Mar. 1685, and only the wid. and two s. to have int. in it. In no other
case have I seen this female name enjoy. by a man. The surname is
sometimes writ. by mistake for Morse.

1663; Mercy, 8 Jan. 1666 Sarah, 3 Feb. 1670; Elizabeth 12 Sept. 1672;

to bear arms 1643, rem. to Braintree, m. 1656, Hannah, Shooter had

Nicholas, b. 21 June 1672. He was abus. as a Quaker, by Gov. Bellingham,
and rem. to whence he came. But ano. kind of abuse was
practis. in the change of his Christian name at Boston, for the Friend's
rec. prove that it was: EDWARD, and that at Newport, by w. Christian,
he had Edward, b. 24 Mar. 1669; and at Boston, Nicholas, 29 May
1671, wh. prob. d. soon; and Nicholas, again, agreea. to Boston rec. 21
June 1672.
