JOSSELYN, JOCELYN, JOSTLIN, or JOSLIN, ABRAHAM, Scarborough, of the gr. jury 1658, was, perhaps, br. of Henry, Esquire, and John, the traveller; but whether he went home, or d. here, is unkn. ABRAHAM, Hingham, prob. eldest of Thomas of the same, b. in Eng. perhaps was left by his f. at sch. and direct. to foll. in few yrs.; by w. Beatrice, had there bapt.

*HENRY, Scarborough, s. of Sir Thomas of Co. Kent, came, perhaps as early as 1631, certain. was here in 1634, but this was in employm. of Mason, patentee of N. H. after whose d. he engag. under Sir F. Gorges, and most faithful was his serv. from 1636, usual. oppos. the claims of Mass. hold. courts in 1647 and 8, under his commiss. from Eng. but at last acquiesc. in her suprem. bec. freem. 1658, when most of his neighb. also took the o. He m. Margaret, wid. of capt. Thomas Cammock, soon after his d. in 1643, had Henry; was for a long time the sec. person in auth. in Maine, and, not a short season, the first; in 1665 of course he enjoy. the favor of the royal commisnrs. but again bec. loyal to the usurp. governm. of Mass. In Oct. 1676 he was subdu. by the Ind. and prob. went to the Westward, but no more is kn. See Williamson. Sullivan, 369, suppos. that he went to Plymouth and Willis, 128, foll. that mistake. [[vol. 2, p. 571]] The indefat. histor. of Portland discov. that he was at Pemaquid in 1682, and d. early next yr. See his fine artic. in Geneal. Reg. XI. 31.

In Barry's copious Hist. of H. much will be seen of descend. to the present generat. HENRY, Gloucester; perhaps s. of the first Henry, m. 4 June 1678, Bridget Day, prob. d. of Anthony, had Henry, b. 28 June 1679; and Susanna, 25 Jan. 1682, d. in three days.

JOHN, Scarborough, the well kn. auth. br. of the first Henry, came in the Nicholas charter. by Edward Tyng arr. from London at Boston 2 July 1638; made a short excurs. to Scarborough to see his br. went home, in the Fellowship from Boston 15 Oct. and reach. Bideford, as he tells us, 24 Nov. 1639. His next visit brot. him to Boston, 28 July 1663, whence, after spend. a few wks. he went to his br. at S. and remain. eight yrs. he went home and publish in 1672, his book "New Eng. Rarities," more curious than trustworthy. JOSEPH, Bridgewater, s. of the sec. Abraham, was at Lancaster, when, in Feb. 1676, the Ind. destroy. his br. Abraham's fam. and was carr. away into captiv. but happily recov. by some friend. Ind. wh. took him, 30 May foll. to Norwich, as is told in Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. 430. He m. 17 Mar. 1688, Hannah, d. of John Farrow, had Mary, b. 24 May 1695, and he m. 1702, Sarah Ford, for sec. w. and d. Sept. 1726. By his first w. he had Joseph, Mary, Hannah, and Beatrice, nam. in his will, as are also, of the sec. w. wh. d. 1734, the ch. Sarah, b. 1703; Ebenezer, 1709; and Abraham, 1716.

Nathaniel, ano. Elizabeth and Martha, all liv. 3 Mar. 1694, the date of his will. After destruct. of L. he rem. to Marlborough, there d. 8 Apr. 1694. 

NATHANIEL, Marlborough, s. of the preced. freem. 1690, m. 8 Apr. 1682, Esther Morse, had Esther; b. 20 May 1683; Mary, 14 Apr. 1685; Patience, 27 Feb. 1687; Martha, 1695; and perhaps other childr. His w. d. 27 Aug. 1725, and he d. 5 Mar. 1727. PETER, Lancaster, br. of the preced. had w. and three ch. all k. by the Ind. 18 July 1692, when they took away ano. ch. beside Elizabeth Howe, the [[vol. 2, p. 572]] sis. of his w. and other prison. but k. the ch. in the woods. He had sec. w. Hannah, and outliv. a fourth w. was a capt. and d. at gr. age in Leominster, at the ho. of his s. John, 8 Apr. 1759. The Hon. David Wilder, the modest histor. of Leominster, was a descend. RICHARD, Saybrook, a freem. of Conn. 1669, spelt Joseland. THOMAS, Hingham, a husbandman, aged 43, with w. Rebecca, 43; and ch. Rebecca, 18; Dorothy, 11; Nathaniel, 8; Elizabeth 6; and Mary, 1; beside Elizabeth Ward, a serv. 38; came from London, 1635, in the Increase; was among grantees of Sudbury 1640, not resid. but aft. some yrs. rem. to Lancaster, where he sign. the civ. compact, 12 Nov. 1654, hav. perhaps for short time liv. at Boston, where Elizabeth m. 21 June 1652, Edward Yeomans, and next, 9 May 1662, Edward Kilby; but at Lancaster he d. 3 Jan. 1661. His will of 9 May preced. pro. 2 Apr. foll. made extrix. w. Rebecca, wh. m. 16 May 1661, William Kerley, and names s. Abraham, and Nathaniel, gr.s. Nathaniel, and ds. Rebecca Nichols, w. of Thomas; Mary, w. of Roger Sumner; and Elizabeth Yeomans. Copious notes by the dilig. and accur. librar. of the Univ. are pub. in Geneal. Reg. II. 306, of this progenit. but he fell into slight mistake in say. neither the will nor inv. is on rec. Both are, tho. not where he expect. to find them. All the descend. of this patriarch, it is believ. until the end of last century, spelt the name Joslin, tho. sometimes Joslyn.

Two or more brs. says a tradit. as valua. as most of such materials of hist. came to Yarmouth or other part of Cape Cod, and one is call.
