GUNTER, LESTER, a youth of 13, emb. at London, 1635, for N. E. in the Truelove.

GUPPIE, GUPPY, or GUPPEY, JOHN, Weymouth, freem. 1653, rem. to Charlestown, where in 1678 was "goodman Guppy," then 60 yrs. old who had w. Elizabeth both join. with ch. 1680. His wid. d. 26 Aug. 1693. JOHN, Salem, there had m. 3 June 1669, Abigail Kitchin, perhaps d. of John, and by her had Abigail, b. 31 May 1672; and Elizabeth 3 Feb. 1675. But perhaps this John was s. of Reuben, and not the Weymouth man. REUBEN, Salem 1648, by w. Ellen had John, b. 12 June of that yr. and Reuben, 6 Jan. 1651 as liv. in 1684, in 85th yr. ROBERT, Salem 1647. Felt. Farmer says the name is found at Dover.

GURLEY, SAMUEL, Coventry, s. prob. of William of Northampton, m. a. 1712, Experience, d. of Nathaniel Rust of the same, had Esther, b. 24 Feb. 1713; Jonathan, 2 Apr. 1715; Samuel, 30 June 1717; Lois, 17 Jan. 1720; Eunice, 14 June 1722; Experience, 25 Jan. 1725; Margaret, 4 May 1727, d. young; Mary, and ano. d. who d. very soon, 7 Mar. 1729; and Abigail, 30 June 1721. He rem. to Mansfield, d. there 23 Feb. 1760; and his wid. d. 10 July 1768. He was not ancest of the benev. agent for coloniz. of Africa, unless Goodwin strangely omits that great honor. WILLIAM, Boston, I find nam. in 1653, but not in reg. of b. or d. or m. or of prop. WILLIAM, Northampton 1679, brot. up in the fam. of Rev. Solomon Stoddard, but most indistinct. is the tradit. that he was b. a. 1665, tho. neither parent nor other relat. is kn. and was brot. from Scotland; m. 1684, Esther Ingersoll, had Samuel, b. [[vol. 2, p. 325]] 6 May 1686, and on 1 or 21 May of next yr. was drown. His wid. m. 23 Jan. 1689, Benoni Jones, wh. with two of her ch. were k. in the assault on Northampton 13 May 1704, when she was taken, carr. to Canada by the Ind. there d.

GURNALL, JOHN, Dorchester. See Gornell.

GURNEY, EDWARD, Cambridge 1636. JOHN, Braintree, an early inhab. may be that apprent. of John Newgate, b. 29 Sept. 1615, ment. by Winthrop II. 345. He d. 1663. His w. d. 1664. JOHN, Weymouth, w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 5 May 1689. PETER, Weymouth, s. perhaps of Richard of the same, was a soldier, Dec. 1675, in Johnson's comp. RICHARD, Weymouth, by w. Rebecca, d. prob. of John Taylor first of the same, had Joseph, b. 23 Feb. 1665; and Marry, 9 Sept. 1667; freem. 1681.

GUSTIN, JOHN, Falmouth. See Augustine. He m. at Salem, 10 Jan. 1677, Elizabeth d. of John Brown.

This may be the same name as Gouch, Gooch, or Gouge, in sound nearly alike.

GUTTERIDGE. See Goodridge.

GUTTERSON, JOHN, Andover, m. 14 Jan. 1689, Abigail Buckmaster, Abigail, wh. d. 21 Dec. 1694; and Samuel, d. 19 June 1700. WILLIAM, Ipswich 1648, d. 26 June 1666; had by. w. Elizabeth, William, b. 20 Sept. 1658, d. young; Mary, 8 Aug. 1660; John, 26 Mar. 1662; and Sarah, 3 July 1665; but I suppose he may have been s. of William, whose inv. is by Coffin made 1643.

GUY, HENRY, Charlestown 1652, merch. JOHN, Casco 1663-75, a tenant, of Robert Jordan. See Willis, I. 94, 141; and Genealog. Reg. V. 264. NICHOLAS, Watertown, came in the Confidence of London, 1638, aged 50, with w. Jane, 30; d. Mary, and two serv. from Upton in Hants, emb. at Southampton, was deac. freem. 22 May 1639; d. 6 July 1649; and his wid. liv. to 1669. She was extrix. of his will, and made her own 16 Aug. 1666, pro. 22 Dec. 1669, ment. her s. Joseph Taynter, meaning, no doubt, s.-in-law, his four s. and five ds. Joseph, in, Jonathan, and Simon, Hannah, Rebecca, Sarah, Mary, and Dorothy; s.-in-law Henry Curtis, her d. Mary, his w. with whom the testatrix liv. and the 8. Ephraim, John, and Joseph.

GWIN, JOHN, Charlestown 1646. His wid. Mary, bec. w. of Eleazer Lusher. THOMAS, Boston 1660, m. Elizabeth Benjamin Gillam, wh. d. 1669, leav. two ch.

GYLES, EDWARD, and MATTHEW, I have assigned to Giles. THOMAS, Salem, had d. Hannah, m. 1650, Thomas Very of Gloucester [[vol. 2, p. 326]] THOMAS, an active promoter of settlem. at Kennebeck, call. Pejepscot, now Brunswick, 1666, may have been s. of the preced. was k. at, Pemaquid by the Ind. 2 Aug. 1689; had, beside Samuel, his youngest, then absent, three s. James, the third, then 14, was taken at the same time, and esc. 3 yrs. after, was retaken, and tortured to d. Thomas, the eldest, escap. and John escap. with life, but with ten yrs. of captiv.; and many yrs. later, this last print. a memoir of his f. in 1736. His (John's) will was pro. 6 June 1755. The wid. of Thomas was carr. captiv. and in a short distance confer. with her s. John, prison. in ano. canoe, and gave him her parting blessing, and was never again seen by him, and no doubt she d. in capt. The two ds. were tak. at the same time, Mary and Margaret, who were redeem. and were afterwards m. in Boston.

HABBERFIELD, WILLIAM, Boston 1683, clothier, had w. Mary, and, I suppose, was of Lynn, the freem. 1691, with Mr. bef. his surname, possib. intend. in the rec. for Wm.

HACK, WILLIAM Taunton, had William, b. at Plymouth, 15 Nov. 1663, and w. Mary, who took admin. 1667, bec. he was long gone home. His s. was a serg. in Gallop╒s comp. 1690, for the exped. to Quebec; and no more is kn. of him.

HACKER, GEORGE, Salem, perhaps s. of William, m. Sept. 1672, Bethia Meacham, perhaps d. of Jeremiah, had Bethia, b. 25 July 1673, d. at one yr.; Bethia, again, 9 Mar. 1675; George, 13 Aug. 1678; and Sarah, 28 Feb. 1681; was made prison-keeper 1698. WILLIAM, Lynn 1643; aged a. 65, when he d. in 1661. Possib. this may be the same as Hackett or Harker. At Southampton, L. I. wh. was sett. chiefly from L. was the name of Hacker; but Farmer suggest. that this might be Hagar.

HACKERBERRY, THOMAS, one of the soldiers in Moseley's comp. Dec. 1675, march. to Narraganset.

HACKETT, JABEZ, Lynn 1644, rem. to Taunton, there had John, b. 26 Dec. 1654; Jabesh, 12 Sept. 1656; Mary, 9 Jan. 1660; Sarah, 13 July 1661; Samuel, 29 July 1664; and Hannah, 25 Jan. 1667, Sarah m. 18 Dec. 1689, Edward Cobb; and Hannah m. 14 Jan. 1685, Robert Godfrey.

WILLIAM, Salem, a youth, execut. Jan. 1642, for bestiality. Winthrop II. 48. WILLIAM, Dover 1657, at Exeter had Mary, b. 2 Dec. 1665, when perhaps his w. d. was of Amesbury 1666, mariner, m. 31 Jan. 1667, Sarah, d. I think, of Thomas Barnard of Salisbury had at S. Sarah, b. 8 Feb. 1668; Ephraim, 7 Mar. 1680; William, 10 Mar. 1683; Judah, 2 Jan. 1685; Ebenezer, 17 Oct. 1687; beside, perhaps, Rebecca (earlier than Ephraim), wh. m. Aug. 1695, Jonathan Whiting of Portsmouth; and these four s. may have been s. of ano. Perhaps he came from Lynn. WILLIAM, Salisbury, possib. s. of the preced. had Ephraim, b. 7 Mar. 11 1680; William, 10 Mar. 1683; Judah, 2 Jan. 1685; and Ebenezer, 17 Oct. 1687.

HACKFORD, WILLIAM, Salem 1637. Felt. Prob. he soon rem.

[[vol. 2, p. 327]]

HACKLINTON, or HACKLETON, FRANCIS, Northampton 1661, a brickmaker, unm. perhaps rem. next yr. to Hartford, and m. Joanna, d. of Samuel Wakeman.

HACKWELL, JOHN, came in the Increase, 1635, aged 18, but we kn. not of his resid.

HADAWAY, JOHN, Barnstable. See Hathaway, the modern name.

HADBORNE, GEORGE, from Stepney, near London, a glover, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 43; with w. Ann, 46; and ch. Rebecca, 10; Ann, 4; and two serv. Where he sat down has not been found.

HADDEN, or HADDON, FERMAN, Charlestown, perhaps s. of Jared, Gerard, or whatever his name was, of Cambridge, by w. (to wh. Bellingham, Dept.-Gov. m. him 5 May 1657, but by his carelessness, or that of the Reg. the name is blank, yet in the reg. of b. her bapt. name is found), Elizabeth had Sarah, b. 15 Dec. 1657; Samuel, 27 Feb. 1659; and perhaps more. JARED, JERAD, GARRETT, or GERARD, Cambridge 1632, came, prob. in the fleet with Winthrop for he is among the first hundred mem. of the Boston ch. adm. prior to any sec. arriv. freem. 14 May 1634, a propr. of Salisbury 1640, had w. Margaret, and at S. by her, Sarah, b. 15 Jan. 1640; was liv. at S. 1663. His w. d. 20 Mar. 1673. GEORGE, Cambridge, or at least H. C. 1647, may have been s. of the preced. but where his after life was spent, or when he d. is unkn. Conject. that he went to Eng. is plausible. A Catharine H. is witness to the will of Thomas Bittlestone at C. and may have been first w. or even d. of Jared.

HADLEY, GRORGE, Ipswich 1639, liv. in 1678, says Felt. GEORGE, Rowley 1668, was perhaps the same or s. of the preced. JOHN, Gloucester, 1683. SAMUEL, Amesbury, s. of George, sw. alleg. Dec 1677.

HADLOCK, JAMES, Roxbury, m. 19 May 1669, Sarah Draper, had Sarah, b. 16 Dec. 1670, rem. to Salem, there had, in 1678, w. Rebecca, d. prob. of Richard Hutchinson, wh. he m. May 1658, unless the numerals in Essex Inst. II. 150 and 1, be wrong, as they prob. are; s. James, and John, ds. Mary, Hannah, there said to be b. July 1657; Sarah, Sept. 1659; and Rebecca. But possib. he had some of these by ano. w. for the will of Hutchinson, 1682, calls him s.-in-law, but names not the w. nor any Hadlock gr.ch. exc. Sarah. James, jr. was incl. in the tax list (Mr. Felt assures me) of 1682 for Salem vill. JOHN, Concord, d. 1675. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of James, m. 16 Jan. 1694, Sarah Pasque or Pasco, had Sarah, bapt. June 1695; and Margery, 27 Sept. 1696. 

NATHANIEL, Charlestown 1643, freem. 1646, after 1658 rem. to Lancaster, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 31 May 1641; and Nathaniel, 5 June 1643. NATHANIEL, Salem, perhaps s. of the preced. suffer. says Felt, Nov. 1668, with Quakers, rem. to Gloucester, m. 1 May 1673, Remember Jones, had Nathaniel, b. 1677; Deborah, 1679; John, b. 27 Feb. 1682; James, 1684; Samuel, 1687; Mary, 1696; and Benjamin, 1700; beside Joseph, and William, as Babson teaches.

HADWELL, WILLIAM, a passeng. in the Arabella from London 1671, of wh. we kn. no more. [[vol. 2, p. 328]]

HAFFELL, or HAFFIELD, RICHARD, Ipswich, came, 1635, in the Planter, aged 54, with w. Martha, 42; and ch. Mary, 17; Sarah, 14; Martha, 8; Rachel, 6; and Ruth, 3; liv. not long, I think, for his will as made 17 Feb. 1639; tho. not pro. until 29 Sept. 1668, perhaps bec. in provid. for the five ds. and their mo. it exactly foll. the law. Abstr. is in Geneal. Reg. III. 156.

HAFFUT, WILLIAM, giv. by Mr. Coffin in Geneal. Reg. VI. 341, as aged 48, in 1668, tho. no indicat. of resid. is seen.

HAGAR, or AGAR, JOHN, Watertown, perhaps s. of the first William, 1771 a soldier in brave capt. Davenport's comp. k. in the great Narraganset battle, 19 Dec. 1675. SAMUEL, Watertown, s. of William, was freem. 1690, m. Sarah d. of Isaac Mixer, had Sarah, bapt. 24 May 1691; Mary, 25 July 1697; Samuel, b. 1 Sept. 1698; and Isaac, 24 Apr. 1701; and he d. 13 Feb. 1705. His will of 27 May preced. made br. Isaac Mixer, and s. Samuel excors. nam. w. Sarah, and ch. Isaac, Sarah, and Mary. WILLIAM, Watertown, prob. came ill the fleet with Winthrop as made freem. 18 May 1631, tho. he may have arr. only a few wks. bef. with Rev. Roger Williams, but nothing more is kn. of him. 

WILLIAMS, Watertown, perhaps s. of the preced. b. in Eng,. m. 20 Mar. 1645, Mary Bemis, had Mary, b. 25 Dec. 1645; Ruhamah, and Samuel, tw. 20 Nov. 1647; Hannah, 21 Nov. 1649; Sarah, 3 Sept. 1651; Susanna; William, 12 Feb. 1659; Rebecca, 29 Oct. 1661; Abigail, and Mehitable; and d. 10 Jan. 1684; and his wid. d. Dec. 1695. Ruhamah m. Joseph Wait; Sarah m. 12 Mar. 1674, Nathaniel Whitney; Susanna m.

WILLIAM, Watertown, s. of the preced. m. 30 Mar. 1687, Sarah, d. of the sec. John Benjamin, had perhaps first b. William; Sarah; Mary; John, b. 29 Apr. 1697; Ebenezer, 13 Aug. 1698; Joseph, 1 Jan. 1702; Mehitable, 7 May 1704; and Mercy, 1707. He d. 8 May 1731, and his wid. d. 20 Oct. 1745, aet. 82. Well has the name been perpet.

HAGBORNE, or HACKBORNE, ABRAHAM, Boston, shoemaker, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth; Sarah, b. 24 Dec. 1639; Isaac, bapt. 2 Oct. 1642, 7 days old; and Joseph, b. 8 Oct. 1652; freem. 1645, when in Col. Rec. the spelling is Hackburne. Elizabeth the d. m. 8 Sept. 1654, James Young. SAMUEL, Roxbury, by w. Catharine whose fam. name, it is said, was Dighton, had Elizabeth b. in Eng. says the town rec. 7 May 1635; Samuel, 20 Jan. 1638; John, 26 May 1640; and Hannah, bapt. 5 June 1642, tho. the authentic careless copy of rec. in Boston says b. 5 Jan. 1643 i freem. 2 May 1638, and he d. 24 Jan. 1643, tho. other rec. says "7 Dec. 1642, leav. good est. In his will 19 Jan. 1643, of wh. abstr. is in [[vol. 2, p. 329]] Geneal. Reg. II. 261, he calls Abraham br. His wid. m. 14 Apr. 1644, Gov. Thomas Dudley, whose w. d. near the end of Dec. preced.; and after his d. 31 July 1653, she m. in less time than Dudley had been wid. 8 Nov. foll. Rev. John Allin of Dedham; had ch. by all the h. and a. 29 Aug. 1671, three days only after the last, in whose grave she was bur. Hannah m. 24 Dec. 1662, Samuel Hunting. SAMUEL, Near London, s. of the preced. was in office of trust 1664, and had been there four yrs. bef. and cont. at least four yrs. after.

HAGGETT, HENRY, Salem 1642, freem. 1670, prob. of Wenham at his d. 1676, in 83d yr. leav. wid. and ch. Henry, Moses, Mary, Deliverance, and Hannah, who m. 1665, Philip Welsh of Ipswich. Prob. ano. d.

HAIMES, JOHN, Boston, by w. Mary had Catharine, bapt. 21 May 1682.

HAINES. See Haynes.

HAKES, JOHN, Windsor, had John, bapt. 13 Aug. 1643; Nathaniel, 16 Feb. 1645; Elizabeth 10 Jan. 1647; Ann, 1 Oct. 1648; Isaac, 11 Aug. 1650; Mary, 23 May 1652; Joanna, 8 Feb. 1654; Eleazer, 20 Dec. 1655; beside Sarah, and Gershom, whose dates are incompat. So strange sound. a name excites doubt of the chirogr. on the rec. but all this and more is support. by Stiles, in Hist. of W. 651.

HALBRIDGE, HALBICH, HOLBRIDGE, or HOLBICH, ARTHUR, Boston 1635, rem. to New Haven, said to have come 1638, certainly there June 1639, and some yrs. later, d. 1648. His wid. rec. assist. by pub. contrib. and brot. her childr. Mercy and John to be bapt. 30 June 1650.

HALE, GERSHOM, Springfield, had sev. ch. bef. going thither, and one b. 1698, when his w. Ann d. there. Whence he came, or who was his f. is unkn. a s. and a d. were m. 1708. JOHN, Beverly, eldest ch. of deac. of Charlestown, m. 15 Dec. 1664, Rebecca, d. not (as Coffin in Geneal. Reg. VI. 311, says) wid. of Henry Byley of Salisbury (wh. seems the more strange, as on p. 246 of the same Vol. he had noted truly that Byley's wid. m. John Hall, yet six lines after, makes her m. Rev. John Hale). This blunder, that arose from similar names would have been avoid. by that most dilig. antiquary, had he consider. the times of the two ms. as the wid. got her sec. h. when Hale was not five yrs. old. He had Rebecca, b. 28 Apr. 1666; and Robert, 3 Nov. 1668, H. C. 1686; was ord. 20 Sept. 1667, after preach. three yrs. to the new formed congr. His w. d. 13 Apr. 1683, and he m. 31 Mar. 1684, Sarah, d. of Rev. James Noyes, I presume, and had James, 14 Oct. 1685, H. C. 1703; Samuel, 13 Aug. 1687; Joanna, 15 June 1689; and John, 24 Dec. 1692. This w. d. 20 May 1695, and 8 Aug. 1698 he m. Elizabeth wid. of Nathaniel Clark, d. of Henry Somerby, who outliv. him He serv. [[vol. 2, p. 330]] as one of the chaplains in the Quixotic exped. equally brief and disastrous, of Sir William Phips, 1690, against Canada; ana in the outbreak of the diabol. witchcraft, 1692, was, of course, by his proximity to the chief incanta. much engaged. Most luckily, somebody of Wenham made charge of that crime upon his sec. w. then big with her last ch. and his eyes were opened to the monstrous delusion, as with great moderation and dignity is set forth in a tract published by him a few years after. See a valua. Memoir 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 255. He d. 15 May 1700. Of his ch. Robert was a promin. man, author, I think, of those verses on Nathaniel Mather, found at the end of Lib. IV. of his br.'s Magnalia; James was min. of Ashford; and Samuel, progenit. of a long line that has disting itself in N. Hampsh. 

JOHN, Newbury, s. of the first Thomas of the same, m. 5 Dec. 1660, Rebecca, d. of Richard Lowell, had John, b. 2 Sept. 1661; and his w. d. 1 June foll. He m. 8 Dec. 1663, Sarah, d. of Henry Somerby, had Samuel, b. 15 Oct. 1664. d. at 8 yrs; Henry, 20 Oct. 1667; Thomas, 4 Nov. 1668; and Judith, 5 July 1670. The sec. w. d. June 1672; and by third w. Sarah Symonds, who d. 19 Jan. 1699, he had Joseph, 24 Nov. 1674; Benjamin, 11 Aug. 1676, d. at one yr. and Moses, 10 July 1678, H. C. 1699. This last was first min. of Byfield parish, Newbury, m. 1704, Elizabeth d. of Richard Dummer. JOSEPH, Boxford, s. of Thomas of the same, m. Mary, d. of William Watson. ROBERT, Charlestown, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop 1630, and was of the earliest mem. of Boston ch. being No. 18, and with his w. Joanna among those who formed the Charlestown ch. 14 Oct. 1632, of wh. he was one of the first two deac. freem. 14 May 1634, ar. co. 1644, ensign and a selectman 11 yrs. d. 16 July 1659; had, beside John, b. 3, bapt. 5 June 1636, H. C. 1657, bef. ment.; Mary, 17, bapt. 19 May 1639; Zechary, 3 Apr. 1641, who d. at two yrs.; Samuel, 9 Apr. 1644; and Joanna. His wid. m. Richard Jacob of Ipswich, and d. a 1679. Joanna m. 9 Nov. 1664, John Larkin; and Mary m. Edward Wilson. 

SAMUEL, Charlestown, s. of the preced. a mariner, by w. Lydia had Lydia, bapt. 28 Oct. 1677, and he d. 1677. *SAMUEL, Hartford 1640, one of the first proprs. at Norwalk 1654, had first been at Wethersfield 1642, and with his br. Thomas serv. in the Pequot war 1637, was rep. for N. 1657, 8, and 60, went back to Wethersfield, and liv. in that part wh. is now Glastonbury; where sev. descend. cont. In his will ch. nam. are Samuel, b. a. 1644; John; Thomas; Ebenezer; Mary; Rebecca; and Dorothy. SAMUEL, Newbury, s. of the first Thomas of the same, was, perhaps, of Dover, 1665; m. 21 July 1673, Sarah, d. of William Ilsley. Coffin tells no more. 

SAMUEL, Glastonbury, s. of Samuel of Wethersfield, m. 20 June 1670, Ruth, d. of Thomas Edwards of the same, had Ruth, b. 20 Jan. 1672, d. under 4 [[vol. 2, p. 331]] mos.; Samuel, 14 Jan. 1674, d. very soon; Mary, 13 June 1675; Samuel, again, 17 July 1677; and Ruth, again, 1 Dec. 1681. His w. d. 26 Dec. 1682, and he m. 1695, Mary, d. of the first Samuel Welles, and d. 18 Nov. 1711; and his wid. d. 18 Feb. 1715. THOMAS, Roxbury, br. of Samuel of Hartford, a single man, says the ch. rec. freem. 14 May 1634, rem. soon after to Hartford, came back for short time, m. Feb. 1640, Jane Lord, a serv. mem. of the ch. of R. and ret. to Conn. went among first sett. to Norwalk 1654, not long after rem. and perhaps closed his days at Charlestown. 

THOMAS, Newbury, a glover, came in 1635, with w. Thomasin, and s. Thomas, b. 1633; freem. 7 Sept. 1638, had here John, b. 3 June 1636; and Samuel, both bef. ment.; liv. some yrs. at Haverhill, where he was selectman; in 1659, perhaps at Salem; but went back to Newbury, and d. 21 Dec. 1682, aged 78; and his wid. 30 Jan. foll.
