1A New England name. H. F. W.

2 I am inclined to think that this Jonas Stockton was a son of William Stockton, clerk, parson of Barkeswell, Warwick (see his will in my Gleanings, Part II, p.149) and consequently a kinsman of John Stockton, parson of Alcester, whose daughter Patience was the wife of Edward Holyoke, the first New England ancestor of Presi dent Holyoke of Harvard College. Col. Chester seems to have read this name John instead of Jonas. H. F. W.

This connection of Fitch with Goodwin suggests the inference that the above William Goodwyn belonged to the family of that name in Bocking. H. F. W.


Feb. 13 Thomas Upcher of Colchester, tailor, bachelor, about 23 (?), at his own government, and Ann Ayre, maiden, about 22, daughter of Robert Ayre, innkeeper, deceased, and her mother also; Thomas Brasey of St. Martin's, Ludgate, draper, testifieth; at St. Leonard's, Foster Lane.

Aug. 6 Personally appeared Elizabeth Saunders of St. Bride's widow, and alleges that Thomas Atkinson of the same parish, horner, a widower aged about 70, intends marriage with Susan Lloyd of the same parish, maiden, about 24, daughter of Thomas Lloyd of Cherborough, Salop, brasier, who consents; the said Susan now lives as a servant with the said Atkinson and so hath done for four years past; Rose Andrews, wife of Robert Andrews of St. Bride's, cutler, natural sister of the said Susan, testifies; at St. Peter's Paul's Wharf.

"There is a King's Langley as well as an Abbot's Langley near Watford in Herts. I have the will of a Robert King of King's Langley (1627) who appoints wife Alice executrix and brother Raph King overseer. Daniel King of Lynn, Mass., had a brother John who was vicar of Abbot's Langley and a father Ralph who was a draper and a prominent man in Watford. Contemporary with him was a Francis King, also of Watford, mercer, who in his will (1630) mentions a brother Raphe King, of London; and he appoints for overseers a brother John Kinge and a cousin Raphe Kinge. This latter may have been the Ralph of Watford, father of our immigrant to Lynn. The brother John is shown clearly by the will of Thomas Bigg of Watford (1623) to have been of King's Langley. Who Raphe Kinge of London was I am unable to say. There was a Raphe Kinge at that time a vintner in Pope's Head Alley Lombard street, whose pedigree is given in the Visitation of London 163334 and who belonged to the same family as the Bishop of London. But I have not yet proved the connection of all these. H. F. W.

1This was the elder brother of our famous Roger Williams who spoke of him as a Turkey merchant in London, which we have proved him to have been. If Col. Chester had only given his age I should have been saved some guess work. It will be noted, too, that my extract gives the maiden name and parentage of Sidrach Williams' wife. H. F. W.
