  • Notes 
    • He was a weaver, until 1716 when he removed to Mansfield, after which he was a yeoman farmer.

      "He fought in the French and Indian wars and was taken prisoner. The name of James Hovey, of Malden, was on a roll of English prisoners in the hands of the French and Indians in Canada, which was brought by messengers of the French governor, Vaudreil, in the winter of 1710-11. When he was taken and when he was released does not appear on the records."
