and his est. was part in Medfield, set off from D. 1651. His w. d. 9
May 1662. * JOHN, Medfield, s. prob. of the preced. brot. from Eng.
by his f. 1637, was freem. 1663, and rep. 1683, of wh. we should gladly
kn. more, than that he m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Wood. JOHN, Newport,

m. 1695, Mehitable Kimball. RICHARD, Salem 1637, rem. to Boston,
was a mariner, by w. Martha, d. of Christopher Stanley, as we may
infer from the will of Susanna Phillips, wh. had been w. of S. had Samuel,
b. 11 July 1652, and perhaps others. We may obs. the want of
precise use of words, when T. in convey. of part of ship to William
Phillips, Sept. 1650, calls him f.-in-law, only bec. he (Phillips) had m.
the wid. mo. of vendor's w. * THOMAS, prob. s. of the first John, bapt.
in Eng. was of Medfield, m. 13 Dec. 1655, Sarah Thaxter, d. prob. of
Thomas of Hingham, had John, b. 4 Mar. 1657; Thomas, 11 Feb. 1659;

a man of much usefuln. serg. in 1675, bef. the war, made lieut. in 1678,
and rep. 1686, in the last Ct. bef. the abolit. of the good old Chart.

was sent away in the same sh. THOMAS, Hampton, sw. alleg. 1678,
and mark. by Dr. Belkn. 1681, as hav. been b. 1649, wh. was slight
ground for fear that he might be the Quaker, wh. emb. 30 May 1656,
aged 34, at London, in the Speedwell, and arr. at Boston, 27 July. But
this passeng. was prob. ret. by the same vessel; and Belkn. and Farmer,
and Geneal. Reg. VII. 203, 4, all spell without s the name of this Hampton
man, wh. authority united does not prevail with me. He was Provost
marshall in 1684, employ. by the Ct. THOMAS, Wrentham, perhaps
s. of the first Thomas, by w. Mehitable, had Mehitable, b. 1 Aug. 1686;
Mary, 16 Mar. 1688, d. soon; Thomas, 2 Nov. 1689; Ichabod, 9 Aug.

two at Yale had been gr. in 1851.

    THWAITS, ALEXANDER, Concord, came in the Hopewell from London,
1635, aged 20, perhaps d. or rem. early, or the giv. of his corn to

he may be seen sw. alleg. to Charles II. 8 Sept. 1665.
