Eunice, had, very late in life, Sarah, again, 12 Dec. 1697; and he d. 1701 in 84th yr. Butler, Hist. 282, refers to the will in proof. 

JAMES. Groton, s. of the preced. by w. Mary, m. 14 Dec. 1678, had five ch. all b. bef. their aunt Sarah, as also were 13 or 14 of their cousins. See Butler. He was town clk. 20 yrs a deac. and after overthr. of Andros. 1689, of the Comte. of Safety. Hutch. I. 382. Was k. by the Ind. when all his fam. were tak. by them. JAMES, Andover, s. of the first Nathan, was k. by the Ind. 29 June 1677, being an serv. as a soldier at Scarborough. JAMES, Kennebeck, s. of John, with his f. was by the Ind. driv. from his isl. and at Falmouth, where they took refuge, were both k. by the Ind. at the sec. destruct. of that town, May 1690. Willis, I. 65. JOHN, Boston 1635, a carpenter of Marlborough, Co. Wilts, came that yr. in the James. arr. 3 June from Southampton, with w. Jane, had Thomas, b. 2 Oct. 1635, bapt. 22 Jan. 1637, his w. hav. unit. with the ch. two weeks bef. Noah, 3, bapt. 8 Apr. 1638; beside John, and Margaret, who may have been brot. from Eng. He liv. at Muddy riv. now Brookline, and d. in few yrs. for in 1656 his wid. Jane had m. Richard Tare, and then sold her ho. and gard. in Boston to Stephen Greenleaf, who came from Newbury. 

JOHN, Saco 1636, the purch. of Parker's isl. now Georgetown, on E. side of Kennebec riv. near the mo. is by Williamson fondly thought to have first sett. in 1629 on the W. side of the riv. but his purch. was in 1650. Tradit. says he was from Bideford, Co. Devon, and d. bef. June 1661. By w. Mary he had Thomas, John, and Mary, but all may have been b. in Eng. tho. tradit. makes John b. at Saco 1634. Mary m. Thomas Webber, it is said, who d. at Charlestown bef. 1695. She was wid. on join. the ch. that yr. *JOHN, Hingham 1636, says Lincoln, p. 45, rem. to Taunton, of wh. with William, prob. elder br. he was a purch. 1637, was rep. 1642, and d. 14 Feb. 1668. Baylies, II. 2 and 282. JOHN, Boston 1644, shoemaker, had w. Sarah, who join. our ch. in Aug. of that yr. and prob. d. Sarah, who m. 22 June 1653, Isaac Bull. Perhaps he was the freem. of 1650. 

JOHN, Woburn 1653, rem,. prob. to Billerica, was there first town clk. d. at Charlestown, 14 June 1669. But a JOHN of Billerica, the serj. who d. Sept. 1668, leav. wid. but no ch. and good est. may in 1652 have been of Cambridge, s. of Robert [[vol. 3, p. 352]] and then took sh. of his f. in the Shawskin lds. wh. was the beginning of sett. at B. JOHN, Cambridge, in the part which bec. Newton, had come from Hingham, with Druce, Hammlond, and Winchester, induc. to rem. by Nicholas Hodgdon, was perhaps, the freem. of 1654; by w. Joanna had Mary, b. 28 Jan. 1648; Martha, 1 May 1649; John 15 Feb. 1652; Joanna, 16 Jan. 1654; Jermiah, 16 Feb. 1656, d. early; Thomas, 1 Feb. 1658, d. at 21 yrs.; Sarah, 6 Jan. 1660; Isaac, 15 Mar. 1663; Jonathan, 6 Nov. 1665; and Lydia, 15 May 1667; but the first two were brot. from H. nad he d. 1686, aged 71, hav. made his will 7 Sept. of that yr. The wid. d. 14 Mar. 1688. Mary m. Peter Hanchett of Roxbury; Martha m. James Horsley; Sarah m. Sept. 1686, Samuel Snow of Woburn; and Joanna, m. a Stone. JOHN, York, freem. 1652, kept the prison in 1678, was excus, from milit serv. by reason of age, still liv. in 1681, when he took o. of alleg. to the k. as ano. JOHN< perhaps his s. had in 1680. 

JOHN, Kennebeck, s. of John of Saco, perhaps b. in Eng. came to Boston to m. 20 Aug. 1660, Mary, d. of Daniel Fairfield, having the yr. bef. bot. of the Ind. a large tract on the W. side of the Kennebeck opposite his f's isl. now Phipsburg, had, beside four ds. Daniel and James. He, who may be the one who sw. fidel. at Pemaquid 1674, with James, was k. by the Ind. in May 1690 at Falmouth, to wh. they had resort. for safety. JOHN, Newport, in the list of freem. 1655. JOHN, Saybrook, s. of William, m. 24 Feb. 1666, Mary Buckingham, prob. d. of Thomas the first, had John, b. 6 Oct. 1667; Deborah, 31 Aug. 1671; Ebenezer, 18 Aug. 1674; and Samuel, 24 Jan. 1677. JOHN, Reading, br. of Hananiah, m. 13 Nov. 1667, Hannah, d. prob. of Thomas Kendall, who d. 8 July 1689, had John, b. 16 Dec. 1668; Thomas, 9 Nov. 1670; Hannah, 25 Feb. 1672; Rebecca, 18 Feb. 1675; wh. last three ch. d. 17 and 19 June 1689; Kendall, 15 Nov. 1677; Abigail, 10 Oct. 1679, d. in few wks.; Jonathan, 18 July 1681; Daniel, 30 Oct. 1686; and Abigail, again, 24 Dec. 1688, d. at 6 mos. By sec. w. Thankful, m. 28 Jan. 1690, he had Hannah, again, 28 Jan. 1691; Rebecca, again, 13 Feb. 1693; Thomas, again, 17 Mar. 1695; and Elizabeth 27 Mar. 1698; and he d. 21 Feb. foll. 

JOHN, New Haven 1668, s. of Edward, m. 8 Nov. 1670, Hannah, d. of William Bassett, had Hannah, b. 20 Aug. 1671; John, 26 Mar. 1675; and Abiah, 26 Mar. 1677; rem. to Wallingford, and had Eliphalet, Samuel, and Edward. JOHN, whose w. Alice suff. by hang. as a witch, in the horrible delusion, at Salem, 22 Sept. 1692, was not of that town, but I think, possib. of Andover, yet Felt, II. 480, has not specif. JOHN, Andover, s. of Joseph, k. by the Ind. 29 June 1677, at Scarborough, on serv. as a soldier under Capt. Swett. JOHN, Malden, freem. 1678. JOHN, Salem, m. 29 May 1673, Mary, d. of Giles Cory, had John, b. 30 Mar. foll.; Giles, 16 Apr. 1675; Mary, 12 Apr. 1676, d. in few days; Mary, again, 2 Feb. 1678; Joseph, 17 Sept. 1680; and Margaret, 11 Feb. 1683. JOHN, Newton, may have been that s. of Robert, wh. Cambridge, rec. says, d. 15 May 1681; but, as [[vol. 3, p. 353]] there was two JOHNS at N. acc. Jackson, p. 20, one disting. as South, the other as East, it may be hard to determ. Yet of the Newton John, s. of the first John of the same, Jackson teach. that by w. Mary, he had John, b. 17 Aug. 1687; Mary, 3 Mar. 1690; Deborah, 11 Feb. 1693; Sarah, 24 Mar. 1695; and Thomas, 9 Jan. 1700; and d. Oct. 1713. His wid. d. Mar. 1715. JOHN, came from London 1671, in the Arabella, but it is altogether doubtful where he sat down, or whether he had not bef. liv. on this side and gone home on business. JOHN, Andover, s. of Nathan, m. 24 May 1687, Hannah Brown, but I fell uncert. as ano. JOHN was of Andover, s. of Joseph, and neither of these, s. of Joseph or Nathan, was likely to be h. of that Alice, old enough to be hanged for a witch in the fanaticism of 1692. However, the s. of Nathan, named John, had John, Nathan, Benjamin, and James, of whom the last three says Farmer, were proprs. of Concord N. H. 1726, and he d. 1738. 

JOHN, Reading, s. of Hananiah, by w. Deliverance, had Hananiah, b. 10 Oct. 1691, d. on . serv. at Port Royall, 1711; Andrew, 14 Feb. 1693; Josiah, 11 Apr. 1694; Mary, 4 Dec. 1695, d. at 14 yrs; a s. whose name is not plain, 19 Aug. 1697, wh. d. at 12 yrs; and John, 8 Nov. 1703. Prob. he was freem. 1691, liv. late at Lexington, where his w. d. 10 Mar. 1718, and he d. 22 Jan. 1741. JONATHAN, Boston, s. of Ralph, had Thomas, was a merch. mariner, and d. bef. 1706. JONATHAN, Newton, youngest s. of the first John of the same, by w. Deliverance, had Mary, b. 25 Sept. 1701; rem. to Needham, there had Jonathan, 21 July 1711, and perhaps others bef. or after, and ano. w. Sarah. JOSEPH, Newbury, came in the Confidence from Southampton 1638, aged 24, was a tanner of Newbury, Co. Berks, had Joseph, b. 15 May 1642, rem. to Andover where he was one of the founders of the ch. Oct. 1645, and had more ch. of wh. were Stephen, b. 1651, and Samuel, Thomas, no compos, and ds. Sarah, Mary, and ruth, who all outliv. him, also John k. by the Ind. 1678; and he d. 5 Nov. 1678. All his est. in Rumsey, Co. Hants, a. 8 ms. from Southampton, he devis. to his w. by the last will, made 4 Nov. of that yr. her name was Mary, and a wid. of that name d. 2 Oct. 1695. JOSEPH, Chelmsford, m. 24 June 1655, Rebecca Read, had Ann, b. 7 Feb. 1656; Mary, 28 Oct. 1657; John 31 July 1659; and John, 24 Nov. 1660; but the rec. gives not mo. of the first two, and for the third names Mary; and Margaret for fourth. Yet it may seem prob. that one w. either Mary or Margaret brought all; and perhaps there were more. 

JOSEPH, Dunstable, is altogether unkn. to me, unless he were of ano. town, and tho. a propr. only a tempor. resid. he had by w. Margaret, as on the rec. of Chelmsford is to be seen, Joseph, b. 30 Mar. 1653; Ann, 2 Feb. 1655, bapt. 20 Apr. foll. d. young; Mary, 28 Oct. 1657; John, 4 Nov. 1660, [[vol. 3, p. 354]] d. 8 Oct. foll.; Ann, 16 Nov. 1663; and Sarah, 16 Nov. 1666; as shown in Shattuck's Memorials; yet I can hardly doubt that confus. betw. husbands of Rebecca and of Margaret, in the rec. of their ch. must have occurr. especial. as ea. had mary b. on one day. JOSEPH, Groton, prob. s. of James the first, had two ws. Elizabeth and Hannah, the latter m. 19 Nov. 1684, and by them had Sarah, b. 16 Nov. 1666 or 1676; Elizabeth 31 Aug. 1679;Simon, 27 Aug. 1687; Joseph, 1 Mar. 1689; Benjamin, 3 Dec. 1691; and John, 26 Aug. 1695. In the excel. Hist. of Groton by Butler, five pages are filled with descent. of James and Joseph. But Shattuck's Memorials, page 376, does not contain the name of the first ch. as above giv. yet supplies two, Nehemiah and Isaac, bef. Simon. JOSEPH, Saybrook, s. of William, m. 3 June 1673, Hannah Gilbert, had Joseph, b. 3 July 1674; Jonathan, 15 July 1675; d. at 8 yrs.; Sarah and Hannah, tw. 15 Feb. 1677, both d. very soon; Hannah, 18 July 1679; Margery, 22 June 1681, d. in few mos.; Margery, again, 12 Mar. 1683, d. at 1 yr.; Matthew; and Jonathan, again, 6 Oct. 1686. 

JOSEPH, Scituate, s. of William of the same, had says Deane, from 1684 to 1702, Alice, Mary, Joseph, Judith, and Miles, but he does not fix the date of any. JOSEPH, Andover, s. prob. of Joseph the first, m. 7 Oct. 1680, Elizabeth Bridges, wid. of Obadiah, nad prob. d. 6 Apr. 1684; and perhaps his wid. m. 26 Apr. 1686, Samuel Hutchinson. JOSHUA, Groton, s. of Capt. James of the same, m. 22 Sept. 1690, Abigail, youngest d. of the first William Shattuck, and wid. of Jonathan Morse, had Abiel, a d. JOSIAH, Groton, s. of James the first, m. 8 May 1678, Elizabeth Saxton of Boston, prob. d. of Thomas, had Elizabeth b. 31 Aug. 1679; John, 13 Apr. 1681; and Sarah, 1 May 1683; rem. to Chelmsford, Watertown, and last to Cambridge, in one or more of wh. resid. he had Josiah; Joshua; and thomas, H. C. 1718, the min of Dracut, to wh.by his will of 26 July 1731 he have his Groton homestead, and made him excor. MATTHEW, Boston, d. 19 Sept. 1652. MOSES, Chelmsford, s. of Abraham of the same, m. Abigail. d. of richard Hildreth, had Moses, who was k. by lightning; Abigail, b. 8 May 1685; Aaron, 9 Apr. 1689; Elizabeth 26 Dec. 1691; Joseph, 25 Mar. 1694; Benjamin, 14 Apr. 1696; nad Mary, 6 Sept. 1698. 

NATHAN, Newbury, an early sett. rem. to Andover, was br. of Joseph of the same, m. 10 Nov. 1648, Sarah, or Susan, Short, wh. d. at A. 26 Aug. 1651; but by ano. w. Mary he had John, b. 1653; James, Robert; and Peter; and d. 25 June 1685. Perhaps this man may be he who was ent. as Nathaniel, of London, a baker, aged 20, in 1638, when Stephen Dummer brought him in the Bevis from Southampton. NATHAN, Newbury, prob. s. of the preced. m. 15 Dec. 1675, Mary Brown, d. of John, says one acco. in the Geneal. Reg. VI. 232, by ano. correct report, IX. 221, of Francis, but both describ. a [[vol. 3, p. 355]] of Hampton, and the latter acco. makes her to have sec. h. Eliot. He had only ch. Mary, and d. 1 Apr. 1679.

Bethia and Bethia, b. 23 July 1678, d. in few wks.; Nathaniel, 4 Dec. 1679; Stephen, 14 June 1684, d. in few mos.; Bethia, again, 6 Sept. 1685; Susanna, 29 Dec. 1687; Ebenezer, 28 Dec. 1689; Stephen, again, 21 Apr. 1692; Caleb, 22 Feb. 1694; Timothy, 24 Feb. 1696; Obadiah, 13 Jan. 1698; Abigail, 25 Sept. 1699; Amy, 1 June 1701, d. soon; Amy, again, 8 Nov. 1702; and Phineas, 27 Sept. 1704; was frem. 1691.

Noah Wiswall,had Noah, b. 20 Jan. 1695; Caleb, 9 Nov. 1696; and his w. d. 30 July 16736. In Dec. foll. he m. Mary, wid. of Joseph Hovey, d. prob. of John Marrett of Cambridge; and d. 28 Feb. 1747. His wid. d. 10 Sept. 1758. NICHOLAS, Roxbury, came in 1633, either with Cotton in the Griffin, or in the Bird (both of wh. arr. 4 Sept.) with w. Ann, ch.

Ann had Joseph, b. 1 Aug. 1638, d. in few mos.; Sarah, 8, bapt. 11 July 1641, was freem. 2 June 1641, and prob. he d. soon aft. but may have had sec. w. for in the book of possessns.
