(wh. d. the foll. yr.) relative to the ancestry of this Nathaniel, at wh. was

s. of the first Nathaniel, m. 27 Mar. 1673, Sarah, d. of Gov. Hinckley,
had Nathaniel, b. 9 Sept. 1674 ; Mary, 9 Oct. 1677; Elizabeth 11 Apr.

1659, Martha Foxwell, had Samuel, b. 9 Mar. 1660; and Martha, 6 Jan.
1662. SAMUEL, Barnstable, s. of Nathaniel the first, m. 17 Dec. 1675,

Thomas Potter of Coventry, wh. had been mayor of that borough. His will

of the Irish rebellion, she was sent over here, says tradit. and her h. foll. soon;
but her br. Humphrey P. and other relat. perish. in the massacre. Her will of 23
Mar. 1655, pro. 29 Nov. foll. names cous. i. e. niece, Ann Potter, and John
Bacon, beside sis. Judith in O. E. Some community of origin may be, perhaps,
traced to this tradit. and to that of Michael; yet the flight from the rebellion
would seem more natural in that early day to be direct. to Eng.
Felt says, William was freem. after 1643; but the evidence is not seen.
In 1834 Farmer found the gr. of this name to be seven at Yale, four at
Harv. and four at other N. E. coll. the earliest of wh. Jacob, H. C. 1731,
min. of Plymouth, was gr.gr.s. of the first Michael.

1658; possib. other ch. GEORGE, Milton, s. perhaps of the preced. or of

1671, ment. w. Mary, s. Benjamin, Return, Enoch, and sev. ds. JAMES, Portsmouth,
R. I. among freem. in 1655, rem. to the other side of Narraganset
