17 Jan. 1664; Thomas, 7 May 1665; Amie, 5 Aug. 1666; and Abi-
gail, 19 Sept. 1669 ; but possib. others. From Cothren it would be
thot. that he presumed the Windsor and Charlestown man the same, to
wh. there appears insurmounta. objection.

Thomas, b. and prob. d. 1660 ; and Eliz. again, 9 Dec. 1665, bapt. 14

Eichard, or Tliomas, the entry on the rec. of the ch. oft. nam. not f. but
the rite being admin, only for sis. 0. at least, in the case of not a few
other names, such was the custom. He was rep. 1672-4, d. 1676. His

Joseph, and Eliz. but dates of either m. or b. are unheard of, and he'd.
1709. Nicholas, Pemaquid, took the o. of fidsl. to Mass. 22 July

1674. Recompense, New Haven, was by the- late lamented Professor
Kingsley, thot. to be s. of Thomas, H. C. 1661, tho. it is less prob. from
Geneal Eeg. XI. 345, than that he was s. of William, and aft. leav. coll.
taught the sch. at New Haven, until he rem. to East Hampton, on L. I.
The coll. catal. has never yet been advis. of the yr. of his d. tho. it was

the old war. Yet he had in 1666 int. in the Ids. at Newtown, L. I. and
some yrs. bef. his d. liv. at West Chester that was then thot. to belong
to Conn. Of the time of his m. or name of his w. inq. has been fruit-
less ; yet his descend, in our age, has confid. that he had five ch. at least,
John, Daniel, Eliz. Priscilla, and ano. ch. he calls his " oldest d."
Samuel, Windsor, s. of the first John of the same, by w. Mary had
Samuel, b. 19 Oct. 1684; Rebecca, 20 Apr. 1687. His w. d. 3 Aug.
1690; and by Abigail perhaps had Rebecca, 9 July 1691; but very
confus. is the statem. in Stiles, 729-30. Thomas, Charlestown 1644,
freem. 10 May 1648, by w. Hannah had Sarah, b. 29 Mar. 1647;
Thomas, 26 June 1649 ; Mary, 11- Mar. 1652 ; ano. ch. 30 Apr. 1654;

Maiden side, there had w. Sarah, who, in Oct. 1651, stood up manfully, '
with her sisterhood, in defence of Rev. Mr. Matthews against the Gen.
Court. In Feb. 1662, he and his w. were rec. into the ch. of Charles-
town, by dismiss, from M. but prob. he had a hankering for heresy, as he
next yr. united with Gould, as a Bapt. having embraced the opinions of
that sect as early as 1658, tho. their ch. was not formed until May 1665.

1639, perhaps br. of Richard, with far better est.; counted a.fam. of six

Frodiswerd his w. had Recompense, b. 26 May 1644, a. " six o'clock
P. M." H. C. 1661, at Braintree had, Hannah, 24 Aug. 1646 ; Bezaleel,

Fredeswith and in Prov. rec. Freesweed, had Joseph, b. 6 Apr. 1652;
and Jonathan, 16 Nov. 1656. He was a merch. and he d. a. mid. life;
his inv. of 29 Apr. 1662 shows over £1000; well for that time. His
wid. m. John Mulford of South Hampton, Yorksh. E. Riding, and in
1670 sold to Rev. Antipas Newman of Wenham, that 110 acres granted
to O. Ano. O. there was, unhappi. at Salem, Sarah, impris. at Bostoif
from 7 Mar. to 10 May 1692, on charge of witchcraft, wh. was not brot.
to trial bee. she d. in gaol. How tenderly alleviat. was the suffer, of her
latest hours, is nowhere told. She was, perhaps, w. of that William of
Salem vill. freem. 1690. William, Braintree, had Bezaleel, b. 1650.
William, Newtown, L. I. 1656-86. Riker. William, New Haven,

she saved her life by confess, of impossib. guilt. See Abbot, Calef, and
Hutchinson, II. 31. Charming page is that in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII.
241, wh. gives her indictm. the gist of it being, that she " a covenant
with the devil did make, and signed the devil's book, and took the devil
to be her God, and consented to serve and worship him, and was bapt.
by the devil, and renounc. her former Christian bapt. and promised to
be the devil's, both body and soul forever, and to serve him." I rejoice,
that, aft. the evaporation of the infernal spirit, she had energy eno. to
acknowledge, 19 Oct. 1692,' bef. the venerab. Increase Mather (not Cot-
ton M. as in Geneal. Reg. XIII. 118, told) the falsehood of her confess,
for surely most of the charges in that indictm. would be better laid
against the judges in the oyer and terminer. They served, if they did
not worship the devil, and took him to be their God, whether they signed
his book or not. Had that book been brot. into Court, as it ought to
have been, or the governm. call, on to show at least, what means they
had used to get the precious rec. to the open view of the jury, the name
of William Stoughton, and more than one of his assoc. judges, I doubt
not, as clear, as that of Mary Osgood, would have flared in the sapphire
blaze. Hard is it to decide, whether prisoners or judges were under
stronger delusion. Sarah d. 22 Apr. 1667; Hannah d. 3 Aug. 1674.
