STRONG, EBENEZER, Northampton, fifth s. of Elder John, m. 14[[vol. 4, p. 225]] Oct. 1668, Hannah, d. of Nicholas Clap of Dorchester, had Hannah, b. 7 Oct. 1669; Ebenezer, 2 Aug. 1671; Nathaniel 25 Sept. 1673; Sarah, 29 Sept. wh. d. 19 Dec. 1675; Preserved, Sept. 1679, d. next Aug.; Sarah, again, 29 Sept. 1681; Jonathan, 1 May 1683; Noah, 18 Oct. 1684, d. under 15 yrs; and tw. without names, wh. d. prob. in few hours, 3 Oct. 1689. He took the o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, with his f. and three brs. and was freem. 1683, ch. elder oft. call. deac.; and d. 11 Feb. 1729, aged 86. Thro. his s. Jonathan is the line of Caleb, Gov. of Mass. deriv. JACOB, Windsor, s. of the sec. John, m. 10 Nov. 1698, Abigail, d. of Nathaniel Bissell of the same, and d. 25 Mar. 1749, nearly 76 yrs. old. It is prob. he had ch. but their names are unkn.
JEDEDIAH, Northampton, third s. of Elder John, m. 18 Nov. 1662, Freedom, d. of Henry Woodward, of the same, had Elizabeth b. 9 June 1664; Abigail, 9 July 1666, d. prob. 15 July 1689; Jedediah, 7 Aug. 1667; Ford, 2 Sept. d. 1 Nov. 1668; one, without name 11 Oct. 1669, d. very soon; Hannah, 3 Feb. 1671; Thankful, 15 Apr. 1672; John, 15 Nov. 1673, d. same mo.; Lydia, 9 Nov. 1675; Mary, May 1677; Experience, 19 Aug. 1678, d. 16 Sept. foll.; Preserved, 29 Mar. 1680; and John, 10 May 1681; his w. d. 17 of the same mo. He m. 28 Dec. foll. Abigail, wid. of John Stebbins of N. d. of Robert Bartlett, had Mary, 1683; and his w. d. July 1689. He m. 5 Jan. 1692, Mary, wid. of John Lee of Farmington, for third w. and took the of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, and was adm. freem. 1690, but his w. Mary being k. 9 Oct. 1710, by fall of her horse, he late in life rem. to Coventry; and there d. 22 May 1733, not in his 96th yr. prob. as said. JERIJAH, Northampton, youngest of the sixteen ch. of Elder John, m. 18 July 1700, Thankful, youngest d. of John Stebbins of the same, had Jerijah, b. 8 Sept. 1701, d. soon; Thankful, 26 Aug. 1702; Jerijah, again, 14 May 1705; Eunice, 10 Sept. 1707; Ithamar, 24 June 1710, d. next yr.; and Ithamar, again, 8 Aug. 1713, d. next yr.; Seth, 4 Apr. 1716; and Bela, 4 Oct. 1719; and his w. d. 24 1744, aged 66; and Cothern says, he d. 24 Apr. 1754.
JOHN, Hingham 1635, among first proprs. wh. drew ho. lots Sept. of that yr. freem. Mar. 1637, next yr. was of Taunton, and count. there as one of the first proprs. made freem. of that juridict. 4 Dec. chos. rep. 1641, 2, 3, and 4, as Baylies shows II. 2 and 3, and a juror 1645; three or four yrs. aft. is found a Windsor, and made freem. of Conn. May 1651, unless this were his s. wh. seems very improb. and soon aft. 1661 was inhab. of Northampton. With very gr. doubts as to most of the items, and utter reject. of part most import. in tradit. report. of his com. in the Mary and John to Dorchester with Warham in May 1630, and of the d. of his first w. on the pass. and tak. a sec. w. in 1630, I think it prob. that he brot. John in 1635, and at [[vol. 4, p. 226]] Hingham had Thomas, possib. also ano. ch. wh. d. inf. and that his w. d. there, and that he m. perhaps in 1638, Abigail, d. of Thomas Ford of Dorchester, for in that single yr. is the only ment. of his name as resid. at D. had prob. at Taunton Jedediah, bapt. 14 Apr. 1639, at D. tho. the ch. rec. implies, that the parents liv. at H. Return; Ebenezer; and Abigail; at Windsor, certain. had Elizabeth b. 24 Aug. 1647, or 24 Feb. 1648; Experience, 4 Aug. 1650; Samuel, and Joseph, perhaps sometimes call. Josiah, tw. 5 Aug. 1652; Mary, 26 Oct. 1654. At W. he m. 26 Nov. 1656, Mary, only d. of Joseph Clark; had Sarah not on rec. perhaps 1657; Hannah, 30 May 1659; and Esther, 7 June 1661; at Northampton had Thankful, 25 July 1663; and Jerijah, 12 Dec. 1665.
Cothren favors him with three more ch. one wh. d. inf. two mos. aft. arr. of f. in 1630; Josiah, wh. d. young, unm. but I distrust the exist. of both; and Sarah, wh. m. 19 Dec. 1675, or 13 Jan. foll. (either of wh. may be thot. more prob. date, than that of fam. tradit. 13 July 1675) Joseph Barnard of Hadley, and next, 1698, Capt. Jonathan Wells of Deerfield. She may have come betw. Mary and Hannah. On the high authority of Dr. Allen I can find but sixteen ch. beside the inf. wh. d. He was, very likely, b. at Taunton in Co. Somerset, and his f. may have been Richard, and his sis. Elinor may have been w. of Walter Dean; but that he ever liv. at Dorchester is highly improb. for Harris, or any more search. inquirer has not found his name there, bef. or aft. 1638, exc. once was witness to a deed, wh. may have been writ. at Hingham; and it is hardly to be believ. that the same w. wh. bore the two ch. at N. had been taken at D. in 1630. That he was indeed ever resid. at D. aft. 1638, can be surmis. from the trifling incident only, that John Hill was m. at Boston 16 Jan. 1657 to Elizabeth Strong by Humphrey Atherton, the Assist. wh. was a Dorchester man. Nor is it more prob. as the tradit. ornaments the story, that he came from Eng. with Warham or accomp. him in 1636 to W. Hitchcock, Parsons, Cothren, Geneal. Reg. VIII. 180, and Emery too easily adm. such relat. in my opin. that relies on the powerful contempo. silence of his br.-in-law, Roger Clap, wh. did come in that sh. and m. a d. of his fellow passeng. Thomas Ford. For the modern origin of these improb. tradit. I presume that, as the ancest. was at Windsor, within twelve yrs. of its settlem. and a s. of this m. a Warham, and as Ford rem. with W. to Windsor the story spread grad. that he had come from Eng. to Dorchester, with W. and accomp. him to his next home in Conn. but the reporters did not consider two points, that many people were of Dorchester, wh. did not come with Warham, and many of Windsor, wh. did not come from Dorchester. In McClure's acco. of sett. of Windsor, writ. in 1797, pr. 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. V. 167, is seen the list of the sixteen male mem. of the ch. of Dorchester that [[vol. 4, p. 227]] went with Warham thither, among wh. is No Strong. As Roger Clap had m. a d. of Ford two or three yrs. bef. the exodus, the d. wh. bec. the sec. w. of Strong, as it seems to me after it, may have contin. at D. to comfort her sis. and avoid the perils of ano. first planting. He was a tanner, one of the pillars at foundat. of ch. Elder 1663, and his w. d. 6 July 1688, and he d. 14 Apr. 1699, aged 91, says his s. Jerijah, wh. in mod. tradit. is easily corrupt to 94.
Beside Sarah, above ment. Abigail m. 12 Nov. 1673, Rev. Nathaniel Chauncy, and 8 Sept. 1686, deac. Medad Pomeroy; Elizabeth m. 17 Mar. or 11 May 1669, Joseph Parsons; Experience m. 27 May 1669, Zerobabel Filer; Mary m. 20 Mar. 1679, John Clark; Hannah m. 15 July 1680, William Clark jr.; Esther m. 15 Oct. 1678, Thomas Bissel, the younger, of Windsor; and Thankful m. a Baldwin of the countless tribes of Milford, as Cothren reports, no doubt from the fam. acco. So there were eight ds. and seven s. of the prosperous tanner, wh. liv. to m. and thirteen of this number were b. to him by the sec. w. Abigail Ford.
JOHN, Windsor, eldest s. of the preced. b. perhaps, in Eng. m. 26 Nov. 1656, Mary Clark, d. of that wid. Frances C. wh. had m. Thomas Dewey, had Mary, b. 22 Apr. 1658; Hannah, 11 Aug. 1660; and his w. d. 28 Apr. 1663, aged 25. He m. sec. w. 1664, Elizabeth Warriner, perhaps d. but (unless the name should be Warner) more prob. sis. of William of Springfield, had John, 25 Dec. 1665; Jacob, 8 Apr. 1673; and Josiah, 11 Jan. 1679, bapt. next day; was freem. 1667; his w. d. 7 June 1684, and he d. 20 Feb. 1698. The five ch. were liv. at the d. of f. Mary m. Timothy Stanley of Farmington; and Hannah m. Stephen Hopkins. JOHN, Windsor, s. of the preced. m. 26 Nov. 1686, Hannah, d. of Joseph Trumbull, it is suppos. had Mary, b. 1688; Elizabeth 1689; Hannah, 1692; Jonathan, 1694; Abigail; Esther, 1699; Sarah; David, 1704; and John, 1707; and his w. Mary prob. 2d d. 4 July 1747. He d. 29 May 1749. JOSIAH, Windsor, br. of the preced. m. 5 Jan. 1699, Joanna Gillet, d. of Cornelius of the same, had Joanna, 1699; John, 1701; Damaris, 1703; and prob. others.
RETURN, Windsor, younger br. of the preced. a tanner, freem. 1666, m. 11 May 1664, Sarah Warham, d. of Rev. John, had Sarah, b. 14 Mar. 1665; Abigail, 8 Mar. 1667; Return, 10 Feb. 1669; Elizabeth 20 Feb. 1671; Samuel, 20 May 1673, d. soon; Damaris, 3 July 1674; Samuel, again 27 Dec. 1675; and his w. d. 26 Dec. 1678, aged 36. He m. 23 May 1689, Margaret Newbury, d. of Maj. Benjamin, had Joseph, b. 1694, d. young; Hannah; Margaret, 1700; and Benjamin, 1703. He had large est. and d. 9 Apr. 1726; in his will, of 1719, he names the liv. s. Samuel and Benjamin, six ds. and also the childr. of s. Return wh. had dec. 1708. Both John and Return are in the list of freem. 1669, and the latter was one of the returning officers.
SAMUEL, [[vol. 4, p. 228]] Northampton, br. of the preced. took o. of alleg. with his f. three brs. and a neph. 8 Feb. 1679, m. 19 June 1684, Esther, d. of deac. Edward Clap, had Esther, b. at Dorchester 30 Apr. 1685; Samuel, 21 Jan. 1687, wh. was k. by the Ind. 10 Aug. 1711, when his f. was tak. by them, and carr. to Canada; Susanna, 26 Feb. 1688; Abigail; 1 Jan. 1689, d. very soon; Abigail, again, 23 Nov. 1690; Christian, 1 Mar. 1693, d. soon; Nehemiah, a. 1694, f. of the Hon. Simeon, one of the S. J. C. Judges; Ezra, 14 Oct. 1697. His w. d. 26 Jan. 1698, and he m. 28 Oct. foll. Ruth, wid. of Joseph Wright, d. Isaac Sheldon, and had Mary, 19 May 1701; Joseph, 9 May 1703, d. at two yrs; Josiah, 17 Aug. 1705; and Samuel, again, 11 Feb. 1712; prob. bef. his ret. from captiv. He d. 29 Oct. 1732, in his will of 1728 names only Nehemiah, Ezra, Josiah and Samuel, beside four ds. Esther White, Susanna Lane, Abigail Church, and Mary Edwards.
THOMAS, Northampton, an elder br. of the preced. was a trooper in 1658 at Windsor, under com. of Maj. Mason, m. 5 Dec. 1660, Mary, d. of Rev. Ephraim Hewett, had Thomas, b. 16 Nov. 1661; Maria, 31 Aug. 1663; John, 9 Mar. 1665, wh. d. 21 May 1699, unm.; Hewett, 2 Dec. 1666, wh. d. under 23 yrs.; Asahel, 14 Nov. 1668; Joseph, 2 Dec. 1672; Benjamin, 1674; Adino, 12 or more prob. 25 Jan. 1676; Waitstill, 1677 or 8 ; Rachel, 15 July 1679; Selah, 22 Dec. 1680; Benajah, 24 Sept. 1682; Ephraim, 4 Jan. 1685; Elnathan, 20 Aug. 1688; Ruth, 4 Feb. 1688; and Submit, posthum. 23 Feb. 1690; but the last eleven were by sec. w. His first d. 20 Feb. 1671, and he m. 10 Oct. foll. Rachel, d. of deac. William Holton. He with his s. Thomas took the o. of alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, and he d. 3 Oct. 1689; his wid. m. 16 May 1698, Nathan Bradley. From this branch, thro. the eleventh s. Elnathan are deriv. in Conn. famous Doctors in Divinity; and in that state the fam. is wide distrib. Ano. Hewitt d. 25 Mar. 1694; and Azariah, and Esther are found among the early deaths, if the rec. is correct, whose f. is uncert. Of this fam. name Farmer notes, in MS. thirty-nine had been gr. in 1834, at Yale, three at Harv. and twenty-three at other N. E. coll.
STROUD, ROBERT, Boston, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 11 Oct. 1659.

Elizabeth had John, b. 8 Dec. 1659; and Benjamin, 23 May 1661. Perhaps he rem.
STUKELEY, JOHN, a soldier under Capt. William Turner in 1676, perhaps s. of Thomas. THOMAS, Suffield, freem. 1681.
STURGIS, or STURGES, EDWARD, Charlestown 1634, but tho. he was resid. there at least two yrs. he was not of the ch. rem. in few yrs. to Yarmouth, where he was count. 1643, able to bear arms, and had address. with others in Apr. 1639 to the Gov. had Mary, bapt. at Barnstable, 1 June 1646; Elizabeth b. at Y. 20 Apr. 1648, Joseph, bur. 16 Apr. 1650, few days old. Prob. he had other ch. and perhaps one was Edward, and one of his s. may have m. Mary, d. of Capt. William Hedge, nam. in his will. JOHN, Fairfield 1660, adm. freem. 1668, was next yr. a selectman, in 1679 gave ld. to his s. Jonathan; and wide has been, prob. the circulat. of his progeny. No exact account, however, is accessib. David, Eleazer, John jr. and Peter are found in 1691, of wh. some but not perhaps all, were gr. ch. His d. Deborah m. James Redfield. JOHN, Rhode Il. 1672.
JOSEPH, Yarmouth 1650, perhaps s. of Edward. JOSEPH, Fairfield, prob. s. of John first of the same, is nam. 1679. PETER, Fairfield, br. of the preced. SAMULE, Barnstable, m. 14 Oct. 1697, wid. Mary Orris, whose h.

Perhaps he was s. of Edward. It is vexatious to be unable to supply better acco. of a name so disting. in N. E. Always in Conn. the spelling is Sturges; and eight are gr. at Yale, five at Harv.
STURTEVANT, or STURDEVANT, JOHN, Plymouth, perhaps br. of Samuel, more prob. his s. m. Hannah, wid. of William Crow, d. of Josiah Winslow the first. SAMUEL, Plymouth 1643, had Ann, b. 4 June 1647; [[vol. 4, p. 230]] John, 17 Oct. 1650, d. soon; Samuel, 19 Apr. 1654; Hannah, 4 Sept. 1656; John, again, 6 Sept. 1658; James, 11 Feb. 1660; and Joseph, 16 July 1666; beside Mary, 7 Dec. 1651; and Lydia, 13 Dec. 1660; of wh.

Descend. have been very num. but no acco. is obtain. of the respective ch. James, it is said , d. 1756, leav. s. Caleb. See Geneal. Reg. VI. 211. WILLIAM, Norwalk, had John, b. 20 July 1676; and Sarah, 9 Apr. 1678. No more is found in Hall's Hist.
STUTCH, JOHN, if the rec. may be suffic. authty. for such a name, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1662. My refer. is lost.
STYCHE, HENRY, Lynn, was an efficient workman at the iron foundry in 1653, and was then 103 yrs. of age, as Lewis in Hist. of Lynn, Ed. 2, p. 143 asserts; and he adds: "How many yrs. longer he liv. history has not inform. us." That remark may raise a doubt in the mind of any reader, even if the writer be not thot. to distrust the marvel. Yet in the first Ed. I think the age was call. 102. Lamenta. that the line was not perpet. wd. be unavailing and perhaps unwise.
SUCKLING, or SUCKLIN, THOMAS, Hingham, came with Francis James, as one of his serv. in the Diligent, 1638. Lincoln, Centen. Addr. 44. He was of Providence 1646, and on freem 's. list 1655, tho. not adm. bef. May 1658, engag. his alleg. to Charles II. June 1668.
SUMERTON, JOB, in Essex Inst. Coll. III. 50, but in Index Summerton, I must feel, is mispr. for Swinerton.
SUMMERS, HENRY, Woburn, m. 21 Nov. 1660, Rachel Reed. His wid. d. 15 June, 1690, and in Apr. of that yr. Henry, perhaps his s. of W. was adm. freem. JOHN, perhaps of Duxbury, m. Mary Sampson, d. of Henry, prob. bef. 1680.

His w. d. 7 June 1676, it is report. and he perhaps d. Mar. 1692, aged a. 86. He is thot. to have been only ch. of Roger of Bicester in Co. Oxford, 12 ms. from the city of O. and could only be two yrs. old when his f. made nuncup. will 3 Dec. 1608, pro. 22 Mar. foll. as set out in Geneal. Reg. IX. 300.

Clement, in his will, refers to seven; and Mercy, Jan. 1675; but the last eight were, no doubt, b. in B. where his busines drew him, and he d. soon aft. the latest b. Elizabeth m. Joshua Henshaw; Mary m. 19 Jan. 1672, Nicholas Howe. On 4 May 1687, divis. of his prop. among the ch. shows, that one d. had m. Thomas Gould, prob. ano. perhaps Hannah, m. John Goffe; and ano. m. Thomas Pratt. Yet in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 128 f. where this suppos. appears, the dilig. inq. says, that Elizabeth m.

SUNDERLAND, SUNDERLINE, or SYNDERLAND, JOHN, Boston, [[vol. 4, p. 233]] parchment maker, as in deeds he styl. hims adm. of our ch. 9 Apr. 1643, as was Dorothy, his w. 4 Apr. 1646; was sw. freem. 10 May foll. his adm. (tho. on Col. rec. spelt Sanderbant) had John, b. says the rec. Dec. 1640, bapt. 16 Apr. 1643, a. 2 and a half yrs. old; and Mary, the rec. says, 12 Mar. 1642, bapt. at same time, a. one yr. and six wks.; Hannah, 29 Sept. 1644, tho. rec. of her b. Oct. aft. is found; James b. 18, bapt. 21 Mar. 1647, d. soon; James, again, bapt. 6 Aug. 1648; Benjamin, 26 July 1652; and his w. d. 29 Jan. 1664. By w. Thomasine, d. of William Lumpkin, wid. of Samuel Mayo, he had Mary, b. 15 July 1665; and Samuel, 14 Apr. 1668. He was of ar. co. 1658, but had fallen into pov. and in 1672 made convey. of his goods to John Vial in tr. for Mary w. of his s. and d. of Vial, and her childr. His d. Mary the first m. 29 Nov. 1656, Jonathan Rainsford. He rem. to Eastham, there d. in his 85th yr. 26 Dec. 1703. His wid. d. at E. 16 June 1709 in 84th yr. His will of 27 Sept. 1700, pro. 4 Apr. 1704, provides for wid. and her ds. Mary Bangs; Sarah Freeman; and Mercy Sears; but I do not discov. the hs. of either, tho. perhaps the last was w. of Silas. JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 26 Jan. 1659, Mary, d. of John Vial, had John b. 22 Jan. 1661; Dorothy, 7 Apr. 1664; and Nathaniel, 17 Nov. 1667.
SUSSELL, RICHARD, rec. as freem. 1653, at Portsmouth R. I. as by the print. Vol. I. 263, and repeat. 300, of R. I. Col. Rec. appears, is by me conject. to be the same man, whose controv. relat. to a m. with Abigail Davis, in 1656, may be seen in Ib. 349, 59,60, and 5. Yet Ussell may seem as wilful a pervers. as the other.
