REVELL, JOHN, Salem, a merch. of London, greatly engag. in the promot. of settlem. of Mass. Bay, by the Gov. and Comp. chos. an Assist. 20 Oct. 1629, came in the Jewell, one of Winthrop's fleet, June 1630, but went home next mo. in the Lion. THOMAS, New London 1658, a merch. from London at Barbadoes 1660, but liv. there 1662-66. Miss Caulkins thinks he was proscribed at the restorat. having stood for the Commonwealth, that he is the hermit of Braintree at a later date, called "Tom Revel," a regicide, or holy hermit gone crazy, he and his hog enjoying their common stye, of wh. absurd tradit. in Whitney's Hist. of Quincy is given, that when he d. the Gov. of the Province and other disting. men came out from Boston, and were his pall-bearers." That the hog, being nearest relat. was chief mournere, is unaccountab. omit. Usual. there is some slight foundation of truth, to afford appear. of support to the wildest story; but here even that is wanting. We read the ridic. tale in a note on p. 36. Every one knows, that there was no regicide of this name; that no Gov. of the Prov. after 1691, could have been such a fool, nor would any Gov. of the Col. after 1660, have shown such public honor to a regicide; nor lastly is any such name, as Rev. W. P. Lunt, after scrutiny of Braintree rec. assures me, to be found among d. at B. [[vol. 3, p. 525]]

REW, EDWARD, Newport 1638, was of Taunton 1643, where he m. Sarah, d. of John Richmond; and Baylies says II. 282, he d. 16 July 1678, leav. no ch. and his wid. m. 4 Nov. foll. James Walker.

REX, WILLIAM, unless the name be mispell. was a propr. of Watertown 1642, liv. at Boson aft. there by w. Grace had Elisha, b. Aug. 1645; Mary, 4 Mar. 1647; and Ezekiel, 30 Nov. 1656.

REYNER. See Rayner.

REYNOLDS, RENOLD, or RENOLDS, FRANCIS, Kingstown, in the Narraganset country, 1686, was perhaps s. of James the first. HENRY, Salem, had gr. of ld. 1642, was of Lynn 1647, and perhaps again of S. HENRY, Kingstown, wh. m. Sarah, d. of James Greene, was br. of Francis. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. 183. JAMES, Plymouth, if we may suppose his name to be carelessly spell. Renell in 1643, perhaps rem. to R. I. jurisdict. and bef. 1674, was with fam. of sev. s. esta. at Wickford, in the Narraganset ld. and in the conflict betw. Conn. and R. I. for jurisdict. was imprison. by one party. See Trumbull, CoI. Rec. II. 540. JAMES, jr. and JOSEPH, inhab. there 1687, as well as bef. ment. Francis and Henry, may have all been his s. of wh. James m. 19 Feb. 1685, Mary d. of James Greene; Henry m. Sarah, ano. d. of the same; and Elizabeth ano. d. m. also a Reynolds. JOHN, Watertown 1634, freem. 6 May 1635; Sarah, perhaps his w. came with many people of W. in the Elizabeth from Ipswich, Co. Suff. 1634, aged 20, rem. in two yrs. to Wethersfield, rem. again bef. 1644, to Stamford, and may have been f. of Jonathan and John, freem. in 1669, of Greenwich, where the fam. long contin. 

JOHN, an early sett. at Isle of Shoals, complain. against in 1647 (when he was constable), for having a w. there, as he might have been on the mainland, for not hav. one. See 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. VlI. 250. JOHN, Saybrook, rem. to Norwich, with first sett. a. 1659, made freem. 1663, selectman 1669; had eleven c. of wh. Caulkins in her Hist. ment. John, b. at S. Aug. 1655; Sarah, Nov. 1656; Susanna, Oct. 1658; Joseph, Mar. 1660; Mary, 1664; Elizabeth 1666; Stephen, Jan. 1669; and Lydia, Feb. 1671. The s. John was k. by the Ind. 28 Jan. 1676. See Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. He perhaps was of Stonington 1670, but d. at N. 1702, leav. only s. Joseph, ds. Sarah, w. of the sec. John Post, Mary Lothrop; Elizabeth Lyman; and Lydia Miller. JOHN, Weymouth, carpenter, by w. Ann had Mary, b. 15 Mar. 1660, prob. rem. soon, for in 1664, he sold W. est. JOHN, Wethersfield, perhaps s. of John the first, had Kezia, b. 1667; Ann, 1669; Rebina, 1671; John, 1674; Jonathan, 1677; and d. 1682. 

JOHN, Providence 1676. JONATHAN, Stamford, rep. 1667, perhaps br. of first John, d. 1673, leav. ch. Rebecca, aged 17; Jonathan, 13; John, 11; Sarah, 8; Elizabeth 6; and Joseph, 4 1/4. NATHANIEL, Boston, s. of Robert the first, perhaps b. in Eng. [[vol. 3, p. 526]] shoemaker, m. 30 Dec. 1657, or as ano. rec. has it, 7 Jan. 1658, Sarah, d. of John Dwight of Dedham, had Sarah, b. 26 July 1659; Mary, 20 Nov. 1668; Nathaniel, 3 Mar. 1662; and by w. Priscilla, had John, 4 Aug 1668; Peter, 26 Jan. 1670; Philip, 15, bapt. 20 Sept. 1674, and Joseph, b. 29 Dec. 1676. He was of ar. co. 1658, freem. 1665, and I think that capt. in Philip's war on serv. at Chelmsford, 25 Feb. 1676. He is in Boston tax list of 1695; but perhaps had some yrs. liv. at Bristol. His s. John was, I presume, that mem. of the sec. ch. at Newport, that Presid. Stils, in MS. Itiner. notes the d. of Bristol, 30 Jan. 1757, in his 90th yr. 

RICHARD, a passeng. in the Mary and John 1634, of wh. I kn. no more. ROBERT, Watertown 1635, shoemaker, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, was dism. by the ch. 29 Mar. 1636, to form a ch. at Wethersfield, but prob. after few yrs. rem. to Boston, had w. Mary, but no ch. is found; in town or ch. rec. so that we infer that all the five ch. named in his will of 20 Apr. 1658, good abstr. of wh. is in Geneal. Reg. IX. 137, viz. Ruth Whitney, w. of John, Tabitha wid. of Matthew Abdy, Sarah Mason, and Mary Sanger, w. of Richard, beside Nathaniel, above, must have been brot. from Eng. He is ment. with remarka. kindness in the will of Capt. Robert Keayne, and d. 27 Apr. 1659. ROBERT, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. Jan. 1669; and Ann, 11 Aug. 1670. I think he was a fisherman, may have been s. of the preced. and liv. at Pulling Point. As New London, perhaps on the tax list of 1666, m. 1 Oct. 1683 Sarah, d. of Joseph Clark the first of Newport, and in 1680 had a lot at Westerly. 

WILLIAM, Duxbury 1636, m. 30 Aug. 1638, Alice Kitson, may be the same wh. was in 1634 one of Howland's men, when the dispute in Kennebeck riv. caus. d. of two men and of Cape Porpoise 1653, then adm. freem. of Mass. to wh. gr. of 200 acres at Kennebunk 4 or 5 yrs. bef. had been made. WILLIAM, Providence, as early as May 1637. WILLIAM, Salem, in Felt's list of ch. mem. it appears that she was adm. 1640. Ten of this name had been gr. at Yale 1852, and three at Harv.

JEREMIAH, Providence, sw. alleg. in May 1671. JOHN, and JOHN jr. were at Salem 1678. JOHN, Providence, s. of Zachary, d. 1712, his will of that date, nam. w. Waite, and ch. Zachariah, John, Joseph, William, Resolved, Phebe, and Waite, of wh. all the first were minors, but of them William and John were by former w. Mercy, youngest d. of Roger Williams, wh. had been w. of Samuel Winsor, and bef. that of Resolved Waterman. JOHN, Boston 1659, shoemaker, may not have been of Providence 1676. 

JOHN, Lynn, freem. [[vol. 3, p. 527]] 1684, perhaps was of Marblehead 1673. JOSEPH, Lynn, prob. s. of Henry, freem. 1677 or 1684, and again took the o. 1690, as perhaps did others a sec. time, after the overthrow of Andros, m. 25 May 1674, Jane Coates, had Samuel, b. 6 Mar. 1675, d. at 4 mos..; Elizabeth 22 Aug. 1676; Joseph, 1 Apr. 1678, d. at 3 mos.; Jane, 14 July 1679; John, 20 Jan. 1682; and Susanna, 18 Nov. 1684.

John, and brs.-in-law, John Low and Daniel Williams. RICHARD, Salem 1669. SAMUEL, Lynn. br. of Joshua. m. 16 Jan. 1684, Abigail Coates, had Jonathan, b. 28 Nov. 1685; and Samuel, 2 Aug. with a wrong yr. in the rec. that may have been inten. for 1687; was freem. 1691. THEOPHILUS, Boston, freem. 1683. WALTER, Providence, "gave engagem. of alleg. to his Maj. Charles II. bef. William Carpenter, Assist. in the face of the town," 1 June 1668. 

WILLIAM, Block Isl. 1678. ZACHARY, Providence, m. Joanna, d. of William Arnold, had John, b. a. 1658; Zechariah; and Malachi; beside a d. Rebecca, wh. m. Nicholas Power the sec. and he d. 1668. His wid. m. Samuel Reape, of Newport, bef. the end of Jan. 1669; and the s. Zechariah, d. without issue. He had also some others. This name is oft. found without an h, but rarely in mod. days.

RICE, BENJAMIN, Marlborough, youngest of eight s. of the first Edmud of the same, m. a. 1662 Mary, eldest ch. of deac. William Brown of Sudbury, had only Ebenezer, b. 1 May 1671; and his w. d. 3 Jan. 1691.

REDMUND, Sudbury, was from Barkhamstead in Co. Herts, and of the first sett. 1639, appoint. to lay out the planta. freem. 13 May 1640, and among proprs. that yr. is a wid. Rice, perhaps his mo. was rep. in Oct. foll. and 1643, deac. and selectman, b. a. 1594, brot. from Eng. w. Thomasine, and ch. by her, Edward, b. 1618; Henry; Edmund; Thomas; Matthew; Samuel; and Joseph, had here Benjamin, b. 31 May 1640.

EDMUND, Sudbury, sec. s. of Edward the first, was a deac. and d. 25 Sept. 1719, but of m .or issue I hear not. EDWARD, Westborough, s. of Samuel, m. 15 Nov. 1692, Ruth Parker of Roxbury, says Barry, and had at Marlborough, Dinah, b. 1693; Silas 1695; Timothy 1697; Nahor 1699, k. by the Ind. at 5 yrs.; Huldah 1701; Moses 1704, d. soon; Seth 1705; Thankful 1707; Eleazer 1709; Ruth 1712; Ebenezer 1714; and Ann 1716; d. 1726, leav. wid. Hannah. EDWARD, Sudbury, s. of the first Edmund, prob. eldest, b. at Barkhamstead, Eng. by first w. Agnes Bent, says Barry, he had no ch. but John Bent, in his will of 14 Sept 1672, speaks of his d. Agnes Rice, so that I doubt she was not first, but sec. w. unless Agnes and Ann mean one woman. Childr. by w. Ann, acc. Barry, were John; Lydia, b. 30 July 1648, d. soon; Lydia, again, 10 Dec. 1649; Edmund, 9 Dec. 1653; Daniel, 8 Nov. 1655; Caleb, 8 Feb. 1658, d. soon; Ann, 9 Nov. 1661; Dorcas, 29 Jan. 1664; Benjamin, 22 Dec. 1666; and Abigail, 9 May 1671; rem. to Marlborough, was a deac. and d. 15 Aug. 1712 at gr. age, and his wid.

Of course he was 65, or at most, 69 yrs. old, but then age is kind. stretched to 71, in Geneal. Reg. XIlI. 140. 

GERSHOM, Worcester, br. of the preced. d. 29 Dec. 1768, at the gr. age of 101, as may be read in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 140. He had seven ch. [[vol. 3, p. 529]] all then liv.

JAMES, Marlborough, s. of the first Thomas, had Jotham; Zebedia; Cyrus; Frances; James; Jaazaniah; Grace, and Berzela, if Barry is correct, who adds that he d. at Worcester 1730. His age was 61 yrs. but in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 140, made to run up to 72. Perhaps his w. was Sarah, and he had at Framingham Daniel, b. 13 Mar. 1705. JOHN, Boston, by w. Mary, had John, b. 9 May 1669. JOHN, Warwick, m. 16 July 1674, Elizabeth sec. d. of the first Randall Houlden, d. 6 Jan. 1731, aged 85, had John, and Randal, perhaps others.

JONAS, Sudbury, s. of the first Thomas, said in the doubtful rep. to have liv. 84 yrs. 

JONATHAN, Norwich, m. Mar. 1661, Deborah, d. of Hugh Caulkins, had Elizabeth b. Jan. 1662; and John, 1663; made freem. 1663, constable 1669. JONATHAN, Sudbury, s. of Henry, by w.

JONATHAN, Sudbury, s. of Joseph the first, m. 25 Mar. 1702, Ann Derby of Stow, as by the highest authority is told, was deac. and d. 7 June 1772, and his wid. d. 2 Dec. 1773. So they had liv. as h. and w. over 70 yrs. but whether any ch. came of the union is not told yet, but may be when the fam. geneal. is publish. JOSEPH, Sudbury, prob. youngest s. of Edmund the first, b. in Eng. m. 1658, Mercy King, perhaps d. of Thomas of Watertown, but no issue is found in Barry, wh. says, by w. Martha he had Martha, b. 14 Jan. 1662; Josiah, 3 May 1663; Caleb, 1666; and this w. Martha; 4 Jan. 1669; by third w. Mary, by Bond thot. d. of Capt. Richard Beers, he had Joseph, 5 June 1671; Eleazer, 26 Oct. 1672; rem. to Marlborough, was freem. 1672; had there Mary, 13 Aug. 1674; perhaps driv. by the Ind. war to Watertown, his w. d. there 13 May 1677; and there by 4th w. Sarah had Jonathan, 26 Mar. 1679; and Sarah, 14 Feb. 1681, wh. d. soon, and again might have, at Marlborough, Phineas, 24 Aug. 1684. JOSEPH, Marlborough, s. of the preced. had w.

MATTHEW, Sudbury, s. prob. fifth of Edmund the first, b. in Eng. freem. 1660, m. 2 Nov. 1654, Martha Lamson, perhaps d. of Barnaby of Cambridge, had Sarah b. 9 Sept. 1655, wh. m. a Loker; Martha, 17 Aug. 1656, m.

NATHANIEL, Sudbury, s. of Thomas the first, had Nathaniel, Mary, and Patience, but he had two ws. Sarah, and next m. 1704, wid. Patience Stone, and he d. 13 Nov. 1726. His age of 66 yrs. is swell. to 70 in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 140. NEHEMIAH, New London, freem. 1666. NICHOLAS, Boston 1672, hir. a farm of Gov. Bellingham. PETER, Marlborough, s. of Thomas the first, by w. Rebecca had Elisha, b. 1690; Zipporah, 1691; Cyprian, 1693; Pelatiah, 1694; Elnathan; Peter; Abigail; Deborah; Rebecca; and Abraham, 1709. His w. d. 1749, and he d. 28 Nov. 1753, aged 95 yrs. and one mo. less a week, allow for change of style. By the common tendency to exagger. he is made 97 in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 140. Sev. of his ch. reach. old age. 

PHILIP, Boston 1640, is call. a tailor, on his unit. with [[vol. 3, p. 531]] the ch. 21 Nov. 1641. He d. prob. in 1665. PHINEAS, Sudbury, youngest s. of Joseph first of the same, m. 2 Oct. 1707, Elizabeth d. of Daniel Willard of the same, had sev. ch. by her, wh. d. 9 Mar. 1761, but I kn. neither names nor dates, and he d. 4 Sept. 1768. RANDALL, Warwick, s. of first John of the same, had childr. but no rec. is seen of them. RICHARD, Cambridge 1635, rem. to Concord 1636, freem. 2 June 1641, had Elizabeth b. 27 Oct. 1641; and John, 23 Feb. 1644; d. 9 June 1709, aged, says the rec. more than 100 yrs. wh. Shattuck judicious. reduced. Farmer reports that he left 8 s. wh. liv. to gr. ages, showing how easy tradition borrowed for him the facts of Edmund, of wh. he is not kn. to be a relat. 

ROBERT, Boston, spelled Roys, Rois, and Royce, in dif. rec. freem. 1 Apr. 1634, had prob. come 1631, as he is No. 137 on the list of ch. mem. by w. Elizabeth had Joshua, b. 14, bapt. 16 Apr. 1637; Nathaniel, bapt. 24 Mar. tho. town rec. says b. 1 Apr. 1639; and Patience, b. 1 Apr. 1642, bur. next week; Nathaniel d. young. His wid. m.
