    SCRANTON, DENNIS, New Haven 1660, m. Sarah, wid of
Nicholas Munger, gave informat. perhaps rather minute, than
trustworthy, about Whalley and Goffe, to Gov. Endicott's pursuivants
in 1661. See Hutch. Coll. 335 for the curious codum. But they mistook
the name, and should have writ. Crampton. JOHN, Guilford 1650,
whose w. Joanna d. 1651, is among freem. of 1669. For sec. w.
he took Adeline, wid. in 1663 of Robert Hill, as in 1661 she had
been of Robert Johnson; but prob. had no ch. by her, and d. 27
Aug. 1671, leav. ch. Thomas, John, and Sarah; and his wid. d. 1685.
Sarah m. 15 May 1665, John Bushnell. JOHN, Guilford, s. of the
preced. m. Mary Seward, d. prob. of William of the same, had Mary,
John, and Mehitable, was propound. for freem. 1670; and by sec. w.
Elizabeth Clark, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Mercy, b. 1688; Elizabeth 4 Nov.
1692; Ann, 23 Dec. 1693; Ebenezer, 16 Mar. 1696; and Deborah, 3
Dec. 1697. John d. young; but other seven ch. were liv. 1703, at d. of
the f. NATHANIEL, Guilford, may have been s. of Thomas of the same,
and d. at Wethersfield, 13 Mar. 1693, in his will giv. prop. to William
Goodrich, as Hinman, 232, tells; yet it is more prob. that there was no
such Nataniel S. and that the testator's name was Crampton. THOMAS,
Guilford, s. of the first John, was propos. for freem. 1676, and next
yr. accept.; had two ws. first, Deborah Thompson, wid. of Ebenezer,
and sec. Elizabeth Goodrich; but had only two ch. that grew up to mature
life, Samuel, and Hannah.

    SCRIBNER or SCRIVENER, BENJAMIN, Norwalk, m. 5 Mar. 1680,
Hannah, d. of John Crampton, had Thomas, b. 31 Mar. 1681; and
John; perhaps others. JOHN, Exeter 1689. JOHN, Norwalk, s. of
Benjamin, m. 9 Mar. 1710, Deborah, d. of William Lees of the same,
had Mary, b. Mar. 1711; and Rebecca, 12 Oct. 1712.

    SCRIPTURE, SAMUEL, Groton, by w. Elizabeth had Samuel, b. 4 Oc.
1675; Mary, 7 Feb. 1681; Abigail, 28 Jan. 1687; Ruth, 2 Feb. 1697;
and Lydia, 28 June 1700. SAMUEL, Groton, s. of the preced. by w.
Mary had Sarah, b. 16 Dec. 1700; Jemima, 19 Apr. 1702, wh. d. at 21
yrs.; Samuel, 25 Apr. 1705, d. at 18 yrs.; and James, wh. d. 28 Sept.
1723. His w d. 3 days bef. and by sec. w. Elizabeth he had Samuel, again;
27 Apr. 1727.

2 Oct. 1675, says Quint, in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 65, tho. in the same l.
he makes his will of 24 Nov. 1674, pro. 27 June foll. that date of its
mak. not of his d. Some error, wh. is seldom found in so careful a
writer must here demand correct. It ment. w. Mary, and ch. John, Edward,
Thomas, and Elizabeth all minors. The d. perhaps m. 1686, Samuel
Eastman. WILLIAM, Kittery, had w. Bridget in 1680, was rep. 1681,
