At C. he had, also, Richard, bapt. 22 July 1660; Elizabeth 9 June 1661; Deborah, 6
July 1662; Nathaniel, 5 June 1664. But these were not ch. of Elizabeth who had
been wid. of Oakes, and was, after 1662, wid. of Seth Sweetser, when she m.

Herring, dealing with Judith, wid. of Stephen Winthrop, in May 1687, and

Howard. But I am almost certain that f. and s. are confus. or some other
confus. appears. SIMEON, Concord, s. of George, m. 7 Mar. 1687, Elizabeth
perhaps d. of the first Jonathan Danforth, had Elizabeth b. 28 Feb. 1689; Jonathan,
16 Nov. 1690; Simeon, 24 Apr. 1693; and Mary, 19 Mar. 1696. THOMAS,
Cambridge, came in the Hercules 1635,from Sandwich, being tailor of
Aylesford, Co. Kent, with w. Susanna, and five ch. but he had perhaps been
here as early as 1632, coming with Winslow in the William and Francis, and
satisf. with prospects, went home to bring them; sett. at Duxbury bef. 1638,
prob. at Bridgewater 1651, being of the first proprs. 1645, was freem. of the
col. 1646, had Thomas, Nathaniel, John, Joseph, Elisha, Mary, w. of Edward
Mitchell, and Martha, w. of John Howard; but of these we are unable to
discrim. which were b. in Eng. or whether even he were that Kentish man, or
not. He d. 1681. Elisha never was m. made his will 1703. Descend. of Thomas

Sarah, d. of William Ames of Braintree, but no ch. THOMAS, Enfield, had
Benjamin, b. 1686, but bef. had Nathan, John, and sev. ds. was "aged a. 50,"
in 1693, so that it is prob. that he was b. on this side of the Atlantic, d.
1700. * WILLIAM, Hampton, freem. 13 May 1640, had been of Charlestown
in 1637, was lieut. and rep. 1641-5. WILLIAM, Braintree 1648, had w. Margery,
and sev. ch. of wh. Jonathan is the only one to be traced exactly, was drown.
1659. WILLIAM, Swanzey, by w. Sarah had Jonathan, b. 8 Apr. 1672;
Margery, 10 Sept. 1673. Fifteen of this last name had, in 1850, been gr.
at Harv. Great skill will often be baffled in reconcil. the various spell.
with the deductions of fams. from Hayward, Haywood, Heywood,
and the predominant Howard.

    HAYWOOD, ANTHONY, Boston 1671, had w. Margaret, s. Powell, b. 19 Oct.
1674, d. young; and Powell, again, 18 Nov. 1679; was one of the found. of the
