THOMAS, wh. came in the Elizabeth, from Ipswich, 1634, aged 24, with w. Elizabeth 20, was eldest s. of the preced. bapt. 30 Nov. 1609, sent by the f. in adv. to make prepar. for the fam. migrat. but no more is kn. of him, so that it is not improb. that soon aft. his f. arr. he went home. THOMAS, Hartford, s. of the first John, m. Hannah, a. of William Hills, had Thomas, b. a. 1677; John; Mary, 1686; Naomi, 1693; and Samuel, 1696.

I presume his wid. m. 11 Oct. 1704 Ezekiel Lewis. WILLIAM, Boston 1649, in few yrs. was of Charlestown with w. Grace, and call. a sieve-maker; may have had d. Sarah m. to Richard Wilson bef. Aug. 1654, tho. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 277, a differ. conject. is giv.
KILHAM, KILLAM, KILLUM, KELHAM, or KEELUM, AUSTIN, or AUGUSTINE, Salem 1637, had then, says Felt, a gr. of ld. but was of Dedham soon after, and may have short time liv. at Ipswich; by w.

KILTON, ROBERT, is on the list of Gallop's comp. in Phips's crusade against Quebec 1690, but of what town he was inhab. or of any thing else a. him, we are ign. yet of THOMAS in the comp. of Capt. Withington of Dorchester in the same disastr. expedit. our kn. is no larger. See the Hist. of D. 256.
KIMBALL, sometimes KEMBALL, BENJAMIN, Rowley 1664, prob. s. of Richard, had been, 1659, perhaps of Exeter, m. Apr. 1661, Mary, d. of Robert Hazeltine, had Ann, b. 22 Dec. foll. was freem. 1682.

EPHRAIM, Wenham, freem. 1690. GILES, Charlestown 1656, br. of Thomas, d. at Boston, 1 Aug. 1659. HENRY, Watertown, prob. br. of Richard the first, came in the Elizabeth, 1634, from Ipswich, aged 44, with w. Susanna, 35; ch. Elizabeth 4; and Susan, 1 and 1/2; and serv.

His wid. m. again, and d. 19 Aug. 1684. Elizabeth m. Capt. Thomas Straight, and Susanna m. John Randall, both of W. HENRY, Ipswich 1640, eldest s. of Richard the first, perhaps sett. first at Watertown, and from Ipswich rem. and may have been the blacksmith of Boston, 1657, wh. had w. Mary, that outliv. him, and had admin. of his est. Jan. 1676; and s. Timothy finish. the settlem. of est. aft. d. of his mo. He was a man of large business.
HENRY, Charlestown, m. 13 Nov. [[vol. 3, p. 22]] 1656, Sarah, that I presume to be d. of John Fownell, wh. d. 10 Aug. foll. He m. sec. w.

RICHARD, Watertown, prob. br. of Henry of the same came from Ipswich, 0. E. 1634, aged 39, in the Elizabeth, with w. Ursula; ch. Henry, 15; Richard, 11; Mary, 9; Martha, 5; John, 3; and Thomas, 1; and serv. John Laverick, 15; was freem. 6 May 1635; rem. 1638 to Ipswich, there had more ch. and d. 1675, leav. Henry, Richard, Mary, Thomas, Benjamin, Elizabeth Caleb, Sarah, and ano. d. w. of John Severns. He is call. by Thomas Scott (a passeng. with w. and fam. in the same sh.) br. and this may mean, that one m. a sis. of the other, or they m. sis. but in this case not, I judge. the mere ch. relationsh. See Scott. It is said, that two of his s. Thomas and William, were k. by the Ind. in 1675; but I suppose Caleb was one. A William K. of capt. Oliver's comp. was wound. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. battle of Narraganset, but he was of Boston, and serv. as substitute for his master, John Clear. An Elizabeth K. aged 13, was passeng. in the same sh. with Henry and Richard; but on the custom-ho. list is not insert. as ch. of either, but under the care of Thomas Reyner. RICHARD, Bradford, s. of Richard, b. in Eng. long liv. in Ipswich, but was of B. when freem. 1685. SAMUEL, Wenham, freem. 1682. SAMUEL, Boston, mariner, perhaps eldest s. of Thomas of the same, may have been a soldier in Moseley's comp. in Dec. 1675, and d. 1684, on ret. voyage and his f. took admin.
THOMAS, Charlestown 1653, merch. by w. Elizabeth Trarice, perhaps eldest d. of Nicholas, had John, b. 1 July 1656, rem. to Boston, and had Sarah, 19 Apr. 1666; Rebecca, 12 July 1668; Henry, 14 Mar. 1670, and Elizabeth 8 Sept. 1671. He was bur. on Copp's hill, d. 29 Jan. 1689, was b. 15 Jan. 1622. Sarah m. Richard Knight of Boston, and attain. no little celebr. as skil. in trade and observant of manners. See Knight. THOMAS, Ipswich, s. of Richard, an early sett. of that pt. of Rowley, that aft. was call. Bradford, had eight ch. of wh. the eldest was Richard. He was k. by the Ind. 3 May 1676, when [[vol. 3, p. 23]] his w. Mary and five ch. Joanna, Thomas, Joseph, Priscilla, and John, were tak. prison. carr. a. forty miles into the wilderness, and allow. to come home 13 June foll. His est. was good. THOMAS, Dover 1660. This name is spell. oft. Kemble. Ten had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and twenty two at other coll. in N. E.
KIMBERLY, ABRAHAM, New Haven, s. of Thomas, by w. Hannah, wh. was bapt. on adm. of the ch. prob. 24, certain. not (as the rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 360, says) 25 July 1659, wh. was Monday, had Hannah, b. 11 Jan. 1656; Sarah, bapt. July 1659, d. young; Mary, b. 1668; Sarah, 1672; Abraham, 1675; and fam. tradit. says, went to S. Carolina, and there was k. by the Ind. These ch. were all b. in Albemarle Co. of Carolina. His wid. came home, and m. John Curtis of Stratford, and there she had put on rec. the b. of ea. of the ch. Mary m. John Blakeman, and Sarah m. Benjamin Hurd. With this fam. Goodwin was quite bewilder.
ELEAZER, Glastonbury, s. of Thomas, said to be the first male b. in New Haven, was in 1661 sch.master at Wethersfield, and contin. in that employm. at intervals till 1689; was freem. 1667, and in 1696 succeed. Col. John Allyn, as Secr. of the Col. and so cont. to his d. Feb. 1709. He left s. Thomas, and four ds. refer. to in his will, two m. and two, Elizabeth and Ruth, unm. NATHANIEL, New Haven, s. of Thomas, had Nathaniel, b. 4 Jan. 1667; Elizabeth and two other ds. Apr. 1679, one without name, the other, Sarah. THOMAS, Dorchester 1635, had w. Alice, with wh. he rem. to New Haven 1639; his est. was then small. His w. by wh. he had Eleazer, bapt. 17 Nov. 1639; and Abiah, 19 Dec. 1641; beside five or six others, d. 1659, at New Haven; he m. ano. w. Mary, wid. of William Preston, and rem. to Stratford, there d. 1673; in his will of 11 Jan. of that yr. he names his s. Thomas, Abraham, Nathaniel, and Eleazer, w. Marg and sev. ds. Of these Hannah was b. so late as 1656; Abiah m. a Boardman, and she and three ch. are refer. to in his will; and Mary m. Nathaniel Hayes, prob. and her 3 ch. Nathaniel, Elizabeth and Mary, are nam. in it.
THOMAS was freem. 1669, had w. Hannah, and with Nathaniel, propr. at New Haven 1685; but T. had no ch. and it is said Nathaniel left s. of the same name. Great var. in spell. of this name occurs both at D. and New Haven; Kinnersly, Kimerly, Kemmerly, and even with C. for first let. are found. At New Haven the fam. is perpet. with repute, and four had been gr. at Yale in 1829.
KIME, WILLIAM, Dover 1668-71.
KIMWRIGHT, GEORGE, Dorchester, m. a. 1653, the wealthy wid. of John Holland, rem. to Cambridge, a. 1664; but I doubt the spell. of the surname.
KINCAID, DANIEL, New Hampsh. came, 1689, prob. from Scotland.
KIND, ARTHUR, Boston, by w. Jane had Sarah, b. Nov. 1646; James, wh. d. 9 July 1654; Mary, wh. d. 27 Oct. 1655; James, again, 29 Oct. 1655; Nathaniel, May 1658; Thomas, 26 Sept. 1659; Mary, 27 Apr. 1662; and William, 26 Feb. 1665. This name is pervert. to Knide in Geneal. Reg. XV. 134.
KING, ALEXANDER, Wickford, R. I. 1674. BENJAMIN, Northampton, s. of John of the same, m. 16 May 1700, Mary, d. of Abel James, had Elisha, b. 11 Nov. 1717, the only ch. and he d. 20 Jan. foll. His wid. m. 1721, Jonathan Graves. CLEMENT, Marshfield, by Miss Thomas, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 192, is favor. with w. Susanna, wh. d. or was bur. [[vol. 3, p. 24]] 19 June 1669; but whose s. or whose d. when b. or m. is not to be easi. kn. A later report, in the same vol. 229, makes the d. of w. occur. thirty yrs. aft. DANIEL, Lynn 1647, a merch. b. a. 1601, a. 28 May 1672. His will of 7 Feb. preced. pro. 26 June foll. names w. and ch. Daniel, Hannah, w. of John Blaney, Elizabeth Redding, and Sarah, w. of Ezekiel Needham. His wid. Elizabeth wh. had been wid. Corwin, says Lewis, d. 26 Feb. 1677 or 8. His est. was very good. DANIEL, Charlestown 1658, s. prob. of the preced. was, perhaps, of Salem 1676, but intermed. at Lynn, m. 11 Mar. 1663, Tabitha Walker, had Richard b. 1 Mar. 1668; Tabitha, 6 Jan. 1670; John; Sarah, 11 Apr. 1672; Elizabeth 19 Mar. 1674. John has a date, giv. by Felt, but as it is inconsist. with the one that precedes him, it is mark. here as the other may be erron. DAVID, Westfield, br. of Benjamin, by w. Abigail had David, b. 1702; Thankful, 1704; Moses, 1706; Stephen, 1708; Benjamin, 1710; Aaron, 1714; Asahel, and Eldad, tw. 1718, of wh. the first nam. d. soon; and Gideon, 1722; rem. to a new planta. now Sheffield, and d. 1710. In his will he nam. all the ch. exc. Asahel.
EDWARD, Windsor, an Irish serv. had gr. of ld. 1663, liv. on Long Isl. when he d. 1702; had two ds. nam. Mary Hilliard and Sarah Cady, req. adm. on his est. Their h.'s names are not found. Perhaps there were other ch.

Mehitable, on 25 Dec. 1636; John, 1 Nov. 1638; and Deliverance, 31 Oct. 1641. In his case, we find not the w. in the valua. list of ch. mem. as was commonly the much more natural occurr. but he seems to have been the superior polemic, if not devotee; as, in the antinom. perversity of 1637, he was one of the five men in S. requir. to be disarm. for the public safety; and in the more violent ragings of spiritual insubordin. 1659, his Christian kindness to the Quakers expos. him to whip. and banishm.
