the friends of Matthews. But perhaps the true name was Marble,

Miriam, John, Boston, was a selectman 1691. See Meriam.

MiRicK, or Mtrick, Benjamin, CharlestoWn, s. of John, by w.
Sarah had Benjamin, and Sarah, bapt. 30 Jan. 1687. James, Newbury
1656, had Hannah, b. 6 Feb. 1657; Abigail, 5 Sept. 1658 ; Joseph, 27
Apr. 1661 ; Isaac, 6 Jan. 1665; Timothy, 28 Sept. 1666; and Susanna,
20 Aug. 1^70. Coffin says he was b. 1612 ; but it would have better
pleased us to learn the time of his d. James, Newbury, % of the preced.
perhaps, yet not so indicat. by Coffin, who says, by w. Hannah he had
Benjamin, b. 16 Apr. 1683; James, 16 July 1684; but in the former
line he had him 16 Apr. 1683; and John, 10 Sept. 1686. John,
Charlestown, by ^/f. Judith, unless this be, as I suspect, error for Hope-
still, had Hopestill, b. 20 Feb. 1643; Benjamin, 22 June 1644; and,
perhaps, others. By sec. w. Hopestill (unless it be the first, as I suspect,
for Hopestill M. is adm. of the ch.in Charlestown, 10 Sept. 1644), he had
Sarah, 1 May 1657; Mercy, 30 Dec. 1658; and Abigail, bapt. 17 Feb.
1661. His d. Ann m. John Walker, bef. 3 Oct. 1675, when she join, the

Lydia, again, 7 July 1704 ; in the order giv. by Jackson ; biit Bond
substitutes for Deborah, Sarah, 6 Mar. 1695, add. that she m. Jonathan
Fuller, with wh. Jackson, 280, concurs. He was"freem. 1685, k. at
Groton, by the Ind. 21 July 1706, unless Butler in his Hist, be mistak.
as Jackson, 366, renders prob. That very careful collector, p. 96, refers
to Penhallow for his extract; but in that writer I do not discov. the
passage. Yet Homer, in his Hist, of N. had print, the same passage, 1
Mass. Hist. Coll. V. 273. It is curious, that both the other sufferers at
G. on that day, were of N. I' suppose they were part of a garrison
at G. But this John d. 11 July 1706, and had made his will 29 Apr.
preced. "under a languish, sickness." Some mistake of the town was
made. Timotht, Newbury, youngest s. of the first James, m. 1696,
Mary Lancaster, had Ezra, b. 31 Mar. 1697; Abigail, 26 Nov. 1698;
and, perhaps, more.

Mitchell, Andrew, Charlestown, had Mary, bapt. 2 Dec. 1688;
Abigail, 17 Feb. 1689 ; Sarah ; Eliz. 7 Jan. 1694; and Andrew, 28
Jan. 1695. His w. was Abigail. David, Stratford, • br. of Jonathan,
came prob. with hisf. 1635, in the James from Bristol, arr. at Boston 16
Aug. and accomp. his f. to Say brook, thence, to Wethersfield for some
yrs. and Stamford, taught the sch. at "Watertown, perhaps Pec. 1 649, at
least was invit. for that object, and soon aft. rem. to Stratford, where
certain, he was in 1665, when he had two s. but who was the mo. or
when the f. d. are all unkn. Cothren, 634, names four s. Matthew,
John, Nathan, and Abraham, and tho. the d. of the f. name of the mo.
or b. of either of the four is sought in vain, he permits us to infer that
the two ment. in 1665 may have been Abraham and Matthew, but that
John was older than Abraham. In Npv. 1675 he was entrust, by the
Council of war with import, affairs. Edward, Hingham, came in the
Diligent, 1638, but we kn. no more of him, exc. that he was from Old
Hingham. Edward, Bridgewater,* s. of Ej^erience, m. Mary, d. of
Thomas Hayward, and in 40 yrs. by her had no eh. m. next, 1708,

an occasion of blunder, even for so famous a man, whom lie calls match-
less, he had on p. 166 of the same Book, told us he was b. '1624, at
Halifax, in th*e W. riding ,of Yorksh. In 1662, he, with Gookin, were
made first licensers of the press in Mags. He had good est. the inv.
being £786, 17, 9. Every writer who has ment. the famous men of the
early days of our country, has told of Mitchell, and the oversight of call,
his f. Jonathan, instead of Matthew, by Sprague, in Annals of the
American Pulpit, would seem too trivial to be noticed here, dicLnot the
minute statem. of his m. require correction : " Margaret S. daur. of his
predecessor, by 'his first m." seems to bear on its face, the stamp of exact
truth. But as accura. relat. is always desira. it may be told, the only d.
of Shepard by his first w. d. inf. and this Margaret who m. MitcheU was

soon aft. to Saybrook for short time, where, in the Pequot war, he was .
' protect, by Lyon Gardiner, but he says the Ind. took one of the "old
man's s. and roasted him alive." He was in 1639 at Wethersfield ^
short time, and next yr. made their town elk. but soon went to Stamford,
and in 164:3, with Rev. Richard Denton, to Hempstead-, L. I. perhaps
back again, soon to Stamford, there d. in 1645. He was rep. in 1637,
but not, as Mather makes him, one of the Assist, of the Col. that yr.
