Holbrook; Davis, w. of Tobias, m. 13 Dec. 1649; and Barnard; of wh. the last was d. leav. five ch. JOHN, Weymouth, s. of the preced. by w. Elizabeth had John, b. 30 Apr. 1664; Henry, 11 May 1668; Samuel, 28 May 1670, Elizabeth 9 July 1673; Deliverance, 12 Mar. 1676; Susanna, Mar. 1678, d. soon; and Susanna, again, 12 Apr. 1679; was freem. 1666, rem. to Bridgewater, and d. 1690. 

THOMAS, Weymouth, br. of the preced. by w. Rebecca had Rebecca, b. 2 July 1664, d. young; Hannah, [[vol. 3, p. 28]] 1 June 1666; Thomas, 11 Feb. 1671; John; and four others; was freem. 1681. Of the orig. stock descend. have been num. and reput.

KINGSBURY, ELEAZER, Dedham, s. of Joseph of the same, was freem. 1690. EPHRAIM, Haverhill, perhaps s. of Henry of the same, k. by the Ind. 2 May 1676, prob. unm. HENRY, Ipswich 1638, came, with w. Margaret and two or more ch. in the Talbot, one of the fleet of Winthrop 1630; is No. 23 on the list of mem. in the ch. of Boston, and his w. 26, against her name being writ. "dead since," that means, I presume, to refer to the orig. MS. lost aft. the third or fourth yr. Of him we learn no more, but possib. his liv. at I. 1648. Winthrop Appx. A. 41 and 45. HENRY, Ipswich, call. hims. 54 yrs. old in a depon. of 1669, with w. Susanna, by wh. he had Susanna, wh. m. 29 Jan. 1663, Joseph Pike; John; James, perhaps; Joseph, b. a. 1656, and other ch. prob.

JOHN, Watertown, freem. 3 Mar. 1636, rem. that yr. to Dedham, of wh. he was rep. 1647. From his will, of 2 Dec. 1659, pro. 16 Oct. foll. we find that his w. was Margaret, only ch. John, br. Joseph, and his s. John, and kinsmen Henry K. of Ipswich, and Thomas Cooper of Seaconk, all, with other childr. of br. Joseph to be favor. with parts of his est. JOHN, Dedham, perhaps s. of the preced. d. bef. mid. life, and his wid. Elizabeth d. of Thomas Fuller, m. 17 Sept. 1672, Michael Metcalf, third of the same. JOHN, Rowley 1667, s. prob. of Henry the sec. cannot be the man (yet was prob. his f.) ment. by Coffin, wh. says he had by w.

His w. d. 31 July 1680; and he m. 7 Sept. 1681 ano. Mary, was freem. 1682. 

JOSEPH, Haverhill, s. of Henry the sec. m. 2 Apr. 1669, Love Ayers, as fam. tradit. tells, and had Joseph, Nathaniel, Mary, Elizabeth and Susanna, with wh. it adds, that he rem. a. 1708 (when his employer, [[vol. 3, p. 29]] capt.

THOMAS was br. of the first Henry perhaps, but I have knowl. of no more, exc. that he agreed to emb. with him. See Winthrop II. 340. 

THOMAS, Haverhill, s. perhaps of the preced. sw. fidel. 1677, was more prob. s. of the sec. Henry, m. 29 June 1691, wid. Deborah Eastman, and, next, 19 Jan. 1703, Sarah Haines, wh outliv. him, but no ch. by either is kn. Two of this name had been gr at Harv. in 1834, and twelve at other N. E. coll.

KINGSLEY, or KINSLEY, ELDAD, Rehoboth 1663, s. of John of Dorchester, aid. that yr. Rev. John Myles in form. first Bapt. ch. of Mass.; m.

It is print. in Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. 445. His will, of 2 Nov. 1677, ment. on y 3 ch. Edward, Enos, and Freedom; but a d. prob. then d. had m. John French of Northampton. Perhaps ano. d. m.

Hannah had Hannah, b. 27 July 1666; Elizabeth 22 Nov. 1657; and Mary, 3 Mar. 1659, possib. this may be the ch. that d. 26 Mar. 1658, as [[vol. 3, p. 30]] near that time in the yr. the count. is easi. mistak. in rec. He may be the same as the preced. I think. A Samuel, perhaps his s. was b. 1662, and in the next generat. of Bridgewater, m. Mary, d. of John Washburn. STEPHEN, Dorchester, perhaps br. of John, freem. 13 May 1640, rep; 1650, rem. to Braintree, there had Mary, b. 30 Aug. 1640; ord. rul. Eld. of the ch. that was gather. 17 Sept. 1639.

Abigail was bur. the same, and Increase, the next mo. and the mo. and [[vol. 3, p. 31]] her s. Richard were bur. in Mar. of that yr.

KIRKEETE, KIRKEET, or CARKEET, WILLIAM, Saco, d. 1662, leav. prop. by inv. of £134. The name seems strange, yet one William K. of Lynn, wh. may have come from Saco, by w. Lydia had Robert, b. at Salem 11 Nov. 1697.

KIRKHAM, THOMAS, Wethersfield 1648, had Samuel, and, perhaps, other ch. but not on rec. The name is various. spelt, sometimes with initial C.

[[vol. 3, p. 33]]

KITCHERELL, KETCHERWELL, KETCHERING, or KECHERELL, sometimes with the first let. C., JOSEPH, Charlestown 1636, perhaps the same, whose w. perhaps, or sis. Sarah on adm. there by the ch. 30 Nov. 1643, is spell. Kitcherin, and for wh. Felt shows, in Salem, gr. of ld. 1639, and adm. to the ch. in the same yr. I doubt he was not many yrs. at either place, being mark. in the ch. rec. as drown. as in Essex Inst. Coll. I. 39, where the c is mistak. for t. SAMUEL, Hartford, by w. Martha had Martha; Samuel, and Hannah, b. 4 Jan. 1646; and d. 1650. His wid. m. 2 Jan. 1651, Anthony Dorchester of Springfield, where Samuel d. 9 June 1651, and Hannah d. 29 Apr. 1658, and Martha m. 1 Dec. 1659, Abel Wright.

KITTREDGE, JOHN, Billerica 1661, or earlier, the ancest. of the many thousands of the name in our ld. came, it is said, in youth with his mo. was a farmer; had John, b. 24 Jan. 1666; James, 28 Mar. 1668; Daniel, 23 July 1670; Jonathan, 1674, d. 1696; and Benoni, 1677, posthum. for the f. d. 18 Oct. 1676. Much do I regret, that of those five s. our informat. is confin. to JOHN, Billerica, s. of the preced. m. 3 Aug. 1685, Hannah, perhaps d. by sec. w. of William French, had six s. and five ds. and d. 27 Apr. 1714. He was, says Farmer, the first of the fam. with that prefix, Dr. wh. has since been so freq. with his progeny, of wh. three at Harv. and nineteen at other N. E. coll. had been gr. in 1834.

KNAPP, AARON, Taunton 1643, may have been f. of Elizabeth wh. m. 17 Feb. 1674, Nicholas Stoughton; and beside had Mary, bapt. at Roxbury, 20 Nov. 1659; and he d. bef. 1676. Baylies, II. 267, 278. CALEB, Stamford, s. of Nicholas, freem. 1670, made his will 11 Dec. 1674, d. soon. He names w. Hannah, and ch. Caleb, wh. was b. 1661; John, 1664; Moses; Samuel; Sarah; and Hannah. JAMES, Watertown 1652, s. of William the first, b. in Eng. m. Elizabeth d. of John Warren, had Elizabeth b. 21 Apr. 1655; and James, 26 May 1657, wh. d. 26 Sept. foll. In the autumn of 1671, at Groton, where he then liv. his w. suffer. terrib. by witchcraft, if the trifling story in the Magn. VI. 67, is good for any thing. JOHN, Watertown, br. of the preced. m. 25 May 1660, Sarah Young, had John, b. 4 May 1661; and Sarah, 5 Sept. 1662; and sev. others, for his will of 22 Jan. 1696, pro. 27 Apr. foll. tho. it names not either of these, wh. were, perhaps, d. ment. wid. Sarah, and ch. Henry, Isaac, John, Daniel, and Abigail. JOHN, Taunton, m. 7 Oct. 1685, Sarah Austin. Possib. he was s. of the preced. JONATHAN, Fairfield, s. of the first Roger, d. young, for his inv. is of 1 Feb. 1676. 

JOSHUA, Greenwich 1670, s. of Nicholas, m. 9 June 1657, at Stamford, Hannah Close, had good est. by inv. of 1685, tho. he d. 27 Oct. 1684, leav. ch. Hannah, aged 25; Joshua, 22; Joseph, 20; Ruth, [[vol. 3, p. 34]] 18; Timothy, 16; Benjamin, 10; Caleb, 7; Jonathan, 5. His wid. m. John Bowers. MOSES, Greenwich 1670, br. of the preced. prob. youngest, but perhaps was only a ld. holder, and never liv. at G. but at Stamford as early as 1667, and there his f. gave him ld. by his will; m. a. 1669, Abigail, d. of Richard Wescoat. Whether he had ch. I am not advis. but he was liv. certain. at S. up to 1701, perhaps later. NICHOLAS, Watertown, may have come in the fleet with Winthrop and Saltonstall 1630, by w. Elinor had Jonathan, wh. was bur. 27 Dec. 1631; Timothy, b. 14 Dec. 1632; Joshua, 5 Jan. 1635; Caleb, 20 Jan. 1637; Sarah, 5 Jan. 1639; Ruth, 6 Jan. 1641; and Hannah, 6 Mar. 1643; rem. to Stamford, there, I suppose, had Moses, and Lydia. His w. Elinor d. 16 Aug. 1658, and he m. 9 Mar. foll. Unity, wid. of Peter Brown, wh. had been wid. of Clement Buxton; d. Apr. 1670. His will of 15 of that mo. names four s. Caleb, Joshua, Moses, Timothy; and four ds. Sarah, Hannah, Lydia, and Ruth. Sarah m. 6 Sept. 1667, Peter Disbrough; and Ruth m. 20 Nor. foll. Joseph Ferris. 

ROGER, New Haven 1643-7, Fairfield 1656-70, and prob. later, had made his will 21 Mar. 1673; nam. w. Elizabeth and ch. Jonathan, Josiah, Lydia, Roger, John, Nathaniel, Elizabeth and Mary, some of wh. were minors, and his inv. is of 20 Sept. 1675. ROGER, Fairfield, s. of the preced. d. 1691, but no acco. is found of his fam. THOMAS, Sudbury, m. at Watertown, 19 Sept. 1688, Mary, d. of John Grout, and d. beyond sea, leav. wid. and ch. Sarah, aged 9 yrs. and Mary, 6, when admin. was issu. 28 May 1697. TIMOTHY, Stamford, s. perhaps eldest, of Nicholas, rep. for Rye 1670, was of Greenwich, liv. 1697. In that century a singlep was used. 

WILLIAM, Watertown 1636, d. 30 Aug. 1658, "aged a. 80 yrs." Perhaps he came as early as Nicholas; and had, in his will of 1655, not nam. any w. but refer. to ch. of wh. sev. were brot. by him from Eng. and to gr.ch.
