John, again, 31 Dec. 1646. Soon aft. he d. for his inv. is found at Pro.
Ct. 20 Feb. 1649, wh. I regret to add, shows little prop. and his wid. m.
William Ash, wh. rem. a. 1650 to New London, and had 3d h. Thomas
Beebee, prob. was happy to give ch. to ea. WILLIAM, New London,
mariner and ship owner, eldest s. of the preced. rem. to Middletown, m.
Oct. 1673, Esther, d. of Giles Hamlin, had William, b. 1674, d. young;
John, 1676, H. C. 1697, min. of Waterbury; William, again, 1679, d.
young; Giles, 1680; and Esther, 1682, d. soon; by sec. w. Margaret, d.
of Hon. John Allyn of Hartford, had Allyn, b. 1685; Daniel, 1687, d.
at 16 yrs.; Margaret, 1691; Ann, 18 Jan. 1693; Joseph, 1695; William,
again, 1698; and Milicent, 1700, wh. d. at 17 yrs. and he d.
Dec. 1702. His wid. wh. d. 16 Mar. 1733, in her will of 5 Dec. 1728,
names only four of her ch. Margaret Gaylord, Ann Stillman, Joseph,
and William. The name is well perpet. in Conn.

    SOUTHWELL, EBENEZER, Northampton, s. of William of the same, m.
Elizabeth d. of Samuel Judd, had Elizabeth b. 28 June 1721; and he rem. to
Suffield. ENOCH, Northampton, br. of the preced. m. 1732, but Mr.
Judd omits the w's. name, tho. he add. that he had ch. until 1743. WILLIAM,
Northampton, m. 24 Feb. 1687, Sarah, d. of John Stebbins of the
same, was freem. 1690, had Mary, b. 25 Feb. 1688; Enoch, 1689, d.
soon; Sarah, 19 Nov. 1690; Ebenezer, 17 Jan. 1694; Abigail, Apr.
1696, d. young; Hannah, 16 Sept. 1698; Enoch, again, 26 Apr. 1700;
and John, b. and d. 1703. No gain has follow. the search for this man's
origin; and perhaps one of the very few instances of emigrat. from
Eng. to our country, later than 1670, may be this of Southwell. More
than the proportion of ninety-five in the hundr. of the populat. of N. E.
in 1775, had descend. I think, from the sett. wh. came at least 25 yrs.
bef. that earlier date.

    SOUTHWICK, DANIEL, s. of Lawrence, m. 23 Feb. 1663, Esther,
d. of Joseph Boyce, had Esther, b. 26 June 1665; Elizabeth 24 June 1668;
Daniel, 25 Mar. 1671; Elinor, 25 June 1674; and Hannah, 7 Aug. 1677.
JOHN, Salem, eldest s. of Lawrence, m. Sarah, wid. of Samuel Tidd, had
Sarah, b. June 1644; Mary, 10 Oct. 1646; and Samuel, 19 Feb. 1659.
JOSIAH, Salem, br. of the preced. by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 3 Apr.
1662; Mary, Nov. 1664; Cassandra, Nov. 1667; and Ruth, 21 Feb.
1674. LAWRENCE, Salem 1639, with. w. Cassandra join. the
ch. and was adm. freem. 6 Sept. of that yr. I presume, and on 6 Dec.
foll. had John, Josiah, Daniel, and Provided bapt. at once. Other ch.
were Mary, w. of Henry Trask, and Deborah. He was, I suppose, a
glass blower, had gr. of ld. for house lot of two acres; but in the dark
days of delus. against the quakers, 1658 and 1669, the whole fam. suffer.
much, fines and imprison. fell on all, and the d. Clarissa was subj. to gr.
severity. When the fines of Daniel and Provided were unpaid, the
tender-hearted Gen. Court, with intent to magnify the glory of God,
order. them to be sold for slaves to any Christians in Virg. or Barbados.
We are permit. to rejoice, that the sentence was not enforc. and the f.
with his flock found refuge at Shelter isl. near the East end of L. I.
where in peace he made his will of 10 July 1659, allow. in 1660; James
the ch. Daniel. Provided, John, Josiah, and ds. Mary, w. of Henry
