One JOHN, perhaps s. of John of Ipswich, was a witness against poor Mrs. Easty, execut. in 1692, for a witch. How strong his evid. was, is seen in Essex Inst. II. 242. JOHN, Cambridge 1672, the freem. prob. of 1674, was s. of deac. John of the same; d. 17 Oct. 1675, unm. In his will made after d. of his f. his mo.-in-law is rememb. and to his unm. sis.

SAMUEL, Scituate, came in from Plymouth, says Deane; join. the ch. 25 Feb. 1638, and had d. Ann, bapt. 25 Mar. foll. but she was b. says the rec. two or three yrs. bef. and his w. d. in Mar. of the next yr. He m. 20 Nov. 1639, Esther, d. of Richard Sealis, had Bethia, bapt. 14 Mar. 1641; Esther, 5 Feb. 1643; and Samuel, 7 Feb. 1647, was freem. of that col. 1644, rem. to Barnstable, a. 1646, and d. 1682 aged 72. SEABIS, SEBIS, SEBAS, SEBES, or SEBAT, Cambridge, s. of the first Edward, b. perhaps on the passage, whence may have sprung the unchristian name, wh. was, says tradit. guess.

Hannah, d. of James Johnson, had Mary; but tho. so far I obey auth. of Hon. John Wentworth, and would submit to his dictat. whether this Mary shall be w. of John Sherburne, s. of Henry, or John, s. of John; yet I feel gr. scruples a. every thing, without dates. See Geneal. Reg. IX. 180, and 208. THOMAS, Reading, in Mr. Eaton's list of early sett. may have rem. to Boston to be the freem. of 1690; and he, or ano. of the same name m. Elizabeth and Priscilla, ds. of Nathaniel Grafton. Sec note on Geneal. Reg. VIII. 270. WALTER, Dover 1658, was of Portsmouth in 1667; but chief. resid. at D. there was tax. 1661-75, had gr. of ld. 19 Mar. 1666 adj. his own lot; was d. Mar. 1698, when oldest s. William brot. inv.

Twenty one of this name had been gr. at Harv. in 1849, five at Yale, and I kn. not how many at other N. E. coll.

GEORGE, Salem, unhapp. liv. in the vill. now Danvers, charg. with witchcraft, sent to Boston, bec. the gaol in Essex Co. could not hold half of the accus. imprison. from 12 May to July 1692 condemn. 5 Aug. as was Rev. George Burrows, and execut. together on 19. Part of the evid. against him, was extort. by threats from his gr.d. Margaret, wh. under seventeen yrs. of age, also sw. ("not know. what an oath did mean," she says), against Burrows, whose punishm. was, no doubt, more desir. (he being a clerg. of course a more valu. serv. of the devil), by the judges than that of Jacobs. But we may presume, that his greater age made up for his inferior mental capacity. She confess. that it was [[vol. 2, p. 533]] altogether false as to both, but the fate of these subjects was not chang.; nor is it prob. that her own life after thus telling the truth, could have been sav. had not a disorder in the head, perhaps caus. by her imprison. prevent. her trial until the foll. term, when the horrible delus. had begun to dissipate. Burrows forgave her bef. the double execut. His will of 29 Jan. 1692, bef. his accusat. after his execut. was allow. in Oct. 1692. See full acco. in Essex Hist. Coll. I. 52. W. Mary, and d. Ann, w. of John Andrews, beside the s. George are all the relat. exc. the gr.ch.; an honor. descend. in the seventh generat. furnish. that acco. His s. George, and w. Rebecca, mother of this girl thus impiously abused by the judges in open Court, for the glory of God, were also charg. but he escap. by flight, and she by confess. wh. falsehood obtain. her disch. with her d. from prison in Jan. foll.

JAGGER, JEREMY, Wethersfield, one of the first sett. may therefore have been of Watertown, serv. in the Pequot war 1637, rem. 1641 to Stamford, there was master of a trad. vessel, and went to the W. I. four yrs. bef. his d. 14 Aug. 1658 abroad. His wid. Elizabeth m. 12 May 1669, Robert Usher; and in 1671 grants for his conduct in the old war were made to his three s.

JOHN, Stamford, s. of the first Jeremy, propound. for freem. 1670, had Elizabeth aged 18; Hannah, 16; Sarah, 14; Mary, 11; and Jonathan, 9; as appears by the pro. rec. of 16 Feb. 1684, when his inv. is ret. No w. is nam. and his eldest d. d. bef. May 1686. JONATHAN, Stamford, br. of first John, was liv. there 1673, and not in 1687, but whether he had fam. then or after, is unkn. to us.

JAMES, CHARLES, Gloucester, m. 17 July 1673, Ann Collins, had Charles, b. 12 July 1674; and Francis, 22 May 1677; and d. 11 Sept. 1720, aged, says Babson, a. 69 yrs. EDWARD, Newbury, may, or may not, be the same, wh. hav. prob. come in the fleet with Winthrop req. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, but we see no evid. of his becom. so. Perhaps he went home bef. the time of adm. next yr. and came again. The early sett. was prob. of Watertown, and his w. Reana. However, the man at N. wh. had Edmund, b. 1670; and Benjamin, 15 Apr. 1673; and in that yr. d. as says Coffin, could not be the Watertown sett. bec. his wid. Reana, by contr. of m. 11 Aug. 1640, says Bond, 800, bec. w. of William Andrew. EDMUND, a serv. of Rev. Francis Dane of Andover, wh. d. 14 Sept. 1682, was prob. the s. of the preced. ERASMUS, Salem 1637, then had gr. of ld. was of Marblehead 1648, d. a. 1660, leav. wid. Jane. Felt. She d. that yr. He had prob. s. of the same name, wh. was act. for the town, Mar. 1674. FRANCIS, Hingham, came in the Diligent 1638, with w. and two serv. Thomas Luckling and Richard Baxter, from old Hingham; freem. 10 May 1643. He lost ho. by fire in May, and d. 27 Dec. 1647. FRANCIS, Hingham, freem. 1684, prob. was s. not of the preced. but of Philip; by w. Elizabeth had Francis, b. 26 Jan. 1667; Thomas, 7 Dec. 1669; Samuel, 1 Apr. 1676; and others; certain. Sarah, wh. is ment. in the will of her br. Francis, 28 Dec. 1717, as w. of John Sale; also Jane, wh. was bapt. 5 Nov. 1664, w. of Edward Darby, ment. in the same will; and Philip, prob. eldest, b. 29 Apr. 1657, wh. d. 14 Feb. 1688, of whose est. admin. was giv. to his mo. He d. 29 Nov. 1684, inv. was giv. 5 May and his wid. Elizabeth made admx. FRANCIS, Gloucester, s. of Charles, m. 1703, Elizabeth the spell. of whose surname is uncert. but Babson, 107, says, tho. she had sev. ch. yet none perpet. the name. 

GAWDY, Charlestown 1639, freem. 18 May 1642, had leave to inhab. at Boston 1657; by w. Ann had, perhaps, no ch. at least none to outlive him, for in his will, 26 Dec. 1683, pro. Dec. foll. after releas. tenants of his est. of Winnowfarthing in Eng. and mak. provis. for w. dur. her life, he devis. his prop. to the first ch. of Boston, to wh. many yrs. preced. he had rem. Sometimes this uncom. name of bapt. is erron. giv. Gardy. HUGH, Portsmouth, sent over by Mason, 1630, or 1. JOHN, Providence 1645, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, had div. then of 25 acres. JOHN, Scituate, wh. Deane suppos. to be s. of Thomas of Dedham, and calls a freem. of S. 1668, m. 1675, Lydia, d. of John Turner, had only ch. John, b. 1676; and d. a. the same time of the [[vol. 2, p. 536]] conseq. of wound. from the Ind. and his wid. m. 1680, William Barrell. JOHN, Derby 1694-1706, had preach. in Haddam, as early as 1683; by Mather, in Hecatompolis, erron. mark. as bred at Harv. but he is not in the Catal. of alumni, yet may be the gent. to wh. in 1710 was giv. A. M. being the third honor. degr. ever conf. by the Inst. and by Farmer he was thot. s. of Rev. Thomas of Charlestown, but Dr. Field inf. us, p. 69, that he was "suppos. to be a native of Wales"; and Dr. Stiles had informat. that he came from Eng. was "devot. to books," and d. at Wethersfield, 10 Aug. 1729, hav. there liv. in priv. some yrs. This Stiles deriv. prob. from MS. of Rev. Mr. Mix, min. of Wethersfield at the date of d. of James, and above thirty-five yrs. earlier; and M. call. him "a very good man, with a very ungraceful deliv." That the first min. of Charlestown might have s. John liv. to that date should not be full ground of conject. but it obt. no support from the name in Frothingham, 183, among the householders of 1678, Thomas James, for this is found by severe inspect. to be Thomas Jones. This John, prob. left no descend. or Mix would have ment. the names. JOSEPH, Fairfield 1674, d. bef. Jan. 1688, leav. wid. Mary, and d. Mary, wh. m. Nathan Adams. PHILIP, Hingham, prob. br. of Francis; came 1638, in the Diligent, with w. four ch. and two serv. William Pitts, and Edward Mitchell (we may regret that blessed Daniel Cushing has not as well told us, in his contempo. rec. the names of these ch.) from Hingham, in old Norfolk. He d. soon after, and his wid. m. 14 Feb. 1640, George Russell. RALPH, Weymouth 1650, may be thot. the man wh. m. 17 Apr. of that yr. at Plymouth, Mary Fuller; d. perhaps of Samuel of the Mayflower. SAMUEL, Scituate, thot. by Deane to be f. of William. 

THOMAS, Charlestown, bred at Emanuel Coll. Cambridge, where he had his degr. 1614 and 1618, had preach. in Co. Lincoln, where prob. he was b. came in the William and Francis 1632, arr. 5 June, with w. Elizabeth and prob. s. Thomas; freem. 6 Nov. 1632; had John, bapt. 9 June or 6 Jan. 1633, the first bapt. of that ch. says Budington, 35; but the less trusty town rec. makes the b. 18 Jan. and I kn. not any other ch. at C. His ordin. for the serv. of those wh. had 14 Oct. been dism. from Boston ch. to found the new one was on Friday 2 Nov. 1632, and bef. the end of next yr. a spirit of discord or jealousy was so active, that as early as Mar. 1636 he was dism. After few yrs. he went to New Haven, where in Nov. 1639 a lot was gr. to him; made a freem. of that Col. 1640; he had Nathaniel, bapt. 1 Aug. 1641; thence, on 7 Oct. 1642, sail. to Virginia, in comp. with Knowles and Tomson, but came back in June foll. and bef. 1648 went home, bec. min. of Needham, in Co. Suffolk, and so cont. until the gr. day of eject. in 1662, but pass. the remainder of his days there, and was liv. in 1678, then a. 85 yrs. old, and Hubbard, wh. gives this acco. thinks he might bc, when he wrote [[vol. 2, p. 537]] two or three yrs. later. Hubbard, 191; Prince, Ann. 413; Budington, 196; Calamy, II. 

THOMAS, Providence 1637, one of the found. of the first Bapt. ch. a physician, strong friend of Williams, a good serv. in the cause of humanity, as is seen in the Hist. of Bradford, 364, and Winthrop I. 268. THOMAS, Dedham, may be the man wh. had gr. of ld. at Salem 1638, and the same, wh. m. at Plymouth, 17 Apr. 1650, Mary Fuller, perhaps d. of the beloved physician of the Mayflower. He came from Marlborough, Co. Wilts, Apr. 1635 by the James from Southampton, whose name, Mr. Somerby, in Geneal. Reg. V. 440, says is misprint. Thomas Davyes in 3 Hist. Coll. VIII. 319. This, if correct, is an unusual carelessn. in me, wh. may tax the ingenuity of readers to acco. for. If I understand Mr. S. the error is not on my page, for Drake╒s later copy in Geneal. Reg. XIV. 333, agrees wholly with mine. Yet neither of us have that surname; and I feel sure, that much less than half of the names of passeng. on that voyage by that sh. were report. at the custom-ho. By w. Margaret he had John, b. 16 May 1641; and perhaps soon rem. back to S. for there he was liv. 1659. THOMAS, Lancaster, d. shortly after 13 Mar. 1660, the date of his will, in wh. to his w. wh. if liv. was then in Eng. and cous. nam. Isaac, Lydia, Mary, Hannah, and Christopher Lewis, he gave all his est. and made John Lewis, perhaps their f. his excor. Yet they may have no relat. to our country; and he have been only trans. THOMAS, Easthampton, s. of the first Thomas, b. in Eng. had with his f. liv. at New Haven, sev. yrs. there was freem. early in 1645, had Elisha, Nathaniel, Abel, and Abigail, all bapt. 19 Mar. 1648; and Ruth, 21 Mar. 1650; and rem. to L. I. in 1650, bec. their min. d. 1696. See Wood's Hist. Sk. of L. I. THOMAS, Salem, 1659, wh. d. a. 1666, had James, Joseph, and Sarah, but they all liv. in Carolina, when he d. WILLIAM, wh. req. 10 Oct. 1630 to be adm. freem. but never took the o. had prob. come in the fleet with Winthrop and, perhaps, went home bef. May foll. as did, I suppose, Edmund, possib. his br. Felt thinks him the same, wh. had gr. of ld. at Salem 1637. But this man it seems more likely came in the Lion, arr. 16 Sept. 1632. Either of these Williams may have been the planter at Kittery 1651. 

WILLIAM, Portsmouth, R. I. on the list of freem. 1655, may have been s. of Thomas of Providence; but it is more prob. he had been of Salem ch. and was excom. with thirteen others, as by Hugh Peter triumphant. in his let. to ch. of Dorchester 1 July 1639, relat. in full. Hutch. I. 421. Felt, in his list of memb. of the Ch. thot. it his duty to omit the whole. WILLIAM, Scituate 1673, had w. Mehitable, but no ch. Deane thot. him of a diff. fam. from John, and that his f. was Samuel. Twelve of this name, says Farmer, had, in 1828, been gr. at the coll. of N. E. and N. J.

JAMESON, ANDREW, Boston 1657, one of the first mem. of the Scot's Charit. Soc. that yr. ROBERT, Watertown 1642. WILLIAM, Charlestown, was, I suppose, a soldier of Turner's comp. 1676, whose name is, I think, call. Jennison in Frothingham's list of householders 1678, p. 183, bec. in Budington is found as ch. mem. 16 Oct. 1681, Goodman William Jimmison, and such name is not seen in F. had w. Sarah, m. 18 Oct. 1677, whose gr.stone says she d. 24 Mar. 1691, aged 38, by wh. he had William, b. 26 May 1679; Margaret, 2 June 1680; John, bapt. 7 [[vol. 2, p. 538]] Nov. 1686; William, 17 Nov. 1689; and Mary 15 Mar. 1691; and sec. w. Sarah, d. 7 Sept. 1710, aged 61; and third w. Mary, d. 15 Mar. 1718, aged 67; he hav. d. 25 Feb. 1714, aged 61. At Dover, in 1658, an inhab. was rec. call. Patriarch Jemeson, says Mr. Quint, but perhaps the clk. should have writ. Patrick. WILLIAM, Casco, a. 1685.
