NEVINSON, JOHN, Watertown 1670, came a. 2 yrs. bef. from East Horsley, in Co. Surry, s. of Rev. Roger, by w. Elizabeth m. prob. in Eng. had John; Sarah, b. 22 July 1672; Elizabeth 22 Oct. 1675; Ann, 2 Oct. 1678; William, 26 June 1681; and Mary, wh. was the oldest ch. b. in Eng.; and d. 24 Jan. 1695. Soon aft. the wid. m. William Bond. Both s. d. unm. the elder on 23 Feb. 1692; the younger in 1711; and so the name fail. Sarah m. 29 Oct. 1713, Nathaniel Stearns, and next, Samuel Livermore; Elizabeth m. 24 Apr. 1694, Samuel Hastings; Ann m. 30 Aug. 1716, Joshua Grant; and Mary m. Samuel Hastings soon aft. early d. of her sis. his first w.

NEWBERRY, BENJAMIN, Windsor, s. of Thomas of Dorchester, b. in Eng. m. 11 June 1646, Mary, only d. of Matthew Allyn, had Mary, b. 10 Mar. 1648, Sarah, 15 June 1650; Hannah, 22 Dec. 1652, d. at 11 yrs.; Rebecca, 2 May 1655; Thomas, 1 Sept. 1657; Abigail, 14 May 1659; Margaret, 23 Oct. 1662; Benjamin, 20 Apr. 1669; Hannah, again, 1 July 1673; and he d. 11 Sept. 1689; his w. d. 29 July preced. tho. Stiles, 720, makes it 14 Dec. 1703. An idle tradit. reports that he m. Abigail, wid. of Rev. John Warham, and had two ds. He was rep. at 22 sess. and an Assist. 1685, a captain in the war with k. Philip, [[vol. 3, p. 269]] and memb. of the Council of war. His eldest d. m. 10 Dec. 1664, John Maudsley, as Stiles correct. says, 703, yet 721, under Newberry, calls him Marshall; Sarah m. 4 June 1668, Preserved Clap; Abigail m. 8 Jan. 1684, Ephraim Howard; Margaret m. 23 May 1689, Return Strong; and Hannah m. 17 Dec. 1703, John Wolcott. 

BENJAMIN, Windsor, youngest s. of the preced. m. 3 Mar. 1690, Hannah, d. of Thomas Dewey of Westfield, had Benjamin, b. 31 Jan. 1692; Roger, June 1706; Sarah, 3 Feb. 1710; and the f. d. 3 Nov. foll. JOHN, Windsor, an early sett. prob. rem. or d. bef. mid. age, was br. of the preced. JOSEPH, Windsor, br. of the preced. d. early or rem. perhaps; but one of the s. of his f. was call. prob. to go home to loft. prop. of the testator. RICHARD, Weymouth, freem. 1645, by w. Sarah had Tryal, Joseph, and Dorcas, beside Benjamin, b. 22 May 1660. In this yr. he purch. ld. at Malden, and rem. thither, made his imperfect will 20 Mar. 1685, and his inv. has date of 7 Apr. foll. Benjamin was prob. d. long bef. his f. as also was d. Martha, wh. d. May 1676. Of the three nam. in the will, Joseph was d. bef. 1702, when the wid. Sarah was liv. and Tryal, and Dorcas, wh. m. I think, Joseph Burrill, and she had been adminx. hav. by will of the f. most of his prop. but charg. to take care of her mo. 

THOMAS, Dorchester, may have come in the Mary and John 1630, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, rep. 1635, was engag. to go with Warham and most of his cong. to plant Windsor, but d. bef. the migrat. by his will of 1 Dec. 1635, of wh. abstr. is in Geneal. Reg. VII. 29, leav. large prop. of wh. L.200 to w. Jane, beside what she brot. at m. and residue equally to childr. exc. that the three youngest ds. should ea. have L.50 less than the others. Instead of L.50, as I had read some yrs. bef. Mr. Trask, who usually is a careful copier of the old writings, gives 50s. in that abstr. wh. might, in case of some petty estate, seem large enough. This may have affected his eyesight, as the fact of great prop. on my reexamination, wh. led to conforming my first transcript, possib. may have influenced me to judge, that so rich a man would not make so poor a differ. betw. his ds. The inv. tak. 28 Jan. foll. (includ. ld. in Eng. at £300) was of L.1520, 4, 7. Sarah m. 8 Nov. 1640, Henry Wolcott; Mary m. 13 June 1644, Daniel Clarke; Rebecca was sec. w. of Rev. John Russell of Hadley; and Hannah m. Rev. Thomas Hanford, and d. early. THOMAS, Windsor, perhaps s. of the preced. d. 12 June 1644. THOMAS, Dover 1671. 

THOMAS, Windsor, s. of Benjamin, m. 12 Mar. 1667 (but Stiles says, 12 Mar. 1676) Ann Ford, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Thomas, b. 20 Jan. 1678; Hannah, 10 Feb. 1680; Thomas, again, 22 Mar. 1683; Joseph, 24 Oct. 1684; and Benjamin, 18 Feb. 1687; and d. 20 (30, acc. Stiles) Apr. 1688. Malden, s. prob. eldest, of Richard, was a soldier in Turner's comp. [[vol. 3, p. 270]] 1676, at Hadley, and in the Falls fight, by w. Priscilla had Nathaniel; John, b. 28 Mar. 1686; Mehitable, 7 Sept. 1688; and Mary, 13 Mar. 1690; in wh. yr. he was made freem. and he d. 9 Dec. 1705. Nathaniel had admin. of the est.

Andros. Hutch. I. 354. Prob. he was not an oppressor.

NEWBY, GEORGE, Boston, by w. Mary had John, b. 25 Dec. 1680. I think he had sec. w. Elizabeth WILLIAM, a passeng. in the Mary and John from London 1634, wh. took the o. of supremacy and alleg. 16 Apr. 1634, bound for N. E. but where he pitched his tent first or last, is unkn.

Rachel, 2 1/2 yrs. and John, 9 mos. liv. aft. at Braintree, and. d. 27 May 1692, "upwards-off 100 yrs. old," as was fondly told, tho. the gr.st more moderate in its exaggera. says aged 10 yrs. but prob. only 87; had Hannah, bapt. 15 Oct. 1637; Mary, b. 31 Mar. 1640; Sarah, 24 May 1643, Judith, 16 Jan. 1646; Peter, 16 May 1648; Abigail, 16 July 1651; Leah, 30 July 1654; and Elizabeth 26 Aug. 1658, when the folly of tradit. would make her mo. over 66 yrs. old.

SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of the first Jacob, was engag. in the sad expedit. of Sir William Phips against Quebec, shipwreck. on return. from the abortive serv. in the lower part of the St. Lawrence, tak. prison. by the Ind. and kept one yr. got among the Christian enemy, and was near five yrs. abs. from home; by w.

Nov. 1689, but aft. the yr. came in. THOMAS, Waterbury, s. of the preced. m. 5 Nov. 1679, Elizabeth d. of Simon Wrotham; had Thomas, b. 1 Oct. 1681, bapt. 14 May 1682, when his w. join the ch.; Simon, b. 1 Apr. bapt. 24 June 1683; Susanna, bapt. 24 Apr. 1687; Joseph, bapt. 2 June 1689; and Elizabeth 29 Nov. bapt. 31 Dec. 1693; beside Sarah, 1 Jan. 1699; and Esther 1705. He in 1686 was one of the petitnrs. for estab. that planta. call. Matatock. Seven of this name had been gr. in 1834 at Harv. and ten at Yale.

NEWGATE, or NEWDIGATE, JOHN, Boston 1632, merch. b. 1580, in Southwark, near London bridge, brot. w. Ann with childr. b. in Eng. here had Hannah, b. bapt. 6 Aug. 1633, d. at 5 mos.; Hannah, again, bapt. 19 July 1635, tho. blunder in town rec. makes her b. 1 Aug. aft.; was freem. 4 Mar. 1635, constable, rep. 1638, oft. a selectman, d. 1665. [[vol. 3, p. 273]]

Of his ch. we can hardly speak with certainty. Prob. Joshua, wh. d. 12 Nov. 1658, at Boston, was the oldest, and h. of that Elizabeth N. call. on adm. to our ch. 30 Mar. 1634, "d.-in-law to our sis. Ann N." Elizabeth prob. the eldest d. m. John Oliver, and aft. his d. m. 14 Mar. 1649, Edward Jackson; Sarah, ano d. m. Peter Oliver, br of the h. of her sis. and d. Oct. 1692; Nathaniel, b. a. 1627; and Hannah, the youngest, m. 22 Feb. 1653, Simon Lynde, was nam. in the will of her mo. 6 Aug. 1676 pro. 8 Apr. 1679; but her gr.ch. Elizabeth and Nathaniel Lynde, and Nathaniel N. of London are ment. His will, of 25 Nov. 1664, with codic. of 8 May foll. is in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 333. NATHANIEL, Boston, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. ar. co. 1646, went home, prob. bef. m. there had Nathaniel, a merch. in London, by his w. Isabel, wh. surv. him, and in 1671, was w. of John Johnson of London. Farmer says some of the descend. write the name Newdigate, as was here done occasionally.

NEWGROVE, JOHN, Dover 1648.

NEWHALL, ANTHONY, oft. confus. with Newell, Lynn 1636, some time of Salem, d. 31 Jan. 1657, had John, and, perhaps, other childr. for his will of 14 Jan. pro. 31 Mar. 1657, ment. gr.ch. Richard and Elizabeth Hood. JOHN, Lynn, s. of Anthony, m. 31 Dec. 1676, Elizabeth Normanton, had, perhaps, issue, but ano. JOHN, Lynn, m. 3 Feb. 1657, Elizabeth Payton, wh. d. 22 Oct. 1677, had Nathaniel, b. 3 Apr. 1658; Sarah, 22 Aug. 1662; John, 11 Oct. 1664, perhaps d. young; Rebecca, 6 Dec. 1670; Mary, 27 Sept. 1673; Priscilla, 24 Nov. 1676; and a ch. 9 Oct. 1677, d. same day; and by ano. w. it is said, had Hannah, 6 Mar. 1680; and John, again, 13 Oct. 1681, d. in 3 wks. so that one is daunted at the proximity of the two Johns and Elizabeth Sarah m. 3 Mar. 1680, Timothy Breed. A third JOHN, of Lynn, m. 18 June 1677, Esther, d. of William Bartram, had Elizabeth b. 12 May 1678; Sarah, 15 Feb. 1680, d. in few days; Jonathan, 25 Dec. 1681; Sarah, again, 23 Jan. 1683; and Jeremiah, 12 Feb. 1685. One of these Johns was freem. 1684, and two in 1691, of wh. one is mark. sen. and the other ens. But Lewis provides for a JOHN, of Lynn, much earlier, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. to m. 10 Apr. 1646, Sarah Lewis. Some doubt rises in my mind bec. I kn. not whose d. she was or could be. JOSEPH, Lynn, s. of Thomas, freem. 1690, had Jemima, b. Dec. 1678; and Thomas, 16 Jan. 1681. He was, perhaps, the first Thomas, and may be that Joseph who perish. in the gr. snow storm 29 and 30 Jan. 1705. Jemima m. Benjamin Very of Salem. NATHANIEL, Lynn, s. of Thomas, is prob. the freem. of 1691, call. junr. but NATHANIEL, s. of John, is prob. that freem. 1691, call. sen. 

THOMAS, Lynn 1630, Mr. Lewis thinks, brot. John, had Thomas, the first Eng. ch. b. in that town. His w. d. 25 Sept. 1665, and he d. 25 [[vol. 3, p. 274]] May 1674. His will, of 1 Apr. 1668, pro. 1 July 1674, names two s. John, and Thomas, ds. Susanna, w. of Richard Haven, and her five ch. Joseph, Richard, Sarah, Nathaniel, and Moses; and Mary, w. of Thomas Brown, and her ch. not nam. them. THOMAS, Lynn, s. of the preced. m. says Lewis, 29 Sept. 1652, Elizabeth d. of Robert (but I prefer Nicholas) Potter, had Joseph, b. 22 Sept. 1658; Nathaniel, 17 Mar. 1660; Elizabeth 21 Mar. 1662, d. at 3 yrs.; Elisha, 3 Nov. 1665; Elizabeth again, 22 Oct. 1667; Mary, 18 Feb. 1670; Samuel, 19 Nov. 1672.; and Rebecca, 17 July 1675; and he was bur. 1 Apr. 1687, in 57th yr. More descend. remain of this than any other fam. in the town. THOMAS, Malden, by w. Rebecca, wh. d. 26 May 1725, had Lydia, b. 17 Apr. 1687; Samuel, 26 Apr. 1689; and he d. 13 July 1728.

NEWLAND, ANTHONY, Salisbury 1650, soon rem. prob. for the name is not aft. seen there, and may be the foll. ANTHONY, Taunton, s. of Jeremiah, m. 16 Dec. 1682, Esther Austin. HENRY, Taunton 1666. JEREMIAH, Taunton, had Anthony, b. 1 Aug. 1657. JOHN, Sandwich 1643, perhaps s. of William. WILLIAM, Sandwich, had rem. thither from Lynn 1637, was freem. of the Col. 1641, rep. 1642, 3, and 4, but 3 Oct. 1659, disfranch. for abetting Quakers; m. 19 May 1648, Rose Holloway, had Mary, b. 16 Apr. 1649; John; and Mercy, wh. m. an Edwards, and had admin. of the est. of her f. 26 June 1694. One William is enumerat. among the soldiers of Gallup's comp. in the sad expedit. of Phips. against Quebec, 1690, in Geneal. Reg. IX. 354, but the more correct roll in XIII. has it not.

NEWMAN, ANTIPAS, Wenham, s. of Rev. Samuel, b. 15 Oct. 1627, in Eng. began to pr. 1657, but was not ord. until Dec. 1663, m. 1658, Elizabeth d. of the younger Gov. John Winthrop had John, b. 7 Dec. 1660; Samuel, 7 Sept. 1666; Elizabeth 15 June 1668; Sybel, 10 Mar. 1670; and Waitstill, 13 Dec. 1671; and d. 15 Oct. 1672. He was one of those min. who sustain. the erection of Boston 3d ch. by separat. from the first, for the deception practis. in obtain. Davenport from New Haven. Hutch. I 273. The wid. m. Zerubbabel Endicott; and Sybel m. John Edwards of Boston. BENJAMIN, Ipswich 1678, s. of Thomas. DANIEL, Stamford 1670. FRANCIS, New Haven 1638, an Assist. 1653 and aft. until made Gov. 1658, to his d. 18 Nov. 1660. He also serv. in the import. place of Commr. of the Unit. Col. 1654 and 8, and in the troublesome relations with the Dutch of New Netherlands. In his barn was form. the compact, June 1639, or civil const. by wh. the Col. many yrs. was ruled His wid. m. says Emery, Rev. Nicholas Street, yet we are ign. who was her f. or what was her name. Of ch. I find only Elizabeth wh. m. Thomas Knowles, and next, Nicholas Knell. 

JOHN, perhaps br. of Thomas, came in the Mary and John, 1634, but at what place he sett. is unkn. [[vol. 3, p. 275]] yet conject. favors Ipswich; but he was of Wenham 1690. JOHN, Ipswich 1648, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. had come 1634, with his f. in the Mary and John, and may be the same as the preced. JOHN, Gloucester, s. of Antipas, a physician, m. Ruth, eldest d. of Rev. John Emerson, had issue, but details are unkn. JOHN, a serj. in capt. Turner's comp. station. at Hadley, must have come from the E. and prob. from Ipswich, at last, a John N. junr. was there 1679, owning commons. JOHN, Oyster Bay, L. I. 1685, may have been a propr. at New Haven 1669, and again in 1685, possib. a s. of the Gov. NOAH, Rehoboth, s. of Rev. Samuel, while he succeed. m. 30 Dec. 1669, Joanna, d. of Rev. Henry Flint, had Sybel, b. 31 Mar. 1675, d. in few mos.; beside Samuel, wh. was bur. 2 Oct. 1677; and Henry, H. C. 1687, librarian at the coll. and agent in Eng. for the Prov. of N. H. and d. 16 or 26 Apr. 1678, but Col. Rec. says, bur. 18. The wid. by her will of 7 Nov. 1678, pro. 24 Feb. 1680, gave her est. to Henry, but in case of his d. to childr. of her br. Rev. George Shove, who had m. Hopestill Newman, sis. of Noah. 

RICHARD, New Haven 1656, possib. a s. of the Gov. had Samuel, b. 1 July that yr.; John; Sarah; both bapt. 1665, tho. the officer wh. kept that unsatisfact. rec. gives no day, nor mo.; and Mercy, b. 7 Dec. 1665, bapt. prob. 28 Jan. foll. tho. the rec. names wrong day, we are sure, wh. prob. d. young; may have been some time at Stamford, a. 1666, and was propr. at New Haven 1685. ROBERT, came in the Mary and John, 1634, to Boston, but in what part of Mass. he sett. is unkn.; rem. to New Haven, in 1638 or 9, was a man of good est. one of the seven pillars at gather. of the ch. and a deac.; had Bethia, bapt. 2 Oct. 1642; and Grace, prob. 25 Oct. (a wrong day being giv. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 361) 1646, d. under 4 yrs.; went home and was, 1657, a vintner in London. 

SAMUEL, Rehoboth, b. at Banbury, Oxfordsh. bapt. 24 May 1602, s. of Richard, was matricul. of Trinity Coll. Oxford, 3 Mar. 1620 in his 17th yr. but on proceed. A. B. 17 Oct. of that yr. is titled in Wood's Fasti, I. 392, of St. Edmund Hall, had a very small benefice, 1625, at Midhope, part of the parish of Ecclesfield, in the W. Riding of Yorksh. to wh. his successor was presented ten yrs. aft. He came to N. E. perhaps in 1636, tho. Elizabeth aged 24, who may have been his w. or sis. came in the James from London, 1635; yet Mather, III. c. 15, who, in three whole folio pages of double column, by his multifarious nothingness, gives less than six lines of facts, makes him come in 1638, spend a yr. and a half at Dorchester, five yrs. at Weymouth, and nineteen at R. Dr. Harris did not find his name at Dorchester, but he was adm. freem. 13 Mar. 1639 (yet casual. as is plain, without prefix of respect), no doubt then of Weymouth, where his d. Hopestill was b. 29 Aug. or Nov. 1641, as we believe discordant rec. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 348, or IX. 171; and, perhaps, other ch. Greatly does he deserve [[vol. 3, p. 276]] esteem for his serv. in framing the Concordance, said to have been writ. by light of burning, pine knots. He suffer. more than his temper could bear, by the spreading of the antipaedobapt. in his diocese, and d. 5 July 1663, aged 61; in the will of 18 Nov. 1661, names w. Sybel, s. Samuel, Antipas, Noah, to wh. he gave his libr. and d. Hopestill, or Hope, wh. m. 12 July 1664, Rev. George Shove, and d. 7 Mar. 1674. Patience, an elder d. m. 3 Oct. 1649, Nathaniel Sparhawk of Cambridge. For those who have not easy access to the Magn. Dr.Allen furnishes the wondrous story of Newman's predict. of the hour of his own d. with happy exactness, and Dr. Eliot, in his Biog. Dict. has fully vindica. Mather from the discredit that might be attach. to his page by this. Now to prove what Eliot tells of the acco. being sent to Eng. as well as spread thro. our country, no doubt (when the immortal author of the Magnalia was but few mos. old) we may look into the Diary of Samuel Pepys, and find the "good story of Mr. Newman" to be matter of conversat. in Jan. 1667-8, bef. our N. E. ecclesiast. hist. had filled his six yrs. See p. 354 of Lord Braybrook's Pepys, Vol. III. Ed. 4th. 

SAMUEL, Rehoboth, s. prob. the eldest, of the preced. b. 6 July 1625, in Eng. m. 6 Dec. 1659, Bethia, d. of Francis Chickering of Dedham, had Mary, b. 3 Jan. 1661; Bathsheba, 19 Jan. 1662; wh. both d. young; Samuel, 21 Feb. 1663; David, 1 Nov. 1665; John, 1 July 1668; Hopestill, 19 July 1669; Mary, again, 7 Nov. 1670; and Antipas, 29 Mar. 1673, d. in few mos.; and Rehoboth gr.stone calls the w╒s. name Bathsheba, wh. I distrust; yet the town rec. may be wrong; m. for sec. w. 2 May 1689, Hannah, d. of John Bunker, and for third w. aft. 1690, Theodosia, wid. of capt. Noah Wiswall, d. of John Jackson, was deac. and rep. for Swanzey 1692. He d. 14 Dec. 1710. Mary m. 2 Jan. 1699, Samuel Woodcock. SAMUEL, Rehoboth, s. of the preced. m. 8 Oct. 1696, Hannah Kenrick, wh. d. 8 Apr. 1718, had Noah, b. 1 Sept. 1697; Samuel, 30 July 1699; Hannah, 29 July 1701; Margaret, 8 Apr. 1704; Ann, 7 Apr. 1705; and John, 8 Dec. 1706; and d. 25 June 1747. 

SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of Richard, m. 15 Feb. 1688, Elizabeth Rose of Branford, perhaps d. of Robert the sec. and d. next yr. without ch. His wid. d. the yr. foll. and his br. John and sis. Sarah inherit. his prop. SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of Richard, m. 15 Feb. 1688, Elizabeth Rose of Branford, perhaps d. of the sec. Robert, and d. 1689, without ch. His wid. d. next yr. and the prop. fell to br. John and sis. Sarah. THOMAS, Ipswich 1639, had come 1634, in the Mary and John, hav. tak. o. of supremacy and alleg. 16 Apr. d. 1676, leav. wid. wh. d. 19 Nov. 1679, and s. Thomas, John, and Benjamin. WILLIAM, Stamford 1665, may have rem. to Narragansett aft. 1669. Five of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and two at other N. E. coll.

NEWMARCH, JOHN, Ipswich 1638, at Rowley perhaps 1643, and back to I. 1648; m. Martha, d. of Zaccheus Gould, had, as is learn. from his will of 14 Feb. 1696, pro. 26 Apr. 1697, John, Thomas, Zacheus, Martha, wh. m. 1675, Samuel Balch, Phebe Pennywell, and Sarah Berry. It made w. Martha extrix. and nam. gr.ch. Thomas Gould, and Martha Balch, tho. it might be hard to find the gr.ch. Thomas Gould. JOHN, Kittery, H. C. 1690, wh. d. 1754, was, perhaps, a gr.s. and it may be that Joseph, H. C. 1728, wh. d. 1765, a couns. of N. H. in 1754, was s. of this min. Sometimes it is Newmarsh.

NEWPORT, RICHARD, Boston, by w. Ruth had Ruth, b. 27 Apr. 1668.
