WILLIAM, Cambridge, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. freem. 10 May 1643,

He was selectman 1667, and many yrs. aft. sent, 1670, to Eng. to induce
Uriah Oakes to come over to be presid. of the coll. says tradit. with
more wildness than might have been expect. of Cambridge people,
wh. kn. that vacancy did not occur by d. of Chauncy until 1672. The
gr.stone that tells his d. 14 Mar. 1691, aged 76 yrs. may be truer, but I
suspect some exagger. in that for his w. Dorothy, when it makes her 80
yrs. at the d. 26 July 1692. Sarah m. 11 Apr. 1671, Joseph Bull of
Hartford; and Mary m. 21 Oct. 1674, Rev. William Adams of Dedham.

as found at Westminster Hall.

    MANSFIELD, ANDREW, Lynn 1639, had been at Boston 1636, came
from Exeter, in Devon, it is said, bring. s. Andrew, b. 1630; and, I suppose,
w. Elizabeth d. of Rev. William Walton, wh. d. 8 Sept. 1673, aged
above 80 yrs. by wh. prob. he had other ch. as, perhaps, ea. of these foll.
Joseph; John, wh. d. 16 Oct. 1671; Robert, wh. d. 16 Dec. 1666;
Samuel; and Elizabeth This last m. 10 June 1675, Joshua Witt; and he d.

charity, with his fam. as Winthrop 1. 150, tells. His wid. mo. d. that yr.
in London, at the ho. of Robert Keayne, whose w. was a d. and Elizabeth
the w. of Rev. John Wilson was ano. but he seems to have done little
here beside worrying his brs. Wilson and Keayne, in the will of the last,
most curious details being relat. for wh. see Geneal. Reg. VI. 156. Yet
E. gave something to the two ch. and their f. seems to have held on a
long time, dying at Charlestown 1674. JOHN, Lancaster, s. of the
preced. bec. a propr. in 1654, had 500 acres giv. by his Aunt Ann
Keayne, as Rev. John Wilson of Medfield testif. 11 Feb. 1675. JOHN,
