it in my mind when searching the register; so presume I could not find any
baps, or marriages of the name.

Act Book 1 July 1623.

[In Harl. MS. 1096 (fol. 20), is given a pedigree of this family of Lock or
Lok. On fol. 33 b of the same MS. I note that Mathew Loke, born 23 February
1521, of London, merchant, the 9 th child and last of Sir William Locke by his
first wife, had a daughter and sole heir Elizabeth, the wife of Richard Cande-
ler of London, mercer. Their daughter Elizabeth was married to Ferdinando
Richardson als Heborne, who is called groom of the Privy Chamber to Queen
Mary; but in Harl. MS. 1541 (fol. 188), he is called Sir Ferdinando Ilayborne,
Knight, Groom Porter of the Privy Chamber to Queen Elizabeth, and his wife

Stafford, 8.

[I have ventured to insert the above will for the reason that the names of
Michael, John, Robert and Thomas were to be found among our earliest Einer-
sons in Essex County, Massachusetts Bay.— H. F. W.

The parties, named above, may have been kinsfolks of the Haverhill, Mass.,
Emersons; but the families at liaverhill were certainly of a later generation.

Michael Emerson appeared in Haverhill in 1656, and married, the next spring,
Hannah, a daughter of John Webster of Newbury. Their eldest child, Han-
nah, married Thomas Dustin and was the heroine of the massacre of Indians,

Robert Emerson, who married Ann Grant, was a householder at Haverhill in


Thomas Emerson, wife and two children were killed by Indians, 1G97. He
had brothers, Joseph and Stephen.

These, with Samuel, who married Judith Davis, were residents at Haverhill,
where descendants are yet numerous.

Thomas Emerson at Ipswich, 1G35, brought with him children born in Eng-
land. He was the ancestor of a long line of distinguished New England rem-
itters, the most noted of whom was the poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson. No con-
nection between the Haverhill and Ipswich families has been discovered.
