MOUSSETT, THOMAS, Boston, by w. Catharine had Peter, b. 18 Oct. 1687; was prob. a Huguenot, and one of the four rul. elders of that communion. But the name is not found in Boston any more, tho. I discover that he own. Id. ln Roxbury 1698, and had liv. at Braintree.

Martha and Rebecca were in 1651, said to be bewitched by Mary, w. of Hugh Parsons who was on trial, found guilty. The f. was, perhaps, more influenced by the writing or conversa. of Pynchon, whom he follow. to their native land 1653. Johnson, in Wonderwork. Provid. Lib. III. ch. 2, speaks largely of his ability, and suggegts no misgiving about the soundness of his faith; yet we can hardly doubt, that he was drawn home by sympathy with Pynchon to partake the greater freedom then enjoy. in Eng. and there d. 15 Sept. 1687, aged 85. Calamy, II. 313, names his s. George among the min. eject. 1662. [[vol. 3, p. 252]]

MULFORD, JOHN, Easthampton, L. I. 1650, one of the first sett. says Wood, 44, perhaps went home for some time, and came again in the Speedwell, 1656, from London when the name appears Mulfoot; was chos. Assist. 1658, had commiss. from Conn. in 1664 as a magistr. and 1674, as a judge. JOHN, Eastham, s. prob. of Thomas, m. 1 Nov. 1699, Jemima Higgins. THOMAS, Eastham, by w. Hannah had John, b.

MULLINER, THOMAS, New Haven 1640, was a gr. purchas. of Branford, by its Ind. name of Totoket, in that yr. had div. of lds. there in 1646 and 8. THOMAS, New Haven, prob. s. of the preced. sold out his lds. at Bradford 1651, by w. Martha had Martha, b. 4 July 1656; and Elizabeth 10 June 1658, rem. a. 1658 to West Chester, and there was liv. in 1691 with w. Martha.

MULLINS, or MOLINES, WILLIAM, Plymouth, came in the Mayflower 1620, with w. two ch. Joseph and Priscilla, and a serv. Robert Carter; but the w. d. a few days bef. or aft. him, who d. 21 Feb. 1621; and the s. and serv. d. the same season; but his d. Priscilla m. John Alden, and had eleven ch. WILLIAM, Duxbury 1642, may have been s. of the preced. left by his f. in Eng. or Holland, and aft. came to join the surviv. friends. He had lds. in Middleborough. Good est. as well as charact. is told of the pilgrim. WILLIAM, Boston, m. 7 May 1656, Ann, wid. of Thomas Bell.

MUMFORD, EDMUND, Boston, m. Elizabeth wid. of Joshua Carwithy of the same, a. 1663; but I kn. no more. PELEG, Kingstown, s. of Thomas the first, had two ws. it is said, Mary, d. of Ephraim Bull, and Mary, perhaps d. of the sec. John Coggeshall, yet there is some uncertain. a this, for his s. Peleg is also said to have m. that d. of Ephraim Bull. In the will of the f. however, pro. 1741, are nam. his ch. Peleg; Mary Hanson; Sarah Barber; Elizabeth Foster; and Hannah Hopkins; beside gr.ch. Samuel, Peleg, Thomas, Abigail, and Content. His kinsman, William Mumford, was made excor. STEPHEN, Newport, came from London 1664, and was the first preach. of the sect of seventh day Bapt. wh. prevails in a part of the State. I presume he had descend. 

THOMAS, Newport, had Thomas, b. 1656; Peleg, 1659; George; and Abigail, wh. m. 1 May 1682, Daniel Fish. Yet he does not appear a constant resid. at N. tho. he join. with Brenton, John Hull, and others in purch. and settlem. of Pettaquamscuck. Possib. the name is the same Mountfort. The name of his w. is not kn. nor the time of his d. but it was bef. 1692. THOMAS, prob. of Kingstown, eldest s. of the preced. by w. Abigail (whose surname is not told), had Thomas, b. 1 Apr. 1687; George, 15 July 1689; Joseph, 17 Sept. 1691; William, 18 Feb. 1694; Benjamin, 10 Apr. 1696; and Richard, 6 Sept. [[vol. 3, p. 254]] 1698; wh. six s. were popular. call. the thirty-six feet Mumfords. His w. d. 1707, in her 38th yr. Perhaps he had ano. w. Esther Tefft, in 1708, and by her, John, Sarah, Tabitha, and Esther, and he d. 1726. WILLIAM, a Quaker, whip. at Boston 1677, where, I presume, he staid not long.

MUN, or MUNN, BENJAMIN, Hartford, serv. in the war with the Pequots, rem. to Springfield, m. 1649, Abigail, wid. of Francis Ball, d. of Henry Burt, had Abigail, b. 1650; John, 1652; Benjamin, 1665; James, 1657; and Nathaniel, 1661; and d. Nov. 1675. His wid. m. lieut. Thomas Stebbins, and his d. Abigail m. Thomas Stebbins jr. DANIEL, Milford, d. 1666, leav. will. Inv. of his est. was L42. JAMES, Springfield, s. of Benjamin, was in the fight at Turner's Falls, 1676, and sett. at Colchester. JOHN, Westfield, eldest br. of the preced. was in the great fight of Turner's falls, m. 23 Dec. 1680, Abigail Parsons, and d. at Springfield 16 Sept. 1684, leav. John, b. 16 Mar. 1682, and Benjamin. His wid. m. 7 Oct. 1686, John Richards of Westfield. NATHANIEL, Springfield, youngest br. of the preced. may have had fam. SAMUEL, Woodbury 1680, wheelwright, may well seem to be of a differ. fam. from any of the preced. as Cothren says he came in from Milford, and his f. is unkn. had Jane, and Amy, bapt. Oct. 1680; Mary, Nov. 1681; Daniel, Feb. 1684; and Samuel, Apr. 1687. In mod. times the name has double n.

MUNDAY, or MONDAY, HENRY, Salibury freem. 13 May 1640, was rated in 1652, higher than any other inhab. but one. Farmer, from the rec. says his w. d. 22 July 1654. The spell. is sometimes Monde or Munde. He has prefix of respect in town rec. WILLIAM, passeng. in the Mary and John 1634, may have been f. of the preced. at least we kn. that sev. of the early sett. at Salisbury came in that voyage.

MUNDEN, Springfield m. 16 May 1644, Ann Munson, had Mary, b. 8 Aug. 1645, and he was drown. 29 Oct. at Enfield Falls, the same yr. This d. was complain. against, 1676, at Northampton, or "wearing silk, and that in a flaunting manner;" the enormity of her offence was aggravat. perhaps, by the disaster of her f. thirty yrs. bef. Yet her character was so good as to obtain a h. next yr. Peter Plimpton.

MUNGER, JOHN, Guilford, s. of Nicholas, m. 1684, Mary Everts, d. of James, had Mary, b. 1686, d. young; John, 1687; Mary, again, 1689; Abigail, 1691; Ebenezer, 4 July 1693; Caleb, 1695; Jonathan, 1697; Josiah, 20 July, 1704; and Rachel, 1706; and he d.

Dennis Scranton, or Crampton; but I have not courage enough to adjudge the right. SAMUEL, Guilford, younger s. of the preced. by w Sarah had Samuel, b. 1689; Joseph, 1693; Sarah 1695; Deliverance, a d. 1697; Nathaniel, 1699; James, 1701; Ann, 1703; and Jane 1705; and he d. 5 Nov. 1717. [[vol. 3, p. 255]]

MUNJOY, or MUNGY, BENJAMIN, of Boston, perhaps was a mariner in 1655, but of him no more is kn. exc. that admin. on his est. was. giv. in Essex Co. 28 June 1659, to his w. wh. brot. in inv. of L19,2,5. Perhaps he was br. of George. GEORGE, Boston, master mariner,or sh. carpent. 1647, s. of John of Abbotsham, near Biddeford, Devonsh. adm. of the ch. 15 May, and same mo. freem. m.

Phillips, Benjamin, Pelatiah, and Gershom; all liv. 1675, when the Ind. war began. He d. 1681, leav. wid. Mary and most of the ch. so bef. ment. but only three had fams. Mary m. John Palmer of F.; Hepzibah m. a Mortimore; and the wid. Robert Lawrence, and in 1690, Stephen Cross. 

GEORGE, Braintree, s. of the preced. by w. Mary had Josiah, wh. d. without ch.; Mary; and ano. d. b. aft. he made his will, 25 Feb. 1697; and he d. next yr. JOHN, Falmouth, br. of the preced. was k. by the Ind. in their assault, 11 Aug. 1676, and left wid. and only ch. Huldah, so that the name was soon extinct, exc. as it is preserv. in the hill on wh. stands the observatory in the beautiful city of Portland. See Willis, I. 93, 170. Munjoy was easily adopt. from the sound of old Mountjoy; but the ancestor in our country always used the shorter form. WALTER, Marblehead 1668, petitnr. against imposts.

MUNNINGS, or MULLINGS, EDMUND, Dorchester, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 40, with w. Mary, 30; and ch. Mary, 9; Ann, 6; and Mahalaleel, 3. At D. had Hopestill, b. 15 Apr. 1637; Returned, 7 Sept. 1640; and Takeheed, 20 Oct. 1642. He was a propr. late as 1658, but had prob. gone home, I think, to Malden, Co. Essex, there, at least was somehow connect. with Joseph Hills, who bef. com. over had given M. L11 in a bill for bring. one bullock for the use of H. GEORGE, Watertown, came from Ipswich, Co. Suff'k in the Elizabeth, 1634, aged 37 with w. Elizabeth 41; and ch.

His will, made the day bef. names w. Johanna, to wh. he gave his est. She had, I judge, been wid. of Simon Boyer. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 354. Farmer has noted the misprint of his name in the Christian Examiner for 1828, p. 501.

His est. was insolv. The wid. m. Thomas Overman, and his d. Hannah m. Josiah Willis. At the London custom-ho. the names of his fam. are Monnings.

MUNROE, or MONROE, ALEXANDER, whose place of resid. in N. E. is not sure, had bef. May 1651, lawsuit in Mass. with Elias Parkman. See Col. Rec. IV. pt. I. 52 and 114. prob. he was a Scotch merch. trans. certain. not a prisoner, sent here for sale. BENJAMIN, Lexington, Youngest s. of William, by w.

He d. 7 Jan. 1717, call. 92 yrs. old. It has been conject. that he was a prisoner, tak. by Cromwell at [[vol. 3, p. 257]] the decisive battle of Worcester 1651, ship. in Nov. to be sold here, where the 272 unhappy men arr. in May foll. but I see little reason for the conject. exc. that Hugh, John, Robert, and ano. without bapt. name, all Monrows, form. part of the sad freight. See Geneal. Reg. 378, 9. Of his ds. Martha m. 21 Jan. 1688, John Come of Concord; Hannah m. 21 Dec. 1692, Joseph Pierce, as his sec. w.; Elizabeth m. a Rugg; Mary m. perhaps, a Farwell; Eleanor m. 21 Aug. 1707, William Burgess of Charlestown; and, Sarah m. a Blanchard.
