in Mr. Drake's list of names, Geneal. Reg. I. 139, should, perhaps, be
giv. to Willis. ISAAC, Boston, by w. Joanna had Isaac, bapt. in her
right, 2 Aug. 1640; Hannah, 6 Mar. 1642; rem. to Charlestown, there
had Sarah, b. 19 June 1644; rem. next yr. with John Winth. to New
London, as one of its first sett. Caulkins suppos. that "he and his w.
had pass. the bds. of mid. age, and that all their ch. were b. bef." But
this may be too large; at least we presume that Mary or Abraham, or
both, and perhaps John (tho. he is said to have work. 1651, in build. the
milldam, where he seems to be mistak. for his f.) were b. after the rem.
He was selectman 1647, is seen on the freemen's list 1669; m. a. 1671,
Ann, wid. who had been, Caulkins thinks, third w. but in my opin. only
sec. of Andrew Lester, as I much distrust the exist. of any d. Joanna,
w. of Robert Hempstead, to be tak. aft. his dec. by Lester; and he
d. a. 1685. The wid. d. 1692. Hannah m. Peter Blatchford, and,
next, Samuel Spencer of Haddam; Sarah m. John Terrill or Tyrrell,
perhaps as sec. w. d. 7 Mar. 1712; and Mary m. Samuel Tubbs.

Frances, d. of Edward Burcham of Lynn, d. 1662, leav. young wid.
who m. the same yr. Clement Miner. JOHN, N. London, br. of the
preced.
prob. younger, m. says Caulkins, 1670, tho. it seems prob. it was
in 1668, Miriam, only d. of Miles Moore, d. 2 May 1688; and the
Prob. rec. soon aft. gives the ages and names of ch. Isaac, 18¾ yrs.;
Isabel, 17; John, 14¾; Miriam, 12; Allyn, 9; Abel, 6; and Mary, 4.
JOHN, Dover 1689, s. of Thomas of the same, was in that yr. one
of the favorers of Mass. jurisdict. as in Feb. 1690, he unit. with the
great majority in petition. for it, and liv. 1697. RICHARD, Boston, m.
Elizabeth d. of capt. Edward Willis, had Ruth, and liv. not long aft. as
from the will of Willis may be infer. SAMUEL, Dover, elder br. of
John, by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 25 Feb. 1702; and perhaps more,
bef. or aft. STEPHEN, Dover, elder br. of the preced. m. Abigail Pitman,
perhaps d. of William, and was liv. 1694. THOMAS, Dover 1648,
by w. Margaret had Stephen, b. a. 1649. Samuel; and John, 1659;
was liv. 1677. WILLIAM, N. H. join. in petitn. 20 Feb. 1690, for Mass.
jurisdict. may have been s. or gr.s. of the preced.
