some facts appear irreconcil. with this presumpt. Twenty of this name

He had sec. w. Elinor, and d. a. 1678. Tradit. says his ch. all rem. to

Owen, for rescuing hims. with great boldness from slavery, after seven

a oh. bur. 27 Apr. 1642 ; Joseph, bapt. Aug. 1642 ; Mary, 5 Mar. 1644 ;

in 1658 had a quarrel at Scarborough with Foxwell; and was rep. but

1687, in wh. his w. and five ch. are nam. and d. soon aft. Willis I. 140.
His d. Sarah m. 24 Sept. 1669, George Hodges of Salem ; and had
Sarah, as in Essex Inst. II. 151. Joseph, Falmouth, s. of the preced. m.

John, tw. 22 Dec. 1678 ; Israel, 17 July 1681 ; Eachel; and Ann. He
prob. had been driv. by Ind. hostil. some yrs. bef. to Salem, or Lynn, of
wh. last place he is titled, when freem. 1680. By third w. m. 14 Apr.
1686, Damaris, wid. of Thomas Searle, he had three more ch. of wh. the
last was Benjamin, b. 29 Sept. 1688 ; and d. 1710. Willis II. 8. Sam-
uel, Salem, s. of Joseph the first, m. 1 Feb. 1677, Rachel Guppy, had
Samuel, b. 12 Dec. 1677; John, 4 Oct. 1679; Stephen, 9 May 1681;
Rachel, 5 Aug. 1683; John, again, 25 Dec. 1685; Nathaniel, 4 Aug.
1687; Sarah, May 1691 ; Rachel, again, 11 Sept. 1693; and Joseph, 9
Feb. 1697 ; and d. Feb. 1718. Thomas, Salem, s. of Benjamin prob.
or perhaps of the sec. David, tho. less likely, m. Mary, eldest d. of Tim-
othy Lindall. One Judith P. aged 1 6, came in the Planter from Lon-
don 1635, with James Hay ward, wh. m. her. Both were serv. of Nich-
olas Davis of Charlestown.

Phips, or, in mod. days, Phipps, James, from Bristol, Eng. a gun-
smith, sat down near the mouth of the Kennebeck riv.bef. 1649, ha v. had
very many ch. by the same w. 21 s. and 5 ds. in all, if credulity be suffi-
ciently dilated to embrace the story, one of the youngest, the celebr. Sir
William (equival. to all the s. in the opin. of his biogr.), being b. 2 Feb.
1651, this latter fact being more prob. than the numb. wh. however
Mather asserts in two places, Magn. II. 38 and III. 1 65, tho. in this sec.
place, we are naturally led to distrust his assert, by the manner of its in-
troduct. to the support of his enormous marvel of John Sherman's felic-
ity. Had he once more declared it, he would perhaps have accorapan.
his story with some incident to compel disbelief Whether ten or twenty
of the boys were b. on the other side of the water, he d. when William

420 P H I P S .

was young, and his mo. liv. yet the name of no other s. exc. John, or d.
exc. Mary, Margaret, and Ann, was ever told. Of twenty-one s. the re-
gard for males in nine cases out of ten, so greatly exceed, that for females,
we are justif. in looking for the names of more than two, especial, as
three out of the five ds. count, by Mather, find place in the will of their
br. the Gov. John, Reading, by Eaton classed among the early sett, of
wh. it is desira. to kn. more, that something might be said beyond guess,
that he was b. at Charlestown. Had any date been affix, we should be
able to conject. that he was, or was not, that John, s. of James, wh. had
John, prob. b. near the mo. of Kennebeck wh. accomp. his uncle William
1686, in search of the treasure ship. No more is kn. of him. But some
amus. tradit. as to the defeat of testamenta. benefact. to the s. by Sir Wil-
liam, may be read in Morse, who would make up for such injustice, by
giv. to his s. Jedediah near ten yrs. longer life than belong, to hitn.
Such is the tendency to magnify old age. * Samuel, Charlestown, s. of
Solomon of the same, taught the gr.sch. m. 8 Aug. 1676, Mary Phillipsj_
d. of Henry, wh. d. early ; and by sec. w. Catharine had Samuel, bapt.
21 May 1682, d. Soon; and Samuel, again, 10 Feb. 1684; was rep.
1692, at the first sess. under new chart. Reg. of deeds, and Clk. of the
County, and d. at the age of 70, Aug. 1725. Very strange seems the er-
ror of Farmer, in his Memoir of Grad. of H. C. making Gov. Danforth's
d. Mary his w. when she belong, to his br. Solomon. Solomon, Charles-
town 1641, carpenter, was adm. of the ch. 15 Jan. and freem. 18 May
1642, by w. Eliz. had Eliz. b. 23 Apr. 1643 ; Solomon ; Samuel, H. C.
1671, bef. ment. ; Mehitable, wh. d. 15 July 1657 ; Mehitable, again, 10
Dec. 1657 ; and Mehitable, again, 6 June 1659, if my transcript, of rec.
be right; Joseph, bapt. 13 Oct. 1661 ; and perhaps others; d. 25 July
1671, aged 52. His will of 4 May 1670 makes w. Eliz. extrix. provides
for the s. Samuel at coll. Solomon, and Joseph, beside d. Eliz. Ray
and her ch. d. Mary, mean, perhaps Solomon's w. and her ch. yet unb.

Jan. 1675; Thomas, 22 Nov. 1676, H. C. 1695, I think (tho. Farmer
gave him to Samuel, as he had also his mo.) ; Eliz. 27 Feb. 1681 ; Jona-
than, 7 Jan. 1683 ; Eliz. again, 5 Jan. 1684; and it is observ. that this

read in Morse, 195, who makes the Bapt. regard it as a judgm. upon him

Phipps hims. said " he was bewitched," and his opin. is equally to be re-
spected in our days. § I William, Boston, s. of James, b. says his pan-

Saco, but had no ch. was driv. by Ind. hostil. to Boston 1676, and I dis-
cov. him there in command of a trading vessel, 1677 ; he prevail, by his
earnest desire to hunt up a Spanish wreck, in getting, 1683, a king's
ship, the Algier Rose, and in a contempo. Memoir of Sir John Bramp-
ston (s. of the old judge, Who sat in the immortal cause of John Hampden
for the ship money), I find this condensed descript. of him, as " a sea capt.
who was well skill, in mathemat. and had acquaint, hims. in India with
some that had the art of diving ; having some guess where the ship per-
ished, apprehend, he could recov. the treas." Good luck attend, his un-
dertak. but a mod. Eng. author of distinct, wh. ascrib. to him the invent,
of a diving-bell for his purpose, ought to know that Edward Bendall had
used his diving-bell successful, in Boston harbor, near eight yrs. bef.
Sir William was b. and may read in "Winth. Hist, of N. E. that the no-
ble machine was next yr. employed at St. Kitts. For his success he was
knight, by James II. 28 June 1687, and after his return here, was made,
by Andros, Sheriff of N. E. Happi. he join, the ch. of Cotton Mather
8 Mar. 1 690, was freenj. a fortnight later, and, as his spiritual guide ex-
ulting, tells, was bapt. 23d of that mo. this being almost a yr. after the
revo. against that power that made him sheriff, and in May 1690 he con-
ducted the little attack, by only seven hundred men, on the French of
Nova Scotia, with success, and was chos. an Assist, at the ensuing elect.
The great expedit. that sail, in Aug. foil, against Quebec, was project, by
him, " as well formed an enterprise," says Mather, " as perhaps was ever
made by the N. E." tho. in this, the world's opinion has not concur. He
was not content to have the nautical control merely, in wh. his experi-
ence could have been useful, but, with greater generosity than skill or
propriety, assum. the direction of the land forces, thereby saving the
reputa. of Walley, our ch. m>ilit. officer, to the injury of his own. On the
failure of this Quixotic campaign, he went to London, 1691, with intent,
to seek aid from the new king in ano. attempt upon the bulwark of French
empire in the new world; but was most lucki. divert, from that pur-
suit, by the appointm. as Gov. in the new chart, on the recommend, of
Increase Mather to the king. With Mather and the chart, he arr. at
Boston 14 May 1692, but his incapac. was soon discern, and in two yrs.
for indecent or boisterous conduct he was recall, from the Prov. to Lon-
don, and there d. 18 Feb. 1695. A monum. to his mem. stands in the
ch. of St. Mary Woolnoth. In Mass. the history of his admin, is the
melancholy monum. for his public breach of the peace was a scandal that
never befel any other ch. magistr. and the horrible delusion of the witch-

terous fable never heard of bef. this generat. that Sir Constantine Phips,
the Tory lawyer, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, was his s. and the pro-
genit. of Lord Mulgrave of the last century, may be duly esteem. It
must be regret, that so respectab. an author as Smiles in his enumerat. of
disting. mem. of the peerage, should have adopt, so fabulous an origin
for the Normanby fam. See Self Help, p. 169. With his com. in May

this name is found in div. of Shawshin Ids. 1652, among people of Cam-
