Mary Trowbridge (<lit'd 1609) married John Collins of Branford and Guil-
ford, Conn. [Talcott Ms. in the library of the !New Haven Colony Historical
Society, New Haven, Conn.] The compiler could not connect her with the
family of Thomas Trowbridge No. 1.

The name John STR.\BRroG* appears on the roll of Capt. William Turner's
company, from April 7, 1(!76, which was st«tione<l at the garrison at Hadley,
September 23, 1676, during King Philip's War. There is no evidence that he
took part in the Falls Fight.f No later record of him has been found. Was tliis
not John iS'/oci'bridge who "swore fidelity" at Haverhill in 1677 ?

"Newton, Mass., Vital Reconk," recently published, mentions the deaths of
two Trowbridges: "M. S., December 28, 1701-2, aged 28," and "P., October
23, 1713, aged about 60." The compiler thinks there could have been no Trow-
bridges of those initials, imless possibly the foniier was the first wife of No.

"Thomas Trowbridge died on board the sloop Seaflower, from Ireland to
Boston, Mass., in February, 1741." [Boston Kecord Commissioners' Reports,
Vol. 15, p. 328.]

"The Winchell Family History" states that, Trowbridge of Nine

Partners, N. Y., married daughter of Robert and Lydia (Hurlburt)

Winchell. An examination of the wills of Robert (dated December 11, 1758)
and Lydia (dated June 20, 1773) Winchell of North East, N. T., shows that
there was one daughter, Anna, the fourth of seven children named in her father's
will, and the only unmarried daughter in her mother's will, who might have
inarried a Trowbridge. Her father was born in 1705, and she must have been
born prior to 1750. perhaps nearer 1740. Eli (No. 185) had a brother, Seeley,
who lived in Nine Partners. The compiler could not connect her with any

brother Beriah Phelps, of Brantford, man-ied Lydia Robinson (bom 1813),
