RUGGLES, BENJAMIN, Suffield, s. of the fourth John, but third of Roxbury, had seven ch. to leave when he d. 7 Sept. 1708, only 32 yrs. old. GEORGE, Boston 1633, weaver, freem. 4 Mar. 1634, by w.

He was from Sudbury in Co. Suff. and therefore had been a near neighb. in their native ld. had w. Margaret, wh. was No. 47 on our list of ch. mem. JOHN, Boston 1630, freem. 3 July 1632, had w.

Whether he had other ch. or when he d. are unkn. but his inv. was of 22 Jan.1657. Perhaps he was br. of the preced. *JOHN, Roxbury, came in the Hopewell, capt. Bundock, from London 1635, aged 44, with w. Barbara, 30, and first b. ch. John, 2; a shoemaker form Nazing in Co. Essex, a 20 ms. from London, was freem. 18 Apr. 1637. His w. d.

JOHN, Roxbury, s. of Thomas, b. in Eng. came in the Hopewell, 1635, aged 10, with his uncle John, but brot. by Philip Eliot, says the ch. rec. m . 14 Jan. 1651, Abigail, d. of Griffin Crafts, had John, b. 16 Oct. foll. d. soon; John, again, bapt. 22 Jan. 1654; Thomas, 28 Jan. 1655, H. C. 1690, and Samuel, b. 16, bapt. 23 Aug. 1657; was freem. 1654; a serg. and d. or was bur. 15 Sept. 1658. In his will of 9 Aug. proced. print. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 139, he names the w. and three ch. His wid. m. Edward Adams. JOHN, Roxbury, s. of the first John of the same, b. in Eng. m. 3 Apr. 1655, Mary, d. of John Gibson of Cambridge, and had John, b. 19 may 1657; Mary, bapt. with her br.

His w. d. 2 May 1687, and he took third w. Ruth, wh. d. 11 Apr. 1710, and he d. 25 Feb. 1712. Perhaps his d. Mary m. 6 June 1682, John Searle.
JOHN, Boston, a butcher, s. of George, freem.1663, rem. in his latter days to Braintree, in his will of 10 Nov. 1707, pro. 11 Nov. 1709, gave s. John his est. in Boston, and [[vol. 3, p. 587]] the rest of his prop. to s. Joseph, d. Elizabeth Belcher, s. in law, Jonathan Hayward, and gr.ch. Sarah H. s. in law Jonathan Jones, and gr.ch.

He d. 16 Dec. 1694; and his wid. d. 17 Dec. 1700, but one tradit. is that she m. a Paine. Perhaps he lib. at Muddy riv. and so the Roxbury rec. was neglect. JOHN, Roxbury, s. of John third of the same, m. 4 Nov. 1676, Mary, d. of John May, had Mary, b. 24 Sept. foll. d. young; Hannah, 15 July 1680; Mary, again, 23, bapt. 25 Dec. 1681; Sarah, 28 Feb. 1687, unless it should be Martha, 21 Dec. 1686; and perhaps Dorothy, 20 Feb. 1688; and I am unable to discrimin. by the rec. Great care was need. among the earlier Johns; but of the last two, I kn. not wh. was the freem. of 1690. Four, five or six different ones are call. junrs. and sometimes both deaths and marriages are inadeq. guides; for I greatly fear that both Hannah and Martha, was. of one or the other John, as also part of their childr. respective, are here interchangeab. confus.
NATHANIEL, Boston, a mariner, whose f. I cannot trace, unless he were s. of Samuel the first of Roxbury, n his will of wh. I discov. not the date, but it was pro. 15 Dec. 1702, aft. commit. his "soul into the hands of my Creator and Redeemer the Ld. Jesus Christ," a strange confusion of terms guarded against by the creed of St. Athanasius, he gives to his "mo.

THOMAS, Roxbury, elder br. of John first of the same, and prob. cousin of the first John of Boston, came in 1637, with w. Mary,and ch.

Mary the wid. of Thomas, m. aft. 1662, a Roote, whose name of bapt. is unkn. and of her, at the date of her bur. 14 Feb. 1675, Eliot writes thus: "Old mo. Roote, wh. was Thomas Ruggles' wid. afore.

He was possib. of Salisbury 1652, perhaps of Marblehead 1668-1674, tho. I think this was much younger man, the br. of John, wh. in his will, 26 Aug. 1663, gave him portion of his est. A HENRY of New Hampsh. on the gr. jury 1684, may have been his s. JAMES, New Haven 1643 or earlier, d. 21 Jan. 1673, and his wid. Mary d. 21 Aug. 1674. He is thot. to have had s. William, perhaps b. in Eng. the f. of Noadiah. ? *JAMES, Charlestown, eldest s. of Hon. Richard, m. a Mabel, d. of Gov.

JASON, Cambridge, s. of William, m. 27 May 1684, Mary Hubbard, had Hubbard, b. a. 1687, and perhaps more. JOHN, Dorchester, d. 26 Aug. 1633, and in his nuncup, will, gave to his br. s Henry R. and Thomas Hyatt, half his est. and half to the ch. of D. and set free his man serv. JOHN, Cambridge, freem. 3 Ma. 1636, town clk. in 1645, [[vol. 3, p. 591]] constable in 1648, brought, no doubt, s. John, b. a 1626, H. C. 1645, rem. soon aft. to Wethersfield, where had raged a very unpleasant quarrel betw. Rev. Henry Smith and a part of his people, end. in 1648 by his death. He next yr. m. Dorothy, the wid. of Mr. Smith, and the s. succeed. him as min. By former w. he had also Philip, b. perhaps in Eng. perhaps at our Cambridge; rem. 1659 to Hadley, and d. 8 May 1680, aged 83. Hinman calls him a rep. 1646-8, but tho. he says nothing else of him, p. 70, I suppose that is wrong. In neither of those yrs. does Trumbulls Col. Rec. so honor him, indeed he was not made freem. bef. 1655, nor was he ever so chose. If my conjecture would benefit the eye of a reader of those rec. he might see the name that mislet H. to be John Bissel, sometimes Byssel, wh. was more than half the time that R. lib. in Conn. one of the reps.
JOHN, Charlestown 1640, one of the first sett. of Worburn, freem. 1644, was shoemaker and deac. had w. Elizabeth wh. d. 16 Dec. 1644, s. John, perhaps b. in Eng. and d.

Some distinct. is justly claim. for him as one of the founders of the first Bapt. ch. of Boston, 1669, gather, first in Noddle's isl. some yrs. earlier, and was its elder or deac. JOHN, Marshfield, 1643-51. JOHN, Wethersfield, s. of John of the same, b. in Eng. m. at Hartford, 28 June 1649. Mary d. of John Talcott, had John, b. 23 sept. 1650 (by the false rec. in Geneal. Reg. XII. 197, said to be bapt. that day, wh. was Monday), wh. d. at 20 yrs. and Jonathan, 1655, H. C. 1675, but this s. may have been by sec. w.

In 1650 he was made freem. but aft. long controv. that may seem to have ben the pastor's inherit. from his predecess. in 12659, he had rem. to Hadley, and carr. both s. with major part of the ch. had Samuel, b. 4 Nv. 1660, H.

At his ho. in Hadley were long conceal. the regicides, Whalley and Goffe, wh. d. there some yrs. apart, and both corpses were bur. in his ground close to the foundat. of his ho. where, to contradict an absurd tradit. of rem. of the bones to New Haven, the authentic remains were, a few yrs. since ascert. by rem. of the cellar wall for the railroad.
JOHN, Woburn, s. of John of the same, b. perhaps in Eng. a shoemaker, m. 31 Oct. 1661, Sarah Champney, perhaps d. of John of Cambridge, had John, b. 1 Aug. 162; Joseph, 15 Jan. 1664; Samuel, 3 Feb. 1667, d. at 10 mos. Sarah, 10 Feb. 1671; Elizabeth 19 Feb. 1673; Jonathan, 6 Aug. 1675; and Thomas, 5 Jan. 1678. After the loss of their teacher, Gould, by the first Bapt. ch. in Boston, to wh. he had unit. hims.

Elizabeth had Martha, wh. d. 7 Nov. 1675; was prob. freem. 1681, tho. as both senr. and junr. of C. were then adm. it maybe uncertain, wh. of the two was the s. of William. JOHN, New Haven 1664 perhaps had been empl. in iron works at Taunton, by w. Hannah had Hannah, b. 19 Mar. 1671; William, 2 Sept. 1676, d. young, at sea; ano. ch.
