JOHN, Watertown 1633, was of Boxted in Co. Suff.
and came in the Handmaid 1630, from London, arr. at Plymouth, where he
cont. over one yr.; freem. 3 Sept. 1634, by w. Amie had Pilgrim, b. 25 Aug.
1634, d. soon; Pilgrim, again; John, 16 Feb. 1637; Benjamin, bur. 1639;
Samuel, 30 Sept. 1640, the freem. 1690, wh d. 22 Nov. 1711; beside
Abigail, 11 Oct. 1643, prob. d. young; Sarah; Mary; and Ruth. He had sec.
w. Joanna, wh. d. 25 Aug. 1683, aged 80; and he d. at the age of 90, 12
Oct. 1684. Prob. Sarah and Mary were b. in Eng. Sarah m. John Marion;
Mary m. Thomas Orton; and Pilgrim m. 22 Apr. 1656, William Baker, and,
next, . . . . . . Stedman. Yet the order of these ms. is revers. as Bond, 755,
shows, in a deed of 9 Feb. 1704 of pt. of est. of John Marion, in wh. she
had some share, and is call. Pilgrim Baker, formerly P. Stedman, and d. of
John Eddy, tho. I can explain the blunder of the scrivener only by the long
interval of time to cause it. When the m. of Stedman was solemniz. or
when Baker the first h. d. or what was Stedman's name of bapt. has been
sought in vain.
