SAMUEL, Hingham, came from the city of Norwich, with Francis Lawes, of Salem, a weaver, prob. his apprent. 1637, but the old Cushing MS. says, he was of old Hingham, aged 18, went, perhaps, on reach. his majority, to H. where liv. his br.

SAMUEL, Taunton, br. of John, had Samuel, b. 1 June 1664; Hannah, 24 Mar 1666; Thomasin, 27 Oct. 1667; Elizabeth 24 Apr. 1669; Ebenezer, 15 Oct. 1673; Rachel, 16 Sept. 1677; John, 15 Sept. 1679; and Thomas, 1683. SAMUEL, Hingham, s. of the first Samuel, was a soldier in Philip's war, serv. in cavalry attach. to Johnson's comp. for Narraganset campaign, Dec. 1676, m. 29 Apr. 1687, Deborah, d. of William Hersey, had Deborah, b. 15 June 1689; Samuel, 1 Feb. 1691; Jedediah, 2 Oct 1692; Mary, 18 Sept. 1694; Rebecca, 11 Aug. 1697; Elisha, 3 Sept. 1699; Lydia, 14 Sept. 1701; Abigail, 11 Jan. 1704; and Susanna, 18 Apr. 1706. Jedediah, wh. d. at more than 90 yrs. is progenit. of very num. public men, as thro. s. Enoch, f. of the disting. Levi, H. C. 1772, of Worcester, wh. was f. of Levi, H. C. 1802, Gov. of Mass. and of Enoch, Gov. of Maine, as thro. s. William of Solomon, the glad historian of his nat. town. STEPHEN, Hingham 1638, came that yr. from Wymondham, a town a. 9 ms. from Norwich, bring. mo. w. and s. Stephen, not in the Diligent, that arr. 10 Aug. of that yr. as Cushing, wh. was careful to note his fellow-passeng. told us; had Sarah, b. 22 Mar. 1642; and his w. wh. name is unkn. d. next mo.; the d. d. 4 Nov. 1649, and he d. 11 Oct. 1658. His will, made 3 days bef. ment. his mo. Joan, Susanna, d. of his br. Thomas, and gives part of his est. to mo. but most to only ch. STEPHEN, Hingham, only s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. Feb. 1660, Elizabeth d. of Matthew Hawke, had Elizabeth b. 3 Nov. 1660; Mary, 27 Dec. 1662; Stephen, 9 Nov. 1665; David, 22 Sept. 1668, bef. ment.; Bethia, 29 Oct. 1670; Abigail, 7 Apr. 1673; Margaret, 30 June 1677, and James, 26 Oct. 1681, bef. ment. was freem. 1680, and d. 17 Sept. 1692, and his wid. d. 4 Nov. 1713. Elizabeth m. 4 Jan. 1693, Ephraim Marsh; Mary m. 11 Jan. 1688, Enoch Whiton; Bethia m. 16 Apr. 1701, John Lane; and of the other two as. no rec. of m. or d. is found.
STEPHEN, Hingham, s. of the preced. never m. was ens. town clk. and d. 27 Dec. 1717; THOMAS, Hingham 1636, the weaver, elder br. of the first Samuel, was two yrs. or more at Watertown and Charlestown, having, says the Cushing MS. come with Nicholas Jacob, a relat. in 1633; had gr. of lds. in 1635, and house lot gr. 3 July 1636, so that he would be judged a first sett. with Hobart, and may have been the freem. of MR. 1638 or of 18 May 1642. His first w. Susanna d. Mar. 1641, and he had ano. w. Mary, who, by one report, prob. erron. outliv. him, and d. 2 Sept. 1675, leav. no ch. His will is without date, but well pro. provides for w. gives small legacy to br. Samuel, larger to Samuel, and Daniel, s. of that br. and smaller to ea. of the other liv. cb. exc. Rebecca, latest b. wh. may render prob. that it was made bef. she was b.
THOMAS, Hingham, the miller, prob. came 1635, certain. had [[vol. 3, p. 94]] house lot 3 July 1636, brot. sev. ch. perhaps two or three. rem. a. 1652 to Taunton, where he took sec. w. 10 Dec. 1665, Elizabeth Streete, prob. wid. of Francis. He, in his will of 28 Aug. 1683, call. hims. "eighty yrs. or thereabout," pro. 6 Mar. foll. he ment. with these ch. of former w. Thomas, John, Samuel, Sarah, Mary, and s.-in-law Joseph Willis, perhaps h. of Sarah, and Sarah's s. Thomas. In Geneal. Reg. VI. 188, it is print. Linton.
THOMAS, Hingham, the cooper, s. of Thomas, in O. E. had gr. in the town 1636, more likely, in my judgment, than either of the preced. to have been the freem. of Mar. 1638, had, bef. com. from Eng. m. 1630, a a. of Andrew Lane, had two ch. of wh. one d. and the other, Sarah, was brot. and d. soon aft. arr. and here had Thomas, bapt. 6 May 1638; Joseph, 22 Nov. 1640, bef. ment.; Benjamin, 7 May 1643, bef. ment.; Deborah, 3 Aug. 1645; and Sarah, 6 Oct. 1650, d. young. His w. wh. name is unkn. d. 13 Feb. 1683, and he d. 28 Sept. 1691. His will, of 13 July 1688, names the four liv. ch. Deborah m. 13 June 1678, as sec. w. Samuel Thaxter. Tradit. brings him from West of Eng. where he left br. John This may seem not improb. if we substitute E. for W. The name belong. to Co. Norf'k. or the adj. Co. Lincoln.
THOMAS, Hingham 1638, the husbandman, br. of the first Stephen, prob. younger, had gr. of ld. 1638, came, says the Cushing MS. in 1638 from Wymondham, Co. Norf'k. with Jeremiah Moore, perhaps is the freem. of 18 May 1642, had w. Margaret, d. of Richard Langer, and ch. Caleb, bapt. 8 Oct. 1643, d. soon; Joshua and Caleb, tw. 2 Mar. 1645, of wh. the latter, I think, liv. not long; Susanna; Mary, b. 10, bapt. 23 Apr. 1648; Sarah, 29 Sept. bapt. 6 Oct. 1650; Thomas, 26 Dec. 1652; Elizabeth and Ruth, b. 19 Nov. 1664. He d. 16 Aug. 1692; but his will, of 24 May 1681, names the w. and eight ch. His d. Susanna m. 16 May 1666, to Joseph Barstow of Scituate; Mary m. 5 Jan. 1675, Francis Barker of Duxbury; Sarah m. 6 May 1675, Thomas Marsh; Elizabeth m. 23 Jan. 1678, Daniel Lincoln, bef. ment.; and Ruth, m. Jan. 1685, Samuel Gill. It seems very curious, that at our Hingham, within the first three yrs. of its sett. should be found four heads of fams. nam. Thomas Lincoln, and yet at Hingham in O. E. where this fam. name was quite freq. not one Thomas occurs in the rec. from 1600 to 1663 incl. neither as f. nor s. among ms. 15 in number, of wh. 8 were of males, nor among 28 bur. nor among, 62 bapt. Clearly the other parishes of Co. Norf'k. had the name of bapt. in greater abund. for males of this surname.

The wid. in 1669, says Deane, complain. that part of the prop. giv. her by her h. was kept back by his s. Robert, so we may, I think, infer, that she was not the mo. His d.

MOSES, perhaps of Kingston, s. of the first John, m. 9 or 19 Nov. 1668, Mary, d. of Henry Knowles, was, I presume, of Wickford, as the Conn. favorers name their claim to the Narraganset country. His will of 1700, tho. he did not d. bef. 6 Jan. 1705, ment. s. Moses, then a minor, ds. Mary, w. of John Burlingame; Martha, w. of Thomas Burlingame; and Rebecca w. of John Lippet.

In a few yrs. he disagr. with his brethr. of the ch; who cast him out from their communion, 6 July 1651, tho. only for his conscientious scruples, and soon aft. he went home, where more liberty was encouraged by Cromwell than our people liked.

LISCOME, or LISCOM, NICHOLAS, Marblehead 1663. Felt. Perhaps he had gr. of ld. 1637, and is the man whose name is by Felt, I. 169, print. Listen, wh. seems a very uncommon surname, and the mistake night easi. arise by reading c as t, wh. in the old engross. band it so much resembles as to have a thousand times been so tak. Possib. the modern fam. of Luscome at Salem may thus be derived. See Lyscom.
