GORTON, ABRAHAM, Roxbury, s. of John, m. 31 May 1683, Mary Sumner, had Mary, b. 24 Mar. 1684; and John, 9 Mar. 1686. Perhaps he rem. BENJAMIN, Warwick, youngest s. of the first Samuel, m. 5 Dec. 1672, Sarah, d. of Richard Calder, had Mary, b. Oct. 1673; Maplet; Sarah; Samuel; Benjamin; Alice; and ano. d. The five ds. all m. JOHN, Roxbury, had w. Mary, and d. Mary, wh. d. Aug. 1636; Mary, again, b. 21 June 1611, but bapt. so late as 11 June 1643, d. young; Sarah, bapt. 21 Jan. 1644; Hannah, 5 Apr. 1646, d. 1669, unm.; Mary, again, 3 Sept. 1648; Alicc, 8 Mar. 1652; Elizabeth 30 July 1654, d. soon; John, 16 or 24 Jan. 1656, d. bef. his f.; and Abraham, 8 May 1659. He was freem. 1669, and d. 1676, in his will of 17 June in that yr. names w. s. Abraham, and ds. Sarah, Mary, and Alice. Mary m. 23 May 1665, Daniel Marshcroft. 

JOHN, Warwick, sec. s. of the first Samuel, m. 28 June 1668, Margaret Wheaton, had Othniel, b. [[vol. 2, p. 283]] 22 Sept. 1669; Samuel, 22 July 1672; John; and Benjamin, a. 1681. SAMUEL, Warwick, a. most active relig. disturber of sev. places, b. a. 1600, at Gloton, where, he says, his fam. had been many generat. came to Boston 1636, went soon to Plymouth, thence, in 1638, to Rhode Isl. was adm. an inhab. 27 June of that yr. but in the autumn of 1611 was disquieting Roger Willinms at Providence; in 1643, with Holden, Greene, and others, made the great movem. to purchase of Warwick from the Ind. wh. led to hostile aggress. by the governm. of Mass. who took all his sett. prisoners, and punish. them cruel. not without some hesitat. even sparing their lives. next yr. he went to Eng. with other suffer. and obtain. just assertion of his right, and had peace near thirty yrs. for his adherents in the cloudy doctrines. See good Mem. in R. I. Hist. Coll. Il. by Judge Staples; and critical disquis. by Charles Deane in Genealog. Reg. IV. 201. He had ch. Samuel, John, and Benjamin, beside the ds. Maher, wh. m. Daniel Coles; Mary, wh. m. perhaps, Peter Greene, first, and, next, John Sanford; Sarah, wh. m. William Mace; Ann, wh. m. John Warner; Elizabeth m. John Crandall, and Susanna, m. Benjamin Barton. 

SAMUEL, Warwick, eldest s. of the preced. m. 11 Dec. 1684, Susanna, d. of William Burton, had Samuel, b. 1 June 1690; Hezekiah, 11 June 1692; and Susanna, 4 June 1694; and d. 1724, aged, as report is, 94 yrs. but that may seem greatly exagger. He was old eno. in 1670 to act as interpreter betw. the Eng. and Ind. THOMAS, Portsmouth, R. I. freem. 1655.

GOSIER, BASTIAN, Boston, a strange name of some Huguenot, I suppose, of less importance than most of that noble comp. wh. the earliest ment. of, in our town rec. is under the name of Gazeau, as hav. by w. Elizabeth s. Bartholomew, b. 23 Apr. 1686; William, 19 Aug. 1687; John, 4 Aug. 1689; and Elizabeth Sept. 1690. Perhaps he was invited by the clk. to write, and the sec. ch. appears to be s. of Bastian Geffeere, so that the chirogra. was as difficult to be made out as the sound. In growing towards English, from Gazeau, I give the form wh. is claim. for the two last ch. He may have rem. from B.

GOSMER, JOHN, Southampton, L. I. 1641, took est. Aug. 1665 in Boston, wh. in June 1658, he made over "to his kinswo. Ann, w. of Richard Carter."

GOSNALL, HENRY, Boston 1634, had w. Mary.

GOSNOLD, BARTHOLOMEW, the disting. navigat. s. and heir, as he styles hims. of Anthony G. of Grundisburgh, first nam. in honor of his Sovereign, if he did not discov. the Elizabeth islands, S. W. of Cape Cod, and plant. a small col. on Cuttyhunk 1602, soon giv. up; renew. in 1606, the plant. of Virg. and d. there 22 Aug. of next yr. leav. no issue, unless possib. the last above nam. were a s. wh. is not very likely.

GOSS, EDWARD, Marblehead 1668. JOHN, Watertown, freem. 18 May 1631, came in the fleet, prob. with Winthrop 1630, and w. Sarah, and sev. ch. of wh. Joseph was bur. 10 May 1631, and Elizabeth d. 25 Dec. 1641. He was the man, I think, punish. by very heavy fine for evil speech; and the court, on pet. of w. and childr. represent. his mental distemp. Apr. 1640, confirm. by Phillips, Mayhew, and others, remit. the whole. His name in the freem. list was read as hav. double f. instead of double s. He was bur. Feb. 1644, and his wid. m. Robert Nichols. PHILIP, Roxbury, or, as may seem not unlikely, Muddy riv. as the town rec. does not show his name; the ch. by his w. Hannah Hopkins, bapt. at R. were Philip, 16 Feb. 1679; Hannah, 16 of next mo.; and Mary, 22 Aug. 1680. RICHARD, N. Hampsh. 1689.

GOTOBED, ROBERT, Concord, d. 10 Mar. 1667.

GOTT, *CHARLES, Salem, came in the Abigail with Endicott, Sept. 1628, req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, as freem. and 18 May foll. was rec. was first deac. of the ch. rep. 1635; had Deborah, bapt. 12 Feb. 1637; Charles, June 1639; and Daniel, 28 June 1646; rem. to Wenham, was rep. for this town 1654, and d. 1667 or 8. CHARLES, Wenham, s. of the preced. m. 12 Nov. 1659, Sarah Dennis, wh. d. 8 Aug. 1665, and 25 Dec. foll. he m. Lydia Clark, was freem. 1663; and may have been f. of Charles, the freem. 1682. DANIEL, Wenham, br. of the preced. freem. 1670, m. 2 Jan. 1666, Elizabeth Morris, had Mary, b. 27 Jan. 1667; John, 17 Sept. 1672; and Thomas, 22 July 1675, d. in 2 wks.

Rebecca Cooper, m. at Salem, 15 Aug. 1677, there had Rebecca, b. 25 Aug. 1678; and John, 31 Jan. 1680; but at G. had Dorcas, b. 8 Sept. 1683, rem. to Woburn, there by w. Hannah had Thomas, b. 1689; and his w. d. soon. BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of Thomas of the same, was a witness to some folly in 1692. CHRISTOPHER, Hampton 1660. *DANIEL, Newport, s. of Jeremiah, brot. by his f. in boyhood, a freem. there 1655, accomp. Stephenson and Robinson, hang. as Quakers at Boston, Oct. 1659, to encour. them, and was for that sympathy whip. next mo. See Mass. Coll. Rec. IV. pt. I. p. 411. He was ╥tied to a big gun,╙ he says, to undergo the sentence of thirty stripes from that bigotry, whose folly was almost equal. execra. rep. 1672, m. 18 Dec. 1631, Wait Coggeshall, prob. d. of the first John, had Mary, b. 2 Mar. 1653; Thomas, 20 Feb. 1655; Daniel, 24 Oct. 1656; John, 4 May 1659; Priscilla, 20 June 1661; Jeremy, 5 May 1664; James, 13 Oct. 1666; Jeremy, again, 2 Feb. 1669, d. next yr. Content, 28 Apr. 1671; Wait, 8 May 1676; and I find the date of his d. 26 Mar. 1716, aged a. 90. DANIEL, Newport, s. of the preced. m. Mary, eldest d. of Walter Clark of the same, had s. Daniel, and Jeremiah; but the fam. geneal. makes his w. d. of Thomas, not Walter. 

DANIEL, Reading, one of the early sett. was prob. s. of Zaccheus of Lynn, had w. Elizabeth wh. d. 3 Aug. 1691, says Lewis. He may have been f. of that John of R. wh. a. there 24 Jan. 1712, by gr.stone, as Mr. Eaton finds, and a 69 yrs. DANIEL, Charlestown, perhaps s. of the preced. had w. Dorcas, and d. 25 May 1697, aged a. 42 yrs. His wid. d. 5 June 1730, in 74th yr. EDWARD, Hingham, a pailmaker, came in the Elizabeth from London 1635, aged 28, was of Hawkhurst, Co. Kent; liv. at Boston in 1657. He had Hannah, wh. m. 25 Feb. 1673, or 4, Samuel Hobart. FRANCIS, Chelmsford, had been of Braintree, by w. Rose had at B.

Sarah, m. 24 Sept. 1675, had Sarah; Elizabeth b. 14 Oct. 1677; Jane, 1 Nov. 1679; and Joanna, 19 Nov. 1681. JAMES, Haverhill, took o. of fidel. 28 Nov. 1677. JAMES, Newport, br. of sec. Daniel, m. Catharine, d. of Walter Clarke, had only James, b. 14 June 1696. 

JARVIS, Hingham, cordwainer, came in the Elizabeth 1635, aged 30, serv. to Clement Bates, rem. to Boston, d. 27 May 1656, leav. John. JEREMIAH, R. I. 1638, is in the list of Newport freem. 1655. Aft. d. of his w. Priscilla Grover, wh. h brot. from Eng. he went home, and d. in his native Devonsh. JEREMY, Weymouth 1639. JOHN, a husbandman from Towcester, Northamptonsh. came in the Defence 1635, aged 25, with w. Grace, 25; but no light is found as to his sett. JOHN, Charlestown, had w. Mary in 1636, wh. d. 28 Sept. 1642, and d. Mary, bapt. 29 Jan. 1637; Sarah, 15 Dec. 1637; Elizabeth 17 Feb. 1640; Abigail, 26 Sept. 1642; by ano. w. Hannah, wh. d.15 May 1647, had Hannah, 26 Oct. 1644; and John, 21 Jan. 1647, d. soon. By the same rec. he is favor. with ano. John, 5 Aug. 1648, prob. by ano. w. Joanna, both f. and s. liv. 1678. He may have been one of the early sett. at Reading. He made his will 3 Jan. 1689, and d. 21 Mar. 1691, aged 100, as said; and his wid. Joanna d. 27 Aug. 1697, aged, perhaps, 88. Hannah m. 10 June 1675, Thomas Eliot of Boston. *JOHN, Newport 1655, rep. 1672; but I learn no more of him. 

*JOHN, Topsfield, only s. of Zaccheus, b. a. 1637, in Eng. freem. 1665, the greatest landholder in the neighb. m. 12 or 14 Oct. 1660, Sarah, perhaps d. of John Baker, wh. d. 20 Jan. 1709, had John, b. 1 Dec. 1662; Sarah, 18 Dec. 1664; Thomas, 14 Feb. 1667; Samuel, 9 Ma. 1670; Zaccheus, 26 Mar. 1672; Priscilla, 2 Nov. 1674; Joseph, 24 Aug. 1677; and Mary, 16 June 1681, and he d. perhaps 26 Jan. 1710.

See Hutch. I. 365, and better and fuller acco. in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 150-4. JOHN, Taunton, m. 24 Aug. 1673, Mary, d. of Robert Crossman, had Mary, b. 19 June foll.; Hannah, 9 Nov. 1677.

Oct. 1691; Sarah, b. 8 Sept. bapt. 14 Oct. 1694; Hannah, 19 June 1697; Daniel, 8 Nov. 1699; David, Dec. 1701, bapt. 22 Feb. foll.; Solomon, 19 Mar. 1704; and Lydia, 3 May, bapt. perhaps 8 June 1707. His w. d. 25 Apr. 1718; and he had sec. w. Rose, and d. 5 Nov. 1724. His wid. d. 6 Feb. foll. JOHN, Newport, s. of the first Daniel, m. Sarah Prior, had John, b. 1686; Mary, 29 Nov. 1688; Wait, 28 May 1691; Content, 25 Apr. 1695; and d. 5 Mar. 1704. 

*JOSEPH, Topsfield, youngest br. of the preced. m. 12 Jan. 1713, Priscilla, eldest ch. of Tobijah Perkins, had Priscilla, b. 6, bapt. 11 Apr. 1714; Joseph, wh. d. young; Amos, wh. d. bef. his f.; Ruth; May; Sarah; and Joseph; beside two or three ch. wh. d. young; was capt. rep. and d. Apr. 1753. His will of 21 Mar. preced. pro. 23 Apr. foll. [[vol. 2, p. 286]] names w. and five ch. NATHAN, Fairfield 1652, m. Martha, wid. of Edmund Harvey, an Assist. 1657, and every yr. but one foll. was nam. for same rank in the Royal Chart. of 1662; in 1670 was the richest inhab. He wrote his surname without u but perhaps the universal pronuncia. caused the change. He d. 4 Mar. 1694, in his will of three days preced. names only s. Nathan, and ds. Sarah, w. of John Thompson; Deborah, w. of George Clark; Abigail, w. of Jonathan Selleck; and Martha, wid. of John Selleck; his w. hav. d. bef. His s. 

NATHAN, of Fairfield, dep.-gov. in 1707, was made Ch. J. of the Sup. Ct. 1712, nd d. early, prob. in Nov. 1723, as the inv. of his est. bears date of 14 of that mo. He had m. Hannah, d. of John Talcott the sec. of Hartford, had John, Nathan, Samuel, Onesimus, David, Joseph, Hezekiah, H. C. 1719, min. of Stratford, and a d. of unkn. name, wh. m. Rev. Thomas Hawley of Ridgefield, who all had shares in his est. The fam. has, in our day, been emin. for public serv. NATHAN, Salisbury 1660, by w. Elizabeth had Mary, b. 20 June 1661; Elizabeth 4 Apr. 1664; and Samuel, 3 Feb. 1668; was of Amesbury 1690, and freem. that yr. in his vill of 12 Dec. 1692, names w. Elizabeth and ch. Joseph, Elizabeth Hannah, and Samuel. NATHANIEL, Milford 1646, may be only a mistake of Lambert, as other inquir. find not such person there. ROBERT, Hull, m. 1666, Judith, and had sec. w. Jane Smith, a wid. d. of Thomas Harris of Boston; was freem. 1 680. SAMUEL, Topsfield, s. of the first John of the same, m. 20 Apr. 1694, Margaret Stone, whose f. is unkn. had Sarah, b. 25 Feb. 1698, wh. d. unm. 21 Feb. 1786; Samuel, bapt. 6 Apr. 1701; Moses; Jonathan, 4 Sept. 1709; Patience; Margaret; Zaccheus, a. 1716; and Hubbard; and d. 1724, his will of 26 Nov. in that yr. being pro. 21 Dec. foll. Perhaps he liv. late in life at Boxford. THOMAS, Boston, came in the Jonathan 1639, aged 32, may have been the freem. of 2 June 1641, but he was not of Boston ch. so that it is doubtful; but perhaps was first of Cambridge, and by w. Mary had Jacob, b. 16 Sept. 1643; d. 26 Oct. 1662. THOMAS, Newport 1655, m. Elizabeth d. of William Balstone, wh. had been, the former yr. divorc. from John Coggeshall, may have been many yrs. of Wickford 1674. 

THOMAS, Charlestown, with w. Hannah, join. to the ch. 1640, had Hannah, bapt. 11 Apr. 1641, he a 1665, bec. a Bapt. was long imprison. for his falling off, but ultimate. discharg. with reput. He had sec. w. Mary bef. all his troubles were over; but I kn. not if bef. or after he gather. the first Bapt. ch. of B. and C. in May 1665. He d. Apr. 1674, prob. at Boston, and in his will, with codic. of 25, pro. 30 that mo. names w. Mary, s. Samuel, ds. Mary, w. of Thomas Skinner, Mehitable, w. of James Goodwin, Mary Bunker, and her two ch. Abigail Shapley, s. Nathaniel Hayward, and d. Hannah wh. m. Thomas Whinyard, and liv. at London. The vols. of Backus, I. 414, Benedict, I. 385, Frothingham, and Budington may be profitab. consult. Ano.

[[vol. 2, p. 287]] THOMAS, of Charlestown in 1652, with w. Hannah joining the ch. that yr. may have been s. of John, unless I have been confus. by two ws. of one. THOMAS, Boston, m. 10 Sept. 1636, Frances Robinson, had Thomas, b. 27 Nov. 1659; prob. other ch. beside Ann, b. a. 1685, wh. m. 27 Feb. 1703, Nathaniel Green. THOMAS, Salem, by w. Elizabeth had Joseph, b. 15 Jan. 1663; Thomas, 16 Sept. 1664, d. young; James, 8 Feb. 1666; Thomas, again, 26 Feb. 1668; Benjamin, 26 Aug. 1669; and Samuel, 6 Feb. 1670. THOMAS, Newport, eldest s. of Daniel, m. Elizabeth d. of Jacob Mott, had Priscilla, b. Feb. 3 1693; Mary, 13 Dec. 1694; Daniel, 18 Dec. 1696; Thomas, 1 Dec. 1698; Joanna, 24 Oct. 1700; Jacob, 21 Nov. 1704; Elizabeth 4 May 1707; John, 15 Feb. 1709; and James, 5 July 1711; and d. 11 May 1734. His wid. d. 22 Mar. 1749. THOMAS, Topsfield, s. of the first John of the same, m. perhaps Mercy, d. of the sec. William Sumner, had Thomas, b. 4, bapt. 14 Sept. 1701; Jacob, b. 16 Jan. 1703; Deborah, 17 Nov. 1704, d. in few mos.; Deborah, again, 23 Sept. 1707; Simon, 8 Mar. 1710 ; Mercy, 17, bapt. 27 Jan. 1712; Yates, 24 Mar. bapt. 4 Apr. 1714; Benjamin, 29 May, bapt. 3 June 1716; and Nathaniel, 9 Nov. 1718; and d. 9 June 1751, acc. rec. of ch. but 4 July 1752, by town rec. His wid. d. 8 May 1763. ZACCHEUS, Lynn 1640, had, says Lewis, s. Daniel, b. a. 1650, wh. went, I suppose, with other of his neighb. to Reading. 

ZACCHEUS, Weymouth 1639. ZACCHEUS, Ipswich 1644 (in that pt. wh. soon was incorp. as Topsfield), came from Hants Green, near Potter's Row, in Co. Bucks, a parish, seen on the map, a. 33 miles from London, near Gr. Missenden, left good est. to only s. John, and four ds. perhaps, both at Rowley and Topsfield. His d. Phebe m. Thomas Perkins; Martha m. John Newmarch; Mary m. a (prob. Abraham) Redington, and Priscilla m. John Wild, wh. strange as it may appear, was a witness against her br. ZACCHEUS, Topsfield, s. of the first John of the same, m. 21 Jan. 1702, Elizabeth Curtis, but whose d. she was is unkn. had Elizabeth b. 13 Feb. 1703; Mary, 11 Mar. 1705; Priscilla, 4 Aug. 1707; John, 29 Jan. 1710; Sarah, 28 Jan. 1712; Abigail, 12 Aug. bapt. 25 Sept. 1715; Zaccheus, 7 Nov. 1717; Eliezer, 29 May, bapt. 17 July 1720; and Susanna, 11 Feb. bapt. 28 Apr. 1723; and d. 1739, in his will of 16 Apr. of that yr. pro. 28 May foll. names all the nine ch. as alive. From this br. of the ancest. tree descends Benjamin A. wh. so many of the scholars of Boston honor as their instruct. in the classics. Six of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. fourteen at Yale, and three at other coll. of N. E.

GOULDEN, or GOLDEN, ROGER, R. I. 1676, capt. of a vessel, did serv. in Philip's war, especial. on 12 Aug. 1676, when the gr. adversa. was k. m. Penelope, d. prob. youngest of the first Benedict Arnold.

GOULDER, FRANCIS, Plymouth 1643, d. 17 May 1664. Catharine, prob. his w. or d. there d. 16 Mar. 1651.

GOURDING, ABRAHAM, Boston 1672, mariner.

GOVE, or GOAVE, EBENEZER, Hampton, s. of Edward, m. 20 Dec. 1692, Judith Sanborn, had Jeremiah, b. 20 Mar. 1695; Edward, 29 May 1696; Sarah, 3 Apr. 1698; Judith, 18 Feb. 1701; Ebenezer, 15 Feb. 1703; Lydia, 3 Feb. 1705; Enoch, 28 Oct. 1708; Hannah, 20 Jan. 1711; Nathan, 30 Dec. 1713; Mary, 18 Apr. 1716; and Rachel, 26 Apr. 1718; and he d. 1758. *EDWARD, Hampton, rep. in the first [[vol. 2, p. 288]] assemb. of N. H. 1680, raised insurrect. 1682 against the royal gov. Cranfield; but being insane or drunk, perhaps both, and unsupport. by other patriots, was tak. convict. of treason, sentenc. to d. and ship. from Boston to London, where he was kept in gaol some yrs. At last he was let off, being, not of suffic. import. to suffer for so dignified an offence, and his est. restor. 

Full story of this folly is in Belkn. I. 98-100, and briefer in Chalmers, Polit. Ann. 495-6. He was first of Salisbury, there had John, b. 19 Sept. 1661; William, 21 Oct. 1662, d. next yr.; Hannah, Mar. 1664; and at H. had Mary, 14 Apr. 1666, wh. m. 28 Dec. 1682, Joseph Sanborn; Abigail; Peniel; both d. soon; Abigail, again, 17 Apr. 1670, wh. m. 25 Sept 1690, Philemon Dalton of Hampton; Ebenezer, 23 June 1671; Edward, d. soon; Jeremiah, 3 Oct. 1674, d. at 18 yrs.; Ann, 9 Jan. 1677, m. 3 July 1696, Jeremiah Conner; and Sarah, 5 Nov. 1678, wh. m. 16 Dec. 1698, Samuel Dearborn. He d. 29 July 1691, and his wid. Hannah d. after 1712. GEORGE, Dover 1667 and 8, prob. capt. in 1696. JOHN, Charlestown, was, I suppose, a merch. who had not long been inhab. in his will of 22 Jan. 1648, made very shortly bef. he d. names ch. John, Edward, and Mary, giv. the last to Ralph Mousall to bring up. 

JOHN, Cambridge, prob. br. of Edward, m. 6 Oct. 1658, Mary, perhaps d. of William Aspinwall, wh. d. 14 Nov. 1676, had Mary, b. 14 Sept. 1659; John, 21 Sept. 1660; both bapt. 8 Mar. 1661, for she had unit. with the ch. three days bef.; Aspinwall, 2, bapt. 6 Oct. 1661, d. in few days; Nathaniel, bapt. 16 Nov. 1662; James, 13 Dec. 1663, d. young; Nathaniel, again, 4 Aug. 1667; he m. sec. w. 15 Mar. 1677, Mary Woodhead, had Jonathan, b. 19 Jan. 1678, wh. d. 11 Oct. 1681; Jonathan, again, 3 May 1682; and Sarah, 28 Aug. 1686. His s. John d. 28 Apr. 1679; his w. d. 11 Sept. 1700; and he m. third w. 2 Dec. 1700, wid. Elizabeth Walden, and d. 21 Nov. 1704, aged a. 77. It is thot. that John, his f. came to C. a. 1653, bring. Edward and John; this last, constable at C. 1667, being, then call. junr. and perhaps the f. d. 16 Jan. 1682.
