until 20 Jan. 1700, and to Cothren's Hist. of the town, we owe most of
the particulars. He left wid. Susanna by wh. he had Elizabeth b. 1 Mar.
1675; but other ch. Zechariah, beside Abigail, wh. d. young, both bapt.
22 May 1670. An agreem. in Mar. 1700 betw. the wid. and Zechariah
and Elizabeth W. for the partition of the est. renders this certain. One
Sarah W. aged 17, came in the Elizabeth, 1635, from London, m. not
many yrs. aft. John Tisdae, not Brown, as plausib. is said in Geneal.
Reg. IX. 219. Roxbury town rec. tells, that Dorcas W. was bur. 14
Apr. 1640, but it is beyond my means to conject. wh. she was, unless
mo. of that John, the only man of the name found in that town bef.
and she were too wise to partake his heresy, or too old to rem. with her
s. Farmer marks, that, in 1834, of this name, fourteen had been gr. at
Harv. seven at Yale, and fourteen at the other N. E. coll.

    WALKLEY, HENRY, Hartford, one of the first sett. but not orig. propr.

    WALKUP, GEORGE, Rending, m. 4 Nov. 1688, Naomi Stephenson of
the same, says Barry, wh. ment. tradit. that he was a Scotchman, had
Thomas, b. 16 Mar. 1689; George, 6 Jan. 1691; Naomi, 28 Mar.
1692, d. young; Rachel, 29 Jan. 1704; Noami, again, Apr. 1709; and
Thankful; and d. 1748.

    WALL, JAMES, Portsmouth 1631, carpenter, sent over by Mason the
patentee, was a witness to the true deed to Wheelwright, Farmer says,
from the Ind. in Apr. 1838, rem. to Hampton 1643, when his d. Elizabeth
m. Thomas Harvey, at Exeter 1646, as our Col. Rec. II. shows, tax. at
Dover 1649, but in Oct. of that yr. is call. of Exeter, carpenter, when
he rec. from Waldron, his right to erect a sawmill with sixty acres, stock
of cattle,
he d. soon. His d. Sarah m. 1663, Thomas Dow. One Joan W. emb.
at London, June 1635, aged 19, in the Abigail. A JOHN, said to have
come in 1630, was of Exeter 1639, and Portsmouth 1640.

    WALLACE, is not found in Farmer, nor, I believe, in N. E. bef. 18th
cent. By the Index in sev. vols. of the Geneal. Reg. it was introd. when
Wallis was not seen there, tho. in the passages referred to, if relat. to
men of hte first, sec. or third generat. this name appears to be the
true one.

    WALLEN, WALLING or WALINE, JAMES, and JOHN, Providence,
perhaps,. brs. and may be s. of Thomas of the same, gave engagem. of
alleg. to the k. May 1682. RALPH, Plymouth, came in the Ann, 1623,
prob. with w. Joyce, wh. surv. him. RICHARD, Providence, engag.
alleg. to Charles II. June 1667, may have had perhaps John, James,
and Thomas, or may have been br. of the last. THOAMS, whose name
is once giv. Walwin, Providence 1645, and there on the freemen's list
