TAY, or TOY, HENRY, Ipswich, d. a. 1655; and no more is kn. to Felt. *ISAIAH, Boston, s. of William of the same, serv. in Philip's war, was rep. in 1700, and oft. aft. JEREMIAH, Boston, br. of the preced. by w. Mercy had Jeremiah, b. 19 Jan. 1685, d. young; Woodward, 12 Feb. 1687; William, 16 June 1689; Jeremiah, again, 30 Oct. 1693; Isaiah, 5 Sept. 1696; and Mercy, 5 July 1703. JOHN, Boston, had been here but short time when he made his will, wh. is one of the first three in our Vol. I. pro. 7 Dec. 1641, refer. to s. Allen in Eng. wh. prob. never came. He was, I judge, a trader, as he speaks of goods remain. beside beq. of money and especial. of trees, no doubt fruit trees, as in Geneal. Reg. II. 104, may be read. 

NATHANIEL, Billerica 1679, br. of the preced. m. 30 May 1677, Bathsheba, d. of John Wyman. WILLIAM, Boston, in July 1643, gave Leonard Buttels two acres on Long Isl. and rec. from him 20 acres in Muddy riv. and in mid. life was distiller, m. 14 Sept. 1644, Grace, d. of Abraham Newell, at Roxbury, had Grace, b. 23 Aug. 1645; John, bapt. at B. 21 Nov. 1647, being 5 days old; Isaiah, 4, bapt. 10 Mar. 1650; Abiel, 21, bapt. 23 Jan. 1653; Nathaniel, 23, bapt. Peter. on 25 (if the ch. rec. is good) Feb. 1655; Jeremiah, 18, bapt. 19 July 1657; and Elizabeth 25 June, bapt. 1 July 1660; had est. Billerica 1659, liv. there few yrs. and one yr. was town clk. was freem. 1663, not as Farmer made it 1650, with a supposit. s. of the same name. His will, of [[vol. 4, p. 259]] 28 Apr. 1680, pro 12 Apr. 1683, calls hims. 72 yrs. old, makes w. Grace sole excor. gives Jeremiah and Elizabeth the ground "that the house was burnt on," in the fire of 1679, I suppose; but they are charg. to pay L10 to his gr.d. Elizabeth T. at age of 18, or m. "that is my eldest son's d." and of est. at Billerica devises housing to Nathaniel, some to d. Grace Meade of Billerica, whose h. is not of my acquanint. and some to s. Isiah, beside some in Boston. The wid. d. at Roxbury 11 Apr. 1712, aged 91 yrs. His eldest s. f. of Elizabeth whose mo.'s name is not within my guess, was dec. as my be infer.

TAYLOR, TAYLOUR, or TAILER, ABRAHAM, Haverhill, in his will of 1673 names w. Hannah. ABRAHAM, Concord, freem. 1690. ANTHONY, Hampton 1644, feltmaker, rem. to Dover, there was 1671; and is said to have d. 4 Nov. 1687, aged 80; but in 1678 one Anthony perhaps his s. sw. alleg. and certain. had s. John, and tradit. gives him Lydia, wh. m. 23 Mar. 1666, John Moulton, beside Martha, wh. m. 25 Sept. 1667, Hezron Leavitt. CLEMENT, Dorchester, owes his being to Farmer under introduct. of Harris, the creat. being due in the highest prob. to the same bad writ. or ill read. as made Tapley out of Topliff. DANIEL, Saybrook 1689. EDWARD, Lynn 1639, freem. 1648, rem. to Reading and d. 1694. EDWARD, Providence, by w. Hannah had Edward, b. 8 Oct. 1655. 

EDWARD, Barnstable, m. 19 Feb. 1664, Mary Merks, had Ann, b. 11 Dec. 1664; Judith, 12 Dec. 1666, d. soon; Isaac, 3 Jan. 1669; Jacob, 19 Apr. 1670; Experience, June 1672; Mary, 15 Sept. 1675; Sarah, 6 Oct. 1678; John, 6 Sept. 1680; Abraham, 7 Feb. 1684; and Mehitable, 3 Oct. 1688. His w. d. Nov. 1701, and he d. 15 Feb. 1705. EDWARD, Westfield, b. 1642, at Sketchley Co. Leicester, near Hinckley, (no Sketelby, as Farmer prob. from some descend, had giv. and as reverent. repeat. in Geneal. Reg. II. 395) came 1668, arr. at Boston 5 July, and was gr. at H. C. 1671, and late in that yr. went by invit. to W. a new plana. m. 5 Sept. 1674, Elizabeth d. of Rev. James Fitch of Norwich, had Samuel, b. 1675; Elizabeth 1676, d. soon; James, 1678, Abigail, 1681, d. young; Bathsheba, 1683; Elizabeth again, 1684, d. soon; Mary, 1686, d. young; and Hezekiah, 1687, d. young.

He had preach. some yrs. there bef. he was ord. 27 Aug. 1679, was freem. 1678, or 1680, for his name is in both lists, and d. 29 June 1729. His wid. d. Jan. foll. Bathshua or Bathsheba m. 18 Feb. 1702, John Pynchon; Ruth m. 1713, Rev. Benjamin Cotton; Naomi m. 1720. Rev. Ebenezer Devotion; Ann m. 1720, Rev. Benjamin Lord; Mehitable m. Rev.

GEORGE, Lynn, came in the Truelove, late in 1635, aged 31, freem. 2 May 1638, may be the man wh. bec. insane, there, 1640, as Winthrop II. 21 tells; yet he prob. was in short time restor. for in Nov. 1663, his neighb. Rootens made him one of the overseers of his will; and d. 28 Dec. 1667. 

GEORGE, Scarborough, submit. to Mass. jurisdict. July 1658, had been there from 1636, and was liv. 1681. GREGORY, Watertown, an orig. propr. freem. 14 May 1634, constable 1642, by w. Achsa, says Bond, had Samuel, b. Apr. 1632, d. soon; and ano. s. 11 Mar. 1643, to wh. Bond, 601, gives a name, Seabred, that must be read wrong, in my opin. at least it is wrong as s. of Gregory, if right of Thomas. He soon aft. sold his lds. and is found at Stamford to d. 24 Sept. 1657. His w. d. 18 Aug. 1667, and no heir appear. to take the little prop. the Court allow. it to John Waterbury and his w. HENRY, Portsmouth 1640, was in 1648 brot. to prison at Boston, d. 1649. HENRY, Barnstable, m. 19 Dec. 1650, Lydia Hatch, prob. d. of William, or Thomas, of the same, had Lydia, b. 21 June 1655; and Jonathan, 20 Apr. 1658. HENRY, Boston, a surgeon, freem. 1665, by w. Mary had Hannah, b. 7 July 1665; John, 4 Aug. 1666; Mary, 6 June 1668; and Henry, 12 Oct. 1670; was one of the gr. body of petnrs. in 1666 to prevent quarrel with the governm. in Eng. [See 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 103.] ISAAC, Boston, by w. Sarah had John, b. 16 Jan. 1692. 

ISAAC, Scituate, as Deane thot. came from Concord a. 1686, had Isaac, bapt. 1693; Mary, 1696; Jonathan, 1698; and David, 1700. JAMES, Concord, m. 1641, Isabel, or Elizabeth Tompkins, had, says Shattuck, sev. ch. of wh. by my inq. I kn. only Samuel, b. 21 June 1656; Thomas, 12 July 1659, d. in few mos. and he perhaps rem. to Marlborough bef. 1675, and may have been by the Ind. hostil, driv. in to Cambridge, there by w. Sarah had William b. 21 Aug. 1676; perhaps went again to Concord, there d. 22 Jan. 1690. JAMES, Springfield, m. 17 Jan 1668, Mary, d. of Jonathan Taylor, had Rebecca, b. 18 Nov. 1668, d. in few wks.; James, 26 Nov. 1669; Mary, 28 Dec. 1671; John, 14 Mar. 1673, d. soon; Samuel, 26 Sept. 1674, d. young; Elizabeth 5 Jan. 1678; Jonathan, 30 Oct. 1679; Ebenezer, 26 Aug. 1681, d. young; Thomas, b. at Suffield, 16 Jan. 1684, and d. at S. aged 19 yrs.; Samuel. 6 Apr. 1686; and Rebecca, 12 July 1689. Whence he came, wh. was his f. or when he d. is unkn. but he had been a serv. of John [[vol. 4, p. 261]] Pynchon. 

JAMES, New Haven, a propr. 1685, of wh. no more is heard. JAMES, Reading, may have been that surveyor, much employ. in 1671 and 2, d. at R. 1703. *JAMES, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 24 Oct. 1674; perhaps is the same wh. by w. Rebecca had Samuel, 5 Dec. 1687; Abigail, 2 Aug; 1690; Ann, 13 Nov. 1692; Sarah, 19 May 1695; William, 19 June 1696; Mercy, 13 Nov. 1700; and Mary, 15 July 1702; and prob. also, was rep. 1689, 93 and 4. JASPER, Barnstable, m. 6 Nov. 1668, Hannah, d. of Edward Fitzrandle of the same, had John, b. 29 Jan. 1670, d. soon; Mercy, 6 Nov. 1671; Hope, 24 Oct. 1674; Seth, 5 Sept. 1677; John, 24 Mar. 1680; Elinor, 6 Apr. 1682, d. in few days; and Jasper, 29 Apr. 1684. JOHN, Lynn, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop desir. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and was sw. 18 May foll. Lewis tells, that he was from Haverhill, Co. Suffk. and that his w. and ch. d. on the passage. 

JOHN, Windsor 1640, but is not kn. to have ever been at Dorchester, was in esteem 1644, and no later is any ment. found, so that he may have had w. and ch. and rem. to some uncert. place. A Rhoda T. at W. 1659, had seat in the meeting ho. and may be thot. his wid. or ch. An Amos T. d. at Windsor, 1644; and Hannah d. there 1650, wh. may have been his ch. or possib. of Stephen. JOHN, Weymouth, in his will of 6 Jan. pro. 22 May 1668, names w. Rebecca, d. Rebecca, w. I suppose, of Richard Gurney, and s. John wh. is made excor. JOHN, Cambridge 1644, freem. 1651, by w. Catharine had Joseph, bapt. at C. H. C. 1669; d. 6 Sept. 1683, fill. the office of butler and was a faithf. serv. of H. C. a. 40 yrs. says the gr.-stone. JOHN, Damariscove 1651, by Sullivan, 287, is found there in 1665. 

JOHN, Weymouth, prob. s. of John of the same, by w. Phebe, I presume d. of the wid. Ann Rockwood, had Mary, b. 18 May 1660; John, 10 Apr. 1666; and perhaps rem. to Braintree. JOHN, Ipswich, a soldier, k. in the gr. battle with Philip, 19 Dec. 1675. JOHN, Salem 1671, a joiner, may have been s. of Richard of Boston, and rem. to Boston, there by w. Rebecca had John, b. 22 Nov. 1674; William, 21 May 1676; and Elizabeth 1680; but I discov. nothing more. JOHN, Hampton, took the o. of alleg. 25 Apr. 1678; and later in the same yr. ano. 

JOHN of Hampton was equal. patriot. One of the two, I suppose, by w. Deborah had Mary, b. 3 May 1687. JOHN, Hadley, m. 12 Dec. 1666, Mary, d. of the first Thomas Selden, sw. alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, as did John of Northampton on the same day and this latter better kept his word in becom. freem. 1683. He may have been s. of John of Windsor, and certain. m. 18 Dec. 1662, Thankful, d. of Henry Woodward, had Thankful, b. 29 Oct. 1663; Joanna, 27 Sept. 1665; John, 10 Oct. 1667; Rhoda, 26 Sept. 1669; Elizabeth 13 Jan. 1672, d. at 9 yrs.; Mary, 13 Oct. 1673; Jonathan, 19 Sept. 1675; Mindwell, 19 Aug. 1677; Lydia, 18 Mar. 1679; Thomas, 4 Nov. 1680; Elizabeth again, 17 Sept. 1682; Experience, Oct. 1684; and Samuel, [[vol. 4, p. 262]] 30 Aug. 1688; was a very val. citiz. capt. of the troop of Hampsh. k. by the Ind. 13 May 1704, then in pursuit of them aft. their destruct. of Pascomuck. The wid. liv. with s. John at Norwalk 1724. But of the Hadley John my acco. is equal. good; as that he had Esther, b. 9 Dec. 1667; John, 6 Jan. 1670; Thomas, 5 June 1672; Stephen, 1674; Mary, 12 Oct. 1676, d. young; Thankful, 1680; Jacob, 1685; Samuel, 3 Dec. 1688; and Ebenezer, 1 Mar. 1697. 

JOHN, Yarmouth, s. of Richard first of the same, m. 15 Dec. 1674, Sarah Matthews, had Samuel, b. 14 Dec. 1675; and John, 15 June 1678. JOHN, Suffield, s. of Stephen the first m. 25 Sept. 1682, Sarah Younglove, d. of John, had Benoni, b. 15 June 1683, d. in few days, as had the mo. in four days. He m. again, 24 Mar. 1686, Elizabeth Spencer, d. of Thomas of S. and had John, 17 Jan. 1687; Nathaniel, 20 May 1688; rem. to Windsor, and had Samuel, 11 Apr. 1691; Elizabeth 11 Nov. 1694; and Ebenezer, 11 Sept. 1697; as Stiles, in Hist. of W. 812, gives the last three suspicious days. The time of the dec. is unkn. JOHN, Charlestown, by w. Catharine had Richard, aged 3, and John, 1, when both were bapt. 6 Oct. 1689; Thomas, 24 July 1692; Catharine, 18 Nov. 1694; and Sarah, 31 Jan. 1697. JONATHAN, Springfield 1649, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 1 Aug. of that yr. wh. m. 17 Jan. 1668, James Taylor; Ann, 6 Apr. 1651, d. in few days; Samuel, 8 Sept. 1652; Jonathan, 11 Mar. 1655; Rebecca, 4 July 1657, d. at 11 yrs. and Thomas 9 Aug. 1660. His w. d. 9 Sept. 1683; and he d. in few wks. aft. at Suffield, prob. on visit to his s. He took o. of alleg. 31 Dec. 1678, or the next day, as did, also, Jonathan his s. wh. m. 11 July preced. Sarah, d. of William Brooks of Springfield, had b. at Suffield, Sarah, 23 Jan. 1682; Mary, 3 May 1684; and Mercy, 6 Sept. 1686; and perhaps more. He was deac. at Suffield. JOSEPH, Fairfield, sold ld. there 1667. 

JOSEPH, Southampton, L. I. s. of John of Cambridge, was sometimes fellow of the Coll. ord. Mar. 1680, as success. to Rev. Robert Fordham, had liv. at New Haven, where was b. his s. John, 5 Oct. 1678; may have had w. of that place; and d. 4 Apr. 1682, leav. John, and Joseph, wh. sold in 1702 the est. at Cambridge of their gr.f. JOSEPH, Exeter, sw. alleg. Nov. 1677. JOSEPH, Marshfield, youngest s. of Richard of Yarmouth, m. 25 Apr. 1684, Experience Williamson. 

JOSEPH, Boston, by w. Thomasin had Mary, b. 30 Oct. 1686. NATHANIEL, Windsor, m. 17 Oct. 1678, Abigail, d. of Thomas Bissell, had Hezekiah, b. 23 Aug. 1679. PHILIP, freem. of Mass. 18 May 1642 may have been br. of Richard, wh. in the list stands next bef. him, but I am not able to say more, than that he was of ano. ch. than that of Boston. RICHARD, Boston, br. perhaps of the preced. join. our ch. 1 Jan. 1642, then "a single man and a tailor," was adm. freem. 18 May foll. by w. Mary had John, b. 2, bapt. 6 Feb. 1647; d. 1673. His will of 30 July pro. 2 Aug. of that yr. [[vol. 4, p. 263]] names no ch. but John, sis. Joan in Eng. and w. Elizabeth.

RICHARD, Charlestown, but a mem. of some other ch. when adm. freem. 18 May 1642, the same day with Boston Richard, d. 10 July 1659, of wh. I learn nothing but from his will, made 6 May bef. that his w. was Ann, and he had d. Frances Adams. RICHARD, Yarmouth 1643, m. says the fam. tradit. a Burgess, perhaps d. of Thomas, whose d. Ruth, also, m. ano. Richard T. His w. was drown. 4 Dec. 1673, and he d. next yr. leav. two s. six ds. John; Joseph; Mary; Martha, b. 18 Dec. 1650; Elizabeth; Ann, bur. 29 Mar. 1650 aged a yr. and a half; Hannah, and Sarah, of wh. this last d. num. 3 July 1695; Mary m. a Merchant; Martha m. 3 Dec. 1675, Joseph Bearse; Ann m. 25 June 1679, Josiah Davis; Hannah m. 19 July 1680, Job Crocker; and Elizabeth m. 20 Dec. 1680, Samuel Cobb. 

RICHARD, Yarmouth, farmer, call, says tradit. rock Richard, from his first build. his cottage against a rock, m. a. 1646, Ruth Burgess, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Ruth, b. 29 July 1647, bur. next yr.; Ann, 2 Dec. 1648; Ruth, again, 11 Apr. 1650; Richard, 9 Jan. 1652; Mehitable, 23 July 1654; Keziah, 18 Feb. 1656; Joshua, 9 May 1659; Hannah, 17 Sept. 1661; Elisha, 10 Feb. 1664; and Mary, 12 June 1667; his w. d. 22 June 1693, and he d. 1 Aug. 1703. RICHARD, Charlestown, by w. Ann wh. join. the ch. 17 Sept. 1665, had Sarah, bapt. on Sunday foll.; Ann, 12 Jan. 1667; perhaps Thomas, 16 Apr. 1670; Richard, 16 Nov. 1673; and Alice, 2 Apr. 1676, was one of the tything men 1679. RICHARD, Yarmouth, s. of the sec. Richard of the same, serv. in the war against Philip, had Isaac, Joshua, Nathan, Ebenezer, and two ds. ROBERT, Newport, found by Dr. Stiles in the list of freem. 1655, m. Nov. 1646, Mary Hodges, whose f. is not found by me, had Mary, b. Nov. 1647; Ann, 10 Feb. 1650; Margaret, 30 Jan. 1652; Robert, Oct. 1653; John, June 1657; and Peter, July 1661. 

ROBERT, Boston, by w. Sarah had James, b. 17 Jan. 1661. SAMUEL, Ipswich 1648, had been ment. 1638, but never with indicat. of a fam. No w. or ch. is heard of, when at the age of 81 his will was pro. 29 June 1695, in wh. his ho. and ld. are devis. to Samuel Treadwell, perhaps a cous. as he calls Thomas, and Nathaniel Treadwell, Thomas, and Seaborn Wilson, Mary Gains, Esther Hovey, and Martha Cross. SAMUEL, Windsor, had, as Parsons in Geneal, Reg. V. 365, quotes rec. d. Martha, wh. at the age of 20, m. 30 Oct. 1679, Josiah Ellsworth. But his is a sad mistake of Taylor for Gaylord. 

SAMUEL, Springfield, wh. sw. alleg. there 31 Dec. 1678, or next day, maybe s. of Stephen of Windsor, was a blacksmith at Westfield, by w. Mary had a ch. b. 3 May 1672, d. in few days; Mary, 14 Dec. 1673, d. young; Mary, again, 1675, d. young; Samuel, 1677, d. young; a s. 30 Sept. 1679, d. in few wks.; Joseph, 1 May 1681, d. young; Elizabeth 10 Mar. 1683, d. soon; Elizabeth again, 27 July 1684; [[vol. 4, p. 264]] Mary, again, 3 Mar. 1687; Sarah, 8 Oct. 1689; Hannah, 25 Aug. 1692; and Joseph, again, 4 Mar. 1694; beside a. d. Mercy, in his will of 1723, nam. as dec. leav. ch. Mercy and Mabel Buck. This list varies slightly from that in Geneal. Reg. VI. 266, but seems to me of authori. His will names only s. Joseph, ds. Mary Bush, Elizabeth Phelps, and Hannah Loomis, beside that Mercy, and Sarah, wh. had m. one of the innumer. tribe of Williams, was dec. leav. only ch. Sarah. SAMUEL, Wethersfield, s. of William of the same, by w. Sarah, m. 1679, had Sarah, b. 1680; William, 1683; Mary, 1685; John, 1688; Margaret, 1693; and Mabel, 1695,

Ruth and the six ch. SAMUEL, Westfield, s. of Rev. Edward, m. 1704, Margaret Mosely, had Elizabeth b. 1705; and Margaret, 1707, d. the same yr. His w. d. 1708, and he d. next yr. SEABRED, Reading, s. of Thomas of Watertown, m. 22 Nov. 1671, Mary, d. of Richard Harrington, was freem. 1677, against wh. I hardly suppose that Farmer design. any imput. when he calls him Sinbred. STEPHEN, Windsor, perhaps br. of the first John of the same, m. 1 Nov. 1642, Sarah Hosford, d. of Rev. William, had Stephen, b. 11 Mar. 1644; Samuel, 8 Oct. 1647; and by sec. w. m. 25 Oct. 1649, Elizabeth Newell, had John, 22 Mar. 1652; Thomas, 5 Oct. 1655; Abigail, 19 Mar. 1657; Mary, 18 June 1661; Mindwell, 5 Nov. 1663; and Nathaniel, 24 May 1668, d. at 14 yrs.; was in the list of freem. Oct. 1669. He d. 1 Sept. 1668, and his wid. d. 5 Aug. foll. acc. one rep. but Stiles says, 14 Dec. 1717. He call. hims. 66 yrs. old in 1684. 

STEPHEN, Hadley, m. at Hartford, Sarah, d. of John White, had only ch. Stephen, and d. 7 Sept. 1665. His wid. m. 15 Oct. 1666, Barnabas Hindsdale, wh. was k. by the Ind. 18 Sept. 1675; and she had third h. Feb. 1679, Walter Hickson. He may have been s. of John of Hartford, but whence he came, is uncert. STEPHEN, Boston, by w. Hannah had Hannah, b. 2 July 1668. STEPHEN, Suffield, s. of the first Stephen, m. 8 Nov. 1676, Joanna Porter of Farmington, prob. d. of Thomas, had Sarah, b. 16 July 1679; Joanna, 28 Mar. 1682; rem. to Windsor, had there Stephen, 9 May 1685; Stephen, again, 8 May 1688; William, 14 Mar. 1689; and perhaps others, and d. 3 Aug. 1707. THOMAS, Watertown, 1642, by w. Elizabeth had Seabred, b. 11 Mar. 1643; rem. to reading, and d. 1690. 

THOMAS, Norwalk 1666, m. 14 Feb. 1668, Rebecca, d. of Edward Ketchum, had Thomas, b. 26 Nov. 1668; Deborah, June 1671; and prob. others, for the name was long cont. in that town, where he was freem. 1670, but he rem. to Danbury, as one of the early sett. THOMAS, [[vol. 4, p. 265]] Suffield, perhaps s. of the first Stephen, m. 15 June 1678, Abigail, d. of Hugh Roe, had Elizabeth b. 24 July 1679, Abigail, 6 Sept. 1681; Nathaniel, 24 Aug. 1684, d. next yr.; Mabel, 1 Dec. 1685.

The f. of his first w. in leav. her a legacy by his will, declar. that "Thomas Taylor shall have nothing to do with it," and that was caus. by his ill conduct. THOMAS, Springfield, s. of Jonathan of the same, m. 29 Dec. 1687, Mary, d. of John Petty, had Hannah, b. 18 Aug. 1690; and d. at Springfield Apr. 1691. WILLIAM, Lynn 1642. WILLIAM, Wethersfield, by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 1647, perhaps d. soon; John, 1649; Sarah; ano. Samuel; Mary, 1654; William, 1659; Margaret, 1663; Jonathan, 1666; and the seven ch. were liv. 1720. WILLIAM, New London, kn. there, says Caulkins, only 1650 to 3, perhaps was not the freem. 1669 of Wethersfield. 

WILLIAM, Concord, m. Mary Meriam, perhaps d. of Joseph, had John, b. 19 Oct. 1653; Samuel, 3 July 1655, d. in few ds.; Abraham, 14 Nov. 1656; Isaac, 1659; Jacob, 8 May, 1662; Joseph, 1665; and Mary; and Shattuck says, he d. 6 Dec. 1696. WILLIAM, Boston, merch. by w. Rebecca had Elizabeth b. 17 May 1667;' and Thomas, 18 Feb. 1674; was much disting. for active enterpr. but fell into melancholy, and d. by his own hd. 12 July 1682. See Russell's Diary in Geneal. Reg. VII. 53 and Bradstreet's in I b. VIII. 332 or IX. 50. WILLIAM, Scituate, br. of Isaac of the same, and elder, as Deane thot. had Lydia, b. 1688; Elizabeth 1692; and Mary, 1696. Of his name I see 20 gr. at Yale, and 15 at Harv.

TEAD, TEED, or TED, JOHN, Charlestown 1637, emb. 12 May of that yr. at Yarmouth, aged 19, as serv. of Samuel Greenfield of Norwich, but perhaps was not desir. by his master of acomp.him, aft. reach. this side of the ocean, if, as seems prob. he be the person call. Todd, in Frothingham, p. 88, may have rem. aft. 1640 to Woburn,there was one of the true-spirited petnrs. to the Gen. Ct. 30 Aug. 1653 in fav. of liberty of proph. had w. Margaret, wh. d. 1651, and he d. 24 Apr. 1657. By his will made 15 days bef. we find he had sec. w. Alice, and ds. Mary, and Elizabeth beside gr.ch. Benjamin, Hannah, and ano. d. of one Savil; and John and Samuel Savil, of ano. Thomas Fuller, and John Kendall, also a s. of his own name. See Tidd. Yet one of this name was propound. for freem. in 1664, tho. no more heard of. See 4 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 101, and Geneal, Reg. XIV. 328. 

JOSHUA, Charlestown 1637, perhaps br. of the preced. was adm. of the ch. 10 Mar. 1639, and freem. 22 May foll. and his w. Sarah join. the ch. 9 Sept. aft. By the town rec. they had John, b. 15 June 1641; and Joseph, 15 Dec. 1643. In the ch. bapt. wh. suffer. a sad blank for many yrs. aft. 20 Sept. 1642, the name of no [[vol. 4, p. 266]] ch. but the first would be look. for, and that is not seen, so that it may be the ch. d. soon. He was, in 1648, agent for Richard Young, wh. had in London, contrib. to our com. stock, and obt. for him his share of 100 acres of ld. selectman 1660 and 8, lieut. in 1678, on 15 Sept. of wh. yr. he d. aged 71. Oft. it was writ. Tydd, and in mod. days is altogether Tidd.

TEAKE, HENRY, is the misprint in Geneal. Reg. VII. 226, for Feake, Henry, of Lynn.

TEFFE. See Tiffe.

TELL, WILLIAM, Malden, freem. 1690, tho, in my opin. the name is design. for Teal, wh. by w. Mary had Abigail, b. 1 Jan.1686; Benjamin, 2 Nov. 1689; Elizabeth 22 June 1696; Oliver, 19 July 1699; and Rachel, 1 Aug. 1703.

TEMPLAR, TEMPLE or TEMPLER, ABRAHAM, Salem 1637, had Abraham. ABRAHAM, Concord, s. perhaps of the preced. m. 1673, Deborah Hadlock, had Richard, Abigail, Mary, and Joseph; had perhaps rem. to Charlestown, there had a d. b. 1686; but certaiN. was at Concord freem. 1690. ISAAC, Concord, s. of Richard, freem. 1690. JOHN, Boston, freem. 1671, was liv. 1695. RICHARD, Yarmouth, there is in the list of those able to bear arms, 1643, by w. Hannah, d. of Richard Pritchard, had Hannah, b. 5 Jan. 1643; Samuel, 22 Jan. 1648; Esther, bur. 13 Sept. 1649; perhaps James; Deborah, d. 5 Aug. 1657; Deborah, again, bapt. 4 Oct. 1657; beside Richard, 15 Oct. 1656, bapt. 5 July 1663;' but rem. with f. and mo. of his w. to Charlestown, 1660. From ascert. that his wid. m. 10 Apr. 1674, Nathaniel Morton, Secr. of Plymouth Col. I was led to correct the erroneous inference, authorized by Charlestown rec. that the was recent. d. in Mar. 1678, as his ho. is ment. but not the person. She outliv. the dignitary, and d. 26 Dec. 1690, aged 66. In the will of Pritchard, 22 Jan. 1669 are ment. Hannah, w. of R. T. made extrix. and the three ch. By this docum. alone could the confusion of Templar and Temple into wh. Farmer fell, he explained. Deborah m. John Chamberlain of Charlestown, and aft. a Miller. RICHARD, Salem 1644, Charlestown, 1646, there by w. Joanna had Abigail, b. 15 July 1647; Richard, 1654; rem. to concord, had Isaac, 19 June 1657, was freem. 1672. 

RICHARD, Concord, s. of the preced. freem. 1690, by w. Sarah had Richard, b. 1692; and Joseph, 1694; and d. 16 Feb. 1698 or 9. RICHARD, Reading, s. of Robert, m. Deborah, d. of the sec. Thomas Parker of the same, had Josiah, b. 16 Mar. 1695; Thomas, 1 Nov. 1696, d. young; Jonathan, 19 Feb. 1699; Phebe; John, 19 Oct. 1704; Elizabeth 17 Dec. 1706; Jabez, 2 July 1709; Ruth, 1712; Thomas, again, 2 May, 1714; and Ebenezer, 7 May 1716; and d. 28 Nov. 1737, in 70th yr. as gr.stone tells. ROBERT, Saco bef. 1670, perhaps, sev. yrs. [[vol. 4, p. 267]] had Richard, b. a. 1668, and prob. other ch. wh. with their mo. it is thot. on destruct. of the town in 1676, when he was k. by the Ind. were forced to go to Boston for refuge. 

THOMAS, an Eng. knight and baronet, came to Boston, with favor of appoint. by Cromwell to be Gov. of Acadia, in 1657, assoc. with Col. Crowne, as grantee of Nova Scotia, spent many yrs this side of the water, speculat. in the lds. far and near, join the ch. of Increase Mather in June 1670, yet was careful to hold good terms with Charles II. (wh. renew, his office of Gov.) with wh. in former yrs. he interpos. his kind offices to befriend N. E. One mark of this I copied in the State Paper office at London, July 1842, being his letter to Secr. Morrice from Boston, Aug. 1661, about the regicides, Whalley and Goffe, with a very curious one from Rev. John Davenport, on the same subject, addressed to Temple. The clerg. beats the courtier on that topic; but allowance is to be made for the cause, inasmuch as Temple was sincere, we may well suppose, and be more sure that Davenport was not. He thought a little equivocation justifiable for the glory of God,and safety of the prescribed. A pleasant anecdote is relat. by Hutchinson of T.'s persuad. the king, that the pine tree on the coin struck in Boston, was the royal oak that saved his majesty. I doubt not, this is as near the truth as tradit. oft. reaches; perhaps it was uttered by the traveller to our friend the Earl of Manchaster, or even to the Earl of Clarendon, whose well-tried loyalty quarrelled not with discretion; and in the way of trifling not uncommon in that court, may possib. tho. I think not, have got up to the throne. If the merry monarch had been ill-natured eno. to ask what the date, 1652, meant. Sr. Thomas must have had awkward sensations. He d. in London, 27 Mar. 1674, had left at B. a will of 14 Oct. 1671, pro. 28 July 1674, but all the excors. Gov. Leverett capt. Lake, capt. Hull, and John Richards, immediat. renounced the office, prob. thro. fear that the debts would much exceed the means. Ano. will had been pro. the very day bef. at the Prerog. Ct. Doctor's Commons, made 27 Mar. of that yr. so that the first, wh. may be found in our Prob. Vol. VI. 59, is supersed. by this if I. 327.

TENCH, EDWARD, New Haven 1643. WILLIAM, Plymouth, came in the Fortune 1621, alone, as count. in the allot. of lds. and, as is said, d. bef. 1638. As his name does not appear in the div. of cattle. 1627, he may well be suppos. to have d. so much earlier, unless a rem. to ano. place, can be plausib. assert. See Morton's Mem. and Young's Chron.
