SIGOURNEY, SIGOURNAY, SEGOURNE, or SIGOURNIE, ANDREW, Boston, came prob. in 1686, from devotion to the cause of relig. truth, as one of the noble Huguenot confessors, bring. s. Andrew, d. Susanna, perhaps other ch. Their first settlem. was at Oxford, whence aft. 7 or 8 yrs. with most of the other French emigr. he came to B. but aft. the peril of Ind. invasion pass. away shortly, once more he tried the country resid. I think prob. for few yrs. but d. at B. 16 Apr. 1727, aged 88, acc. gr.st. Susanna m. John Johnson, wh. with three ch. was k. by the Ind. 1696, at Oxford, and she m. 8 Apr. 1700, her cous. Daniel Johonnot of Boston. ANDREW, Boston, s. of the preced. brot. from France, in youth, by his f. m. Mary Germaine, also a native of France, had Andrew, b. 30 Jan. 1702; Susanna, 27 Dec. 1704 Peter, 1 Mar. 1707, not 6, as the fam. geneal. gives it; Mary, 1 Aug. 1709; Charles, 27 Apr. 1711, wh. d. unm. at 40 yrs.; Anthony, 17 Aug. 1713; Daniel, [[vol. 4, p. 95]] 17 Nov. 1715; Rachel, 5 Mar. 1718, d. next yr.; Hannah, 27 Feb; 1719; but of the place of b. assign. by fam. geneal. for the first nam. five or six I entertain strong doubt. The print. vol. prepar. with exempla. devot. makes them all to be b. at Boston, but a fair infer. is against it, as no rec. is found bef. 1714, and then the whole six are brot. into our town rec. He made his will 20 May 1736, but it was not pro. bef. 7 July 1748, soon aft. his d. and his wid. d. 20 Mar. 1763 or 4, the uncertain. of fam. geneal. rais. a suspicion that the author had confus. old and new style so many yrs. aft. d. of "Mr. Old Style." Susanna m. 24 Oct. 1726, Martin Brimmer; Mary m. 20 Feb. 1734, John Baker; and Hannah m. 23 June 1748, Samuel Dexter, the celebr. patriot.

He d. 15 Sept. foll. and his wid. in her widowhood, 13 May 1740. RICHARD, Springfield, freem. 13 May 1640, when, I suppose, by the names above and below his in the list, he was of Dorchester, next yr. rem. to S. there by w.

SILL, SYLL, or SCILL, JOHN, Cambridge 1637, brot. from Eng. says the fam. tradit. w. Joanna, ch. Elizabeth and Joseph; was freem. 2 May 1638, perhaps had other ch. but d. prob. bef. 1653. His wid. had gr. of ld. 1662; but of her d. the exact date is unkn. yet her will was pro. in Oct. 1671. Elizabeth m. 28 Oct. 1652, Zechariah Hicks, and d. 12 Sept. 1730. JOSEPH, Cambridge, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. came with his f. in inf. m. 5 Dec. 1660, Jemima, d. of Andrew Belcher the first of the same, wh. d. a. 1675, had sev. ch. of wh. I kn. only Andrew, b. 5 Feb. 1665, that d. soon; Joseph, bapt. 11 Mar. 1666; and Jemima b. 21 Sept. as the town rec. proves to Mr. Paige's is fact. tho. the ch. reg. says, bapt. 31 Mar. 1667; and Elizabeth b. 12 Sept. 1668; and the rec. of b. has no others. But others there were, as the fam. tradit. makes two s. lost at sea; and fully confirm. is it by the fact, that aft. the d. of w. in the begin. of Philip's war, and aft. m. of sec. w. he made deed of trust, 7 Nov. 1681, to Andrew Belcher, their uncle, in favor of his s. Andrew, and Thomas. He was much disting. for serv. in that war, espec. at Groton, where he had com. and at Dover, wid. with Hawthorne in the surpr. of the Ind. at maj. Waldron's. On the close of it, rem. to Lyme, there m. 12 Feb. 1677 or 8, Sarah, d. of George Clark, wid. of Reynold Marvin, and [[vol. 4, p. 97]] had Joseph, b. 6 Jan. 1678 or 9; and Zechariah, 1 Jan. 1682; and, perhaps, others, but d. 6 Aug. 1696, in 60th yr. Jemima, m. 2 Dec. 1687, John Hall; of Medford; and Elizabeth m. 18 Nov. 1685, Samuel Green, jr. of Boston. In Milford a Joseph is nam. 1648; but I think it may be a mistake for 1673. 

JOSEPH, Lyme, s. of the preced. m. Phebe, d. of Richard Lord, had Lucy, b. Feb. 1706; Elizabeth 20 Nov. 1707; John, 14 Feb. 1710; Phebe, 10 Feb. 1713; Joseph, 25 Apr. 1715; Thomas, 25 Aug. 1717; Lucy, again, 1 Dec. 1719; Jabez and Richard, tw. 4 Aug. 1722; Elijah, 8 Nov. 1724; Sarah, 2 Jan. 1728; and Elisha, 6 Apr. 1730; and d. 10 Nov. 1765. His wid. d. 4 Jan. 1774, aged 86. ZECHARIAH, Lyme, br. of the preced. m. Elizabeth d. of Richard Mather of the same, had Andrew; Zechariah, b. 1717; David; Sarah; Elizabeth and Joanna; but dates are unkn. of the b. of most of his ch. or of d. of hims. or w. Eight of this name had, in 1852, been gr. at Yale.

SILLIIAM, DANIEL, Fairfield, 1658, had, it is said, for first w. Peaceable, wid. of John Egleton, (wh. d. 1659); and tho. she d. bef. 5 July 1661, yet tradit. tells that there were no ch. of the sec. m. with Hannah, wid. of Hendrick Hendrickson. His ch. Daniel, Thomas, and Robert, were all Peaceable's; and he d. 1690, it is thot. bec. admin. of his est. was grant. 13 Jan. 1691. DANIEL, Fairfield s. of the preced. by w. Abigail had Daniel, Peacable, Abigail, John, Jemima, and Mary; but no dates of b. can be found; and he d. 1697. ROBERT, Fairfield, s. of the first Daniel, had by Sarah, d. of Cornelius Hull, it is said, Nathaniel, b. 20 Aug. 1669; Sarah; Rohert; Martha; Rebecca; and Ebenezer, 1707, Y. C. 1727, whose descend. have confer. gr. honor on the State; and d. 1748. Fam. tradit. makes the first Daniel come from Holland; and the deravat. is quite distinct from the city of Lucca, in Italy, in the early day of the Protestant reformat. thro. Geneva, where had sett. the f. of one Daniel. This Daniel was chos. 1575 into the Council of 200 for that Republic. Sometimes in fam. tradit. there is a basis of truth, however distort.

SILLIS. See Sealis.

SILLIVANT, or SELEVANT, DANIEL, New Haven 1654, had m. bef. 1652, Abigail, only d. of James Cole of Hartford; but we kn. not the date, nor whether she d. early; but one Daniel S. at N. H. m. 17 Oct. 1654, Elizabeth Lamberton, d. of the trad. capt. George L. wh. was lost in a voyage to London, Jan. 1646. Pro. rec. shows that he d. in Virg. 4 June 1655, leav. will, pro. June in that yr. nam. wid.; but there have been doubts, however indistinct, if the name were not the same with the (Daniel Silliman) man's in the former article. We read in the New Haven rec. that William Trowbridge m. 9 Mar. 1657, at Milford, Elizabeth wid. of Daniel Sillevant, d. of George Lamberton. But bef. this m. [[vol. 4, p. 98]] and aft. the d. of Sillevant, his wid. Elizabeth had, Oct. 1655, convey. to John Cole of Hartford the ho. and ld. giv. to her h. and his former w. Abigail, by James Cole, her f. in his will. See Goodwin, Geneal. Notes, p. 48, in note, for the curious testam.

SILSBEE, oft. SILSBY, EPHRIAM, Lynn s. of Henry, by w. Rachel had Henry, b. 15 Nov. 1694. HENRY, Salem 1639, Ipswich 1647, Lynn 1658 had Henry, John; Ephraim, and three ds. beside Samuel. His w. Dorothy d. 27 Sept. 1676, and he m. 18 Nov. 1680, Grace Eaton perhaps wid. of Jonas of Reading. One of the ds. was Hannah, wh. m. 2 Dec. 1680, Thomas Laighton. His will of Mar. 1698, pro. 16 Dec. 1700, names three s. three gr. s., John March, Henry Collins, John Laighton, beside gr. d. Mary S. JOHN, Salem, prob. s. of the preced. m. 16 Feb. 1674, Bethia Pitman, had only ch. John, b. 7 Feb. foll. and d. early, his inv. being of 26 June 1676. JONATHAN, Lynn, s. of Henry, m. 1 Jan. 1674 Bethia March, had Sarah, b. 5 Dec. foll.; a ch. 16 Feb. 1677, d. same day; Jonathan, 16 Mar. 1678; and Bethia 12 Apr. 1680, d. at one yr.; Elizabeth 2 Aug. 1685; and Hannah, 3 Oct. 1687; was freem. 1684. NATHANIEL, Salem, br. of the preced. m. 5 Nov. 1671, Deborah Tompkins, had Henry, b. 12 Apr. 1674; Nathaniel, 11 Apr. 1676, d. in few days; Nathaniel, again, 23 Oct. 1677; Samuel, 30 Jan. 1679; John, 20 Mar. 1682; and Margaret, 20 Mar. 1684. 

SAMUEL, Lynn, s. of Henry, m. 4 July 1676, Mary Biscoe, had Mary, b. 20 June 1677; and he was bur. 18 Oct. 1687. Six of this name, says Farmer, had gr. at Harv. in 1834, and one at Dart.

SILVER, SAMUEL, Rowley, 1691, s. of Thomas the first, had then a fam. THOMAS, Newbury, had first been of Ipswich 1637, by first w. had Mary, b. 1645; and by sec. w. Catharine, m. 18 Aug. 1649, had Elizabeth and Martha, tw. b. 14 Mar. 1651; Thomas, 26 Mar. 1653, d. at 3 yrs.

Mary, it is said, m. a Robinson; Martha m. 20 Dec. 1669, Francis Willet; Sarah m. 9 Feb. 1672, Thomas Alley; and Hannah m. 13 Mar. 1677, Henry Akers. THOMAS, Newbury, not s. of the preced. but call. jr. was b. Coffin says, 1652, but not in N. of course, or he would have nam. his f.; m. 4 Jan. 1682, Mary Williams, had Sarah, b. 2 Oct. 1682. He d. 1695, and his wid. m. Simon Wainwright of Haverhill.

SILVERWOOD, JOSHUA, may be only a nickname, borne on the roll, however, of Mosely's comp. Dec. 1675.

SILVESTER, or more, properly, SYLVESTER, BENJAMIN, Scituate, youngest of eleeven ch. of Richard, m. 1684, Lydia Standlake. CONSTANT, a merch. from London, at Barbados 1657, may never have been in N. E. yet as he and his br. Natbaniel, with two others purchas. 9 [[vol. 4, p. 99]] June 1651, of Stephen Goodyear, grantee of the Earl of Stirling, the gr. est. of Shelter Isl. in the Sound, on our cost, it should be presum. that he knew what he was buying, and his will in Doctor's Commons, 1671, proves that he contin. to value it. Thompson's Hist. of L. I. 234, shows how the right of Constant was confiscat. and sold to his br. Nathaniel, by the Dutch. Gov. 1674, as, also, how the Gov. compel. payment. Desend. are very num. either of him, or his br. or both. GILES, Boston, perhaps s. of Nathaniel, m. Hannah, d. of the first Thomas Savage, wid. of Benjamin Gillam, in Sept. 1685; but I have no further acco. of him. Perhaps he dwelt on Shelter Isl. the manorial est. of his f. ISREAL, Scituate, br. of Benjamin, had Israel, b. 28 Sept. 1675; Silence, 1677; Richard, 1679; Lois, 1680; Martha, 1682; Mary, 1683; Elisha, 168; Peter, 1687; Zebulon, 1689; Barshua, 1692; and Deborah, 1696. 

JOHN, Scituate, eldest br. of the preced. had Sarah, b. 1671; John, 1672; Joseph, 1674; Samuel, 1676; and Lydia, 1679; was rep. 1689. Joseph, Situate, third s. of Richard of the same, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 11 Nov. 1664; Mary, 24 Dec. 1666; Naomi, Mar. 1668; Ann, 5 May 1669; and possib. by sec. w. Benjamin, 11 Dec. 1680; David, 20 Apr. 1683; and Amos 15 Nov. 1685; was a brave soldier, capt. under Col. Church in his expedit. 1689 in Maine, in the disastrous one of Sir William Phips, next yr. against Quebec. In that serv. with very many others of the best spirit of N. E. he d. leav. nuncup. will, pro. by three of his soldiers. His liv. s. were Joseph, Benjamin, Amos, and David. NATHANIEL, Shelter Isl. on E. end of L. I. 1659, wh. with his br. Constant he purch. 9 June 1651, from Stephen Goodyear, was h. of Grizzle, d. of Thomas Brinley of Datchett, in Co. Bucks, the parish well kn. to be the million readers of Shakesspeare's Merry Wives of Windsor, one of the gr. fam. lords param. of that est. as the Gardiners were of Gardiner's, and the Winthrops of Fisher's isl. in the early days; d. 1680. He had, beside d. Grizzle, five s. Giles, Nathaniel, Constant, Peter, Benjamin, of wh. are many descend. Griselda m. James Lloyd of Boston, as his first w. There is no slight reason to believe this Nathaniel to be of the celebr. poet, Joshua Sylvester, translat. of the divine rhapsodies of Du Bartas, of whose fame, in the age of Elizabeth and James, the puritans were anxious guardians. The relig. bard was aged 54 at his d. 1618. But if the ancestr. honors of literary glory are denied, the more enduring worth of bold serv. in the higher cause of humanity shall be accord. to him wh. gave protect. and shelter to the Shattuck and Southwick fugitives from thee bloody persecut in Mass. under the successive rule of Govs. Endicot and Bellingham whose. zeal for the for honor of God exterminat. all tenderness for their fellow creatures. 

RICHARD, Weymouth, prob. [[vol. 4, p. 100]] came in the fleet with Winthrop desir. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and was sw. 1 Apr. 1634, m. a. 1632, Naomi Torrey, perhaps sis. of William, had Lydia, b. 8 Dec. 1633 John, 14 Mar. 1635; Peter, 1637, d. at 5 yrs. by casulty, as Winthrop II. 77, relates; Joseph, 12 Apr. 1638; Dinah, 2 Apr. 1642. Elizabeth 23 Jan. 1644; Richard 1648; Naomi, 1649; Israel, 1651; Esther, 1653; and Benjamin, 1656. He had trouble with the col. governm. in 1639, about gather. a ch. or sett. a min. and sold his est. next yr. of wh. rec. is on p. 16 of Vol. I. but did not rem. bef. 1642 or 3, then fix. his abode at Scituate, in the freer col. of Plymouth, there d. 1663. His inv. is 24 Sept. and his will names w. and the ten liv ch. His wid. d. Nov. 1668. Lydia m. 4 Sept. 1652 Nathaniel Rawlins; Elizabeth m. 24 Jan. 1659, John Lowell, d. aft. hav. three ch. and Naomi m. 1663, the same John Lowell. RICHARD, Milton 1678, s. of the preced. m. Hannah, d. of James Leonard of Taunton. THOMAS, Watertown, m. Sarah, d. Christopher Grant, and d. 27 Nov. 1696, leav. her alive; but Bond has not furnish. any further acco. nor his usual affluence of dates.

SIMMONS, SYMONS, SIMONES, or SYMONDSON, JOHN, Rowley 1671, Haverhill 1678, then said to be 38 yrs. old, may have intermed. been at Dover a few yrs. unless, as seems more prob. this were an older man, and one sent by capt. Mason very early to his patent at Piscataqua, wh. liv. at Dover, and was a juryman 1673. JOHN, Taunton 1679, had w. Martha, eldest s. John, eldest d. Mary. MICHAEL, Dover 1665, tax. there next yr. MOSES, Plymouth, one of the first comers, arr. in the Fortune 1621, b. at Leyden, and bearing the Dutch name of Symonson or Simonson, but early shorten. his name to the first two syllab.; prob. brot. w. but no ch. is kn. exc. Moses, and Thomas, wh. may both have been b. here. He sett. at Duxbury, was one of the orig. purch. of Dartmouth and props. of Bridgewater, and of Middleborougb, but did not rem. to either. MOSES, Duxbury, s. of the preced. or perhaps his gr.s. for one of the name is ment. wh. may, however, have been s. of Thomas; by w. Sarah had John, Aaron, Mary, Elizabeth and Sarah, wh. all m. and he d. 1689. RICHARD, Salem 1668, m. 1 Aug. 1679, Hannah Wells, had Richard, b. 11 Dec. 1681; d. 19 Mar. foll. and to his wid. admin. of his little prop. was given 27 June 1682. 

SAMUEL, Haverhill 1669, may be the same wh. d. at Lynn, 26 July 1675. SAMUEL, Newbury, casual. k. 18 June 1682. THOMAS, Braintree, sold his ho. and ld. Mar. 1640. THOMAS, Situate 1646, s. of Moses the first, had Moses and Aaron. WILLIAM, Boston, prob. by w. Ann had Hannah, b. a. Aug. 1640, and he d. in short time aft. for his wid. had bec. w. of Abel Porter, and brot. this Hannah to bapt. 30 Apr. 1643, call. 2 yrs. and 8 mos. old, the mo. join. the ch. on Sunday bef. WILLIAM, Woburn 1662, may have been first of Charlestown 1639, but rather may this name be Simonds. WILLIAM, Haverhill 1657. [[vol. 4, p. 101]]

SIMPKINS, NICHOLAS, Boston, a tailor, made the first capt. at the castle, one of his sucees. Rodger Clap says, a. 1634, seems in 1636 to have giv. dissatisfact. by being indebt. to the governm. and rem. 1638. to Yarmouth, aft. some yrs. came again to B. bef. 1649, and was of ar. co. 1650. beside Deborah, wh. m.

Catharine, wh. is made extrix. and marks s. Nicholas for "five shil. and no more, if he come for it;" but for resid. of est. directs equal partit. betw. his ch.

VINCENT, Stamford 1641, m. a d. of Henry Ackerly of the same, had Daniel, John, and, perhaps, other ch. and d. bef. 1671. We kn. of the two s. only that Daniel, in the adjoin. town of Bedford, d. there 1699; and that John, soon aft. d. of his f. sold his est. and rem.

SIMSON, SYMSON, or SIMPSON, ALEXANDER, Boston 1659, Scotchman, call. a brickmaker, was a householder, liv. 1695. FRANCIS, Salem or Marblehead 1648, in Nov. 1659 was worried as a Quaker. HENRY, York, d. bef. 1655. HENRY, York, s. of preced. ens. of the milit. comp. 1680, sw. alleg. 22 Mar. 1681, tak. by the Ind. car. to Canada. JOHN, Watertown, came in the Truelove, 1635, aged 30, by w.

PETER, Milford 1654, as by Lambert is erron: stat. certain. more than twenty yrs. too early; there d. in 1685. He had fam. no doubt, for his home-lot, ho. and barns are fully ment. in 1678. THOMAS, Salisbury, had Mary, b. 2 June 1664.

SINCLAIR, ST. CLAIR, or SINKLER, JAMES and JOHN, Exeter, 1677, [[vol. 4, p. 102]] took o. of alleg. 30 Nov. of that yr. but as John, whose w. was Mary, had been there 16 yrs. at least, the other may be his s.

His w. d. 11 Apr. 1682, and he d. 25 Oct. 1687, in the 102d yr. if the repts. may be accept. 

RICHARD, New London 1686, wh. may have been s. or gr.s. of the preced. d. 16 Oct. 1711, leav. nine ch. some of wh. were in Carolina, but the only kn. names are Richard, William, Waitstill, and beside a d. wh. m. Samuel Latham.

SINNET, SENNOT, or SENNITT, JOHN, Boston, mariner, s. of Walter, appears to own est. from 1667 to 1676. WALTER, Boston, by w. Mary, wh. join. our ch. 23 May 1647, had Mary, b. 19 Nov. 1640; Elizabeth 23 June 1642, d. soon; John, 10 July 1643; and on Sunday aft. the adm. of his w. had bapt.

His eldest d. Elizabeth m. Jeremiah Clark. JAMES, Dartmouth, 1684, was, perhaps, br. of the preced.

SIVERNS, JOHN, Lynn, had John, b. 22 Mar. 1684. Perhaps this may be Severance of Salisbury.

SKATE, JOHN, Weymouth, 1658, is nam. by Farmer; but I find no such name, unless it mean him wh. at Boston had, by w. Sarah, John, and John, again, b. 25 Apr. 1660. See SCATE. It may be the same person as the foll.

SKEATH, JOHN, Boston 1674 liv. long, as from his will of May 1700, pro. 22 Jan. 1708, is clearly discern. It gives to w. Sarah, ds. Sarah Bradshaw, Rebecca Allen, Mary, and Joanna S. beside gr.ch. Joseph, and Hannah, and makes w. and d. Mary excors. See Scathe.
