make a num. list in the catal. of Puritan sett. of Conn. by one in the
fifth generat. Royal R. Hinman, late Secr. of that State; but I lament
that the date of coming of the progen. as a ch. or of his parents is not
ascert. Of this indefatig. antiq. we must regret, that his assiduity was
greater than his success.

    HINSDALE, HENSDELL or HINDSELL, sometimes ENSDELL,
BARNABAS, Hatfield, s. of Robert, m. 15 Oct. 1666, Sarah, wid. of Stephen
Taylor of Hadley, d. of John White (who for third h. had Walter Hickson), by her
had Barnabas, b. 20 Feb. 1668; Sarah; Elizabeth 29 Oct. 1671; b. 1667; and Isaac, 15
Sept. 1673; and Mary, 27 Mar. 1676; rem. to Deerfield, there was k. by the Ind.
in the fight, 18 Sept. 1675, at Bloody brook. Both his s. had fams.
at Hartford. EPHRAIM, Hatfield, br. of the preced. m. 28 Sept.
1676, Mary, d. of John Plimpton, had John, b. 1677; and

Hawks, and d. 1676, leav. two ds. His wid. m. next yr. John Evans.
GAMALIEL, Medfield, is prob. error, for Samuel. JOHN, Deerfield, br. of
Ephraim, k. at the same time with his f. in Philip's war. Perhaps he had
fam. for one John H. d. at Deerfield, 1705, whose est. was giv. to a br.
and four sis. and all may have been ch. of this sufferer. ║ ROBERT, Dedham,
one of the found. of the ch. there 8 Nov. 1638, freem. 13 Mar. 1639,

mistak. for Samuel, 5, bapt. 13 Mar. 1642; Mary, 14, bapt. 25 Feb. 1644;
Experience, 23 Jan. bapt. 8 Feb. 1646; John, 27 Jan. bapt. 16 Apr.
1648, but the ch. rec. has this ch. Mary, wh. I assume to be error; and
Ephraim, 26 Sept. bapt. 27 Oct. 1650. He was of ar. co. 1645, rem.
to Medfield, where he aided in form. ch. thence to Hadley resid. sev. yrs.

wid. m. Thomas Dibble; and d. Eliz. m. at Boston 7 July 1657, James
Rising. SAMUEL, Hadley, s. of the preced. m. at Medfield, 31 Oct.
1660, Mehitable Johnson, perhaps d. of Humphrey of Roxbury, had
Mehitable, b. 18 Oct. 1663; and he is, perhaps, the same, wh. in rec. of
b. at Dedham was call. Gamaliel, by w. Elizabeth had Ann, b. at H. 22 Feb.
1666; and rem. to Deerfield, there had Nahuman, the first male, b. in
