the Amesbury rec. gives the name; and Rebecca, wh. m. Moses Morrill.
Deborah m. 19 Dec. 1663, Samuel Davis. He was one of the first sett.
of Amesbury a. 1654. It has been thot. that he is the man in the list of
passengers by the Globe from London for Virginia, 1635, and the names

sides of the ocean, that the argument must not be pressed too far. Some
persons might, at that time, think it easy to go from one part of America
to another; but most of those for Virginia were not puritans, and all wh.
would come to New Eng. especially from London, easily gained direct,
instead of circuitous passage. Of this name, includ. those spelt without e,

the name, out of regard to that Eccl. Hist. of N. E. call. the Magnalia,
III. 4, where this man is insert. in the third classis, tho. with studied
carelessness, Mather omits his bapt. name. Caulkins could find no more
than this useful designat. for this side of the water; while in vain I search ,
