William Barstow of Scituate, had three s. and two ds. of neither of wh.
do I find the names. His w. d. 18 Dec. 1684, and by sec. Mary, d. of ,
Gov. Hinckley, wh. d. 22 Oct. 1658, was f. of Rev. Thomas, b. May
1687, H. C. 1707, the assid. annalist, whose service in perpet. evidence
relative to our early hist, exceeds that of any other man, since the first
generat. Of written or printed matter he was a useful expounder ; but
the great delineator of our literary men, half a centu. ago, has well
cautioned us against his credulity. See Eliot's Biog. Diet. He was
also f. of Nathan, H. C. 1718, a man of talents super, to his bro.'s but
of less value to society. Thomas, Gloucester 1649, by w. Margaret
had Thomas, b. 24 Dec. 1650; John, 1653; Mary, 1658; and Isaac, 7
Nov. 1663. Babson, 129, says his wid. d. 24 Feb. 1706. Thomas,
Gloucester, eldest s. of the preced. m. 27 Sept. 1676, EUz. Harraden,

July 1686; Benjamin, 1693; and Job, 1695. William, Dover 1671.
One Mary P. a Quaker, came in the Speedwell, 1656, but of her no
more is kn. than Hutch. I. 197 tells of her denounc. judgm. of God,
from her window in the prison, against Gov. Endicott, as he went by, on
Sunday, from the ch. Twice she was taken to his house, where two
min. were present ; and tho. I fear , she suffer, worse correction than
from their mouths, yet the virulence of their affections did not perhaps '
go beyond her banishm. Eleven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at
Harv. one at Yale, and two at other N. E. coll.

Prindle, John, Milford 1645. Possib. the name is the same as
that foil.

Pringle, William, New Haven, m. 1655, Mary Desbrough, had
Phebe, b. 1657; John, 1658; Mary, 1660; and perhaps others; was a
propr. 1685, and so was Joseph, wh. may have been a s. This is now
changed to Prindle, it is said.

Peoctor, Benjamin, Ipswich 1678, prob. s. of the first John.
George, Dorchester, freem. 17 May 1637, by w. Edith had Hannah,
b. perhaps in Eng.; Abigail, b. 24 Aug. 1637 ; Thomas, 16 Dec. 1638,
if we may dare to contradict the rec. wh. is 1637, or it has been thot.
that the 1637 day was that of his bur. and he may have been brot. from
Eng.; Samuel, 8 Nov. 1640; and d. 29 Jan. 1662. His wid. rem. to

two were imprison, in the execrable fanaticism of 1692. These ch.

should have suffer, the power of delusion and the devil passed away,.
Yet four yrs. later, the wid. had to beseech the legislat. to order relief
of her husband's prop, from the forfeiture. See Felt II. 484. Too
brief is this statement of Mr. Felt, and slightly seems the case to have
been misapprehend, by him. No doubt, Gedney, the judge of Probate,
was as much bound to maintain the technical law of Eng. in opposition
to that of humanity, as his superiors of the other tribunal to assert the
institute of Moses against that of common sense ; and she " being con-
vict, and sentenc. of and for the detestab. crime of witchcr." was " look,
upon as d.-in-law, and left out of the will of her h. and nothing giv. her
therein, nor order, her upon the distrib. of the est. of said P." and the
Ct. had the requisite illumina. to decree, that when she produc. the par-
don she bee. alive again. The h.'s will was made 2 Aug. so three days
