of wh. we kn. only that he d. unm. 21 by rec. but by gr.st. 30 Mar.
1718 in 80th yr. WILLIAM, Newton, by w. Elizabeth had William b. 31
Aug. 1687; and by sec. w. Ann, wid. of Thomas Lovering of Watertown,
wh. bore him no ch. m. 29 Aug. 1695, had Joanna, b. 28 Oct. foll. if
Jackson be correct, wh. adds that he d. 1697. Seventeen of this name
at Harv. three at Yale, and seventeen at all the other N. E. coll. are
found by Farmer as gr. in 1834.

    THOMPSON, TOMSON, THOMSON or TOMPSON, ANBROSE, Woodbury,
s. of the first John of Stratford, by w. Sarah, had John, Ambrose, and
other ch. bef. 1701, but had a sec. w. bef. 1706. Grievous was the error
of Goodwin, 254, in mak. his w. Sarah to be wid. of Benjamin Beach.
ANTHONY, New Haven, 1639, br. of the sec. John and first William of
the same, prob. came with Gov. Eaton, with w. and two ch. John, and
Anthony, had Bridget b. here, and by sec. w. Catharine had three more
ch. Hannah, bapt. 8 June 1645; Lydia, 25 (not 24, as the careless ch.
rec. has it) July 1647; and prob. posthum.; Ebenezer, 15 Oct. 1648;
and he had some mos. bef made his will 1648. His d. Bridget m. John
Bowers wh. bec. first min. at Derby; Hannah m. a Staunton; Lydia m.
20 Sept. 1665, Isaac Crittenden; and the wid. m. 14 July 1652, Nicholas
Camp of Milford. ANTHONY, Milford, s. of the preced. had no w.
or ch. and d. bef. mid. age, in his will of 26 Dec. 1654, giv. his prop. to
br. John, own sis. Bridget, and three half sis. ch. of goodwife Camp. wh.
had been sec. w. of his f. ARCHIBALD, Marblehead 1637, was drown.
Nov. 1641, as Winthrop tells, II. 43. BENJAMIN, Braintree, s. of Rev.
William, of some distinct. as a physician, schoolmr. town clk. 1696, and
even poet, monoculus inter coecos; yet more claim our regard as leav.
at his d. 13 Apr. 1714, eight ch. and 28 gr.ch. His w. was Susanna, d.
prob. of Philip Kirtland, the first of Lynn; their ch. were Abigail, b. at
Boston, 25 Nov. 1670; Susanna, 10 June 1673; Ann, 2 Dec. 1677;
both at Charlestown; Elinor, 29 Nov. 1679, at Braintree, as were the
others; Benjamin, 8 Nov. 1682; Elizabeth 14 Jan. 1685; Philip, 26 July
1687; Sarah, 23 Sept. 1689; and Mary, 29 Oct. 1692; and the sch.
master adds to the rec. quos omnes Deus ominpotens, sui filii unigeniti
ac servatoris nostri meritis vita eterna dignetur. His w. d. he says, 27
July 1693. I judge he was keep. the sch. at Roxbury, where his d. Mary
d. 28 Mar. 1700. Having been gr. at Harv. bef. Cotton Mather was b.
he gain. the advant. as master of the Boston gram. sch. of helping
forward the precoc. youth, wh. in burdensome gratitude, enlivens the
Magn. III. 160, with the strains that his cousin Whiting's d. drew from
T. DANIEL, Newbury, said to be 40 yrs. old in 1678, if the list in Gen.
Reg. VII. 350 be not wrong, as by the silence of Coffin may be feared.
DAVID, Piscataqua, sent out by Gorges in 1623, rem. a. 1626, to that isl.
