His w. d. perhaps, 27 Nov. 1719; and he d. 28 Sept. 1723.

    STREAME, STREME or STERTE, JOHN Milford 1646, is perhaps he
wh. came in the Truelove, with his uncle Zechariah Witman; from
London, to Boston 1635, aged 14, with Thomas, prob. his br. aged 15;
m. 20 Dec. 1649, Martha Beard of the same, had Abigail; Mary, b. 12
Oct. 1653; John, Dec. 1657; Thomas, 1 Apr. 1661, d. young; Martha,
1664; and Sarah, 1667, and he was freem. of Conn. 1665, ens. 1669,
and d. 1685. Abigail m. Thomas Tibbals, of Milford; Mary m. 11
Nov. 1674, David Baldwin of the same; Martha m. Thomas Cooley;
and Sarah was in 1690 unm. I had tak. the spell. of this surname in
June or July 1842, as here it stands first, but 17 yrs. later, Mr. Drake's
copy of the same gives it Sterte, and his eyesight may have been
better than mine, or that of the keeper of her majesty's public office, wh.

Mass. Hist. Coll. VIII. 272 and Geneal. Reg. XIV. 323. But the
probabil. of the true version may be infer. from look. at the name of the
Weymouth man in Geneal. Reg. XI. 173, or under Otis in my preced.

Samuel Coley, and d. without ch. 1689, leav. good est. to his wid. and

    STREET, FRANCIS, Tauton, a purch. in 1637, prob. liv. bef. 1644 in

the list of those able to bear arms in the Col. nor does it seem, that he
was near relat. of Rev. Nicholas. Yet Emery, I. 20, thinks he was there

to Boston, Alice, age 28, may have been his w. He d. early in 1665,
or, at least his inv. was tak. 3 June of that yr. and his wid. Elizabeth (wh.
name, in old times, was convertib. with Alice), m. 10 Dec. foll. Thomas
Lincoln. He left no ch. but Mary. NICHOLAS, Taunton, ord. teacher,
on the same day that Hooke was made pastor, but what day that was, is
ask. in vain, and only prob. conject. fixes the yr. 1637. He had, no
doubt, adequate educ. but none of the inquisit. scholars of New Haven
