ROBERT, New London, s. of William, m. 1665, Mary, d. of Robert Hempstead,
had William, b. 1666; Mary, 1668; Ann, 1669; John, 1671; Hannah, 1673; Sarah,
1674; Elizabeth 1677; Thomas, 1679; and Phebe, 1681; his w. d. 1711; and he d.
1716. * WILLIAM, perhaps of Gloucester first, but of Boston 1640, cooper,
freem. 1646, by w. Ann had Ann; Robert, b. 1639; Elizabeth 26 Aug. 1641; Sarah, 8
Apr. 1643; and William, 1 Apr. 1645, the last three bapt. 8 Mar. 1646; rem.
to New London, was deac. and rep. 1672, and perhaps later, d. 26 July
1682, aged 71. Ann, his w. was d. of Thomas Mable of Ringstead,
Northamptonsh. Ann, his d. m. 14 Oct. 1658, Nathaniel Geary; Elizabeth m. 16

    DOUSE. See Dawse.

    DOVE, MATTHEW, Salem, had ch. bapt. there, Hannah, and Elizabeth 10 Sept.
1654; Dorcas, 5 Oct. 1656; Bethia, 30 May 1658; Daniel, 3 Nov. 1661;
Deborah, 20 May 1666; and a d. whose name is not on the rec. 1 July foll.
beside Sarah, b. 3 July 1660, d. in a few days; Matthew, 3 Dec. 1667; and Ruth,
15 Oct. 1673. But the b. of Doreas is made 11 days later than the bapt. Many such
gross errors fall under our notice in rec. of Boston and other towns as well as Salem;
and when the ch. or the town rec. is to be prefer. must commonly be decid in favor
of the ch. for obvious reason. Yet at New Haven the opposite conclus. is the right
one, for the town rec. is unusual. correct, and that of the ch. very inexact. Two
fifths of those in the Geneal. Reg. IX. 357-63, are wrong. This name of Dove,
in the Hist. Coll. of Essex Inst. II. 43, is made Dour, thro. misread. of the old
chirography for the last letter, as I presume; but Mr. Patch very rarely fails.
Hannah m. 20 Mar. 1671, Richard Harris.
