Deane, 122, 325. 

NATHANIEL, Woburn, s. of Robert of the same, was a soldier in Philip's war, and engag. in the memo. Falls fight, 19 May 1676, wh. he long surv. m. 27 Dec. 1677, Hannah Convers, had Nathaniel, b. 2 Feb. 1679; and his w. d. 23 Mar. foll.

ROBERT, Dorchester, perhaps 1630, but not very likely, may have been br. of John, the mariner, by w. Ann, d. of John Greenway, had Deborah, b. Feb. 1640, d. in few wks was freem. 18 May 1642, and d. 6 Jan. 1665, leav. only s. Thomas, and Mary, wh. m. Thomas Herring, not (as oft. said) Haven, of Dedham; and his wid. d. 31 Dec. 1695, "the oldest person, prob. that ever liv. in D." says the Hist. 261, aged "about 104 yrs." unless we suppose some exagger. in Blake's Ann, as may be reasona. if not unavoida. Of his will, good abstr. is in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 154. Some of the bread brot, over the ocean by him, tradit. fondly reports to be still in posess. of descend. and so, by more than 165 yrs. older even than her. It may as well keep many centuries more. ROBERT, Ipswich, m. Abigail, d. of Mark Symonds of the same. 

ROBERT, Watertown 1646, s. of John of the same, rem. prob. to [[vol. 3, p. 431]] Worburn, was freem. 1650, by w. Mary, had Judith, b. 30 Sept. 1651; Mary, 21 Jan. 1653; Nathaniel, 4 Dec. 1655; Elizabeth 6 Mar. 1658; Jonathan, 2 Feb. 1663; and Joseph, 1 May 1672. His w. d. 18 Mar. 1701, and ╥old Robert╙ d. 10 Sept. 1706. Farmer assum. that he might be the ancest. of Gov. Benjamin, a native of Chelmsford, assigning, in a way not common with that scrupul. antiquary, as a reason, that the Chelmsford Pierces were from Woburn. ROBERT, Charlestown, m. 18 Feb. 1657, Sarah Eyre. SAMUEL, Malden, whose w.'s name I find not, had Mary, b. 20 Aug. 1656; Thomas, 7 Jan. 1658;' John, and perhaps Joseph, Aug. 1659; of wh. John d. very soon; and Elizabeth oct. 1666; prob. more, for I suppose he rem. to Charlestown, and may be the person whose w. Mary join. the Charlestown ch. 27 Mar. 1670, he hav. done so 5 Dec. preced. and brot. to bapt. Samuel, Thomas, Joseph, Jonathan, John, Mary, Elizabeth and Persis, all 16 Jan. 1670; Abigail, 29 May 1670; Hannah, 31 Dec. 1671; and Benjamin, 15 Aug. 1675. 

SAMUEL, Boston 1672, cooper, prob. s. of John of the same, may have rem. 1677, to Charlestown. SAMUEL, Woburn, s. of Thomas of the same, freem. 1684, m. 9 Dec. 1680. Lydia Bacon, had Samuel, b. 25 Nov. 1681; Lydia, 25 May 1683; Joseph, 28 Mar. 1685; Isaac, 22 Mar. 1687; Abigail, 27 Feb. 1689; Sarah, 22 Jan. 1691; Tabitha, 28 Aug. 1697, d. next mo.; and Tabitha, again, 19 Mar. 1700. STEP[HEN, fifth s. of Thomas the sec. set at Chelmsford, by w. Tabitha had Stephen, whose s. Benjamin was gr.f. of the late Presid. of the U. S. says the memoir of Gov. Benjamin in Geneal. Reg. VII. 10; but the writer has perhaps sunk one generat. by confu. of one Thomas with ano. of the same name, prob. the emigr. ancest. THOMAS, Charlestown 1634, freem. 6 May 1635, brot. from Eng. d. Persis, wh. m. William Bridge, and next, John Harrison, by w. Elizabeth had Abigail, bapt. 17 June 1639, unless she were ch. of ano. Thomas, as seems not unlikely; for no other is ascrib. to this one, wh. d. 7 Oct. 1666, and in his will of 7 Nov. preced. ment. his age of 82 yrs. his w. Elizabeth aged a. 71, s. John, Randall Nichols, beside gr.ch. Mary Bridge and Elizabeth Jeffts; and gave legacy to the coll. His wid. Elizabeth mo. of Mary, w. of Peter Tufts, was perhaps his sec. w. THOMAS, Woburn 1643, may not improb. seem to be s. of the preced. b. in Eng. liv. first at Charlestown, and may have been f. of that Abigail; but at W. had John, b. 7 Mar. 1644, d. prob. soon; Thomas, 21 Jan. 1645; Elizabeth 25 Dec. 1646; Joseph, 22 Sept. 1648, d. soon; Joseph, again, 13 Aug. 1649; Stephen, 16 July 1651; Samuel, 20 Feb. 1654, d. at 2 yrs.; Samuel, again, 7 Apr. 1656; William, 7 Mar. 1658; James, 7 May 1659; and Abigail, 20 Nov. 1660. He was freem. 1677 and 13 Nov. of that yr. sold ld. in Charlestown. Thomas, f. of Stephen, could not be, as the biog. suppos. the same Thomas that d. 7 Oct. 1666, aged 83 yrs. 

THOMAS, Setauket, L. I. 1661, had that yr. a commiss. as a Magistr. of Conn. THOMAS, Dorchester, only s. of Robert, m. Mary, d. [[vol. 3, p. 432]] of George Proctor, had nine ch. of wh. were Thomas, bapt. 26 Oct. 1662; Mary, b. Apr. 1665; John, 26 Oct. 1668; beside Samuel, k. 16 Dec. 1698, by fall of a tree. His w. d. 22 Mar. 1704, aged 62, and he d. 26 Oct. 1706, aged 71. He was ancest. of the late well beloved Rev. Dr, John of Brookline, H. C. 1793. THOMAS, Gloucester, had w. Ann, wh. d. 16 Jan. 1668, perhaps d. Elizabeth d. 3 July 1673. WILLIAM, Boston, a disting. shipmaster, made more voyages than any other person in the same yrs. to and from Boston, was k. by the Spaniards at Providence in the Bahamas, 13 July 1641. Winthrop II. 33. Prince says in Ann. II, 69, he was ancest. of Rev. James, a disting. theolog. of Exeter, Eng. wh. d. 1730. WILLIAM, Boston, came in the Griffin, arr. 4 Sept. 1633, with Cotton, Hooker, Gov. Haynes, and other ch. men, was made freem. 14 May foll. oft. a selectman, d. 1661. He had early m. Sarah, d. of William Colbron, had d. Sarah nam. Sarah Colpit in the will of her gr.f. But I fear that name is wrong, at least, such name is not kn. in Boston. See the note in Winthrop I. 109. 

WILLIAM, Barnstable 1643. WILLIAM, Boston 1653, a mariner, d. 1669. leav. small prop. to his wid. By w. Esther, I suppose, he had Mary, b. 10 Dec. 1656; Martha and Mary, tw. b. 26 May 1659. WILLIAM, Falmouth 1680, on the sec. destruct. of the town, 1690, rem. to Milton. Willis I. 163. WILLIAM, Suffield, m. 1688, Esther Spencer, had Thomas, b. 1688. WILLIAM, Woburn, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, m. 8 Apr. 1690, Abigail Somers, alias Warren. Fifteen of this name in its various forms, had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. five at Yale, and ten at other N. E. coll.

PIERPONT, EBENEZER, Roxbury, s. of John of the same, m. 20 Oct. 1692, Mary, d. of Samuel Ruggles, had John, b. 20 Sept. 1693; Ebenezer, 14 Sept. 1694; and Mary, 21 Sept. 1696, d. Feb. foll.; and he d. 11 Dec. foll. His wid. m. 3 Nov. 1702, Isaac Morris. JAMES, Ipswich, had w. Margaret, left s. John and Robert, wh. he brot. from Eng. JAMES, New Haven, s. of John of Roxbury, ord. 2 July 1685, m. 27 Oct. 1691, Abigail, d. of John Davenport sec. wh. d. within four mos, and his sec. w. 1694, was Sarah, d. of Rev. Joseph Haynes, and by her he had only Abigail, b. 19 Sept. 1696; his third w. m. 26 July 1698 was Mary, d. of Rev. Samuel Hooker, had James, 21 May 1699, Y. C. 1718; Samuel, 30 Dec. 1700, Y. C. 1718; Mary, 23 Nov. 1702; Joseph, 21 Oct. 1704; Benjamin, 18 July 1706, d. in few mos.; Benjamin, again, 17 Oct. 1707, Y. C. 1726; Sarah, 9 June 1709; and Hezekiah, 1712. Whether he was promin. as divine, or what issue he had by this last, I am not able to discover (yet Edward C. herick, Esq. Libr. can tell), but his wonderful story of the apparition of the ship in the sky, at New Haven, many yrs. bef. he was b. that worthi. adorns, the Magnalia, Book I. ch. 6, 6, is evidence of his felicity of fancy. It may be compar. with the contempo. acco. of the prodigy in Winthrop II.; 328. He d. 22 Nov. 1714. Against a foolish invent. of recent date, mak. this humble clerg. descend of the Duke of Kingston, the differ. of spell. in the surname, as the sound of both is the same, would be slight obstacle; but we may be sure it is incredib. for our James's f. was b. many a long yr. bef. the first Duke of K. 

JOHN, Roxbury, s. of James of Ipswich, b. in Eng. m. Thankful, d. of John Stow, had Thankful b. 26 Nov. bapt. 2 Dec. 1649, d. in few days; John, 22 July [[vol. 3, p. 433]] 1651, d. in few days unbapt.; John, again, 28, bapt. 31 Oct. 1652; Experience, 4 Jan. bapt. 18 Feb. 1655; one, 4 Aug. 1657, d. in very few days unbapt.; James, 4, bapt. 8 Jan. 1660, H. C. 1681; Ebenezer, 21, bapt. 22 Dec. 1661; Thankful, again, 18 Nov. 1663; Joseph, 8 Apr. 1666; and Benjamin, 26 July 1668, H. C. 1689, wh. was a min. that d. 1698 at Charleston, S. C. He was freem. 1652, and d. 7 Dec. 1682, aged 64. His s. John d. 30 Dec. 1690 unm. I think; and Joseph, prob. a stud. at coll. at least bur. at Cambridge, d. 25 Feb. 1687. 

JONATHAN, s. of Robert of Roxbury, was fourth min. of Reading, ord. 26 June 1689, m. 29 Oct. 1691, Elizabeth d. of Edmund Angier of Cambridge, had Elizabeth b. 25 Feb. 1693; Jonathan, 14 Sept. 1695, H. C. 1714; Joseph, 13 Oct. 1706; Mary, 11 Feb. 1708; and he d. 2 June 1709. ROBERT, Ipswich 1648, br. prob. of James the first, may, I suppose, he regard. as f. of that ROBERT of I. who was adm. freem. 1676; but no good report of either has reached me. ROBERT, Roxbury, s. of the first James, b. in Eng. m. at Charlestown 18 Feb. 1657, tho. Frothingham says 1666, Sarah, d. of Thomas Lynde, had James, b. 30 Nov. 1657, d. very soon; Margaret, 13 Mar. 1659, d. in few days; Margaret, again, 14 Mar. 1661, d. in few days; Jonathan, 8 Oct. 1663, d. in few days; Jonathan, again, 11 June 1665, H. C. 1685; Thomas, 7 July 1667; Ezra, 30 July 1669, d. soon; Sarah, 29 Nov. 1671, d. very soon; Margaret, again, 30 Apr. 1672; James, again, 28 Oct. 1675, d. next yr.; James, again, 27 Aug. 1677; Robert, 31 Dec. 1678, d. in few wks.; and Sarah, again, 24 May 1680; and he d. 16 May 1694. His wid. gave a depon, it is said, at the age of 85 yrs. wh. illustrates much the genalog, tho. her mem. was infirm eno. to magnify the number of her days, by reckon, six or seven yrs. too many, or in the shorter term of Farmer, four or five. So dangerous is an oath taken under the burden of age. Eight of this name includ. the spelling of Pierrepont, the noble fam. in Eng. had in 1834 been gr. at Harv. and six at Yale.

PIERSON, PEARSON, PORSUNE, or PERSON, ABRAHAM, Branford, was of Yorksh. came to Boston 1640, join. the ch. 5 Sept. of that yr. when he is call. "a student," of wh. we may doubt the meaning, as we kn. he was bred at Trinity Coll. Cambridge, where he took his A. B. 1632, and he is in Mather's first Classis as a min. bef. coming over, tho. this may well seem incorrect; bec. min. of the ch. gather. in Lynn Nov. 1640 to go to sett. at Southampton, L. I. thence a. 1647 went to Branford, and thence in the autumn of 1667, with a part to his congreg. to Newark, N. J. 

See his letter to John Winthrop, 3 Mass. Hist. Col. X. 69 and 84. He had Abraham, b. at Lynn 1641, H. C. 1668; Thomas, John, and Abigail, bef. his rem. from S. and at B. were b. Grace, 13 June 1650; Susanna, 10 Dec. 1652; Rebecca, 10 Dec. 1654; and Theophilus, [[vol. 3, p. 434]] 15 Mar. or May 1659; beside Isaac; and Mary. Abigail m. 27 Nov. 1663, John Davenport the younger; Susanna m. 1672, Jonathan Bell of Stamford, as his sec. w.; Grace was sec. w. of Samuel Kitchell; and Rebecca m. Joseph Johnson, and d. 8 Nov. 1732. But much of the details belong to Newark. He d. 9 Aug. 1678. Descend. are in Conn. N. Y. and N. J. of wh. Farmer says twelve had in 1829, been gr. at the coll. of those three States. Lechford, in Plain Dealing, 43, calls him Pridgeon. Of his will, I have large abstr. furnish. by Samuel H. Congar, Esq. It bears date 10 Aug. 1671, provides out of good est. for four s. Abraham, Thomas, Theophilus, and Isaac; four ds. beside his "choice and precious d. Davenport," so that we may be sure John was d. bef. that date. 

ABRAHAM, Killingworth, s. of the preced. had been ord. as collea, with his f. at Newark, 4 Mar. 1672, in 1692 came to Conn. and in 1694 was sett. at K. m. Abigail, d. of George Clark of Milford; in 1701, was made the first head of Yale coll. and serv. until he d. 5 May 1707. He had ch. Abraham, Sarah, Susannah, Mary, Hannah, Ruth, James, and Abigail, beside John, Y. C. 1711, min of Woodbridge, N. J. BARTHOLOMEW, Watertown 1639, by w. Ursula, writ. Azlee, Uzlah, Uzlee in the rec. had Bartholomew, b. Sept. 1640, d. next mo.; Bartholomew, again, 26 Feb. 1642, d. in few mos.; Martha, 17 Sept. 1643; perhaps Mary; Jonathan, 12 Aug. 1648; Joseph, 8 Nov. 1650; Sarah, 7 May 1653; and Bartholomew, again, wh. d. in few yrs. In 1648 he was made freem. spell. Porsune in the rec. and in 1653 he rem. to Woburn, was selectman 1665 and 6, and d. 12 Mar. 1687. His wid. d. 28 May 1694. HENRY, Hempstead. L. I. 1686. HUGH, Watertown 1649, had, in 1654, w. Alice and d. Ruth, then 9 yrs. old, and he d. 13 June 1675, very poor, as he had liv. JOHN, Middletown, d. July 1677, leav. w. and s. three yrs. old. 

PETER, Boston, a quaker, to be whipp. at the cart's tail 1660, thro. Boston, Roxbury, and Dedham. Hutch. I. 203. It is not relat. in any book how this tended to his conversion. STEPHEN, Derby 1679, had prob. other ch. beside Stephen and Sarah; for the name of Abraham is found in the list of est. 1717, and this may lead to the presumption that Stephen was s. of the first Abraham. THOMAS, Branford 1668, not (as oft. he is call.) s. of Rev. Abraham the first, m. 27 Nov. 1662, Mary, d. of Richard Harrison, had Samuel, b. a. 1663, rem. to Newark, and d. there. He sw. alleg. to the Dutch in 1673. He was prob. br. possib. neph. of the fist Rev. Abraham, and his will of 12 Jan. 1698, with codic. of 3 Mar. 1701, was pro. in May foll. It names s. Samuel and Thomas, ds. Hannah and Elizabeth 

THOMAS, Brandford, s. of the first Abraham, m. Mary Harrison, went to Newark from Branford with his f. was call, jun. was in good esteem, but was d. bef. 1684. [[vol. 3, p. 435]]

PIGG, PIDGE, or PIGGE, JOHN, Dedham, prob. s. of Thomas, freem. 1690, print, in the list Pidg. as the name of this mo. in the Metcalf genealog. is spelt Pidge, wh. may show the sound. ROBERT, New Haven 1644, d. 1660, or very early next yr. his inv. being of 23 Jan. foll. and his will of .28 Mar. preced. In it he names w. Margaret, wh. m. 1662, William Tharpe or Thorpe, d. Alice mean, w. of John Jenner, perhaps, her s. Thomas "and her other childr." Possib. he was br. of THOMAS of Roxbury, freem. 14 May 1634, wh. brot from Eng. w. Mary, and sev. ch. had here Martha, bapt. 12 Mar. 1643, and he d. 30 Dec. foll. His will, pro. 12 Sept. 1644, gives Thomas, John, Hannah, Sarah, and Martha, propty. in R. and to d. Mary, w. I think of Nicholas Wood, his allotm. in Dedham. His wid. m. 13 Aug. 1645, Michael Metcalf. THOMAS, Dedham, s. of the preced. d. early in Sept. 1660, prob. never m. at least his br. John and sis. had his prop. Geneal. Reg. X. 180.

PIGDEN, THOMAS, Lynn 1647. Lewis.

PIGGOT, CHRISTOPHER, Boston 1655, on 27 Apr. of wh. yr. an order was passed, that his w. shall be forthwith sent to him at Muddy riv. by the constable.

PIGHOGG, Mr. Boston, adm. a townsman 28 Feb. 1652, with prefix of respect, and entitled a "churrergeon." See Rec. I. 103, wh. gives no name of bapt.

PIGROM, WILLIAM, Dorchester 1653, perhaps only transient.

PIKE, GEORGE, Marblehead 1668. HUGH, Newbury, a soldier under Turner, at Hatfield, in Apr. 1676, m. 17 June 1685, Sarah, d. of Francis Brown, had Hugh, b. 28 May 1686, and Joseph. JAMES, Charlestown 1647, then adm. of the ch. and made freem. rem. to Reading, had two ws. Naomi, and Sarah, two s. John, b. 1 Jan. 1654; and Zechariah, 8 Oct. 1658; but of wh. w. either was s. or whether there were more ch. or their names if there were more, as is prob. exc. Jermiah, or when either of the ws. or the ch. d. I have not heard. He d. 1699. JEREMIAH, Reading, prob. s. of the preced. had Jermiah, b. 15 Jan. 1674; James, 2 May 1676, d. soon; as did Eliezer or Ebenezer, b. next yr.; Michael, 7 Apr. 1678; James, again. 7 Nov. 1679, d. young; Rachel, 14 Dec. 1681; James, again, 15 Sept. 1682; Nathaniel, 4 May 1685; William, 14 Mar. 1687; Naomi, 14 Feb. 1689; was of Framingham, a selectman 1700, and d. 9 Jan. 1711. 

JOHN, Newbury, came in the James. 1635, from Southampton, call. in the clearance from the custom-ho. laborer of Langford, with ch. was at Ipswich first, in 1640 of Piscataqua. and rem. perhaps early to Salisbury, but more prob. only estab. there on his est. sec. s. d. 26 May 1654, leav. will, made two days bef. in wh. he provides for gr.s. John, and gr.s. John, s. of Robert, three ds. Dorothy, w. of Daniel Hendrick, by wh. we discov. the [[vol. 3, p. 436]] error of Geneal. Reg. VI. 342, where she is call. d. instead of sis. of Robert; Israel, w. of Henry True; and Ann. I presume all these ch. and Sarah, not found in the will, were brot. from Eng. or Coffin would have giv. us the date. of b. here, as well as the name of the w. as yet unkn. 

*JOHN, Newbury, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 26 Dec. 1638; John, 12 Jan. 1641, d. at 8 yrs.; Hannah, 26 Apr. 1643; Mary, 11 Nov. 1647; John, again 20 Mar. 1650; Ruth, 17 July 1652; Sarah, 13 Sept. 1655; Thomas, 7 Dec. 1657; and Samuel; was rep. 1657 and 8, tho. as freem. his name is not found; rem. to Woodbridge, N.

He rem. 1689 to Portsmouth when D, was destr. by the Ind. next yr. to Hampton, next yr. to Newbury, next yr. to Portsmouth to emb. for Pemaquid as chapl. to the garris. back to Portsmouth in July 1695, and to Dover 1698, and in less than four yrs. to Salisbury, where he was b. but in a yr. or two went last to Dover again, there d. 10 Mar. 1710. All inquirers for minute statements about his neighb. are much indebted to his Journal in Vol. III. of N. H. Hist. Coll. His will of 6 Mar. bef. names ch. Nathaniel, Robert, Joshua, Solomon, Hannah, and Mary. 

*JOSEPH, Newbury, s. of John of the same, rep. 1690-2, by w.

Aug. 1672, William Carr. 

ROBERT, Providence 1645, may have been only trans. inhab. ROBERT, Salisbury, s. of Robert of the same, m. 30 Oct. 1684, Martha Goldwyer, perhaps d. of George, had Robert, b. 3 Sept. 1687; and Sarah, 3 Feb. 1690; was freem. that yr. and d. 22 Aug. of the same. SAMUEL, Falmouth, 1688, s. of Richard. Willis I. 143, 190. Four of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at Harv. and two at Dartm. coll.

CALEB and INCREASE, brs. of the preced. were of Newbury 1678, but we kn. no more of either exc. that the former d. 4 July 1680, acc. Coffin, wh. says nothing of the latter aft. his b.

Coffin's page does not allude to d. of the first. Yet as w. of Worth she had brot. a number. 

WILLIAM, Dorchester 1641, m. that yr. prob. Dorothy Crosby, had Deborah, b. 16 Apr. 1642; Job. 26 Oct. 1643, Moses; Abel; rem. to Newbury, there had Caleb, 28 Jan. 1654; William, 27 July 1656; Experience, 10 Apr. 1658; Increase, 10 Oct. 1660; Thankful, 22 Apr. 1662; and Joshua, 30 June 1671; freem. 1668, d. 19 June 1686, aged 71.

PIMORE, THOMAS, New Haven, a propr. 1685.

PINCKNEY, PHILIP, Fairfield 1650, perhaps he was not there much [[vol. 3, p. 438]] aft. 1653, certain, was at East Chester, 1665. His s. John liv. there 1690, and perhaps he had other ch. beside Abigail, wh. m. David Osborn.

PINDAR, PINDER, PYNDER, or PINTER, HENRY, Ipswich 1642, perhaps was f. of Mary, who. m. 21 Mar. 1643, Solomon Martin, and of Joanna, wh. m. 14 Nov. 1643, Valentine Rowell. He had come prob. as early as 1635 at least, for in that yr. emb. at London, in the Susan and Ellen, to come hither, were Mary, aged 53, with six ch.; Francis, 20; Mary, 17, Joanna, 14; Ann, 12; Catharine, 10; and John, 8. JOHN, Ipswich 1648, may have been s. of the preced. m. a. d. of Theophilus Wilson, and had s. Thomas; and perhaps rem. to Watertown, there d. 14 Apr. 1662. SAMUEL, Ipswich 1683.

PINGRY, PINGREW, PINGREE, or PENGRY, AARON, Ipswich 1648 *MOSES, Ipswich 1642, perhaps br. of the preced. a saltmaker, m.

Faith, perhaps d. of the first Joseph Jewett.

PINTON, NICHOLAS, Lynn 1647, perhaps worked at the iron mine, rem. to New Haven, there wrought at the iron works, by w. Elizabeth wh. d. 1667, had Ruth, Hannah, Mary, Thomas, and Robert; and d. Apr. 1676. His inv. amount, only to L43; but that was a season of extreme depresssion. The spelling is Dodd's, but Sylvester Judd read the rec. Pineon. Ruth m. at Lynn, 28 Dec. 1657, James Moore. ROBERT, Lynn 1647, may have been s. of the preced. THOMAS, Sudbury 1661, may have been s. of Nicholas, sett. at New Haven, by w. Mercy had Christiana, Mercy, and Abigail, and Experience; and d. 10 Oct. 1710. Doubts as to this name have been express. in Conn. for it might easily be read Pineon, or Pineo, and the sound of either is not much unlike the others, it is said, and was seldom uttered in public.

PINKHAM JOHN, Dover 1665, s. of Richard, in 1671 had gr. from his f. of most of his prop. on condit. of support. him for life, and m.
