Felt, Ann. II. 214. He m. Jan. 1670, Hannah Gilbert, had Peter, b. 10 Feb. 1671; David, 20 Sept. 1672; Hannah, 1 July 1674; John, 14 Apr. 1676; Mary, 25 Mar. 1678; and Sarah, 15 Apr. 1680. See Essex Inst II. 152. RICHARD, a tailor, came from London in the Planter, 1635, aged 22, with Ann, perhaps his w. 22, but it is not kn. what bec. of them. He may be the foll. 

RICHARD, Concord, had tw. ds. b. 25 and 26 Nov. 1639, soon d. as did the mo. Margaret in 7 days. He may have rem. to Stratford; by ano. w. had Elizabeth b. 25 July 1644; Mary, 15 Sept. 1647; and Sarah, 13 Feb. 1650; was liv. Apr. 1659. Perhaps he was of Salem, and his d. Sarah d. there, 26 Dec. 1659, and he had a s. b. Sept. foll. Elizabeth m. ---- Hide; and Mary m. Thomas Jeffrys. THOMAS, perhaps of Amesbury, m. 1643, Elizabeth d. of James Wall of Hampton; and they were liv. 1663, and he, perhaps, 1683. THOMAS, Taunton 1643. *THOMAS, Amesbury, capt. freem. 1690, rep. 1691 and 2, bef. and after new chart. *WILLIAM, Plymouth, m. 1639, Joanna, rem. to Taunton, of wh. he was one of the purch. 1637, was rep. 1664, and 13 yrs. after. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Joan had Abigail, b. 25 Apr. 1640; Thomas, 18 Dec. 1641; Experience, 4, bapt. 10 Mar. 1644; Joseph, 8, bapt. 14 Dec. 1645; and I presume the same man by w.

Jane had John, b. 4 July 1639; Joanna, 10 Dec. 1642; both bapt. 5 Mar. 1643; and Deliverance, who d. in Feb. 1641, prob. few days old; perhaps rem. to New London a. 1651. Of this name, also, was a disting. merch. of London, who was treasr. of our col. 1629 and never came over the water. HENRY, Charlestown, came with w. Elizabeth in the fleet, no doubt, with Winthrop req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, and was made freem. 4 Mar. 1633, had John, bapt. 3 June 1632, and in Oct. foll. was one of the found. of the ch. at Charlestown, being dism. from the Boston ch. with w. for that purpose. His life was shorten. by the extraord. suffering in a storm, ment. by Winthrop I. 39, and I believe he d. as early as 1635.

Willis, I. 141, 181. 

JAMES, Boston, of wh. I kn. no more but that his f. William, of Biddeford, in Devon, sent over, in 1655, to collect what was due to this s. so that it may seem he was then d. JOHN, Boston 1645, freem. 1649, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth bapt. 17 Mar. 1650, a. 4 days old; Hezekiah, 27 Apr. 1653, d. next yr.; Hannah, 6 Mar. 1655. He was a merch. call. taylor on adm. of our ch. 25 Dec. 1647; perhaps s. of first treasr. sold his est. 1657, to br. Thomas Scottow, went home,and in 1677 was of London, but directing his s. John in import. operat. My suspicion is strong, that his name being sometimes spoken quick, became Harrod in some ears. JOHN', Boston, s. prob. of the preced. by w. Hannah had John, b. 7 June 1677. JOHN, New London, s. of George, bef. ment. had John, who d. 1726, without issue, and was the last of the name at that place. NATHANIEL, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had William, b. 28 Mar. 1665.

Rachel Woodward (whose former was Robert), d. of John Smith, the tailor, had Rachel, b. 20 June 1655, d. next yr.; Jeremiah, 4 June 1656; Ann, 26 Aug. 1657, d. 15 Aug. foll.; Rachel, again, 28 Feb. 1661; and Benjamin, 4 Feb. 1663.


HASEMAN, NATHANIEL, Braintree 1662.

HASEY, JOSEPH, Boston, prob. s. of William, freem. 1690. || WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Sarah had William, b. 15 Sept. 1652; Asa, 1 Jan. 1655; Joseph, 29 May 1657; and Susanna, 30 May 1660; by sec. w. Judith had William, again, 21 Dec. 1679; and Jacob, 28 Aug. 1684; was of ar. co. 1652; liv. at Rumney Marsh, now Chelsea, and d. June 5, leav. wid. Judith. I presume he was freem. 1665, spelt Hazzey. Others of the name were at Chelsea, and it has been wide spread. Three of the name are among gr. of H. C. bef. 1791.
