RIDGEWAY, or RIDGAWAY, JOHN, Malden, had w. Mary, wh. d. 24 Dec. 1670.

RIDLAND, JOHN, Charlestown, of wh. no more is kn. by me but that his name is in the list of household. 1678.

RIDLEY, RICHARD, came in the Planter, a serv. of Martin Saunders, from London 1635, aged 16, but no more is kn. of him.

RIFF, RICHARD, Salem, seems a strange name, but is in the list of freem. 1678.

RIGBY, EDWARD, Lancaster 1654. JOHN, Dorchester 1637, freem. 18 May 1642, d. in Apr. 1647; was perhaps f. of the Samuel, bapt. there 21 Mar. 1641, and of Abigail, wh. m. 19 Feb. 1664, Thomas Holman. SAMUEL, Dorchester 1662, perhaps s. of the preced. shoemaker, by first w. had Elizabeth wh. m. 23 Jan. 1678, Watching Atherton; and Mehitable; and by sec. w. had John and Silence

RIGGS, ANDREW, Gloucester, youngest s. of the first Thomas, m. 24 Jan. 1704, Mary Richardson, had s. William, Joseph, and George, besides six ds. not nam. in Babson's Hist. wh. tells that he was liv. so late as 1771. EDWARD, Roxbury 1633, brot. w. Elizabeth and ch. Lydia, wh. d. Aug. 1633, being the earliest on the rec., Elizabeth wh. d. in May next; and John d. Oct. foll. and his w. d. next yr. in Oct. He m. 5 Apr. 1636, Elizabeth Rooke, by wh. he had not any ch. nam. on rec. of b. and therefore it may be conclud. that he had brot. one other s. and two ds. wh. liv. to m. but all d. bef. him. The w. d. 1666, and he was bur. 5 Mar. 1672, in his will of 2 Sept. 1670, naming s. Edward as dec. leav. wid. and childr. beside Joseph, Hannah, and other childr. of his d. Mary Twitchell, and gr.ch. Elizabeth Allen. He was freem. 14 May 1634. EDWARD, Milford 1640, s. prob. of the preced. b. in Eng. had perhaps John and Samuel, and was one of the early sett. at Paugusset, after nam. Derby, but d. bef. his f. 

JOHN, Milford, s. of the preced. d. 1670. JOHN, Gloucester, s. of the first Thomas, m. 1 Jan. 1690, Ruth Wheeler, had s. John, Jeremiah, and Jonathan, beside one that d. inf. and seven ds.; and d. 12 Jan. 1748. SAMUEL, Milford 1671, then propound. for freem. may have been br. of the first John, m. 1667, Sarah, d. of Richard Baldwin of the same, and rem. to Derby. STEPHEN, Marblehead 1674. THOMAS, Gloucester, was town clk. 51 yrs. selectman 20, sometime sch.m. rep. [[vol. 3, p. 542]] 1700; m. 7 June 1658, Mary d. of Thomas Millet, wh. d. 23 Jan. 1695, had Mary, b. 6 Mar. 1659; Thomas, 23 Jan. 1661, d. in few days; Sarah, 16 Jan. 1662; Ann, 27 Apr. 1664; Thomas, again, 7 Dec. 1666; John, 25 Feb. 1670; Elizabeth 22 Apr. 1672; Abigail, 29 Dec. 1678; and Andrew, 8 Jan. 1682. He m. 30 Oct. 1695, Elizabeth Frese, and d. 26 Feb. 1722, aged 90. His wid. d. 16 June foll. aged 80. Mary, m. 21 Nov. 1677, Benjamin Haskell; and Sarah, m. 9 May 1681, John Tucker. THOMAS, Gloucester, eldest s. of the preced. m. 22 Nov. 1687, Ann Wheeler of Salisbury, had the same number of ch. male and fem. as his br. John, call. the s. Thomas, Moses, Aaron, and Joshua, but the seven ds. go without names, and all the ch. without dates.

RIGHT, GEORGE, freem. 18 May 1642, was, I think, either of Dorchester or Weymouth; tho. more prob. with an initial W. of Braintree. JOSEPH, Woburn, freem. 1690, when jun. is affix. so that there was an elder of the same name. ROBERT, Boston, had d. Hannah, wh. m. 1669, William Hoar; but the spelling is often with initial W.

RIGMAN, EPHRAIM, a soldier in Philip's war, 1675 and 6, under Capt. Poole, on Conn. riv.

RILEY, HENRY, Rowley, d 1710, aged 82. JOHN, Wethersfield, by w. Grace had John, b. 1646; Joseph, 1649; Jonathan, 1651; beside Mary, Grace, Sarah, Jacob, and Isaac, whose dates are unkn. but all the eight are named in this order in his will of 1671, soon after wh. he d. All exc. Jacob, wh. prob. d. earlier, div. the est. of Joseph, wh. without w. or ch. in 1706; and John and Jonathan d. 1711; Grace m. 22 Nov. 1680, William Goodrich the sec. JOHN, Springfield, by w. Margaret had Margaret, b. 1662; and Mary, 1665; was freem. 1671, and d. 24 Oct. 1684. His wid. d. 22 Aug. 1689. Margaret, his d. m. 1685. RICHARD, by Hinman count. as one of the early sett. at Wethersfield, is by me thought to mean Risley.

RINDGE, DANIEL, Roxbury 1639, rem. to Ipswich bef. 1648, prob. had ch. ISAAC, Ipswich, perhaps s. of the preced. m. a. 1692, Elizabeth d. of John Dutch. JARVIS, Salisbury, freem. 1690. We may hardly doubt that this should be Ring, and that he was s. of Robert. JOHN, Ipswich 1664, was perhaps br. of the preced. Daniel, H. C. 1709, wh. d. 1712, may have been s. of Isaac, or other s. of first Daniel.

RING, ANDREW, Plymouth, whose wid. mo. made her will there 28 Oct. 1633, leav. him to the care of Elder Fuller, came prob. a. 1629, was freem. 1646, m. that yr. Deborah, d. of Stephen Hopkins, had William; Eleazer; Mary; Deborah; and Elizabeth 19 Apr. 1652. He was one of the first sett. of Middleborough, had for sec. w. Lettys, wid. of John Morton. His sis. Elizabeth wh. m. Stephen Dean, and Susanna, wh. m Thomas Clark, were both older than A. which d. 1692, in 75th yr. [[vol. 3, p. 543]] Whether his f. came or d. in Eng. is uncert. JARVIS, Salisbury, s. of Robert, m. 24 Dec. 1685, Hannah Fowler, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Jarvis, b. 2 Oct. 1686; Hannah, 3 Mar. 1689; Elizabeth 3 Sept. 1692, and Oliver, 17 June 1698. JOHN, perhaps of Salisbury, came in the Bevis 1638, from Southampton, was a carpenter. 

JOHN, Ipswich, m. 18 Nov. 1664, Mary, eldest d. of Thomas Bray of Gloucester, rem. thither, perhaps, bef. 1697, or at least his w. there d. 11 Apr. 1725, aged 7, and the prob. had William, Daniel, and David, possib. also, John. JOHN, Salisbury, s. of Robert, by w. Priscilla had Moses, b. 30 Apr. 1692. ROBERT, Salisbury, one of the first sett. came in the Bevis, 1638, from Southampton, as serv. of Richard Austin, was perhaps br. of John, freem. 9 Oct. 160, by w. Elizabeth had Martha, b. 12 Dec. 1654; Jarvis, Feb. 1658; John, 17 Feb. 1662; and Joseph, 3 Aug. 1664. THOMAS, had been of Salem, perhaps in 1637, was after of Exeter, there d. 1667.

RIPLEY, ABRAHAM, Hingham, s. of William, brot. by his f. from Eng. freem. 1656, m. Mary, eldest d. of Joseph Farnsworth of Dorchester, wh. outliv. him, and, 1684, m. Edward Jenkins of Scituate. JOHN, Hingham, elder s. of William, b. in Eng. m. Elizabeth eldest d. of Rev. Peter Hobart, was freem. 1656, and d. soon after date of his will, Jan. 1684, in wh. he names ch. only, John, b. 2 Mar. 1657; Joshua, Jeremiah, Josiah, Peter, and Hezekiah. JOSHUA, Hingham, s. of the preced. m. 28 Nov. 1682, Hannah, d. of Dept. Gov. William Bradford. JOSIAH, Hingham, br. of the preced. by w. Joanna had Mary, b. 18 Feb. 1695. WILLIAM, Hingham 1638, came, as by the contempo. MS. of his townsman, Daniel Cushing, we learn, with w. and two s. and two ds. from Hingham, Co. Norfolk, Eng. was freem. 18 May, 1642, m. 29 Sept. 1654, as sec. w. Elizabeth wid. of Thomas Thaxter, and d. 20 July 1656. His will of 30 June preced. abstr. in Geneal. Reg. VI. 354, is minute eno. as to the geogr. of his lds. but names no relat. exc. the two s. wh. are made excors. His d. Sarah m. 18 Oct. 1653, Jeremiah Beal, but neither she nor the other d. nor w. are ment. The latter m. 20 Jan. 1658, John Dwight of Dedham. One WILLIAM, was of Gallop's comp. for the sad campaign against Quebec, 1690. Nine of this name had been, in 1834, gr. at Yale, five at Harv. and six at other N. E. coll.

RISCRRAFT, RICHARD, Northampton, took the o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679.

RISDEN, ELISHA, Milford, 1678, s. of Robert, perhaps rem. ROBERT, Boston 1654, mariner, by w. Beatrice, had Elisha, b. 25 Jan. 1655; and Sarah, 29 May 1662, rem. to Fairfield, there with w. d. a. 1666, leav. five ch. wh only Elisha is nam. He own beside prop. at F. est. at the isle of Nevis, sold by guardians of the ch. wh.in 1678, desired to abrog. the contr.

RISHWORTH, EDWARD, Exeter 1639, Wells 1643, m. a d. of Rev. [[vol. 3, p. 544]] John Wheelwright, whose name is not seen, had Edward and a d. Mary, wh. in the will of her gr.f. W. is nam. White, d. of Edward R. was of York 1652, of Godfrey's council, to support Gorges' patent 1649, as well as three yrs. preced. rep. for York 1653, and 12 yrs. succeed. last in 1679, after wh. yr. no more rep. came from Maine under the old chart. was in high esteem, either as republican or royalist, a magistr. of Mass. 1681, and liv. as Farmer says, in 1683. But strong reason is found in the will of Samuel Hutchinson and of Rev. John Wheelwright for presumpt. that f. and s. were by Farmer here confus. He had, beside Edward, prob. other ch. and perhaps had m. in Eng. a sis. of the w. of W. for S. H. in his will, Apr. 1667, gives to E. R. by the descript. of "eldest s. of sis. R." and it may fairly be assumed that the f. was then d. At least, the magistr. of 1681, wh. was prob. the recorder of 1671, must be judged, after Apr. 1667, to have m. that Sarah W. the unm. d. of Rev. John, nam. in her uncle's will, and to be ment. in 1679 in the will of her f. calling him "s.-in-law." Difficulty, however, attends this hypothesis, because it is said, that Richard Crisp m. 1671, Sarah, that d. of Rev. John Wheelwright. Still, R. may have m. the cousin, wid. of C.

RISING, JAMES, Boston, m. 7 July 1657, Elizabeth d. of Robert Hinsdale of Medfield, rem. to Bermudas, there was of the ch. and brot. letters from their pastor, Nathaniel White, H. C. 1646, and was adm. a. 1662, of Salem ch. and rem. in few yrs. to Windsor, where his w. d. 1669, as did ano. w. 2 Apr. 1674; had James, John, b. 14 Apr. 1661; and Hannah, 28 Feb. 1663; these two at S. perhaps other ch. bef. his rem. kept the ferry at W. rem. to Suffield a. 1679, there d. 11 Sept. 1688. His s. James d. 1690 without ch. JOHN, Suffield, s. of the preced. m. 1684, d. 1720, leav. John, James, Josiah, Jonatan, Joseph, Aaron, and Moses, beside four ds. Rysand was the spell. at S.

Mary had John, b. 1676, d. in few yrs.; Joshua, 1678; Samuel, 1680; John, again 1684; and Richard, 1687; made his will 1 July 1689, and d. prob. in Nov. foll. unless Hinman, 291, be right in prolong. his days. 

JOSHUA, Wethersfield, br. of the preced. was in office in the town 1678, 9, 81, 2, 9, 90, and 3, yet Hinman, ut sup. says. he d. young, perhaps confus. the brs. or rem. and was not found there after d. of his f. But the town rec. proves that he took Elizabeth 1680, and possib. he had childr. Frequent. the name of [[vol. 3, p. 546]] mem. of this fam. is with single b. NATHANIEL, Cambridge, prob. s. of Richard, by w. Mary had Mary, wh. d. 30 Nov. 1676; and perhaps others; was freem. 1690, d. Dec. 1719, in 71st yr. 

NICHOLAS, Duxbury, 1638, by w. Ann had John, Mary, Hannah, and Rebecca, all ment. in his will of 9 Feb 1651. RICHARD, Charlestown 1639, with w. Rebecca of the ch. 24 May 1640; rem. to Boston, soon after to Cambridge, had John bapt. 31 May 1640; Samuel, b. 22 May 1643; Nathaniel; and Rebecca; of wh. the last three were bapt. at Cambridge, Mitchell's ch. reg. tells, as the first had been at Charlestown. He was liv. Apr. 1683. Rebecca m. John Woodward. ROBERT, Concord 1678. SAMUEL, Salisbury, in his will of 22 Aug. 1665, names f. John, mo. Esther, and br. Joseph of Thedingworth in Leicestersh. Eng. and therefore I suppose he was only trans. not perman. inhab. SAMUEL, Cambridge, prob. s. of Richard, was freem. 1680, when he liv. at the vill. now Newton. THOMAS, Duxbury 1643, may be he of Salem 1650, whose wid. m. Michael Spencer of Lynn. THOMAS, Salem, had w. Isabel, wh. d. 9 Oct. 1674, and m. 11 Mar. foll. Mary Bishop, a wid. sw. in 1675, that he was 55 yrs. old. WILLIAM, Reading, freem. 1691, perhaps d. at Boston 1693; but Winsor names a William of Hingham, wh. m. 1665, Susanna Lane. Thirteen of this name had been gr. at Yale, nine at Harv. and seven at other N. E. coll. in 1834.

ROBERTS, DAVID, Woburn, m. 3 Oct. 1678, Joanna Brooks, had Eunice, b. 28 Oct. 1679; David, 24 Oct. 1681; Giles, 16 Jan. 1687; Joanna, 13 Feb. 1694; Sarah, 15 Jan. 1697; and perhaps he rem. ELI, New Haven, a propr. 1685. GEORGE, Exeter 1677, in 1690 desir. jurisdict. of Mass. GILES, Scarborough 1662, perhaps br. of David, had five ch. of wh. none but Abraham is nam. His will of 25 Jan. 1667, only five days bef. the inv. does not enlighten us, exc. by call. Arthur Auger, and William Sheldon, his brs.-in-law. HUGH, Gloucester, m. 8 Nov. 1649, Mary, d. of Hugh Caulkins, rem. to New London, where he was a tanner, and had Mary, b. 9 Dec. 1652; Samuel, 25 Apr. 1656; and Mehitable, 15 Apr. 1658; in 1667, with others of the oldest sett. went to Newark, N. J. JOHN, Roxbury, came, says the ch. rec. "in 1636, brought his aged mo. w. and ch. Thomas, Edward, Elizabeth Margery, Jane, Alice, Lydia, Ruth, and Deborah. He was one of the first fruits of Wales that came to N. E. called to Christ by the ministry of that rev. and worthy instrument Mr. Wrath." In its proper place the rec. has this: "7 Jan. 1645/6, old mother Roberts, a Welch woman, d. in the 103d yr. of her age. She was above 90 yrs. old when she left her native country." He was freem. 22 May 1639, d. 27 Nov. 1651. Of not one of the seven ds. do I find the m. or d. 

JOHN, Marblehead 1668. JOHN, Dover, s. of Thomas of the same, m. Abigail, d. of Hatevil Nutter, had Joseph; prob. Hatevil; Thomas; and Abigail, wh. m. 8 Nov. 1671, [[vol. 3, p. 547]] John Hall jr. of the same. He was active against the Quakers 1662, marshall 1680, mem. of a whig convention 1689, and d. 21 Jan. 1695, Belkn. in Farmer's ed. I. 91, 122. JOHN, Boston, freem. 1671. JOHN Northampton, k. by the Ind. 29 Oct. 1675. JOHN, Roxbury, a soldier k. by the Ind. at Sudbury fight, under Wadsworth, Apr. 1676. JOHN, Hartford, m. Elizabeth d. of Rev. Samuel Stone, the divorc. w. of William (Goodwin, 212, says Samuel, erron.) Sedgwick, had John, to wh. in her will 1681, his gr.mo. Stone gave some est. He rem. a. 1684, to Newtown, L. I. and with w. was liv. 1695. It is not kn. was his f. when he was b. or when he d. but he was an unfortun. man. JOHN, Gloucester, prob. s. of Robert of Ipswich, m. 4 Feb. 1678, Hannah, d. of Thomas Bray, had Nathaniel, b. 26 Mar. 1679; and John, 12 Dec. 1680; Samuel, 1685; Thomas, 1687; Ebenezer, 1690; Mary, 1696; and Job, 1701. He d. 10 Jan. 1714, and his wid. d. 23 Mar. 1717. 

JOHN, Hadley, wh. took o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, was perhaps s. of John of Northampton. JOHN, Boston, by w. Experience, had Sarah, b. Jan. 1686, d. young. JOSEPH, perhaps of Portsmouth, sent by Capt. Mason 1632, in the Lion, arr. at Boston, 16 Sept. ROBERT, Boston 1640, by w. Eunice had Timothy, b. 7 Aug. 1646; was of Ipswich 1648, d. a. 19 July 1663, leav. wid. Susanna, and eight ch. of wh. the eldest was John, and the youngest two were Abigail, b. 27 Mar. 1658; and Patience, 20 Feb. 1661. His wid. m. Thomas Perrin. ROBERT, Rowley 1676, perhaps s. of the preced. SAMUEL, Ipswich, d. June 1670, prob. for his inv. is of 21 that mo. SAMUEL, Norwich, s. of Hugh, by w. Elizabeth m. 9 Dec. 180, had Samuel, b. 20 Oct. 1682, wh. d. next mo. Hugh, 26 Oct. 1683, d. under six yrs. Mary, 22 Mar. 1685; Samuel, 9 May 1688; Elizabeth 12 Oct. 1690; and his w. d. 9 Apr. 1692. SIMON, Boston, m. 18 July 1654, Christian, d. of Alexander Baker, had John, b. 27 Apr. 1655; Simon, 22 Nov. 1656; Samuel, 18 Mar. 1658; Joseph, 18 Sept. 1662, d. young; Elizabeth 28 Dec. 1665; Ann, 18 July 1669; Benjamin, 8 Jan. 1671; and Joseph, again, 24 Jan. 1673. In Geneal. Reg. X. 303, may be read a fine specim. of the wretched vanity that was exhibit on the d. of a gr. s. 1774, wh. oft. characteriz. the obituary notices of people bearing the same surnames as memb. of noble houses in Eng. or France. THOMAS, Dover, prob. sett. there with the Hiltons, 1623, was Presid. of the Col. chos. in oppos. to noted John Underhill, had John, b. 1629; Thomas, 1633; Esther; Ann; Elizabeth and Sarah; and d. after 27 Sept. 1673 the date of his will, pro. 30 June foll. Esther m. John Martin; Ann m. James Philbrick; Elizabeth m. Benjamin Heard; and Sarah m. Richard Rich. 

THOMAS, Boston, perhaps s. of John of Roxbury, where he first liv. and mem. of that ch. by w. Eunice had Timothy, Elizabeth Lydia, and Eunice, this last b. 18 Aug. 1653; ar. co. 1664; freem. 1645; [[vol. 3, p. 548]] d. prob. July 1654; and his wid. Eunice, m. 22 Oct. 1656, Moses Maverick, as his sec. w. THOMAS, Duxbury, 1640, m. 24 Mar. 1651 (Winsor, 286), or more prob. 1656, Mary, d. of Robert Paddock, may have rem. to Eastham.
