NORCROSS,JEREMIAH, Watertown 1642, perhaps the freem. 1653, whose bapt. name is not giv. on the rec. d. in Eng. 1657; in his will, made 15 Sept. 1654, pro. 6 Oct. 1657, beside s. Nathaniel, and Richard, he names d. Sarah, w. of Francis Macy, tho. Bond, 376, reads the name Merry or Massey, s. Richard, d. Mary, and John Smith, s. of his w. Adrean, and speaks of gr.childr. in Eng. JEREMIAH, a soldier in Philip's war, under capt. Turner, 1676, was s. of Richard, and gr.s. of the preced.; d. says Bond, 30 Nov. 1717. JOHN, Cambridge 1642, Bond thinks was br. of the preced. and refer. to in his will; but no more is heard of him.
NATHANIEL, Salem 1639, join. the ch. There [[vol. 3, p. 287]] 1641, freem. 10 May 1643, was, Bond says, that s. of the first Jeremiah, b. in Eng. bred at Catharine Hall in the Univ. of Cambridge, where he had his A. B. 1636-7, liv. 1647 at Watertown, and prob. preach. a little, hav. declin. the request of the first sett. of Lancaster, two or three yrs. bef. and prob. went back to Eng. to exercise his faculties, may have had a ch. at Walsingham, in Norf'k. whence, says Calamy, he was eject. at the great day of triumph aft. the restorat. Winthrop II. 161.
NATHANIEL, Watertown, s. of Richard the first, m. 20 June 1687, Mehitable, d. of William Hagar, had Mehitable, b. 4 Feb. 1691. His w. d. 5 Apr. foll. and by sec. w. Susanna, d. of Philip Shattuck, of course gr.d. of his mo.-in-law, he had Nathaniel, 20 Dec. 1695; Philip, 5 Mar. 1698; and Susanna, 26 Feb. 1701. He d. perhaps bef. his f. RICHARD, Watertown, s. of Jeremiah, b. in Eng. a. 1621, m. 24 June 1650, Mary Brooks, had Mary, b. 27 Aug. 1652, who d. 19 Oct. 1661; Jeremiah, 3 Mar. 1655; Sarah, 28 Dec. 1657, Richard, 4 Aug. 1660; Mary, again, 10 July 1663; Nathaniel, 18 Dec. 1665; and Samuel, 4 May 1671; was freem. 1652, but Bond calls the yr. 1653, taught a town sch. says Bond, 49 yrs. at least. His w. d. 24 Feb. 1672; and he m. 18 Nov. 1673, Susanna, wid. of William Shattuck, who d. 11 Dec. 1686, and he had 3d w. Mary, and d. 1709. His will ment. s. Richard, Samuel, and Jeremiah, d. Mary, unm. and 6 ch. of his dec. d. Sarah. Sarah m. 23 Sept. 1680, Joseph Child; and Mary m. 2 Apr. 1713, John Stearns as sec w.

He was sch.master, like his f. and like him, liv. to good old age.
NORCUT, or NORCOTT, DANIEL, Boston, sail. in the Pied Cow, 1635, for Eng. and bec. she was not heard of next yr. admin. of his est. was giv. to John Coggan, who prob. was a creditor, Jan. 1637.

Possib. he was of Boston 1650, to witness the will of Robert Saltonstall.
NORDEN, NATHANIEL, Marblehead, a capt. and freem. 1690, also rep. same yr. and the former. *SAMUEL, Boston, shoemaker, perhaps br. of the preced. by w. Joanna, had Samuel, b. 8 Nov. 1651; Nathaniel, 27 Nov 1653; and Benjamin, 15 June 1656; and his w. d. 29 June; [[vol. 3, p. 288]] but by sec. w. m. 1656, Elizabeth d. of Philemon Pormort, had Elizabeth 2 Sept. 1657; Susanna, 26 Nov. 1659; Joseph, 8 Feb. 1664; Joshua, 3 July 1666; Mary, 22 Mar. 1669; and Isaac, 8 Mar. 1672; was freem. 1666.
NORMAN, HUGH, Plymouth, m. 8 Oct. 1639, Mary White; rem. to Yarmouth bef. 1643, had Elizabeth wh. was drown. 28 May 1648, aged 6 yrs.; rem. again to Barnstable. JOHN, Salem 1631, by w. Arabella had John, b. Aug. 1637, bapt. 4 Mar. 1638; Lydia, 15 Jan. bapt. 23 Feb. 1640; Ann or Hannah, 15 Jan. bapt. 1 May 1642; Arabella, 14 Feb. bapt. Apr. 1644; Martha, May 1646; Richard, 12 Oct. 1651; Joseph, 8 Sept. 1653, d. soon; and Joseph, again, 7 Sept. 1656; was in 1640, at Jeffrey's creek, now Manchester, of Marblehead 1648, and back again to Salem; d. 1673, in his 60th yr. and his wid. d. 1679. His d. Arabella, m. Sept. 1664, John Baldwin. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the preced. m. 17 Nov. 1663, Mary, eldest d. of George Ropes, had John, b. 19 Nov. 1664, d. at 3 days; John, again, 12 Dec. 1666; Mary, 14 Feb. 1669; Richard, 20 Feb. 1674; and Abigail, 10 July 1677.
JOHN, Salem, s. of Richard, m. Abigail, d. of George Ropes, had, perhaps, by a farmer w. John, b. a. 1660, and prob. is the man wh. was tak. in the Dutch war, 1667. He d. 6 May 1713, aged 76, says the gr.st. rec. and his wid. Mary, I suppose d. 2 Oct. 1713, aged 67. Ano. JOHN, perhaps gr.s. of the first John, m. Sarah, youngest d. of Moses Maverick. RICHARD, Salem, perhaps br. of John the first, came in 1626, as Felt thinks, prob. from Dorchester in Eng. with s. Richard, to ea. of wh. he assigns that yr. but John, wh. was elder, may have been left in Eng. Farmer thinks he had also William, liv. at Marblehead 1648; and says the elder Richard d. 1683, tho. it may seem as prob. that it was the s. of that name, who he says was b. 1623, and liv. 1672 at Marblehead. It seems to me, that the elder d. prob. bef. this last date, and that sec. RICHARD was the freem. of 1680. He m. 13 Jan. 1675, Elizabeth d. of Henry Bullock.
SAMUEL, Barnstable, perhaps s. of Hugh, m. Nov. 1697, by Mr. Hamblin's extr. from the rec. wid. Casley, but of wh. she was wid. is not kn. THOMAS, Boston 1674, prob. rem. to Topsfield, where he was liv. when made freem. 1681. TIMOTHY, Salem, had Mary, b. 10 Nov. 1694.
NORRIS, EDWARD, Salem, fourth min. at that ch. ord. 18 Mar. 1640, had join. the Boston ch. 21 July 1639, as did next mo. his w. Elinor; yet his d. Mary unit. with the ch. of Roxbury soon aft.; freem. 13 May 1640; d. as Farmer has it, 10 Apr. 1659, aged a. 70; but 23 Dec. on more prob. auth. of John Hull, who calls the age a. "fourscore." His will, of 9 Dec. 1657, was pro. 27 June 1660. Mather includes him in his first classis, yet omits his name of bapt. He was ord. by a Bp. we may be sure in the last days of Elizabeth or first of James, but we have no report of his cure. EDWARD, SALEM, 1639, s. of the preced. sch.master 1640 to 1676, d. 1684, in 70th yr.; by w. Dorothy had Edward, bapt. 18 Oct. 1657; and Elizabeth; perhaps more, but these outliv. him. EDWARD, Salem, s. of the preced. m. 3 Dec. 1685, Mary Symonds, prob. d. of James, had Mary, b. 14 Apr. 1687; and perpet. the name, the eighth Edward being recent. an active man.
NICHOLAS, Exeter [[vol. 3, p. 289]] 1666, of wh. I kn. nothing, but that he took, 30 Nov. 1677, the o. of alleg. and in 1690, desir. jurisdict. of Mass.
NORTH, JAMES, Northampton 1677, s. of John, m. Sarah Smith, d. 25 July 1689, leav. ch. Sarah, b. 1679; and Mary, 1687. His wid. d. 1727. JOHN, Farmington, an early sett. prob. he who came 1635, aged 20, in the Susan and Ellen, to Boston, was freem. of Conn. 1657; had Thomas; John, b. a. 1641; Samuel and Mary, tw. 1643, but one acco. makes Mary 2 yrs. later than Samuel; James, 1647; Sarah, bapt. 18 Dec. 1653; Nathaniel, 29 June 1656; Lydia, 9 May 1658; and Joseph, 18 Mar. 1660; d. late in 1691, or early in 1692, his inv. being of 12 Feb. in this yr. Mary m. John Searle; and Sarah m. the sec. Matthew Woodruff of Farmington. JOHN, Wethersfield, s. of the preced. m. 1672, Susanna, eldest d. of Robert Francis, d. 1682, leav. John, aged 10, Mary, 8; Susanna, 6; and Sarah, 4. Miss Caulkins gives reason for presuming he practis. physic, in 1662, at New London.
JOSEPH, Farmington 1690, s. of the first John, d. 1731, without issue. But his wid. Martha, d. of Thomas Porter, m. John Porter, as sec. w. RICHARD, Salisbury 1640, one of the first proprs. freem. 2 June 1641; rem. to Salem, there made his will 1649, in wh. w. Ursula, ch. Mary, Sarah, wh. m. an Oldham, and Susanna, are ment. Mary was w. of Thomas Jones of Gloucester, and d. 4 Feb. 1682, as his wid.; and Susanna, of George Martin of S. SAMUEL, Farmington, s. of the first John, d. 1682, leav. John, m. 3 Jan. 1667, Hannah, d. of John Norton, aged 13; Samuel, 10; Thomas, 8; and Hannah, 4. THOMAS, New Haven 1644, had by w. Mary, d. of Walter Price of Newington Butts, near London, wh. had been wid. of Philip Petersfield of Holborn, three ch. Thomas, b. 30 June 1650; John, 13 Mar. 1652; and Batshua, 25 Dec. 1654. She outliv. him, and m. Thomas Dunck of Saybrook, and d. in Eng. whither she went 1670, to recover est. descend. to her, leav. D. to get ano. w. bef. 10 July 1677.
THOMAS, Farmington, m. Hannah, d. of Thomas Newall, had John, Thomas, Hannah, Nathaniel, Mary, Joseph, and Rebecca, tw. bapt. 31 Dec. 1693; Lydia, 1 Mar. 1696; Sarah, and Ebenezer. THOMAS, Hadley 1678, took o. of alleg. 8 Feb. next.
NORTHAM, JAMES, Hartford 1655, may have been, 10 yrs. bef. at Wethersfield, freem. 1658, was engag. next yr. with the seceders, who would rem. to Hadley, but he was not able to fulfil his design, and d. bef. 1662. He m. wid. Isabel Catlin, had only Samuel, yet it may be he was by a former w. His wid. rem. to New Jersey, but aft. to Hadley, where she m. Joseph Baldwin. SAMUEL, Hatfield 1674, s. of the preced. m. that yr. Mary, d. of John Dickinson, had Samuel, b. 4 May 1675; Mary, 7 Jan. 1677; Elizabeth 1 Apr. 1680; and Jonathan, 18 May 1682; rem. to Deerfield, but in 1715, with s. Jonathan, was of Colchester, where he d.
NORTHCUT, WILLIAM, Yarmouth 1643, then able to bear arms, may have been f. of bef. ment. W. Norcut; but in my guess, was the same person.
NORTHEND, EZEKIEL, Rowley 1645; was b. a. 1622, m. Edna, wid. of Richard Bailey, had beside four ds. John, b. 1658; and Ezekiel, 1666; was selectman 1691. His d. Elizabeth m. Humphrey Hobson, and [[vol. 3, p. 290]] next, Thomas Gage; Edna m. Thomas Lambert. EZEKIEL, Rowley, perhaps s. of the preced. a corpo. in 1691, when he was the richest man in town; m. 10 Sept. of that yr. Dorothy, d. of Henry Sewall of Newbury, had John, b. 1692; Ezekiel, 1697; Samuel, 1707; beside six ds. Possib. some were by sec w. He was rep. 1715-17. JOHN, Wethersfield, one of the first sett. rem. prob. to Stamford, where final s was added.
NORTHEY, JOHN, Marblehead 1648, was b. a. 1607, and prob. f. of that JOHN of Scituate, wh. serv. in Philip's war, became a Quaker, and m. 1675, Sarah, d. of Henry Ewell, had James, b. 1687, of wh. is still a line of descend. at S.
NORTHROP, NORTHRUP, NORTROP, or NORTHUP, JOSEPH, Milford, an early sett. d. 1669, prob. for his will is of 1 Sept. that yr. He m. I presume, Mary, d. of Francis Norton of Milford, had Joseph, Samuel, Jeremiah, and John. His wid. perhaps m. again, for in her will, so late as 26 Jan. 1683, she names her ch. Zophan, Daniel, William, and Mary, but none of those ment. by her h╒s. will. JOSEPH, Milford, perhaps s. of the preced. prop. for freem. 1670. SAMUEL, Milford, prob. br. of the preced. prop. for freem. 1671. Twelve proprs. of this name were counted in 1713, at that place, includ. two or three wids. STEPHEN, Providence 1645, adm. freem. 1658, and, perhaps, of Wickford 1674.
NORTON, BONUS, Ipswich, s. of William, had w. Mary Goodhue, d. of Joseph, m. bef. 1690, who outliv. him, and ch. John; Mary; Sarah; William, b. 9 May 1691; Joseph, 17 Nov. 1695; Samuel, 12 Sept. 1699; Elizabeth; Lucy; and Ann, but the order is unkn. for the most. He rem. to Hingham in his mid. life, went last to Hampton,there d. 30 Apr. 1718, aged 61, as the gr.st. tells. DAVID, Boston, said by tradit. to have m. Phebe, sis. of the third Richard Templar, but I see no date. He liv. in Blackhorse lane, tho. no time is ment. yet is he among inhab. tax. 1695.
FRANCIS, Portsmouth 1631, a steward, sent by Mason and other patentees, rem. to Charlestown, says Frothingham, as early as 1637, was freem. 18 May 1642, ar. co. 1643, a capt. and rep. many yrs. betw. 1647 and 61, d. 11 July 1667.

John Long; Mary m. 30 Oct. 1656, Joseph Noyes, Elizabeth m. 21 Sept. 1671, Timothy Symmes; Deborah m. 24 Sept. 1668 Zechary Hill, and next, Matthew, 4 Mar.; and Sarah was unm. FRANCIS, Wethersfield, one of the first sett. but was of Milford 1660, thence m. 1662, to New Haven, where he was drown. 1667, leav. no ch. but in his will of 1666, names cous. i. e. neph. John N. cous. John Nash, s. Joseph Northrop with his s. Jeremiah. FREEGRACE, Saco, eldest s. of George of Salem, serv. on the gr. jury 1662, but soon aft. rem. to Ipswich, was a serj. in Philip's war, of capt. Appleton's comp. k. by the Ind. 19 Oct. 1675, at Hatfield, then 40 yrs. old; had m. a d. of Roger Spencer, the capt. of S. perhaps had ch. but nothing is kn.
GEORGE, Salem, was prob. that carpenter who came in the fleet with Higginson, Apr. 1629, from London, freem. 14 May 1634, by w. Mary had Freegrace, b. prob. 1635, but whose bapt. I find not; John, bapt. Oct. 1637; Nathaniel, May 1639; George, 28 Mar. 1641; rem. to [[vol. 3, p. 291]] Gloucester, was there selectman 1642, 3, and rep. 1642-4; and there Mary was b. 28 Feb. 1643; unless this were mistake, as to me seems prob. for Henry; Mehitable; Sarah; Hannah; and Abigail, 1651; rem. again, perhaps for short time, to Ipswich, but soon to Wenham, where was bapt. his d. Sarah, 14 Feb. 1647; and Elizabeth 7 Aug. 1653; and he d. 1659; leav. wid. Mary and those ten ch. His wid. m. 27 Feb. 1660, Philip Fowler. See Babson, 118. GEORGE, Suffield, s. of the preced. prob. may have first been of Ipswich, but more prob. at Salem, and rem. to I. where first five ch. were b. by w. Sarah, who d. 23 June 1682; he had George; Thomas, b. 1670; Nathaniel; Sarah; and Alice; but aft. gett. est. at S. then part of Springfield, 1674, rem. thither, and had Samuel, b. 22 Jan. 1680, d. soon; Samuel, again, 9 Apr. 1681, d. soon; and John, 12 June 1682, d. soon; he m. 20 June 1683, Mary or Mercy, wid. of John Gillett of Windsor, d. of the first Thomas Barber, had Mary, b. 18 Jan. 1685; Abigail, 14 Jan. 1687; Freegrace, 1 Jan. 1689; Joanna, 17 Mar. 1693; Elizabeth 31 Aug. 1695, d. young; and Elizabeth again, posthum. when nine others were liv. 19 Mar. 1697. He was freem. 1681, and selectman, and rep. 1693, and d. 15 Nov. 1696, and his wid. d. 31 Dec. 1725.
GEORGE, York 1680, perhaps s. of Henry, m. Mary, d. of Richard Foxwell of Scarborough; sw. alleg. 1680. HENRY, York 1656, was marshal of the Col. had, four yrs. earlier, sw. alleg. to Mass. but prob. went home next yr. His s. George had admin. 1679; yet the f. d. early in 1659, as in the inv. show. £103, 18, of date 2 Mar. HUMPHREY, Plymouth 1657, a Quaker, who prob. had come but few mos. bef. he was expel. from the Col. in Oct. being "found guilty of divers horrid errors," and driv. to R. I. There the quiet of tolerat. could not be long endur. and in the spring foll. he went back to court persecution, and at the June Court had the advantage of attract. attention eno. to be whip. imprison. and made to pay fees therefore; but the severity of that minor jurisdict. even aft. the death of Gov. Bradford, rose not to the sublime of folly exhibit. by Mass. and, I suppose, Humphrey went home in 1658, to avoid what he had first sought. Yet the infection was malign. eno. at Plymouth to drive Matherly and Cudworth from their high places of serv. Prob. he was no relat. of Rev. John, whose extreme virulence against this sect, was better suit. to the majority of our people than the new form of worship of the disciples. JAMES, New Haven 1640. JOHN, Charlestown, may have come in 1629, but certain. was here next yr. had gone to York, where Stone, on a trading voyage along shore, took him up in 1633, for a companion to Virginia, but near the mouth of Connecticut, the Pequots, in a quarrel, cut off the whole party. He was call. capt. in Charlestown. Winthrop I. 123.
JOHN, Ipswich, an eminant divine, s. of William, b. 6 May 1606, says Mather, [[vol. 3, p. 292]] at Starford, meaning, I think, Bishop Stortford, in Herts, bred at Peter House, in the Univ. of Cambridge, where I saw his subscriptions on tak. his A. B. 1623-4, and A. M. 1627, tho. by the Magn. it is said (with unusual confid. even for that work) he left the Univ. on occasion of disaster to his f.'s est. and bec. an usher to a sch. and curate at Starford. He was domestic chaplain to Sir William Masham in the neighb. Co. Essex, but could obt. no preferm. and dissatisf. with the formalities demand. in the ch. serv. emb. in 1634, to come to our country with Shepard, but they were compel. by a storm to go back, and he came later than S. next yr. reaching Plymouth aft. ano. terrible storm in ship with Gov. Winslow, being the Hopewell, capt. Babb, prob. in Oct. but he could not be content there, aft. teach. some mos. tho. earnest. desir. by the people. At Ipswich he was ord. 1636 freem. yet without prefix of resp. 17 May 1637, not long aft. d. of famous John Cotton was call. to make good his place in Boston, and instal. 23 July 1656.
In Feb. 1662 was sent with Bradstreet to make fair weather for our Col. in London, fulfill. his mission with skill, and came back in Sept. but as less kindly rec. here, especially by those who had desir. no such result, and d. 5 Apr. 1663, leav. w.
