THOMAS, Windsor, may be thot. to have rem. with Warham, from Dorchester, but no certainty is reach. by inquir. unless the conject. be adopt. that he and first Thomas Marshall were the same person. The first that can positive. be learn. is by a letter from him, as Marshfield, to Samuel Wakeman, 6 May 1641, on p. 12 of our Vol. I. of Reg. of Deeds, strange as the place is, where an extr. is insert. by Gov. Winthrop and next yr. he withdrew from the country, as by Conn. Rec. 14 Oct. 1642, when the Court appoint. trustees to manage his est. for use of the creditors. Perhaps he was lost at sea, but at least no more was ever heard of him. His wid. and fam. rem. to Springfield, the ch. being Samuel, bef. ment.; Sarah, wh. m. Thomas Miller, and ano. d.

JOHN, Andover 1667, perhaps was f. of Jacob, and Mary, Hannah, and Sarah, above ment. and of John; but means of certainty are beyond our reach, and all we know is that he had w.

MICHAEL, Boston, mariner, m. 12 Sept. 1656, Susanna, d. of Mr. Edward Holyoke of that pt. of Boston call. Rumney marsh, had Michael, b. 10 Feb. 1660. RICHARD, Casco 1646, m. a wid. Atwell, perhaps was of Scarborough, freem. 1668, d. early in 1673, his will of 11 Jan. being pro. in Apr. of that yr. In it he teaches us that he had w. Dorothy, s.-in-law Robert Corbin and his w. Lydia, and gives to Benjamin Atwell, wh. prob. had m. ano. a. perhaps dec. for he also gives to gr.ch. Joseph Atwell, and this Joseph, in 1679, then only eight yrs. old, is call. only heir. He brot. from Eng. two ds. of wh. Lydia m. Robert Corbin, and possib. the other was Mary, esecut. at tbe age of 22, in Boston, for murder of her illegit. ch. as told in Winthrop II. 302. See also, Willis, I. 134. RICHARD, Boston, merch. m. 1 Feb. 1654, Sarah, d. of John Tuttle of the same, had Mary, b. 7 June 1655; Sarah, 2 July 1657; and m. a. 1660, sec. w.

Lydia, 8 Feb. 1672. He d. betw. 19 July, the date of a deed to serve for his will, and 6 Nor. 1671, when admin. was giv. to his w. Perhaps he came in the Elizabeth and Ann, from London, 1635, aged 12, and may have [[vol. 3, p. 163]] been br. of John of B. RICHARD, Charlestown, a capt. d. 2 Nov. 1694, aged 62, and his wid. Elizabeth d. 7 Jan. 1726, aged 84, say the gr.stones; but he had prob. not liv. there most of his days, for the list of householders in 1678, Frothingham, 183, tho. it gives the prefix of respect, tells not tbe bapt. name, but indicates barely Mr. Martin's, and there is reason to think it did not mean either John's or Thomas's, and Coffin authorizes the conject. that he was of Newbury, had Richard, b. 8 Jan. 1674. A former w. Elizabeth d. 6 Oct. 1689; and the sec. m. 28 Nov. foll. was wid. of Joshua Edmonds.
ROBERT, freem. of Mass. 13 May 1640, was, perhaps, of Weymouth then, soon rem. to Rehoboth 1643, and Swansey. ROBERT, New Haven, had Mary, bapt. perhaps 24 May 1646; John, 28 May 1648; and Stephen, perhaps 13 May 1652, but for the first and last wrong days are giv. in the rec. of ch. Geneal. Reg. IX. 361. SAMUEL, Wethersfield 1646, went to New Haven, and m. the wid. Brace, but this may have been bef. his perman. sett. at W. at least in the ch. seating 11 Mar. 1647, at N. H. br. and sis. M. are ment. Her name was Phebe, d. of Mr. Bisby of London, who provid. for her and ch. buying est. at W. He had s. Samuel; and, perhaps, Richard; went to London 1652, soon ret. serv. in Philip's war as a lieut. and in Oct. 1677., had a gr. of 50 acres "to him and his heirs forever, prohibit. him the sale of the same, or any alienation thereof from his heirs," showing us that his courage was valued higher than his thrift. He a. 15 Sept. 1683.
SAMUEL, Andover, m. 30 Mar. 1676, Abigail Norton, had Samuel, wh. d. 1 Feb. 1683; was an ens. and d. 16 Nov. 1696.

Alice Ellet, m. 1 June 1650, had Abigail, b. 22 Aug. 1653; may have been of New London 1666, hav. prefix of respect, at least was not householder at Charlestown 1658.

THOMAS, Marlborough 1675, freem. 1690. WILLIAM, Reading 1641, one of the earliest selectmen, freem. 1653, perhaps rem. to Groton, there d. 23 Mar. 1673, his w. Mary, wh. had been wid. Lakin, hav. d. 14 Aug. 1669, made provis. of his will dated 6 Mar. bef. pro. 1 Apr. aft. more liberal. To his w's. ch. William and John Lakin, to the ch. of William L. and to sis. Allen and her childr. exc. Hannah, are bequests, to three neighbs. release of debts, and £10. is giv. to the town for purch. of a bell for the meeting-house. Fifteen of this name, says [[vol. 3, p. 164]] Farmer, US. had, in 1834, been gr. at the coll. of N. E. but as at Harv. was none, I think he may have includ. those who spell. the last syl. with y, two being, early at Harv. with this form, as very oft. in some rec. are the preced. found. Uniform use of that letter prob. belongs only to the New Hampsh. fam.
MARTYN, EDWARD, New Hampsh. 1674, may have been s. of John of Dover. RICHARD, Portsmouth, was one of the found. of the first ch. there 1671, rep. 1672 and 9, speaker of tbe ho. and a couns. of the Prov. 1680, d. 2 Apr. 1694. He had Richard, b. 10 Jan. 1660, H.

MARTUGAL, SAUNDERS, sw. 9 May 1667, as freem. of Conn. if Trumbull has correct. giv. the odd name in Col. Rec. II. 8. What town he liv. at is unkn. but in 1669, as this name is not among the freem. of any town, it may be thot. he was d. or rem.
MARVIN, JOHN, Lyme, eldest s. of the sec. Reynold, m. 7 May 1691, Sarah, d. of Henry Graham or Grimes, had Sarah; Mary; John, b. 9 Aug. 1698; Elizabeth; Joseph, 1703; Benjamin; Mehitable; and Jemima; and d. 11 Dec. 1711. His wid. m.

Maskell, m. 10 May 1660, Bethia Parsons (his claim to her seem. to me better than Thomas Haskell's or Thomas Marshall's, yet see Stiles, 698 and 735), had Bethia, b. 6 Mar. 1661; Thomas, 19 Mar. 1662, d. soon; Abigail, 17 Nov. 1663; Thomas, again, 2 Jan. 1666; John, 19 Nov. 1667; Elizabeth 19 Oct. 1669; and he d. 1671.

It is somewhere said, that he came 1639, and I will not controvert it; but he was only 77 at his d. 4 Mar. 1708. The w. had d. 2 Jan. 1708. He was a constable, and well dispos. to magnify his office, for amusing proof of which see Hutch. I. 254; wrote his name with ss. Mary m. Nov. 1678, Rev.

By a sec. w. he had Hezekiah, 3 May 1677, tho. the copious and exact. fam. geneal. could not furnish the name, either bapt. or surname; yet the deficiency is well suppl. by the last, --- Peter, 9 Nov. 1680; Rebecca, 10 Feb. 1682; Margaret, 21 Dec. 1683; Samuel, 11 Feb. 1686; Abigail, 3 Feb. 1689; Priscilla, 17 Sept. 1691; and Nehemiah, 24 Nov. 1693; all at S.

Emma, a wid. of Eastwell, Co. Kent, who came in the Hercules, 1635, and had gr. of ld. 1637, at Salem, may have been his mo. tho. no ch. in the ship's list of passeng. is giv. HENRY, Scituate 1643, perhaps rem. to Dorchester, and may be the freem. of 1650, aft. 1656 a brewer in Boston, wh. d. 1676, and in his will of 6 Oct. of that yr. pro. next mo.

Of ano. HUGH we may be led to inq. the resid. by the passage in Drake's Hist. of Boston, 418, of expedit. into the Ind. country, 1676, by one of this name, when we may justly presume, that our Watertown rep. was too old for such severe duty. JACOB, Boston, s. of Ralph, prob. the instrument maker, of wh. Judge Sewall notes the d. 9 Feb. 1695, by w. Rebecca had Elizabeth b. 29 July 1671, d. soon; Elizabeth again, 23 Apr. 1676; Hannah, 25 May 1678; Jacob, 23 Apr. 1680; Rebecca, 24 Aug. 1681; and Joseph, 9 Feb. 1684. JOHN, the patentee of N.

Jane to inherit his vexatious principality. She m. John Tufton, Esquire, had John, wh. d. without issue, as is told by Farmer, and Robert, who took the name of Mason.
JOHN, Dorchester, tho. thot. by some to have come 1630, with Winthrop prob. came early in 1632, was in Dec. of that yr. sent as lieut. with 20 men against a pirate at the E. for wh. in July foll. he was paid £10, and bec. capt. in Nov. aft. was first on the list of freem. 4 Mar. 1635, and disting. then by title of capt. rep. 1635 and 6, and this yr. rem. with Warham to Windsor, of great serv. in milit. and civ. life, finished the Pequot war, in 1637, being in chief com. rep. 1637 to 41, then Assist. to 59, then dep.-gov. for eight maj.-gen. and commiss. for the Congr. of N.

All that the diligence of Prince, the annalist, could gather to prefix to his Hist. of the Pequot war may be read in 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 122; and later inq. adds little; yet in Sparks's Amer. Biog. Vol. III. of 2d Series, is a copious [[vol. 3, p. 168]] biogr. of the great capt. writ. with much felicity, by the Rev. George E. Ellis.
