About John Harndell, of Newport

Hugh Mosher's first wife was "REBECCA MAXSON, daughter of Richard and Rebecca Maxson of Portsmouth RI; d. between 29 Dec 1707 and 25 Feb 1707/8.

"She is frequently identified erroneously as a daughter of John Harndell of Newport, probably b/c of some unfortunate omissions in the abstract of his will in Austin, Gen Dict of RI. It is dated 9 Feb 1685 and proved in 1687. The original, in the library of the Newport Hist Soc, in Bk 5, p. 131-2, names daughter Mary Stanton, her husband John, and their children, who received the land and buildings. It also names 'daughter-in-law Rebeckah Mosure, wife of Hugh Mosure of Portsmouth,' to whom he gave only a good ewe sheep; and 'son-in-law John Maxson,' to whom he also gave a ewe. Austin omitted the words 'in-law' before Rebeckah, also all mention of John Maxson. 'In-law' usually meant step at that time and it certainly does this time, for the wife of a son would have borne the name Harndell. The name of the stepson [Rebecca's brother, John] identifies [Rebecca's] maiden name as Maxson."
