of the first John; had in Nov. 1655 Id. at D. was selectman 1660, and

From a MS. in the Brit. Museum, marked No. 6174 in the catal. of

Anthony, sent by his and her f. 1643, by capt. S. (no doubt our Israel),

to America, and the MS. adds, " now liv. there, the w. of Otis,

with sev. ch." Of these ch. we learn not, for most, the exact date of b.
and must not be confid. of the order ; the names were Stephen, b. 1652 ;
Eose; Eichard; Nicholas; Solomon, 15 Oct. 1663, d. next yr. ; Ex-
perience, 7 Nov. 1666; and Judith. Bef. 5 Nov. 1677, he had sec. w.
Shuah, wid. of James Heard, on whose est. he was then admor. but no
ch. of this m. is heard of. By third w. Grizzle, a young d. of James
Warren, he had Hannah, b. 1689 ; and a d. 6 Mar. 1689, the subject of
romantic story. He was k. by the Ind. 28 June 1689, with his d. Han-
nah, when his w. and the ch. of 3 mos. were tak. away to Canada. The
ch. was bapt. by the French, who purch. her, and the mo. aft. m. a
Frenchman, having two ch. and being left a wid. she came back to N. E;
ra. capt. Thomas Baker of Brookfield, for wh. and her suffer, the town
made her gr. of Id. if she would not go again to Canada. Her former
ghostly father wrote to preserve or recover his convert, but our Gov.
Burnet took up the spiritual controversy, and the Eomish priest failed.
She liv. to 23 Feb. 1773. The mo. m. a Mr. Eobitail at Montreal, and

but were recapt. by fresh pursuit at Conway, on their route to Canada.
Eose m. John Pinkham, had ten ch. ; Experience m. Samuel Heard ;
and Judith m. John Tuttle, wh. was k. by the Ind. In the first, sec. and
third generat. no fam. in N. E. I think, could match 'this of Richard O.
for measure of calam. from war. Richakd, Dover, s. of the preced.
dissatisf. with the ch. as his f. had been 1663, proceed, further in dissent,
bee. a Quaker, yet was wound, by the Ind. 26 July 1696, when his br.
Nicholas was k. ; had w. Susanna, and ch. Rose ; Richard ; Rebecca, b.
11 July 1695; Stephen, 22 Aug. 1698; and Nicholas, 8 Apr. 1701 ;.

of the preced. perhaps older, m. 16 Apr. 1674, Mary, d. of William
Pitman, had Stephen, Nathaniel, and Mary ; was k. by the Ind. 28 June
1689, the same time with his f and the s. were both carr. to Canada,
there liv. and d. as good Catholics. Stephen, Scituate, s. of John the
sec. m. 1685, Hannah, wh. d. 1 May 1729, only ch. of that John Ensign
who gave her all his est. aft. d. of his mo. by will made the evening bef.
he fell in the great battle of Rehoboth, 26 Mar. 1676 ; had Hannah, b.
16 May 1686; Mary,7 July 1689 ; Ensign, 1691; John, 1694; Stephen,
3 Nov. 1697; Isaac, 1699; Joseph, 1709; and Joshua, 1711; was a
capt. d. 26 May or Aug. as the gr.st. may have var. read. 1733. His
will was of 172£f. Sixteen of this name had, in 1825, been gr. at Harv.
as Farmer notes, and none at other N. E. coll. all descend, of John the
sec. I believe. Mr. Otis, the assiduous antiquary of Yarmouth, from
wh. I have gain, much knowl. of Scituate, Barnstable, and Yarmouth
early sett, is <leriv. from ano. stock, emigr. at least eighty yrs. later than
the Hingham pioneer, and coming from a part of Eng. widely remote
from the first.

the preced. ar. co. 16*41, m. a d. of John Humfrey, Esquire, says Lewis.

Otvtat, John, Boston 1657, own. Id. in Lynn, and may be of the
same fam. as the last. William, Taunton 1654.

Otell, Nathaniel, a cordwainer, from Dover, Co. Kent, came with
a serv. a. 1636, as by an authent. docum. I read in the Hist, of Sand-
wich, Eng. appears ; but where he sett, is unkn.

Overman, Thomas, Boston, m. Hannah, wid. of Mahalaleel Mun-
nings, d. of John Wiswall, was freem. 1671, d. bef. 1675. Of his wid.
Hannah, admin, was giv. 5 June 1694, to Matthew Johnson of Woburn.

to his sis. Mary Shore, aunts Sarah Phillips, and Eliz. Greenough, cous.
Eliz. Greenough, and others. Farmer was led into a striking error in
giving from Boston rec. death of William P. 11 Nov. 1653, by omission
in his correspondent's transcr. of the words that precede, for the orig. is
thus : " Susan, the d. of Edward Breck of Dorchester, serv. to Mr.
William Paddy, d. 11 Nov. 1653." In his Appendix he made stranger
explanat. wh. would have been avoid, had the rec. been scrutiniz.
More preposterous than either of these two mistakes was the supposit.
started some 20 yrs. since, on finding a gr.st. with his name and descript.
laid in the common sewer, near the old town ho. in State sir. that this
was the spot of his interm. as if so excellent a pub. oflBcer had been bur.
in the highway. It had, prob. been reject, for its coarseness. To cor-
rect ano. error wh. comprehends sev. is almost indispensa. needful, on
account of the authority it might carry from its place in 3 Mass. Hist.
