Ally, Thomas, Newbury, m. 9 Feb. 1672, Sarah, d. of Thomas Sil-

Ajrfj|N, iJoHN, Hartford, s. of Matthew, b. in Eng. m. 19 Nov. 1651,
Annj^Pof Henry Smith of Springfield, gr.d. of William Pynchon, had
Ann, b. 18 Aug. 1654; Mary, 3 Apr. 1657; Margai-et, 29 July 1660;
Rebecca, 2 Mar. 1665, d. young; Martha, 27 July 1667; and Eliz. 1
Dec. 1669. By sec. w. Hannah, d. of George Lamberton, wid. of Sam-
uel Welles of Wethersfield, I suppose, he had no ch. He was many
yrs. Seer, of the Col. after 1657, when he was lieut. rose to be col. an
Assist.in 1662, and many yrs. foil, and of the Counc. under Sir Edmund
Andros in 1687, and d. 6 Nov. 1696, leav. large est. to the five ds. Ann
m. 1676, as his sec. w. Joseph Whiting of Hartford; Mary m. 6 Oct.
1686, Col. William Whiting; Margaret m. a. 1684, William Southmayd
of Middletown, as his sec. w. Martha m. Aaron Cooke the third; and
Eliz. m. 21 Dec. 1704, as his sec. w. Alexander Allen of Windsor ; and
next John Gardiner of Gardiner's isl. Increase Mather includes, in his
Eelat. of Ind. Wars, the Account of the troubles preced. and during that
with the Pequots, writ, by AUyn, filling 19 of his pages. John, New
London, only s. of Robert, m. 24 Dec. 1668, Eliz. d. of John Gager, had
Eliz. b. 24 Dec. 1669 ; and Robert, a. mid. of Sept. 1671. He had
helped in the settlem. of Norwich, but after d. of his f. went to N. L.
there d. 1709. John, Barnstable, s. of Thomas, m. Mary Howland, had
John, b. 3 Apr. 1671 ; Mary, 5 Aug. 1^75, d. young; Matthew, 6 Aug.
1677, d. young ; Isaac, 8 Nov. 1679 ; and he rem. with his fam. J * Mat-
THEVf, Cambridge 1632, was perhaps s. of Samuel of Chelmsford, Co.
Essex, freem. 4 Mar. 1635, rep. at March Gen. Ct. 1636, rem. prob. next
yr. to Hartford, thence in few yrs. to Windsor, for wh. he was rep. 1648
to 57, Assist. 1658 to 67, and chos. Commissr. for Unit. Col. 1660 and 4,
d. 1671. His ch. were all prob. b. in Eng. John, Thomas, and Mary,
wh. m. 11 June 1646, Benjamin Newberry, and his will of 30 Jan. 1671
names these and the gr.ch. Mary, d. of Newberry. Common, in his
autoT. the name has y, but high authority assures me, that it is not
always so ; and in the rec. and print, books, it is nearly as often seen with
e as without. Obadiah, Middletown, propound, for freem. Oct. 1 672,
adm. next yr. m. 28 Oct. 1669, Eliz. d. of Thomas Sanford of Milford,
had Obadiah, b. 20 Sept. 1670; Thomas, 20 Sept. 1672, d. in few wks.
Thomas, again, 27 Sept. 1673; Mary, 15 Sept. 1,675; Ann, 12 Sept.
1677; Thankful, 8 Sept. 1679; Samuel, 15 Mar. 1684; and John, 27
Sept. 1686 ; was deac. and d. 7 Apr, 1712. Prob. he was neph. of the
first Thomas, and the descend, have generally chang. the spell, to Allen.
Robert, Salem, 1637, adm. of the ch. 15 May 1642, had John, and


Sarah there bapt. Sunday foil, and Mary, 19 Nov. 1648; in 1651 rem.
to New London, and to the then adjoin, town of Norwich at its first set-
tlem. 1659 ; but, high as is her authority on such a point, I hesitate to
adopt Miss Caulkins's opin. that, intermed. betw. Salem and New l^don,
he was of Saybrook. Tho. honor, with the office of constable at iBPvich
1669, he went back to N. L. and there d. 1683, where part of his farm
preserves in the harbor the name of AUyn's- point. Other ch. beside
those at Salem he had, as Hannah and Deborah, both prob. at N. L.
Sarah m. 17 Feb. 1659, George Geer ; Hannah m. Thomas Eose; and
Deborah was unm. at d. of f. * Samoel, Barnstable, s. of Thomas of
the same, m. 10 May 1664, Hannah, d. of Rev. Thomas Walley, had
Thomas, b. 22 Mar. 1665 ; Samuel, 19 Jan. 1667 ; Joseph, 7 Apr. 1671 ;
Hannah, 4 Mar. 1673; and Eliz. 26 Nov. 1681, wh. d. at 17 yrs. was
rep. three yrs. 1682-4. His w. d. 23 Oct. 1711, and he d. 25 Nov. 1726.
* Thomas, Wethersfield 1636, not migrat. from Watertown, for Bond
has not nam. him, was br. of Matthew, with wh. he had extraord. con-
trovers, in the law, as is fairly infer, from Trumbull's Col. Eec. I. 211,
was made freem. 1652, rep. 1656; and soon after d. as might be con-
clud. from not seeing his name as rep. in any yr. subseq. nor in the list
of freem. for that town 1669; yet he may have rem. to Middletown, as
no list of that sort is found from that place in Trumbull, and one of the
name there was deac. wh. d. 16 Oct. 1688, having had no ch. but leav.
wid. Martha, perhaps, wh. had been wid. of Roger Jepson, and d. 1690.
She calls, in her will, Obadiah A. of M. cousin. 71 not e is seen in his
last syl. tho. in his bapt. rec. Apr. 1604 (if he were s. of Samuel of
Chelmsford Co. Essex), the spell, is the other way. Thomas, Barnsta-
ble, had Samuel, b. 10, bapt. 18 Feb. 1644; John, bapt. 27 Sept. 1646;
and Mehitable, bapt. 26 Nov. 1648; and he d. Nov. 1680, at gr. age.
Mehitable m. 1 June 1667, Samuel Annable of the same. His first w. was
nam. Winifred ; the sec. was a wid. but surnames are not found. Thomas,
Windsor, s. of Matthew of the same, perhaps b. in Eng. m. Oct. 1658, Abi-
gail, d. of Rev. John Warham, had John, b. 17 Aug. 1659, wh. d. young;
Matthew, 5 Jan. 1661; Thomas, 11 Mar. 1663; John, again, 1665;
Samuel, 3 Nov. 1667 ; Jane, 22 July 1670 ; Abigail, 17 Oct. 1672 ; Sa-
rah, 13 July 1674 ; Esther, 29 Jan. 1676 ; and Benjamin, 1680. He was
made freem. 1659, and. esteem, in the milit. serv. in wh. he rose to be
capt. and d. 14 Feb. 1696. Thomas, Windsor, s. of the preced. m. 168.6,
Martha, sec. d. of Simon Wolcott, wh. d. 7 Sept. of next yr. and in any
other particul. nothing is kn. William, Stonington, had John, George,

Allyne, or Alleyne, I must confess, that, after long research, satisfact. is
unattain. in sev. cases, so many individ. have, perhaps capricious, at va-
rious times, writ, their fam. names in differ, ways.

Almt, or Almond, JChristopheb, Portsmouth, E. I. s. of William,
b. in Eng. was an Assist. 1 690. Job, Portsmouth, E. I. br. of the preced.
by w. Mary, d. of Christopher Unthank of Warwick, had William' and
Christopher, tw. Susanna, Audrey, Deborah, Catharine, and Mary, all
perhaps minors, when he d. 1684. John, Plymouth 1643, perhaps br.
of the preced. m. Mary, d. of James Cole, rem. to Portsmouth, E. I. was
a capt. in Philip's war, 1675, as named in Church's Mem. 53, and d.
1676. William, Lynn, perhaps as early as 1631, went home, and came
again, 1635, in the Abigail, aged 34, with w. Audrey, 32, and ch. Annis,
8 ; and Christopher, 3 ; rem. 1 637, prob. to Sandwich, and certainly was
freem. of Portsmouth, E. I. 1655. His will names ch. Christopher,
John, Job, Ann, w. of John Green, and Catharine, w. of a West, whose
bapt. name is not seen.

Alsop, or Alsup, Daniel, New Haven, youngest s. of Joseph the
first d. 11 Jan. 1689). prob. unm. George, Milford 1667, d. a. 1680 ;
but was not constant resid. there, and noti^of w. or ch. is not found, so
that prob. he never m. Perhaps Eliz. jKiem. of the ch. at M. in Feb.
1643, was his sis. for Sylvanus Baldwin, her s. b. some yrs. after her
m. that yr. with Eichard B. calls bims. " near kinsman " of George A.
Joseph, New Haven, had come, at the age of 14, to Boston in the Eliz-
abeth and Ann, 1 635, from London, went to New Haven early, took o.
of fidel. in 1644, bef 1647 m. Eliz. the eldest d. of William Preston, had
Joseph; Eliz. b. 22 June 1650; Sarah, 8 Sept. 1652, but by ch. rec.
worthy of very little regard, 15 Sept. 1651 ; Mary, 3 Oct. 1654; Abigail,
4 Sept. not as ch. rec. says 4 Nov. 1656 ; all bapt. 26 Apr. 1657 ; Han-
nah, b. 2 Dec. 1659 ; John, 3 Jan. 1662 ; Lydia, 26 July 1665; Daniel,
13 Aug. 1667; and Jemima, 10 Feb. 1670. He d. 8 Nov. 1698; and
of the ch. this report is giv. Sarah, d. prob. unm. 24 Jan. 1699 ; Mary
m. 2 Nov. 1680, as his sec. w. John Miles; Abigail m. 14 July 1680,
John Eowe; Lydia m. 8 Nov. 1688, James Trowbridge; one m. Thomas
Talmadge ; and one, perhaps the same, m. John Paine. Hannah was a
busy money making maiden, wh. was Adm'x of est. of her br. Daniel,
and yrs. after bot. up the shares of her sis. in the est. of her f. manag. by
her with much discret. Haz. II. 247. Joseph, New Haven, eldest s. of
the preced. m. 25 Nov. 1672, Abigail, d. of John Thompson the first of
the same,andd. 12 Jan. 1691. His will, of 1687,pro. 16 Feb. 1691,gave
to his w. (wh. prob. had no ch.) and his brs. John and Daniel, all his est.
a. £490. Key, Boston 1668, merch. had w. Mary, who soon after his
d. m. Capt. William Turner, whose victory at the Falls fight, 1676, gave


his name to the spot. Eichard, Newtown, L. I. 1686, by w. Hannah
had Thomas, b. 7 Sept. 1687; Eichard; John; Hannah; Deborah;
Amy; and Eliz. d. Oct. 1718, aged 58 ; but his wid. wh. d. 23 Aug. 1757,
was 90. He is suppos. to have been brot. in youth by his uncle Thomas
Warden of Newtown, wh. had no ch. and gave A- large est. See Biker's
Ann. of Newtown, 335. Thomas, Stratford, wh. came in the Elizabeth
and Ann from London, 1635, aged 20, 1 think must have been br. of Jo-
seph of New Haven, as they came together, and the younger, in 1651,
inform, the Court, that his br. without nam. him, had d. at S. leav. some
prop, and no more is kn. It may be, that the f. of these youths was that
John, rated for a subsidy in 1598, to the same parish and at the same
time with "William Shakespear, nor would it be very extrav. to presume,
that he, too, went up to London from Stratford on Avon. See my notes
on Edward Jackson. Timothy, New Haven 1646, mariner.

Alsob, Thomas, Salem vill. was a soldier, k. by the Ind. 16 July
(unless 1 6 May be nearer the day of fight, and the other only date of rec.)
1690, with others at Casco. See Felt Ann. IL 509. Yet Willis L 205,
refer, to the same rec. spells the sufferer's name, as, seems, at least, equal,
likely to be correct, Alsop. But I would gladly see his origin.

Alvord, Alexander, "VS^Ior, m. 29 Oct. 1646, Mary, d. of Eichard
Vore, or Voar, had Abigail, b^Oct. 1647 ; John, 12 Aug. 1649 ; Maryj,
