Abigail Scott, Hannah, w. of Nehemiah Hayden, Sarah Mansfield, Mary, w. of John Thayer, Ruth Thayer, Deborah, Lydia, Rebecca, Rachel, Elizabeth and Joanna; but to the last six, perhaps ch. of the surv. w. only £20 ea. are giv. The boast on his gr.-stone is, that he was f. of 21 ch. but far better is it thot. to provide for 15. HENRY, Braintree, s. of the preced. m. it is said, 14 Feb. 1666, Hannah Pray; and nothing more is told, but that he d. 26 July 1717. JEREMIAH, Easthampton, L. I. 1649.

July 1722. His wid. d. bef. May 1735. JOHN, Salem, freem. 18 May 1642, but Felt does not incl. his name with ch. memb. wh. may be conjectural. expl. by guess, that he had unit. with some other ch. bef. going thither; yet he had bapt. there, John, 22 May 1642; John, again, 24 Mar. 1644; Jeremiah, 18 Jan. 1646; Lydia, 7 Apr. 1650, Jonathan, 15 Aug. 1652; Mary, b. 14 Mar. bapt. 29 Apr. 1655; the last two d. young; Jonathan, again, 6 Sept. 1 657; and John, again, bapt. 24 June 1658, tho. we may be confident that he was b. several yrs. bef. and I should prefer to make his day of bapt. 24 Jan. 1647; beside Sarah, wh. d. 22 July 1658, perhaps quite young; and Joseph, b. as the fam. tradit. goes, 1663, (but by rec. 14 Mar. 1659, i. e. 1660); and d. 12 May 1672. His will of 9 days preced. anm. ch. and gr.ch. in Essex Inst. II. 72. As Mary is among ch. memb. 1647, I presume she was his only ch. of Francis Laurie or Lawes, and she m. next, Andrew Mansfield. Lydia m. Nov. 1671, Jonathan Hart. JOHN, Salem, s. of the preced. m. Ann Nichols, had John, b. 15 Apr. 1673; Thomas, 14 Feb. 1675; Joseph, 4 Dec. 1677; and Rebecca, 23 Feb. 1679; and he d. 11 Nov. foll. His wid. m. William Sterling of Haverhill. 

JOSEPH, Salem, br. of the preced. m. Judith, d. of Richard Croad of the same had Judith, b. 1682, d. at 16 yrs.; Joseph, 1690; Lydia; and Hannah. His w. d. bef. 1689, and he rem. to Pennsylv. JOSEPH, Braintree, s. of the first Henry, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 4 Sept. 1689; Hannah, 6 Dec. 1691; and Elizabeth 12 May 1695; and he d. 23 Dec. 1737. His wid. d. 18 Apr. 1747, aged [[vol. 3, p. 265]] 83 yrs. SAMUEL, a soldier on Conn. riv. under capt. Turner in 1676, was from Braintree, s. of Henry, m. 18 Apr. 1678, Abigail, d. of James Penniman, and, perhaps liv. in New Hampsh. in 1690, pray. for jurisdict. of Mass. WALTER, Portsmouth, came early in 1630, by the Warwick, as Gov. of the planta. of Gorges and Mason, went home in Aug. 1633, sail. from Boston 13th of that mo. aft. being above ten days there. Both his coming and going, therefore, from this shore, is to a sober man satisfact. proof of the falsity of the gr. Ind. deed to Wheelwright of 17 May 1629, seven yrs. bef. the grantee came, and one yr. bef. this witness arr. Much stronger, even, is the evid. of forgery of a letter, pretend. to be of Neal and Wiggin, to the patentee John Mason, 13 Aug. 1633, wh. by the managers of the fraud, intend. for a buttress of the splendid grant. That letter purports to be writ. at Northam, wh. was the complimenta. name some yrs. later, for Dover, on the Piscataqua, when we kn. from p. 107 of Vol. I. of the Hist. by Gov. Winthrop that on that same day Neal was at Boston, and had been above a week, with a comp. of eight friends, to embark in the Elizabeth Bonadventure that sail. for Eng. on 15 of that month; and from p. 115 of the same Vol. that Wiggin was in London on the date of that forgery of the prepostr. letter, embarking at Gravesend for Salem, the very day that Neal left Boston for Eng. In the assiduity of Farmer no further acco. is reach. but he thinks 

WALTER of N. H. 1660, who by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 14 June 1661, and was in 1673, lieut. in the comp. of wh. James Pendleton was capt. might have been his s. He join. most of his neighb. in desir. jurisdict. of Mass. 1690.

NEAVE, MARGARET, Salem, came from Yarmouth, in Co. Norf'k 1637, a wid. aged 58, with gr.ch. Rachel Dickson, in the Mary Ann, and ten yrs. aft. join. the ch. I presume this is the same person, that d. 1 June 1658, at Salem, but, in Essex Inst. II. 299, call. Neare.

NEEDHAM, ANTHONY, Salem, m. 10 Jan. 1656, with w. Ann, only ch. of Humprey Potter, had Rebecca, b. 21 Dec. foll.; Ann, 31 Aug. 1658; Elizabeth 1 Dec. 1659; Provided, 12 Apr. 1661; Anthony, 11 Apr. 1663; Mary, 30 Apr. 1665; George, 26 Mar. 1667; Isaac, 15 Apr. 1669; Abigail, 31 May 1671; Thomas, 25 July 1673; Dorothy, 25 Aug. 1675; and Rachel, 17 Mar. 1678. He and w. were charg. as Quakers 1658, he then 30 yrs. old, and the w. aft. being oft. fined for abs. from publ. worsh. in vain, was in June 1660, sentenc. to be whip. twelve stripes. Yet these perverse worshipers have no small claims on our kind regard, at least for their long contin. lives, both acting in 1696, and he in 1705, beside good success in rear. ch. for we see by deed of 1 Jan. 1730, that Anthony, Isaac, Thomas, Rebecca, Hannah, Elizabeth Mary, Abigail, and Rachel should enjoy the est. of their mo. Rebecca m. Jan. 1676, Michael Chapleman. 

DANIEL, Lynn, s. of Edmund, m. 24 Feb. 1659 (Lewis strange. says 1673) Ruth, Chadwell, had Daniel, b. 19 Feb. 1665; Judith, 24 June 1667; Ezekiel, 13 May 1670; Mary, 28 Nov. 1672; Elizabeth 1 Feb. 1675; Edmund, 17 Sept. 1677; Daniel and Ruth, tw. 23 Feb. 1680, of wh.

NICHOLAS, Exeter 1638, one of the 35 who form. the orig. compact there, was a witness to the true deed from Ind. sachems, made to Wheelwright and others, not the spurious one, bearing date 7 or 8 yrs. bef W. came from Eng.; was liv. in 1652. See Appendix to Winthrop╒s Hist. of N. E. Vol. I. p. 499. WILLIAM, Braintree, may have been of Newport 1638, and came aft. to Mass. freem. 1648, rem. I think, to Boston, had prob. no w. or ch. for in his will of 10 June 1690, he freely gives one third of his est. to Old South ch. opposite to wh. was his resid. and two thirds to William, and John, s. of his kinsman John N. late of Boston, dec. and he minutely dispose of his furnit. and d. 30 Dec. aft.

He was clk. of the writs 1651, and sev. yrs. aft. and seems to have been faithful in mak. returns of bs. ds. and ms. as the law requir. and much must we lament that the county recorder did not scrupulously compare these transcripts from the several rec. of the respective towns in his jurisdict. wh. have long been universal. lost; or that the first copies in [[vol. 3, p. 267]] most instances are lost, so that an inquirer is compel. to rely on a copy of a copy. Negus had est. at Muddy riv. and his sis. Grace m. Barnabas Fawer.

NEIGHBORS, or NABORS, JAMES, Boston, cooper, by w. Lettice had Rebecca, b. 30 Mar. 1657, but she prob. d. young, far in his will of 27 Jan. pro. 19 June at B. on acco. of est. here 1672, he gave est. to five, elder ds.

Coffin, wh. says he 20 Aug. 1691, tells a sad story a. his delusion as to power of working miracles, that Farmer abstract. but I prefer to omit. PHILIP, Rowley 1691, s. of the preced. 

THOMAS, Rowley 1638, prob. arr. that yr. freem. 23 May 1639, rep. 16411; brot. from Eng. Philip, and Thomas, and w. Joanna had Mercy, and Samuel went home in 1647 or 8, as we learn from. his will, made in contemplat. of the voyage so early as 24 Dec. 1645, with codic. made in Eng. designing to return hither, 6 Aug. 1648, wherein his uncle, Rich. Dummer and Gov. Bellingham have trusts as excors. and also care of the ch. Abst. is in the Geneal. Reg. III. 267. I suppose he d. bef. coming, back, THOMAS, Rowley, s. of the preced. m, Ann, d. of Francis Lambert, had Thomas, b. 1661; [[vol. 3, p. 268]] Jonathan, 1667; Gershom, 1672; and Francis, 1676; beside three ds.; and by sec. w.

NETHERLAND, WILLIAM, in the list of freem. 4 Mar. 1635, and of the jury of inq. on Peter Fitchew's body, found drown. 18 May 1639, I judge must be that Lytherland, a well kn. memb. of Boston ch. See that name.

NETTLETON, JOHN, Killingworth 1663, propound. to be made free, 1670, may have been s. of Samuel, and liv. at Milford 1713. SAMUEL, Milford in 1639 or soon aft. had Hannah, wh. m. 10 July 1656, Thomas Smith; Martha, wh. m. 1656, John Ufford; and, perhaps, other ch.; was propr. there 1713, unless ano.
