By James Savage
SAVIL,SAVEL, SAVILS, or SAVALLS, BENJAMIN, Braintree, s. of William the first, had w. Lydia, and was liv. 13 Dec. 1700, nam. in the will of his br. Samuel. EDWARD, Weymonth, had Obadiah, b. 20 July 1640. JOHN, Braintree, s. of William the first, may have been at Woburn, when freem. 1684. His will, of 8 Nov. 1687, pro. 2 Feb. 1691, names w. Mehitable, s. John, and Mehitable. SAMUEL, Woburn, perhaps br. of the preced. freem. 1684, yet it may be prob. that neither was of W. but of Braintree. He m. 10 Apr. 1672, Hannah, eldest d. of the first Joseph Adams, had Hannah, b. 13 July 1674; Abigail, 14 Feb. 1678; William and Deborah, tw. 19 Feb. 1680, both prob. d. early; Bethia, 17 Oct. 1681; beside eldest s. Samuel, and later b. John, Sarah, and Mary, nam. in his will of 13 Dec. 1700, as well as their mo. wh. was nam. extrix. until Samuel attain. full age. He d. 14 Dec. 1700.
WILLIAM, Braintree 1640, by w. Hannah had John, b. 22 Apr. 1642; Samuel, 30 Oct. 1643; Benjamin, 28 Oct. 1645; and William, 17 July 1652; beside ds. Hannah, 11 Mar. 1648; and Sarah, 1 Oct. 1654, but the last of ea. sex was by sec. w. m. 9 Aug. 1655, Sarah Gamitt, as the rec. has it, wh. by Mr. Vinton, 311, is read Jarmill, and in neither form is accessib. to any search of mine, yet in his will of 18 Feb. 1669 made extrix. Vexat. from contradict. rec. is frequent in these inquir. ad much refinem. will be need. to reconcile that m. as print, in Geneal. [[vol. 4, p. 28]] Reg. XII. 347, with the bs. in same Vol. 110 and XI. 334, "evident. the sec. w.'s childr." says Vinton, 298. His wid. m. 5 Sept. 1670, Thomas Faxon, and d. 1697. WILIAM, Braintree, s. of the preced. m. 1 Jan. 1680, Deborah, d. of Thomas Faxon the sec. and had sec. w. Experience, youngest d. of the sec. Edmund Quincy, and d. early in 1700. He serv. in brave capt. Johnson's comp. Dec. 1675, but Geneal. Reg. VIII. 242, makes him Stable. Only from his will of 31 Jan. pro. 7 Mar. foll. in wh. w. is made extrix. until his eldest s. William should be of age, do we learn names of other ch. Joseph, Benjamin, Deborah, and Judith; by wh. w. or when b. respective. is unkn. Yet I venture to conject. that the last nam. alone was by the Quincy w. wh. outliv. him six or seven yrs. His brs. Samuel and Benjamin also are ment. in that instrum.
SAVORY, SAVORIE, or SAVARY, ANTHONY, Dartmouth 1686, then a townsman, may not be the one by Farmer said to come, 1640, from Slade, in Devonshire, with Thomas S. Yet no such place was found by me. But if Thomas be he so unfavo. ment. in our Col. Rec. I. 248, sub an. 1638 refer. to the Ct. at Ipswich for one offence, and Ib. 297, sentenc. to be whip. for ano. 1640, and sold as a slave, our ign. may not be lament. ROBERT, Newbury, m. 8 Dec. 1656, Mary, wid. of William Mitchell, had Sarah, b. 12 Nov. foll.; William, 15 Sept. 1659; Samuel, 18 Mar. 1662; Richard, 20 Jan. 1664; and Robert, 8 Aug. 1666. SAMUEL, Plymouth, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, was aft. at Rochester, there had Mary, b. 3 Jan. 1678; Judah, 10 Jan. 1680; Susanna, 19 May 1690; and Samuel, 16 Nov. 1695; perhaps more ch. THOMAS, Plymouth, was in that serv. under Howland at Kennebeck, in Apr. 1634, when one of his compan. was k. by Hocking, wh. was forthwith k. by the Plymouth men. See the evid. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 80, and full relations by the Govs. Bradford of Plymouth and Winthrop of Mass. He was, I suppose, of Plymouth in 1643, had Moses, b. 22 Jan. 1650, d. soon; Samuel, 4 June 1651; Jonathan, or Thomas, 4 Mar. 1653, Mary, 7 Apr. 1654; and, perhaps, others. Either he or his s. Thomas is rememb. in the will of Timothy Hatherley, Sept. 1664.
THOMAS, a passeng. in the Mary and John from London, with William, perhaps his br. perhaps f. or hav. tak. o. of suprema. and alleg. 24 Mar. 1634, may have sat down first at Ipswich, but on our side of the sea was of narrower, perhaps, or wider faith than his fellows, and so driv. to Newport 1639, perhaps next to Sandwich, unless the Plymouth man had right to that place. THOMAS, Scituate, s. perhaps of Thomas of Plymouth, was in the employm. of Hatherley, and a doz. yrs. aft. d. of H. was k. by the Ind. 26 Mar. 1676, as one of the comp. of capt. Peirce. He was unm. Of WILLIAM, that fellow-passeng. with Thomas [[vol. 4, p. 29]] from London, 1634, in the Mary and John, it is equal. hard to follow any footstep.
SAWDY, JOHN, Boston, cordwainer, by w. Ann had Elizabeth b. 15 Oct. 1654; Mary, 24 Oct. 1656; John, 14 Oct. 1658, d. young; Joseph, 5 Dec. 1660; Benjamin, 7 Aug. 1663; John, again, Apr. 1666.
SAWIN, JOHN, Watertown 1641, s. of Robert of Boxford, Co. Suffk. was prob. brot. from Eng. by his mo. Abigail, a wid. sold his est. at home in 1651, was freem. 1652, m. Abigail, d. of George Munning, had John, whose b. is not told; Munning 4 Apr. 1655; and Thomas, 27 Sept. 1657. He m. sec. w. 16 Feb. 1667, Judith, youngest ch. of Anthony Pierce, as Bond tells, 423; but my suspic. is very strong, that the m. was with John, the s. for she was under 17 yrs. at that time, and p. 932, he gives countenance to that conject. for he makes John jr. have w. of that name. He was selectman 1664 and 72, and d. 2 Sept. 1690.
MUNNING, Watertown, s. of the preced. m. 15 or 18 Dec. 1681, Sarah, eldest d. of deac.

He was many yrs. town clk. treasr. and selectman, and d. 8 Nov. 1722. THOMAS, Sherborn, br. of the preced. m. 23 Jan. 1685, Deborah, d. of Matthew Rice, had Ruth, b. 24 July 1686; John, 26 June 1689; beside Deborah, 4 Apr. 1696, and perhaps, others.
SAWKYN, WILLIAM, came July 1635, a passeng. aged 25, in the Defence from London; but no more is told of him.
SAWTELL, SARTELL, SATTELL. or SAUTELL, Watertown, s. of Richard of the same, a weaver, by w.

He was adm. freem. 1672, and d. 6 Jan. 1691; OBADIAH, Groton, eldest br.of the preced. by w. Hannah, d. of George Lawrence, had Abigail, b. 13 Mar. 1666; and prob. Obadiah.
RICHARD, Watertown 1636, had Elizabeth b. 1 May 1638, wh. prob d. bef. her f.; Jonathan, 24 Aug. 1639; Mary, 19 Nov. 1640.; Hannah, 10 Dec. 1642; and Zechariah, 25 July 1645, unless the last fig. be wrong; beside Enoch, John, Ruth, and Bethia; was one of the early proprs. of Groton, and town clk. there, perhaps driv. back to W. by Ind. and there d. 21 Aug. 1694; in his will [[vol. 4, p. 30]] of 16 May 1692, names Elizabeth wh. d. 18 Oct. aft. him, and ch. Obadiah, Enoch, Bethia, John, Hannah, wh. had. m. 13 July 1665, Increase Winn, and Ruth, wh. had m. 9 Mar. 1677, John Hewes, beside childr. of s. Jonathan, of s. Zechariah, and of d. Mary Sterling. THOMAS, Boston, br. of the preced. on adm. of the ch. 17 Apr. 1647, call. "one of our teachers serv." freem. 1649, when the word is by Shurtleff or Pulcifer in Col. Rec. II. giv. Sacetell, wh. must be an impossib. name, but Sawtell by Paige; d. unm. 14 July 1651, or at least, made that day his nuncup. will, pro. 18 Nov. foll.
ZECHARIAH, Groton, s. of Richard, m. at Boston, Apr. 1668, Elizabeth Harris, perhaps d. of Robert, had Elizabeth b. Dec. 1671; and by w. Mary, that d. 2 Dec. 1699, had Ann, 14 Mar. 1674, as giv. by Butler, but by Bond one yr. earlier, and he also thinks a s. Nathaniel. Aft. the dispers. by the Ind. wars, there may have been others. At G. his fam. name has been large. diffus.
SAWYER, EDMUND, Ipswich 1636, rem. bef. 1661 to York. EDWARD, Rowley 1643, had w. Mary, and s. John. EZEKIEL, a soldier of "the flower of Essex," k. by the Ind. at Bloody brook, 18 Sept. 1675. HENRY, Haverhill 1646, perhaps next yr. of Hampton, and of York 1676. JAMES, Ipswich 1669, may have rem. to Gloucester, and by w. Sarah, d. of Thomas Bray, had Nathaniel, b. 1677; Abraham, 1680; Sarah, 1683; Isaac, 1684; Jacob, 1687; James, 1691; beside Thomas, John, and Mary, b. earlier, as Babson thinks, as also, that he was s. of William of Newbury. He d. 31 May 1703; but his wid. liv. long. JAMES, Lancaster, s. of Thomas, m. 4 Feb. 1678, Mary Marble. JOHN, Marshfield, m. Nov. 1666, Mercy Little, perhaps d. of Thomas, wh. was bur. 10 Feb. 1693, had Ann, bur. 1 Sept. 1682; and he m. 23 Nov. 1694, Rebecca, wid. of Josiah Snow, and d. 28 Apr. 1711.

Sept. 1677; William, 29 Apr. 1679; Sarah, 20 May 1681; John, 25 Apr. 1683, d. young; Jonathan, 4 Mar. 1685; Daniel, 13 June 1687; John, again, 10 Sept. 1688, d. next yr. was, perhaps, the freem. of 1681, print. in Paige's list, Sanyde, and in Shurtleff's Col. Rec. Sawyer. In the Paige catal. he is call. of Rowley, and there was tax. 1691, but he d. 30 May. 1689. Prob. his est. had not been admin. as all the ch. were too young. JOSHUA, Woburn, s. of Thomas of Lancaster, m. 2 Jan. 1678, Sarah Potter, had Abigail, b. 17 May 1679; Joshua, 20 June 1684; Sarah, 4 July 1687; Hannah, 15 Nov. 1689; Martha, 26 Apr. 1692; and Elizabeth 7 Nov. 1698; was adm. freem. 1690. RICHARD, Hartford, in employm. of John Cullick, there d. unm. 24 July 1648.
ROBERT, Hampton 1640. STEPHEN, Newbury, s. of William, by w. Ann had Ann, b. 1 Aug. 1687; Daniel, 28 Jan. 1689; and Enoch, 22 [[vol. 4, p. 31]] June 1694. THOMAS, Lancaster 1647, one of the first six sett. had been, I think, of Rowley 1643, freem. 1654, by w. Mary, d. of John Prescott, had Thomas, b. July 1649; Ephraim, 2 Jan. 1651, wh. was k. by the Ind. 10 Feb. 1676; Mary, 7 Jan. 1653; Elizabeth 7 Jan. 1654; Joshua, Mar. 1655; James, Mar. 1657; Caleb, Apr. 1659; John, Apr. 1661; and Nathaniel, Nov. 1670. Descend. are very num. tho. of the sec. generat. we are quite ign.
WILLIAM, Salem 1643, Wenham 1645, rem. to Newbury, by w. Ruth had John, b. 24 Aug. 1645; Samuel, 22 Nov. 1646; Ruth, 10 Sept. 1648; Mary, 7 Feb. 1650, d. soon; Sarah, 20 Nov. 1651; Hannah, 23 Feb. 1654, d. young; William, 1 Feb. 1656; Francis, 24 Mar. 1658, d. in 2 yrs.; Mary, again, 29 July 1660; Stephen, 25 Apr. 1663; Hannah, again, 11 Jan. 1655, d. at 18 yrs; and Francis, again, 3 Nov. 1670. Perhaps he had sec. w. Sarah, wid. of John Wells of Wells, parents of Rev. Thomas. His d. Mary m. 13 June 1683, John Emery third of N. SAMUEL, Newbury, s. of the preced. m. 10 Mar. 1671, Mary, d. of John Emery the sec. had Mary, b. 20 Jan. 1672; Samuel, 5 June 1674; John, 15 Mar. 1676; Ruth, 20 Sept. 1677; Hannah, 12 Jan. 1679; and Josiah, 20 Jan. 1681.

Sarah had Joseph, b. 14 Aug. 1678; Francis, 6 Mar. 1681; Daniel, 26 May 1683; Hannah, 9 Apr. 1685; and Ruth, 26 May 1687; and he d. 7 June 1718. His wid. d. Jan. 1734, aged 84. Oft. this name seems Sawer, and Sayer. Ten are among gr. at Harv. ten at Dart. and one at Yale.
SAXTON, or SEXTON, DANIEL, Westfield, perhaps s. of George, m. 28 Dec. 1680, Sarah, d. of John Bancroft, had Nathaniel, b. 22 Dec. foll. d. in 3 days; and Sarah, 6 Mar. 1683. GEORGE, Windsor, had John, b. there 26 May 1673, went back to Westfield, where he had liv. bef. and had Benjamin, a. 1667, said to be the first white b. in that place, wh. also liv. to old age, but Joseph bef. him, and prob. George earlier still, bef. W. was plant. and in 1688 sold to Joseph and Benjamin his est. there for L160., his w. Catharine join. in the deed, and he d. a. 1690. GEORGE, Westfield, s. prob. eldest of the preced. had, by w. that d. 19 Sept. 1689, Charles, b. 9 Sept. 1680; and Nathaniel, 5 Dec. 1682; and rem. to Newtown, L. I. GILES, Boston or Charlestown, prob. arr. in the fleet with Winthrop for on 18 Sept. 1630, he was a witness bef. the coroner as to d. of William Bateman in the harb. near Pullen point, and on 28 of same serv. on inq. at Charlestown on the case of Austin Bratcher, k. by Walter Palmer; req. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. foll. when the title Mr. is bef. his name, and was sw. 18 May next without that prefix. My conject. is that he soon went home, and that Deane was wrong in suppos. him the min. to wh. the Magnalia, III. 214, could not give Christian name, or tell time of com. or go. Better informa. is now enjoy.
JAMES, Westfield, perhaps s. of George the first, or of Richard, by w. Hannah had John, b. 28 Jan. 1681; Hannah, 29 Oct. 1683; Phebe, 7 Jan. 1687; Elizabeth 5 Feb. 1689, wh. d. at 3 mos.; Mary, or [[vol. 4, p. 32]] Mercy, 26 Dec. 1695; and James, 9 Nov. 1712; and d. 12 Dec. 1741. His. w. was d. of the first Ambrose Fowler. JOHN, Windsor, eldest s. of Richard, m. 30 July 1677, Mary Hill, d. of Luke, had Mary, b. 4 May foll. rem. to Simsbury, and had Richard and John. JOSEPH, Stonington, m. Hannah, d. of capt. George Denison of the same, had Jerusha, and Mercy; but of him I hear no more, exc. that he was a capt.
JOSEPH, Westfield, s. of George the first, m. 1690, Hannah, d. of the first Abel Wright of the same, had Gershom; Hannah, b. 1692; Joseph, 1694; Mindwell, 1696; Daniel, 1700, and Ezekiel, 1704; rem. to Enfield, and had Charles, 1708; and d. 1742, says Dr. Pease in the careful contribut. to Hinman, aged 76. PETER, Scituate 1640, aft. rem. of Lothrop, was from Yorksh. bred at Trinity Coll. Cambridge, where he proceed. A. M. 1603, adm. by Archbp. Hutton bef. 1606 to holy orders, liv. but few mos. in our country, and was not ord. yet may well be thot. one of the four min. that went home with dep.-gov. Humfrey, Dec. 1641, whose pious exclama. in the storm is so well told by Mather. Considera. offer was tender. him of good liv. in Kent; but, prefer. his native shire, he gain. the valua. vicarage of Leeds, to wh. the triumph of his party sent him in Apr. 1646, and there he d. 1 Oct. 1651. When here, his d. Silence m. capt. Samuel Pool. See Brook's Lives of the Puritans, III. 139. RICHARD, Windsor 1643, not early eno. to have been at Dorchester, yet said to have come in the ship Blessing, but the more important fact would have been a date, m. 16 Apr. 1646, Sarah Cook, perhaps sis. of Nathaniel, had Sarah, b. 23 Mar. 1648; John, 4 Mar. 1650; Mary, 27 Feb. 1652; Richard, 1 Mar. 1655, wh. fell in the gr. battle of Narraganset, 19 Dec. 1675; Patience, 28 June 1658, or Jan. 1659; Francis, 11 or 17 Jan. 1662, d. at 4 yrs. He d. 3 May 1662, and his wid. d. 13 June 1674; but in Stiles's Hist. 770, the ds. of h. and w. are exchang. in date. Sarah had bef. the latest date, perhaps Oct. 1668, Robert Roath of Norwich; and Mary m. George Saunders. THOMAS, Boston, miller, by w. Lucy had Mary, b. 2 Jan. 1645; and John, 29 June 1647. He m. 10 Mar. 1652; as sec. w. Ann, wid. of Herman Atwood. of William Copp, had Samuel, 8 Oct. 1653, whose gr.st. tells his d. 21 July 1693; Joseph, 9 May 1656; Nathaniel, 29 Nov. 1658, wh. d. at 19 yrs.; and Elizabeth 8 June 1661; and his w. d. 2 wks. aft. By a third w. Mary, he had Benjamin, 18 May 1664; and Mary, 9 Jan. 1666; and he d. 31 July 1686.
SAYER, SAYERS, or SAYRE, DANIEL, JOB, and FRANCIS, at Southampton, L. I. 1673, had, perhaps, rem. from Lynn, at least one Job was there 1635, and the others may have been his brs. or s. ICHABOD, New London, s. of Francis, m. 1697, Mary, d. of Hugh Hubbard, and this was the first m. says Miss Caulkins, solemniz. by Gov. Saltonstall.[[vol. 4, p. 33]] JAMES, from Northbourne, Co. Kent, came, 1635, in the Hercules from Sandwich, but we kn. not where he sat down. JAMES, Gloucester, by w. Sarah had Nathaniel, b. 29 Dec. 1677; and Abraham, 5 Nov. 1680. JOHN, Falmouth, sold 1655, to Isaac Walker of Boston, that isl. call. Long Isl. in Casco Bay. THOMAS, Lynn 1635, one of the purch. 1640, of Southampton, L. I. may be the freem. of 22. May 1639, giv. on rec. Say or Says; and also may be f. of one or more of the first nam. sett. at S. Conject. is unsatisfact. when Shurtleff and Paige differ in spell. of the names, and confid. is still less indulg. as to the surname of two syl. when ano. THOMAS is found in the will of Stephen Lincoln, at Hingham, 1658. See Geneal. Reg. IX. 38.
SAYLE, or SAYLES, JOHN, Providence 1645, in list of freem. 1655, next yr. town clk. by w. Mary had Mary, b. July 1652; and John, 17 Aug. 1654; and prob. others; in May 1666, sw. alleg. to Charles II. JOHN, Providence, s. prob. of the preced. took the o. of alleg. May 1682, m. Elizabeth Comstock, perhaps d. of the first Daniel, had Mary, b. 30 May 1689; John, 10 Jan. 1692; Richard, 24 Oct. 1695; Daniel, 13 Dec. 1697; and Thomas, 9 Feb. 1699; and d. 2 Nov. foll. WILLIAM, Boston, a trans. visit. in 1646, wh. had been Gov. at Bermuda, was so happy as to attend Cotton's lecture on Thursday, 5 Nov. in that yr. and soon aft. sail. for London. Out of incid. in that Thursday lecture advert. to, sprang two tracts of antagonist spirit, "N. E.'s Jonas cast up at London," by Dr. Child, and "N. E.'s Salamander," by Edward Winslow, and this latter appeal. to Gov. Seyle as witness against the story told by c. Five yrs. later he was sent by the Eng. governm. to plant at Eleutheria, one of the Bahamas, as is told by Winthrop II. 334, and I presume the same gent. was, in 1670, Gov. in Carolina, under royal commiss. of 26 July 1669, where prob. he d. 1671.
SAYWARD, or SAYWORD, EDMUND, Ipswich 1635. HENRY, Hampton 1646, Portsmouth 1650, soon aft. at York, there was constable 1664, perhaps had s. John, and Samuel, wh. there took o. of alleg. 1681, and long perpet. the name. He d. 1679, and his wid. Mary had admin. RICHARD, New Hampsh. 1662.
SAYWELL, DAVID, Boston, perhaps s. of Robert, m. 15 Aug. 1660, Abigail, d. of Thomas Buttolph; was freem. 1666, and d. 1672. His wid. m. next yr. Thomas Bingley. ROBERT, Boston, came in the Blessing, 1635, aged 30, with Susan, prob. his w. 25, and James, prob. their s. 1 and 1/2 yrs. had Elizabeth wh. m. 7 May 1662, Joseph Davis.
SCADDING, WILLIAM, Taunton 1638. Baylies, I. 289.
SCADLOCK, WILLIAM, Saco 1636, freem. 1653, of gr. jury 1654, and 1660, had William, Susanna, John, Rebecca, Samuel, and Sarah. He d. 1662, in his will of 7 Jan. nam. w. Elinor, and these six ch. Samuel [[vol. 4, p. 34]] was liv. 1719, aged 73; but John d. 1664; and William d. four yrs. aft. his f. hav. lost a s. William, it is said of lawful age, the yr. preced. but this seems rather strange. The name is Chaddock, in Folsom, wh. perhaps, foll. Sullivan in Hist. 218 and 19.
SCALES, JOHN, Rowley 1648. MATTHEW, k. by the Ind. at Hatfield, 25 Aug. 1675, may not have been an inhab. but a soldier from the E. WILLIAM, Rowley, freem. 13 May 1640.
SCAMMON, SCAMMAN, or SCAMMOND, HUMPHRE, Kittery, or Saco, perhaps both, m. Elizabeth d. of the first Dominicus Jordan, had Humphrey, b. 10 May 1677; Elizabeth; Mary; Rebecca; and Samuel. JOHN, Kittery, perhaps s. of William, certain. br. of Humphrey and of Richard, as also of Elizabeth w. of Peter Lidgett, had Elizabeth but wh. was his w. the diligence of Quint has not discov. RICHARD, Dover, br. of the preced. perhaps s. of William, m. Prudence, only d. of William Waldron, had Richard; William, b. 29 Feb. 1664; Jane, 21 June or July 1667; Prudence, 29 Aug. 1669; Elizabeth 22 Apr. 1671; and Mary, 31 May 1673. He escap. the Ind. war by liv. at Exeter 1677; and both h. and w. were there 21 Apr. 1691. Jane m. Thomas Deane of Boston, and d. 9 Oct. 1726. WILLIAM, Boston 1640, prob. rem. soon, may have been ancest. of the disting. fam. but nothing can be ascertain.
SCAMP, ROBERT, Gloucester, m. 25 Dec. 1661, Joan, d. of John Collins, had Mary, b. 25 Nov. foll. and his w. d. next 9 Nov. and he d. 23 Apr. 1691. I suggest, that possib. this name may have been Stamp, for in old rec. t and c are much alike.
SCANT, WILLIAM, Braintree, m. 29 Mar. 1654, Sarah Brown, had William, b. 16 Mar. foll.; Thomas, 11 Apr. 1657; Sarah, 5 Sept. 1660; Joseph, 4 June 1662, d. at 2 yrs.; Susanna, 30 Jan. 1664; and ano. d. 27 May 1665, with a strange or undecypher. name; and he d. Sept. 1684. His will, of 8 Aug. pro. 30 Oct. names w. and refers to ch. without nam. them.
SCARBOROUGH, or SCARBARROW, JOHN, Roxbury 1639, freem. 13 May 1640, unless the Col. rec. of Shurtleff, I. 377, justify an earlier date of four days, wh. must seem very improb. for the regular day of open. Gen. Ct. was 13, and, of course, the 9th was Saturday; by w. Mary, prob. sis. of Robert Smith of Boston, had John, b. 10, bapt. 24 July 1642, d. next mo.; Hannah, 3 Dec. 1643, bapt. same day; Samuel, 20 Jan. bapt. 1 Feb. 1646; and was k. 9 June foll. by casualty in charg. a gr. gun. His wid. m. 1 Oct. 1647, Philip Torrey.
SAMUEL, Roxbury, s. of the preced. by first w. wh. d. 1679, had prob. no ch. but by w. Bethia had. prob. Samuel, b. 1681, wh. d. of smallpox, 2 Nov. 1721; Joseph, Feb. 1688, Jeremiah, 31 July 1685, wh. d. in few wks.; Deborah, 16 July 1687, wh. d. at six yrs.; and he d. 18 Mar. 1715. His w. d. 10 Sept. 1728, aged 75. [[vol. 4, p. 35]]
SCARLET, BENJAMIN, Salem 1633, s. prob. of Mary, wh. bound him apprent. that yr. aged only 11 yrs. to capt. Endicott, and he contin. the Gov's man 1651, and was liv. 1678. A wid. Scarlet, early memb. of Salem ch. in her will of 2 Mar. 1640, pro. June 1643, nam. Joseph Grafton excor. calls him br. as also James Lind, and br. Browning, and his w. and sis. Dennis. All these, I think, refer to Christian soc. but she ment. her own ch. Mary, Margaret, and Joseph; and when she nam. br. Samuel in Eng. she means, I suppose, kinsm. and may have been f. of this apprent. Yet, as to the fam. of the testator, I see no more light. JOHN, Sringfield 1640, was then constable, rem. to Boston 1650, by w. Thomasine had Mary and Jane, tw. b. 21 Sept. 1653; perhaps John, 1657, wh. d. young; Thomasine, 18 May 1660; John and Samuel, tw. 16 Apr. 1664; and Elizabeth 18 Nov. 1667; and by Farmer, in MS.geneal. was, I think, mistak. for his br. Samuel. His will, of 16 Feb. 1688, pro. 21 Mar. foll. gives to his w. to d. Thomasine Taylor, and to gr.s. James Fryer; so that my conject. is, that ano. of his ds. had m. James, only s. of Hon. Nathaniel F. ROBERT, Salem 1635, perhaps br. of Benjamin, was that yr. sentenc. to be whip. for run. from his master. SAMUEL, Boston 1664, br. of John, master of a sh. from London to B. with his w. join. Mather's ch. 1672, was freem. and constable 1673, and was mort. inj. by explos. of a sh. in the harbor, 4 May 1675, dy. in a few hours. He was b. in Kersey, Co. Suffk. he says in his will, made that day, pro. 26 May foll. by wh. he dispos. of good amt. of prop. but left no ch.
SCATE, JOHN, Boston, by w. Sarah had John, b. 14 Apr. 1659.
SCATHE, JOHN, Hingham, with Ann, perhaps a sis. are ment. in the wills of John Merrick and of his wid. Elizabeth 1647 and 9. prob. they were serv. but he was in Boston, prob. 1674, a cordwainer, and in 1678 sold lds. at H. to William Hersey, writ. his name John Skeath.
SCHRICK, PAULUS, Hartford, one of the little colo. of Dutch from New York, that had plant. bef. the Eng. went thither. He m. 30 Dec. 1658, Mary, wid. of Josephus Ambeck, d. of Caspar Varleet; but no issue is ment.
SCILIAN, BENJAMIN, and JOSEPH, unless surname be mistak. as I suspect, were of Ipswich 1683.
