MARSH, ALEXANDER, Braintree, was freem. 1654, m. 19 Dec. 1655, I judge, Mary, d. of Gregory Belcher, was rep. under new chart. 1692; d. 7 Mar. 1698, aged a. 70 says gr.stone. His win of 19 Mar. 1697, pro. 31 Mar. 1698, ment. w. Bathsheba, s. John, ds. Rachel, Phebe, Ann, w. of Samuel French, beside gr.d. Mary French, s.-in-law Dependence French, and Samuel Bass. His s. John was then a minor, and f. I believe, of John, H. C. 1726. His wid. d. 8 Jan. 1723, aged a. 82, says the gr.stone at Dorchester. DANIEL, Hadley, s. of John of the same, m. 1676, Hannah, wid. of Samuel Crow, d. of William Lewis of Farmington; was freem. 1690, rep. under the new chart. in 1692, and oft. aft. d. 1725, aged 72. He had ch. but their respective names and dates are not given to me, other than of Joseph, H. C. 1705, wh. was min. of Braintree, and d. 8 Mar. 1726, and had Joseph, H. C. 1728, yet I find that Elisha, H. C. 1738, first min. of Westminster, and Perez, H. C. 1748, a physician of Dalton, were also his gr.ch. EPHRAIM, Hingham, s. of Thomas, m. Jan. 1682, Elizabeth Lincoln. 

EZEKIEL, Salem, s. of John of the same, sign. petitn. against imposts 1668. GEORGE, Hingham 1635, freem. 3 Mar. 1636, d. 2 July 1647, w. Elizabeth surv. His will, made tbe same day, provides for her, s. Thomas and Onesiphorus, ds. Elizabeth Turner, and Mary Page. Rev. John, of Wethersfield, H. C. 1761, S. T. D. was a descend. JOHN, Charlestown 1638, d. 1 Jan. 1666, in his will made that day, names w. Ann, and her gr.ch. Sarah Bicknor, s. Theophilus, and his s. John, d. Frances Buck, and her childr. JOHN, Salem, had gr. of ld. 1637, but tho. I find neither his nor his wife's name in Felt's valua. list of early ch. memb. yet I doubt not that he came in the Mary and John, 1634; and at S. his ch. bapt. were Zechary, 30 Apr. 1637; John, 9 May 1639; Ruth, 5 May 1641; Elizabeth 13 Sept. 1646; Ezekiel, 29 Oct. 1648; Bethia, 1 Sept. 1650; Samuel, 2 Oct. 1652; Susanna, b. one says, 23, but bapt. I think, 7 May 1654; Mary, 14 Sept. 1656; Jacob, b. 6 Aug. 1658, bapt. 10 Apr. 1669; and a d. 12 June 1664, whose name is not found. His will, of 20 Mar. 1674, pro. 26 Nov. foll. names w. Susanna, s. Zechary, Samuel, Jacob, Ezekiel, Benjamin, and d. Bethia. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the preced. m. 20 Mar. 1662, Sarah Young, d. perhaps of Christopher; had Sarah, b. 1 Dec. of unkn. yr.; and Ruth, Aug. 1668, and in the same mo. he d. at Barbados. On 2 Dec. 1669, his wid. took admin. 

JOHN, Hartford 1636, m. Ann, d. of Gov. John Webster, with him rem. 1659 or 60 to Hadley; but bef. rem. had Joseph, bapt. 24 Jan. 1647, Isaac, for Mr. Porter assures me, that in l. 3 of p. 197 of Geneal. Reg. XII, Boltwood, usual. so accur. is wrong, 15 July 1649; John, Samuel, Jonathan, Daniel, Hannah, and Grace. His w. d. 9 June 1662, and he m. 1664, Hepzibah, wid. of Richard Lyman of Northampton, d. of Thomas Ford, and rem. to N. and had Lydia. He d. 1688. Grace m. 16 Jan. 1672, Timothy Baker. By will, 1676, of his br. Joseph at Braintree, Co. Essex, est. was giv. to these ch. and obt. by suit at law, so that I presume he came from that part of Eng. 

JOHN, Hartford, eldest s. of the preced. m. 1666, Sarah, [[vol. 3, p. 155]] d. of Richard Lyman, and of the w. of his f. had John, b. 1668, and other ch. freem. 1670, d. 1727. JOHN, Boston 1672. JONATHAN, Milford 1649, rem. to Norwalk, one of the first sett. 1656, but not nam. aft. 1659, nor do we kn. whether he had w. or ch. JONATHAN, Hadley, br. of Daniel, m. 1676, Dorcas, wid. of Azariah Dickinson, had Jonathan, H. C. 1705, wh. bec. min. of Windsor; was freem. 1690, rep. 1701, d. 1730, aged 80. 

ONESIPHORUS, Hingham, s. of George, m. 6 Jan. 1655, Hannah Cutter, had ONESIPHORUS, b. 5 Nov. foll.; Hannah, 28 June 1657, was freem. 1672, and of Haverhill, I think, in 1690, at least of the same name one had there so call. his s. SAMUEL, New Haven, had Mary, b. 1648; Samuel, 12 Feb. 1650; Comfort, 22 Aug. 1652; all bapt. 20 Mar. 1653; Hannah, b. 22 July 1655, bapt. next mo. but not on the day ment. in the ch. rec.; Elizabeth 27 Dec. 1657, bapt. Feb. foll. on a day not truly giv. in ch. rec.; John, 2 May 1661, bapt. next Sunday, prob. for the careless ch. rec. gives a false date; Joseph, 1 Apr. 1663; and prob. rem. 

SAMUEL, Hatfield, br. of Daniel, m. 1667, Mary Allison; was freem. 1690, rep. 1705 and 6, d. 1728, leav. sev. ch. SAMUEL, Salem, s. of John, m. 14 Aug. 1679, Priscilla Tompkins, youngest ch. of John, had Susanna, b. 12 May 1680; John, 1 Sept. 1681; Thomas, 18 Sept. 1683; Sarah, 18 July 1685; and Margaret, 8 Apr. 1688. THOMAS, Hingham, s. of George, b. in Eng. m. 22 Mar. 1649, Sarah, d. of John Beal, and d. 2 Aug. 1658, leav. four ch. nam. in his will, Thomas; Sarah; Ephraim, b. 11 July 1656; and Mary, 22 Feb. 1658. His s. John, b. 20 Feb. 1654, prob. d. young. His wid. m. 1 Sept. 1662, Edmund Sheffield of Braintree. 

ZECHARY, Salem, s. of John of the same, m. 15 Aug. 1664, Mary Silsbee, d. of Henry, had John, b. 26 Sept. 1665; Mary, 8 Dec. 1666; Zechariah; Elizabeth; Jonathan, 14 Apr. 1672; and Ebenezer, 28 May 1674; was freem. 1680. Ten of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. eleven at Yale, eleven at Dart. and six at other N. E. coll.

MARSHALL, BENJAMIN, Ipswich, s. of the first Edmund, m. 1677, Prudence Woodward, had Edmund, Ezekiel, John, and four ds. d. 1716. CHRISTOPHER, Boston 1634, single man on join. the ch. late in Aug. of that yr. freem. 6 May 1633, was of Cotton's party in the great schism of 1637, but not disarm. as a dangerous heretic, so that he was, perhaps, a student of divinity, and certain. m. here, for his d. Ann was bapt. 13 May 1638, at our ch. adhered to Wheelwright at Exeter, and, with him, had dism. Jan. 1639, from our ch. prob. went home in 1640 or 1, and may be that man wh. Calamy says was partly educ. by our Rev. John Cotton, min. of Woodkirk, in Yorksh. and d. Feb. 1673, aged 59. DAVID, Windsor, s. of capt. Samuel, m. 9 Dec. 1686, Abigail Phelps, d. prob. of Samuel, had Abigail, b. 9 Jan. 1687; Hannah, 8 Dec. 1689; and David, 14 Apr. 1692, wh. d. at 33 yrs. 

EDMUND, Salem 1636, had there perhaps by w. Milicent, bapt. Naomi, 24 Jan. 1637; Ann, 15 Apr. 1638; Ruth, 3 May 1640; Sarah, 29 May 1642; Edmund, 16 June 1644; and Benjamin, b. 18, bapt. 27 Sept. 1646; was freem. 17 May 1637, liv. a. 1657, short time, at Gloucester, and rem. either to Ipswich or Newbury. EDMUND, Newbury, a shipwright, perhaps s. of the preced. had Edmund, b. 5 Oct. 1677; and [[vol. 3, p. 156]] John, 7 July 1682; but may have had older ch. bef. liv. at N. and possib. rem. to Suffield, there had Martha, 1685; and Elizabeth 1689; for certain it is, that one of the name there liv. and d. by his will, made in 1721, tho. not pro. until a long time aft. ment. these ch. with others, John, Benjamin, Mary, and Abigail. EDWARD, Warwick, by w. Mary had Edward, b. 10 Apr. 1658; John, 12 May 1660; Thomas, 1 Mar. 1663; Mary, 1 July 1666; Charles, 28 June 1668; and Martha, 16 Mar. 1670. 

EDWARD, Reading, by Mr. Eaton numb. among early sett. may be the same who was freem. at Malden, 1690. ELIAKIM, Boston, s. of Thomas the shoemaker, rem. to Stratford, and in 1665, sold his est. in B. but came back in few yrs. was of Lothrop's comp. in Philip's war, and k. at Bloody brook, 18 Sept. 1675. ELIAKIM, Windsor, fi. of capt. Samuel, m. 23 Aug. 1704, Sarah Liet of Guilford, if that be correct name in Stiles, 1693, had Dorothy, b. 1 Oct. 1705; Sarah, 27 June 1709, prob. d. soon; Sarah, again, 29 Jan. 1711; Mary, 14.Mar. 1715; and Eliakim, 15 July 1720, d. in few days. FRANCIS, Boston, master mariner, came in the Christian from London, 1635, aged 30, was liv. in 1659. JAMES, Windsor 1640, was from Exeter, in Devon, did not long cont. and, per haps, was the man, expect. in vain, to sett. at New Haven 1643, where his est. was val. at £1,000, his fam. of five heads, and his lot, transf. to Richard Mansfield. He sold his W. est. and may be that "rich merch." referred to in Winthrop I. 150. JOEL, Hartford 1682, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same. 

JOHN, Duxbury, had been of Leahorn, in Co. Kent, s. and heir of Sybil Marshall, by wh. descript. in Nov. 1631, he enters into contr. of m. with Mary, eldest d. of Rev. Ralph Partridge of Sutton, near Dover, to wh. and his br. Jervase P. citizen and cordwainer of Lond. as trust. he made convey. of est. in Co. Kent, as jointure of his w. if she outliv. him. This instr. with a bond in the penal sum of £200 to secure, &c. are rec. in Vol. III. of our Suf'k. Reg. of Deeds; but it is curious, that these docum. were not rec. here bef. Jan. 1661, some yrs. aft. a. of the Rev. Ralph, wh. in his will notices Robert and John, s. of his d. Mary M. JOHN, Providence 1639. JOHN, Boston, came, perhaps, in the Hopewell, capt. Babb, from London 1635, aged 14, by w. Sarah had John, b. 10 Dec. 1645; Thomas, 11 May 1656; Benjamin, 15 Feb. 1661; and Christopher, 18 Aug. 1664. JOHN, Billerica 1659, freem. 1683, had John, wh. was prob. the freem. at Billerica 1690. 

JOHN, Boston, a mariner from Barnstaple, Co. Devon, d. 1662; and his br. Thomas of Alwington, in Devon, took admin. of his est. in Eng. and in 1670, claim. and obt. the assets from John Sweete, who was admor. here. JOHN, Boston, call. ╥a Scottishman,╙ by w. Ruth had James, b. 29 Sept. 1659; Mary, b. 2 Jan. 1661; John, 2 Oct. 1664 (who was a mason of Braintree, kept that valua. Diary, formerly quoted oft. by Dr. T. M. Harris, [[vol. 3, p. 157]] who procured it for the Hist. Soc. as Fairfield's); Thomas, 6 Feb. 1666; Samuel, 14 July 1669; and Joseph, 14 Apr. 1672; was prob. the freem. of 1671, and d. Nov. 1672. His wid. Ruth m. Daniel Fairfield. JOHN, Braintree, s. of the preced. m. 12 May 1690, Mary, wid. of Jonathan Mills, d. of Edmund Sheffield, had Deborah. In the Diary, sub. 25 Dec. 1700, John writes "br. Thomas came to Boston to visit, aft. being abs. 17 yrs. and 1/2, tarried three wks. and ret." Whence he came for this visit to his nat. town, must be inq. but can hard. be answ. 

JOHN, Greenwich 1672. JOHN, Boston 1681-4, had an office under the Col. governm. with salary of £13. a yr. may have been freem. 1690, and d. 1694. JOHN, Windsor, youngest s. of capt. Samuel, by w. Abigail, wh. d. 29 Feb. 1698, had Abigail, b. 10 Dec. 1693, wh. d. in few wks.; and Hannah, 16 Apr. 1695. NOAH, Northampton, d. 15 Dec. 1691. PETER, Newbury, with prefix of respect, by w. Abigail had Thomas, b. 1 July 1689; and Ruth, 31 Dec. 1690; perhaps rem. to Boston. RICHARD, Taunton, m. 11 Feb. 1676, Esther Bell. ROBERT, Salem 1637, perhaps soon rem. to New Hampsh. as one of the name d. there in 1663. ROBERT, Plymouth, s. of John, gr.s. of Rev. Ralph Partridge, m. 1659, Mary, d. of John Barnes, had John; Robert, b. 15 Aug. 1663; and, perhaps, more. 

ROBERT, Boston 1668, merch. may be the same as the preced. or not. SAMUEL, Windsor, s. of Thomas the shoemaker of Boston, b. in Eng. was a tanner, by Stiles, in Hist. 692, made to own lot a dozen yrs. too early, and rep. in 1637, magistr. in 1638, when he never gain. either of those honors. Thomas was mistak. for this Samuel, wh. m. 6 May 1652, Mary, only ch. of David Wilton, not Wilson, as Geneal. Reg. V. 229 prints the name, had Samuel, b. 27 May 1653; Lydia, 13 Feb. 1656; Thomas, 23 Apr. 1659, d. soon; David, 24 July 1661; Thomas, again, 18 Feb. 1664; Mary, 8 May 1667, a. at nine yrs.; Eliakim, 10 July 1669; John, 10 Apr. 1672; and Elizabeth 27 Sept. 1674. He was freem. 1654, and in the war against Philip had short but most honor. serv. On 30 Nov. he was made a capt. in place of Benjamin Newbury, who was disabled, for the project. winter campaign, and on 19 Dec. 1675, in the great swamp fight, the hardest ever kn. in N. E. he was k. with many of the men under him His wid. d. 25 Aug. 1683. Lydia m. 24 Sept. 1676, Joseph Hawley of Northampton, where the oldest s. liv. while the others cont. at W. SAMUEL, Barnstable, by w. Sarah had Sarah, wh. d. 2 Aug. 1690, and f. and mo. had d. the mo. preced. 

SAMUEL, Charlestown, freem. 1690, says the rec. but Budington has not giv. his name among ch. memb. SAMUEL, Northampton, oldest s. of the brave capt. Samuel, m. 1675, Rebecca, d. of capt. Benjamin Newbury of Windsor, had Mary, b. 1676, d. soon; Samuel, 1679; Abigail, 1682; Sarah, 1685; Preserved, 1691; [[vol. 3, p. 158]] Lydia; and Mercy; was freem. 1690. SAMUEL, Boston 1681 had w. Ruth, freem. 1691. THOMAS, Dorchester 1634, freem. 6 May 1635, rem. it is thot. to Windsor; was rep. in Mar. and Apr. 1638; but no more is kn. with certainty. In Stiles, Hist. 698, he is said to m. 2 Mar. 1637, Mary Drake, wh. may have been d. of the first John; and we might suppose, from the same line, the same man m. 10 May 1660, Bethia Parsons, but the darkness is palpable, upon the same page, where he teach. that Thomas Maskell m. that day that same woman; and great distrust springs up, when we see him, p. 735, give the same woman, the same day, to Thomas Haskell. 

THOMAS, Boston, shoemaker, or ferryman, or both, call. widower on adm. to the ch. 31 Aug. 1634; freem. 4 Mar. 1635, had brot. from Eng. prob. s. Thomas and Samuel, ds. Sarah and Frances; and here by sec. w. Alice had Eliakim, b. 1 Mar. 1637, yet not bapt. until 15 Apr. 1638, no doubt on acco. of the antinom. quarrel in the ch. for acting with the major part of wh. in support of Wheelwright, he was requir. in Nov. 1637 to surrender his arms; but like most of the rest, thus abused, regain. high esteem, was selectman 1647-58, deac. and rep. 1650, and d. perhaps 1663. Frances m. 16 July 1652, Joseph Howe; and Sarah m. James Penniman. Great indulgence must be granted to investigat. a. this name, for ano. 

THOMAS, Boston 1643, a tailor, adm. of the ch. 17 Feb. 1644, had Thomas, bapt. 7 Jan. 1644, 5 days old; freem. in May of same yr. prob. and in June foll. was excom. I think he went to New Haven, aft. recov. in 1646, the favor of his former fellow-worshippers. THOMAS, Reading, came, prob. in the James from London 1635, aged 22, had Hannah, b. 7 June 1640; Samuel, 1 Sept. 1643, d. in one wk.; Abigail; Sarah, d. young; Thomas and Rebecca, tw. 20 Feb. 1648; Elizabeth; Sarah, again, 14 Feb. 1655; was freem. 1653, a lieut. and aft. very long deliberat. by me, is thot. to be that man of Lynn, always call. capt. who there had Joanna, 14 Sept. 1657; John, 14 Feb. 1660; Ruth, 14 Aug. 1662; and Mary, 25 May 1665; was of ar. co. 1640, and, perhaps, freem. 4 June 1641; certain. rep. 1659, 60, 3, 4, 7, and 8; d. 23 Dec. 1689; and his wid. Rebecca d. Aug. 1693. Hannah m. at Lynn, 17 June 1659, John Lewis; Sarah m. 15 July 1674, Ebenezer Stocker; and Mary m. 7 Apr. 1685, Edward Baker. Lewis seems to me, to have confus. f. and s. and to have misled Farmer. See p. 92 of Lewis, Ed. 2d. But for what John Dunton, in Life and Errors, says of this capt. hav. been one of Cromwell's soldiers, I am compell. to suspect, that the author mistook his jolly host, or that the veteran designedly impos. on him. THOMAS, Salem 1657. THOMAS, Middletown 1669, then offered as freem. may have had Thomas, Joel, and Mary, wh. m. 27 July 1665, John Cutlin, but it is not certain. 

THOMAS, d. at Northampton, [[vol. 3, p. 159]] 3 June 1663, but we are sure he was only a casual visitor. THOMAS, Andover, ought to have more told of him than is found in Farmer, that he d. Jan. 1708, almost 100 yrs. old, and that Joanna d. there in May foll. aged a 100. Perhaps it was his d. Mary wh. m. 6 July 1659, Robert Russell. THOMAS, Charlestown 1684, who gains this place, as does he of Salem 1637, on authority of Barry. 

THOMAS, Hartford, had sis. Mary, wh. m. John Catlin, but who was their f. is not ascert. He had Mary, b. 10 May 1670; John, 24 Feb. 1672; William, 21 Apr. 1674; Thomas, 3 Oct. 1676; Elizabeth 23 Oct. 1678; Sarah, 27 Mar. 1681; and Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1684; and d. 1692. His s. Thomas, a mariner, m. aft. the date of his will, 15 Feb. 1697, Mary Chantrel of Boston, spinster, and she had it pro. 19 Sept. 1700, as his wid. in wh. he gave memo. to his sis. Elizabeth spinster, and bro. Benjamin, and uncle John Catlin, all of Hartford, as he also styles hims. but all resid. to his beloved fr. M. C. THOMAS, Windsor, s. of capt. Samuel, m. 3 Mar. 1686, Mary Drake, d. prob. of John of the same, had Thomas, b. 14 Jan. 1687, d. young; Mary, 21 Feb. 1689; Samuel, 23 July 1691; Thomas, 6 Feb. 169-4; Rachel, 12 Apr. 1696; Catharine, 11 Apr. 1699; John, 3 Apr. 1701; Noah, 24 Apr. 1703, d. young; Daniel, 1705; Benjamin, 8 Aug. 1707, d. in few mos.; and Eunice, 3 May 1709. 

WILLIAM, Salem 1638, had then, says Felt, gr. of ld. He prob. came in the Abigail, 1636, from London, aged 40. WILLIAM, Charlestown, m. 8 Apr. 1666, Mary. d. of William Hilton, wh. d. 13 July 1678, aged a. 33, had William, and Mary, bapt. 4 Feb. 1672, she hav. join. the ch. a few days bef.; John, 20 Apr. 1673; Edward, 16 Apr. 1676; and; by sec. w. Lydia had Samuel, bapt. 31 Aug. 1684; Hannah, 25 Sept. 1687. Twelve of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at N. E. coll. half of them at Harv. three at Yale, and two at Dart.

MARSHCROFT, MASHCROFT, or MASCROFT, DANIEL, Roxbury, m. 23 May 1665, Mary, d. of John Gorton, prob. liv. in some other place, there had Elizabeth until d. of the f. of his u. aft. wh. I find in the rec. of R. Hannah, b. 6 May 1677; but perhaps he rem. again to some neighb. town, and had Samuel, brot. to bapt. with Mehitable, 3 Feb. 1684, when we see in rec. of b. only that of the d. 28 Feb. bef. He had also Mary, whose b. is not kn. but she d. 8 June 1688; and he d. perhaps bef. mid. age, and his w;a. d. 30 June 1703. Elizabeth m. at R. 18 Mar. 1700, Samuel Spencer; and Hannah m. 16 July 1701, Samuel Frost. But both the hs. were, I suppose, of ano. town.

MARSHFIELD, JOSIAH, Springfield, s. of Samuel, m. 22 Sept. 1686, Rachel, d. of Jonathan Gilbert, had six ch. b. at S. was freem. 1690, and aft. 1700 rem. to Hartford, there had a 8. b. 17 Mar. 1704. SAMUEL, Springfield, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. m. 18 Feb. 1652, Esther, d. [[vol. 3, p. 160]] of deac. Samuel Wright, had Mercy, b. 10 June 1653; Thomas, 6 Sept. 1654, both of wh. d. young; Sarah, 2 Feb. 1656; Samuel, 1659, a. young; Hannah, 1661; and Abilene, 2 Apr. 1664. His w. d. next day, and he m. 28 Dec. 1664, Catharine, wid. of Thomas Gilbert, d. of Samuel Chapin, and had been wid. first of Nathaniel Bliss, had Josiah, 29 Sept. 1665; Esther, 6 Sept. 1667; and Margaret, 3 Dec. 1670; was a propr. of Westfield 1666, but never liv. there; rep. 1680, 3, and 4, sheriff of the Co. and d. 8 May 1692. Sarah m. 1676, William Holton, jr.; Hannah m. Joseph Bedurtha; Abilene m. Thomas Gilbert; Esther m. Ephraim Colton; and Margaret m. Ebenezer Parsons. 

THOMAS, Windsor, may be thot. to have rem. with Warham, from Dorchester, but no certainty is reach. by inquir. unless the conject. be adopt. that he and first Thomas Marshall were the same person. The first that can positive. be learn. is by a letter from him, as Marshfield, to Samuel Wakeman, 6 May 1641, on p. 12 of our Vol. I. of Reg. of Deeds, strange as the place is, where an extr. is insert. by Gov. Winthrop and next yr. he withdrew from the country, as by Conn. Rec. 14 Oct. 1642, when the Court appoint. trustees to manage his est. for use of the creditors. Perhaps he was lost at sea, but at least no more was ever heard of him. His wid. and fam. rem. to Springfield, the ch. being Samuel, bef. ment.; Sarah, wh. m. Thomas Miller, and ano. d.

MARSTON, BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of John, m. 25 Nov. 1678, Abigail, d. prob. of Hilliard Verin, had Abigail, b. 28 Aug. foll. rep. 1696, was, I presume, f. of Benjamin, H. C. 1689, a man of distinct. EPHRAIM, Salem, s. of John, by w. Elizabeth had Ephraim, b. 24 May 1673; and Samuel, 2 Nov. 1676.
