STARKE, or START, ARRON, Hartford 1639, or Windsor 1643, an unpromis. youth, subject. by sentence of Court to whip. rem. to New London 1655, near Stonington, freem. 1669; d. as, 1685, leav. s. Aaron, John, William, and had ds. wh. m. John Fish and Josiah Haynes. JOHN, Boston, "Scottish-man, sev. to Lieut. William Hudson, d. 22 May 1652;" was one of the unhappy prisoners, prob. tak. on the bloody field of Dunbar, 3 Sept. 1650, sent over here next yr. to be sold for such a term of yrs. that left no hope to the suffer. ROBERT, Concord, d. 1646. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 57. WILLIAM, Lynn 1641.

 

STARKEY, GEORGE, H. C. 1646, may have been of Lynn, or Malden, but very little ground in favor of either is discernab. Nor is any knowl. likely to be got, other than of his d. in London, Sept. 1665, where he had bestow. his serv. dur. the terrible plague, hav. made hims. acquaint. with medicine, as is relat. in the letters of Allin, the reverend grad. of 1643. For the credit of the new-born Harv. Coll. at Cambridge in N. E. the metropolis of their native ld. in its most dismal visitat. was indebt. to a grad. of its sec. yr. and to ano. of its fifth yr. of bestow. such honors, when the time-honor. university, so many thousand miles nearer, perhaps, gave far less contrib. of educ. skill to her relief.

STARKWEATHER, JOHN, Ipswich 1684, s. of Robert, had w. Ann, and ch. John, b. 16 Sept. 1680; Robert, 12 Nov. 1684; and Richarfd, 25 Dec. 12686. All these ch. were of Stonington 1705, and in that town or neighb. m. and perpetua. the name. His s. John was gr.f. of the late [[vol. 4, p. 173]]

Elizabeth bapt. 23 July 1643; Lydia, 23 June 1644,; John 1646; Deborah, 27 Aug. 1648; he sold his est. at R. and rem. to Ipswich 1651, there d. 1674, and 4 Nov. of that yr. his wid. had admin. By tradit. four other ch. are ment. but not nam.

STEARNS, CHARLES, Watertown, freem. 1646, bot. 1648, est. of Edward Lamb, by w. Hannah had Samuel, b. 2 June 1650. His w. d. July 1651, and he m. 22 June 1654, Rebecca, d. of John Gibson of Cambridge, had Shubael, 20 Sept. 1655; John, 24 Jan. 1657; both at C. but at W. Issac, Charles, Rebecca, and Martha; soon aft. 1681 was of Lynn, there d. bef. 1695. His s. Charles d. in the army bef. his f. Rebecca m. 25 Jan. 1693, Thomas Stearns; and Martha m. a Hutchinson. ISAAC, Watertown 1630, came prob. with Sir Richard Saltonstall in the fleet, was adm. freem. 18 May of next yr. tho. he may have been drawn thither as much by regard for Winthrop, since he was not a dist. neighb. of the Gov. in their native ld. He was of Neyland, Co. suffk. where his two eldest ch. were bapt.; Mary, 6 Jan 1627; and Ann, 5 Oct. 1628. Here by w. Mary (tho. Dr. Cogswell in Geneal. Reg. I. 43, calls Sarah mo. of John) had John, b. perhaps the fist yr.; Isaac, 6 Jan. 1633; Sarah, 22 Sept. 1635; tho. this by Pulsifer in Geneal, Reg. VII. 159 is giv. careless, as ch. of I. and M. Storie; Samuel, 24 Apr. 1638; Elizabeth and Abigail. He d. 19 June 1671, and his will 14 of that mo. provides for w. Mary, for ch. of his s. John; for the ch. of his d. Mary, dec. besides special remem. of Isaac and Mary; for the ch. of ds. Sarah, Elizabeth and Abigail sever. ment. his kinsman Charles S. and makes his won s. Isaac, and Samuel excors. His wid. d. 2 Apr. 1677. 

Prob. he is the ancest. of near. all of his nam. sev. thousand in number, in Mass. but sure. Farmer should have qualif. his universality. He was on the first jury that tr. civ. cause in N. E. when large dams. were giv. against Endicott for assult on Thomas Dexter in May 1631. His d. Mary m. 9 July 1646, Isaac Learned, and d. bef. her f. Ann m. 25 Dec. 1650, Henry Freeman; Sarah m. 7 June 1655, deac. Samuel Stone; Elizabeth m. 13 Aprl. 1664, Samuel Manning; and Abigail m. 27 Apr. 1666, deac. John Morse. 

ISAAC, Cambridge, s. of the preced. liv. in that part, [[vol. 4, p. 174]] call. the Farms now Lexington, m. 24 June 1660, Sarah, d. of Capt. Richard Beers, ahd Sarah, b. 14 Jan. 1662; Mary, 8 Oct. 1663; Isaac 26 Aug. 1665; Samuel, 11 Jan 1668; Abigail; and John, 1675; and d. 2 Aug. 1676. His wid. m. 23 July 1677, Thomas Wheeler; of ds.

Hannah had Rebecca, b. 15 Jan. 1685; Isaac, 28 July 1687; and John, 10 or 20 Dec. 1690; and d. soon aft. His wid. m. Dec. 1694, John Chapman. JOHN, Billerica, s. of the first Isaac, one of the first sett. of B. m. Sarah, only d. of Isaac Mixer, had John, b. May 1654, first b. of the two rec. and Isaac, wh. d. young. His w. d. 18 June 1656, and he m. Dec. foll. at Barnstable, Mary, d. of Thomas Lothrop, had Isaac, again, 17 Apr. 1658, wh. d. young; Samuel, 3 Sept. 1659; Isaac, again, 23 Dec. 1661; Nathaniel, 30 Nov. 1663, d. young; and Thomas, 6 Dec. 1665. He d. 5 Mar. 1669, and his wid. m. 6 May foll. Capt. William French, and in 1684 bec. third w. of Isaac Mixer, and long outliv. him. JOHN, Malden, a capt. m. Joanna, wid. of Jacob Parker, and she d. 4 Dec. 1737, aged 78. 

JOHN, Watertown, s. of Charles, m. a. 1681, Judith d. of George Lawrence, of the same, had Rebecca, b. 21 Mar. 1683; Judith; Sarah; George; and Benjamin, wh. were all bapt. 22 June 1690; John; Thomas, Daniel; Isaac; Mary; Elizabeth; and Abigail; this last b. 12 May 1700; all bapt. 11 May 1701; and Charles, 20 Oct. 1702, bapt. 28 Feb. foll. He was freem. 1690, unless it be that his adm. is of the foll. John, as seems more prob. This Watertown man m. sec. w. 2 Apr. 1713, Mary, d. of Richard Norcorss, and d. 22 Feb. 1722. JOHN, Billerica, s. of John the first wh. d. 26 Oct. 1728, aged 74, was, I think, the freem. of 1690, and the found. of a very num. line much diffus. *NATHANIEL, Dedham 1647, freem. 2 May 1649, had Samuel, bapt. 25 Nov. 1666; Nathaniel, 6 Dec. 1668; and James, 28 May 1671. Yet I doubt, from the lateness of these dates, that not the freem. of 1649, but ano. Nathaniel of D. perhaps his s. was f.; was a lieut. rep. 1684, 9, 90, and 1. SAMUEL, Watertown, s. of Isaac the first, m. 1 Feb. 1663, Hannah, eldest d. of William Manning, had Samuel, b. 4 May 1664, wh. d. at 7 yrs.; Hannah, 8 Dec, 1666; Nathaniel, 13 Dec. 1668; Sarah, 23 Apr. 1671; Samuel, again, 29 Mar. 1673; Isaac, 31 Dec. 1674; John, 24 June 1677; Mary, 5 Apr. 1679; Abigail, 16 Apr. 1680; and Joseph, 11 Dec. 1682, d. in few mos. He d. 1683, and his wid. d. 16 Feb. 1724, aged near 82 yrs. SAMUEL, Watertown, s. of Charles, by w. Mehitable had Joseph, bapt. 7 Aug. 1698, more than four yrs after d. of his f. and Samuel, b 27 Feb. 1686, bapt. 21 Aug. 1698. He d. bef. 6 June 1694, the date of his inv.

His w. d. 24 or 28 Aug. 1689; he m. 11 Apr. 1690, Mary, wid. of Samuel Ball had no ch. by her. He d. 12 Oct. 1698, and his wid. m. 29 Dec. 1704, James Warriner the elder.

His w. d. 12 June 1700, andhe m. 18 Oct. 1701, Mary, wid. of Isaac Colton, and d. 31 Oct. 1712. Increase is nam. by Farmer, as of Springfield 1650, but I fear it is an error. 

JOHN, Watertown, by w. Mary or Margaret had John b. 25 Mar. 1640; and Mary, 6 Aug. 1641, [[vol. 4, p. 176]] may as Miss Caulkins suppos, have rem. to New London in its earliest day; but his w. was Margaret wh. d. 1 Jan. 1679.

But in Dr. Dond's Geneal, Reg. of W. tho. he notes this suffering of Bigelow, the name of Stebbins for many yrs. bef. had dispp. Of this name, in 1816, there had been gr. six at Yale, and one at Harv.

JOHN, Cambridge, s. of Robert, m. 14 May 1666, Elizabeth Remington, d. of the first John, had John, b. 22 Aug. 1668; and Elizabeth wh. d. 15 July 1676; and he d. of smallpox, 24 Nov. 1678.

Hammond, wh. ment. that his d. their mo. was d. bef. 30 Sept. 1675, when that will, without date, says Jackson, was brot. in ROBERT, Cambridge 1638, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, by w. Ann had a d. b. 14 Sept. 1638, d. young; John, 27 Dec. 1642; Mary, 27 Apr. 1645, wh. m. 1 Apr. 1674, Daniel Thurston; and Thomas, wh. d. 9 Apr. 1659, prob. quite young; and d. 20 Jan. 1666. His wid. liv. beyong 10 Dec. 1674, but d. bef. Nov. 1676. 

THOMAS, New London 1649, of wh. Caulkins was unable to find more but he soon disapp. may have been f. of the sec. John, and of Thomas, whether he d. at N. L. or rem. THOMAS, Boston, of that pt. call, Muddy riv. now Brookline, m. Mary, d. of John Watson of Roxbury, bef. 1671, ahd Thomas, Joshua, Joseph, and Mary, all nam. with legacies in the will of their uncle John W. 1693.

His wid. m. John Fox; and Ann m. Benjamin Lester. In our Reg. of Suffk. is a deed to him, of 23 Nov. 1671, from Wampas, an Ind. seaman of Boston, of 110 acres lying betw. Marlborough and Mendon; but I think the considerat. does not appear. Five of this name at Harv. and two at Yale had bene gr. in 1801.

STEDWELL, STUDWELL, or STEADWELL, JOSEPH, Rye 1683, Greenwich 1697, resolv. therefore to hold to jurisdict. of Conn. THOMAS, Stamford 1667, d. 1670. THOMAS, Greenwich, perhaps s. of the preced. in 1658 adm. the jurisdict. of New Haven, was of Rye 1662-72, but in the disput. claims betw. N. Y. and Conn. came back to G. 1692-97.

He was of gr. serv. one of the commiss. from Mass. to gov. the first colonists at Conn. and rep. almost every yr. fr. 1537 to 59 inclus. By first w. Rachel, wh. d. 1653, he had John, and Samuel, b. prob. in Eng. But his w. and childr. are by Cothren, it is thot. borrow, from John, his br. He will of 24 May 1663, ment. s. James, to wh. most of his est. was giv. and Elizabeth w. of Thomas Watts. Perhaps he had ano. d. b. 1640, wh. m. and had d. Martha; but the fam. geneal. is very obscure. HENRY, Cambridge, nam. in Holmes's Hist. as of that town 1632, 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. p. 10; but as the name never appears again, I think he d. soon, or perhaps went home. 

JAMES, Hartford 1657, s. of George, but prob. b. in Eng. m. late in life, perhaps as sec. w. Bethia, d. of John Hopkins, wid. of Samuel Stocking; but by former w. m. 18 Oct. 1651, had s. James, b. a. 1654; and John, a. 1660, wh. d. bef. his f. beside ds. Sarah, a. 1656; Mary, the eldest; Elizabeth; and Rachel; their mo. perhaps was Ann, d. of John Bishop. He was commissa. for all Conn. forces in Philip's war.

His wid. m. 20 Nov. 1718, James Judson of Stratford, whose first w. was her cous. JAMES, Hartford, s. of James of the same, m. Sarah Barnard, d. of Bartholomew, had a ch. bapt. 1691; James; Jonathan, b. 1693; Stephen, 1696, Y. C. 1718; Sarah; Elizabeth; and Mary; and d. 1712. *JOHN, Cambridge 1632 or 3, by Farmer call. of Dorchester 1630, but without any high authority, was br. of George, freem. 14 May 1634, rep. in Mar. foll. and two next Cts. and in 1636, appoint. with Ludlow, Pynchon and others to admin. governm over the gr. Exodus to Conn. (wh. was contin. 2 or 3 yrs. in that state of pupilage) rep. very oft. from the first assemb. 1639 to 57; was town clk. of H. until he rem. to Farmington 1645; by w. Rachel, wh. d. 1653, had John, wh. d. bef. his f. and Samuel, b. in Eng. and ds. Lydia, wh. m. 31 Mar. 1657, James Bird; and Mary, m.

His will of 30 Jan. 1664 names w. Mary, or Mercy, s. Samuel, two s.-in-law, William and Thomas Judd, and the three ch. of the dec. s. and Rachel, d. of Samuel. By fam. tradit. he is deriv. from Co. Essex, and this seems prob. eno. [[vol. 4, p. 181]]

JOHN, Farmington, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. 22 Jan. 1646, Mary, or Mercy, d. of Andrew Warner, had Mary, b. 20 Nov. foll.; John, 1650; Samuel, 15 Mar. 1652; and Benoni; and was ens. of the milit. 1651, but d. 1653.

*SAMUEL, Farmington, s. of John the first, m. Mary, d. of James Boosey, had Mary, b. 5 Dec. 1652; Rachel, 30 Oct. 1654; Sarah, bapt. 28 Dec. 1656, but both these have wrong dates of bapt. in fam. geneal.; Samuel, b. 1659, prob. d. young; John bapt. perhaps 1, certain. not (as pring. in Geneal. Reg. XI. 327) 10 Dec. 1661, wh. was Tuesday; James, 1662, or 4, not as pr. in fam. geneal. 31 Aug. 1664, when his mo. was less than nine yrs. old; Hannah, 1668; and Ebenezer, 13 or 30 Aug. 1671 (in fam. geneal. mispr. 1701, wh. was 56 yrs. later than his f.'s m. and many aft. his d.), and d. at Wethersfield, 14 Aug. 1686.

His wid. d. 1720. Ten of this name, half without final e, had, in 1847, been gr. at Yale, sev. at other N. E. coll. if Farmer be right, wh. I doubt, and two at Harv. of wh. one has double l.

STEERE, JOHN, Providence 1645, took engag. of alleg. in June 1668, m. Hannah, d. of William Wickenden, had John, William, and Thomas, but no dates are found. Descend. are now very num. RICHARD, New London 1690, fined for libel 1695, m. a. 1692, Elizabeth wid. of John Wheeler.
