foll. ROBERT, Stonington 1670. SAMUEL, Rehoboth, had Samuel, wh. was bur. 13
Sept. 1674; Samuel, again, b. 6 Sept. 1675, may have rem. to Duxbury, or
perhaps the Duxbury man may have been his s. wh. had there Consider, b. 1702,
and he of Marshfield, d. 1690. THOMAS, Hingham, perhaps, at least one of that
name, came, 1637, as serv. to William Ludkin, wh. was of the city of Norwich,
and sa down here in H. THOMAS, New London, b. at London, came in 1665, by w.
Lucretia or Lucia, d. of Thomas Dudley of New York, had John, b. 11 Mar. 1686.
By Geneal. Reg. X. 242, is giv. a very curious story by this s. tak. on the
bed, where the f. was dying at gr. age, tho. no doubt below 98 yrs. when he d.
12 Dec. 1724, his w. hav. d. a. 1688. WILLIAM, Plymouth 1632, was sent next
yr. with armed force to reestablish tradinghouse above Hartford against the
Dutch; serv. in the Pequot war, was a lieut. in Scituate; went home, and got
employ. in the civil war, or great rebellion, as the other side call. it, came
back, and d. at Boston 12 Nov. 1649; prob. without w. or ch.; was call. major,
and in his will gives est. in Antigua, and his farm at Scituate, to ds. of his
br. Thomas at London, "if they come to N.E." They were to poor to come, as
despons. in June 1654 show; yet possib. that Thomas Home, wh. arr. at Boston
from London in the Speedwell, July 1656, aged 11, may have been a relat. The
major's will ment. "arrears due to him for being a soldier and commander in
the army and service of the king and parliam." as if this town of Boston were
as good a place to expect such arrears as London. Winthrop I. 92, 113. Usually
Oliver took better care of his old soldiers, especially if they had the merit
of being hard heads as well as roundheads. WILLIAM, Scituate 1646, or
earlier, freem. of the col. 1658, had Abraham, b. 1641; Israel, 1642; Isaac,
1644; Sarah, 1646; rebecca, 1648; Josiah, 1650; Mary 1655; and Elizabeth, 1661;
and perhaps John, first b. in Eng.; rem. that yr. to Marshfield, and d. 9 Nov.
1678, by rep. of gr.stone, or by ano. 1690, aged 86; his wid. Elizabeth d. at the
same age, 1693 or 1697, Miss Thomas says. I found it useless to distinguish
the persons without l in the name. Five of this spell. had, in 1834, been gr.
at H. C. and fifteen at the other N. E. coll.
