cense to be m. during the governm. of Sir E. Andros that was, if possib.
more contempt, than odious. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VH. 170. * Nich-
olas, Rehoboth, prob. s. of Joseph, had fam. of wh. we kn. only, that a
young ch. d. in Aug. 1676; and that Elisha was b. 4 Apr. 1683. He
was rep. 1669, and 10 yrs. more, and a lieut. The milit. spirit was, I
suppose, perpet. for two of the name, perhaps his s. Nicholas and Ichabod
partook in the wild expedit. against Quebec 1690, and Nicholas was a
corpo. of Gallop's comp. Perhaps neither came safe home. Paul,
Hartford 1639, was not an orig. propr. nor is it kn. from what town in
Mass. he went. More do we regret, that no light can be found to indi-
cate from what part of Eng. or in what sh. he came; but the name of his

is said, a House of Wallingford ; Sarah m. Thomas Clark of Hartford ;
and Hannah m. 12 May 1680, John Shepherd of Hartford. Two more

his ch. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIH. 269. How long, after arr. at
Boston, he contin. there, or whither he rem. is uncert. My conject. is
that he short, aft. liv. at Rehoboth. In the Geneal. Reg. XIV. 320 this
name is by Mr. Drake writ. Perk ; and his eyes eftgag. on the same an-
cient MS. as mine, might seem more trustworthy, as younger. But since
my reading was not chang. by the skilful keeper of her Majesty's rec.
in his exquisite coUat. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 130, I may trust the punc-
tilious student to follow wh. seems to him more correct. Sobert, Hing-
ham, prob. br. of Joseph, was bred at Magdalen Coll. Cambr. where
he had his degr. of A. B. and A. M. the latter 1 603, was min. over 30
yrs. at Hingham, Co. Norfk. yet was harass, for nonconform, to some of
the ceremon. by Bp. Harsnet, his diocesan, whose imprudence in honor
of the ch. was so gr. as to excite complaint from the peop. of Norwich in
1 623 to the Ho. of Commons in Pari. Two successors in that see were
milder, White and Corbet, especial, the latter, but when Wren, that bird
of ill omen, came to the cathedral, no puritan could long serve at the al-
tar. Mather gains the delight of tell, in his Magn. how this Peck was
put under a bushel. III. 214. He came with w. two ch. and two serv. in
the Diligent, 1638, and on 28 Nov. of that yr. was ord. freem. 13 Mar.

his old parsonage, there d. 1656. Brook's Purit. III. 263-5. Sam-
uel, Hartford, s. of Paul, had Samuel, b. 1672, but I know not whether
he had more, or wh. was his w. He d. 1696. Samuel, Greenwich,
eldest s. of Rev. Jeremiah, m. 27 Nov. 1686, Ruth Ferris, perhaps d. of
Peter of Stamford, had Samuel, b. Mar. 1688 ; Jeremiah, 29 Dec. 1690,;

John ; Joseph, bapt. 17 June 1641 ; and Eliz. 7 May 1643, not 6, as pr.
in Geneal. Reg. IX. 262, for that was Saturday. The harvest of blun-
ders in that list of bapt. is not chargeab. to the very careful transer.

in that docum. may sometimes be erron. as in this instance, for the ch.

cemet. By the rec. of Lyme (where he d. at the ho. of his s. Joseph)
the age is 83 ; but New Haven says, at the reput. age of 90. As a gen.
rule, the shorter term of a prolong, life, when two or more dates are

we may safe, presume, that the s. at whose ho. the f. d. wrote the acco.

Pedington. See Eedington.

Pedeick, John, Marblehead 1674, had been there many yrs. His
will was of 2 Aug. 1686, and ment. w. Meriam, eldest s. John, and eight
more ch. Benjamin, Agnes, Mary, Ann, Sarah, Meriam, Eliz. and Jo-
anna. One of these ds. was prob. w. of John Stacy ; one of John Par-
rot ; and ano. of Henry Prentall, as he calls ea. of these his s.-in-law. A
John Pedicle is nam. of Marblehead at the same time, but of him I kn.
nothing.

Peek, George, Marblehead 1674.

Barry, 155, says, tho. Jackson, 387, wh. acknowledges her, makes the
first w. Godsgift, d. of Gov. Benedict Arnold, wh. also had Freelove, and
it may well be that Pelham took both. Jackson adds that he d. 20

of Godfrey Basseville Esq. of Co. York, here had Mary, b. prob. 12
Nov. 1640; Frances, prob. 9 Nov. 1643; but in the Geneal. Reg. IV.
182, Mr. Pilsbury's copy of the rec. that is, I think, exact, gives the same
yr. for both, and one must be wrong; beside Herbert, 3 Oct. 1645; wh.
d. or was bur. 2 Jan. 1646. He was a gent, from Co. Lincoln, matric.
at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, 12 Nov. 1619, in his 18th yr. and Gov.
Hutchinson says, he was of that fam. wh. attain, the highest rank in the
peerage one hundred yrs. ago, as Duke of Newcastle. He was much en-

the usual correctn. of the State chirogr. Pulsifer.
