OBADIAH, Southampton, L. I. 1673, where Thompson thinks he was in 1640, wh. would compel us to suppose, that he rem. from Lynn, to that place. In 1683, at the neighb. town of Southold are found Obadiah, and Obadiah, jr. among the tax payers. PETER, Windsor, d. 13 June 1651, as Stiles, 767, tells, but adds no more, subtract. final s.

WILLIAM, York, was adm. freem. 1652. WILLIAM, Boston, Farmer says, had sev. ch. b. there, and d. 13 July 1664; but I doubt he relied on informat. that has not reached me. WILLIAM, Boston, merch. by w. Susanna, if that name be not wrong, had Mary, b. 9 Apr. 1667; perhaps had sec. w. at least m. 22 Apr. 1676, inv. of his est. was taken by his wid.

SAMUEL, New London, s. of the preced. m. 9 Jan. 1667, Hannah, d.of Josiah Churchwood of Wethersfield, freem. 1669, rem. to Wallingford. Oft. the same appears Rise or Rice, and may have been sometimes confound. with Rose.
ROLESTONE, ROWLSTONE, or ROULSTONE, JOHN, a soldier in Philip's war, at Northampton 1676, was prob. he of Boston, wh. by w. Mary had Thomas, b. 28 July 1686; Joseph, 28 Nov. 1688; and Mary, 29 Sept. 1690.
ROLFE, BENJAMIN, Newbury, weaver, gr.s. of Henry, says Coffin, whose only s. John must then be infer. to be f. but reason is found for call. him br. of John, and s. of Henry, was b. betw. 1637 and 1640, freem. 1659, or more prob. 1670, by w. Apphia, wh. he m. 3 Nov. 1659, had John, b. 12 Oct. 1660; Benjamin, 13 Sept. 1662, H. C. 1684, chaplain to our forces at Falmouth 1689, the sec. min. of Haverhill, ord.

His w. d. 24 Dec. 1708, and he d. 10 Aug. 1710. DANIEL, Ipswich, s. of Robert, wh. came not prob. to this country, m. Hannah, d. of Humphrey Bradstreet, had, perhaps, Daniel, Ezra, and other ch. and may have d. at Salem, June 1654. His wid. m. 12 June 1648. Nicholas Holt of Andover, and d. 20 June 1665. DANIEL Ipswich, s. prob. of the preced. may be that s.-in-law of Robert Collins, k. in Philip's war.
EZRA, Haverhill, s. prob. of Daniel the first [[vol. 3, p. 571]] m. 2 Mar. 1676, Abigail, d. of John Bond, had Abigail, b. 17 Sept. 1677; Ezra, 24 Nov. 1680; Daniel, 14 Feb. 1685; Mary and Martha, tw. 23 Nov. 1687; and he was wound. and capt. by the Ind. 17 Oct. 1689, and d. 3 days aft. HENRY, Newbury, one of the early sett. prob. from Co. Wilts, with w. and childr. of wh. John, Benjamin, and Hannah, wh. m. the first Richard Dole, are kn. d. 1 Mar. 1643; in his will of 15 Feb. preced. beside w. and ch. he names br. John and neph. John Saunders, and calls Thomas Whittier, kinsman. Perhaps his wid. was Honour, wh. d. at Charlestown, 19 Dec. 1650.
JOHN, Newbury, br. of the preced. came in the Confidence 1638, from Southampton, aged 50, in the custom ho. call. husbandman of Melchit Park, Wilts, with w. Ann, d. Esther, and serv. Thomas Whittier, call. Whittle in Geneal, Reg. V. 440, and XIV. 335, was freem. 6 Sept. 1639, by our Secr. spell. Roffe, as at the Southampton custom h. Mr. Somerby in Geneal. Reg. V. 440, assures us it was Roaf, correcting Mr. Steven's eyesight in II. 109, Mr. Drake says, Geneal. Reg. XIV. 335, it was Roaff, vindicating the honor of Mr. Somerby's vision; in ea. of the three cases, no doubt, foll. the sound, as it reach. the ear of the subordinate official, bec. one of the earliest propr. of Salisbury, there taxed 1650 and 2; perhaps had sec. w. Esther, wh. d. 3 June 1647; in July 1663, he was one of the proprs. of Nantucket, and d. 8 Feb. 1664. His d. Esther m. John Saunders. But of ano. JOHN of Newbury, prob. s. of Henry, we hear, that he m. 4 Dec. 1656, Mary Scullard, possib. d. of Samuel, had Mary, b. 2 Nov. 1658, d. next mo.; Mary, again, 16 Jan. 1660; and Rebecca, 9 Feb. 1662; and Coffin thot. him br. of Henry, to wh. I discern obj. Ano. JOHN, Nantucket, may have gone from Newbury, but at the first nam. place had John, b. 5 Mar. 1664; Samuel, 8 Mar. 1665; Sarah, 2 Dec. 1667; Joseph, 12 Mar. 1670; and Hannah, 5 Feb. 1672; possib. may have gone back to Newbury, and been the man wh. Coffin says d. 30 Sept. 1681.
Yet of ano. JOHN of Newbury, if he be not one of the preced. C. tells us that he had w. Dorothy, and s. John, b. 24 Mar. 1691; and Jonathan 2 Aug. 1695. Farmer names Thomas of Ipswich 1648, but he eludes my search, unless he be the man of Guilford, wh. had m. Elizabeth Disbrow, and for some heinous offence ran off for refuge to the col. of Rhode Island, and so his w. obt. divorce, 1 Oct. 1651, by the jurisdict. of New Haven col. resum. her maiden name, and m. John Johnson of the same town, and she d. 23 Dec. 1669. Four of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and three at the other N. E. coll.
ROLLO, ALEXANDER, Middletown, one of the earliest proprs. of East Haddam, d. 22 July 1709.
ROLLOCK, ROBERT, Sandwich, d. prob. Sept. 1669.
ROMAN, JOHN, Cambridge, d. 19 Dec. 1638. Of this solitary name not other occurrence is kn. [[vol. 3, p. 572]]
RONALLS, JOHN, JOSIAH, and SAMUEL, perhaps br. s at Wickford 1674, may have spelled variously.
ROOD, THOMAS, Norwich, had sev. childr. bef. liv. there; Sarah , b. Oct. 1649; Thomas, Mar. 1651; Micah, Feb. 16. 1653; Rachel, Feb. 1655; John, Sept. 1658; Joseph, Mar. 1661; Benjamin, Feb. 1633; Mary, Mar. 1664, d. soon; and Samuel, June 1666. His w. d. happi. Mar. 1668, for his d. Sarah was whip. and he execut. 18 Oct. 1672, as in Trumbull. Col. rec. II. 184, is detail. Perhaps the name was changed to Rudd or Rude. JOHN, with this latter spelling was a petitnr. 1686, for Preston townsh.
ROOKER, WILLIAM, Hadley, petitio, against imposts. 1668, took the o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679.
ROOKMAN, JOHN, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 45, with w. Elizabeth 31, and s. John, 9; but the name is never found in any of our settlem.

His w. d. 15 May 1720; and he d. 25 May 1723.

See the nuncup. will in Geneal. Reg. XV. 76. Mary, aged 15, wh. came in the Abigail, was perhaps his d. RICHARD, Lynn, was of Salem ch. 1636, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, may have rem. to Fairfield, where the rec. of his name always has s final. He there d. bef. 1653, when his wid. Margaret m. Michael Try.

RICHARD, Salem, prob. br. of the preced. m. 7 June 1670, Ruth, d. of John Ingersoll, had Richard, b. 20 Apr. 1674; and John, 16 Aug. 1678. The preced. sent. in Essex Inst.

JOHN, Watertown 1636, rem. to Branford, was of the jury, perhaps, in 1649, and was liv. there 1667. He had m. the wid. of William Luddington in 1663, and d. in the spring of 1683, and Porter advises me, that the name should be Ross; and he adds to the issue, Elizabeth b. 21 Dec. 1665; and Hannah, 24 Aug. 1668; but his ch. by former w. were Martha, wh. m. William Luddington; John; Mary, wh. m. a Bates; and Hannah, w. prob. of Edward Frisbie. In his will, of 18 Apr. 1683, these are all ment. as is gr.d. Elizabeth Rose. He may have been s. of Robert, and f. of that John, wh. the Cambridge rec. says d. 12 Dec. 1640. JOHN, Scituate, s. of Thomas, k. by the Ind. 15 Mary. 1676, in Rehoboth fight, under Capt. Pierce.
JOHN, New Haven, call. jr. m. Aug. 1670, Phebe, wid. of Joseph Potter, prob. had d. Elizabeth JOHN, Marshfield, perish. 13 Feb. 1677, with cold, when shoot. on the beach.

JOSEPH, Marshfield, s. of Thomas, m. 6 June 1654, Elizabeth Bumpus, perhaps d. of Edward. RICHARD, Salem 1668. *ROBERT, Wethersfield 1639, but he went, it is thought, from Watertown, came in the Francis from Ipswich, Co. Suff'k. 1634, aged 40, with w. Margery, 40, and ch. John, 15; Robert, 15; Elizabeth 13; Mary, 11; Samuel, 9; Sarah, 7; Daniel, 3; and Dorcas, 2; was constable 1640, rep. 1641, 2 and 3; rem. bef. 1648 to Stratford, where the list of freem. 1669 bears his name, unless it be of his s. ROBERT, wh. is more prob. for one R. (James, as Mr. Whitmore, in Geneal, Reg. XII. 301, says), d. at Branford, leav. good est. in 1664 or 5; and I judge the younger was among early sett. at Easthampton, L. I. 1650. His will of 25 Aug. 1664, and inv. of good est. 2 June foll. His w. Rebecca, ch. Jonathan, Hannah, John, Mary, Elizabeth and five others. Mary, d. of the younger Robert, m. a 1676, Moses Johnson of Stratford; and Hannah m. Isaac Stiles jr.

THOMAS, New London, m. bef. 1683, Hannah, d. of Robert Allyn, was one of the grantees of Preston, 1686. THOMAS, Marblehead 1673, may be the same as the preced, or quite as likely of Billerica 1679, unless this be wrongly writ. for Ross. THOMAS, Scituate, s. of Thomas the first, had Gideon, b. 1702; and prob. others. At Block isl. in 1678, some Rose, with a wild spell. termed Rose, in ano. place, Tormot Roosse, was a townsman, as in the diligent extr. of Geneal. Reg. XIII. 37. In the Index his name bee.
