William Prynne (wh. suiFer. so cruelly from sentence of the Star Cham-

short time, hav. been invited home by former parish, in 1646, and went
next yr. Hinman, p. 61, mistakes Hugh for this br. as being with Col.
Fenwick, at his first coming, to Saybrook, whereas Thomas was not there
so early as four yrs. aft. his sec, visit. But he obey, the guidance of Dr.
Trumbull, common, safe. In the life of Hugh Peter (a work wh. for
its perpet. indifference to truth, and frequent bold violations of it, Farmer
thought it hazardous to quote), the oldest br. of Hugh call. William,
is said to have liv. at Boston, and to have had s. John, Andrew, Thomas,
William, Samuel, and Joseph. After very diligent search, no William is
found, either in Boston, or its vicinity; and I 'suppose this may be re-
garded as one of the many inventions of that book. William, Andover,
s. of Andrew, prob. was k. by the Ind. 13 Aug. 1696. Six of this name
had, in 1834, been gr. at Yale and four at Harv. Coll.

Peteeson, Cornelius, Boston 1685. Henry, and John of Lyme,
were of the train band 1678, and no more is kn. of either, exc. that John
was aft. of Duxbury, and m. Mary, d. of George Soule ; and that Henry
by w. Marah, m. 15 Apr. 1683, had Sarah, b. 20 Oct. 1686.

Pettifokd, Petford, or Pittford, Peter, Salem 1641, Mr. Felt
found ment. of, but nothing is told of him, exc. that he resid. at Marble-
head 1648. Among Charlestown bapt. is Samuel, s. of Mary Pettiford,
br. Baker's d. on 12 Sept. 1669.

Pettell, Anthony, Marblehead 1653, a fisherman, perhaps from
Guernsey.

Pettibone, John, Windsor, freem. 1658, m. 15 Feb. 1665, Sarah, d.
of Bigot Egglestone, had John,, b. 15 Dec. 1665; Sarah, 24 Sept. 1667,
d, young; Stephen, 3 Oct. 1669 ; besides Samuel, and sev. ds. of wh.
was ano. Sarah, of uncert. date. He had est. in that part made Sims-
bury, was one of the first sett, and there with John, Stephen, and Sam-
uel, was liv. 1712. Three of the name have been gr. »t Yale.

at Newtown, Thomas in 1660; Nathaniel, 1667; and John, in 1686.
Yet it may well be that his s. John, wh. m. Sarah, d. of Daniel Scofield,
was of Stamford 1669. Thomas, Exeter 1639, a signer of the orig.

as sec. w. in my opin. for there is some prob. that he had m. a d. of
Thomas Tresler, by wh. he had s. John, rememb. in the will of his gr.mo.
Perhaps he was a Quaker, at least. Felt II. 582 tells how Hannah P. in
Oct. 1659, was admonish. But she may have been w. of Nicholas P.
Isaac, Windsor, eldest s. of George of the same, m. 11 May 1663, or 11
Mar. 1664 (Parsons gives both dates only six lines apart in Geneal.
Reg. V. 369, so that it is quite doubtful wh. day we should prefer, but
Stiles takes the earlier), Ann, d. of the sec. William Gaylord, had Isaac,
b. 18 Sept. 1666, wh. had 3 ch. yet d. at 32 yrs. ; Sarah, bapt. 4 July

zer, 6 June 1 687 ; beside Daniel, and ano. both d. young. His w. d. Sept.

var. dates is seen, I have no explanat. Jacob, Westfield, br. of thepre-
ced. m. 2 May 1672, Dorothy, sec. d. of John Ingersoll, had Dorothy, b.
as one tells, 18 Oct. but Goodwin says Dec. 1673, d. in few wks. ; Dorothy,

JoHNj Charlestown, by w. Catharine had Catharine, b. 8 May 1659, says
the Middlesex rec. and the same authty. adds that Catharine Phelps, d.

or aft. and John Phillips at that time had w. Catharine wh. may have
had that ch. In some rec. the name is plain Philps, and this shows how
easily one may be converted to the other. John, Salem, perhaps s. of
