He came back to B. and had Ebenezer, in 1675, tho. the b. is not ent. on the rec. very deficient that yr. as the clk. with his f. and two brs. was occup. in milit. service of Philip's war, and there d. 7 June 1694. His wid. Naomi admin. the est. His s. Ebenezer was a shoemaker, f. of Rev. John, H. C. 1721, ord. at Newbury, 19 Jan. 1726, wh. was f. of John, H.

JOSEPH, Boston, a cooper, br. of the preced. m. 8 Mar. 1660, Abigail, d. of George Proctor of Dorchester, had Joseph, b. 1 Aug. 1661, d. soon; Hannah, 31 Jan. 1663; Joseph, again, 9 Nov. 1665; Abigail, 4 Feb. 1667, d. soon; James, 27 Mar. 1668; Abigail, again, 9 Mar. 1671; and Samuel, 13 July 1678. PERCIVAL, Newbury, merch. came from Bristol, 1639 bring. s. John and Richard; his w. Rebecca d. 28 Dec. 1640, and he d. 8 Jan. 1665. Fam. tradit. says he was eldest s . of Richard, wh. m. a Percival, and drew his descent. thro. eight generat. by the eldest s. of ea. from Walter of Yardley, in Co. Worcester.
PERCIVAL, Newbury, s. of Richard, m. 7 Sept. 1664, Mary Chandler, had Richard, b. 25 Dec. 1668, wh. liv. to 29 May 1749; Gideon, 3 Sept. 1672; Samuel, 13 [[vol. 3, p. 127]] Jan. 1676; and Edmund, 24 Sept. 1684. RICHARD, Newbury, br. of John of the same, came with his f. 1639, bring. w. but no ch. that is kn. had Percival, bef. ment. b. 1639; and Rebecca, 27 Jan. 1642. His w. d. that yr. and by sec. w. Margaret he had Samuel, 1644; and Thomas, 28 Sept. 1649; and d. 5 Aug. 1682, aged 80, says Coffin. Fifteen descend. of the first Percival have been gr. at Harv. and it is noted, that four have, at diff. times, been of the corpo. of the Univ.
LOWGIE, or LOUGEE, John, came at the age of 16, in the Confidence of London, from Southampton 1638, with Grace, perhaps his sis. as serv. of John Stephens of Caversham, Oxfordsh. This name is preserv. in N. H. but the tradit. of the fam. derives it from a John, wh. came from the Isle of Jersey, seventy yrs. later.
LUCAR, MARK, Newport, among freem. 1655.
LUCAS, THOMAS, Plymouth, had John, b. 15 July 1656; Mary, 1 Mar. 1658; Benoni, 30 Oct. 1659; Samuel, 15 Sept. 1661; and Wil liam, 13 Jan. 1663; and was k. by the Ind. in Philip's war. WILLIAM, Middletown, m. 12 July 1666, Esther Clark, perhaps d. of John of New Haven, wh. d. 16 Apr. and he d. 29 Apr. 1690, leav. William, b. 26 Apr. 1667; John, 14 Oct. 1669; Mary, 5 Dec. 1672; Thomas, 1676; and Samuel, 15 Apr. 1682. A Mr. L. with prefix of respect was of New Haven 1643, with fam. of six, of wh. no more is heard. He prob. was one of the London associates who soon went home. A Lucas fam. of good est. in N. E. is of French descent, but came not early across the ocean, the first emigr. Augustus writ. of hims. "I m. 6 Jan. 1696, at St. Malo, in Bretagne."
LUCE, or LUCY, EXPERIENCE, perhaps of Edgartown, s. of Henry, m. Elizabeth d. of John Manter, had Zephaniah, b. 19 Feb. 1695; perhaps others, and d. 9 Jan. 1747. HENRY, Rehoboth 1668. Prob. he rem. to the Vineyard, and by w. Remember had Experience, b. 7 Feb. 1673, perhaps others. THOMAS, Charlestown, had Samuel, b. 1644, says Farmer, to wh. I can add nothing, but that he prob. rem. soon. The name abounds at the Vineyard. One LUCY, at Portsmouth, m. Mary, d. of William Brooking, and had Benjamin.
LUCKIS, or LUCKIN, WILLIAM, Marblehead 1648. Dana, Hist. Disc. 7.
LUDDEN, BENJAMIN, Weymouth, perhaps s. of James, by w. Eunice, d. I think, of John Holbrook, had d. Abia, b. 22 Dec. 1679; a s. whose name; is not kn. 13 Mar. 1681; and James, 9 Nov. 1689. JAMES, Weymouth, had Mary, b. 17 Dec. 1636; Sarah, 15 Nov. 1639, d. soon; Sarah, again, 5 June 1642; and John, so late as 13 Jan. 1657, by w. wh. may have been mo. of the others. Perhaps this man was the guide, in Oct. 1632, in honor of wh. Gov. Winthrop then travelling on foot from Plymouth to W. named a fording place in the North river. But the rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 171, calls him Laddon. In the note on p. 146 of the Hist. of Boston, attention is drawn to this name. Diligent as the writer is, his meaning may be misunderstood, when, aft. printing the name Ludham, at the foot, tho. in the text above, and in his [[vol. 3, p. 128]] Index, with me he adopts Luddam, yet, for change of sec. d to h he says, "I follow Prince, wh. follow. or used Winthrop in the original." As the last three words are print. in Italics it might seem, that an insinuation was intend. that I had not used or follow. the orig. A candid reader need not be distressed with such a suspicion, or presume that Mr. Drake believ. such a thing; for the venerable MS. in its original ink is accessib. and here more plain than often it appears.
Winthrop wrote the name twice in the same short sentence, the first time, as it was print. by me, and the sec. as giv. in Webster's Ed. of 1790, with h aft. double dd. I was content with one form. Prince struck a mid. course, and the historian of Boston mioht learn from inspection, that the petty deviation from the orig. is seen in the scrupulous annalist, Hale's Ed. 407, and not in the annotator. of Winthrop Nobody would blame Winthrop for spelling the name two ways in one sentence, nor Prince for so slight variance from both; nor quarrel with Secr. Porter in transcrib. the copy that Webster print. for obeying the latter form of Winthrop's writing of the name with an h, nor with me for accepting the earlier form, without that letter. After inspection of the ancient MS.
Mr. Drake would observe that his criticism was more than unnecessary; and his readers may excuse the error by inferring that instead of the open, bold Roman types, the natural overflow of his benignant impulses sought the more modest Italic character of censure. JOHN, Weymouth, wh. may have been s. of the preced. was a soldier on Conn. riv. under capt. Turner, in Mar. 1676. This name is not rare in the W. part of Mass.
LUDDINGTON, WILLIAM, Charlestown 1642, liv. in the part wh. bec. Malden, by w. Ellen had Mary, b. 6 Feb. 1643; had, also, Matthew, 16 Dec. 1657, d. next mo.; rem. to New Haven, but the time is unkn. there had William; Henry, wh. d. unm. 1676; Hannah; John; and Thomas; and d. at the East Haven iron works, 1662. His wid. m. next yr. John Rose. His inv. calls him of Malden, but the fam. was perpet. at New Haven, by WILLIAM, prob. the eldest surv. s. wh. m. Martha, perhaps d. of John Rose, had Henry; Elinor; and William, b. 26 Sept. 1686. By sec. w. m. 1690, Mercy Whitehead, he had Mercy, b. 31 May 1691; Hannah, 13 Mar. 1693; John, 31 Jan. 1695; Eliphalet, 28 Apr. 1697; Elizabeth 1699, d. young; Dorothy, 16 July 1702; and Dorcas, 16 July 1701. The name is very rare of any other stock certain. but in the spring of 1635 a Christian L. aged 18 embark. at London, on board the Hopewell.
LUDECAS, or LEUDECOES, DANIEL, Dover 1659. His w. d. 1 Nov. 1662; and he d.in 1664.
LUDKIN, AARON, Charlestown, prob. s. of George or William, but may have been younger br. of them, or otherwise relat. came, we may [[vol. 3, p. 129]] be sure, from Norwich, Eng. own sev. pieces of ld. in our Hingham, sold by him in 1671. His w. Hannah, d. perhaps, of George Hepbourne, was rec. into the ch. Apr. 1650, yet I find not in Budington's valua. list his adm. tho. he was chos. deac. Feb. 1672. Nor is the acco. much better of ch. for we hear only of Hannah, w. of Samuel Dowse, join. the ch. 15 June 1673. He d. 26 Mar. 1694, In 76th yr. and his wid. Hannah, d. of Richard Miller, wh. had been wid. of Nathaniel Dade, and of John Edmunds, he had m. 22 May 1684, and she d. 13 Dec. 1717, if the gr.stones are correct.
GEORGE, Hingham, one of the first drawers for house lots, 1635, came from Norwich, Co. Norf'k. with w. and s. freem. 3 Mar. 1636, rem. to Braintree, there d. 22 Feb. 1648. WILLIAM, Hingham, perhaps br. of the preced. a locksmith, b. at Norwich, aged 33, and his w. Elizabeth aged 34, with one ch. and one serv. Thomas Howes, as we learn from the declar. 8 Apr. 1637, came that season from Ipswich, arr. at Boston, 20 June, freem. Mar. foll. in Boston his d. Esther was bur. Oct. 1645, ar. co. 1651, chos. constable 8 Mar. and drown. 27 Mar. 1652, leav. wid. Elizabeth and two ch.
LUDLOW, GEORGE, a gent. with prefix of respect, req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630 as freem. was, perhaps, kinsman of Roger L. then one of the Assist. and may have accomp. him in the Mary and John to Dorchester, but prob. went home in the spring of the foll. yr. for it may be infer. from Col. Rec. of 1 Mar. that a petit. from Eng. had been receiv. to wh. his attent. was to be request. by the Gov. and Council. HENRY, Huntington, L. I. adm. freem. of Conn. 1664; may have been s. of Roger, but we kn. nothing of it. ROGER, Dorchester, came in the Mary and John from Plymouth, May 1630, an Assist. chos. at the last gen. court in London, 10 Feb. 1630, and first attend. at the first Assist. court in Charlestown, Aug. foll. in 1634 was made dept.-gov. but left out next yr. hav. infirmity of temper. He rem. 1635, to Windsor, and in the civil line was chief of a commiss. of eight from Mass. with unlimit. power, 1636, for some time; was engag. in the Pequot war; and the first dept.-gov. of the Col. of CODD. rem. to Fairfield a. 1639, and early in 1641 bot. from the Ind. the territ. on E. side of Norwalk riv. was employ. in 1646 for reduc. their laws to a system, and was Commissnr. 1651, 2, and 3 in the congr. of the Unit. Col. of N. E. but went off next yr. to Virg. in some disgust, and there pass. the residue of his days, under a maledict. for carrying away the town rec. wh. was a charge long aft. refut. by find. the vol. in town. He had a ch. b. at W. but the does not tell the Dame; and his d. Sarah m. Rev. Nathaniel Brewof Brookhaven.
That the habit. heedlessness of Mather, II. 33, made his name William, is less matter of surprise than that Farmer was blinded by the blunder. Its origin was prob. reading Mr. as abbrev. for William.

LUDWELL, JOHN, a passeng. aged 50, in the Confidence from Southampton 1638, hut no more is kn. of him.
LUFKIN, HUGH, Salem 1654, says Farmer, and I can add nothing. THOMAS, Gloucester, perhaps s. of Hugh, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 16 Nov. 1674; Ebenezer, 18 May 1676; Abraham and Isaac, tw. 14 and 16 Feb. says the rec. without ment. of the yr. but it adds (as we might expect), d. same mo.; and Thomas, 9 Apr. 1682. The name is spell. Lovekin or Loufken. Lufkin is a name at Dedham, in Old Eng.
LUGG, or LUGGE, JOHN, Boston 1637, by w. Jane had Elizabeth b. 7 Mar. 1638, bapt. 24 Mar. 1639, the mo. aft. his w. join. to the ch.; Mary, b. Aug. 1642, but the rec. of her bapt. 25 Sept. adds, "a. 4 days old;" and John, 4 Aug. 1644, a. 2 days old; and he d. 1647. He is, I presume, the man wh. Felt enumer. among Salem people, as John Lutf, hav. gr. of ld. 1637, because that name never occurs elsewhere except in the list of passeng. to pass for N. E. in the Mary and John, who took the o. of supremacy and alleg. 24 Mar. 1634. Final letters are easily mistaken; and very many of such grants were ineffect. In the will of Samuel Hagborne of Roxbury, 24 July 1643, are giv. "unto my br. Lugrr four bushels of corn, and my suit of apparel." His d. Mary m. 21 Feb. 1659, Nathaniel Barnard. Possib. there were both Luff and Lugg with common name of John, but it appears very unlikely.
LUIN, HENRY, Boston, by w. Sarah had Sarah, b. 20 Aug. 1636; Elizabeth 27 Mar. 1638; and Ephraim, 16 Jan. 1640.

THOMAS, Dunstable, an early sett. and selectman, had Thomas, b. 9 Sept. 1682; Elizabeth 29 Sept. 1684; and William, 19 Jan. 1686. His s. Thomas left descend. but was k. by the Ind. 5 Sept. 1724.

LUNERUS, .......a German or Polish doctor in Boston, wh. m. 1 July 1652, wid. Margaret Clemens. In 1654, by our Gen. Ct. rec. it appears, that he was to determine when an offender should be whipp. he, the offend. being then too ill. I trust the adv. of the physician was on the side of mercy, for the poor Scotch prisoner, a waif from the civil war in G. B. d. soon aft.
LUNT, DANIEL, Newbury, eldest s. of Henry, m. 16 May 1664, Hannah, d. of Robert Coker, had Hannah, b. 17 May 1665; Daniel, 1 May 1667; Henry 23 June 1669; John, 10 Feb. 1672; Sarah, 18 June 1674; Mary, 24 July 1677; his w. d. 29 Jan. 1679, and he m.

THOMAS, Norwalk 1654, one of the first sett. and adm. to be freem. 1664, but was not actually accounted so in 1669; had two ch. but we learn not their names from Hall, the dilig. histor. and, perhaps, they d. young. On p. 61, his Peter Lupton should be Clapton, or Clapham. He was liv. 1687, but a wid. L. is ment. next yr.

LYALL, LYSLE, LISLE, LIOLL, or LOYAL, FRANCIS Boston 1637, a barber surg. of some importance, adm. of the ch. 29 Sept. 1639, and, in my judgment, may be that freem. of 13 May 1640, whose name is print. Seyle by Paige, in Geneal. Reg. III. and Shurtleff, in Col. Rec. as it had been in Winthrop Hist. Vol. II. Appx. of Ed. 1826; by w.
