This is our Robert Kayne of Boston. Col. Chester has entered the name as Cokayne and makes a note: "The commencement of his name eaten away but the 'Kayne' distinct." I examined it closely and was assisted in the examination by Our associate Mr. Frank F. Starr. We both agreed that Kayne was the entire name; there was a wormhole just before it, but not the slightest traces of any writing; nor was there quite room enough for another syllable; and the first letter of the name was a great K, such as would naturally begin the name. Moreover the parish registers of St. Michael Cornhill, published by the Harleian Society, confirm all this, as the following extracts will show:


1618, May 14, Benjamin Kaine, son of Robt and Ann Kaine.
1620, June 15, John Kaine, son of Robert and Ann Kaine.

1622, May 9, Joseph, son of Robart and An Keayne.

Mr. Robert Keayne of Boston, according to Savage, was a member of the Merchant Taylors' Company of London and came in the Defence 1635, with wife Ann and son Benjamin. He was one of the founders of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery company and died 23 March, 1656. His widow was married, 16 Oct., 1660, to Samuel Cole. For notices of the Keayne family see N. E. Hist. Gen Reg., vol. VI, pp. 89-92, 152-8; XXV, 277. See also my Gleanings, Part I, pp. 1, 2, 55; Part II, pp. 152, 153. H. F. W.

and Prudence Stone of St. Andrew's Holborn, widow of Symon Stone, late of the same parish, gent, deceased three years since, she upwards of 33 years old. [Against this, on the margin, was written "vacat."]

1 See Convers Wills in my Gleanings, Part III, p. 237. H. F. W. I have numerous wills relating to the Stoughton family. Colonel Chester's extract not only omits the ages of the parties and the fact that Mr. Bury was a bach elor, but leaves out entirely the clause which shows that the maiden was a sister of Nathaniel Stoughton, the goldsmith of London, and that her mother was still living. The new facts enable us to fix the family to which she belonged as living in Guilford, Surrey, not Walford, as in my extract, or Watford, as Colonel Chester has it. For their pedigree see Visitation of London, 1633-4. H. F. W.
