the name Wills may, in sev. old rec. be stretched as I have done it.
Easily, too, the initial letter is mistaken for M.

    WILMARTIN. See Wilmot.

    WILMORE, GEORGE, Portsmouth, R. I. 1638.

    WILMONT or WILMARTH, or WILMOUTH, ALEXANDER, New Haven,
fourth s. of William, m. a d. of Francis Brown. BENJAMIN, New
Haven, sw. fidel. 1647, had been prob. resid. sev. yrs. in his will of 7
Aug. 1669, "aged a. fourscore," names three ch. Benjamin, Ann, w. of
William Bunnill, and William, the first two of wh. were d. three ch. of
the first s. and four of the d. to stand in place of their parents; but the
whole prop. was small. BENJAMIN, New Haven, s. of the preced. was
b. in Eng. and one of the signers of the orig. compact of civ. governm.
1639, unless the signat. be his f's (wh. is less prob.) m. Elizabeth wid. of
the f. of James Heaton, had Hannah, b. 25 Jan. 1645; Mary, as Mr.
White reads the rec. or as ano. eye of equal experience made it Mercy,
16 Feb. 1647; both bapt. 21 May 1648; and Elizabeth bapt. 23 Sept. 1649.
He d. 8 Apr. 1651, and his wid. m. 8 Feb. 1660, William Judson;
Hannah m. 9 Apr. 1667, Samuel Miles as his sec. w.; Mary or Mercy
m. 15 July 1679, but the name of her h. is lost; and Elizabeth m. John
Mix
. DENJAMIN, New Haven, perhaps s. of William, had Hannah, b.
9 Dec. 1701. JOHN, Rehoboth, had Ruth, b. 5 Oct. 1673; Mehitable,
19 June 1675, tho. Col. rec. has it 1665; Nathaniel, 20 Sept. 1677;
Dorothy, 26 Aug. 1680; Sarah, 21 Dec. perhaps, 1682. JOHN, Boston
1662, prob. d. in 1670, for his inv. of 11 Feb. 1671, brot. in 4 May of
that yr. by John and Sarah Smith, wh. had been his wid. amt. �171.
10s. of wh. apparel in L12. and ld. lying betw. Whitcomb's and Wharton's
houselots, makes larger part, acquires explanat. from the Gen. Ct.
rec. of 8 June foll. as seen in IV. pt. 2d. p. 500, when it seems that he
had left a ch. under age to wh. said John and Sarah should on his or
her maturity pay L50. tho. it demands more. Explanat. may be circuitously
gain. from the deed. of 19 Apr. 1670, in Reg. VI. 253, from Elizabeth
wid. of George Ruggles, to her d. Sarah, late w. of John Wilmot, mariner,
dec. JONATHAN, Rehoboth, m. 29 Dec. 1680, Esther Peck, had
Esther, b. 28 Nov. 1681; Rebecca, 30 Aug. perhaps 1683. Farmer
MS. has NATHANIEL, who d. 12 Nov. 1676, but he could not mark his
resid. exc. as Mass. however Rehoboth rec. shows he was bur. that day.
NICHOLAS, Boston, by w. Mary had Mary, b. 5 Mar. 1650; Elizabeth 26
Sept. 1657; if we believe the unhappy copy of rec. in the office of our
Register, that gives next, Abigail, 2 Oct. 1657; and Hannah, 10 Feb.
1660; and leaves us to suppose these four were all. The orig. has
prob. been lost a century and a half. Yet justly as we may, in some
cases, distrust this copy of what was, perhaps, a true orig. it must
