1676; Mary m. 18 Nov. 1655, David Burt; Sarah m. 18 Nov. 1656, John King; and

    HOLYOKE, sometimes HOLLIOCKE, * EDWARD, Lynn 1636, or 7, was
from Tamworth, Co. Stafford, on the edge of Warwicksh. and with prefix of
respect adm. freem. 14 Mar. 1639, liv. most of his days in that pt. of Boston
call. Rumney Marsh, since Chelsea, but chos. perhaps rep. for sev. towns betw.
the time when he was serv. for Lynn 1639-48 and his d. as for Springfield 1650
and after, being so honored at his d. This, I suppose, with the fact of his
owning est. there led to the opinion, that he had rem. thither wh. is prob. an
error. He d. 4 May 1660, leav. only s. Elizur, and ds. Elizabeth wh. m. George
Keysar; Ann, wh. m. 17 Oct. 1643, lieut. Thomas Putnam; Mary, wh. m.

d. of Rev. John Stockton of Kinholt, m. 18 June 1612, by wh. bef. he came
hither, he had, also, Edward, wh. d. 30 Dec. 1631, in 13th yr. and John, wh.
also d. in Eng. 5 Mar. 1635. His will may be read in Geneal. Reg. IX.
345. It is curious in detail; but distorts the good name Putnam of one of the
s.-in-law, into an impossible Prenam. In the will of Richard, f. of Ann Hathaway,
w. of the immort. Shakespeare, made 1 Sept. 1581 at Stratford, he names Edward
Hollyocke, as to him was due 20 shillings for wood; but tho. Warwicksh. and
Staffordsh. adj. it must be large 30 ms. from Stratford to Tamworth, so that,
if Edward were f. of our Edward, he had earlier, without doubt, liv. nearer
London. * ELIZUR, Springfield, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. prob. came
with his f. freem. 13 Apr. 1648, m. 20 Nov. 1640, Mary, d. of William

His w. d. 25 Oct. 1657, and he soon m. Editha, wid. of John Maynard, as bef.
of Robert Day, wh. brot. him no ch. but surv. him, as did all those ch. of the
first w. exc. the first b. Mary d. unm. at S. 1713, when the name ceased
there. Samuel was a capt. in the hard fight, 19 May 1676, at the Falls, and
