    WEDGEWOOD, JOHN, Hampton 1639, had, in 1637, when he belong
to Ipswich, serv. in the Pequot war, and was wound. but in Oct. of the
later yr. was sentenc. to be set in the stocks for being in the comp. of
drunk. See Col. Rec. I. 269. No doubt his conversat. improv. for his
will of 24 Nov. 1654, pro. 10 Apr. foll. names w. Mary, and five ch.
John, the eldest, Jonathan, David, Mary, and Abigail. JONATHAN,
Hampton, s. of the preced. took the o. of alleg. 26 May 1669, and once
more, 16 Dec. 1678.

    WEEBON, STEPHEN, wh. d. at Boston, Sept. 1659, inv. of whose
goods and clothing, 16 Nov. foll. is in Geneal. Reg. IX. 348, from Prob.
Rec. III. 171, was, I judge, only casual visitor, perhaps from the West
Ind. and the expense of his board was to be reimburs. by his host being
made admin. He may have come only from New York, under the
Dutch, and had very small stock.

    WEED, DANIEL, Stamford, s. of Jonas, had been of Rye 20 yrs. bef.
he d. 29 Nov. 1697, leav. four s. and a d. whose names are not found.
GEORGE, Salisbury, s. of John of the same, took o. of alleg. 20 Dec.
1677, at the same time with his f. and brs. Samuel and John. JOHN,
Salisbury, m. 14 Nov. 1650, Deborah, d. of Samuel Wensley, or Winsly,
had Samuel, b. 15 Feb. 1652; Mary, 5 Sept. 1653; John, 1 Nov.
1655; Ann, 26 July 1657; Deborah, 15 June 1659; George, 25 May
1661; and Ephraim, 24 Feb. 1667. He was, it is said, b. a. 1627, and
his d. Deborah m. 29 Nov. 1677, Christopher Barnard the sec. of Newbury.
JOHN, Stamford, s. of Jonas of the same, m. Joanna Westcoat,
d. of Richard, had Jonas, b. 1665; Daniel, 1667; John; Samuel'
Joseph; Isaac; Mary; and Hannah, all nam. when the inv. was brot. in
15 Jan. 1690. JONAS, the freem. of 18 May 1631, of wh. nothing more
is told, exc. by Bond wh. discov. from Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 2, that he
had been dism. from the ch. of Watertown to that of Wethersfield, but
the date in Bond, p. 963, 29 May 1635, is by me confidently read 29
Mar. 1636. Of course he came in the fleet of 1630, and by Bond's
reasonab. conject. in the ship with Sir Richard Saltonstall. I find a
Jonas, perhaps his s. at Stamford 1669, then seek. to be made freem. of
Conn. but he is accomp. in the same good purpose by John wh. may be
gr.s. of the first Jonas. Mr. Judd enlarges our acquaint. with him by
tell. that he was of Stamford 1642, until he d. 1676, his inv. being of 5
June in that yr. He made his will Nov. 1672, nam. four s. John, Daniel,
Jonas, and Samuel, four ds. May, w. of George Abbot; Dorcas
Wright, w. of James; Hannah, m. 5 Jan. 1670, Benjamin Hoyt; and
Sarah. His wid. Mary, d. early in 1690, at least her inv. was brot. in
10 Mar. of that yr. JONAS, Stamford, s. of the preced. m. 16 Nov.
1670, Bethia, d. of John Holley, had perhaps ch. not certain. kn.
