This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: America was Richard Kent, who was in Ipswich, Mass., as early as 1634 or 1635, and died in Newbury, Mass, June 15, 1654. His son John, who was born in Newbury July 20, 1645, was the father of six sons and five daughters, born between 1667 and 1689. The children of four of these sons (John, Joshua, Joseph and Ebenezer) are given. The book contains a photograph of the old Kent homestead in Leicester, Mass, which has been in the Kent family since 1743, and a plan of the original farm of Ebenezer Kent in the same place. The Noyes pedigree has been prepared with scholarly care, and abounds in facts of the highest genealogical value. The common ancestor of the family was the Rev. William Xoyes, who was born in 1568, and died in Cholderton, Wiltshire, England, before 30 April, 1622. Of his six children, two (James and Nathaniel) came to New England in 1633, the former of whom obtained celebrity as a teacher and writer, and the latter as a prominent citizen of Newbury, Mass. The line of descent in this pamphlet is through William1, Nicholas5, John3, John4, Moses, Moses', Samuel7 and James Sullivan8. It would be a matter for congratulation if the compiler would devote a portion of his energy and scholarship to the preparation of an exhaustive genealogy of the family, one branch of which he has so successfully treated in the present publication. The Mayton genealogy represents the honest and commendable attempt of a busy man to preserve the memory of his ancestors and to carry down to the present day an approximately complete record of the family name. The descent is traced from Capt. Thomas Slay ton, who was born in England, Sept. 20, 1682, and came to America, and married in 1707, Hannah Culwood, by whom he had two sons, Phineas and Thomas, more
