Euth, freem. 1691. * Thomas, Dorchester 1634, freem. 6 May 1635,
rem. it is thot. *to Windsor; was rep. in Mar. and Apr. 1638 ; but no
more is kn. with certainty. In Stiles, Hist. 698, he is said to m. 2 Mar.
1637, Mary Drake, wh. may have been d. of the first John; and we
might suppose, from the same line, the same man m. 10 May 1660,
Bethia Parsons, but the darkness is palpable, upon the same page, where
he teach, that Thomas Maskell m. that day that same woman; and
great distrust springs up, when we see him, p. 735, give the same woman,
the same day, to Thomas Haskell. * Thomas, Boston, shoemaker, or
ferryman, or both, call, widower on adm. to the ch. 31 Aug. 1634;
freem. 4 Mar. 1635, had brot. from Eng. prob. s. Thomas and Samuel,
ds. Sarah and Frances ; and here by sec. w. Alice had Eliakim, b. 1
Mar. 1637, yet not bapt. until 15 Apr. 1638, no doubt on acco. of the
antinom. quarrel in the ch. for acting with the major part of wh. in
support of Wheelwright, he was requir. in Nov. 1637 to surrender his

recov. in 1646, the favor of his former fellow-worshippers. * || Thomas,
Eeading, came, prob. in the James from London 1635, aged 22, had
Hannah, b. 7 June 1640 ; Samuel, 1 Sept. 1643, d. in one wk. ; Abigail;
Sarah, d. young; Thomas and Eebecca, tw. 20 Feb. 1648; Eliz.;
Sarah, again, 14 Feb. 1655; was freem. 1653, a lieut. and aft. very
long deliberat. by me, is thot. to be that man of Lynn, always call. capt.
who there had Joanna, 14 Sept. 1657 ; John, 14 Feb. 1660; Euth, 14
Aug. 1662; and Mary, 25 May 1665; was of ar. co. 1640, and, per-

have confus. f. and s. and to have misled Farmer. See p. 92 of Lewis,
Ed. 2d. But for what John Dunton, in Life and Errors, says of this,
capt. hav. been one of Cromwell's soldiers, I am compell. to suspect, that
the author mistook his jolly host, or that the veteran designedly impos.

Andover, ought to have more told of him than is found in Farmer, that

there had Eliz. until d. of the f. of his w. aft. wh. I find in the rec. of
R. Hannah, b. 6 May 1.677 ; but perhaps he rem. again to some neighb.
town, and had Samuel, brot. to bapt. with Mehitable, 3 Feb. 1684, when
we see in rec. of b. only that of the d. 28 Feb. bef. He had also Mary,

Thomas, Windsor, may be thot. to have rem. with Warham, from Dor-
chester, but no certainty is reach, by inquir. unless the conject. be adopt,
that he and first Thomas Marshall were the same person. The first that
can positive, be learn, is by a letter from him, as Marshfield, to Samuel
Wakeman, 6 May 1641, on p. 12 of our Vol. I. of Reg. of Deeds,
strange as the place is, where an extr. is insert, by Gov. Winth. and
next yr. he withdrew from the country, as by Conn. Rec. 14 Oct. 1642,
when the Court appoint, trustees to manage his est. for use of the
creditors. Perhaps he was lost at sea, but at least no more was ever
heard of him. His wid. and fam. rem. to Springfield, the ch. being

holders in 1678, Frothingham, 183, tho. it gives the prefix of respect,
tells not the bapt. name, but indicates barely Mr. Martin's, and there is
reason to think it did not mean either John's or Thomas's, and Coffin
authorizes the conject. that he was of Newbury, had Eichard, b. 8 Jan.
1674. A former w. P:iiz. d. 6 Oct. 1689 ; and the sec. m. 28 Nov. foil,
