MANCHESTER, STEPHEN, Portsmouth, R. I. m. 13 Sept. 1684, Elizabeth d. of Gershom Wodell.

MANLY, RALPH, Charlestown, prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop and d. Sept. 1630. WILLIAM, Weymouth, by w. Rebecca had Sarah, b. 5 Oct. 1675; in Mar. foll. was soldier in Turner's comp. outliv. the camp, and had Thomas, 11 July 1680; and by w. Sarah had Rebecca, 6 Mar. 1687; perhaps he rem. to Boston, and was freem. of 1690.

MANN, ABRAHAM, Providence 1676, was one of the few that did not rem. in Philip's war. He took o. of alleg. May 1671. FRANCIS, Providence, of wh. I can only learn, that his d. Mary m. 6 Apr. 1673, John Lapham. JAMES, Newport, freem. 1663. JOHN, Boston 1670, a baker, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 30 June 1672. JOSIAH, a soldier prob. from Boston or Charlestown, under capt. Turner, 1676, at Hadley. [[vol. 3, p. 146]]

NATHANIEL, Boston 1670, perhaps br. of Josiah, by w. Deborah had William, b. 19 Feb. 1672. RICHARD, Scituate 1646, by Deane, 309, was reckon. a youth in Elder Brewster's fam. who could claim to have come in the Mayflower, 1620; but I reject that supposition, for the person who had share with Brewster's lot in the div. of cattle, 1627, was not Mann, but More. See Davis's Morton, 382; and Bradford gives the Mayflower Richard More to be count. with the other heads, to Brewster, six in number, at the div. of lds. He had Nathaniel, b. 1646, and d. a. 1656; Thomas, 15 Aug. 1650; Richard, 1652; and Josiah, 1654. The last was prob. that soldier of wh. no more is kn. Of Nathaniel, Deane says he liv. in S. left no fam. gave est. 1680, to his brs. Thomas and Richard, yet refers to his Appx. II. in wh. no more is found. But he may have been short time of Boston. Thomas saw hard fighting and was badly wound. in the Rehoboth day, when Pierce was ambushed; but liv. to have four s. and three ds. of wh. descend. are yet seen. Richard had three s. and four ds. I can feel no doubt, that this Mann should be More, or Moore. See that name. 

SAMUEL, Dedham 1642. SAMUEL, Wrentham, only s. of William, had engag. to keep the sch. in Dedham one yr. for £20- "to be pd. in corn at the current price," and contin. sev. yrs. in that honora. employm. m. 13 by rec. or 19 May 1673, Esther, d. of Robert Ware of Dedham, wh. d. 3 Sept. 1784; and was freem. 1678; ord. 13 Apr. 1692, in the place former. part of D. where he had preach. many yrs. and d. 22 May 1719. His ch. by the Wrentham rec. were Mary, b. 7 Apr. 1674; Samuel, 8 Aug. 1675; Theodore, 8 Feb. 1681; Thomas, 24 Oct. 1682; Hannah, 12 June 1685; Beriah, 30 Mar 1687; Pelatiah, 2 Apr. 1689; Margaret, 21 Dec. 1691; and Esther, 26 June 1696; beside wh. were Nathaniel, and William, b. aft. the sett. was brok. up by Philip's war, and bef. his return, i. e. Mar. 1676 and Aug. 1680. All these six s. and five ds. were m. Of this fam. most have writ. but a single n in the name. 

THOMAS, Rehoboth, had w. Rachel, wh. d. June 1676, and a ch. at the same time. He m. 9 Apr. 1678, Mary Wheaton, had Rachel, b. 15 Apr. 1679; Mary, 11 Jan. 1681; Bethia, 12 Mar. prob. 1683. WILLIAM, Cambridge 1634-52, came, it is said, from Kent, b. 1607, youngest of eleven ch. m. 1643, Mary Jarrad, or perhaps Garrard, had share in the Shawshin div. 1652, but possib. was of Providence 1641, a Farmer has it; yet he could not long have cont. there. He had by first w. Samuel, bef. ment. b. 6 July 1647, H. C. 1665; and m. 11 June 1667, sec. or third w. Alice Teel, and d. 7 Mar. 1662. In his will of 10 Dec. preced. nam. no ch. but Samuel. Six of this name had, in 1819, been gr. at Harv. and nine at other N. E. coll.

MANNERING, EDWARD, Scarborough 1663. JOSEPH, a passeng. in [[vol. 3, p. 147]] the William and Francis from London, 1632, emb. in Mar. and reach. Boston 5 June, with Edward Winslow; but no connex. with him is kn. nor indeed is this name heard of for many yrs. except by judgm. of Court, 4 Mar. 1634, it was found that he had not paid £5. on acco. of wh. Joseph Twitchell had been charg. Several whom we know to have been on board that ship could not have obt. leave from governm. OLIVER, Salem, had Elizabeth b. 10 May 1685; and Sarah, 25 July 1687.

MANNING, DENNIS, Nantucket, m. 1678, Catharine Innis, but wh. she was, is unkn. had Betty, b. 10 July 1679; James, 20 Jan. 1681; David, 2 Apr. 1683; Dorcas, wh. m. the sec. Nathaniel Barnard; William; Benjamin; Eunice, wh. m. Thomas Newcomb; Dinah, wh. m. 1717, William Stubbs; and Rebecca, wh. m. 1719, Joseph Mott of R. I. GEORGE, Boston 1653, shoemaker, perhaps an orig. propr. 1640, of Sudbury, m. 15 July 1653, Mary Harraden; and ano. rec. tells that he m. 13 Mar. 1655, Hannah, wid. of William Blanchard, d. of James Everill, had George, b. 24 Nov. 1655; Elizabeth 19 Mar. 1657, d. young; Mary, 15 Dec. 1659, d. young; Elizabeth again, 13 Oct. 1661; James, 6 Mar. 1663; Hannah, 20 Apr. 1665; Mary, again, 3 Nov. 1666; Sarah, 19 Mar. 1668; John, 11 Oct. 1671; and Joseph, 6 Nov. 1674. 

JACOB, Salem, s. of Return. was dept. marshal in the doleful service of 1692. JOHN, Boston, merch. ar. co. 1640, by w. Abigail, wh. d. 25 June 1644, had John, b. 25 May 1643; and Mary, 3 June 1644; and by w. Ann, d. of Richard Parker, wh. join. our ch. 15 May 1647, had Ann, b. 12, bapt. 21 Mar. 1652 (tho. the same rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 250, by repetit. in ano. line on the same page, adds a day); and Ephraim, 10 Aug. 1655. Ann m. 1669, John Sandys. A JOHN, at Ipswich so early as 1634, I kn. no more of. But there the name was much diffus. and so, I believe, it was at Norwich, Eng. whence came many puritans to our country. Of ano. JOHN, in Maine, inv. of £115. was ret. 5 Oct. 1674. NICHOLAS, Ipswich, prob. s. of Richard, m. 23 June 1663, Elizabeth wid. of Robert Gray of Salem, had Thomas, b. 2 May 1664, d. in few mos.; Nicholas, 15 Sept. 1665, d. under 2 yrs.; Margaret, 25 Feb. 1667, d. in few days; and John, 28 May 1668.

Elizabeth was in 1688 appoint. by Andros a Judge in the remotest E. part of his jurisdict. near Eennebec, and as one of his adher. was next yr. imprison. Willis, I. 187. 

RETURN, Boston, m. at Hingham, Dec. 1664, Sarah Hohart, prob. d. of Edmund the sec. of the same, had d. Mary rememb. in the will of Hobart, but whence he came I find not. At Boston he had Sarah, b. 7 Apr. 1669; and Rebecca, 21 Sept. 1670, and, perhaps, rem. RICHARD, Ipswich, by w.

Descend. are num. 

SAMUEL, Billerica, s. of the sec. William, freem. 1670, was selectman 1680, rep. 1695 and 6, town clk. 6 yrs. d. 22 Feb. 1711, aged 66. THOMAS, Ipswich 1636, perhaps elder br. of Richard, d. a 1668, aged 74. THOMAS, Swansey, m. 28 Oct. 1674, Rachel Bliss, perhaps d. of Jonathan. THOMAS, a soldier of Ipswich, perhaps s. of Thomas tbe first, or more prob. gr.s. k. with the "flower of Essex" under Lothrop, 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook, Deerfield. WILLIAM, Cambridge 1634, freem. 13 May 1640, brot. from Eng. William, and prob. other ch. perhaps Timothy, wh. d. 8 Nov. 1653, was one. [[vol. 3, p. 148]]

His w. Susanna was bur. 16 Oct. 1650, but when he d. is not ascert. WILLIAM, Cambridge, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. freem. 10 May 1643, by w. Dorothy had Hannah, b. 21 June 1642; Samuel, 21 July 1644, bef. ment.; Sarah, 28 Jan. 1646; Abigail, 15 Jan. 1648, d. at 4 mos.; John, 31 Mar. 1650, wh. d. of smallpox, 25 Nov. 1678; and Mary. He was selectman 1667, and many yrs. aft. sent, 1670, to Eng. to induce Uriah Oakes to come over to be presid. of the coll. says tradit. with more wildness than might have been expect. of Cambridge people, wh. kn. that vacancy did not occur by d. of Chauncy until 1672. The gr.stone that tells his d. 14 Mar. 1691, aged 76 yrs. may be truer, but I suspect some exagger. in that for his w. Dorothy, when it makes her 80 yrs. at the d. 26 July 1692. Sarah m. 11 Apr. 1671, Joseph Bull of Hartford; and Mary m. 21 Oct. 1674, Rev. William Adams of Dedham. In the coll. of N. E. and N. J. fourteen had been gr. 1834, of wh. ten were of Harv. 

WILLIAM, Nantucket, s. of Dennis, m. 1726, Hannah, d. of Shubael Gorham of Barnstable, had David, and Phebe, and d. 20 July 1730. From Ormsby, in Co. Norfk. came, in 1637, aged 17, Ann M. as serv. of Henry Dow, says the rec. of his declar. bef. embar. as found at Westminster Hall.

MANSFIELD, ANDREW, Lynn 1639, had been at Boston 1636, came from Exeter, in Devon, it is said, bring. s. Andrew, b. 1630; and, I suppose, w. Elizabeth d. of Rev. William Walton, wh. d. 8 Sept. 1673, aged above 80 yrs. by wh. prob. he had other ch. as, perhaps, ea. of these foll. Joseph; John, wh. d. 16 Oct. 1671; Robert, wh. d. 16 Dec. 1666; Samuel; and Elizabeth This last m. 10 June 1675, Joshua Witt; and he d. 1692, in 94th yr. The will of his w. of 20 Apr. 1667, pro. 26 Nov. 1673, is abstract. in Essex Inst. Hist. Coll. II. 125. ANDREW, Lynn, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. was rep. 1680-3, Lewis says; by w. Bethia had Bethia, b. 7 Apr. 1658, d. at 14 yrs.; Mary, 7 Mar. 1660, d. next yr.; Lydia, 15 Aug. 1662; Deborah, 1 Jan. 1667; and Daniel, 9 June 1669. He had sec. w. 4 June 1673, Mary, wid. of John Neale, d. of Francis Lawes, wh. d. 27 June 1681; and he m. 10 Jan. 1682, Elizabeth Conant. 

ANDREW, Lynn, freem. 1691, may have been s. of the preced. or of Robert. DANIEL, Lynn, s. of the sec. Andrew, was freem. 1691. EBENEZER, New Haven, s. of Joseph, m. 20 Apr. 1710, Hannah Bassett, but Mr. Porter names no issue. JAPHET, New Haven, youngest s. of Joseph, m. 14 Jan. 1703, Hannah Bradlee. JOHN, Boston, s. of Sir John, came in the Regard, 1634, sent out by charity, with his fam. as Winthrop 1. 150, tells. His wid. mo. d. that yr. in London, at the ho. of Robert Keayne, whose w. was a d. and Elizabeth the w. of Rev. John Wilson was ano. but he seems to have done little here beside worrying his brs. Wilson and Keayne, in the will of the last, most curious details being relat. for wh. see Geneal. Reg. VI. 156. Yet E. gave something to the two ch. and their f. seems to have held on a long time, dying at Charlestown 1674. JOHN, Lancaster, s. of the preced. bec. a propr. in 1654, had 500 acres giv. by his Aunt Ann Keayne, as Rev. John Wilson of Medfield testif. 11 Feb. 1675. 

JOHN, Lynn, perhaps younger br. of the first Andrew, came in the Susan and [[vol. 3, p. 149]] Ellen, from London, 1635, aged 34, freem. 1643, may be the one wh. d. 1671, above designa. as perhaps s. of Andrew. JOHN, Charlestown 1658. JOHN, Hingham, freem. 1684, in his will of 19 Feb. 1689, pro. 20 Aug. foll. names only w. Elizabeth wh. was, perhaps, d. of Joseph Farnsworth of Dorchester, and two ch. Mary, and John, b. 15 Nov. 1656, wh. had m. Sarah Neal. JOHN, Windsor, m. 13 Dec. 1683, Sarah, d. of Samuel Phelps, had John, b. 13 Sept. 1684, d. at 6 yrs.; Sarah, 5 Jan. 1686; Samuel, 16 Sept. 1687; Mary, 16 Aug. 1689, and, perhaps, more. 

JONATHAN, New Haven, youngest ch. of Moses the first, m. 1 June 1708, Hannah, d. of the sec. John Alling, had a fam. but their names are unkn. JOSEPH, Lynn, s. of the first Andrew, prob. b. in Eng. by w. Elizabeth had Joseph, b. 20 Mar. 1661, and may have had other ch. earlier. She d. 25 Feb. 1662; and he was call. sen. as Felt notes from the rec. when his d. Deborah d. 14 Feb. 1678. JOSEPH, New Haven, s. of Richard, prob. b. in Eng. had Mary, b. 6 Apr. 1658; Martha, 18 Apr. 1660; Mercy, 26 July 1662; Silence, 24 Oct. 1664; Elizabeth, 20 Sept. 1666; Comfort, 6 Dec. 1668; John, 8 Apr. 1671, d. at 19 yrs.; Joseph, 27 Nov. 1673; Ebenezer, 6 Feb. 1678; and Japhet, 8 July 1681; and d. 15 Nov. 1692. His wid. Mary d. 1701; is in the list of freem. 1669, and propr. in 1685; in the Index of Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. is nam. incorrect, wh. is very seldom seen. 

JOSEPH, Lynn, s. of the first Joseph, m. 1 Apr. 1678, Elizabeth d. of Isaac Williams of Salem, had Elizabeth b. 6 Feb. 1679; tw. b. 25 Oct. 1680, d. soon; Joseph, 18 Aug. 1681; and Sarah, 22 Jan. 1684; freem. 1691. MOSES, New Haven, s. of Richard, b. in Eng. was a very valua. man in town business 1673, lieut. and capt. in the Ind. v ar, rep. 1676 and 7, a propr. in 1685, m. 10 May 1664, Mercy, d. of John Glover, had Abigail, b. 7 Feb. 1665; Mercy, 2 Apr. 1667; Hannah, 14 Mar. 1669; Samuel, 31 Dec. 1671, H. C. 1690, wh. kept the gr. school at New Haven some yrs. bec. a merch. and d. 1701, perhaps bef. his f. perhaps Moses, 15 Aug. 1674; Sarah, 14 June 1677; Richard, 20 July 1680, d. at 1 yr.; Bathshua, 1 Jan. 1683; and Jonathan, 15 Feb. 1686. He m. sec. w. 8 Nov. 1702, Margaret Prout, and had third w. Abigail, d. of the first Thomas Yale, and d. 3 Oct. 1703. His wid. d. 28 Feb. 1708. 

MOSES, New Haven, s. of the preced. was a mariner, had a fam. Mr. Porter tells me, but gives no names. PAUL, Salem, sign. the petitn. against imposts 1668. By w. Damaris he had Damaris, b. 12 Aug. 1658; Ruth, 4 Nov. 1662; Paul, 4 Aug. 1664; Elias, 29 Mar. 1667, wh. d. in 4 mos.; Abigail, 28 June 1668; and Rebecca, 5 Mar. 1674. RICHARD, New Haven 1643, perhaps earlier, d. 10 Jan. 1655, leav. wid. Gilian, wh. m. Alexander Field, and ch. Moses, and Joseph, bef. ment. ROBERT, Lynn 1642, may have been s. of the first Andrew, or more prob. his br. b. in Eng. wh. had w. Elizabeth s. Andrew, and d. 1666. SAMUEL, Lynn, perhaps s. of the first Andrew, m. 3 Mar. 1674, Sarah Barsham, had Andrew, b. 4 Jan. 1675; Sarah, 6 Nov. 1676; and Bethia, 13 Mar. and he d. 10 Apr. foll. 

SAMUEL, Springfield, rep. 1680, 3, and 4. THOMAS, Lynn 1642. One of this fam. name came in the Regard 1634, who was from Exeter, Eng. and was not found to be a desirab. inhab. as ment. by Winthrop I. 150. In 1834 four had been gr. at Harv. six at Yale, and one at Amherst coll.

MANSIR, MANSER, or MANSUR, ROBERT, Charlestown 1678, a householder, of wh. I kn. no more.

MANSON, may or may not be found in N. E. bef. 1692, but as. yet he been sought in vain. Yet in the Blessing, from London, 1635, there brot. a Thomasin M. aged 14, wh. may hare foll. her f.

MANTON, EDWARD, Providence, s. of Shadrach of the same, m. 9 Dec. 1680, Elizabeth d. of John Thornton, freem. 1655, sw. alleg. May 1682. was the only s. of the three, that had a s. to perpet. the name, and of his three s. two d. infs. while his s. Daniel, at the age of 16, it is said, [[vol. 3, p. 150]] was the only male on this side of the sea with this surname. He left eight s. and three ds. all of wh. m. and had s. and ds. SHADRACH, Newport 1668, sw. alleg. 1 June of that yr. had, beside two other s. Edward; and Ann, NH. m. 18 Sept. 1682, John Keese.

MANWARING, NATHANIEL, is by Whitman call. of ar. co. 1644, but his resid. is unkn. OLIVER, New London 1664, in the tax list of 1666 his name is spell. Mannering, but the Col. Rec. of 1669, when he was offer. for freem. recovers his right; m. Elizabeth d. of Richard Raymond, but Miss Caulkins in ano. place calls her Hannah, had Hannah, Elizabeth Prudence, and Love, all bapt. 1671; Richard, 13 July 1673; Judith, Apr. 1676; Oliver, 2 Feb. 1679; Bathsheba, 9 May 1680; Ann, 18 June 1682; and Mercy, whose bapt. is not found, nor the b. of any one; but of the five preced. the last we may be content with dates of bapt. He d. 3 Nov. 1723, aged 90, when all those ch. were liv. and the eight ds. m. tho. Miss Caulkins gives not the names of any one exc. Love, wh. m. John Richards; and it is said Elizabeth m. 7 July 1686, Peter Harris. PHILIP, New Hampshire 1683.

MAPES, JOHN, aged 21, came from Ipswich in the Francis, 1634; but this name is so very rare in our country, that unless he d. in few yrs. we can hardly mistake in suppos. he was of L. I. where in 1662 goodman Mapes of Southold, was allow. to be made freem. of Conn. Perhaps he had first been of Salem, at least Dickinson, who was at the same time with him at Southold, had liv. at Salem some yrs. JOSEPH, Setauket, L. I. 1655, says Thompson's Hist. He may be the same or THOMAS, wh. is by Wood, in his Hist. placed at Southold 1640.

MARBLE, JOHN, Boston, by w. Judith, had John, b. 10 Nov. 1646. JOSEPH, Andover, m. 30 May 1671, Mary Faulkner, prob. d. of Edmund, had Deborah, wh. d. 30 June 1673; and prob. other ch. JOSEPH, Andover, perhaps s. of the preced. m. 23 Apr. 1695, Hannah Barnard, unless this m. were by the bef. ment. of a sec. w. NICHOLAS, Ipswich, 1654, Gloucester 1658, but not there sett. SAMUEL, Andover 1660, m. 26 Nov. 1675, Rebecca Andrews, prob. for sec. w. WILLIAM, Charlestown, or Malden, by w. Elizabeth had Mary, b. 10 Apr. 1642; but perhaps he rem. for Frothingham, in his list of 1658, does not include the name, nor do we see it among ch. memb. tho. he was freem. 1654.

MARCH, GEORGE, Newbury, brot. by Stephen Eent, in the Confidence, as a serv. from Southampton, 1638, aged 16, and he may be thot. to be that freem. 1666, at Boston, whose name in Geneal. Reg. is print. Marg, wh. ano. eye, almost as practiced as Paige's, made Marcy, for thus Farmer's correspondent instruct. him. GEORGE, Newbury, s. of Hugh, freem. 1683, m. 12 June 1672, Mary, d. of John Folsom of Exeter had George, b. 6 Oct. 1674; John, 18 Aug. 1676; Mary, 28 Aug. 1678, [[vol. 3, p. 151]] a. bef. 3 mos.; Stephen, 19 Sept. 1679, d. bef. 5 yrs.; James, 19 June 1681; Israel, 4 Apr. 1683; Sarah, 6 July 1683; Stephen, again, 16 Nov. 1687; Henry, 31 July 1794, perhaps; George, again, 24 Apr. 1698; and Jane, 8 May 1699; beside Hugh, prob. the eldest, a serg. k. by the Ind. at Pemaquid, 9 Sept. 1696, as Judge Sewall tells in Coffin's Newbury, 161.

JOHN, Charlestown 1638, prob. had w. Rebecca, and Edward, his s. d. 4 Oct. 1638; as did John, ano. ch. 2 May 1641; on 15 May of next yr. he join. to the ch. and on 18th was adm. freem. perhaps had more ch. was there a householder 1658. JOHN, Newbury, s. of the first Hugh, m. 1 Mar. 1679, Jemima True, had Judith, b. 21 Mar. 1682; Mary, 2 Apr. 1684; Joseph, 8 May 1687; John, 26 Sept. 1690; Abigail, 4 Sept. 1693; Hugh, 8 Jan. 1696; and Elizabeth 6 Sept. 1698; was a sturdy soldier, capt. in Phips's disastrous exped. against Quebec 1690, and more happy, as a major, in defence of Falmouth 1703.
