Eelation. See Dr. Young, Chron. of Pilgr. 113. Dr. Felt, Ann. of
Salem, I. 228, differs from Dr. Young, and speaks -of Mourt as visiting
Naumkeag in 1621; but his addr. "to the reader" seems to imply of

his wid. d. 14 Sept. 1689; and his d. Mary m. 1685, as his sec. w.
Samuel Farnsworth. The name is perpet. in the neighb. John, New
Hampsh. 1658. Farmer says the name is still in the E. part of the
State.

MosiER, or MosHiER, Arthub, Boston, by w. Eebecca had Lydia,
b. 25 Feb. 1678; Thomas, 22 Sept. 1679 ; and Samuel, 21 Jan. 1683.
Perhaps it is bee. Mosher. Hugh, Falmouth 1640, came, perhaps, in
the Jane, from London, in eight wks. pass. arr. at Boston 12 June 1632,
was inhab. of Newport 1660, engag. in the purch. of Misquamicut, d.
bef. 1666, leav. Jafties and John, says Willis, I. 37. He had not then
acquir. the knowl. of resid. of Hugh in E. I. where he m. Rebecca, d. of
John Harndel of Newport, as sea. w. prob. unless ano. Hugh be intend,
in the will of her f. 9 Feb. 1685. See also, 4 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 93, in
notes. Of James, we kn. only that he was adraor. 1666, appoint, at the
July Ct. on est. of his f. and of John, that in 1683, he was of Brook-
haven, L. I. and gave conveyance of Id. in Casco Bay.

MosMAN, James, Wrentham, by w. Ann had Eliz. b. 24 May 1675, d.
6 Mar. foil. He prob. rem. to Eoxbury, there had Timothy, b. 17 Nov.
1679; and Eliz. 18 Dec. 1696 ; but it is not sure that it was by the
same w. or whether other ch. had not been b. perhaps in ano. town.

Moss, * John, New Haven 1639, sign, the orig. comp. 4 June 1643,
had John, bapt. prob. 5 Jan. 1640, d. young; Samuel, 4 Apr. 1641;
Abigail, 10 Apr. 1642; Joseph, prob. 5 Nov. 1643 ; Ephraim, 16 Nov.
1645; Mary, 11 Apr. 1647; Mercy, male, 1 Apr. 1649; John, again,
b. 12, bapt. 20 Oct. 1650; Eliz. 3, bapt. 7 Oct. 1652; Esther, 2 Jan.
1654; and Isaac, 21, bapt. 30 Nov. 1655 ; as the print, in Geneal. Eeg.
IX. 361, gives the bapt. wh. may be a mistake for Dec. The rec. of b.
may be trust, that of bapt. is certain, wrong. He was rep. 1 667-70,
and then rem. to Wallingford 1670, of wh. he was rep. 1671-3, yet
contin. propr. at New Haven, d. 1707, aged 103, perhaps with slight
exagg. yet thot. to be the oldest that ever d. in Conn. See Dana,
Cent. disc. 1770. Mary m. 3 Nov. 1664, John Peck; and Eliz. m.
1670, Nathaniel Hitchcock. John, Boston. See Morse. John, TVo-

had Joseph, b. 11 Jan. 1694; Abiel, 19 Aug. 1695; Mary, 4 Mar.

Joseph, Portsmouth 1665. Joseph, New Haven, s. of John of the
same, m. 11 Apr. 1667, Mary, d. of Roger- Ailing, had, beside prob.
others, Samuel, b. 27 Jan. 1675, d. next yr. ; Joseph, 7 Apr. 1679,

18 Mar. 1681. Joseph, Boston, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 22 Mar.
1687; and Joseph, again, 18 Jan. 1689. Meect, New Haven, s. of
John, by w. Eliz. had John; and William, b. 28 June 1682 ; but per-
haps John was not the elder. He d. not long aft. for his inv. was of 3
Mar. 1685, and only the wid. and two s. to have int. in it. In no other
case have I seen this female name enjoy, by a man. The surname is
sometimes writ, by mistake for Morse.

MoTT, Adam, Hingham, a tailor, from Cambridge, Eng. came in the
Defence 1635, aged 39, with w. Sarah, 81, and ch. John, 14 ; Adam, 12 ;
Jonathan, 9 ; Eliz. 6 ; and Mary, 4 ; was first of Eoxbury, freem. 25
May 1636; perhaps dissatisf. as a friend of Hutchinson, went 1638 to
Eh. Island with fam. there had, perhaps, more ch. and was with
Adam jr. John, and Jonathan, perhaps his s. liv. at Portsmouth, as
freem. 1655. Adam, Portsmouth, E. I. s. of the preced. m. Oct. 1647,

1663; Mercy, 8 Jan. 1666; Sarah, 3 Feb. 1670; Eliz. 12 Sept. 1672;

to bear arms 1643, rem. to Braintree, m. 1656, Hannah Shooter, had

Moulder, Nicholas, Boston 1671, merch. by w. Christian had
Nicholas, b. 21 June 1672. He was abus. as a Quaker, by Gov. Bel-
lingham, and rem. to whence he came. But ano. kind of abuse was
practis. in the change of his Christian name at Boston, for the Friend's
rec. prove that it was Edwakd, and that at Newport, by w. Christian,
he had Edward, b. 24 Mar. 1669 ; and at Boston, Nicholas, 29 May
1671, wh. prob. d. soon ; and Nicholas, again, agreea. to Boston rec. 21
June 1672.
