GEORGE, Scituate 1638, younger br. of major Simon, and s. of Richard of Horsmonden, Co. Kent, where he was bapt. Dec. 1614, heavily fined in 1641, for erroneous opinions, had Deborah and Daniel, both bapt. 14 Sept. 1645; and Joshua, 2 Nov. foll. rem. soon aft. perhaps to Maryland. Deborah m. Paul Sears, and, it is said, descend, are num. HENRY, Groton, fourth s. of major Simon, m. 18 July 1674, Mary Lakin, d. of John of the same, had Henry, b. 11 Apr. 1675; Simon, 8 Oct. 1678; Mary, 3 Aug. 1680; John, 3 Sept. 1682; Hezekiah; Joseph, a. 1686; and Sarah; but it must not be thot. that all these exc. the first, were b. at G. or any one other town, in those yrs. of Ind. incurs. At Lancaster he liv. in the latter part of his life, but L. as well as G. was more than once destr. by the enemy. By sec. w. Dorcas Cutler, sis. perhaps, of the w. of his br. Daniel, he had Samuel, 31 May 1690, a man of distinct. wh. command. a regim. at the capt. of Louisburg, 1745,; James; Josiah, a. 1693; Abigail; Jonathan, a. 1696; Susanna; and Tabitha, wh. d. soon; and he d. 1701. His wid. m. 1704, Benjamin Bellows.

---------------------------------------

Lakin, John, Reading, br. prob. younger of William, was driv. from Groton, I suppose, dur. the Ind. war, but had, by w. Mary, Sarah, b. 4 [p.46] Feb. 1662; William, 12 May 1664; Abigail, 13 Mar. 1667; Joseph, 14 Apr. 1670; Benjamin, 6 Nov. 1672; nd Josiah, 14 Sept. 1675; and prob. went back to G. where he was ens. and had been of the first sett. d. 21 Mar. 1697. His f. was s. of William, and d. in Eng. says Butler, and his wid. m. William Martin; but his name is not giv. Three of the s. perhaps al, had fam. He had a d. Mary, elder than any of these ch. m. 18 July 1674, Henry Willard; and Sarah m. a. 1691, Benjamin Willard. THOMAS, is, by Farmer, mistak. for the foll. WILLIAM, Groton, freem. 1670, d. 10 Dec. 1672, in 90th or 91st yr. Tradit. more credib. than common makes him bring the gr.ch. William and John, perhaps at the same time with William Martin of Reading, wh. m. their mo. yet it does not tell the name of their f. nor whether the mo. m. in Eng. to Martin, nor whether the gr.f. had w. on thi side of the water, mor when or whence he came. Shattuck, 95, borrows the tradit. of Butler in Hist. of G. 273, that he emigr. in his old age from Redington. But this must be mistake, as there is no such place in Eng. Prob. the parish of Ridlington is meant. That is a small parish in the hundred of Martinsley, Co. Rutland, 2 and ¼ ms. from Uppingham; or more likely the native seat of the Lakins may have been the smaller parish of the same name in the hundred of Tunstead, Co. Norfk. 4 and ¼ ms. from North Walsham. If he came with Martin his old age should not be thot. of; for he pass. above thirty yrs. here. WILLIAM, Reading, br. of John, by w. Lydia, d. of the first Abraham Brown, had William, b. 6 May 1655; John, 3 Jan. 1658; and Jonathan, 28 June 1661; rem. to Groton and had Abraham, 10 Jan. 1664, d. soon; William, May 1665; Abraham, again, 11 Sept. 1667; and Elias, 8 Jan. 1669; was freem. 1672, unless (wh. is not prob.) it was he, not his gr.f. in 1670; lieut. 1673; and d. 22 Feb. 1700. Great list of desced. appears in Butler's valua. Hist. of G.
