right, for the wid. m. 5 July 1678, John Fay, wherefore I dogbt, unless

says the Geneal. and serv. as chaplain in king William's war with the
French, had gr.s. of the same name,' wh. was a preach. Nathaniel,

had only Obadiah, wh. d. young, was first elk. of the town, and deac. d.
4 Mar. 1704, and his wid. d. 1714. An Obadiah, among freem. 1674,
is call, of Portsmouth in the, rec. but I fear, he can have no more told of
him, but that in Feb. 1690, with majority of N. H. people, he desir.
jurisdict. of Mass. Robert, Boston, perhaps br.; of the first Anthony,
brot. from Eng. w. Eliz. and prob. s. Abraham, had James, b. atB. 1644,
rem. to Newbury, perhaps bef. his w. d. ' but more likely aft. ; m. 30
Oct. 1654, Ann Lewis, had Eliz. b. 25 Sept. 1655, d. in 6 mos. ; Robert,
1 Feb. 1657; Mary, 25 Feb. 1658, d. in 8 mos.; a d. 16 Dec. 1660,
wh. liv. not to obt. a name; Lydia, 13 July 1662 ; and Sarah, 28 Apr.
1665, but Coffin makes it a yr. later; liv. some time at Rowley, there,
perhaps, had Peter, and at last rem. to N. J. Samuel, Dedham, per-
haps br. of Daniel, came in the Increase, from London, 1635, aged 50,
with w. Eliz. 48, and s. Joseph, bef. ment. but how the other childr. Came
or when, is imcert. ; freem. 8 Oct. 1640; d. says the Geneal. 20 June
1654; but either that date or one of his wjjl is wrong, as pub. in
Geneal. Reg. V. 299, where the test, is 2 Dec. 1654. I presume the d.
of his s. Joseph was intend, for June. Farmer says he d. 3 days aft.
and agrees with town rec. therein. It gives w. Eliz. all his est. but aft.
her life to be div. among ch. John, Daniel, and Mary, w. of Samuel
BuUen, beside Ann, wid. of Joseph, for his childr. equal, and no more ;

Morton, Charles, Charlestown, eldes,t s. of Rev. Nicholas, wh. d. at
Southwark, near London, there hav. a parish, descend, of an anc. fam. at
Morton, in Co. Notts, where was. the seat of Thomas Morton, says
Farmer, seer, of Edward III. was b. 1626, in Cornwall, bred at Wadham
Coll. Oxford, and sett, at Blisland, in his native Co. as a min. thence
eject, in 1662, he liv. sev. yrs. at Newington Green, near London, and
was wholly engag. in teach, a private semin. until 1686, when he emb.
for Boston, and 5 Nov. of this yr. was ord. at C. His neph. Charles,
an M. D., came with him, but went home in July of next yr. ; ano.
neph. Nicholas, H. C. 1686, wh. d. at Charlestown, 3 Nov. 1689, had
come a yr. earlier than his uncle. An aged wid. Ann, says the rec. d.
20 Dec. 1690 ; but ^he may not have been relat. Some reports still
circulate a. the design of mak. him head of our college, but there can
be no founda. for the idea, that such an inducem. caus. his com. for
Increase Mather was chos. near, a yr. bef. his leav. Eng. and some
jealousy was rais. against him for teach, matters of high rank in the
college curriculum. Vice President he was indeed chos. being the first
in such rank, and, I suppose, the last who acted under a presid. officer,
for when the Inst, was reliev. from the rule of Mather, and nobody was
to be found fit to be his successor, with condition of i'esid. on inadequ.
salary, Willard was made real head of the Coll. with the inferior title
that Morton had enjoy, yet not held to resid. M. was too old to succeed
Mather, when this latter was sent to Eng. and d. some yrs. bef the office
was vacat. by him. It is rather strange, that his d. wh. was on 11
Apr. 1698, by Penhallow, who was his pupil in Eng. and came over
with" him, is mark. 1696, see 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 162, .and by Dr.

Davis, in the preface to the Memorial, says, he was b. on the passage.
Cotton's Plymouth ch. hist, in 1 Hist. Coll. IV. 126, marks his d. 7 Sept.
1693, in 70th yr. of his age, wh. implies that he was b. aft. the arr. of the
sh. in July. Perhaps the differ, may be explain, by error in Cotton's
use of the Latin word, as very frequent, occurs in careless mod. writers.
