[p.625] Wood, or Wood

One WILLIAM came, 1635, in the Hopewell, Capt. Babb, a husbandman, aged 27, with Eliz. 24, wh. may have been his sis. or w. and John, 26, bef. ment. prob. his br. and it is clear, that if this be the author (wh. I neither affirm nor deny), two points decide against the Concord claim to him; for at C. w. of William d. 1 Sept. 1659, was call. Margaret; and the passeng. in the autumn of 1635 on the Hopewell, must have been b. 1608, while Shattuck's client could not have come into our world aft. 1585; or, if his faculties were not weaken. when he made his will, 15 Sept. 1670, reckon. hims. as 88 yrs. old, still earlier was his advent. At C. no ch. was b. to him; but he had ch. perhaps all, certain most. b. in Eng. Michael; Ruth, wh. m. Thomas Wheeler; and Abigail, wh. m. 24 Mar. 1667, Stephen Hosmer. The will names, beside Michael, Ruth and her h. the gr.d. Abigail Hosmer.

Notes for John Houghton Jr.:
Colonial Families of the United States of America: Volume 7

Tradition says the American founder of this family is descended from Sir Richard HOGHTON, Bart., of Houghton Tower, Lancashire, England. His family fought for the King although Ralph HOUGHTON of Lancashire is said to have fought against [p.260] the King. The HOGHTONS of Hoghton Tower are descendants of Roger DE BUSLI, one of the followers of William the Conqueror, A.D. 1066. The earliest ancestors of John the emigrant, known in the genealogy and his descent through three generations is: John HOUGHTON, I, buried at Eaton Bray, 23d April, 1618, no further record. John HOUGHTON, II, christened May, 1593, m. Damaris BUCKMASTER and had ten children. He was a passenger on the Abigail, 1635, where his age was entered by mistake as four years, an error probably through carelessness. He was in 1629 and 1630 Warden of St. Mary's Church, Eaton Bray. During his wardenship the tower of this ancient church was repaired. This church was built in the beginning of the twelfth century. In the year 1635 the ship Abigail 300 tons, Capt. Sir David KIRK'S flagship, sailed from London with many families and servants because of the religious troubles disturbing old England. Many of those who came out were Puritans and others had Puritanical leanings, and among those who sailed from London in the Abigail was John HOUGHTON, II, the progenitor of Capt. Timothy HOUGHTON. This John was christened 19th May, 1593, in St. Mary's Church at Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire, where his father, John HOUGHTON, I, was buried 28th April, 1618. The following is a transcription of the passenger list 28th June, 1635, passengers from London to New England in the ship Abigail, HACKWELL, Master, John HOUGHTON, III, four years old, certificate of his conformity from Justice of the Peace and Minister of Eaton Bray, in county of Bedford, England. This gentleman did not remain in New England but returned to England, where he had left his family, after the trouble had subsided. 24th December, 1624, John HOUGHTON, III, son of John II, who sailed in the Abigail was born. He came to New England about the year 1647 with his wife, Beatrix and his cousin Ralph HOUGHTON, with his wife Jane STOWE. The inscription on his tombstone in the old Granary Burying Ground, shows that John, III, died on the old Common 29th April, 1684, aged sixty years. An incidental proof of John HOUGHTON'S connection with the Houghtons of Lancashire, England, is found in the fact that one of his descendants in this country has now a sword said to have been brought from England by John, as the eldest son and heir. It has the rose and thistle on it, previously mentioned as belonging to the family coat of arms granted by King James I in 1612, by writ under the privy seal, to Sir Roger as an augmentation to his coat of arms. This sword is now in the possession of one of his descendants in Washington, D. C. He m. Beatrix, surname unknown, circa 1648-1649; after her husband's death she m. Benjamin BOSWORTH and d. 8th January, 1711-1712.
