had Jonathan, 26 Mar. 1679; and Sarah, 14 Feb. 1681, wh. d. soon;
and again might have, at Marlborough, Phineas, 24 Aug. 1684. Joseph,
Marlborough, s. of the preced. had w. Eliz. wh. d. 13 Oct. 1733, aged

uel, b. 1693; Nahum, 1695; Sarah, 1698; Zephaniah, 1700; Andrew,

bury, s. prob. fifth of Edmund the first, b. in Eng. freem. 1660, m. 2
Nov. 1654, Martha Lamson, perhaps d. of Barnaby of Cambridge, had
Sarah b. 9 Sept. 1655, wh. m. a Loker; Martha, 17 Aug. 1656, m. John

a Ware; Isaac, 1668; and Patience, 5 Mar. 1671, m. a Leiand. His
will was pro. 30 Dec. 1717. Michael, New London, freem. 1663, as
in Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 406, yet the name is not in Caulkins. Na-
thaniel, New London, freem. 1669. Nathaniel, Sudbury, s. of
Thomas the first, had Nathaniel, Mary, and Patience, but he had two ws.
Sarah, and next m. 1704, wid. Patience Stone, and he d. 13 Nov. 1726.

ham, 1709. His w. d. 1749, and he d. 28 Nov. 1753, aged 95 yrs. and
one mo. less a week, allow for change of style. By the common tendency
to exagger. he is made 97 in Geneal. Reg. XIIL 140. Sev. of his ch.

but I kn. neither names nor dates, and he d. 4 Sept. 1768. Eanball,
Warwick, s. of first John of the same, had childr. but no rec. is seen of
them. EiCHAKD, Cambridge 1635, rem. to Concord 1636, freem. 2
June 1641, had Eliz. b. 27 Oct. 1641; and John, 23 Feb. 1644; d. 9
June 1709, aged, says the rec. more than 100 yrs. wh. Shattuck judicious,
reduced. Farmer reports that he left 8 s. wh. liv. to gr. ages, showing
how easy tradition borrowed for him the facts of EdmYind, of wh. he is
not kn. to be a relat. Robert, Boston, spelled Roys, Roise, and Royce,
in dif. rec. freem. 1 Apr. 1634, had prob. come 1631, as he is No. 137 on
the list of ch. mem. by w. Eliz. had Joshua, b. 14, bapt. 16 Apr. 1637 ;
Nathaniel, bapt. 24 Mar. tho. town rec. says b. 1 Apr. 1639 ; and Pa-
tience, b. 1 Apr. 1642, bur. next week; Nathaniel d. young. His wid.
m. I presume, Michael Tarne, for they call. Joshua R. their s.' when in
1668 the three unit, to mortg. est. Perhaps there were both Rice and
Roise. See Roise. Robbkt, Stratford 1656, was of New London
after, freem. 1669. Samuel, Sudbury, s. of Edmund the first, b. in
Eng. m. 8 Nov. 1655, Eliz. King, had Eliz. b. 26 Oct. 1656, wh. m.
2 Jan. 1677, Peter Haynes; Hannah, wh. m. . . . Hubbard; Joshua;
Edmund; Esther, 1665, wh. m. 1 Nov. 1683, Daniel Hubbard; Samuel,

had rem. to Marlborough, m. 1668, sec. w. Mary, wid. of Abraham
Brown, wh. d. 18 June 1678 ; and he prob. d. 1684, or early next yr.
for his will was pro. 7 Apr. 1685. Samuel, New London 1669.
Thomas, Sudbury, s. of Edmund the first, b. in Eng. by w. Mary had
Grace, wh. d. 1654; Thomas b. 30 June 1654; Mary, 4 Sept. 1656, m.
1678, Joseph White; Peter, 24 Oct. 1658; Nathaniel, 3 Jan. 1660;

borough, had there Ephraim ; Gershom, said to be b. 9 May 1667 ;
James, 1669; Jonas, 1673; Grace, 1675, m. 1702, Nathaniel Moore;
perhaps EUsha ; and Frances, wh. m. an Allen ; and in Geneal. Reg.
XIII. 140, was made to live 96 yrs. His will was pro. 1681, so that we
may be sure his age was by ten yrs. magnif. by his s. as in Geneal. Reg.
XIIL 140; and the will of his wid. was pro. 1715. Thomas, Marl-
borough, eldest s. of the preced. by w. Ann m. 1681, had Jedediah, b.
1690 ; Abiel ; Ann ; Arthur ; Adonijah ; Perez ; Vashti ; Beriah ; Jason ;
Thomas; and Charles. In Geneal. Reg. XIH. 140, his age is call. 94;
but my doubt is so strong, that I wish to kn. the day, mo. and yr. when
he d. Timothy, Concord, freem. 1690, m. 27 Apr. 1687, Abigail, d. of
John Marrett of Cambridge. Twenty-four of this name had been gr. at
Harv. in 1849, and six at Yale.

orig. or date of arr. in our country we are ign. was there bef. 1660, says
Caulkins, had eldest s. John, b. 1666"; Israel; Mary; Penelope; Lydia;
Eliz. ; and Hannah ; but when she assures us that all the seven were bapt.
26 Mar. 1671, we necessarily deduce that most, if not all, of the ds. were
b. bef. the eldest s. and that careful writer suppos. he was m. bef. he sett.
at New London. He had also David, bapt. 27 July 1673, and d. 1687.
