ROBERT, Boston, 1652, merch. was capt. and magistr. in the tempora. co. of Devonshire, Me. perhaps was the man k. by the Ind. 1689, at Pemaquid, as told in the Magn. by Mather VII. apx. art IV.

PATIE, PETER, Haverhill, took o. of alleg. Nov. 1677.

PATRICK, DANIEL, Watertown, one of the two capt. in regular pay, brot. in the fleet by Winthrop 1630, freem. 18 May 1631, was short time of Cambridge, but at W. Selectman 1638; rem. to Conn. had a Dutch w. and was k. by a Dutchman 1643, at Stamford. See Winthrop I. 74, and II. 151. WILLIAM, Hartford, had Samuel. b. 15 Oct. 1645.

PATTEN, NATHANIEL, Dorchester 1640, d. 31 Jan. 1661, leav. wid. Justine, and large est. on wh. the wid. admin. and d. 28 Dec. 1672. I suppose he left no ch. for his br. and heir John, from Crewkerne in Co. Somerset, sent his s. Thomas to dispose of est. in Boston, and its neighb. NATHANIEL,Cambridge, s. of William, m. 24 Nov. 1669, Rebecca, d. of John Adams, who d. 18 Dec. 1677, and he m. 8 Oct. 1678, Sarah Cooper; had Nathaniel, and prob. more ch. was freem. 1677, and d. 12 June 1725, aged, says that gr.st. a. 80 yrs. and I think he was very near 82. THOMAS, Salem 1643. THOMAS, Boston 1671, came from Bristol, was s. of John, sent by his f. to look after the est. of Nathaniel the first, as bef. said, and prob. went home again. THOMAS, Billerica, s. of William, m. 1 Apr. 1662, Rebecca, d. of Thomas Paine of Dedham, had Rebecca, and four s. whose names and dates I find not. He was freem. 1678. 

WILLIAM, Cambridge, brot. from Eng. w. Mary, by wh. he had Mary, bapt. in Eng.; Thomas, b. Oct. 1636; Sarah, 27 Jan. 1638; Nathaniel, [[vol. 3, p. 370]] 28 July 1643; William, bur. 22 Mar. 1646, quite young, we may be sure; besides prob. a former Nathaniel, who d. Jan. 1640; freem. 1645; one of the orig. proprs. of Billerica 1658, and d. 10 Dec. 1668. Twelve of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at the N. E. coll. of wh. two were at Harv.

PATTERSON OR PATTISON, ANDREW, Stratford, came from Scotland, it is said, in 1685, by the Henry and Francis, to Perth Amboy. He was accomp. by Robert McEwen and ten other passeng. wh. fled from the severities of the admin. against the convenanters, as McEwen writes in his journal of his sh. in the fight of Bothwell Bridge, a few yrs. bef. and he is careful to note the day of sail. 5 Sept. the day of land. 18 Dec. of that yr. and the day of reach. Stratford, to wh. they came on foot, 18 Feb. foll. as feeling confid. of more security in Conn. than could be expect. under the proprieta. governm. of East Jersey. No battle in ancient or mod. times is more exactly desrib. than this, from wh. the friends of the suffers escap. to New Eng. as the fervid pen of Sir Walter Scott exhibits it. Patterson m. 19 Feb. 1691, Elizabeth Peat, had Sarah, b. 17 Mar. 1694; Charles 4 Apr. 1703; Mary, 27 Mar. 1706; and John, 24 1701; Hannah, 18 Apr. 11703; Mary, 27 Mar. 1706; and John, 24 June 1711, Y. c. 1728, wh. liv. to 20 Jan. 1806; and his name is ment. in the town rec. of S. so late as Mar. 1735. ANDREW, Billerica, s. of James the first, m. 1697, Elizabeth Kibbee of Charlestown, had James, b. 13 Aug. 1707, or as Whitmore in his accurate Medford Geneal. says, 5 Oct. of that yr. Perhaps in Mar. preced. he went on a voyage and was lost at sea. 

CHARLES, Stratford, s. of Andrew the first, m. 29 Jan. 1719, Eunice Nicolls or Nichols, had Andrew and Abraham, tw. b. 25 Oct. foll.; Sarah, 3 June 1721; Elizabeth 19 Nov. 1722; James 24, bapt. 26 July 1724; and Elnathan, 25 Jan. 1726. DAVID is the name of one of those wretched Scotch prisoners, from Worcester fight, sent out by the John and Sarah from London, Nov. 1651, to be sold in Boston, where they arr. in May foll. Of him, as of nineteen twentieths, or a greater proportion, of this fellow sufferes, no more is ever heard. EDWARD, New Haven 1639, prob. the man name. by Mason, in his Hist. as one of his soldiers in the Pequot war, 1637, in wh. he did much serv. and perhaps the passeng. in the Christian from London 1635, aged 33, had w. in 1647, but only ch. ment. were Elizabeth bapt. July 1644, who m. Thomas Smith of the same, and John in Jan. foll. obt. a gr. of ld. in 1670, sixty acres, "where he can find it." but the prob. d. without sight of it. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI 164. EDWARD, Rehoboth 1643; Hingham 1652, where he had Faith, b. 20 Jan. 1656; Dover, 1657, may be the same person, or more than one, at Hingham call, carpenter. 

JAMES, Billerica, perhaps, but not very likely, br. of David, came prob. in the said freight list [[vol. 3, p. 371]] of the John and Sarah from London, Nov. 1651, and if so, he is one of only four or five that prosper. here, among the great crowd of romantic young followers in Scotland of Charles II. wh. in the bloody days of 3 Sept. of the success. yrs. 1650 and 1652, were capt. on the fields of Cromwell's glory at Dunbar and Worcester, and transport. to the colonies to be sold in the shambles like other cattle, of wh. the cargoes to Boston would amount to as many hundreds. He was of B. perhaps carr. by his owner 1659, freem. 1690, and m. 29 May 1662. Rebecca. d. of Andrew Stevenson of Cambridge, had Mary, b. 22 Aug. 1666; James, 28 Feb. 1669, d. young; Andrew, 4 Apr. 1672; John, 8 Apr. 1675; Joseph, 1 Jan 1678; Rebecca, 18 July 1680, d. young; James, again, 13 Apr. 1683; and Jonathan, 31 Jan. 1686. He serv. in the great war with the Ind. 1675, and with other soldiers, when his merits were duly consid. near. sixty yrs. aft. was reward. with gr. of ld. Narraganset, No. 6, and his gr.s. drew the proper share. His will pro. 1701, names br. in law, Andrew Stevenson. It is by hims. confident. mark. in his descript. or otherwise might have been noted with a slur as that of "a Scotchman." Mary, the eldest ch. m. 30 Jan. 1689, Peter Proctor of Chelmsford. 

JAMES, Billerica, s. of the preced. rem. to Dunstable, there had w. Mary, prob. brot. from B. s. John, b. 10 Apr. 1711; and a. 1718 rem. to Groton, there d. 1737. No doubt he had other ch. and James of G. Jonathan, Hezekiah,and Mary were their names, but the order or dates of birth for all are unkn. JOHN, Billerica, br. of the preced. m. at Concord, 29 Dec. 1702, Joanna Hall, had Keziah, b. 5 Feb. 1704; Rebecca, 15 Jan. 1706; Hannah, 9 July 1710; Mary, 19 Mar. 1714; and Elizabeth 24 Feb. 1723. JOHN, Stratford, s. of the first Andrew, by w. Mary, had Parthenia, b. 29 Nov. 1730, bapt. 28 Mar. foll.; Josiah, 25 Mar. 1732, bapt. 1 Apr. of next yr.; John, 11 Dec. 1734; Ashbel, 3 Apr. bapt. same mo. 1737; Ephraim, 22 Mar. 1739; Stephen, bapt. 3 May 1741; Mary, 16 Jan. 1743; Matthew, 17 Mar. 1745; Isaac, 24 June 1747, and Parthenia, again, 7 May 1749. 

JONATHAN, br. of the first John, liv. at Watertown, 1707, was a tailor, perhaps connnect. with his br. Joseph, rem. perhaps to Deerfield, there m. a. 1713, Mary, d. of deac. Eliezur Hawks, had Jonathan, b. 18 Dec. 1714, d. at 7 yrs.; and Eliezur, 1 Sept. 1716; rem. to Northfield, and d. 1718. His wid. d. 1757, aged 61. JOSEPH, Watertown, tailor, br. of the preced. m. at. Sudbury, 22 Sept. 1701, Mercy, the youngest ch. prob. of John Goodnow the sec. tho. her name by Barry is Mary, ahd Mercy, b. 1 Sept. 1702; Mary, 16 Aug. 1704; Lydia, 9 Oct. 1706, d. young; Eunice, 19 Apr. 1708; Joseph, 27 Aug. 1710; Hepzibah, 7 Dec. 1713; Sybil, bapt. 27 Nov. 1715; Lydia, again, b. 12 Oct. 1718; and Elizabeth 27 Sept. 1727, but this by third w. m. 19 Nov. 1724, Rebecca, wid. of James Livermore, d. of John [[vol. 3, p. 372]] Myrick; as the three preced. were by sec. w. Mary; as the first d. 1 Sept. 1710, after b. of Joseph. PETER, Saybrook, m. 11 June 1678, Elizabeth Rithway. Geneal. Reg. IV. 140. Judd thot. the surname was Peterson. 

WILLIAM, Boston 1665, merch. WILLIAM, Stratford, s. of Andrew the first, by w. Ann had Joseph, b. 18 Apr. 1724; Beulah, 4 Aug. 1725; Ann, 8 Sept. bapt. 11 Dec. 1726; Charles, 8, bapt. 14 Apr. 1728; William, 4, bapt. 8 Feb. 1730; Ann, again, 3 July bapt. 1 Aug. 1731; Eunice, 10, bapt. 13 Jan. 1734; Thomas, 24 Oct. 1736, bapt. same day; and Abigail, 6 Apr. 1739. Seven of this name has been gr. at N. E. coll. in 1834, of wh. one was at Harv.

PAUL, BENJAMIN, New Haven 1639, may be the man ment. by Felt, at Salem 1647 with a final y added to his name. DANIEL, New Haven 1643, perhaps br. of Benjamin, may be the man who liv. at Kittery 1652, when he acknowl. the governm. of Mass. and was of the gr. jury. EDWARD, Taunton, s. perhaps youngest, of William of the same, m. 23 Aug. 1693, Esther Bobbit. JOHN, Malden, m. 3 May 1657, Lydia, d. of Joel Jenkins, had John, b. 25 Aug. 1658, d. soon; and Lydia, 9 Mar. 1660; perhaps others, certain. Elizabeth Dec. 1668; and Joel, Oct. 1676, d. next mo. JOHN, Freetown, s. of William of Taunton, m. 26 May 1692, Dorothy Walker, ahd Dorothy, and d. 23 Mar. 1718, says the gr.st. and I kn. no more. 

RICHARD, Boston, soldier, hired in 1636, for the castle, as in Winthrop II. 346, was two yrs. aft. one of the proprs. of Taunton. See Baylies I. 286 and II. 267. Perhaps Hannah, b. at T. 4 Oct. 1657 was his ch. Some fam. memo. tell of his m. 8 Nov. 1638, to Margery Tarne, of b. of s. Samuel next yr. and of the wid. m. 1662, Henry Withington, the Dorchester Elder, and of her surv. him, and d. 20 May 1676; but most of these details are uncert.

PAYSON, EDWARD, Roxbury, freem. 13 May 1640, m. 20 Aug. 1640, Ann Parke, perhaps sis. of William, and she d. 10 Sept. of the yr. foll. hav. b. Mary, 8 days bef. who prob. d. young. he m. 1 Jan. 1642, Mary Eliot, d.

EDWARD, Rowley, s. of the preced. freem. 1680, ord. 25 Oct. 1682, m. 7 Nov. 1683, Elizabeth d. of Rev. Samuel Phillips, with wh. he was colleag. had twenty ch. of wh. the names and dates of seventeen are kn. but one half d. bef. him, and some of the s. were Samuel, H. C. 1716; Edward; Eliot; Stephen; David; and Phillips, of wh. this last d. young. His w. d. 1 Oct. 1724 in her 60th yr. and he m. 1726, Elizabeth d. of William Whittingham, wid. of Hon. Samuel Appleton; and d. 22 Aug. 1732. EPHRAIM, Dover, freem. 1685, unless there be error, as I suspect, in the rec. EPHRAIM, Dorchester, s. of Edward the first, freem. 1690, m. 29 May 1684, Catharine, d. of Henry Leadbetter of the same, but Mary, b. 23 July 1685; Sarah, 22 Oct. 1686; RUTH, 2 Mar. 1689, prob. d. soon; Ephraim, 26 Mar. 1693; Ruth, again, 7 Apr. 1697; Jonathan, 19 Aug. 1699; and Susanna, 28 June 1703; and he took, as sec. w.

GILES, Roxbury, came in the Hopewell, capt. Bundock, from London 1635, aged 26, with many others of those who sat down, there, prob. an Essex man, and perhaps br. of the first Edward, was freem. 18 Apr. 1637, and in that mo. mo. Elizabeth Dowell, had Elizabeth b. 3 Feb. 1640, d. in few days; Samuel, 7 Nov. 1641; Elizabeth again, 4, bapt. 9 Feb. 1645; Sarah, bapt. 16 July 1648; and possib. others, but not ment. in town or ch. rec. as indeed is not in the town rec. this last, bec. he rem. to Dorchester, where the rec. were destroy. by fire. Yet he was deac. at R. and d. 28 Jan. 1689, aged 78. Sarah m. 10 Apr. 1678, Elisha Foster, and next, 26 Mar. 1685, Ebenezer Wiswall, and d. 11 June 1714. Elizabeth m. 15 Feb. 1667, Hopestill Foster, and next Edmund Brown. JOHN, Dorchester, freem. 1680. Prob. he was eldest s. of Edward, may have m. Bathsheba, d. of Thomas Tileston, and liv. in Roxbury, there by sec. w. Hannah, had Edward, b. 26 June 1685; Joseph, 24 Feb. 1687; and Benjamin, 25 Oct. 1688. SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of Giles, m. 31 Mar. 1677, Prudence Lincoln, had no issue, was freem. 1690, d. 12 Apr. 1697. 

SAMUEL, Dorchester, youngest s. of Edward the first, was freem. 1690, and d. 24 Nov. 1721; by w. Mary, d. of Elder Thomas Wiswall, had Mary, b. 9 Mar. 1689, prob. d. soon; Samuel, 4 Sept. 1693; Mary, again, 9 Apr. 1697; and others, as we learn from [[vol. 3, p. 374]] his will, in Vol. XXII. 150, made 21 Nov. 1721, pro. 4 Dec. foll. five ds. Sarah, Mary, Dorcas, Elizabeth and Ann, to ea. of wh. it gives L80, and s. Edward and George, beside Phillips, b. 29 Feb bapt. 12 Mar. 1704, H. C. 1724, min. of Walpole, ancest. of many disting. clerg. In the Catal. of H. C. the name was erron. print, as I thought, and that he was call. for his gr. gr.f. Philip Eliot; and it was prob. the connex. of his gr. uncle, Rev. Edward of Rowley with Rev. Samuel Phillips, that in the later generat. brought the surname into use for the bapt. name. Misled by the copy of his will, in that public rec. Vol. XXII, wherein the name is plain, giv. in three places, Philip, I long felt confid .of the desir. correction; but on turning to the orig. in the handwriting of the testator, not found without some hours' search, it is just as plain, if not as elegant, chirogr. Phillips in ea. of those three places. How earnest would have been the malediction of Judge Sewall, had be kn. the negligence of his Register. For him the will provid. that part of his sh. of the est. was to be paid after his tak. the sec. degree at the Coll. Samuel's wid. d. 25 May 1727, in her 59th yr. and this is hardly consit. with her being d. of Elder Thomas Wiswall, as Jackson makes her. Of the eldest s. Phillips, H. C. 1754, D. D. a well drawn charact. is in Eliot's Biogr. Dict. and of a younger s. Seth, H. C. 1777, D. D. it will be honor eno. that he was f. of the celebr. Edward, H. C. 1803, D. D. min. of Portland. As the celebr. evangelist was my partic. friend at the univ. and afterwards, I am anxious to correct a petty mistake, by wh. Farmer would magnify his reput. calling him of the fifth descent, the whole line being clerg. from the Rowley min. 

Out of such a mixt. of falsehood and truth is tradition common, engend. He was sec. in desc. from Philip, and only f. and gr. f. were clerg. In 1834, twenty-two of his name, says Farmer, had been gr. at Harv. Yale and Dart. Seven of the thirteen from Harv. were clerg.

PAYTON, BEZALEEL, Boston 1642, mariner, m. 19 Oct. of that yr. Mary Greenough of Sandwich, sis. of William of Boston, had Sarah, b. 9, bapt. 13 Aug. 1643; Mary, 7, bapt. 17 Mary 1646; perhaps also Bezaleel; but d. prob. in distant ld. for his inv. was rend. 24 Nov. 1651, and his wid. m. 3 of next mo.

"of good parentage and fair condition," as Winthrop I. 269, tells, was, with exempha. justice, hang. for a very cowardly murder, with two assoc. in detect. of wh. Roger Williams gained much credit. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 171-6 Farmer refers to Increase Mather's Ind. Wars, p. 55, and I can add that Baylies, I. 245-8 is equal. full and judicious. But in the contempo. hist. of Gov.

Felt finds ment. 1630, may have been f. of John jr. of M. freem. 1683.
