LEWIS, DANIEL, Westerly, R. I. 1679, perhaps was s. of John of the same, m. Mary Button, d. prob. of Peter, and in his will of 1 Feb. [[vol. 3, p. 85]] 1718, names eldest s. John, Jonathan, Mary, Dorcas, Daniel, and Hannah. DAVID, Westerly, br. of the preced. m. Elizabeth d. of the sec. James Babcock. DAVID, Salem, d. prob. June 1662, for Samuel Archard of S. was order. to admin. in behalf of the country, so that perhaps he was only trans. EDMUND, Lynn, was first at Watertown, rem. a. 1643, not, as Lewis has it, 1640, came in the Elizabeth, from Ipswich 1634, aged 33, with w. Mary, 32; and two ch. John, 3 yrs. and Thomas, 9 mos. had James, b. 15 Jan. 1636; and Nathaniel, 25 Aug. 1639, b. at W. beside a ch. bur. 6 Nov. 1642, 10 days old, and had two more ch. b. at L. where he d. 1651. His will, of 18 Jan. pro. 20 Feb. 1651, names w. extrix. and s. John and Thomas. His wid. Mary d. 7 Sept. 1658. 

EDWARD, Barnstable, s. of the first George, b. perhaps in Eng. (yet Mr. Hamblen thinks him the s. recorded as Ephraim, and I think, tho. his authority is great, he must be wrong here, for the will names both); m. 9 May 1661, Hannah, d. of the first Henry Gobb of the same, common. call. Elder C. had Hannah, b. 24 Apr. 1662; Eleazer, b. 26 June 1664; John, 1 Jan. 1666; and Thomas, Mar. 1669. EZEKIEL, Boston, merch. B. of William of Farmington, by his sec. w.

He m. 18 Mar. 1702, Mary Breadon, had Mary, b. 21 Jan. 1703; and his w. d. next mo. He next m. 11 Oct. 1704, Abigail Kilcup, wh. I judge to have been wid. of Roger, had Abigail, 12 June 1706; William, 28 Nov. 1707, d. young; Sarah, 21 May 1710, prob. d. young; Elizabeth 22 Aug. 1712; Hannah, 14 Sept. 1714, prob. d. young; and Ezekiel, 15 Apr. 1717, H. C. 1735; and d. 14 Aug. 1755, above 80 yrs. old. Most of my details are deriv. from a very careful correpond. as mark. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 48. FRANCIS, Boston 1663, a boatman. 

GEORGE, Plymouth, and Scituate, where he join. the ch. 20 Sept. 1635, a clothier, was from East Greenwich, in Kent, bef. 1633, and rem. to Barnstable bef. 1641, had in Eng. m. Sarah Jenkins, by her had sev. ch. b. there, as Mary, wh. m. 14 Nov. 1643, John Bryant; prob. George; and Thomas; perhaps Edward; Jabez, wh. d. unm.; and James, but at S. had John, b. 2, bapt. 11 Mar. 1638; and at B. had Ephraim, 23, bapt. 25 July 1641; and Sarah, 2, bapt. 11 Feb. 1644; but we know not the date of his d. yet it was prob. aft. 1663, for his will was brot. forward 3 Mar. 1664. It names w. Mary, s. Ephraim, George, Thomas, James, Edward, John, and d. Sarah. John was k. by the Ind. unm. 26 Mar. 1676, under capt. Pierce. His d. Mary, wh. had m. 14 Nov. 1643 John Bryant of Scituate, and had seven ch. was d. seven yrs. bef. her f.; and Sarah m. 26 Dec. 1663, James Cobb, and, [[vol. 3, p. 86]] next, 23 Nov. 1698, Jonathan Sparrow. He had, in 1658, with Richard Foxwell, purchas. lds. at Scarborough, but both soon came back. 

GEORGE, Barnstable, 8. of the preced. b. in Eng. prob. m. Dec. 1654, Mary, d. of Bernard Lumbard, had George, b. Sept. 1655; Mary, 9 May 1657; Sarah; 12 Jan. 1660; Hannah, July 1662, a d. at 5 yrs.; Melatiah, 13 Jan. 1661; Bathshua, Oct. 1667; Jabez, 10 June 1670; Benjamin, 22 Nov. 1671; Jonathan, 25 July 1674; John, 1 Dec. 1676; and Nathan, 26 July 1678; and he d. 20 Mar. 1710. GEORGE, Casco, bef. 1640 had gr. of ld. Mr. Willis, in Vol. I. 37 and 174, conject. that he was s. of the first ment. George; but in my opin. he was older, and may have been s. of Thomas, tho. he d. without issue male, Willis thinks. He liv. and d. at Falmouth, had s. John, to wh. were gr. 100 acres as early as 1657; and Philip; beside four ds. Ann, wh. m. James Ross; Susanna, m. Thomas Cloice or Cloyse; Mary, b. at F. 1654, m. first, Thomas Skillings, sec. Jotham Lewis, and third, a Wilkins, was liv. at Salem 1732; and Hannah, m. James Darling. 

GEORGE, Barnstable, eldest s. of George the sec. of the same, by w. Elizabeth had Thankful, bapt. 16 Sept. 1683, and I find no more of him. ISAAC, Boston, perhaps s. of John of Charlestown, freem. 1690, m. 25 May 1680, Mary Davis, had Mary, b. May 1681; Isaac, 21 Aug. 1683; Joseph, 16 Nov. 1685; John, 25 Feb. 1688; Elizabeth 12 Feb. 1689; and Abraham, posthum. 9 June 1691; and he d. at Malden 3 Apr. preced. Yet it must be obs. that this Isaac, is by Lewis, in Hist. of L. 108, made s. of William of Roxbury; and the hist. asserts that his gr.f Nathan was gr,s. of this person. But Court rec. as brot. out in the invalua. Hist. of Watertown by Bond, p. 125, show the contra. ISRAEL, Westerly 1679, br. of Daniel, m. Jane, d. of sec. James Babcock, had Israel, b. 22 June 1695; Benjamin, 8 June 1697 ; Jane, 21 May 1700; and Ann, 13 July 1704. JABEZ, Barnstable, s. of George the sec. by w. Experience had John, bapt. in her right, 14 Nov. 1697, wh. prob. d. soon; and John, again, May 1698.

[[vol. 3, p. 87]] 1647; liv. on Malden side, there w. d. 10 Mar. 1649, and he m. 10 Apr. 1650, Mary Brown, perhaps d. of Abraham the first of Watertown, had Abraham, b. 10 Dec. 1650; Jonathan, 4 Jan. d. 10 Feb. 1652; Mary, Jan. 1653; Hannah; Isaac; and Trial, posthum.

He rem. in few yrs. to Boston, where his w. d. 12 July 1657. 

JOHN, New London 1648, common. noted as sen. because, beside other ch. of whose b. none is seen on rec. he had s. John; was freem. bef. 1669; and d. 8 Dec. 1676. JOHN, br. of George of Barnstable, was, very early, perhaps 1638, at Yarmouth, but not long contin. may be the same as the preced. JOHN, Lancaster, freem. 1665. JOHN, Falmouth, eldest s. of George of the same, took a deed from Cleves 1657. Willis, I. 68. In 1674 he kept an inn, and rem. aft. the begin. of Philip's war to the W. prob. was liv. 1683.

He may have been the freem. of 1684, but certainly not, as Farmer, foll the lead of Lewis in his Hist. gave it, 1646. JOHN, Boston, butcher, m. 22 Nov. 1659, Alice, wid. of Nathaniel Bishop, d. of James Mattock, who, in his will, refers to her, had Samuel, b. 12 Jan. 1662; Joseph, 4 Feb. 1663; and Benoni, 25 Jan. 1665. Ano. JOHN of Boston is call. mariner in 1669.

Martha, of William Brooking, and she next m. a Rendall, prob. had John, James, and Philip, nam. in their gr.f's will of 1 Nov. 1700.

JOSEPH, Swangey, by w. Mary, had Joseph, b. 6 Jan. 1672; Sibill, 18 Mar. 1674; and he was bur. 24 June 1675, prob. k. that day by the Ind. JOSEPH, New London 1666, may have been s. of John of the same, perhaps of Windsor 1676, and d. at Simsbury 1680, m. Elizabeth eldest d. of John Case of S. a. 1674, had Elizabeth b. 20 Mar. 1675; Joseph, 15 Mar. 1677; and John, posthum. 8 Jan. 1681. His wid. m. 1684, John Tuller. NATHANIEL, New London 1666, perhaps br. of the preced. NATHANIEL, Lynn, s. of Edmund, rem. I suppose, to Swansey, there by w.

His will was of 1 Nov. 1700. PHILIP, Falmouth 1669, s. of George of the same, was, in 1676, a soldier of Turner's comp. serv. on Conn. riv. PHILIP, Farmington, s. of the sec. William, propos. as freem. 1669, had 100 acres given 1675 by his gr.f William at F. with P.h. I suppose he liv. as both their names are sign. to memor. from Hadley, against imposts, some yrs. earlier, but liv. chief. at Hartford until he rem. to Fairfield. 

ROBERT, Newbury, came from Bristol to Salem, says Coffin, and d. aft. rem. to N. 4 Mar. 1644. His inv. is of 6 July 1644. I suppose he emb. in the Blessing at London, 1635, aged 28, with, perhaps, w. Elizabeth 22; and the custom-ho. list, that there may be no mistake, repeats the names in a few lines. ROBERT, Charlestown, spelt Luist in the rec. by w. Rebecca had Robert, bapt. 11 Feb. 1683; Thomas, 5 Apr. 1685; and David, 30 Jan. 1687; perhaps rem. to Boston. SAMUEL, Malden, perhaps s. of John, by w.

Felix d. 1671, at H. and he finally rem. a. 1675 to Farmington, there d. 1683, at gr. age. His only ch. was William, b. in Eng. and the mo. is call. Felix. 

WILLIAM, Roxbury, in absurd fam. tradit. by wh. Farmer was misled, oft. made the same as the foregoing, adm. freem. 18 May 1642, brot. it is said, John, b. 1 Nov. 1635; and Christopher, 1636, both in Eng. and the town rec. has Lydia, b. 25 Dec. 1640; and Josiah, 28 July 1641; so careless was that keeping, that we willingly miss the later ch. Perhaps he rem. to Boston 1644, and contin. to worship with apostle Eliot; at least we find at R. bapt. Isaac, 14 Apr. 1644; tho. a rec. is found of his b. 15 Apr.; Mary, 2 Aug. 1646; and Hannah, 18 Mar. 1649; and may be that propr. of Lancaster 1654, wh. d. 3 Dec. 1671.

Sometimes the terminat. is es, but it would be vain to attempt to disting. [[vol. 3, p. 90]] Thirteen of this name had been gr. at Harv. and thirty-four at other N. E. coll. in 1834.

LEY, HENRY, Boston, by w. Mary had Richard, b. 27 July 1657. JOSHUA, Boston, by w. Mary had Benjamin, b. 18 Feb. 1691.

It may reward investigat. whether that passeng. in the Susan and Ellen, from London 1635, aged 13, whose name appears Ann Lieford, were not a sis.

LILLY, EDWARD, Boston 1670, a cooper. GEORGE, Reading, m. 15 Nov. 1659, Hannah, but the rec. did not ins. surnames, had Hannah, b. 20 Oct. 1660; John, 5 Dec. 1662; beside others prob. and d. 1691.

SAMUEL, Hingham, came from the city of Norwich, with Francis Lawes, of Salem, a weaver, prob. his apprent. 1637, but the old Cushing MS. says, he was of old Hingham, aged 18, went, perhaps, on reach. his majority, to H. where liv. his br.

SAMUEL, Hingham, s. of the first Samuel, was a soldier in Philip's war, serv. in cavalry attach. to Johnson's comp. for Narraganset campaign, Dec. 1676, m. 29 Apr. 1687, Deborah, d. of William Hersey, had Deborah, b. 15 June 1689; Samuel, 1 Feb. 1691; Jedediah, 2 Oct 1692; Mary, 18 Sept. 1694; Rebecca, 11 Aug. 1697; Elisha, 3 Sept. 1699; Lydia, 14 Sept. 1701; Abigail, 11 Jan. 1704; and Susanna, 18 Apr. 1706.

C. 1802, Gov. of Mass. and of Enoch, Gov. of Maine, as thro. s. William of Solomon, the glad historian of his nat. town. STEPHEN, Hingham 1638, came that yr. from Wymondham, a town a. 9 ms. from Norwich, bring. mo. w. and s. Stephen, not in the Diligent, that arr. 10 Aug. of that yr. as Cushing, wh. was careful to note his fellow-passeng. told us; had Sarah, b. 22 Mar. 1642; and his w. wh. name is unkn. d. next mo.; the d. d. 4 Nov. 1649, and he d. 11 Oct. 1658. His will, made 3 days bef. ment. his mo. Joan, Susanna, d. of his br. Thomas, and gives part of his est. to mo. but most to only ch. STEPHEN, Hingham, only s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. Feb. 1660, Elizabeth d. of Matthew Hawke, had Elizabeth b. 3 Nov. 1660; Mary, 27 Dec. 1662; Stephen, 9 Nov. 1665; David, 22 Sept. 1668, bef. ment.; Bethia, 29 Oct. 1670; Abigail, 7 Apr. 1673; Margaret, 30 June 1677, and James, 26 Oct. 1681, bef. ment. was freem. 1680, and d. 17 Sept. 1692, and his wid. d. 4 Nov. 1713. Elizabeth m. 4 Jan. 1693, Ephraim Marsh; Mary m. 11 Jan. 1688, Enoch Whiton; Bethia m. 16 Apr. 1701, John Lane; and of the other two as. no rec. of m. or d. is found. 

STEPHEN, Hingham, s. of the preced. never m. was ens. town clk. and d. 27 Dec. 1717; THOMAS, Hingham 1636, the weaver, elder br. of the first Samuel, was two yrs. or more at Watertown and Charlestown, having, says the Cushing MS. come with Nicholas Jacob, a relat. in 1633; had gr. of lds. in 1635, and house lot gr. 3 July 1636, so that he would be judged a first sett. with Hobart, and may have been the freem. of MR. 1638 or of 18 May 1642. His first w. Susanna d. Mar. 1641, and he had ano. w. Mary, who, by one report, prob. erron. outliv. him, and d. 2 Sept. 1675, leav. no ch. His will is without date, but well pro. provides for w. gives small legacy to br. Samuel, larger to Samuel, and Daniel, s. of that br. and smaller to ea. of the other liv. cb. exc. Rebecca, latest b. wh. may render prob. that it was made bef. she was b. 

THOMAS, Hingham, the miller, prob. came 1635, certain. had [[vol. 3, p. 94]] house lot 3 July 1636, brot. sev. ch. perhaps two or three. rem. a. 1652 to Taunton, where he took sec. w. 10 Dec. 1665, Elizabeth Streete, prob. wid. of Francis. He, in his will of 28 Aug. 1683, call. hims. "eighty yrs. or thereabout," pro. 6 Mar. foll. he ment. with these ch. of former w. Thomas, John, Samuel, Sarah, Mary, and s.-in-law Joseph Willis, perhaps h. of Sarah, and Sarah's s. Thomas. In Geneal. Reg. VI. 188, it is print. Linton. 

THOMAS, Hingham, the cooper, s. of Thomas, in O. E. had gr. in the town 1636, more likely, in my judgment, than either of the preced. to have been the freem. of Mar. 1638, had, bef. com. from Eng. m. 1630, a a. of Andrew Lane, had two ch. of wh. one d. and the other, Sarah, was brot. and d. soon aft. arr. and here had Thomas, bapt. 6 May 1638; Joseph, 22 Nov. 1640, bef. ment.; Benjamin, 7 May 1643, bef. ment.; Deborah, 3 Aug. 1645; and Sarah, 6 Oct. 1650, d. young. His w. wh. name is unkn. d. 13 Feb. 1683, and he d. 28 Sept. 1691. His will, of 13 July 1688, names the four liv. ch. Deborah m. 13 June 1678, as sec. w. Samuel Thaxter. Tradit. brings him from West of Eng. where he left br. John This may seem not improb. if we substitute E. for W. The name belong. to Co. Norf'k. or the adj. Co. Lincoln. 

THOMAS, Hingham 1638, the husbandman, br. of the first Stephen, prob. younger, had gr. of ld. 1638, came, says the Cushing MS. in 1638 from Wymondham, Co. Norf'k. with Jeremiah Moore, perhaps is the freem. of 18 May 1642, had w. Margaret, d. of Richard Langer, and ch. Caleb, bapt. 8 Oct. 1643, d. soon; Joshua and Caleb, tw. 2 Mar. 1645, of wh. the latter, I think, liv. not long; Susanna; Mary, b. 10, bapt. 23 Apr. 1648; Sarah, 29 Sept. bapt. 6 Oct. 1650; Thomas, 26 Dec. 1652; Elizabeth and Ruth, b. 19 Nov. 1664. He d. 16 Aug. 1692; but his will, of 24 May 1681, names the w. and eight ch. His d. Susanna m. 16 May 1666, to Joseph Barstow of Scituate; Mary m. 5 Jan. 1675, Francis Barker of Duxbury; Sarah m. 6 May 1675, Thomas Marsh; Elizabeth m. 23 Jan. 1678, Daniel Lincoln, bef. ment.; and Ruth, m. Jan. 1685, Samuel Gill. It seems very curious, that at our Hingham, within the first three yrs. of its sett. should be found four heads of fams. nam. Thomas Lincoln, and yet at Hingham in O. E. where this fam. name was quite freq. not one Thomas occurs in the rec. from 1600 to 1663 incl. neither as f. nor s. among ms. 15 in number, of wh. 8 were of males, nor among 28 bur. nor among, 62 bapt. Clearly the other parishes of Co. Norf'k. had the name of bapt. in greater abund. for males of this surname. 

THOMAS, Taunton, s. of Thomas, the miller, of Hingham, b. in Eng. had Mary, b. 12 May 1652; Sarah, 25 Sept. 1654; Thomas, 21 Apr. 1656; Samuel, 16 Mar 1658; Jonah, 7 July 1660; Hannah, 15 Mar. 1663; d. Contant, 16 May 1665; Elizabeth 24 Apr. 1669; and Mercy, 3 Apr. 1670. Constant m. 13 July 1687, William Briggs; Hannah m. 23 Dec. 1689, [[vol. 3, p. 95]] Daniel Owen; and Elizabeth m. 17 Oct. 1693, William Briggs, as sec. w. THOMAS, Hingham, eldest s. of Thomas, the cooper, was a carpenter, m. 18 Feb. 1663, Mary, d. of Thomas Chubbuck, wh. d. 12 June 1690, without ch. it is thot. He m. 13 Nov. foll. Lydia, d. of Rev. Peter Hobart, had Lydia, b. 29 Sept. 1691, d. young; Mary, 24 June 1693, d. in few wks.; Thomas, 3 July 1695; Lydia, again, 16 Oct. 1696, d. young; and Josiah, 10 Apr. 1699, wh. was a deac. and liv. to 23 Jan. 1774. He was freem. prob. 1672, a lieut. and capt. d. 28 Nov. 1708; and in his will of 18 Dec. 1700, names only w. Lydia and her two s. 

THOMAS, Hingham, youngest s. of Thomas, the husbandman, m. 6 Jan. 1685, Sarah, d. of James Lewis of Barnstable, had Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1685; Susanna, 19 Sept. 1688; Thomas, 30 Aug. 1692, d. at 3 mos.; Ebenezer, 9 Apr. 1694; and Mary; and d. 28 Sept. 1698; and his wid. m. 20 Feb. foll. Robert Waterman. THOMAS, Taunton, eldest s. of Thomas of the same, m. 14 Nov. 1689, Susanna Smith; but my kn. ends here. WILLIAM, Roxbury, a soldier in the comp. of his townsman, the brave capt. Johnson, was wound. 19 Dec. 1675, in the gr. Narraganset battle, and d. soon aft. Twenty of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. two at Yale, and four at other coll. of N. E.
