HILLIARD, ANTHONY, Hingham 1638, prob. had fam. and his d. Mary, it may have been, wh. m. 14 Aug. 1664, John Farrow, sec. of the same. Perhaps too he had at H. d. Ann. BENJAMIN, Wethersfield, s. of Hugh, may be in town rec. Benoni, as keep. of the town herd, 1648. BENJAMIN, Salem 1653, was k. at Hampton by the Ind. 13 June 1677. EDWARD, Salem, by w. Martha had Elizabeth b. 14 Oct. 1658, but, no doubt, the last fig. is wrong; and (if rec. be good), Mary, 30 May 1659; Edward, 16 Oct. 1660; Sarah, 8 Sept. 1662; David, 11 Dec. 1665; Jonathan, 6 Feb. 1668; and Joseph, 4 Jan. 1673. Sometimes it is spell. Helliard. Elizabeth m. 14 Sept. 1669, Gilbert Peters. Mary m. 30 Aug. 1672, William West, it is said; but she was too young. 

EMANUEL, Hampton 1649, lost in a boat, going out with six others, 20 Oct. 1657, had, prob. Timothy. HUGH, Salem, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, yet, as he is not nam. in Felt's list of ch. members, we may think he had belong. to some other ch. He had w. Margaret, s. Job, and Benjamin; and d. early. His wid. m. John Elson, wh. d. 1648 at Wethersfield; and she took third h. Thomas Wright of W. and d. 1671. In her will of 1670, she names s. Job, dec. and his ch. and Benjamin, wh. we may presume to have been the older. She had certain. no ch. by Elson, nor, prob. any by Wright. JOB, Salem 1653, br. of Benjamin, a fisherman. His first w. Sarah d. 14 Oct. 1660, and he m. 1 Apr. foll. Mary Oliver, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Abigail, b. 26 July 1662; Benjamin, 6 May 1664; Job, early in June 1669; beside, prob. William; and Sarah; and d. Mar. 1670. JOB, Boston 1689, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Mary had Mary, b. at Charlestown, 1706. 

TIMOTHY, Hampton, perhaps s. of Emmanuel of the same, had to w. in 1669, a d. of Joseph Merry of the same, whose name is not seen. He took o. of fidel. Dec. 1678; and I observe, that by w. Apphia he had Apphia, b. 29 Aug. 1686. WILLIAM, Boston, came in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, a carpenter, aged 21, by w. Esther had Esther, b. 25 Mar. 1642; Mary, 7 June 1644. Six of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and two at the other N. E. coll.

HILLIER, HELYER, or HILLER, ANDREW, Simsbury, s. of John of Windsor, m. Hannah, d. of Benjamin Burr, had only Hannah, b. 1676; and d. 1697. His will of Feb. 1693 gives all his prop. to the d. He had prob. liv. at Windsor first. HUGH, Barnstable, and been of Yarmouth, 1639, there by w. Rose had Deborah, b. 20 Oct. 1643; and Samuel, 30 July 1646; and d. in short time after. His wid. m. 3 Nov. 1648, Thomas Huckins. JAMES, Windsor, s. of John, m. 15 June 1677, Mary, wid. of Ebenezer Dibble, had James, b. 28 Jan. 1679; and Elizabeth 6 May 1680; James, 14 Apr. 1683; perhaps others. He had sec. w. 30 Mar. 1699; Mary, wid. of William Alderman, d. of John Case, and by her had Elizabeth Descend. remain. JOHN, Windsor, had John, b. 3 June 1637; Mary, 25 Dec. 1639; Timothy, 3 June 1642; James, 24 Aug. 1644; Andrew, 4 Nov. 1646; Simon, 25 Dec. 1648; Nathaniel, 1 Jan. 1651; Sarah, 25 Aug. 1652; and Abigail, 21 Aug. 1654; and he d. 16 July 1655. All the ch. exc. Nathaniel, were liv. 1673. JOHN, Windsor, Hadley, and Northampton, s. of the preced. had at W. Elizabeth b. 8 Dec. 1680; Ann, 8 May 1687, wh. d. soon; left Timothy. His name in the rec. is Hilliour, and often the fam. is call. Hilliard. ROGER, Charlestown 1691, m. Experience, d. of Richard Hall of Dorchester, had John, bapt. 25 Aug. 1689; and Sarah, 7 Feb. 1692; and d. 10 Sept. 1693, aged 32. WILLIAM, Duxbury 1639-43, a carpenter, was the first miller in town, says Winsor.

HILTON, CHARLES, Dover, youngest s. of Edward the first, outliv. his f. and I regret to say, that of him nothing more is kn. to me, exc. that he was of Exeter 1671, and d. a. 1683 or 4, unm. and a. 40 yrs. old. EDWARD, Dover, br. prob. younger, of William, a fishmonger, wh. means, I think, citizen of London of that comp. came and sat down, it is thot. in 1623, at D. and there liv. near twenty yrs. then rem. to Exeter, and d. early in 1671. We kn. not the name of his first w. by wh. he had Edward, b. 1630, or, as Mr. Quint says, 1626; William, 1632, or 1628; Samuel; and charles, who all admin. his ext. wh. was large. After July 1650, he m. Catharine, d. of Alexander Shapleigh, and wid. of James Treworthy, wh. outliv. him, and he d. 29 May 1676. Perhaps he had other ch. as John, and Jonathan, the latter name being found in the tax list at D. 1659; one d. wh. m. Christopher Palmer; and Mary, wh. M. Henry Moulton of Hampton. Descend. to our day are in good repute. 

EDWARD, Exeter, eldest s. of the preced. m. Ann, d. of Samuel Dudley, gr.d. of the Govs. Winthrop and Dudley, had Winthrop, a very promin. officer in the milit. k. by the Ind. 23 June 1710; just after being chos. into the Council, and bef. tak. his seat; Dudley, carr. away by the Ind. prob. when his br. Winthrop was k. for he was never heard of after; Joseph, b. a. 1681; Jane; Ann; Mary, and Sobriety, as Farmer gives them, but he leaves us to guess, that the last was a d. He d. 1699. Descend. of Col. Winthrop H. still enjoy the ancestr. fields, in one of [[vol. 2, p. 423]] wh. they show the gr.stone on the spot he fell in, whose inscript. is yet legib. Jane m. Richard Mattoon; Ann m. Richard Hilton; Mary m. Joseph Hall; and Sobriety m. Jonathan Hilton. 

JOHN, Dover 1655, prob. s. of Edward, had gr. of ld. 1660, at Exeter, and he may have rem. to Middletown, where one of this name d. Dec. 1686, or Jan. 87, leav. ch. Mary, aged 14; John, 11; Richard, 7, and Ebenezer, 8 mos. Yet it may be better to inq. for ano. John, as their f. A John H. d. 1705, says Farmer, in Boston; but I doubt he was only a transient resid. for no admin. is found by me for twenty yrs. RICHARD, Charlestown, s. of sec. William, had w. Elizabeth Lord, wh d. 22 Sept. 1718, aged 49, and he d. 25 Jan. 1721. His ch. were of names unkn. to me. ROBERT, Wells, may have been s. of Edward, or William, or of neither, yet prob. a man of respectab. stand. for in Sept. 1685 his admors. were Samuel Wheelwright and Francis Littlefield, two of the Chief men. SAMUEL, Exeter, s. of the first Edward, of wh. I can learn nothing, but that, with his brs. he admin. on the large est. of his f. and in 1689, unit. with so many others of the New Hampsh. people to desire protect. under Mass. jurisdict. WILLIAM, Plymouth, br. (I presume, elder), of first Edward, a fishmonger of London, i. e. of that guild or comp. came in the Fortune, 1621, to Plymouth, hav. left his w. and two ch. to follow in the next sh. Ann, 1623. The letter he wrote in Nov. 1621 is preserv. in Young's Chron. In the div. of lds. reference being made solely to the ship, in wh. any claimant came, we have the w. and two ch. as so entitled, without names. As he rem. to join his br. at Dover bef. the div. cattle in 1627, we are not able to learn their names, tho. that of the w. prob. a sec. one, Frances, is gained from a depon. in 1688, when she was w. of Richard White, in wh. she testif. that 40 yrs. bef. her h. W. H. hired ho. at Kittery point of Nicholas Shapleigh; and from Maine rec. I learn, that he, with prefix of respect, was there in 1648, 9, and 50, licensed to sell wine, keep the ferry, and have control of Great Island, so that we may be sure Coffin mistook ano. for him, in giving the ch. tho. he was of Newbury, when made freem. 19 May 1642, in wh. yr. he is call sen. at Dover, and rep. 1644. 

The date of his d. is not kn. but in 1661 he was constable at K. WILLIAM, Newbury, s. prob. of the preced. b. in London, came, I doubt not, with his mo. in the Ann, to Plymouth, 1623, had Sarah, b. June 1641; Charles, July 1643, d. young; Ann, 12 Feb. 1649; Elizabeth 6 Nov. 1650, wh. m. 22 Dec. 1673, Timothy Cutler and William, 28 June 1633; was freem. 1653. After d. of his w. he rem. to Charlestown, m. 16 Sept. 1659. Mehitable, d. of Increase Nowell, had Nowell, b. 4, bapt. 10 May 1663; Edward, 3, bapt. 4 Mar. 1666; John, bapt. 24 May 1668; Richard, b. 13, bapt. 18 Sept. 1670; and Charles, again, 19, bapt. 27 Apr. 1673. He d. 7 Sept. 1675; and his wid. m. deac. John Cutler, and d. Sept. [[vol. 2, p. 424]] 1711. His relation with the ch. of Newbury was transf. to that of C. 14 Aug. 1670. Beside the ch. bef. ment. he had Mary, wh. m. at C. 2 Oct. 1666, William Marshall, and d. 15 July 1678, aged 33. Budington, 192, refers to the "Relation of a discov. on the Coast of Florida," by a William Hilton, commiss. with two others in the ship Adventure, set out from Barbados, Aug. 1663, pub. at London 1664; but he may be mistak. in his surmise, that this was our William. It could not, prob. be the first or sec. may possib. be s. of Edward; but it seems likely to be not of N. E. origin. Hilton's relation is reprint. in Vol. IV. of Force's Tracts, Washington 1846. Great uncertainty is felt by the writers a. the descend. of these two promin. early sett. 

But we may safely decide, I think, against Budington and Coffin. that the William, wh. in 1621 had w. and two ch. at London, was not the same, who had William, b. at Newbury in 1653, and Charles at Charlestown in 1673. He must have reach. mid. life bef. the d. of Increase Nowell was b. 1638. WILLIAM, YORK, s. prob. of Edward, may be that freem. of 1652.

HINCKLEY or HINKLEY, BENJAMIN, Barnstable, prob. eldest s. of sec. Samuel by first w. m. 27 Dec. 1686, says Hamblen, Sarah, d. of Henry Cobb, had Benjamin, b. 18 July 1694; Mary, 3 Oct. 1696; Nathaniel, 30 June 1698, and Mercy, 1 Sept. 1704. EBENEZER, Barnstable, s. of Gov. Thomas, m. at Sudbury, Nov. 1706, Mary Stone, had Rachel, b. 1 Nov. 1707. JOHN, Barnstable, s. of Samuel the first, was prob. educ. by Rev. Samuel Newman of Rehoboth, as he was one of the witness. to his will, 18 Nov. 1661; m. July 1668, Bethia, d. of Thomas Lothrop, had Sarah, b. May 1669; Samuel, 2 Feb. 1671; Bethia, Mar. 1673; Hannah, May 1675; Jonathan, 15 Feb. 1678; Ichabod, 28 Aug 1680; and Gershom, 2 Apr. 1682. His w. d. 10 July 1694, and he d. 7 Dec. 1709. He had sec. w. 24 Nov. 1697, Mary Goodspeed, perhaps wid. of Benjamin. JOHN, Barnstable, s. of Gov. Thomas, m. 1 May 1691, Thankful, d. of Thomas Trott of Dorchester, had John, b. 29 Mar. bapt. 3 Apr. 1692, d. at 2 yrs.; Mary, bapt. 24 Feb. 1695; Abiah, 24, bapt. 28 Mar. 1697; Thankful, 14, bapt. 16 July 1699; John, again, 17, bapt. 23 Feb. 1702; and James, 9 May 1704. 

SAMUEL, Scituate, from Tenterden in Kent, came in the Hercules of Sandwich, 1635, with w. Sarah, and four ch. Thomas, the future Gov. Susanna, Mary, and Sarah. His w. join. the ch. 30 Aug. 1635, had Elizabeth bapt. next Sunday; Samuel, 4 Feb. 1638, d. soon; Samuel, again, 10 Feb. 1639, d. soon; rem. 1640, to Barnstable, where he had Samuel, 24 July 1642, by Deane call. Sarah; and John, 26 May 1644, bef. ment. beside one d. bur. 8 July 1640, unbapt. and tw. ch. also bur. 1641. His w. d. 18 Aug. 1656; and he m. 15 Dec. 1657, Bridget, perhaps d. but more prob. wid. of [[vol. 2, p. 425]]

Robert Bodfish, and d. 31 Oct. 1662. His d. Sarah m. 12 Dec. 1649, Henry Cobb, as 2d w. and Elizabeth m. 15 July 1657, Elisha Parker. Other ds. nam. in his will are Susanna, and Mary, wh. were both m. SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of the preced. m. 14 Dec. 1664, Mary, d. of Roger Goodspeed, had Benjamin, b. 6 Dec. 1666, bef. ment. and his w. d. in two wks. foll. He m. 2d w. 15 Jan. 1669, Mary, d. of Edward Fitzrandle. had Samuel, b. 2 Feb. 1670, d. at 7 yrs.; Joseph, 15 May 1672; Isaac, 20 Aug. 1674; Mary, May 1677, d. at two yrs.; Mercy, 9 Apr. 1679; Ebenezer, 2 Aug. 1685; and Thomas, 1 Jan. 1689.

Thomas, m. 13 Nov. 1676, Sarah Pope, had Mary, b. 22 July 1678; Mehitable, 28 Dec. 1679; Thomas 19 Mar. 1681; Seth, 16 Apr. 1683; Samuel; Elnathan, d. soon; Job, 16 Feb. 1688; Shubael, 1 May 1690; Mercy, 11 Jan. 1693; Josiah, 24 Jan. 1695; and Elnathan, again, 29 Dec. 1697. He d. 19 Mar. 1698; and his wid. m. 17 Aug. foll. Thomas Huckens. *THOMAS, Barnstable, s. of the first Samuel, b. in Eng. a. 1618, came, prob. with his f. 1633, was rep. 1647, m. 4 Dec. 1641, Mary Richards, had Mary, b. 3, bapt. 4 Aug. 1644; Sarah, 4 Nov. bapt. 6 Dec. 1646; Meletiah, 25, bapt. 26 Nov. 1648; Hannah, 15, bapt. 27 Apr. 1631; Samuel, 14, bapt. 20 Feb. 1653; Thomas, b. 5 Dec. 1654; Bathshua, 15 May 1657; and Mehitable, 24 Mar. 1659. His w. d. three mos. after, and he m. 15 Mar. 1660, Mary, wid. of Nathaniel Glover of Dorchester (d. of John Smith, b. in Lancashire 1630), had Admire, b. 28 Jan. 1661, d. in two wks.; Ebenezer, 22 Feb. 1662, d. in 2 wks.; Mercy, Jan. 1663; Experience, Feb. 1665; John, 9 June 1667; Abigail, 8 Apr. 1669; Thankful, 20 Aug. 1671; Ebenezer, again, 23 Sept. 1673; and Reliance, 15, bapt. 19 Dec. 1675, being that Sunday of the great Narraganset fight, the hardest battle bef. that of Bunker Hill that ever occur. in N. E. Her f. was then with the army, and Rev. Mr. Russell, the min. of the town, gave the name. He was rep. 1645, and in 1658 chos. an Assist. of the Col. the first dep.-gov. 1680, and Gov. from 1681 to 1692, when the Mass. Chart. absorbed the old Col. exc. during the time of Andros's power, to wh. he was a counsel. nam. by the King, and d. 1706, in 88th yr. His w. had d. 29 July 1703, in 73d yr. 

Of the ds. of the Gov. we kn. the m. of most; Sarah m. 27 Mar. 1673, Nathaniel Bacon; Meletiah m. 22 Oct. 1668, Josiah Crocker; Hannah m. Nathaniel Glover, the sec. of Dorchester, s. of her f.'s w. by former h.; Mehitable m. Samuel Warden of Boston, and next, on 25 Aug. 1698, William Avery of Dedham; Mercy m. Samuel Prince of Sandwich or Middleborough, as his sec. w.; Experience m. James Whipple; Abigail m. 2 Jan. 1698, Rev. Joseph Lord of Dorchester in S. C. after of Chatham, Mass.; Thankful m. 19 Nov. 1695, Rev. Experience Mayhew of the Vineyard; and Reliance m. 15 Dec. 1698, [[vol. 2, p. 426]] Rev. Nathaniel Stone of Harwich. It will be perceiv. that this; acco. differs in a slight degree from that in Geneal. Reg. X. 229, furnish. by the dilig. antiquary, W. F. Stone, Esq. from an old almanac of his gr.f. Rev. Nathan, wh. was gr.s. of Gov. H. Of the error, that consists in mak. seven ds. of the first w. and four of the sec. m. when we kn. there were five of the sec. and six of the first, all (exc. one wh. was his mo.), aunts of the notemaker; I gain the right to ask who can tell the ws. of the hs. Wyburn and Hall, for after many hours' search, at various times, that almanac fails to instr. me. Baylies, IV. 139, 40, has largely portrayed his character. Ten of this name had been in 1834, gr. at the N. E. coll. of wh. four of Yale, and Harv. and Dart. had ea. two.

HINCKES, HINKS, or HINCKS, *JOHN, Portsmouth, came in 1672, was a provinc. counsel. 1683, and of Sir E. Andros's Counc. 1687, Ch. Just. of Sup. Ct. 1699 to 1707. Samuel, H. C. 1701, may be his s.

HINCKSON, or HINKSMAN, JOHN, Charlestown, by w. Mary had John b. 5 Feb. 1683, bapt. with sis. Rebecca, 17 July, 1687; and Mary, 30 July bapt. 5 Aug. 1688. PHILIP, Saco, freem. 1603. Sullivan, 362. PETER and SIMON were of Scarborough 1671-6; and Peter, prob. s. of one of them, m. 12 July 1698, Elizabeth d. of John Parsons. THOMAS, New Hampsh. m. a d. of Thomas Walford, but of him we hear no more, exc. that he d. 1664. Hincksman was the common perversion of Henchman.

HINDS, JAMES, Salem 1637. See Haynes.

HINE, THOMAS, Milford 1646. There the name contin. and THOMAS, perhaps gr.s. of the preced. m. 18 Nov. 1684, Hannah Bristoll, d. of Henry, had Thomas, Stephen, William, Elizabeth Alice, and Samuel, made, Mr. Porter informs me, resid. legatee, and his will ment. sis. Lane. But certain. most of the ch. would have been (especial. the ds. wh. bear surnames of hs.) by a former w. He d. 1698, his inv. is dat. 15 Mar. 1697, i. e. 8.

HINMAN, BENJAMIN, Woodbury, s. of Edward, m. 12 July 1684, Elizabeth Lamb, or Lumm, had Annis, bapt. 1680, d. young; Hannah, Oct. 1686; Adam, Jan. 1688; Noah, July 1689; Benjamin, Apr. 1692 Elizabeth Feb. 1694; Eunice, May 1696; Annis, again, Sept. 1697; Rachel, Dec. 1700; Edward, Oct. 1702; Samuel, Dec. 1704; Wait, Oct. 1706; and Mercy Dec. 1709. EDWARD, Stamford, bef. 1650, rem. to Windsor, m. Hannah, d. of Francis Stiles, rem. to Stratford, 1653, d. 26 Nov. 1681. His ch. were Sarah, b. 1653; Titus, 1656; Samuel; Benjamin, 1662; Hannah, 1666; Mary, 1668; Patience, 1670; and Edward, 1672. EDWARD, Stratford, s. of the preced. by w. Hannah, had Samuel, John, and Ebenezer, beside nine others. SAMUEL, Southbury, br. of the preced. had w. Sarah, but no ch. 

*TITUS, eldest s. of the first Edward, m. Hannah Coe of Stamford, and next, Jan. 1702, Mary Hawkins, whose f. is not told or that of the first was capt. and rep. 1715, and later, d. Apr. 1736, leav. Ephraim, bapt. 26 July 1685; Joseph, June 1687; Andrew, b. Apr. 1690; Titus, June 1695, d. prob. young; Ebenezer, 4 Jan. 1703; Titus, again, 4 Mar. 1704 Eleazer, May 1706; and Timothy, bapt. Mar. 1709; beside Mary, b. Feb. 1714, who m. David Bostwick; Hannah, Mar. 1721, m. Samuel Twitchell; and Patience, July 1722. Descend. of the ancest. [[vol. 2, p. 427]] make a num. list in the catal. of Puritan sett. of Conn. by one in the fifth generat. Royal R. Hinman, late Secr. of that State; but I lament that the date of coming of the progen. as a ch. or of his parents is not ascert. Of this indefatig. antiq. we must regret, that his assiduity was greater than his success.

HINSDALE, HENSDELL, or HINDSELL, sometimes ENSDELL, BARNABAS, Hatfield, s. of Robert, m. 15 Oct. 1666, Sarah, wid. of Stephen Taylor of Hadley, d. of John White (who for third h. had Walter Hickson), by her had Barnabas, b. 20 Feb. 1668; Sarah; Elizabeth 29 Oct. 1671; b. 1667; and Isaac, 15 Sept. 1673; and Mary, 27 Mar. 1676; rem. to Deerfield, there was k. by the Ind. in the fight, 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook. Both his s. had fams. at Hartford. EPHRAIM, Hatfield, br. of the preced. m. 28 Sept. 1676, Mary, d. of John Plimpton, had John, b. 1677; and two ds. Experience, 1679; and Mehitable, 1681. He had rem. to Deerfield, but came back, and d. 1681. Experience m. Nathaniel Clark of Medfield; and Mehitable m. Nathaniel Wright of the same place. EXPERIENCE, Deerfield, br. of the preced. m. 1672, Mary, d. of John Hawks, and d. 1676, leav. two ds. His wid. m. next yr. John Evans. GAMALIEL, Medfield, is prob. error, for Samuel. JOHN, Deerfield, br. of Ephraim, k. at the same time with his f. in Philip's war. Perhaps he had fam. for one John H. d. at Deerfield, 1705, whose est. was giv. to a br. and four sis. and all may have been ch. of this sufferer. 

*ROBERT, Dedham, one of the found. of the ch. there 8 Nov. 1638, freem. 13 Mar. 1639, by w. Ann had Barnabas, b. 13, bapt. 17 Nov. 1639; Gamaliel, perhaps mistak. for Samuel, 5, bapt. 13 Mar. 1642; Mary, 14, bapt. 25 Feb. 1644; Experience, 23 Jan. bapt. 8 Feb. 1646; John, 27 Jan. bapt. 16 Apr. 1648, but the ch. rec. has this ch. Mary, wh. I assume to be error; and Ephraim, 26 Sept. bapt. 27 Oct. 1650. He was of ar. co. 1645, rem. to Medfield, where he aided in form. ch. thence to Hadley resid. sev. yrs. m. Elizabeth wid. of John Hawks. rem. to Deerfield, there was gather. his harvest in the corn fields, and k. with his s. Barnabas, John, and Samuel, when Capt. Lathrop with the flower of Essex fell at Bloody brook. His wid. m. Thomas Dibble; and d. Elizabeth m. at Boston 7 July 1657, James Rising. 

SAMUEL, Hadley, s. of the preced. m. at Medfield, 31 Oct. 1660, Mehitable Johnson, perhaps d. of Humphrey of Roxbury, had Mehitable, b. 18 Oct. 1663; and he is, perhaps, the same, wh. in rec. of b. at Dedham was call. Gamaliel, by w. Elizabeth had Ann, b. at H. 22 Feb. 1666; and rem. to Deerfield, there had Nahuman, the first male, b. in the town. He was k. by the Ind. 18 Sept. 1675, leav. beside these two three ds. of wh. Sarah m. 1692, Samuel Janes; and s. Samuel, who went to Medfield, was a tanner, d. Jan. 1730, leav. wid. Abigail. Nahuman was f. of Ebenezer, H. C. 1727, ord. 12 Dec. 1733, who was a missionary, and chaplain at Fort Dummer, but bec. a col. and gave his name to the town of Hinsdale in N.
