Three of this name had, in 1828, been gr. at Harv. and five at N. J. coll.

HODGKIN, or HODGKINS, JOHN, Guilford 1665, d. 1681, leav. w. Mary, and ch. John, Mary, Joseph, Thomas, and Elizabeth His wid. m. 6 July 1682, Isaac Johnson. and his heirs were proprs. in 1685. A Thomas Hogkin, possib. of the same fam. was there 1703. SAMUEL, New Haven 1651, perhaps br. of John, by w.

He d. 28 Dec. 1663, and his five s. were proprs. 1685, under the name of Hotchkiss, wh. is the present spelling; but intermediate. it was Hodskis. 

SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of the preced. m. 1678, Sarah Talmadge, had Mary, b. perhaps 1 Jan. 1680; Sarah, 7 Apr. 1681; Samuel, 6 Mar. 1683; James, 8 Dec. 1684; and Abigail, 12 Feb. 1687.

I presume, of Robert Cushman and 21 Dec. 1638, Ann Haynes, was one of the first purchas. of Middleborough. Elizabeth at Plymouth wh. m. 1633, William Palmer of Scituate, and later, John Willis of Bridgewater, was prob. his sis. WILLIAM, Ipswich 1665, d. says Felt, 26 Dec. 1693. Perhaps he is the same ment. by Eaton among early sett. of Reading.

HODGES, ANDREW, Ipswich 1639, freem. 2 June 1641. d. Dec. 1666. His will of 11 Oct. 1665 ment. w. no ch. CHARLES, Lyme, m. 1 July 1686 to Ann; but no farther report of this fam. is found. GEORGE, Salem, mariner, m. 16 Sept. 1663, Mary Hudson, had Catharine, b. 20 Aug. 1664. His w. d. 20 Nov. 1665; and he m. 24 Sept. 1669, Sarah, d. of Joseph Phippen, had Sarah, b.

Tradit. makes him s. of John, or Richard, both of Salem in 1642; but neither is, found in Felt's list. HENRY, Taunton, s. perhaps, of William of the same, m. 17 Dec. 1674, Esther, d. of the brave capt. John Gallop, had Mary, b. 3 Feb. 1676; Esther, 17 Feb. 1678; William, 18 Mar. 1680; Charity, 5 Apr. 1682; Henry; Benjamin; Joseph; John; Ephraim; Elizabeth; and Abigail; was elder of the ch. capt. and d. 30 Sept. 1717, aged 65. His will of 17 of that mo. names with his w. all the s. and ds. all liv. Mary m. a Keith; Esther m. a Southworth; and Charity m. a Leonard. HUMPHREY, Boston 1671, by w. Mary had Humphrey, b. 9 May 1665; and Faircliffe, a s. 3 Jan. 1667; bec. a Quaker, and was whip. 1677. JOHN, Salisbury, an orig. sett. went home to London in 1647. 

JOHN, Charlestown 1633, with prefix of respect in 1636, yet I kn. no more of him, but that his wid. Mary m.3 Jan. 1655, John Anderson. JOHN, Taunton 1668, elder s. perhaps of William, m. 15 May 1672, Elizabeth Macy, prob. d. of George, had John, b. 5 Apr. 1673; Nathaniel, 2 Apr. 1675; Samuel, 20 May 1678; William, 6 June 1682; George, 27 Nov. 1685; Ebenezer, 12 Mar. 1687; and Nathan, 23 Oct. 1690; and d. 1719. His will of 27 May 1719, was pro. 1 Oct. foll. names five s. all but George, and Ebenezer, who prob. were d. NICHOLAS, Plymouth, 1643, in his will of 24 Oct. 1665, has an alias, Miller. ROBERT, Salem, perhaps br. of George, m. 22 June 1665, Mary Pitman, had Mary, b. 10 Mar. foll.; Sarah, 19 Feb. 1668; Tabitha, Jan. 1670; Hannah, 23 Sept. 1672; Elizabeth 15 Sept. 1674; Robert, 25 Jan. 1677; and Bethia, 23 Oct. 1678. But in Essex Hist. II. 151, the surname is giv. Hodg, and so the fam. may be. diff. and prob. the w. was a Pickman, d. of Nathaniel. THOMAS, Charlestown, m. 23 Mar. 1663, Exercise Razor. 

WILLIAM, Salem 1638, was call. to serve on a jury 27 Jan. of the next yr. is thot. to have had brs. John, and Richard, appearing at Salem four or five yrs. later, tho. nothing is told more of either; and Andrew, George, or Nicholas may, as well, seem to be brs. of this William. But the compiler of Rec. of the [[vol. 2, p. 440]] Hodges fam. without any positive author. but by conject. solely, presumes him to be the foll. WILLIAM, Taunton 1643, had w. Mary and two s. John, b. a. 1650; and Henry, a. 1652. Descend. have been num. and hon. See Hedges. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at the N. E. coll.

HODGKINSON, WILLIAM, Plymouth 1623, says Farmer, but we are ignor. where he derived his informat. for he was not a "first comer," had no share in the div. of ld. Perhaps the yr. is wrong, yet I never heard at P. of such a name, and think it means Hodgkins. A Mary H. m. at Boston, 2 Feb. 1654, Samuel Bedwell.

HODGMAN, JOSIAH, Reading nam. by Eaton among early sett. may have been b. a. 1669, Webber, and early brot. up by Thomas H. wh. gave him ld. in 1703, call. him "Josiah H. alias Webber, wh. was dutiful to me as a s. while he liv. with me." He m. 18 May 1691, Elizabeth . . . . wh. d. 5 May 1712; and he m. 3 Dec. 1724 for sec. w. Grace Boutell, wid. of the sec. John of R. by wh. he had no ch. Nor by the first w. do we kn. of more than a single ch. Thomas, b. 18 Feb. 1693, from wh. is deriv. a wide-spr. offspr. The f. d. 24 Mar. 1749; and his wid. d. 19 July 1756. THOMAS, Salem, m. Oct. 1661, Catharine More, says Essex Inst. II. 151, and I hear no more. THOMAS, Reading, m. 12 Aug. 1663, Mary Morrill, the young wid. prob. of Ezekiel of R. is thot. to have had no issue, but to have adopt. the preced. orphan Josiah, in early youth. He d. 28 Aug. 1729; and his wid. d. 10 Nov. 1735, in her 96th yr. as is told by the gr.stone remain. near the ch. with wh. she unit. Nov. 1669.

HODSDON, HODSDEN, or HODSDIN, JEREMIAH, Dover 1665, perhaps had Esther, wh. m. 25 Dec. 1663, Edward Waymouth. NICHOLAS, Hingham 1647, rem. to Cambridge, mak. gr. purch. of ld. on both sides of Charles riv. belong. to Cambridge and Boston, now in Newton and Brighton, and drew sev. others from H. The name is in Col. Rec. spell. Hudson wh. see.

HODSON, HODGSON, or HODSHON, George, Cambridge, came, it is said, very early, by w. Jane had Ann, b. 30 Sept. 1645; and d. Abiah, 3 Apr. 1648. JOHN, New Haven, merch. m. 2 Sept. 1651, Abigail Turner, d. of Nathaniel, had Abigail, b. 25 Mar. 1654; Sarah, 5 Apr. 1657; Mary, bapt. 8 July 1660; John, 1663; both d. soon; Samuel, Sept. 1664, d. young; John, bapt. 7 Apr. 1667; Mary, again, 17 Apr. 1670, d. young; Ann, Feb. 1672, d. at 1 yr.; Nathaniel, H. C. 1693, was a propr. 1685, with prefix of respect, in his will of July 1690, provid. for his s. at coll. He d. Oct. foll. and his wid. d. 1693. Sarah m. 11 Nov. 1684, Rev. Israel Chauncey, as sec. w. JOHN, New Haven, s. of the preced. m. 1 Apr. 1691, Elizabeth d. of the sec. Thomas Trowbridge of the same, had John, b. 5 Feb. 1693, d. soon; John, again, 3 Feb. 1695, wh. d.. unm. 15 Feb. 1721. The f. d. 11 Nov. 1711, leav. good est. and his wid. d. 1 Dec. foll. 

NATHANIEL, New Haven, br. of the preced. of wh. we kn. no more, not even the yr. of his d. but it was prob. a. 1701 at Stratford, at the ho. of his br.-in-law, Rev. Israel Chauncy. He left wid. Abigail, wh. m. Richard Blackleach. ROBERT, Warwick, m. Rachel, d. of Samson Shotton, had Robert, Alice, and Mary. He had come, says Thompson's L. I. in June 1657, over the ocean, and 1 Aug. foll. appear. first at New Amsterdam, [[vol. 2, p. 441]] where he was cruelly beat. and chain. as a Quaker, under the governm. of Stuyvesant. He is call. "an ancient friend, and traveller for God's truth;" and d. 10 May 1696, aged 78 yrs. See VOL II. 73 and 288.

HOGG, JOHN, Mass. 1639. Felt. Perhaps he was only trans. RICHARD, Boston, a tailor, by w. Joan had Joseph, b. Dec. 1637, not 1636, bapt. 25 Aug. 1639; Mary, bapt. 22 July 1641, 6 days old; and John, b. 4, bapt. 10 Mar. 1644; Mary, again, b. 3 Feb. 1647; was freem. 13 May 1640. THOMAS, New Haven 1646, or earlier, was there 1654. Five of this name were landed in Boston, May 1652, by the John and Sarah, from London, to be sold, hav. been made prisoners at Worcester fight, 3 Sept. preced. of not one of wh. we ever hear after. I doubt not, they and the great maj. of their fellows d. of ill treatm. or broken heart.

HOGGRIDGE, or HOGGERIDGE, ABEL, Pemaquid, sw. fidel. to Mass. 1674.

HOLBEECH, HOLBICH, HOLBIDGE, or HOLBRIDGE, ARTHUR, Boston 1635, after 1638 rem. to New Haven, where he was 1646, d. 1648. See Halbridge.

HOLBROOK, CORNELIUS, Weymouth, s. of William the first, by w. Margery, had Mehitable, b. 10 Mar. 1687; and by sec. w. Experience had Elizabeth 23 May 1695; Abigail, 17 Aug. 1697; and William. DANIEL, Roxbury, and d. 23 Aug. 1673, by casualty, was, perhaps, s. of the first John, and by w. Miriam had Daniel, b. 13 Nov. 1671; nor do I kn. more than that his d. Abigail was b. 13 May 1669, and ano. Daniel, wh. d. 12 July 1697, only 2 wks. old, whose mo. was Elizabeth Seaver, m. 29 May 1696. But after long search, I fear the complicat. is too gr. for the same rec. has ano. Daniel, wh. m. 29 May 1698 Abigail Craft, and she d. 5 Nov. 1701. ICHABOD, Weymouth, s. of capt. John of the same, by w. Sarah, d. of John Turner of Scituate, had Abiezer; b. 7 May 1689; David, Sept. 1690; Sarah, 13 Jan. 1695; Elisha, wh. d. a. 1697; and John, 28 Nov. 1699. ISRAEL, Milford, s. of Richard, had w. Mary, and one d. when he d. 1680. *JOHN, Dorchester, perhaps br. of Thomas the first, freem. 13 May 1640, may have rem. for short time to Rehoboth a. 1643, thence to Weymouth; of ch. are thot. to bc Thomas; Richard; Margaret, wh. 16 July 1656 bec. sec. w. of Nicholas Rockett, or Rockwood; Daniel; Samuel; and Nathaniel, of the last, it being, add. that prob. he d. without issue; was rep. 1651, and many yrs. more perhaps; but we have not means of certainty bec. ano. 

*JOHN, of Weymouth, s. of Thomas, b. prob. in Eng. was rep. many yrs. betw. 1651 and 1692, call. lieut. and afterwards capt. I think he was prob. the same whose w. Sarah d. 14 Jan. 1644, but what ch. if any she had, are unkn. but ds. Lois, and Eunice, tw. are b. by the rec. 12 May 1658. By w. Elizabeth d. of that wid. Stream, wh. was sec. w. of John Otis, he also had Experience, 23 May 1661; Ichabod, 30 May 1662; and, earlier or later, sev. more, for his will of 12 July 1699, pro. 14 [[vol. 2, p. 442]] Dec. foll. names w. Mary and ch. John, Samuel, and Ichabod, beside Hannah, wh. m. Ephraim Pierce; all of wh. had ch. in abundance to be ment. in that will. Because his s. Abiezer, wh. d. 1672, is not nam. in that instr. nor any ch. of his, tho. his f. had admin. on his est. it is infer. that he d. unm. at least without progeny; while very good provis. is made for Lydia, wid. of s. Samuel, and his seven ch. A gr.d. Elizabeth w. of James Smith, also gr.d. Abigail Porter, prob. w. of Thomas, s.-in-law, Simeon, or Simon Whitmarsh, and gr.s. of the same name, gr.ds. Ruth, w. of Edward Derby, and Mary, w. of Edmund Johnson, d. Hannah, w. of Ephraim Pierce, with gr.s. Azrikam and Ephraim P. jr. gr.ch. Rachel Peck, Joseph, and Elizabeth Nash, Benjamin, John, Joseph, James, and Eunice Ludden, beside Joseph, Josiah, and Experience Edson, and also s. John with his w. Abigail, their s. John and six ds. and his own s. Ichabod, to wh. the homestead at W. is giv. his w. Sarah and three ch. Now to follow this num. brood may be diffic. and part of it eludes my long research. I presume the w. of Whitmarsh was Sarah; of Joseph Nash, Elizabeth and of Benjamin Ludden, Eunice; and that these three were his ds. Vinton, p. 331, says the sec. w. d. 25 June 1688, aged 64, and that he had for 3d w. wid. Mary Loring. 

JOHN, Weymouth, eldest s. of the preced. by w. Abigail, d. of brave Michael Pierce, had Thomas, b. 15 Jan. 1672; John, 19 Nov. 1686; and six ds. as in their gr.f.'s will refer. to, and as Thomas is omit. we may presume that he d. young. JOHN, Roxbury, came in from Dorchester, bring. s. John, had Elizabeth b. 16 Apr. 1670; both were bapt. 30 Apr. 1671; Abigail, b. 27, bapt. 30 Aug. 1674; and Daniel, 15 Mar. 1676. He d. 25 Dec. 1678, and in his will 9 days bef. names w. Elizabeth and the four ch. JOHN, Roxbury, s. of the preced. freem. 1690, m. 24 Sept. 1684, Mary Cheeny, had John, b. in Boston, 4 Nov. 1686; but no more is kn. PETER, Braintree, s. of Thomas the sec. by w. Alice had John, b. at Weymouth, 24 Sept. 1679; rem. to Mendon, had Peter; Joanna; Joseph; Sylvanus; Mary; Richard; Eliphalet; William; and Samuel; as from his will of 16 Jan. 1712, pro. 29 May foll. call. the last four minors, is ascert. 

RICHARD, Milford 1658, was, perhaps, first at Dorchester, freem. 1648, next, one of the first sett. of Huntington, L. I. d. at M. 1670, leav. w. Agnes, and ch. Abel, Israel, Pelatiah, Mary, Hannah, Patience, John, Daniel, and Abigail, w. of Joseph Hawkins. His d. Mary m. 8 Sept. 1675, Ephraim Wheeler of M. SAMUEL, Weymouth, prob. the freem. 1681, may have been s. of Thomas the sec. by w. Mary had Cornelius; William; Elizabeth; Mehitable; Jane; Persis, b. 11 Oct. 1675; but I doubt no more obscure fam. report can be discern. in any part of the researches. See Mitchell's Hist. of Bridgewater; and Morse's Geneal. Reg. 

SAMUEL, Weymouth, s. of capt. John, by w. Lydia had at W. perhaps, Hannah; certain. Elizabeth b. 30 Sept. 1684; Mary, 18 Nov. 1686; Samuel, 19 Feb. 1689; John, 29 Apr. 1690; and Joseph, 26 June 1694; and d. 1695; and to these ch. [[vol. 2, p. 443]] by the will of their gr.f. John arc add. two more, s. Abia, 1695; and d. Sarah, prob. 1692; but all the seven were minors. His wid. m. 27 Jan. 1705, deac. Joseph Allen, and d. 1745, making, will 2 Apr. and pro. 11 June of that yr. THOMAS, Weymouth 1643, may have come sev. yrs. earlier at W. (whence rem. the first sett. of Rehoboth in that yr.) and tho. he was one of the grantees of R. yet for not going to reside there, his sh. was forfeit. in Jan. 1645. All his ch prob. were brot. from Eng. eldest s. John, b. a. 1617; Thomas, and William, and three ds. He d. I think, early in 1677, at least his will call. hims. of Weymouth was pro. 24 Apr. of that yr. tho. made 31 Dec. 1668, with codic. 5 yrs. later. By it his w. Jane, s. Thomas, and William, ds. Ann Reynolds, Elizabeth Hatch, and Jane Drake, beside gr.ch. John, Peter, and William, are ment. and s. John made excor. 

THOMAS, Braintree, s. prob. of the preced. b. prob. in Eng. had by w. Joanna, Thomas; John, b. 15 Oct. 1653; Peter, 7 Aug 1655; Joanna, 30 Oct. 1656; Joseph, 10 Apr. 1660; Mary; and Susanna; all exc. John, and prob. Joseph, liv. at his d. 22 July 1697, as we see by his will of 25 July 1695, pro. 19 Aug. 1697. It names, also, w. Jane, and s.-in-law Uriah Clark, who prob. had m. a d. then dec. Having, made Samuel, his neph. excor. he appoints in his place, being dec. Joseph Allen of Braintree. The d. Mary he calls Coleborne, and Susanna had m. 3 Mar. 1694, Andrew Willet of Boston. He serv. in Johnson's comp. Dec. 1675. THOMAS, Braintree, eldest s. of the preced. m. 1666, Deborah Damon, d. of John of Scituate, and sec. w. Mary, d. of Thomas White of Braintree, had, prob. no ch by the first, and by Mary had Thomas, b. 13 Mar. 1693; Mary, 20 Oct. 1700; Hannah, 20 Nov. 1702; Susanna, d. young; Samuel, 29 Apr. 1711; and Abigail, 8 Sept. 1715, wh. d. young. He d. Dec. 1728, quite aged, and his will of 16 Oct. preced. pro. 9 Jan. foll. made w. Mary extrix. wh. d. Feb. 1738. It names only ch. Thomas, Mary, w. of Seth Copeland, their ch. Seth, and his own d. Hannah. As to this progeny, betw. Vinton and Morse there is disagreem. One THOMAS, at Medfield, m. 28 May 1656, Hannah Shephard, and was liv. there many yrs. aft. I am unable to tell more. 

WILLIAM, Weymouth, s. of the first Thomas, prob. b. in Eng. freem. 1647, by w. Elizabeth had William, b. 23 June 1657, or 20 Jan. 1658; and Cornelius, 19 Nov. 1662. He after sett. at Mendon, and had Samuel; John; Milicent; Persis; and Experience; of whose dates we are uninf. WILLIAM, s. of the preced. was of Mendon, there d. 1714, leav. wid. Margaret, but no ch. is ment. in his will of 15 Nov. 1714, pro. 16 Dec. foll. wh. after provid. for w. names two ch. of his br. Cornelius, viz. Mehitable Corbet, and Cornelius, mak. the latter his heirs. One Miriam H. m. 24 May 1675, the third Edward Johnson, and she was, I presume, of Charlestown, but wh. was her f. I ask in vain.

HOLCOMB, BENJAMIN, Windsor, s. of Thomas, m. 11 Apr. 1667, Sarah, d. of James Enno or Enos, had Benjamin, b. 16 Apr. 1668; James, 13 [[vol. 2, p. 444]] Oct. 1671, d. young; Sarah, 1 Feb. 1674; Ann, 19 Mar. 1676; Abigail, 12 May 1681; Samuel, 29 Nov. 1683; Joseph, 7 Nov. 1686; Benjamin, 1 June 1689; and Deborah, 26 Oct. 1690. JOHN, Springfield, may have been s. of Thomas, b. bef. his f. went to Windsor, had Sarah, b. 6 Oct. 1673, and prob. rem. for he is not after heard of. 

JOSHUA, Windsor, s. of Thomas, m. 4 June 1663, Ruth Sherwood, had Ruth, b. 26 May 1664; Thomas, 30 Mar. 1666; Sarah, 23 June 1668; Elizabeth 1670; Joshua, 1672; Deborah, 1674; Mary, 1676; Mindwell, 1678; Hannah, 1680; and Moses, 1686; rem. to Simsbury, perhaps bef. some of the ch. were b. and d. 1 Dec. 1690, leav.
