*MATTHEW, Saybrook, younger br. of Edward, and perhaps of first Francis, came from Warwicksh. Kenilworth being his native place, and possib. with Rev. Ephraim Huit, m. Ann, d. of first Henry Wolcott, had two s. and three ds. but the dates of b. are unkn. except that Matthew, perhaps not the eldest, was b. 1653; was rep. of S. often, and of Lyme after the div. of the old town; call. hims. 66 yrs. old in 1684, and d.

The first two, and last five are nam. in his will. SAMUEL, Norwich, only s. of sec.

THOMAS, Windsor, s. of George, m. 11 or 16 Aug. 1681, Esther, d. of Job Drake, wh. d. 19 Feb. 1692, had Thomas, b. 10 Dec. 1682; Samuel, 7 Aug. 1685; Hezekiah, 1688, and Esther, Jan. 1690. Twenty-three of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Yale, and seven at other N. E. coll. exc. Harv.

GROOM, NICHOLAS, Mass. d. 1651, and Henry G. (I kn. not whether f. br. or s.) had admin. of his est. in Middlesex Co. Samuel, Salisbury 1650, a mariner, in the list of inhabs. dignified with prefix of Mr. went home to London bef. 1658. He may seem to be that Quaker, who publ. in 1676, "A Glass for the people of N. E." wh. in a note to his Hist. I. 72, Hutchinson ascrib. to Gorton.

GROSSE, CLEMENT, Boston, s. of Isaac, b. in Eng. was a brewer, m. bef 1649, had Isaac, who was a cordwinder; when, in 1678, the f. is call. innholder, allow. to be 1658; by w. Mary had Edmund, b. 9 Mar. 1656; and Elizabeth 5 Mar. 1659; a former Elizabeth hav. d. 1 Sept. 1656; William, 3 Mar. 1665; Edmund, again, 27 Sept. 1669; and Ann, 18 Mar. 1671; but in 1695 no male of this or other line was a taxable inhab. of Boston, tho. a wid. Grosse is found. EDMUND, Boston, elder br. of the preced. mariner, by w. Catharine had Isaac, b. 1 Oct. 1642; Susanna, Aug. 1644; both bapt. 23 Mar. 1645; perhaps Thomas; Hannah; Lydia, bapt. 10 Mar. 1650; by w. Ann had Mary, b. 9 Sept. 1652; Elizabeth 30 Jan. 1654; John, 21 Apr. 1655. He d. 1 May after, and his will, in wh. he provides for w. and ch. Isaac, and Susan only, was pro. 3 May 1655, and set aside by ch. 25 May. His d. Lydia m. I presume, George Harris of Concord. 

EDMUND, Boston, m. 19 Feb. 1695, Dorothy, d. of Josiah Belcher. He was s. of Clement, and had, I think, no ch. ISAAC, Boston 1685, call. husbandman, when adm. of the ch. 17 Apr. 1636, disarm. 1637, as a friend of the antinomians, Cotton and Wheelwright, follow. the latter to Exeter, was there a ruler, or man of distinct.; but ret. to Boston in few yrs. d. 1649, leav. good est. by his will (of 29 May shortly bef. his d.) div. among w. and ch. Edmund, Clement, Matthew, beside gr.ch. Isaac, Hannah, Susanna, Thomas, and even an expected ch. of his s. Clement. It made Edmund excor. His wid. d. 1653. ISAAC, Boston, gr.s. I presume, of the preced. had w. Elizabeth and inf. d. when 5 Nov. 1666 admin. was given to the wid. 

MATTHEW, Boston, s. of the first Isaac, m. 5 Oct. 1652, Mary Trott, perhaps d. of John, wh. d. that yr. had Martha, b. 29 June 1653; Thomas, 5 July 1655; Mary, 17 Sept. 1657; Elizabeth 3 Feb. 1660; Sarah, 23 Aug. 1662; and by w. Elinor had John, 11 Sept. 1670; Ann, 5 Jan. 1672; and Ruth, 12 May [[vol. 2, p. 319]] 1678. His will, of 28 Dec. 1693, pro. 22 Feb. foll. gives to s. Edward (of whose b. we are ign.) double portion, and equal shares to others. Ano. MATTHEW, Boston, by w. Ann had, says rec. Elizabeth b. 30 Jan. 1654, but it is wrong. The ch. was Edmund's. SIMON, Hingham, m. Oct. 1675, Mary Bond, had Simon, b. 11 Aug. 1676; Thomas, 4 Nov. 1678; John, 13 Apr. 1681; Josiah, 2 Aug. 1683; Micah, 20 Feb. 1686; Alice, 26 Apr. 1689; and Abigail, 28 June 1692. Highly prob. is it, that old Isaac was his gr.f. but wh. of the s. was his f. is not so clear. Descend. are kn. at Scituate. 

THOMAS, Boston 1668, prob. gr.s. of first Isaac, and perhaps s. of Clement, by w. Elizabeth had Hannah, b. 21 Aug. 1672; Elizabeth 22 Jan. 1674; Abigail, 25 Oct. 1677; Mary, 18 J an. 1681; Huldah, 13 Sept. 1685; Thomas, 6 Dec. 1686; and Jerusha. His wid. m. a Heath, and on 29 Dec. 1709, third h. Francis Burroughs, and outliv. him. Of the ds. Hannah m. 22 June 1693, Nathaniel Halsey; Elizabeth m. 18 Oct. 1693, John Greenough; Abigail m. 28 July 1702, Joseph Shippen; Mary m. a Phillips; and Jerusha m. 19 Sept. 1710, capt. John Fairweather; Huldah was, in 1713, unm. It is spell. Groce in one rec. or more.

GROSVENOR, JOHN, Roxbury, came, as the fam. tradit. tells, from Co. Chester, by w. Esther had William, b. 8 Jan. 1673, H. C. 1693; Susanna, 9 Feb. 1681; a ch. 4 Sept. 1683, d. soon; Ebenezer, 9 Oct. 1684; Thomas, 30 June 1687, d. soon; and Joseph, 1 Sept. 1689, and he d. 26 Sept. 1691. The name is Norman, meaning great hunter, and the Eng. peerage is rich with it. Twelve more of this name had, in 1828, been gr. at other N. E. coll.

GROTH, if such a name be possib. or misprint. for GROWTH or GRATH, JOHN, Salisbury, m. 7 Jan. 1674, Elizabeth d. prob. of John Eaton, had Elizabeth b. July 1674, was adm. to practise medicine 1679 at Hampton. Perhaps he was a German, and call. doctor; may have d. early, and William Hutchins perhaps m. his wid. 30 Apr. 1685.

GROUT, JOHN, Watertown, by w. Mary had John, b. 8 Aug. 1641; and Mary, 11 Dec. 1643; was at Sudbury 1643, freem. 1665, selectman, sev. yrs. town clk. and a capt. was 70 yrs. old in 1689, d. 25 July 1697, his will, pro. 16 Aug. folL dispos. of good est. His sec. w. was Sarah, wid. of capt. Thomas Cakebread, d. of Nicholas Busby, wh. in his will, names John Grout his s. and Sarah G. he calls his youngest d. By her his ch. were John; Sarah, wh. m.

John Livermore; Mary, 1 Aug,. 1661, m. 19 Sept. 1688, Thomas Knapp; and Susanna 1664, who m. 1692, John Woodward.

JOSEPH, Watertown, a carpenter, br. of the preced. m. Susanna, d. of William Hagar, had Susanna, b. 31 Mar. 1681; Joseph, 6 Feb. 1683; and perhaps Mehitable. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1664, had w. Sarah.

GROVE, EDWARD, Salem, was of Boston, a soldier in Col. serv. at the fort 1636, d. 26 Dec. 1686, six ds. after mak. his will, and in it names w. Elizabeth only ch. Mary, w. of William Hirst of Salem, m. 30 July 1674, and her s. Grove, to wh. he gave two books, best rapier, a swivel and carbine. Mary was the name of the free companion of Sir Christopher Gardiner 7 in 1630, sent home next yr. to meet his two ws. so Dudley in his letter to the countess of Lincoln tells, as pr. in Young's Chron. See, also, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 320-4. See Grow and Groves.

GROVER, ANDREW, Malden, m. 7 Feb. 1674, Hannah Hills, d. 24 Apr foll. leav. prop. to Hannah, wid. of Joseph Hills who may have been the mo. of the w. or the w. herself, if the disposition of the will were made bef. m. and his wid. d. 30 May next. EDMUND, Salem 1633, had Naomi, Mary, and Lydia, all bapt. 17 May 1646; and Deborah, 26 Mar. 1648; liv. on Beverly side, perhaps his w. was Margaret, and he may have had other ch. was freem. 1678, and d.

Elizabeth Jenks one half of his est. beside part of his negro's time; one third to his s. Paul's ch. and one sixth to gr.d. Lydia Morrell, w. of Joseph Bill, making d. and gr.d. excors. JOHN, Beverly 1671, may have been s. of Edmund, and perhaps is he wh. m. 13 May 1656, Sarah Barney, prob. d. of the first Jacob, had Sarah, b. 28 Dec. 1659; and Hannah, 9 Nov. 1662, few days aft. wh. his w. d. JOHN, Malden, wh. d. of the age of 17 yrs. 19 Feb. 1674, may have been ch. of Thomas. LAZARUS, Malden, 8. of Thomas, m. Ruth, d. of Richard Adams, in whose will he is made excor. had Lazarus, b. Dec. 1665; and his w. d. 27 Sept. 1674. NEHEMIAH, Beverly, perhaps s. of Edmund, freem. 1678. SAMUEL, of wh. I know only that he came from London, aged 16 in 1635, by the Truelove. SIMON, Malden, freem. 1690, had been a soldier in Philip's war, and was in the famous Falls fight, by w. Sarah had Mary, b. 8 Mar. 1687; and Simon, 26 Apr 1691; and d. 28 Nov. 1717, aged a. 63 yrs.

Mar. foll.; Sarah, Nov. 1670; Andrew, Oct. 1673.

GROVES, JOHN, Kittery, m. Martha, d. of Michael Mitton, rem. to Little Compton. Willis, I. 96. MATTHEW, a soldier in Philip's war on Conn. riv. in wh. he d. His real surname was Legrove, and he, when press. for the serv. was an apprent. of Elisha Ilsley of Newbury. *PHILIP, Hartford, early sett. was rep. 1642 and often after, but for Stratford, whither he rem. bef. 1650, was rul. elder, d. 1676; and by will of 1673 provid. for w. Ann, and four "motherless ch." Nathaniel, Hannah, Sarah, and Ruth, wh. were his gr.ch. and ch. of Nathaniel Porter. In codic. Jan. 1676, one mo. bef. his d. he gave to his d. Elizabeth w. of said N.

This name to me seems much more likely to be Grove, but in the ancient form of writ. u for v it was, perhaps, pervert.

GRUBB, GABRIEL, Isle of Shoals 1677, or earlier, we may suppose, for he d. a. that yr. THOMAS, Boston, 1633, leather dresser, numbered 160, when he and w. Ann unit. with the ch. freem. 4 Mar. 1634, had d. Abiah, bapt. 5 Mar. 1637, and she d. that night; John, b.

Most of these ch. he outliv. for in his will, pro. 6 Mar. 1674, in wh. he calls hims. aged a. 72, "as appears in a scrawl, taken out of the reg. where I was bapt." he gave his est.
