land genealogists tell us who those grandchildren were? The will of Mrs.
Brand shows us who his wife was, and gives the names of other children. Ben-
jamin Brand (or Brond) went over to New England (with Winthrop I think;.
Perhaps the Life and Letters of John Winthrop may throw some light on the
question. H. F. W.]
