Gen Reg of the First Settlers of NE: LINCOLN, ROBERT, Boston d 6 May 1663. Records. SAMUEL, came from Hingham, in England 1637; lived a short time at Salem, and removed to Hingham, Mass. His children were, Samuel; Daniel, b 1652; Mordecai, b 1657; Mary; Thomas; Martha; Sarah; Rebecca. The Hon. Levi Lincoln, lieutenant-governour of Massachusetts, was a descendant from this family. Lincoln, Hist. Hingham, 126, 148. STEPHEN, Hingham, came from Windham, in England, and arrived in this country in 1638, with his wife, and son Stephen, who had but one son and three grandsons, viz.: Stephen, (a bachelor) David, and James. David has sons, David, Matthew, and Isaac. Isaac grad at H.C. 1722, and had sons, Isaac, James, Nathaniel, and Heman. The second David d 1 Feb 1814, ae 79. He was father of Rev. Perez Lincoln of Gloucester who d 20 June, 1811. Ibid. 151. THOMAS, a weaver, brother of Samuel, came from Hingham ENG in 1633 and settled at Hingham MA a. 1636. His 1st wife was Susanna, who d 1641; his 2d whom he m 1663 was Mary Chubbuck. He d 2 Sept 1675, leaving no issue. Ibid. 148. THOMAS, a cooper, of Hingham 1636, may be the one admitted freeman in 1637. He had a son Benjamin, admitted freeman 1677, and a grandson Benjamin, who was father to Col. Benjamin Lincoln, whose son Benjamin was the celebrated revolutionary general, who d 9 May 1810. Bela Lincoln, H.C. 1754 and M. D. at Aberdeen, was brother of the general. Benjamin and Theodore Lincoln, H.C. 1777 and 1785, were sons of the general. Benjamin married a daughter of James Otis, and d. 18 Jan 1788 ae 32 leaving two sons, Benjamin H.C. 1806 who d. at Demarara, and James Otis H.C. 1807 who d at Hingham 12 Aug 1818. Ibid. THOMAS, a husbandman, settled in Hingham as early at 1638. Ibid. THOMAS, Hingham 1636, was a miller, removed to Taunton before 1652; was living in 1683 at the age of 80 years. Of the four persons of the name of Thomas Lincoln, above, two were admitted freemen in 1637 and 1642, but it is not easy to designate them. Twenty-two persons of the name had graduated in N. E. in 1826, among whom may be found divines, lawyers, physicians, and statesmen, who may trace to the above as their common ancestors. Ibid.

STEPHEN, Hingham, s. of the preced. never m. was ens. town clk. and d. 27 Dec. 1717; THOMAS, Hingham 1636, the weaver, elder br. of the first Samuel, was two yrs. or more at Watertown and Charlestown, having, says the Cushing MS. come with Nicholas Jacob, a relat. in 1633; had gr. of lds. in 1635, and house lot gr. 3 July 1636, so that he would be judged a first sett. with Hobart, and may have been the freem. of MR. 1638 or of 18 May 1642. His first w. Susanna d. Mar. 1641, and he had ano. w. Mary, who, by one report, prob. erron. outliv. him, and d. 2 Sept. 1675, leav. no ch.

Thomas, John, Samuel, Sarah, Mary, and s.-in-law Joseph Willis, perhaps h. of Sarah, and Sarah's s. Thomas. In Geneal. Reg. VI. 188, it is print. Linton. THOMAS, Hingham, the cooper, s. of Thomas, in O. E. had gr. in the town 1636, more likely, in my judgment, than either of the preced. to have been the freem. of Mar. 1638, had, bef. com. from Eng. m. 1630, a a. of Andrew Lane, had two ch. of wh. one d. and the other, Sarah, was brot. and d. soon aft. arr. and here had Thomas, bapt. 6 May 1638; Joseph, 22 Nov. 1640, bef. ment.; Benjamin, 7 May 1643, bef. ment.; Deborah, 3 Aug. 1645; and Sarah, 6 Oct. 1650, d. young. His w. wh. name is unkn. d. 13 Feb. 1683, and he d. 28 Sept. 1691. His will, of 13 July 1688, names the four liv. ch. Deborah m. 13 June 1678, as sec. w. Samuel Thaxter. Tradit. brings him from West of Eng. where he left br. John This may seem not improb. if we substitute E. for W. The name belong. to Co. Norf'k. or the adj. Co. Lincoln. THOMAS, Hingham 1638, the husbandman, br. of the first Stephen, prob. younger, had gr. of ld. 1638, came, says the Cushing MS. in 1638 from Wymondham, Co. Norf'k. with Jeremiah Moore, perhaps is the freem. of 18 May 1642, had w. Margaret, d. of Richard Langer, and ch. Caleb, bapt. 8 Oct. 1643, d. soon; Joshua and Caleb, tw. 2 Mar. 1645, of wh. the latter, I think, liv. not long; Susanna; Mary, b. 10, bapt. 23 Apr. 1648; Sarah, 29 Sept. bapt. 6 Oct. 1650; Thomas, 26 Dec. 1652; Eliz. and Ruth, b. 19 Nov. 1664. He d. 16 Aug. 1692; but his will, of 24 May 1681, names the w. and eight ch. His d. Susanna m. 16 May 1666, to Joseph Barstow of Scituate; Mary m. 5 Jan. 1675, Francis Barker of Duxbury; Sarah m. 6 May 1675, Thomas Marsh; Eliz. m. 23 Jan. 1678, Daniel Lincoln, bef. ment.; and Ruth, m. Jan. 1685, Samuel Gill. It seems very curious, that at our Hingham, within the first three yrs. of its sett. should be found four heads of fams. nam. Thomas Lincoln, and yet at Hingham in O. E. where this fam. name was quite freq. not one Thomas occurs in the rec. from 1600 to 1663 incl. neither as f. nor s. among ms. 15 in number, of wh. 8 were of males, nor among 28 bur. nor among, 62 bapt. Clearly the other parishes of Co. Norf'k. had the name of bapt. in greater abund. for males of this surname. THOMAS, Taunton, s. of Thomas, the miller, of Hingham, b. in Eng. had Mary, b. 12 May 1652; Sarah, 25 Sept. 1654; Thomas, 21 Apr. 1656; Samuel, 16 Mar 1658; Jonah, 7 July 1660; Hannah, 15 Mar. 1663; d.
