Hannah, of wh. the elder, 23 Nov. 1659, the younger was b. 12 June 1661. JAMES, Andover, prob. s. of Thomas of the same, m. 26 Apr. 1692, Elizabeth Peters. JEREMIAH, New Haven 1662, had Thomas, b. 25 Apr. 1664; ano. ch. 1666; and Samuel, 8 Mar. 1671; perhaps rem. to Derby, had sev. more ch. and d. 1704. *|| JOHN, Roxbury, came, prob. in the fleet with Winthrop bring. w. Margery, wh. d. or was bur. 9 June 1655, and his ch. Isaac and Humphrey, prob. others, as his will speaks of five ch. and my conject. is, that other three were ds. and all b. in Eng.; desir. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, and was made freem. 18 May foll. a man of est. and distinct. rep. at the first Gen. Court, 1634, and many yrs. foll. ar. co. 1638, surveyor-gen. of arms, and ammunit. He m. Grace, wid. of Barnabas Fawer, and d. 30 Sept. 1659. JOHN, Newport 1638, may have been of Wickford 1674. JOHN, Sandwich 1643. JOHN, New Haven 1643, counts five in fam. prob. the propr. with others of the name, 1685; may be he, wh. came in the James from London, 1630, aged 26; with w. Susan, 24; Elizabeth 2; and Thomas, 18 mos. wh. may be thot. a blunder by the custom ho. clk. for 8 mos. At New Haven had Daniel, b. 1648, bapt. 6 Mar. 1653; Samuel, 25 Feb. bapt. 1 Mar. 1654; Hannah, 4, bapt. 8 Feb. 1657; Sarah, 26, bapt. 28 Aug. 1664; and Abigail, wh. m. 1690, Joseph Foote of Branford. Perhaps he was br. of Edmund, a fellow-passeng. but it must be left for larger inq. to reach certainty. Ano. JOHN came from London 1635, in the Elizabeth, aged 23, of wh. I can guess nothing, but kn. that one John, for serv. in the Pequot war, 1637, had gr. in Conn. of fifty acres in 1671. He may be the freem. of Guilford, 1669, or of New Haven. The Guilford John m.

He prob. had serv. in Philip's war for in 1677 he was made capt. of the [[vol. 2, p. 555]] town by the Gen. Ct. 

JOHN, Lancaster 1654, may be he of Sudbury, wh. m. 19 Nov. 1657, Deborah, d. of William Ward, wh. d. 9 Aug. 1697, aged 60; and liv. at Marlborough, where he had John, b. 1672, d. soon; Daniel, 1675; Elizabeth 1677; and Deborah, 1678; was freem. 1690, and d. 4 May 1713.

Ruth, wh. in 1681 is nam. in the will of gr.f. Maverick, as liv. with him; rem. bef. 1662, to Haverhill, was the first blacksmith there, freem. 1666, rep. 1690; had m. sec. w. 8 Sept. 1680, Catharine, wid. of John Maverick, br. of his former w.

JOHN, Rehoboth, had Elizabeth b. 19 May 1673; Joseph, 3 Oct. 1677; Rebecca, 17 Nov. 1679; Rachel, 23 Dec. 1681, d. in four mos.; Jonathan, 20 Feb. 1683. JOHN, Norwich 1677, has large posterity. 

JOHN, Charlestown, s. of John of the same, m. on the same day with his f. 8 Sept. 1680, Mary, d. prob. of Thomas Mousall. JOHN, Oxford, one of the Huguenots, wh. prob. came, 1686, from Rochelle in France, after the persecut. begun the yr. bef. and wrote his name Jean Jeanson, had w. Susan, was with three of his ch. k. by the Ind. 25 Aug. 1696. His wid. m. 18 Apr. 1701, her cous. Daniel Johonnot, wh. rescu. her from that fate, as the fam. tradit. credibly reports. JOHN, Andover, prob. s. of Thomas of the same, m. 13 Sept. 1689, Eleanor Ballard, hav. lost former w. Susanna, on 12 Sept. 1683; and he d. 1741, aged 74. JOHN, Salem 1691, a lighterman. Felt. He m. 23 Feb. 1678, Esther Beers, perhaps d. of Philip, had John, b. 3 Aug. 1679. JOHN, New Haven, s. of Robert, m. 2 Mar. 1685, Mabel Grannis, d. of Edward, had John, b. 3 Mar. 1687; Thomas, 12 June 1690; Ann, Feb. 1691; Sarah, 9 Apr. 1694; Daniel, 22 Apr. 1696; Joseph, 2 Dec. 1698; Benjamin, 9 Mar. 1701; Robert, 2 June 1703; James, 3 Sept. 1705; Mehitable, 29 Feb. 1708; and Hannah, 23 May 1710. JONATHAN, Marlborough, perhaps s. of William of Charlestown, had w. Mary, and ch. Mary, b. 1664; William, 1665; Jonathan, 1667; was freem. 1685, and d. 21 Apr. 1712. Jonathan, jr. was freem. 1690. JOSEPH, Charlestown, s. of the first William, m. 19 Apr. 1664, Mary, perhaps d. of Manus Sally, but had sec. w. Hannah bef. 1681, 

JOSEPH, Lancaster, d. 17 Apr. 1668, leav. wid. Susanna. MARMADUKE, Cambridge 1661, printer, sent over by the Soc. for Prop. the Gospel to put Eliot's Ind. Bible to press, ought to have more told of him, than that he was sick of his resid. here, and went home in 1664, a little bef. finish. the work. No doubt the governm. of the coll. were well pleas. to be rid of him at first, yet in 1674 he was again chos. printer; whether he had come back from his native ld. and here solicit. patronage is not certain. kn. but may reasonab. be believ. We can boldly presume, that it was not on acco. of re-impress. of the Ind. Bible, for that work in the sec. Ed. did not appear bef. 1685; and he [[vol. 2, p. 556]]

had, I think, d. long time bef. as his inv. is of date 24 Apr. 1676. *MATTHEW, Woburn, s. of Capt. Edward, b. in Eng. m. 12 Nov. 1656, Hannah, d. of Peter Palfrey, wh. d. 1 Aug. 1662, and 23 Oct. foll. m. Rebecca, d. of Elder John Wiswall of Boston, had Rebecca, b. 1 Mar. 1665, wh. m. 1692, Samuel Wyman; Matthew, 18 Mar. 1667; Hannah, 23 Apr. 1669; Samuel, 28 Apr. 1672; Ruth, 1 Jan. 1675; Sarah, 14 Apr. 1677; Henry, 7 Apr. 1683; and was rep. 1686, 9-92, and d. 19 July 1696, aged 62. MOSES, Stratford, is thot. to be that s. of Peter, b. by his mo. when imprison. 1650 or 1, m. a. 1676, Mary, d. of Robert Rose, had Rebecca, bapt. 8 Apr. 1677, d. young,; Zeruiah, b. 30 Apr. 1682; Rebecca, again, bapt. July 1683, or 4; John, b. 18 Apr. 1686; Sarah, 5 Aug. 1688; Mary, 20 Apr. 1690; Elizabeth 18 Oct. 1691; Moses, 13 May 1694; and Solomon, 5 Jan. 1696. He rem. to Woodbury, but Cothren mistakes him for his own s. NATHANIEL, Roxbury, s. of capt. Isaac, m. 29 Apr. 1667, Mary Smith, had John, b. 29 Apr. 1668; Nathaniel, 19 Mar.1670; Smith, 22 Jan. 1672; Mary, 14 Feb. 1674; and Hannah, 13 Mar. 1683. Perhaps he rem. to Marlborough, was freem. 1690. NATHANIEL, Medfield, m. 14 Nov. 1671, Mary d. of John Plimpton; d. in Marlborough, prob. 24 July 1718, in 80th yr. NATHANIEL, Charlestown, householder 1678, may have been s. of William, for his name in the list stands next to that of the wid. He had m. 24 Nov. 1668, Joanna Long, and d. 1678. His wid. m. 10 Dec. 1679, the sec. Christopher Goodwin. PETER, an early advent. with Bryan Binks, in the settlem. of Sagadahock. See Col. Rec. I. 98. He and his associates prob. went to Virg. at least Winthrop I. 58, gives them no permanence. PETER, Boston, call. a Dutchman, when in 1638, Richard Rawlings was allow. to purch. his ho. and he rem. was of Fairfield, a. 1649. His w. Elizabeth had a ch. b. in pris. where perhaps she d. We find not the occasion of the imprison. of the w. wh. was very long, but conject. is, that she was insane, that the ch. was posthum. nam. Moses, and had elder brs. John, and Ebenezer. John d. in 1659, his minor brs. were heirs. See Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 209, 222, 6, and 32. The explanat. is altogether traditional, as also the story, very natural, that the mo. wh. admin. est. of John, m. John Fossecar of Fairfield. PETER, Andover; perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, m. 23 Nov. 1693, Mehitable Farnham. RETURN, Hampton, sw. alleg. 25 Apr. 1678, but had at Andover, m. 7 Sept. 1673, Mary Johnson. RICHARD, Charlestown, or Watertown, came in the employm. of Sir Richard Saltonstall, 1630, and rem. to Salem, had gr. of ld. 1637, but prob. liv. at Lynn that yr. freem. 17 May, had ch. Daniel, Samuel, Elizabeth and Abigail, and d. 26 Aug. 1666. His will of 20 Aug. nam. these four ch. Elizabeth m. 4 Nov. 1664, the sec. Thomas Tolman. RICHARD, Swanzey, by w. Elizabeth had Richard, b. 21 Jan. 1684. RICHARD, New Haven, had no fam. prob. but is call. "old Richard Johnson" in rec. of his d. 1679. ROBERT, New Haven 1646, d. 1661, and in his will names his ch. Thomas, John, and William. His wid. Adeline m. 7 Jan. 1663, Robert Hill; and next, 22 May 1666, John Scranton. Porter suppos. him to be s. of an earlier Robert, wh. was d. in 1641. [[vol. 2, p. 557]] ROBERT, the gr. of H. C. 1645, is altogether unkn. to us, nor has the yr. of his d. been heard of. William Winthrop, a dilig. antiquary, wh. bestow. most of his life on the Coll. Catal. thot. he might be s. of capt. Edward, and allud. to in his Hist. with the fantastic title; but by Farmer, a more judicious inquir. this is held highly improb. ROBERT, Marblehead 1674. 

SAMUEL, Boston, a mariner, by w. Mary had Peter, b. 2 July 1653; and d. 19 Mar. foll. ano. SAMUEL, Lynn, perhaps br. of Daniel, bef. ment. and he or ano. of Boston, may be the freem. call. cornet of L. in the list of 1691, m. 22 Jan. 1664, Mary Collins, had Mary, b. 19 Jan. 1665, d. in 3 mos.; Samuel, 18 Nov. 1666, d. young; Mary, again, 25 May 1669; Hannah, 15 May 1671; Elizabeth 16 Dec. 1672; Richard, 8 Nov. 1674; Ruth, 6 Mar. 1678; and Samuel, 18 Mar. 1679. He may hav. tak. o. of fidel. at Dartmouth 1684. SAMUEL, York 1680, was, perhaps, s. of Edward of the same, and took o. of alleg. soon after him. SAMUEL, New Haven, a propr. in 1685 was prob. a gr.s. of Robert. SAMUEL, one of the soldiers in Gallop's comp. 1690, in the sad expedit. of Sir William Phips, of wh. no more is kn. SAMUEL, Guilford, s. of deac. William of the same, m. 7 Nov. 1694, Mary, d. of David Sage of Middletown, had William, b. 4 Sept. 1695, d. soon; Samuel, 14 Oct. 1696, Y. C. 1714, the disting. scholar, wh. bec. Presid. of King's Coll. N. Y.; Mary, 8 Mar. 1699; David, 1700; Elizabeth 19 Oct. 1703, d. at 9 yrs.; Nathaniel, 17 Apr. 1705; Abigail, 9 Apr. 1707; William, again, 19 Apr. 1709; Mercy, 19 Dec. 1710, d. young,; Elizabeth 20 Feb. 1713, d. young; and Timothy, Oct. 1715, d. at 16 yrs. His w. d. 8 May 1727; but when he d. is unkn. 

SOLOMON, Sudbury 1638, freem. 1651, by w. Hannah had Joseph, or Joshua, and Nathaniel, tw. b. 3 Feb. 1640; Mary, 23 Jan. 1644; and by w. Elinor had Caleb, 1 Feb. 1646, casually k. at 8 yrs.; Samuel, 5 Mar. 1654; Hannah, 27 Apr. 1656; and Caleb, again, 31 Oct. 1658; and d. 28 July 1690. But Bond gives to Elinor the first four ch. and Barry says, there was Solomon jr. at S. and if my suspic. that this is a mistake, be unfound. some part of the preced. may belong to him. He m. sec. w. 1 Feb. 1687, Hannah Craft. His d. Hannah m. Gershom Eames, and next, 4 or 6 Sept. 1679, William Ward of Marlborough. STEPHEN, Andover, m. 5 Nov. 1661, Elizabeth d. perhaps, or sis. of Rev. Francis Dane, had Elizabeth wh. d. 14 Feb. 1668; Stephen; Francis, b. 1666; Ann, wh. d. 26 June 1669; Joseph; Mary, wh. d. 22 Mar. 1673; and Benjamin; but the order of b. is not kn. He d. 30 Nov. 1690. THOMAS, Hartford, a cobbler, as the rec. of his admin. 1640, calls him. 

THOMAS, Hingham 1635, came, perhaps, in the Hopewell, capt. Babb, in the autumn of that yr. from London, aged 25 (tho. the name in the custom ho. rec. may be tak. for Ireson, and inspect. leaves it uncert.) is prob. the man, was [[vol. 2, p. 558]]

in peril on a raft, 1646, as told by Winthrop II. 305, and was drown. says Boston rec. in the harbor, 29 May 1656. His wid. Margaret, late in Dec. 1659. gave (as she says was the intent of her h.) all her prop. neither of them hav. ch. to Mary, d. of John Tucker of said H. wh. m. Joseph Church. THOMAS, Dover 1648-57, had only ch. a d. that d. prob. soon after her f. wh. d. a. 1661. THOMAS, New Haven, perhaps s. of Robert, had Joseph, b. 30 Nov. 1651; John, 27 Apr. 1654, both bapt. 8 Feb. 1657; Abigail, b. 19 Jan. 1658, d. soon; Sarah, 2 Nov. 1659; and Abigail, again, 14 June 1662. He m. sec. w. Sept. 1663, Frances Hitchcock, had Thomas, 11 July foll. and rem. to Newark, N. J.; was a propr. 1685. THOMAS, of the class in H. C. 1661, is, like Robert, wholly unkn. as also date of his d. In Mather's Catal. of 1698, both are starred. THOMAS, New London 1682. THOMAS, Andover, m. 5 July 1657, Mary, d. of Nicholas Holt, wh. d. 15 Nov. 1700, had Thomas, John, James, Peter, and Josiah, liv. at his d. 1719, in 88th yr. He was freem. 1691 and perhaps had other ch. for I find Penelope J. k. by the Ind. at Andover, 22 Feb. 1698. TIMOTHY, Andover, m. 15 Dec. 1674, Rebecca, d. of John Aslett, and d. 15 Mar. 1688. WALTER, Middletown 1684, but I learn nothing more of him. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1634, perhaps br.of capt. Edward, had w. Elizabeth says the ch. rec. of their adm. in Feb. 1635, and Ruhamah, a d. bapt. 21 Feb. 1635, wh. m. 25 Apr. 1654, John Knight; Joseph, 12 Feb. 1637; Elizabeth 17 Mar. 1639, wh. m. 5 Jan. 1659, Edward Wyer; and Jonathan, 14 Aug. 1641; and prob. others, certain Isaac; and d. 9 Dec. 1677. Ano. WILLIAM of Charlestown, by w. Judith had James, b. 21 Aug. 1648. WILLIAM, Boston, mariner, m. Temperance, d. of Robert Ratchell, d. bef. Apr. 1677. *WILLIAM, Guilford, m. 2 July 1651, Elizabeth Bushnell, perhaps d. of Francis, an import. man, rep. 1665, and often for above twenty yrs. after, was a deac. had Elizabeth b. 1652; Hannah, 21 Mar. 1654, wh. may be guess. to be call. Ann in the will or other rec.; Mary, 21 Feb. 1657; Sarah, 22 Nov. 1658, d. soon; Martha, 27 Feb. 1660, d. in few wks.; Abigail, 24 Oct. 1661, d. young; Mercy, 12 Jan. 1665; Sarah, again, 13 Aug. 1667, d. at 2 yrs.; Samuel, 5 June 1670; and Nathaniel, 17 Apr. 1672. The mo. d. ten days after, and the last ch. d. in few wks. and the f. d. 1 Oct. 1702. Elizabeth m. 1674, Samuel Hall; Mary m. 23 Dec. 1676; and Ann m. 1680, John Fowler the sec. In his will, of 18 June 1695, he names Benjamin, and Deborah, ch. of his d. Mary, wid. of Thomas Stone, and gr.d. Mercy Scranton, tho. whose ch. she was, is not kn. beside ch. Samuel, and two ds. Elizabeth Hall, and Ann Fowler. WILLIAM, Stonington 1670, d. 1696, leav. ch. α*WILLIAM, Woburn, s. of capt. Edward, b. in Eng. freem. 1655, m. 16 May 1655, Esther, d. of Elder Thomas Wiswall of Dorchester, had William, b. 26 Feb. 1656; Edward, 19 Mar. 1658; Ebenezer, 29 Mar. 1659; Esther, 13 Apr. 1662; Joseph, 14 June 1664; Benjamin, 15 Oct. 1666; Josiah, 15 Jan. 1669; Susanna, 29 June 1671; and Abigail, 4 Oct. 1674. Perhaps he took sec. w. 18 Feb. 1692, Mary Cook. He [[vol. 2, p. 559]] was rep. 1674, 6-83, a milit. offic. of every rank, exc. the highest, an Assist. 1684 till the usurp. by the King of our chart. rights, and, on overthrow of Andros, 1689, one of the Com'tee of safety, a generous and sturdy support. of old chart. so no favorite (Hutch. I. 414, well presumes) with Mather, wh. dictat. the appointm. at the Court of William and Mary; and d. 22 May 1704 is wid. d. 27 Dec. 1707, tho. the clumsy inscript. on her gr.stone says she d. 17 Dec. 1706, aged 48, when she had been m. upwards of fifty-one and a half yrs. bef. this false date; and d. Esther m. 17 Dec. 1685, Seth Wyman, and d. 31 Mar. 1742. WILLIAM, Wallingford 1670, perhaps s. of Robert, prob. rem. to New Haven, there had w. Sarah, and was propr. 1685. Ano. 

WILLIAM, New Haven, perhaps s. of the first John, had fourteen ch. but the mo. is unkn.; William; Abraham, b. 10 Mar. 1669; Abigail, 6 Dec. 1670; Isaac, 27 Oct. 1672; Jacob, 25 Sept. 1674; John, and Sarah, tw. 6 Nov. 1676; Samuel, 3 Sept. 1678; Mary, 1 Apr. 1680; Lydia, 7 Jan. 1682; Elizabeth 11 Jan. 1684, d. next mo.; Hope, and Elizabeth tw. 10 May 1685, of wh. Hope liv. but few days; and Ebenezer, 5 Apr. 1688; and the f. d. 1716. WILLIAM, Andover, m. 23 May 1678, Sarah Lovejoy, had Susanna, wh. d. 7 Feb. 1683; and prob. other ch. was freem. 1691. WILLIAM, Charlestown, perhaps s. of William of the same, by w. Sarah Burrage, d. of John, m. 5 Apr. 1682, had Joanna, b. 22, bapt. 26 Oct. 1684; John, 11 Sept. 1685; WILLIAM, Woburn, prob. s. of William of the same, had w. Esther Taylor, m. 31 Dec. 1682, wh. d. 17 Dec. 1706, in 49th yr.; by her had William, b. 19 Sept. 1683, bapt. at Charlestown 6 Apr. foll. Esther, bapt. at O. S. ch. in Boston, 6 June 1686; and William, again, b. 28 Mar. or 17 July, bapt. 22 July 1688; Thomas, bapt. 28 Mar. 1690; Matthew, 31 Jan. 1692; Bethia, 1 Apr. 1694; and Richard, 17 Nov. 1695. WINGLE, or WINDLE, New Haven, m. Dec. 1664, Sarah, d. of John Hall, had William, b. 15 Sept. 1665; and John, 20 July 1667; was freem. 1669. ZECHARIAH, Charlestown 1672, s. of William, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth bapt. 9 Apr. 1673; Jefts, 28 Nov. 1675; Elizabeth again, 12 Mar. 1676; Sarah, 18 Nov. 1677; and Zechariah, 5 Sept. 1680; William, 11 Feb. 1683; Sarah, again, 14 Dec. 1684; and Mary, 14 Oct. 1688; and he was freem. 1676. Of this name the occurrence is so freq. in all parts of N. E. that out of inq. confin. exclus. to it, a large vol. would grow. Perhaps even some stocks may have escap. my research. The first person in N. E. guilty of the impossib. crime of witchcraft, and exec. at Hartford, was a Johnson of Windsor; and one of the most disting. was Rev. Samuel, b. at Guilford, 14 Oct. 1696, the first Presid. of King's Coll. at New York, wh. d. 6 Jan. 1772. Sometimes, but rarely, this name appears Johnstone.
