eldest s. Joshua, the testat. gave his Ids. at H.

Langford, John, Salem, mov. in from ano. town ,but wh. is unkn. tho.
prepond. of prob. is in favor of Sudbury. He was freem. 1^45, yet his
name is not among ch. memb. in Salem, down to 1650 ; but there he was
liv. 1689, as, Farmer says, is shown by Revo, in N. E. Justif. 41.
Mr. Felt assures me, there was a Francis Lingford of Essex Co. in
1663 ; and possib. he may have been of the same fam. Richard,* writ.
Lanckford, Plymouth 1632.

Langhorne, or Longhorne, Richard, Rowley 1649, d. 1669.
Thomas, Cambridge 1644, by w. Sarah, d. of Bartholomew Green, had,

Sarah, d. of Thomas Gill, was a soldier in the comp. of brave capt.
Johnson of Roxbury, Dec. 1675, an innhold. 1695. Of his ch. I kn.
only Sarah, b. 15 Mar. 1668, wh. m. Nov. 1686, Jonathan May of H.
William, Lynn, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, in 1677 was, I think, of Charles-
town. But it may be well to see Longley.

Langmead, Richard, Boston perhaps, mariner, d. 1660, leav. w.
Ellen, wh. had admin. 18 June 1661.

Langstafp, Henry, Portsmouth 1631, or soon aft. sent over by

Langton, Lanocton, or Lankton, George, Springfield 1646, m.

(strangely call. s. in the. rec. pr. in Geneal. Keg. IX. 171), b. 22 Aug.
1649, and no more ch. but had formerly been at Wethersfield, and by
first w. had there or in Eng. sev. ch. ; rem. a. 1658, to Northampton?

1653, and liv. with his gr.f. at N. ; Joseph, bapt. 1660, liv. at F. ; and
Eliz. Joseph, Ipswich 1648, may have been s. of Roger. Roger,'
Ipswich, freem. 4 Mar. 1635. His inv. of 24 Jan. 1672 may seem to
prove, that, he d. that winter. Samuel, Northampton, s. of John, m.

Large, Jervice, Scituate, a serv. of Samuel Hinckley, brot. prob.

came over from L. I. may be the man wh. m. at Saybrook, 1 Nov. 1659,
Phebe, d. of Thomas Lee, and possib. was s. of William. William,

sion of trouble, tho. so popular for a time that the people call, their
town aft. that from wh. he came, Northara, near Barnstable, in Devon ;
but he went off in 1642, d. at home 1669, in 68th yr. His s. George,
bred at Trinity Coll. Cambridge, was min. of Cockermouth, in Cumbei'-
land, eject. 1662, d. 26 Dec. 1700, in 71st yr.

Laekin, II Edward, Charlestowri 1638, by w. Joan had John, b. 10
Mar. 1640; Sarah, 4 Sept. 1641 ; but ^no. rec. says Eliz. b. 5 Sept.;
Thomas, 18 Oct. 1644; and, I presume, Edward; certain. Sarah, again,
12 Mar. 1648 ; was freem. 13 MUy 1640, ar. co. 1'644. He d. bef. mid.

of the first Henry Hall, had Edward and John, prob. also Eoger, and
d. Hannah to dwell there ten yrs. later. Edward, Westerly, s. of the
preced. m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Cottrell, had Stephen, Nicholas,
David, Eliz. Penelope, Tabitha, Edward, John, Samuel, and Lydia.
Edward, Charlestown, perhaps s. of the first Edward, m. 1 Nov.
1688, Mary Walker, had Edward, wh. d. 18 Nov. 1689; John, bapt.

Edward, again, 13 Sept. 1696; Joanna, 19 Mar. 1699; and Samuel,

Robert, bapt. at once, 4 July 1675, of wh. Robert d. in few wks. ;
Joanna, again, 12 Mar. 1676 ; Sarah, 2 Dec. 1677 ; and he d. 17 Feb.
1678. Roger, Westerly,-perhaps s. of the first Edward of the same,
m. Hannah, d. of the sec. James Babcock of the same ; but I kn. no
more. Thomas, Charlestown, s. of Edward, shogmak. m. 13 Sept.
1666, Hannah Remington, wh. d. 9 Nov. 1673, and 18 June foil. m.
Eliz. d. of Francis Dowse, wid. of Samuel Miles, had Thomas, wh. d.
20 May 1676; and Thomas, again, bapt. 9 Sept. and d. 8 Nov. 1677;
and d. hiras. 10 Dec. foil, of smallpox. Gladly would we receive better
notes of tiiis very num. fam. If the stocks spring from Edward alone,
or not, is not kn. to me. At Salem, in 1668, was Mordecai, but unless
he be the same as Larcom, of him I hear nothing, exc. that he sign, that
yr. petit, against imposts,

Larrabee, Benjamin, Falmouth, s. of Isaac, a milit.. man, recov.
the prop, of his f. wh. with his fam. had been fore, to fly from the war,
m. Deborah, d. of John Ingersoll, had Benjamin, b. 1700 ; and he d.
1733. See Willis, II. 27. Greenfield, Saybrook, had (by his w.

suppos. to have been a Brown of Providence) Greenfleld, b. 20 Apr.
1648; John, 23 Feb. 1650; Eliz. 23 Jan. 1653; Joseph,. Mar. 1655, d.
young; and Sarah, 3 Mar. 1658. Geeenfield, Saybrook, s. of the
preced. m. Alice, d. of Thomas Parke of New London. Isaac, Fal-
mouth a. 1680, being driv. off by the Ind. went to Lynn, says Willis;
had Benjamin, b. 1666, at Casco, bef. ment. ; beside Samuel, and
Thomas. In Maine the name, spread much. William, m. at Maiden
Nov. 1655, Eliz. perhaps d. of George Felt; was freem. 1690. Some-
times this name is pervert, to Leatherby, as very oft. it was sound.

Laet, Cornelius, Exeter, took o. of fldel. 30 Nov. 1 677.

Laskin, Hugh, Salem 1636, freem. 22 May 1639, d. Mar. 1659.

Latcome, William, a passeng. in the Hercules 1634, as print, in
Geneal. Eeg. IX. 267, wh. may be error for Larcom, or Larkham; but
nothing can be kn.

Latham, * Cart, Cambridge, m. Eliz. d. of John Masters, and prob.
wid. of Edmund Lockwood, had Thomas, b. Nov. 1639 ;. Joseph, 2 Dec.
of a yr. to be supplied by conject. as the rec. is defic. ; rem. early to
New London,, where he was of active serv. rep. 1664, and aft. to 70.
He had there Ehz. wh. m. 25 Jan. 1678, John Leeds; Jane, m. Hugh
Hubbard ; Lydia, m. John Packer ; and Hannah, wh. m. prob. John
Lockwood. . He d. 1685. JbsEPH, New London, s. of the preced. took
w. Mary at Newfoundland, there had Gary, b. '14 July 1666, and at
New London ten more ch. at his d. in 1706 leav. seven s. one d.
Lewis, Newport, of wh. we kn. no more, but that his d. Frances m.
Jeremiah Clark, and was mo. of Gov. Walter and others ; but it may be
that he never came to our shores. Robert, Cambridge, perhaps br. of
Gary, liv. two yrs. or more with Rev. Thomas Shepard, rem. to Marsh-
field, where he was constable 1 643, thence to Plymouth, where he m.
Susanna, d. of John Winslow, in 1649, and had Mercy, b. 2 June 1650;
bef 1667 rem. to Bridgewater, had s., James, Chilton, Joseph, Eliz,
Hannah, and Sarah. Mitchell thinks him s. of William. Hannah m.
Joseph Washburn. Thomas, New London, s. of Gary, m. 15 Oct.
1673, Rebecca, d. of Hugh Wells, had only ch. Samuel; and his wid.
m. 24 June 1676, John Packer. Groton side of the harbor of New.
London was the resid. of the fam. still perpet. there. William, Ply-
mouth, came in the Mayflower, 1620, serv. to Gov. Carver, only a
youth, and, in 1627, had sh. in the div. of cattle, being in the lot with
Gov. Bradford, yet was never nam. as one of the Mayflower's comp. in
1620 when he was a hoy under Carver's charge, and for the div. of
Ids. in 1624, with ano. serv. of G. may have help. John Howland to
count four heads. By the discov. of Bradford's' Hist, his right to pas-
sage in the first sh. is prov. He was of Duxbury 1637-9, and Marsh-



LAT — LAV 59

field 1643, and 8, and in Bradford we see, that aft. so long resid. here,
he went home to Eng. thence to the Bahamas, and d. of starvation. Of
one Latham, in our country, there is idle tradit. that he was brot. up
with Charles L but no benefit or evil of the companionsh. is boasted.

Lathrop. See Lothrop.

Lattimore, or Latimer, Christopher, Marblehead 1648, in 1663
sold dwel.-ho. to Robert Hooper, but was there liv. 1674. Hugh,
Marblehead, perhaps s. of the preced. m.' 1669, Mary, d. of "William
Pitt. John, Wethersfield, had Rebecca, b. 1646; Naomi, 1648; Abi-
gail, 1649 ; 'John, 1650 ; Elisheba, 1652 ; Jonathan, 1655 ; and Bezaleel,

Thomas HoUister of W. Ro'bert, New London, mariner, a. 1660, m.
prob. at Boston, Ann, wid. of Matthew Jones, and d. of George Griggs,

Eliz. m. Jonathan Prentiss. Robert, New London, s. of the preCed.
d. 2 Nov. 1728, leav. John, perhaps H. C. 1703; Robert; Jonathan;
Samuel ; and Peter.

Latting, Letten, or Lettin, Josiah, Huntington, or Oyster Bay,
L. I. 1685, was s. prob. of Richard. Richard, Concord, had Josiah,
b. 20 Feb. 1641 ; and ano. s. on 12 Sept. 1643 ; but the rec. gives not
the name ; rem. to Fairfield, and thence in few yrs. to L. L 9. Hunting-
ton. In 1663 he was order, to depart for not submit, to jurisdict. of
Conn, and in Nov. 1672 was by New York denounc. for disloyal speech
against the Duke.

Laughton, Thomas, Boston 1660.

Laurenson, James, and John, Newtown, L. I. 1686, were prob. of
Dutch descent.

Laurie, Francis, Salem, of wh. the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. II. .
15, gives all that I have learn, that his will of 6 Nov. 1665, pro. June
foil. ment. s.-in-law John Neal and w. Mary, and gr.ch. Jeremiah, John
Jonathan, Joseph, and Lyife. But conject. is bold enc. to suggest, that
the same man is intend, where Felt, II. 447, places the graveyard " on
the hill above Francis Lawe's ho. ; " and there is no doubt of the sound-
ness of the conject. after turn, to the artic. Lawes in this volume ; but
whose reading. Felt's or Patch's should be prefer, must be left to ano.
