LATTIMORE, or LATIMER, CHRISTOPHER, Marblehead 1648, in 1663 sold dwel.-ho. to Robert Hooper, but was there liv. 1675. HUGH, Marblehead, perhaps s. of the preced. m. 1669, Mary, d. of Susanna, w. of William Pitt, or Pitts, prob. by Philip Alley, her former h. JOHN, Wethersfield, had Rebecca, b. 1646; Naomi, 1648; Abigail, 1649; John, 1650; Elisheba, 1652; Jonathan, 1655; and Bezaleel, 1657; all with w. Ann nam. in his will 1662, when he d. Elizabethm. Thomas Hollister of W. ROBERT, New London, mariner, a. 1660, m. prob. at Boston, Ann, wid. of Matthew Jones, and d. of George Griggs, had Robert, b. 5 Feb. 1664; and Elizabeth 14 Nov. 1667; and he d. 1671. Elizabeth m. Jonathan Prentiss. ROBERT, New London, s. of the preced. d. 2 Nov. 1728, leav. John, perhaps H. C. 1703; Robert; Jonathan; Samuel; and Peter.

LATTING, LETTEN, or LETTIN, JOSIAH, Huntington, or Oyster Bay, L. I. 1685, was s. prob. of Richard. RICHARD, Concord, had Josiah, b. 20 Feb. 1641; and ano. s. on 12 Sept. 1643; but the rec. gives not the name; rem. to Fairfield, and thence in few yrs. to L. I. a. Huntington. In 1663 he was order. to depart for not submit. to jurisdict. of Conn. and in Nov. 1672 was by New York denounc. for disloyal speech against the Duke.

LAURIE, FRANCIS, Salem, of wh. the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. Ir. 15, gives all that I have learn. that his will of 6 Nov. 1665, pro. June foll. ment. s.-in-law John Neal and w. Mary, and gr.ch. Jeremiah, John Jonathan, Joseph, and Lydia But conject. is bold eno. to suggest, that the same man is intend. where Felt, II. 447, places the graveyard "on the hill above Francis Lawe's ho.;" and there is no doubt of the soundness of the conject. after turn. to the artic. Lawes in this volume; but whose reading, Felt's or Patch's should be prefer. must be left to ano. eye to decide. GILBERT, Boston 1686, went to preach that yr. in abs. of Moody, at Portsmouth, was prob. a Scotchman, and may be presum. to have gone home in 1689.

LAVENUKE, STEPHEN, a Frenchman, m. 25 Sept. 1672, Mary Dival, perhaps French also, had Isabella, b. 22 Dec. 1673; Judith, 1677, wh. d. 22 Apr. 1758; and Stephen, in 1678, wh. d. 1 Jan. 1764.

RICHARD, Wethersfield 1638, may, therefore, have first been at Watertown, m.

Ann, wid. of Benjamin Phillips, wh. he m. 3 Feb. 1696, wh. d. 11 Jan. 1716, aged only 37, says Bond, wh. is a strange error, for she bore her first ch. to former h. above 36 yrs. bef.

Eng. is first heard of at Martha's Vineyard 1676, had been bred to divinity, I presume, but kn. nothing, for even Cotton Mather, tho. he gives him a place among his contempo. fellow serv. in Hecatompolis, felt unable to introduce him into either of his three classes; liv. aft. few yrs. at Boston, join. with our third, or Old South, ch. (had it been the sec. wh. then was taught by the Mathers, f. and s. his name would have found, as it should, room in the Magnalia, III.). 

He took the o. of freem. 1680, was call. to preach 1683 at Salem vill. now Danvers, where no ch. was yet form. but George Burrows had taught the people above two yrs. and they [[vol. 3, p. 64]] would have ord.
