Benjamin Newbury of Windsor, had Mary, b. 1676, d. soon; Samuel, 1679; Abigail, 1682; Sarah, 1685; Preserved, 1691; [[vol. 3, p. 158]] Lydia; and Mercy; was freem. 1690. SAMUEL, Boston 1681 had w. Ruth, freem. 1691. THOMAS, Dorchester 1634, freem. 6 May 1635, rem. it is thot. to Windsor; was rep. in Mar. and Apr. 1638; but no more is kn. with certainty. In Stiles, Hist. 698, he is said to m. 2 Mar. 1637, Mary Drake, wh. may have been d. of the first John; and we might suppose, from the same line, the same man m. 10 May 1660, Bethia Parsons, but the darkness is palpable, upon the same page, where he teach. that Thomas Maskell m. that day that same woman; and great distrust springs up, when we see him, p. 735, give the same woman, the same day, to Thomas Haskell.
THOMAS, Boston, shoemaker, or ferryman, or both, call. widower on adm. to the ch. 31 Aug. 1634; freem. 4 Mar. 1635, had brot. from Eng. prob. s. Thomas and Samuel, ds. Sarah and Frances; and here by sec. w. Alice had Eliakim, b. 1 Mar. 1637, yet not bapt. until 15 Apr. 1638, no doubt on acco. of the antinom. quarrel in the ch. for acting with the major part of wh. in support of Wheelwright, he was requir. in Nov. 1637 to surrender his arms; but like most of the rest, thus abused, regain. high esteem, was selectman 1647-58, deac. and rep. 1650, and d. perhaps 1663. Frances m. 16 July 1652, Joseph Howe; and Sarah m. James Penniman. Great indulgence must be granted to investigat. a. this name, for ano.
THOMAS, Boston 1643, a tailor, adm. of the ch. 17 Feb. 1644, had Thomas, bapt. 7 Jan. 1644, 5 days old; freem. in May of same yr. prob. and in June foll. was excom. I think he went to New Haven, aft. recov. in 1646, the favor of his former fellow-worshippers. THOMAS, Reading, came, prob. in the James from London 1635, aged 22, had Hannah, b. 7 June 1640; Samuel, 1 Sept. 1643, d. in one wk.; Abigail; Sarah, d. young; Thomas and Rebecca, tw. 20 Feb. 1648; Elizabeth; Sarah, again, 14 Feb. 1655; was freem. 1653, a lieut. and aft. very long deliberat. by me, is thot. to be that man of Lynn, always call. capt. who there had Joanna, 14 Sept. 1657; John, 14 Feb. 1660; Ruth, 14 Aug. 1662; and Mary, 25 May 1665; was of ar. co. 1640, and, perhaps, freem. 4 June 1641; certain. rep. 1659, 60, 3, 4, 7, and 8; d. 23 Dec. 1689; and his wid. Rebecca d. Aug. 1693. Hannah m. at Lynn, 17 June 1659, John Lewis; Sarah m. 15 July 1674, Ebenezer Stocker; and Mary m. 7 Apr. 1685, Edward Baker. Lewis seems to me, to have confus. f. and s. and to have misled Farmer. See p. 92 of Lewis, Ed. 2d. But for what John Dunton, in Life and Errors, says of this capt. hav. been one of Cromwell's soldiers, I am compell. to suspect, that the author mistook his jolly host, or that the veteran designedly impos. on him. THOMAS, Salem 1657. THOMAS, Middletown 1669, then offered as freem. may have had Thomas, Joel, and Mary, wh. m. 27 July 1665, John Cutlin, but it is not certain.
THOMAS, d. at Northampton, [[vol. 3, p. 159]] 3 June 1663, but we are sure he was only a casual visitor. THOMAS, Andover, ought to have more told of him than is found in Farmer, that he d. Jan. 1708, almost 100 yrs. old, and that Joanna d. there in May foll. aged a 100. Perhaps it was his d. Mary wh. m. 6 July 1659, Robert Russell. THOMAS, Charlestown 1684, who gains this place, as does he of Salem 1637, on authority of Barry.
THOMAS, Hartford, had sis. Mary, wh. m. John Catlin, but who was their f. is not ascert. He had Mary, b. 10 May 1670; John, 24 Feb. 1672; William, 21 Apr. 1674; Thomas, 3 Oct. 1676; Elizabeth 23 Oct. 1678; Sarah, 27 Mar. 1681; and Benjamin, 22 Feb. 1684; and d. 1692. His s. Thomas, a mariner, m. aft. the date of his will, 15 Feb. 1697, Mary Chantrel of Boston, spinster, and she had it pro. 19 Sept. 1700, as his wid. in wh. he gave memo. to his sis. Elizabeth spinster, and bro. Benjamin, and uncle John Catlin, all of Hartford, as he also styles hims. but all resid. to his beloved fr. M. C. THOMAS, Windsor, s. of capt. Samuel, m. 3 Mar. 1686, Mary Drake, d. prob. of John of the same, had Thomas, b. 14 Jan. 1687, d. young; Mary, 21 Feb. 1689; Samuel, 23 July 1691; Thomas, 6 Feb. 169-4; Rachel, 12 Apr. 1696; Catharine, 11 Apr. 1699; John, 3 Apr. 1701; Noah, 24 Apr. 1703, d. young; Daniel, 1705; Benjamin, 8 Aug. 1707, d. in few mos.; and Eunice, 3 May 1709.
WILLIAM, Salem 1638, had then, says Felt, gr. of ld. He prob. came in the Abigail, 1636, from London, aged 40. WILLIAM, Charlestown, m. 8 Apr. 1666, Mary. d. of William Hilton, wh. d. 13 July 1678, aged a. 33, had William, and Mary, bapt. 4 Feb. 1672, she hav. join. the ch. a few days bef.; John, 20 Apr. 1673; Edward, 16 Apr. 1676; and; by sec. w. Lydia had Samuel, bapt. 31 Aug. 1684; Hannah, 25 Sept. 1687. Twelve of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at N. E. coll. half of them at Harv. three at Yale, and two at Dart.
MARSHCROFT, MASHCROFT, or MASCROFT, DANIEL, Roxbury, m. 23 May 1665, Mary, d. of John Gorton, prob. liv. in some other place, there had Elizabeth until d. of the f. of his u. aft. wh. I find in the rec. of R. Hannah, b. 6 May 1677; but perhaps he rem. again to some neighb. town, and had Samuel, brot. to bapt. with Mehitable, 3 Feb. 1684, when we see in rec. of b. only that of the d. 28 Feb. bef. He had also Mary, whose b. is not kn. but she d. 8 June 1688; and he d. perhaps bef. mid. age, and his w;a. d. 30 June 1703. Elizabeth m. at R. 18 Mar. 1700, Samuel Spencer; and Hannah m. 16 July 1701, Samuel Frost. But both the hs. were, I suppose, of ano. town.
