perhaps s. of Bernard, m. 23 Dec. 1660, Elizabeth Darby or Derby, had
Sarah, b. Dec. 1666; Thomas; Elizabeth; Mary; Hannah; Jabez; Rebecca;
Bethia; Bathshua; and Patience, given by Mr. Hamblen from
the rec. Geneal. Reg. XII. 249, with so many inconsist. dates that we
kn. not wh. may be correct. In Col. Rec. we read, "Joseph, Benjamin,
and Jeremiah, 10 June 1671," wh. perhaps, means that they d. or were
bur. that day at B.

    LOMMAKS, NATHANIEL, Dover 1672 to 88, was s. of Edward. See
Loomis.

    LONDON, JOHN, Windsor, was a soldier in Philip's war. Trumbull,
Coll. Rec. II. 396, 9. The Conn. counc. of war (for his com. from the
army without license in Jan. 1676, calumn. the officers, and report. many
notorious lies), sent him to prison, but he was soon releas. on acknowledg.
of his offence, and promise to do good service. He was engag. in the
work of befooling Sir Edmund Andros in 1680 about the regicide Goffe,
and swore, in N. Y. 20 Apr. 1680, where A. was then Gov. that G.
was, in Apr. 1678, liv. at Hartford, and that James Richards, wh. was
the oldest mem. of the Counc. and the richest man in the Col. was agt.
of G. and that if he, L., discov. the matter it would tend to his ruin;
and much other preposterous stuff he testif. All wh. trifling was, with
the letter of Andros to Conn. Gov. and their reply, print. in 1855.
See the curious matter in Conn. Hist. Coll. III. 284, et seq. showing
how the letter of Gov. Andros from New York, of 18 May, was receiv.
on 10 June, twenty-three days from date, and travel. almost six miles a
day. Perhaps Gov. Leete was innocent of the deception, but he must
have been blind, or deaf, or both, not to have suspect. the contrivance,
distrust. the agent.

    LONG, ABTEL, Newbury, s. of Robert of the same, m. 27 Oct. 1682,
Hannah, d. of Mr. Joseph Hill, had Abiel, b. 24 July 1683, d. in few
wks.; Hannah, 6 Nov. 1684; and Benjamin, 1 Sept. 1691; and d. 13
Apr. 1743, aged 94. JOHN, Charlestown, s. of the first Robert of the
same, b. in Eng. brot. by his f. had two ws. of wh. the first, Abigail
Norton, d. of Francis, wb. d. 21 Apr. 1674, had John, b. 17 Feb. 1656;
Mary; and Abigail; all bapt. 6 May 1660; the s. may have d. young,
as we find, consistent with rec. of d. of his w. Elizabeth 29 July 1678, and
child of smallpox, a gr.stone of John, 10 Nov. 1678; Robert, b. 7,
bapt. 14 Feb. 1664; Norton, b. 17, bapt. 20 May 1666; a former
Norton, b. 21 Aug. 1662, hav. d. 12 July 1664; Abigail, 6 Dec. 1668;
Sarah, 26 Feb. 1671; and Isaac; 1 Jan. 1675; and by his sec. m. 10
or 16 Sept. 1674, wh. was Mary, d. of Increase Nowell, and wid. of
Isaac Winslow, had Isaac, bapt. 6 June 1675, d. young; Catharine,
bapt. 3 June 1677; Samuel; and Mary, b. 31 Mar. bapt. 3 Apr. 1681,
