perhaps br. of Edward, came with w. and one ch. Elizabeth in the Mayflower,
, and all (it was believ. by Shurtleff in Geneal. Reg. I. 52) d. next
winter. But his d. Elizabeth wh. m. John Howland outliv. all her fellow
passeng. exc. three wh. were younger. JOHN, Dorchester 1630, is prob.
the same, wh. was in 1624, engag. at Cape Ann, with Thomas Gardner,
in the oversight of that planta. freem. 4 Mar. 1635, and perhaps the
master of the coast. vessel k. by the Ind. at Conn. riv. next yr. in Oct.
with circumst. of horrid cruelty, as in Winthrop I. 200 is told. His wid.
cont. at D. NATHANIEL, emb. in the Abigail 1635, from London, aged
32, but I kn. no more of him. THOMAS, Plymouth 1643. WILLIAM,
Boston, is perhaps the passeng. in the Abigail from London 1635, aged
28, with Nathaniel, and may have been his br. perhaps was the Barnstable
man 1643. In 1649, he had w. Alice, and was inhab. 1658; but
in 1665 was subject of complaint by w. Of Elizabeth T. wh. in 1653 at
Springfield, m. Thomas Merrick, tho. from that union, the Tilley has
grown into a common baptism. prefix, it is, I fear, impossib. to find any
trace of parentage.

    TILLINGHAST, BENJAMIN, Providence, s. prob. youngest of the first
, had three ds. of whose dates I hear nothing, nor names; but it
is said that they m. Solomon Drown, Edward Kinnicutt, and Christopher
, respective. JOHN, Providence, of whose descent I am ign.
had perhaps other ch. beside Mary, b. a. 1689, wh. m. 2 Nov. 1709,
Richard Ward. JOSEPH, Providence, br. of Benjamin, by first w. had
Paris; and by sec. w. Lydia, had Elizabeth; Samuel; Nicholas, b. 26 May
1726; and Daniel; to ea. of wh. I would gladly give dates. PARDON,
Providence, b. a. 1622, it is said, near Beach Head on the coast of
Sussex, was sett. as Bapt. min. 1645. See Benedict, Hist. I. 478. He
built at his own exp. the first meeting-ho. and gave it to the soc. in 1711,
with the lot it stood on; and d. 29 Jan. 1718. By his sec. w. Lydia,
prob. d. of Philip Tabor of Tiverton, he had Pardon; Philip; Joseph, b.
1677; Benjamin; Mary; Abigail; Mercy, b. a. 1679; Hannah; and
Elizabeth He d. 29 Jan. 1718; but he had three ch. by a former w. whose
names are unkn. Mary m. one of the numerous Carpenters at Pautuxet,
prob. a. s. of William; Abigail m. Nicholas Sheldon; Mercy m. the third
Nicholas Power, as his sec. w. had nine ch. and d. 13 Nov. 1769, aged
91; Hannah m. a Hale of Swanzey; and Elizabeth m. a Tabor of New
London. He is, I believe, founder of a long line, eight of wh. had, says
Farmer, been gr. at Brown Univ. in 1834. PARDON, Providence, s. of
the preced. rem. to East Greenwich, and had John, Joseph, and Philip,
beside one d. Mercy, w. of Peter Mawney, as from his will is learn.
This docum. names a great many PHILIP, Providence, br. of the
