His w. d. 14 Jan. 1682, and he m. Mehitable, d. of John Waite of Malden, the speaker of the ho. had only Mehitable; and m. third w. Margaret Gardner, had Deliverance, again, 1686; Samuel, 24 June 1687; and Margaret, [[vol. 3, p. 359]] 7 Oct. 1688; wh. all d. young; and his w. d. 25 Mar. 1689 aged 24. His fourth w. was Susanna, wid. of John Gedney, jr. but she had by this union no ch. and he d. 15 Nov. 1715. ELIAS, Dorchester 1633, freem. 6 May 1635, rem. to Windsor early, there had Elias; Rebecca; Samuel, b. 12 Aug. 1644; and George, who d. 1645; he prob. had an establishm. for trade at New Haven 1640, but finally rem. to Boston, there had Mary, bapt. 24 Sept. 1648; Deliverance, b. 3, bapt. 10 Aug. 1651; and Nathaniel, b. 24 June, bapt. 8 July 1655. His w. was Bridget. He was a mariner, traded from Boston to Conn. riv. and perhaps on longer voyages, in one of wh. he was prob. lost, for his w. present, inv. 2 July 1662, made two days bef. recit. that he was "suppos. to be d.;" and as it amount. to only £37, 15, we may well think that most of his prop. was lost at the same time. Rebecca m. 18 Sept. 1661, John Jarvis; and perhaps his wid. m. 6 Sept. 1672, Sylvester Eveleth of Gloucester. 

ELIAS, Boston 1665, mariner, s. of the preced. by w. Sarah, d. of capt. William Trask, m. 13 Oct. 1656, had Elias, b. 13 Nov. 1665; John, 20 Jan. 1669; and Elizabeth 29 Dec. 1670; beside William, b. at Salem, 29 Mar. 1658; Elias, 31 Aug. 1660, wh. prob. d. soon; and Sarah, 19 Oct. 1662; all, exc. John, who prob. d. young, name. in his will of 8 Aug. 1691, made in London, brot. for pro. by his w. 6 Mar. 1693. Rev. Ebenezer, H.

Of these my friend, Rev. Francis, H. C. 1807, will be long remem. for his urbanity, learning, and benevolence. 

NATHANIEL, Boston, s. of Elias the first, by w. Hannah had Hannah, b. 30 Mar. 1686, Nathaniel, 29 Oct. 1688; Rebecca, 6 June 1696; and Nathaniel, again. WILLIAM, Nantucket, m. Elizabeth d. of Alexander Adams of Boston, had Mary, b. 25 Feb. 1680; and no more I can hear.

PARMELLEE, JOHN, Guilford 1639, was of New Haven 1659, when he made his will 8 Nov. and d. short time aft. To his only s. large part of his prop. was giv. resid. to gr.ch. Nathaniel, and Hannah, w. of John Johnson, after provid. for his own w. Elizabeth who. m. John Evarts. JOHN, Guilford 1650, s. of the preced. the only one who outliv. him may be the only one he every had, was propr. 1685, with s. John, but prob. he had others. By his will of 23 Dec. 1684, and the distrib. of assets in 1688, we gain the names of Joshua, Caleb, Isaac, Hannah, Stephen, Job, Priscilla, and Joel. Sometimes this name is Parmelin, but the mod. spell. prevails. See Palmerly.

PARMENTER, often in old rec. PARMITER, BENJAMIN, Salem 1637, when Felt says, he had gr. of ld. but perhaps he did not live there, exc. on Marblehead side. yet called of S. when freem. 1678, many yrs. bef. had w. Mary, and d. Mary, and was of Gloucester 1684, said to have been b. a. 1610.

JAMES, Hull 1669, may be he who d. at Sudbury, 21 Nov. 1678, unless this were a ch. JOHN, Watertown 1638, one of the first sett. of Sudbury 1639, freem. 13 May 1640, selectman and deac. had brought from Eng. s. John, and perhaps other ch. with w. Bridget, who d. 6 Apr. 1660, and he rem. to Roxbury, there m. 9 Aug. 1660, Ann, or Annis, wid. of John Dane, who had bef. been wid. of William Chandler; and he d. 1 May 1671, aged 83. In his will, he names this w. and s.-in-law John Woods, h. of his d. Mary, and gr. s. John, his s. of that name being some yrs. d. and this gr. s. made one of the excors. The will of his wid. 1 Nov. 1672, pro. eleven yrs. after, names her first h.'s childr. John, Thomas, and William Chandler, Hannah, w. of George Abbot, and Sarah, w. of William Cleaves.

I think, with slight error, 12 Apr. 1666; Mary, m. 1670, Richard Burk; and Lydia m. 5 June 1681, Thomas Pratt. JOHN, Boston, housewright, by w. Judith, had Judith, b. 14 Feb. 1667, d. soon; Elizabeth 8 Feb. 1668; John, 31 Oct. 1670, d. soon; Judith, again, 17 July 1672; John, again, 17 Nov. 1674; and Lydia, Jan. 1677; and by sec. w.

PARR, Abel, Boston, freem. 2 June 1641. I think it possib. that Porter [[vol. 3, p. 361]] was meant, instead of Parr. JAMES, one of the soldiers sent to seize Gorton, and his comp. was of unkn. resid. Samuel, Salem 1665.

PARROTT, PAROTE, or PARRETT, *FRANCIS, Rowley, freem. 13 May 1640, was town clk. 14 yrs. rep. 1640 and 2, being the earliest from that town, went home, and d. a. 1656. His will ment. w.

The unhap. woman had, in her native ld. suffer. abuse by a former h. who sev. yrs bef. she came hither, abandon. her, and her charact. was so fair, that we must believe undoubt, she was insane. But the h. was less lucky in his jury, who convict. him of a sim. crime, when, in 1652, the sentence of death was refused by the court, and the Gen. Court had sense eno. to discharge the prisoner.
