MINTER, TOBIAS, New London, s. of Ezer, came from Newfoundland 1672, d. next yr. TRISTRAM, New London, a. bef. 1674, when his wid. m. Joshua Baker.
MIRABLE, Charlestown, had w. Elizabeth wh. was one of the friends of Matthews. But perhaps the true name was Marble, wh. see. Yet, in the will of George Knower, Mary Mirable is call. his d.
MIRIAM, JOHN, Boston, was a selectman 1691. See Meriam.
MIRICK, or MYRICK, BENJAMIN, Charlestown, s. of John, by w. Sarah had Benjamin, andb Sarah, bapt. 30 Jan. 1687. JAMES, Newbury 1656, had Hannah, b. 6 Feb. 1657; Abigail, 5 Sept. 1658, Joseph, 27 Apr. 1661; Isaac, 6 Jan. 1665; Timothy, 28 Sept. 1666; and Susanna, 20 Aug. 1670. Coffin says he was b. 1612, but it would have better pleased us to learn the time of his d. JAMES, Newbury, of the preced. perhaps, yet not so indicat. by Coffin, who says, by w. Hannah he had Benjamin, b. 16 Apr. 1683; James, 6 July 1684; but in the former line he had him 16 Apr. 1683; and John, 10 Sept. 1686. John, Charlestown, by w. Judith, unless this be, as I suspect, error for Hopestill, had Hopestill, b. 20 Feb. 1643; Benjamin, 22 June. 1644; and, perhaps, others. By sec. w. Hopestill (uncle's it be the first, as I suspect, for Hopestill M. is adm. of the ch. in Charlestown, 10 Sept. 1644) he had Sarah, 1 May 1657; Mercy, 3 Dec. 1658; and Abigail, b. 17 Feb. 1661. His d. Ann m. John Walker, bef. Oct. 1675, when she join. the ch. unless his w. were of d. Jacob Leager.
JOHN, Newton, perhaps s. the preced. m. 1682, Elizabeth d. of James Trowbridge, had Thankful, b. 24 Apr. 1685; Rebecca, 20 Apr. 1687; Lydia, 18 Feb. 1689, d. [[vol. 3, p. 219]] young; Samuel, 1 Mar. 1691; John, 30 Nov. 1694; Margaret; James, 26 Oct. 1696; Deborah; Elizabeth Aug. 1699; Elisha, 5 Mar. 1701; and Lydia, again, 7 July 1704; in the order giv. by Jackson; but Bond substitutes for Deborah, Sarah, 6 Mar. 1695, add. that she m. Jonathan Fuller, with wh. Jackson, 280, concurs. He was freem. 1685, k. at Groton, by the Ind. 21 July 1706, unless Butler in his Hist. be mistak. as Jackson, 366, renders prob. That very careful collector, p. 96, refers to Penhallow: for his extract; but in that writer I do not discov. the passage. Yet Homer, in his Hist. of N. had print. the same passage, 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. V. 273. It is curious, that both the other sufferers at G. on that day, were of N. I suppose they were part of a garrison at G. But this John d. 11 July 1706, and made his will 29 Apr. preced. "under a languish. sickness." Some mistake of the town was made. TIMOTHY, Newbury, youngest s. of the first James, m. 1696, Mary Lancaster, had Ezra, b. 31 Mar. 1697, Abigail, 26 Nov. 1698; and, perhaps, more.
MITCHELL, ANDREW, Charlestown, had Mary, bapt. 2 Dec. 1688; Abigail, 17 Feb. 1689; Sarah, Elizabeth 7 Jan. 1694; and Andrew, 28 Jan. 1695. His w. was Abigail. DAVID, Stratford, br. of Jonathan, came prob. with his f. 1635, in the James from Bristol, arr. at Boston 16 Aug. and accomp. his f. to Saybrook, thence to Wethersfield for some and Stamford, taught the h. at Watertown, perhaps Dec. 1649, at least was invit. for that object, and soon aft. rem. to Stratford, where certain. he was in 1665, when he had two s. but who was the mo. or when the f. d. are all unkn. Cothren, 634, names four s. Matthew, John, Jonathan, and; Abraham, and tho. the d. of the f. name of the mo. or b. of either of the four is sought in vain, he permits us to infer that the two ment. in 1665 may have been Abraham and Matthew, but that John was older than Abraham. In Nov. 1675 he was entrust. by the Council of war with import. affairs. EDWARD, Hingham, came in the Diligent, 1638, but we kn. no more of him, exc. that he was from Old Hingham.
EDWARD, Bridgewater, s. of Experience m. Mary, d. of Thomas Hayward, and in 40 yrs. by her had no ch. m. next, 1708, Alice, d. of major John Bradford, had Mary, b. 1709; Alice, 1714; and Edward, 7 Feb. 1716, wh. d. 23 Dec. 1801, the gr.f. of Nahum, H. C. 1789. He d. 1717, and his wid. m. deac. Joshuah Hersey of Hingham. EXPERIENCE, Plymouth, a youth, came in the Ann, 1623, had been one of the goodly comp. at Leyden, where he left a br. Thomas, who d. there. Perhaps he was under the care of Francis Cook, at least, he is of his comp. in partak. sh. of cattle 1627, and soon aft. m. his d. Jane, was of Duxbury aft. 1631, and long aft. rem. to Bridgewater, there d. 1689, aged above 80 yrs. His ch. were Elizabeth wh. m. 1645, [[vol. 3, p. 220] John Washburn; Thomas; Mary, m. 24 Dec. 1652, James Shaw, and d. 1679; Edward; Sarah; Jacob; John; and Hannah, but the order of b. is uncert. and so may be the mo. for he had sec. w. Mary. Sarah m. John Hayward; and Hannah m. Joseph Hayward, as his third w. GEORGE, Boston 1644, carpenter, by w. Mary had Elizabeth b. 26 Aug. 1645; Mary, 25 Aug. 1648; John, 3 June 1650; and Sarah, 8 Dec. 1652. JACOB, Dartmouth, s. of Experience, m. 7 Nov. 1666, Susanna, d. of Thomas Pope, had Jocab, Thomas, and Mary, all brot. up by their uncle Edward, aft. hims. and w. were k. 1675, in Philip's war, by the ind. JOHN, Kittery, seems by his inv. 28 May 1664, to have large prop. L784; but I kn. no more, exc. that his admor. was Elias Stileman.
JOHN, Hartford 1660, freem. 1667, d. 28 July 1683, leav. ch. Mary, aged 28; John, 25; Sarah, 21; Margaret, 19; Mable, 17; amd Miriam, 15. JOHN, Duxbury, youngest s. of Experience, m. 14 Dec. 1675, Mary, d. of Thomas Bonney, had Experience, b. 1676; and his w. d. the yr. foll. Next, 14 Jan. 1679, he m.

Gladly would I learn wh. this third w. was, and espec. the more prob. dates of one or two of the ch. JOHN, Woodbury, s. of David, by w. Elizabeth wh. d. 1730, had David, bapt. Nov. 1679, d. soon; David, again, Apr. 1681; Elizabeth Nov. 1683, d. young; Elnathan, Oct. 1686; John, Feb. 1689; Knell, Apr. 1691; Elizabeth again, May 1693; and Martha, Mar. 1697; as Cothern gives them, and says he d. 3 Jan. 1732.
JOHN, Newbury, s. of William of the same, m. 20 May 1680, Hannah Spofford, ahd Hannah, b. 12 Apr. 1681; Sarah, 26 Sept. 1682; John, 17 June 1685; and Sarah, again, 10 Apr. 1689. His w. d. in two wks. aft.; and he m. 15 Nov. 1697, Constance Moores, and d. 17 Dec. 1731. JONATHAN, Cambridge, came with his f. Matthew, in the James, from Bristol, 1635, being then a. 9 or 10 yrs. old, was bred at H. C. where 1647, he had his A. B. ord. 21 Aug. 1650, m. 19 Nov. foll. Margaret, wid. of Thomas Shepard, his predecess. but was bef. betrothed to Sarah, d. of Rev. John Cotton, wh. d. in Jan. preced. had Margaret, b. 26 Feb. 1653, d. next yr.; Nathaniel, 4 Mar. 1656, d. at 17 yrs.; John, 16 Mar. 1658, d. next yr.; Samuel, 14, bapt. 21 Oct. 1660, H. C. 1681, whose d. is not found in the catal. and he is the latest of the childr. in the ch. reg. of his f. Yet he certain. had Jonathan, 1687, wh. d. 14 Mar. 1695; an Margaret, again, wh. m. 13 June 1682, Stephen Sewall of Salem, and only thro. her, is the blood of the disting. ancest. come down. He d. 9 July 1668, in the "forty-third yr. of his age," says the Magnalia, IV.184, yet as Mather could not avoid [[vol. 3, p. 221]] an occassion of blunder, even for so famous a man, whom he calls matchless, he had on p. 166 of the same Book, told us he was b. 1624, Halifax, in the W. riding of Yorksh. In 1662, he, with Gookin, were made first licensers of the press in Mass. He had good est. the inv. being L786,17,9. Ever writer who has ment. the famous men of the early days of our country, has told of Mitchell, and the oversight of call. his f. Jonathan, instead of Matthew, by Sprague, in Annals of the American Pulpit, would seem too trivial to be noticed here, did not the minute statem. of his m. require correction: "Margaret S. daur. of his predecessor, by his first m;" seems to bear on its face, the stamp of exact truth.
But as accura. relat. is always desira. it may be told, the only d. of Shepard by his first w. d. inf. and this Margaret who m. Mitchell was the third w. of S. not his ch. MATTHEW, Charlestown, came 1635, with Rev. Richard Mather, in the James, of Bristol, bring. w. and ch. David, and Jonathan, perhaps more, rem. to Concord, and soon to Springfield, there sign. compact with Pynchon and others in May 1636, soon aft. to Saybrook for short time, where, in the Pequot war, he was protect. by Lyon Gardiner, but he says the Ind. took one of the "old man. and roasted him alive." He was in 1639 at Wethersfield a short time, and next yr. made their town clk. but soon went to Stamford, and in 1643, with Rev. Richard Denton, to Hempstead, L. I. perhaps back again, soon to Stamford, there d. in 1645. He was rep. in 1637, but not, as Mather makes him, one of the Assist. of the Col. that yr.
MATTHEW, Stratford, s. of David, of the same, rem. to Southbury, by Mary, youngest d. of John Thompson the first of Stratford, who d. 18 Jan. 1711, had Mary, bapt.
