JOHN, Roxbury, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. (very late in his days) 31 May 1683, Sarah, perhaps d. of Peter Gardner, had John, b. 27 Feb. bapt. 2 Mar. 1684; Sarah, 24, bapt. 30 Aug. 1685; perhaps Hannah, 14 Feb. 1688; Ebenezer, 7 Nov. 1689; Abigail, 15 Feb. 1692, d. next yr.; Abigail, again, 26 Oct. 1693; Samuel, 11 Sept. 1695; d. soon; Samuel, [[vol. 2, p. 281]] again, 15 May 1697, d. soon; and Samuel, again, 1 Sept. 1699; d. 26 June 1705.

GORGES, ROBERT, s. of Sir Ferdinando, in Sept. 1693, came over and sat down with sev. fams. at Weymouth, but they were soon willing, to go home, and perhaps very few, if any, contin. for a sec. yr. THOMAS, York, cous. of the preced. neph. of Sir F. came in 1640, was first mayor of the corpo. but went home after three yrs. Winthrop II. 9. In Hutch. I. 176, is a strange tradit. that he came back and d. here. WILLIAM, Saco, ano. neph. of Sir F. deput. with full authority for his governm. of Somersetsh. i. e. all the coast betw. the Kennebeck and Piscataqua riv. came over in 1635, and on new-year's day, 25 Mar. 1636, held his court; but, I imagine, he was soon tired of his office, and went home.

RALPH, Duxbury 1637, prob. came, with s. John, and prob. Ralph, from Benefield, near Oundle, a. six or seven ms. dist. Northamptonsh. But no more is heard of him, so that we may suppose he went home. SHUBAEL, or (as common. writ.) SHOBAL, Barnstable, s. of first John, m.

She is call. on the gr.stone near his, w. of John Gornell, without any refer. to Burge. He had large est. and, as the ch. of his brs. or sis. would not come to partake it, acco. to his bequest, in will of 19 Jan. lG74, the town has enjoy. good portion of the £1648. value.

GORNOCK, DUNCAN, New Haven 1688, a mem. of the ch. then, and his w. Margaret join. 1689; but I can hardly think any ch. of such a name was there.
