ANTHONY, Salem 1688, a physician. Felt. ISAAC, Scituate, youngest s. of William of the same, m. 19 Nov. 1684, Susanna, d. of Joseph Barstow, and for sec. w. 1692, Deborah, of John Buck, had Isaac Susanna, Jacob, Deborah, Robert, Ruth, Gideon, Rachel, Caleb, Elisha, Mary, Abigail, Grace, and Perez; of whom we may presume that the last eleven were by the sec.

Perhaps his w. was relat. of Thomas Rollins the sec. of Boston; at least in his will of 12 Dec. 1681, he is nam. among other kin. JOHN, Watertown, m. Rachel, d. of John Waite of the same, had Mary, b. 10 June 1690; and he d. Dec. foll.

Philury, wh. m. George Phelps, and s. Abraham, bef. ment. and Philip, rem. 1636 to Windsor, there d. 6 Sept. 1648, unless this be date of his s. of the same name, and he, I think, liv. to 66, but had no ch. and the name soon after was exinct at W. The wid. d. 1665, aged 87. RICHARD, Saco, had Richard, b. 1659; and Sarah, 1661; may be the same wh. was of Boston 1676, (but more prob. his f.) a mariner, had w. Elizabeth d. of the first Richard Tozer, and many yrs. later was of Dover. ROBERT, Weymouth frem. 1647, then spell. Rendell, in his will of 27 Mar. 1621, names his ch.

The will of 13 Jan. 1698, names the three ds. and Mary m. only six weeks aft. that date Abraham Chamberlin; yet the will was not, of course, potental in the [[vol. 3, p. 507]] match. He left no male descend.
THOMAS, Marblehead, fisherman, m. bef. Feb. 1665, Sarah, d. of John Langdon of Boston, d. soon, for his inv. was tak. 20 Nov. 1667. THOMAS, Weymouth, s. of Robert, freem. 1691, by w.

See Eliot's Biog. Dict.; Hutch. 1. 319; and Chalmer's Pol. Ann. 491.

RASHLEY, HENRY, Boston 1648, perhaps br. of Thomas, d. bef. July 1657, JOHN, charg. with murder 1679, to the E. of Kennebeck. THOMAS, Boston, adm. of the ch. 8 Mar. 1640, called "a studyent," meaning in theology, no doubt, and next yr. at Gloucester, as we learn from Lechford, he exercis. as they say, in a prophetical way, and there perhaps m. but his s. John "being a. six wks. old," was bapt. at B. 18 May 1645, in wh. yr. he was possib. of ar. co. and of Exeter 1646; but soon went home, was the min. at Bishop Stoke, Co. Hants, where, 4 May 1652, he bapt. Samuel Sewall, first of that name, Ch. Just. of Mass. He was after, as Farmer, in a MS. note says, sett. in Wiltsh.
RASOR, RICHARD, Boston, m. 24 Aug. 1660, Exercise, d. of John Blackleach.
RATCHELL or RACHELL, ROBERT, Boston, m. Judith, d. of John Hart, had Mary, b. 31 Aug. 1652; Ann, 4 Feb. 1654; and Temperance, 8 June 1658; he d. 1659, when inv. of his est. was £5 4s. 8d. and his wid. m. 3 Dec. 1663, Philip Bullis. Boston rec. however, by seeming incongru. makes Thomas Reape to be m. by Gov. John Endicott, 30 Nov. 1660, to wid. Judith Ratchell. Still Bullis prevailed, possib. at a later day. Mary m. John Pierce of Gloucester; Ann m. 1677, Andrew Hall of Boston; and Temperance m. William Johnson of Boston, and was wid. 1677.
RATCLIFF, or RATLIFFE, JOHN, Boston, by w. Alice had John, b. 16 Nov. 1664; Thomas, 17 Jan. 1667; and Elizabeth 1 Jan. 1670. PHILIP, agent for Gov. Cradock, prob. in the Marblehead fishery, bef. 1630, severely, even cruelly punish. for maledict. of the ch. at Salem in June 1631, as cutting off his ears, and a sort of excuse seems to be suggested that he could not have felt the indignity bec. he was insane. He was banish. as in Winthrop is told I. 56. ROBERT, Plymouth, came in the Ann, 1623, prob. with w. and ch. for in the div. of lds. next yr. he had four sh. but in the div. of cattle, 1627, his name is not found. ROBERT, [[vol. 3, p. 509]] Boston 1686, the first Episcop. min. sett. in N. E. was induct. 15 June of that yr. and Sewall, in his Diary Notes, that on 15 Sept. Mr. David Jeffries was by him m. to Miss Betty Usher, prob. d. of John; but perhaps no edifice for worship was erect. in his time. Neither Pemberton nor Eliot give any report of him after the first yr. Dunton says he "was an emin. preach. and his Sermons were useful, and well dressed." He had come in the frigate Rose, May 1686, and went home, no doubt, at the end of three yrs. when his patron Andros was overthrown. WILLIAM, Greenwich 1669, had prob. liv. at Stamford, there m. 27 Oct. 1659, Elizabeth d. of Nicholas Thele, was rep. 1670.
RATHBON, JOHN, THOMAS, THOMAS, jr. and WILLIAM, were of Block isl. 1678.
RATSTOCK, JOSHUA, Boston 1687, prayed Sir E. Andros for leave to keep a sch. at the N. end, but his success is not heard of.
RAVENSCROFT, ANTHONY, Westerly 1661, was a soldier in 1675. SAMUEL, Boston, ar. co. 1679, m. Dionysia, d. of Maj. Thomas Savage, had Dionysia, b. 12 Apr. 1681; Samuel, 12 Apr. 1682; both bapt. 7 May this yr.; George, 20, bapt. 23 Mar. 1684; Sarah, 20 Nov. 1686; and Thomas, 29 June 1688. He was one of the Wardens of the first Episcop. ch. and that prevent. the bapt. of the ch. at O. S. to wh. he had belong. and it may be thot. perhaps led to his imprison. at the revo. in Apr. 1689. Soon after, he unit. in a loyal address to King William, but prob. rem. in short time.
RAVENSDALE, JOHN, was sw. a freem. of Mass. 6 May 1635; but where liv. I find not.
RAWBORNE. See Rabun.
RAWLINS, RAWLINGS, or ROLLINS, CALEB, Boston, s. of Thomas the sec. by w. Elizabeth d. of Nicholas Wilmot, had Thomas, b. 15 Sept. 1673; Mary, 10 Mar. 1677; and Ann, 25 Oct. 1679. ICHABOD, Dover, perhaps s. of James, was taxed 1665. JAMES, Newbury, freem. 14 May 1634, was of Dover two yrs. after, and in 1656, fined for neglect of public worship. JASPER, Roxbury, came with w. Joan in 1632 prob. for 11 June 1633 he was adm. freem. went early to Wethersfield, soon aft. to Windsor; but back to R. bef. 1646; there m. 8 June 1651, wid. of Thomas Griggs, perhaps Hannah, to wh. by his will of 7 Jan. 1666, pro. 13 June 1667, he gave all his est. unless any of his ch. came here to sett. I believe they all contin. in Conn. He was of Boston 1654, and aft. JOHN, Boston, by w. Judah had Gershom, b. 29 Jan. 1686; and perhaps more. JOSHUA, Boston 1671, mariner, s. of sec. Thomas, by w. Abigail had Abigail, b. 2 May of that yr. wh. m. Oct. 1686, Zechariah Kirk.
NATHANIEL, Scituate, s. of Thomas came with his f. to Roxbury 1630, m. 4 Sept. 1652, Lydia, d. of Richard Sylvester, had Elizabeth b. 1 Mar. [[vol. 3, p. 510]] 1654, d. young; Ruth, 27 Sept. 1655; Patience, 1658; Nathaniel, 1659; Elizabeth again, 1661; and Nathaniel, again, 7 Sept. 1662; and d. 23 Dec. 1662. His w m.

RICHARD, Boston 1638, a plaisterer, adm. of the ch. 1642, freem. 10 May 1643, had w. Mary. ROBERT, Amesbury, sw. alleg. 20 Dec. 1677. SAMUEL, a soldier at Hadley in 1676, was perhaps s. of Thomas the sec. of Boston. THOMAS, Roxbury 1630, perhaps br. of Jasper, "came in the first comp." says the ch. rec. that is, with Winthrop bef. either Eliot or Welde, bring. with w. five ch. Thomas, Mary, John, Nathaniel, and John, was made freem. 18 May 1631, hav. req. that benefit 19 Oct. bef. His w. Mary d. a. 1639, and he soon rem. to Weymouth, thence to Scituate, and few yrs. later to Boston, where his w. Emma d. 27 Dec. 1655, and he m. 2 May 1656, Sarah, wid. of David Mattocks of R. and d. 15 Mar. 1660. His will of three days bef. pro. 4 Apr. foll. names only w. Sarah, and s. Thomas and Nathaniel. Mary, the d. brot. from Eng. m. Apr. 1639, William Parker, and Joan m. 28 Jan. 1646, Ephraim Kempton, both of S. but their ws. were d. bef. this will. Deane has slightly conus. the acco.
THOMAS, Weymouth, mariner, s. of the preced. came 1630, with his f. freem. 3 Mar. 1636, prob. rem. after b. of Thomas his first s. and Joshua, b. 2 Dec. 1642, to Boston, there had Caleb, 8 Mar. 1645; Joseph, bapt. in right of his mo. of the ch. of W. at B. 25 June 1648, a. 11 days old; Mary, b. 24 Nov. 1652; Samuel, 1 Sept. 1655; and his w. Hannah, mo. of these ch. was admor. of the est. 1677. THOMAS, Dorchester, of wh. all we kn. comes from the gr.-st. that he d. 7 July 1693, aged a. 70 yrs. THOMAS, Boston, s. prob. of the sec. Thomas, by w. Sarah had Thomas, b. 20 Jan. 1667; but no more is found on the rec. and we may presume he d. or rem. Almost universal. this name is become Rollins.
RAWLINSON, THOMAS, Ipswich, freem. 2 May 1638. See Rowlandson.
RAWSON, EDWARD, Newbury, b. 16 Apr. 1615, at Gillingham, Co. Dorset, near the bounds of Hants and Wilts, from both of wh. came many of our Newbury people, arr. I suppose, in 1637, and in Mar. 1638, freem. was first clk. of the town, rep. 1638, 9, 42, 4, 6, 8, and 9, and Secr. 1650 to 86, d. 27 Aug. 1693, having rem. to Boston, 1650; was long reg. of deeds for Suff'k. Co. as well as Secr. for the Col. for wh. office the vols. of rec. exhibit strange evid. in many places of his incompetency or more wonderful neglect. One instance is specified [[vol. 3, p. 511]] under Adams, Joseph. He had s. Daniel, bef. 1662. He m. inn Eng. Rachel, d. of Thomas Pirne, or Perne, and his first ch. a d. was b. there, and left at home; beside her, six more ds. are said to have been b. to him, and five s. Of these we can hardly be sure of the dates of more than half; Edward, H. C. 1653; and Rachel, wh. m. at Boston, 18 Jan. 1653, William Aubrey, we may suppose to have been b. in Eng. also; but the rest would prob. be b. here, though we may mistake names as well as dates. David, b. 6 May 1644; Pirne or Parnell, 1646; and Grindall, 23 Jan. 1649, wh. d. young, may admit to have their b. at N. as Coffin gives them; tho. his Susan wh. d. in Roxbury 1654, must be rejected, since the town rec. is silent, and by inspect. of the ch. rec. it seems prob. Susan, d. of Edward Payson, was thus read. John, wh. went to Eng. and never came back, and William, b. at B. 21, bapt. 25 May 1651; Rebecca, 19 Oct. 1654, d. soon; Rebecca, again, b. 21, bapt. 25 May 1656; Sarah; Elizabeth 12 Nov. 1657; and Grindall, again, 23 Jan. 1659, H. C. 1678, will complete the number without the conjectural Susan of Roxbury. His w. had d. 11 Oct. 1677. Mary m. 15 May 1657, Rev. Samuel Torrey; Rebecca m. 1 July 1679, one Thomas Rumsey, a scoundrel, wh. pretend. to be Thomas Hale, jr. a neph. of the great jurist, Sir Matthew, Ch. J. of Eng. wh. carried her to London, and immediate. abandon. her; and Sarah m. Thomas Brougton of Boston. EDWARD, Boston, eldest s. the preced. went home, and was a sett. min. at Horsmanden in Co. Kent, whence, after the Restor. he was eject. by the farmer incumbent.
GRINDALL, Mendon, youngest s. of Edward the first, so nam. in honor of the puritan Archbp. of Canterbury in Elizabeth's day, was sec. min. in that town, freem. 1683 ord. 7 Apr. 1684, m. Susanna, d. of Rev. John Wilson of Medfield, had Edmund, b. 1684, d. soon; John, 26 Apr. 1685, d. next mo.; Susanna, 3 Oct. 1686; Edmund, again, 8 July 1689; Wilson, 23 June 1692; John, again, 1 Oct. 1695; Mary, 22 June 1699; Rachel, 6 Sept. 1701; David, 25 Oct. 1703, d. in 3 mos.; Grindall, 6 Sept. 1707; and Elizabeth 21 Apr. 1710. He d. 6 Feb. 1715, and his wid. d. 8 July 1748, in her 84th yr. WILLIAM, Boston, br. of the preced. m. 11 July 1673, Ann, only d. of Nathaniel Glover of Dorchester, had Ann, b. 11 Apr. 1674; Wilson, 1675; Margaret, 1 Aug. 1676; Edward, 6 Sept. 1677, d. soon; Edward, again, 29 Aug. 1678; Rachel, 16 Oct. 1679; Dorothy, 8 Aug. 1681, all d. young; William, 2 or 8 Dec. 1682, H.
