Joseph, 14 Apr. 1694. The stocks of Greens in our country are not
exhaust.; and ' perhaps never may be all brot. into a work like this, on
acco. of their number. Very early there was, beside the Salem wid. a wid.
Green at Roxbury, as the ch. rec. proves, and we may well imagine that
she came so from Eng. for perhaps the Jane, wh. m. 25 Dec. 1639, Martin
Stebbin, and the Mary, who m. 26 Aug. foll. Thomas Griggs, both at R. were,
one or both, her ch.; and in 1635, Thomas, a youth of 15, emb. in the
Hopewell, capt. Bundock, at London, to come hither, fellow passeng. with
Astwood, Ruggles, Payson, Whittemore, and the Eliots, who all sat down at
the same place. Ano. wid. with fam. of three was at New Haven 1643, may
have been mo. of John, but who was her h. will not be easy to learn.
Especial. hard has been the gather. of the Malden fam's. and those of the
four, five, or six Thomases. Wholly vain would it be, to discrimin. in such
a publicat. the fams. by final e, or without it, in all contempo. MSS.
letters or rec. of the elder days, ea individ. be found with either
terminat. Twenty-nine of this name, with both forms, had, in 1834, been gr.
at Harv. of wh. nine had been min. two at Yale, of wh. one was min. and
thirty-one at the other N. E. coll. of wh. one had been min.

    GREENFIELD, PETER, Salem, perhaps s. of Samuel, in 1668 sign. petitn. to the
Gen. Ct. SAMUEL, Salem, a weaver, of Norwich, Co. Norfk. came in the Mary Ann

beside John Teed, a serv. 19; _ s a short time at Ipswich, but of Hampton 1639, and of
Exeter 1645. He m. sec w. Susan, wid. of Humphrey Wise; had gr. of ld. at Salem,
but perhaps did not take it. THOMAS, Sandwich 1643.
