WILLIAM, Groton, freem. 1670, d. 10 Dec. 1672, in 90th or 91st yr.
Tradit. more credib. than common makes him bring the William
and John, perhaps at the same time with William Martin of Reading,
wh. m. their mo. yet it does not tell the name of their f. nor whether
the mo. m. in Eng. to Martin, nor whether the gr.f. had w. on this
side of the water, nor when or whence he came. Both he and Martin
were engaged in planta. 1655, of Groton. Shattuck, 95, borrows the
tradit. of Butler in Hist. of G. 273, that he emigr. in his old age from
Redington. But this must be mistake, as there is no such place in Eng.
Prob. the parish of Ridlington is meant. That is a small parish in the
hundred of Martinsley, Co. Rutland, 2 and 1/4 ms. from Uppingham; or
more likely the native seat of the Lakins may have been the smaller
parish of the same name in the hundred of Tunstead, Co. Norfk. 4 and 1/4
ms. from North Walsham. If he came with Martin his old age should
not be thot. of; for he pass. above thirty yrs. here. WILLIAM, Reading,
br. of John, by w. Lydia, d. of the first Abraham Brown, had William,
b. 6 May 1655; John, 3 Jan. 1658; and Jonathan, 28 June 1661; rem.
to Groton and had Abraham, 10 Jan. 1664, d. soon; William, May
1665; Abraham, again, 11 Sept. 1667; and Elias, 8 Jan. 1669; was
freem. 1672, unless (wh. is not prob.) it was he, not his gr.f. in 1670;
lieut. 1673; and d. 22 Feb. 1700. Great list of descend. appears in
Butler's valua. Hist. of G.

Jan. 1680; Jonathan, b. 11 Nov. 1682; and Samuel, bapt. 12 Apr.
1685; but I kn. not his w. and suspect, that be liv. over the line of the
