PAIGE, JOHN, Saybrook 1684. NATHANIEL, Roxbury 1686, had sev. ch. b. prob. in Eng. and here had James, bapt. 28 Nov. 1686, d. at 8 mos. tho. town rec. ment. neither b. nor d.; rem. 1688 to Billerica, was freem. 1690; had Christopher, b. 10 Feb. 1691. By Joseph Dudley, as Presid. he was made, 1686, marshal of the Co. of Suffk. he d. 12 Apr. 1692; but tho. descent. are num. eno. it is not ascert. from what part of Eng. or when he came. His will names w. Joanna; his d. Elizabeth m. 2 Dec. 1698, John Simpkins of Boston; Sarah m. 7 Jan. 1699, Samuel Hill, jr. of Billerica. His s. Nathaniel d. at Bedford, 2 Mar. 1755, aged 75; and Christopher was the first deac. at Hardwick, where he d. 10 Mar. 1774. 

NICHOLAS, Boston 1665, perhaps br. of the preced. came from Plymouth, Co. Devon, m.

His w. d. 30 June 1704, and he d. prob. late in 1717, for his will was pro. 3 Jan. foll. Hutch. 295, and 375, where is strange mistake in call. his w. sis. of Gov. Joseph Dudley, when she was d. of that unhappy sis. In the weakness of that parent, she was suspect. of inherit. a melancholy share, was indict. and aft. disagreem. of the jury, was at the Gen. Court in May 1666, found "guilty of much wickedness"; but great lenity was exhibit. towards her, and on acknowledgm. of her offences she was discharg. See in Mass. Rec. IV. part 2, page 309, a brief of the very strange process.

PAINE, ANTHONY, Portsmouth, R. I. rec. to be an inhab. 6 Dec. 1638 had w. Rose, who m. a Weeden, and may seem to have fam. from his release, of 1650, to share of property of P. wh. d. a. 1640. ARTHUR, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, in the list of freem. BENJAMIN, Bristol, youngest and fifth s. of the sec. Stephen of Rehoboth, d. in the spring of 1698, his will of 18 Apr. pro. 3 May foll. in that yr. giv. his est. to brs. and sis. shows he was unm. and for so young a man his inv. was large, but chief, it was deriv. from his f. and gr.f. EDWARD, Lynn 1637, Charlestown 1638, rem. prob. 1643 to Exeter or Dover, and bef. 1649 went home. ELISHA, Eastham, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 21 Jan. 1687, Rebecca, d. of John Doane, had Abigail, b. 5 Jan. and bapt. 21 Oct. 1688; Elisha, b. 29 Dec. 1693; Mary, 1 Feb. 1696; Solomon, 16 May 16908; and Dorcas, 24 Feb. 1700. Four or five more ch. are assign. to him in the Fam. Geneal. But without dates, and it is said he rem. to Canterbury, Conn. and d. 7 Feb. 1735. James, Newport, by w. Amy had Amy, b. 28 Jan. 1660. 

JAMES, Barnstable, s. of Thomas of Eastham, m. 9 Apr. 1691, Bethia, d. of John Thacker of Yarmouth, had James, b. 24, bapt. 27 Mar. 1692, d. at 19 yrs.; Thomas, bapt. 8 Apr. 1694; Bethia, 22 Feb. bapt. 8 Mar. 1696, d. next yr.; Bethia, again 23, bapt. 29 May 1698; Mary, 13, bapt. 18 Aug. 1700; Experience, b. 17 [[vol. 3, p. 333]] Mar. 1703; and Rebecca, 8 Apr. 1705, d. at 21 yrs. JOHN, Southold, L. I. perhaps s. of Thomas of Salem, was freem. of Conn. 1662, and may have been a propr. of New Haven 1685; tho. JOHN, of New Haven 1670, seems to me to be ano. person, wh. m. 22 Jan. 1673, Abigail, youngest d. of John Brocket. He had John, b. 15 Aug. 1674; Abigail, 17 Mar. 1676; Elizabeth 2 Oct. 1677; Josiah, 21 Sept. 1679, d. next yr.; William, 24 Feb. 1681; Samuel, 27 Feb. 1683; Mary, 18 Sept. 1685, d. at 18 yrs.; and James, 6 Apr. 1687. Sec. w. he took, 24 Mar. 1692, was Jemima, but no issue came of this m. JOHN, Ipswich, s. of Robert, ar.co. 1666, went to Nantucket, there d. 13 July 1677, says Farmer; but I feel some distrust of it. 

JOHN, Middletown, d. 1681, leav. wid. an eldest s. aged 20; Job, aged 4 yrs; Patience, 3; and Abigail, 1. One of this name, wh. I kn. not how to appropriate, was passeng. at 14 yrs. of age, in the Abigail, 1635, from London. JOHN, Boston, s. of William, m. Mar. 1659, Sarah, d. of Richard Parker; but if the tradit. be good, that he d. at sea, aft. convey. 29 Dec. 1674, some est. to his niece, Hannah, d. of Samuel Appleton, w. of William Downes, he had prob. lost his w. By her he had Sarah, b. 14 Aug. 1660; Hannah, 31 Mar. 1662, both d. young; William, 15 Mar. 1664; Ann, 24 Mar. 1665; and Elizabeth 19 Feb. 1666. JOHN, Dedham, s. prob. of Thomas the first of the same, m. 7 Feb. 1677, Mary, d. of Ralph Day, had Rebecca, b. 7 June 1678; Mary, 11 July 1680; Susanna, 17 Aug. 1682; John, 28 Feb 1685; Thomas, 8 Jan. 1687; and Sarah, 17 Nov. 1689. Prob. his w. d. 25 Oct. 1694. 

JOHN, Rehoboth, s. of Stephen of the same, m. Elizabeth d. of Josiah Belcher of Boston, had Elizabeth b. 12 July 1682. JOHN, Braintree, s. of the sec. Stephen of the same, m. 20 Jan. 1689, Deborah, d. of Henry Neal, had John, b. 13 Aug. 1690, casual. k. at 16 yrs.; Deborah, 28 Sept. 16921, d. young; Stephen, 19 Jan. 1694; Joseph, 26 Oct. 1695; Moses, 7 Nov. 1697, d. soon; Benjamin, 6 Mar. 1700; Seth, 16 Jan. 1702; and James and Deborah, tw. 27 July 1704. JOHN, Eastham, prob. s. of Thomas of the same, by first w. said to have been a Bennett, who d. 20 May 1716, had John, b. 18 Sept. 1690; Mary, 28 Jan. 1693; William, 6 June 1695; Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1697, d. young; Sarah, 14 Apr. 1699; Elizabeth 2 June 1702; Theophilus, 7 Feb. 1704; Josiah, 8 Mar. 1706; Nathaniel, 18 Nov. 1707; Rebecca, 30 Oct. 1709; Mercy, 3 Apr. 1712; and Benjamin, 18 May 1714, d. young; and he m. 3 Mar. 1720, Alice Mayo, had Hannah, 11 Jan. 1721, d. young; James, 17 Dec. 1723, d. young; Thomas, 6 Apr. 1725; and Alice, 4 Dec. 1728. He d. 18 Oct. 1731. JOSEPH, Charlestown 1649, was s. of Edward, bef. ment. who had est. at Wapping, near London, wh. this s. sold, and went home, prob. JOSEPH, Eastham, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 27 May 1691, Patience Sparrow, perhaps d. of Jonathan, had Ebenezer, b. 8 Apr. 1692; Hannah, 5 July 1694; Joseph, 27 Mar. 1697; and Richard, 25 Mar. 1699. 

MOSES, Braintree, freem. 2 June 12641, had est. in Cambridge, Concord, and at Piscataqua, as well as Braintree, and three ch. to wh. by will of 17 June 1643, he div. his prop. half to Moses, made excor, one quarter to d. Elizabeth and the other to s. Stephen, who was to be under Moses' [[vol. 3, p. 334]] governm. until 23 yrs. old. These were all b. in Eng. Besides he adds codic. three days later, one day bef. his d. giv. w. Judith twenty shill. to be paid within a cert. time. The will was pro. 30 Oct. 1643, and his inv. ret. the same days, shows rather large est. yet without the sums due to him from Eng. Of the four appraisers, half were Guilford men, wh. appears strange, but the provision for his wid. seems more strange. She had been not long his w. hav. been wid. of the first Ed.mund Quincy, brot. him no ch. and in few yrs. m. Robert Hull. Elizabeth m. 17 Nov. 1643, Henry Adams, and was casual, k. 21 Feb. 1676 in few hours aft, her h. was shot.

Nathaniel, his only ch. b. 18 Oct. 1661, and wid. Eliz, or Alice. NATHANIEL, Rehoboth, s. of the preced. by w. Dorothy had Dorothy, b. 3 Feb. 1696; Nathaniel, 24 May 1697; Abigail, 28 July 1699; Jonathan, 2 July 1701; perhaps Mary of unkn. date; Rachel, 14 July 1705; and Elizabeth 15 Apr. 1712; and he d. 1718. 

NATHANIEL, Rehoboth, s. of the sec. Stephen of the same, prob. rem. to Bristol, where he had w. and four ch. in Feb. 1689, had s. Nathaniel, thot. to be ancest. of the gr. fam. at Worchester, and was, perhaps, f. of Stephen, H. C. 1721; and six ds. Elizabeth Sarah, Mary, Hannah, Martha, and Dorothy.

*ROBERT, Ipswich, b. a 1601, was prob. from Co. Suffolk, as his w. Ann was d. of John Whiting of Hadleigh in that shire, freem. 2 June 1641, rep. 1647-9, had good est. and was liberal in distrib. of it, [[vol. 3, p. 335]] was rul. elder, Treasr. of Essex Co. eighteen yrs. had sec. w. Dorcas, wh. d. 23 Feb. 1681; and he d. 1684, leav. s. John, and Robert, H. C. 1656. ROBERT, Ipswich, s. of the preced, freem. 1685, was liv. 1704. SAMUEL, Boston, by w. Eliz, had Samuel, b. 26 Aug. 1670. SAMUEL, Braintree, s. of Stephen first of the same, freem. 1690, m. 4 Apr. 1678, Mary, d. of James Penniman, had Mary, b. 27 Oct. 1680; Lydia, 6 Jan. 1682; Samuel, 26 Nov. 1684; Hannah, 1 Feb. 1687; Joseph, 3 Aug. 1689; Mehitable, 8 Dec. 1693; and Benjamin, 28 Dec. 1696; and d. 10 Dec. 1739.

His wid. d. 13 Jan 1752, aged 79, acc. Fam. Geneal. 

*STEPHEN, Hingham 1638, from Great Ellingham, near Attleburg, Co. Norfk. miller, came that yr. in Diligent, with w. Rose, three ch. and four serv. freem. 6 June 1639, rep. 1641, rem. 1645 to Rehoboth, rep. 1647, and 18 yrs. more. His w. d. 20 Jan. 1661, and next yr. he m. Alice, wid. of William Parker, I presume, of Taunton, wh. outliv. him, and he d. 24 June 1678, or as I read Col. Rec. 24 Jan. foll. but neither can be true for him, tho. one may be for his s. of the same name, since the rec. bears "S. P. sen. was bur. 21 Aug. 1679." His will was of 18 July in that yr. and inv. of very large est. was tak. 11 Sept. foll. STEPHEN Braintree, younger s. of Moses the first, b. in Eng. ar. co. 1649, freem. 1653, m. 15 Nov. 1651, Hannah, d. of deac. Samuel Bass, had Stephen, b. 8 Mar. 1653; Samuel, 10 June 1654; Hannah, 28 Jan. 1656; Sarah, 1 Nov. 1657; Moses, 26 Mar. 1660; John, 21 Sept. 1666; and Lydia, 20 Sept. 1670. He d. 29 July 1691. Sarah M. 22 Jan. 1678, Roger Billings; and Lydia, his youngest ch. m. 20 Jan. 1689, Benjamin Neale, the same day that her br. m. his sis. 

STEPHEN, Rehoboth, s. of the first Stephen, b. prob. in Eng. a tanner, had est. at Watertown in 1654, but liv. not long there, and at R. had Stephen, b. 23 Nov. 1654; Rebecca, 20 Dec. 1656; John, 3 Apr. 1658; Mary, 11 July 1660; Samuel, 12 Aug. 1662; Elizabeth 27 Oct. 1664; Sarah, 12 Oct. 1666; Nathaniel, 20 Nov. 1667; and Benjamin, 9 Mar. 1675, wh. d. unm. at 23 yrs. The other ch. were all m. and he d. bef. his f. Rebecca m. 24 Dec. 1673, Peter Hunt, and 21 Nov. 1677, [[vol. 3, p. 336]] Samuel Peck; Mary m. Daniel Aldis, as says the Fam. Geneal. but it may be a mistake, for D. Aldis m. Sarah, and I believe her to have been d. of the sec. Moses of Braintree; Elizabeth m. 10 Feb. 1685, Jacob Pepper; and Sarah m. Enoch Hunt, if the Fam. Geneal. be foll. but my research makes E. Hunt m. 29 Oct. 1678, Mary Paine. Into such errors it is much easier to fall than to recover from them. 

STEPHEN, Dedham, m. 3 Nov. 1652, Ann, d. of Francis Chickering, of wh. aft. hard search I can find no more, unless he be the Rehoboth man, and his wid. m. 2 Dec. 1679, Thomas Metcalf of D. STEPHEN, Charlestown, or Malden, freem. 1665, by w. Elizabeth had Mary, b. 15 Nov. 1658, was tythingman 1679, at C. adj. M. STEPHEN, Braintree, eldest s. of Stephen of the same, freem. 1678, m. 20 Feb. 1682, Ellen, d. of William Veazie, had Stephen, b. 7 Nov. full.; Ellen, bapt. 12 Oct. 1684; Samuel, 13 Feb. 1687, d. at 2 yrs.; Samuel, again, 14 Apr. 1689; and d. 24 May 1690. His wid. m. 5 Oct. 1693, Joseph Crosby. STEPHEN, Rehoboth, eldest s. of the sec. Stephen of the same, by first w. Elizabeth had, it is thot. no ch. but by sec. w. m. 12 Aug. 1707, Mary Brintnall, had Stephen, b. 30 Ar. 1708; and Edward, 22 Jan. 1710; and the f. d. 12 Mar. foll. His wid. it is said, rem. to Conn. THOMAS, Salem, a weaver, from Wrentham, in Co. Suffk. came 1637, aged 50, in the Mary Ann of Yarmouth, with w. Elizabeth 53; and six ch. Mary, b. 12 Oct. 1611; Thomas, 18 Jan. 1613; Elizabeth 20 Jan. 1615; Dorothy, 6 Dec 1618; John, 26 Aug. 1620; and Sarah, 7 Mar. 1622; as by a very trustworthy anc. docum. appears, in wh. he (call. s. of Thomas and Catharine of Cooklie, near Halesworth, in Co. Suffk.) is said to be b. 11 Dec. 1586, m. this w. 22 Nov. 1610, and, beside the six ch. brot. over, had Peter, 14 Mar. 1617, wh. prob. d. young; and Nathaniel, 21 July 1626, wh. d. under 10 yrs. He had, says Felt, gr. of ld. 1637, was freem. 2 June 1641, unless it was his s. then adm. who. seems much more prob.; made his will 10 Apr. 1638, and by the bef. ment. docum. is supposed to have d. 1640. Mary m. Philemon Dickinson. 

THOMAS, Dedham, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. prob. the freem. of 2 June 1641, by w. Rebecca Ware had Rebecca, b. 19 Sept. 1642; Thomas, 19, bapt. 24 Mar. 1644; John, b. 27 Apr. 1646; and Elizabeth 6, bapt. 12 Mar. 1648, and he d. 3 Aug. 1686. His will was made 26 July preced. in wh. beside w. Rebecca, he provides for s.-in-law Thomas Patten, whose w. Rebecca his d. m. 1 Apr. 1662, had d. leav. Rebecca, and for Elizabeth Hunting, w. of John, m. 18 Apr. 1671; and devise ld. to s. Thomas, gives resid. of est. equal. between s. Thomas and John. The wid. made her will 3 Mar. 1688. *THOMAS, Yarmouth 1643, had been there certainly four yrs. for he was rep. 1639 (tho. no respect is due to report of his com. 1621), rem. to Eastham, of wh. he was rep. 1671 and six yrs. more, had, beside Eleazer, b. 10 Mar. 1659, wh. d. young, [[vol. 3, p. 337]] Thomas; Joseph; Nicholas, Samuel; Elisha; John; James, 6 July 1665; Mary; and Dorcas. Mary m. 11 Jan. 1670, James Rogers, jr. and next, 24 Apr. 1679, Isaiah Cole; and Dorcas m. Benjamin Vickery. The will of the f. was of 12 May 1705, pro. 2 Oct. 1706, unless there be confus. betw. f. and s. of the same bapt. name, wh. seems very prob. 

THOMAS, Boston, m. 25 Aug. 1659, Hannah, d. of Thomas Bray of New Haven, had Thomas, b. 19 Feb. 1665. He was, perhaps, that s. of Thomas of London, b. 8 Feb. 1632, who. 1647, chose for his guardian, Thomas Mayhew, wh. had m. in London his mo. Jane. THOMAS, Newtown, L. I. 1656. Riker, 43. THOMAS, York, sw. alleg. 1680. THOMAS, Dover 1659, constable 1687, made his will 17 Oct. 1694, pro. 1700, ment. w. Eliz wh. was name. extrix. and ch. Thomas, Jane, Eliz, Catharine, and Ann, said to be all minors. THOMAS, Dedham, s. of Thomas sec. of the same. m. 25 Apr. 1671, Rebecca Peck, had no ch. His w. d. 28 Nov. 1682; and he had sec. w. Margaret, wh. prob. brot. him that Thomas wh. d. 6 Sept. 1686; Margaret, wh. d. ten days aft. her br. 16 Sept. 1686; and Thomas, again, b. 5 Sept. 1687, wh. d. at 10 yrs. his mo. hav. d. some yrs. preced.; and he m. next, 20 Aug. 1689, Mary Lawson, had Mary, b. 16 Aug. 1698, and his third w. d. 5 Apr. 1718.

THOMAS, Newport 1683, very active as capt. of a privateer many yrs. and one of the found. of the Episcop. ch. in the place, of wh. much may be seen in the valua. Hist. of Arnold, I. 471, and aft. TOBIAS, Boston, came from Jamaica, m. 1665, Sarah, wid. of Miles Standish, jr. d. of John Winslow, had William, 21 Jan. 1669, H. C. 1689, and he d. 12 Sept. 1669, with so short notice, that his will was nuncup. In it he provides only for his s. and the wid. who. obtain. 3d h. Richard Middlecot. WILLIAM, Ipswich, came in the Increase from London, 1635, aged 37, with Ann, prob. his w. 40; beside Susan, 11; William, 10; Ann, 5; John, 3; and Daniel, 8 wks.; freem. 13 May 1640, may have been first at Watertown some few yrs. had large est. and used it in a publ. spirit, rem. to Boston, and d. 10 Oct. 1660, leav. only s.

John, to six ch. of Simon Eyre, dec. viz.: Benjamin, Mary, Rebecca, Christian, Ann, and Dorothy, £5 ea. and to Simon, wh. was older than most of them, £5. (from this I conject. as also from being fellow-passeng. that the w. of Eyre was sis. of this testator); to my sis. Page £3 per an. and to her ch. John, Samuel, Elizabeth Mary, and Phebe, £5 ea.; to ch. of my sis. Hammond, John, Elizabeth and Hannah, £5. ea.; to my kinswo. Elizabeth d. of Samuel Howse, £10, to two ds. of my cous. John Tall, 40s. ea.; s.-in-law Samuel Appleton, £10.; William Howard, £15; Jeremiah Belcher, 40s; Anthony Stoddard, £10.; Christopher Clark, £10.; Joseph Taintor, £10.; Oliver Purchase, £10.; to an Ind. serv. 40s. yearly; to the free sch. at Ipswich his ld. at Jeffrys neck; to the coll. at Cambr. £210. as a stock forever, and to friends in the min. Norton, Wilson, Sherman, Brown, Cobbett, Fiske, Phillips, and Mayo, 40s. ea. WILLIAM, Salem, shoemaker, may be that passeng. in the Abigail, 1635, aged 15, and at S. to Elizabeth perhaps his w. or mo. Felt says gr. of ld. was made 1640, and he was prob. the freem. of 1650, d. a. 1660. 

WILLIAM, New Haven 1667, perhaps br. of John, was freem. 1669, had, by w. whose name is not seen, Mercy, wh. m. 9 June 1664, John Frost; Elizabeth wh. m. 11 Oct. 1666, Thomas Sanford; and John, bef. ment. Late in life, he m. Nov. 1679, Mary, wid. of Francis Brown, and his inv. was of 11 Jan. 1685. WILLIAM, Boston s. of Tobias, by w. Mary had William, bapt. 24 Nov. 1695; Tobiah, 27 June 1697; and Sarah, 16 July 1699, at the 2d ch. that of the Mathers; but as he was next winter one of the found. of the Brattle st. ch. perhaps others were bapt. there. He d. 11 June 1735. Twenty of this name had been in 1827 gr. at Harv. and above half as many more at other N. E. coll. besides not a small number, spelling Payne; but I could not discrimin. the fams. and had it been in my power, there would have no benefit foll. because sev. have used both forms. Of ARTHUR, ment. by Farmer, as rec. into Boston ch. 1639, I have the utmost confidence that it belongs to Perry, only one Arthur occurr. in adm. of memb. in that yr.

PAINTER, SHUBAEL, Westerly, perhaps s. of Thomas, with him among earliest sett. there 1661. THOMAS, Hingham 1637, rem. perhaps to Providence, at least Roger Williams gives him deed of a lot there, among home lots; but he was aft. at Boston, by w. Catharine, wh. d. 1641, had Elizabeth William, and Thomas, wh. all d. betw. 30 Sept. 1639 and 24 Apr. foll. says the town rec. wh. may so far be true, but ano. Thomas was by the ch. rec. bapt. 13 Sept. 1640, the f. being adm. 5 preced. and freem. 12 Oct. 1640, rem. to Charlestown, New Haven, Rowley, and back to Hingham bef. 1644, there had ano. w. and ch. and suffered severly for unwilling. to bring the ch. to bapt. as told in Winthrop II. 174. So I think he rem. next to Providence, thence again to Newport, bef. 1655, when his name is enroll. among the freem. and prob. his last rem. was to Westerly with its first sett. in 1661. 

THOMAS, Westerly 1669, perhaps s. of the preced. and one of the name was [[vol. 3, p. 339]] drown. 15 Mar. 1706, whether that being new yrs. day gave any occasion for the casualty is not heard. WILLIAM, Charlestown, a sea capt, and merch. d. 28 Aug. 1666. His will, made 4 days preced. names w. Elizabeth speaks of est. in Barbados and Carolina.

PALFREY, PALFERY, PALFRY, or PALFRAY, JOHN, Cambridge, brot. from Eng. perhaps by his mo. who m. George Willis, sometimes writ. Willowes; by w. Rebecca, d. of William Bordman, m. 4 Aug. 1664, had Rebecca, b. 15, bapt. 17 Sept. 1665; John, 12, bapt. 14 Apr. 1667, d. in few wks.; Elizabeth bapt. 24 May 1668; Martha, b. 18 May 1670; Thomas, 7 May 1672, wh. d. 21 Nov. 1677; Ruth, 1 Nov. 1677, wh. d. unm. at Medford, age 60; John, early in 1689, wh. d. 1 Dec. 1750, says Cambr. Epit. in 71st yr. and unm. There were two or three ds. more, of wh. one was Mary, wh. m. 1 Dec. 1700, Ebenezer Williams.

Rebecca bec. sec. w. 24 Nov. 1716, of Joseph Hicks; and Martha m. 30 May 1689, Benjamin Goddard. *PETER, Salem 1626, came, perhaps, with Conant, or soon aft. req. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and took 18 May foll. the oath, was much betrusted, rep. 1635; by w. Edith had Jonathan, bapt. 25 Dec. 1636; Jehoiadan, d. early; Remember, bapt. 16 Sept. 1638; Mary, 15 Dec. 1639; and at least two ds. more; rem. to Reading, there d. strick. in yrs. 15 Sept. 1663.

Descent, however, from this patriarch is claimed by many, of wh. one is the learned Professor P. the dilig. hist. of N. E.

PALGRAVE, PALSGRAVE, JOHN, Boston, s. of Richard, m. 8 Feb. 1656, Mary, d. of Samuel Maverick of Noddles isl. He d. early, and his wid. m. 20 Sept. 1660. Mr. Francis Hooke of Kittery. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 334. RICHARD, Charlestown, a physician, came in the fleet with Winthrop from Stephney, Co. Middlesex, adjoin. London, with w. Ann, and ds.

Nos. 105 and 6, and did not transfer their relat. to the Charlestown ch. This last ch. d. 21 Aug. aft.
