HOPKINS,CALEB, Plymouth, s. perhaps youngest, of Stephen the first, but old eno. to bear arms 1643, d. at Barbados, prob. unm. yet call. "heir apparent," and made excor. in the will of his f. of 6 June 1644; wh. makes more remarka. the fact of Giles being elder s. as relat. by Gov. Bradford, and raises a doubt, whether the f. had not been overruled to injust. by his sec. w. CALEB, Eastham, s. of Giles of the same, had Caleb, Nathaniel, Thomas, and Thankful, but by w. or whether bef. or after his rem. to Truro is not told. He d. 1728. ń α EDWARD, Hartford, came to Boston 1637, with Rev. John Davenport, and Gov. Theophilus Eaton (the d. of whose sec. w. Yale, was w. of H.), and went to Hartford perhaps the same yr. was chos. Assist. in 1639, and Gov. next yr. and thereafter in alternate yrs. with John Haynes until he went home in 1652, and even in his absence, thro. hope of his coming, back, he was again chos. in 1654. He had been, bef. coming hither, "a Turkey merch. in London," Says Hutch. I. 82, "of good credit and esteem," yet, tho. a thoro. puritan, he was not a mem. of the Mass. Comp. in London. But his intimate friend Eaton was one of the most active. After reach. home, he was soon made a mem. of Oliver's Parliam. and a commiss. of the Navy, made his will 17 Mar. 1657, and d. soon, in 58th yr. near ten mos. bef. Gov. Eaton, and within two or three days of his friend, Col. Fenwick. His wid. Ann, d. of David, or Thomas, Yale, after insanity of over 50 yrs. d. 17 Dec. 1698. The liberal bequest in fav. of Harv. Coll. did not come to be enjoy. for near fifty-seven yrs. See large extr. from his will in a note to Winthrop Hist. I. 228-30. Prob. she had no ch. GILES, Plymouth, eldest s. of Stephen, came with his f. and mo. in the Mayflower; rem. to Yarmouth, m. Oct. 1639, Catharine (on rec. spell. as pronounc. Catorne) Wheldon, had Mary, b. 1640; Stephen, Sept. 1642, wh. was of Eastham, and in infan. was nam. in the will of his gr.f.; John, b. and d. 1643; Abigail, Oct. 1644, m. 23 May 1667, William Merrick; Deborah, June 1648; Caleb, Jan. 1651; Ruth, June 1653; Joshua, June 1657; William, 9 Jan. 1661, wh. was infirm in mind; and Elizabeth Nov. 1664, d. soon; and he d. a. 1690. The last six ch. were b. prob. at Eastham. JOHN, Cambridge 1634, freem. 4 Mar. 1635, rem. to Hartford, was there an orig. propr. the yr. bef. Gov. Edward, to wh. we kn. not if he were related, d. 1654, leav. wid. Jane, and ch. Stephen, b. a. 1634; and Bethia a. 1635, as Goodwin presumes. The wid. m. Nathaniel Ward of Hadley. Bethia m. 27 May 1652, Samuel Stocking of Middletown; and next, James Steele of Hartford. JOSEPH, Charlestown, m. 1 Dec. 1686, Ruth Long, and d. 27 Dec. 1690, aged a. 32. His wid. d. 2 Mar. 1718.
JOSHUA, Eastham, s. of Giles, m. 26 May 1681, Mary, d. of Daniel Cole, had John, b. 16 Apr. 1683, d. at 16 yrs.; Abigail, 9 Mar. 1686; Elisha, 17 Dec. 1688; Lydia, 1 Apr. 1692; Mary, 20 Jan. 1695; Joshua, 20 [[vol. 2, p. 462]]
Feb. 1698; Hannah, 25 Mar. 1700; and Phebe, 11 Mar. 1702. RICHARD, Watertown, was punish. 4 Sept. 1632, for sale to an Ind. of milit. stores. RICHARD, a soldier, Dec. 1675, in Moseley's comp. SAMUEL, Milford 1658, at New Haven, m. 5 Dec. 1667, Hannah, d. of capt. Nathaniel Turner, had Samuel Wait, as Mr. Porter, wh. marks the b. 3 Aug. not 30 foll. would regard this as the first double name on our side of the water. I do not accept the fact; but if Wait be fasten. on the ch. it may seem rather to be nickname for his premature coming, b. 30 Aug. foll.; and Hannah, 2 May 1670; rem. soon after from the Col. STEPHEN, Plymouth, came in the Mayflower, 1620, with w. Elizabeth s. Giles, and d. Constance, both by former w. and by this had Damaris, as also a s. b. on the voyage, call. therefore, Oceanus, but he d. within a yr. He also brot. serv. Edward Dotey, and Edward Leister, the duellists. Deborah was b. prob. in 1622, bef. the div. of ld. Other ch. also, they had, Caleb, Ruth, and ano. d. wh. d. bef. her f. Beside Elizabeth his w. liv. at P. above 20 yrs.; and he d. 1644, had been an Assist. 1633-6. Constance had m. Nicholas Snow, bef. the div. of cattle 1627, and she d. 1676; Deborah m. 1646, Andrew Ring; Damaris m. 1646, Jacob Cooke; and Elizabeth d. 1666, unm. tho. she, instead of her elder sis. (by unusual inadvert. of a corresp. of extraord. accura. in Geneal. Reg. XIV. 89) is call. w. of Snow. Abstr. of his will is in Geneal. Reg. IV. 281. STEPHEN, Hartford, only s. of John, freem. 1657, m. Dorcas, d. of John Bronson, and d. Oct. 1689, in his will ment. six ch. John, Stephen, Ebenezer, Joseph, Dorcas, w. of Jonathan Webster; and Mary, wh. m. Samuel Sedgwick. His will. d. 13 May 1697. The s. John had eight ch. of wh. one was Samuel, Y. C. 1718, min. of West Springfield; and ano. Timothy was f. of Samuel, Y. C. 1741, of Newport, the Rev. amiab. and ingenious elaborater of the theolog. syst. that bears his name. See Eliot's Biog. Dict. STEPHEN, Eastham, s. of Giles, m. 23 May 1667, Mary, a. of William Merrick, had Elizabeth b. the last wk. of June 1668; Stephen; 15 July 1670; Ruth, Nov. 1674; Judah, Jan. 1678; Samuel, Mar. 1682; Nathaniel, 1684; Joseph, 1688; Benjamin, Feb. 1690; and Mary, 15 Apr. 1692. He d. 10 oct. 1718, hav. m. 1701, 2d w. Bethia Atkins, wh. d. 25 Mar. 1726. All the s. m. and had fams. of wh. I would glad. offer details, were they in my power. THOMAS, Providence 1641, had foll. Roger Williams in 1636 from Plymouth, m. Elizabeth d. of William Arnold the first, had William, and Thomas; sw. alleg. to Charles II. in June 1668, as did Tho. jr. in May 1671; was rep. some yrs. and progenit. of Stephen, the Gov. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 4. I suppose he had Joseph, and perhaps other childr. certain. William; and d. 1699.
THOMAS, Providence, s. of the first Thomas, m. (or at least was publish.) 1 Apr. 1678, to Mary Smith, yet whose d. she was may not be kn. WILLIAM, Stratford 1640, an Assist. 1641 and 2, but it is unkn. whence he came, when be d. or what w. or ch. he had. Perhaps it was his d. Mary, wh. after his d. in virtue of a contr. of m. made by her mo. Mary, w. of Richard Whitehead, of Windsor (wh. was liv. 1670), with William Lewis of Farmington, 1644, bec. w. of William Lewis, s. of the bargainer. If so, we might infer, that our Conn. magistr. was then d. and his wid. wh. [[vol. 2, p. 463]] m. Richard W. was nam. Mary, but no other deduction of value could be drawn.
WILLIAM, Roxbury, had William, Thomas, and Hannah bapt. at once, 6 May 1660; and Mary, 30 Mar. 1662; but the town rec. gives none of the bs. exc. Hannah, 3 Jan. 1657; and ment. d. of s. Ebenezer in 1674; and therefore we may suppose he was, at first, a worshipper, not inhab. at R. tho. in 1657, he was made gr.-digger. The s. Thomas in Wadsworth's comp. was k. by the Ind. 21 Apr. 1676, and William was a soldier in 1676, at Northampton, under capt. Turner, k. by the Ind. that yr.; and the f. d. says Farmer, 28 Apr. but my copy of town rec. says 5 Nov. 1688. He is then call. sen. His w. Hannah had d. and d. Mary in 1678. WILLIAM, Providence, sw. alleg. in May 1668 (one mo. bef. his f. Thomas), m. Abigail, d. of John Whipple, had William (wh. by w. Ruth, d. of Samuel and Plain Wilkinson was f. beside three ds. and three other s. of the venerab. Stephen, Gov. of the State, and immortal signer of the Declarat. of Independ. as also of Esek a disting. naval officer, in support of the same cause); there liv. thro. that war, and was reward. for his constancy. Twenty-nine of this name had been gr. in 1834 at the various N. E. coll. but not one at Harv.
HOPKINSON, CALEB, Bradford, perhaps s. of Michael, m. 25 Nov. 1679, Sarah Wallingford. MICHAEL, Boston 1638, was in the employm. of Jacob Eliot, says the rec. of the ch. when adm. 6 Jan. 1639, on 24 Nov. foll. was dism. for the gathering, of ch. at Rowley, where he liv. freem. 13 May 1640, d. 1648, hav. I conject. m. a d. of Richard Swan the first of R. and had Caleb, and John, wh. m. 8 June 1676, Elizabeth d. of John Pearson; nam. in the will of Swan, 1678. Farmer thot. that John, wh. d. 29 May 1704, and Jonathan, wh. d. 11 Feb. 1719, aged 76, at R. were his s. and perhaps he had s. MICHAEL, for one of the name, at a later day, m. Sarah, d. of Thomas Coleman of Newbury.
HOPPER, DANIEL, New Haven, adm. freem. 22 May 1654. Possib. the name should be Hooper.
HOPPIN, NICHOLAS, Charlestown, call. s. of Stephen, had been of Rye, in Conn. jurisdict. m. 1684, Susanna Jacklin, and, next, 13 Aug. 1707, Mabel Shippie, wid. as I judge, of the sec. Thomas; and d. or was bur. at Christ ch. Boston, 31 Aug. 1731. STEPHEN, Dorchester 1633, liv. on Thompson's isl. m. Hannah, eldest d. of Thomas Makepeace, had in 1666, when only 42 yrs. old, Deliverance, John, Stephen, Hannah, Sarah, Thomas, Opportunity, Joseph, and Benjamin, all nam. then in the will of their gr.f. Some yrs. he was of Roxbury, for the rec. of that town has Thomas, b. 21 Mar. 1655; and opportunity, 15 Nov. 1657, wh. m. 17 Jan. 1679, Thomas Lunt of Newbury. The name in Geneal. Reg. XI. 330, is pervert. to Hoppie.
HOPSON, see Hobson. JOHN, Guilford 1664, b. it is said 1610, wh. I doubt, emb. 1635 at London in the Globe, was constable 1666, by w. Sarah had John, b. 16 Mar. 1666; and Francis, wh. d. young. His w. 9 Sept. 1669; and he at Saybrook m. 3 or 9 Dec. 1672, Elizabeth d. of Edward Shipman, had Elizabeth b. 22 June 1674; Abigail, 17 Dec. 1677, d. [[vol. 2, p. 464]] young; and Samuel, 10 Jan. 1684. But prob. this last was by third w. Elizabeth d. of John Alling, of New Haven, as I suppose the sec. w. d. 1683. He, in rec. of 1685, is call. sen and writ. Hopson, and d. 3 July 1701. His eldest d. Elizabeth m. Comfort Starr, s. of Comfort of Middletown, and gr.s. of Thomas. JOHN, Guilford, s. of the preced. m. 28 Feb. 1701, Dorothy, d. of William Lord of Saybrook, had John, b. 22 Mar. 1703; and Sarah, 14 Aug. 1705. His w. d. 12 Oct. foll. and he m. 15 Feb. 1707, Dorothy, d. of Andrew Leete of Guilford; was lieut. and d. 12 Jan. 1731. SAMUEL, Guilford, youngest ch. of the first John, m. 20 Jan. 1710, Mary Fowler, perhaps d. of Abraham, had only ch. Samuel, b. 21 Oct. foll. and the f. d. 27 Dec. 1771, and the mo. d. 12 May 1783, but their s. d. 1760.
HORD. See Hurd.
HORN, or HORNE, ARMSTRONG, Exeter, is giv. as the name of one wh. took o. of fidel. 30 Nov. 1677, I suspect an error. JOHN, Salem 1630, came, prob. in the fleet with Winthrop but may have been earlier, freem. 18 May 1631; was deac. and, Bentley says, in 1680, req. assist. by collea. "as he had been in that off. above fifty yrs." d. 1685, aged 82; had Recompense, bapt. 25 Dec. 1636; and Jonathan, b. 28 July, bapt. 1 Aug. 1658; both d. bef. the f. beside these wh. outliv. him, John; Simon, 28 Oct. 1649; Joseph; Benjamin; Elizabeth Gardner; Jehoadan Harvey; Mary Smith; and Ann Felton, 22 Mar. 1657. We may presume that his w. was Ann, as that name appears in Felt's list of earliest mem. of the ch. An Elizabeth H. d. at Newbury, says Coffin, 6 May 1672. All descend. in our day spell Orne (as did he in his last will), wh. count nine among gr. at Harv. Joseph is the s. from wh. is our best kn. stock. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the preced. m. 30 Oct. 1667, Mary Clark, had Mary, b. 23 Aug. foll. and d. at 1 yr. Perhaps he had by sec. w. Naomi that Jonathan, wh. d. 6 Oct. 1701. JOHN, Dover, s. of William, took a w. 30 June 1686, whose surname is not seen, had John. JOSEPH, Salem 1678, s. of John of the same. SIMON, Salem, br. of the preced. m. 28 Feb. 1676, Rebecca Stevens, wid. prob. of Samuel, had Joshua, b. mid. Sept. 1677; and Simon, 11 Jan. 1680.
WILLIAM, Dover, 1659, at Salisbury by w. Elizabeth had only Elizabeth b. 1 Feb. 1662; John, 25 Oct. 1663; William, 11 May 1674; Thomas, 28 Nov. 1676; and Margaret, 10 May 1679; was k. by the Ind. at the assault on Dover, 27 June 1689. Perhaps he had Mary wh. m. 28 June 1686, John Hayes. I think his wid. Elizabeth m. John Waldron. WILLIAM, Dover, s. of the preced. had Thomas.
HORNDEN, or HORNDALL, JOHN, Newport, in the list of freem. 1655, had Mary, b. 6 July 1647, wh. m. John Stanton. See Harndale.
HORNER, or HAWNER, in Col. Rec. EPHRAIM, Rehoboth, was bur. 27 Aug. 1684.
HORNETT, EDWARD, Huntington, L.I. made freem. of Conn. 1664. Perhaps he is the same as Harnett. See that name.
HORRELL, HUMPHREY, Beverly, freem. 1682, is the strange rec. wh. I doubt not is due to the heedlessness of Secr. Rawson, or his assist. [[vol. 2, p. 465]] Unless by strik. off the first letter, I am unable to conject. what it should be.
HORSLEY, JAMES; Newton, m. Martha, d. of the first John Parker, had James. JOSEPH, Rowley 1672, d. 1699.
HORT, JOSEPH, and SAMUEL, Lynn, freem. 1691, perhaps brs. of wh. no more is kn.
HORTMAN, TIMOTHY, a soldier in Philip's war, 1676, for disch. of wh. his w. Catharine made petition, bec. he had serv. 17 wks. and had two ch. Ano. reason we learn from his later petit. in wh. he says he had three ch. Once in the papers it is Heardman.
HORTON, BARNABAS, Hampton 1640, went to Southold, L. I. favored Conn. and was next yr. made an officer. BENJAMIN, perhaps br. of the preced. liv. at same place, same time, and CALEB, too. JEREMIAH, Springfield, s. of Thomas, had Nathaniel, b. 1662; Jeremiah, 1665; Samuel, 1667; Thomas, 1668, Timothy, 1670; John, 1672; Mary, 1674; and Benjamin, 1682; beside two, of wh. I kn. not the names; all liv. when he d. 18 Aug. 1682. JOHN, Guilford, was freem. 1669, but not a propr. 1685. JOSEPH, Southold, L. I. 1662, made freem. of Conn. was, perhaps, br. of Barnabas. THOMAS, Windsor, rem. to Springfield 1638, d. 1641, by w. Mary, wh. m. prob. Robert Ashford, had only Jeremiah, bef. ment. THOMAS, Charlestown, had Thomas, b. 9 Jan. 1655; John, 23 Mar. 1657; and William, 13 Jan. 1659, d. in few days. The name is spelt without H. in early rec. and sometimes Horten.
HORWOOD, JAMES, came in the Christian, early in 1635, aged 30. But no more is kn. of him. Possib. it is the same as Harwood, wh. see. JOHN, Boston 1663, perhaps only transient visit.
HOSFORD, JOHN, Windsor, s. of William, freem. 1652, m. 5 Nov. 1657, Philippa (unless that be error for Phillis) Trall or Thrall, d. of William, had William, b. 25 Oct. 1658; John, 16 Oct. 1660; Timothy, 20 Oct. 1662; Esther, 27 May 1664; Sarah, 27 Sept. 1666; Samuel, 2 June 1669; Nathaniel, 19 Aug. 1671; Mary, 12 Apr. 1674; and Obadiah, 20 Sept. 1677; all liv. when he d. 7 Aug. 1683, leav. wid. and good est.
WILLIAM, Dorchester 1633, Dr. Harris marks him 1630, perhaps without reason; freem. 1 Apr. 1634, when the name is spelt Horseford, rem. to Windsor early with his d. Sarah, wh. m. 1 Nov. 1642, Stephen Taylor of W. and s. John; there his w. d. 26 Aug. 1641; and he m. sec. w. Jane, wid. of Henry Fowkes, prob. rem. to Springfield, and there preach. from Oct. 1652 (when Moxon gave up in disgust), to Oct. 1654, and after sev. yrs. both went home. In Eng. 1656 he gave ld. at W. to his two ch. and his w. also gave some of her Id. to the ch. of W. and to her h.'s childr. and to Esther Samwise, and to a sis. Wildish in Eng. some of these bef. going home, some after. In 1671, she was at Tiverton, Co. Devon.
[[vol. 2, p. 466]]
HOSIER, SAMUEL, Watertown, came, prob. in the fleet, 1630, with Winthrop req. adm. 19 Oct. of that yr. and was rec. as freem. 18 May foll. m. 13 Oct. 1657, prob. as sec. w. Ursula Streeter, wid. of Stephen, d. 1665, and in his will of 28 July, pro. 3 Oct. of that yr. He made her extrix. names Charles Stearns his s., gives Stephen Payne and his childr. and to his br.'s s. in Eng. and his sis. if liv. to Mrs. Prout, to his w.'s childr. and to his s.
