Moses, Y. C. 1752, was f. of the Hon. James, LL. D. the disting. jurist, late Chancellor of N. Y. JOSEPH, Dedham, br. of John, as I guess from the equal bequests in the will of Elizabeth Hardier. See Geneal. Reg. XIII. 12. 

JOSEPH, Charlestown, s. of John, d. 30 May 1753, in 79th yr. as the gr.stone asserts, when he was prob. under 78. JOSHUA, Dedham 1643, prob. br. of first John, adm. of the ch.

Mary had Lydia, b. 17, bapt. 28 Feb. 1647; went, with w. again to Eng. that yr. his reasons not well satisfy. his friends in the ch. but came, again, in Oct. 1648, prob. dishearten. by the convuls. of his nat. ld.; that yr. had Sarah, b. 27 Mar. bapt. 7 Apr. 1650; and Mary, bapt. 14 Dec. 1651.

Sarah, and other ds. of wh. one, Rebecca, had m. in Eng. Samuel Scallard, and aft. his d. she came, and, perhaps, brot. d. Mary, wh. m. 4 Dec. 1666, John Rolfe; and the mo. m.

RICHARD, Newbury 1635, came the yr. bef. in the Mary and John, br. of James, had w. Jane, wh. d. 26 June 1674, and he m. 6 Jan. 1675, Joanna, wid. of Nicholas Davison of Charlestown, and d. 25 Nov. 1689, without ch. but gave his est. to his neph. John. SAMUEL, Gloucester, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, b. prob. in Eng. by w.

Esther Phelps, had Martha, 1703; Daniel, and Mary, tw. 1704; beside two, Benjamin, and Priscilla, of whose date we hear not. He d. 1740, in his will of 1737 names the five surv. s. and three ds. 

STEPHEN, Newbury, br. of the first Richard, came, says Coffin, 1635; but if so, he went home, and came again 1638, in the Confidence from Southampton, with w. Margery, and four or five serv. In his case is observa. how readily the officers of the custom-ho. acquiesc. in false statem. to avoid the arbitra. orders of the Lords of Traae and Planta. for his age is mark. 17, that of his w. 16, and George March, serv. 16; beside Hugh March, 20; Anthony Sadler, 9; Nicholas Wallington, a poor boy, without any yrs.; and Rebecca Kent, 16, call. serv. perhaps to increase the delus. He was older, prob. for he was sw. a freem. 22 May 1639; had Elizabeth b. 1 Mar. 1642, d. at 11 yrs.; Hannah, 20 Mar. 1644; Stephen, 6 Mar. 1648; Rebecca, 3 Aug. 1650; David, 26 May 1657; and Mary. He had three ws. Ann, the sec. d. 3 May 1660; and he m. 9 May 1662, Eleanor, wid. of William Scadlock of Saco; and rem. to Haverhill, thence to Woodbridge, N. J.

WILLIAM, Boston 1662, m. Mary, wid. of John Mears; of ar. co. 1667, its ensign 1673, d. 9 July 1691. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and nine at other N. E. coll.

KERLEY, CARSLEY, or CARLSLY, EDMUND, of Ashmore, Co. Dorset, near Shaftsbury, husbandman, emb. in the Confidence, 24 Apr. 1638 aged 22, at Southampton; but we kn. no more of him. HENRY, Lancaster, s. of William, b. a. 1632, brot. prob. by his f. to Hingham, m. 2 Nov. 1654, Elizabeth d. of John White, had Henry, b. 1658; William, 1659; Joseph, 1669; and prob. other ch. freem. 1668; but in 1676, aft. his w. (a sis. of famous Mary Rowlandson, the w. of the min.) with the two last nam. ch. were k. by the Ind. 10 Feb. at the assault (in wh. [[vol. 3, p. 14]] Mrs. R. as she has relat. was tak.) he m. 18 Apr. 1676, Elizabeth how at Charlestown, went to Marlborough, and there spent the rest of his days, was a capt. and his depon. against Andros, 27 Dec. 1689, with Thomas How, is giv. in Revo. in N. E. Justif. 35. See Willard's Hist. of Lancaster, 27, 8, and 38. 

WILLIAM, Hingham 1637, of Sudbury a. 1641, rem. to Lancaster, freem. 1647; in his old age m. sec. w. 16 May 1664, Rebecca, wid. of Thomas Josselyn, and d. 14 July 1670, leav. William, and Henry, bef. ment. His will of 26 July 1669 adds nothing to our acquaint. with his fam. WILLIAM, Sudbury, eldest s. prob. of the preced. by wh. he was, perhaps, left in Eng. came in the Confidence from Southampton 1638, call. of Ashmore, with Edmund, bef. ment. wh. may have been uncle or br. rem. to Marlborough, freem. 1666; by w. Jane had Mary, b. at S. 4 May 1667; Sarah, 23 Jan. 1669; and Hannah, 8 Jan. 1671; was an ens. d. at Marlborough, 4 Jan. 1684. I suppose the name is mispr. Kerby in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 241.


KESKEYS, HENRY, Boston, by w. Ruth had Henry, b. 3 May 1656.

KETCHAM, EDWARD, Ipswich 1635, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, may reasona. be thot. progenit. of all of the name, in our country and therefore I regret the more that we are ign. of the circumstances of his migrat. and subseq. resid. By conject. it seems to me, that EDWARD of Stratford, wh. d. bef. 1678, was his s. whose d. Rebecca m. 14 Feb. 1678, Thomas Taylor of Norwalk. An Edward E. m. Mary, d. of Richard Harcutt, but prob. he was of L. I. yet may have been the Stratford man, wh. in his will of June 1655 names three ds. Mary, Hannah, and Esther. HENRY, Ipswich 1638, perhaps s. of the preced. JOHN, Ipswich 1648, prob. s. of Edward, rem. to that pt. of L. I. call. Setauket, now Brookhaven, constable, stood up for the jurisdict. of Conn. was honor. 1662, with a commiss. to make his neighb. swear, and rep. 1664. In 1668 he rem. to Newtown, there was a man of influence to his d. 1697. Riker, 89. JOSEPH, Norwalk 1672, possib. s. of the preced. or gr.s. of Edward, m. 3 Apr. 1679, Mercy, d. of deac. Henry Lindall of New Haven, had Nathaniel, b. 23 Jan. 1680; and Sarah, 19 Feb. 1672; was in town serv. 1701. SAMUEL, Newtown, L. I. 1655, prob. br. of John, was of Setauket, freem. of Conn. 1664, and with Edward, wh. may, also, have been br. at Huntington, 1672.

KETTLE, JAMES, Salem, s. of the first John, by w. Elizabeth had John, and Nathaniel, tw. b. 9 Dec. 1689, of wh. John, prob. d. soon; James, 27 Dec. 1691; Elizabeth 19 Jan. 1694; and John, again, 3 July 1696; JOHN, Gloucester, was in 1641, then a minor, charg. for breach of Sabbath & c.; by w. Elizabeth d. of the first William Allen of Salem, had John, b. 1654; William, 1656; Elizabeth b. 15 Feb. 1658; Mary, 5 Mar. 1660; Samuel, 2 Apr. 1662; and James, 20 Mar. 1665. He rem. and d. at Salem 12 Oct. 1685. Prob. from him is deriv. the name Kettle Cove at the adjoin. town of Manchester. 

JOHN, Charlestown, eldest s. of Richard of the same, was, perhaps, of Portsmouth 1663. He m. first, Sarah, d. of Edmund Goodenow, had John (wh. m. 11 Sept. 1688, Abigail, d. of Richard Austin, and d. at C. 17 Mar. 1691, [[vol. 3, p. 15]] aged 30); Sarah, b. in Sudbury, 8 Mar. 1663; and Joseph. He had a sec. w. Mr. Wyman says, Elizabeth d. of Samuel Ward the sec. wh. was carr. away from Lancaster in 1676, says Frothingham, 82; and by her had only Jonathan, b. at L. 24 Nov. 1670.

His other ch. Ann, b. 1679; Jonathan. 1681; and Abigail, 1684, were bapt. 29 Mar. 1685, when he join. to the ch.; and he had aft. James, 1686; and David, 1689, d. the same yr. JOSEPH, Charlestown, elder br. of the preced. freem. 1670, m. 5 July 1665, Hannah, d. of William Frothingham, had Hannah, wh. d. 26 June 1666; Hannah, again, d. 5 Sept. 1669; Richard, bapt. 1 May 1670; Esther, 29 Jan. 1671, d. 25 May 1678; Hannah, 27 Oct. 1672, d. young; Joseph, 31 Jan. 1675; Elizabeth 18 Mar. 1677, Esther, again, 13 Feb. 1679; William, 6 Feb. 1681; Mary, 25 Mar. 1683; Benjamin, 7 Sept. 1684; Rebecca, 7 Jan. 1687; and Hannah, again, 7 July 1689. His s. Richard d. 7 Dec. 1690; and his w. d. 15 Sept. 1693; he was chos. deac. 1695; m. for sec. w. Dorothy, wid. of Thomas Hett, wh. d. 11 Dec. 1710, in her 60th yr. and he d. 5 Apr. 1711. 

NATHANIEL, Charlestown, br. of the preced. by first w. Hannah, m. 13 June 1669, wh. d. 19 Nov. 1670, had only Nathaniel; m. 30 Oct. 1672, Hannah, d. of James Eidder, both unit. with the ch. 22 Mar. 1686, and on 29 of same had bapt.

He had three others, wh. d. bef. bapt. was one of the constables, 1690, and d. 1723. PETER, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 10, from London; but who can tell, whether he grew to manhood, where he liv. wh. he m. or when he d. ?

Perhaps we may doubt the ch. rec. of Budington, 247, of the date, 25 July 1633, giv. the. adm. of "Richard Kettle and Esther his w." as a modern interpolat. in its latter clause, bec. the Boston ch. rec. of 26 Jan. 1634 has this entry, "Esther Ward, our br. Atherton Hough's maid serv." for evid. of her adm. and the dism. on 17 July 1642 reads, "Our sis. Esther Ward, now w. to Richard Kettle of Charlestown hath letter of recommenda. gr. unto her to the ch. at C." Possib. he had two ws. nam. Esther, hut it is less prob. than that the Charlestown ch. rec. was enrich. with a postlimin. addit. It must always be rememb. that we have not orig. ch. rec. of early yrs. in either Boston or Charlestown ch. but only copies, made prob. betw. 1650 and 1670, of both. He was usually [[vol. 3, p. 16]] call. serg. and d. 28 June 1681, aged 71. Esther, his w. d. 2 or 5 July 1679.

His d. Jane m. 17 May 1680, Samuel Cleveland. His gr.s. Solomon was disting. by personal courage, as is seen at Lovewell's fight, in Hoyt's Antiq. Researches, 218, 274; and he was k. 8 Sept. 1755, when the Fr. and Ind. under Baron Dieskau were defeat. Five of this name had, in 1826, been gr. at Dart. Sometimes it was writ. as sound. Kies.

Hannah, 28 June 1669; Sarah, 31 May 1670; and Jerusha, 19 Apr. 1672. Errors are easi. found in rec. of the elder days; but it is not necessary in this case to charge wrong on either town or ch. He prob. d. early in 1685, for his inv. is of 29 June. EDWARD, Boston 1645, a sawyer, liv. at Muddy riv. had Reuben, bapt. 30 June 1653; and Elizabeth b. 27 Jan. bapt. 4 Mar. 1655, both at Roxbury, in right of their mo.
