    SPOWELL, THOMAS, nam. in the will, Sept. 1656, of Thomas Buckminster,
of Muddy riv. as the h. of his d. Elizabeth hav. two ch. I conject. to
have liv. in Boston. WILLIAM. See Spaule.

    SPRAGUE, ANTHONY, Hingham, eldest s. of William of the same, m.
26 Dec. 1661, Elizabeth d. of Robert Bartlett of Plymouth, had Anthony,
Benjamin, John, Elizabeth Samuel, Sarah, James, Josiah, Jeremiah, Richard,
and Matthew, as in the Sprague Geneal. rank.; but some d. young, and
his w. d. Feb. 1713. In his will of 21 July 1716, pro. 12 Oct. 1719, in
our rec. XXI. 245 are nam. Anthony with Anthony his s. and other s.
Richard, James, Samuel, Matthew, Josiah, and Jeremiah, beside d. Sarah
Bates, w. of Caleb. He d. 3 Sept. 1719. His house was burn. 20 Apr.
1676 by the Ind. in Philip's war. Of this branch, of Anthony, thro.
Jeremiah, the seventh s. is the celebr. poet, Charles, descend. EDWARD,
Malden, youngest s. of the first John m. 24 Nov. 1693, Dorothy, d. of
Job Lane of the same, had William, b. 4 Sept. 1696; Ann, 20 Mar.
1697; Dorothy, 9 Sept. 1698; and d. 13 Apr. 1715. FRANCIS, Plymouth,
came with w. and a d. in the Ann 1623, but the names, Ann, and
Mercy, are all that are giv. in 1627, at the div. of cattle, so that it is
infer. that he left other ch. abroad, perhaps had John, or more b. here;
and at P. was tax. 1633 and 4, but aft. was of Dusbury. He was liv.
in 1666, as Winsor says, and he names the ch. John, Ann, Mary, and
Mercy. This last, he tells, m. 9 Nov. 1637, William Tubbs; and one
of the others m. Robert Lawrence; but I kn. no such man, and casually
turn. (three yrs. aft. writ. this maledict) from p. 317 to 275, of Winsor,
obs. that he calls him William. He was one of the orig. purch. of Dartmouth.

2 May 1651, Lydia, d. of Edward Goffe of Cambridge, brot. from Eng.

Deborah, 21 Sept. 1670; Sarah, Feb. 1673; and d. 16 Dec.
1703. The wid. d. 11 Dec. 1715. A will of his br. Richard, wh.
outliv. him, in 1703, gives to five s. of this John, wh. was rep. 1689, 90,
and 1. JOHN, Duxbury, only s. of Francis, liv. first at Marshfield, but
d. in D.; m. 1655, Ruth, d. of William Bassett, had John; William;
Samuel; Ruth, b. 12 Feb. 1659; Elizabeth; Desire; and Dorcas; was k.
in Philip's war, 26 Mar. 1676, under Pierce, at the fierce fight of Pawtucket.
JOHN, Plymouth and Duxbury, in Hutch. I. 354 call. one of
the counc. to Sir Edmund Andros, was perhaps s. of William, and if this
be true, he m. 13 Dec. 1666, Elizabeth Holbrook, and Hosea S. in his
Geneal, tells no more, but that he sold in 1682 his est. at Hingham, and d.
