PICKARD, *JOHN, Rowley 1645, m. Jane Crosby, had John, b. 1653; Samuel, 1663, and three, or, by ano. story, six ds. was rep. 1661 and 95, unless this last yr. belongs to his s. and d. 1697, aged 75. His wid. d. 20 Feb. 1716, in 89th yr. Mary, one of his ds. m. 14 Feb. 1671, John Pearson, the sec. *JOHN, Rowley, s. of the preced. freem. 1683, was perhaps rep. 1695. *SAMUEL, Rowley, br. of the preced. m. Eliz. Bradstreet, had a d. and his w. d. early. He next m. Eliz. d. of Thomas Hale, had Samuel, b. 1689; Thomas, 1691; Moses, 1694; Joseph, 1701; beside three ds. He was rep. 1723 and 4. Descend. at R. have been numer. and respect. Farmer ment. an Edmund P. from Northam in Devonsh. at Piscataqua, a. 1661.

PICKE, JOHN, Cambridge, by w. Mary had Abigail, b. 22 Apr. 1642. Perhaps it is spelt otherwise in some places.

PICKERAM or PICKRAM, GEORGE, Watertown, prob. s. of John, brot. by his f. from Eng. 1630; unit. with his wid. mo. Esther, 1 Sept. 1646, in sale of est. JOHN, Watertown, d. 10 Dec. 1630. He prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop, had, by w. Esther, s. George, beside John, who was bur. 6 July 1639, and d. Joan, wh. d. 3 days aft. her f. None of this name is found in div. of Shawshin lds. 1652, among people of Cambridge and W. I think it may be the same as Pickering.

PICKERING, JOHN, Ipswich 1634, a carpenter, rem. to Salem 1637, had there gr. of ld. by w. Eliz. had John, prob. b. that yr; Jonathan, 1639; Eliz. bapt. 3 Mar. 1644, d. soon; and Eliz. again, perhaps b. 3, bapt. 17 Aug. 1645, prob. d. young; and he d. 1655 or 1657. The will of 30 July 1655 was pro. 1 July 1657. His wid. m. 25 Dec. of the latter yr [[vol 3, p. 423]]. John Deacon of Lynn. JOHN, Portsmouth 1635, perhaps had been as early as 1630, may have rem. to Cambridge, by w. Mary had Lydia, b. 5 Nov. 1638; rem. to Portsmouth, prob. there d. 18 Jan. 1669; but one of this name is by Lewis claim. for his town of Lynn 1639, who, if transient resid. may be either of these first two. 

JOHN, Salem, s. of the first John of the same, freem. 1669, m. 1657, Alice, d. of William Flint, had John, b. 10 Sept. 1658; Jonathan, 27 Sept. 1660, d. young; Joseph, 9 Sept. 1663, d. young; Benjamin, 11 or 15 Jan. 1666; Edward, d. soon; Sarah, 7 Sept. 1668; William, 11 Jan 1671; Eliz. 7 Sept. 1674; and Hannah, 2 July 1677. In the regular descent from one John to ano. est. in Salem (perhaps got by the first John, 1642, from Emmanuel Downing under power to his w. as a reasona. tradit. gives, to pay for his s. George's commencem. dinner), is now, in part, enjoy. by John of the seventh generat. He was ancest. of the disting. Timothy, H. C. 1763, whose s. and gr.s. have been gr. at the same; was lieut. and d. 5 May 1694, aged 56; and his wid. Sarah d. 27 Dec. 1714. *JOHN, Portsmouth, s. of the first John of the same, m. 10 Jan 1665, Mary Stanyan, had John b. 1 Dec. 1666; Mary, 18 July 1668; Thomas, 6 Apr. 1679, d. next yr.; two Sarahs wh. d. 1671 and 3, and perhaps others; was capt. rep. to Boston 1691; and in N. H. was speaker of the assemb. as was his namesake, the elder br. of Timothy in that of Mass. at a later day. He was liv. 1718, and ancest. of Hon. John of Portsmouth, H. C. 1761, wh. d. 11 Apr. 1805; and prob. William of Concord, H. C. 1797. His d. Mary m. John Plaisted. 

JONATHAN, Salem, s. of John the first of the same, ship-carpenter, m. 19 Mar. 1666, Jane, d. of doctor Thomas Cromwell, had Jane., b. last week of Nov. 1667, d. young; Eliz. 2 or 4 June 1669; Mary, 1 Dec. 1670; Ann, Aug. 1672; Jonathan, 11 May 1674; Sarah, 25 Jan. 1676; John, bapt. 19 May 1678; but these five last ment. all d. young; Hannah, bapt. 28 May 1682; and Mercy. Thirteen of this name, had, in 1831, been gr. at Harv.

PICKES, JOHN, Piscataqua, i.e. prob. Dover or Kittery 1640; but Mr. Judd, on examin. of the original rec. presum. the name to intend Pike.

PICKET, ADAM, New London, youngest s. of John of the same, m. 16 May 1680, Hannah, d. of Daniel Wetherell, had Adam, b. 1681; and John, 1685; and d. 1691. His bros. d. unm. and s. Adam d. without issue. CHRISTOPHER, Boston, in that part call. Muddy riv. now Brookline, m. June 1647, Eliz. Stow, d. of John, had John, b. 6 Sept. 1657; was liv. at B. 1661; and 14 Oct. 1675, at Scarborough, prob. a soldier, witness to nuncup. will of Arthur Alger. DANIEL, Stratford, youngest s. of the first John of the same, m. 13 Sept. 1683, Mary, d. of John [[vol. 3, p. 424]] Offit, had Samuel, b. 23 Nov. 1684, d. young; Margaret, 14 Aug. 1686; Daniel, 27 Feb. 1688, prob. d. soon; Samuel, again, 31 Oct. 1689; Daniel, again, 1 Oct. 1691; Mary, 15 Jan. 1693; Comfort, a d. 6 Sept. 1694; and Rebecca, 5 Mar. 1701. JAMES, Stratford 1669, br. of the preced. went to Norwalk 1673, m. 17 July of that yr. Rebecca, d. of Ralph Keeler, had James, b. 7 May 1674; and perhaps rem. 

*JOHN, Salem 1648, had John, James, Thomas, and Sarah, in Nov. of that yr. bapt. together; Rebecca, 30 June 1650; and Daniel, 25 Jan. 1652. I do not find the name of w. among ch. mem. and his is by Felt copied Pigket, follow. the sound. he rem. 1660 to Stratford, there was constable 1667, one of the selectmen in 1669, and rep. 1673 and 5. His w. Margaret d. 6 Oct. 1683, and he d. 11 Apr. foll. Sarah m. 19 Dec. 1665, Robert Lane of S. and Rebecca M. 31 Dec. 1673, James Sention of Norwalk. JOHN, Boston, whose s. John, by w.

Moses Noyes of Lyme; and Mercy m. 1 Nov. 1682, Samuel Fosdick, and next, John Arnold. JOHN, Stratford, s. of John of the same, freem. 1670, m. 19 Jan. 1673, Mary Cross, or some such name, had Rebecca, b. 31 Dec. foll.; John, 5 Jan. 1678; Sarah, 8 Mar. 1681; and James, 5 Jan. 1686.

BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of the preced. by first w. Miss Hasket, had only John; he next m. 26 Oct. 1704, Abigail, sec. d. of Timothy Lindall, had Abigail, b. 9 Feb. 1706; Benjamin, 28 Jan. 1708, an honorable counsellor, wh. was gr.f. of the late Benjamin Pickman, H. C. 1784, mem. of U. S. Cong. and d. 2 Aug. 1773; William, 1 Oct. 1710; Samuel, 19 Jan. 1712; Elizabeth 22 Jan. 1714; Caleb, 10 June 1715; Rachel, 25 July 1717; and Sarah, 1 Dec. 1718; and he d. next yr. on 26 Apr.

Nathaniel, John, Benjamin, William, Samuel, and perhaps Tabitha, and Mary, beside Bethia, wh. all m. the last, 15 Feb. 1673, with John Silsbee; Mary, 22 June 1665, with Robert Hodges; and Tabitha, 30 Aug. 1664, with Edmund Feveryear. 

NATHANIEL, Salem, s. of the preced. had Tabitha, b. Nov. 1670, d. in few wks.; Tabitha, again, 4 Nov. 1671; Elizabeth 25 Dec. 1673; and Nathaniel. 13 Apr. 1676. SAMUEL, Salem, br. of the preced. by w. Lydia, perhaps d. of Peter Palfrey, had Sarah, wh. d. 4 Dec. 1659; Samuel, wh. d. 24 May 1660; Sarah, again 7 Feb. 1662, perhaps b. at Lynn; Samuel, again, 21 Nov. 1664; Peter, 14 Aug. 1667, d. at 13 mos.; Peter, again, 27 Nov. 1669; Lydia, 7 Dec. 1672; and Joshua, 19 Aug. 1675. WILLIAM, Salem, br. of the preced. m. 24 June 1673, Elizabeth Eastwick, had William b. 7 Sept. 1676, posthum. and d. prob. 1676, for to her was admin. giv. 28 June of that yr.

PICKTON, THOMAS, Salem, had, says Felt, gr. of ld. 1639, was on Beverly side, by will of 19 Oct. pro. 28 Nov. 1677, gave all his est. to w. Ann, wh. d. in 1683, aged 83.

PICKWORTH, AMARIAH, Salem, had, says very good autho. d. Rachel, who m. the sec. John Sibley, but I fell no small degree of hesitat. bec. the first John S. m. Rachel Pickworth, as is said. BENJAMIN, Salem, s. of John, had w. Elizabeth nam. in his will, 20 Aug. 1681. JOHN, Salem 1637, had gone from some part of the Bay to Plymouth 1631, got a w. and went back, says Gov. Bradford in letter of Feb. 1632. His w. Ann join. the ch. 1638, and had bapt. Ruth, Hannah, and John, 14 Oct. that yr.; Samuel; Joseph, 12 Feb. 1643; Rachel, 3 May 1646; Benjamin, 2 July 1648; Sarah, 6 oct. 1650; Abigail, Oct. 1652; and Jacob, 3 Sept. 1654. He had gr. of ld at New London 1651, but forfeit. for non resid. Ruth m. Nathaniel Masters; Rachel m. John Sibley; and Sarah m. 25 Mar. 1680, Joseph Mazury. His will of 27 June 1663, was pro. 25 Nov. foll. names 4 s. the first ment. and 3 ds. but inv. had been tak. three mos. Elias, of Beverly 1687, may have been ano. s. or perhaps a gr.s. 

JOHN, Salem, s. of the preced. d. 1681, prob. unm. for his br. Joseph, as admor. giv. inv. 29 Nov. in that yr. propos. div. of the prop. one third to Ann his mo. one third to hims. and one third to two sis. prob. Rachel and Sarah, and we can hardly doubt that the other three were d. SAMUEL, Salem, a soldier, k. in Philip's war, 15 Dec. 1675, was s. of John, m. 3 Nov. 1667, Sarah, d. prob. of the first John Marston, [[vol. 3, p. 426]] had Sarah, b. 17 July 1668; Hannah, 3 May 1670; Samuel, 3 Sept. 1672; and Mary, 30 July 1675. he left wid. Sarah. See General. Reg. II. 243. I regret to add, that young Samuel was an unhappy witness in 1692, at some of the witch trials, and, of course, was led to swear to more than was true.

PID, RICHARD, freem. of Mass. 22 June 1642, is wholly unkn. to me.

PIDDELL, CORBITT, of Conn. as strange a name as the preced. had a suit in Court 1649.

PIDCOCK, or PIDCOKE, GEORGE, Scituate m. 1640, Sarah Richards, was liv. 1670, and Deane, 324, says no fam. is heard of. In the Col. Rec. it is found, that he gave to the town that yr. both hims. and his propr. as being too feeble to manage his affairs.

PIDGE. See Pigg.

PIERCE, PEARSE, PEARS, PEIRSE, or PEARCE, ABRAHAM, Plymouth 1629, had sh. in div. of cattle that yr. of Duxbury 1643, was a propr. of Bridgewater 1645, by w. Rebecca had Abraham, b. Jan. 1638; Isaac; and three ds. of wh. Alice was bapt. at Barnstable, 21 July 1650; and d. at D. 1673. Haz. I. 326; Baylies II. 254. ABRAHAM, Duxbury, s. of the preced. by w. Hannah had Abraham; John; and Samuel; and d. Jan. 1718. ANTHONY, Watertown, eldest s. of John of the same, b. in Eng. freem. 3 Sept. 1634, but by Felt is claim. for Salem that yr. yet perhaps against the stronger right of W. for here the rec. says by w. Sarah or Ann (for he had two, but Ann was the surv.) was b. Mary, 28 Dec. 1633; John, eldest s. whose date is not kn.; Mary, again, 1636; Jacob, 15 Sept. 1637; Daniel, 1 Jan. 1640; Martha, 24 Apr. 1641; Joseph; Benjamin, 1649; and Judith, 18 July 1650; and he d. 9 May 1678. Mary m. Ralph Read of Woburn; and Judith m. 16 Feb. 1667, John Sawin. AZERIKAM, or AZRAKIM, Warwick, is suppos. to have come in from Rehoboth, or Swanzey, had ch. Samuel and Tabitha, perhaps others. BENJAMIN, Scituate, s. of Michael, m. 1678, Martha, d. of James Adams, had Martha, Jerusha, Benjamin, Ebenezer, Persis, Caleb, Thomas, Adams, Jermiah, and Elisha, b. betw. 1679 and 99. Deane. 

BENJAMIN, Watertown, s. of Anthony, m. 15 Jan. 1678, Hannah, d. of Joshua Brooks of Concord; had eight ch. says Bond, but he names only Hannah, b. 25 Dec. 1679; Benjamin, 29 Apr. 1682; Grace, 4 June 1685; Sarah, 1 Jan. 1688; Samuel, 22 Aug. 1689; Lydia, 3 Oct. 1692; and Hannah, again, 2 Jan. 1700; was freem . 1690; but the time of d. is not ment. Benjamin, Woburn, s. perhaps of Robert, more prob. of Thomas of the same, by w. Mary had Benjamin, b. 28 Aug. 1689; Mary, 29 Jan. 1692; Esther, 25 Oct. 1696; Rebecca, Oct. 1698; Deborah, 5 Dec. 1700; Thomas, 23 Nov. 1702; and Zurishaddai, 22 June 1705. DANIEL Watertown, blacksmith, came in the [[vol. 3, p. 427]] Elizabeth from Ipswich, Co. suff. (but call. of London by Coffin) 1634, aged 23; freem. 2 May 1638, rem. to Newbury, by w. Sarah had Daniel, b. 15 May 1642; Joshua, 15 May 1643; and Martha, 14 Feb. 1648. He sw. fidel. 1652, and m. 26 Dec. 1654, Ann, perhaps wid. of Thomas Millerd, and d. 27 Nov. 1677, leav. good est. His wid. d. 27 Nov. 1690; and his d. m. perhaps a Thorpe. 

DANIEL, Groton, s. of Anthony, as from Butler's Hist. we learn, by w. Elizabeth and Elizabeth b 16 May 1665; Daniel, 28 Nov. 1666; John, 18 Aug. 1668; Ephraim, 15 Oct. 1673; and Josiah, 2 May 1675. Of course, the Ind. hostil. drove him away; and Bond fixes him at Watertown, and says he had Jospeh; Abigail, b. 3 Jan. 1682; Hannah, bapt. 16 Jan. 1687; and Benjamin, the same day; the last three at W. ++ *DANIEL, Newbury, s. of Daniel of the same, by w. Joanna had Joanna; Daniel, b. 20 Dec. 1663; Ann, 22 May 1666; Benjamin, 16 Feb. 1669; Joshua, 16 Oct. 1671; Thomas, 1 May 1674; Martha, 26 Feb. 1677; Sarah, 3 Oct. 1679; George, 5 Mar. 1682; Mary, 14 Apr. 1685; John, 16 Oct. 1687; and Catharine, 18 Sept. 1690; was a capt. rep. 1682 and 3, of the council of safety on the revo. 1689, col. of one of the Essex reg. rep. under the new chart, in the import. yr. 1692; and d. 22 Jan. tho. Hutch, II. 48, makes it 4 Apr. 1704. His w. d. 26 Sept. 1690, and Daniel and Joanna, the eldest two ch. a few days bef. DAVID, Dorchester, freem. 7 Dec. 1636; but Mr. Paige, in his very careful list, Geneal, Reg. III. 94, read it Price. 

EDWARD, Watertown 1639, says Bond, wh. thinks he went to Wetherfield, but nothing certain is kn. of the man. EPHRAIM, Weymouth, perhaps s. of Michael, by w. Hannah, d. of John Halbrook of the sam, had Azikam, b. 4 Jan. 1672; prob. Ephraim; and perhaps others. GEORGE, Boston, a smith, m. Mary, d. of Richard Woodhouse, had Mary, b. 20 June 1660, and he d. 7 Dec. 1661. GEORGE, Portsmouth, R. I. m. 7 Apr. 1687, Alice, d. of Richard Hart, had Susanna, b. 21 Aug. 1688; and perhaps more. GILES, Greenwich, R. I. 1687, ISAAC, Boston, tailor, m. Grace, d. of Lewis Tucker of Casco. JAMES, Boston, k. in youth, by lightning, at Plymouth 1660. JAMES, Woburn, s. of Thomas, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 11 Oct. 1688; James, 28 Feb. 1690; and perhaps rem. JOHN, the patentee under the Pres. and Counc. of N. E. 1620 and 1, tho. connect. with the pilgr. of Plymouth, never came, in my opin. to this shore, yet Willis seems contra. I. 13. After most respectful consider. of the docum. refer. to in his note, I am constrain. to express a confidence, that the London clothworker never succeed. in accomplish, tho. he did undertake, a voyage to Plymouth, the ship being put back in distress. My judgment seems to have confirmat. by what is read in Bradford, 140. 

*JOHN, Dorchester, came perhaps in the Mary and John, 1630, or in the Lion, [[vol. 3, p. 428]] Feb. 1631, is call, mariner from Stepney, one of the modern London parishes, freem. 18 May 1631, by w. Parnell had Joseph, b. 30 Oct. 1631; Abia, or Abigail, 17 July 1633; John, 3 Mar. 1635, d. the same mo.; Nehemiah, 12 July 1637, d. Oct. 1639; and his w. d. the same mo. He was selectman 1636 and 41; rep. Mar. 1639; rem. 1642 to Boston, m. sec. w. 10 Aug. 1654, Rebecca, wid. of Thomas Wheeler, and d. 17 Sept. 1661. His will made the day bef. ment. w. Rebecca, s. Samuel, and Nehemiah, ds. Mehitable, the w. of Jermiah Rogers, prob. eldest, and her three ch. beside Mary, Mercy, and Exercise, as may be read in Geneal, Reg. X 359, 60. In the Hist. of Dorchester, 71, Samuel is supposed to be elder than Nehemiah, "as he is ment. first;" but it seems clear, that he was younger, no doubt, by the sec. w. Ano. JOHN of Dorchester, wh. by w. Mary had sev. ch. is so indistinguisha. as to w. or ch. by the respective names, that we must be content to call one a cooper, and one a selectman, without confidence a. either as more respect. than the other. 

JOHN, Watertown, freem. Mar. 1638. a man of very good est. project. settlem. at Sudbury and Lancaster, d. 19 Aug. 1661; and his will of 4 Mar. 1658 was pro. 1 Oct. foll. In it he provides for 2. Elizabeth eldest s. Anthony, and other childr. without naming; but his wid. in her will of 15 Mar. 1667, in wh. mo. she d. aged 79, supplies the defic. naming ch. Anthony, John, Robert, Esther Morse, w. of Joseph, Mary Coldam, whose h. is not of my acquaint. beside gr.childr. Mary Ball, and ano. Ball, Esther Morse, and the childr. of Anthony and Robert. He had also d. Judith wh. m. 30 Jan 1645, Francis Wyman, but she d. bef. her f. By Bond he is correct. judged to be the man emb. 1637 at Yarmouth, with w. and ch. he aged 49 yrs. w. Elizabeth 36, ch. John, Barbara, Elizabeth and Judith, with a serv. John Gedney, 19, as had been print. in 4 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 95, and again is giv. in Geneal. Reg. XIV. 325. He was from Norwich, a weaver. JOHN, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had John and Elizabeth tw. b. 16 June 1643; and of him nothing more is kn. unless he may be that man call. John Peirse, to whose four ch. John Mills of Boston, in his will, Oct. 1651, made gift. 

*JOHN, Woburn,prob. s. of John of Watertown, and b. in Eng. had John, b. 23 Nov. 1644; Joseph, 12 Sept. 1646; and Thomas, 3 May 1649; perhaps others bef. or aft. was freem. in Apr. and rep. May 1690. JOHN, Gloucester, Husbandman, freem. 1651, m. 4 Nov. 1643 w. Elizabeth had Mary, b. Sept. 1650; and John, 40 July 1653. His w. d. 3 July 1673, and he m. 12 Sept. foll. Jane Stanwood, and d. 15 Dec. 1695. His wid. d. 18 Aug. 1706. JOHN, Boston, s. of Anthony of Watertown, adm. as inhab. 28 Feb. 1643, freem. 1648, m. 15 Apr. 1656, Ruth, d. of Nathaniel Bishop; had Hannah, b. 30 June 1660; Ruth, 22 Nov. 1662; Hannah, again, 2 Mar. 1665 (as to me seems, tho. in the inform town rec. she is call. d. of John Pease, and w. Ruth, neither of wh. is seem elsewhere); beside Nathaniel, 10 Apr. 1678; and Rebecca, 15 Feb. 1680. Perhaps betw. the earliest and lastest pair he was resid. in some other town. His will of 21 Oct. 1682, pro. 7 Nov. foll. gives to his w. Ruth all his est. to bring up the childr. withal, as it lay in Boston or was giv. by his f. at W. or as may be inher. from gr.f. as this testat. was eldest s. of his f. JOHN, Hartford 1640, a youth who prob. rem. soon.
