PETERSON,CORNELIUS, Boston 1685. HENRY, and JOHN of Lyme, were of the train band 1678, and no more is kn. of either, exc. that John was aft. of Duxbury, and m. Mary, d. of George Soule; and that Henry by w. Marah, m. 15 Apr. 1683, had Sarah, b. 20 Oct. 1686.
PETTIFORD, PETFORD, or PITTFORD, PETER, Salem, 1641, Mr. Felt found ment. of, but nothing is told of him, exc. that heresid. at Marblehead 1648. Among Charlestown bapt. is Samuel, s. of Mary Pettiford, br. Baker's d. on 12 Sept. 1669.
PETTELL, ANTHONY, Marblehead 1653, a fisherman, perhaps from Guernsey.
PETTIBONE, JOHN, Windsor, freem. 1658, m. 15 Feb. 1665, Sarah, d. of Bigot Egglestone, had John, b. 15 Dec. 1665; Sarah, 24 Sept. 1667, d. young; Stephen, 3 Oct. 1669; besides Samuel, and sev. ds. of wh. was ano. Sarah, of uncert. date. he had est. in that part made Simsbury, was one of the first sett. and there with John, Stephen, and Samuel, was liv. 1712. Three of the name have been gr. at Yale.

RICHARD, Newbury, came from Staffordsh. tradit. says, was first at Salem, there m.

PETTES, or PETTIT, GILBERT, Salem 1668. JOHN, Roxbury 1639, of wh. Mr. Ellis in his Hist. says nothing, but the name occurs, yet with fam. of sev. heads, rem. prob. to Stamford, or Long Island, where I find at Newtown, Thomas, in 1660; Nathaniel, 1667; and John, in 1686. Yet it may well be that his s. John, wh. m. Sarah, d. of Daniel Scofield, was of Stamford 1669. THOMAS, Exeter 1639, a signer of the orig. combina. in 1647 was the chief milit. man.
PETTS, JOHN, a soldier k. by the Ind. 19 Oct. 1675, at Hatfield.
PETTY, or PETTEE, JOHN, Springfield, had liv. at Windsor, but m. at Boston 30 Mar. 1662, Ann Canning, had at W. James, b. same yr.; and at S.

PETER, sail. from Salem on fishing voyage, k. by the Ind. in the autumn of 1677. Felt II. 213. PETER, Haverhill 1680. Mirick, 85. It maybe the same name as Pattee, wh. is seen in New Hampsh.
PETYGOOD, or PETGOOD, PETER, Marblehead 1641. RICHARD, Ipswich 1641.
PEVERLY, JOHN, Portsmouth, one of the men sent over, 1631, by the Mason, the Patentee. THOMAS, Portsmouth, perhaps s. of the preced. d. aft. 1670, leav. by w. wh. may have been a d. of Thomas Walford, s. John, Thomas, lazarus, Samuel, and Jeremiah.

Jan. 1690; rem. to Lancaster, and d. 30 Nov. of uncert. yr. and there Elizabeth m. Samuel Willard of L. EPHRAIM, Simsbury, s. of Edward, m. 11 or 21 May 1691, Mary Jaggers, had Ephraim, b. 28 Sept. 1692; and d. 26 Nov. by rec. but, in Stiles, 739, 20 Oct. 1697. GEORGE, Dorchester, freem. 6 May 1635, rem. with Warham to Windsor, by first w. said to be nam. Phillury, d. of Philip Randall, wh. d. 29 Apr. 1648, had Isaac, b. 20 Aug. 1638; Abraham, 22 Jan. 1643; and Joseph, 24 June 1647, wh. d. soon, as did Abraham in the same yr.; ano. Joseph, whether by first or sec. w. is unkn. He m. 2, or as ano. acco. is, 30 Nov. 1648, Frances, wh. had been wid. Clark, and then was wid. of Thomas Dewey, and had Jacob, 7 Feb. 1650; John, 15 Feb. 1652; and Nathaniel, 7 Dec. 1653; rem. to Westfield, there had more ch. and d. 8 May 1687, but Stiles in Hist. 743, says 9 July 1678. Six s. were then liv. no d. is nam. His wid. d. 27 Sept. 1690. HENRY, Salem, from London, came in the Hercules 1634, m. 1652, Hannah Bassett, but as sec. w. in my opin. for there is some prob. that he had m. a d. of Thomas Tresler, by wh. he had s. John, rememb. in the will of his gr.mo. Perhaps he was a Quaker, at least, Felt II. 582 tells how Hannah P. in Oct. 1659, was admonish. But she may have been w. of Nicholas P. ISAAC, Windsor, eldest s. of George of the same, m. 11 May 1663, or 11 Mar. 1664 (Parsons give both dates only six lines apart in Geneal. Reg. V. 369, so that it is quite doubtful wh. day we should prefer, but Stiles takes the earlier), Ann, d. of the sec. William Gaylord, had Isaac, b. 18 Sept. 1666, wh. had 3 ch. yet d. at 32 yrs.; Sarah, bapt. 4 July 1670; and rem. to Westfield, there was freem. 1671, had John, b. 27 Dec. 1672, bapt. 29 June 1673; Hannah, 5 Nov. 1674; Hezekiah, 9 July 1677; Joseph, 28 Nov. 1679; Noah, 14 Oct. 1684; and Ebenezer, 6 June 1687; beside Daniel, and ano. both d. young. His w. d. Sept. 1690, and he d. 8 May 1687, or 21 Sept. 1725. Why so gr. interval betw. var. dates is seen, I have no explanat. JACOB, Westfield, br. of the preced. m. 2 May 1672, Dorothy, sec. d. of John Ingersol, had Dorothy, b. as one tells, 18 Oct. but Goodwin says Dec. 1673, d. in few wks.; Dorothy, again, 10 May 1675; Hannah, 26 Nov. 1677; Israel, 3 Apr. 1681; Benjamin, 8 Jan. 1684; Joseph, 5 Aug. 1686; and Jedediah, 7 Dec. 1688; and d. 6 oct. 1689. His wid. m. a Root. JAMES, Boston 1657. JOHN, Charlestown, by w. Catharine had Catharine, b. 8 May 1659, says the Middlesex rec. and the same authty, adds that Catharine Phelps, d. 19 June foll. But I find no Phelps in Charlestown, for a long time bef. or aft. and John Phillips at that time had w. Catharine wh. may have had that ch. In some rec. the name is plain Philps, and this shows how easily one may be converted to the other. JOHN, Salem, perhaps s. of Henry, b. w. Abigail had Abigail, b. 21 Apr. 1669; John, 6 Feb. 1671; Henry, 3 Apr. 1673; Joseph, 7 Dec. 1675; Abigail, 7 Jan. 1678; Samuel, 6 Jan. 1680; and Hannah, 12 Apr. 1683. JOHN, Windsor, br. of

Watertown, freem. 10 May 1643, may be indebted to a careless clk. for this spelling of a name, that I should prob. write Veazie, with confidence.
PHILBRICK, or PHILBROOK, sometimes FILBRICK, JAMES, Hampton 1644, prob. s. of Thomas, was first perhaps at Watertown, had w.

Joseph Walker of Portsmouth, and next, 29 July 1686, John Seavey. THOMAS, Hampton, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. mehitable, had Elizabeth b. 17 oct. 1686. WILLAIM, Hampton, may have been s. of Thomas the sec. by w. Mary had Walter, b. 10 Nov. 1690; and Mary, 20 May 1692. Of many under this surname I fail to find connex.
PHILLIPS, ANDREW, Charlestown, by w. Elizabeth had Andrew; Elizabeth b. 29 May 1657; and Ephraim, 31 Mar. 1659; perhaps others.
