calls him gr.f. yet falls into strange error as to date of his d. of wh. event
the full and exact relat. of his s. John must be receiv. "28 July 1666 at
4 in the afternoon," aged 73. His will, made 20 May 1657, names s.
John excor. gives him est. at Muddy riv. and part of that in B., some to
his s. Edmund Quincy, and his s. John Q. at Braintree, a legacy to his s.
Storer, meaning his first w.'s, and an est. to his own s. Edward. But as

and w. Blanch. WILLIAM, R. I. 1654.

    HULLING or HULLINE, OBADIAH, Salem, had, says Felt, gr. of ld.
1639; and in the list of freem. appears the surname with no name of
bapt. 22 May 1639. Yet I feel doubtful, for in his ch. mem. Felt gives

1639.
