Grace m. 27 Nov. 1667, Thomas Oliver; and Elizabeth m. 4 May 1675, Thomas Aldrich of Dedham. The epitaph that in Homer's Hist. of N. is said to be on his gr.-st. belongs to somebody else, lying 45 feet from the grave of the capt. whose head and foot stone have plain inscript. as I am assur. by the highest authority.
THOMAS, Cambridge, in the part now Newton, prob. br. of James, possib. neph. of the preced. b. in Eng. it is thot. m.

Ellis, in his Hist. of R. quotes from the ch. rec. the ment. of his sufferings and d. closing with a clause that proves how variously our ancient MS. may read, "leaving a good cup of gentleness behind him," when my version of the words in Italic is "SAVOR OF GODLINESS."

A portion of the descend. of Henry, change the two last letters for ss, but the distinct. was not, for the first hundred yrs. uniform, and Valentine's progeny always used these. In both forms, nineteen had been gr. in 1834 at Harv. four at Yale, and five at other N. E. coll. and of ten clerg. eight were of Harv. two of Yale.

JOSEPH, New Haven, a propr. 1685, may have been gr.s. of William, tho. it may not. be kn. wh. s. was his f. or he may have been a resid. much earlier, and h. of that Mary wh. had there bapt. Hackaliah and Eliasaph, tw. 9 Apr. 1643; Joseph, 24 Jan. 1647; Mary, and Sarah, not perhaps tw. 24 July 1664. ROBERT, New Haven 1646, had been serv. of Richard Church, was single, when he made his will, 1648, in wh. no ment. of any relat. of his name is to be seen. ROGER, Ipswich 1648, a tanner, came in the Elizabeth from London 1635, aged 21, d. perhaps at Lynn, 20 Jan. 1666. SAMUEL, Andover, m. 27 May 1672, Susanna Gutterson, and tho. her d. is not ment. this same man, m. 2 Apr. 1694, Sarah Bridges. At Andover is rec. the m. of Nicholas Holt, 21 May 1666, with "wid.

I suppose mo. of these latter ch. was a d. of Robert Seabrook, wh. gave his s. Jehiel P. and Thomas Fairchild, jr. his home lot. He prob. d. not long after date of his will, 9 July 1647, in wh. he speaks of childr. of the first and sec. w. but does not enable us to disting. them, and by conject. I should make of the ch. brot. from Eng. the greater part if not all by first w. three s. and three ds. Edward, Daniel, John, Elizabeth Sarah, and Mary; but of the ds. refers to one as w. of Joseph Alsop, prob. Elizabeth to ano. as w. of William Meeker, prob. Sarah; and we, therefore, may well suppose that Mary was then unm. His wid. Mary m. Thomas Kimberly. He owned est. in Giggleswick, Co. York, in the most W. part of the W. Riding. In that parish of the hill country were b. the parents of the celebr. William Paley, and of its high sch. his f. was master. Sev. towns in Eng. are call.

JOHN, is the name of a soldier in Gallop's comp. 1690, but resid. is unkn. JOHN, Watertown, br. of James, may have sett. Bond thinks, at Lancaster. JOSEPH, Salem, k. by the Ind. 15 Dec. 1675, in the Narrangaset fight, says Felt II. 505; but whose s. he was is not told; yet possib. of Walter.

MATTHEW, Charlestown 1654, of wh. I kn. only that by w. Elizabeth he had Joseph, b. 23 Mar. 1656, and he was a householder in 1658.

RICHARD, or PRITCHARD, BENJAMIN, Milford, 1713, may have been s. of Roger. HUGH, Gloucester 1614-45, rem. to Roxbury, freem. 18 May 1642, had, by w.

In giv. deed of his est. some yrs. later, his attys. describe him as of Broughton, Denbighsh. wh. perhaps was the place of his nativity. Bef. the gen. introd. of surnames, the progenit. of this fam. would be represent. ap Richard, i. e. s. of Richard. JOHN, Topsfield, s. perhaps of William, was freem. 1686. JOSEPH, Milford, perhaps s. of Roger, d. a. 1676.

PRIEST, DEGORY, Plymouth 1620, d. in few days aft. land. from the Mayflower, on 1 Jan. 1621; and his w. wh. was, says Gov. Bradford, sis. of Mr. Allerton, and their childr. came after. He was formerly thot. the first m. of any of the Leyden exiles, but the rec. there shows that his intent was pub. 4 Oct. 1611, and the m. with Sarah Vincent, wid. of John of London, 4 Nov. foll. and we kn. that both Isaac Allerton and his sis. had a few wks. earlier been m. I obs. on the Dutch rec. that aft. hear. of the d. of Priest so early at P. his wid. m. 13 Nov. of that same yr. one, wh. was, in my opin. the Cuthbert Cuthbertson, wh. brot. her and the ch. in the Ann.

EMANUEL, Marblehead 1668, kn. only as sign. with JOHN, perhaps his br. against impost. JAMES, Weymouth, freem. 10 May 1643, and tho. twice insert. in the list, we may be confid. as the same carelessness attaches to two other names, that only one man is intend. had James, b. 8 May 1640; and by w. Elizabeth had Lydia, b. 12 Feb. 1658, d. young; and Lydia, again, 16 Mar. 1662; and d. at Salem, 1664. JOHN, Weymouth 1657.
