do I find the names. His w. d. 18 Dec. 1684, and by sec. Mary, d. of
Gov. Hinckley, wh. d. 22 Oct. 1658, was f. of Rev. Thomas, b. May
1687, H. C. 1707, the assid. annalist, whose service in perpet. evidence
relative to our early hist. exceeds that of any other man, since the first
generat. Of written or printed matter he was a useful expounder; but
the great delineator of our literary men, half a centu. ago, has well
cautioned us against his credulity. See Eliot's Biog. Dict. He was
also f. of Nathan, H. C. 1718, a man of talents super. to his bro.'s but
of less value to society. THOMAS, Glocester 1649, by w. Margaret

from her window in the prison, against Gov. Endicott, as he went by, on
Sunday, from the ch. Twice she was taken to his house, where two
min. were present; and tho. I fear she suffer. worse correction than
from their mouths, yet the virulence of their affections did not perhaps
go beyond her banishm. Eleven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at
Harv. one at Yale, and two at other N. E. coll.
