Jan. 1676; and Edmund, 24 Sept. 1684. RICHARD, Newbury, br. of
John of the same, came with his f. 1639, bring. w. but no ch. that is kn.
had Percival, bef. ment. b. 1639; and Rebecca, 27 Jan. 1642. His w.
d. that yr. and by sec. w. Margaret he had Samuel, 1644; and Thomas,
28 Sept. 1649; and d. 5 Aug. 1682, aged 80, says Coffin. Fifteen
descend. of the first Percival have been gr. at Harv. and it is noted,
that four have, at diff. times, been of the corpo. of the Univ.

    LOWGIE or LOUGEE, JOHN, came at the age of 16, in the Confidence
of London, from Southampton 1638, with Grace, perhaps his sis. as
serv. of John Stephens of Caversham, Oxfordsh. This name is preserv.
in N. H. but the tradit. of the fam. derives it from a John, wh. came
from the Isle of Jersey, seventy yrs. later.

    LUCAR, MARK, Newport, among freem. 1655.

    LUCAS, THOMAS, Plymouth, had John, b. 15 July 1656; Mary, 1
Mar. 1658; Benoni, 30 Oct. 1659; Samuel, 15 Sept. 1661; and Wil
liam, 13 Jan. 1663; and was k. by the Ind. in Philip's war. WILLIAM,
Middletown, m. 12 July 1666, Esther Clark, perhaps d. of John of New
Haven, wh. d. 16 Apr. and he d. 29 Apr. 1690, leav. William, b. 26
Apr. 1667; John, 14 Oct. 1669; Mary, 5 Dec. 1672; Thomas, 1676;
and Samuel, 15 Apr. 1682. A Mr. L. with prefix of respect was of
New Haven 1643, with fam. of six, of wh. no more is heard. He prob.
was one of the London associates who soon went home. A Lucas fam.
of good est. in N. E. is of French descent, but came not early across
the ocean, the first emigr. Augustus writ. of hims. "I m. 6 Jan. 1696, at
St. Malo, in Bretagne."

    LUCE or LUCY, EXPERIENCE, perhaps of Edgartown, s. of Henry,
m. Elizabeth d. of John Manter, had Zephaniah, b. 19 Feb. 1695; perhaps others,
and d. 9 Jan. 1747. HENRY, Rehoboth 1668. Prob. he rem. to the Vineyard,
and by w. Remember had Experience, b. 7 Feb. 1673, perhaps others. THOMAS,
Charlestown, had Samuel, b. 1644, says Farmer, to wh. I can add nothing, but
that he prob. rem. soon. The name abounds at the Vineyard. One LUCY, at Portsmouth,
m. Mary, d. of William Brooking, and had Benjamin.

    LUCKIS or LUCKIN, WILLIAM, Marblehead 1648. Dana, Hist. Disc. 7.

    LUDDEN, BENJAMIN, Weymouth, perhaps s. of James, by w. Eunice,
d. I think, of John Holbrook, had d. Abia, b. 22 Dec. 1679; a s. whose
name; is not kn. 13 Mar. 1681; and James, 9 Nov. 1689. JAMES,
Weymouth, had Mary, b. 17 Dec. 1636; Sarah, 15 Nov. 1639, d. soon;
Sarah, again, 5 June 1642; and John, so late as 13 Jan. 1657, by w.
wh. may have been mo. of the others. Perhaps this man was
the guide, in Oct. 1632, in honor of wh. Gov. Winthrop then travelling on
foot from Plymouth to W. named a fording place in the North river.
But the rec. in Geneal. Reg. IX. 171, calls him Laddon. In the note
on p. 146 of the Hist. of Boston, attention is drawn to this name.
Diligent as the writer is, his meaning may be misunderstood, when, aft.
printing the name Ludham, at the foot, tho. in the text above, and in his
