s. of Joshua of the same, m. Mercy, youngest d. of Roger Williams,
wid. of Resolved Waterman, had Samuel, Joshua, and Hannah,
but no dates are giv. exc. by infer. for Samuel, wh. preach. says the
tradit. from 1733 to his d. in Nov. 1758, "aged 81 yrs. lacking one
day," so that it may be guess. that he was b. 1677. The f. d. I suppose,
in early life, for his wid. m. John Rhoades, and brot. him childr.
THOMAS, Boston, s. of Robert of the same, by w. Rachel had Joshua,
and Caleb, b. 29 Dec. 1692; Rebecca, 19 Mar. 1698; Robert, 16 Apr.
1699; and Mary, 24 Mar. 1701. WALTER, found by the mod. historian
of Duxbury, a subject of animadv. by the Ct. 1671, for sell. liquor to
Ind. but he can name no town in that Col. for resid. WILLIAM, is a
traditional or mythical ancest. of the Duxbury fam. said to have come
from Devonsh. to Boston, but too mod. for my pages.

    WINSTON or WENSTONE, JOHN, New Haven, had Elizabeth b. 11 Dec.
1649, bapt. aft. a yr. old, prob. 15 Dec.; Esther, 25 Jan. bapt. 15 Feb.
1652, prob. d young; Grace, 21 Apr. perhaps bapt. 30 of the same,
certain. not as the wretched rec. says, 30 May of the same yr.; John,
21 Apr. 1657, as the careful town rec. has it, but whether the rec. of
bapt. means anything in calling the name Christian, and giving a false
date, bec. an impossib. one, for bapt. is to be left in uncertainty; Esther,
again, 11 Nov. 1662, and bapt. bef. 25 Mar. foll. is all that John Davenport's
rec. supplies, but by scrupulous Mr. Herrick, libr. of Y. C. I am
furnish. with one more ch. Mary, 24 June 1667. He was serg. and
held in good esteem by fellow cit. d. prob. 1697. His will of 2 Mar. in

    WINSWORTH, ROBERT, Boston, by w. Rebecca had John, b. 10 Feb.
1646; but nothing more is kn. of him.

    WINTER, CHRISTOPHER, Scituate, m. Jane Cooper, perhaps d. of
John of the same, with some irreg. in publish. the banns, for wh. he was
fin. 10s. and aft. was excommunic. but with protest against such treatm.
by Vassal and Hatherly, so that we may feel assured there could be no
moral obliquity; had Martha, wh. m. 1668, John Hewett, and Mary,
wh. m. the same yr. John Reed; but Deane tells not of his hist. further,
than that he aft. liv. in that part of Plymouth wh. bec. Kingston, d.
