    ALCOCK, FRANCIS, Newbury, came in the Bevis 1638, aged 26, in
the employm. of Richard Dummer, as the Eng. custom ho. rec. tells;
but that is the sole authority for call. him of Newbury, nor is any more
kn. of him. GEORGE, Roxbury, came in the fleet with Govr. Winthrop
1630
, with his w. a sis. of Rev. Thomas Hooker, but leav. only s. at
home, desir. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. of that yr. and was rec. 18 May foll.
Bef. the gather. of ch. at R. he was deac. at Dorchester, and his w. d.
the first seas. He was a physician, rep. at the first ct. 14 May 1634,
and after, as well as deac. for Roxbury ch. He went home to bring his
s. John, and at the same or foll. visit got sec. w. Elizabeth by wh. he had
Samuel, b. 16 Apr. 1637, H. C. 1659; and at his d. a. 30 Dec. 1640,
the ch. rec. says he "left a good savor behind him, the poor of the ch.
much bewailing his loss." Of his will, made ten days bef. an abstr. may
be read in Geneal. Reg. II. 104. His wid. in Apr. foll. m. Henry Dingham,
or Dengham, or Dengayne, a surgeon of Watertown. JOB, York
1666, s. of John of the same, made a lieut. 1677, and a magistr. under
authority of Mass. 1678, and capt. 1681; by creation of William and
Mary, in the new Chart. under adv. of Increase Mather, 1691 made a
counsellor, but was next yr. left out, on the popul. revulsion against his
patron. Hutch. 11. 15, says only, that he was of Maine, yet strange is it,
that both he, and Douglas, I. 486 should falsely spell his name, Alcot, and
stranger still, that Mather should have put that error into his charter,
prob. for the sake of euphony. JOHN, Kittery, adm. freem. of Mass.
1652, prob. rem. to York, had to div. his est. 1675, two s. Joseph, and
Job, five ds. viz. Mary Twisden, w. of Samuel, perhaps, or of John the
sec. Elizabeth Banks w. prob. of Richard; Hannah Snell, w. perhaps, of
George; Sarah Gittings, whose h. is a stranger to me; and Lydia Dummer,
perhaps a maiden, sole ch. of ano. d. Yet conject. may be wearied
in finding the connect. Joseph, adm. at the same time, was prob. his s.
but Samuel may not have been. JOHN, Roxbury, s. of George of the
same, b. in Eng. early in 1627, H. C. 1646, was a physician, but after
leav. coll. went to Hartford, prob. on call of his uncle Hooker, to teach a
sch. some time. He m. Sarah, d. of Richard Palsgrave of Charlestown,
had Joanna, wh. d. soon after b. 5 Aug. or Sept. 1649; Ann, and
Sarah, tw. bapt. 26 May 1650; Mary, 15 Aug. 1652; George, 25 Mar.
1655, H. C. 1673; John, b. 5, bapt. 15 Mar. 1657; prob. d. 5 May 1690,
unm.; Elizabeth bapt. 27 Mar. 1659; Joanna, again, 6 May 1660; and Palsgrave,
20 July 1662, wh. d. 24 Nov. 1710. His w. d. 29 Nov. 1665,
