perhaps br. of John the first, came in 1626, as Felt thinks, prob. from
Dorchester, in Eng. with s. Richard, to ea. of wh. he assigns that yr.
but John, who was elder, may have been left in Eng. Farmer thinks
he had also William, liv. at Marblebead 1 648 ; and says the elder Rich-
ard d. 1683, tho. it may seem as prob. that it was the s. of that name,
who, he says, was b. 1623, and liv. 1672 at Marblebead. It seems to
me, that the elder d. prob. bef. this last date, and that sec. Richard
was the freem. of 1680. Samuel, Barnstable, perhaps s. of Hugh, m.

9 Dec. 1657, was pro. 27 June 1660. Mather includes him in his first

sure, in the last days of Eliz. or first of James, but we have no report
