Bucks, tho. fam. tradit. has the name of a place in Co. Warwick, where it is unkn. freem. 1647, says Farmer by mistake, tho. true it is he was that yr. rec. into the ch. as had been his w. in 1641, d. 30 Dec. 1662.

JONATHAN, Salem vill. freem. 1690, br. of the preced. by. w.

His youngest s. oft. call. old Put, was that celebr. Gen. wh. d. at Brooklyn, Conn. 19 May 1790. NATHANIEL, Salem vil. s. of the first John, b. in Eng. was adm. of the ch. 1648, but his name is not in freemen's list, m. 3 Sept. 1652, Elizabeth Prince, had Samuel, b. 18 Feb. 1653; Nathaniel, 24 Apr. 1655; John, 26 Mar. 1657; Joseph, 29 Oct. 1659; Elizabeth 11 Aug. 1662; Benjamin, 24 Dec. 1664; and Mary, 15 Sept. 1688; was rep. 1690 and 1, d. 23 July 1700, aged a. 79. His w. d. 14 June 1688, in her 60th yr. Perhaps he had sec. w. d. of John Gedney. Elizabeth wh. d. bef. her f. m. a Flint, perhaps John; and Mary, [[vol. 3, p. 497]] w. of John Tufts, John, and Benjamin, were the only ch. that surv. him.
SAMUEL, Salem, prob. eldest s. of the preced. had w. Elizabeth and d. Elizabeth and d. early in 1676, perhaps in the war. THOMAS, Lynn, eldest s. of first John, b. in Eng. early rem. to Salem, was freem. 18 May 1642, m. 17 Oct. 1643, Ann, d. of Edward Holyoke, had Ann, b. 25 Aug. 1645, wh. m. 18 Jan. 1667, the sec.

THOMAS, Salem, s. of the preced. was freem. 1680; m. 25 Nov. 1678, Ann, youngest d. of George Carr, had Ann, b. 18 Oct. foll.; Thomas, 9 Feb. 1681; Elizabeth 29 May 1683; Ebenezer, 25 July 1685; Deliverance, 8 or 11 Sept. 1687; Abigail; Timothy, bapt. 30 Oct. 1692; Susanna, 1694; and Seth; and d. 24 May 1699. His wid. d. 8th of next mo. Sev. of this name stood in most unhap. distinct. in the melancho. witchcr. delus. as witness. on one or ano. indictm. 1692, viz. Thomas, in 8 cases, Edward in 7, John in 6, ano. Thomas in 4. See Essex Inst. II. 191. Thirteen of this fam. had, in 1832, been deac. deac. of the first ch. of Danvers; and of the name pervert. sometimes, most flagitious. to Putmun, as vulgar. sound. in 1828, had been twenty-five gr. at Harv. two at Yale, and seven at other N. E. coll.
PYGAN, PYGON, PIGGIN, or PIGGON, ALEXANDER, New London, 1665, perhaps earlier, from Norwich, Co. Norf. m. 17 June 1667, Judith, d. of William Redfield, had Sarah, b. 23 Feb. 1670; and Jane, Feb. 1671. His w. d. 30 Apr. 1678; and in short time he rem. to Saybrook, there was an innhold. m. 15 Apr. 1684, Lydia, wid. of Samuel Boyes, had only Lydia, b. 10 Jan. 1685, and went back to N.

In the modest, model, memoir of that clerg. by Miss Caulkins, the first artic. of 4 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. some particulars of his f.-in-law, the only male of this name may be read.
PYNCHON, or PINCHEON, JOHN, Springfield, only s. of William, b. in Eng. 1625, brot. with three sis. and their mo. by his f. in the fleet with Winthrop 1630, m. 30 Oct. Hartford, rec. says 6 Nov. 1645, Amy, d. of George Wyllys of Hartford, wh. d. 9 Jan. 1699, had Joseph, b. 26 July 1646, H. C. 1664; John, 15 Oct. 1647; Mary, 28 Oct. 1650; William, 11 Oct. 1653, d. in few mos.; and Mehitable, 22 Nov. 1661, d. young. He was freem. 1648, rep. 1659, 62, 3, and 4, in 1665 an Assist. and ever aft. to the abolit. of the old form of governm. 1686; next of the Counc. to Andros, major of the Hampsh. reg. from its format. and [[vol. 3, p. 498]] during the usurp. of A. call. coll. and was the chief man in all the W. yet Mather unwisely dictat. to the king who took somebody else for the honor of counc. in his new chart. 1692, but the people next yr. correct. that blunder, and he was chos. until 1702, every yr. exc. 1699; and Phips made him Judge of Pro. in June 1692. He d. 17 Jan. 1703. Mary m. 6 Aug. 1670, Joseph Whiting of Westfield, as the rec. has it, but Goodwin's scrupul. Geneal. says 5 Oct. 1669.
JOHN, s. of the preced. was two yrs. stud. at H. C. liv. at Boston 1673 rem. to Ipswich, there m. Margaret, d. of Rev. William Hubbard, had John, Margaret, and William, all b. there, rem. to Springfield, where his w. d. 11 Nov. 1716; was lieut. col. clk. of the Courts and Regist. of deeds, and d. 25 Apr. 1721. JOSEPH, Springfield, br. of the preced. a physician, was rep. 1681, and 2, but in this last yr. d. 30 Dec. unm. at Boston. WILLIAM, Roxbury, an Assist. came in the fleet with Winthrop 1630, had been assoc. with the patentees, 1628, wh. purch. from the Plymouth comp. that yr. and named to office by the royal chart. of 4 Mar. 1629; brot. four ch. Ann, Mary, John, and Margaret, with their mo. says the rec. of Roxbury ch. of wh. his name is first. His w. d. in the first season, bef. ret. of the sh. in wh. they came; and aft. some yrs. he m. Frances Sanford, a grave matron of the ch. of Dorchester, and a. 1636, rem. to found the town of Springfield, so named, prob. from the place of his resid. near Chelmsford in Old Eng. He was a man of great enterprise, and highly honored as Treasr. bef. his leav. the seacoast, and as Couns. after, until his publicat. of the dangerous judgm. as to religion, wh. he had formed 30 yrs. bef. For this he suffered indignity in 1651, when his book was by our governm. ordered to be burned, and lest the same form of purificat. might reach to the author, he went home, as more freedom was enjoyed in his native ld. See the letter, in full, to Sir H. Vane, from our Gov. Endicott and his council of Assist. in 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 35. At Wraisbury, on the Thames, near famous Runnymede, in Co. Bucks, he d. Oct. 1662, in 72d or 74th yr. his w. having d. there 10 Oct. 1657. Ann m. Henry Smith, s. by her first h. of the sec. w. of her f.; Margaret m. Dec. 6, 1644, capt. William Davis of Boston; and Mary m. 20 Nov. 1640, capt. Elizur Holyoke, and d. 26 Oct. 1657. Four of this name had been gr. at Harv. and three at Yale, 1825.
PYNE, JAMES, Hartford 1647, may have been only trans. inhab. there or at Fairfield. See Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 150, 158. THOMAS, the freem. of Mass. 6 May 1635, was, by Farmer, thought to be the same as Pinney, wh. does not to me seem prob.
QUARLES, WILLIAM, Ipswich 1678, prob. came in from Salisbury, or some other town, where in 1665 he was 18 yrs. old, but no more is kn. [[vol. 3, p. 499]] of him, exc. that his Inv. is found of 14 Mar. 1690. WILLIAM, Ipswich, perhaps s. of the preced. but of wh. I learn nothing exc. by his will of est. among Prob. rec. after dec. 10 Apr. 1719, when wd. Mary, eldest s. William, and other s. Robert and Francis, and other relat. are ment. It is possible from adopt. his name for one of his s. that he was of kin to Quarles, the puritan poet. Yet in Boston Joanna was m. by Gov. Bellingham to Richard Smith of Lancaster, 2 Aug. 1654; tho. no occur. of the name can be found for more than 80 yrs. after the sett. of the town, either in births, or deaths, or in the public reg. of deeds or of wills.
QUELCH, BENJAMIN, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had Nathaniel, b. 9 Dec. 1692; and Benjamin, 25 Aug. 1694; prob. rem. soon, as he is not in the list of inhab. 1695.
QUELVES, ROBERT, is the impossib. name writ. by the Secreta. in our Col. Rec. for Oct. 1645 (the bungler was Increase Nowell), among the petnrs. for a new planta. that our rulers would have gained from R. I. or Providence jurisdict. No doubt it was Twelves, of Braintree, the freem. of 1663, and in later vols. of the rec. restitut. was made in place of the false letters.
QUICK, NATHANIEL, New Hampshire, d. 1677. Kelly. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1636, a mariner, as seems if from Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 6, rem. to Newport, where he was adm. an inhab. 27 Dec. 1638. Prob. his relig. opin. or those of his friends led to that, and he sold ho. and ld. June 1644. Ann Q. of Charlestown, perhaps his mo. sold her ho. and ld. in Apr. 1640.
QUIDDINGTON, JOSEPH, one of the soldiers k. by the Ind. 19 Oct. 1675, at Hatfield, but of what town he had been inhab. is unkn. ABRAHAM, Boston, perhaps s. of the preced. by w. Sarah had Elizabeth bapt. 31 Dec. 1682, but her b. is not found in the rec. of the town, so that I infer, he came in from the neighbor. He had also Ann, bapt. 1 Feb. 1685, and was of the 3d or O. S. ch. but he no more is heard of. His d. Ann m. 14 Oct. 1703, Thomas Holland.
QUILTER, JOSEPH, Ipswich 1679, perhaps s. of Mark the first, is ment. in the valu. pamphlet of 1689, Revo. in N. E. justif. p. 38. MARK, Ipswich 1637, came prob. with Rev. Nathaniel Rogers the yr. bef. bring. some ch. and d. perhaps, 1654, his will being of 7 Feb. in that yr. His ch. were Joseph, Mark, Mary, Rebecca, and Sarah; the two first may have been b. in Eng. His d. Mary is nam. in the will of Rev. N. Rogers, 3 July 1655, as his maid serv. MARK, Ipswich, s. of the preced. m. Frances, d. of Richard Swan of Rowley. He was b. a. 1630, and his will is of 4 Nov. 1678.
QUIMBY, or QUINBY, JOHN, Stratford 1654, had one ch. b. there, but [[vol. 3, p. 500]] after some yrs. rem. and was one of the patentees of West Chester in 1664, where the fam. has contin. ROBERT, Salisbury 1663, had Lydia, b. 22 Jan. 1658; William, 11 June 1660; John, 7 Sept. 1665; and Thomas, 8 Feb. 1668; and prob. d. 1677. Lydia m. 10 Apr. 1674, William Holdridge. WILLIAM, Amesbury, perhaps br. perhaps s. of the preced. took o. of fidel. 20 Dec. 1677.
QUINCY, DANIEL, Boston, goldsmith, eldest s. of Edmund the sec. ar. co. 1675, m. 9 Nov. 1682, Ann or Hannah, d. of Rev. Thomas Shepard of Charlestown, had Ann, b. 1 June 1685; and John, 21 July 1689, H. C. 1708; and d. 10 Aug. of the yr. foll. his will of 4 Apr. 1690, being pro. 18 Sept. aft. His wid. m. 7 Jan. 1701, Rev. Moses Fiske as his sec. w and d. 24 July 1708. His d. Ann m. John HoIman, wh. may have been the gr. of H. C. 1700; and his only s. was speaker of the ho. of Reps. 1729-39, many yrs. of his majesty's council, and d. 13 July 1767. EDMUND, Boston, arr. 4 Sept. 1633 with John Cotton; making it prob. that he came from the same Co. in Lincoln, tho. really he was of Wigsthorpe Co. Northampton, s. of Edmund, and bapt. 30 May 1602, and was, with w. Judith m. 14 July 1623, adm. of the ch. in Nov. 1633, within four mos. five of his serv. joined it; freem. 4 Mar. 1634, and rep. at the first Gen. Ct. of Mass. 14 May in that yr. rec. gr. of ld. in Braintree, 1635, still enj. by his descend. and d. soon aft. in his 33rd. yr. His wid. m. Moses Paine, wh. d. 1643, and in few yrs. she m.

EDMUND, Braintree, only s. of the preced. b. in Eng. a. 1628, bapt. 15 Mar. of that yr. m. 26 July 1648, Joanna, d. of wid. Joanna Hoar, and sis. of Presdt. H. had Mary, b. 4 Mar. 1650; Daniel, 7 Feb. 1651, but thro. misread. of the numerals in Advertisem. to Hull's Americ. Diary, p.117, by the scrupu. Editor of Archaeol. Amer. repeat. p. 275, is made five mos. too early, for the rec. Geneal. Reg. XI. 333, shows the truth to be not 12 (7) 1650, but 7 (12) 1650; John, 5 Apr. 1652, d. young; Joanna, 16 Apr. 1654; Judith, 25 June 1655; Elizabeth 28 Sept. 1656; Edmund, 9 July 1657, d. at 4 mos.; Ruth, 29 Oct. 1658; Ann, wh. d. 3 Sept. 1676, aft. 3 days illness, aged 13, as her gr.-st. tells; and Expeerience. His w. d. 16 May 1680 (misprint. 1650 in letter of J. Q. Adams, Arch. Amer. III. 276), in her 55th yr. and she m. in Dec. foll. Elizabeth d. of Hon. Daniel Gookin, wid. of John Eliot, jr. wh. d. 30 Nov. 1700, by her had Edmund, again, b. 21 Oct. 1681, H. C. 1699; and Mary, again, a. 1684, He was freem. 1665, major and lieut.-col. of the Suffk. regim. rep. 1670, 3, 5, 9, last in the trying times, May 1692 and d. 7 Jan. 1698, in his 70th yr. His will of 11 Dec. preced. was pro. 31 Mar. foll. Of his ds. the first Mary m. Ephraima Savage, had [[vol. 3, p. 501]] for ch. and d. 7 Oct. 1676; Joanna m. David Hobart of Hingham, bore him five ch. and d. 18 May 1695; Judith m. Rev. John Rayner jr. of Dover, wh. d. soon aft. 21 Dec. 1676, and she d. 8 Mar. 1679; Elizabeth m. 1681, Rev. Daniel Gookin of Shirborne; Ruth m. 19 Oct. 1686, John Hunt of Weymouth; Experience m. William Savil, surv. him, and d. late in 1706, or early in 1707, when admin. was giv. to her br. Edmund; and the sec. Mary m. Rev. Daniel Baker of Shirborne, and d. 29 Mar. 1716 in 32d yr. The geneal. in Geneal. Reg. XI. is rather imperf.
EDMUND, Braintree, youngest s. of the preced. and only one wh. outliv. the f. m. Dorothy, d. of Rev. Josiah Flynt of Dorchester, was col. of the regim. rep. 1713 and 14, of the council 1715, and 1718 one of the justices of the Sup. Ct. of the Prov. In the cause of the Prov. he was sent to the Court of the Sovereign in Dec. 1737, and d. there of smallpox 23 Feb. after. The inscript. on his monum. erect. by our Gen. Ct. in Bunhill Fields (where the rest the ashes of John Milton and John Bunyan) may be read in Eliot's Biog. Dict. His will made just bef. embark. 10 Dec. 1737, pro. 18 Apr. next, names only ch. Edmund, b. 1703, H. C. 1722, Josiah, 1709, H. C. 1728, Elizabeth and Dorothy, and with tender ref. to late decease (in Aug. preced.) of his w. Dorothy. This Josiah was a merch. of emin. and disting. as a patriot in the Revo. f. of that fervid orator, Josiah, b. 23 Feb. 1744, H. C. 1763, wh. expended his life for the cause of his country, dying on shipboard, in sight of home, as he ret. from Eng. aft. hostil. had begun only seven days. Fourteen descend. of the first Edmund, in male line, are of the gr. at Harv. of wh. the only s. of the eloquent patriot was some yrs. Presid. and to whose honor he devot. a Hist. that for its truthfulness may put to shame most of the narratives of all Institutions under difficult combinations.
QUING, or QUIN, ARTHUR, Boston 1677.
QUOITMORE, THOMAS, a perverse spelling in some rec. of Coytmore.
RABBEY, or RABBE, CATHARINE, Salem, a waterman's wid. from Yarmouth, in Co. Norf. emb. 12 Apr. 1637, aged 68, to come hither, "to remain with her s." as the official docum. in Westminster Hall or her Majesty's Remembrancer's office says. Who he as is unkn. but she unit. with the ch. of S. 1641.
RABUN, or RABONE, GEORGE, Exeter 1639, by Belkn. I. 432, spelled Rawbone.
RADDEN, THADDEUS, Marblehead 1674, as print. in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 282, wh. I presume to mean the same person as T. Reddam, Redden, and Raddin in Essex Inst. II. 279 and 280, with less prob. name in Geneal. Reg. VII. 70, Thaddeus Kidder or Kiddar.
RAGLAND, JOHN, Boston, d. 27 Nov. 1690, in his will, of 26, pro. 8 Jan. foll. gave all his est. to w. Mary. [[vol. 3, p. 502]]
RAINES, or RAYNES, FRANCIS, York, sw. freem. of Mass. 1652, with prefix of dignity, lieut. 1654, had a d. m. John Woodman of Dover; as a capt. sw. alleg. to the k. 1680; made his will 21 Aug. 1693. NATHANIEL, York, s. perhaps of Francis, sw. alleg. to the k. 1681.
RICHARD, Edgartown 1659.
RAINSBORROW, WILLIAM, Charlestown 1639, was of ar. co. that yr. and had next yr. est. at Watertown, was prob. desirous of liv. on this side of the ocean, purchas. in the first yr. of his resid. the old meetinghouse, as Budington, 195, has shown, but went home bef. the civil war, in wh. he acquir. distinct. He is call. br of Stephen Winthrop (perhaps by m. of W. with sis. of R.), whose excors. conveyed to Edward R. prob. s. of William, large est. in Lynn, half of fifteen hundred acres,; and also half of Prudence isle in Narraganset Bay. Edward in 1672, was of London. Clarendon in Hist. of the Rebellion, gives acco. of William's d. 1648.
RAINSFORD, oft. RANSFORD, EDWARD, Boston 1630, came in the fleet with Winthrop by Hutchinson I. 260, called br. of Ch. Just. Rainsford, wh. so strongly do I suspect to be erron. that gladly would conject. be offered of its possib. cause, were it in my power, was freem. 17 Apr. 1637, a deac. and rul. elder of the first ch. and one the founders of the third, indignant at the artifices practis. to bring Davenport from New Haven, d. 16 Aug. 1680. He by first w. had Mary and Josiah, b. 1, both bapt. 17 June 1632; the mo. d. the same mo. and Josiah d. in Sept. foll. and by sec. w.

Jonathan and Nathan are ment. as d. yet the latter prob. without issue, as his sure. to Edward and the ch. of the other are named, Jonathan, Dorothy, and Mary. His wid. Elizabeth wh. d. 16 Nov. 1688, aged 81, is nam. excor. and he calls his. ds. Mary Parcyfull, meaning possib. Percival, but wh. the h. was is unkn. Ranis Belcher, w. of Josiah, Elizabeth Greenough, sec. w. of William and Ann Hough, w. of Samuel of Boston.
