p. 164 Bullet5.gif (101 bytes) STANIFORD, or STANIFORTH, JOHN, Ipswich, married before 1680, Margaret, daughter of Thomas Harris, had prob. ch, for the name was long kn. there.  THOMAS, Concord 1644, of what I have nothing except a suggestion on Farmer's interleav. copy, that he may have been at Casco in 1658.  Thomas, Charleston, had David, Richard, Rebecca, and Elizabeth all baptisted August 16, 1688, when he entered into covenant with that ch. and is styled "the blind Man," which was sufficient description at the time, it may be though for our distant day, it would have been equally good, had we got the name of the mother.   Of thos children the ages were 8, 5, 2, and 1; and after had baptisted Samuel, 8 June 1690; and Martha, 26 Feb 1693.  Perhaps this was the same as Stanford, for so Morton, the min. of C wrote it, but as he was lately come from England it is uncertain.  Widow: Sarah S. died at 11 Dec 1707.
