Elizabeth m. 1658, Rev. Antipas Newman of Wenham, and[[vol. 4, p. 613]] next Zerubabel Endicott, and d. 7 Dec. 1716; Lucy m. prob. 1660, Edward Palmes, wh. rem. that yr. from New Haven, and she d. 24 Nov. 1676; Margaret m. May 1665, John Curwin of Salem; Martha m. (I presume long aft. the dec. of her f.) Richard Wharton, for in Sept. 1677, she and her sis. Ann, as maidens, convey. to their two bros. all their right and cIaim in est. for L1,000. by deed, to be seen in our Reg. X. 167; Ann m. 1 Sept. 1692, as his sec. w. John Richards.
STEPHEN, Boston, fourth s. of first Gov. John, but first by his third w. came with his f. 1630, in the Arbella, adm. of our ch. 16 Mar. 1634, and freem. 7 Dec. 1636, when only 17 yrs. old, was appoint. in 1639 by the Ct. to record things," in 1642 obtain. leave from the Gen. Ct. to go to Eng. but did not for three or four yrs. avail hims. of the gr. was ar. co. 1644, rep. in 1644 for Portsmouth. In Eng. he was quite succesful in acquir. distinct. both milit. and politic. was made lead of a regim. and so much trusted by Cromwell, that he design. it is said, to appoint. him successor to Major-Gen. Harrison, when he thot. good to send that fellow laborer to prison, and direct. one of his subordinate places in Scotland to return Winthrop as a mem. of one of his pretended parliam. those skilful architects of ruin that did nothing but build up anarchy. But he d. bef. the restorat. effect. by Monk, in whose army he was then serv. and might have gain. favor under the crown. He had early m. at Boston, Judith, sis. of Col. William Rainsborough, had Stephen, b. 7 Nov. bapt. 9 Dec. 1644, prob. d. 1647; and John, 24, bapt. 31 May 1646, wh. also prob. d. young; ano. Stephen was b. to him at Groton in Eng. 13 May 1651; but in his will he styles hims. of James Street, Westminster. He had three ds. Judith, w. of Richard Hancock; Margaret, m. Henry Ward, and next, Capt. Edmund Willey; and Joanna; but it may seem prob. that they were b. in Eng. α WAITSTILL, Boston, s. of Gov. John of Conn. with wh. he liv. long, and was one of the commiss. of the N. E. col. in 1672, and in the perilous days in 1675, 6, with his f. m. Mary, d. of William Browne, of Salm, had John, bapt. 12 Oct. 1679, d. soon; John, again, 28 Aug. 1681, H. C. 1700; Elizabeth 11 May 1683, d. soon; William, 7 Dec. 1684; Ann, 28 Nov. 1686; and Joseph, 13 Sept. 1689.
He was of the counc. nam. by the crown for Presid. Joseph Dudley in 1685, and for Sir Edmund Andros in 1686, and join heartily in his overthrow; and by the selfform. counc. of safety he was put at the head of the milit. force, chos. an Assist. in 1692, under the old form of governm. ten days bef. the arr. of Sir. William Phips with the new chart. In this he was made by the k. one of the counc. and thenceforward by popul. choice was contin. in that place, and also shortly aft. ch. justice of the Prov. appoint. by Gov. to [[vol. 4, p. 614]] his d. 7 Nov. 1717, not as Farmer says, 7 Sept. His first w. d. 14 June 1690, and Willim his s. d. 25 Sept. 1693, and Joseph d. two days aft. as Sewall's Diary shows. He took for sec. w. 13 Nov. 1707, Catharine, d. of Thomas Brattle, wid. of John Eyre, wh. d. 5 Aug. 1725. The s. John bec. disting. was a mem. of the Royal Soc. and left very disting. descend. Among gr. at the coll. Farmer ment. only five s. of a single branch; but it appears by the catal. that eight have been bred at Yale, and eighteen at Harv.
WINUS, JOHN, New Haven, m. 1664, Susanna Meylen, d. of a Dutchman, and was perhaps hims. a Dutchman, had John, b. 1 July 1665; and Susanna, 9 Feb. 1667.
WISE, HENRY, Guilford, perhaps s. of Joseph of Roxbury, had w. Mary, and two young ch. when he d. early in 1684. His inv. is of 1 Mar. and the names of ch. do not appear. HUMPHREY, Ipswich 1639, had w. Susanna, and ch. Benjamin, Joseph, Emma, Sarah, and Ann, when he d. His wid. m. Samuel Greenfield. JOHN, Ipswich, s. of Joseph of Roxbury, aft. leav. coll. preach. at Branford (whence as chaplain to the soldiers in Jan. 1676, he march. with major Treat for Narraganset), there declin. invita. to sett. and preach. at Hatfield 1677 and 8, took the o. of fidel. in Feb. 1679, and was almost prevail. on to bec. the min. of that inf. town, but went to Ipswich, there was ord. 1682, or 1684, in a new parish, call. Chebacco, now Essex; at H. had m. 5 Dec. 1678, Abigail, d. of Thomas Gardner of Roxbury, had Jeremiah, H. C. 1700, min. of Berwick; Lucy; Joseph; Ammi Ruhami; Mary; Henry, H. C. 1717; and John; but no date is kn. nor whether these wh. outliv. him were the only ones. He was deeply engag. in the controv. raised by Andros's levy of a tax on all the towns of the col. and with his patriotic neighb. Col. Appleton was fin. and imprison. for words spok. in derogat. of the tyranny; and aft. overthrow of the usurp. he was one of the rep. 1689, next yr. one of the chaplains in the illconcoct. expedit. of Sir William Phips against Quebec, and d. 8 Apr. 1725.
JOSEPH, Roxbury, serv. George Alcock, as nam. in his will of Dec. 1640, had perhaps been brot. by him, when he came th third time, 1636, from Eng. m. 3 Dec. 1641, Mary Thompson, as the town rec. tells, but whose d. she was is unheard, yet it may have been of William of Braintree, had Joseph, b. 1 Apr. 1643; Jeremiah, of whose b. the date is not seen (but the mo. hav. join. the ch.), both of her ch. were bapt. 24 May 1646; Sarah, 19, bapt. 26 Dec. 1647; Mary, bapt. 3 Feb. 1650; John, bef. ment. 15 Aug. 1652, H. C. 1673; Henry, 4 Mar. 1655; Bethia, 26 Apr. 1657; Benjamin, 7 Oct. 1660, wh. d. early in Dec. foll. says the ch. rec. but the rec. of the town, that omits the b. makes up for the deficiency by insert. the d. under 1664, on the principle [[vol. 4, p. 615]] of better late than never; and William, 9 Mar. 1662, whose b. is not found; Jeremiah, again, d. 1678; was a butcher late in his days, and d. 12 Sept. 1684; and his wid. d. 4 Aug. 1693. His d. Sarah m. a. 1666, Stephen Williams of R.; Mary m. 30 June 1669, Caleb Lamb.
JOSEPH, Roxbury, s. of the preced. had Abigail, b. 20 June 1666; but wh. was his w. or when she d. are unkn. He d. 30 Jan. 1685. A wid. Jane Wise d. at Roxbury, Apr. 1637, perhaps mo. of Joseph the first; but wh. was that John, Cambridge, d. 9 Sept. 1644, is beyond the hope of certainty. NICHOLAS, freem. of Mass. 1645, no more heard of. THOMAS, Saco 1636, is nam. in Folsom, 33.
WISEMAN, JAMES, Braintree 1639, had James, b. 8 Oct. 1640; and Mercy or Mary, 28 Mar. 1643; rem. to Boston, there by w. Dorothy had Joseph, 24 Dec. 1655. and Sarah, 18 Sept. 1657; perhaps these were by ano. w. then he at Braintree. He was liv. 1677; and was a brazier. His d. Mary m. 12 June 1660, John Verin.
WISWALL, EBENEZER, Newton, youngest s. of Thomas of the same, m. 26 Mar. 1685, Sarah Foster, wid. of Elisha, and d. of Giles Payson, had no ch. was freem. 1675 or 80, as he sw. in both yrs. if we believe the rec. was lieut. and d. 21 June 1691, in his will giv. his est. (aft. the life of w. wh. surv. to 22 Aug. 1714) to John, Oliver, and Samuel, s. of his br. Enoch, and made him, with his brs.-in-law, Samuel Payson and Nathaniel Holmes, excors. ENOCH, Dorchester, eldest br. of the preced. b. in Eng. a tanner, m. 25 Nov. 1657, Elizabeth d. of John Oliver of Boston, the scholar, had John, b. 10 Dec. 1658, bapt. 20 Feb. foll.; Enoch, 10, bapt. 13 Jan. 1661, d. soon; Hannah, bapt. 6 Apr. 1662; Oliver, b. 25, bapt. 29 Jan. 1665; Elizabeth bapt. 21 tho. rec. of b. is 28 Apr. 1667; Esther, b. 28 Dec. 1669, bapt. 2 Jan. 1670; Susanna, 2, bapt. 4 Aug. 1672; Enoch, again, 6, bapt. 11 Apr. 1675, d. young; Mary, 27 Aug. bapt. 2 Sept. 1677; Samuel, 2, bapt. 21 Sept. 1679, H. C. 1701, min. of Edgartown; and Enoch and Ebenezer, tw. b. and bapt. 25 Feb. 1683; and d. 28 Nov. 1706, aged 73. His wid. d. 31 May 1712, aged 75, says the gr.-st. of wh. we kn. the mistake, as she was under 72 yrs. and 3 mos. Susanna m. Edward Breck.
ICHABOD, Duxbury, brs. of the preced. had ent. H. C. but left in 1657 with the same cause of dissat. as carr. away Brinsmead and others, was some yrs. employ. perhaps at Pemaquid, there with a large part of the inhab. took o. of fidel. 1674, in 1676 was ord. at D. m. Priscilla, d. of William Peabody of that place, had Mary, b. 4 Oct. 1680; Hannah, 22 Feb. 1682; Peleg, 5 Feb. 1684, H. C. 1702; Perez, 22 Nov. 1686, prob. d. young; Mercy; Priscilla; and Deborah. He was sent 1689 to Eng. to procure new chart. for the Col. and stood stoutly for its independ. but was overpow. by the name and influence of Mass. yet he [[vol. 4, p. 616]] ascrib. not the disappoint. of just expecta. as a train. politician might have done, to any more cause than the rashness and imprudence of Mather, wh. had craftily alarm. the fear of Gov. Hinckley by suggest. of the peril that Plymouth jurisdict. might be annex. to New York. He d. 23 July 1700, and his wid. d. 3 June 1714, aged 71. Of his will, very judic. in bestowing, upon w. and five ch. the eldest d. w. of Elisha Wadsworth having been provid. for at m. Francis Jackson, Esq. in addit. to very many other favors, gave me a copy.
JOHN, Dorchester, must have come in 1634 or earlier, as he was made deac. on the gather. in Aug. 1636 of the new ch. at D. for Richard Mather, when the larger part of the first mem. had gone to Conn. with Warham. He brot. w. Margaret, d. prob. of Thomas Smith of London. He was freem. 14 Mar. 1639, rep. 1646, and oft. aft. selectman in 1648 and bef. and aft. went to Eng. (Mr. Clapp in Hist. of D. says) 1652, and in few yrs. aft. his coming again, rem. to Boston, was an ironmonger, and gen. trader, made rul. elder at the first ch. and d. 16 Aug. 1687, aged 85 or 6 yrs. From the numb. and dates of many of his ch. I feel confid. that he had sec. w. as Benjamin, bapt. 15 Apr. 1649; Henry, 9 June 1650; Martha, b. 23 Feb. bapt. 14 Mar. 1652; Esther, 7, bapt. 11 June 1654, prob. d. young; Ruth, bapt. prob. 25 May 1656; but afr. most patient investigat. Mr. Clapp is sure only of portion of these, as ch. of John, and thinks the two first nam. may have belong. to his br. Thomas. No great value attaches to the decision, as neither liv. long. But John, s. of John was also bapt. 15 Apr. 1649. By his will of 9 July preced. his dec. pro. 1 Sept. foll. are nam. only s. John; ds. Hannah Overman, the eldest ch. w. of Thomas, wh. had first, in 1656, been w. of Mahaleel Munnings; Deborah, bapt. 23 May 1641, wh. m. a Cutter, as Clapp in Hist. of Dorchester, 138, reads, but I doubt, bec. d. Deborah seems ment. apart from d. Cutter; d. Fisher, whose h. is call. Daniel, tho. the reason is not seen, and perhaps the name is wrong; d. Johnson, wh. was Rebecca, perhaps the eldest, bapt. 2 Dec. 1638, sec. w. in Oct. 1662, of Matthew; d. Lydia Ballard, bapt. 13 Apr. 1645, with whose h. I am unacq.; d. Mary Edmunds, whose h. is unkn.; and d. Mountford, wh. prob. was Ruth, w. of Henry.
JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 5 May 1685, Hannah Baker, was freem. 1690, liv. perhaps some time at Dorchester, where his w. d. 18 Sept. of that yr. had 28 yrs. NOAH, Newton, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 10 Dec. 1664, Theodosia, d. perhaps eldest, of deac. John Jackson of the same, had Thomas, b. 29 Apr. 1666, d. young; Elizabeth 30 Sept. 1668; Caleb; Margaret, 1 Mar. 1672; Hannah, 1 Apr. 1674; Mary; Esther, 1 Apr. 1678; Sarah, 5 Jan. 1681; and Thomas, again, 29 Apr. 1686; was freem. 1685, capt. in 1690, when, march. to relieve Casco, in hard fight, [[vol. 4, p. 617]] 6 July, with Ind. he was slain, near Wheelwright's pond, in Lee, N. H. In the Magnalia, VII. 75, may be read an acco. of this action, embellish. as usual, in style, but it is silent a. the d. of his s. John at the same battle, and we otherwise hear of no such s. I reject. the tradit. Forty-three yrs. later, a gr. of ld. in Lunenburg, was extorted for these serv. from the tardy gratitude of the Province.
OLIVER, Dorchester, s. of Enoch the first of the same, m. 1 June 1690, Sarah Baker, had Thomas; Enoch; Ebenezer; Oliver; Ichabod; John; and Samuel; and d. 28 Nov. 1706. His. wid. d. 31 May 1712, aged 73. THOMAS, Cambridge, br. of John the first, long dwelt with him at Dorchester, where he sett. 1635, and was a very useful man, bring. w. Elizabeth and s. Enoch, b. prob. in 1635, and perhaps Esther, bapt. here 1635; yet was not freem. bef. 1635; had also, at D. Ichabod, a. 1637, bef. ment.; Noah, bapt. 30 Dec. 1638, says Jackson; Sarah, bapt. prob. 19 Mar. 1643; Ebenezer, 1646; and Elizabeth 15 Apr. 1649. Bef. July 1657 he had rem. to C. and gave his est. at D. to his s. Enoch. When John Eliot, s. of the apostle, was ord. 20 July 1664, the first min. of C. village, W. was made rul. Elder. He took sec. w. late in his days, Isabella Farmer, a wid. from Eng. mo. of Edward Farmer of Billerica, whose maiden name was Barbage, of Great Packington in Co. Warwick, from wh. by one more step of descent, than is giv. in the first art. of Geneal. Reg. I. came the diligent, judicious, and admired John Farmer, kn. thro. the length and breadth of N. E. as the author of the Geneal. Reg. of the first sett. print. at Lancaster 1829. W. d. at Newton, wh. had been incorp. from C. some yrs. bef. on 6 Dec. 1683; and his wid. d. at her son's in Billerica, 21 May 1686. Esther m. 16 May 1655, William Johnson of Woburn; Mary m. Samyel Payson of Dorchester, says Jackson, but she d. 25 May 1727 in 59th yr. if the gr.-st. tells the truth, and ano. fate was that of this d. of Wiswall; and Sarah m. Nathaniel Holmes.
WITCHFIELD, JOHN, Dorchester, came in the Lion, arr. 16 Sept. 1632, freem. 11 June 1633, rem. with first sett. to Windsor, where his w. d. 26 Apr. 1659. He m. next, 1662, Margaret, wid. of Edward Goffe of Cambridge, but had no ch. by either. The sec. w. d. a. the end of June 1669 at Cambridge, where she had, 21 Apr. 1663, made her will, giving a piece of plate to W. her h. small legacies to the childr. of Samuel and Lydia, two ch. of her former h. by his first w. to her d.-inlaw Elizabeth Hayward, wh. is unkn. to me, to Rev. Jonathan Mitchell, Mr. Samuel Shepard, and Thomas Fanning, ea. £5. to the childr. of her sis. Jane, first w. of Edwuard Winship, of wh. Joanna, the youngest, was to have double portion; but the larger part of her est. was for her own ds. Hannah and Abiah Goffe. This will was dr. by Thomas Danforth, [[vol. 4, p. 618]] witness. by him, Thomas Chisholme, and Caleb, that solitary aborig. gr. of H. C. 1665, wh. d. next yr. bef. he could be call. to verify his signat. wh. is very handsome. He was deac. and d. 16 Mar. 1678 at Windsor. The venerable Dr. T. M. Harris, mistook, in his Histor. Disc. 65, this name, and gave it Whitfield.
WITHAM, HENRY, Gloucester 1665, s. prob. of Thomas, d. 17 Apr. 1702, had Thomas, b. 1666; Henry, 1668; John, 1670; Samuel, 1672; and Joseph, 1676; by w. Sarah, d. of Morris Somes, wh. he m. 15 June 1665, and she d. 11 May 1689. He m. 23 Oct. 1691, Lydia Griffin, wh. outliv. him only few mos. THOMAS, Gloucester, wh. d. 1653, was, as Mr. Babson thinks, f. of Henry.
WITHERDEN, or WYTHERDEN, JOHN, Scituate 1643, rem. to Boston 1659, had a windmill 1654, on the common at Foxhill, by leave of the inhabs. and liv. 1661.
WITHERIDGE or WYTHERIDGE, as the ch. rec. has it, EDWARD. Boston, mariner and merch. join. our ch. 24 Feb. 1644, and was made freem. in May foll. See WETHERIDGE. One Mary Witheridge of Salem vill. was arrest. in May 1692, as a witch (Essex Inst. III. 119); but I see no proof, that either the devil or the court prevail. to obt. convict.
WITHERS, THOMAS, Kittery, came prob. with Neal, 1631, as one of his comp. for the patentee John Mason, and so may have liv. first on the W. side of the riv. in 1653 own. the jurisdict. of Mass. and was made a commissnr. the same yr. rep. 1656.
WITHIE, ROBERT, aged 20, with Susan, 18, and Mary, 16, prob. his sis. emb. at London, with a Mary With, 62, perhaps the mo. of them all, 11 Sept. 1635, in the Hopewell, Capt. Babb, but I can find no trace of them on our side of the water.
WITHINGTON, EBENEZER, Dorchester, s. of Richard of the same. freem. 1690, had w. Mary wh. d. 10 Jan. 1691; but I believe no ch. and d. 11 Feb. 1729, in 78th yr. and by his sec. w. Mary, d. of the church of Taunton, prob. m. 2 Feb. 1693, he had Ebenezer, b. 22 Dec. foll. wh. d. soon; and she d. 27 Dec. 1736, aged 76. HENRY, Dorchester, came prob. in 1636 or perhaps a yr. bef. was one of the six founders of the ch. 23 Aug. for Richard Mather instal. brot. w. Elizabeth and ch. Richard; Faith, wh. m. Richard Baker; Mary, wh. m. 23 Feb. 1644, Thomas Danforth; and Ann, wh. m. James Bates the sec. His w. d. 16 Feb. 1661, and he m. 1662, Margaret, wid. of Richard Paul; was made a selectman, 1636, by the ch. rul. Elder, 1637, yet never a freem. and d. 2 Feb. 1667, aged 79. His wid. d. 20 May 1676. He had good est. and his will of 8 Jan. 1665, div. it among the three ds. and his s. Richard's four s. HENRY, Dorchester, br. of Ebenezer, join. the ch. 2 Jan. 1677, as did his w. Sarah, 7 Nov. 1687. She was d. of Henry Leadbetter, m. 12 June 1684, had Sarah, b. 13 Apr. 1688.

WITT, JOHN, Lynn 1650, was, perhaps, one of the selectmen of Groton 1655, to aid in organiz. town gov. but soon back at L. by w. Sarah had Martha, b. 5 Mar. 1659; Thomas, 25 July 1661; Ebenezer, 6 Apr. 1665, d. in few wks.; and others. He d. 2 Dec. 1675, leav. wid. Sarah, and ch.

WITTER, JOSIAH, Lynn, s. of William of the same, m. 25 Feb. 1662, Elizabeth Wheeler, had Elizabeth b. 15 Mar. 1663; and Mary, 20 Feb. 1665; may have been at Stonington 1670, perhaps with f. of his w.
