GRAZILLIER, EZEKIEL, Boston, prob. a Huguenot, who by w. Mary had Ezekiel, b. 8 Oct. 1688. In reasona. conject. as his name does not appear among taxpayers 1695, he rem. perhaps to the S.

GRELE, or GREELEY, ANDREW, Salisbury, an orig. propr. by w. Mary had Philip, b. 21 Sept. 1644; Andrew, 10 Dec. 1646; Mary, 16 July 1649; Joseph, 5 Feb. 1652; and Benjamin, 9 Dec. 1654; was of Haverhill 1669, and d. 30 June 1697. ANDREW, Salisbury, s. of the preced. m. 12 June 1673, Sarah, d. of Henry Brown, had Andrew, b. 8 Oct. 1674, wh. d. at S. 16 Nov. 1693; Henry, 28 Sept. 1676; Mary, 5 Dec. 1678; Abigail, 24 June 1681; Sarah, 21 Oct. 1685; Rachel, 19 May 1688; Hannah, 29 July 1692; and Judith, 13 June 1696; was freem. 1690, and d. 26 Nov,. 1736. JOSEPH, Haverhill 1677, s. prob. of the first Andrew, took o. of alleg. 11 Dec. of that yr. NATHANIEL, Salisbury 1649, perhaps br. of the first Andrew. PHILIP, Salisbury, s. of the first Andrew, m. 17 Feb. 1670, Hannah, d. prob. of John Ilsley, had John, b. 16 Jan. 1671; Jonathan, 15 Feb. 1673; Sarah, 21 Mar. 1676; Mary, 5 June 1679; Philip, 25 Dec. 1681; Joseph, 24 Nov. 1683; and Ruth, 3 Oct. 1684. He was freem. 1690.

GREEN, ABRAHAM, Hampton 1678. BARTHOLOMEW, Cambridge, [[vol. 2, p. 300]] freem. 14 May 1634, came the yr. bef. and d. the yr. foll. when mak. prepar. to rem. with major part of his neighb. to Conn. as is said; but his wid. Elizabeth wh. d. 28 Oct. 1677, aged 88, and ch. Samuel, Nathaniel, Sarah, w. of Thomas Longhorn, and Phebe, were all of Cambridge ch. 1658. BARTHOLOMEW, Boston, youngest ch. of the first Samuel of Cambridge, was a printer of no small note for issue of the first newspaper on our contin. Apr. 1704, and so in our time more thot. of than his f. for the wonderful Bible. He was deac. of the third or Old S. ch. and d. 28 Dec. 1732. Next Thursday the newspaper from his office contain. an compact. memoir, in wh. his f. is made to vouch, perhaps unduly, for sev. things, among others, nineteen ch. eleven by first w. eight by sec. when by the rec. We are led to count seven by one, Six by the other. Even the birthday of the propr. may be thot. a yr. too early. 

BARTHOLOMEW, Charlestown, s. of the first Jacob of the same, by w. Maria, d. of Rev. Increase Mather, had s. Mather and d. Maria, bapt. 15 Oct. 1693; may have had no more. BENJAMIN, Warwick, s. of the first Thomas of the same, m. Susanna, seventh d. of Randall Houlden, had Benjamin. CHARLES, Marblehead 1668. DANIEL, Wickford 1671, own. jurisdict. of R. I. 20 May of that yr. with other inhab. of that Narraganset country, was prob. the same wh. by w. Rebecca had Peleg, b. 1690; Daniel, 1692; Jonathan, 1694; Rebecca, 1696; Rachel, 1698; Sarah, 1700; and Jonathan, again, 1705. But wh. was his f. is not seen. DAVID, Providence, s. by his sec. w. of the first James, m. a Slocum, perhaps d. of Giles the sec. had David; and by sec. w. wh. was a Barber, had Jonathan, Joseph, and sev. ds. HENRY, Reading, call. by Winthrop "a scholar," but we kn. not at wh. of the Universit. he was bred, had been, in 1643, invit. to go to Martha's Vineyard by its first sett. but went not, m. Frances, eldest d. of deac. Simon Stone, had Joanna and Nathaniel; and was the earliest min. of R. ord. 5 Nov. 1645, and d. 11 Oct. 1648. His wid. m. as the will of f. shows. 

HENRY, Ipswich 1641, was perhaps the freem. of 13 May 1640, for I can hardly suppose it possible, tho. Farmer gave it without suspicion, that the Rev. Henry would have failed of his prefix of respect from the secr. HENRY, Hampton 1644, was, perhaps, the couns. to the tyranny of Cranfield 1685, m. 1691, prob. for sec. or third w. wid. Martha Page, and d. 5 Aug. 1700, aged a. 80. HENRY, Malden, s. of the first Thomas, m. 11 Jan. 1672, Esther Hasey, perhaps d. of William had Henry, b. Jan. 1673; Esther, Sept. 1674; Lydia, 11 Aug. 1685; Jacob, 9 May 1689, beside Joseph, Daniel, and Dorcas, prob. all bef. Lydia, and he d. 19 Sept. 1717. His wid. d. 1740. 

HENRY, Wickford 1674. ISAAC, Salisbury 1678, freem. 1690. JABEZ, Providence, br. of David of the same, m. 16 May 1697, Mary, d. of Benjamin Barton, had James, Jabez, Nathaniel, Benjamin, Rufus, John, and a d. by first w. and ano. d. by sec. w. Nathaniel, his s. was f. of the [[vol. 2, p. 301]] Gen. Nathaniel of the army of the Revo. JACOB, Charlestown, s. of John of the same, b. in Eng. came with him, had w. Elizabeth wid. of the sec. Robert Long, and ch. Jacob, b. 11 Oct. 1654; Joseph, wh. d. 26 Aug. 1657; John; Mary, s bapt. 13 May 1662; Bartholomew, 14 Feb. 1664; Dorcas, 31 Dec. 1665; Joseph, again, 5 Apr. 1668; ar. co. 1650, freem. 1650, was rep. 1677. He had sec. w. Mary, wid. of Matthew Whipple, d. of William Bartholomew. JACOB, Charlestown, s. of the first Jacob, by w. Mary Robinson had Caleb, bapt. 29 Apr. 1683; Dorcas, 14 Dec. 1684; Joseph, 14 Aug. 1687; Mary, 29 July 1688; Joseph, again, 15 May 1690; Benjamin, 26 May 1695; Bartholomew, 29 Nov. 1696; and Joseph, again, 22 Oct. 1699. JAMES, Charlestown 1634, freem. 1647, and of course his name is among the mem. of the ch. yet not found among householders; had w. Elizabeth s. John, and James, liv. on Mistick side, and a. 29 Mar. 1687, aged 77. 

JAMES, Warwick, s. of John the first of Providence, b. in Eng. was freem. 1655, m. Deliverance Potter, d. of Robert; had sec. w. Elizabeth d. of John Anthony; d. 27 Apr. 1698. He is call. the progenit. of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, the soldier of the Revo. By the first w. he had James, b. 6 June 1658; Mary, 8 Sept. 1660; Elisha, 7 Mar. 1662; and Sarah, 27 Aug. 1663; and by the sec. m. 3 Aug. 1665, Peter, 25 t Aug. 1666; Elizabeth 17 Oct. 1668, John, 1 Feb. 1671, d. young; Jabez, 17 May 1673; David, 24 June 1677; Thomas, 11 Nov. 1682; John, again, 30 Sept. 1685; and Susanna, wh. may have been b. bef. either of the last two, beings ment. in the will of her f. as under age of 18. Mary m. 19 Feb. 1685, James Reynolds of Narraganset; Sarah m. Henry . Reynolds; and Elizabeth m. a Reynolds, perhaps br. of other two, tho. I have seen a geneal. that says she m. a Hull. JAMES, Boston, s. of James the first, a cooper, but at Dorchester m. 19 Nov. 1661, Rebecca, d. of Thomas Jones, had Elizabeth b. 14 Nov. 1662; James, 15 Dec. 1664; Thomas, 2 Jan. 1667; Richard, 7 Apr. 1669; John, 24 Feb. 1672; Esther, 27 Sept. 1674; and Samuel, 20 July 1680; was freem. 1683, and by w. Ann had Rebecca, 19 May 1688. He rem. a. 1710, to Barnstable, there d. a. 1731. JAMES, Portsmouth, R. I. mariner, sold Id. there 1669. 

JAMES, Warwick, eldest s. of the first James of the same, m. 29 Jan. 1689, Mary, d. of capt. John Fones of Kingstown, had Fones, James, Daniel, Elisha, John, Jeremiah, Samuel, Mercy, Deliverance, and Mary. JOB, Warwick, s. of the first John of the same, m. a Sayles, d. perhaps, of first John, had Job, Christopher, Daniel, Philip, Amy, Phebe, Mary, and Catharine. JOHN, Charlestown, came in the James from London 1632, arr. 12 June, with w. Perseverance and three ch. John, Jacob, Abigail, Sarah Jones, a serv. and Joseph Greene, of whom we may presume that he was a relat. perhaps apprent. Winthrop says the sh. brot. twelve passeng. and in the Custom ho. paper we have the names of two, beside VOL. II. [[vol. 2, p. 302]] the seven here ment. His w. was d. of Rev. Francis Johnson, it is said, a puritan of eminence, who had fled to Amsterdam. She with her h. join. the ch. 29 Mar. 1633, and he was made freem. three days after, call. on the rec. serg. but his milit. distinct. was sunk in the more import. title of ruling elder, the only one Charlestown ch. ever had; was some time town clk. and selectman twelve yrs. begin. in 1646, d. 22 Apr. says the gr.stone or May 1658, aged 65. His will of 21 Apr. of that yr. names w. Joanna, wid. of John Shatswell of Ipswich, and as she had brot. him good est. that had lessened in his hands, he gave her most of his prop. He names in it gr.s. John and Jacob, s. of his s. Jacob, gr.d. Joanna, ch. 

I suppose, of Richard Shatswell of Ipswich, call. by him s.-in-law, had three ch. at Charlestown, but lost three also, and the surv. were John, Jacob, and Mary, this last b. 1, bapt. 6 Apr. 1634. So much was this name early spread at Malden, that in the remonstrance against the action of the Gen. Ct. upon the case of Rev. Mr. Matthews, their min. sign. by thirty-six females, in 1651, three were nam. Elizabeth and one, Margaret, Green. JOHN, Roxbury, liv. with Daniel Brewer, d. bef. 14 Feb. 1639. JOHN, Providence 1636, may be that surg. who came from Southampton in the James, a. 6 Apr. and arr. at Boston 3 June 1635, had been of Salisbury, in Wilts; brot. w. and five ch. John, b. 1620; Peter; James, 1629; Thomas, 1631; and Mary, prob. older than the last two. He partook largely in the exertions of Gorton and his friends to obtain security for their worldly as well as spirit. rights, and went to negotiate in London in 1644 for Narraganset, of wh. Warwick was the chief settlem. with full success; and d. betw. 28 Dec. 1658, the date of his will, and 7 Jan. next, when it was pro. The w. brot. from Eng. mo. of all the ch. d. 1643, at Conanicut, where she had sought refuge in conseq. of her suffer. when the Mass. forces came to Gorton's planta. and took him and all his adher. prisoners. A sec. w. was Alice Daniels m. in Eng. but ch. is not heard of, nor by third w. Philippa, wh. d. 1687, aged 87. Mary m. James Sweet. The farm on wh. he was bur. is still enjoy. by his descend. 

JOHN, who came in the Francis from Ipswich, in Co. Suffk. 1634, aged 27, may have been of Salem, d. early, leav. wid. to h. Felt says gr. of ld. was made in 1638, but that diligent writer, I. 516, thot. the husband was of the comp. in the James from Southampton a yr. later. In aid of that conject. perhaps rather slight, is the fact, that six or seven of the passeng. in the more recent sh. bec. inhabs. of Salem. But it is easy to mistake with so common bapt. and surnames. JOHN, Charlestown, s. prob. of first John, b. in Eng. was adm. of the ch. 17 Apr. 1642, and freem. 18 May foll. He digested, from sev. verbal stories, the acco. of settlem. of, the town, wh. has remarkably misled Prince and other inquirers. The first seven [[vol. 2, p. 303]] pages, so far from being a contempo. rec of exact facts, begin with relation, more or less minute, of what took place thirty-five yrs. earlier. See Young's Chron. of Mass. 387. He had been serv. of William Willoughby at Portsmouth, Eng. and after was of his s. Francis our dept.-gov. JOHN, Sandwich 1643, made his will 29 Feb. 1660, d. soon after. 

JOHN, New Haven, had John, b. 26 Dec. 1651. A wid. G. among early sett. at N. H. was perhaps his mo. JOHN, Kittery 1652, subm. to jurisdict. of Mass. that yr. JOHN, Fairfield 1648, made freem. 1662, had good est. JOHN, Stamford, was rep. 1668-71, and perhaps later. JOHN, a freem. of Mass. 1654, may have been of Malden or Cambridge. JOHN, Warwick, eldest s. of the first John of Providence, b. in Eng. came 1635 with his f. freem. 1655, m. Ann, d. of William Almy, had Peter, William, Job, Samuel, Richard, and four ds. of wh. Ann m. her cous. Thomas Green; one m. prob. Joseph Torry of Newport; Catharine m. Charles Holden; and perhaps Susanna m. John Spencer; was a propr. of Westerly 1661, one of the counc. to Sir Edmund Andros 1687, was major, dep.-gov. 1690-1700, and d. 1708. JOHN, Narragansett 1664, mark. senr. seems to render it necessary to count ano. John to be junr. there at that time, and it may be that one or both went thither from Newport; or he may be the s. perhaps youngest, of the first James wh. m. 16 Feb. 1711, Mary, d. of Increase Allen (but that surname is too common to permit to guess wh.), and had, as the fam. report says, David, James, Increase, Job, beside sev. ds. 

JOHN, Salem, m. 7 Dec. 1659, Mary Warren, had Abigail, b. 22 Feb. 1661; Mary, 1 Mar. 1664; Sarah, 14 Dec. 1666; Elizabeth 20 Feb. 1668; and John, 28 June 1672. JOHN, Sudbury, a capt. in 1674.

JOHN, Dover or Portsmouth, m. 12 Sept. 1666, Mary Jenkins, d. of Robert, ps, or Henry. JOHN, Cambridge, only s. of Percival of the same, 20 Oct. 1656, Ruth, d. of Edward Michelson, had John, b. 24 July 1657. Nathaniel, 25 Sept. 1658; Percival, b. 29 Mar. bapt. 1 Apr. 1660, H. C. 1680, first in the catal. of this copious name; Ruth, 24 Nov. 1661; Samuel, b. 4, bapt. 10 May 1663; Elizabeth 22 Apr. 1665, bapt. next day; and Edward, 15, bapt. 21 Apr. 1667; as in Mitchell's Reg. appears, and, after the termin. of that, had Thomas, b. 7 Mar. 1669; Jonathan; Bethia, 20 Jan. 1673; Joseph, 24 Oct. 1675, H. C. 1695; Benjamin, 13 Aug. 1677; and Mary; Michelson, also, 14 Mar. who d. inf. 21 Oct. 1681. He succeed. his f.-in-law as marshal of the Col. and d. 3 Mar. 1692, aged 55. His wid. m. Samuel Champney. His s. John was tak. 1681, by the Turks, as we learn from the Diary of Noadiah Russell, sub. 20 Apr. 1682. Edward was a shipmaster, d. 1696, unm. Bethia m. Joseph Hicks, and d. 12 Apr. 1708. 

JOHN, Malden 1673, mariner, elder br. of James of Boston, freem. 1683, by w. [[vol. 2, p. 304]] Mary had Mary, b. Dec. 1668; Samuel, 1679, beside Elizabeth and Hannah, and d. 22 Mar. 1709. JOHN, Newport, m. Mary, eldest d. of William Jeffrey, is, perhaps, one who was inhab. 1655; and ano. JOHN, adm. at Newport 1668, may have been his s. John, Woburn, m. 3 July 1671, Sarah, d. of John Bateman of Boston, had Sarah, b. 6 June 1672; Samuel, 29 Jan. 1674; John, 6 Jan. 1677; Hannah, 4 Mar. 1679; and perhaps he rem. JOHN, Boston, may have been s. of Ralph, freem. 1690. JOHN, Stow, s. of Jacob the first, d. 1688, unm. JONAS, New London 1694, a shipmaster, of whose fam. I am igno. m. Jane, d. of Alexander Pygan, had Samuel, and perhaps other ch. 

JOSEPH, Plymouth 1643. JOSEPH, Weymouth, may be he who came 1632 in the James, with first John of Charlestown, by w. Elizabeth d. of John Whitman of same, m. May 1657, had Joseph, b. 2 Apr. 1658; John, 16 July 1661; Elizabeth 5 Apr. 1664; Mary, 15 Aug. 1667; and Zechary, 7 Apr. 1671.

Joseph Gerrish of Wenham, had Ann, b. 27 Nov. 1699; a ch. 11 Jan. 1701, H.

William Brattle. NATHANIEL, Cambridge, s. of Bartholomew, b. in Eng. freem. 1645, had w. Joanna. 

NATHANIEL, Boston, m. 22 June 1657, Mary, d. of Jeremy Houchin, had Jeremiah, b. 29 Dec. 1659; was freem. 1665.

The inv. was of 23 July in that yr. NICHOLAS, is the name of a soldier in Moseley's comp. Dec. 1675. PERCIVAL, Cambridge, br. it is suppos. of Bartholomew the first, came in the Susan and Ellen 1635, aged 32, with w. Ellen, 32, and two serv. freem. 3 Mar. 1636, in the col. list whimsical. pervert. to Passevil, had John, b. June 1636; and Elizabeth Apr. 16.39; d. 25 Dec. 1639, when the town rec. makes the name Perceiveall. His wid. Ellen, m. Thomas Fox; and d. Elizabeth m. 4 Apr. 1656, John Hall of Concord, and d. 14 Feb. 1714. Thomas, in Hist. of Print. I. 235, has confus. I think, the childr. of Bartholomew and Percival. 

PERCIVAL, Cambridge, gr.s of the preced. the earliest gr. of this fam. [[vol. 2, p. 305]] name at Harv. a preach. d. 10 July 1684. PETER, Warwick, s. of first John of Providence, b. in Eng. came with his f.; m. it is said, Mary, d. of Samuel Gorton, was freem. 1655, and d. 1659, by drown. without issue. His wid. m. prob. John Sanford. PETER, Warwick, s. of John the first of Warwick, m. 16 Dec. 1680, Elizabeth d. of Stephen Arnold, had Peter, John, William, Stephen, Elisha, Barbara, and ano. d. said to have m. Stephen Arnold, not her cous. PETER, Warwick, s. of James the first of the same (perhaps eldest, by his sec. w.), m. a Slocum, had sevr. ch. and was drown. (wh. may only be the story of first Peter, his uncle), as the geneal. reports without giv. any names of ch. 

RALPH, Boston, had John, b. 22 Dec. 1642, perhaps rem. to Malden, and there had a c h. b. Jan. 1654. RICHARD, Plymouth, came in the Charity 1622 for Weston's planta. at Weymouth, being br.-in-l. of W. d. soon after landing. See Winslow's Good News from N. E. in Young's Chron. of the Pilgr. 299. || RICHARD, Boston, mariner, perhaps ar. co. 1638, but I doubt the rec. as he was not adm. inhab. bef. 1654; by w. Rebecca had Rebecca, b. 7 Aug. 1665; and he d. early in 1672. RICHARD, Warwick, s. perhaps youngest, of the first John of the same, m. a Sayles, had John, Audrey, Amy, Isabel, Eleanor, and Mary. RICHARD, Warwick, . of the first Thomas of the same, m. a Carder of the same, whether n d. or gr.d. of Richard is unkn. had Richard, Thomas, Mary, Elizabeth and Welthean. ROBERT, Wickford 1674. 

ROBERT, Hingham, m. Oct. 1666, Elizabeth Nichols. SAMUEL, Cambridge, eldest s. of first Bartholomew, in Eng. came prob. with his f. 1632, tho. a foolish tradit. is in print of his coming with Gov. Dudley, and after reach. N. E. tak. "empty casks to shelter them from the weather;" was freem. 4 Mar. 1635, and made not bred, a printer (as is well seen in Thomas's Hist.), d. 1 Jan. 2, aged 87, or, we may believe, something less. By his first w. Jane, of Guy Bainbridge, wh. d. 16 Nov. 1657, he had Elizabeth b. 16 Apr. 0; ' Sarah, 7 Oct. 1642; Lydia, 23 Mar. 1645, d. soon; Lydia, again, 13 Apr. 1646; Samuel, 6 Mar. 1648; Joseph, 7 Nov. 1649; and Deborah, 19 Mar. 1655; and by sec. w. Sarah, d. of Elder Jonas Clark, m. 23 Feb. 1662, had Jonas, bapt. 31 Jan. 1664; Lydia, again, 12 Nov. 1665; Elizabeth b. 3 Nov. 1665 (as by the rec.) d. very soon; Bartholomew, 26 Oct. bapt. 3 Nov. 1667; Mary, b. 6 Nov. 1669; and Dorcas, 6 Sept. 1671. He was town clk. some yrs. capt. of the town milit. thirty yrs. and engag. at the press fifty yrs the greatest work, in conjunct. with Marmaduke Johnson (sent from London by the Soc. for Prop. Gospel), the Ind. Bible. He is spoken of by John Dunton, in "Life and Errors," with gr. kindness. 

SAMUEL, Warwick, s. of John the first of the same, m. it is said, a Gorton, but that may be a mistake for his uncle Peter; but he had Mary, William, wh. bec. the Gov. of the Col. [[vol. 2, p. 306]] Samuel, and Benjamin. SAMUEL, Boston, s. as Mr. Paige thinks, of John the marshal, of the first Samuel, m. Nov. 1685, Elizabeth d. of capt. Joseph Sill, was f. of Timothy, one of the earliest printers in Conn. and progenit. of a line in that art, d. July 1690 of the smallpox, as did his w. at same time. SAMUEL, Malden, freem. 1690, s. of the first Thomas of the same, m. 1666, Mary, only ch. of Richard Cook of the same, had Samuel, b. Jan. 1668; Thomas, 1669; John, 1 Apr. 1672; William, Aug. 1674; Martha, 1683; Elizabeth 16 Nov. 1687; Isaac, 20 May 1690; beside Mary, David, and Jonathan. He had sec. w. Susanna, but the first w. liv. to 24 Nov. 1715; and he d. 31 Oct. 1724. 

THOMAS, Ipswich 1648, may have been br. of Henry of the same; but as nothing is ever heard of either, they may be only casual visitors. THOMAS, Malden, had w. Elizabeth wh. d. Aug. 1658, and he m. 5 Sept. 1659, Frances, wid. of Richard Cook, wh. had been wid. of Isaac Wheeler, but prob. by former w. only had ch. Thomas, the eldest; 3 John, b. a. 1632; William, a. 1635; Henry, Nov. 1638; all prob. b. in Eng. Samuel, Apr. 1645; beside Elizabeth Mary, perhaps both brot. from Eng.; Hannah; Martha; and Dorcas, 1 May 1653; and he d. 19 Dec. 1667. Hannah m. 5 Nov. 1666, Joseph Richardson of Woburn.
