1638, aged 21, prob. br. of John, a fellow-passeng. both from Coversham
in Oxfordsh. and was not, I think, as Farmer said, first sett. at
Salem, freem. with John, 18 May 1642, by w. Elizabeth d. of Samuel Bidfield,
m. 19 May 1645, had says Coffin, Bidfield, b. 16 Mar. 1649, d.
young; John, 19 Nov. 1650; and Samuel, 18 Nov. 1652; and d. 19
May 1653, prob. sudden, as his will has that date. It was pro. 30 June
foll. names only ch. Jon and Samuel, made w. Elizabeth extrix. WILLIAM,
Killingworth 1665, whither he rem. from Guilford, br. of Thomas of the
same, b. in Eng. freem. 1669, m. 3 Mar. 1653, Mary, d. of John Meigs,
had John, b.3 Mar. 1654; Samuel, 1 Mar. 1656; Nathaniel, 10 May
1659, d. soon; Nathaniel, again, 29 Oct. 1661; Judith, 1 Oct. 1668;
Josiah, 8 Dec. 1670; and Mary, 2 Nov. 1677. When he d. is not
mark. but it was prob. bef. 1685, when among proprs. of G. no other of
the name, beside Nathaniel is found. Yet he may have been of K. at
that time, and giv. his G. est. to Nathaniel. Others of his ch. however
did settle at G. His w. or wid. d. 30 Apr. 1703. WILLIAM, Charlestown,
m. 1 July 1673, Abigail, Green, so comm. a name that it is perilous

and Mr. Babson says he d. 24 Sept. 1701. A wid. Ann s. perhaps the
mo. of John and William of the same, d. at Newbury, July 1650; and
a wid. S. at Newtown, L. I. 1656. Farmer omit. to ment. as he was
wont, the numb. of gr. found by Harv. Catal. fourteen, and at Yale ten,
up to 1852.

    STEVENSON, JAMES, Reading, m. 18 Apr. 1661, his w. Naomi. It is
easily made Stephenson.

    STEWART or STEWARD, oft. STUART, ALEXANDER, Charelestown,
shipwright, by w. Hannah, nam. with ch. James, and John in the will,
Jan. 1669, of her gr.f. Richard Prichard of C. of wh. I suppose James
d. young, but both prob. b. in ano. town; had at C. Hannah, Samuel,
and Margaret, all, with John, bapt. 9 May 1675, the mo. hav. d. on 21
Aug. preced. To C. he had come from ano. town, not kn. as I conject.
from that bapt. when he was not a ch. mem and rem. to Marlborough,
there m. 22 May 1688, Deborah, wid. of Daniel Farrabas, or Farrowbush,
d. of Jon Bediat, the first, of Sudbury. But a very dilig. inquir.

had by Deborah a d. and d. 6 Apr. 1731, his w. hav. d. ten or more
prob. eleven yrs. preced. DANIEL, Barnstable, was their bef. 1666, as
Mr. Hamblin says, and prob. had ch. for I find many in a third generat.
but kn. nothing of sec. DUNCAN, Newbury, shipwright, perhaps br. of
Alexander, had Martha, b. 4 Apr. 1659; Charles, 5 June 1661; James,
8 Oct. 1664; Henry, 1 May 1669; rem. to Rowley, had three more,
