1 Sept. 1639; and Eliz, 8 Oct. 1643; he d. early, and his wid. m. perhaps,
William Pell, again was wid. and m. John Maynard, and outliv. him. His d. as
is supposed, Leah, m. 22 Feb. 1653, Cornelius Fisher, and Elizabeth m. John
Barnes. NATHANIEL, Dedham, freem. 1671, perhaps s. of the preced. in t hat
pt. set off as Wrentham, by w. Mary had Sarah, b. 14 June 1687; James, 25 Mar.
1690; and Abigail, 3 May 1695, perhaps others earlier. NATHANIEL, New Haven,
a cordwainer, perhaps s. or br. of James, a propr. 1685. The name has been prevalent
in that vicin.

    HEDGE, ELISHA, Plymouth, was a serg. 1671. ELISHA, Yarmouth, s. of
William, d. 1732, aged 71, leav. eldest ch. John, who, by Thankful, d. of
Barnabas, b. Lathrop of Barnstable, had Barnabas, H. C. 1724, f. of Barnabas,
b. 1740, who was f. of the late Hon. Barnabas, H. C. 1783. JOHN, Lynn, 1634,
then aged a. 24. STEPHEN, Fairfield 1670. WILLIAM, Lynn, freem. 14 May 1634,
rem. to Sandwich, thence to Yarmouth, had Elizabeth b. 21 May 1646; Mary, 1648;
beside Abraham, Sarah, Elisha, William, John, Mary, and Lemuel, all liv. to be
nam. in his will; but this may not be the order of their b. His sec. w. was
Blanch, and had been wid. Hull. Elizabeth m. 4 Jan. 1666, Jonathan Barnes; Mary
m. a Sturgis; and Sarah m. a Matthews. He d. 1670, when some of these ch.
were young. His will of 30 June in that yr. ment. that his w. to wh. he gave
only twelve pence, had brok. covenant and separat. from him. A soldier in the
Pequot war, with this surname, whose name of bapt. is not found, either in
Vincent, Underhill, or Mason, the narrators, wh. serv. with him, is very well
ment. and the first writer (who prob. spoke with confidence), calls him a
gent. of Northamptonsh. WILLIAM, Bristol, perhaps s. of the preced. was
liv. 1689, with only one ch. One William Hedges of Hampton, L. I. 1650 may
have been freem. of Mass. 1634. Ten of this name had been gr. at harv. in 1834.

    HEDGER, THOMAS, Warwick, a resid. for many yrs. of wh. by rec. no trace
of fam. is seen.

    HEDGES, TRISTRAM, Boston, m. 20 Dec. 1657, Ann Nickerson, d. of William,
had Grace, b. 20 Aug. 1659. WILLIAM, Taunton 1648, freem. 1652, m. Mary d. of
Henry Andrews of the same, had John, and Henry b. a. 1652; d. 2 Apr. 1654.
His wid. made her will soon after, I suppose, for she desires Peter Pitts, "in
case I make him my h." to perform its conditions in favor of the ch. THis
name is print. in Geneal. Reg. V. 261, without the finals. wh. it had in two
pages preced. But I doubt the correctness of either form, and think it should
be Hodges, as Baylies has given it.

    HEDLEY, JOHN, Newport, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 3 Apr. 1674; Elizabeth 11
Feb. 1676; John, 8 Mar. 1678; and Sarah.

    HEFERMAN, WILLIAM, Wickford 1674, when also Robert, Samuel, and William,
jr. perhaps his s. were all there.
