1645, Ruth, d. of John Stanley, a serg_. in 1649, may be that youth of
13, who came in the Increase, 1635, from London to Boston, was rep.
for N. 1657, had Ruth, b. 5 Jan. 1657 ; Sarah, 12 Feb. 1662; Mary,
15 Sept. 1664; and Ph«be, 25 Apr. 1669; the first bapt. at Norwalk,

late in life, Dorothy, d. of Rev. Henry Smith, who had been wid. of
three husbands, and liv. in 1705. Jacob, Sudbury, s. of John of the

will, of 5 July 1659, pro. Nov. foil, calls hims. of Hammersmith, in wh.
he ment. w. Ruth, and little d. Deborah, may be the one, wh. m. at
Lynn, 28 Dec. 1657, Ruth Pinion, wh. perhaps, was d. of Nicholas of
New Hjven. James, Boston, " a Scottish man " as rec. of his m. 6
Feb. 1657, with Mary Both, or Booth, calls him, may have been (the. it
seems to me unlikely, as he was one of the found, of the Scot's Charit.
Soc.) one of the few outcasts of the civil war, sold here, that had health
or heart eno. to form a fam. Jaspek, Plymouth, serv. boy of Gov.
Carver, wh. d. very soon aft. arr. of the Mayflower, by careless read, oft.f
suppos. to be s. of the Gov.'who however had no ch. tho. many thou-

was there a chief man, rep. not as Hist, of W. 705, tells, in 1643l!'lbut
1665, 7, and oft. aft. d. 18 Sept. 1677. He had Abigail, b. 1639;
Mindwell, 10 July 1643 ; and John, 5 Dec. 1645 ; but he had also, prob.
elder ds. Hannah, wh. m. 30 Nov. 1648, John Drake; and Eliz. wh. m.
24 Nov. 1654, Nathaniel Loomis. Abigail m. 11 Oct. 1655, Thomas
Bissell; and. Mindwell m. 25 Sept. 1662, Nathaniel Bissell. John,
Roxbury, freem. 3 July 1632, but perhaps he first liv. in feome other
town, for his name is not found early at R. nor does Mr. Ellis in his
' Hist, give it; but the ch. rec. has "old John Moore of 99 yrs. d. 27
Oct. 1679." John, Cambridge, perhaps the freem. of 8 Dec. 1636.
John, Salem, had there bapt. Jefusha, 25 Dec. 1636 ; Abigail, 10 June
1638; Benjamin, 18 July 1641 ; and Ephraim, 10 Dec. 1643. Per-
haps his w. was Hannah, and he may have been freem. but not, as Felt
puts him, in 1633. John, Newport, receiv. as an inhab. 16 Nov. 1638,
may have been of Warwick 1655, had d. Mary, wh. m. Job Almy.

John, Newtown, L. I. 1656, was their first min. says Rilier's Hist.
John, Roxbury, of wh. I find nothing but his insert, in list of freem. ,
1666. John, Boston, shipwright, d. in Virginia, and admin, was giv. 15
Jan. 1683, to his wid. Mary. John, Windsor, only s. of John of the
same, m. 21 Sept. 1664, Hannah, d. of Edward Goffe of Cambridge,

1669; Nathaniel, 20 Sept. 1672; Edward, 2 Mar. 1675; and Josiah

Francis, Nov. 1684; Catharine, again. Mar. 1686, and Francis, again, 8
Apr. 1687. He was, perhaps, the freem. of 1671, and d. 1693. He
was a brewer, had good est. of wh. admin, was giv. to his w. Lydia, 13
July. John, Lynn, m. 21 July 1673, Susanna, perhaps d. of Thomas
Marshall, had Thomas, b. 20 Apr. 1674 ; John, 10 Feb. 1679 ; Richard,
22 Aug. 1680 ; and Susanna, 4 Mar. 1685. * John, Lancaster, call,
jun. rep. 1689, perhaps s. of him who was rep. aft. John, Lynn, freem.
1691. One other John, wh. came in the Susan and Ellen 1635, from
London, aged 41, I am unable to dispose of. Jonathan, Boston,
youngest s. of Mrs. Ann, wid. of William Hibbins, the Assist.- was, I
infer, only tempo, resid. here, for the will of his mo. 16 June 1656,
shortly bef. her execut. for the preposterous crime of witchcraft, wh. ia
to be seen in Geneal. Reg. VL 287, 8, speaks of him and his brs. John,
and Joseph, as if all were in Eng. and in the codic. of 19th of the same,
acknowledg. " the more than ordinary affection and pains ' of this one,'
in the time of my distress," as he had arriv. to attend the result of the
execrable fanaticism. She was prob. the richest person ever hanged ia
this part ; and the prejudice against witches long slumbered. Joseph,
Boston, m. 21 May 1656, Ruth Starr, had Joseph, b. 7 Mar.. 1658.
Joseph, Sudbury, m. Lydia, d. of John Maynard. Miles, Milford
1646, rem. as early at least as 1657, to New London, freem. 1663, call..

ch. is giv. he was still assort, with Elder Brewster ; but bjr Gov. Brad-
ford's Hist. 451, we are taught that he m. and in 1651 had four or five
ch. liv. as if he had lost one or more. It is vain to regret, that the Gov.
did not mention the names of the ch. or the mo. Perhaps he rem. to
one of the newer settlem. for Winsor's Duxbury tells that he. sold his
land 1637, and I am convinc. aft. long search, that he is the Richard by
Deane, in Hist, of Scituate, call. Mann, as the other four passeng. with
this bapt. name of Richard, were all then adult. See Mann. Richard,
Cape Porpoise, now Kennebunk, had gr. of 400 acres in 1647, and less
than 20 yrs. aft. was of Scarborough, had w. Bridget, became pauper
1679, and d. 1681. See Southgate, 77. Richard, Salem 1642,to wh.
says Felt, was made gr. of land 1638, freem. 28 Feb. 1643, tho. this
man may have come in the Blessing, from London 1635, aged 2Q. He,
or perhaps a s. of the same name, in a town ofiSce there, was liv. 1682 ;
and in 1668 his name, with that of Richard jun. is sign, to the petitn^
against imposts. Richard, Lynn, by w. Alice, wh. d. 29 May 1661,

Robert, Boston 1651, tailor, rem. next yr. Robert, Boston, by w.
Ann had Susanna, b. 6 Aug. 1686. Samuel, Salem, freem. 6 Mar.
1632, perhaps, therefore, came in Nov. preced. in the Lion, had Samuel,
bapt. 25 Dec. 1636; and Remember, 9 Dec. 1638. Samuel, Boston,
prob. s. of Jeremy, m. 1 May 1660, Abigail, d. of capt. Thomas
Hawkins, had Mary, b. 2 May 1661 ; he d. in short time, and his wid.
m. Thomas Kellond, and 3d h. Hon. John Foster. Samuel, Boston, by

Samuel, Lynn, had Mary, b. early in June 1676, d. soon; Rebecca, 9
Nov. 1677, d. soon; Abigail, 26 Sept. 1678; and Ephraim, 17 June

LiAM, Salem 1639, may have been of Ipswich 1665, and d. 1671.

N. H. William, York 1652, when he subm. to the Mass. governm. to
1G80, when he took the o. of alleg. to his Majesty. "William, "Westerly

Amesbury 1670, a milit. officer, wh. m. as I presume, 7 Oct. 1673, Mary
Veazie, perhaps d. of George of Dover. Seven of this name had, in
1829, been gr. at Harv. six at Yale, six at Dart, and twelve at other
N. E. coll.

MooRES, Edmund, Newbury, Coffin says, came 1640, aged 26, by w.
Ann, wh. d. 7 June 1676, had Martha, b. 12 Dec. 1643; Jonathan, 23
Apr. 1646 ; Mary, 30 Nov. 1648 ; Edmund, wh; d. 8 Nov. 1656 ; Rich-

date. Samuel, Newbury, m. 3 May 1653, Hannah Plummer, wh. d. 8
Dec. 1654, and he m. 12 Dec. 1656, Mary Ilsley, d. of WilUam of
the same.

More, See Moore. Henry, Dorchester 1675, had supphed a substit.
in the comp. of capt. Johnson, Dec. of that yr. as may be read in the
list, print, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 242, tho. his name is copied Mare.
Many of the fam. have the name, as it were, interchangeable ; the same
person on one page of the rec. spelling each way.

Morehouse, or Moorehouse, John, Fairfield, ensign in 1676.
Jonathan, Fairfield, m. Mary, d. of Edward Wilson of the same, bef.
1684. Samuel, Fairfield, perhaps s. of Thomas, freem. 1664, liv. 1670.
Thomas, Wethersfield 1640, perhaps was at Stamford next yr. but in
1653 at Fairfield.

Moefield, or Moorfield, John, Hingham, came in the Diligent,
1 638, from old Hingham.

MoRELL, William, came in Sept. 1623, with Eobert Gorges, sat
down at Weymouth, but soon went to Plymouth, aft. Gorges left him,
and home within a yr. His verses, Latin and translat. into Eng. show
he was a fair scholar; and his prudence was pro. by not. producing the
ecclesiast. commission he had to rule on this side of the water.

MoRET, Benjamin, Wickford 1674, was some relat. prob. of Isaac
Heath of Eoxbury, who names Mary and Benjamin in his will of Jan.
1661. George, Duxbury 1640, d. that yr. may be the passeng. 1635,
from London, aged 23, by the Truelove. Francis, Salem 1686.

Eoger, b. 8 May 1649; Thomas, 19 July 1652; and Hannah, 28 Sept.

Morgan, Bennett, Plymouth, came in the Fortune, 1621, but he
