Elizabeth Whiting; and Deborah Hovey; beside gr.ch. Edmund, and Elizabeth Chadwick.
GEORGE, Exeter 1639, Saco 1652, was a preach. at both, and elsewhere, but,
in 1653, was forbid. by the Gen. Ct. to preach or prophesy on penalty of �10
for every offence. He had been that very yr. sworn freem. of Mass. 5 July at
Wells, but rem. to Sandwhich 1658, m. Jane, wid. of Anthony Bessey, and

perhaps s. of the preced. m. Abigail, d. of Robert Lockwood. MOSES,
Rochester, perhaps br. of Aaron of the same, had rem. thither
from Sandwich bef. 1684. THOMAS, Fairfield 1653, had been a
juror in 1645, by w. Rose acc. Hinman, in Ed. sec. p. 131, had Phebe,
Deborah, and Mary, and made his will 8 Sept. 1658. THOMAS, Boston,
by w. Elizabeth (whose ch. by two later h.'s in choos. their guardian, Joseph
Royall, call him uncle) had Elizabeth b. 13 Nov. 1657; and Sarah, 18 July

Hurd and Mary Moore. Sometimes this name appears in early rec. Barley. Joel,
kn. as the author of the Columbiad, an heroic poem, and of Hasty Pudding,

the U. S. represent. their honor and independ. foll. in the train of Napoleon
the first (like the vassal kings, wh. felt none of this American's
audacious enthusiasm), in the madman's march to Moscow, at a wretched
ho. on the desolate plains of Poland.

Hide, blushing glory, hide Pultova's day.

In Duyckinck's Cycloped. I. 391, large extr. in more than twelve pages
are giv. from the poetry of B. with impartial election from pleasant, indiffer.
