the execrable charge. See 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. X. 65. Between the sec. Richard
and the first William arises some confus. In 1669, as Mr. Judd assures me, one
Richard H. was of Milford, but no more is told, exc. that the fam. name cont.
there 1713. He might seem the same as the Salem man; but how the name was
perpet. demands a pause. Mr. Porter informs me, that he d. 1683, leav. w.
Abigail, and ch. William, Joseph, and Abigail. WILLIAM, Salem, not br. of
the preced. b. in Eng. m. 1655, Elinor Story, wh. seems to be mo. of Mary
English, not w. of Richard; was a man of large commerc. operations, by w.
Elinor had Susanna, b. 4 Mar. 1659; d. abroad, suppos. to be lost at sea, a.
1677. Felt, II. 240. His w. was admor. 1679. WILLIAM, Salem, s. of Richard
the first, d. 7 Nov. 1683, aged 53.

    HOLLIS, JOHN, Weymouth, by w. Elizabeth had John, b. 28 Mar. 1664; Thomas, 7
Jan. 1667; Elizabeth 18 Nov. 1669; Mercy, 5 Feb. 1675, and perhaps others. In Dec.
of this last yr. he was a soldier. JOHN, Weymouth, perhaps s. of the preced.
by w. Mary had John, b. 26 Nov. 1691, as I judge is meant by Geneal. Reg. IV.
60, tho. date varies, and the name is spell. Halice. WILLIAM, Salem 1668. He
had Elizabeth b. July 1672; and Mary, 11 Dec. 1673.

    HOLLISTER, * JOHN, Weymouth, freem. 10 May 1643, was rep. in
Mar. 1644, in Mass. and Nov. of the same Conn. rem. to Wethersfield,
where he had been in 1642, when s. John was b. to him, as is said,
strange as his resid. seems at that day; was an efficient man in Conn.
rep. 1645, and oft. until 1656, but with others engag. in a controversy with
the ch. under Rev. John Russell, wh. caused the plant. of Hadley 1659, was
lieut. and d. Apr. 1665, by will of 3 Apr. leav. good est. to w. Joanna,
d. of the first Richard Treat, five s. John, b. 1642; Thomas; Joseph; Lazarus;
Stephen; beside d. Mary, wh. m. John Wells of Stratford; Elizabeth perhaps d.
unm.; and Sarah, w. first, 1674, of Rev. Hope Atherton of Hatfield, and next,
1678, or 9, of Timothy Baker of Northampton. Farmer thot. two of the same name
were made freem. same day; but I am satisfied, as sev. others, of rarer name,
are repeated in that day's work, it was the blunder of the clk. Joseph and
Lazarus had no ch. JOHN, Glastonbury, s. of the preced. m. 20 Nov.
1667, Sarah, eldest d. of William Goodrich, had John, b. 9 Aug. 1669;
Thomas, 14 Jan. 1672; Joseph, 8 July 1674; Sarah, 25 Oct. 1676; Elizabeth
30 Mar. 1678; David, 20 or 21 Nov. 1681; Ephraim, 15 Mar. 1684; and
Charles, 29 July 1686; beside Elizabeth without date. His w. d. a. 1700; and
he d. 24 Nov. 1711, when all the ch. exc. Charles were alive. STEPHEN,
Wethersfield, s. of the first John, by w. Abigail, d. of Matthias Treat, m.
1683, had Jonathan, tho. Goodwin calls the name Jerusha, b. 7 Jan. 1684;
Stephen, 12 Nov. 1686, d. at 20 yrs.; Abigail, 16 Aug. 1688; Ann, 16 Mar.
1690; Gershom, 2 Apr. 1692; Samuel, 1694; Eunice, 1696; Gideon, 1698; Daniel,
1700; and Nathaniel, 1702. By a sec. w. Elizabeth wid. of Jonathan Reynolds, he
had Stephen, again, 12 Sept. 1709; and d. as a capt. in command, 2 Oct. 1709.
THOMAS, Wethersfield, br. of the preced. m. Elizabeth d. of John Lattimore,
