He was rep. 20 yrs. and aft. that, 21 yrs. of the Counc. and d. 23 Sept. 1727. 

JOSEPH, Scituate, br. of the preced. m. 20 Nov. 1688, Dorothy Thomas, d. of Nathaniel, had Nathaniel, b. 30 Jan. 1690; James, 21 Jan. 1693; Deborah, 24 Apr. 1694; Mary, 20 Mar. 1696; Dorothy, 24 Apr. 1698; Elizabeth 2 Sept. 1700; Ann, 21 Sept. 1702; Bethia, 20 Nov. 1703; Delight, 19 Dec. 1706; Hannah, 10 Dec. 1709, d. at 16 yrs; Joseph, 1 Oct. 1712; and Rachel, 1 Dec. 1713; rem. to New London a. 1716, was in gr. esteem, and d. 11 June 1754, hav. made his will 9 Jan. preced. NICHOLAS, Dover, s. of Richard, had Nicholas, but his w. is not kn. He was k. by the Ind. in assault of the town, 26 July 1696, when his s. was tak. carr. off to Penobscot, and in short time releas. but liv. not long. 

RICHARD, Dover 1656, had been first at Boston, there, in May 1655, when adm. to be an inhab. call. a smith, prob. was only s. b. a. 1626, of Stephen of Glastonbury, Co. Somerset, who seems to have been elder br. of the first John; had in Nov. 1655 ld. at D. was selectman 1660, and had three ws. the first, Rose Stoughton, m. some yrs., bef. he was at D. From a MS. in the Brit. Museum, marked No. 6174 in the catal. of those call. "Additional," writ. by Sir Nicholas S. in wh. the latest date perceiv. is 1672, I found, she was his elder sis. b. a. 1629, and d. of Anthony, sent by his and her f. 1643, by capt. S. (no doubt our Israel), to America, and the MS, adds, "now liv. there, the w. of ________ Otis, with sev. ch." Of these ch. we learn not, for most, the exact date of b. and must not be confid. of the order; the names were Stephen, b. 1652; Rose; Richard; Nicholas; Solomon, 15 Oct. 1663, d. next yr.; Experience, 7 Nov. 1666; and Judith. Bef. 5 Nov. 1677, he had sec. w. Shuah, wid. of James Heard, on whose est. he was then admor. but no ch. of this m. is heard of. By third w. Grizzle, a young d. of James Warren, he had Hannah, b. 1689; and a d. 6 Mar. 1689, the subject of romantic story. He was k. by the Ind. 28 June 1689, with his d. Hannah, when his w. and the ch. of 3 mos, were tak. away to Canada. The ch. was bapt. by the French, who purch. her, and the mo. aft. m. a Frenchman, having two ch. and being left a wid. she came back to N. E. m. capt. Thomas Baker of Brookfield, for wh. and her suffer. the town made her gr. of ld. if she would not go again to Canada. Her former ghostly father wrote to preserve or recover his convert, but our Gov. Burnet took up the spiritual controversy, and the Romish priest failed. She liv. to 23 Feb. 1773. 

The mo. m. a Mr. Robitail at Montreal, and liv. to great age. The three elder ds. had been tak. at the same time, [[vol. 3, p. 325]] but were recapt. by fresh pursuit at Conway, on their route to Canada. Rose m. John Pinkham, had ten ch.; Experience m. Samuel Heard; and Judith m. John Tuttle, wh. was k. by the Ind. In the first, sec. and third generat. no fam. in N. E. I think, could match this of Richard O. for measure of calam. from war. 

RICHARD, Dover, s. of the preced. dissatisf. with the ch. was his f. has been 1663, proceed, further in dissent, bec. a Quaker, yet was wound by the Ind. 26 July 1696, when his br. Nicholas was k.; had w. Susanna, and ch. Rose; Richard; Rebecca, b. 11 July 1695; Stephen, 22 Aug. 1698; and Nicholas, 8 Apr. 1701; and d. that yr. His wid. m. 1703, John Varney. STEPHEN, Dover, br. of the preced. perhaps older, m. 16 Apr. 1674, Mary, d. of William Pitman, had Stephen, Nathaniel, and Mary; was k. by the Ind. 28 June 1689, the same time his f. and the s. were both carr. to Canada, there liv. and d. as good Catholics. STEPHEN, Scituate, s. of John the sec. m. 1685, Hannah, wh. d. 1 May 1729, only ch. of that John Ensign who gave her all his est. aft. d. of his mo. by will made the evening bef. he fell in the great battle of Rehoboth, 26 Mar. 1676; had Hannah, b. 16 May 1686; Mary, 7 July 1689; Ensign, 1691; John, 1694; Stephen, 3 Nov 1697; Isaac, 1699; Joseph, 1709; and Joshua, 1711; was a capt. d. 26 May or Aug. as the gr.st. may have var. read. 1733. His will was of 1729. Sixteen of the name had, in 1825, been gr. at Harv. as Farmer notes, and none at other N. E. coll. all descend. of John the sec. I believe. Mr. Otis, the assiduous antiquary of Yarmouth, from wh. I have gain. much knowl. of Scituate, Barnstable, and Yarmouth early sett. is deriv. from the first John, thro. five intermed. generat.

OTLEY, ABRAHAM, Lynn 1651. Adam, Lynn 1641, perhaps br. of the preced. ar. co. 1641, m. a d. of John Humfrey, Esquire, says Lewis. Hutch. Coll. 121. Perhaps it is the same as Utley.

OVELL, NATHANIEL., a cordwainer, from Dover, Co. Kent, came with a serv. a. 1636, as by an authent. docum. I read in the Hist. of Sandwich, Eng. appears; but where he sett. is unkn.

JOSIAH, Windsor or Simsbury, s. of the preced. m. 22 Oct. 1674, Mary, d. of John Osborn, had Josiah, b. 6 June 1675; Isaac, 4 June 1678, but Stiles, 731, is very differ.; Mary, 15 Feb. 1680; and Elizabeth MORGAN, Salem, m. July 1670, Elizabeth Dickinson, perhaps d. of Philemon, had John, b. 10 Mar. foll. I presume he liv. not long, as two nam. Elizabeth wid. of O. are seen at S. within three yrs. foll.

OXMAN, WILLIAM, Salem 1668, then 35 yrs. of age.

PABODIE. See PEABODY.

PACEY, or PACYE, NICHOLAS, Salem 1639, when Felt says he had gr. of ld.; join. the ch. 1650. Perhaps Catharine, of the same ch. 1641, was his w. Who was the unfortun. man procured to be unit. with Sarah, d. of Gov. Thomas Dudley, aft. her h. Benjamin Keayne had cast her off, neither Dudley nor capt. K. informs us, tho. both in their wills ment. her, as does also, in his will, young Thomas D. speak. of his aunt P. as if ignorant of her slender claims on his regard. Possib. it was Thomas P. named in the inv. of John Mills, as one of his debtors 1651.

PACKARD, JOHN, Bridgewater, s. of the first Samuel of the same, had Joseph, who sett. his old f.'s est. 1741; and Mitchell tells no more, but that his wid. d. 1761, very aged.

Samuel, Zaccheus, Elizabeth Mary, beside Hannah, Thomas, Jael, Israel, Debroah, Deliverance, and Nathaniel; but the order is not exact. indicat. for the most. Elizabeth m. 14 Nov. 1665, Thomas Alger of Taunton; Mary M. Richard Phillips of Weymouth; Hannah m. Thomas Randall; Jael m. 15 Nov. 1672, John Smith; Deborah m. Samuel Washburn; and Deliverance m.

PACKER, BENJAMIN, New London, s. of the first John, impress. for serv. in the French war, 1709, made his will, giv. his brs. James, Joseph, and sis. Rebecca, his est. and prob. d. soon aft.

John, Samuel, and Richard; by sec. w. Rebecca, wid. of Thomas Latham, d. of Hugh Wells, m. 24 June 1676, who surv. him, had James, bapt. 11 Sept. 1681; beside Joseph, Benjamin, and Rebecca, as Miss Caulkins in her Hist. judges. He d. 1689, and his wid. m. a Watson of Kingston, R. I. JOHN, New London, s. of the preced. m. Lydia, d. of Cary Latham, and d. 1701. SAMUEL, New London, s. prob. of the first John, m. Mary, d. of William Williams of the same. THOMAS, Salem, whose w. Hepzibah d. 22 Jan. 1685, aged 25 yrs. α THOMAS, Portsmouth 1686, a physician, from London, was col. judge of pro. and a counsel. in 1719, d. 1728. His w. Eliz m. 7 Aug. 1687, d. 4 Aug. 1717, in 62d yr.

PADDLEFORD, PADELFORD, sometimes PADDLEFOOT, JONATHAN, Cambridge, in rec. spelt Padlfoote, m. 5 Oct. 1652, Mary Blanford, prob. d. of John of Sudbury, had Jonathan, b. 6 July 1653, d. soon; Mary, 22 Aug. 1654; Jonathan, again, 13 Aug. 1656; Zechariah, 16 Dec. 1657, these three bapt. 6 Nov. 1659; and Edward, 13 June, bapt. 8 July foll. His wid. m. 1662, Thomas Eames of Sherburne, and 1 Feb. 1676, she was k. by the Ind. and at the same time nine of his ch. whereof most were hers also, were either tak. See Barry, 27. JONATHAN, Braintree s. of the preced. by w. Hannah had Jonathan, b. 15 Mar. 1680, rem. to Taunton a. 1700, and there, tho, his said s. Jonathan, perpet, the family name even to our days. ZECHARIAH, Framingham, s. of the preced. d. 7 July 1737, as Mr. Barry thinks. The name is frequent at Providence and the vicinity; and four had, in 1834, says Farmer, been gr. at Brown and Yale coll.

PADDOCK, GEORGE, Plymouth, m. 1657, it is said, Sarah Rickard, perhaps d. of Giles the first. ICHABOD, the subj. of a trifl. tradit. that he was invited 1690 from Cape Cod to Nantucket to tea. the art of k. whales [Macy Hist. of Nant. 30], when 18 yrs. earlier James Loper had there been s. engaged. It is strange, that neither name was of perman. resid. bef. the last was certain. at N. JOHN, Swansey, s. of Robert, m. 21 Dec. 1673 Ann Jones. ROBERT, Plymouth 1643, and prob. some yrs bef. perhaps was never a freem. of the col. had Robert, b. 1634; Zechariah, 20 Mar. 1636; Mary, 10 Mar. 1638; Alice, 7 Mar. 1640; John, 1 Apr. 1643; George; and Susanna, 1649; but his w. is not kn. He d. 25 July 1650. Mary m. 24 Mar. 1651, or 1656, Thomas Roberts; Alice m. 7 May 1663, Zechariah Eddy; and Susanna m. 12 or 30 Nov. 1665, John Eddy, and d. 1 Mar. 1670. 

ZECHARIAH, Barnstable, s. of Robert, m. 1659, Deborah, d. of Richard Sears, liv. at Yarmouth, and d. 1 May 1727, in 88th yr. rather 91st (very remarka. as falling short of truth) leav. wid. and very numer. descend. See N. E. Weekly Journal of 5 June in that yr. The ch. were Ichabod, b. 1661; Zechariah, 1664; Elizabeth 1666; John, 1668; Robert, 1670; Joseph, 1674; Nathaniel, 1677; and Judah, 1681.

PADDY, THOMAS, Boston, s. of "blessed" William, m. Deborah Wait d. 3 Feb. 1690, and his wid. d. 22 Mar. 1697 * WILLIAM, Plymouth [[vol. 3, p. 329]] came in the James. 1635, from Southampton, emb. 6 Apr. arr. at Boston 3 June, call. in the custom-ho. clearance, skinner, late of London, wh. precision makes me suspect, that he was of the comp. or guild of the skinners, and a liveryman of the metrop. who could not at London have obtain. liberty to leave home, as he prob. was a subsidy man, that would not be spared; m. 24 Nov. 1639, Alice, d. of Edmund Freeman, had Elizabeth b. 12 Nov. 1641; John, 25 Nov. 1643, d. at 18 yrs.; Samuel 1 Aug. 1645; Thomas, 6 Sept. 1647; Joseph, 10 Sept. 1649, d. in few mos.; and Mercy; was one of four rep from his town in the first gen. Court of dep. for the Col. June 1639. His w. d. 24 Apr. 1651, and he m. at Boston, 3 Dec. foll. Mary, wid. of Bezaleel Payton, sis of William Greenough the first, had William, a. 16 Sept. 1652, d. under 20 yrs.; rem. to Boston, was ar. co. 1652, here had Nathaniel, b. 5, Bapt. 9 Nov. 1653, d. under 19 yrs.; Hannah, 8 Jan. 1656; Benjamin, 23 Feb. 1658; and Rebecca, posthum. bapt. 3 Apr. 1659, whose b. in the town rec. is strange. put 3 Aug. of that yr. when her f. d. 24 Aug. preced. age 58. His will of 20 Aug. pro. 9 Sept. foll. (abstr. in General Reg. VIII.355), names all his 9 ch. besides the two Paytons, and provides for the expected one. His wid. d. 21 Oct. 1675, aged a. 60. 

Elizabeth m. John Wensley; and Mercy m. Leonard Dowden. Nathaniel, who was prob. unm. d. soon aft. make. his will, 16 Sept. 1680. in wh. he gave est. to his sis. Mary Shore, aunts Sarah Phillips, and Elizabeth Greenough, cous. Elizabeth Greenough, and others. Farmer was led into a striking error in giving from Boston rec. death of William P. 11 Nov. 1653, by omission in his correspondent's transer. of the words that precede, for the orig. is thus: "Susan, the d. of Edward Breck of Dorchester, serv. to Mr. William Paddy, d. 11 Nov. 1653." In his Appendix he made stranger explanat. wh. would have bene avoid. had the rec. been scrutiniz. More preposerous than either of these two mistakes was the supposit. started some 20 yrs. since, on finding a gr.st. with his name and descript. laid in the common sewer, near the old town ho. in State str. that this was the spot of his interm. as if so excellent a pub. officer had been bur. in the highway. It had, prob been reject. for its coarseness. 

To correct ano. error wh. comprehends sev. is almost indispensa. needful, on account of the authority it might carry from it place in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII.286, where upon the first described of the Portraits of the Windslow fam. that of Mrs. Alice Wensley is strange. call. of the d. of Edmund Freeman, who, aft. the d. of her h. deac.
