21 May 1741; but his w. d. 9 Mar. 1727. MATTHEW, Dorchester 1652,

27 July 1649; Nathaniel, b. 28 Sept. 1649, d. at 2 mos.; Ebenezer;
Eleazer; John, again, 15 Aug. 1660; and perhaps others; liv. in that

Elizabeth and Abigail. His wid. Mary m. 11 Apr. 1690, Benjamin Stebbins.

Farmer found gr. at Harv. Yale and Dart. two at each, and five at the

    BALLANTINE, JOHN, Boston, s. of William of the same, was a capt.
twice of ar. co. into wh. he was chos. 1682, col. of regim. by w. Lydia,
d. prob. of William Barrett of Cambridge, had John, b. 15 Mar. bapt. 4
Apr. 1675, 11. C. 1694; Lydia, b. 2 June 1676, d. young; William, 23
Aug. 1679; and Lydia, again, 24 Oct. 1682. He had sec. w. Mary
Saxton, wid. of unkn. h. whose maiden name was Woodward, whose f. by
no research has been ascert. and d. 27 Apr. 1734, in his 81st yr. and she
d. 10 Nov. 1740 in her 86th. JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 9
Mar. 1703, Mary, d. of Hon. Adam Winthrop, had John, H. C. 1735,
(that min. of Westfield, wh. d. 12 Feb. 1776); beside Mary, and William;
was of ar. co. 1694, was in high esteem, and perhaps the rep. of
1726, tho. in Geneal. Reg. Vl. 371 this honor is ascrib. to his f. wh.
was then rather advanc. in life, and whose d. was only short time bef.
that of this s. 2 Jan. foll. WILLIAM, Boston, cooper, m. 23 July 1652,
Hannah, d. of Angel Hollard (not Holland, as too often giv.) had John,
b. 29 Sept. 1653, bef. ment.; William, 22 Sept. 1655; David, 24 Aug.
1656; the two latter d. young; William, again, 20 Dec. 1657, d. young;

1665; Susanna, 2 Feb. 1667; and Jonathan, 19 Sept. 1669. His will
of 6 Dec. 1669, but few days bef. he d. names w. Hannah and only seven
ch. so that it may be conclud. that Benjamin and Sarah, not ment. had
d. young. Of the inv. of any cooper in the early yrs. I have common.
found a good result, and such was his; yet more import. are the questions
of his b. and of his coming. Differing in opin. from a disting.
descend. (Hinman in Geneal. Reg. VI. 376,) because he calls him "a
Scotch gent. from Ayr. as early as 1653," I ought to offer reasons. H.
contrary to the common error, that is of assum. too early a yr. for the
arr. of an ancest. on our shore, takes a date that would afford currency
