PONTON, or PONTING, RICHARD, Boston, a husbandman, adm. of the ch. 28 Dec. 1649, had been bound, 1 Jan. 1641, for eight yrs. with his [[vol. 3, p. 454]] own assent, to John Read of Braintree, rem. to Hartford 1662, freem. 1663, d. or rem. bef. 1669
PONTUS, WILLIAM, Plymouth 1633, in 1643 not in the list of those able to bear arms, i. e. under the age of 60, d. 9 Feb. 1653, have. made his will 9 Sept. 1650, leav. two chl. only, with very small est. Mary wh. had m. 31 Oct. 1645, James Glass, and next, 1657, Philip Delano; and Hannah, wh. had m. 18 Dec. 1644, John Churchill, and next, 25 June 1669, Giles Rickard, and d. 22 Dec. 1690.
POOLE, POOL, or POLE, BENJAMIN, Weymouth, s. of Edward, was a soldier on Conn. riv. in Philip's war, 1676, and of him I hear no more. EDWARD, Newport 1638, prob. was of Weymouth most of his days, had Samuel, Isaac, Joseph, Benjamin, John, Sarah, and Jacob, nam. in this order in his will of 22 Aug. 1664, of wh. his w. was Extrix. pro. 16 Sept. foll. of wh. other three last were minors, and prob. Samuel the eldest. See Geneal. Reg. XII. 12 and 13. The w.'s name is not seen. ELIZABETH, Taunton 1637, the chief cause of build. at T. was maiden sis. of William, and elder than him, of a good fam. in heraldry, as well as religion, may be regard. as one of the most decid. proofs of the deep roots that puritanism had attain. in Eng. She d. 21 May 1654, aged 65. hav. made her will four days bef. in wh. John, eldest s. of her br. was nam. Excor. Abstr. of it is in Geneal. Reg. V. 262. See Winthrop I. 252.
HENRY, Boston, d. 14 Sept. 1643; may have been inf. ISAAC, Weymouth, s. of Edward, by w. Elishama had Margeret, b. 24 Aug. 1669; and perhaps others not on rec. or he may have rem. JOHN, Cambridge 1632, went to Lynn bef. 1638, when he had there 200 acres, and last of Reading, where his w. Margaret d. 29 Apr. 1662, and he d. 1 Apr. 1667. His will of 14 Feb. preced. made Jonathan his s. Excor. names other ch. Mary, and her h. Matthew Edwards, and her ch. Mary, Sarah, and Elizabeth also s.-in-law, William Barrett, whose w. Sarah (d. not of testat. but of Richard Champney) was d. also her ch. John and Lydia; also gr.ch. John, Sarah, and Mary P. wh. I presume to be ch. of his s. Jonathan; and lastly br. Armitage, and his three s. sis. Armitage and cous. Godfrey Armitage, and his w. and two ch. beside Mr. Dane of Andover, and his w. whose relationship is less appar.
JOHN, Boston 1670, s. of William, merch. freem. 1673, with prefix of respect. was disting. says Baylis I. 287, as an officer in Philip's war, yet possib. by that author mistake. for the Reading gent. He m. 28 Mar. 1672, Elizabeth d. of Gov. Brenton, not Benton, as in Geneal. Reg. V. 402. His w. was bapt. as the O. S. ch. rec. shows "at a ch. meeting at her ho." a very uncommon favor, if not unexampl. bef. that, in our country, and John, Elizabeth and Courtney, his and her ch. were bapt. some days aft.; William, 11 Jan. 1680; and Jane, 12 Nov. 1682. Bef. that time no ch. [[vol. 3, p. 455]] in N. E. had been bapt. exc. on the Lord's day, as Sunday was call. in law and popul. usage. JOHN, Weymouth, s. of Edward of the same, by w. Eliz had Susanna, b. 17 Dec. 1679; and by w. Joanna had Hannah, 24 Oct. 1687; and Joanna, 21 Dec. 1688.
JOHN, Beverly, a carpenter, m. Sarah, wid. of Richard Woodbury, wh. d. 13 Nov. 1716, had Jonathan, b. 1694; Miriam,, 1695; Robert, 1697; Ebenezer, 1699; and Joshua, 1700; rem. to Gloucester, and had Caleb, 1701; and John, 1703. For sec. w. he had Deborah Dodge, d. prob. of Samuel, but she d. 1 Feb. 1718; and his third w. Elizabeth Holmes, perhaps d.; of John of Salem, d. 13 July 1720; and he took fourth w. in May 1721, Abigail Ballard of Lynn, says Babson, and had Return in 1722; and Abigail, 1725; and he d. 19 May 1727. *JONATHAN, Reading, s. of the first John, had Sarah, b. 22 July 1656; Judah, a d. 1 Sept. 1658, prob. d. young; Mary, 21 Aug. 1660, d. next yr.; Mary, again, 14 Nov. 1662; and prob. a John; was much valu. in Philip's war, a capt. under major Appleton at Hudley, and Presid. of the counc. of war in the winter of 1675-6, rep. 1677, d. 24 Dec. 1678 aged 44. JOSEPH, Weymouth, s. of Edward, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 6 Dec. 1674; Mary, 20 Jan. 1681; Benjamin, 9 Feb. 1683; Margaret, 22 Apr. 1688; and by w. Mary had Abigail, 30 June 1690. RICHARD, New London, d. a 20 Apr. 1662, without w. or ch. gave his est. to w. and childr. of George Tongue.
SAMUEL, Boston, adm. of the ch. 19 June 1642, call. merch. with prefix of respect, had Ann, bapt. 7 Aug. next a. 8 days old; yet I kn. nothing more of him,unless he were that capt. wh. m. Silence, d. of Rev. Peter Saxton of Scituate, wh. d. bef. 1 Oct. 1651; or perhaps of Reading, where Eaton calls one early sett. by his name. SAMUEL, Weymouth, s. prob. eldest of Edward, by w. Mercy had Mary, b. 20 Nov. 1668. *WILLIAM, Dorchester, perhaps as early as 1630, yet most remarkable is it, that he was at Taunton sev. yrs. aft. 1637, there call. capt. rep. 1641, being br. of the patron saint of that newer town, but in rec.of D. describ. as town, clk. ten yrs. and oft. sch. master, while we do not learn whether these functions were fulfil. bef. he went or aft. his return, or partly both. My opinion is that not long aft. the d. of his sis. from whose will we learn more than by all other means a. his fam. he came back to D.and pass. the last 18 or 20 yrs. Certain. at D.he had Theophilus, b. 27 May, bapt. 3 June 1660, and his may render prob. that his elder s. and ds. John, Nathaniel, Timothy, Mary, and Bethesda, were b. at T. He d. at D. 24 Feb. 1675, aged 81; and his wid. wh. had been m. as early, I judge, as June 1638, perhaps Mary, d. of John Richmond, d. near the end of 1690. Timothy was drown. at T. 15 Dec. 1667; of Nathaniel nothing is heard exc. in the will of his aunt Elizabeth and it may be that he d. young; nor is more told of Theophilus [[vol. 3, p. 456]] than his b. and bapt.; Mary was sec. w. of Daniel Henchman, and Bethesda Poole (whose f. show. his relig. we may regret, more than his judgm. in taking for the d.'s name that of the intermit. fountain, of wh. the power is so beautiful. told in the narrat. of the evangelist) m. 1686 John Filer, as his sec. w. He had s. William, wh. was bapt. 20 June 1658 at Roxbury. Baylies derives the fam. from Taunton in Co. Somerset. WILLIAM, Brookhaven, L. I. 1680, perhaps was s. of the preced. Thompson.
POOR, or POORE, BENJAMIN, Newbury, s. of Samuel the first, m. 13 Apr. 1696, Mary, wid. of George Hardy, who d. 8 Aug. 1707, had Sarah, b. 6 Sept. 1697; and Ann, 31 Oct. 1700. DANIEL, Andover, is that youth, I suppose, aged 14, whose name on the list of passeng. in the Bevis from Southampton, 1638, is Dayell, coming with Alce or Alice P. aged 20, prob. his sis. and Samuel P. 18, perhaps their br. and others, under the designat. of serv. of Richard Dummer, m. 20 Oct. 1650, Mary Farnum, perhaps d. of Ralph; and d. 1713, it is said, aged 85, wh. is one of the very few instances of under estimate. Only s. Daniel. and John, are nam.; and of John the d. is so early as 24 Dec. 1690, that perhaps he was never m. But seven fem. Poors are as early found to m. and all may have been his ds. viz. Martha, with Jon Granger, 9 Feb. 1680; Hannah, with Francis Dane, jr. 16 Nov. 1681; Eliz, with Jacob Marston, 7 Apr. 1686; Priscilla, with Abraham Moore, 14 Dec. 1687; Deborah, with Timothy Osgood, 29 May 1689; Ruth, with John Stevens, 20 Dec. 1689; and Lucy, with Samuel Austin, 11 Oct. 1691. DANIEL Andover, s. of the preced. by w. Michitable had Daniel, Mehitable, John, Samuel, Joseph, and Thomas; yet the dates of b. are not kn. of either, and a from the rec. is kn. that Mehitable d. 14 Jan. 1691, prob. quite young; while of Thomas, we doubt whether it be this s. of Daniel, or ano. whose d. is ment. 7 Feb. 1695. He d. 1735, aged 79. EDWARD, Newbury, s. of John the first, or perhaps of Samuel, by w. Elizabeth had Stephen, b. 20 Apr. 1688; Elizabeth 21 Mar. 1690; and Joseph, 15 Apr. 1704.
HENRY, Newbury, s. of John, m. 12 Sept. 1679, Abigail, d. of sec. Thomas Hale, had Abigail, b. 9 Sept. 1680; Henry, 31 Jan. 1682; Jeremiah, 10 Jan. 1684; Mary, 10 Apr. 1686, d. soon; Mary, again, 20 Sept. 1687; Hannah, 19 July 1692; Sarah, 18 Jan. 1694; Benjamin, 1696; and Daniel, 1700; was taxed in Rowley 1691.

Damaris Shattuck, d. of Samuel of Salem, had Benjamin, to wh. was giv. 13 Apr. 1702, admin. on est. of his f.; Samuel; Ebenezer; and Jerome; and their mo. having their proport. EPHRAIM, Boston, d. 1677, in his will of 27 June 1676, names only Ephraim, and Elizabeth as his ch. The s. d. of smallpox, Nov. 1678. JOHN, Dorchester, came prob. 1633, with w. Jane, was a shoemaker, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, perhaps brot. two or three ch. and here had John,b. 30 June 1635; Nathan, wh. was b. as is said, but certain. 1641; and by w. Alice had Thomas, 27 Dec. 1643; and perhaps that [[vol. 3, p. 458]] Margaret, w. of John P. whose gr.-st. says she d. 20 Oct. 1702, or 1672, as sometimes read, aged 74, was his third w. He was one of the founders of the new ch. for Richard Mather, 1636; d. 12 Apr. 1646. Of his will the abstr. may be seen in Geneal. Reg. VII. 229; yet why it was not pro. bef. 5 June 1649 and inv. delay. to four days preced. would be difficult to guess, unless we suppose the last fig. to be erron. It ment. w. and a d. but no s. four serv. br. Thomas, and Joshua, my sis.s h. We might by this docum. judge the testator to have been a weaver, rather than a shoemaker. But early acco. is sadly confus. of all the Dorchester Popes; and the most patient of their inquir. cannot wholly unravel. One Jane, wh. d. 12 Jan. 1663, in her will of 18 Apr. preced. gives to her d. Patience, w. of Edward Blake; but whether she was w. of this John, or when that d. was b. I find not. See Geneal. Reg. XI. 339.
JOHN, Dorchester, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Beatrice had John, b. 1 July 1658; Jane, 12 May 1677; and Joseph, 17 Oct. 1680, d. in one wk. as says Geneal. reg. V. 465, and adds that his wid. Beatrice was at Lancaster, 1700. In Hist. of D. 74, John P. sen. d. 19 Oct. 1686, but this may not of necessity deny a former John, any more than it would make Margaret w. of John, wh. d. Oct. 1672, as it declares, the same Margaret left wid. of John 19 Oct. 1686. JOHN, Springfield 1678, prob. rem. to Windsor 1683, there d. that yr. unm. it is thot. JOSEPH, Salem, came in the Mary and John of London, 1634, freem. 17 May 1637, there by w.

His will of 25 Jan. pro. 3 Mar. of that yr. names all the ch. but the first two, and notes that the eldest d. was infirm of mind. as prob. had been her mo. at least she was much afflict. in the witchcraft days; also names Mary, and Sarah, ch. of his s. Nathaniel. dec. bef. 1711. RICHARD, Dorchester 1635, but Mr. Clap thinks was not long there, and he call. br. by Joseph in his will.

Feb. 1687, d. in few mos.; Samuel, 11 June 1689; Margaret, 21 Oct. 1691; Enos, 1 Feb. 1695; [[vol. 3, p. 459]] Hannah, 17 Feb. 1697; Elizabeth 23 May; 1698; Eunice, 12 Aug. 1700; and Ruth, 11 Mar. 1705, d. soon.

When this w. d. is not told, but he m. sec. w. 29 May 1646, Sarah, d. of John Jenney, had Seth, b. 13 Jan. 1648; Thomas, 25 Mar. 1651; John, 15 Mar. 1653; and Susanna, wh. m. 7 Nov. 1666, Jacob Mitchell, and being call. in 1663 eldest d. of said P. by w. Sarah requires us to believe that ano. d. foll. In 1675, he was 67 yrs. old.
THOMAS, Dorchester, perhaps br. of John of the same, had Thomas, b. 26 Dec. 1670; and Alice, 23 Dec. 1676; as says Geneal. Reg. 465, where it adds that he m. 18 Nov. 1681, Margaret Long. THOMAS, Suffield, by w. Margaret, had Mindwell, b. 1687; and his w. d. next yr. at Springfield. One of these two Thomases prob. tho. wh. of them may be hard to guess, was of Hempstead on L. I.
