his is tenth. No sufferer in the cause of Charles Stuart can be supposed
so early to have acquir. social position and property to contribute to "the

to Andover, there m. sec. w. 16 Nov. 1681, Rebecca Hooper, perhaps d.
of William of Reading, had William, 8 Nov. 1683, d. soon; and Dorothy,
30 Jan. 1685. He d. 1715, aged 62, but this, tho. the rec. says it, seems
to me twenty yrs. short of the truth. JOSEPH, Andover, br. of the
m. 28 Feb. 1666, Elizabeth Phelps, d. perhaps of Edward the first,
had Joseph, and two ds. of wh. one, Tabitha, d. 30 Mar. 1687; and the
other d. 24 Feb. 1691. His w. d. 27 July 1692, and he m. 15 Nov. foll.
wid. Rebecca Horne, but of wh. she. was relict I see not, and d. 1722.
NATHANIEL, Lynn, wh. may have been br. of the preced. m. 16 Dec.
1662, Rebecca Hudson, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Mary, b. 13 June
1666; Nathaniel, 4 Dec. 1670 d. at less than 2 yrs.; Susanna, 12 June,
1673; Elizabeth 2 Nov. 1670; Esther, 14 Feb. 1678; Sarah, 13 May 1681;
Jemima, 20 Jan. 1684; and William 23 Apr. 1686. He d. 12 Jan.
1722; and his wid. d. 16 May 1724. Mary m. Moses Haven of
Framington. ROBERT, Portsmouth R. I. is among the freem. of 1655.
SAMUEL, Charlestown, freem. 1680, by w. Lydia had Lydia b. 27 Oct.
1670; John, 23 Nov. 1672; wh. d. at 30 yrs.; and Elizabeth 24 Feb. 1673; and
his w. d. 1 May 1678. On 1 Sept. foll. he m. Hannah Belcher, perhaps eldest d.
of Andrew the first; wh. d. 14 May 1691; and 4 Sept. foll. he m. third w.
Lydia Hale; was a lieut. and d. 12 Nov. 1708, aged 70. WILLIAM,
Lynn 1630, as claim. for him, tho. of that date I feel less confident
than of that of 1634, when he came in the Mary and John, Capt. Sayres,
from London, tak. the oath to qualify him for embarc. 26 Mar. had w.
