382 BROWN.—CARVER.  

   6.   Wrestling (s. of Wrestling next above) was a Deacon in Kingston, and had Wrestling, Thomas, Isaac, Elisha, Mary, &c., and d. 1767.

   7.   John (brother of the preceding [son of Wrestling 5]) had Joseph and Job in Duxbury.

   8.   Nathaniel Brewster gra. H. U. 1642, a Clergyman, went to England and returned, and finally settled at Brookhaven, L. I., and d. 1690, leaving John, Timothy, and Daniel.   This Nathaniel has been supposed to have been a descendant, perhaps a gr. son, of William   There are many descendants from the worthy Elder in Duxbury, Pembroke, Plymouth, Kingston, and elsewhere.

   BROWN.—John Brown was one of the original proprietors of Bridgewater, and of course lived in Duxbury between 1645 and 1650.   We have no certain account of him or his family, but take him to be the man who was chosen Assistant 1636, and often afterwards one of the Commissioners of the united Colonies from 1644 to 1655, and who died at Winnamoiset near Rehoboth 1662.—James Brown, an Assistant, also, who lived at Swansey, was his son, and m. Lydia, D. of John Howland.   [See N. E. Memorial, p. 297, note.]   Peter Brown came in the May Flower 1620, and whether he was father of John, or otherwise related, is not ascertained; Martha and Mary (wife and D. perhaps) are named 1627.

   CARVER.—John Carver, first Governor of Plymouth colony, d. April 1621, and his wife soon after, and the old Colony records furnish no further account of his family.   When he arrived in 1620 his family appears to have consisted of 8 persons, of whom John Howland was one, and is supposed to have m. Elizabeth, one of the Daughters.   In the allotments of land in 1623, and in the division of the cattle in 1627, the name of Carver does not appear.   A family, however, of this name, was in Marshfield ever after 1638, at which date Robert Carver had a grant of land at Green's harbor, and died there 1680, æ. 86.   John Carver (son of Robert, perhaps,) d. in Marshfield 1679, æ. 42, leaving a widow, Milicent, who was D. of William Ford, and 8 children.—William Carver (eldest s. of John) died at Marshfield 1760, æ. 102, and is noticed by Gov. Hutchinson and Dr. Belknap, in the biography of Gov. Carver, as the grandson of the Governor; but in Pemberton's Ms. Journal, in the library of Mass. His. Society, he is called "the nephew of Governor Carver, being his brother's son."   Joshua Carver, late of Marshfield, æ. over 90, was of the same family.—John Carver (s. of John, probably,) lived in Plymouth, went from Marshfield 1680, m. Mary, D. of Jonathan Barnes, and his son, Dea. Josiah, d. in Plymouth 1751, æ. 63.   There was a Richard Carver in Watertown, who died 1638, and in his will mentioned his wife
