LANE, AMBROSE, Portsmouth 1648-50, then call. (as from its orig. settlem. it had been), Strawberry bank, shipmaster, was, perhaps, br. of Sampson, wh. mortga. to him that yr. all his prop. for £1,000. ANDREW, Hingham 1635, s. of William, was call. feltmaker, by w. Tryphena [[vol. 3, p. 51]] had Mary, Abigail, and Andrew, all bapt. in Aug. 1646; John, 30 Jan. 1648; and with this s. I pause to expose many errors. To him is giv. s. Samuel, b. 16 Mar. 1678 by w. Mehitable Hobart. Sorry am I to obs. that in the Geneal. Reg. XIII 91, the statem. that "John, bapt. in Norton, 30 June 1648, m. Mehitable Hobart," labors under such incongru. It says that Andrew and Tryphena had seven childr. when the names of nine are kn. No s. Samuel had he, no Mehitable Hobart can be found for that John to m. and he could not be bapt. at Norton that day, for the town was not begun to be sett. till many yrs. aft. nor could he be bapt. anywhere else in N. E. on 30 June 1648, wh. was not Sunday, but Friday. Beside those four ch. we find Ephraim, bapt. Feb. 1650; Deborah, 20 June 1652; Joshua, 20 Aug. 1654; Caleb, 17 July 1657; and Hannah, 17 Oct. 1658; and he d. 1 May 1675. His wid. d. 2 June 1707, "a. 95 yrs. of age," says the town rec. All the ds. were m. Abigail m. perhaps, John Low, first, but certain. 27 Dec. 1665, Daniel Stodder, and Deborah m. 30 Dec. 1674, William Sprague; but whether the date of Mary, wh. m. William Orcutt, were earlier or later in m. than her sis. Abigail, is uncert.; and Hannah m. Thomas with a surname utterly illegib. in the orig. and plain. false in the copy of Prob. reg. All the s. and the hs. of the ds. gave, 27 July 1675, to their ms. acquit. of the est. of dec. for her life, wh. has signa. of each, but Orcutt's is by [ ] mark, and the h. of the youngest d. might as well have used a bear's claw to write his. 

ANDREW, Hingham, s. of the preced. freem. 1677, by w. Elizabeth had John, b. 13 Oct. 1673; Elizabeth 20 Nov. 1675; Andrew, 8 Feb. 1678; Bethia, 10 Aug. 1680; Isaac, 8 Apr. 1683; Jonathan, 27 Dec. 1685; and Solomon, 12 Jan. 1694, wh. d. at 21 yrs. He d. 4 Dec. 1717, and his wid. d. 12 Nov. 1727. DANIEL, New London 1652, m. Catharine, wid. of Thomas Doxy, rem. 1661 to L. I. was one of the grantees of Brookhaven 1666. EBENEZER.

Johnson's comp. in Philip's war.

In 1695 he rem. to K. there d. 12 Apr. 1718; and his wid. d. 11 Mar. 1725. He was rep. for S. 1686. SAMSON, Portsmouth 1631, one of Mason's men, said to have come from Teignmouth in Devon, purch. 1646 the est. that had been Thomas Wannerton's and was then call. master of the Neptune of Dartmouth, in 1650 mortga. the est. and his other prop. includ. a ship on the stocks to Ambrose L. bef. ment. and prob. went home. 

SAMUEL, Hadley, had been a soldier, 1676, from the E. under capt. Turner, m. 11 Dec. 1677, Sarah, d. of the first John Dickinson of H. had Samuel, and Sarah, rem. to Suffield, there had Mary, b. 7 May 1684; John, 3 Apr. 1686; and Elizabeth and he d. a 1690, leav. these five ch. and his wid. m. 27 Feb. 1691, Martin Kellogg. WILLIAM, Dorchester 1641, from whose will, made 28 Feb. 1651, pro. 6 July 1654, we learn that he had s. Andrew, and George, both of Hingham, d. Mary Long, and Elizabeth w. of Thomas Rider, beside ds. whose bapt. names are not seen, ws. of Nathaniel Baker, and of Thomas Lincoln of Hingham. 

WILLIAM, Boston 1651, freem. 1657, by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 23 Jan. 1652; John, 5 Feb. 1654; and Mary, 15 May 1656, says rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 312. His w. d. 2 May 1656, by G. R. X. 220; and he m. 21 Aug. foll. Mary, d. of Thomas Brewer of Roxbury, had Sarah, 15 June 1657; William, 1 Oct. 1659; and Elizabeth 3 Feb. 1662. I testif. that both the estr. in Geneal. Reg. that are so inconsist. are truly tak. from what purports [[vol. 3, p. 54]] to be the rec. in Boston, and both in the same handwrit. But the age was not, I think, quite so credul. as to receive for "absolute verity" assert. that the mo. d. thirteen days bef. her last ch. was b. Possib. the recorder might have intend. 22 instead of 2 May. Instances of such carelessness are oft. seen. WILLIAM, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 21 June 1680, Sarah Webster, d. of Thomas of Hampton. Six of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and seven at other N. E. coll.

LARGE, JERVICE, Scituate, a serv. of Samuel Hinckley, brot. prob. from Co. Kent, was bur. 9 Aug. 1636. JOHN, Branford 1672, perhaps came over from L. I. may be the man wh. m. at Saybrook, 1 Nov. 1659, Phebe, a. of Thomas Lee, and possib. was s. of William. WILLIAM, Hingham 1635, rem. with w. to Cape Cod, perhaps further.

LARKHAM, MORDECAI, Beverly 1681, has num. descend. it is believ. writ. the name Larcom. THOMAS, Dover 1640, was a cause, or occasion [[vol. 3, p. 57]] of trouble, tho. so popular for a time that the people call. their town aft. that from wh. he came, Northam, near Barnstable, in Devon; but he went off in 1642, d. at home 1669, in 68th yr. His s. George, bred at. Trinity Coll. Cambridge, was min. of Cockermouth, in Cumberland, eject. 1662, d. 26 Dec. 1700, in 71st yr.

LARKIN, EDWARD, Charlestown 1638, by w. Joan had John, b. 10 Mar. 1640, Sarah, 4 Sept. 1641; but ano. rec. says Elizabeth b. 5 Sept., Thomas, 18 Oct. 1644; and, I presume, Edward; certain. Sarah, again, 12 Mar. 1648; was freem. 13 May 1640, ar. co. 1644. He d. bef. mid. life, prob. and the wid. m. John Pentecost; and she d. 27 Jan. 1686, aged 70. EDWARD, Newport, in the list of freem. 1655, was rep. 1663. He was of Westerly, in the same Col. 1669; and by w. Elizabeth d. of the first Henry Hall, had Edward and John, prob. also Roger, and d. Hannah to dwell there ten yrs. later. EDWARD, Westerly, s. of the preced. m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Cottrell, had Stephen, Nicholas, David, Elizabeth Penelope, Tabitha, Edward, John, Samuel, and Lydia. EDWARD, Charlestown, perhaps s. of the first Edward, m. 1 Nov. 1688, Mary Walker, had Edward, wh. d. 18 Nov. 1689; John, bapt. 7 Sept. 1690; Mary, 10 Sept. 1693; John, again, 17 Feb. 1635; Edward, again, 13 Sept. 1696; Joanna, 19 Mar. 1699; and Samuel, 26 Oct. 1701. 

JOHN, Charlestown, perhaps br. of the first Edward, by w. Joan had Hannah, b. 16 Mar. 1643, wh. m. 15 Feb. 1665, John Newell, outliv. him, and d. 10 Dec. 1704.

Robert d. in few wks.; Joanna, again, 12 Mar. 1676; Sarah, 2 Dec. 1677; and he d. 17 Feb. 1678. ROGER, Westerly, perhaps s. of the first Edward of the same, m. Hannah, d. of the sec. James Babcock of the same; but I kn. no more. THOMAS, Charlestown, s. of Edward, shoemak. m. 13 Sept. 1666, Hannah Remington, wh. d. 9 Nov. 1673, and 18 June foll. m. Elizabeth d. of Francis Dowse, wid. of Samuel Miles, had Thomas, wh. d. 20 May 1676; and Thomas, again, bapt. 9 Sept. and d. 8 Nov. 1677; and d. hims. 10 Dec. foll. of smallpox. Gladly would we receive better notes of this very num. fam. If the stocks spring from Edward alone, or not, is not kn. to me. At Salem, in 1668, was Mordecai, but unless he be the same as Larcom, of him I hear nothing, exc. that he sign. that yr. petit. against imposts.

LARRABEE, BENJAMIN, Falmouth, s. of Isaac, a milit. man, recov. the prop. of his f. wh. with his fam. had been forc. to fly from the war, m. Deborah, d. of John Ingersoll, had Benjamin, b. 1700; and he d. 1733. See Willis, II. 27. GREENFIELD, Saybrook, had (by his w. [[vol. 3, p. 58]] Phebe Brown of Providence, wid. of Thomas Lee, wh. d. on his pass. leav. her with three ch.) Greenfield, b. 20 Apr. 1648; John, 23 Feb. 1650; Elizabeth 23 Jan. 1653; Joseph, Mar. 1655, d. young; and Sarah, 3 Mar. 1658. He was d. in Nov. 1662. Elizabeth m.

He liv. in that pt. of Norwich, now Preston, and d. 4 Feb. 1739, almost 91 yrs. old. ISAAC, Falmouth a. 1680, being driv. off by the Ind. went to Lynn, says Willis; had Benjamin, b. 1666, at Casco, bef ment.; beside Samuel, and Thomas. In Maine the name spread much. 

JOHN, Lyme, s. of the first Greenfield, d. Oct. 1725, leav. sev. ch. of wh. were John and Joseph of Coventry. WILLIAM, m. at Malden Nov. 1655, Elizabeth perhaps d. of George Felt was freem. 1690. Sometimes this name is pervert. to Leatherby, as very oft. it was sound.

LARY, CORNELIUS, Exeter, took o. of fidel. 30 Nov. 1677.

LASKIN, HUGH, Salem 1636, freem. 22 May 1639. His w. d. 28 July 1658, and he d. Mar. 1659.

LATCOME, WILLIAM, a passeng. in the Hercules 1634, as print. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 267, wh. may be error for Larcom, or Larkham; but nothing can be kn.

LATHAM, CARY, Cambridge, m Elizabeth d. of John Masters, and prob. wid. of Edmund Lockwood, had Thomas, b. Nov. 1639; Joseph, 2 Dec. of a yr. to be supplied by conject. as the rec. is defic.; rem. early to New London, where he was of active serv. rep. 1664, and aft. to 70. he had there Elizabeth wh. m. 25 Jan. 1678, John Leeds; Jane, m. Hugh Hubbard; Lydia, m. John Packer; and Hannah, wh. m. prob. John Lockwood. He d. 1685. 

JOSEPH, New London, s. of the preced. took w. Mary at Newfoundland, there had Cary, b. 14 July 1668, and at New London ten more ch. at his d. in 1706 leav. seven s. one d, LEWIS, Newport, of wh. we kn. no more, but that his d. Frances m. Jeremiah Clark, and was mo. of Gov. Walter and others; but it may be that he never came to our shores. ROBERT, Cambridge, perhaps br. of Cary, liv. two yrs. or more with Rev. Thomas Shepard, rem. to Marshfield, where he was constable 1643, thence to Plymouth, where he m. Susanna, d. of John Winslow, in 1649, and had Mercy, b. 2 June 1650; bef. 1667 rem. to Bridgewater, had s. James, Chilton, Joseph, Elizabeth Hannah, and Sarah. Mitchell thinks him s. of William. Hannah m. Joseph Wachburn. THOMAS, New London, s. of Cary, m. 15 Oct. 1673, Rebecca, d. of Hugh Wells, had only ch. Samuel; and his wid. m. 24 June 1676, John Packer. Groton side of the harbor of New London was the resid. of the fam. still perpet. there. 

WILLIAM, PlYmouth, came in the Mayflower, 1620, serv. to Gov. Carver, only a youth, and, in 1627, had sh. in the div. of cattle, being in the lot with Gov. Bradford, yet was never nam. as one of the Mayflower's comp. in 1620 when he was a boy under Carver's charge, and for the div. of lds. in 1624, with ano. serv. of C. may have help. John Howland to count four heads. By the discov. of Bradford's Hist. his right to passage in the first sh. is prov. He was of Duxbury 1637-9, and Marshfield [[vol. 3, p. 59]] 1643, and 8, and in Bradford we see, that aft. so long resid. here, he went home to Eng. thence to the Bahamas, and d. of starvation. Of one Latham, in our country, there is idle tradit. that he was brot. up with Charles I. but no benefit or evil of the companionsh. is boasted.
