    WALLER, CHRISTOPHER, Salem 1637, tray-maker, had gr. of ld.
1649, rem. to Ipswich, there d. 1676. His will of 17 Oct. pro. 30 Nov.
names w. Margaret, no ch. JOHN, Damariscove, and Monhegin, d.
1670, says our Col. Rec. V. 18, when the Gen. Ct. gave admin. of his
est. JOHN, Lyme, br. of Samuel, m. 28 Dec. 1678, Mary Durin, had
John, b. 10 Nov. 1679. JOSEPH, Boston, by w. Lydia, had Joseph, b. 3
Feb. 1670; rem. to Fairfield, prob. there d. 1672, his inv. 25 Dec. of
that yr. shows very small est. to support wid. and two ch. Joseph and
Lydia. The wid. m. John Davis, wh. rem. to Woodbury. MATTHEW,
Salem 1637, rem. to Providence, there was liv. in 1655 in the list of
freem. and had before been at New London, and liv. there 1667-74.
He had ds. Rebecca, wh. m. Thomas Bolles, as his sec. w. and d. Feb.

William of Lyme, d. 1742, very aged, says Caulkins. THOMAS, Boston
1670, a shoemaker, s. of wid. Joan W. wh. m. Francis Croakham, may
have been the same, wh. by w. Martha ahd Thomas, b. 26 July 1667;
and by w. Mary had Mehitable, 18 Feb. 1675; Sarah, 5 Nov. 1676;

Court after union with New Haven, and oft. aft. a lieut. 1671, m. Mary,
only d. of Reynold Marvin, and had John, Samuel, William, propound.
for freem. 1677, and Matthew. He was of Lyme side.

    WALLEY, CHRISTOPHER, Concord, freem. 1682, whose name by Paige

one or two ch. with same bapt. names; so that the confus. seems inextricab.
Prob. he had sec. w. Sarah, and by her Hannah, b. 23 July
1680, and by third w. Elizabeth had possib. some ch. certain, Sarah, 27 Apr.
1695. But the first w. m. 3 Apr. 1661, was Elizabeth d. of Robert Wing,

July 1667; Samuel, 1 Feb. 1671; Thomas, 26 Feb. 1673; and after
