    KITCHERELL, KETCHERWELL, KETCHERING or KECHERELL, sometimes
with the first let. C., JOSEPH, Charlestown 1636, perhaps the same,
whose w. perhaps, or sis. Sarah on adm. there by the ch. 30 Nov. 1643,
is spell. Kitcherin, and for wh. Felt shows, in Salem, gr. of ld. 1639,
and adm. to the ch. in the same yr. I doubt he was not many yrs. at
either place, being mark. in the ch. rec. as drown. as in Essex Inst. Coll.
I. 39, where the c is mistak. for t. SAMUEL, Hartford, by w. Martha
had Martha; Samuel, and Hannah, b. 4 Jan. 1646; and d. 1650. His
wid. m. 2 Jan. 1651, Anthony Dorchester of Springfield, where Samuel

1659, Abel Wright.

    KITTREDGE, JOHN, Billerica 1661, or earlier, the ancest. of the many
thousands of the name in our ld. came, it is said, in youth with his mo.
was a farmer; had John, b. 24 Jan. 1666; James, 28 Mar. 1668;
Daniel, 23 July 1670; Jonathan, 1674, d. 1696; and Benoni, 1677,
posthum. for the f. d. 18 Oct. 1676. Much do I regret, that of those
five s. our informat. is confin. to JOHN, Billerica, s. of the preced. m. 3
Aug. 1685, Hannah, perhaps d. by sec. w. of William French,[1] had six s.
and five ds. and d. 27 Apr. 1714. He was, says Farmer, the first of
the fam. with that prefix, Dr. wh. has since been so freq. with his
progeny, of wh. three at Harv. and nineteen at other N. E. coll. had
been gr. in 1834.

    KNAPP, AARON, Taunton 1643, may have been f. of Elizabeth wh. m. 17
Feb. 1674, Nicholas Stoughton; and beside had Mary, bapt. at Roxbury,
20 Nov. 1659; and he d. bef. 1676. Baylies, II. 267, 278.
CALEB, Stamford, s. of Nicholas, freem. 1670, made his will 11 Dec.
1674, d. soon. He names w. Hannah, and ch. Caleb, wh. was b. 1661;
John, 1664; Moses; Samuel; Sarah; and Hannah. JAMES, Watertown
1652, s. of William the first, b. in Eng. m. Elizabeth d. of John
Warren, had Elizabeth b. 21 Apr. 1655; and James, 26 May 1657, wh. d.
26 Sept. foll. In the autumn of 1671, at Groton, where he then liv. his
w. suffer. terrib. by witchcraft, if the trifling story in the Magn. VI. 67,
is good for any thing. JOHN, Watertown, br. of the preced. m. 25 May
1660, Sarah Young, had John, b. 4 May 1661; and Sarah, 5 Sept.
1662; and sev. others, for his will of 22 Jan. 1696, pro. 27 Apr. foll.
tho. it names not either of these, wh. were, perhaps, d. ment. wid. Sarah,
and ch. Henry, Isaac, John, Daniel, and Abigail. JOHN, Taunton, m.
7 Oct. 1685, Sarah Austin. Possib. he was s. of the preced. JONATHAN,
Fairfield, s. of the first Roger, d. young, for his inv. is of 1 Feb.
1676. JOSHUA, Greenwich 1670, s. of Nicholas, m. 9 June 1657, at
