulous dilig. of Otis, I am uncert. whether SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of the first Samuel of the same, wh. m. Ann, d. of his uncle Matthew and had Matthew, Barnabas, Joseph, Benjamin, Desire, and Sarah, were the same man as SAMUEL, Rehoboth, wh. m. 17 Apr. 1673, Mary Ide, perhaps d. of Nicholas. SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of Capt. Matthew, by w. Mary had Thomas, Jabez, Timothy, Matthias, wh. d. unm. Abigail, Ann, and Samuel, posthum. b. 1676. THOMAS, Woburn, m. 13 June 1643, Elizabeth Tidd, had Thomas, b. 22 or 30 Apr. 1644; Elizabeth 12 Sept. 1645; Ruth, 17 May 1648; Deborah, 12 May 1650; John, 1 Mar. 1653; Jacob, 14 May 1655; Joseph, 8 Aug. 1658; Benjamin, 15 Apr. 1660; and Samuel, 9 3 May 1662. Prob. he was of Salem 1670, that pt. now Middleton, and d. June 1698 aged 80, and m. 25 Aug. 1684, Sarah, wid. of John Wyman, d. of Miles Nutt.
THOMAS, Dedham 1643, by w. Hannah Flower, m. 22 Nov. of that yr. had John, b. 1 Nov. 1644, d. soon; John, again, 28 Dec. 1645; Elizabeth 1 Apr. 1648; Hannah, 9 Nov. 1650; Thomas, 26 Feb. 1652, d. young; Mary, 25 Mar. 1655; Samuel, 25 Apr. 1657; Sarah, 3 Sept. 1659; and Thomas, again, 23 June 1662; freem. not in 1653, as Farmer said, but perhaps in 1672, was ensign, rep. 1673, 9, and 86. His w. d. 11 Apr. 1672; and he d. 28 Sept. 1690, hav. made his will four days bef. Elizabeth m. the sec John Kingsbury of the same, and next, 17 Sept. 1672, m. third Michael Metcalf. THOMAS, Salem, by w. Ruth had Thomas, b. 3 Apr. 1671; Jonathan, 19 Sept. 1673; John, 23 Jan. 1677; Joseph, 12 Aug. 1679; and William, 30 Nov. 1685.
THOMAS, Dedham, prob. s. of Thomas of the same, freem. 1690. THOMAS, perhaps a of Thomas of Woburn, m. 25 Aug. 1684, Sarah Wyman, may hav. liv. at Danvers, and been freem. 1690. WILLIAM, Ipswich 1635, came that yr. in the Abigail, aged 25, with John, perhaps his br. aged 15, may have had w. Frances, rem. 1639 to Hampton, rep. 1661 and 7, d. 26 May 1693. WILLIAM, Concord, appoint. gunsmith May 1637, to accomp. the troops against the Pequots; was a miller there 1639; had Hannah, b. 8 Aug. 1641; and his w. Elizabeth [[vol. 2, p. 220]] d. 24 July foll. Possib. he was freem. 2 June 1641. WILLIAM, Hampton, prob. s. of William of the same, freem. 1678, m. 22 June 1680, Susanna, d. of Isaac Perkins, and wid. of Isaac Buzzell of Salisbury.

FULLFORD, RICHARD, Pemaquid, had liv. there fifty years bef. the Ind. drove him and others from that place, with w. Elizabeth Pierce, had Elizabeth wh. m. Richard Martin of Marblehead; as Richard Pierce, aged 70, John P. 68, and George P. 55, brs. of Fullford╒s w. testif. in 1721. This proof, tak. at req. of Martin, was corrobo. by Maurice Champney, aged 79.
FURBER, WILLIAM, Dover 1643, b. a. 1614, came in the Angel Gabriel from Bristol, wreck. at Pemaquid in the great storm of Aug. 1635, was one of the witnesses to the true deed of the Ind. 1638 to Wheelwright, rep. 1648; had William, b. 1646, wh. was of Dover, as well as the f. 1684, and is the ancest. prob. of a num. line; beside Jethro, and three ds. Elizabeth wh. m. John Dam; Susanna, wh. m. 5 May 1664, John Bickford; and Bridget, wh. m. Thomas Bickford. The w. of Dam was his sec. w. m. 9 Nov. 1664. John Bickford had ano. w. Temperance. Sometimes this name is Furbush.
