His w. d. early, and he took sec. w. Seaborn, or Sibborn, Gooding, or Goodwin, 22 Dec. 1670, had Daniel, b. 20 Dec. 1671; Samuel, 20 Sept. 1674; Sarah, 8 Oct. 1676; Dorcas and John, tw. 22 Dec. 1678; Israel, 17 July 1681; Rachel; and Ann. He prob. had been driv. by Ind. hostil. some yrs bef. to Salem, or Lynn,of wh. last place he is titled, when freem. 1680. By third w. m. 14 Apr. 1686, Damaris, wid. of Thomas Searle, he had three more ch. of wh. the last was Benjamin, b. 29 Sept. 1688; and d. 1710. Wilis II. 8. SAMUEL, Salem, s. of Joseph the first, m. 1 Feb. 1677, Rachel Guppy, had Samuel, b. 12 Dec. 1677; John, 4 Oct. 1679; Stephen, 9 May 1681; Rachel, 5 Aug. 1683; John, again, 25 Dec. 1685; Nathaniel, 4 Aug. 1687; Sarah, May 1691; Rachel, again, 11 Sept. 1693; and Joseph, 9 Feb. 1697; and d. Feb. 1718. THOMAS, Salem, s. of Benjamin prob. or perhaps of the sec. David, tho. less likely, m. Mary, eldest d. of Timothy Lindall. One Judith P. aged 16, came in the Planter from London 1635, with James Hayward, wh. m. her. Both were sev. of Nicholas Davis of Charlestown.
PHIPS, or, in mod. days, PHIPPS, JAMES, from Bristol, eng. a gunsmith, sat down near the mouth of the Kennebeck riv. bef. 1649, hav. had very many ch. by the same w. 21 s. and 5 ds. in all, if credulity be sufficiently dilated to embrace the story, one of the youngest, the celebr. Sir. William (Equival. to all the s. in the opin. of his biogr.), being b. 2 Feb. 1651, this latter fact being more prob. than the numb. wh. however Mather asserts in two places, Magn. II. 38 and III. 165. tho. in the sec. place, we are naturally led to distrust his assert. by the manner of its introduct. to the support of his enormous marvel of John Serman's Felicity. Had he once more declared it, he would perhaps have accompan. his story with some incident to compel disbelief. Whether ten or twenty of the boys were b. on the other side of the water, he d. when William [[vol. 3, p. 420]] was young, and his mo. liv. yet the name of no. of no other s. exc. John, or d. exc. Mary, Margaret, and Ann. was ever told. Of twenty-one s. the regard for males in nine cases out of ten, so greatly exceed, that for females, we are justify. in looking for the names of more than two, especial, as three out of the five ds. count. by Mather, find place in his will of their br. the Gov.
JOHN, Reading, by Eaton classed among the early sett. of wh. it is desira. to kn. more, that something might be said beyond guess, that he was b. at Charlestown. Had any date been affex. we should be able to conject. that he was, or was not, that JOHN, s. of James, wh. had John, prob. b. near the mo. of Kennebeck wh. accomp. his uncle William 1686, in search of the treasure ship. No more is kn. of him. But some amus. tradit. as to the defeat of testamenta. benefact. to the s. by Sir William, may be read in Morse, who would make up for such injustice, by giv. to his s. Jeddediah near ten yrs. longer life than belong. to him. Such is the tendency to magnify old age. *SAMUEL, Charlestown, s. of Solomon of the same, taught the gr.sch. m. 8 Aug. 1676, Mary Phillips, d. of Henry, wh. d. early; and by sec. w. Catharine had Samuel, bapt. 21 May 1682, d. soon; and Samuel, again, 10 Feb. 1684; was rep. 1692, at the first sess. under new chart. Reg. of deeds, and Clk. of the County, and d. at the age of 70, Aug. 1725. Very strange seems the error of Farmer, in his Memoir of Grad. of H. C. making Gov. Danforth's d. Mary his w. when she belong. to his br. Solomon.
SOLOMON, Charlestown 1641, carpenter, was adm. of the ch. 15 Jan. and freem. 18 May 1642, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 23 Apr. 1643; Solomon; Samuel, H. C. 1671, bef. ment.; Mehitable, wh. d. 15 July 1657; Mehitable, again, 10 Dec. 1657; and Mehitable, again, 6 June 1659, if my transcrip. of rec. be right; Joseph, bapt. 13 Oct. 1661; and perhaps others; d. 25 July 1671, aged 52. His will of 4 May 1670 makes w. Elizabeth extrix, provides for the s. Samuel at coll. Solomon, and Joseph, beside d. Elizabeth Ray and her ch. d. Mary, mean. perhaps Solomon's w. and her ch. yet unb. The wid. d. 1 Nov. 1688. SOLOMON, Charlestown, s. of the preced. m. Mary, d. of Dept. Gov. Thomas Danforth, and they join, the ch. 3 Apr. 1670, was freem. 11 May foll. had Mary, b. 3 July 1670; Solomon, 10 Jan. 1675; Thomas, 22 Nov. 1676, H. C. 1695, I think (tho. Farmer gave him to Samuel, as he had also his mo.); Elizabeth 27 Feb. 1681; Jonathan, 7 Jan. 1683; Elizabeth again, 5 Jan. 1684; and it is observ. that this fam. used pp. in its name punctiliously, while single p. served for the Gov. He d. suddenly, tho. I see not the date. Opposite cause may be read in Morse, 195, who makes the Bapt. regard it as a judgm. upon him for purch. ld. taken from one of their commun. for paym. of a fine; but Phipps hims. said "he was bewitched," and his opin. is equally to be respected in our days. ? WILLIAM, Boston, s. of James, b. says his panegyrist, [[vol. 3, p. 421]] "at a despicable planta. on the riv. Kennebeck," wh. is by Folsom, a soberer writer, said to be on the W. side, now Phipsburg, m. Mary, wid. of John Hull (not the mint-master), d. of Roger Spencer of Saco, but had no ch. was driv. by Ind. hostil. to Boston 1676, and I discov. him there in command of a trading vessel, 1677; he prevail. by his earnest desire to hunt up a Spanish wreck, in getting, 1683, a king's ship, the Algier Rose, and in a contempo. Memoir of Sir John Brampston (s. of the old judge, who sat in the immortal cause of John Hampden for the ship money), I find this condensed descript. of him, as "a sea capt. who was will skill, in mathemat. and had acquaint. hims. in India with some that had the art of diving; having some guess where the ship perished, apprehend. he could recov. the treas." Good luck attend. his undertak. but a mod. Eng. author of distinct. wh. ascrib. to him the invent. of a diving-bell for his purpose, ought to know that Edward Bendall had used his diving-bell successful. in Boston harbor, near eight yrs. bef.
Sir William was b. and may read in Winthrop Hist. of N. E. that the noble machine was next yr. employed at St. Kitts. For his success he was knight. by James II. 28 June 1687, and after his return here, was made, by Andros, Sheriff of N. E. Happi, he join. the ch. of Cotton Mather 8 Mar. 1690, was freem. a fortnight later, and, as his spiritual guide exulting. tells, was bapt. 23d of that mo. this being almost a yr. after the revo. against that power that made him sheriff, and in May 1690 he conducted the little attack, by only seven hundred men, on the French of Nova Scotia, with success, and was chos. an Assit. at the ensuing elect. The great expedit. that sail. in Aug. foll. against Quebec, was project. by him, "as well formed an enterprise," says Mather, "as perhaps was ever made by the N. E." tho. in this, the world's opinion has not concur. He was not content to have the nautical control merely, in wh. his experience could have been useful, but, with greater generosity than skill or propriety, assum. the direction of the land forces, thereby saving the reputa. of Walley, our ch. milit. officer, to the injury of his own. on the failure of this Quixotic campaign, he went to London, 1691, with intent. to seek aid from the new king in ano. attempt upon the bulwark of French empire in the world; but was most lucki. divert. from that pursuit, by the appointm. as Gov. in the new chart. on the recommend. of Increase Mather to the king. With Mather and the chart. he arr. at Boston 14 May 1692, but his incapac. was soon discern. and in two yrs. for indecent or boisterous conduct he was recall. from the prov. to London, and there d. 18 Feb. 1695. A monum. to his mem. stands in the ch. of St. Mary Woolnoth.
In Mass. the history of his admin. is the melancholy monum. for his public breach of the peace was a scandal that never before any other ch. magistr. and the horrible delusion of the witch-[ [vol. 3, pp. 422-423, missing in the orig. electronic version were provided by Warren C. Wetmore, May 8, 1999] ] [[vol 3, p. 422]] craft tradegy, tho. not imput. to him, might by him have been partially restrain. if not effect. counteract. As he never had a ch. the preposterous fable never heard of bef. this generat. that Sir Constantine Phips, the Tory lawyer, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, was his s. and the progenit. of Lord Mulgrave of the last century, may be duly esteem. It must be regret. that so respectab. an author as Smiles in his enumerat. of disting. mem. of the peerage, should have adopt. so fabulous an origin for the Normanby fam. See Self Help, p. 169. With his com. in May 1692, I have prefer. to close the enumerat. of N.
