2 July 1696; Grindall, 24 Aug. 1697; and Mary, 1698; but the last
two d. soon. The names of these twenty ch. of wh. only five liv. to

Nov. 1682; Zerobabel, 12 May 1687; Elizabeth 14 Aug. 1687 (unless, as may

and Pilgrim, 30 Nov. 1695. JAMES, Hingham, m. Jan. 1682, wid. Hewett,

Aug. 1664; John, 23 May 1666; and Hannah, 1 Aug. 1668. Rebecca

1641. His will was copied on one of the lost pages of our Vol. I. in
Prob. Court, if we may believe the Index; and his inv. of 20 Feb. foll.
shows good est. Perhaps Mary, wh. m. 15 Nov. 1651, Samuel Deering,
