was rec. into the ch. Apr. 1650, yet I find not in Budington's
valua. list his adm. tho. he was chos. deac. Feb. 1672. Nor is the

    LUDLOW, GEORGE, a gent. with prefix of respect, req. adm. 19 Oct.
1630 as freem. was, perhaps, kinsman of Roger L. then one of the
Assist. and may have accomp. him in the Mary and John to Dorchester,
but prob. went home in the spring of the foll. yr. for it may be infer.
from Col. Rec. of 1 Mar. that a petit. from Eng. had been receiv. to wh.
his attent. was to be request. by the Gov. and Council. HENRY,
Huntington, L. I. adm. freem. of Conn. 1664; may have been s. of

Mary and John from Plymouth, May 1630, an Assist. chos. at the last
gen. court in London, 10 Feb. 1630, and first attend. at the first Assist.

the civil line was chief of a commiss. of eight from Mass. with unlimit.
power, 1636, for some time; was engag. in the Pequot war; and the
first dept.-gov. of the Col. of CODD. rem. to Fairfield a. 1639, and early

employ. in 1646 for reduc. their laws to a system, and was Commissnr.
1651, 2, and 3 in the congr. of the Unit. Col. of N. E. but went off
next yr. to Virg. in some disgust, and there pass. the residue of his days,
under a maledict. for carrying away the town rec. wh. was a charge
long aft. refut. by find. the vol. in town. He had a ch. b. at W. but the
does not tell the Dame; and his d. Sarah m. Rev. Nathaniel Brewof
Brookhaven. That the habit. heedlessness of Mather, II. 33,
made his name William, is less matter of surprise than that Farmer was
blinded by the blunder. Its origin was prob. reading Mr. as abbrev. for
William.
