but I am confident that it was a mistak. by his informer for Millet.
WILLIAM, Ipswich 1648, prob. rem. with earliest sett. to Northampton,
by w. Patience had Mary; Rebecca, d. young; Patience, b. 15 Sept.
1657; William, 30 Nov. 1668, Feb. 1662; Ebenezer, 7 June
1664; Mehitable, 10 July 1666; Thankful, 25 Apr. 1669; and Abraham,
20 Jan. 1672, was freem. 1690; and d. 15 July 1690. His will
was of 1668, and his wid. d. 16 Mar. 1716, quite aged. Mercy m. 1687,
John Fowler of Westfield, WILLIAM, Wethersfield, E. side of the riv.
wh. bec. Glastonbury, s. of the preced. was a tanner, had decent est. of
�348. and d. 1705, leav. William, aged 11; John, 4; Jonathan, 1; and
three ds. of wh. with ret. of the inv. the names and ages appear, Mary,
8; Martha, 7; and Sarah, 6; all 1iv. in 1721, to claim portion as heirs
of their gr.f. of cert. wild lds. in Northfield. Chapin, 192, has a slight
error; in giv. him a br. John. For his w.'s name, that is not ment. at
Glastonbury, we may succeed in the rec. of Saybrook, by find. that he
m. 19 Apr. 1693, Mary Bushnell, I suppose d. of John, and there had
William, b. 9 Feb. foll. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at
Harv. ten at Yale, and fifteen at other N. E. coll.

    MILLERD, MILLARD or MILWARD, BENJAMIN, JOSEPH, ROBERT,
and SAMUEL, were of Rehoboth 1690. THOMAS, Gloucester, a fisherman,
or mariner, was selectman 1642, rem. to Newbury, had Ann, perhaps
b. there in Nov. of that yr.; Rebecca; and Elizabeth aft. but did not sell
his est. at G. bef. 1652. He made his will 30 Aug. 1653, and d. 2 days
aft. at Boston. I think his d. Rebecca m. 27 May 1656, at Boston,
Thomas Thorpe. Coffin supposes he was that mate of the Hector,
ment. in Winthrop I. 187; but I doubt it. W. Ann, and ch. Rebecca and
Elizabeth under 18 yrs. are ment. in the will.

    MILLET, JOHN, Gloucester, s. of Thomas of the same, m. 3 July
1663, Sarah Leach, had John, b. 23 Oct. 1665, d. soon; Hannah, 9
Mar. 1667; John, again, 22 Apr. 1669; Thomas, 23 Nov. 1671; Sarah,
1 July 1674, d. next yr. Andrew, 9 May 1676, d. in few days; and Elizabeth
24 Oct. 1677; and he d. 3 Nov. 1678, leav. wid. Sarah. NATHANIEL,
Gloucester, br. of the preced. m. 3 May 1670, Ann, d. of Andrew Lester,
had Mary, b. 29 June 1671, d. young; Daniel, 31 July 1673, d. next
day; Thomas, 9 Mar. 1675; Nathaniel, 2 Mar. 1677; Abigail, 12 Oct.
1679; Andrew, 6 July 1681; beside 5 more, of wh. one was Nathan, b.
1685. His w. d. 9 Mar. 1718, and he d. 7 Nov. 1719. RICHARD,
prob. came in the fleet with Winthrop but no more of him is kn. than that
he req. adm. 19 Oct. 1630, when his name is spelled Myllett, and was
sw. freem. 11 June 1633. THOMAS, Dorchester, came in the Elizabeth,
from London, 1635, aged 30, with w. Mary, 29, and ch.Thomas, 2; had
here, John, 8 July 1638; Jonathan, 27 July 1638, d. next mo.; Mary, 21
Aug. 1639; and Mehitable, 14 Mar. 1642; Nathaniel, 1647; perhaps also
