PHILIP, Hadley, s. of Philip of the same, m. 8 July 1687, Mary, d. of Samuel Bliss of Springfield, had Philip, b. 1 May 1689; David, 23 Apr. 1691; tw. ds. 11 June 1693; and Martha, 27 Sept. 1694; rem. to Springfield, and had Aaron,14 Feb. 1697; Mary, 23 Feb. 1699; Samuel, 1702; and Rebecca; rem. to Hartford, there had Ebenezer, 1 Jan. 1707. His w. d. 23 Dec. foll. and he m. Sept. 1708, Mary Robinson, had Nehemiah, 17 July 1709; and Hannah, 20 Nov. 1711; and d. 26 Jan. 1725. His wid. d. 17 May 1733. RALPH, Plymouth, came, in 1629, with Higinson in the Talbot, for supply of the Pilgrims from Leyden, as their first min. He had been bred at Christ's coll. Cambridge, where he had[[vol. 4, p. 129]] his A. B. 1613, but our Gov. and comp. felt some distrust of his tendency to separat. and his success in various stations seems abundant. to confirm their judgment. He m. perhaps in 1634, Mary, wid. of Richard Masterson, and for a time gave up his office in 1635, when a hope of obtain. Norton was felt, but prob. resum. it, and was active in opposit. to Gorton, 1638; but dismiss. bef. 1645, when he preach. to the small body at Manchester, was of Salem ch. 1647, and perhaps with w. Mary, wh. join. in 1650; but in 1655 was among the early sett. at Eastham, (unless this man was ano. Ralph); but out of office he d. at Boston 1 Mar. 1661, the rec. proves, not 2 as Farmer had been told. Among his many wanderings, he may have found trans. resid. 1657, at New London, and again in 1659. Caulkins, 322.
RALPH, Hingham, from Hingham, Co. Norf. came, it is said by Lincoln, 1633, and sat down at our Hingham 1635; prob. went to Eastham, there, was constable 1660; had Deborah, b. 8 Mar.1654; Samuel, older than her; Thomas; and prob. other ch. His w. Grace with s. Samuel, had admin. of his est. 27 Oct. 1685. Yet in this much doubt is felt, for Roxbury rec. of d. in 1672 has RALPH, aged 95, of wh. more strange is it, that nothing else was ever heard, so that I fear error in this Roxbury rec. tho. he may have been the Hingham man. RICHARD, Taunton 1638, one of the first purch. was from Gloucestersh. may be the man, wh. went to R. I. the next yr. and some yrs. aft. was the promin. man on the main, hav. a large trad. ho. in the Narraranset land, perhaps two, North Kingston and Wickford, purch. of the sachem in 1641, and this, in my opin. led to tak. side against Gorton and his assoc. wh. bot. of other sachems a principality of Showamet, or Warwick, to the Northward of Smith, wh. made Arnold and comp. of Providence cry out against G. and his friends, wh. preach. bad doctrines in the judgment of Mass. people, and thence in the summer came the cruel, if not perfidious, slaughter of Miantinomo, head of both parties of the Ind. and next the relig. war of 1643 against Gortonism.
For his knowledge Smith was employ. with others, in Oct. 1643 "to fetch the cattle from Providence," being the plunder our forces took with the misbelieving prisoners. Comp. Col. Rec. II. 43 with Winthrop II. 84 and 142-8. In that wide estate, aft. a brief trial at Newtown, L. I. he enjoy. gr. esteem forty yrs. as sovereign of all Misquamicuck, Caucumsquissic, and Pettaquamscut, was honor. with a commiss. as chief magistr. from Conn. 1671, as he had support. their rights against the claims of Providence, wh. were favor. by the royal commiss. in 1665. His s. of the same name was made constable there 1663, when the Conn. Counc. dignif. his neighborhood with the town rights of Wickford; but the ultimate decision of the disput. title, in the highest tribunal at home, went contrary to both Mass. and Conn.
RICHARD, Wethersfield 1648, then hav. full grown childr. of wh. Mary m. that yr. Matthias Treat, was involv. in the controv. with his min. [[vol. 4, p. 130]] Russell, that caus. the rem. l6O9, of many of the parish, and founda. (by R. and his friends) of Hadley; but if not d. he was too old to rem. and contin. at W. His s. Richard's name is on the list of freem. 1669, and his d. Esther m. John Strickland; Beriah m. Richard Fox; and Bethia m. 15 Aug. 1684, Joshua Stoddard. Other ch. were Jonathan, wh. he estab. in est. as early as 1662; Samuel; Joseph; and Benjamin. But I ought to add, that these ch. are by Chapin reckon. gr. ch. of the first sett. of 1648, and progeny of his s. Richard. With him I agree, tho. not to receive the result of his testim. in 1684 when he tells of coming from the Vineyard "30 or 40 yrs. ago," yet ment. no f. Perhaps we may resolve that Richard jr. whose ch. are here refer. to, and whose will of 1680 could not have effect bef. 4 July 1690, when is notic. the first d. in W. of any Richard, was s. of the chief man of the town. But, for a season, sev. yrs. bef. 1673, there was only one, tho. three bef. R. S. at W. and of wills or est. in prob. there is only one exc. the insolv. R. S. call. of Hartford. RICHARD, Ipswich 1642, as Farmer's MS. has it, without a word of add. but it is kn. there was one of the name there 1678. He may have been s. of Richard of Shropham, Co. Norf. short dist. from E. Harling. RICHARD, New London 1652, came from the Vineyard, but soon rem. to Wethersfield, there, says Caulkins, call. senr. and we can hardly doubt that he is the promin.
Richard of W. RICHARD, Watertown, sw. fidel. 1652, perhaps was of Lancaster, and m. 2 Aug. 1654, Joanna Quarles. RICHARD, Boston, came in the Speedwell, July 1656, aged 43, may be the man wh. had (with cons. of their f.) bound to him ch. Edward Phillips for ten yrs. and Deborah P. for 13 yrs. on 12th May 1671, whose indent. on 21 July foll. he assign. to Henry Green of Rumney Marsll, now Chelsea, or perhaps Malden. He was prob. a bricklayer. RICHARD, Wethersfield, call. jun. prob. not s. of Richard of the same, yet, like him, had been of New London, in 1655, was adm. freem. 1658, and is on the list of W. with the other. Difficult as it is to attain certainty, it seems highly prob. that he is the same person, wh. at Hartford, 1665 and 6, is call. junr. yet had s. Samuel well grown, and may be he wh. d. at H. 1689 insolv. Still the opin. of Mr. Chapin is entit. to gr. weight, and aft. fluctuat. long, my friend, Sylvester Judd, concluded, that the Richard Smiths are more confus. than the John S. RICHARD, Lyme, propound. for freem. 1671, had d. Elizabeth wh. m. John Lee.
RICHARD, Salisbury, m. 17 Oct. 1666, Sarah Chandler, had Lucy, b. 17 Sept. 1667; Richard, 30 Oct. 1669; William, 10 Mar. 1673; Mary, 13 Mar. 1676; and his w. d. 6 July, 1682. He took the o. of alleg. 1677, and was freem. 1690. RICHARD, New London, m. 4 Mar. 1670, Bathsheba, d. of James Rogers, had James, bapt. 12 Apr. 1674; Elizabeth; John; and Bathsheba; d. 1682, [[vol. 4, p. 131]] and his wid. m. Samuel Fox. RICHARD, Wickford, call. jun. 1663, s. of Richard the first, purch. Hog Isl. in Narraganset Bay, was one of the Counc. of Sir Edmund Andros. See Hutch. I. 354 in note. His will, of 16 Mar. 1691, call. hims. of Rochester in the King's Prov. at Narraganset, allows us to suppose, that he had no ch. for it gives all the income of his various est. to his w. for her natural life, and no longer, aft. wh. the whole to kinsmen, Lodowick and Daniel Updike," &c. &;c. for wh. we may care less than to obs. the fact, that the instrum. was pro. by our Gov. Sir William Phips, 12 July 1692, only tuo or three days prior to devolv. that office upon Stoughton.
RICHARD, Falmouth, by w. Mary had Thomas, b. 1 684; rem. to Marblehead, and had Richard, 1689, rem. again to Gloucester, where Babson notes those bs. were rec. RICHARD, Salisbury, s. of Richard of the same, by w. Elizabeth had Joanna, b. 22 May 1686; and James, 26 Jan. 1692. ROBERT, Boston, a wine cooper, a. 1637, had w. Mary, went home, and kept the Lion tav. in Fetter lane, as Felt inf. Farmer, and add. that he brot. two sis. Ann, wh. m. John Kenrick, and Mary, wh. m. Philip Torrey. But Mary had first m. John Scarborough. ROBERT, Exeter, one of the formers of the compact 1639 with Wheelwright and others, may have been of Boston the yr. bef. ROBERT, Ipswich 1648. ROBERT, Boston, a mariner, m. betw. 1662 and 1666, Elizabeth wid. of David Kelly, as is shown by deeds of her and her s. David K. ROBERT, Hampton 16O7, took the o. of alleg. Dec. 1678, d. 1706, aged perhaps 95. ROBERT, Charlestown, m. 15 Aug. 1687, Margaret Swilloway of Malden. ROWLAND, Marblehead 1648, may have been br. of James. SAMUEL, Lynn 1630, was a farmer at Swampscot, and Lewis somewhere says he d. 1642.
SAMUEL, Salem 1637, when, Felt says, he had gr. of ld. is perhaps the same wh. d. at Wenham 1642, in his will, of that date 5 Oct. pro. 27 Dec. foll. names w. Sarah; s. Thomas; and his ch. William, and Mary; and d. Mary, w. of William Brown, mo. of William and John B. SAMUEL, Wethersfield, came in the Elizabeth 1634, from Ipswich, then by the custom-ho. rec. aged 32, with w. Elizabeth 32, and ch. Samuel, 9; Elizabeth 7; Mary, 4; and Philip, 1 ; was adm. freem. 3 Sept. 1634 ; was first, perhaps, at Watertown, where most of the passen. of that sh. plant. but in few yrs. rem. with many of them to the banks of the Conn. was rep. 1641-53 almost all the sess. more than any other man, was in 1608 exempt. from train. Next yr. he rem. with many of Rev. Henry Smith's opponents (wh. support. his success. Rev. John Russell's side of the Hartford controv.), to Hadley, where he wag in very high repute, rep. oft. from 1661 to 73, lieut. in com. of the milit. from 1663 to 78, then hon. disch. and his s. Philip made lieut. and a capt. was appoint. for the first time; made a magistr. for the town, and d. in Dec. 1680, or next [[vol. 4, p. 132]] mo. Of the four ch. he bro't three are nam. in his will, tho. he gave the eldest only 5s. no doubt for suffic. reason, yet not express. Mary, not nam. had prob. d. young. Chiliab, and John, his s. are ment. in that docum. the former, b. a. 1636, and the other some yrs. aft. His wid. d. 16 Mar. 1685; and his d. Elizabeth m. 1646, Nathaniel Foote, and next, William Gull, wh. d. 1701, and she outliv. him.
SAMUEL, New London, s. of the preced. brot. from Eng. by his f. 1634, in the Elizabeth from Ipswich, Co. Suffolk, came from Wethersfield, there prob. m. Rebecca, d. of Rev. Henry Smith; was lieut. in 1657, and much betrust. in all town concerns, yet beyond any reason kn. for such conduct, abandon. his w. early in 1664, and went to Roanoke, on the borders of Virg. and N. C. His w. wh. had borne him no ch. was divorc. for such desert. and in 1669 m. Nathaniel Bowman of W. The runaway picked up, it was thot. ano. w. and left descend. at the S. See Caulkins' Hist. SAMUEL, Boston, m. 13 Dec. 1659, Susanna, d. of William Read. SAMUEL, Eastham, s. of Ralph, perhaps b. in Eng. m. 3 Jan. 1665, Mary Hopkins, had a ch. b. and d. Mar. 1667; Samuel, 26 May 1668; Mary, 3 Jan. 1670; Joseph, 10 Apr. 1671, d. at 21 yrs.; John, 26 May 1673; Grace, 5 Sept. 1676, d. at 15 yrs.; and Rebecca, 10 Dec. 1678; and he d. 22 Mar. 1697, aged 55. Ano. SAMUEL liv. at Taunton, there had Hannah, b. 17 Sept. 1662; Sarah, 25 Jan. 1664; Sarah, again, 18 July 1665; Samuel, 15 Oct. 1666; Susanna, 20 July 1669; Esther, 6 Jan. 1672; Nathaniel, 26 July 1675.
SAMUEL, Northampton, s. of the Rev. Henry, and the only one, wh. reach. mature life, the freem. of 1676, had m. a. 1662, Mary, d. of James Ensign, and had Samuel, and Sarah bef. his rem. from Conn. to where he had Dorothy, bapt. 1667; Ebenezer, 1668; beside Ichabod, b. 24 Jan. 1670; Mary, 18 Jan. 1673; James, 12 June 1675; and Preserved, Aug. 1677. Aft. the d. of John Russell, at Madley, h. of his mo. he rem. to Hadley, to take care of her, and d. 10 Sept. 1703. Of his five s. three, viz. the eldest, sett. at Suffleld, where Ichabod, the youngest of them had Samuel, b. 1700, wh. m. Jerusha, d. of Atherton Mather, and had Cotton M. Smith. Ludicrous perversity in modern days of this genealogy, so as to make the blood of the Mathers follow thro. wrong f. and wrong m. beside sinking in the male line one generat. yet grasp. in the female at one too old. See p. 34 in the valua. Centen. of Rev. Alonzo B. Chapin, where all the error is giv. for truth. His Excellency, John Cotton Smith, Y. C. 1783, late Gov. of Conn. was thus, it is ssid, misdirect. by his f. Rev. Cotton Mather S. Y. C. 1751, wh. seems to have partak. in one ill habit of his illustr. namesake. How he should exchange the name of his mos. f. for that of her gr.f. is less strange, however, than it might seem, if we suppose the reference being oft. made to the famous Dr. M. in the youth's hearing, he always assoc. [[vol. 4, p. 133]] the Presid. of the Coll. at Cambridge with that rare title, and thot. more of Increase, than of the humble neph. Atherton Mather, from wh. his own prefix came. Good substitution the f. made in the child's name by enrich. him with an honor. designat. tho. no Cotton blood ran in his veins, as had heedless. been assum.
SAMUEL, Fairfield, propound. for freem. 1670, perhaps m. Sarah, d. of Daniel Frost. SAMUEL, Medfield 1670, had w. Elizabeth SAMUEL, Norwalk 1672, perhaps s. of Thomas, propound. for freem. 1674, m. Rachel, youngest ch. of Matthew Marvin, the first of the same, and had from him gift 20 Aug. 1674. of half his home lot and orchard (Hall, 27); was selectman 1702. SAMUEL, Ipswich, a propr. 1678. SAMUEL, Farmington, s. of William of the same, m. 24 Mar. 1687, Ruth, d. of Thomas Porter, had William, b. 8 Jan. 1688; Sarah, 2 Aug. 1690; Ruth, 24 Feb. 1693, d. soon; Samuel, 26 Feb. 1694; Martha, 20 Jan. 1697; Thomas, 12 Oct. 1699; John, 4 Feb. 1702; James, 10 Oct. 1704; Stephen, 3 Apr. 1707; Ruth, again, 12 Jan. 1710; and Elizabeth 15 July 1713. He d. 1725, and his wid. m. 3 May 1727, Joseph Root. SAMUEL, Hadley, or Northampton, took o. of alleg. at the former 8 Feb. 1679, m. 1685, Joanna Macklathlin, perhaps d. of Robert, and was adm. freem. 1690, as inhab. of the latter. SAMUEL, New Haven, s. of George, a propr. 1685, had w. Obedience, d. of George Lamberton, wh. he m. 1676.
SAMUEL, Hadley, eldest s. of Philip, the first of the same, one of the four of this name at that town, wh. took the o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, of wh. not one was adm. freem. as of H. while three freem. of 1668, 76, and 90, call. of Northampton, show not one to take there the o. of alleg. on the same day as the H. men were sw. He m. 16 Nov. 1682, Mary, d. of Samuel Church of H. had Mary, b. 28 Dec. 1689; Rebecca, 20 Nov. 1691; Samuel, 18 Dec. 1694; Mehitable, 9 May, 1696; and Benoni, 12 June 1700. His w. d. a few d. aft. and he m. 24 Jan. foll. Mary Smith. had Timothy, 1 June 1702; Edward, 17 Nov. 1704, d. young; rem. to Hartford, had Mercy, was deac. there, and d. 1707. SAMUEL, Eastham, s. of Samuel of the same, m. 26 May 1690, Bathshua Lothrop, prob. d. of Barnabas, had Samuel, b. 13 Feb. 1691; and Joseph, posthum. 9 Oct. 1692; the f. d. 17 days bef. SAMUEL, Reading, freem. 1691. SETH, Medfield 1662, had w. Mary.
SHUBAEL, Sandwich, m. 8 Feb. 1678, Mary Swift, had Mercy, b. 3 Feb. 1679; Susanna, 16 Jan. 1681; and Abigail, 2 Feb. 1683. His w. d. 6 Mar. 1689. SIMON, Hartford, br. of Christopher of Northampton, adm. freem. 1677, may be the same wh. in 1646 was fin. for a misdemean. prob. then a youth, perhaps serv. of William Gibbins. Hinman, 236, says he was one of the 28 orig. sett. of Haddam, and had s. Simon, but tho. he copiously tells of the descend. to fourth generat. the only date in his paragr. is 1830, when one of the 4th d. [[vol. 4, p. 134]] aged 93, leav. 250 descend. Still it is true, that he liv. at Haddam, in 1684 call. hims. 56 yrs. old; and Dr. Field thinks he had Benjamin, Simon, Joseph, and John. SIMON, Hadley, s. of Joseph of Hartford, m. 1689, Hannah, wid. of John Haley, d. of Samuel Bliss, had at H. Hannah, b. 1690; Lydia, 1691; rem. to Springfie]d, had there Simon, 1693; Elizabeth 1697; and Margaret, 1699; and last rem. to Hartford, there had Ebenezer, 1702; Martha, 1704, d: young; Elisha, 1706; Jemima, 1708; and Martha, again, 1710. He was liv. at H. 1715.

THOMAS, Lynn, freem. 11 June 1633, rep. 1635, of wh. we ought to kn. more. THOMAS, Saco, was in 1640 of the gr. jury at the first Gen. Ct. held by Vines and others under warrant from the Ld. Propr. of the Prov. Sir Ferdinando Gorges. THOMAS, Salem, had Benjamin, bapt. 17 Feb. 1637; and Nathaniel, 24 Mar. 1639; but in whose right this benefit was bestow. is not seen, for neither f. nor mo. is in the list of ch. mem. tho. Felt tells that he had gr. of Id. that yr. Farmer thinks he was of Lynn 1649, and I think he may have been s. of the preced. Of one Thomas of S. prob. the same, the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. I. 144, shows, that inv. was tak. 17 June 1662, and that he hsd w. and chilar. THOMAS, Watertown, perhaps s. of the first John of the same, b. in Eng. freem. 17 May 1637, m.

Of one of his s. Thomas, or John, the remarka. preserv. from drown. in pass. thro. the wheel pit of his f.'s mill is relat. in Winthrop II. 267.
THOMAS, Newbury, from Romsey, Co. Hants, came in from Ipswich, says Coffln, was a weaver, arr. at Boston in the James from Southampton, 3 June 1635, by w.

Rebecca m. 4 Aug. 1663, Stephen Swett, and d. 1 Mar. 1670. THOMAS, Ipswich, 1641, is, perhaps, the same wh. had w. Joanna in 1655, and there is call. sen. 1679. THOMAS, Gloucester, had Thomas, b. 29 Sept. 1643; and Deborah, 22 Aug. 1648; had commiss. to end small causes in 1644 and 5; possib. is he wh. d. as Coffin tells, at Newbury, 14 May 1653.
