JOSEPH, Windsor, was not first at Dorchester perhaps, and the fam. tradit. that be came in the Mary and John is wrong; and more likely is it, tho. no evidence is found, that he accomp. Rev.

Ten of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at the N. E. coll. chief. at Yale.

LOPER, JAMES, Nantucket 1672, was the first person, says Macy's Hist. 28, that undertook the catching of whales there. See large extr. in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 311. But Felt, 11. 223, says, that his petitn. in 1688, for a patent for making the oil, asserts that he had been engaged 22 yrs.

LORD, JOHN, Hingham 1637, may be the man wh. a. at Watertown, 28 Apr. 1669, as Bond says. JOHN, Kittery, was of the gr. jury 1651. JOHN, Hartford, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. had first w. Rebecca, d. of Francis Bushnell of Guilford, wh. d. bef. 1647, and he m. 15 May 1648, Adrian Bayc, the surname prob. being (with profuse expense) Baysey; but he soon abandon. her, and in Sept. 1651, an order of the Court for secur. her apparel and a bed is found in Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 224. He had fled in debt to Virginia, and there wrote a letter to his creditor's neph. Richard, Feb. 1664, wh. is print. by Porter, p. 11, that serves to show him little changed; and he was nam. in his mo.'s will, 1670. JOHN, Watertown, d. 23 Apr. 1669. 

NATHAN, or NATHANIEL, Kittery, freem. 1652. In some rec. the name is Lawd. Farmer thot. him f. of that; capt. Samuel, the ancest. of sev. fam. of this name in the parts adjacent, of wh. one descend. is Rev. Nathan, Presid. of Dart. Coll. He m. 22 Nov. 1678, Martha, d. of the first Richard Tozer, had Martha, b. 14 Oct. foll.; Nathan, 13 May 1681; William, 20 Mar. 1683; Richard, 1 Mar. 1685; Judith, 29 Mar. 1687; Samuel, 14 June 1689; Mary, 29 July 1691; John, 18 Jan. 1693; Sarah, 28 Mar. 1696; Ann, 27 May 1697; and Abraham, 29 Oct. 1699. RICHARD, Cambridge 1632, s. of Thomas, who, perhaps, had sent him to look out the most desirable place for his friends, Gov. Haynes and Rev. Thomas Hooker, was freem. 4 Mar. 1635, but next yr. rem. with Hooker and his f. to Hartford, and Gov. Haynes soon foll. He was an orig. propr. and one of the earliest sett. capt. of the first troop in the Col. rep. 1657 to 61, and is nam. in the Union chart. of 1662, but bef. at was brot. over, d. at New London, 17 May 1662, in 51st yr. if the fig. well decyph. from the honorab. inscript. on a crumbling sandstone monu. 

See Caulkins's Hist. of New London. Porter says he d. 17 May 1662, but he says also, he was rep. to his d. and the latest yr. of his serv. as 61; and Goodwin makes his d. 10 May 1662, only 3 week diff. from Caulkins. His wid. was Sarah; the ch. Richard, b. 1636; Sarah, 1638; and Dorothy. He was the capt. relied on, in conjunct. with John Pyncheon, for secur. the persons of the regicides, Goffe and Whalley, that they might be brot. to justice in Eng. as Sir Thomas Temple wrote Secr. Morrice. His loyalty in this went beyond his judgment. See ss. Hist. Coll. VIII. 326. Sarah m. Joseph Haynes. 

RICHARD, Hartford, s. of the preced. m. 15 Apr. 1665, Mary, d. of Henry Smith of Springfield, had only Richard, b. 1 Feb. 1670, was rep. 1669, and oft. aft.; but was lost at sea Nov. 1685. His wid. in 1686 m. Dr. Thomas Hooker, and 17 May 1702. He left large est. and his s. m. 14 Jan. 1692, Abigail, d. as was said, of John Warren, and had ten ch. But great reach of [[vol. 3, p. 116]] investigat. leaves this m. well sett. ROBERT, Ipswich, freem. 3 Mar. 1636, rep. 1638, was clk. reg. of prob. of the courts, marshal, town clk. and reg. of deeds, Coffin thot.; m. Mary Waite, had Thomas, b. 1633; Robert, a. 1634; Samuel, 1640; Joseph, d. young; Nathaniel, d. 1658; and ds. Abigail, wh. m. 26 Feb. 1666, Jacob Foster; Hannah; and ano. wh. m. a Chandler; and he d. perhaps 12 May 1650. A wid. Catharine L. wh. had gr. of ld. at I. 1641, may have been his mo. and it was prob. his s. wh. d. 11 Nov. 1696. 

ROBERT, Boston, by w. Rebecca (d. I suppose, of Christopher Stanley by Susanna his w. who aft. m. William Phillips, and in her will calls Rebecca her d. in 1650), had Robert, b. Apr. 1651; Thomas, 18 May 1653, a. soon; and d. as Farmer thot. in Charlestown, 13 July 1678. Perhaps, as he came in the same sh. with Stanley and his w. he may be s. of the first Thomas by Porter call. sea capt. but we kn. nothing more of him, exc. that his mo. in her will, 1670, names him, unless he were that Robert of London, sued in 1675, by his neph. Richard. ROBERT, Salem 1692, a blacksmith, prob. s. of the first Robert. SAMUEL, Charlestown, perhaps s. of Robert of Ipswich, by w. Elizabeth had Joshua; Robert; and Elizabeth all bapt. 21 May 1676; Nathaniel, 30 May 1680; and his w. d. and he m. 16 Dec. 1684, Rebecca Eddington, d. 27 May 1696, in 56th yr. says the gr.stone. 

THOMAS, Hartford, came in the Elizabeth and Ann, 1635, from London, aged 50, with w. Dorothy, 46; and ch. Thomas, 16; Ann, 14; William, 12; John, 10; Robert, 9; Amie, 6; and Dorothy, 4; call. at the London custom-ho. a smith; but that may have been a godly deception. His eldest s. Richard, had been sent over three yrs. bef. and Thomas stopped at Boston, or Cambridge a yr. or more, but was an orig. propr. and among first sett. at H. Date of his a. is not ascert. but it was a. 1667. His wid. Dorothy, wh. a. 2 Aug. 1676, made her will 8 Feb. 1670, in wh. she names ch. of her dec. s. Thomas; a. Ann, w. of Thomas Stanton; William; John; Robert; Amie, w. of John Gilbert; gr.s. Richard, bef. ment.; and gr.ch. Hannah; Dorothy; and Margaret, ch. of d. Dorothy, w. of John Ingersoll. THOMAS, Wethersfield, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. was a physician and surg. for whose serv. the Gen. Ct. made liberal contr. in 1652, as in Trumbull, Col; Rec. 1. 234, appears, correct. stat. by Hinman, 47; but he mistakes in call. him the earliest on the rec. He was also employ. as sch.master; by w. Mary had Hannah, b. 1656; Mary, 1659; and prob. Sarah; beside Dorothy, the first b. 17 Aug. 1653. He d. a. 1661, and his wid. m. an Olmstead. 

THOMAS, Boston, m. 23 Sept. 1652, Hannah Thurston, but of h. or w. no more is kn. and it may be that he did not inhab. at Boston, but came here only to be m. by Bellingham. At least no issue is kn. THOMAS, Charlestown, d. of Robert of Ipswich, there liv. sev. yrs. and rem. with w. Alice, d. of Robert Rand of C. a. 1666, d. 4 June 1713, aged 80. His wid. Alice (by wh. he bad Nathaniel and Mary, tw. bapt. 4 Nov. 1666; Elizabeth 23 Aug. 1668; [[vol. 3, p. 117]] Joseph and Benjamin, tw. 25 Sept. 1670; Joseph, again, 23 June 1672, H. C. 1691; min. for 20 yrs. at Dorchester, S. C. aft. at Chatham, Mass.; and Abigail, 26 July 1674) d. 11 Aug. 1721, in her 88th yr. and s. Thomas d. 11 Nov. 1749, in 86th yr. THOMAS, Saybrook, s. of William, was propound. for freem. 1672. 

WILLIAM, Salem 1636, a cutler, said to have been b. a. 1590, freem. 6 Sept. 1639, was constable next yr. and rec. more liberal than tradit. absurd. says, 97th.; perhaps had w. Mary, d. 14 Jan. 1673, wild tradit. says in his 96th yr. WILLIAM, Salem 1670, a relat. not s. of the preced. had William, and Abigail, wh. m. 28 Dec. 1671 Samuel Gray. But ano. WILLIAM of Salem may be the kinsm. ment. in the will of first William; and this by w. Jane had William, b. 27 Feb. 1657; Elizabeth 26 Apr. 1659; Margaret, 21 Sept. 1660; Joseph, 1 Jan. 1663; Jeremiah, 2 Apr. 1667; Jane, May 1668; Rowland, 7 Apr. 1672, d. at two yrs. and Dinah, 4 Nov. 1674.

WILLIAM, Salem, s. of the sec. William of the same m. 7 Apr. 1680, Mary Moulton, perhaps d. of the first Robert of S. had William, b. 3 Feb. foll. and Abigail, 21 Dec. 1682.
