HENSHAW, HINSHAW, or HINSHEW, DANIEL, Milton. He was sent to our country with his br. in their youth, says a doubtful tradit. was first of Dorchester, m. Mary, wid. of Nicholas Allen, wh. had been wid. of Robert Pond, had Daniel, wh. d. unm. His w. d. 19 Nov. 1719, in 83d yr. JOSHUA, Dorchester, br. of Daniel, 1670, by w. Elizabeth d. of William Sumner, had William, b. 2 Mar. 1672; Joshua; Elizabeth 25 July 1675, d. in few days; Thankful, 4 Mar. 1677; John, 29 May 1697; Samuel, 1 Apr. 1682; Elizabeth again, 18 July 1684; and Catharine, 28 May 1687. The w. and seven ch. abov. are name in his will of 3 Apr. 1688, "being to undertake a voyage to Eng." but the instr. was not pro. bef. 9 Mar. 1723-4. In Geneal. Reg. is ano. ch. Exercise, b. 15 Dec. 1693, but this may be error. JOSHUA, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 1700, Mary Webster, had Daniel, b. 1701; and Joshua 1703.

HENSHER, or HEINSHER, THOMAS, Woburn, m. 24 Sept. 1677. Hannah, d. of Moses Cleaveland, had Elizabeth b. 30 July 1678; Thomas, 17 Nov. 1680; Hannah, 21 May 1683; William, 25 Nov. 1685; Samuel, 13 Mar. 1688; Ebenezer, 1 Mar. 1691; and Josiah, 1 Mar. 1695; and d. 16 Jan. 1700, when the rec. spells Henshaw.

HEPBURN, HEYPBOURNE, HEBORNE, or HEPBOURNE, GEORGE, Charlestown 1635, leather-dresser, freem. 25 May 1636, had w. Hannah, and d. 9 Feb. 1666. In his will of 27 Aug. preced. names s. Ludkin, and Waite, who prob. had m. his ds. and ch. Richard, John, and Abigail, but perhaps this last was gr.ch. also Sarah, Sally, and Rebecca.

HERBERT, HENRY, Charlestown, d. 22 Oct. 1677; he had first w. Elinor Miller, prob. wid. of Richard, and next m. 9 June 1668, Elizabeth wid. of John George; and she d. 23 July 1691, aged a. 70. JOHN, Salem 1637, the shoemaker from Northampton, Eng. wh. prob. came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 23, and had w. Mary, wh. was of the ch. there, tho. he was not, and therefore I conclude he was not, as Farmer thought, the freem. of 1641, yet in right of his w. he had Mary, bapt. 29 Mar. 1640; and John, 15 Oct. 1643; and we easily accept the assertion of Farmer, that he went to Southold, L. I. tho. prob. he went after 1668, when he petition. against imposts. JOHN, Boston, had Elizabeth bapt. 7 Sept. 1679; and John, 31 Jan. 1686, wh. d. early next yr.

HEARNDALE, BENJAMIN, Providence 1646, short time, perhaps, at Lynn, next yr. sw. alleg. May 1666, prob. had s. Benjamin, John, Joseph, Thomas, and William, or some of them, for the o. of alleg. was taken at P. by Joseph, and Benjamin, in May 1671; by the other three in May 1682. His d.

Deliverance had Thomas, Elisha, William, Solomon, Preserved, Abigail, Esther, Kezia, Meribah, and Martha.

HERMAN, FRANCIS, and NATHANIEL, Braintree 1640. See Harman.

HERMAYES, BENJAMIN, Salem, d. Nov. 1666, acc. Essex Inst. II. 15. From long acquaint. with the form of first let. in the surname, I doubt not, the same person is sometimes appear. as Fermais, and oftener as Vermayes.

HEROD, JAMES, Newtown, L. I. 1656. Perhaps this may be the same as Harrod.

HERRICK, EPHRAIM, Beverly, s. of Henry, m. 3 July 1661, Mary Cross of Salem, where he then liv. as B. was not then incorp. had John, b. 31 May 1662; Ephraim, 13 Aug. 1664; Mary, 14 June 1667; Stephen, 15 Mar. 1670; Sarah; Samuel, 4 June 1675; Timothy, 4 Jan. 1681; and Ann, 20 Nov. 1683; was freem. 1668, and he d. 18 Sept. 1693. GEORGE, Salem 1686, came that yr. in the same sh. with John Dunton, who, in his "Life and Errors," speaks kindly of him; by w. Martha had Martha, s. Howett, and George, posthum. b. 2 Jan. 1696. He was a shopkeeper, yet an officer of justice, had hard work, as marshal, in the witchcraft infatua. and d. 1695.

Of these ch. Thomas, Elizabeth and Benjamin d. without ch. A few yrs. since, a descend. Jedediah Herrick, Esq. of Hamden, issued an elegant, print. geneal. reg. of the fam. in sh. he propounds the prob. of this ancestor being s. of Sir William H. ambassador of Queen Elizabeth to Turkey, and a mem. of Parliament in her reign, as well as in that of James I. Even some slight conject. is offered of the orig. descent from Eric, the Danish king, who invaded Eng. as early as the days of Alfred. 

HENRY, Beverly, s. of the preced. by w. Lydia thot to be Woodbury, had Lydia, and Joseph, both bapt. 26 Sept. 1666; Elizabeth 6 Dec. 1668; Samuel, 1670; and Jonathan, 1672; was freem. 1683; m. next, 1690, Sarah, wid. of John Giddings of Gloucester, and d. June 1702. His wid. d. 1711. He was of the jury in the witchcraft trials, 1692, and had the magnanimity, with his fellows, to ask forgiveness for [[vol. 2, p. 406]] the monstrous verdicts extort. from them by the dictation of the court, and univers. delusion. HOWETT, Salem, s. of George, m. 10 Sept. 1715, Abigail Wheeler, had Jonathan, b. 30 Apr. 1717; George, 12 Mar. 1721, d. young; Abigail, 7 Apr. 1723; Andrew, 28 Apr. 1725; George, again, 24 Jan. 1727; and David, bapt. 8 May 1730. JAMES, Newtown, L.I. 1656, perhaps s. of William, named his sec. s. William, but we kn. not his first, and d. 1687.

HERRIMAN, AUGUSTINE, Saybrook 1651. See Trumbull's Col. Rec. I. 219. See, also, Harriman.

HERRING, JAMES, Dedham 1642. THOMAS, Dedham, a freem. 1654, is otherwise unkn. because his w. Mary, d. of Robert Pierce, wh. in his will gave her portion of his est. was, by misreading of the name, giv. to Thomas Haven of Dedham, when there was no such person. A John H. was, in May 1687, engag. in London in receiv. conveyance from Judith, wid. and extrix. of Stephen Winthrop, as he was purposed to come to N.E.

In rec. at H. the name is found Hersie, as he wrote it, also Harsie, and Hearsey; it has from early days been very prevalent in the town, and it may well be cause of regret, that we have not fuller geneal. acco. of the fam. WILLIAM, of Hingham, the soldier in Johnson's comp. Dec. 1675, was prob. the gr.s. of the preced.

HESSELDEN, FRANCIS, Boston 1630, came prob. with Winthrop as he was a very early mem. of the ch. and no more is kn. of him, but that d. was soon writ. against his name in the rec.

HEWLET, LEWIS, Charlestown 1636. MATTHEW, came to Boston 1634, in the Hercules, but in what town he first sett. is unkn.

HEWSTED, ANGEL, Stamford 1666-74, a selectman. The name appears with variat. perhaps in our day, Husted. See Huested.

HEYLER, or HILER, RICHARD, came in the Christian, 1635, aged 22, and perhaps sett. in Boston; but the spell. of the name at the London custom ho. was very uncert.

HIBBINS, or HIBBENS, GILES, Saco, m. 1670, Mary Pennell. Folsom, 188. He d. at Charlestown, 4 Sept. 1693. *WILLIAM, Boston 1639, merch. adm. 28 Sept. of that yr. with Ann, his w. he is then call. gentleman, and I venture to guess, that he came in the Mary and John 1634, as his estates are enumerated among the first eight in the town's book of Poss.sions, prior to sev. wh. came bef. that yr. and perhaps he went back; was freem. 13 May 1640, rep. 1640 and 1, when he went with Peter and Welde to pray for protection from Parliam. to the Col. came back next yr. and was chos. Assist. 1643, till his d. 23 July 1654. His w. Ann, an uncomfort. subject for her bad temper in his life, brot. no ch. but in June 1656, had prevail. on the majority to condemn her as a witch, and she was execut. on that prepost. charge; yet she was permit. to disp. of her prop. by will to two s. John, and Joseph Moore of Ballyhorick, Co. Cork, Ireland, and John serv. as excor. the year foll. Gov. Bellingham was br. of H. if Mr. Haven was not misapplied (in the prolegomena of Vol. III. of Archaeol. Americ. p. lxix.), the epithet "sister," when she was, I imagine, related only as a ch. mem. If so, Gov. Endicot was equal. her br. One was gov. one dept. when she suffer.

JOSEPH, Watertown, perhaps br. of the preced. had Abigail and Elizabeth bapt. 17 Apr. 1687. The name is a strange one; and Dr. Bond does not say that it is perpet. in any part of the country.

HICHBORN, DAVID, Boston 1650, by w. Catharine had Catharine, b. 2 June 1654, and Solomon, and David, tw. 14 Dec. 1661. His w. d. five days after. By pervert. types in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 11, the name is giv. Titchburne.

A Mr. Hickocks, a man of prop. was among New Haven people 1643, but not in the number 1646; but, as no more is told of him, we may presume he went home.
