1624, and his will wh. names the ds. Mercy, Hannah, and Elizabeth provid. for
the wid. wh. d. 1709. RALPH, Ipswich 1647, fisherman. had w. Esther and ch.
John, b. 12 Mar. 1659; Samuel, 28 Aug. 1661; rem. next yr. to Reading, had
there Stephen, 18 June 1664; and Stephen, again, 14 Dec. 1672; freem. 1684,
and d. 1688. Of his descend. are Rev. Samuel, H. C. 1758, and J. A. Dix, late
U. S. senator from New York. RALPH, Malden, freem. 1685, had liv. at
Reading yrs. bef. SAMUEL, from Norwich, Eng. had leave to emb. at Great
Yarmouth 8 Apr. 1637, being aged 43 yrs. with w. Joane, 38; two ch.
Priscilla, and Abigail; and two serv. William Storey, and Daniel Linsey, to
come to Boston to inhabit, but I have not yet learn. where he sat down.
WILLIAM, Hartford, perhaps br. of Leonard, a single man, d. Mar. 1676 or 7.
Six of this name, in 1834, had been gr. at Harv.

    DIXER. See Dixey.

    DIXEY, JOHN, Salem 1639. Felt. One JOHN, of Salem, m. 9 Dec. 1679, Sarah
Collins; but he prob. was s. of the first Thomas. THOMAS, Salem 1637, had there
bapt. Mary, 12 Jan. 1645; Abigail, 1 Oct. 1648; Thomas, 29 Jan. 1654; Margaret,
16 Mar. 1656; and John, 26 Apr. 1657; was of Marblehead 1674, d. 1691. Ano.
Thomas, at Marblehead, sign. the petn. against imposts 1668, as did the
Salem man. Yet perhaps it was the same man, for in such cases it is
sometimes thot. that more value attaches to the number than to the
argum. and undue artifice is employ. to swell the list. Margaret, aged 18,
was one of the serv. of Percival Greene, emb. at London 1635, in the
Susan and Ellen. WILLIAM, Salem, had come to Cape Ann 1629, was next at
Lynn, had bapt. at S. Abigail, 25 Dec. 1636; Ann, 17 May 1638; John, 1639;
Elizabeth 1641; and others; freem. 14 May 1634; was capt., of Beverly, a. 1677,
and d. 1690, aet. 82. Lewis. Felt. Gibbs. Whitman. 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII.

Samuel Morgan.

    DIXON, JEREMIAH, New Haven 1639, one of the seven for found. of the
ch. 4 June, rem. bef. 1644. WILLIAM, prob. was of Charlestown 1633-8,
Kittery 1649, freem. 1652, d. Mar. 1666, perhaps then of York. In his will
of 13 Feb. of that yr. gave to w. Joan, s. James, d. Susanna Frost, perhaps
w. of Charles, to John Brown, and to childr. of Henry Milbury. Seven of
this name, beside four call. Dickson, had, in 1834, been gr. at the N. E.
coll. tho. none of either at Harv. See Dickson.

    DIXWELL, JAMES, New Haven, a propr. 1685, unless the rec. be wrong,
as by confus. with the assum. surname, I suspect. JOHN, Dorchester 1640,
gave his sh. with others, in Thompson's Isld. 7 Feb. 1642, for support of a
free sch. My insert. of this name should be accomp. with explanat. that
no other notice of such an one, near that time, is found. What thus I read
in the lithograph copy publish. by the Dorchester Antiq. and Hist. Soc. as
frontisp. to that Ed. of Blake's Ann. 1846, the No. on the list being 47, is
by a writer of considerab. research, in Geneal. Reg.
