1676; Desire, 20 Dec. 1678; Alice, 8 May 1681; Jane, 3 Nov. 1682;
Lettice; and Caleb. He d. 1678; and at the distrib. of the est. of
their gr.f. wh. d. 1709, neither Desire, nor Caleb, nor Nathaniel, is
nam. tho. both Caleb and Nathaniel are nam. in his will. JOHN, Boston,
was one of the purchas. 1684, of a large tract from Mass. for hims. and
others in London, and at the last elect. in 1686, bef. loss of our chart.,

at the distribut. of est. of the gr.f. MICHAEL, or MYLES, Sandwich,
had Michael, b. 1 June 1648, wh. d. at 25 yrs. prob. unm.; John;
Joshua; and Jane. Hardly can I doubt, that this man is he designat. in
the Col. list of those able to bear arms 1643, as Miles Black, Geneal.
Reg. IV. 257.

    BLACKWOOD, CHRISTOPHER, Scituate, hot. 1641, the ho. of Rev. John
Lothrop, and succeed. him as preach. but next yr. sold the est. to
Chauncy, wh. bec. the sett. min. and B. went home. See Lechford, 41;

    BLAGGE, HENRY, Braintree, brickburner, had Philip, b. 24 Mar.
1643, rem. prob. to Boston 1653, d. 1662, leav. wid. Elizabeth and s. Nathaniel,
a brickmaker, wh. is very near, I judge, to the same trade with his f.

prob. of Nathaniel of the same, had Elizabeth b. 26 May 1687; Joseph, 17
Nov. 1689, d. at 2 yrs.; Mary, 27 Aug. 1692; Joseph, again, 7 Oct.

Ralph. RALPH, Salisbury 1640, but part of that yr. was liv. at York,
