    HUNTINGTON, CHRISTOPHER, Norwich, s. of that Simon, wh. d. of smallpox, on his passage from Eng. to Boston 1633, brot. with his brs. says the contem. ch. rec. of Roxbury, by their mo. Margaret, wh. liv. at R. until 1635 or 6, when hav. m. Thomas Stoughton of Dorchester, the fam. rem. to Windsor; bef. com. of age he was at Saybrook, there liv. many yrs. was freem. 1658, but m. at Windsor, 7 Oct. 1652, Ruth, d. of William Rockwell, had Christopher, b. Jan. 1653, d. soon; Ruth, Apr. 1658; Christopher, again, 1 Nov. 1660, the first male of the new town of Norwich; Thomas, 18 Mar. 1664; John, 15 Mar. 1666; Susanna, Aug. 1668; Lydia, Aug. 1672; and Ann, 25 Oct. 1675; and he d. prob. 1691, tho. it is not ment. in rec. Ruth m. Samuel Pratt of Saybrook, and d. 1683; and Susanna m. 10 Dec. 1685, Samuel Griswold. Descend. of this man and his br. Simon have been of the most reput. charact. in civ. and eccles. and milit. serv. especially in the war of Independ. Tradit. for a wonder, made the com. of the ancest. many yrs. later than the truth; but to show its capacity for error, it ridiculous. carr. him to Conn. riv. where not more than three ships from the century and a half bef. our Revo. came; and at the time of his emigr. near the close of the reign of Charles I. as it tells, he had br. Samuel, "a capt. of the King's life guard, much in his favor." Of this absurdity a hardihood of conject. may suggest, that it means capt. of the guard of the royal prison. during his sad confinem. at Carisbrook castle. See Geneal. Reg. I. 343, and the sweet morsel repeat. in V. 163. Had the story nam. the place of resid. in Eng. we should be more grateful, and almost forgive the common looseness of the modern fam. legend with its careless chronol.
