young; Samuel, 1 Mar. 1691; John, 30 Nov. 1694; Margaret; James,
26 Oct. 1696; Deborah; Elizabeth Aug. 1699; Elisha, 5 Mar. 1701; and
Lydia, again, 7 July 1704; in the order giv. by Jackson; but Bond
substitutes for Deborah, Sarah, 6 Mar. 1695, add. that she m. Jonathan
, with wh. Jackson, 280, concurs. He was freem. 1685, k. at
Groton, by the Ind. 21 July 1706, unless Butler in his Hist. be mistak.
as Jackson, 366, renders prob. That very careful collector, p. 96, refers
to Penhallow: for his extract; but in that writer I do not discov. the
passage. Yet Homer, in his Hist. of N. had print. the same passage, 1
Mass. Hist. Coll. V. 273. It is curious, that both the other sufferers at
G. on that day, were of N. I suppose they were part of a garrison
at G. But this John d. 11 July 1706, and made his will 29 Apr.
preced. "under a languish. sickness." Some mistake of the town was
made. TIMOTHY, Newbury, youngest s. of the first James, m. 1696,
Mary Lancaster, had Ezra, b. 31 Mar. 1697, Abigail, 26 Nov. 1698;
and, perhaps, more.

    MITCHELL, ANDREW, Charlestown, had Mary, bapt. 2 Dec. 1688;
Abigail, 17 Feb. 1689; Sarah, Elizabeth 7 Jan. 1694; and Andrew, 28
Jan. 1695. His w. was Abigail. DAVID, Stratford, br. of Jonathan,
came prob. with his f. 1635, in the James from Bristol, arr. at Boston 16
Aug. and accomp. his f. to Saybrook, thence to Wethersfield for some
and Stamford, taught the h. at Watertown, perhaps Dec. 1649, at
least was invit. for that object, and soon aft. rem. to Stratford, where
certain. he was in 1665, when he had two s. but who was the mo. or
when the f. d. are all unkn. Cothren, 634, names four s. Matthew,
John, Jonathan, and; Abraham, and tho. the d. of the f. name of the mo.
or b. of either of the four is sought in vain, he permits us to infer that
the two ment. in 1665 may have been Abraham and Matthew, but that
John was older than Abraham. In Nov. 1675 he was entrust. by the
Council of war with import. affairs. EDWARD, Hingham, came in the
Diligent, 1638, but we kn. no more of him, exc. that he was from Old
Hingham. EDWARD, Bridgewater, s. of Experience m. Mary, d. of
Thomas Hayward, and in 40 yrs. by her had no ch. m. next, 1708,
Alice, d. of major John Bradford, had Mary, b. 1709; Alice, 1714;
and Edward, 7 Feb. 1716, wh. d. 23 Dec. 1801, the gr.f. of Nahum,
H. C. 1789. He d. 1717, and his wid. m. deac. Joshuah Hersey of Hingham.
EXPERIENCE, Plymouth, a youth, came in the Ann, 1623, had
been one of the goodly comp. at Leyden, where he left a br. Thomas,
who d. there. Perhaps he was under the care of Francis Cook, at least,
he is of his comp. in partak. sh. of cattle 1627, and soon aft. m. his d.
Jane, was of Duxbury aft. 1631, and long aft. rem. to Bridgewater,
there d. 1689, aged above 80 yrs. His ch. were Elizabeth wh. m. 1645,
