Pynchon, had David, b. 8 June 1642; Mary, 6 Apr. 1644; Jonathan,
25 Feb. 1646; Sarah, 23 Aug 1648; Joseph, 6 July 1652; and perhaps
more. He d. 29 Nov. 1682, and his w. Mary, d. 19 Sept. foll. Mary,
his d. m. 18 Oct. 1664, the sec. John Root of Farmington, after of Westfield.
THOMAS, Maine 1634, may have rem. to Boston 1658, where
w. Joanna d. 27 Dec. 1661, and he m. the last of next mo. wid. Hannah
Broome. THOMAS, Boston, by w. Mary had Mary; b. 1 Sept. 1681;

constable there 4 July 1659. Eight of this name had in 1767
been gr. at Yale, and since that date one at Harv. and one at Dart.

    ASHTON, HENRY, Boston 1673, from Co. Lancaster, Eng. was, I suppose,
of Providence 1676, one of the men entitled, for staying out the
war, to rec. an Ind. for a slave. JAMES, Providence 1639, freem. 1655,
sw. alleg. to Charles II. May 1666, and perhaps rem. to New Jersey.
JOHN, Scarborough, m. for his sec. w. Susanna, d. of Richard Foxwell
of the same, but the date is uncert. yet prob. betw. 1670 and 80,
and in the great Ind. war 1675-6, was of Marblehead. Southgate,
p. 82 makes him have for first w. a. d. of Andrew Alger, but after rem.
says, he m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Edgcomb, wid. of George Page. Yet
the same w. is ascrib. to John Austin, and all that we can be sure of, is
that nothing is sure a. the matter. THOMAS, Providence 1639, perhaps
br. of James. Both are call. proprs. and that no more can be told of
either, is rather remarka.
