CHAD, Providence, came first to Boston, in July 1638, in the Martin, as before dep.-gov. Dudley, he swore, in support of a nuncup. will of a fellow passenger dying, on the ocean; was settled at the Baptist church 1642 after Roger Williams. It has been thought by some, that he was earlier on our side of the water, and that imperfect record proves it, on p. 14 of the Vol. 1. of Col. Rec. of R. I. as to his incorporation in town fellowship with others at Providence, which bears date 20 Aug. without a year. Now the supplying of the numerals for the year admit those which the transcriber used, 1637, by no means; for that day was Sunday, when no civil compact could have been enter. into, and before that day in the former year the place was known as Moshasuck, probably the second use of the designation of the modern city being, in the following month at the baptism of the son of Roger Williams, Providence, late in Sept. 1638. Earlier than Aug. 1638 his name, I suppose; will not be found. He brought wife Elizabeth and son John, aged after 8 years and probably other children for we know not the birth dates of any of his five son The other four were James, Jeremiah, Judah, alias Chad, and Daniel. No connection is transacted between Chad and Henry, of the probable sons James was min. of the same church. This is the progenitor of the family so much distinguished as the patrons of Brown Univ. at Providence.

JAMES, Charlestown, by wife Judith had John, b. 4 Jan. 1638; James, 20 Feb. 1643, who d. young, James, again, 19 Aug. 1647; and Nathaniel, 21 Nov. 1648, ar. co. 1639, may be the dangerous man, disarmed as a supporter of Wheelwright 1637. Frothingham, 82.
JAMES, Newbury, son of Joseph, a youth of 17, came in the James 1635, from Southampton, arrived at Boston 3 June 1635. But the difficulty of discriminating between the many of this name, even by aid of ws. and church is insurmount. He, by wife Sarah, daughter of capt. John Cutting, had Samuel, b. 14 Jan. 1657; Hannah, bapt. 12 Sept. 1658; and Abraham, 14 Oct. 1660; had, also, Mary, b. 25 May 1663; Abigail, 24 Oct. 1665; and Martha, 22 Dec. 1667.

John, James, Samuel, Abraham, Sarah, who was married ; Ann, or Hannah, Mary, Abigail, and Martha.
JAMES, Taunton 1643, son of John, the Assist. b. in Eng. we may be sure, went with his father to Swansey, chosen 1665 an Assist. may well be presumed the preacher, put by Mather, in his third class at Swansey unless more than usual confidence is felt in his authority, which it is believed inquiry will not justify, for no duration in office is mentioned nor is any reason known for giving him place in that rather than the second class. He married Lydia, daughter of John Howland, and. d. 29 Oct. 1710, aged 87, leaving James, who d. 1725, at Barrington; Jabez; and daughter Dorothy Kent. Baylies, IV. 18.
JAMES, Salem, son of Elder John, married 5 Sept. 1664, Hannah, daughter of Henry Bartholomew, had James, b. 3 Feb. 1666, d. young; Bartholomew, 31 Mar. 1669; Elizabeth 26 Jan. 1671; Hannah, 9 Mar. 1673; and James, again, 23 May 1675.

He removed after, to Colchester; and his daughter Abigail, probably was that captive on the fatal day of 29 Feb. 1704, carried to Canada, but retured safe.
JAMES, Branford 1679 a landholder, may have removed and been of Norwalk; 1687, had Isaac, b. 1 Mar. 1690; and either before or after James, who probably is the man that married 1714, Joanna Whitehead.
JAMES, Rehoboth, son of James of the same, by wife Margaret had Margaret, b. 28 June 1682; d. 15 Apr. 1718, in his 60th year His widow d. 5 May 1741, aged 84. JOB, Boston 1672, supposed to be d. when investiture was tabulated by William Brown, 2 Jan. 1675, was, perhaps, son of Hugh.
JOHN, Pemaquid 1625.
JOHN, Salem 1629, a lawyer from London, one of the purchers of the patent from Sir Henry Roswell, engaged (being one of the Assist. of the Mass. Co. and swore a year and a half before Endicot took the requisite oath) in Mar. of that year to embark with Samuel his brother in the fleet with Higgins; came in May, reach. Salem in June, and soon after, they wished to following the Episcopal form of service, caused such a schism, that Endicot sent them home in the returning ship and in Sept. or Oct. they were again at London, and came not to our country any more. See the candid views of Eliot, Eccl. Hist. of Mass. in 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. IX. 3 and 4.
JOHN, whose d. 25 Feb. 1687, is mentioned in early records of New Hampshire "aged 98 years" may possibly have gained such a reputation by his father having done some brave act against the Spanish enemy even later than the Armada.
JOHN, Watertown 1632, arr. 16 Sept. at Boston, from London, in the Lion; freeman 3 Sept. 1634, by wife Dorothy had Hannah, b. 10 Sept. 1634; and Mary, 24 Mar. 1637; and he was buried 20 June of that year aged 36. By probably genealogy he was son of John of Haweekedon, Co. Suffolk. in that church baptisted 11 Oct. 1601, and so nephew of Abraham and Richard.
JOHN, Plymouth, had acquaintance with the Pilgrave at Leyden before 1620, but his year of coming is unknown, living in 1636 at Duxbury; in 1643 at Taunton; Assist. for 17 years from 1636, and served as Commissnr. of the Unit. Col. from 1644 for 12 years had James, above mentioned; and Mary, who married 6 July 1636, Thomas Willet; perhaps more, certainly John, and d. at Swansey, near Rehoboth, where he had large estate 10 Apr. 1662. His will, made three days before provides for the five children that his son John left to his care, and names son James, and wife Dorothy excors. also names daughter Mary Willet, and grand-daughter Martha, wife of John Saffin, d. of Willet. His widow Dorothy d. at Swansey, 27 Jan. 1674, aged 90. See Davis, in Morton's Mem. 295-7.
JOHN, Salem 1637, freeman 2 May 1638, ruled elder of the church, had John, bapt. Sept. 1638; and James, June 1640; d. 1685.
JOHN, Hampton 1639, d. 28 Feb. 1687, a 98 years as is said. Much more probably is the age set against his name, 40, on his embarkation 17 apr. 1635, at the London custom house especially if he be that baker, whose fellow-passengers were two servants James Walker, aged 15, and Sarah Walker, 17, the latter of who in 1640, became his wife as descendants suppose. By what I think the wrong statement, he was b. 1589, and this maiden was b. 1618. Beside the number and dates of his children disprove or make highly improbably the great age : Sarah; John, b. 1644; Elizabeth; Benjamin; Jacob, 1653; Mary, 13 Sept. 1655; Thomas, 14 July 1657; and Stephen, 1659, who was killed by the Indians at Scarborough 29 June 1677.
JOHN, Maine 1641, son of Richard of Barton Regis. Co. Glouster, married Margaret, d. of Francis Hayward of the City of Bristol, as he told Robert Allen of Sheepscot, for Robert Allen so swore on 21 Feb. 1659 at Bristol, Eng. (as there rec.) that he knew for 17 years John Brown of Newharbor, a mason, and that he was in good health in New England the June preceding.
JOHN, Rehoboth, or Swansey, son of John the eldest, Joseph, Nathaniel, Lydia,, and Hannah, all of wh. in his will of 31 Mar. 1662, of wh. he made John, his father the excor. he gave to his care,, and d. soon. Hannah married 7 Jan. 1676, her cousin Hezekiah Willet.
JOHN, Ipswich 1641, may have come in the Elizabeth, 1635, aged 40, from London, or have been the tailor from Badstow, in Essex, near Chelmsford, in the Defense, from London, 1635, aged 27. But whichever ship he came in, he had wife Sarah, and by the children Sarah; John; Benjamin; and Elizabeth; probably born there; and at Hampton had Jacob, b. 1653; Mary, 13 Sept. 1655; Thomas, 14 July 1657; and Stephen, 1659, killed by the Indians 29 June 1677 at Scarborough.

Aug. 1659 and Mar. 1661, the dates of mak. and probably of his will. That instr. of wh. widow Elizabeth was extrix. named son Thomas, and grandsons Richard, and George; but the est. was not adequate, it is thot. to tempt either over the ocean. Winth. I. 58.

This last living over one hundred years of who very many he served as properties clerk. Judge Staples remembers him, as seat. in his doorway within two years of the latest. Gathering, at his ho. on the hundredth birthday, rumor went, that his friends made him dance; but, at least, what was then done "shortened his days" I hope not much.
ROBERT, Cambridge, came in the Truelove, 1635, aged 24, married 8 May 1619, Barbara Eden, freeman 1649, d. 23 Nov. 1690, aged only 70, acc. inscript. on gravestone, as giv. in Cambridge Epit. by wh. his widow wh. d. 1 June 1693, is said to be aged 80. We may therefore doubt, that here must be error in that very correct work, as we kn. there is, when it marks him freeman 1639. This custom ho. date is inconsist. with the gravestone; and no Robert B. is among freeman for many years before or after. Mitchell's Reg. in Cambrother ch. Gathering, gives him no ch.

Sarah, wife of Joseph Doolittle, Rachel, and Francis; the widow still liv. in 1695.

Malford is a parish in the hundred of North Damenham, about 6 miles from Malmsbury, and 5 from Chippenham, in Co. Wilts, on the map of that shire in Camden's Britannia, called Christian Malford, perhaps too long, a name for modern maps. In this geographical detail I am more full, because (though printed by me, in 1843, 3 Hist. Coll. VIII. 319), a descendant sent lately to Eng. to explore the seat of his ancestors, and his agents answers was "finds no such place in Eng. as Malford." In despair, the inquir. accept. Walford, in Wales for the derivat. of his ancestor as if, in those early days, from that distant principality, a weaver would travel with his wife so far as Southampton to embark, when Bristol and other ports would have been so much nearer. Mary married 13 May 1656, Peter Godfrey, and d. 16 Apr. 1716.

Bellingham, 11 Apr. 1656 to some family in the Geneal. Reg. XI. 201, call. William Parchment. Surely we may presume this to be wanton folly, or inexcusab. carelessness. Was it design. for a sneer at the dep.-gov. ?

Of this name (some with final e, more without it), it seems impossible to unravel the whole line and lines. It will be seen, that I have given at least, a fair sample. Thirty-six of the name had. in 1834, been grave at Harvard alone, and Mr. Farmer says fifty-nine others at the various colleges of New England and New Jersey and Union of N. York. Of these, eleven had been clergy from Harvard College and the same number from the others.

JOHN, Charlestown 1658, was a witness 30 Mar. 1671, then call. 55 yrs. old. He may have married Hannah, d. of John Poulter, and as Shattuck says, liv. at Concord, yet the age would be discord. with such suppos. but cannot be the man wh. was at Guilford 1673, married that year Martha French, had John, b. 1675; Mary, 14 May 1678; Nathaniel, 10 Feb. 1680; Ebenezer, 27 Feb. 1682; Mercy, 1684; Jonathan, 1686; Elizabeth 1 Oct. 1688; and Naomi, Oct. 1690, in wh. year he d. all the ch. then liv.

Of the charact. of so disting. a politician the lineaments will borrow colors from the artist's pencil; yet that of Hutch. II. 213, 214, shows an honorab. impartiality, especially when we reflect how he must have kn. the envenom. hatred of his relat. the Mathers. Something darker is the portrait in Bancroft, III. 100, but he may have mistak. the secret feeling of Dudley's heart, and fell into wonderful error, when he closed the relation with that sad retribut. "His grave is among strangers," for all Roxbury could testify that his final resting place is close to that of his father and that he was buried in his native town, where he passed the last eighteen yrs. of his life. In later editions the historian struck out that clause of malediction. His will of 27 Oct. 1719, ment. only two son and bequeathes "his body to be buried with his f."

One of the most curious combinat. in N. E. Hist. is detail. in his corresp. with Incr. and Cotton Mather, 1708, for wh. see 1 Mass. Hist. Coll. III. 126-137. Both of the rev. casuists display much shrewdness and more malignity.

Catharine, widow of Samuel Hackburne, whose maiden name was Dighton, and wh. married 8 Nov. 1653, Rev. John Allin of Dedham. The ch. of both ws. were, perhaps, Thomas, bred at Emanuel Coll. Cam bridge, where he had his degrees 1626, and 1630, but certain. he came not to our country bef. 1636, if at all; yet that he did come, may be argu. from the strange add. of sen. to the name of the father at his elect. as Dep.
