MOREHOUSE, or MOOREHOUSE, John, Fairfield, ensign in 1676. JONATHAN, Fairfield, m. Mary, d. of Edward Wilson of the same, bef. 1684. SAMUEL, Fairfield, perhaps s. of Thomas, freem. 1664, liv. 1670. THOMAS, Wethersfield 1640, perhaps was at Stamford next yr. but in 1653 at Fairfield.

MORFIELD, or MOORFIELD, JOHN, Hingham, came in the Diligent, 1638, from Hingham. [[vol. 3, p. 232]]

MORELL, WILLIAM came in Sept. 1623, with Robert Gorges, sat down at Weymouth, but soon went to Plymouth, aft. Gorges left him, and home within a yr. His verses, Latin and translat. into Eng. show he was a fair scholar; and his prudence was pro. by not producing, the ecclesiast. commission he had to rule on this side of the water.

MOREY, BENJAMIN, Wickford 1674, was some relat. prob. of Isaac Heath of Roxbury, who names Mary and Benjamin his will of Jan. 1661. GEORGE, Duxbury 1640, d. next yr. may be the passeng. 1635, from London, aged 23, by the Truelove. By the Col. Ct. Jan. 1641, this strange order was pass. that Thomas Roberts of Duxbury ╥shall lodge no more with George M. a diseased person.╙ GEORGE, Bristol, m. 21 Dec. 1683, Hannah Lewis, had John, b. 3 Oct. 1684; Mary, 24 Mar. 1688; Sarah, 4 Mar. 1691; Hannah, 18 May 1694; George, 31 Aug. 1696; all bapt. 13 June 1697; Martha, 12 Mar. bapt. 23 Apr. 1699; Abigail, 27 Feb. bapt. 21 June 1702; Benjamin, 18 Apr. bapt. 17 June 1705; and Thomas, 1 Jan. bapt. 20 Mar. 1709. His w. d. Dec. 1717, and he rem. to Norton. GEORGE, Norton, s. of the preced. was a capt. and d. 1784. He had George, wh. was f. of Rev. George, H. C. 1776. 

FRANCIS, Salem, 1686. JOHN, came in the Blessing, 1635, aged 19, from London, but I kn. no more of him. JOHN, Bristol, perhaps br. of the sec. George, by w. Hannah had Hannah, b. 1 Feb. 1687, wh. d. in few wks. JONATHAN, Plymouth m. 8 July 1659, Mary, wid. of Richard Foster, d. of Robert Bartlett, was sw. a freem. 1682. JOSEPH, Wickford 1674. NATHANIEL, Providence, m. July 1666, Joanna Inman, perhaps d. of the first Edward, had John, and prob. Joanna. ROGER, Providence 1649, had early been one of Salem ch. by w. Mary had Bethia, Mehitable; Roger, b. 8 May 1649; Thomas, 19 July 1632; and Hannah, 28 Sept. 1656; and he d. 5 Jan. 1668. ROGER, may have liv. at Milton, and, perhaps m. Mary, d. of John Johnson, and had Abigail, bapt. at Roxbury, in her mo.'s right, 8 Aug. 1680. 

THOMAS, Roxbury, m. 6 Sept. 1673, Susanna, d. of the sec. Abraham Newell, had Thomas, b. May 1678, d. very soon; Abigail, bapt. 4 Apr. 1680, perhaps d. soon, Abigail, b. 30 Mar. 1681; Mary, apt. 20 Aug. 1682; Susanna, 27 Apr. bapt. 17 May 1685; John, 13, bapt. 27 July 1687; Elizabeth 14 Dec. 1689; and Nathaniel, 28 May 1694. He was freem. 1685, and d. 25 Dec. 1717; but I do not find. the date of d. w. Abigail m. Apr. 1697, Timothy Harris.

MORGAN, BENNETT, Plymouth, came in the Fortune, 1621, but he had not sh. in the of cattle 1627, and so we may be sure he was gone, but whither is unkn. DAVID, Springfield, s. of Miles, freem. 1690, d. 1731, leav. Pelatiah, David, John, Ebenezer, Benjamin, and Mary. FRANCIS, Kittery 1664, was next yr. appoint. admor. on the gr. est. of capt. John Mitchell. ISAAC, Springfield, 1678, br. of David, was in the Falls fight in Philip's war, rem. to Enfield, d. 1706, hav. had five ch. of wh. Abigail alone surv. JAMES ROXBURY, 1685 m. 6 Aug. of that yr. Margery Hill, had Hannah, b. 18 July, bapt. 18 Dec. 1642; James, bapt. 3 Mar. 1644; John, 30 Mar. 1645, tho. rec. of b. is 30 Sept.; JOSEPH, Nov. 1646; Abraham, 3 Sept. 1648, d. in Aug. foll.; and a d. 17 Nov. 1650, wh. d. next week; but the town rec. omits the four last; was freem. 10 May 1643, rem. to New London, was rep. 1657, when he sw. he was fifty yrs. old, and rep. for the last time 1670. 

JAMES, New London, s. of the preced. was adm. freem. 1669, d. 8 Dec. 1671. JAMES, Boston, had David b. 10 Nov. 1676; and Jonathan, 19 [[vol. 3, p. 233]] Nov. 1680, may have serv. in Moseley's mp. Dec. 1651, perhaps, was not that JAMES, of Boston, whose story is in the Magnalia, book VI. 40-43, execut. for murder, 11 Mar. 1686. JOHN, New London, s. of the first James, m. 16 Nov. 1660, Rachel, d. of John Deming, had, says Miss Caulkins, seven ch. by her, and six more by sec. w. Elizabeth made freem. 1669 was a lieut. and d. 1712. JONATHAN, Springfield, s. of Miles, as in the Falls fight 1676, freem. 1690, d. 1714, leav. Jonathan, and four ds. JOSEPH, Lynn m. 12 July 1669, Deborah Hart. 

JOSEPH, Greenwich, ment. in Mather's Hecatompolis, as the min. may have been s. of the first James. MILES, Springfield by fam. tradit. said to have arr. at Boston in Apr. 1636, with two brs. from Bristol, by Prudence had Mary, b. 1645 Jonathan, 16, David, 1648; Pelatiah, 1650; Isaac, 1652; Lydia, 1654; Hannah, 1656; Mercy, 1658; and his w. d. 1661. He m. next, 15 Feb. 1670 Elizabeth Bliss, d. of Thomas, had Nathaniel, 1671; and d. 28 May 1669. Lydia m. 1677, John Pierce. MOSES, a soldier under capt. Turner 1676, at Hadley was prob. from E. part of the Col. NATHANIEL, Springfield, prob. youngest s. of Miles, had Nathaniel, Samuel, Ebenezer, Miles, Joseph, James, Isaac, Hannah, and Elizabeth OWEN, New Haven, m. 9 Apr. 1650, wid. Joan Bryan. Hall finds his name in 1656 at Norwalk; and a wid. was propr. 1655, as by his valua. Hist. but no clue is kn. to the name of her h. or the time of his d. RICHARD, Dover 1659, was prob. of Exeter 1684. ROBERT, Saco 1636, may be he of Kennebeck 1665, nam.in Sullivan, 287. 

ROBERT, Salem 1637, adm. of the ch. 1650, and on 23 June of that yr. had bapt. Samuel, Luke, Joseph, and Benjamin, and on 15 Dec. foll. Robert; Bethia, 29 1653; and Aaron, 24 May 1663; was one of the found. of the ch. at Beverly 1667. His will, of 14 Oct. 1672, pro. 24 June foll. names w. Margaret, s. Samuel, was w.'s f. Norman but wh. he was is not clear),s. Benjamin, Robert, Bethia, s. Joseph, and Moses. His inv. was of 10 Nov. 1672. ROGER, Charlestown, d. 23 Dec. 1675. SAMUEL, Marblehead 1674. He m. 15 Dec. 1658, Elizabeth d. of lieut. William Dixy. WILLIAM, Amesbury 1677, perhaps twelve yrs. later liv. in New Hampsh.

MORLEY, JOHN, Braintree, freem. 1645, rem. 1658 to Charlestown, he and his w. being rec. into this ch. 29 Aug. of that yr. there d. 24 Jan. 1661; and his wid. Constant, wh. was first of the ch. at Dorchester, d. 1669. Yet Frothingham, 80, names her as wid. inhab. of 1631, tho. perhaps he means Catharine, wh. may have been his mo. in the will of Morley, made a week bef. his d. referred to as then dec. He also names in it sis. Ann Farmer. He gave to his wid. Constant, all his est. in N. E. and his lds. and tenem. at Cheshunt, in Co. Herts, O. E. In her will is more instruct. for the genealog. as she rememb. her br. Joye (perhaps meaning Joseph) Starr, her sis. Ann Farmer, her sis. Suretrust [[vol. 3, p. 234]] Rous, her cous. i. e. neph. John Starr. sen. her cous. Mercy Swett, her cous. Simon Eyre, and gives to cous. Elizabeth w. of John Ferniside, and Elizabeth w. of Joshua Edmunds, but the gr. residue of her est. to William and Elizabeth childr. of said Elizabeth Edmunds. No doubt, she was sis. of the first Comfort Starr. THOMAS, Westfield. See Marlo.

MORRALL, PETER, Salem, m. 27 Sept. 1675, Mary Butler, both were from Isle of Jersey.

MORRIL, ABRAHAM, Cambridge 1632, perhaps came in the Lion, with br. Isaac, ar. co. 1638, rem. with orig. props. to Salisbury, where, in 1650, only four men were tax. higher, d. at Roxbury, on a visit, June 1662.

Mar. 1661; and Hepzibah, posthum. Jan. 1663. His will, made the yr. of his d. pro. 4 Oct. names w. Sarah, ch. Isaac, the eldest, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Lydia, and Sarah, beside br. Job Clement. His est. was 1507. Lydia m. 9 Nov. 1682 Ephraim Severence. 

ABRAHAM, Salisbury 1677, s.of the preced. m. 1688, Sarah, Bradbury, had Bradbury, b. 22 Mar. 1693, d. young; and Sarah, 18 Dec. 1696. EZEKIAL, Reading, perhaps br. of the first Abraham, or s. of him, or his br. Isaac, had w. Mary, and d. on a visit at Roxbury, 22 May 1663. His will, of 31 May preced. ment. f.-in-law, and mo. without name of either. His wid. prob. m. 12 Aug. foll. Thomas Hodgman of R. prob. more no ch. to either h. HENRY, New Haven, 1644, had Sarah, b. 1650, and he d. 1665. ISAAC, ROXBURY, br. of Abraham, said to have been b. 1588, came in the Lion, arr. 16 Sept. 1632, bring. w. and prob. Sarah and Catharine; freem. 4 Mar. 1633, ar. co. 1638, by w.

Sarah m. 1646, Tobias Davis, and d. 23 Jan. 1649; Catherine m. 1 Aug. 1647, John Smith; and Hannah. m. 5 Nov. 1652, Daniel Brewer, His will print. in Geneal. Reg. XI. 35, made a few days bef. his d. gave est. to w. for her life, names ch. John, Isaac, Francis, Mary, and Abraham Smith, and Sarah Davis. His wid. d. 9 Jan. 1673, aged 72. Charlestown, freem. 1682, of wh. it is very vexatious to be unable to tell more than that he was prob. br. of the first Abraham. 

ISAAC, Salisbury, s. of Abraham the first, perhaps had two ws. by Phebe, had Abraham, b. 22 Aug. 1671 and Isaac, by Susanna, had Mary, 1 Feb. 1674; Sarah, 29 May 1675; Jacob, 25 May 1677; Rachel, 18 Feb. 1682, d. soon; Daniel, 8 Feb. 1683; Jemima, 9 Oct. 1685; Mary, again, 10 Sept. 1689; and Rachel, 24 Aug. 1692.

Moses, James, bury, br. of Jacob, freem. 1690, m. Rebecca, d. of William Barnes of the same, had William Barnes M. so nam. (bef. the custom of doub. names so common and uncomfort. was introduc.) to preserve memo. of his gr.f. RICHARD, New Hampsh. 1640. Thomas, Gravesend 1650, Newtown, L. I. 1655. Thompson. Six of this name had, in 1834, gr. at Harv. and four at other N. E. coll. Early this is call. Morrell, in town rec. Murrells.

MORRIS, DANIEL, Hampton 1640. DORMAN, Boston, by w. Elinor had Daniel b. 13 Feb. 1672; and Honor, 1 Apr. 1674. EDMUND, came in the Confidence, 1638, from Southampton. He was a carpenter, of Dorsetsh. perhaps the parish of Kington Magna, near Shaftesbury, but I hear nothing later of him. EDWARD, Roxbury, m. 29 Nov. 1655, Grace Burr, but; in Boston rec. as cop. in Geneal. Reg. XI. 201, the name is giv. Bett, wh. seems less likely to be correct surname, had Isaac, b. 16 Sept. 1656, bapt. 19 Sept. 1658; Edward, bapt. 13 Mar. 1659; Grace, 17 Feb. 1661; Ebenezer, b. 14, bapt. 17 Apr. 1664, Elizabeth bapt. 26 Mar. 1666; Margaret, 27 Sept. 1668; Samuel, 9 Apr. 1671; and Martha, 3 Jan. 1675; was rep. 1678 and to 1686. His wid. Grace d. 6 June 1705, says the rec. but his own dec. is not ment. there. He had rem. to New Roxbury, since call. Woodstock, and was d. 27 Jan. 1692, when admin. on his est. was gr. Grace, his d. m. 7 Mar. 1683, Benjamin Child; and Elizabeth m. 9 May 1685, Joshua Child; and Margaret m. 4 Apr. 1689, John Johnson. 

EDWARD, Roxbury, s. preced. m. 24 May 1683, Elizabeth Brown, had Elizabeth b. 12 Feb. 1685, d. soon; Elizabeth again, 3 Feb. 1686; Edward, 9 Nov. 1688. ELEAZER, New Haven, s. of Thomas, by w. Ann Osborne had Rebecca, b. 20 June 1682; John, 8 Oct. 1684; James; Eleazer; Adonijah; and Ann. His wid. d. 10 Dec. 1726. ISAAC, Roxbury, eldest s. of Edward the first, was a soldier in Johnson's comp. in the gr. Narraganset fight, m. 2 Mar. 1680, Hannah, d. of John Mayo, had prob. no ch. perhaps rem. to Woodstock, as he was admor. on est. of his. but came back to R. where his w. d. 5 Nov. 1701; and he m. 3 Nov. 1702, Mary, wid. of Ebenezer Pierpont and d. 21 Oct. 1715. 

JOHN, Hartford 1640, d. bef. Mar. 1669, in his will names ch. John, Joshua and Mary. His wid. Martha m. Roger Jepson of Saybrook; and d. Mary m. 25 Nov. 1680, John Tillosston of S. JOHN, New Haven, s. of Thomas, not perhaps b. in Eng. had w. Ann, wh. d. 4 Apr. 1664; m. 29 Mar. 1666, wid. Elizabeth Lamson, had John, b. 16 Dec. foll. wh. d. soon, and she d. bef. long. He m. 12 [[vol. 3, p. 236]] Aug. 1669, Hannah Bishop, and by this third w. had Mary, 19 June 1670, d. soon; Hannah, 10 Aug. 1671, Mary, again, 9 Sept. 1673; Elizabeth 1675; Thomas, 26 Apr. 1679, d. young; Abigail, 22 Aug. 1683; and Desire, 25 Mar. 1687. He d. 1718. JOSEPH, New Haven, br. of the preced. m. 2 June 1680, Esther Winstone, had Thomas, b. 23 Mar. 1682; Esther, 3 Sept. 1684; Sarah, 1686; Joseph, 1688; Ephraim, 1694; Dorothy, Sept. 1695; Benjamin, Apr. 1699; Mary, June 1702; and Samuel, July 1705; and d. 1711. RICE, Charlestown, by w. Esther had Hannah, bapt. 29 Nov. 1634; and Esther, b. 6, bapt. 14 Mar. 1641, perhaps more, and d. 5 Apr. 1647. But the name appears Morus in Geneal. Reg.IX. 170. RICHARD, Boston 1630, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop as he and w. Lenora were very early of the ch. Nos. 64 and 5, and he was made freem. 18 May 1631 with the title of serj. and so perhaps a hired officer, bec. lieut. at Roxbury soon aft. and was rep. 1635, ar. co. 1637, but favoring the cause of Rev. John Wheelwright, was disarm. and with that heresiarch went to Exeter, 1638. The name is first on our ch. rec. writ. Maurice, and when, 6 Jan. 1639, dismiss. was gr. to Wheelwright and eight others, includ. him, "unto the ch. of Christ. at the falls of Paschiataqua, if they be rightly gathered and ordered," the spelling is Morrys. It is wrong in Drake's diligent Hist. 224, as it was first in Belknap, wh. Farmer did not correct. 

RICHARD, Portsmouth, R. I. 1643, then among the freem. 1655, seems to be the same as preced. ROBERT, Rehoboth 1640, d. bef. 1647. Baylies, II. 200, 203. ROBERT, Hartford, br. of John, was divorc. from w. had no ch. d. 19 Nov. 1684. giv. est. to relat. SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of Edward the first, by w. Mehitable had Samuel, b. 13 Aug. 1695; Benjamin, 18 Oct. 1696; Mehitable, 25 June 1698; Rebecca, 15 Sept. 1699; Hannah, 9 Nov. 1700; Dorothy, 1 Feb. 1702; and Prudence, 31 Jan. 1703; and w. d. 8 Feb. foll. THOMAS, New Haven 1639, by w. Elizabeth had John; Hannah, b. 14 Mar. 1642, bapt. 18 June 1643; Elizabeth perhaps bapt. 10 Dec. foll.; John; Eleazer, bapt. 29 Oct. 1648; Thomas and Ephraim, tw. b. 3, bapt. 5 Oct. 1651, of wh. Ephraim d. next day, but Thomas liv. over 21 yrs.; and Joseph, b. 25 Mar. bapt. 25 May, 1656. His wid. Elizabeth d. 1681, and he d. 21 July 1673. His will, of 11 July preced. gives est. to the ds. and John, Eleazer, and Joseph, wh. were props. 1685. Hannah m. 1662, Thomas Lupton. THOMAS, Boston, of wh. no more is kn. than that he d. quite early, for his will was on p. 18 now missing of our first vol. of Pro. Rec. if we may trust the index. THOMAS, Casco 1652, perhaps next yr. at Dover. 

WILLIAM, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, was perhaps, br. of Richard, may have liv. at Westerly. WILLIAM, Charlestown, 1658, perhaps of Boston, there by w. Dorcas had William, b. 18 Dec. 1665, rem. prob. to Wethersfield, and was freem. of Conn. 1669, and d. 1697. [[vol. 3, p. 237]]

MORRISON, ANDREW, New Haven 1690. He m. 21 Oct. 1687, Sarah, d. of William Jones, had Sarah, b. 7 July 1689; Margaret, 16 Aug. 1691, d. in few wks.; Ann, 4 Nov. 1693; Theophilus, 6 Jan. 1696; Margaret, again, 12 Aug. 1699; and Andrew. He d. early in 1703. DANIEL, Newbury, by w. Hannah, wh. d. 9 Oct. 1700, had Daniel, b. 1 Aug. 1691; John, 28 Mar. 1693; Hannah, 27 Jan. 1696; Ebenezer, 6 Oct. 1697; and Mary, 20 Mar. but Coffin omits yr.

MORSE, ABRAHAM, Newbury, s. of Robert, b. perhaps in Eng. by his w. Elizabeth bef. he left Marlborough, in Wilts, if his f. may be presum. br. of Anthony, rem. it is said, to New Jersey. ANTHONY, Newbury, a shoemaker of Marlborough, Wiltsh. arr. at Boston, 3 June 1635, in the James from Southampton, said to have been b. 9 May 1606, freem. 25 May 1636, by w. Mary had Anthony; Benjamin, b. 4 Mar. 1640; Sarah, 1 May 1641; Hannah, 1642; Lydia, May 1645, d. soon; Lydia, again, 7 Oct. 1647, d. in few mos.; Mary, 9 Apr. 1649, d. at 13 yrs.; Esther, 3 May 1651; Joshua, 4 July 1653; and the Fam. Genealog. adds Mary, prob. but I doubt; Coffin gives him also, Joseph, John, and Peter; yet he has confus. the marriages and deaths of f. and s. and has prob. done the same with ch. He was freem. 2 May 1636, had a sec. w. Ann, wh. d. 9 Mar. 1680, and he d. 12 Oct. 1686. Sarah m. 24 June 1663, Amos Stickney; and Esther m. 2 Feb. 1669, Robert Holmes.

His orig. parchm. deed, convey. with assent of w. Lydia, to John: Hull, part of his est. in M. 7 June 1666, was in my poss. and giv. to my friend Nathaniel I. Bowditch, Esq. and his last [[vol. 3, p. 238]] resid. was in Sherborn, where he d. 1688, and wid. d. 29 Jan. 1691, aged 70 at Sherborn.
