Oct. 1715, gave her all his est. He d. 17 Sept. and, I presume, it was
a doubt in the mind of the wid. whether the est. would amount to the
few shillings of expense. His gr.stone was lately found in the cemetery
of King's Chapel. Thomas, Dorchester, freem. 2 June 1641, d. 27
Oct. 1678 ; his w. Alice, wh. was terj yrs. older, hav. d. 7 days bef. Oft.
the name was writ, yet prob. not by hims. Like, or Lfeake. His will,
made aft. d. of his w. names no ch. but gives his prop, to br. Henry,

Thomas, Boston, where he own. Ids. bef. his resid. an erain. merch.
came from London to New Haven, tliere m. Mary, d. of Stephen Good-
year, the dep.-gov. of that col. had Stephen, b. 13 Feb. 1650; Mary, 27

and many yrs. held a trad, house there, was freem. 1671, selectman, had
large transact, with the Ind. by wh. he was k. 14 or 16 Aug. 1676,
being on a visit. He had made his will dur. a sickness so long bef. as
27 Jan. 1664, from wh. we learn, that he was br. of John, that his w.
had sis. Lydia, and not much more. His est. was large ; and his s.
Thomas enjoy, it at London, where he d. 22 May 1711, at the Middle
Temple; and his d. Ann, w. of Rev. John Cotton at Hampton, m. 17
Aug. 1686, next, of Rev. Increase Mather, wh. she surv. d. at Brook-
line, 29 Mar. 1737. William, Salem 1665, a cooper, perhaps s. of
Henry, allow. 1674, to sell beer ana cider, as was his wid. Ann in 1681.
Of Mrs. Margaret L. at New London 1646, .and many yrs. aft. at Ips-
wich [see GeneaL Reg. VI. 165], much hard labor has been expend, by
Miss Caulkins to learn her derivat. and m. but in vain. 'She d. says
Felt, 1672, leav. two ds. Hannah, w. of John Gallop; and Martha, w.
of Thomas Harris.

Lakeman, * William, rep. of the Isle of Shoals 1692, says Farmer.

Groton, I suppose, dur. the Ind. war, but had, by w. Mary, Sarah, b. 4

and prob. went back to G. where he was ens. and had been of^the
first' sett. d. 21 Mar. 1697. His f. was s. of William, and d. in Eng.
says Butler, and his wid. m. William Martin; but his name is nofgiv.
Three of the s. perhaps all, had fara. He had a d. Mary, elder than
any of these ch. m. 18 July 1674, Henry Willard ; and Sarah m. a.

Tradit. more credib. than common makes him bring the gr.ch. William
and John, perhaps at the same time with William Martin of Heading,
wh. m. their mo. yet it does not tell the name of their f. nor whether the
mo. m. in Eng. to Martin, nor whether the gr.f. had w. on this side of
the water, nor when or whence hq came. Shattuck, 95-, borrows the
tradit. of Butler in Hist, of G. 273, that he emigr. in his old age from
Redington. But this must be mistake, as there is no such place in Eng;
Prob. the parish of Ridlington is meant. That is a small parish in the
hundred of Martinsley, Co. Rutland, 2 and ^ ms. from Uppingham ; or
more likely the native seat of the Lakins may have been the smaller
parish of the same name in the hundred of Tunstead, Co. Norf k. 4 and ^
ms. from North Walsham. If he came with Martin, his old age should
not be thot. of ; for he pass, above thirty yrs. here. William, Reading,
br. of John, by w. Lydia, d. of the first Abraham Brown, had William,
b. 6 May 1655 ; John, 3 Jan. 1658 ; and Jonathan, 28 June 1661 ; rem.

freem. 1672, unless (wh. is not prob.) it was he, not his gr.f. in 1670;
lieut. 1673; and d. 22 Feb. 1700. Great list of descend, appears in,
Butler's valua. Hist, of G.

Lamb, Abel, Cambridge, perhaps s. of Thomas of Roxbury, in the

Barry calls this last ch. of Eliz. Caleb ; but the ch. rec. is copious, and
explicit to the contra. The town rec. said Benjamin, b. 27 Nov. but a
modern hand eras, that, and wrongful, ins. Caleb. Such violat. of the
vestal purity of rec. is less rare than might be expect. He m. 16 July

Magn. I. 25, has prov. the gr. superiority result, from tradit. of a story

30 Jan. 1648 ; and with this s. I pause to expose many errors. To him
is giv. s. Samuel, b. 16 Mar. 1678 by w. Mehitable Hobart. Sorry am
I to obs. that in the Geneal. Reg. XIII. 91, the statem, that "John,

Hobart can be found for that John to m. and he could not be bapt. at
Norton that day, for the town was not begun to be sett, till many yrs. aft.
