freem. Mar. 1638; was rep. 1637-40, and Assist. 1642 to his d. 8 Nov.
1653. He had brought £2,000, says his pastor, Rev. Peter Bulkley, in 3
Mass. Hist. Coll. I. 38; and Rev. Dr. Ripley, in his Dedic. sermon, p.
35, shows, that it was exp. chiefly for the benefit of the town. He
had other ch. perhaps one or more b. in Eng. besides Ephraim, b. 14
Jan. 1642; and John; both above ment.; but tho. his will, made 21 Dec.

JOHN, Lynn, may have rem. to Salisbury, where was one of this name,

be, wh. can discrim. this from the sec. foll. name in all instances.
