Of these, Mary, b. 11, bapt. 22 June 1651, m. 20 Nov. 1673, Robert Auger; and Hannah was bapt. Apr. 1653. His w. Jane d. 1706. Over the remains of this latest dep. gov. of the (Col. and the only Assist. wh. had not the distinct. of being an Assist. of the United Col. of Conn. tho. nominat. having failed of elect. after the chart. of Charles II., the gr.stone bears only the initials M. G., and above them the numerals 80. Perverse ingenuity, in Presid. Stiles, support. an extravag. hypothesis (that the corpses of the two regicides, Whalley and Goffe, wh. d. at Hadley, and there were bur. by their devot. supporter, Rev. John Russell, very close to his cellar wall, had been disinter. and were brot. to New Haven, to lie near that of Dixwell), has been compell. to suppose that by M. G. the stonecutter meant W. G.

John was tak. by the Ind. in Philip's war, 1675 or 6, and Mrs. Rowlandson, during her captiv. among them, saw and assist. him. He escaped with gr. peril of his life; but I kn. nothing more. THOMAS, Topsfield, from Scotland, it is said, but I hesitate to believe it, came in the Prudent Mary from London, arr. at Boston, July 1661. A fellow passeng. was Ch. J. Samuel Sewall, then nine yrs. old. He had been min. in Eng. and soon found a place in our country as first min. of T. in 1663. But his imprud. and intemper. requir. his dism. and he went back to Charlestown, where he had first sett. and d. 26 Oct. 1673 at the ho. of Rev. Zechariah Symmes. His will, of 2 June 1673, wh. gives every thing to w. Elizabeth speaks of £30 due "for pains in the ministry at T." tho. we may fear, as his dism. was not reputable, it could not be recov. at law. It is strange, that ch. rec. of Charlestown, on recept. of his wid. call. her Sarah. Budington gives from the Magn. part IV. of Book III. cap. VI., the monument inscript. wh. is still legib.

GILDERSLEEVE, *RICHARD, Stamford, one of the first sett. in 1641, was rep. in 1643, but he had been five yrs. at Wethersfield bef. going to S. yet it is not kn. that he went from Watertown or other part of Mass. In 1663 he was of Hempstead, L. I. whither he rem. near 17 yrs. bef. and in some of the time had liv. at Newton, next yr. had a commiss. for [[vol. 2, p. 253]] admin. justice there; and the fam. name was perpet. by Richard, jr. prob. his s.
