Dictionary of The First Settlers of New England,
By James Savage
STEWART,or STEWARD, oft. STUART, ALEXANDER, Charelestown, shipwright, by w. Hannah, nam. with ch. James, and John in the will, Jan. 1669, of her gr.f. Richard Prichard of C. of wh. I suppose James d. young, but both prob. b. in ano. town; had at C. Hannah, Samuel, and Margaret, all, with John, bapt. 9 May 1675, the mo. hav. d. on 21 Aug. preced. To C. he had come from ano. town, not kn. as I conject. from that bapt. when he was not a ch. mem and rem. to Marlborough, there m. 22 May 1688, Deborah, wid. of Daniel Farrabas, or Farrowbush, d. of Jon Bediat, the first, of Sudbury. But a very dilig. inquir. A. H. Ward, Esquire, calls her his third w. yet I kn. not the sec. He had by Deborah a d. and d. 6 Apr. 1731, his w. hav. d. ten or more prob. eleven yrs. preced. DANIEL, Barnstable, was their bef. 1666, as Mr. Hamblin says, and prob. had ch. for I find many in a third generat. but kn. nothing of sec.
DUNCAN, Newbury, shipwright, perhaps br. of Alexander, had Martha, b. 4 Apr. 1659; Charles, 5 June 1661; James, 8 Oct. 1664; Henry, 1 May 1669; rem. to Rowley, had three more, [[vol. 4, p. 191]] and d. 1717, aged, as Coffin says, prob. from exagger. tradit. 100. JAMES, Plymouth, came in the Fortune 1621, prob. without w. or ch. as he has, in the div. of lds. 1624, only a single sh. and we may well suppose he had soon d. or rem. as in the div. of cattle, 1627, his name is not found among the 156, compos. the total populat. JAMES, Middlebury, L. I. 1656. JAMES, Weymouth, by w. Ann had Susanna, b. 23 May 1669; JAMES, 26 June 1672; and Ann, 22 Jan. 1675; possib. others earlier.
JAMES, Norwalk 1687, eldest s. of Robert, was ens. in 1713. JAMES, Newbury, s. of Duncan, by w. Elizabeth had James, b. 29 July 1688; and Charles, 10 Jan. 1690. JOHN, Springfield, perhpas as early as 1650, m. Sarah, d. of the first John Stiles; sw. alleg. 1678, and d. 21 Apr. 1690. His wid. m. next yr. John Sacket of Northampton. JOHN, Newbury, perhaps s. of Alexnader, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 11 Dec. 1680, and his w. d. in few days; aft. wh. perhaps he rem. to Rowley. JOHN, Norwalk 1708, s. of Robert JOSEPH, Salisbury, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 19 Dec. 1667. RICAHRD, by Farmer is ment. as of ar. co. 1652, but to me the exist. seems shadowy. ROBERT, Norwalk, mov. in from Milford, where he had not been long, buying est. in N. 1660, m. 12 June 1661, Bethia, d. of Thomas Rumball of Stratford, had James, b. 29 Mar. 1662; Abigail, Aug. 1666; John, 18 Mar. 1668; Deborah, May 1669; Elizabeth Sept. 1671; and Phebe, Feb. 1673, or 4; and was liv. 1687. From him descend. the late learned theolog. profess. Moses Stuart, tho. the degr. are less sure.
WILLIAM, Lynn, d. 18 Mar. 1664, and his wid. Sarah ret. inv. 29 June foll. A capt. S. is nam. by Sewall, in his Diary, as d. early in Aug. 1693. Of the gr. historic name, the clan of Stuart, were Austin, Charles, Neil, and Robert, prisoners of war from the sad field of 3 Sept. 1651, at Worcester, Cromwell's crowning mercy, sent to Boston, where they arr. 13 May 1652, to be sold, but not to perpet. servit. as John Cotton gently suggests to Oliver. I can feel no doubt, that the gr. majority, betw. three quarters and nine tenths, d. of scurvy or broken heart; and not one in fifty of these young men left progeny.
STICKNEY, or STICKNEE, AMOS, Newbury, was from Hull Co. York, s. of William, perhaps b. in Eng. is said to have been first at Boston, next at Rowley, of course, with his f. but at N. m. 24 June 1663, Sarah Morse, prob. d. of Anthony the first, had John, b. 23 June 1666; Andrew, Dec. 1667; Amos, 3 Aug. 1669; Joseph, 14 Apr. 1671; Benjamin, 4 Apr. 1673; Sarah, 19 Oct. 1674, d. next yr.; Hannah, 31 Mar. 1676; Moses, 26 Nov. 1677; and perhaps Sarah, again, posthum. sw. alleg. 25 May 1669, and he d. 29 Aug. 1678. His wid. m. 17 Dec. 1684, Stephen Acreman.
ANDREW, Newbury, s. of the preced. by w. Rebecca had Rebecca, b. 16 Jan. 1693, and his w. d. a few days later; [[vol. 4, p. 192]] but of him I find no more, exc. his tak. sec. w. Elizabeth eldest d. of sec. James Chute, and d. at Rowley 29 Apr. 1727. BENJAMIN, Rowley, br. of the preced. m. Mary Palmer, had six s. and done d. and d. 5 Mar. 1756. JOHN, Rowley, s. of William, m. Hannah, d. of that capt. Samuel Brocklebank, which was k. in Philip's war, had John, Samuel, and five ds. JOHN, Newbury, s. of Amos, m. 10 Dec. 1689, Mary Poor, d. prob. of sec. John of the same, had Mary, b. 1 July 1691; John, 30 July 1693; Sarah, 10 May 1696; Prudence, 15 Sept. 1699; and Joseph 19 Dec. 1700. *SAMUEL, Bradford, eldest s. of William b. in Eng. rep. 1689 and 90, m. 18 Feb. 1654, Julian, or Susan, d. of Richard Swan of Rowley, had four ch. of wh. I see the name of Samuel only, b. 5 Apr. 1663, at R. and aft. rem. to B. by sec. w. m. 6 Apr. 1674, Prudence Gage, wid. of Benjamin, and d. of Thomas Leaver, town clk. of R. by which he had three more ch. of wh. no names are kn. He was freem. 1682, and d. 1715, leav. wid. Prudence.
SAMUEL, Bradford, eldest s. of the preced. was a man of good serv. as selectman, had w. Mary, and it is said, twelve, ch. of wh. I see not the names, exc. that the first s. was Thomas, bat. 1695; and that Sarah and Mary were also bapt. that yr.; Richard, 5 June 1709; Abraham and Jonathan, perhaps tw. 21 Jan. 1711; and Dorothy, 6 Apr. 1712. THOMAS, Newbury, s. of William, sw. alleg. 25 May 1669, was of Bradford, when freem. 1685. WILLIAM, Rowley, was adm. of Boston ch. 6 Jan. 1639, hav. come prob. the yr. preced. from Hull in Yorksh. and on 24 Nov. aft. was with others dism. to found the new ch. at R. was freem. 7 Oct. 1640, but prob. he brot. w. and one or more ch. from Eng. His w. was Elizabeth and of the ch. are kn. Samuel; John, b. 1640; Andrew, 1644; Thomas, 1646; Mary; Faith; and Mercy; beside the first ment. Amos; and he d. 15 Jan. 1665. but the order of success. is uncert. and perhaps he had other ch. than Farmer could tell. Faith m. 10 June 1674, at Bradford, Samuel Gage, and an Elizabeth S. m. 21 July 1680, also at B. Daniel Tenny.
STILEMAN, or STYLEMAN, ELLIAS, Salem, an early sett. even as Felt suggests, may have come in the fleet wiht Higginson, 1629, prob. brot. s. Elias, but of his w. Judith we hear no more; freem. 3 July 1632, licens. to keep an ordinary in 1635, when he was constable, gave up prob. that employm. in 1653, and was made clk. of the Court for the Co. and d. 1662. His inv. was tak. 7 Nov. of that yr. A very dilig. inquir. in Essex Inst. II. 163, is confid. that he d. bef. June 1639, tho. he states that the inv. was not brot. in bef. Nov. 1663. Yet, as E. S. jr. appears in many appraisem. 1653 and aft. I doubt much. * ELIAS, Salem, perhaps s. of the preced. b. a. 1617, adm. of the ch. 18 Aug. 1639, and freem. 18 May 1642, ahd Elias, bapt. 15 Mar. 1640; and Elizabeth hw. m. a. 1687, John Jordan; was of ar. co. 1645, rem. perhaps not bef. 1663 to Portsmouth; m. sec. w. 10 Apr. 1667, Ruth Maynard, had Ruth, wh. m. 5 Sept. 1687, William, Buswell or Bussell. In the list of [[vol. 4, p. 193]] early sett. of N. E. pr. Geneal. Reg. I. 139, E. S. is by mistake call. constable of Boston 1673. The name of seven chos. that yr. to that office have only Skarlet and Shrimpton of that initial fam. letter, and not one Elias. He was almost always in office; was rep. 1667 and five yrs. more, a counsel; under Presid. Cutt, or Gov. Cranfield, 1681 or 2 a capt. and major, rep. again 1690, and d. 19 Dec. 1695, aged 78.
RICHARD, Cambridge, by w. Hannah had Samuel, b. 23 May 1644, bapt. at Salem, 20 July 1651, he hav. rem. thither, and soon aft. to Portsmouth, where by w. Mary were b. Mary, 6 Jan. 1658; Elizabeth 8 May 1663; Sarah, 30 June 1665; and Richard, 20 Mar. 1668; and d. 11 Oct. 1678. Prob. he as br. of the preced. tho. sometimes the name is print. Stillman.
STILES, or STYLES, BENAJMIN, Woodbury, s. of Francis, m. Elizabeth Rogers of Milford, perhaps d. of Eleazer, had Sarah, bapt. May 1683; Thomas, Nov. 1685, prob. d. bef. his f.; Ruth; Abigail, Apr. 1689; and Francis; rem. to Stratford, there d. 13 Apr. 1711, and his wid. d. 13 June 1719. EPHRAIM, Stratford, eldest s. of Francis, freem. 168, m. 8 July 1669, Ruth, wid. of Obadiah Wheeler, and afterwards m. Bathsheba Tomlinson, d. of Henry, by wh. he had, and left, at his d. 21 June 1714, three ds.; Elizabeth b. 18 Feb. 1687; Sarah, 4 Nov. 1693; and Phebe, 25 Mar. 1696; wh. all m. His est. was large. EPHRAIM, Springfield, s. of John the sec. m. 1694, Abigail Neal, d. of Edward of Westfield, had Rachel, b. 21 May 1695; Issac, 6 Oct. 1696; Ephraim, 5 Dec. 1699; Abigail, 15 Mar. 1704, d. young; and Hannah 31 July 1708.
FRANCIS, Windsor 1636, one of the first freem. of Conn. 1640, had come from London, where he was a carpenter, early in the yr. preced. aged 35, in the Christian, and sat down short tme at Dorchester. Prob. he was s. of Thomas of Milbrook, near Ampthill in Co. Bedford, bapt. 1 Aug. 1602, wh. makes us presume, that the age of the London rec. should be 33, as the reg. of the parish certif. to me by the min. in 1842, deserves much higher credit than that of the custom h. I presume to brot. w. Rahcel, unless she was sis. aged 28 , but two ws. and two ch. beside the four brs. in the same sh. are diffic. to be approp. Cothren, p. 694, makes him, from fam. tradit. to be engag. in prepar. of a park for Richard Saltonstall, not Sir Richard, wh. is a mistake, for Suffk. reg. of deeds. Vol. I. 98, has the release of all demands by him up to date of Sept. 1647, as well against Sir Richard, as s. Robert. He work. I suppose under direct. of Robert, wh. was less judicious than his elder br. He made over to Robert Saltonstall, by deed dat. 22 Sept. 1647 all his lds. at W. includ. 1500 acr. in one parcel on the E. side of the riv. but the debt exceed the val. He than calls hims. of Saybrook, yet bec. three of his four s. were aft. at Stratford.,[[vol. 4, p. 194]] Cothren tells, tha the rem. a. 1640 to Stratford, wh. must be sev. yrs. too early (as tradit. oft. is), for Ephraim was b. at W. 3 Aug. 1645, and his is the only b. found in the old rec. He was never of S. and he prob. at W. d. 1653, or earlier. of childr. he had Ephraim, Samuel, Benjamin, Thomas, Hannah, and Mary, wh. m. Hope Washburn of Derby; Hannah m. Edward Hinman. Her mo. was Sarah, as Hinman, 141, tells. She m. Robert Clark of Stratford, and by her will of 5 June 1677 left little prop. to disp. among her ch. the inv. of 2 Feb. 1682, showing only L85.
HENRY, Windsor, eldest br. of the preced. bapt. 27 Nov. 1593, at Milbrook, near Ampthill in Co. Bedford, a carpenter, adm. to be citizen of London on 2d Tuesday of Apr. 1632, emb. in the Christian, at London, Mar. 1635, aged 40, says the London custom ho. rec. with John, Thomas, and Francis, his brs. also, and went with the earliest migrat. from Dorchester, where he could have liv. but few mos. was never m. is nam. on the first page of Conn. rec. as hav. trad. a musket with an Ind. in Apr. 1636, which he as direct. to regain. He was k. by casual shot of a gun in a milita. train, Cothren from the fam. mem. says, 3 Oct. 1651. HENRY, Windsor, s. of John, brot. by his f. in the Christian 1635, at age of 3 yrs. freem. 1669; had ch. wh. d. with the mo. whose name in the Stiles MS. is call. Ketch, of Stratford; and for sec. w. he m. 16 Apr. 1663, Elizabeth Wilcockson, prob. d. of William had Elizabeth b. 30 Nov. 1664; Margaret, 6 Feb. 1667; Mary, 28 Sept. 1669; Mindwell, 19 Dec. 1671, wh. d. bef. 13 yrs.; and Samuel, 16 May 1674. To these Cothren adds Henry, wh. was the first b. Joseph, Benjamin, John, and Jonathan, but without desirab. dates of b. tho. of some he gives day of d. and approxim. of age, and says the f. d. 22 Aug. 1724, aged 95, wh. is perhaps less exagger. than usual, not more than three yrs. to large. ISAAC, Stratford, s. of John the first, of Windsor, liv. first at Wethersfield 1665, and when freem. 1670, had, says Cothren, from Presdt. Stiles's MSS. Isaac, b. 1663; John; Joseph; Jonatahn, 20 Mar. 1688; Sarah; Lydia or Deborah; and Hannah; but he is not able to inform us of the name of the mo. or dates of sev. ch.
JOHN, Windsor, s. of Thomas, bapt. at Milbrook, Co. Bedford, 25 Dec. 1595, came with his brs. Francis, Henry, and Thomas, in the Christian from London, Mar. 1635, tho. his age in the custom ho. rec. is call. 35, wh. I judge to be liable to correct. by exchange. the yrs. of Henry and John; he also brot. w. prob. Jane, aged 35; and s. Henry, 3 yrs. and John, 9 mos. Of course he first liv. at Dorchester or Boston, and prob. rem. with others of D. by ld. to Conn. Beside the ch. he brot. from Eng. he ahd Issac, and Sarah, and d. 4 June 1662. His wid. whose name is not kn. d. 3 Sept. 1674. Cothren says his will was of 30 May 1662. Sarah m. first, John Stewart of Springfield next 1691, 1691, John Sackett of Westfield. Fam. tradit. [[vol. 4, p. 195]] claims for the w. of John, that she was the first Eng. woman that ever stept ashore at Conn. wh. is as reasonab. as the similar stories for Mary Chilton at Plymouth, and Ann Pollard at Boston. But the Story of Stiles is far less prob. JOHN, Windsor, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. 28 Oct. 1658, Dorcas, d. perhaps youngest, of Henry Burt of Springfield, had Sarah b. 12 Sept. 1661; Hannah, 12 Mar. 1664; John, 10 Dec. 1665; beside Ephraim and Thomas, not rec. was freem. 1668, and d. 8 Dec. 1683. Hannah m. 21 Jan. 1687, Samuel Bliss of Springfield; and Sarah m. 1 or 5 May 1681, Ephraim Bancroft, and next, Thomas Phillips.
JOHN, Windsor, eldest s. of the preced. m. Ruth Bancroft, had Ruth, b. 5 Feb. 1691; John, 17 Dec. 1692; Margaret, 23 Feb. 1695; Isaac, 30 July 1697; Ebenezer, 7 Apr. 1701; Noah, 31 Jan. 1703; Abel, d. soon; Hannah, and ano. tw. both d. soon, as had a pair tw. some yrs. bef.; Abel, again, 5 or 10 Mar. 1709; Hannah, again, 9 Oct. 1711; and Benoni, 1714, d. soon. He was gr.f. of Rev. Ezra, disting, equal. for his extensive crudit. and amiable credulity, wh. was b. 29 Dec. 1727, eldest ch. of Isaac, and only one by w. Kezia, d. of Rev. Edward Taylor of Westfield, wh. d. five days aft. The chronology of too many of the fourteen ch. belong. to John, is so strangely confus. in Cothren, 697, that it defies restorat. JOHN, Boxford, freem. 1690, may have been s. of Robert of the same; but certain. Dorchester 1692, perhaps was s. of Robert of the same; but certain. is beyond reach, and all that can be kn. is, that his w. was Mary, that he had John, Joseph, Elizabeth Mary, Nathaniel, and Nehemiah, of wh. Joseph, Mary, and Nathaniel d. of smallpox in the fatal season of Jan. 1721-2. ROBERT, Boxford, m. 4 Oct. 1660, Elizabeth d. of John Frye of Andover; was of Rowley 1661, but perhaps rem. to Dorchester, where I find one of this name 1663, yet in my opin. this Dorchester man was older than him of B. possib. but not prob. was s. of John the first; and inscript. on gr. stone is of his d. 2 Nov. 1710, and age, a. 91, that may seem something too high.
SAMUEL, Stratford, br. of Benjamin, in the freem's list of 1669, m. 31 Dec. 1664, says Cothren, Elizabeth Sherwood, but d. childless, prob. bef. 1682, as in 1673 he had agreed with others to begin the sett. of Woodbury, and was not in the list of 1682. THOMAS, youngest br. of Francis, Henry, and John, came in the same ship with them, aged 20, says the custom ho. rec. but that of his bapt. 7 Feb. 1613, in the native parish, would give him two yrs. more. yet it would be of higher interest, to kn. where he liv. on our side of the water, and what could be told of him, beyond the single fact, that, at the assault on the Pequods in their last shelter of the swamp, 1637, he was shot, but not hurt, by an arrow strik. in his neckerchief. See Mason's hist. of that war. He may have been of Windsor, but it is at least equal. prob. that he was of Dorchester, neither town hav. proof or presumpt. in its favor. Had he [[vol. 4, p. 196]] left descend. one might hope to hear of the birth-place of the ch. Some slight note is seen in Stile's MSS. indeed that he went to Flushing, L. I. had two ds. no s. THOMAS, Stratford, s. of Francis, had w. wh. d. bef. him, but no ch. and he d. early in 1683. THOMAS, Windsor, youngest s. of John the sec. m. Bethia Hanmer, d. perhaps of John of Scituate, as the fam. tradit. may indicate, had no ch. and d. 1745. Eleven, of this name had been gr. at Yale, in 1851, and one at Harv.
STILLMAN, *GEORGE, Hadley, m. 1686, Rebecca, d. of the first Philip Smith, had George, b. 1686; Rebecca, 14 Jan. 1688; Mary, 12 July 1689; Nathaniel, 1 July 1691; John, 19 Feb. 1693; Sarah, 28 Dec. 1694; Martha, 28 Nov. 1696; Ann, 6 Apr. 1699; Elizabeth 19 Oct. 1700; Hannah, and Lydia, tw. 7 Nov. 1702; and Benjamin, 29 July 1705; all at H. of wh. town he as rep. 1698; rem. to Wethersfield, where he was a promin. merch. and d. 17 Nov. 1728, in his 74th yr. His wid. d. 7 Oct. 1750, in 83d yr. Descend. have been num. in Conn.
STILLWELL, or STILWELL, JASPER, Guilford 1650, one of the first planters 1640, d. Nov. 1656. Dr. Stiles was able to add nothing. But my dilig. friend Judd gives him w. Elizabeth and d. Elizabeth wh. m. 26 Nov. 1657, John Graves.
STILSON, VINCENT, Milford 1646, d. 1690, but more than half that interval, liv. away from M. and at Marblehead is seen 1668-74. In his will names w. Mary, 5 s. Vincent, James, Hugh, Charles, Moses, and ds. Agnes Hawkins, and the w. of George Barley, wh. may be the same as Barlow. VINCENT, Marblehead, call, junr. in the sign. of petitn. of inhabs. of M. 1668, may have been s. of the preced.
STIMPSON, or STIMSON, ANDREW, Cambridge, by w. Jane had Rebecca, b. 20 Jan. 1643; and Mary, 17 Jan. 1647. ANDREW, Charlestown, s. of the preced. wiht w. Abigail join. the ch. 28 Jan. 1683, when she, and d. Abigail were bapt. had also Andrew, bapt. 18 Feb. foll. d. young; Mary, 26 Oct. 1684; Andrew, b. 9 Jan. 1686, d. very soon; John, bapt. 16 Jan. 1687; Bethia, 23 Mar. 1690; Benjamin, 18 Sept. 1692, d. under 30 yrs; Joseph, 22 Dec. 1695; Lydia, 22 Aug. 1697; and Joseph, 18 Feb. 1700; and d. says bond, 14 Dec. 1721, aged 72. GEORGE, Ipswich 1668, m. 22 July 1676, Alice Phillips, had George, b. 17 Aug. 1677, d. within one yr.; Richard, 10 Mar. 1679; Elizabeth 11 Jan. 1681; Mercy, 11 Mar. 1683; Alice, 18 Feb. 1685; Sarah, 14 June. 1691; John, 27 Aug. 1694; and Mary, 4 Mar. 1696. JOHN, the freem. of 1645 I can assign to no resid.
JOHN, Charlestown, with w. Abigail join. the ch. 22 Feb. 1685, and had John, Joseph, Benjamin, Jonathan, Abigail, Susanna, and Deborah, all bapt. the Sunday foll. JONATHAN, Watertown, m. a. 1673, Elizabeth d. of Joshua Stubbs of the same, had [[vol. 4, p. 197]] James, his eldst; Jonathan, b. 8 Aug. 1675; Abigail; Mary; Elizabeth 31 Jan. 1681; Samuel, 15 Feb. 1683; Rebecca, bapt. 7 Nov. 1686; Joseph, 24 May 1688; and Benjamin, 24 Apr. 1690; by sec. w. Abigail he had John; was freem. 1690, and d. 22 Dec. 1692. Bond thinks he was br. of sec. Andrew. JONATHAN, Charlestown, with w. Wait, join. the ch. 22 Feb. 1685, had Jonathan, bapt. on Sunday foll. JOSEPH, Dover 1665-75, by Mr. Quint, a good judge of the case, is thot. to be Stevenson.
STINT. See Stent.
STIRK, GEORGE, the gr. of Harv. 1646, is all unkn. to us by f. and mo. br. sis. or friend, but W. Winthrop on his Catal. had quot. from MS. of Rev. Andrew Eliot, "that Mr. S. was an emin. chemist, and wrote sev. Latin treatis." As he did not have his A. M. we may presume he went to Eng. early; and that he was d. 1698 is almost our whole rec. of his life. But it is highly prob. that the true name was Starkey, wh. see.
STOCKBRIDGE, BENAJMIN, Scituate, s. of Charles the first, m. 1701, Mary Tilden, had Benjamin, b. 1704, a physician of emin. and perhaps other ch. CHARLES, Scituate, s. of John, brot. from Eng. by his f. in the Blessing at the age of 1 yr. liv. first at Boston, wheelwright, and by w. Abigail had CHARLES, B. 9 Dec. 1659, d. with the wrong name of John by rec. in 2 mos. and at Charlestown had Abigail, 24 Feb. 1662; at Scituate, Charles, again, 4 Feb. 1664; Sarah, 30 May 1665; Thomas, 6 Apr. 1667; Elizabeth 13 Aug. 1670; Joseph, 28 June 1672; Benjamin, 9 Oct. 1676; and Samuel, 9 July 1679; Henry Josselyn; Sarah m. Amos Turner. Abigail m. 4 Nov. 1679; and d. 1683, and his wid. m. Israel Turner; and Elizabeth m. David Turner. CHARLES, Scituate, eldest s. of the preced. had Rachel, b. 9 Apr. 1690; Mary, 11 Aug. 1692; Abigail, 22 Mar. 1695; Hannah, 30 Jan. 1698; Ruth, 30 July 1700; Experience, 1 Jan. 1704; Judith, 19 July 1706; and Charles, 13 Oct. 1709, d. prob. in few mos. as may, perhaps, one or more other s. He was one of the first selectmen of the new town of Hanover, sett. off from S. 1727, and d. it is thot. 7 Apr. 1731.
JOHN, Scituate, wheelwright, came in the Blessing from London 1635, aged 27, with w. Ann, 21, and s.
