sons moved to Dennisville, Cape May Co., N. J. A considerable
account of this family, after their migration to Cape May Co., 2J. J.
(whither the L. I. people went for carrying on the whaling busi-

this county, bound up with the Report of the Geological Survey of
Cape May County by G. H. Cook.
55. Lum (or Loom), John, had a home lot granted June 17,
1651. He probably removed to Huntington, as such a one in 1660

still a son Samuel in Southampton, who is said to be heir of Mark
Meiggs, of Huntington. In 1654 John has a hundred in the Saga-
bonack division. He had, also, probably another son, Matthew,
who was a blacksmith, and in 1667 lived in the Southend some-
where. A Samuel is on the list of 1683 and 1694, and on the list
of 1698 we find a number of the name, and if his family, we might

2d Edward Howell, who thus brought the children to Southampton,
where John, at maturity, married Susana Clark, and Mary m. Rev.
John Fordham. The John of Southampton must have had male
heirs, as a family of this name in Hadlyme, Ct., claim descent

settlement. He, more than any other, occupied himself in destroy-
ing wolves, as appears from the town records. Eichard is once men-
tioned, but it is probably a clerical error for Eobert. He m. Mary,
d. of William Browne, and in 1650 administers upon the estate of
his father-in-law. Thompson mentions him as a resident of Hemp-
stead in 1682, as also a John â€” perhaps a son.

Mass., a fuller, had w. Deborah and ch. Isaac, Jeremiah, Ehoda,
Sarah, Hannah and Bethia. The s. Jeremiah probably is the one

when he is mentioned as on jury, or the elder Jeremiah might himself
have moved as mentioned. Hedges gives him an early residence in

son David, b. Dec. 9, 1693.
66. Milner, George, appears as resident in 1653 and 1654. Lewis
says Michael Milner came in the James of London 1635, as. 23, and
removed to L. I. If so, perhaps he was father of this George.
