WILLIAM, Duxbury, s. of Thomas of Plymouth, m. Martha, d. of Samuel
Nash, was surveyor of highways 1659, rem. prob. to Bridgewater,
and may have m. 1 Mar. 1660, at P. Sarah Woolcot, whose f. is unkn.
to me. He made his will 3 Jan. 1687, and soon after d. leav. as is thot.
neither w. nor ch. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Ann had Joseph, b.10
Sept. 1659. Ano. WILLIAM of Boston m. 18 Sept. 1661, Martha, d. of
George Farr of Lynn, had Samuel, b. 28 June 1663; John, 3 Apr.
1666; and Mary, 22 Mar. 1668. WILLIAM, Lynn, perhaps s. of William
of the same, m. 23 Aug. 1669, Elinor Dearnford, as Felt gives the
name in Geneal. Reg. V. 95, rem. I conject. to Boston (where his w. on
rec. is Ellen), and had Joanna, b. 22 Aug. 1670. WILLIAM, Northampton,
s. of the first William of the same, m. 15 July 1680, Hannah,
d. of Elder John Strong, had Hannah, b. 5 May 1681; Abigail, 25 Jan.
1683, d. at 4 yrs.; William; Jonathan, 13 May 1688; Thomas, 14 Apr.
1690; Joseph, 1691; Benoni, 1 Feb. 1693; and his w. d. 10 days after.
By sec. w. Mary be had Timothy, 9 Oct. 1695; and Gershom, 18 Nov.
1697. He was freem. 1690, and rem. to Lebanon a. 1700, and was a
promin. man; but whether he had more ch. or when he d. is uncert.
WILLIAM, Saybrook, m. 7 Mar. 1678, Hannah, d. of the sec. Francis
Griswold. WILLIAM, Boston, by w. Rachel had William, b. 30 Dec. 1679,
was a capt. and the same, or more prob. ano. by w. Rebecca had William,
b. 31 Mar. 1681; and either was, or even a third, perhaps, the freem.
of 1690. WILLIAM, Boston, br. of the Hon. John, was rep. 1720-2, & 5.
See Hutch. II. On this copious name, in some fam. using e instead of a, and
in more end. with e, it seem. best to have uniform. spell as there exists
nothing but confus. in the variety, I have bestow. gr. labor, but feel sure,
that many omiss. may be detect. and ought to rejoice if graver failure be
not found. Grad. at Harv. count 29, at Yale 27, at Dart. 10 in 1829,
prob. 30 more at the other N. E. coll. of wh. at Harv. twelve were clerg.
and above twenty as the aggreg. of the other Inst.

    CLARK, JOHN, Watertown, m. 5 Feb. 1644, Sarah Cady, perhaps sis.
of Nicholas, but Bond, 162, calls the w. Mary Cassell, had Sarah, b. 4
Oct. 1647; perhaps John; and Gershom, 7 Sept. 1650, wh. prob. d.
young; rem. to Hadley, and d. 1690, leav. no ch. but giv. his est. to ch.
of John and of Sarah his ch. This d. m. 13 Dec. 1667, John Perry of
W. Bond's acco. makes the sec. w. of Clary to be Sarah, and that she
d. 23 Dec. 1681; but perhaps p. 742 explains some former part of his
narr. JOHN, Hatfield, 8. of the preced. m. 1670, Ann Dickinson, at
Northfield d. 1688, perhaps shot by Ind. He left John, Joseph, and Mary.
