one, but a more practis. eye gave me the assurance that the name was
Score. Nobody will dispute the prob. that Mr. Judd got hold of the
right letters. RICHARD, Boston, join. our ch. 6 Jan. 1639, had John,
bapt. next Sunday, and was dism. 24 Nov. foll. with others to form a ch.
at Rowley, freem. 13 May aft. was rep. 1666 and many yrs. more, and
d. 1678. His w. was Ann, ch. Richard, Frances, Robert, Jonathan, Susan,
or Julian, and perhaps more ch. certain. ds. Frances, m. Mark
Quilter, and Sarah m. Joseph Boynton. Julian had m. 18 Feb. 1654,
Samuel Stickney, bore him four ch. and d. bef. her f. but his will, of
1678, beside these, name ds. Abigail Bailey, Mary Kilborn, and s. Caleb
Hopkinson, John Hopkinson, and John Trumbull. I conject. that John
Trumbull rem. from Roxbury to Rowley soon aft. Swan, m. his d. Ann,
and d. 1657, leav. sev. ch. prob. Joseph and Judah among the. RICHARD,
Rowley, prob. s. of the preced. free m. 1684. ROBERT, Haverhill
1646, by w. Eliz. had prob. Robert, and perhaps Timothy and others.
ROBERT, Haverhill, prob. s. of the preced. took o. of alleg. 28 Nov.
1677, and was rep. 1684. TIMOTHY, Andover, s. of Robert the first, d.
1 Feb. 1693, aft. long afflict. suppos. by witchcraft, as Rev. Mr. Hale in
his Hist. p. 38, tells, of wh. Elizabeth Johnson, perhaps w. of Stephen, acknowl.
bef. Justice Dudley Bradstreet, 10 Aug. 1692, that she had a
hand in it, but she was so liberal in confess. many other torments bestow.
by her upon other neighbors that I believe she saved her life by her
falsehoods. See 39 Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 124. But the magistr. was slow
to believe the horrible confess. of his neighb. against themselves, and so
the baffled bloodhounds wh. rejoic. in the diabolical delus. were let loose
upon him, as a Saducee. THOMAS, Roxbury, m. Mary, d. of Thomas
Lamb, had Henry, b. in Boston (where prob. he first pursu. his. profess.),
16 May 1665, wh. d. young; and Thomas wh. d. 1668; but at R. had
Thomas, again, b. 15 Sept. 1669, H. C. 1689; Dorothy, 29 Dec. 1672;
Peter, and Dorothy, prob. tw. 1674, d. very soon; Henry, 29 Mar.
1678, d. soon; Henry, again, 24 Mar. foll.; Mary, 4 June 1681; Peter,
7 June 1684, d. soon; and Ebenezer, 12 May 1686; was a physician
and d. perhaps in Feb. 1688. His ho. was burn. in the night of 11 July
1681, for wh. Maria, a negro serv. of Joshua Lamb, being convict. by
her confess. at the Court in Sept. foll. the Gov. benignant Bradstreet,
pronunc. the sentence of d. by the form. of burn. and the horrid solemnity
was public. THOMAS, Roxbury, s. of the preced. m. 27 Dec. 1692,
Prudence Wade of Medford. Twelve of this name at Harv. and two at
Yale had been gr. in 1846.
