TOUSLAND, TOUSLEY, TOWSE, or TOUSEY, RICHARD, Saybrook, perhaps had a w. and fam. bef. 1666, but in this yr. made contr. of m. with Dorothy, wid. of John Edwards, wh. had been wid. of Abraham Finch, of Wethersfield, d. early in Feb. 1674, giv. back to his w. the prop. she brot. him. THOMAS, Wethersfield, perhaps s. of the preced. by a first w. did not live at W. bef. 1674, was a weaver, an enterpris. man, had in comp. with William Pitkin, a fulling-mill in Hartford; d. 1712, aged 62; had Thomas, Y. C. 1707, ancest. of the late Secr. of the Navy, beside Elizabeth

TOUTE, RICHARD, Scituate 1643, then able to bear arms, but no more is heard of him, exc. that in 1663, he was of Boston, a lighterman.

TOUTON, JOHN, a Huguenot physician of Rochelle in France, with others petition. our Gen. Ct. as early as 1662, for permiss. to rem. higher; and their prayer was gr. but whether any other than came is not appar. He liv. at Rehoboth, July 1675. [[vol. 4, p. 316]]

TOWER, or TOWERS, DAVID, Hingham, perhaps s. of John, more prop. his gr.s. perish. in the doleful exped. of Phips against Quebec, 1690, but as he d. of smallpox, I conclude it occurr. as did many others, bef. the squadron left our harbor. JEREMIAH, Salisbury, perhaps s. of John of Hingham, m. Elizabeth d. of Richard Goodale. JOHN, Hingham 1637, came from Hingham in Co. Norf. it is said, freem. 13 Mar. 1639, m. Feb. preced. or foll. Margaret Ibrook, d. prob. of Richard, had Ambrose, Benjamin, b. 5 Nov. 1654m Jonathan, Hannah, and Jeremiah; but perhaps he had s. John, at least we kn. that he was describ. as John sen. He was engag. in early plant. at Lancaster, 1654, and descend, are very num. WILLIAM, Boston 1668, a butcher.

TOWLE, TOWEL, TOALE, TOLE, TOLL, TOULE, or TOWELL, HENRY, Wethersfield, rem. to Saybrook soon aft. 1668, had w. Sarah, and one ch. prob. Henry, desert. his w. wh. in 1676 was divorc. for his desert. above six yrs. as in Trumbull's Col. Rec. II. 293, with liberty if shall "have opportun. to join hers. in m. with ano. man."

PHILIP, Hampton 1670, had prob. been an early sett. for PHILIP jr. took the o. of alleg. 1678, some mos. bef. his f. wh. d. 1696. 

ROGER, Boston 1640, in Col. Rec. is call. serv. to Mr. Henry Webb, wh. means, I suppose, appr. was freem. 1644, hav. been adm. of the ch. with the same designat. 20 Apr. preced. WILLIAM, Malden, by w. Mary, had Benjamin, b. 2 Nov. 1689, or Jan. 1690; for the person wh. made the copy of the rec. chang. the dates for Geneal. Reg. VI. 335, in most cases by mistaking the numeral for the mo.

TOWNE, EDMUND, Topsfield, was eldest s. of William, wh. prob. was s. of Richard Braceby in Co. Lincoln, where Ann, wid. of said Richard, made her will 10 Dec. 1629, of wh. copy is in Geneal. Reg. X. 36. Braceby is 6 ms. from Grantham and 5 from Folkenham. He came, 1637, prob. in the Rose of Yarmouth, aged 18, as apprent. to Henry Skerry of Salem, m.

JOSEPH, Topsfield, s. of Edmund, had two ws. of wh. Emma, m. 1687, was perhaps sec. Whether by the former, Phebe, he had any, is not ascert. but ch. were Benjamin, Daniel, Nathan, Jesse, Nathaniel, Amos, and Emma; and he d. 1717. PETER, Cambridge, s. of William of the same, bapt. in Eng. had w. Joanna, and I kn. no more, but that he was freem. 1690, and d. 2 Nov. 1705, aged 72 yrs. 10 mos. as Harris gives the inscript. 

THOMAS, Lynn, m. at Reading 30 Oct. 1662, Hannah, of unkn. surname; gave evid. in 1681, then aged 50, a lds. d. at R. 1684. Perhaps it is Tower. THOMAS, Topsfield, s. of Edmund of the same, in early youth was in the flower of Essex under capt. Lothrop, on Conn. riv. in 1675, but perhaps not present at Bloody Brook, m. 1685, Sarah French, perhaps d. of John of Ipswich, had Edmund, Thomas, Richard, Experience, Sarah, Ednah, and Mercy; and d. a. 1720. WILLIAM, Salem, had m. at Yarmouth, Co. Norfolk, 25 Mar. 1620 or 1, Joanna Blessing, and prob. came over the water, 1635, tho. in what ship is not seen; in Dec. 1640, he had gr. of ld. at S. but Felt spells the name Townde.

Francis Nurse, had eight ch. and was excut. for a witch, 19 July 1692, to wh. her deafness was the chief inducem. Mary m. Isaac Esty, had two ds. and was tr. on 9th execut. 22 Sept. 1692, under the same said infatuat. She was the heroic woman, that in our day gives dignity to the cause, as set forth in Chandler's Crim. Trials. Sarah m. 11 Jan. 1660. Edmund Bridge or Bridges, had five ch. and next m. Peter Cloyes, had two or three more, and was a gr. sufferer in the [[vol. 4, p. 318]] witchr. proceed. barely escap. with life. WILLIAM, Cambridge 1635, freem. 18 Apr. 1637, had w. Martha, wh. d. 20 Jan. 1674, s. Peter, bapt. in Eng. d. Mary, b. 6 Sept. 1637, bapt. at C. was town clk. 1639, bot. in 1653, a ho. of David Stone, was tythingman 1680, and d. aged 80, 30 Apr. 1685, tho. Harris gives the rec. Mar. wh.

He was a housewright, ar. co. 1679, and bef. 17 Dec. 1689, d. intest. when admin. was refus. by his wid. JOHN, Lynn, perhaps s. of Thomas, and b. in Eng. was of ar. co. 1641, and of the early sett. on L. I. JOHN, Warwick, among the freem. there of 1655, may have been br. of Henry, or the same as the preced. had Rose wh. m. John Wicks the sec. His eldest ch. was John; and others were Thomas, Elizabeth James, Sarah, Ann, George, and Daniel. His w. was Elizabeth d. of Robert Cole. He d. at Oyster Bay 1669.

Mary, wid. of Paul Dudley, d. of Gov. Leverett, wh. was bur. 5 July 1691; and for third w. wh. outliv. him, he took Hannah, wid. of George Jaffrey, Esp. of N. H. He was of ar. co. 1674, freem. 1674, very much confid. in for public concerns, rep. 1686, being the last Court under the old Chart. and on the overthrow of Andros, was rechosen almost every time for some yrs. went as commisnr. with Hutchinson 1691, to make peace with Ind. speaker of the house and counsellor many yrs. serv. thro. all the ranks in the milit. from ens. to col. and d. 21 Aug. 1727.

PETER, Boston, carpenter, s. of William of the same, by w.

SAMUEL, Boston, liv. at Rumney Marsh, Chelsea, by w. Abigail had David, b. 29 Sept. 1666; Jonathan, 10 Sept. 1668; perhaps, also, Samuel, and more ch. was freem. 1683, hav. join. the 2d ch. 18 Sept. 1681. SAMUEL, Boston, prob. s. of the preced. was freem. 1690. THOMAS, Lynn, the freem. of 14 Mar. 1639, wh. d. 22 Dec. 1677 is thot. to have had Thomas, Henry, and John, b. prob. in Eng. all early engag. in settlem. on L. I. THOMAS, Boston, perhaps br. of Samuel the first, with w. Mary adm. into the 2d ch. 30 Oct. 1681, was freem. 1683, but of him I kn. no more. WILLIAM, Boston, adm. of the ch. 3 Aug. 1634, the same day with Gov. Bellingham and his w. with John Newgate and the w. of our br. Nicholas Wyllys, of wh. W. T. is then call. serv. so that we may well infer, that he came early that yr. from London. The simplicity of charact. was exhitib. in the puritan's household, and this stile of serv. did not imply inferior condit. so much as obligat. to learn, otherwise, in case of males, term apprent. His w. Hannah Penn, wh. had join the ch. 15 Mar. 1635, is call. "our br. James Everill's maid serv." was sis. of the rul. Elder, James P. and if she came with her master, and her h. with his, as the principles were rec. in July preced. we may believe they all came in one sh. He was freem. 25 May 1636, had Eliezur, 12 June 1635; Patience, bapt. 28 May [[vol. 4, p. 320]] 1637; Hannah, b. 4, bapt. 1 Apr. 1641; Peter 26, bapt. 30 Oct. 1641; Mary, 24 Nov. 1644; James, b. 15 Jan. 1647; Penn, 20 Dec. 1651; John, 3 Sept. 1653, d. next yr.; and Mary, wh. d. 29 Nov. 1658. With the maj. part of the Boston ch. he was adher. of Wheelwright's opin. and subject. in Nov. 1637, to the indign. of being disarm. as a danger. heretic, but was not of suffic. age or import. to be driv. away. He d. bef. Dec. 1689, and his wid. d. bef. 6 Feb. 1700, when admin. de bonis non on est. of her h. was giv. to s. Penn. Hannah, m. 3 Apr. 1657, Thomas Hull, and next, as Whitman says, lieut.

Elizabeth only d. of Elder William Wentworth, had Martha, Abigail, Sarah, Judith, and perhaps more; liv. 22 Sept. 1734. His w. and hims. were prison. in Canada more than once; but both were liv. Jan. 1733, when he sw. he was 73 yrs. old. SIMON, Watertown, perhaps s. of Richard the first, flying from Ind. hostil. by w.

TRACEY, DANIEL, Norwich, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 1682, Abigail, d. of Thomas Adgate of Saybrook, and was k. 1728, with others, by fall of a bridge, says Miss Caulkins, wh. does not ment. any ch. tho. we may believe, that he, as well as his bros. had fam. *JOHN, Duxbury, s. of Stephen, wh. was one of the first comers, m. Mary, d. of Gov. Prence, had Sarah; Stephen, 1673; perhaps others; rem. to Windham, there d. 30 May 1718; was rep. 1683 and 6.

Rebecca is count. had Ruth, Mary, and John, b. 1633; in 1645 was of Duxbury, and in 1650, or near that, went home in the early part of 1655 call. hims. of Great Yarmouth, by his will, made in London, of wh. John Winslow was made excor. names the five ch. to wh. he gives all his prop. so that we must presume the w. was d. Sarah m. George Partridge. *THOMAS, Salem 1637, carpenter, rem. soon to Saybrook, thence in few yrs. to Wethersfield, or Hartford, perhaps both, but at last took up perman. resid. at Norwich, of wh. he was one of the parent. rep. 1662, and almost always aft. ensign long, and lieut. His eldest ch. was John; other ch. he had, as Caulkins, p. 112 shows; Jonathan; Thomas; Solomon; Daniel, b. a. 1653; Samuel; and Miriam, wh. m. Nov. 1668, Thomas Waterman. He was Commissary in Philip's war. 

WILLIAM, is the first name on the list of passeng. in the Mary and John, wh. took o. of alleg. 24 Mar. 1634, and as so many of his compan. over the ocean sat down at Newbury aft. tempor. resid. at Ipswich, we may be justif. in think. that he did so; and possib. he is ancestor of those wh. gave high distinct. to this name near a century ago in that place. Farmer marks in 1834, that nine of this name had been gr. at Yale, three at Harv. and eight at other N. E. coll. most at Dart.

TRAPP, THOMAS, honor, by tradit. as one of the first sett. on Martha's [[vol. 4, p. 322]] Vineyard, some time betw. 1632 and 1642, but authentic hist. kn. nothing of him.
