cont. this obit. notice: "On the 2d inst. d. at Ipswich, Mr. Joseph Eveleth
in the hundred and seventh yr. of his age--left sev. ch. of a great age,
one of wh. is upwards of 70 yrs. old." Reasonab. therefore, may we believe
that John, or Joseph, ran something over a century.

    EVERDEN, ANTHONY, Providence, took the o. of alleg. May 1666.
RICHARD, Providence, sw. alleg. June 1668. THOMAS, Salem 1682, a Quaker
preach. WALTER, from Kent, an aged man, employ. in manuf. of gunpowder,
was in Mass. Aug. 1674. Hutch. Coll. 468.

    EVERED, ANDREW, York, made freem. of Mass. 1652, was liv. 1680, to
sw. alleg. to the k. Sometimes it is Everest. * JOHN, with a perpetual
alias Webb, for surname, Boston, from Marlborough in Wilts, emb. in the
James at Southampton Apr. 1635, arr. 3 June, had large est. from 1656, as
also at Chelmsford, where he was capt. and rep. 1663, 4, and 5, spent the
last 5 or 6 yrs. of life in that part afterwards Dracut, and d. 16 Oct.
1668. His will of 10 Feb. 1666, bestows £50 on ch. of Boston, names w.
Mary, six serv. his niece Rebecca, w. of John Arsleby of Andover, and her
brs. John, Robert, Thomas, Peter, and Nathaniel Eayres, or Ayres, of
Haverhill, and the eldest s. of John Bishop of Nantucket, beside cous. or
neph. James Breedane, and br. William Dinsdale of Boston, and Rev. John
Fiske, wh. with Thomas Hincksman he made overseers of this will, from all
wh. it may be presum. he left no descend. STEPHEN, perhaps br. of the
preced. hav. the same alias, and com. in the same sh. with him. No more is
kn. of him. It may be unavailing to ask why this fam. is describ. in all the
rec. by a double surname, as was the progen. of famous Oliver Cromwell,
by the precession of Williams. Webb was a com. name in Wilts, and in many
other parts of Eng. WILLIAM, Charlestown, without the alias, m. 30 Jan.
1659, Sarah Fillebrown.
