Spencer, or Spenser,...
JOHN, E. Greenwich, in his later days, had brot. family. to that town, as in the rec. we find [Thomas, the seventh s. of John and Susanna Spencer, was b. in E. G. 22 July 1679, a. 5 o'clock in the morn. and was the first Eng. ch. b. there]. But he had liv. in some part of the Col. a dozen yrs. bef. for he was freem. 1668, yet since no trace of him is earlier seen, or any report of progenit. my conject. is that he is one of the few that came over aft. the restorat. of Charles II. and had w. and some ch. soon aft. Perhaps his w. was d. of John Greene the sec. of Warwick. He had sec. w. and d. 1684, as the will made by the town governm. ment. her and the ch. in the order, prob. of age, John, Michael, Benjamin, William, Robert, Abner, Thomas, Peleg, and Susanna.
