PREFACE.

The following Genealogies, originally prepared at different times, with variou
degrees of minuteness and extent of research, and brought down to different dates
were designed, and some of them proposed for insertion in the Genealogical Register
This was°done under the impression that each article might appear continuously ii
one vol. of that Periodical, and be as attracting and available as if published in an
other form or connection. But on further information I find that the longer articles
to gain admission, must be divided into several parts, inserted here and there, mixei
with other historical and genealogical matter, and be delayed for a perilous time
and even beyond the probable expectancy of life in some who have expressed mm
interest in the publication. I have therefore decided to issue my collections in th
following form, believing that this will prove more satisfactory than the one originall
proposed.

This change enhance:; the cost of publication without giving the subscribe
an equal number of pages or amount of matter ; but this will be made up in th
binding of the work, and, as it is hoped, in the greater satisfaction of finding, inserte
continuously, in the same vol., not only the race, with which his name is arrangec
but also, other cognate races through which in female lines he may derive his descer
from other and different stocks.

To those then who pledged their patronage to the other form of issue, will copie
of this be forwarded at prices barely sufficient to cover the outlay, which has bee
surprisingly great. This, if stated, all might not appreciate. Indeed, none but th
experienced in this department of toil, perplexity and expense could be expecte
to do so. But I have not labored without pay ; for the months and years of lonel
seclusion devoted to the work have abounded with seasons of sweet communion wit
departed worth, and delightful views of former days. Nor do # I send forth th
humble and imperfect production without hopes of future reward ; for weak an
treacherous as human gratitude is, I may gain her thanks from breasts where r<
finement and humility dwell, for the introduction here given to forgotten ancestor
honored of God in their day with a part in that mighty agency which is changin
the condition of mankind and the aspect of the world ; to ancestors who cooperate
to found the institutions in which we glory ; and who becpieathed to us an ope
Bible and uncorrupted gospel, and followed us in their prayers which are no
being answered in our happiest experience.

Nor is this all. There is pleasure in the hope that useful history has bee
snatched from oblivion, and landmarks pointed out for future and more successfi
explorations ; that many will be moved to perfect and transmit their genealogy ; an
that generations to come will be supplied with a Directory for finding their kindre
of another sex, that they may decline alliances interdicted by nature and her Autho
and be saved from the sin of defeating wholly or in part a chief object of the
earthly mission.

The Genealogies here presented are in all cases as complete to 1800 as the re<
ords consulted, and far more so. Thousands of names are here recorded for th
first time ; and thousands of others, on no public record, may yet be added in supple
ments, if those noticing the omissions will report them. And are none of the:
kindred or descendants interested to do so ? Will it not be an act of kindness t
preserve evidence of their legitimacy ? and also of their descent from the remote:
ancestor remembered ? The first edition of any Genealogical work is never withoi
errors. This, with all the care I have le.-towed, must have them. These, it is hopec
will be carefully and immediately pointed out in writing, that they may be hereafte
corrected ; and as the Adams, Bullard, Holbrook, Rockwood, Phipps and Sangc
races arc designed to be continued, any of either of these races arc especially recpueste
to report whatever needs correction or addition. ABNEIl MORSE.

Sherboro, Middlesex Co.. Mass., Sept. 15, 1855.



EXPLANATION.



( in the left of DBmes and next to the left hand margin are two columns of Arabic
figures : the right band column consisting of running numbers, and the left hand of
rring numbers. The latter, if before a father's name, (and then it is ever less
than the No. to the right of it) refers back to the same figures in the column of run-
oing Nos. where his name occurs as a child. If the referring No. is before a child's
name, ( ami then it is always larger than the No. to the right,) it refers onward to
the same ligurcs in the column of running Nos. where he occurs as a father. Names
haying no referring Nos. before them, are either traced no further, or they have their
i dants arranged immediately below their names.

Dates following the names of wives without the word awe? intervening, refer to her.

Numerical letters before the names of children denote their No., which must not
be eunfounded with the running numbers in Arabic figures. These numerical letters
are dropped when the child becomes a parent.

Small figures after namesmark their generations, their Puritan ancestor being ac-
counted the first.

? after a figure, denotes the reference not certain.

'.'after a name, signifies that it is inferred from circumstantial evidence or doubtful
records, or that it has not been traced.

Initial letters are put for the names of places immediately after they have been
spelled.

The practice of double dating between Jan. 1st and March 25th, — thus 1675-6,
until the introduction of N. S. in 1752, is retained to prevent confusion, and enable
families to compare and correct their dates.

X. B. Prior to 1752, the civil year began in March, which was called the first
month, April 2d month, often expressed thus, — 25 (2) i. e. 25th day, 2d month.
To render I >. S. into N. S., the first month must be accounted the 3d, and ten days
bo ad. led to all dates between 1582 and 1700, and eleven days to dates between
L700 and 1752. For the single year 1600, eleven days must be added.
