Jonathan Barrett. ISAAC, Chelmsford, s. of the preced. serv. at the
Narraganset fight, 19 Dec. 1675, as a soldier in Davenport's comp. and
was then wound.; m. 23 July 1679, Sarah, d. of John Bigelow, had
Isaac, b. 10 May 1680; Sarah, 16 Mar. 1682; Abigail, 11 Mar. 1684;
Mary, 12 Apr. 1686; William, 12 Feb. 1688; Ebenezer, Sept. 1690;
Samuel, 4 Oct. 1692; Hannah, 16 Sept. 1694; Elizabeth 27 July 1696;
Moses, 29 Apr. 1699; and Martha, 2 May 1702; and he d. 15
Sept. 1737. WILLIAM, Charlestown 1632, may have come two yrs.
bef. but is first heard of in join. the ch. with his w. Goodith in Dec.
being the first adm. since the separat. from Boston ch.; was freem. 14
May 1634, selectman 1636, and in the same office first at the sett. off of
town of Woburn to uh. he rem. 1641. In the gr. trouble of 1637 he
was on the side of moderat. so far as to disappr. the banishm. of Wheelwright.
He d. says the rec. 1 Mar. but Frothingham, wh. may have
reason, says 5 Apr. 1646. A wid. Sarah says the rec. d. 24 Jan. 1661,
at Malden, and I find admin. 2 Apr. foll. on est. of wid. Jane (but no
doubt the same person), of M. yet I am wholly unable to guess wh.
would have been the h. unless she were a sec. w. of William, or we presume
the rec. of adm. into the ch. means only to designate her as his w.
without giv. a name. This to me seems the best solution.

    LEATHERS, EDWARD, Dover 1665. Perhaps he was common. regard.
as of Gipsey blood.

    LEAVENWORTH, DAVID, and THOMAS, Woodbury, as Cothren, in his
Hist. p. 612, tells by aid of tradit. came a 1690 from Germany; and
that David was drown. in youth; and of Thomas, nothing. But one of
my Hartford correspond. refers to the State archives as contain. a docum.
of 11 June 1684, by Grace L. wid. of Woodbury, and my own suspic.
is that the German derivat. should be some centuries earlier.

    LEAVER, THOMAS, Rowley 1643, town clk. m. Damaris, d. of James
Bayley of the same; and we hear no more, but that he d. 27 Dec. 1683,
leav. prob. Thomas, and, perhaps, others; certain. Prudence, b. 1 Jan.
1645, wh. m. 11 Oct. 1671, Benjamin Gage, as his sec. w. and, next, 6
Apr. 1674, Samuel Stickney.

    LEAVITT, ARATUS, Hampton, s. of Thomas, m. Ruth, d. of Thomas
Sleeper
, wh. d. 10 Jan. 1726; and he d. 14 Jan. 1739. HEZRON,
Hampton, s. of Thomas, m. 25 Sept. 1667, Martha, d. of Anthony
Taylor
, had Lydia, b. 5 Aug. 1668; John, 24 Nov. 1670; James, 31
Jan. 1673, d. soon; Moses, 30 Jan. 1674; Thomas, 8 May 1677, d.
young, prob.; and James, again, 1686. ISRAEL, Hingham, 8. of John,
m. 10 June 1677, Lydia, d. of Abraham Jackson of Plymouth, had
John, b. 6 July 1678 (wh. d. 29 July 1749, leav. John, wh. d. 13 Apr.
1797, in 86th yr.); Israel, 1 Aug. 1680; Solomon, 24 Feb. 1682;
