HUNNIWELL, HUNNUEL, HONYWELL, or HUNNEWELL, JOHN, Wethersfield, m. Elizabeth d. of Daniel Harris of Middletown, was surveyor of the roads 1682. RICHARD, Scarborough, s. of Roger, ens. in 1680, lieut. 1689, perhaps liv. some yrs. at Boston in the worst yrs. of the E. Ind. war, m. Sarah, d. of Nathaniel Adams, went again to impr. his est.; and was capt. k. by the Ind. 6 Oct. 1703. Geneal. Reg. III. 25, and Penhallow. ROGER, Saco, d. 1654. Folsom.

HUNT, BARTHOLOMEW, Dover 1640, I suppose to bc the same, wh. was of Newport 1655, freem. of that Col. there by w. Ann had Bartholomew, b. 7 Dec. 1654; Adam, Sept. 1656; Naomi, 15 Sept. 1658; and Ezekiel, 8 Mar. 1663, or 4; beside others; by whose will of 11 Feb. 1687, pro. 22 June foll. provis. for w. Ann, s. Bartholomew, Ezekiel, and John, and four ds. not nam. is made. The witnesses were John Vaughan, and John Williams, and w. was made with John Albroe, excors. EBENEZER, Northampton, s. of Jonathan, m. 27 May 1698, Hannah, d. perhaps, of sec. William Clark of the same, had Hannah, b. 4 Oct. 1699; Stephen, 24 July 1701; Ebenezer, 30 Aug. 1703; William, 12 Oct. 1705; Abigail, 16 July 1708; Daniel, 17 Aug. 1711; Simeon, 3 Nov. 1713; and Thomas and Esther, tw. 24 May 1716. EDMUND, Duxbury 1637, had, says Winsor, copying Farmer, been of Cambridge 1634, was surveyor of roads 1645; and a propr. of Bridgewater, but prob. did not move thither. EDWARD, Duxbury, d. a. 1656, his inv being of 20 May in that yr. I suspect this person to be the same as preced. for the bapt. names in very many rec are confus. EDWARD, Duxbury 1665, Winsor supposes to be s. of the preced. EDWARD, Amesbury, sw. fidel. 20 Dec. 1677. ENOCH, Weymouth 1640, blacksmith came from Lee, a parish in Bucks, near Wendover, had, perhaps, been at Newport 1639; but at W. had Sarah, b. 4 July 1640; after some yrs. went home, leav. here Ephraim, wh. 18 Nov. 1652, had admin. of est. of [[vol. 2, p. 500]] his f. prob. dec. in Eng. 

ENOCH, Weymouth, s. of the preced. or perhaps more prob. of Ephraim whose s. of this name liv. and d. at Milton; and of his est. 1 Aug. 1707 admin. was giv. to his br. Joseph. ENOCH, Rehoboth, perhaps s. of Peter of the same, m. 29 Oct. 1678, Mary Paine, had Mary, b. 7 Sept. foll.; Peter, 22 Sept. 1681, d. next mo.; Elizabeth 2 Oct. 1682, d. young; and Enos, 28 Jan. 1685. EPHRAIM, Rehoboth 1644, eldest s. of the first Enoch, b. in Eng. at Wendover, I think had childr. perhaps by w. Sarah Barker, at R. rem. to Weymouth there by w. Ebbet or Ebbot had prob. William, b. 1655; certain. Enoch, 29 Mar. 1657 or 1658; and prob. others not in the rec. bef. Joseph, 18 May 1670, was freem. 1671; and was capt. His will of 14 Jan. 1681, pro. 7 Apr. 1687, calls hims. sen. gives the unusual name of his w. and ment. eldest s. Thomas, Ephraim, John, William, Enoch, and Joseph. α*EPHRAIM, Weymouth, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Joanna, d. of John Alcock had John, b. 11 Dec. 1679; Samuel, 8 Feb. 1682, H. C. 1700, min. of Dartmouth, d. 1730; John, again, 23 Nov. 1687; Peter, 8 Mar. 1690; William, 14 Mar. 1692; Ebenezer, 6 Apr. 1694; and Thomas, 1 May 1696; was rep. 1689, 90, and 1, a Col. by this honor led on to partake in the preposterous exped. of Phips to the St. Lawrence, in command of a comp. soon after ret. was made in 1703 a couns. till d. June 1713. ISAAC, Concord, prob. s. of William of the same, m. 14 May 1667, Mary, d. of the first Daniel Stone. JOHN, Boston 1674, butcher, m. Martha, d. of James Neighbors, had John, b. 24 Mar. 1676; and Martha, 5 June 1678; and ano. d. JOHN, Boston, mariner, was tak. by the French, and in the prison at Rochefort, made his will 22 Jan. 1690, pro. by a return. fellow-prison. 13 Feb. 1691, in wh. he gives all to his Mehitable, or, if she were d. to his br. Arthur, and two sis. JOHN, Weymouth, br. of the sec. Ephraim, m. 19 Oct. 1686, Ruth, d. of Edmund Quincy the sec. had John, b. 23 Nov. 1687; Daniel, 17 Nov. 1689; Josiah, 15 Oct. 1693; Samuel, 30 Oct. 1695; Benjamin, 20 June 1698; and perhaps more; was a capt. d. 18 Mar. 1724, says his cous. Judge Sewall, wh. calls him "an honest man and solid Christian." 

*JONATHAN, Northampton, perhaps s. of John, b. in Eng. or perhaps at Salem, where tradit. would fix his f. as a sett. three yrs. bef. the s. was b. but the evidence is deficient, that his f. was ever in our country; m. 3 Sept. 1662, Clemence, d. of Thomas Hosmer of Hartford, had Thomas, b. 23 June 1663; Jonathan, 1664, d. soon; Jonathan, again, perhaps 20 June 1666; John, 22 Dec. 1667, d. unm. 1713; Hannah, 7 Jan. 1669; Clemence, 8 Jan. 1672; Ebenezer, 3 May 1674, d. soon; Ebenezer, again, 6 or 27 Feb. 1676; Mary, 24 Mar. 1680; Sarah, 20 July 1682; and Samuel, 15 Sept. 1684; was freem. 1680, deac. and was a gr.s. of Gov. Webster, as in his will, of 25 June 1659, ment.; rep. 1691, d. 30 [[vol. 2, p. 501]] Sept. of that yr. aged, as is said, only 54. His wid. m. 1694, the sec. John Smith of Milford, as sec. w. and outliv. him; s. Thomas, and Ebenezer rem. to Lebanon. 

JONATHAN, Northampton, s. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of deac. Samuel Williams of Roxbury, and d. 1 July 1738, and his wid. d. 21 Mar. 1751.

JOSEPH, Weymouth, prob. s. of first Ephraim, by w. Margaret had Margaret, b. 29 Apr. 1694. NEHEMIAH, Concord, s. of William, freem. 1690. *PETER, Rehoboth 1644, f. I suppose, of the ch. wh. d. Mary, 23 Aug. Peter, 25 Aug. Tabitha, 14 Oct. all in 1676; had prob. others beside Elizabeth w. of James Willet; was rep. 13 yrs. from 1654. Baylies, II. 198. PETER, Rehoboth, call. jr. prob. s. of the preced. was lieut. and his s. Daniel was bur. 15 Sept. 1673. Perhaps as sec. w. he m. 24 Dec. 1673, Rebecca Paine; and he liv. not long if the Paine Fam. Geneal. be right, wh. makes Samuel Peck m. Rebecca Paine, d. of the sec. Stephen. RALPH, Newtown, L. I. 1656, adm. freem. of Conn. 1664; d. 1677. His s. Ralph, Edward, John, and Samuel, were valua. inhabs. and he had two ds. Ann, and mary, d. Ann m. Theophilus Phillips. Branches of this fam. are at Jamaica, L. I. and Newtown, L. I. and one went to N. J. Riker, 83. RICHARD, Boston, by w. Mary had Richard, b. 4 Aug. 1676, d. young; and Richard, again, 3 Oct. 1680. He d. 26 Sept. 1682, aged a. 48 yrs. says the gr.stone, wh. tells that he was from Portsmouth, in Co. Hants, and to his w. Mary was giv. admin. 5 Feb. 1683. ROBERT, Charlestown 1638, an orig. propr. of Sudbury, as was, also, a wid. H. perhaps his mo. or a br.'s w. SAMUEL, Concord, perhaps s. of William, freem. 1634. 

SAMUEL, Duxbury 1663-90, says Winsor, and I wish he had said more. SAMUEL, Concord, perhaps s. of Samuel of the same, freem. 1690. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Jabez, b. 17 June 1654; and John, 11 Apr. 1656, d. in Aug. foll.; and the f. d. in few mos. for his inv. I find dat. 13 Aug. 1657 by his w. Elizabeth wh. m. 4 Nov. foll. Matthew Barnes. *THOMAS, West Chester, in jurisdict. of N. Y. but claim. by Conn. at whose gen. court he was made freem. 1663, and was rep. Oct. 1664. THOMAS, Duxbury, k. 26 Mar. 1676, in the comp. of capt. Pierce at Rehoboth, but Winsor does not specify. The battle was one of the hardest of Philip's war. See Newman's despatch in Deane, 123. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Joanna had Thomas, b. 30 Oct. 1677; and I suppose the same by w. Mary, had Thomas, 21 Aug. 1681; Priscilla, 11 Apr. 1688; Mary, 11 Oct. 1690; Sarah. 9 Dec. 1692; Joanna, 29 Mar. 1695; Martha, 26 Jan. 1697; Jabez, 5 Apr. 1698; and Elizabeth 2 Apr. 1700. THOMAS, Northampton, freem. 1684. 

THOMAS, Boston, eldest s. of Enoch, blacksmith, by w. Judith [[vol. 2, p. 502]] had Thomas, b. 11 Nov. 1674; Ephraim, 17 Apr. 1677, d. soon; Ann, 11 May 1679; Ephraim, again, 17 Feb. 1681; Elizabeth 21 Dec. 1686, d. soon; and Elizabeth again, 4 Jan. 1688. WILLIAM, Concord, freem. 2 June 1641, had Samuel, bef. ment. Nehemiah, Isaac, William, wh. d. bef. his f. and sev. ds. of wh. perhaps the youngest ch. was Hannah, b. 12 Feb. 1641. His w. Elizabeth d. 27 Dec. 1661. He rem. to Marlborough, m. 1664 Mercy, wid. of Edmund Rice, wh. had been wid. of Thomas Brigham, whose maiden name was Hurd; d. Oct. 1667. The will of 21st of that mo. names d. Elizabeth Barnes, cous. Potter, and William, s. of his s. Samuel. This gr.s. was, perhaps, a soldier in the comp. of capt. Turner, at Northampton 1676. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Sarah had Thomas, b. 23 Mar. 1682; and Ann, 23 Feb. 1686. WILLIAM, Weymouth, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 8 Feb. 1688; and William, 17 May 1693. 

ZACCHEUS, HULL, freem. 1680. Nineteen of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and twenty-one at the rest of the N. E. coll. Calamy, II. 747, says, a min. of this name wh. had been sett. in Wroxall, Co. Warwick, came after eject. to N. E. but does not give the time; and as no such person is ever told of on our side of the water, it may be a mistake, or he must have gone to some S. col.

HUNTER, JOHN, New Haven 1644, d. 1648, or early next yr. prob. without fam. gave his little prop. to Sarah, w. of Willilam Meaker, Mary, wid. of William Preston, and to Peter Mallory. His inv. was only £19. ROBERT, Ipswich, freem. 7 Oct. 1640, had w. Mary, but no ch. as from his will, 1647, is infer. by Coffin. Ano. ROBERT, Ipswich, had there sev. ch. of wh. Thomas was eldest, d. early in 1687. THOMAS, Marblehead 1653, perhaps s. of the preced. THOMAS, Springfield 1678. WILLIAM, Boston, m. 30 Jan. 1657, Cicely, wh. prob. d. soon; and by w. Mary, only ch. of Richard Carter, had Mary, b. 5 Sept. 1659, d. young; Hannah, 22 Nov. 1661; Sarah, 15 May 1663; and Mary, again, 28 Apr. 1665; d. in short time after, and 9 Sept. 1667, admin. was giv. to his w. wh. some yrs. later m. Joseph Cowell. Perhaps this man was passeng. in the Blessing, emb. at London, July 1635, aged 11, with Christian, 20; Elizabeth 18; and Thomas, 14, prob. all under the care of some friend of a diff. name. WILLIAM, Springfield, by w. Priscilla had Sarah, b. 16 Dec. 1662; Priscilla, 2 Mar. 1665; Mary, 15 Aug. 1667; James, 30 Nov. 1669; John, 23 Mar. 1672; Hannah, 6 Dec. 1674; and Abilene, posthum. 1 Jan. 1677; He was k. by the Ind. 4 July 1676. Priscilla m. 1 Nov. 1683, Samuel Kent; Sarah m. 1679, Benjamin Downing; but perhaps an older d. Catharine m. 1673, Walter Holliday. His wid. m. at Springfield, 7 Feb. 1678, David Frow. WILLIAM, Barnstable, m. 17 Feb. 1671, Rebecca, d. of Austin Bearce, Alice, and Rebecca. Nine of this name had been gr. at the N. E. coll. in 1835; but none at Harv.

HUNTING, JOHN, Dedham, freem. 13 Mar. 1639, one of the found. of [[vol. 2, p. 503]] the ch. the yr. bef. and first rul Eld. by w. Esther had John, b. prob. in Eng.; Samuel, b. 22 July 1640; Nathaniel, 15 Dec. 1643, d. in few days; Margaret, b. in Eng. m. 24 Mar. 1646, Robert Ware; other ds. Mary Buckner, wh. had been, perhaps, wid. of William Jay; Esther m. 26 Dec. 1649, Nathaniel Fisher; and one wh. m. John Peck of Rehoboth. Much of this detail is obt. from will of the w. Esther, 4 Jan. 1676, made with cons. and confirm. of her h. and pro. 12 Feb. 1685, in wh. John is call. oldest s. the childr. of her dec. d. Ware, and others are ment. as Samuel, her s. of Charlestown, and his w. Hannah; Esther, d. of s.-in-law John Peck of Rehoboth; and a legacy of some amt. from her br. Francis Seaborn in Eng. is spoken of as then due. 

JOHN, Dedham, eldest s. of the preced. m. 18 Apr. 1671, Elizabeth d. of Thomas Payne of D. had John, b. 30 May 1672, d. soon; Nathaniel, 15 Nov. 1675, H. C. 1693, ord. min. of Easthampton, L. I. Sept. 1699; Esther, 19 Nov. 1677; Rebecca, 13 Jan. 1680; Samuel, 14 Mar. 1682; Elizabeth 2 Feb. 1683; Ebenezer, 1 Jan. 1685; Stephen, 14 May 1688; and Jonathan, 27 Jan. 1696; was freem. 1690. SAMUEL, Charlestown, younger br. of the preced. had first been of Chelmsford, m. 24 Dec. 1662, Hannah, d. of Samuel Hackburne of Roxbury, had Samuel, b. 3 Mar. 1665; Samuel, again, 15 July 1666; and Catharine, 2 May 1670, bapt. 28 July 1672, d. next day; Catharine, again, b. 31 July foll. d. soon; Ann, 9 Nov. 1673, d. young; Ebenezer, 27 Aug. 1676; John, 1678, d. soon. Mercy, 13 Mar. 1681; and Hannah, 3 Dec. 1682; beside ano. John, wh. d. soon. He serv. with gr. reput. as capt. of the "praying Ind." wh. took up arms in our cause against their countrymen in Philip's war 1675 and 6; and was honor. as tythingman 1679, and one of the selectmen 1690. Three of this name had been, in 1826, gr. at Harv. and six at Yale.

HUNTINGTON, CHRISTOPHER, Norwich, s. of that Simon, wh. d. of smallpox, on his passage from Eng. to Boston 1633, brot. with his brs. says the contem. ch. rec. of Roxbury, by their mo. Margaret, wh. liv. at R. until 1635 or 6, when hav. m. Thomas Stoughton of Dorchester, the fam. rem. to Windsor; bef. com. of age he was at Saybrook, there liv. many yrs. was freem. 1658, but m. at Windsor, 7 Oct. 1652, Ruth, d. of William Rockwell, had Christopher, b. Jan. 1653, d. soon; Ruth, Apr. 1658; Christopher, again, 1 Nov. 1660, the first male of the new town of Norwich; Thomas, 18 Mar. 1664; John, 15 Mar. 1666; Susanna, Aug. 1668; Lydia, Aug. 1672; and Ann, 25 Oct. 1675; and he d. prob. 1691, tho. it is not ment. in rec. Ruth m. Samuel Pratt of Saybrook, and d. 1683; and Susanna m. 10 Dec. 1685, Samuel Griswold. Descend. of this man and his br. Simon have been of the most reput. charact. in civ. and eccles. and milit. serv. especially in the war of Independ. Tradit. for a wonder, made the com. of the ancest. many yrs. later than the truth; but to show its capacity for error, it ridiculous. [[vol. 2, p. 504]] carr. him to Conn. riv. where not more than three ships from Eng.in the century and a half bef. our Revo. came; and at the time of his emigr. near the close of the reign of Charles I. as it tells, he had br. Samuel, "a capt. of the King's life guard, much in his favor." Of this absurdity a hardihood of conject. may suggest, that it means capt. of the guard of the royal prison. during his sad confinem. at Carisbrook castle. 

See Geneal. Reg. I. 343, and the sweet morsel repeat. in V. 163. Had the story nam. the place of resid. in Eng. we should be more grateful, and almost forgive the common looseness of the modern fam. legend with its careless chronol. CHRISTOPHER, Norwich, s. of the preced. m. Sarah, d. of deac. Thomas Adgate, and for sec. w. Judith, wid. of Jonathan Brewster, was deac. had Ruth, b. 20 Nov. 1682; Christopher, 12 Sept. 1686 Isaac, 5 Feb. 1688; Jabez, 26 Jan. 1694; Matthew, 10 Apr. 1695; Hezekiah, 16 Dec. 1696; Sarah, 5 Jan. 1699; Jeremiah, 15 Dec. 1702, d. young; Judith, 10 Sept. 1707; John, 14 Nov. 1709; Elizabeth 6 May 1712; and Jeremiah, again, 20 Dec. 1715.

SIMON, Norwich, br. of the first Christopher, prob. b. in Eng. was freem. 1663, m. Oct. 1653, Sarah d. of John Clark, perhaps at Saybrook, had Sarah, b.

His wid. d. 1721, aged 88. THOMAS, Windsor, br. of Christopher and Simon, and prob. eldest, tho. by tradit. the name giv. is Samuel, was freem. of Conn. 1657, liv. at Branford, m. Hannah, d. of Jasper Crane, and had Samuel, prob. accomp. many of his neighb. wh. went with Pierson to found the town and ch. of Newark. WILLIAM, Salisbury 1640, prob. was of Hampton 1643, but rated in 1650 at S. had w. Joan, and ch. John, b. Aug. 1643; and Mary, 8 July 1648, wh. m. 14 Aug. 1667, Joshua Goldsmith. Ano.

HUNTLEY, JOHN, Boston 1652, by w. Jane had Moses, b. 1 July 1654; and Aaron, 15 Apr. of the same yr. if the rec. be true; was of Roxbury 1659, and rem. perhaps in one or two yrs. to Lyme, was there [[vol. 2, p. 505]] when that town was incorp. by separat. from Saybrook in 1667, hav. other ch. Elizabeth and Mary. He m. sec. w. 1669, Marg Barnes,had Sarah, and Alice by her, and d. 1676. Aaron had w. Mary; Moses m. 18 Jan. 1680, Abigail Comstock; and descend. of both are num.

HUNTON, WILLIAM, Hampton 1644, perhaps had Philip, wh. is seen in New Hampsh. 1689. It may be, descend. double the o.

HUNTRESS, GEORGE, Portsmouth 1688, was of the gr. jury that yr. and in the next, with many others, pray. for jurisdict. of Mass. to be extend. to them.

HURD, ADAM, Stratford, br. of John the first, liv. there 1650 to 69, had w. Hannah, and s. John. BENJAMIN, Boston, s. of John of the same, had w. Elizabeth but both d. 1679, leav. one ch.

Nathaniel, wh. was the earliest engraver on copper in our country, and engrav. the seal of Harv. coll. was a gr. gr.s. The name was often in Boston writ. Hord. *JOHN, Windsor, among first sett. but not, like most of them, from Dorchester, rem. with the early sett. to Stratford, rep. 1649, 56 and 7, still in 1671 a promin. man. He was prob. f. of one of the two Johns of S. in the next generat. ment. below. JOHN, Boston 1639, by w.

He was a tailor, freem. 13 May 1640, and d. 23 Sept. 1690. 

JOHN, a freem. of Mass. 1652, was, perhaps, a weaver of Lynn, with w. Elizabeth in 1657. JOHN, Stratford, the freem. 1669, prob. s. of the first John, m. 10 Dec. 1662, Sarah, d. of John Thompson of S. had, as we learn from the will of her br.
