Prob. rec. HENRY, New Haven 1647, or earlier, came, prob. in the Elizabeth

1698, aged 85. In letters of Davenport to Winthrop 1655, 3 Mass. Hist. Coll.
X. 9 and 12, his w. is refer. to; and perhaps he was the lieut. of Southold 1662,
that yr. adm. as freem. of Conn. Trumbull, Col. Rec. 388. His d. Hannah m.
24 Nov. 1663, David Ashley; Mercy m. 10 May 1664 Moses Mansfield;

‡ * JOHN, Dorchester 1630, came, perhaps, in the Mary and John, but was a
Lancashire man, and engag. in the favor of the Plant. bef. embark. in
1629, was a capt. rep. 1637-50, and near all the same yrs. selectman, rem.
to Boston, was assist. 1652 and 3, d. early next yr. His will of 11 Apr.
1653, has codic. of 26 Jan. foll. and pro. 9 Feb. after, recites that he had
giv. a yr. bef. to s. Thomas his messuage at Rainhill in Lancaster, Eng. "as
competent jointure to Rebecca now his w. with wh. he is to have a

new dwell.-ho. and pits and accom. for tan. equal to £400, prov. for w.
Ann, s. John, and Pelatiah, b. Sept. 1636; all of wh. exc. the last two, I
think he had brot. from Eng. He had no d. JOHN, Cambridge, s. of Rev.
, b. in Eng. H. C. 1650, in 1651 was liv. in Eng. had a degr. of M. D. at
Aberdeen, and prob. never came again to our side of the ocean. JOHN,
Boston, s. of first John, H. C. 1651, (unless this distinct. belong to a New
Haven gent.), a merch. wh. had perhaps, liv. at Swanzey 1683, but at B. d.
and was bur. 25 Sept. 1696; in his will names w. Eliz. prob. d. of John
Andrews, but no other relat. styles hims. gent. wh. may seem to support his
right to the coll. honor. Yet the careful Hist. of Dorchester does not
claim him. JOHN, Boston, by w. Mary had Hannah, b. 5 Apr. 1659
and John, b. 1 Feb. 1661, may be the same as preced. JOHN, New
Haven, perhaps s. of Henry, yet strange. regard. by Prof. Kingsley
in let. to me, as the gr. of Harv. 1651, d. 29 Jan. 1680,
