and Eliz. 14, bapt. 22 Oct. 1643. Ellis, in his Hist. 123, follow, the
erron. suppos. of Farmer, a. his rem. to Springfield, and adds that he
was excomm. for drunken. Now that censure was on 1 May 1659,
many yrs. later than his namesake was at S. but then he ought to have
turned over the ch. vol. very little, and seen that he was .restor. to his
honora. relation 29 Dec. 1660. He was freem. 18 May 1642, when
the Col. rec. spells it Mathis. John, Rehoboth, perhaps rem. to Spring-
field, m. 1644, Pentecost Bond, had two ch. wh. d. one Sarah, bur. 7

our ch. to that of Y. ; was adm. freem. of Plymouth Col. 1641, had
Manasseh, bapt. 24 Jan. 1641, by Lothrop, at Barnstable, but came to
Hull a. 1644; some yrs. later taught at Maiden, where his troubles are
copious, detail, by Frothingham, in Hist, of Charlestown ; he had there
been ord. but, against the good will of the hearers, he was forced to de-
part, was then employ, at Lynn and other places, finally went home, and
Calamy says he d. at his nat. place, a. 1683. Moedecai, H. C. 1655,
was, I presume, s. of the preced. and, as no more is heard of him, prob.
he went 'to Eng. Roger, Dorchester, had gr. of Id. Feb. 1635, but
prob. soon rem. Samuel, Jamaica, L.I. 1656. Thompson. Walter,
Isle of Shoals, s. of Francis, was constable there 1658, rem. to Dover,
had w. Mary, and d. 1678, leav. s. Samuel, ds. Susanna Young and
Mary Senter. His will of 15 Apr. was pro. 25 June, as Mr. Quint finds.

Matthewson, James, is by Farmer, put into the list of earliest sett.
of R, I. but I have found nothing to add, exc. that at Providence he
took the engagem. ^f alleg. to Charles II. in May 1 666, and prob. had
Ruth, wh. m. 1 Apr. 1686, Benjamin Whipple. Joseph, wh. m. 19
Feb. 1715, Sarah, d. of the sec. Valentine Whitman, is call. s. of Daniel.
Yet wh. Daniel was, or where he liv. I find not.

New Haven, m. 1669, Grace Todd, but it is not certain that. he was

Philip, a soldier from the E. part of the Col. in the spring of 1676,

for sec. w. m. Mary Bonner, a wid. with four ch. went to Dover, there
was first min. on sett, found. 1642 to his d. in 1655. His will was of 17
Jan. in that yr. He left no ch. by either of his ws.

Maudsley, II Henry, Braintree, came in the Hopewell, capt. Babb,
in the autumn of 1635, aged 24, had Mary, b. 29 Sept. 1638 ; Samuel,
14 June 1641; and, perhaps, others; ar. co. 1643; freem. 1646; we
kn. not the name of his w. nor any more item. Dr. Harris claims him
for Dorchester 1 630, but without suffic. warrant, that I can discov. yet
he had gr. of a houselot 1637. John, Dorchester, freem. 14 Mar.
1639, by w. Eliz. had Joseph, b. 1638, as. print, in Geneal. Reg. V. 244,

few yrs. bef. liis d. Joseph rem. to Glastonbury. Samuel, Dorchester,
s. of .Henry, a cooper, rem. early to Boston, and in the way of trade
visit. Jamaica and other parts of the W. I. where the adventurous spirit
was excited and schooled, perhaps by Sir Henry Morgan and associate
buccaneers, the result of wh. was, his bring, home to Boston two prizes
from some unment. enemy. An explanat. of this may be, that the
prizes (wh. were command, by Dutchmen) had been engag. in irreg. or
piratical business. He m. Ann, eldest d. of the first Isaac Addington,
and sis. of the Hon. Isaac, had Samuel, b. 18 Apr. 1671 ; Eebecca,
1673; and Mary. He was a capt. in Philip's war, showed gallant
spirit, had great success in destroy, the Ind. by some was thot. to take
too great delight in that exercise, and d. Jan. 1680. The s. d. young,
and the wid. in 1684 conteraplat. m. with Nehemiah Pierce, made deed
of trust in favor of the ds. of wh. Rebecca m. 22 Jan. 1695, James

1676; Nathaniel, 28 Oct. 1678; and Joseph, 17 Apr. 1681 ; and d. 22
Oct. 1706. His will of 4 Oct. preced. names Increase, s. of his eldest dec.
s. Increase. The wid. d. Apr. 1723. The name was spell, with many
variat. as Mawdesly, Modesly, Madesly, but long has been fixed at Moseley,
yet liable to be much mistak. as in Geneal. Reg. VI. 268, print. Moreley.

Maule, or Mauld,. Thomas, Salem 1669, a shopkeep. from Eng.
came, he says in his book, via Barbadoes, was whip, for ill words, being
a Quaker, in May of that yr. m. 1670, Naomi Lindsay ; perhaps as sec.
w. had Mary, d. of George Keyser of the same, and in 1695 punish,
again, for " Truth held forth, &c." Still, he show, great fondness for
Salem, and in his will, a. 1723, left a bequest to its use, of wh. part was
to be applied to support the writing-school. He had s. John, and third

Mary ; Euth ; Paul, 10 June 1657 ; and Rebecca, 1 Jan. 1660 ; was of

1684, provides for w. s. Elias, Peter, Paul, gr.s. Jotham, s. of s. John,
wh. therefore, I presume, was d. ; James, s. of s. Peter, wh. was prob.
d.; and ds. Abigail, wh. had m. 4 June 1655, Matthew Clark; Sarah
Walton ; Mary Way ; Ruth Smith ; and Rebecca Thomas ; beside f.-in-

1675 ; Abigail, 24 Sept. 1676 ; Samuel, 14 Aug. 1687 ; and was freem.
1690. John, Dorchester, came in the Mary and John, 1630, from Ply-
mouth, with coUea. Warham, desir. to be adm. freem. 19 Oct. and is
first on the list of those wh. took the o. 18 May 1631, d. 3 Feb. 1636,
while prepar. to accomp. his friends, wh. rem. to Windsor, perhaps, tho.
Blake's Ann. say he would have contin. with Mather. He was in
60th yr. and much do I xegret the ill success of inq. for his place of
educ. or any acco. of his early days. All that we get from- the veracious
annals of Clap, wh. was by his f. commit, to the care of M. when the
youth had leave to come to N. E. is, that he liv. 40 miles off. On what
author, he is said to have d. at Boston, I kn. not. John, Boston, possib.
s. of the preced. as Farmer thot. but to me it seems very iraprob. by w.
Jane had John, b. 18, bapt. with his sis. Jane or his mo. 30 Apr. 1653;
and Dorothy, 23, bapt. 28 Jan. 1655. Perhaps his w. d. soon aft. as
well as s. John, and by sec. w. Rebecca he had John, again, 28 July
1662. John, Boston, s. of Elias the first, m. 9 Apr. 1656, Catharine
Skipper, had Jotham, b. 30 Mar. 1660 ; Eliz. 17 Oct. 1662 ; Sarah, 20
June 1665; Ann, 21 Sept. 1671; Skipper, 4 May 1674; and Catha-
rine, 18 Sept. 1676: When he d. is not told ; but his wid. I presume, m.

Elias, fr.eem. 3 Sept. 1634, tho. Felt ins. his name with w. in the list of

yr. old. Petek, Boston, elder br. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of Rob-

ton, found here on Noddle's isl. by the Mass. comp. in 1630, hav. built a
little fort with four small pieces of artil. so that we may be sure he was
here in ^629, perhaps came in 1628, too late for liability to expense
' of the expedit. of Endicoft against Morton. He desir. adm. 19 Oct.
1630, into the comp. but did not take the freeman's o. until 2 Oct. 1632.
Against all probabil. he is call. s. of Rev. John by a writer of more
animation than exactness, in Hist, of E. Boston ; and even the careful
Hist, of Dorchester, 404, confident, says the same. For his habit of
hospitality, he was requir. in the spring of 1 635, to change his resid. and
move to the peninsula, but that tyranny was not enforced, and in the
autumn of the same yr. he went to Virg. to buy corn, was absent almost
a yr. He was one of the king's Commissrs. 1665, and in a depon. 9
