HOUGHTON, *JOHN, Lancaster, came in the Abigail from London 1635, with certif. of two Justices, and the min. of Eaton Bray, near Dunstable, Co. Bedford, at the age of 4 yrs. says the custom ho. rec. yet it is doubtful what those dignitaries could certify; was not of Watertown, as Farmer had said, for Dr. Bond finds not the name, so that we may assign him to Concord or to either of the three or four towns then inhab. between the seashore and the central wilderness; rem. to Lancaster, a. 1652, had w. Beatrice and ch. Beatrice, b. 3 Dec. 1665; Benjamin, 25 May 1668; Sarah, 30 July 1672; and was rep. 1690, and sev. yrs. after new Chart. JOHN, Woburn, had Henry, b. 23 Feb. 1676; Joseph, and Benjamin, tw. 26 Feb. 1678; Mary, 7 Feb. 1680; Mercy, 15 Mar. 1682; may have been s. of the preced. and prob. rem. 

JOHN, Salem, 1692. *RALPH, Lancaster, cous. of the first John, and older, without doubt, by w. Jane had Mary, b. 4 Jan. 1654; John, 28 Apr. 1655; Joseph, 6 July 1657; Experience, 1 Oct. 1659; Sarah, 17 Feb. 1662; and Abigail, 15 July 1664; freem. 1668; was town clk. rep. 1673, and 89. Experience m. 22 May 1684, Ezra Clap of Dorchester, as sec. w. RALPH, Dorchester, perhaps s. of the first John, was lost at Port Royal, when the town was sunk by the great earthq. of Jamaica, 7 June 1692, then aged 28 yrs. leav. wid. Mary. ROBERT, Woburn, had Isabel, b. 6 Aug. 1682; but I kn. no more. Perhaps he was s. of John, and may have rem. THOMAS, Lynn 1664. WILLIAM, a butcher, came from London in the Increase 1635, aged 22, went in few yrs. to Conn.

HOUNSLOW, EDWARD, Scarborough 1676.

HOUSE, JOHN, Cambridge, d. 22 Apr. 1644; but prob. Farmer should have call. him ch. of Samuel, and not given this prominence. SAMUEL, Scituate 1634, one of the found. of the ch. 8 Jan. 1635, had Elizabeth bapt. 23 Oct. 1636; Sarah, 1 Aug. 1641; rem. to Cambridge, and prob. some [[vol. 2, p. 470]] other town, where he may have had Samuel bef. going to S. He prob. liv. some yrs. at Boston or Cambridge, there had John, b. 6 Dec. 1642, wh. I presume, d. at 1 1/4 yrs.; for the name is never repeat. at C. in b. d. or m.; but at Scituate had John, again, bapt. 18 May 1645; and d. 1661. His w. Elizabeth was d. of William Hammond, and sis. of William Paine; at least in Paine's will is left good legacy to Elizabeth H. d. of Samuel and Elizabeth SAMUEL, Scituate, s. of the preced. a shipwright, m. 1664, Rebecca, d. of Thomas Nichols, had Samuel, b. 1665; Joseph, 1667; Rebecca, 1670; John, 1672; and Sarah, 1678, wh. m. 1710, James Cushing. WALTER, New London, d. 1670, leav. w. and ch. John; but no more is kn. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Mary had d. America, b. 30 Apr. 1660.

HOUSING, PETER, Casco 1666-73. Willis, I. 121, 140. His inv. was of Apr. 1673, wid. Sarah, admx. childr. minors, not nam. exc. Sarah.

HOUSLEY, JOSEPH, Rowley 1691.

HOVEY, DANIEL, Ipswich 1637, by w. Rebecca, d. of Robert Andrew, of the same, had Daniel, b. 1642; John, wh. may have been the eldest; Thomas, 1648; James, k. by the Ind. 2 Aug. 1675, at Brookfield; Joseph; Nathaniel, 20 Mar. 1657; Abigail, wh. m. it is said, Thomas Hodgkins; and Priscilla, wh. m. John Ayers. He rem. to Brookfield 1668, thence, bef. the destruct. of the town, in Philip's war, to Hadley, but went back to I. and d. aged 73, perhaps 4 or 24 Apr. 1692. His w. had d. 24 June 1665. DANIEL, Ipswich, s. of the preced. freem. 1674, m. 8 Oct. 1660, Esther, d. of Thomas Treadwell of the same, had Daniel, b. 24 June 1666 (I presume, tho. the rec. says 1665, for this b. and 1666 for the m.); Nathaniel, 9 Oct. 1667; Abigail; Thomas, 28 May 1673; John, 13 Aug. 1675; Mary, 27 June 1678; Ebenezer, 11 Jan. 1680, d. soon; Ebenezer, again, 11 Jan. 1682; and Mercy; and d. 29 May 1695. His will, made three days bef. nam. all the ch. but Daniel and Mary, was pro. 25 June foll. and appoints Nathaniel, and Thomas excors. 

JAMES, Ipswich, br. of the preced. had s. Daniel, but we kn. nothing more of him, exc. the fam. tradit. of his d. as above. JOHN, Ipswich, s. perhaps eldest, of first Daniel, m. 13 Aug. 1665, Dorcas Ivory of Topsfield, had John, b. Dec. 1666; Dorcas, 16 Jan. 1668; a d. b. 20 Feb. 1671, wh. d. in few days; Elizabeth 18 Jan. 1672; Susanna; Luke, 3 May 1676; Ivory; and Abigail, 28 Apr. 1680. His will of 22 Mar. was pro. 7 Apr. 1718. JOSEPH, Hadley, br. of the preced. m. 1676, Hannah Pratt, perhaps d. of John of Hartford, had Joseph, b. 1677; Ebenezer, 1680; Hannah, 1682; John, 1684; Caleb, 1687; and Thomas. He rem. perhaps to Cambridge, but d. at Milton, May or June 1690. 

JOSEPH, Cambridge, m. 10 Dec. 1702, Mary, d. of John Marrett of the same, had Amos, b. 26 Jan. 1712, and perhaps others. NATHANIEL, Ipswich, br. of James, perhaps youngest, m. Nov. 1679, Sarah Fuller, had Sarah, b. 17 Sept. 1680; Elizabeth 25 Mar. 1682; [[vol. 2, p. 471]] Nathaniel, 29 June 1691; and Esther, 23 Dec. 1693; but both of these latest were ch. of the sec. w. Mary, wh. had admin. of his est. 1696, and soon m. John Brown of I. All the ch. exc. Nathaniel were d. in Nov. 1701. *THOMAS, Hadley, m.

He was freem. 1681, lieut. rep. 1699, and 1703, and d. 1739. Daniel d. at 22, prob. unm. Thomas m. but had only ds. and in that part of the country the name ceased. THOMAS, Ipswich, s. of the first Daniel, by w. Mary had Esther, b. 22 Dec. 1693; but I hear nothing further, unless (as seems unlikely), he be the same as preced. Five of this name had been gr. at Harv. in 1834, and four in other N. E. coll.

HOWARD, DANIEL, Hingham, blacksmith, s. of John of Dartmouth, m. 13 May 1672, Deborah Pitts, d. of Edmund of the same, had, perhaps, Daniel, b. in Mar. foll. wh. d. at two yrs. and he may have rem. soon to Dartmouth, where his f. had giv. him lds. the yr. after his m. EDWARD, Boston, m. 7 June 1661, Hannah, d. of Thomas Hawkins the baker; and it is strange that we hear no more of him. EDWARD, Lynn, s. of Robert of the same, by w. Martha had Amos, b. 16 Apr. 1696; and Jane, 4 Mar. 1699. EPHRAIM, Bridgewater, s. of the first John of the same, m. mary, d. of Rev.

HENRY, Hartford, had been at Wethersfield, there m. 28 Sept. 1648, Sarah Stone, perhaps a sis. of Rev. Samuel, had Sarah, b. 1651, d. early; Sarah, again, 1653; Elizabeth 1656; John, and Lydia, tw. 1661; all at W. beside Mary, and Samuel, ment. in his will, not found in the rec. He d. Mar. 1709, leav. good est. The name most freq. is, in the first syl. ay, but the ch. always have o. Sarah m. John Atchet, or Adjet, had John, and Samuel, but d. bef. her f. as did, prob. Elizabeth; Lydia m. Joseph Barnard; and Mary m. Thomas Griswold. John was of Wethersfield; Samuel, a trader at Hartford. JAMES, Boston 1677, of wh. I learn no more. JAMES, Weymouth, had Hannah, b. 23 Sept. 1683. 

JAMES, Bridgewater, s. of the first John, m. Elizabeth d. of John Washburn, had Elizabeth b. 1686; Mercy, 1688; and James, 1690; and d. that yr. in the idle crusade against Quebec. JOHN, Dedham 1636-60. *JOHN, Bridgewater, one of the first sett. brot. up by Capt. Miles Standish, in 1643 was of Duxbury, a carpenter, rep. 1678, and often after, m. Martha, d. of Thomas Hayward, had John, James, Jonathan, Elizabeth Sarah, Bethia, and Ephraim; and is so the progenit. of a disting. and num. fam. always [[vol. 2, p. 472]] call. and spell. Howard. The change came gradually, I think, by first disuse of y in Hayward, and next following the usual sound. Elizabeth m. Edward Fobes; Sarah m. Zaccheus Packard; and Bethia m. Henry Kingman. He d. a. 1700. 

JOHN, Bridgewater, s. of the preced. m. Sarah, d. of Robert Latham, had Susanna; Edward, b. 1697; Robert, 1699; Martha; Sarah; and Bethia; d. bef.1727. JONATHAN, Malden, s. of Samuel of the same, m. 24 May 1695, Elizabeth Lee, had Jonathan, b. 3 June 1691; Elizabeth 24 Dec. 1695; and Nathaniel, 30 July 1700.

He m. 1 July foll. Sarah Parker, prob. d. of Jacob, had Jacob, 28 Mar. 1679, and liv. at Chelmsford. Perhaps he was of Dorchester bef. Charlestown, ar. co. 1641, and freem. 1643. 

NATHANIEL, Malden, s. of Samuel of the same, was freem. 1690. NEHEMIAH, Salem, m. 11 Aug. 1657, Ann, d. of William Dixy, had Sarah, b. 3 Mar. 1659; and Hannah, 1 Aug. 1661. ROBERT, Windsor 1643, is nam. under Hayward, and may be the miller at W. 1683, or is f. ROBERT, Lynn, a. 1641, had Edward. ROBERT, Dorchester, freem. 1653, by w. Mary had Jonathan, Robert, Hannah, Jeremiah, Bethia, Mary, Temperance, and perhaps more, of wh. Mary and some others were b. in Eng. rem. to Boston a. 1660, was a notary pub. and d. perhaps, early in 1683. By the will of his wid. Mary, 2 July, pro. 19 of the same yr. we find some particulars of the fam. Hannah m. 23 June 1670, Samuel Minot. Beside her, the will provides for s.-in-law William Clark, a mariner, wh. had, I presume, m. a d. since dec.; for d. Bethia Messenger; for Samuel Bass, wh. was prob. s. of Samuel, by her d. Mary, wh. had since m. Isaac Jones; for Temperance Smith; for gr.s. John Howard, and his sis. Amy, and Mary, wh. must have been ch. of a s. dec.; for s. Jeremiah; d.

Mar. 1671, Susanna Wilkinson, had Samuel, Feb. 1672; but prob. by sec. w. most of these foll. Abigail; [[vol. 2, p. 473]] Deborah; Ann, Mar. 1669, d. soon; ano.

WILLIAM, Topsfield 1650, was liv. 1666. WILLIAM, Boston 1660, a witness to the will of William Paine, and a legatee also therein. WILLIAM, Malden, had w. Martha, wh. d. 6 May 1662. An Elizabeth H. d. at M. 12 May 1686. WILLIAM, Swanzey 1671, by w. Sarah had Mercy, b. 30 Jan. 1681. Seven of this name had been, in 1829, gr. at Harv. four at Yale, and ten at the other N. E. coll. includ. Union and N. J.

HOWD, ANTHONY, Branford, by w. Elizabeth d. of Matthias Hitchcock, m. Jan. 1673, had John, b. 27 Sept. 1673; Anthony, 11 Nov. 1674; and Benoni, 10 Sept. 1676; d. not long bef. the last was b. for his inv. is of June in that yr. and the wid. m. 22 Aug. 1677, John Nash.

HOWE, ABRAHAM, Roxbury, freem. 2 May 1638, had Abraham, Elizabeth and Sarah, one or more perhaps, b. in Eng.; Isaac, b. here 24 June 1639; Deborah, 4 Sept. 1641; and Israel, 7, bapt. 14 July 1644. His w. of whose bapt. name we are ign. d. the first week of Dec. 1645, "the most sad mortal week that ever Roxbury saw," says Eliot's ch. rec. and he rem. to Boston, perhaps, however, to Dorchester first, and d. 20 Nov. 1683. He had prob. other childr. certainly Esther, nam. in his will, as w. of Henry Mason. That instr. made 26 May 1676, pro. 2 Nov. foll. calls Abraham his eldest s. to him, and Israel, and Isaac gives est. in D. ds. Esther, and Deborah, beside, childr. of d. Elizabeth and childr. (Joseph, Isaac, and Sarah), of d. Sarah; excors. s. Israel, and s. Thomas Pierce; and Thomas Tolman sen. with Thomas Tilestone, sen. Overseers. Of his ch. little is kn. 

ABRAHAM, Roxbury, s. of the preced. prob. b. in Eng. may have liv. in Boston or Dorchester some yrs. had at R. Abraham, bapt. 25 Sept. 1653; and Isaac, 30 Mar. 1656; but I find not any other ch. of his, or the m. tho. others may have been b. elsewhere. ABRAHAM, Watertown, m. 26 Mar. 1658, Hannah Ward, had Mary, b. 30 June 1659; Joseph, 9 Apr. 1661, prob. d. soon; and again, Joseph, 12 Feb. 1662; rem. to Marlborough, had Hannah, 1663; Daniel; Elizabeth 1665; Deborah, 1667; Rebecca, 1668; Abraham, 1670; Sarah, 1672; and Abigail, 1675; and d. 1695. The preced. yr. he kept the inn, at wh. the Commisnrs. of Mass. to treat with the Mohawks, lodged the first night of their journey. Mary m. a Bowker; Hannah m. 1684, Eliezer [[vol. 2, p. 474]] Howe; Elizabeth m. Samuel Brigham; Deborah m. 1688, John Barrett; Rebecca m. Peter Rice; and Sarah m. Joseph Stratton. Bond, 303, thot. him the same as the preced. but I could not concur with him bec. near six mos. after the m. of Watertown Abraham to Hannah Ward, Elizabeth Howe, w. of James of R. is call. his ch. by will of the first John Dane of Roxbury. 

ABRAHAM, Roxbury, s. of the sec. Abraham of the same, had Sarah, b. 8 Dec. 1676; Elizabeth 23 Nov. 1678; and Abigail, 27 Mar. 1682; d. 12 Jan. 1684, and, I think, the wid. m. next yr. Thus f. s. and gr.s. are little separat. in d. ABRAHAM, Lancaster, by w. Mary had Abigail, b. 1702 and was k. by the French and Ind. 31 July 1704. He was prob. s. of Abraham of Marlborough. *DANIEL, Lynn, 1630, freem. 14 May 1631, ar. co. 1637, of wh. he was the first lieut. rep. 1636 and 7, rem. to Southampton, L. I. a. 1640, where he was one of the earliest sett. and purchas. under the Earl of Sterling. DANIEL, Boston, came in the John and Sarah, emb. at London, Nov. 1651, one of the prisoners, freighted in that ship, to be sold, as they unhappily surv. the battle of Worcester, 3 Sept. preced. How long he liv. here is unkn. 

DANIEL, Marlborough, s. of Abraham of the same, m. 1686, Elizabeth Kerley, had Martha, b. 1687; Hezekiah, 1690; Daniel, 1692; Jonathan, 1695; Elizabeth 1697; David, 1700; and Zeruiah, 1702. *EDWARD, Watertown, freem. 14 May 1634, rul. eld. often selectman, and rep. 1635, 6, and 9, had a hard law a suit with Dudley of wh. Winthrop II. 51, speaks fully, and d. 24 June 1644. His wid. Margaret m. George Bunker, and made her will 8 Apr. 1647, pro. 18 Dec. 1660, by wh. she gave one half of her est. to Nathaniel Treadway, Wh. had m. her d. Sufferance, two thirds of the residue to John Stone, wh. had m. her other ch. Ann, and the remainder to her sis. Mary Rogers and her ch. John, and Elizabeth of Boxtead, in Co. Essex. His inv. tak. by John Knowles, William Jennison, and John Sherman, 27 July foll. in our Prob. Rec. II. 22, by the careless clerk who made the Index, is assign. to Edward Parill, and, as if that were not an improb. if not impossib. name, it is tak. into Geneal. Reg,. VIII. 56. 

*EDWARD, Lynn, came in the Truelove 1635, aged 60, with Elizabeth his W. 50, wh. surv. him; and ch. Jeremy, 21; Sarah, 12; Ephraim, 9; Isaac, 7; and William, 6; was freem. 8 Dec. 1636, rep. at Mar. May, and Sept. Courts 1638, and d. Apr. 1639, very suddenly, as Winthrop I. 293, tells. A wid. H. d. at Lynn, 25 Jan. 1672. Felt. ELIEZER, Marlborough, youngest s. of first John, m. 1684, Hannah, d. of Abraham Howe, had Martha, b. 1686; Deborah, 1688; Eliezer, and Hannah, tw. 1692; Gershom, 1694; Ephraim, 1699; and Eliezer, again, 1707; freem. 1690. EPHRAIM, New Haven, s. of sec.

His wid. Ann d. 1712; d. Sarah m. 10 Apr. 1682, Nathaniel Tuttle; Abigail, m. Daniel Brown; and Esther m. 29 Sept. 1692, as his sec. w. James Trowbridge. Of this man, who was a trader to and from Boston, the extreme suffering in return. home in his small vessel of 17 tons, from Sept. 1676 to July foll. is giv. in the first art. of Magn. VI. c. i. wh. had bef. been print. by Increase Mather in his Remark. Providences. Dixwell, the regicide, under the name of James Davids, took for his sec. w. 23 Oct. 1677, Bathsheba How, either d. or niece, no doubt, of Ephraim or Jeremiah. 

EPHRAIM, New Haven, s. of the preced. had Mary, b. 8 Dec. 1674; and I hear no more, but that he and brs. Isaac and Daniel d. 1690. EPHRAIM, Topsfield 1686. ISAAC, Marlborough, br. of Eliezer, m. 1671, Frances Woods, had Elizabeth b. 1673; Sarah, 1675; Mary, 1677; John, 1680, d. soon; John, again, 1682; Bethia, 1684; Hannah, 1688; and Thankful, 1691; and he d. 1724, leav. wid. Susanna. ISAAC, Roxbury, s. of Abraham, prob. the sec. of the same, m. 11 May 1685, Deborah Howe, perhaps a cousin, but wh. was her f. or where, or when she was b. I find not, had in R. Abraham, b. 24 Oct. 1689; Abigail, 4 Feb. 1692; and, perhaps, he rem. ISRAEL, Sudbury, freem. 1680. JAMES, Roxbury, freem. 17 May 1637, rem. to Ipswich bef. 1648, m. Elizabeth only d. of the first John Dane of the same, had Sarah, and prob. more ch. and d. 17 May 1702, in 104th yr. acc. Ch. J. Sewall, having a short time prior giv. evid. as to the bounds betw. Rowley and I. Yet in the Dane pedigree, Geneal. Reg. VIII. 148, it is said he was b. a. 1605; so that he could have been only 96. He came, perhaps, from Hatfield, Co. Essex, or the neighb. His d. Sarah m. it is said, 5 Dec. 1666, John Bridges of Andover. JAMES, Boston, perhaps had liv. at Ipswich, s. of the preced. b. a. 1634, and possib. (for the name is too common to allow certainty), had w. Elizabeth d. of William Jackson of Rowley, was freem. 1669. JEREMIAH, Lynn, s. of sec.

I. and d. 16 Jan. 1691. His d. Elizabeth m. May 1669, James Redfield; and Bethia, m. 23 Oct. 1677, John Dixwell, the regicide, and outliv. him. Jeremiah, Zechariah, and Nathaniel, prob. his s. or nephs. were planters of Wallingford 1670. JOHN, Sudbury, s. of John, Warwicksh. (as a very respect. writer in Worcester Magaz. II. 130, gathers the tradit. speaking of his relation to Howe, Earl of Lancaster, when such a title in the peerage had not existed for near two hundred yrs.), had been a long time at Watertown, freem. 13 May 1640, by w. Mary had John, b. 24 Aug. 1640; Samuel, 20 Oct. 1642; Sarah, 25 Sept. 1644; Mary, 18 Jan. 1646, d. young; Isaac, 8 Aug. 1648; Josiah; Mary, again, 18 Jan. 1654; Thomas; Daniel, 3 Jan. 1638, d. young; Alexander, 1661, d. soon; Daniel, perhaps tw. with the last in b. and d.; and Eliezer, 1662.
