1570, and by wife Nichola Shinning had Emanuel, 4 William 4 and Robert. 4 Wil-

Newbury and was a physician; on 13 Oct., 1654, he purchased a house, garden
and orchard in Boston. His Avifc was Margery, eldest dan. of Giles Stagg of
Southwark, whom he mar. 5 July, 1648. Their children were William, 7 b. 24
June. 1641); Ann, 7 b. 2 March, 1652, d. young; Ann, 7 b. 7 May, 1654. The wife
d. 18 June, 1C07, age 46, and is buried in Copps' Hill.

The will of William 6 is proved at Boston, 1674, and in it he states his relation-
ship to Thomas* as " the youngest sou of the late Thomas Snelling of Chaddle-
wood." The seal he used has" the arms of the Devon family — " A rg., three
griffins' heads erased Gu., a chief ermine" — with a mullet as a mark of cadency,
this denoting his being a descendant of a third -on (probably his grandfather),

as his brother John, 8 in his pedigree of the family in 1620 (Harl. MSS. 1163,
folio 109), calls him fourth son of Thomas.* This John, 6 father of Frances, 7
before mentioned, could not have been the settler in New England, as suggested
by Mr. Augustus T. Perkins, in the Heraldic Journal, vol. ii. p. 11 ; or the set-
tler at Saco, 1653, as given by Savage, as he was buried 28 Dec, 1639, at Plymp-
ton, St. Mary.

There has also been credited to Dr. William 6 a brother Joseph, who nowhere
appears in the English pedigree. Other wills of this family would show
beyond question whether the identity of the father of Dr. William* is as given
above.

Ann, 7 dau. of Dr. William, m. Frances Daveuport, mariner, of Boston.
Their eldest dau. Margaret mar. James Gooding, jun., of Noddle's Island,
and they had Eichard Gooding, b. 18 Oct., 1700.

Ann Davenport m. Thomas Russell 5 Sept., 1700, and had William, b. 4 Mav,
1701; Ann, b. 15 Nov., 1702; Thomas, b. 1 Sept., 1705; Ann, b. 7 Oct., 1706;
Sarah, b. 7 July, 1709.

William 7 Snelling, son of Dr. William, 6 d. 1678, and doubtless practiced as a
physician, as Sewall mentions, under date 3 Sept., 1676, sending to Dr. Snelling
for professional advice.

By the marriage of Dr. William's daughters, and through their children, there
were doubtless descendants of Dr. William, though Savage states there were
none.

Bridgman, in his Copps' Hill, gives John* as the father of a Thomas who emi-
grated to America (1640-1650), with an English pedigree.

Samuel Caffinch. Ten pounds in money in the hands of Elizabeth Higgiu-
son, widow, which I lent to her deceased husband Theophilus Higgiuson in

[Mark Pierce in 1642 owned an estate at the N. E. corner of Holyoke and
Mt. Auburn streets, in Cambridge, Mass., the next year removing to New
Haven, at which place he was known as a public surveyor and teacher of a pri-
vate school. Previously, in 1639, he is found there on a list of those subscrib-
ing to a fundamental agreement. In 1643 he is on a rate list, and also fined one
shilling, with Theophilus Higgiuson and others, for being late at training. He
took the oath of fidelity 1 July, 1044; he was appointed to view meadows 16
June, 1645, and assigned a seat in the meeting-house 10 March, 1646-7.

Robert Newman was doubtless that one who came in the Mary and John, and

daughters baptized (in 1642 and 1646) ; some years before the date of the above
