    MOSIER or MOSHIER, ARTHUR, Boston, by w. Rebecca had Lydia,
b. 25 Feb. 1678, Thomas, 22 Sept. 1619; and Samuel, 21 Jan. 1683.
Perhaps it is bec. Mosher. HUGH, Falmouth, 1640, came, perhaps, in
the Jane, from London, in eight wks. pass. arr. at Boston 12 June 1632,
was inhab. of Newport 1660, engag. in the purch. of Misquamicut, d.
bef. 1666, leav. James and John, says Willis, I.37. He had not then
acquir. the knowl. of resid. of Hugh in R. I. where he m. Rebecca, d. of
John Harndel of Newport, as sec. w. prob. unless ano. Hugh be intend.
in the will of her f. 9 Feb. 1686. See also Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 93, in
notes. Of James, we kn. only that he was admor. 1666, appoint. at the

L. I. and gave coveyance of ld. in Casco Bay.

6 Mar. foll. He rem. to Roxbury, there had Timothy, b. 17 Nov.

1654; and Isaac, 21, bapt. 30 Nov. 1655; as the print. in Geneal. Reg.
IX. 361, gives the bapt. wh. may be a mistake for Dec. The rec. of b.
may be trust. that of bapt. is certain. wrong. He was rep. 1667-70,
and then rem. to Wallingford 1670, of wh. he was rep. 1671-3, yet
contin. propr. at New Haven, d. 1707, aged 103, perhaps with slight
