|MATTHEWS, BENJAMIN, Dover 1659, was s. of Francis, and had s. Francis. CALEB, New Haven, s. of William, m. 13 Jan. 1702, Elizabeth Hotchkiss, d. perhaps of Daniel. DANIEL, Boston, mariner, m. Mary, d. of James Neighbors, was first serg. in the comp. of Moseley for the Narraganset serv. Dec. 1675. FRANCIS, Portsmouth 1631, of the men sent over by Mason, was of Exeter 1639 to 46, rem. to Dover, prob. d. 1647, when, perhaps, his wid. Thomasine (with childr. Benjamin, Walter, and Martha, wh. m. first a Snell, and next, a Browne), was on the est. he purchas. 1640 of William Beard. Descend. wh. write the name Mathes are nam. and respect.

JAMES, Charlestown 1634, prob. rem. bef. 1639 to Yarmouth, where he had Samuel, b. 1 May 1647; Sarah, 21 July 1649; Esther, 8 Jan. 1651; perhaps more ds. but certain. six more s. of wh. only John and Benjamin are nam. to me, the latter being youngest s. and progenit. of all wh. remain on the Cape, as Otis instr. us; was rep. 1664. Prob. his w. was Sarah, d. of William Hedge; and his d. Esther m. 10 June 1695, Daniel Willard, both parties hav. past mid. age.
JOHN, Roxbury, had Gershom, b. 25 July 1641, perhaps bapt. but the rec. of ch. prior to Dec. is lost; and Elizabeth 14, bapt. 22 Oct. 1643. Ellis, in his Hist. 123, follow. the erron. suppos. of Farmer, a. his rem. to Springfield, and adds that he was excomm. for drunken. Now that censure was on 1 May 1659, many yrs. later than his namesake was at S. but then he ought to have turned over the ch. vol. very little, and seen that he was restor. to his honora. relation 29 Dec. 1660. He was freem. 18 May 1642, when the Col. rec. spells it Mathis. JOHN, Rehoboth, perhaps rem. to Springfield, m. 1644, Pentecost Bond, had two ch. wh. d. one Sarah, bur. 7 Jan. 1650, and the w. was k. by the Ind. 5 Oct. 1675. He was fined two or three times for drunken. but that frailty would not fully prove his ident. with the preced. He m. sec. w. and had s. wh. d. young, and he d. 25 Apr. 1684. JOHN, Boston 1645, a tailor. JOHN, Charlestown, m. 7 Jan. 1609, Margaret Hunt, and he d. 28 June foll. JOHN, Yarmouth, s. of James, by w.

MARMADUKE, Malden, was s. of Matthew of Swansea, in Glamorgansh. and in his 18th yr. matric. 20 Feb. 1624. at [[vol. 3, p. 177]] All Souls, Oxf. came to Boston, in a sh. from Barnstable, 21 Sept. 1638, and his w.

He preach. at Yarmouth 1639 to 43, for in Aug. of this latter yr. his w. was dism. from our ch. to that of Y.; was adm. freem. of Plymouth Col. 1641, had Manasseh, bapt. 24Jan. 1641, by Lothrop, at Barnstable, but came to Hull a. 1644; some yrs. later taught at Malden, where his troubles are copious. detail. by Frothingham, in Hist. of Charlestown; he had there been ord. but, against the good will of the hearers, he was forced to depart, was then employ. at Lynn and other places, finally went home, and Calamy says he d. at his nat. place, a. 1683. MORDECAI, H. C. 1655, was, I presume, s. of the preced. and, as no more is heard of him, prob. he went to Eng. ROGER, Dorchester, had gr. of ld. Feb. 163O, but prob. soon rem.

MATTHEWSON, JAMES, is by Farmer, put into the list of earliest sett. of R. I. but I have found nothing to add, exc. that at Providence he took the engagem. of alleg. to Charles Il. in May 1666, and prob. had Ruth, wh. m. 1 Apr. 1686, Benjamin Whipple. JOSEPH, wh. m. 19 Feb. 1715, Sarah, d. of the sec. Valentine Whitman, is call. s. of Daniel. Yet wh. Daniel was, or where he liv. I find not.
MATTOCKS, DAVID, Braintree, freem. 1630, had w. Sarah, and d. Elizabeth wh. was decrepid, one s. and d. at Roxbury bef. 14 May 1654, when his inv. was dated, and his d. d. 4 July 1655. The wid. m. 2 May 1656, Thomas Rawlins of Boston. JAMES, Boston, a cooper, came from Bristol, perhaps bef. 1633 (at least his d. Alice was then w. of Nathaniel Bishop), join. the ch. in Feb. 1639, and was made freem. 13 Mar. foll. Perhaps all his ch. were b. in Eng. In his will, made 21 Jan. 1667, wh. is on the latest page in Vol. I. of Suffk. Reg. he names s. Samuel, and ds. Alice, w. of John Lewis, wh. had been wid. of Nathaniel Bishop, and Mary, w. of Samuel Brown, m. 9 July 1 661.

SAMUEL, Boston, s. of James, m. 30 Mar. 1653, Constance, d. of Richard Fairbanks, had Samuel, b. 15 Oct. 1659; James, 27 Oct. 1662; Constance, 10 Sept. 1665; Zaccheus, 15 Sept. 1668; John, 14 Sept. 1669; Elizabeth 18 Aug. 1670; Mehitable, 7 Nov. 1672; and Mary, 13 Nor. 1673. Maddox is very easily confound. with this name, as well as Maddock, and I dare not, in some cases, disting.

[[vol. 3, p. 178]] PHILIP, a soldier from the E. part of the Col. in the spring of 1676, was in Turners comp. and took part in the Falls fight, then sett. at Springfield, m. Sarah, d. of John Hawkes of Hadley, had Margaret, b. 1678; Philip, 1680; John, 1682; Isaac, 1684; Sarah, 1687; rem. to Deerfie}d, there had Eleazer, 1689; Gershom, 1690; Nathaniel, 1693; Ebenezer, 1695; and Mary, posthum. 1697. He d. 30 Dec. 1696, and his wid. m. Daniel Belden, as third w. and d. 17 Dec. 17O1, in 95th yr. Of his s. Philip, with w.

MAUDE, DANIEL, Boston, came in the James, from Bristol, 1635, in comp. with Richard Mather, was bred at Emanuel, Cambr. where he had his A. B. 1606, and A. M. 1610, kept the sch. for some yrs. join to our ch. 25 Oct. 163O, freem. 25 May foll. yet without prefix of respect; for sec. w. m. Mary Bonner, a wid. with four ch. went to Dover, there was first min. on sett. found. 1642 to his d. in 1655. His will was of 17 Jan. in that yr. He left no ch. by either of his ws.
MAUDSLEY, HENRY, Braintree, came in the Hopewell, capt. Babb, in the autumn of 1635, aged 24, had Mary, b. 29 Sept. 1638; Samuel, 14 June 1641; and, perhaps, otbers; ar. co. 1643; freem. 1646; we kn. not the name of his w. nor any more item. Dr. Harris claims him for Dorchester 1630, but without suffic. warrant, that I can discov. yet he had gr. of a houselot 1637. JOHN, Dorchester, freem. 14 Mar. 1639, by w. Elizabeth had Joseph, b. 1638, as print. in Geneal. Reg. V. 244, tho. I think the s. call. Joseph in the rec. may have been John; and whether any more, or when that w. d. is unkn.; d. 1661, bef. 4 Oct. the date of his inv. but by w. Cicely's will of 28 Nov. foll. are nam. s. John, d. Elizabeth and s. Thomas. This Cicely, wh. may seem to be the same as w. Elizabeth d. 3 Dec 1661.
JOHN, Windsor, s. of the preced. m. 10 or 14 Dec. 1664, Mary, d. of Benjamin Newbury, had Benjamin, b. 13 Oct. 1666; Margaret, 4 Feb. 1668, d. young,; Joseph, 21 Dec. 1670; Mary, 3 May 1673; and Consider, 21 Nov. 1675; was freem. 1666, lieut. in Philip's war, rem. to Westfield 1677, bec. freem. of Mass. May 1678, there had John, 21 Aug. 1678, d. at 12 yra; Comfort. 8 Dec. 1680; Margaret, again, 22 May 1683; Elizabeth 17 Nov. 1685; Hannah, 3 Apr. 1690, wh. d. 1708; and he went back to Windsor, there d. 18 Aug. 1690. All the five s. were liv. 1706; but Comfort d. 1711. Benjamin, [[vol. 3, p. 179]] Joseph, Consider, and John ea. had fam. at Westfield, but in 1719, a few yrs. bef. his d. Joseph rem. to Glastonbury. RICHARD, Boston, perhaps br. perhaps s. of Henry, m. Mary, d. of Simon Eyre the first, had only Martha, wh. it is said, m. John Ruggle, but wh. of the sev. bear. that name, or when the f. of this w. or her h. was b. is almost beyond guess.
SAMUEL, Dorchester, s. of Henry, a cooper, rem. early to Boston, and in the way of trade visit. Jamaica and other parts of the W. I. where the adventurous spirit was excited and schooled, perhaps by Sir Henry Morgan and associate buccaneers, the result of wh. was, his bring. home to Boston two prizes from some unment. enemy. An explanat. of this may be, that the prizes (wh. were command. by Dutchmen) had been engag. in irreg. or piratical business. He m. Ann, eldest d. of the first Isaac Addington, and sis. of the Hon. Isaac, had Samuel, b. 18 Apr. 1671; Rebecca, 1673; and Mary. He was a capt. in Philip's war, showed gallant spirit, had great success in destroy. the Ind. by some was thot. to take too great delight in that exercise, and d. Jan. 1680. The s. d. young, and the wid. in 1684 contemplat. m. with Nehemiah Pierce, made deed of trust in favor of the ds. of wh. Rebecca m. 22 Jan. 1695, James Townsend, and Mary m. William Webster of Boston.
THOMAS, Dorchester, s. of the first John, m. 28 Oct. 1658, Mary, d. of Thomas Lawrence of Hingham, had prob. that John, wh. the rec. says d. 27 Oct. 1661, unless Increase were earlier; Mary, b. 31 Dec. 1660, d. 4 Dec. next yr.; Thomas, 12 Mar. 1667, wh. d. 12 Apr. 1749; Elizabeth 19 Feb. 1669; Unite, 5 May 1671, wh. was a soldier in Withington's comp. for the crusade against Quebec 1690; Ebenezer, 4 Sept. 1673; John, 9 Apr. 1676; Nathaniel, 28 Oct. 1678; and Joseph, 17 Apr. 1681; and d. 22 Oct. 1706. His will of 4 Oct. preced. names Increase, s. of his eldest dec. s. Increase. The wid. a. Apr. 1723. The name was spell. with many variat. as Mawdesly, Modesly, Madesly, but long has been fixed at Moseley, yet liable to be much mistak. as in Geneal. Reg. VI. 268, print. Moreley.
MAULE, or MAULD, EDWARD, Salem, d. 15 Nov. 1686. THOMAS, Salem 1669, a shopkeep. from Eng. came, he says in his book, via Barbadoes, was whip. for ill words, being Quaker, in May of that yr. m. 22 July 1670, Naomi Lindsay; perhaps as sec. w. had Mary, d. of George Keyser of the same, and in 1695 punish. again, for "Truth held forth, &c." Still, he show. great fondness for Salem, and in his will, a. 1723, left a bequest to its use, of wh. part was to be applied to support the writing-school. He had Susanna, b. 15 Sept. 1671; Elizabeth 11 Sept. 1673; Deliverance, 21 Oct. 1675, d. next yr.; Sarah, 17 Sept. 1677; Margaret, 20 Mar. 1680; Pelatiah, 10 May 1682; beside s.

ELIAS, Charlestown 1632, was of the ch. in Feb. of next yr. and freem. 11 June, liv. at Winnesemet, then pt. [[vol. 3, p. 180]]of Boston, now Chelsea, m. Ann, d. of a wid. Elizabeth Harris, wh. bec. the w. of deac. William Stetson, had John, b. 13, bapt. 27 Feb. 1636; Abigail, 10, bapt. 14 Aug. 1637; Elizabeth 2 June 1639, d. young, prob.; Sarah, 20 Feb. 1641, d. young perhaps; Elias, 17 Mar. 1644; Peter; Mary; Ruth; Paul, 10 June 1657; and Rebecca, 1 Jan. 1660; was of ar. co. 1654, and d. a. 1684. His will, of 19 Oct. 1681, pro. 6 Nov. 1684, provides for w. s. Elias, Peter, Paul, gr.s. Jotham, s. of s. John, wh. therefore, I presume, was d.; James, s. of s. Peter, wh. was prob. d.; and ds. Abigail, wh. had m. 4 June 1655, Matthew Clark; Sarah Walton; Mary Way; Ruth Smith; and Rebecca Thomas; beside f.-inlaw deac. Stetson, and Ruth Johnson, then liv. with testator, ch. of his d. Elizabeth wh. m. 15 Oct. 1656, John Johnson, wh. had rem. to Haverhill; and nam. Elias and Paul excors. ELIAS, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 8 Dec. 1669, Margaret Sherwood, wh. join. the ch. of Charlestown in Aug. 1675, wh. may rend. it prob. that he liv. on the est. of his f. or near it, had Elias, b. 4 Nov. 1670; Margaret, and Elizabeth bapt. 22 Aug. 1673; Abigail, 24 Sept. 1676; Samuel, 14 Aug. 1687; and was freem. 1690.
JOHN, Dorchester, came in the Mary and John, 1630, from Plymouth, with collea. Warham, desir. to be adm. freem. 19 Oct. and is first on the list of those wh. took the o. 18 May 1631, d. 3 Feb. 1636, while prepar. to accomp. his friends, wh. rem. to Windsor, perhaps, tho. Blake's Ann. say he would have contin. with Mather. He was in 60th yr. and much do I regret the ill success of inq. for his place of educ. or any acco. of his early days. All that we get from the veracious annals of Clap, wh. was by his f. commit. to the care of M. when the youth had leave to come to N. E. is, that he liv. 40 miles off. On what author. he is said to have d. at Boston, I kn. not. JOHN, Boston, possib. B. of the preced. as Farmer thot. but to me it seems very improb. by w. Jane had John, b. 18, bapt. with his sis. Jane or his mo. 30 Apr. 1653: and Dorothy, 23, bapt. 28 Jan. 1655. Perhaps his w. d. soon aft. as well as s. John, and by sec. w. Rebecca he had John, again, 28 July 1662.
JOHN, Boton, S. of Elias the first, m. 9 Apr. 1656, Catharine Skipper, had Jotham, b. 30 Mar. 1660; Elizabeth 17 Oct. 1662; Sarah, 20 June 1665; Ann, 21 Sept. 1671; Skipper, 4 May 1674; and Catharine, 18 Sept. 1676. When he d. is not told; but his wid. I presume, m. 8 Sept. 1680, John Johnson. MOSES, Salem, perhaps br. of the first Elias, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, tho. Felt ins. his name with w. in the list of ch. memb. under 1637, and so he must believe tbat he had been accept. in ano. town, had Rebecca, bapt. 7 Aug. 1639; Mary, 14 Feb. 1641, d. at 15 yrs.; Abigail, 12 Jan. 1645; Elizabeth 3 Dec. 1646, d. soon; Samuel, 19 Dec. 1647; Elizabeth again, 30 Sept. 1649, wh. m. 6 Apr. 1665, Nathaniel Grafton; Remember, 12 Sept. 1652; Mary, again, 6 Sept. 1657; [[vol. 3, p. 181]] and a s. wh. name is not in the rec. 20 Mar. 1663; beside Sarah, wh. is not found in the rec.
He liv. on Marblehead side, was one of the found. of the ch. 24 May 1684, and d. 28 Jan. 1686, aged 76, wh. date, Farmer says, Dana mistook. His w. Remember, d. of famous Isaac Allerton (but in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 270, she is call. Sarah, and possib. he had both to w. tho. it seems not prob.) d. aft. 1652, and he m. 22 Oct. 1656, Eunice, wid. of Thomas Roberts. His d. Rebecca m. 3 June 1658, John Hawkes of Lynn, and d. soon aft. b. of s. Moses, next yr. His will, pro. 30 Mar. 1686, names w. and Moses, the only surv. ch. of his d. Rebecca; four ch. of his dec. d. Abigail, viz.: Samuel Ward, Abigail Hinds, Mary Dollabar, and Martha Ward; and four liv. ds. viz.: Elizabeth Skinner; Remember Woodman; Mary, w. of Archibald Ferguson; and Sarah, w. of John Norman. PAUL, Boston, s. of the first Elias, m. Jemima, d. of lieut. John Smith, had Moses, b. 8 Feb. bapt. at Charlestown, 11 Sept. 1681; Jotham, 28 Oct. 1683; John, 14 Aug. 1687, one yr. old. PETER, Boston, elder br. of the preced. m. Martha, d. of Robert Bradford, had Martha, b. 8 Feb. 1671; and James.
SAMUEL, Boston, found here on Noddle's isl. by the Mass. comp. in 1630, hav. built a little fort with four small pieces of artil. so that we may be sure he was here in 1629, perhaps came in 1628, too late for liability to expense of the expedit. of Endicott against Morton. He desir. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, into the comp. but did not take the freeman's o. until 2 Oct. 1632. Against all probabil. he is call. s. of Rev. John by a writer of more animation than exactness, in Hist. of E. Boston; and even the careful Hist. of Dorchester, 404, confident. says the same. For his habit of hospitality, he was requir. in the spring of 1635, to change his resid. and move to the peninsula, but that tyranny was not enforced, and in the autumn of the same yr. he went to Virg. to buy corn, was absent almost a yr. He was one of the king's Commissrs. 1665, and in a depon. 9 Dec. 1665, sw. he was 63 yrs. old. Of his fam. only w. Amias, d. Mary, and s. Nathaniel, and Samuel are kn. Nathaniel, wh. was a merch. in a conveyance by his f. and mo. 1650, of the isl. to some creditors, is styled heir of Noddle's isl. and he join. in the security. But we never hear more of him. Mary m. 8 Feb. 1656, John Palsgrave, and next, 20 Sept. 1660, Francis Hooke. She, in a petitn. to Andros, a few wks. bef. his overthrow, tells a strange story a. her elder br. defraud. his f. of the title to Noddle's isl. wh. had above seventeen yrs. been own. by Col. Samuel Shrimpton, under sale from Sir Thomas Temple. It may be, that, as Shrimpton was oppos. to Sir Edmund A. tho. one of his council, that this was a contrivance to get rid of him. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 334.
SAMUEL, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 4 Dec. 1660, Rebecca, d. of Rev. John Wheelwright of Wells, had Mary, b. 2 Oct. 1661, and Hannah, [[vol. 3, p. 182]] 25 Oct. 1663; and he d. 10 Mar. 1664, and some unusual proceed. in few days by creditors that the "est. be not conceal. or convey. away " may be seen in Col. Rec. IV. part II. 145, and Geneal. Reg. XlI. 165. His br.-in-law Francis Hooke was appoint. admor. 1666, in Maine. So that Eliot, in Biog. Dict. mistook, saying he was the last nam. of four Royal commissnrs. in the Warrant of 25 Apr. 1664 to hear all complaints and settle every thing in the Col. of N. E. respective of the doings under wh. most copious details are in Hutch. I.229-57. Strange. is he miscall. s. of the Rev. John in Josselyn, 252. His wid. m. 12 Mar. 1672, William Bradbury.
But ano. SAMUEL of Boston, wh. by w. Martha had Samuel, b. 16 Mar. 1671, may have been s. of John, tho. it is very improb. as the Dorchester min. is never report. to have had any s. and he, I infer from both Moses and Samuel sign. 1668 the petitn. from Marblehead against imposts, was, perhaps, s. of Moses, and of a differ. tribe from the royal commissnr.
MAWER, WILLIAM, Boston 1636, liv. at Mount Wollaston, but rem. I think, bef. 1640.
MAWNEY, MOSES, Narraganset, a Huguenot, wh. escap. from France, soon aft. 1685, and as Potter in his Hist. tells, sat down in that part now East Greenwich, prob. bring. w. and ch. of wh. two are nam. Peter and Mary. Mary m. in New York. PETER, Providence, of the preced. m. Mary, d. of the sec. Pardon Tillinghast, had, as we learn from the will of their gr.f. without any indicat. of order, Sarah, Amey, Lydia, Mary, John, b. Aug. 1718, and Peter. By a sec. w. whose name Potter has not giv. he says there were three, perhaps nam. Elizabeth Mercy, and Pardon, but the want of precision is unavoid. The name is one of the perversions that the Huguenots suffer. in change of their alleg. since in France it was spell. Le Moine.
MAWRY, MOURIE, MOREY, or MOWRY, ROGER, Salem, freem. 18 May 1631, serv. as neatherd for the town 1637; may have had w. Elizabeth in 1641, but in few yrs. rem. to Providence, and was among the list of freem. there 1665, when he kept an inn, and was rep. 1658.

JOHN, Salisbury 1652, was of Gloucesteir 1679; but this may be the Mayfield of Lynn in Felt's list, Geneal. Reg. V. 339, wh. m. Rebecea Armitage. See that. JOHN, Salisbury, by w. Elizabeth had John, b. 23 Oct. 1680; Timothy, Oct. 1682; [[vol. 3, p. 183]] Mary, 10 Jan. 1685; Margery, 5 Nov. 1686; Nathaniel, 1 Mar. 1689; Joseph, 4 Mar. 1692; Elizabeth 18 Jan. 1695; and William, 4 Sept. 1699; and d. sudden. 10 Dec. 1703. SAMUEL, Dorchester, m. Mary, d. of Thomas Davenport, had John; Ebenezer, b. 20 Nov. 1675; Mary; and Mehitable. His wid. Mary d. 1707.
