Keskeys, Henrt, Boston, by w. Ruth had Henry, b. 3 May 1656.

Ketcham, Edward, Ipswich 1635, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, may reasona.
be thot. progenit. of all of the name, in our country, and therefore I
regret the more that we are ign. of the circumstances of his migrat. and
subseq. resid. By conject. itr seems to me, that Edward of Strat-
ford, wh. d. bef. 1678, was his s. whose d. Rebecca m. 14 Feb. 1678,
Thomas Taylor of Norwalk. An Edward K. m. Mary, d. of Richard
Harcutt, but prob. he was of L. L yet may have been the Stratford man,

Setauket, freem. of Conn. 1664, and with Edward, wh. may, also, have
been br. at Huntington, 1672.

of Salem, had Eliz. b. 15 Feb. 1658; Mary, 5 Mar. 1660; Samuel, 2
Apr. 1662; and James, 20 Mar. 1665.' Prob. from him is deriv. the
name Kettle Cove at the adjoin, town of Manchester. John, Charles-

of James Kidder, both unit, with the ch. 22 Mar. 1685, and on 29 of
same had bapt. Nathaniel, James, Samuel, Hannah, and Sarah ; Re-
becca, 30 Jan. 1687; Rachel, b. 10, bapt. 14 Apr. 1689; Union, 15
Mar. 1691 ; and Richard, 10 Dec. 1693. He had three others, wh. d.
bef. bapt. was one of the constables, 1690, and d. 1723. Peter, came
in the Abigail, 1635, aged 10, from London ; but who can tell, whether
he grew to manhood, where he liv. wh. he m. or when he.d. ? Richard,
Charlestown 1633, butcher, freem. 4 Mar. 1635, by w. Esther, d. of
Samuel Ward, had Hannah, bapt. 29 Oct. 1637, m. 21 Jan. 1657, John

Samuel, 19 Nov. 1642; Nathaniel, 11 Oct. 1644; Jonathan, 1646.
Perhaps we may doubt the ch. rec. of Budington, 247, of the date,
25 July 1633, giv. the adm. of "Richard Kettle and Esther his
w." as a modern interpolat. in its latter clause, bee. the Boston ch. rec.
of 26 Jan. 1634 has this entry, " Esther Ward, our br. Atherton Hough's
maid serv." for evid. of her adm. and the dism. on 17 July 1642 reads,
" Our sis. Esther Ward, now w. to Richard Kettle of Charlestown hath
letter of recommenda. gr. unto her to the ch. at C." Possib. he had two
ws. nam. Esther, but it is less prob. than that the Charlestown ch. rec.
was enrich, with a postlimin. addit. It must always be rememb. that we
have not orig. ch. rec. of early yrs. in either Boston or Charlestown ch.
but only copies, made prob. betw. 1650 and 1670, of both. He was usu-
