    WITTEN, MICHAEL, Scarborough, acknowledg. the jurisdict. of Mass.
in Oct. 1658.

    WITTER, JOSIAH, Lynn, s. of William of the same, m. 25 Feb. 1662,
Elizabeth Wheeler, had Elizabeth b. 15 Mar. 1663; and Mary, 20 Feb. 1665;
may have been at Stonington 1670, perhaps with f. of his w. WILLIAM,
Lynn, an early sett. had w. Annis, and ch. Hannah, wh. m. a. 1650,
Robert Burden; and Josiah, bef. ment. was troubled as a Bapt. early in
1646 by prosecut. of wh. the substance may be read in Col. Rec. III.
67, but d. 1659, aged 75. His will of 5 Aug. in that yr. mak. w.
extrix. nam. s. d. and her h. was not pro. bef. June 1661. It is prob.
that Burden stands for Burdett.

    WITTOMS, PETER, Boston, m. 17 June 1652, Redigan Clark, had
Mary, b. 15 Apr. 1653; Elizabeth 26 May 1654, as the ancient copy of rec.
says, but the modern copy has it 16, perhaps to conciliate favor for the
rec. of her d. 25 May of the same yr.; and Peter, 15 May 1656.

    WIXAM or WICKSON, BARNABAS, Eastham, s. of Robert of the
same, by w. Sarah had Barnabas, b. 15 Sept. 1693, d. soon, but not,
perhaps, so early as Geneal. Reg. VII. 347, makes it; Joshua, 14 Mar.
1695; Lydia; 12 June 1697; Robert, 29 May 1698; and Prince, 2
Dec. 1700. ROBERT, Plymouth 1643; rem. to Eastham, by w. whose
name is not seen clear. had Jeremiah, b. 30 Aug. 1655; Titus, 2 Dec.
1657; Elizabeth 29 May 1660; and Martha, whose date is not found;
and d. Oct. 1686. Elizabeth m. 28 June 1673, Nathaniel Mayo the sec.
of E.

    WODELL. See Waddell.

    WOLCOTT, WALCOTT or WOOLCOT, GEORGE, Windsor 1640, s. of
the first Henry, brot. by his f. rem. a. 1650 to Wethersfield, adm. freem.
1657, but d. at W. 1662, or, as is said, 12 Feb. 1664; having by w. Elizabeth
had Elizabeth b. 1651l; George, 1653; John, 1656; and Mercy, 1659.
Very slight acco. is seen of any of this fam. Perhaps George and
John may be discern. sometimes at Wethersfield. Mary was infirm,
and under guardians; and Elizabeth m. 1686, Gabriel Cornish. HENRY,
Dorchester 1630, was b. a. 1578, in the S. part of Somerset sh. at or
near Wellington, not far from the edge of Devonsh. and thus, prob.
gain. sympathy with the puritans of the W. who project. the voyage of
the Mary and John in Mar. of that yr. He was honor. with a commiss.
from the crown, as a jutice bef. leav. home, as tradit. tells, and had
good landed est. as perhaps may be infer. from a very valua. letter of
his br. John, 15 Apr. 1639, print. in Geneal. Reg. II. 373. He desir.
adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and was sw. 1 Apr. 1634. His w. Elizabeth
Saunders, m. a. 1607, was his compan. in the traverse of the wilderness
to plant the first town, nam. Dorchester, but soon aft. Windsor, on the
