Mary m. 6 Aug. 1670, Joseph Whiting of Westfield, as the rec. has it,
but Goodwin's scrupul. Geneal. says 5 Oct. 1669. John, s. of the

there m. Margaret, d. of Rev. William Hubbard, had John, Margaret,
and William, all b. there, rem. to Springfield, where his w. d. 11 Nov.
1716; was lieut. col. elk. of the Courts and Regist. of deeds, and d. 25
Apr. 1721. * Joseph, Springfield, br. of the preced. a physician, was
rep. 1681, and 2, but in this last yr. d. 30 Dec. unm. at Boston. JWiL-
LiAM, Roxbury, an Assist, came in the fieet with Winth. 1630, had
been assoc. with the patentees, 1628, wh. purch. from the Plymouth

Frances Sanford, a grave matron of the ch. of Dorchester, and a. 1636,

his resid. near Chelmsford in Old Eng. He was a man of great enter-
prise, and highly honored as Treasr. bef. his leav. the seacoast, and as
Couns. after, until his publicat. of the dangerous judgm. as to religion,
wh. he had formed 30 yrs. bef. For this he suffered indignity in 1651,
when his book was by our governm. ordered to be burned, and lest the
same form of purificat. might reach to the author, he went home, as
more freedom was enjoyed in his native Id. See the letter, in full, to
Sir H. Vane, from our Gov. Endicott and his council of Assist, in 3
Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 35. • At Wraisbury, on the Thames, near famous
Runnymede, in Co. Bucks, he d. Oct. 1662, in 72d or 74th yr. his w.

26 Oct. 1657. Four of this name had been gr. at Harv. and three at
Yale, 1825.

Pyne, James, Hartford 1647, may have been only trans, inhab. there
or at Fairfield. See Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 150, 158. Thomas, the
freem. of Mass. 6 May 1635, was, by Farmer, thought to be the same
as Finney, wh. does not to me seem prob.

some other town, where in 1665 he was 18 yrs. old, but no more is kn.

of him, exc. that his Inv. is found of 14 Mar. 1690. William, Ips-
wich, perhaps s. of the preced. but of wh. I learn nothing exc. by his
will of est. among Prob. rec. after dec. 10 Apr. 1719, when wid. Mary,
eldest s. William, and other s. Robert and Francis, and other relat. are
ment. It is possible from adopt, his name for one of his s. that he was of
kin to Quarles, the puritafi poet. Yet in Boston Joanna was m. by
Gov. Bellingham to Kichard Smith of Lancaster, 2 Aug. 1654; tho.
no occur, of the name can be found for more than 80 yrs. after the sett.
of the town, either in births, or deaths, or in the public reg. of deeds or
of wills.

QuBLCH, Benjamin, Boston, by w. Eliz. had Nathaniel, b. 9 Dec.
1692; and Benjamin, 25 Aug. 1694; prob. rem. soon, as he is not in
the list of inhab. 1695.

QtJELVES, RoBEET, is the impossib. name writ, by the Secreta. in our
Col. Rec. for Oct. 1645 (the bungler was Increase JNowell), among the
petnrs. for a new planta. that our rulers wuold have gained from R. I.
or Providence jurisdict. No doubt it was Twelves, of Braintree, the
freem. of 1663, and in later vols, of the rec. restitut. was made in place
of the false letters.

Quick, Nathaniel, New Hampshire, d. 1677. Kelly. William,
Charlestown 1636, a mariner, as seems from Trumbull, CoL Rec. I. 6,
rem. to Newport^ where he was adm. an inhab. 27 Dec. 1638. Prob.
his relig. opin. or those of his friends led to that, and he sold ho. and Id.
June 1644. Ann Q. of Charlestown, perhaps his mo. sold her ho. and
Id. in Apr. 1640.

Qdiddington, Abraham, one of the soldiers k. by the Ind. 19 Oct.
1675, at Hatfield, but of what town he had been inhab. is unkn. Abra-
ham, Boston, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Sarah had Ehz. bapt. 31
Dec. 1682, but her b. is not found in the rec. of the town, so that I infer,
he came in from the neighbor. He had also Ann, bapt. 1 Feb. 1685,
and was of the 3d or O. S. ch. but he no more is heard of. His d. Ann
m. 14 Oct. 1703, Thomas Holland.

QuiLTEE, Joseph, Ipswich 1679, perhaps s. of Mark the first, is
ment. in the valu. pamphlet of 1689, Revo, in N. E. justif. p. 38. Mark,
Ipswich 1637, came prob. with Rev. Nathaniel Rogers the yr. bef.
bring, some ch. and d. perhaps, 1654, his wiU being of 7 Feb. in that
yr. His ch. were Joseph, Mark, Mary, Rebecca, and Sarah ; the two
first may have been b. in Eng. His d. Mary is nam. in the will of Rev.
N. Rogers, 3 July 1655, as his maid serv. Mark, Ipswich, s. of the
preced. m. Frances, d. of Richard Swan of Rowley. He was b. a.
1630, and his will is of 4 Nov. 1678.
