JOHN, Lancaster, perhaps of Boston, and freem. 1669, was rep. 1689 and 90, all. sen.
JOHN, Boston, by w. Lydia had Sarah, b. 19 July 1673; Hannah, 1675, d. soon; Hannah, again, 25 July 1676; John, Feb. 1678; Thomas, 26 Nov. 1679; Catharine, 5 Feb. 1681; Rachel, Feb. 1682; Francis, Nov. 1684; Catharine, again Mar. 1686, and Francis, again, 8 Apr. 1687. He was, perhaps, the freem. of 1671, and d. 1693. He was a brewer, had good est. of wh. admin. was. giv. to his w. Lydia, 13 July. JOHN, Lynn, m. 21 July 1673, Susanna, perhaps d. of Thomas Marshall, and Thomas, b. 20 Apr. 1674; John, 10 Feb. 1679; Richard, 22 Aug. 1680; and Susanna, 4 Mar. 1685. JOHN, Lancaster, jun. rep. 1689, perhaps s. of him who was rep. aft. JOHN, Lynn, freem. 1691. One other John, wh. came in the Susan and Ellen 1635, from London, aged 41, I am unable to dispose of. JONATHAN, Boston, youngest s. of Mrs. Ann, wid. of William Hibbins, the Assit. was, I infer, only tempo. resid. here, for the will of his mo. 16 June 1656, shortly before her execut. for the preposterous crime of witchcraft wh. is to be seen. in Geneal. Reg. VI.287,8, speaks of him and his brs. John, and Joseph, as if all were in Eng. and in the codic. of 19th of the same, acknowledg. "the more than ordinary affection and pains 'of this one,' in the time of my distress," as he had arriv. to attend the results of the exercrable fanaticism. She was prob. the richest person ever hanged in this part and the prejudice against witches long slumbered.
JOSEPH, Boston, m. 21 May 1656, Ruth Starr, had Joseph, b. 7 Mar. 1658. JOSEPH, Sudbury, m. Lydia, d. of John Maynard. MILES, Milford 1646 rem. as early at least as 1657, to New London, freem. 1663, call. OLD in 1680, left descend. thro. d. Miriam, w. of John Willey; beside Abel, bef. ment. RICHARD, Plymouth, brot. by Elder Brewster, with a br. both as serv. in the Mayflower, 1620, and the br. d. in few wks.; at the div. of cattle 1627, when the name of every man, woman, and [[vol. 3, p. 230]] ch. is giv. he was still assort. with Elder Brewster; but by Gov. Bradford's Hist. 451, we are taught that he. m. and in 1651 had four or five ch. liv. as if he had lost one or more. It is vain to regret, that the Gov. did not mention the names of the ch. or the mo. Perhaps he rem. to one of the newer settlem. for Winsor's Duxbury tells that he sold his land 1637, and I am convinc. aft. long search that he is the Richard by Deane, in Hist; of Scituate, call. Mann, as the other four passeng. with this bapt. name of Richard, were all then adult. See Mann.
RICHARD, Cape Porpoise. now Kennebunk, had gr. of 400 acres in 1647, and less than 20 yrs. aft. was of Scarborough, had w. Bridget, became pauper 1679, and d. 1681. See Southgate,77. RICHARD, Salem 1642, to wh. says Felt, was made gr. of land 1638, freem 28 Feb. 1643, tho. this man may have come in the Blessing, from London 1635, aged 20. He, or perhaps a s. of the same name, in a town office there, was liv. 1682; and in 1668 his name, with that of Richard jun. is sign. to the petitn. against imposts. He was a capt. and his w. d. 5 Oct. 1686. RICHARD, Lynn, by w. Alice, wh. d. 29 May 1661, had Mary, b. 15 Jan. preced. and he m. 6 Nov. 1662 Elizabeth Wildes. ROBERT, Boston 1651, tailor, rem. next yr. ROBERT, Boston, by w. Ann had Susanna, b. 6 Aug. 1686. SAMUEL, Salem, freem. 6 Mar. 1632, perhaps, therefore, came in Nov. preced. in the Lion, had Samuel, bapt. 23 Dec. 1636; and Remember, 9 Dec. 1638. SAMUEL, Boston prob. s. of Jeremy, m. 1 May 1660, Abigail, d. of Capt. Thomas Hawkins, had Mary, b. 2 May 1661; he d. in short time, and his wid. m. Thomas Kellond, and 3d h. Hon. John Foster. SAMUEL, Boston, by w. Naomi had Francis, b. 15 July 1670; and Edward, 5 July 1674.
SAMUEL, Lynn, had Mary, b early in June 1676, d. soon; Rebecca, 9 Nov. 1677, d. soon; Abigail, 26 Sept. 1678; and Ephraim, 17 June 1681; was freem. 1691. THOMAS, Dorchester, came in the Mary and John 1630, and prob. was br. of John of the same, freem. 18 May 1631, rem. 1635 or 6 to Windsor, perhaps rem. to Southold, L. I. where was one of this name 1662. THOMAS, Portsmouth, one of the first sett. sent by John Mason, the patentee, 1631. THOMAS, Salem 1636, prob. s. of Thomas, to whose wid. Ann, a midwife, was next yr. gr. of ld. made, by w. Martha had Thomas, and Martha, both apt. 21 Oct. 1639, soon aft. the parents were rec. of the ch.; Benjamin, 2 Aug. 1640; Nathaniel, 3 July 1642; Hannah, 9 Dec. 1644; Elizabeth 31. Jan. 1647; Jonathan, 3 June 1649; and Mary, 15 Dec. 1650; was freem. 27 Dec. 1642, and in few yrs. rem. THOMAS, Boston, mariner, m. at Cambridge, 9 Nov. 1653, Sarah Hodges, had Sarah, b. 26 Apr. 1655, d. next yr.; Sarah, again, 5 May 1660; Hannah, 26 Apr. 1662; Rachel, 25 May 1664; Elizabeth 27 Apr. 1667; and Thomas, 2 Sept. 1669, d. 1690.
THOMAS, Roxbury, freem. 1690, says the. Col. rec. but I have some doubt. WILLIAM, [[vol. 3, p. 231]] Salem, 1639 have been of Ipswich 1665, and d. 1671. WILLIAM, Exeter 1645, was, says Farmer, a rep. in the assemb. of N. H. WILLIAM, York 1652, when he subm. to the Mass. governm. to 1680, when he took the o. of alleg. to his Majesty. WILLIAM, Westerly 1669, may be the same, who at Norwich m. Aug. 16 Mary, wid. of Thomas Howard, wh. was k. at the battle of Philp's war, 19 Dec. 1675, d. of William Wellman, had Elizabeth b. 20 July 1678; Experience, 12 May 1680; Martha, 22 Feb. 1682; Joshua, 1683; William, 1685; and Abigail, 1687. His w. d. 3 Apr. 1700, and he m. 17 July foll. Mary, wid. of Joshua Allen of Windham, wh. d. 18 Sept. 1727; and he m. 10 June 1728, Tamison Simmons, and d. Apr. 1729.
WILLIAM, Amesbury 1670, a milit. officer, wh. m. as I presume, 7 Oct. 1673, Mary Veazie, perhaps d. of George of Dover. Seven of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at Harv. six at Yale, six at Dart. and twelve at other N. E. coll.
MOORES, EDMUND, Newbury, Co. says, came 1640, aged 26, by w. Ann, wh. d. 7 June 1676, had Martha, b. 12 Dec. 1643; Jonathan, 23 Apr. 1646; Mary, 30 Nov. 1648, Edmund, wh. d. 8 Nov. 1656; Richard, 3 Nov. 1653; and Sarah, 1 Apr. 1661. EDMUND, Newbury, call. jun. perhaps not s. of the preced. m. 3 Jan. 1667, Sarah Cooper, had Edmund, b. Dec. foll. prob. d. young; Sarah, 9 Dec. 1681; Mark, 9 Feb. 1689; Martha, 20 Aug. 1691; and Edmund, again, 3 Apr. 1693. JONATHAN, Newbury, s. of first Edmund, m. as Coffin says, 10 May 1670 [1680?], Constance Langhorne, had Jonathan, b. 3 Apr. 1681; Richard, 24 July 1683; Samuel, 20 Feb. 1686; Thomas, 6 Nov. 1688, and Dorothy, 8 Dec. 1690.
MATTHEW, Newbury, m. 27 Mar. 1662, Sarah Savory, had Sarah, b. 15 Dec. 1663; and William, 10 Feb. 1666; but an intermed. William was b. to wh. Coffin assigns impossib. date. SAMUEL, Newbury, m. 3 May 1653, Hannah, Plummer, wh. d. 8 Dec. 1654, and he m. 12 Dec. 1656, May Ilsley, d. of William of the same.
MORE. See Moore. HENRY, Dorchester 1675, had supplied a substit. in the comp. of capt. Johnson, Dec. of that yr. as may be read in the list, print. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 242, tho. his name is copied Mare. Many of the fam. have the name, as it were, interchangeable; the same person on one page of the rec. spelling each way.
