In ful ripe yeres he died & hath a blessed place.

Hee departed Septemb. 22° A 1605 the 72 l1 yere of his age.

Mr. Duncan was also kind enough to give me a little photographic copy of a
fine rubbing he had taken from another beautiful brass in the same church.
This brass shows the figures of another Richard Manning (cousin of the above)
and his wife. Above their heads is a shield bearing the arms of Manning, with
a crescent for difference, and below their feet the following inscription : —

Here lyeth buried the body of Richard Manning soiie of John Manning
gen 1 , who tooke to wife Rachael one of y e davghters and coheyres of Wil-
liam White of Hamsteed in Middlesex with whome having happily lyved
to the service of God and relife of the poore 39 yeares in the 63 d yeare of
his age he dyed withovt issve the 18 of January 1604. His wife yet svr-
viving pvrposeth by Gods permission to be here interred by him at hir
death in whose fellowship she enioyed y e comfort of her life.

Among other notes which Mr. Duncan gave me was the following from Feet
of Fines, Greenwich, 39 Edw. III. Simon Manning of Codham Kent and
Katherine his wife convey lands to Robert Attewode fee. This must have been
that Simon Manning whose wife Katherine, according to the pedigree, was a
sister of Geoffrey Chaucer.

George Mannyug gen', was intended as a governor of the Free School which
Queen Elizabeth contemplated establishing at Lewisham in 1574. A tenement
of Henry Manning's is mentioned at Eltham in 1605.

The will of Thomas Reston of Eltham, dated 1G01, proved at Rochester, men-
tions " house and lands in Crokenhill in tenure of my brother Richard Man-
nynge." (From Mr. Duncan's notes.)

In a Survey of Eltham, temp. Hen. VIII., Widow Manning is mentioned, alsc
the heirs of Robert Mannyng 37 acres. (Mr. Duncan.)

The Henry Manning (brother of George) whose daughter Fortune Mildred
became the wife of Thomas Whitfield of Mortlake is styled on the pedigree
" Marescallus Hospitii H. 8 " &c. In an old book called The Present State of
London, by Tho : Delaune (London 1C90) I found the following description of
that office : —

■' The Knight Marshal, called Mareschalus Hospitii Regis, hath Jurisdiction and
Cognizance of ail Crimes within the Royal Palace, whereuuto one of the Parties
is the King's servant. He is one of Judges of the Court called the Marshalsea,
or Marshal-Seat of Judicature, which is held in Southwmrk, and hath there a
Prison belonging to the same. Upon Solemn Occasions he rides before the
King with a short Baston tipt at both ends with Gold, and hath six Provost
Marshals or Virgers in Scarlet Coates to wait on him, and to take care of the
Royal Palace, that no Beggars, Vagabonds, Common Women, that pi'ostitute
their Bodies, Malefactors, &c. come within or near the Court."

I doubt if Leonard Mannying, whose will (1545) is the second in my collection,
belonged to this family, but I have concluded to let it stand. Hugh Mannynge
of Todingtou (will 1557-1558) the father of Thomas, Richard, William and
Mylh'S, was the son of John Manning of Downe by his wife Thomasiu and so
the half brother of Henry the father of Mrs. Whitfield and of George the father
of Mrs. Waters.

The will of John Mannyng (1583) introduces a group of brothers some of
whose wills appear from time to time in this collection but whose parentage is
nowhere made definitely known. These brothers, John, Richard, James, Henry,
William, Hugh, Thomas and Martin Manning and their sister Ursula (Botley),
I would suggest, were the children of William Manning, one of the three sons



1340 GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND.

of Richard, of St. Mary Cray, younger brother of John of Downe. And I aia
conlirmed in this by an extract which I made years ago from Morgan's Sphere
of Gentry and also by Harl. MS. 147G. Thomas Manninge, Avhose will A\as
proved 14 June 1583, was clearly another of these three sons of Richard.

I now come to some Mannings whom I cannot place at all, although they must
have belonged to this family if we can accept the declaration of one of them,
viz., Edmond Manning of Clifton in Dadington, Oxfordshire, who in his will
(1538), besides mentioning brothers Matthew and Simon and sundry sisters,
referred to Henry Manning of Kent as his cousin and named him and Henry
Manning of Greenwich as two of his overseers. The family of his Kentish
cousin, indeed, were to have the reversion of a house and land, in Northamp-
tonshire after the death of his brother Matthew. This Henry Manning of Kent
must have been one of thoso eight brothers to Avhom I have referred above as
the children of William Manning, for in his will, made in 1G10 but proved in
1620, he speaks of this reversionary interest.

The William Manning who married Susanna Kirkener was probably the son
of Hugh and so a nephew, of the half blood, to the Henry Manning of Green-
wich who married Catherine Kirkener.

From the wills of John Morse (1G15) and Anne Barnewell (1G28) I am led to
infer that the latter was that daughter of Thomas Willoughby, Dean of Roches-
ter, whoAvas married to Edward Manning. She aftenvards became the wife of
Mr. Henry Barnewell. Her daughter Joan married (1) John Morse and (2)
Jeremy Bieijs.

Henry Manninge the talloAvchandler of London Avhose Avill was proved in 1G32
must have been the fourth son of Peter and Elizabeth Manning. His "will is im-
portant for its mention of his cousin Richard Waters, and Richard Waters
signed the will as a Avitness.

The genealogical value of the Avill of John Webb (1G24-1G25) can hardly be
overestimated, mentioning, as he docs, Avife Dorothy and brethren in law
Thomas Manning and William Blasse. It is just this mention of William
Plasso Avhich settles the problem of the maternal ancestry of our Richard
Waters of Salem. In the Manning pedigree (Harl. MS. 1548) Ave see that two
of the daughters of George Manning of Downe Averc Dorathea ux. Joh'is Webb
and Phebc ux. Jacobi Waters. Now James Waters of London left a widow Phebe
and a son Richard. William Plasse, a erunsmith, married this widow Phebe. A
William Plasse, gunsmith, came to Salem and also a Richard Waters. At the
death of William Plasse this Richard Waters calls himself son in law (/. e.
stepson) of the deceased. In 1879 I found the will of James Waters of London
and published a very meagre abstract of it (Gleanings &c. by Emmerton and
Waters, Essex Institute, Salem, Mass., pp. 121-3). A larger abstract here
follows.

James Waters of the parish of St. Buttolph without Algate, Lon-
don, citizen and ironmonger of London, 17 May 1G17, proved 16 February
1617. To be buried in the South church yard of the parish church of St.
Buttolph without Algate, aforesaid, whereof I am a parishioner, in or near

worldly goods and chattells as God hath blessed me, and at the time of my
decease shall bless me withal, I will the same shall be divided into three
equal parts and portions according to the laudable Custom of the City of
London, one full third part, whereof I give and bequeath unto my loving
wife Phebe Waters, one other full third part I give and bequeath unto un-
loving child Richard Waters and the other third part thereof I reserve to

The following extract from Marriage Allegations, Bishop of London, should
come in here : —

I am indebted to the Rev' 1 Charles H. Pope for the following extracts taken
by him last year from the Parish Registers of St. Botolph's : —

The earliest mention of the family found at St.- Botolph's Aldgate.

Frederick, son to Richard Waters, bapt. April 7, 1577.
John, son of James Waters, Citizen and Ironmonger, bapt. Nov. 30,
1600.
John, same name buried July 21, 1624.
Phebe, dau. bapt. Dec. 6, 1602.

* James Waters buried Feb. 2, 1617.

" William Plasse, gunsmith, and Phebe Waters, widow, late wife to James
Waters Citizen and Ironmonger were married by a license, the xxiii day of
Fehruarie, A. D. 1618."

William Plasse, as I have -aid. came to Salem where the town in 1G37 granted,
for him and his wife, the house formerly Mr. Conant's, with a half acre of land
attached, etc. and in 1G13 they appointed a committee to provide for him a con-
venient room to work in and to set a f orcje, etc. He died in 1646 and his estate was
administered by Thomas Wickes or Weeks whose wife Alice (afterwards the
wife of Nicholas Potter) and two children, Hannah, wife of John Pickman, and
Bethia, wife of John Archer, are afterwards found in occupancy of the real es-
tate, which was opposite our Market place or Derby Square. The gunsmith's
tools were found to be in the possession of Richard Waters who, in a document,
now extant in the Court House at Salem, calls himself a son-in-law of the de-
ceased.

This Richard Waters, son of James and Phebe (Manning') Waters of London,
probably came to New Entrland with his stepfather Mr. Plasse and settled in
Salem. His house stood close to Cat Cove on Salem Neck near that estate
one known as Hollingwortli's, afterwards as Ilathorne's Farm and more re-
cently as Howell's. The exact date of his death I have not ascertained, but the
Inventory of his estate was taken 25-7-1G77. His will, dated 1G July 1G7G,
was proved 28-9-1677. In it he names wife Joyce and sons William, James,
John and Ezekicl. William was to be maintained during his natural life by his
brother Ezekicl, or if not by Ezekicl then by John. The daughters named are
Martha. Abigail Punchard, Mary English, Susana Pulsiuer and Ilanna Striker.
The baptisms of some of these children are given in the Register of the First
Church. Salem, as follows: — a child (probably John) bap. 27-9-1G40; Elizabeth
bap. 26-12-1642-3 (died 3-12-1662); Abigail bap. 18-3-1645 (mar. William Pun-
chard 26 Oct. 1669); Ezekiel bap. 9-2-1G47 (mar. and had issue) ; Susanna bap.

1-2-1G49 (mar. Benedict Pulsifer (Ipswich), Feb. 1(573); Hannah bap. 30-11-
1G52-3 (mar. Joseph Striker 10-2-1G73). Mary rnar. Clement English 27 Aug.
1GG7. James removed to Topsfleld, married and left issue, of whom Daniel (I
believe) removed to Norfolk County, where he left issue. Besides the children
above named I suspect that Richard and Joyce (or Rejoice) Waters had another
daughter Phebe Waters whom I find married to Thomas West 11-8-1G58. She
died 1G-2-1674, and Mr. West married (2) Mary Teunee 14-8-1G74.

John Waters (son of Richard and Joyce) married 1-G-1GG3 Sara Tompkins a
daughter of John Tompkins, bap. 1-11-1G42. He lived in North Field, now
North Salem, and owned land on Royal (or Riall) Side, now in Beverly. His
will, dated 14 Feb. 170G-7, was sworn to as the will of John WatersSen r . 1
March 1707-8. He mentions his wife, without naming her, and names three
sons, John, Richard and Nathaniel, and three daughters, Elizabeth (unmarried)
and daughters Symonds and Jacobs. From the records I get the following
children of John and Sara Waters.

Tolin I Dorn * ast °f J une 16G4 ; died within a fortnight.

John born 4 July 1GG5 ; mar. Mary .

Sara born 30 June 1GG7; mar. John Symonds 3 Mar. 1G89-90.

Richard born 13 Nov. 1GG9; ancestor (I believe) of the Waters family of Sut-
ton and Millbury.

Nathaniel born G-12-1G71; His widow Elizabeth received grant of admon. 5
Mar. 1717-18.

Samuel born 29 Mar. 1G74 ; died five weeks after.

Samuel born G May 1G75.

Elizabeth born 10-1 1-1G77 ; Admon. gr. to her bro. John 13 Nov. 1734 (Johu
Felton surety.)

Abigail bap. G May 1G83; mar. John Jacobs.

John Waters junior (son of above) mar. Mary , whose parentage I

have not learned, but who received baptism, as an adult, in First Church, Sa-
lem, 19 April 1702. He also lived in North Field and owned land on Royal Side.
In his will, dated 10 Feb. 1741(2) and proved 5 April 1742 he calls himself
houscwright and names son John, daughter Sarah (unmarried) and daughters
Mary Felton, Lydia Proctor, Eunice Gardner and Abigail Porter. From the
records I get the following : —

John bap. 19 July 1702; mar. (1) Elizabeth Gardner 30 Nov. 1721 and (2)
wid. Abigail Putnam 9 Dec. 1747.

Mary bap. 19 July 1702; mar. Felton (see Genealogy of the Felton

Family.)

Sarah bap. 19 July 1702; living single in 17G0.

Lydia bap. 12 March 1704; mar. John Proctor junior 14 Dec. 1727.

Eunice bap. 18 Aug. 170G; mar. Thomas Gardner (pub. 21 Dec. 1728).

Abigail bap. 12 June 17()9; mar. Eleazar Porter (pub. 2 Sept. 1732).

John Waters (son of above) married, as we have seen, two wives. His first
wife, the mother of all his children, was Elizabeth Gardner, born 30 March 1701,
eldest daughter of Mr. Abel Gardner (son of Samuel and Mary (White) Gard-
ner) by Sarah, daughter of Mr. Israel and Elizabeth (Hathornc) Porter. The
will of this John Waters, made 29 April 17G0 and proved 2G May 17G0, refers to
his land in North Field on Royal Side and names wife Abigail, sisters Mary Fel-
ton, Lydia Proctor and Sarah Waters, sons John and Abel and daughters Eliza-
beth Jacobs, Mary Shillabcr, Lydia Putnam, Abigail Waters and Eunice Waters.
Of these daughters Mary, bap. 4 May 1735 was married, 2 December 1755 to
Capt. William Shillaber. The late well known Fitch Poole Esq. married a
granddaughter of this William and Mary (Waters) Shillaber and had by her
(besides other issue) Elizabeth Poole now the wife of my friend Mr. George W.
Benson of Salem.

Capt. John Proctor who married Lydia Waters (see above) died in 1773, leav-
ing sons Benjamin, Silvester and Joseph Proctor and daughters Lydia Flint,
Mary Osborne, Sarah Gould and Prudence Bufnnton. His eldest son, Johu
Proctor, had predeceased him (in 1771) leaving (with other issue) a son John-
son Proctor who married, 31 Dee. 1789, another Lydia Waters, daughter of Abel
Waters and grand daughter of John and Elizabeth (Gardner) Waters. They
were the parents of Abel Proctor, the father of Lydia Waters, wife of the Rev.

Sarah Waters, another daughter of Abel Waters and granddaughter of John

Whittredge. Through this match other of our Salem and Boston families derive
their descent from the family of Manning of Kent. — II. F. W.]

Additional Notks about the Proctor Family.

Iu my researches made in the Court House at Salem about these Proctors I
gathered certain facts ■which justify me, I believe, in venturing to correct Sav-
age's statements about the first two John Proctors. He says that the first John
Proctor of Ipswich came 1635 £et. 40, from London in the Susan and Ellen with
wife Martha, set. 28 and children, John 3 and Mary 1, and in a few years was
settled at Salem. His wife died 13 June 1G59; but he took a second wife of the
same baptismal name who outlived him &c. Of John Proctor the son (after-
wards condemned for witchcraft), he says that he married, December 1G62,
Elizabeth daughter of John Thorndike, who died in August (30 th ) 1672, and
had, for a second wife, Elizabeth Bassett, married 1 April 1074.

Let me now give some of the facts which I have found. The transcripts
from Ipswich town records give me the following births, deaths and marriages :

Mary dau. of John Prockter born 1 January 1657.

Mary dau. of John Prockter died — February 1 657.

Maitha dau. of John Prockter jun' died 14 October 1658.

John son of John Prockter jun r died in October 1658.

Benjamin son of John Prockter born 10 June 1659.

Martha wife of John Prockter died 13 June 1659.

John Prockter and Elizabeth Thorndick married — December 1662.

Martha dau. of John Prockter born 1 April and died 10 May 1665.

Benjamin Procter and Deborah Hart married — February 1673.

In the Court records and files I got certain depositions showing ages as fol-
lows : —

John Prockter Sen* speaks of '• my brother Giddens " 26 March 1667,
calling himself aged 75 years. (George Giddiug aged 59.)

Benjamin Procter aged about 17 years in 1668.

John Procter, about 40, deposes 18-5-1676.

John Proctor being presented, 25-9-1678, for selling strong water and
cider to Indians two of his children give their depositions 29-9-1678, viz 1 .
Elizabeth, his daughter, about 16, and Benjamin, his son, about 18.

John Proctor seu r , about 54, and Benjamin Proctor, about 26, make
depositions 30 November 1686.

The first John Proctor, of Ipswich (I doubt if he ever lived iu Salem) must
have died before 11 Oct. 1G72, when an inventory of his estate was taken. His
will, as Savage says, names wife Martha, grandchildren Martha Hartley and
Johnlla(rtlcy,) daughters Martha White, Abigail Varney, Sarah Dort.se and Han-
nah Weden and sons John, Joseph and Benjamin. Martha was probably the
wife of James White (who was present in jail when the second John Proctor
made Ins. will), Abigail was the wife of Thomas Varney and Sarah was the wife
of John Dodge (son of William Dodge senior).

In view of all these facts I would infer that all those children whose births
and deaths were recorded in Ispwieh during the years 1G57, 1G58 and 1G59 and
the Martha who was born and died in 1GG5 were the children of the second John
Proctor ; that the Mrs. Martha Proctor who died 13 June 1G59 was his wife, not
his father's, and that she died in childbed three days after the birth of her last



1344 GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND.

(and only surviving) child Benjamin Proctor whom we find still living in 1686,
according to his own deposition; that the earlier Benjamin Proctor who was
about 17 in 1668 was the youngest son of the first John Proctor and the one who
married Deborah Hart in 1673 (4) ; and, finally, that young Elizabeth Proctor
who deposed in 1678 was the eldest child of the second John Proctor by his
second (not first) wife Elizabeth Thorndike. She it must have been who was
married to Thomas Very and received a child's portion in the disposition of her
father's estate as Elizabeth Very, while another portion was awarded to an
Elizabeth Proctor who was doubtless one of the daughters of John Proctor's
third wife Elizabeth Bassctt.

It was Benjamin Proctor, born in 1659, eldest son (by first wife) of John
Proctor of Salem, who was the father of the Capt. John Proctor who married
Lydia Waters and great grandfather of the Johnson Proctor who married a
later Lydia Waters.

I found in a transcript from the Lynn records that a Benjamin Proctor mar-
ried Mary Bulkeley 18 Dec. 1694, while another account, furnished by one of
the family, says that Benjamin Proctor married Mary Whiteredge 8 Dec. 1694.
This matter needs more careful examination than I can give to it at present.
