About Capt. John Lynde

Note: This branch up from John Barrett b. 1704 is somewhat speculative in that I (as well as some others who appear responsible) have made a bit of a best guess that the wife of that John was Dorothy Lynde. Even though she was as much as 12 years older than him.

In 1706, one Jonathan Sargent, "in behalf of Capt. Lynde's children" sold Thomas Pierce's rights in the estate willed to him by his father Samuel Pierce to John Pierce. The estate was occupied by John Pierce, anyway. Also sold was the "right in S. Pierce estate"[21]. In 1724/5, Mary Pierce Lynde's heirs -- her sons John & Thomas Lynde; her daughter Elizabeth Lynde Waite, widow of Nathaniel Waite of Malden, Middlesex co., MA; her daughter and son-in-law Abigail & Jonathan Waite of Lynn, Essex co., MA; and grandchildren Jonathan & Phineas Sargent (sons of Mary Lynde Sargent, apparently deceased) -- gave a general quitclaim of all rights in the Jonathan Pierce estate[21]. In 1734, this same group of heirs deeded or sold to James Pierce the "widow's thirds" of 2 acres & 20 poles of land, which had previously belonged to Thomas Pierce[21]. MARRIAGE #1 Sometime circa 1672-1678 when John was 24, he first married Mary PIERCE, daughter of Samuel PIERCE & Mary [surname not known], in Charlestown, Suffolk co., MA[1,18,22,23,24,25,26,27,28].

CHILDREN 13. i. Mary LYNDE Mary was born on 5 July 1678. On 13 March 1700 when Mary was 21, she married Jonathan SARGEANT, in Malden, Middlesex co., MA by The Reverend Michael Wigglesworth [42]. They had two children, Jonathan & Phineas, who were named in the quitclaim over her mother's estate. Mary was not named in the suit and so must have died before 1724/5.

14.  ii.  Elizabeth LYNDE  Elizabeth married Nathaniel WAITE, son of Family of Captain John WAITE & Mary HILLS.  
15.  iii.  John LYNDE  John lived in Leicester, Worcester co., MA[21].  
16.  iv.  Thomas LYNDE  Thomas was born on 24 October 1685 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[39].  
17.  v.  Ann LYNDE  Ann was born on 13 August 1687 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA, under the first name "Anna"[39].  
18.  vi.  Abigail LYNDE  Please see her own page.  
19.  vii.  Samuel LYNDE  Samuel was born on 29 November 1690 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[39].  

MARRIAGE #2 On 25 August 1691 when John was 43, he second married Elizabeth HILLS, in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[1,31,32,33,34,35]. Elizabeth died on 29 January 1698/9 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA as "Elizabeth, wf. of John [38 y.]"[11].

CHILDREN 20. i. Dorothy LYNDE Dorothy was born on 20 December 1692 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[44] and married Jacob GREEN.

21.  ii.  Joanna LYNDE  Joanna was born on 22 February 1696/7 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[45] and married Samuel SPRAGUE.  
22.  iii.  Mehitable LYNDE  Mehitable was born on 11 March 1697/8 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[45] and married [not known] BARRETT.  

MARRIAGE #3 By 1700 when John was 52, he third married Judith WORTH, in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[1,21,36,37,38]. Judith was born in 1652, as estimated from her death information. She died in Stoneham, Middlesex co., MA on 4 February 1735/6; she was 83.

CHILD 23. i. Martha LYNDE Martha was born on 6 July 1700 in Malden, Middlesex co., MA[46].
