JOHN, Newbury, perhaps s. of Thomas of the same, d. says Coffin, 20
Feb. 1699. The Prob. rec. supplies us with inv. of ano. JOHN, perhaps
of Beverly, s. of Abraham, wh. d. 29 Dec. 1681, leav. no w. or ch. but
the admor. was order. June 1682, to pay his minor brs. Isaac and Abraham.

of the same. NATHANIEL, Salisbury, prob. s. of Thomas, took o. of
alleg. 28 Nov. 1677, m. 26 Aug. 1685, Mary Osgood, perhaps d. of
John of Salisbury, had Reuben, b 17 Mar. 1686, Ruth, 14 Oct. 1688;
and I presume he is the man who m. June 1710, wid. Mary Ring.
THOMAS, Newbury, is, in my opin. that passeng. in the Confidence from
Southampton, 1638, call. serv. of John Rolfe, and by Henry, br. of
John R. in his will nam. as "kinsman." tho. in Geneal. Reg. V. 440,
and XIV. 335, his name is giv. Whittle, was some time at Salisbury,
there by w. Ruth had Mary, b. 9 Oct. 1647; John, 23 Dec. 1649; soon
after rem. to Haverhill, had Ruth, 6 Nov. 1651; Thomas, 12 Jan.
1654; Richard, 27 June 1663; and Joseph, 8 May 1669; was freem.

1675, Joseph True. A descend. in our day, the poet of Haverhill, has
"warbled his native woodnotes wild," with success equal. by very few of
our bards. Sometimes it is seen Whitheire or Whitheare.

Baruch, and gr.s. of William, the disting. reform. in the Eng. ch. exil.

How Rev. Samuel Hough was his br. I dn not kn. exc. in the bonds of

looseness in the fam. story, of the Boston Weekly Journal of Jan. 1730,

to believe, that his mo. "came over, and was deliv. of a s. wh. she nam.
