GINGELL, GINGLE, GENGILL, or GINGEN, JOHN, Taunton 1639-43, [Baylies, I. 286. 9.] rem. to Dorchester, thence, perhaps, after many yrs. to Salem, freem. 1646, made his will 10 Apr. 1685, at the age of 70,but it was pro. not bef. 24 Mar. 1687. He seems to notice no fam. connex. gives £5 to ch. of Dorchester, same amt. to Mr. Lawson, min. of Salem vill. (Danvers), if he cont. there till ch. be formed.

GLANFIELD, ROBERT, Salem, mariner, m. 12 July 1665, Lydia Ward, prob. d. of Miles first of the same, had Lydia, b. 3 Sept. 1666; Abigail, Apr. 1668; Peter, 7 June 1670; Robert, 27 July 1672; and Sarah, 1675.

GLASS, JAMES, Plymouth 1638, apprent. to Henry Coggin of Barnstable, first and, after, to Manasseh Kempton, it is said; m. 31 Oct. 1645, Mary, d. of William Pontus, had Hannah, b, 2 June 1647, d. next yr. [[vol. 2, p. 260]] Wybra, 9 Aug. 1649; Hannah, again, 24 Dec. 1651; and Mary, posthum. 1652. He was freem. 1648; and 3 Sept. 1652, near the harbor, lost in a storm. His wid. m. 1657, Philip Delano, as his sec. w. Wybra m. Joseph Bumpus of Middleborough; Hannah m. Isaac Billington; and Mary m. Samuel Hunt. 

JAMES, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had William, b. 11 Jan. 1688; Robert, 19 Sept. 1692; and Elizabeth 6 Nov. 1695. RICHARD, Pemaquid, took the o. of fidel. 1 674; was of Manchester 1686. ROGER, Duxbury, had been apprent. to John Crocker, and for his ill treatm. was discharg. in 1639 by the Court, and put out to John Whetcomb of Scituate; by w. Mary, had Elizabeth James, Emma, Mary, and John. He was freem. 1657, perhaps, br. of first James, and d. 169(). Amy, perhaps sis. of James, or Roger, or both, m. 1639, Richard Willis. John, s. of Roger, perish. in the bootless exped. against, Quebec, 1690.

GLEASON, ISAAC, Enfield 1684, had been a soldier in the Falls fight 1676, was, perhaps, s. of Thomas of Watertown, had at E. Isaac, Thomas, and sev. ds. d. 1698. JOHN, Sudbury, s. of Thomas, m.

Hannah;Martha, wh. d. 1684; and he m. 22 Dec. 1686, Abigail Garfield; d. 1711 at Sudbury. RICHARD, call. an orig. propr. of Sudbury, 1640, in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 261; yet may be a mistake for the foll. THOMAS, Watertown, Cambridge, and Charlestown, had ch. b. in both the first, Thomas, Joseph, John, as Barry appears to say, at W. and in Cambridge by w. Susanna had Mary, 31 Oct. 1657, and in my opin. also, either there, or at Charlestown, Isaac and William. Bond thinks, with good reason, he is the man ment. in Geneal. Reg. III. 401, as sw. fidel. in 1653. THOMAS, Sudbury, s. prob. eldest, of the preced. by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 6 Feb. 1665; Ann; Thomas; Isaac; Patience; Mary, 19 June 1680; and John.

GLOVER, CHARLES, Salem 1632, a shipwright, arr. at Boston 16 Sept. in the Lion, freem. 2 June 1641, had w. Elizabeth rem. to Gloucester, was selectman 1644 and 5; had Samuel, b. 20 June 1644. His W. d. Mar. 1648, and he m. 12 Feb. 1650, wid. Esther Saunders, rem. to Southold, L.I. there, in 1674, made his will, and d. leav. s. Samuel excor. HABAKKUK, Boston, s. of John of Dorchester, b. in Eng. was a tanner, with good est. freem. 1650; m. 4 May 1653, Hannah, eldest ch. of Rev.

Abigail was admx. is in Vol. III. 3], of our Suffk. Prob. rec. 

HENRY, New Haven 1647, or earlier, came, prob. in the Elizabeth from Ipswich 1634, aged 24, had Mary, bapt. June 1641; Mercy, Aug. 1643; Hannah, May 1646; John, 8 Oct. 1648; Abigail, b. 29 Apr. 1651, d. soon; Abigail, again, b. 31 July 1652; and Sarah, 3, bapt. 9 Dec. 1655; was a promin. man, propr. in 1685, d. 2 Sept. 1689. His wid. Elinor d. 1 Mar. 1698, aged 85. In letters of Davenport to Winthrop 1655, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 9 and 12, his w. is refer. to; and perhaps he was the lieut. of Southold 1662, that yr. adm. as freem. of Conn. Trumbull, Col. Rec. 388. His d. Hannah m. 24 Nov. 1663, David Ashley; Mercy m. 10 May 1664 Moses Mansfield; Sarah m. 11 Dec. 1678, John Ball; and Abigail m. the same day Daniel Burr; and his will, pro. Oct. 1689, gives to childr. of his s. John. α *JOHN, Dorchester 1630, came, perhaps in the Mary and John, but was a Lancashire man, and engag. in the favor of the Plant. bef. embark. ;in 1629, was a capt. rep. 1637-50, and near all the same yrs. selectman, ;rem. to Boston, was assist. 1652 and 3, d. early next yr. His will of 11 Apr. 1653, has codic. of 26 Jan. foll. and pro. 9 Feb. after, recites that he had giv. a yr. bef. to s. Thomas his messuage at Rainhill in Lancaster, Eng. "as competent jointure to Rebecca now his w. with wh. he is to .have a consid. portion," had promis. s. Nathaniel £400; had giv. Habakkuk half a new dwell.-ho. and pits and accom. for tan. equal to £400, prov. for w. Ann, s. John, and Pelatiah, b. Sept. 1636; all of wh. exc. the last two, I think he had brot. from Eng. He had no d. JOHN, Cambridge, s. of Rev. Josse, b. in Eng. H. C. 1650, in 1651 was liv. in Eng. had a degr. of M. D. at Aberdeen, and prob. never came ag?in to our side of the ocean. JOHN, Boston, s. of first John, H. C. 1651, (unless this distinct. belong to a New Haven gent.), a merch. wh. had perhaps, liv. at Swanzey 1683, but at B. d. and was bur. 25 Sept. 1696; in his will names w. Elizabeth prob. d. of John Andrew, but no other relat. styles hims. gent. wh. may seem to support his right to the coll. honor. Yet the careful Hist. of Dorchester does not claim him. JOHN, Boston, by w. Mary had Hannah, b. 5 Apr. 1659 and John, b. 1 Feb. 1661, may be the same as preced. 

JOHN, New Haven, perhaps s. of Henry, yet strange. regard. by Prof. Kingsley in let. to me, as the gr. of Harv. 1651, d. 29 Jan. 1680, [[vol. 2, p. 262]] leav. good est. but had Hannah, b. 10 Oct. 1672; John, 20 Nov. 1674; Elizabeth 23 Feb. 1667; and Mehitable, 1 May 1679. JOHN, Salem, m. 2 Jan. 1660, Mary Guppy, d. of John of the same had John, b. 29 Aug. 1661; William, 15 Mar. 1664; Mary, 1 May 1666; Sarah, July 1668; Hannah, 24 June 1670; Benjamin, 28 Mar. 1674; perhaps Jonathan, Apr. 1677; and Ebenezer, 13 or 18 Apr. 1685. His will of 19 Apr. 1635,pro. 13 May foll. ment. wid. Mary, S. JOHN, and other childr. not nam. JOHN, Barnstable, s. of Nathaniel of Dorchester, went with his mo. to Barnstable after her m. and d. 25 Aug. 1690, aged 35. 

JOHN, Norwich 1674, m. Hannah, 29 May 1682. JONATHAN, Salem, s. of John of the same, m. Abigail Henderson, perhaps d. of Archibald, had Abigail, b. 23 Nov. prob. 1699; Mary, 18 Jan. 1701; Jonathan, 14 Dec. 1702; Benjamin, 7 Sept. 1704; Joseph, 27 June 1706; and David, 9 Jan. perhaps 1709. JOSSE, rector, it is said, of Sutton, in Surry, made contr. 7 June 1638, with Stephen Day of Cambridge, Eng. to come over with w. ch. and serv. in the John of London, at exp. of Glover, his design being to set up a printing press here; d. on the pass. and his wid. Elizabeth m. Henry Dunster, after the first Presid. of Harv. Coll. His eldest s. Roger was a capt. k. in the civil war at Edinburg, it is said; John, above ment. is the only other s.; but three ds. were fixed in our country; Elizabeth w. of Adam Winthrop, wh. d. early; Sarah, w. of Deane Winthrop; and Priscilla, w. of John Appleton. Sometimes he is call. Jesse; by President Quincy and many others, Joseph; but the stranger name prevails. Of course, he has no claim to be insert. in these pages, as inhab. of N. E. where he never came, but eminent. are his righteous intent. to be honor. and his relat. to our country by his childr. m. and his own d. on the ocean would make omiss. inexcus. 

NATHANIEL, Dorchester, s. of first John, b. in Eng. m. May, the ch. brot. from Warrington in a pannier, to embark at Bristol, as told by a credita. tradit. d. of John Smith, common. kn. as Quartermaster, bec. he had serv. in the Netherlands in that capac. had Nathaniel; John, b. 1655; and Ann; was freem. 1654, selectman 1655 and 6, d. 21 May 1657. Ann m. 11 July 1673, William Rawson. His wid. m. 15 Mar. 1660, Thomas Hinckley, after Gov. of Plymouth. NATHANIEL, Dorchester, s. of the preced. freem. 1678, was capt. 1687, m. Hannah, d. of Thomas Hinckley, Gov. of Plymouth Col. wh. a. 20 Aug. 1730, as the gr.stone at D. has it, but mak. her yrs. less by two than truth, wh. is very unusual occur. He had Hannah, b. 3 Dec. 1681, wh. m. it is said, at Marblehead, but d. at Boston, 1 July 1749. 

PELATIAH, Springfield, s. of first John, b. at Dorchester 1637, or 9, was educ. at Harv. but left the coll. without gr. m. 20 May 1660, Hannah, d. of capt. John Cullick, had Samuel, b. 28 Nov. 1661, wh. d. 24 July 1683, unm.; John, 1 July 1663, d. in two yrs.; Pelatiah, [[vol. 2, p. 263]] 27 Jan. 1666; Ann, 21 Aug. 1668, d. 1690, unm. and Mary, 17 Apr. 1672. He was sec. min. of S. ord. 18 June 1661; his w. d. 1689, and he d. 29 Mar. 1692. Pelatiah, wh. had fam. in S;. and Mary, wh. m. 7 Nov. 1693, John Haynes of Hartford, outliv. the f. Sprague, 18. RALPH, Dorchester. req. to be adm. freem. 19 Oct. 1630, hav. then prefix of respect in the rec. and so may be presum. to have come in the fleet with Winthrop but he d. bef. July 1633, and his est. was admin. by Thomas Mayhew, so that we may suppose he had liv. at Watertown. SAMUEL, Southold, L.I. s. of Charles, by w. Sarah had seven ch. of wh. the eldest was Samuel; was liv. 1708. 

STEPHEN, Gloucester 1658, br. perhaps, of the preced. m. 7 Oct. 1663, Ruth, d. of William Stephens, perhaps as sec. w. had a ch. b. 2 Aug. 1664, d. in 3 days, and his w. d. in few more; was selectman 1659, 61, 9-86; d. 10 Dec. 1686. His will names only Sargents, his friends, and he gave all his prop. to Nathaniel, s. of William S. requiring that he should be "bred up to learn." so that I presume him to be either the gr. of 1707, or his neph. || THOMAS, Dorchester, eldest s. prob. of first John, ar. co. 1642, liv. in London 1661, and may well be thot. to have ended his days in Eng. where he was well m. Six of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and four at other N. E. coll.

GOADBY, JOHN, a youth of 16, emb. at London, early in Apr. 1635, in the Hopewell, Capt. Bundock; but tho. his fam. name has not reach. me here, it may exist in the old country.

GOAD, or GOARD, JOSEPH, Roxbury, s. of Richard, was of Moseley's comp. in Dec. 1675, liv. few yrs. bef. 1679 at Hadley, m. 23 Mar. 1681, Ann Chaplin, had Ann, b. 27 Aug. 1682; Sarah, 19 Apr. 1684, d. in few mos.; Mary, 27 Mar. 1687; and Sarah, again, 27 Dec. 1689; and d. 12 Aug. 1691. 

RICHARD, Roxbury, came in the Elizabeth and ann, perhaps, the name slightly varied, 1635, aged 17, m. 30 Nov. 1639, Phebe Howes, had Hannah, b. June 1641; John, both bapt. 1 July 1643; Mary, 23 June 1644; Phebe, 14 Mar. 1646; Joseph, 19 Sept. 1647, d. at 8 mos.; Sarah, 25 Mar. 1649; Joseph, again, 13 Apr. 1651; Lydia, 27 Feb. 1653; Benjamin, 3 Dec. 1654, d. soon, and the ancient official transcr. at Boston, as giv. in GeneaL Reg. XI. 330, takes the b. 27 Nov. and bur. 31 Oct. bef. and Benjamin, again, 7 Sept. 1656. This last was execut. 2 Apr. 1674, and Danforth, the min. of his parents preach. an appropr. discourse on the foll. Sunday. See Sect. Rawson's letter to Winthrop 3 Mass Hist. Coll. X. 98, and Thomas, Hist. . 274. What day the mo. d. I kn. not; but the unhappy f. liv. to 29 Sept. 1683. THOMAS, a youth of 15, came in the Abigail, 1636, perhaps as serv. to John Winthrop the younger.

GOBAN, if the name be not mistak. DONALD, Boston 1684, mem. of the Scot's charit. soc.

GOBLE , JOHN, Concord, with 8, John foll. their min. Rev. John Jones, n Sept. 1644 to Fairfield. STEPHEN, Concord, was execut. 21 Sept. 1676, and DANIEL, also, execut. 26 of same, for murder of three friendly [[vol. 2, p. 264]] Ind. Such was the hatred borne to the red race, indiscrim. by some, and the strict, impartial admin. of the governm. not foll. always in our days.
