'Chief at Hartford until he rem. to Fairfield. Robert, Newbury, came
from Bristol to Salem, says Coffin, and d. aft. rem. to N. 4 Mar. 1644.
His inv. is of 6 July 1644. I suppose he emb. in the Blessing at Lon-
don, 1635, aged 28, with, perhaps, w. Eliz. 22 ; and the custom-hp. list,
that there may be no mistake, repeats the names in a few lines. Rob-

other, Sarah, was brot. and d. soon aft. arr. and here had Thomas, bapt.
6 May 1638 ; Joseph, 22 Nov. 1640, bef. ment. ; Benjamin, 7 Iklay 1643,
bef. ment.; Deborah, 3 Aug. 1645 ; and Sarah, 6 Qct. 1650, d. young.
His w. wh. name is unkn. d. 13 Feb. 1683, and he d. 28 Sept. 1691.
His will, of 13 July 1688, names the four liv. ch. Deborah m. 13 June
1678, as sec. w. Samuel Thaxter. Tradit. brings him from West of
Eng. where he left br. John. This may seem not improb. if we substi-
tute E. for W. The name belong, to Co. Norf 'k. or the adj. Co. Lincoln.
Thomas, Hingham 1638, the husbandman, br. of the first Stephen, prob.
younger, had gr. of Id. 1638, came, says the Gushing MS. in 1638 from
Wymondham, Co. Norf 'k. with Jeremiah Moore, perhaps is the freem.
of 18 May 1 642, had w. Margaret, d. of Richard Langer, and ch. Caleb,
bapt. 8 Oct. 1643, d. soon ; Joshua and Caleb, tw. 2 Mar. 1645, of wh,
the latter, I think, liv. not long; Susanna; Mary, b. 10, bapt. 23 Apr.
1648; Sarah, 29 Sept. bapt. 6 Oct. 1650; Thomas, 26 Dec. 1652;-
Eliz. and Euth, b. 19 Nov. 1664. He d. 16 Aug. 1692 ; but his will, of
24 May 1681, names the w. and eight ch. His d. Susanna m. 16 May
1666, to Joseph Barstow of Scituate; Mary m. 5 Jan. 1675, Francis
Barker of Duxbury ; Sarah m. 6 May 1675, Thomas Marsh ; Eliz. m. 23
Jan. 1678, Daniel Lincoln, bef. ment. ; and Ruth, m. Jan. 1685, Samuel
Gill. It seems very curious, that at our Hingham, within the first three
yrs. of its sett, should be found four heads of fams. nam. Thomas Lincoln,
and yet at Hingham in O. E. where this fam. name was quite freq. not
one Thomas occurs in the rec. from 1600 to 16C3 incl. neither as f. nor
s. among ms. 15 in number, of wh. 8 were of males, nor among 28 bur.
nor among 62 bapt. Clearly the other parishes of Co. Norf 'k. had the
name of bapt. in greater abund. for males of this surname. Thomas,
Taunton, s. of Thomas, the miller, of Hingham, b. in Eng. had Mary, b.
12 May 1652; Sarah, 25 Sept. 1654; Thomas, 21 Apr. 1656; Samuel,
