STOCKMAN, JOHN, Salisbury, m. 10 May 1671, Sarah, eldest d. of maj. Rboert Pike, wid. of Wymond Bradbury, took o. of alleg. 22 Dec. 1677, had Joseph, b. 29 Feb. 1672; William, 2 Nov. 1675; Dorothy, 20 Apr. 1678, d. under 18 yrs.; John, 5 Feb. 1681; and Robert, 8 Aug. 1683; and d. 10 Dec. 1686. JOSEPH, Salisbury, eldest s. of the preced. m. 14 Jan. 1702, Hannah, d. of Jacob Morrell, had Dorothy, b. 14 Sept. foll.
STOCKTON, THOMAS, came in the Truelove, from London, 1635, aged 21, but no more is heard.
STOCKWELL, QUINTIN, Hatfield, by w. Abigail had John, b. 1676, at Deerfield, was tak. by the Ind. 19 Sept. 1677, with sev. more, and carr. to Canada and got back next yr. of whose suffer. story at gr.length is giv. by Icrease Mather in his Remarka. Providences. He took o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, and went to Branford, where he had Eleazer, b. 25 Apr. of that yr. in 1692 liv. at Suffield, until 1709, when he, w. Abigail, and s. Eleazer were there.
STODDARD, ANTHONY, Boston, 1639, call. a linen draper, was rec. into our ch. 28 Sept. of that yr. freem. 13 May foll. by first w. Mary, d. of Emanuel Downing of Salem, niece of Gov. Winthrop, sis. of Sir George, absurd. call. Lord George in the fam. geneal. had Benjamin, bapt. 23 Aug. 1640, not nam. in the pr. geneal. that suplies but ill the deficiency of accuracy by its beauty; Solomon, H. C. 1662, bapt. 1 Oct. 1643, a. 4 days old, tho. most of the print. books say he was b. 4 Oct. and this error has been indescently interpol. into the town's copy of rec. of b. perhaps by the hand that made the geneal. perhaps by ano. confid. in the print. vol. and lightly regard. the sanctity of a public rec.; and Samson, b. 3, bapt. 7 Dec. 1645. His w. d. 16 June 1647, and he prob. m. the same yr. Barbara, wid. of Capt. Joseph Weld, of Roxbury, niece prob. of Edward Clap, of Dorchester, hav. made the contr. for m. so early as 24 Aug. and she being, in Dec. as his w. rec. on dism. from the ch. of R. by that of B. had Samuel, bapt. 20 Jan. 1650, a. 6 days old, but in the careless fam. gen. not nam.; Simeon, not ment. in the rec. of b. but bapt. 25 May 1651; tho. the fam. geneal. gives him to the first w. wh. had ben d. more than 3 yrs.; Sarah, b. 21, bapt. 24 Oct. 1652; and Stephen, 6, bapt. 8 Jan. 1654; and this w. d. 15 Apr. 1655. By third w. Christian, tak. as was the custom, within a yr. of whose name, b. or d. we are ign. he had Anthony, b. 16, bapt. 22 June 1656; Christian, 22, bapt. 28 Mar. 1658; Lydia, 27 Mar. bapt. 1 Apr. 1660, tho. the fam. geneal. says by. 27 May; Jospeh, 1, bapt. 8 Dec. 1661, d. at 5 mos.; John, 22, bapt. 16 Apr. 1663; Ebenezer, 1, bapt. 17 July 1664;[[vol. 4, p. 200]]
Dorothy, 24, bapt. 26 Nov. 1665, by name Deboroah, says ch. rec. wh. no doubt is erron.; Mary, 25 Mar. 1668, not found in the ch. rec. where is a vacation for 16 or 17 mos. a. this date; and Jane, 29 July bapt. 6 Aug. 1669; to wh. the geneal, presumptously adds to make ten by this w. a Grace, b. tw. with Jane, of wh. as neither town nor ch. rec. has notice and the other was bapt. 8 days aft. b. I doubt the exist. but many of these ch. d. young. Grace, call. d. in his will of 29 Dec. 1684, pro. 19 May 1687, to wh. he remits whatever she is indebt. was not otherwise entit. than as wid. of a dec. s. of wh. we kn. no more. He was a man of gr. influence, constable as early as 1641, of his scruple in that office to obey the Govr.'s warrant for tak. Francis Hutchinson into custody, and freedom of remark, call. insolence by the author, the story is giv. by Winthrop II. 39. In 1650 he was chos. recorder of B. and a rep. also in 59 and 60, and nineteen yrs. succesiv. from 1665, no man hav. ever ben so oft. chos. for Boston to our days. For a fourth w. he had Mary, wid. of Major Thomas Savage, d. of Rev. Zechariah Symmes, and he d. 16 Mar. 1687, "the ancientest shop-keeper in town," says Sewall in his Diary.
JOHN, Wethersfield, m. 1642, Mary, sec. d. of Nathaniel Foote of the same, had Mary. b. 12 May 1643; John, 12 Apr. 1646; Caleb, and Joshua, tw. 12 Sept. 1648, of wh. the former d. young; Mercy, Nov. 1652; Elizabeth July 1656; and Nathaniel, 1661; and d.

JOHN, Wethersfield, s. of the preced. m. 26 May 1674, Elizabeth d. of Thomas Curtis of the same, had eight ch. and d. 4 Dec. 1703. Six ch. John, Jonathan, David, Samuel, Elizabeth and Mary with w.

JOSHUA, Wethersfield, br. of the preced. m. 15 Aug. 1684, Bethia, d. of Richard Smith of the same, and d. a. 1725, leav. no issue.
NATHANIEL, Wethersfield, br. of the preced. by w. Mary wh. d. 17 Jan. 1693, had one ch. and he m. 7 Dec. foll. Eunice, d. of Thomas Standish of the same, had three ch. and d. 9 Feb. 1714; and his wid. d. 5 Aug. 1716, aged 52, as Goodwin shows without nam. the ch. or giv. dates of b. But the Wethersfield fam. had first writ. their names Stodder. SAMSON, s. of Anthony, in the geneal, hardly to be disting. as neither the name of w. nor date of m. nor place of resid. nor number of ch. nor time of d. is giv. All that it tells, is that he had s. Samson, H. C. 1701. On turn. to our rec. we find, that he was of Boston, by w. Susanna and Anthony, 24 May 1672; Martha, 13 June 1678; and Christian, 11 May 1680; but prob. he rem. yet the b. of one of these ch. of Samson is found on the same page of one of Simeon, wh. found more favor in the [[vol. 4, p. 201]] eyes of the compiler of the geneal.

Only two of these ch. I think, outliv. the f. whose first w. d. 13 Aug. 1708; his sec. w. was, m. 31 May 1709, Elizabeth wid. of Col. Samuel Shrimpton, wh. d. 14 Apr. 1713. His third w. m. 12 May 1715, was Mehitable, wid. of Peter Sargent, wh. had been wid. of Thomas Cooper, d. of James Minot. He was freem. 1670, a mem. of Prov. Counc. and d. 15 Oct. 1730; and his will of 15 Mar. 1728, pro. 31 Oct. 1730, provides for her, and gives resid. of large est. to s. Anthony, and William, and one fourth to childr. of David, and one fourth to childr. of his d. Legg. SOLOMON, Northampton, br. of the preced. at school to famous master Corlet bef.

John, the eldest, Daniel and Samuel, as we learn from his will of 20 Nov. 1661. It was pro. 31 Jan. foll. by John the Excor. and as it provid. for John and Elizabeth Law the gr. ch. and made d. Hannah's sh. if she had not ch. at her d. devis. to her h. and his own three s. we may infer, that most of them were b. in Eng. Fam. tradit. makes his d. 18, prob. 28 Nov. 1661; and adds that Ann perhaps his wid. d. 8 Oct. 1675. JOHN, New London 1650, gave depon. in Feb,. 1672, call. hims. 60 yrs. old, and d. prob. 1676, leav. wid. wh. m. John Sampson, beside two s. Robert, and Thomas, whose descend. are num. in that vicinage; beside one, John, the wonderful murderer (by his own confess. aged 16), of the w. of Thomas Bolles, and two of her ch. and his own half br. John Sampson. See that article. Ano. s. of Sampson six or seven yrs. old, at that time, constit. the whole fam. as far as is kn.

Mercy had Samuel, b. 22 Sept. 1728. RALPH, New London, on Groton side, in 1696, ment. by Caulkins, 159, may not have been the younger br. of the wretched homicide; and as teh same author, 354, finds a ROBERT, also, at Groton, a. 1712, it serves to increase the doubt. SAMUEL, Hingahm, s. of John the first, freem. 1677, m. 6 Feb. 1667, Elizabeth d. of Thomas Gill, had Elizabeth and Tabitha, [[vol. 4, p. 203]] tw. b. 1 Dec. 1667, of wh.

Stoddard by strangers, as that name is freq. seen Stodder.
STOKES, HENRY, Pemaquid, took o. of fidel. to Mass. July 1674. Dr. Harris, the elder, in his Hist. of first ch. of Dorchester, misappro. this name to Fowkes. See that art. ISAAC, Dover 1660. Deborah, perhaps his d. m. 15 Aug. 1687, Richard Kenney. One Grace S. emb. at London, Sept. 1635 in the Hopewell, to come to Boston, of wh. I can tell no more.
STONARD, STONNARD, or STONHARD, JOHN, Roxbury, 1645, in Aug. of that yr. mortgag. his est. to Gov. Dudley and the same was disch. Jan. 1647, was of the ch. but took not the freem.'s o. and was bur. 13 Aug. 1649, a middle-aged man, says Eliot. Perhaps he brot. w. and ch. from Eng. JOSEPH, Haddam, props. for freem. 1669, may have been s. of the preced.
STONE, BENAJAH, Guilford, s. of the first William of the same, m. Esther, d. of John Kirby of Middletown, had Benajah; Esther, b. 3 Nov. 1676; Mary, 9 Oct. 1681; and Abraham, wh. d. young; and d. 1738.

He m. 8 Feb. foll. Abigail Wheeler, wh. d. 28 Oct. 1711, and he m. 18 Nov. 1712, Ruth Haynes, and he d. 1719. DANIEL, Dover 1671. DANIEL, Watertown (whose f. Dr. Bond did not venture to conject. but), in my opin. was s. of the first Daniel, or the first David, and so gr.s. of Gregory; but Bond informs us, that his w. Joanna, and three ch. Daniel, David, and Dorcas were bapt. 19 June 1687, at W. DAVID, Cambridge, s. of Gregory, b. in Eng. freem. 1647, by w. Elizabeth had David, b. Apr. 1649, but mo. and ch. d. soon; by w.

DAVID, Cambridge, s. of Simon the sec. m. 12 Dec. 1710, Mary Rice, perhaps d. of Richard of the same, had only d.

He was selectman oft. rep. 9 yrs. and a rem. of the Provinc. Counc. d. 4 Oct. 1754.
ELIAS, Charlestown, by w. Abigail had Elias, bapt. 24 July 1687; John, 16 Dec. 1688; William, 16 Feb. 1691, d. soon; Abigail, 1 Nov. 1691, d. soon; Abigail, again, 16 July 1693; Mary, 4 Nov. 1694; Thomas, 5 Dec. 1696; Elizabeth 11 Dec. 1698; Sarah, 22 Dec. 1700; Robert, 1 Nov. 1702; Hannah, 4 Feb. 1704; Rebecca, 23 Mar. 17078; Richard, 12 Mar. 1709; and William, again, 4 Jan.1713. I presume, from find, neither f. nor mo among the mem. of ch. that they rem. to C. from some other town. But the name Elias was perpet. at C. thro. 3 or 4 generat. *GREGORY, Cambridge, br. of Simon, did not, I conject. come in the same sh. yet prob. in the same yr. with him, tho. for a yr. or two he dwelt at Watertown, and had gr. there of ld. freem. 25 May 1636, yet more import, is it, that he brot. w. Lydia, formerly wid. Cooper, wh. d. 24 June 1674, with the ch. John and Lydia of her first h. and his own ch.
JOHN, Daniel, David, Elizabeth Samuel, and Sarah, prob. all b. in Eng. He was deac. rep. 1638, and d. 30 Nov. 1672, aged 80. His will, made 8 ds. bef. print. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 69, provides for w. his four s. beside John Cooper, and Lydia Fiske's d. Lydia, wh. he calls the mo. gr.ch. His wid. d. 24 June 1674. Lydia Cooper m. David Fiske; Elizabeth S. m. possib. not prob. Anthony Potter of Ipswich; and Sarah m. 12 July 1653, Joseph Meriam of Concord. HUGH, Andover, m. 15 Oct. 1667, Hannah Foster, perhaps d. of [[vol. 4, p. 205]] Andrew, had John, b. 1668, and others, says Barry, from wh. I would gladly have copies their names and dates, but the informat. is not giv. From the rec. we find the d. of his w. 20 Apr. 1689 "murd. by her h." whence it is safer to conclude, that he was insane. HUGH, Warwick, m. Abigail, a d. of Peter Bassaker, or Busicot, as the R. I. rec. gives the name, had Peter, b. 14 Mar. 1672 or 3; and Abigail, 10 Feb. 1678 or 9. He was in 1666 styl. "late serv. to John Paine of Boston." ISAAC, Salem, had a brick kiln 1692.
JOHN, the capt. of violent temper, wh. in Sept. 1633, was forbit by our Court to come again within this jurisdict. on pain of d. and soon aft. was k. by the Pequods. He belong. to Virg. yet our people made this one of the provoca. to the war, in wh. that tribe was destroy. tho. much stronger was the incitem. caus. by later acts of those Ind. JOHN, Salem 1636, kept the ferry accorss Bass riv. at the earlierst day, ahd gr. of ld. 1637, was one of the found. of the Beverly ch. 23 June 1667, then call, sen. wherefore it may be that he had s. of the same name, and perhaps other ch. Possib. he was passeng. in the Elizabeth 1635, from London, when custom ho. marks the age of the person, 40. JOHN, with his w. admonish. (by our Court) to "make bigger bread" in 1639, may have, soon aft. such hint, rem. from Mass. *JOHN, Cambridge, s. of deac. Gregory, b. in Eng. came with his f. m. Ann, d. of Elder Edward Howe of Watertown, had Hannah, b. 6 June 1640; John, date of whose b. or d. is unkn. but he is thot. to be the eldst s. yet, unform of mind, was subj. to the care of his younger brs.; Daniel, 31 Aug 1644; David, 31 Oct. 1646; Mary; Elizabeth; Margaret, 22 Oct. 1653; Tabitha, 20 or 29 May 1655; Sarah 22 Sept. 1657; and Nathaniel, 11 May 1660; was freem. 1665, than call. of Watertown, and yet one of the earliest sett. of Sudbury 1640, where most of these ch. were b. and there he was Elder of the ch. but prob. in the gr. Ind. war rem. to Cambridge, again, and was its rep. 1682, and 3, and d. 5 May in this latter yr. His will of 16 Apr. preced. calls him aged a. 64 yrs. abstr. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 145, provides for wid. and the ten ch. Hannah m. 1 July 1658 the sec. John Bent of Marlborough; Mary m. 1665, Isaac Hunt, and next, 30 Sept. 1681, as his sec. w. Eliphalet Fox; Elizabeth m. Samuel Stow; Margaret m. 11 Jan. 1676, William Brown; Tabitha m. 2 or 27 (both dates giv. by Barry) Nov. 1674, John Rice; and Sarah m. Jacob Hill.
