William Turner's comp. 1676 at Hatfield, unless that soldier was his neph. s. of Joseph, as seems more prob. the same being in the list call. jr. d. 3 July 1691. HOPE, Barnstable, s. of Joseph, m. 17 Dec. 1696, Elizabeth d. prob. of Meletiah or of John Lothrop, had Benjamin, b. 18 Dec. 1697; and John, 3 Oct. 1699. 

JOHN, Scituate, the first min. was bred at Oxford, if the tradit. may be trusted, but prob. he was there only for a short time, preached, perhaps, at Egerton, in Kent, but certain. in London, where p. Laud caus. him to be impris. for it, for two yrs. in wh. time his w. d. by whom he had all his ch. exc. these by sec. w. Barnabas, bapt. at S. 6 June 1636; Abigail, wh. was bapt. at Barnstable, 3 Nov. 1639, the first in that ch.

He rem. to Barnstable with a large part of his flock, 11 Oct. 1639, and was held in honor to his d. 8 Nov. 1653. His will, made 10 Aug. bef. provides for w. the eldest s.

Emerson; and Abigail m. 7 Oct. 1657, James Clark. It is much regretted that no better acco. of this eminent confessor is obtaina. than a descend. of our days compil. in 2 Hist. Coll. I. 163, for in Mather nothing but his name in the list is giv. Ch. beside those already nam. were his sec. and third s. Samuel and Joseph, both brot. from Eng. 

JOHN, Barnstable, youngest s. of the preced. m. 3 Jan. 1672, at Plymouth, Mary Cole, junr. had John, b. 5 Aug. 1673; Mary, 27 Oct. 1675; Martha, 11 Nov. 1677; Elizabeth 16 Sept. 1679; James, 3 July 1681; Hannah, 13 Mar. 1683; Jonathan, 14 Nov. 1684; Barnabas, 22 Oct. 1686; Abigail, 23 Apr. bapt. 12 May 1689; and Experience, 7 Jan. bapt. 10 May 1692; and, perhaps, others; and he d. 17 Sept. 1727, in 85th yr. wh. proves that he was b. at Barnstable, unless fig. err. JOHN, Norwich, s. of Samuel the first, m. 15 Dec. 1669, Ruth, d. of Robert Royce. 

JOSEPH, Barnstable, s. of the first John, b. in [[vol. 3, p. 121]] London, perhaps, certain. in Eng. m. 11 Dec. 1650, Mary Ansell, had a ch. b. 19 Nov. 1651, bur. next day; Joseph, 3 Dec. 1662, d. at 24 yrs.; Mary, 22 Mar. 1654; Benjamin, 25 July 1657; Elizabeth 18 Sept. 1659; John, 28 Nov. 1661, d. at two yrs.; Samuel, 17 Mar. 1664; John, again, 7 Aug. 1666; Barnabas, 24 Feb. 1669; Hope, 15 July 1671; Thomas, 6 Jan. 1674; and Hannah, 23 Jan. 1676, d. at 5 yrs.

Samuel Packard the sec of the same; Mark perish. in the abortive expedit. of Phips 1690, prob. unm. but left a will, and his br. Edward d. without issue. Descend. are, it is said, num.

John, b. in Eng. one of the first sett. 1648, had m. at Barnstable, 28 Nov. 1644, as his f. tells, Elizabeth Scudder (sis. I suppose, of John), had John, bapt. at Boston, in right of his mo. 7 Dec. 1645. This discov. of the meaning of our ch. rec. wh. is strange. confused, aft. being by me some three or four yrs. given over, may encourage other explorers not to despair. He was of high esteem, rem. to Norwich 1668, had by w. Abigail, m. 1692 (wh. long outliv. him, and was 100 yrs. old 13 Jan. 1733, when in her room, at the ho. of her s. a sermon was preach.) no ch. of course, as she was sixty yrs. old when m.

THOMAS, Salem, freem. 14 May 1634, ar. co. 1645, lieut. and capt. rep. 1647, 53, and for Beverly 1672 and more yrs. where he was one of the found. of the ch. 1667; tho. no acc. is kn. of his w. or ch. my conject. makes him the same who was capt. in the fight at Bloody brook, 18 Sept. 1675, near Deerfield, k. by the Ind. with almost every man of his comp. call. "the flower of Essex." He left, perhaps, no ch. but his wid. [[vol. 3, p. 122]] Bethia d. of Daniel Rea, m. Joseph Grafton, as his sec. w. and next, m. deac. William Goodhue. THOMAS, Barnstable, eldest s. of Rev.

THOMAS, Barnstable, perhaps youngest s. of Joseph, unless Meletiah were his f. m. 23 Apr. 1697, Experience, d. of James Gorham, had a s. b. 10 Jan. 1638, d. next mo.; Deborah, 21 Apr. 1699; Mary, 4 Apr. 1701; James, 9 Aug. 1703; Thomas, 8 July 1705; Ansel, a. 1707; Joseph, 8 Dec. 1709; and Seth, Mar. 1712.

Yet other ch. he certain. had, as Sarah, wh. was to m. Jonathan Pulsifer in Apr. 1705, and ano. prob. Deborah, m. William Start.

LOVELAND, LOVEMAN, or LOVENAM, JOHN, Hartford, d. 1670, had w. and possib. ch. but no more is kn. Perhaps the fam. was perpet. at Glastonbury. ROBERT, Boston 1645, a witness then to deed from [[vol. 3, p. 123]] Bendall to Yale, may have rem. to Conn. was tax. at New London 1666; had four yrs. bef. a lawsuit with Bigot Eggleston of Windsor, about bides to be tanned; and a wid. Lovenam pursued a remedial action for trespass 1649. THOMAS, Wethersfield 1670, propos. for freem. that yr. had gr. of Id. 1673, perhaps ten yrs. aft. was of Hartford.

ROBERT, the freem. of Mass. 2 Sept. 1635, was, I think, then of Weymouth, and may have brot. John, the first above ment. and here had James. THOMAS, Ipswich 1647, currier, had been at Salem, perhaps in 1640, and was one of the selectmen at I. 1681. He came from Dublin 1639, had Alexander, b. 29 May 1657, d. at 2 yrs.; and Nathaniel, 28 Mar. 1658; was in 87th yr. of his age in 1707. Ano.

LOWGIE, or LOUGEE, John, came at the age of 16, in the Confidence of London, from Southampton 1638, with Grace, perhaps his sis. as serv. of John Stephens of Caversham, Oxfordsh. This name is preserv. in N. H. but the tradit. of the fam. derives it from a John, wh. came from the Isle of Jersey, seventy yrs. later.

LUCAR, MARK, Newport, among freem. 1655.

LUCAS, THOMAS, Plymouth, had John, b. 15 July 1656; Mary, 1 Mar. 1658; Benoni, 30 Oct. 1659; Samuel, 15 Sept. 1661; and Wil liam, 13 Jan. 1663; and was k. by the Ind. in Philip's war.

William, b. 26 Apr. 1667; John, 14 Oct. 1669; Mary, 5 Dec. 1672; Thomas, 1676; and Samuel, 15 Apr. 1682. A Mr. L. with prefix of respect was of New Haven 1643, with fam. of six, of wh. no more is heard. He prob. was one of the London associates who soon went home. A Lucas fam. of good est. in N. E. is of French descent, but came not early across the ocean, the first emigr. Augustus writ. of hims. "I m. 6 Jan. 1696, at St. Malo, in Bretagne."

LUCE, or LUCY, EXPERIENCE, perhaps of Edgartown, s. of Henry, m. Elizabeth d. of John Manter, had Zephaniah, b. 19 Feb. 1695; perhaps others, and d. 9 Jan. 1747. HENRY, Rehoboth 1668.

I can add nothing, but that he prob. rem. soon. The name abounds at the Vineyard. One LUCY, at Portsmouth, m. Mary, d. of William Brooking, and had Benjamin.

LUCKIS, or LUCKIN, WILLIAM, Marblehead 1648. Dana, Hist. Disc. 7.

LUDDEN, BENJAMIN, Weymouth, perhaps s. of James, by w. Eunice, d. I think, of John Holbrook, had d. Abia, b. 22 Dec. 1679; a s. whose name; is not kn. 13 Mar. 1681; and James, 9 Nov. 1689. JAMES, Weymouth, had Mary, b. 17 Dec. 1636; Sarah, 15 Nov. 1639, d. soon; Sarah, again, 5 June 1642; and John, so late as 13 Jan. 1657, by w. wh. may have been mo. of the others. Perhaps this man was the guide, in Oct. 1632, in honor of wh. Gov. Winthrop then travelling on foot from Plymouth to W. named a fording place in the North river. But the rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 171, calls him Laddon. In the note on p. 146 of the Hist. of Boston, attention is drawn to this name. Diligent as the writer is, his meaning may be misunderstood, when, aft. printing the name Ludham, at the foot, tho. in the text above, and in his [[vol. 3, p. 128]] Index, with me he adopts Luddam, yet, for change of sec. d to h he says, "I follow Prince, wh. follow. or used Winthrop in the original." As the last three words are print. in Italics it might seem, that an insinuation was intend. that I had not used or follow. the orig. A candid reader need not be distressed with such a suspicion, or presume that Mr. Drake believ. such a thing; for the venerable MS. in its original ink is accessib. and here more plain than often it appears. 

Winthrop wrote the name twice in the same short sentence, the first time, as it was print. by me, and the sec. as giv. in Webster's Ed. of 1790, with h aft. double dd. I was content with one form. Prince struck a mid. course, and the historian of Boston mioht learn from inspection, that the petty deviation from the orig. is seen in the scrupulous annalist, Hale's Ed. 407, and not in the annotator. of Winthrop Nobody would blame Winthrop for spelling the name two ways in one sentence, nor Prince for so slight variance from both; nor quarrel with Secr. Porter in transcrib. the copy that Webster print. for obeying the latter form of Winthrop's writing of the name with an h, nor with me for accepting the earlier form, without that letter. After inspection of the ancient MS. 

Mr. Drake would observe that his criticism was more than unnecessary; and his readers may excuse the error by inferring that instead of the open, bold Roman types, the natural overflow of his benignant impulses sought the more modest Italic character of censure. JOHN, Weymouth, wh. may have been s. of the preced. was a soldier on Conn. riv. under capt. Turner, in Mar. 1676. This name is not rare in the W. part of Mass.
