    TETHERLY, GABRIEL and WILLIAM are seen in Maine a. 1680, perhaps

is one of the grantees in the royal chart. 1663, had m. bef. com. from
Eng. Mary, d. of William Clark, of Hardwick Priors, Co. Warwick, and
had a d. b. 4 June 1640, on his voyage, and therefore nam. Seaborn; and

    THACHER or THATCHER, * ANTHONY, Marblehead, came from Salisbury
in Co. Wilts, where he had serv. occasion. as curate for Peter
Thacher 1631 and 4, the rector of St. Edmunds in that city, wh. prob.
was his br. He had been a non-conformist, liv. in Holland more than
20 yrs. bef. and emb. on 6 Apr. 1635 at Southampton in the James

Angel Gabriel, cast away, 15 Aug.) and arr. at Boston 3 June, in the
ship's clearance call. a tayler for decept. not of the inferiors at the

ship was of 300 tons, and might well have brot. 150 passeng. when so
