Deborah, Lydia, Rebecca, Rachel, Eliz. and Joanna ; but to the last six,
perhaps ch. of the surv. w. only £50 ea.. are giv. The boast on his
gr.stone is, that he was f. of 21 ch. but far better is it thot. to provide

but Felt does not incl. his name with ch. memb. wh. may be conjectural,

Mary, b. 14 Mar. bapt. 29 Apr. 1655 ; and John, again, bapt. 24 June

should prefer to make his day of bapt. 24 Jan. 1647 ; beside Sarah, wh.
d. 22 July 1658, perhaps quite young ; and Joseph, b. as the fam. tradit.
goes, 1663, and d. 12 May 1672. As Mary is among ch. memb. 1647,
I presume she was his w. only ch. of Francis Lawes, and she m. next,
Andrew Mansfield. John, Salem, s. of the preced. m. Ann Nichols,,
had John, b. 15 Apr. 1673; Thomas, 14 Feb. 1675; Joseph, 4 Dec.

83 yrs. Samuel, a soldier on Conn. riy. under capt. Turner in 1676,
was from Braintree, s. of Henry, m. 18 Apr. 1678, Abigail, d. of James
Penniman, and, perhaps lir. in New'Hampsh. in 1690, pray, for jurisdict.
of Mass. "Walter, Portsmouth, came early in 1630, by the Warwick,
as Gov. of the plauta. of Gorges and Mason, went home in Aug. 1633,
sail, from Boston 13th of that mo. aft. being above ten days there.
Both his coming and going, therefore, from this shore, is to a sober man
satisfact. proof of the falsity of the gr. Ind. deed to "Wheelwright of 17
iJlay 1629, seven yrs. bef the grantee came, and one yr. bef. this witness
arr. Much stronger, even, is the evid. of forgery of a letter, pretend, to
be of Neal and Wiggin, to the patentee John Mason, 13 Aug. 1633, wh.
was, by the managers of the fraud, intend, for a buttress of the splendid
grant. - That letter purports- to be writ, at Northam, wh. was the
complimenta. name some yrs. later, for Dover, on the Piscataqua, when
we kn. from p. 107 of Vol. I. of the Hist, by Gov. Winth. that on that
same day Neal was at Boston, and had been above a week, with a comp.
of eight friends, to embark in the Elizabeth Bonadventure, that sail, for
Eng. on 15 of that month; and from p. 115 of the same Vol. that
"Wiggin was in London on the date of that forgery of the preposter.
letter, embarking at Gravesend for Salem, the very day that Neal left
Boston for Eng. In the assiduity of Farmer no further acco. is reacti
but he thjnks "Walter of N. H. 1660, who by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 14
June 1661, and was in 1673, lieut. in the comp. of wh. James Pendletbn
was capt. might have been his s. He join, most of his neighb. in desir.

to be whip, twelve stripes. Yet these ^perverse worshippers have no
small claims on our kind regard, at least for their long contin. lives, both
acting in 1696, and he in 1705, beside good success in rear. ch. for we
see by deed of 1 Jan. 1730, that Anthony, Isaac, Thomas, Eebecca,
Hannah, Eliz. Mary, Abigail, and Rachel should enjoy the est. of their
