SCOFIELD, SCOVIL, SCOVEL, SCHOFEL, or SKOFIELD, ARTHUR, Middletown, a propr. 1671, by w. Rachel m. 17 Dec. 1690, at Lyme, had Arthur, b. 13 Jan. 1692; and James, 9 Jan. 1694, wh. d. in few wks. and the f. d. 24 June foll. ARTHUR, Middletown, s. of the preced. by w. Elizabeth m. Feb. 1711, had James, b. 18 Jan. 1712; and Elizabeth 26 July 1715. BENJAMIN, Haddam, perhaps s. of John, by w. Ann had Edward, b. 9 Apr. 1704; Sarah, 9 Oct. 1706; and Amie, 14 Mar. 1709.


[[vol. 4, p. 36]] DANIEL, Stamford 1641, one of the first sett. d. 1671, leav. ch. Daniel, John, Richard, Joseph, Sarah, w. of John Pettit; and Mary or Mercy. His wid. Sarah bec. third w. of Miles Merwin, and is nam. in his will. His two eldest s. liv. many yrs. at Stamford, and left num. progeny; but their br. Joseph d. 1676, in serv. or by the hardships of Philip's war, leav. no fam. yet some est. to brs. and sis. EDWARD, Haddam, m. Hannah, d. prob. youngest, of Andrew Benton of Hartford, d. 1703, leav. wid. and two ds. but I miss any early date. JOHN, Farmington, m. 29 Mar. 1666, Sarah Barnes, d. of Thomas, rem. to Waterbury, next to Haddam, there d. 1712, had John, William, and Benjamin. 

JOHN, Middletown, m. 9 Feb. 1698, Mary Lucas, d. prob. of William, had Joanna, John, Mary, Elizabeth William, and Ebenezer, and d. 12 Dec. 1712. RICHARD, Ipswich 1648, came in the Susan and Ellen, aged 22, from London, may have been of Stamford 1650, and d. 1671, and the same, whose wid. m. Robert Penoyer. He was prob. f. Richard, propound. for freem. 1670, a trader at S. 1689-1701; and, perhaps, other ch. Great vexation has attend. my desire to avoid confus. of families under such various spell. and it would not be easy for a congress of those with so hard a name, in our days, to make out the derivat. of the mem.

SCOLLEY, or SCHOLLEY, JOHN, Malden 1674, then 33 yrs. old, had liv. at Charlestown, m. Hannah, d. of James Barrett, had John, b. 20 June 1665; Hannah, 3 Apr. 1669; James, Oct. 1671; Mary, Feb. 1675; and Sarah, wh. m. 16 Nov. 1699, Jonathan Eustis.

SCOON, or SCONE, JOHN, Westfield, m. Sarah, d. of Edmund Hart, had William, b. 15 Nov. 1676; Sarah,` 7 Mar. 1678; Elizabeth 14 June 1680; and Joseph, 16 Apr. 1683; and d. 19 Aug. 1684.

SCOTCHFORD, JOHN, Concord, was town clk. m. Susanna, perhaps d. of George Meriam, had no ch. says Shattuck, and d. 10 June 1696. His wid. d. 2 Feb. 1707.

SCOTT, BENJAMIN, Braintree, had, perhaps b. in Eng. Hannah, wh. m. Christopher Webb; John, b. 25 Dec. 1640, d. soon; rem. to Cambridge, there, by w. Margaret, had Joseph, 14 July 1644; Benjamin, 5 July 1646; John, again, 2 July 1648; Elizabeth 27 May 1650, wh d. in one wk.; rem. to Rowley bef. 1652, there had Samuel, 1655, and two ds.; was freem. 1665, and d. 1671. Of ano. BENJAMIN of Braintree, we kn. only, that his will of 7 Oct. 1683, pro. 29 Apr. foll. refers to no w. or ch. but gives all his est. to br. Peter until the eldest s. of Peter come of age. 

BENJAMIN, Rowley, s. of the first Benjamin, m. Susanna Searle, had John, b. 1681; Joseph, 1682; Benjamin, 1687; Samuel, 1692. EDMUND, Farmington 1649, by first w. had seven ch. was freem. 1669, had two more ch. by sec. w. Elizabeth wid. of Thomas Upson, but the date of ms. or bs. for neither is told. From his will of 11 June [[vol. 4, p. 37]] 1690, we gain the names of all, Edmund; Samuel, b. 1660; Jonathan; George; David; Robert; Joseph; Elizabeth Davis; and Hannah, w. of John Brunson; yet we shall not be justif. in suppos. this to be the order of success. exc. that the two s. last nam. were by sec. w. nor will conject. be reasona. to determine the priority of the d. whose h.'s name is not seen. Positive informat. however, is afford. on two points, that he was an orig. propr. of Waterbury, and there d. 1691. EDMUND, Waterbury, s. of the preced. m. June 1689, the wid. of Benjamin Porter, who d. 17 Jan. 1749, had a s. b. Oct. 1690, wh. d. in few wks.; Sarah, 29 Jan. 1692; Samuel, Sept. 1694; Elizabeth 1 Mar. 1697; Hannah, June 1700; Edmund, 10 May 1703; John, 21 Sept. 1707; and Jonathan, 4 Aug. 1711; and d. 20 July 1746. 

EDWARD, ask. for gr. at New London 1651, yet did not impr. it, when giv. not however tempt. towards Hadley, where he first is heard of as serv. of Joseph Kellogg 1662, and where was ano. EDWARD, wh. was he prob. that m. 1670, Elizabeth Webster, perhaps d. of Gov. John, had Elizabeth b. 1671; Sarah, 1674; Thomas, 1675; John, 1677; Ebenezer, 1681; Bridget and Ann, tw. 1682; and Hannah, 14 Mar. 1689. His w. d. two days aft. aged 40; and he rem. perhaps to New Haven, where one Edward was excus. in 1703 from train. in the milit. so leav. us to infer, that he was over 60 yrs. of age. GEORGE, New Haven, a gunsmith, in 1690, had not, nor any other of this surname, been propr. 1685. GEORGE, Waterbury, s. of Edmund, m. Aug. 1691, Mary, d. of Obadiah Richards, had Obadiah, George, and William; and d. 26 Sept. 1724. JOHN, the freem. in Mass. of 22 May 1639, then spelt in Secr.'s list with a k, and JOHN, the freem. of 10 May 1643, aft. many hours of very dilig. scrutiny, elude my skill in search. for the resid. of either; but strong reasons lead me to believe that neither of them was of the three foll. JOHN, Salem, 1648, serv. of Lawrence Southwick, the Quaker, may have gone to Providence, and by w. Rebecca there had Sarah, b. 29 Sept. 1662; John, 14 Mar. 1664; Mary, 1 Feb. 1666; Catharine, 20 May 1668; Deborah, 24 Dec. 1669; and Syvanus, 10 Nov. 1672. He took o. of alleg. to Charles II. in 1668. JOHN, Charlestown 1658, d. 25 Jan. 1682, aged 75, says the gr.st. 

JOHN, Springfield, m. 20 July 1659, Sarah, d. of Thomas Bliss, had Sarah, b. 19 Oct. 1663; John, 4 Jan. 1666, perhaps, but the last fig. is uncert.; Hannah, 16 Oct. 1668; Margaret, 8 Feb. 1671; Ebenezer, 3 Aug. 1673, William, 8 Aug. 1676; Mary, 29 Dec. 1678; rem. to Suffield, there had Elizabeth 2 Sept. 1683; and he d. 2 Jan. 1690. His wid. m. the same yr. Samuel Terry, and d. 27 Sept. 1705. Of the s. William only, one of the first sett. at Palmer, had ch. Sarah m. 9 Feb. 1680, Benjamin Leonard; Hannah m. 31 Oct. 1695, John Fowler; Margaret m. but the name of her h. is not kn.; Mary m. July 1701, Ebenezer Nash; and Elizabeth m. 1708, Jonathan Worthington. [[vol. 4, p. 38]]

JOHN, of Newtown, Southold, or other L. I. town, was very active for the honor of the k. in 1663, but in Apr. or May 1664, was tak. by Conn. officers and carr. to prison at Hartford, heavi. fined, and disfranchis. as a defamer of his majesty, &c., &c. JOHN, Roxbury, m. 29 May 1672, Hannah Duncan, or Dunkin, perhaps d. of Samuel, had Hannah, b. 24 July 1674, d. soon; John, 11 Nov. 1675, d. soon; Sarah, d. soon; Hannah, again, 18 Aug. 1678; Mary, 28 July 1679, d. in two days; Margaret, 6 Jan. 1691, d. soon; Joseph, 27 Mar. 1682; John, again, 8 Nov. 1683, d. soon.; Sarah, 9 Nov. 1684, d. next day; and John, again, 9 July 1686. Perhaps he was of Johnson's comp. in the Narraganset campaign, Dec. 1675. His w. d. 1 Jan. 1706, if the rec. that calls her Sarah, be good. JONATHAN, Waterbury, s. of Edmund, m. Nov. 1694, Hannah, d. of John Hawks of Deerfield, had a d. b. and d. Aug. 1695; Jonathan, 29 Sept. 1696; John, 5 Junen 1699; Martha, 9 July 1701; Gershom, 6 Sept. 1703; Eleazer, 31 Dec. 1705; and Daniel, 20 Sept. 1707. His w. d. 7 Apr. 1744; and he d. 15 May 1745. JOSEPH, Rowley, s. of the first Benjamin, was, perhaps, of Ipswich 1683. JOSEPH, Farmington, s. of Edmund, d. 1708, leav. s. John. PETER, Braintree, br. of the sec. Benjamin, by w. Abigail had Benjamin, b. 24 Sept. 1674; Peter; and John; was freem. 1685. 

RICHARD, Boston, shoemaker, join. our ch. 28 Aug. 1634, yet his w. Catharine, d. of Rev. Edward Marbury (as Bishop, in N. E. Judged tells), did not unite, nor either, of the ch. Richard, John, Mary, or Patience, tho. Ann Hutchinson, their aunt, and her sis. had so great sway in it. To this w. Gov. Winthrop I. 293, ascribes much power in giv. light on believers' bapt. to Roger Williams, 1638, at Providence, where he was rem. 1637, bef. the time of disarm. heretic favorers of Hutchinson. He is on the list of freem. 1655, and was among the Quaker converts 1658, and his w. "an ancient woman," was imprison. and whip. at Boston for benevol. serv. in diffus. her opinions, and her ds. Mary and Patience also were imprison. by equal impolicy. Mary m. 12 Aug. 1660, Christopher Holder; Patience m. 28 Sept. 1668, Henry Beere; and Deliverance, prob. a younger d. m. 30 Aug. 1670, William Richardson. ROBERT, Boston, join. the ch. 15 Dec. 1633, then stil. "serv. to our br. John Sanford," so that he prob. was a passeng. in the fleet with Winthrop 1630, was adm. freem. 7 Dec. 1636, by w. Elizabeth had Nathaniel, bapt. 19 Aug. 1638; Elizabeth b. 10, bapt. 13 Dec. 1640; Mary, 28 Feb. bapt. 5 Mar. 1643; John, bapt. 24 Aug. 1645, d. very soon; Redemption, 2 Mar. 1653; and Ebenezer, posthum. 10 July 1654, wh. d. in few days; and the f. d. in Feb. preced. Mary m. 16 Aug. 1660, Samuel Emmons. ROBERT, Ipswich 1638. 

ROBERT, Charlestown, adm. 1651, to inhab. there, came from Barbados. ROBERT, Hartford, s. of Edmund, prob. d. unm. aft. 1725. ROGER, Lynn 1642. SAMUEL, Farmington, [[vol. 4, p. 39]] s. of Edmund, m. Feb. 1687, Mary, d. of George Orzis, had Martha, b. 7 Dec. foll.; Ebenezer, 10 Aug. 1694; Samuel, 7 Oct. 1696; Mary, 1 Mar. 1700; and Hezekiah, Sept. 1703; and d. 30 June 1745; and his w. d. 28 Nov. 1748; ea. aged 85. THOMAS, Ipswich, came in the Elizabeth from Ipswich 1634, aged 40, with w. Elizabeth 40; and ch. Elizabeth 9; Abigail, 7; and Thomas, 6; was freem. 4 Mar. foll. made his will 8 Mar. 1654, names ea. of these ch. as liv. but that Thomas was at Stamford, and ment. younger ch. Hannah, Sarah, and Mary. In the same ship came Martha, aged 60, prob. mo. of this Thomas, and Richard Kimball, 39, by Scott, in his will, 20 yrs. later, call br. At Boston, Co. Lincoln, in 1630, was one Thomas Scott, that may have been the same as the preced. or the foll. 

THOMAS, Hartford 1637, had been, perhaps, of Cambridge, was k. 6 Nov. 1643, careless. by John Ewe, for wh. he. was. fin. L5. to the Col. and £10. to the wid. Aft. being wound. he made nuncup. will, held good, tho. incomplete, as not nam. overseers, provid. for wid. Ann, s. Thomas, and three ds. That s. was infirm in body, or mind, perhaps both, and liv. not long; and the wid. m. 7 Nov. 1644, Thomas Ford; and d. at Northampton, 5 May 1675. One d. Mary m. at the same time with her mo. Robert Porter; ano. Sarah, m. 5 Dec. 1645, John Staley; and the other, Elizabeth m. 3 or 6 Feb. 1649, John Loomis of Windsor. THOMAS, Stamford, s. of Thomas the first, had m. at Ipswich, Margaret, d. of William Hubbard the first, sis. of the histo. had Thomas, and d. 1657. His wid. m. Ezekiel Rogers. THOMAS is the name of a soldier, k. by the Ind. at Northfield,. 2 Sept. 1675. WILLIAM, Hatfield, m. 1670, Hannah, d. of William Allis, had Josiah, b. 1671; Richard, 1673; William, 1676; Hannah, 1679; Joseph, 1682; John, 1684, d. at 8 yrs.; Mary, 1686; Mehitable, 1687, d. soon; Jonathan, 1688, d. soon; and Abigail, 1689. Num. are descend. Josiah and Joseph cont. at H. but Richard and William were of early sett. in Sunderland.

SCOTTOW, or SCOTTAWAY, JOHN, Boston, s. of Thomas, by w. Rebecca had John, b. 25 June 1668; Rebecca, 27 June 1672, d. young; Joshua, 22 Feb. 1675; Rebecca, again, 1 Mar. 1677, d. soon; and Rebecca, again, 21 June 1678. JOSHUA, Boston, merch. brot. by his mo. Thomasine, a wid. wh. join. our ch. 21 Sept. 1634, and he, with br. Thomas, join. it 19 May 1639; was never sw. freem. yet appoint. by the Gen. Ct. a commissnr. for regulat. the export of powder. By his w. Lydia, wh. join. the ch. 23 May 1641, and d. 9 May 1707, aged 86, had Joshua, b. 30 Sept. 1641, d. very soon; Joshua, again, 12, bapt. 20 Aug. 1643; Lydia, bapt. 29 June 1645, tho. the poor substit. for town rec. says b. 30 of that mo.; Elizabeth 1 Aug. 1647, 2 days old; Rebecca, 10 Oct. 1652; Mary, b. 11, bapt. 18 May 1656; Thomas, 30 [[vol. 4, p. 40]] June, bapt. 10 July 1659, H. C. 1677; and Sarah; was of ar. co. 1645, its ens. 1657, and capt. later. He was confident. agent for La Tour in transact. with our governm. 1654-7, and a great propr. aft. Philip's war at Scarborough, capt. of the garrison and magistr. in that region. He was heedless. or cruel. charg. with murder of Nathan Bedford, 1681, shown to be casual. drown. as in the Maine Hist. Col III. may be read. As author of two very curious tracts a. the early hist. of N. E. publish. 1691 and 4, he is oft. quot. and, at the age of 83, he d. 20 Jan. 1698, as tells the gr.st. that was transfer. from the early bur. yd. to the inside of the tower of the O. S. or 3d ch. See Genealogy, Reg. V. 78. 

His d. Elizabeth m. a. 1664, Thomas Savage; Rebecca m. 1 Apr. 1675, Benjamin Blackman; and Mary m. capt. Samuel Checkley, as by his will of 23 June 1696, pro. 3 Mar. 1698, is seen; beside wh. it gives adeq. provis. to w. Lydia, to s. Thomas a doub. portion, rings to ds. Mary Checkley and Sarah, w. of Samuel Walker, and to ea. of sixteen gr.ch. then liv. and made Judge Sewall and s. Savage and Checkley excors. His eldest d. Lydia, wh. first m. Benjamin Gibbs, and next m. 1678, Anthony Checkley, the atty.-gen. that d. 18 Oct. 1708, had, no doubt, been long bef. set out with her full sh. and for third h. she took, 6 Mar. 1712, William Colman, f. of the disting. Benjamin Colman, then min. of Brattle st. ch. D. D. 

JOSHUA, prob. s. of the first Thomas, m. 25 May 1697, Sarah, eldest d. of the sec. Zechariah Symmes; but where he liv. when he d. or any further acco. of him, is beyond. my power to tell. THOMAS, Boston, br. perhaps elder, of the first Joshua, a joiner, by w. Joan, wh. was adm. of the ch. 19 Sept. 1641, had Thomas, b. says the stupid town rec. Jan. 1640, when the ch. rec. shows bapt. 8 Dec. preced. wh. d. soon; Thomas, again, bapt. 10 Apr. 1641, one day old, tho. town rec. gives b. in Mar.; John, 2, bapt. 5 May 1644; Thomas, again, 3, bapt. 7 Mar. 1647; and Mehitable, bapt. 11 Feb. 1649; and by sec. w. Sarah had Joshua, 3, bapt. 9 Dec. 1655; Sarah, 27 Sept. bapt. 4 Oct. 1657; Thomasin, 14, bapt. 15 Aug. 1659, d. soon; and Thomasin, again, 18 Aug. 1660. His will, of 9 May 1660, pro. 18 Dec. 1661, names aged mo. Sanford (tho. wh. she was is beyond my conject.), w. Sarah, s. John, and other ch. without naming. THOMAS, Scarborough, s. of Joshua the first, sw. alleg. 1681.

SCOVIL, SCOVALL, SCOVEL, or SCOVELL, JOHN, Waterbury, s. of that John, under Scofield, 4 pages bef. m. 6 Feb. 1694, Hannah, d. of Obadiah Richards, had John, b. 12 Jan. foll. perhaps others; was constable, and rep. 1714. His w. d. 5 Mar. 1720; and he d. 26 Feb. 1727. WILLIAM, Haddam, sett. there soon aft. 1668, says Field, 65, to wh. Hinman, 231, adds, that he d. 1712. That may refer to first John. See Scofield, with wh. name I have been much embarrass. to disting. one from ano. and can but fear, that little success has foll. my perplexity. [[vol. 4, p. 41]]

SCRANTON, DENNIS, New Haven 1660, m. Sarah, wid of Nicholas Munger, gave informat. perhaps rather minute, than trustworthy, about Whalley and Goffe, to Gov. Endicott's pursuivants in 1661. See Hutch. Coll. 335 for the curious codum. But they mistook the name, and should have writ. Crampton. JOHN, Guilford 1650, whose w. Joanna d. 1651, is among freem. of 1669. For sec. w. he took Adeline, wid. in 1663 of Robert Hill, as in 1661 she had been of Robert Johnson; but prob. had no ch. by her, and d. 27 Aug. 1671, leav. ch. Thomas, John, and Sarah; and his wid. d. 1685. Sarah m. 15 May 1665, John Bushnell. JOHN, Guilford, s. of the preced. m. Mary Seward, d. prob. of William of the same, had Mary, John, and Mehitable, was propound. for freem. 1670; and by sec. w. Elizabeth Clark, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Mercy, b. 1688; Elizabeth 4 Nov. 1692; Ann, 23 Dec. 1693; Ebenezer, 16 Mar. 1696; and Deborah, 3 Dec. 1697. John d. young; but other seven ch. were liv. 1703, at d. of the f. NATHANIEL, Guilford, may have been s. of Thomas of the same, and d. at Wethersfield, 13 Mar. 1693, in his will giv. prop. to William Goodrich, as Hinman, 232, tells; yet it is more prob. that there was no such Nataniel S. and that the testator's name was Crampton. THOMAS, Guilford, s. of the first John, was propos. for freem. 1676, and next yr. accept.; had two ws. first, Deborah Thompson, wid. of Ebenezer, and sec. Elizabeth Goodrich; but had only two ch. that grew up to mature life, Samuel, and Hannah.

SCRIBNER, or SCRIVENER, BENJAMIN, Norwalk, m. 5 Mar. 1680, Hannah, d. of John Crampton, had Thomas, b. 31 Mar. 1681; and John; perhaps others. JOHN, Exeter 1689. JOHN, Norwalk, s. of Benjamin, m. 9 Mar. 1710, Deborah, d. of William Lees of the same, had Mary, b. Mar. 1711; and Rebecca, 12 Oct. 1712.

SCRIPTURE, SAMUEL, Groton, by w. Elizabeth had Samuel, b. 4 Oc. 1675; Mary, 7 Feb. 1681; Abigail, 28 Jan. 1687; Ruth, 2 Feb. 1697; and Lydia, 28 June 1700. SAMUEL, Groton, s. of the preced. by w. Mary had Sarah, b. 16 Dec. 1700; Jemima, 19 Apr. 1702, wh. d. at 21 yrs.; Samuel, 25 Apr. 1705, d. at 18 yrs.; and James, wh. d. 28 Sept. 1723. His w d. 3 days bef. and by sec. w. Elizabeth he had Samuel, again; 27 Apr. 1727.

SCRIVEN, SCREVEN, SCRIEVEN, or SCRIVINE, JOHN, Dover 1662, d. 2 Oct. 1675, says Quint, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 65, tho. in the same l. he makes his will of 24 Nov. 1674, pro. 27 June foll. that date of its mak. not of his d. Some error, wh. is seldom found in so careful a writer must here demand correct. It ment. w. Mary, and ch. John, Edward, Thomas, and Elizabeth all minors. The d. perhaps m. 1686, Samuel Eastman. WILLIAM, Kittery, had w. Bridget in 1680, was rep. 1681, [[vol. 4, p. 42]] found. of a Bapt. ch. there 1682, in wh. he was a teacher, but aft. some yrs. went to South Carolina, and d. 1713, aged, as is said, 84.

SCROOP, ADRIAN, Hartford, witness to execut. of a deed of 31 Mar. 1665, and, again, 8 May 1667 sign. as witness, his name, in a very elegant hand, to deed of Simon Wolcott to Richard Loud of three parcels of ld. wh. was put on rec. 3 days aft. yet no more is ever told of him. Curiosity to a high pitch naturally is felt on two points in this case, when did he come to our country, and what did he do aft. sign. that rare name. One Adrian Scrope, we kn. had been execut. in London, 17 Oct. 1660, for hav. sat on the pretend. trial of k. Charles I. and sign. the warrant for his d. In Noble's Regicides the rep. of his trial is very full, much more than most of the others. Strong prob. from union of such giv. name and surname arises, that this man was s. or near relat. of the regicide; and Dr. Stiles, in the latter part of his extraord. book relative to the three judges, that found shelter at New Haven, appeals to proof from hd. writ. in the fac-simile of the death warrant of Charles and the rec. of this deed at Hartford, for, strange as it seems, the attestation of the deed is by the witnesses on the rec. itself as well as on the docum. 

The Doctor's eye saw more than mine, and he appears almost satisf. with the identity of the writing, as if Col. Scrope were in person at H. six yrs. and a half aft. his head was cut off. Between 29 Jan. 1649, when he affix. his hd. and seal to that writ, order. the subord. officer. at such an hour next day to put the k. to d. and this Hartford act 8 Mar. 1667, I would not affirm, that Col. Scrope's writing could not vary much, had not the solemn execution of the 17 Oct. 1660 interven. Stiles was a man of wonderful capacity of belief, and the estimate of his judgment in this matter is reduced by a mistake of the name of the other witness in this very docum. writ. Reeve, but by the President made Robert Pierce. Beside, the differece of names between the London sufferer, wh. used but one o, and our Hartford witness that doubled the letter, is not ment.

SCRUGGS, THOMAS, Salem, came with the few companions of Endicott in the Abigail, 1628, says Felt, yet this relies solely on tradit. and might seem to early, for he did not take o. of freem until 2 Sept 1635; but he was esteem. eno. to be chos. to three Gen. Cts. next yr. also authoriz. with others to hold special Ct. for the vicinage, and was a selectman. But for his heretic. pravity he was next yr. supersed. and in Nov. disarm. as a danger. man, like the majority of Boston ch. I suppose he had w. Margery, and that he d. early in 1652; and that Felt mistook his name as if it were William; and that, as the wid. gave up to her s.-in-law John Raymond in June 1652 her est. in dower, she may have gone home, or perhaps was the woman that d. 26 Jan. 1663.

Elizabeth was indict. 1663 for "familiarity with Satan," and practis. witchcr. but tho. the jury found her in Mar. guilty of the familiarity, the wiser Ct. set her free in May 1666, "the verdict of the jury not answer. to the indictm. legally." Aft. this prob. the fam. rem. to R. I. where, I presume, the devil had less power or impudence. To Elizabeth S. in his will of 25 July 1655, John Moody of Hartford gave L25., and it may be suppos. therefore, that the mo. of this ch. was his sis. The time of his d. is unkn.
