next yr. Hinman, p. 61, mistakes Hugh for this br. as being with Col.
Fenwick, at his first coming to Saybrook, whereas Thomas was not there
so early as four yrs. aft. his sec. visit. But he obey. the guidance of Dr.
Trumbull, common. safe. In the life of hugh Peter (a work wh. for

thought it hazardous to quote), the oldest br. of Hugh call. WILLIAM,
is said to have liv. at Boston, and to have had s. John, Andrew Thomas,
William, Samuel, and Joseph. After very diligent search, no William is
found, either in Boston, or its vicinity; and I suppose this maybe regarded
as one of the many inventions of that book. WILLIAM, Andover,
s. of Andrew, prob. was k. by the Ind. 13 Aug. 1696. Six of this name
had, 1834, been gr. at Yale and four at Harv. Coll.

    PETERSON, CORNELIUS, Boston 1685. HENRY, and JOHN of Lyme,
were of the train band 1678, and no more is kn. of either, exc. that John
was aft. of Duxbury, and m. Mary, d. of George Soule; and that Henry
by w. Marah, m. 15 Apr. 1683, had Sarah, b. 20 Oct. 1686.

    PETTIFORD, PETFORD or PITTFORD, PETER, Salem, 1641, Mr. Felt
found ment. of, but nothing is told of him, exc. that heresid. at Marblehead
1648. Among Charlestown bapt. is Samuel, s. of Mary Pettiford,
br. Baker's d. on 12 Sept. 1669.

    PETTELL, ANTHONY, Marblehead 1653, a fisherman, perhaps from

    PETTIBONE, JOHN, Windsor, freem. 1658, m. 15 Feb. 1665, Sarah, d.
of Bigot Egglestone, had John, b. 15 Dec. 1665; Sarah, 24 Sept. 1667,
d. young; Stephen, 3 Oct. 1669; besides Samuel, and sev. ds. of wh.
was ano. Sarah, of uncert. date. He had est. in that part made Simsbury,
was one of the first sett. and there with John, Stephen, and Samuel,
was liv. 1712. Three of the name have been gr. at Yale.

prob. b. bef. Nicholas. He m. sec. w. 1703, wid. Jemima French, it is
said, d. of Peter Cheney, but perhaps that is wrong, or coffin has confus.
