Arch. Suff. (Ipswich) Original Wills (1645), No. 120.

[The above will was not indexed in the Calendar. Nor was it registered. I
came upon it in going through the bundles of original wills. I found that there
was an immense number of wills not registered and many not indexed.

To this family of Yonges undoubtedly belonged John, Joseph and"Christopher
Yonges or Youngs of Salem. Some mention of them will probably be found
in the Essex Institute Historical Proceedings (Salem). Christopher, I think,
removed to Wen ham, and one or both of the other two, I believe, removed to
Southold. Iu Salem, I associate them with the lower part of the town, say
about the neighborhood of English, Webb and Derby Streets. I have not my
notes at hand or I could speak more definitely of the whereabouts of their lots.

I have found the family mentioned occasionally in the wills of the Prerogative
Court.— H. F. Waters.

Christopher Young of Wenham, Mass., left a will dated 9 June, 1647. He
directs his three children to be sent to their native country, Great Yarmouth,
Norfolk, England. But our court decided otherwise. He names father-in-law
Richard Elvin of Gt. Yarmouth, and his wife to whom he bequeaths his two
daughters; his son to John Phillips of Wenham; sisters the wives of Joseph
Young and Thomas Moore. His children are Sarah, Mary, Christopher. (The
latter bapt. 1644.) Esdras Reed of Wenham, Wm. Brown of Salem, and the
wife of Joseph Young, executors.

The son Christopher, I suppose, married Mary Budd, and had sons Christo-
pher and John. The younger Christopher of Southold was son of Rev. John
Young, the pastor there, and born in America.

Margaret, the daughter of the Rev. Christopher Youngs of Reydon, in Suf-
folk, married Capt. Joseph Youngs of Salem and Southold.

Christopher Youngs, sr., was of Southold in 1656. In 1637 "John Yonge
of St. Margretts Suffolk, minister ageed 35 yeares and Joan his wife ageed 34
yeares with 6 children, John Tho., Anne, Rachell, Marey and Joseph" were
examined being "desirous to passe to Salam into New England to inhabit."
(Mass. Hist. Coll., 4th Series, vol. 1, p. 101.) His passage was forbidden, and
when he did come his wife was named Mary. See Thompson's Long Island.
He died 1672 aet. 74.

The statements of Thompson and Griffin must be accepted with caution.
Probably the entire connection of these Southold and Salem Youngs can be
worked out from these wills and the, Essex County records, Salem, and South-
old records.— Eben Putnam.]

[These Kembold and Skott wills (as well as the other Norfolk and Suffolk
wills here published) -were gathered more than ten years ago. When Mr. Mor-
rison was over here in 1889, finding that he was in search of the English home
of the Kimballs of Ipswich, Mass., I had the pleasure of putting him upon the
right track by giving him these notes, all except the will of Robert Whotlock
(brother of Martha Scott), which by some oversight I did not notice when E
was going over my collection with a view to help him. It was this very Martha
Scott who, with her son Thomas Scott and her daughter Ursula Kembold or
Kemball and the latter's husband, Richard Kemball, took passage the last of
April, 1634, in the Elizabeth, William Andrews master, from the port of Ipswich
in old England, and settled in Ipswich, New England.
