    DAND, JOHN, Boston 1641, clk. in the prothonotary's office (but I hear
not where), gave much trouble by join. others in petit. for enlargem. of
privilege 1645. Winslow describes him as liv. in ano. man's house at board

211, one of the most curious papers in that invalua. collect. We might presume,

"the most considerable fam. in the sixteenth cent. at Mansfield in
Nottinghamsh." Yet they were mercers, as he tells.

    DANDY, WILLIAM, Charlestown, prob. call. Davy in Frothingham, 181, was
in 1680 one of the tythingmen of the town. See Dady.
