SAMPSON, ABRAHAM, Duxbury 1638, perhaps br. of Henry, m. a d. of Samuel Nash, and Windsor says, he had a sec. w. His ch. were Abraham, Isaac, Samuel, wh. was by the Ind. in Philip's war, and George, b. 1655. ABRAHAM, Duxbury, s. of the preced. m. Sarah, d. of Alexander Standish, had Abraham, b. 1686; Miles, 1690; Ebenezer; Rebecca; Sarah; and Grace. CALEB, Duxbury, s. perhaps youngest, of Henry, m.

Elizabeth had Joseph, b. 14 May 1679; Abigail, 22 Jan. 1681;[[vol. 4, p. 10]] Judith, 3 Mar. 1683; Ruth, 22 Dec. 1684; Benjamin, 19 Sept. 1686; Martha, 25 Oct. 1689; George, 10 Mar. 1691; Elizabeth 22 Dec. 1692; William, 8 July 1693; and Seth, 22 Dec. 1697. His w. d. 27 May 1727, in her 70th yr. and he d. 26 July 1739, in his 84th yr. as Windsor tells.
HENRY, Plymouth 1620, came in the Mayflower, of the fam. of his uncle, Edward Tilley, a youth too small to sign the immortal compact of Nov. at Cape Cod; but whether, or not, entit. in the div. of lds. he was certain. in the div. of cattle, 1627, enumerat. in the comp. of Elder Brewster, liv. on Duxbury side, m. 6 Feb. 1636, Ann Plummer, had Stephen, John, James, Caleb, Elizabeth Hannah, Mary, and, perhaps, Dorcas, but when Bradford wrote, 1650, only seven ch. and d. 24 Dec. 1684.

JAMES, Dartmouth 1686. JOHN, Boston, merch. rem. perhaps, to Beverly 1671, there m. a d. of Richard Haynes, and bef. the begin. of Ind. war, 1675, may have liv. at Scarborough. Ano. JOHN, at New London, m. aft. 1672, not long bef. 1676, the wid. mo. of John Stodder, or Stother, a youth of only 16, wh. possess. by a malice almost incredib. murder. with an axe, 6 June 1678, Zipporah, w. of Thomas Bolles, with two of her ch. Joseph, and Mary, and soon aft. murder. John Sampson, s. of his mo. aged betw. one and two yrs. as by his own confess. is seen in the rec. of his trial at Hartford. For the soundness of the maxim in common law, malitia supplet aetatem, I believe, no stronger prorf can be found since the creation, in the stories of juven. depravity. He acknowl. that he k. his br. with a hatchet "bec. he cried, and bec. he did not love the ch. nor his f." and was execut. 9 Oct. foll.
RICHARD, by Farmer call. of Boston, the freem. of 1674, I dare not accept, but think, was rather appropr. by New Hampsh. ROBERT, Boston 1630, came in the same sh. with Gov. Winthrop wh. calls him cous. in a let. to his w. Apr. bef. depart. from Isle of Wight. His fam. was ancient. in the rank of knights, resid. at Sampson's Hall in the parish of Kersey, adj. Groton, where was patron as well as lord of the manor. He was s. of John, by Bridget Clopton, sis. of the sec. w. of our Gov. W. By Whitman he is count. a memb. of the ar. co. 1639; but it seems far more prob. (as we never hear of him aft.) that he was some yrs. gone home. ROGER, Ipswich 1654. STEPHEN, Duxbury, s. of Henry, had Benjamin; Cornelius; Hannah; Mary; Elizabeth; John, b. 17 Aug. 1688; Dorcas; and Abigail.
SAMS, or SAMMES, CONSTANTINE, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Richard, [[vol. 4, p. 11]] b. 7 Oct. 1678; Mary, 2 Dec. 1684; Mercy, 3 July 1687, d. soon; and Mercy, again, 12 Jan. 1689. JOHN, Roxbury 1640, went to Eng. and at Coggeshall, in Co. Essex, was success. in the pulpit of celebr. John Owen, D. D. says Calamy, from wh. he was eject. 1675; and the eccles. hist. tells, that he was educat. in N. E. Very strange it seems, that no more is kn. of him here, but that in R. he purch. lds. of Rev. Thomas Weld, of capt. John Johnson, and of Joseph Weld, a. 1640, to amount, in aggreg. of L134. and that in Sept. 1642, Gov. Thomas Dudley, on ex'con. for L51. got the whole, in pt. satisfact. thereof, by appraisem. at L42, 17, 8 1/2, so that little benefit of his acres was enjoy. by the poor scholar, wh. could not redeem his est. See Dudley's investit. in Reg. of Suff'k. Deeds, I. 37.
RALPH, Dorchester, a tailor, rem. to Boston bef. 1659; and was liv. 1663. THOMAS, Salem, had gr. of ld. in 1638, as Felt. tells, and liv. at Marblehead 1648. Yet he may have been of Roxbury 1637, and one of the appraisers on inv. of Edward Blackley.
SAMUEL, JOHN, Boston, wh. m. 24 Dec. 1652, wid. Lucy Wight, is call. mariner in 1656; and he d. 8 Dec. 1662, or his inv. was then made.
SAMWAYS, SAMWAYES, SAMOIS, or SAMWIS, JOHN, Huntington, L. I. adm. freem. of Conn. 1644, perhaps was s. of the foll. RICHARD, Windsor 1640, had one ch. wh. d. 1648, and he d. 1650, leav. wid. Esther, and perhaps, two ch. But the name was not long in W. so that, by var. spell. Hinman, 71, made two out of him.

JOHN, Hampton 1643, by tradit. said to have come from Co Derby, and more prob. to be s. of John by a d. of Rev. Stephen Bachiler, wh. left three s. John, William, and Stephen, to the care of their gr.f. by wh. they were brot. in the William and Francis, arr. at Boston from London, 5 June 1632.

JOSIAH, Hampton, s. of William of the same, m. 25 Aug. 1681, Hannah Moulton, had William, b. 2 Mar. 1682; Hannah, 1684; and Sarah, 1686.

But in the fam. geneal. when we read that he had sec. w. Sarah, it would be agreeable to discern what portion of these eleven ch. all liv. in 1721, were b. respective. by ea. as great unwillingness must be felt at inflict. the whole on either.
RICHARD, Hampton, br. of the preced. m. 5 Dec. 1678, Ruth Moulton, had Mary, b. 30 Sept. 1679; John, 6 Nov. 1681; and Ruth; but by sec. w. m. 20 Dec. 1693, wid. Mary, of sec. Nathaniel Boulter, he had Shubael, b. next yr. STEPHEN, Hampton, br. perhaps youngest, of the first John, went home, it is said, with his gr.f. Bachiler, wh. had brot. him, of course, in his youth.

SANBROOKE, THOMAS, Boston, whose will of 16 May 1649, pro. 6 Feb. foll. is seen in Geneal. Reg. VII. 227, could not be other than a trans. trader here.
SANDERBANT, JOHN, the freem. of 10 May 1643, is, I doubt not, blunder of Mr. Secr. for Sunderland, as shall in that place be explain.
SANDON, or SANDERS, Salem 1639, on Marblehead side, had license to keep an inn, and in 1645 to sell wine; d. a. 1667.
SANDS, or SANDES, JAMES, Block Isl. now call. New Shoreham, was b. it is said, 1622, at Reading, Co. Berks, came with w.

I. and freem. 1655. See Niles, in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VI. 192. In Hist. of New London, 293, Caulkins ment. at his d. Mercy m. 29 Apr. 1683, Joshua Raymond; and that she was incident. connect. with the famous pirate, Wiliam Kidd. Beside that Mercy he had John, James, Samuel, and ano. s. and d. 13 Mar. 1695. James and Samuel liv. at Cowneck, on L. I. JOHN, Charlestown, d. 28 June 1659; but as this surname is not seen in the rec. of ch. or of town resid. 1654, he may have been only trans. inhab.

He went with Coddington, Hutchinson, and others, to purch. R. I. and liv. at Portsmouth, the N. end of the isl. is in the list of freem. there 1655, was constable, treasr. Secr. Assist. 1647, and chos. head of the Colo. as Presid. in May 1653. One or more of his ch. were tak. by the Ind. when they k. Mrs. Hutchinson, it is said; and the friend. visit from a distance of a hundred and thirty miles, shows the intimacy the poor wid. kept up with old acquaint. When he d. is not heard.
JOHN, Boston, by w. Bridget had Ann, wh. d. 26 Aug. 1654, as prob. the f. had good time bef. and the wid. m. lieut.

JOHN, Boston, the sch.master, wh. I rejoice to say, taught writ.; m. 19 Feb. 1657, Sarah, wid. of Robert Potter, was perhaps, the freem. of 11 Oct. 1670, and d. 10 Feb. 1677. His will, of 19 Jan. preced. pro. 24 Apr. foll. ment. no ch. but gives all est. to w.

I. and L10. to Stephen Coppock of L. I. The excors. were nam. w. Sarah and capt. Timothy Wheeler, but he renounc. the office. Wh. Coppock was, or how he or Turner were relat. to testator is unkn. but I hazard the conject. that he was br. of Turner's w.

ROBERT, Hartford, prob. youngest s. of Robert of the same, had a fam. but details have not reach. me. SAMUEL, Milford, s. of Thomas, propound. for freem. 1669, d. 1691, leav. wid. Hannah, and ch.

Ct. of that Province, with other dignitaries, 25 June of that yr. Willis, I. 47. Of the doings of that Ct. I employ. an amnanuensis to take large extr.
