Fairfield, having the yr. bef. bot. of the Ind. a large tract on the W.
side of the Kennebeck opposite his f's. isl. now Phipsburg, had, beside
four ds. Daniel and James. He, who may be the one who sw. fidel. at
Pemaquid 1674, with James, was k. by the Ind. in May 1690 at Fal-

of freem. 1655. John, Saybrpok, s. of William, m. 24 Dec. 1666, Mary

sett, had Hannah, b. 20 Aug. 1671 ; John, 26 Mar. 1675 ; and Abiah,
26 Mar. 1677 ; rem. to Wallingford, and very likely had more. John,
whose w. Alice sufi!. by hang, as a witch, in the horrible delusion, at
Salem, 22 Sept. 1692, was not of that town, but I think, possib. of An-
dover, yet Felt, II. 480, has not specif. John, Andover, s. of Joseph, k.
by the Ind. 29 June 1677, at Scarborough, on serv. as a soldier under
Capt. Swett. John, Maiden, freem. 1678. John, Newton, may have
been that s. of Eobert, wh. Cambridge rec. says, d. 15 May 1682 ; but, as



P A R K E E . 353

there was two Johns at N. ace. Jackson, p. 10, one disting. as South,
the other as East, it may be hard to determ. Yet of the Newton John,
s. of the first John of the same, Jackson teach, that by w. Mary,
he had John, b. 17 Aug. 1687; Mary, 3 Mar. 1690; Deborah, 11
Feb. 1693; Sarah, 24 Mar. 1695; and Thomas, 9 Jan. 1700; and
d. Oct. 1713. His wid. d. Mar. 1715. John, came from London
1671, in the Arabella, but it is altogether doubtful where he sat
down, or whether he had not bef. liv. on tliis side and gone home
on business. John, Andover, s. of Nathan, m. 24 May 1687, Han-
nah Brown, but I feel uncert. as ano. John was of Andover, b.
of Joseph, and neither of these, s. of Joseph or Nathan, was likely to be
h. of that Alice, old enougli to be hanged for a witch in the fanaticism of
1692. However, the s. of Nathan, named John, had John, Nathan,
Benjamin, and James, of whom the last three says Farmer, were proprs.
of Concord N. H. 1726, and he d. 1738. John, Eeading, s. of Hana-
niah, by w. Deliverance, had Hananiah, b. 10 Oct. 1691, d. on. serv. at
Port Eoyal, 1711; Andrev^, 14 Feb. 1693; Josiah, 11 Apr. 1694;
Mary, 4 Dec. 1695, d. at 14 yrs. ; a s. whose name is not plain, 19 Aug.
1697, wh. d. at 12 yrs. ; and John, 8 Nov. 1703. Prob. he was freem.
1691, liv. late at Lexington, where his w. d. 10 Mar. 1718, and he d.
22 Jan. 1741. Jonathan, Boston, s. of Ealph, had Thomas, was a
merch. mariner, and d. bef. 1706. Jonathan, Newton, youngest s. of the
first John of the same, by w. Deliverance, had Mary, b. 25 Sept. 1701 ;
rem. to Needham, there had Jonathan, 21 July 1711, and perhaps others
bef. or after, and ano. w. Sarah. Joseph, Newbury, came injttie Confi-
dence from Southampton 1638, aged 24, was a tanner of Newbury, Co.
Berks, had Joseph, b. 15 May 1642, rem. to Andover where he was one
of the founders of the ch. Oct. 1645, and had more ch. of wh. were Ste-
phen, b. 1651, and Samuel, Thomas, non compos, and ds. Sarah, Mary,
and Euth, who all outliv. him, also John k. by the Ind. 1678 ; and he d.
5 Nov. 1678. All his est. in Eumsey, Co. Hants, a. 8 ms. from South-
ampton, he devis. to his w. by the last will, made 4 Nov. of that yr. her
name was Mary, and a wid. of that name d. 2 Oct. 1695. Joseph, Chelms-
ford, m. 24 June 16^5, Eebecca Eead, had Ann, b. 7 Feb. 1656; Mary,
28 Oct. 1657; John, 31 July 1659; and John, 24 Nov. 1660; but the
rec. gives not mo. of the first two, and for the third names Mary; and
Margaret for fourth. Yet it may seem prob. that one w. either Mary or
Margaret brought all ; and perhaps there were more. Joseph, Dunsta-
ble, is altogether unkn. to me, unless he were of ano. town, and tho. a
propr. only a tempor. resid. he had by w. Jilargaret, as on the rec. of
Chelmsford is to be seen, Joseph, b. 30 Mar. 1653 ; Ann, 2 Feb. 1655,
bapt. 20 Apr. foil. d. young; Mary, 28 Oct. 1657; John, 4 Nov. 1660,

d. 8 Oct. foil. ; Ann, 16 Nov. 1663 ; and Sarah, 16 iTov. 1666 ; as shown
in Shattuck's Memorials ; yet I can hardly doubt that confus. betw. hus-
bands of Rebecca and of Margaret, in the rec. of their ch. must have
occurr. especial, as ea. has Mary b. on one day. Joseph, Groton,
prob. s. of James the first, had two ws. Eliz. and Hannah, the latter m.
19 Nov. 1684, and by them had Sarah, b. 16 Nov. 1666 or 1676 ; Eliz.
31 Aug. 1679; Simon, 27 Aug. 1687; Joseph, 1 Mar. 1689; Benja-
min, 3 Dec. 1691; and John, 26 Aug. 1695. In the excel. Hist, of
Groton by Butler, five pages are filled with descend, of James and Jo-
seph. But Shattuck's Memorials, page 376, does not contain the name
of the first ch. as above giv. yet supplies two, Nehemiah and Isaac, bef.
Simon. Joseph, Saybrook, s. of William, m. 3 June 1673, Hannah Gil-
bert, had Joseph, b. 3 July 1674 ; Jonathan, 15 July 1675 ; d. at 8 yrs. ;
Sarah and Hannah, tw. 15 Feb. 1677, both d. very soon; Hannah, 18
July 1679 ; Margety, 22 June 1681, d. in few mos. ; Margery, again, 12
Mar. 1683, d. at 1 yr. ; Matthew; and Jonathan, again, 6 Oct. 1686.
Joseph, Scitnate, s. of William of the samefhad, says Deane, from 1684
to 1702, Alice, Mary, Joseph, Judith, and Miles, but he does' not fix the
date of any. Joseph, Andover, s'. prob. of Joseph the first, m. 7 Oct.
1680, Eliz. Bridges, wid. of Obadiah, and prob. d. 6 Apr. 1684; and
perhaps his wid. m. 26 Apr. 1686, Samuel Hutchinson. Joshua, Gro-
