  • Notes 
    • One of TSW's eight "gateway ancestors," and one of DGH's four. One of the few 17th-century immigrants of armigerous descent who appears to have been fully aware of it. Arms: Azure three standing bowls silver in each a swine's head erect gold a mullet for difference. Crest: A buck's head sable collared attired and eared gold erased gules and charged on the neck with a pallet between two roundles silver. According to the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (citation details below), although he appears to have served in the usual variety of public offices, he was also cited several times for public drunkenness -- which is entirely consonant with aristocratic forebears.
