    RICHARD, Saelm 1637, a gunsmith, had a ch. bapt. prob. John, 29 Nov. 1640; Elizabeth 26 Feb. 1643, d. unm. at 20 yrs.; Abigail, 18 May 1645; Ezekiel, 4 Apr. 1647; Susanna, 1 Apr. 1649; and Hannah, 30 Jan. 1653; tho. in whose right the act was admin. does not so well appear, as the adm. of Joyce, wh. may have ben his w. is by Felt insert. under 1641. That w. I presume to be the person made by Farmer a man (GEORGE), and by him enrol. of the ch. 23 May 1641. Such error is not so ludicr. as that he commits in mak. our Walter Merry, the shipwright of Merry's point, now the North battery, Merry Waters, as if any Boston puritan two hundred and twenty yrs. since, could have been call. Merry, instead of Sad, Stearn, or Severe. Dearborn, in Boston Notions, 63, foll. the blunder of so high authority. He is mark. by Felt as freem. tho. he omits his name among mem. of the ch. and in my opin. the person so entit. was Ipswich man. He was one of the petitnrs. in 1665 for conciliat. betw. the Col governm. and the crown, and was licensed to sell ale in 1668, and by his will of 16 July 1676, pro. 25 Nov. 1677, mak. w. Joyce extrix. we find other ch. beside the forenam. viz. James, William, Martha, and Mary. Then Abigail was w. of William Punchard; Mary of Clement English; Susanna of Benedict Pulsifer; and Hannah of Joseph Striker. Martha was perhaps unm. and in that instrum. ment. as well as her mo. and infirm. br. William. Perhaps Sarah, wh. m. 26 Feb. 1652, Joshua Ray, and Phebe, wh. m. 11 Oct. 1658, Thomas West, may have been his ds.
