Ann Osborne had Rebecca, b. 20 June 1682; John, 8 Oct. 1684; James; Eleazer; Adonijah; and Ann. His wid. d. 10 Dec. 1726. ISAAC, Roxbury, eldest s. of Edward the first, was a soldier in Johnson's comp. in the gr. Narraganset fight, m. 2 Mar. 1680, Hannah, d. of John Mayo, had prob. no ch. perhaps rem. to Woodstock, as he was admor. on est. of his. but came back to R. where his w. d. 5 Nov. 1701; and he m. 3 Nov. 1702, Mary, wid. of Ebenezer Pierpont and d. 21 Oct. 1715.
JOHN, Hartford 1640, d. bef. Mar. 1669, in his will names ch. John, Joshua and Mary. His wid. Martha m. Roger Jepson of Saybrook; and d. Mary m. 25 Nov. 1680, John Tillosston of S.

He m. 12 [[vol. 3, p. 236]] Aug. 1669, Hannah Bishop, and by this third w. had Mary, 19 June 1670, d. soon; Hannah, 10 Aug. 1671, Mary, again, 9 Sept. 1673; Elizabeth 1675; Thomas, 26 Apr. 1679, d. young; Abigail, 22 Aug. 1683; and Desire, 25 Mar. 1687.

RICE, Charlestown, by w. Esther had Hannah, bapt. 29 Nov. 1634; and Esther, b. 6, bapt. 14 Mar. 1641, perhaps more, and d. 5 Apr. 1647. But the name appears Morus in Geneal. Reg.IX. 170. RICHARD, Boston 1630, came prob. in the fleet with Winthrop as he and w. Lenora were very early of the ch. Nos. 64 and 5, and he was made freem. 18 May 1631 with the title of serj. and so perhaps a hired officer, bec. lieut. at Roxbury soon aft. and was rep. 1635, ar. co. 1637, but favoring the cause of Rev. John Wheelwright, was disarm. and with that heresiarch went to Exeter, 1638. The name is first on our ch. rec. writ. Maurice, and when, 6 Jan. 1639, dismiss. was gr. to Wheelwright and eight others, includ. him, "unto the ch. of Christ. at the falls of Paschiataqua, if they be rightly gathered and ordered," the spelling is Morrys. It is wrong in Drake's diligent Hist. 224, as it was first in Belknap, wh. Farmer did not correct.
RICHARD, Portsmouth, R. I. 1643, then among the freem. 1655, seems to be the same as preced. ROBERT, Rehoboth 1640, d. bef. 1647. Baylies, II. 200, 203.

THOMAS, New Haven 1639, by w. Elizabeth had John; Hannah, b. 14 Mar. 1642, bapt. 18 June 1643; Elizabeth perhaps bapt. 10 Dec. foll.; John; Eleazer, bapt. 29 Oct. 1648; Thomas and Ephraim, tw. b. 3, bapt. 5 Oct. 1651, of wh. Ephraim d. next day, but Thomas liv. over 21 yrs.; and Joseph, b. 25 Mar. bapt. 25 May, 1656. His wid. Elizabeth d. 1681, and he d. 21 July 1673. His will, of 11 July preced. gives est. to the ds. and John, Eleazer, and Joseph, wh. were props. 1685. Hannah m. 1662, Thomas Lupton. THOMAS, Boston, of wh. no more is kn. than that he d. quite early, for his will was on p. 18 now missing of our first vol. of Pro. Rec. if we may trust the index. THOMAS, Casco 1652, perhaps next yr. at Dover.
WILLIAM, Portsmouth, R. I. 1655, was perhaps, br. of Richard, may have liv. at Westerly. WILLIAM, Charlestown, 1658, perhaps of Boston, there by w. Dorcas had William, b. 18 Dec. 1665, rem. prob. to Wethersfield, and was freem. of Conn. 1669, and d. 1697. [[vol. 3, p. 237]]

MORSE, ABRAHAM, Newbury, s. of Robert, b. perhaps in Eng. by his w. Elizabeth bef. he left Marlborough, in Wilts, if his f. may be presum. br. of Anthony, rem. it is said, to New Jersey. ANTHONY, Newbury, a shoemaker of Marlborough, Wiltsh. arr. at Boston, 3 June 1635, in the James from Southampton, said to have been b. 9 May 1606, freem. 25 May 1636, by w.

Genealog. adds Mary, prob. but I doubt; Coffin gives him also, Joseph, John, and Peter; yet he has confus. the marriages and deaths of f. and s. and has prob. done the same with ch. He was freem. 2 May 1636, had a sec. w. Ann, wh. d. 9 Mar. 1680, and he d. 12 Oct. 1686. Sarah m. 24 June 1663, Amos Stickney; and Esther m. 2 Feb. 1669, Robert Holmes.

His orig. parchm. deed, convey. with assent of w. Lydia, to John: Hull, part of his est. in M. 7 June 1666, was in my poss. and giv. to my friend Nathaniel I. Bowditch, Esq. and his last [[vol. 3, p. 238]] resid. was in Sherborn, where he d. 1688, and wid. d. 29 Jan. 1691, aged 70 at Sherborn.

JEREMIAH, Boston, s. of Samuel, it is said, b. in Eng. had Samuel, bapt. 29 Aug. 1647; and Jeremiah, 17 Dec. 1648; perhaps rem. to the E.

JOHN, Charlestown 1637, rem. to Dedham the same yr. next to Boston. JOHN, Boston, tailor, m. 24 Dec. 1652, Mary Jupe, niece of Robert Keayne, had Mary, b. 20 Apr. 1654; was prob. the freem. of 1654, and went [[vol. 3, p. 239]] home, Nov. 1654, and did not ret.
JOHN, Dedham, s. of Samuel went home and came back in the Speedwell, July 1656, aged 40; and was the person whose d. is ment. 26 May 1657. It has caus. some confus. and much uncert. that the John of Dedham and he of Boston, both tailors, should both have gone home so near. in the same yr. both die near the same time, but one [which?] return. to die on our side of the water; yet it may be overcome by aid of the wills. In that ship, at that time, came the first Quakers to our country. JOHN, Ipswich, s. of Joseph first of the same, by w. Dinah had Elizabeth b. 29 Mar. 1657, d. at 2 yrs.; and Mary, 15 Jan. 1661, wh. m. perhaps, John Shattuck; and d. 1697, leav. wid. Dinah. He was town clk. of Groton. JOHN, Watertown, sec. s. of sec.

Dr. Bond says she m. John Parkhurst, liv. about 70 yrs. and had s. and ds.; Isaac, 5 Jan. 1679, d. at 15 yrs.; Samuel, 21 June 1682, d. prob. bef. 20 yrs.; and Nathaniel, bapt. 29 Jan. 1688; was deac. 1697. His w. d. 16 Oct. 1690, and a third w. was Sarah. He d. 23 or 28 July 1702.
JOHN, Boston, s. of the first John, by w. Elizabeth d. of Zaccheus Bosworth, had Elizabeth b. 22 Jan. 1661; Ruth, 18 Dec. 1662, d. at 18 mos.; Hannah, Feb. 1665; Abigail, 30 Mar. 1667; Ruth, again, 13. Jan. 1669; Bethia, 13 or 15 Jan. 1671 John, 28 Aug. 1673; Samuel, 13 Nov. 1676, prob. d. soon; and Sarah, 24 Nov. 1677. He was freem. 1669, serv. as a commissary in Philip's war, and d. says the Genealog. 25 Oct. 1678, but in the Appendix makes erron. that event on the same day of next yr. leav. wid. Elizabeth who applied to governm. for compensat. on acco. of his serv. JONATHAN, Sherborn, s. of Daniel the first, m. 8 Sept. 1666, Mary Barber, perhaps d. of George, wh. d. 1700, had Jonathan, b. 11 July, 1667; Mary, Aug. 1670; Nathan, 3 Jan. 1673; Samuel, 10 Aug. 1676; Lydia, 9 May 1682; Elizabeth 10 Dec. 1684; and Ebenezer, 26 Sept. 1689; liv. at Medfield, was freem. 1677 or 72, and d. 30 Aug. 1727. JONATHAN, Watertown, s. of the sec. Joseph, m. 17 Oct. 1678, Abigail, youngest d. of William Shattuck the first, had Abigail, b. or 15 Dec. 1679; Hannah, 3 Sept. or Dec. 1682, Ruth, 15 Apr. 1684; and Jonathan, 23 Jan. posthum. for his f. d. 31 July preced. perhaps at Groton, where he was freem. 1672, of whose proprs. he was clk.

Jonathan, Nov. 1673, Mary, bapt. at N. 4 June 1676; and Jonathan, bapt. at N. 29 June 1681; was aft. of Middleborough, and one of the found. of first ch. there; a. July 1709.

JOSEPH, Dedham, s. of Samuel b. in Eng. came in the Increase, from London, 1635, aged 20, with f. and mo. m. 1 Sept. 1638, Hannah, or Ann Phillips of Watertown, perhaps sis. of Rev.

Dr. Bond adds Jonathan, without a date, and the assiduous genealogist of the name adds that he was b. a. 1680, while on the same page he makes the f. d. 1677 wh. is right, for the wid. m. 5 July 1678, John Fay, wherefore I doubt, unless the Morse genealog. be wrong here. That author makes the b. of the s. in the same yr. he tells me, wherein the f. d. 1667. JOSEPH, MedfieId, s. of John first of that name, m. 12 Nov. 1668, Priscilla Colburn, had John, b. 18 Aug. 1669, d. young; Joseph, 25 May 1671, or 10 Feb. 1672, H.

[[vol. 3, p. 241]]
and his wid. d. 4 Sept. 1727, d 67. JOSEPH, Newbury, s. of the first Anthony, w. Joanna had Hannah, b. 15 Feb. 1681; Joshua, 11 Apr. 1686;, d. in few wks.; and Anthony, 15 Apr. 1688. He d. 28 Mar. 1691, says Coffin; but the Geneal. wh. agrees with C. that his d. 10 Apr. 1691, gives him sec. w. Mary. JOSHUA, came to R. says the Geneal. and serv. as chaplain in King William's war with the French, had gr. the same name, wh. was a preach. NATHANIEL, Sheborn, s. of Daniel, first of the name, by w. Mary had Nathaniel, b. 1680, d. soon; Nathaniel, again, 1682; Joseph, 1683; Benjamin, 1684, prob. d. soon; Aaron, 5 Mar. 1686; Mary and Rachel, tw. 2 Apr. 1687; Ruth, 21 Oct. 1688; Dorothy, 1695 and Obadiah, 1698; was a deac. and d. 17 Oct. 1728. OBADIAH, Sherborn, eldest br. of the preced. freem. 1672 or being so ent. in ea. yr. m. Martha Johnson, had only Obadiah, wh. d. young, was first clk. of the town, and deac. d. 4 Mar. 1704, and his wid. d. 1714. An OBADIAH, among rem. 1674, is call. of Portsmouth in the rec. but I fear, he can have no more told of him, but that in Feb. 1690, with majority N. H. people, he desir. jurisdict. of Mass.
PETER, Newbury, br. of the first Anthony, prob. went with others to N. J. where they obtain. large gr. of ld. ROBERT, Boston, br. of the first Anthony, brot. from Eng. w. Elizabeth and prob. s. Abraham, had James, b. at B. 1644, rem. to Newbury, perhaps bef. his w. d. but more likely aft. m. 30 Oct. 1654, Ann Lewis, had Elizabeth b. 25 Sept. 1655, d. in 6 mos.; Robert, 1 Feb. 1657; Mary, 25 Feb. 1658, d. in 8 mos.; a d. 6 Dec. 1660, wh. liv. not to obt. a name; Lydia, 13 July 1662; and Sarah, 28 Apr. 1665, but Coffin makes it a yr. later; some time at Rowley, there, perhaps, had Peter, and at least rem. to N. J. SAMUEL, Dedham, f. of Daniel, came in the Increase, from London, 1635, aged 50, with w. Elizabeth 48, and s. Joseph, bef. ment. but how the other childr. came or when, is uncert.; freem. 8 Oct. 1640, says the Geneal. 20 June 1654; but either that date or one of his will is wrong, as pub. in Geneal. Reg. V. 299, where the test. is 2 Dec. 1654. Mr. Morse assures me, the true d. is 5 Dec. I presume the d. of his s. Joseph was intend. for June. Farmer says he d. 3 days aft. and agrees with town rec. therein. It gives w. Elizabeth all his est. but aft. her life to be div. among ch. John, Daniel, Mary, w. of Samuel Bullen, beside Ann, wid. of Joseph, for his childr. equal. and no more; that I doubt the other names giv. in the Geneal. may not be all correct, especially as Abigail is said, therein, to m. Daniel Fisher, the speaker, whose w. was, I think, Abigail, d. of Thomas Marrett. Geneal. Reg. IX. 141, gives the inv. by wid. Elizabeth 10 Jan 1655. Perhaps the dates are confus. by the numerals for mos. and days in one of the transact. being interchang. The wid. d. 20 June 1665.
SAMUEL, perhaps s. of the preced. liv. at Dedham, says the Geneal. there by w. Mary Bullen had Mary, b. 20 June 1642; and Samuel; but it could [[vol. 3, p. 242]] tell no more, and guesses that he rem. to E. SAMUEL, Dedham, in the part wh. bec. Medfield, eldest s. of Joseph of the same, m. 10 Feb. 1665, Elizabeth Moore, had Samuel, b. 8 Feb. 1666; Elizabeth 28 Mar. 1668; Hannah, 30 Aug. 1669, d. soon; Hannah, again, 9 Nov. 1670, d. soon; Ruth, 21 Mar. 1672; JOSEPH, 16 Jan. 1674, both these d. young; Joshua, 7 Apr. 1679; Eleazer, 10 1680; and Belloni, 19 June 1682; and in one week aft. his w. d. He m. 29 Apr. 1684, Sarah Thurston, had Solomon 5 Jan. 1685; and Sarah, 11 July 1636; and this w. d. 29 Apr. 1688; and he d. 28 Feb. 1718.
SAMUEL, Sherborn, youngest s. of the first Daniel, by w. Deborah had Samuel, b. 4 June 1687; Eleazer, 22 Oct. 1688; Deborah, 1690; Mehitable, 1695, d. soon; Martha and Sarah, perhaps tw. 1696; Bethia, 1698; Miriam, 30 June 1700; Tabitha, 1702; and Benjamin, 1703, d. next yr. and the f. d. 2 Mar. 1704, and his w. d. 5 Oct. 1719. THOMAS, Dedham, adm. the ch. 28 June 1640, but I find not his name in the great Geneal. in the preparat. of wh. Rev. Abner, in our days, spent over thirty yrs. WALTER, Boston, I suppose of Muddy riv. bef. 1667, James Clark of that planta. in his will provides for the d. who m. him yet his name is not includ. with the innumera. Morses. WILLIAM, Newbury, br. of Anthony, came with him 1635, in the James, from Southampton, hav. been a shoemaker at Marlborough, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth wh. d. 18 Mar. 1655; Ann, perhaps bef. her, yet may be the d. nam. by Coffin, 6 Mar. 1641; perhaps John, wh. liv. at Tiverton; Jonathan, 1640; Joseph; Timothy, 10 June 1647 or 8, d. young; Abigail, 14 Feb. 1652; and prob. Edmund; d. says Coffin, 29 Nov. 1683, aged 69.
He had also Joshua, and prob. William, as he is call. sen. All the fam. was scatter. by the witchcr. virulence, some to R.I. some to Plym. and perhaps not a few in N. J. or further s. were spell. Moss. Ann m. 5 Feb. 1655, Francis Thorla of N. Mather, Magn. VI. 68, exults in the wondrous, diabolical operations, within, around, and against his dwelling, of wh. all were traceable, to a roguish gr.son. It was Increase Mather that first publish. the full relation of those follies as wonders. Much of the evidence how the devil was played in 1679, for wh. Elizabeth the poor tormented gr.mo. of young scapegrace was sentenced to be hanged, but happily pardoned; bef. the gr. adversary's full triumph, was gather by Coffin in his Hist. of N. and is well giv. in the Memorial of the Morses. Thirteen of this name in sev. forms of spelling, had, in 1834 been at Harv. six at Dart. four at Yale, and three at other N. E. coll.
MORTIMER, MORTIMORE, or MALTIMORE, EDWARD, Boston, merch. by w. Jane had Dorcas, b. 28 Nov. 1674; Edward, 20 June 1676; Elizabeth 19 Aug. 1678; Richard, 10 Aug. 1680; Jane, 12 July 1686; and Robert, 31 July 1688. He is highly commend. by John Dunton, wh. says he came from Ireland. RICHARD, Boston, perhaps br. of the preced. by w. Ann had Mary, b. 28 May 1664. THOMAS, New London, was constable 1680, had w. Elizabeth and two ds. Mary, wh. m. Robert Stoddard, and Elizabeth m. Abraham Willey. He d. 11 Mar. 1710. [[vol. 3, p. 243]]
MORTON, CHARLES, Charlestown, eldest s. of Rev. Nicholas, wh, d. at Southwark, near London, there hav. a parish, descend. of an anc. m. at Morton, in Co. Notts, where was the seat of Thomas Morton, says Farmer, secr. of Edward III. was b. 1626, in Cornwall, bred at Wadham Coll. Oxford, and sett. at Blisland, in his native Co. as a min. thence eject. in 1662, he liv. sev. yrs. at Newington Green, near London, and was wholly engag. in teach. a private semin. until 1686, when he emb. for Boston, and 5 Nov. of this yr. was ord. at C. His neph. Charles, an M. D., came with him, but went home in July of next yr.; ano. neph. Nicholas, H. C. 1686, wh. d. at Charlestown, 3 Nov. 1689, had come a yr. earlier than his uncle. An aged wid. Ann, says the rec. d. 20 Dec. 1690; but she may not have been relat. Some reports still circulate a. the design of mak. him head of our college, but there can be no founda. for the idea, that such an inducem. caus. his com. for Increase Mather was chos. near. a yr. bef. his leav. Eng. and some jealousy was rais. against him for teach. matters of high rank in the college curriculum. Vice President he was indeed chos. being the first in such rank, and, I suppose, the last who acted under a presid. officer, for when the Inst. was reliev. from the rule of Mather, and nobody was to be found fit to be his successor, with condition of resid. on adequ. salary, Willard was made real head of the Coll. with the inferior title that Morton had enjoy. yet not held to resid. M.was too old to succeed Mather, when this latter was sent to Eng. and d. some yrs. bef. the office was vacat. by him.
It is rather strange, that his d. wh. was on 11 Apr. 1698, by Penhallow, who was his pupil in Eng. and came over with him, is mark. 1696, see 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 162, and by Dr. Bartett, in the next Vol. of Coll. 171, noted 1706, aged 80. Plymouth, s. of George, came with his f. in the Ann, 1623; but Judge Davis, in the preface to the Memorial, says, he was b. on the passage. Cotton's Plymouth ch. hist. in 1 Hist. Coll. IV. 126, marks his d. 7 Sept. 1693, in 70th yr. of his age, wh. implies that he was b. aft. the arr. of the sh. in July. Perhaps the differ. may be explain. by error in Cotton's use of the Latin word, as very frequent. occurs in careless mod. writers. He m. 18 Nov. 1644, Ann Cooper, wh. d. 1 Sept. 1691, had Ephraim, b. 27 Jan. 1648; Rebecca, 15 Mar. 1651; Josiah, 1653; George; Nathaniel; Eleazer; Thomas; and Patience; who were all m. and ea. s. had issue.
