Redington, * Abraham, Rowley 1667, was rep. in 1686, for Tops-

1682; and Joseph, 20 Jan. 1684. Joseph, Lynn, a wine-cooper from
London, came prob. in 1634, was freem. 3 Sept. of that yr. had a fam.
Nathaniel and Benjamin, or d. Sarah, wh. m. 28 Dec. 1671, Thomas
Laighton ; certain, liv. to gr. age. Presid. Dudley pro. his will 28 Oct.
1686, that was made 20 May 1681, at Lynn. It names only s. Nathan-
iel, to wh. he gave Id. at Springfield; and Benjamin, mak. the latter
excor. and devis. to him est. at Lynn. Hutch L 341, says he came
over at 60 (but he could be little more than 40), and d. in Boston,
aged 110. He foil, authority of Judge Sewall (wh. in one place says he
d. at Lynn), not doubting to draw the conclus. as to his age on arr. when
S. said he liv. here a. 50 yrs. To this weight. Felt, Eccl. Hist. I. 531
offers no resistance. But as the Court rec. of Essex Co. show that giv.
evidence in 1657, he was a. 60, and in 1670, he call. hims. betw. 70 and
80, we may judge with highest confidence, that when he d. 22 Jan. 1686,
he had not run much beyond 90, and perhaps not reached it. Lewis,
whose regard was absorbed by Boniface Burton, barely refers to Sewall's
liberal allowance to Redknap, but gives no addit. to the credit of the
tradit. Sewall was very apt to believe what old persons told him, often
when their habits or power of mind should rather have led to distrust
their evidence. He owned est. at Hampton in Co. Middlesex, called
Blackbush right, near Hampton Court, wh. he sold in 1649 to EdwMd
Tomlyns.

Redman, John, Hampton, a blacksmith, one of the early sett, in
1685 was call. 70 yrs. old. John, Hampton 1678, prob. s. of the
preced. m. Martha, d. of John Cass, may have had John. Richaed,
Boston 1639, a mariner, was charged for murder, 1645, in Delaware
Bay, long imprison, but acquit, for defect, of evid. See Winthr. IL 237.
Yet the Court rec. seems to permit us to suppose, that his discharge was
for conven. of the prison keeper. Robbet, Dorchester, was of Milton
when he made his will, 30 Dec. 1678, pro. 31 Jan. foil. wh. ment. w.
Luce ; eldest s. John ; youngest s. Charles ; ds. Mercy ; Ruth wh. m.
Everenden, that is an unkn. man ; and s.-in-law William Delene, also
unkn. so by conject. may seem h. of Ruth.

Redway, Redwet, Readawat, or Reddawat, James, Rehoboth
1646, prob. had John, perhaps more, as Sarah, wh. m. 25 May 1660,
Samuel Catpenter ; and was bur. -28 Oct. 1676. John, Rehoboth, prob.
s. of the preced. had James, b. 10 Jan. 1679 ; and John, 10 Sept. 1682.

Reeve, or Reeves, Henet, came in the Speedwell 1656, from Lon-
don, aged only 8 yrs. but to whose care he was deliv. we kn. not. John,
Salem, came in the Christian to Boston 1635, aged 19 from London
prob. as apprent. of Francis Stiles, wh. next yr. carr. him to Windsor •

but he had sec. w. Eliz. wh. may have been mo. of these last two. A
few yrs. later, wid. Reeves was excommun. by the oh. Robert, Hart-

Stiles in " History of'Three of the Judges," the regicides, gave this name
Peirce, p. 352. Thomas, Roxbury, came in the Bevis 1638, from
Southampton, serv. of Henry Byley of Salisbury, at R. was serv. of
John Grore until 1644, m. at R. 15 Apr. 1645, Hannah Rowe, was
made freem. that yr. had Thomas, bapt. 5 July 1646; rem. that yr. to

Southampton, L. I. 1673, was prob. that goodman R. of the adjoining
town of Southold, made freem. of Conn. 1662; had a d. wh. m. Peter
Dickinson ; perhaps other childr. and it may be that Tapping R. the
learned jurisprud. of Conn. wh. was b. at Southold, deriv. blood from
him. William, Salem 1668, prob. br. of John, came in the Elizabeth
and Ann, from London 1635, aged 22. William, Medford, s. of John,

Reith, Richard, Lynn, m. 16 Feb. 1665, Eliz. George, as Mr. Felt
copies the rec. The name is strange ; but he is found at Marblehead
1674.

Relph, Ralph, or Relp, Thomas, Warwick, m. 1655 or 6, Mary,
wid. of John Cooke of the same. But he had liv. some yrs. bef. at Guil-

Dec. 1661; and Deliverance, 20 Aug. 1666; beside Benjamin, of wh.
the last four with Samuel, are ment. in his wiU, pro. 1682. It also

Gore, and d. or was bur. 8 June 1667. John, Haverhill and Andover,

His s. Jonathan, one of the judges of the Sup. Ct. d. 1745, had Jonathan,
H. C. 1736, wh. d. after two yrs. Thomas, Windsor, had Thomas, John,
and Sarah, perhaps bef. he went there perhaps from Rowley, where he
perhaps had w. Mehitable, and was freem. 1672 ; had Joseph, b. at W.
1 Sept. 1675; rem. to Suffield, there had Benjamin 1677; took p. of
alleg. 1679, with s. Thomas and John, they being then 16 yrs. old and

been gr. at Harv. and one at Yale.

wid. of John Lewis, d. of William Brooking. See Randall.

Retell, J John, Salem, a merch. of London, greatly engag. in the
promot. of settlem. of Mass. Bay, by the Gov. and Comp. chos. an
Assist. 20 Oct. 1629, came in the Jewell, one of Winthrop's fleet, June
1630, but went home next mo. in the Lion. Thomas, New London 1 658,
a merch. from London at Barbadoes 1660, but liv. here 1662-66. Miss
Caulkins thinks he was proscribed at the restorat. having stood for the
Commonwealth, that he is the hermit of Brain tree at a later date, called
" Tom Revel," a regicide, or holy hermit gone crazy, he and bis hog en-
joying their common stye, of wh. absurd tradit. in Whitney's Hist, of
Quincy is given, « that when he d. the Gov. of the Province and other
disting. men came out from Boston, and were his pall-bearers." That the
hog, being nearest relat. was chief mourner, is unaccountab. omit. Usual,
there is some slight foundation of troth, to afford appear, of support to. the
wildest story ; but here even that is wanting. We read the ridic. tale in
a note on p. 36. Every one knows, that there was no regicide of this name ;
that no Gov. of the Prov. after 1691, could have been such a fool, nor
would any Gov. of the Col. after 1660, have shown such public honor to
a regicide ; nor lastly is any such name, as Rev. W. P. Lunt, after scru-
tiny of Braintree rec. assures me, to be found among d. at B.

Eeyner. See Rayner.

Eeynolds, Renold, or Renolds, Francis, Kingstown, in the Nar-
raganset country, 1686, was perhaps s. of James the first. Henrt,
Salem, had gr. of Id. 1642, was of Lynn 1647, and perhaps again of S.
Henry, Kingstown, wh. m. Sarah, d. of James Greene, was br. of
Francis. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. 183. .James, Plymouth, if we may
suppose his name to be carelessly spell. Renell in 1643, perhaps rem.
to R. I. jurisdict. and bef. 1674, was with fam. of sev. s. estab. at Wick-
ford, in the Narraganset Id. and in the conflict betw. Conn, and R. I. for
jurisdict. was imprison, by one party. See Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. 540.

Elizabeth from Ipswich, Co. SuflT. 1634, aged 20, rem. in two yrs. to
Wethersfleld, rem. again bef. 1644, to Stamford, and may have been f.
of Jonathan and John, freem. in 1669, of Greenwich, where the fam. long
contin. John, an early sett, at Isle of Shoals, complain, against in 1647
(when he was constable), for having a w. there, as he might have been
on the mainland, for not hav. one. See 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 250.

and I think that capt. in Philip's war on serv. at Chelmsford, 25 Feb.
1676. He is in Boston tax list of 1695; but perhaps had some yrs.
liv. at Bristol. His s. John was, I presume, that mem. of the sec. eh.
at Newport, that Presid. Stiles, in MS. Itiner. notes the d. of at Bristol,
30 Jan. 1757, in his 90th yr. Richard, a passeng. in the Mary and

a ch. at Wethersfield, but prob. after few yrs. rem. to Boston, had w.
Mary, but no ch. is found in town or ch. rec. so that we infer that all the
five ch. named in his will of 20 Apr. 1658, good abstr. of wh. is in
Geneal. Reg. IX. 137, viz. Ruth Whitney, w. of John, Tabitha wid. of
Matthew Abdy, Sarah Mason, and Mary Sanger, w. of Richard, be-
side Nathaniel, above, must have been brot. frotn Eng. He is ment.
with remarka. kindness in the will of Capt. Robert Keayne, and d. 27
Apr. 1659. Robert, Boston, by w. Eliz. had Eliz. b. 2 Jan. 1669 ; and
Ann, 11 Aug. 1670. I think he was a fisherman, may have been s. of
the preced. and liv. at Pulling Point. Thomas, New London, perhaps
on the tax list of 1666, m. 11 Oct. 1683 Sarah, d. of Joseph Clark
the first of Newport, and in 1 680 had a lot at Westerly. William,
Duxbury 1636, m. 30 Aug. 1638, Alice Kitson, may be the same wh.

Zachary, d. 1712, his will of that date, nam. w. Waite, and ch. Zachariah,
John, Joseph, William, Resolved, Phebe, and Waite, of wh. all but the
first were minors, but of them William and John were by a former w.
I Mercy, youngest d. of Roger Williams, wh. had been w. of Samuel
