which I was fortunate enough to find some years ago when I went through the
then little known genealogical MSS. contained in what are called the Stowe
MSS. in the British Museum, to whose value and importance I called attention
last year (see foot note on p. 257, vol. 48, of Gen. Hey-, ante, p. 861). The vol-
umes have been re-numbered and re-paged since I examined them. The present
reference to the following pedigree is Stowe MS. vol. 670, fo. 230.]

[This pedigree (which shows a tricking of the arms of the family on the
margin) was evidently furnished to the College of Arms, in the year 1700, by
Richard Gary of Loudon, whom I suppose to be the second son of Shershaw
Cary of Bristol by his first wife Mary Scrope. The names and ages of the
children of John, Richard and Thomas I have not taken off. Of the wills
which I have given, thor>e which directly bear on this pedigree are the wills of
Robert (1628) and Walter (1GS3), brothers of our James Cary of New England,
and of Henry Hobson (1636) and his great-granddaughter Alice Cary (1660),
referring to the Virginian line. The other wills, however, seem to me to re-
fer to the same stock, and from them I venture to construct the following
tentative pedigree :

Besides the Cary pedigree from the Stowe MSS. already given, I found another

stook and also of interest through their connection with Virginia. It was con-

structed the very same year (A.D. 1700) as the other,
important portion of it, as follows :

" Anno 1700

I do Certifie this Account of My Descent to be true and desire itt may be
registered in the Colledge of Armes. Witness my hand 24 th day of August Anno
D'ni 1700. John Cary."

I have note of the will of his son Richard, made 7 June, and proved 18 June,
1707 (Poley 137). He calls himself son of John Cary late of London, mer-
chant, deceased, and names brothers Thomas, Callow, William, Robert and
Peter and all his sisters, of whom Elizabeth was now Lady Eyre, and Anna
was wife of Mr. Richard Mounteney. Callow Cary (executor) dying before
completing his trust, admon. de bonis non was granted to Mary Cary, widow,
mother of Callow, and adrax. of his goods. Elizabeth seems to have married
Sir Charles Eyre, and Jane was the Avife of John Higden.— H. F. Waters.]

"William Nicholson of Anne Arundle County (Maryland) merchant
25 September 1719, sworn to (in Maryland) 19 October 1719, certified by
Notary Public at Annapolis 23 November 1719, proved, at London, 5 Feb-
ruary 1719 by William Hunt, one of the executors (power reserved to
grant probate to Elianor Foster, Ann Nicholson and Elizabeth Nicholson,
the other executors). Another probate granted to Elianor Foster 8 July
172<). To my son William one thousand acres in Baltimore Co. called
Poplar Neck and two lots in London town Ann Arundell Co., which I pur-
chased from Thomas Holland and Mehittable Parepoint. To my son
Joseph three tracts of laud, viz 1 Batchellor's Delight (about two hundred and
ninety eight acres), Clark's Directions (about seven hundred and two acres),
both in Ann Arundell Co., and Lockwood's Adveuture (four hundred acres)
in Baltimore Co., as also one lot in London town (Ann Arundell Co.)
taken up by Capt Richard Jones deceased. I give my part of a tract of
land called Nicholson's manor, in Baltimore Co., containing about four
thousand two hundred acres, to my sons Benjamin, Saaauel and Edward


(equally). Certain lands and stocks of negroes, cattle, &c. to be sold. Other
bequests to sons. My will and desire is that my sisters Mrs. Eliuor Fos-
ter, Mrs. Anne Nicholson and Mrs. Eliz a Nicholson take care and have the
tuition of my children until they respectively come to age. And in case
of death of any two of my said sisters my will is that Mr. William Hunt
(merchant in London) have the care and tuition of my said children. And
I so appoint my said sisters and Mr. William Hunt executors of my estate
in Great Britain and my friends Mr. James Monat, Mr. Stephen Warman,
James Nicholson and John Beale executors of my estate in Marylaud.

John Lowe of" Hingum" near Boston in New England, mariner now
belonging to her Majesty's Ship Triton, July 1707, proved 12 November
1708. All goods &c, wages &c. to loving friend William Mason of How-
ton in the County of Durham, mariner.

Probate was granted, as above, to Adam Bird. Attorney lawfully deputed
by William Mason, the natural and lawful father and administrator of
William Mason deceased, while he lived executor named in the will of John
Lowe lately of the royal ship Triton, bachelor, deceased &c.

Barrett, 264.

[There was a Lowe family in Hingham, Mass., at an early date. The only
John in it, that could have been the testator, was John son of John and Eliza-
beth, born in Hingham, April 3, 1655. But he had a family at Hingham. He
died between 1694 and 1719. — Editor.]

Richard Bennett, merchant of the English Nation dwelling in Malaga,
16 February 1G61, proved 2 October 1662. I believe and confess the holy
mother the " Catholique Church of Roome," under which faith and belief I
promise to live and die. I desire that they inter my body in the church of
Sagraria in this city, in which parish I live, in the sepulchre next unto
Mrs. Frances Verney, my wife, which is buried in the same church, and
that they accompany my corpse with the orders of the said Church and ten
Religious of the Convent of St. Francis and the other ten of the Trinity,
my body clothed in the habit of St. Francis &c. Directions for two hun-
dred masses for my soul, for souls in Purgatory aud for my wife's soul also,
and five masses more for the said Mrs. Francis Verney. Reference to
wines laden in the Ship called the Hope, Robert Gardner M r .. consigned to

Laud, 123.

Samuel Thompson citizen and stationer of London. 25 August 1 668,
proved 9 November 1668. As to my estate I desire to own it as special
mercy that anything may be left for my poor children when I consider my
late losses in the firing of London, most humbly acknowledging the right-
eousness of God in that sore judgment and that my sins were very great
incentives of it and mightily 1 1< •] pi ■< 1 to draw, down that desolation on my


self, neighbors and the whole city. I give my plate &c. to all my three
children, equally to be divided. My desire is that my son John be main-
tained in the place where he now is in Oxford until he be Master of Arts
and enter on the Ministry. To ray son John all my lands and tenements
in Neene in the Co. of Salop and in Knighton in the Co. of Worcester
which will descend to him in right of his mother after his grandmother's
decease. I hope he will be helpful to his two sisters, my two daughters
Lydia and Mary. To my said son John all my right, title, interest and
term of years in a close or piece of meadow or pasture ground, commonly
called Overall Close, in the parish of Neene, which I desire him to accept
in full of what he shall or may claim by virtue of the Custom of the City
of London, in regard his estate will far exceed either of his sisters, he to
give a release of all such claim within twenty days after he shall attain the
full age of one and twenty years. To my said two daughters (evidently
minors). If all my three children die before their respective age or mar-
riage I give my children's portions to my nephew Thomas Thompson. I
give to my nephew Thomas Thompson twenty pounds to be paid at the
expiration of his indentures of Apprenticeship, or, if he be desirous to go
over to his mother to New England, then at such time as shall be thought
fit by my executor, to whose care and service I commit him for the remain-
der of the time of his indentures. To my niece Beatrice Thompson five
pounds. My faithful servant and friend Walter Kettleby. To my brother
in law Mr. Matthew Poole five pounds and to his sons Matthew and Frauds
fortv shillings apiece. The residue to my two daughters. My dear frieud
Mr. Samuel Gellibrand to be sole executor, to whom fifty pounds for his
pains. Hene, 146.

[The testator was, I suppose, a brother to Thomas Thompson, who was at
Farminj?ton, Connecticut. — H. F. Waters.

John Newton, 1646, {ante p. 1040) : —

[May not Anthony Newton, one of the founders of the Milton Church, have
been the Anthony Newton mentioned in the will of John Newton above referred
to? I am a descendant of Anthony Newton of Milton. He must have been in
that town for many years, as he was voted land from the " new grant" not as
an original settler, but as one who had claims as an early townsman.

Susan Bell of All Hallows Barking, London, widow (and relict and
executrix of the last will and testament of Thomas Bell late of the same

* Let me take this occasion to remark that in a rather large experience, especially among
inventories in the Probate Registries chiefly of Essex, Middlesex and Suffolk counties^
Massachusetts, I have seen this word spelled, almost or quite invariably, either "server"
or " sarver." In fact, I am not sure that, down to the period of our Revolution, I have
ever seen the modern spelling " salver." I take it that the ordinary pronunciation of the
vowel in the first syllable was like the present English pronunciation of the same vowel in
" Derby." The sound of " r" becoming obscure the change of spelling from " server," or
rather " sarver," to " salver" would easily follow. If I am right, then, the next change
was in pronunciation, i. e. to " sal-ver." H. F. Waters.
