|JOHN, Stamford 1662, s. of John of the same, had a ch. b. that yr and was grant. ld. 1667, propos. for freem. 1669, and in 1687 was rated for good est. But in 1697 he with his brs. Jonathan and Joseph, are enum. in the patentof Bedford, set off from S. to the N. Y. jurisdict. by the new line of boundary, wh. in 1701, left no Miller in S. Jonathan had been in 1672 a resid. of S. A John, who came passeng. in the Speedwell, from London, 1656, aged 24, may have been that gent. of Yarmouth with those yrs. he precise. agrees or the inhab. of Cape Porpus 1680, wh. was rep. in 1685, at that Court held under auth. of Mass. by Presid. Danforth. JOHN, Springfield, freem. 1690. JOHN, Yarmouth, s. of John of the same, gr.s. of Rev. John, m. 23 Jan. 1707, Thankful Howes. JONATHAN, Springfield 1678. JOSEPH, came in the Hopewell, capt. Babb, from London, aged 15, perhaps s. of some one thath has come bef. may have been of Dover 1647, and may be the same as the next.
JOSEPH, Newbury, had w. Mary, who, Coffin says, had been wid. of capt. John Cutting, and d. 6 Mar. 1663, but in ano. place, 6 May 1664; and he d. 21 July 1681. JOSEPH, Marlborough, freem. 1685, may be the man of Cambridge, who m. Mary, only d. of Water Pope had Thomas b. 9 Apr. 1675; Samuel 24 Sept. 1678; and prob. Joseeph of Newton, wh. d. 1711; and Jane, wh. d. 1719. He d. 1697, and his wid. d. 1711. Perhaps he was s. of Richard. JOSIAH, Yarmouth, s. of the sec. John of the same, d. 15 Apr. 1729, and his wid. Mary d. at Pembroke, 15 Feb. 1772, "aged 94 yrs. wanting a few days," says fam. rep prob. with some exagger. LAZARUS, Springfield, s. of Obadiah, took o. of alleg. 1678, as did at the same time, OBADIAH, and OBADIAH jr. Of the former, were Lazarus, b. 1655; Obadiah, 1658; and Joanna, 1659; his w. Joanna d. E. NICHOLAS, Plymouth, whose will of 24 Oct. 1665 bears the name Hodges, also, may therefore be the same person borne on the list of those able to bear arms, 1643. PAUL, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Sarah, b. 21 Feb. 1692; and he liv. not long aft.
RICHARD, Charlestown, came, perhaps, in 1637 and had gr. of a lot, it is said, in 1638, but as neither Frothingham, in the Hist. of the town, nor Budington, in that of the. ch. ment. him, we may suppose he d. early. Elinor, who join. the ch. 4 Nov. 1643, may have been his w. or wid. She m. Henry Herbert and d. 17 Nov. 1667; and her d. Hannah M. m. 17 June 1663, Nathaniel [[vol. 3, p. 211]] Dade, and aft. his d. m. 4 Oct. 1667, John Edmands, and next, m. 22 May 1684, deac. Aaron Ludkin, long outliv. him, and d. 13 Dec. 1717. RICHARD, Kittery, had Samuel, Martha, and Mary; was d. bef. June 1694; and his wid. Grace m. Christopher Benfield. Mary m. Ephraim Wentworth. But she may, as also the br. and sis. belong to Ephraim, as claim. by the Wentworths.
ROBERT, a soldier under capt. Turner 1676, prob. present in the Falls fight, may have come from Rehoboth, certain. from some E. part. At R. he had Solomon, b. 6 Mar. 1674; Mary, 14 June 1680. ROBERT, Boston, by w. Lydia, had Lydia, b. 25 Jan. 1666; is possib. the same as the preced. SAMUEL, Springfield, freem. 1690. SAMUEL, Rehoboth, m. 20 July 1682 Esther Bowen, had Esther, b. 4 Apr. foll. and, perhaps, he had sec. w. Rebecca, d. of Joseph Belcher. SAMUEL, Kittery, s. of Richard, or Ephraim. SYDRACH, Salem 1629, a cooper, prob. same with Higginson. THOMAS, Rowley 1646, had license to sell wines next yr. may have rem. to Middletown. THOMAS, Boston, planter, had est. of a. three acres, adjoin. the town common, sold in 1668, to Thomas Deane.
THOMAS, Springfield, m. 1649, Sarah, d. of Thomas Marshfield, had Sarah, b. 1650; Thomas, 1653; Samuel, John, 1657; Joseph, 1659, d. soon; Josiah, 1660; Deborah, 1662; Martha, 1664, d. soon; Martha, again, 1665; Ebenezer, 1667; Mehitable, 1669; Joseph, again, 1671; and Experience, a d. 1673; and he was k. by the Ind. Sept. 1675, as may have been his s. John next yr. in the gr. Falls fight. Five ds. and four s. were m. at S. THOMAS, Middletown, an early sett. from Rowley, by w. Isabel, wh. d. 1666, had Ann, that m. a. 1653, Nathaniel Bacon; and when above 56 yrs. old, took, 6 June, 1666, sec. w. Sarah, d. of Samuel Nettleton, of Branford, a girl prob. not older than his d. Ann; had Thomas, b. 6 May, 1666, w. date proves that some interfer. of a judicial kind had been invok. or was aft.; Samuel, 1 Apr. 1668; Joseph, 21 Aug. 1670; Benjamin, 10 or 20 July, 1672; John, 10 Mar. 1674, Margaret, 1 Sept. 1676; Sarah, 7 Jan. 1679; and Mehitable, posthum. 28 Mar. 1681. He d. 14 Aug. 1680, and in his will, three days bef. calls hims. above 70. In the rec. Sept. foll. these ch. on the div. of est. are nam. Thomas, aged 14; Samuel, 12; Joseph, 10; Benjamin, 8; Margaret, 4; and Sarah, 1. His wid. m. a Harris, perhaps Thomas; and Sarah m. Smith Johnson of Woodstock.
THOMAS, Springfield, s. of Thomas of the same, was in the Falls figbt 1676, m. Dec. 1681, Rebecca Leonard, d. of John, had Thomas and Rebecca, and d. 1690. THOMAS, Middletown, eldest s. of Thomas of the same, m. 1688, Elizabeth Turner, perhaps d. of Edward of the same, had Thomas, b. 1692; Abigail, 1694; and Elizabeth 1695. His w. d. this yr. and he m. 1696, Mary Rowell, had Mary, 1697, wh. d. at 16 yrs.; Stephen, 1699; James, 1700; Eiiz. 1702; Eunice, 1704; Patience 1707; and Deborah, 1708, wh. d. at 5 yrs.; and he d. 24 Sept. 1727. Farmer had giv. one of this baptismal name at Dorchester, [[vol. 3, p. 212]] but I am confident that it was a mistak. by his informer for Millet.
WILLIAM, Ipswich 1648, prob. rem. with earliest sett. to Northampton, by w. Patience had Mary; Rebecca, d. young; Patience, b. 15 Sept. 1657; William, 3O Nov. 1668, Feb. 1662; Ebenezer, 7 June 1664; Mehitable, 10 July 1666; Thankful, 25 Apr. 1669; and Abraham, 20 Jan. 1672, was freem. 1690; and d. 15 July 1690. His will was of 1668, and his wid. d. 16 Mar. 1716, quite aged. Mercy m. 1687, John Fowler of Westfield, WILLIAM, Wethersfield, E. side of the riv. wh. bec. Glastonbury, s. of the preced. was a tanner, had decent est. of £348. and d. 1705, leav. William, aged 11; John, 4; Jonathan, 1; and three ds. of wh. with ret. of the inv. the names and ages appear, Mary, 8; Martha, 7; and Sarah, 6; all 1iv. in 1721, to claim portion as heirs of their gr.f. of cert. wild lds. in Northfield. Chapin, 192, has a slight error; in giv. him a br. John. For his w.'s name, that is not ment. at Glastonbury, we may succeed in the rec. of Saybrook, by find. that he m. 19 Apr. 1693, Mary Bushnell, I suppose d. of John, and there had William, b. 9 Feb. foll. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. ten at Yale, and fifteen at other N. E. coll.
MILLERD, MILLARD, or MILWARD, BENJAMIN, JOSEPH, ROBERT, and SAMUEL, were of Rehoboth 1690. THOMAS, Gloucester, a fisherman, or mariner, was selectman 1642, rem. to Newbury, had Ann, perhaps b. there in Nov. of that yr.; Rebecca; and Elizabeth aft. but did not sell his est. at G. bef. 1652. He made his will 30 Aug. 1653, and d. 2 days aft. at Boston. I think his d. Rebecca m. 27 May 1656, at Boston, Thomas Thorpe. Coffin supposes he was that mate of the Hector, ment. in Winthrop I. 187; but I doubt it. W. Ann, and ch. Rebecca and Elizabeth under 18 yrs. are ment. in the will.
MILLET, JOHN, Gloucester, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 3 July 1663, Sarah Leach, had John, b. 23 Oct. 1665, d. soon; Hannah, 9 Mar. 1667; John, again, 22 Apr. 1669; Thomas, 23 Nov. 1671; Sarah, 1 July 1674, d. next yr. Andrew, 9 May 1676, d. in few days; and Elizabeth 24 Oct. 1677; and he d. 3 Nov. 1678, leav. wid. Sarah. NATHANIEL, Gloucester, br. of the preced. m. 3 May 1670, Ann, d. of Andrew Lester, had Mary, b. 29 June 1671, d. young; Daniel, 31 July 1673, d. next day; Thomas, 9 Mar. 1675; Nathaniel, 2 Mar. 1677; Abigail, 12 Oct. 1679; Andrew, 6 July 1681; beside 5 more, of wh. one was Nathan, b. 1685. His w. d. 9 Mar. 1718, and he d. 7 Nov. 1719. RICHARD, prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop but no more of him is kn. than that he req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, when his name is spelled Myllett, and was sw. freem. 11 June 1633.
THOMAS, Dorchester, came in the Elizabeth, from London, 1635, aged 30, with w. Mary, 29, and ch.Thomas, 2; had here, John, 8 July 1638; Jonathan, 27 July 1638, d. next mo.; Mary, 21 Aug. 1639; and Mehitable, 14 Mar. 1642; Nathaniel, 1647; perhaps also [[vol. 3, p. 213]] Bethia, wh. m. 3 Aug. 1666, Moses Eyres or Ayres (as Mr. Drake, in Geneal. Reg. V. 402, says), and d. 15 Apr. 1669. He was freem. 17 May 1637, and his w. m. in Eng. was d. of John Greenoway. In 1642 he rem. to Gloucester, and aft. sev. yrs. to Brookfield, there d. 1676, as did his wid. 1682. Farmer had. giv. the two s. b. at D. to a suppositit. Miller; but more curious was the error of Dagget (who usually is very scrupulous in correctness), for his Hist. of Attleborough gives all the childr. of Millet from our rec. to Willett, the capt. of Rehoboth, who was first mayor of New York, aft. its conq. As the mistake had not then been detected, Bliss foll. it in his Hist. of Rohoboth. THOMAS, Gloucester, s. of the preced. m. 21 May 1655, Mary, d. of Sylvester Eveleth, wh. d. 2 July 1687, perhaps without hav. ch. and he next m. Abigail, wid. of Isaac Eveleth, d. of John Coit, and d. 18 June 1707.
MILLING, SIMON, Watertown, an old man, had five ch. Simon, Richard, Mary, James, and John, all bapt. Dec. 1686; but it is not told who was their mo. Perhaps she was d. and he had late. rem. thither, wh. conjeet. may be favor. by the ment. of bapt. of a young man, Thomas M. on 17 Oct. preced. Rare will be the occur. of such a name.
MILLINGTON, JOHN, Windsor, m. 1668, Sarah Smith, rem. to Suffield, there had John, b. 1675; Henry, 1679; prob. others. His s. John was at Coventry 1716 and aft.
MILLS, BENJAMIN, Dedham 1677, had liv. there, I suppose, more than 30 yrs. but nothing definite can be found. EDWARD, Boston, adm. to be inhab. 1645. EDWARD, Dorchester, s. of. John of Braintree, m. Mehitable, d. of Stephen Minot, wid. of the younger Henry Messinger, wh. d. 16 Aug. 1690, aged 25 had Stephen. He taught the sch. in D. fr. 1687 to 92, and aft. a sch. in Boston, partly unde the patronage of the London Soc. for propagat. the Gospel, and d. 7 Nov. 1732. JAMES, Lynn, may have come from Southold, L. I. where in 1663, was one of this name, m. 1 Apr. 1671, Martha, d. of Hugh Alley, had Martha, b. 14 June 1672; James, 9 Sept. 1674, d. young; Sarah, 27 Feb. 1676; James, again, 11 Oct. 1678; and Dorothy, 21 Apr. 1681. Lewis calls him the first perman. inhab. at Nahant.
JOHN, Boston, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop for among the memb. of the first ch. his name is No. 33, and his w. Susanna next, desir. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and was sw. 6 Mar. 1632. His ds. Joy, and Recompense, were bapt. in Oct. 1630, being the first on our ch. rec.; John, 3 June 1632; Jonathan, 30 Aug. 1635; and James, 3 June 1638. Vinton, 341, gives him, also, Susanna, b. in Eng. and Mary b. a. 1640, acc. Vinton; but I think she must be count. bef. 1630, and b. in Eng. He soon rem. to Braintree, and with w. was recom. 5 Dec. 1641, to the ch. there, was town clk. 1653. Susanna, his w. d. 10 Dec. 1675, in her 80th yr. He made his [[vol. 3, p. 214]] will 12 Jan. 1678, pro. 10 Sept. foll in wh. he names ds. Mary Hawkins and Susanna Dawes, and his only s. John is charged to bring up one of his s. unto learning, that he may be fit for the min. wh. was, he says, the employm. of my predecess. to 3d if not 4th generat. The gr.s. Edward, H. C. 1685, seems not to have obeyed the will of his ancest. tho. he liv. to 1732; but perhaps the fourth generat. was more regardful, at least Jonathan, H. C. 1723, was a min.
JOHN, Searborough, had John, James, Sarah, and Mary, who were all charg. with neglect of public worship; and Sarah's defence subject. her to stripes. JOHN, Braintree, s. of the first John, m. 26 Apr. 1653, Elizabeth Shove, prob. sis. of Rev. George, who d. 18 Aug. 1711, in 81st yr. had Elizabeth b. 5 Mar. or 1 July (as the first numeral is count. for mo. or for day) by differ. read. 1654; Sarah, 9 June 1656, John, 13 Apr. 1660; Jonathan, 9 Sept. 1662; Edward, 29 June 1665, H. C. 1685; Joanna or Susanna, 12 Mar. 1668, d. next yr.; Mary, 1 Apr. 1670; Nathaniel, 22 Apr. 1672; and Susanna, 23 Sept. 1676. His s. John and Nathaniel liv. at B. and both had fams. There was a John Mills, hav. fam. at Dedham 1676, perhaps br. of Benjamin. JOHN, of Boston, whose will of 22 Oct. 1651 is abstr. in Geneal. Reg. lV. 28, tho. his inv. shows a good amount of prop. was prob. only a transient trader; at least, he names no w. or ch. but aft. a few trifling gifts, directs the bulk of the est. to go to his friends in the Canaries. JOHN, Simsbury, s. of Simon the sec. by w. Sarah had John, b. a. 1690; Joseph, and Benjamin, a 1694; and Sarah, a. 1696; and he d. 11 Mar. 1698. JOSEPH, Kittery, call. a planter.
PETER, Windsor, in a tradit. of very light esteem, prob. a modern excercise of it, said to have come from Holland, a tailor, with the name of Van Molyn (turn. into Eng. Mills), when relations betw. the two nations had long been hostile, strange. said to have been b. so late as 1666, m. bef. 1672, Dorcas, d. of Edward Messenger, wh. d. 18 May, 1688, had Peter, and prob. other ch. perhaps Samuel, certain. Ebenezer, wh. d. 8 Feb. 1687; Return, d. 12 July 1689; and Eleazer, d. 1698, all prob. young, but date of b. of neither is seen, and m. 10 Dec. 1691, a sec. w. Jane Warren, or Fannin, Hartford, as ano. statem. is; and he d. 12 Apr. 1702. Peter, Windsor, s. of the preced. m. 21 July 1692, Joan Porter, had Pelathia, b. 27 Apr. 1693, wh. was a lawyer; Gideon, 3 Feb. 1695, d. soon; Jedeaiah, 23 May 1697, Y. C. 1722; Peter, 22 Apr. 1700, d. soon, and Peter, again, 12 Apr. 1701; Ann, 1703; John, 1706; David, 1709; Ebenezer, 1712; and Gideon, again, 15 Aug. 1715, Y. C. 1737. But Stiles omits, 704, the two last, as well as Ann, and varies in John and David.
RICHARD, Stratford, and aft. 1653, at Stamford, rem. 1663 to West Chester. ROBERT, Kittery, perhaps br. of Joseph, d. 1647, leav. w. Dorothy, wh. m. John Harker of York, and four ch. SAMUEL, Windsor, m. 18 Oct. 1639, w. Joanna, wh. d. 5 July 1639, and he d. 19 [[vol. 3, p. 215]] May 1661. But I fear the same incid. may be ascrib. to Simon or Simeon by easy confus. of names. SAMUEL, Dedham 1642, had w. Frances, and ch. Samuel, bapt. 29 Mar. 1646, d. next mo.; Benjamin, 13 Apr. 1651; Elizabeth 5 Dec. 1632; and Rebecca, 17 May 1657; yet the parents of this last, not being ment. at the time, on ch. rec. she may have been d. of Benjamin Miles, whose surname is not unfrequent. giv. as MILLS.
SAMUEL, Stratford 1668, rem. to L. I. and d. 1685, at Southhampton. SIMON, Windsor 1639, m. that yr. prob. sec. w. Joan, wh. d. childless, July 1659. Date of his d. is unkn. SIMON, Windsor, perhaps s. of the preced. b. in Eng. tho. he may possib. be the same, but not likely, m. 23 Feb. 1660, Mary, d. of William Buell, had Samnel and Simon, tw. b. 23 Apr. 1661, both d. next mo. Mary, 8 Dec. 1662; Hannah, 1665; Simon, again, 1 May 1667; John, 2 Jan. 1669; Sarah, 16 Sept. 1670; rem. to Simsbury, and had Abigail, 1672; Elizabeth 1674, Prudence, 1676; and Simon, again, 1678. The first two and the fourth ch. d. bef. him, and he d. 6 July, 1683. Both the s. liv. at Simsbury. THOMAS, Wells, freem. 1653, was constab1e 1664. Three of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. eighteen at Yale, and two at other N. E. coll.
MILNER, MICHAEL, Lynn, came in the James, from London, 1635, aged 23, rem. to L.I. 1640, says Lewis.

MINGO, Robert, Newbury, w. Elizabeth had Thomas, b. 2 June 1689; and Robert, 11 Oct. 1697. Coffin affords no derivat. of this person, and I indulge the conject. that the name is identic. with the last preced. and possib. that man was f. of this.
MINOR, or MINER, CLEMENT, New London 1666, fourth s. of Thomas, adm. freem. that yr. m. 1662, Frances, wid. of young Isaac Willey, had Mary, b. 19 Jan. 1665; Joseph, 6 Aug. 1666; Clement 6 Oct. 1668; William, 6 Nov. 1670; and Ann, 30 Nov. 1672; his w. d. 6 Jan. foll. and he m. Martha, d. of William Wellman, had Phebe, 13 Apr. 1679. This sec. w. d. 5 July 1681, and he had third w. Joanna, wh. d. Oct. 1700. He was a deac. and very near the same time with his last w. EPHRAIM, Stonington 1666, fifth s. of Thomas, was one of the found. of the ch. in June 1674, m. 20 June of that yr. Hannah, d. of James Avery, had Ephraim, b. 22 June 1668; Thomas, 17 Dec. 1669, d. young; Hannah, 20 Apr. 1671; Rebecca, Sept. 1672; Elizabeth Apr. 1674, d. young; Samuel, Dec. 1676, d. young; Deborah, 13 Apr. 1677, unless the pub. fam. geneal. has a wrong fig. d. young; Deborah, again, Apr. 1679; Samuel, again, Aug. 1681; James, Nov. 1682; Grace, Sept. 1683; and John, Apr. 1685; was freem. 1674 and was rep. 1676, but the d. of his dec. is not told.
JOHN, Stratford 1659, eldest s. of Thomas of [[vol. 3, p. 216]] New London; wh. the Commissnrs. of the Unit. Col. of N. E. desir. in 1654, to have qualif. at Eastford to be an instruct. of the natives, was town clk. of S. and rep. 1667 and 76, and of the new town of Woodbury very many yrs; m. 19 Oct. 1658, Elizabeth d. of Richard Booth, had John, b. 9 Sept. 1659; Thomas, 29 May 1662; Hannah, 2 Aug. 1664; Elizabeth 16 Jan. 1667; Grace, 20 Sept. 1670; Joseph, 4 Mar. 1673; Ephraim, 24 Oct. 1675; Sarah, 19 June 1678; Abigail, 6 Feb. 1681; and Joanna, bapt. July 1683; and he d. 17 Sept. 1719 but the wid. liv. to 24 Oct. 1732, prob. 92 or 3 yrs.
JOSEPH, Stonington, br. of Ephriam, freem. 1666, m. 23 Oct. 1668, Mary, d. of James Avery, by wh. he had eight ch. and one more by sec. w. Bridget, wid. of William Thompson. They were Joseph, b. 19 Sept. 1669; Mary, 6 Oct. 1671; Benjamin, 25 June 1676; Deborah, and Sarah, perhaps tw. bapt. 30 Mar. 1679; Christopher; Joanna; Prudence; and Bridget; but I doubt sev. dates of the fam. geneal. and I gain neither dates of m. nor d. of sec. w. nor of his d. Prob. he and John were of Woodbury 1690. MANASSEH, New London, 1671, seventh s. of Thomas of the same, said to be the first male white, b. in that town, rem. to Stonington, m. 26 Sept. 1670, Lydia Moore, whose f. is not kn. had Hannah, b. 3 Nov. 1677; and Thomas, 1683, was deac. and d. 29 Apr. 1728, aged 81. SAMUEL, youngest s. of Thomas, m. 1681, Mary Lord, and d. next yr. THOMAS, Charlestown, 1632, s. of William of Chew Magna, in Co. Somerset, one of the found. of the ch. in Frothingham, 70, as well as Budington, 184, said to be dism. for that purpose from Boston ch. 14 Oct. of that yr. but tho. the rec. at C. supports them, his name is not in the list of Boston mem. in the surv. copy of our first ch.; freem. 4 Mar. 1634, rem. to Saybrook, thence to New London soon aft. 1645, d. m. 23 Apr. 1634, Grace, eldest d. of Walter Palmer, had sev. ch. but not all, bef. rem. They were John, bapt. 30 Aug. 1635; Thomas, b. 1638, d. young; Clement, b. 27 Apr. 1642; Manasseh, 1647; Ephraim, 1642; Joseph, 1636; Judah, 1644; Samuel, 1652; Ann, 1649; Elizabeth 1653, d. young; Eunice, if the true name be not Hannah; and Mary, 1655. He was a very valua. man, rep. 1650 and 1, perhaps 65, 70, and 3, for Stonington, but I doubt, some of the latter honors belong to his s. of the same name, and prob. Hinman, who makes him town clk. of Woodbury for 30 yrs. from 1674, makes the same mistake in pp. 54, 153, and 222.
The f. was the oldest gr.stone at Stonington shows, d. 23 Oct. 1690, aged 83; and his w. d. the same yr. Hannah, the only d. that liv. to mid. age, m. 1677, Thomas Avery. A diary kept by him for sev. yrs. furnish. some good informat. Sometimes in Conn. this name is Myner; and in 1834 nine of the fam. had been gr. at Yale.
