Sarah, wife of George Betty, in Co. Somerset.

William Jeffrey, Weymouth, one of the earliest set-
tlers in Mass. Bay, before Gov. Winth. or even Capt. En-

dicott; prob. first at Cape Ann, and may have drifted
along shore to Manchester, early called Jeffry's Creek,
or as far as Salem; and Felt claims him for Ipswich,
but, of course, this would be some years later; he was
sworn freeman 1631 ; may have had Mary, born 1642,
and tradition gives him son John. He may be the brother
of Robert, who was in R. I., 1638, and certainly is seen
in list of freemen at Newport, 1655, where he died 1675,
aged 84. His will names wife Mary, eldest daughter

Reference: — Savage's Gen. Diet., II, 541.

JELLETT :— John Jellett, Boston, died 1656, yet it
might seem that he was only trans., since we see no other
mention of him ; but the record of marriage contains that
of William Wardell with widow Eliz. J., and under Gil-
let may be read more of her.

JELLICOE : — Thomas Jellicoe, Middletown, had wife

or may not be the passenger in the Defence, from London,

dition of the family, from Hammersmith, or Hounslow,

to carry water in case of fire.

of New Haven.

Thomas Jenner, Roxbury, about 1634 or 5, removed

months or years; freeman 1636; represent. 1640, and
went to Saco; there preached not long, but went home,
and in 1651 was in Norf'k, so poor as to sell his library.
Another Genner was of Weymouth, at the same time
with this minister, and if his name of bapt. were Thomas,

Thomas and another child were bapt. 1660 ; David, 1663 ;
Sarah, 1667; Samuel, 1669; Eleanor, and Eliz., twins,
1671 ; and Eleanor, 1674; united with the church 1681,
yet was not made freeman, though it is less remarkable,
since in 1682, only two men of that town are found sworn,
and only three others in 1690, among several hundreds
from other towns who took that privilege, 1692. He
was of the artillery comp, 1673, a capt., and prob. that
master of the ship from London to Boston, 1685, with
whom came Honest John Dunton, who calls him a man
with "some smatterings of divinity in his head;" and
died about 1699.

John Jessop, an early sett, at Wethersfield, might
seem to have died at or near Hartford, 1637, as by order
of the Gen. Court, Feb., 1637, all creditors were to pro-
duce claims 3 mos. later, but that means credit, of John
Oldham, and Jessop may have been one prosecuting a suit
before death of O., who might well cause this mention
of him ; so prob. this is the construction. He united with
others in 1640 to go to settle Stamford; removed to
Greenwich; was represent. 1664 for that town, prob. with
Westchester or Rye, and made commissioner with au-
thority at Westchester; but in 1673 lived at Southamp-
