    1. [S18802] Sketch of John Winthrop the Younger, 60.
      He left behind him an unusually large landed property, - much of it unimproved, - scattered through the jurisdictions of Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts, the heirs being seven children, two sons and five daughters, several other children having died before him. His eldest son, Fitz-John, is best remembered as general in command of the Expedition against Canada in 1690, as Agent of Connecticut at the Court of William and Mary, and as long Governor of that Colony. The younger, Wait, married for his first wife a daughter of Hon. William Browne, of Salem, and after his father's death resided chiefly in Boston, where he sat for a long period in the Executive Council, became Chief Justice of the Superior Court, and was for nearly thirty years Major-General commanding the Massachusetts Militia. His second wife and widow figures prominently in Judge Sewall's diary. The five daughters were Elizabeth, who married, first, Rev. Antipas Newman, already alluded to, and second, Zerubbabel Endecott, a son of Governor Jolin Endecott, leaving issue only by her first marriage; Lucy, who became first wife of Major Edward Palmes of New London, and died without surviiving issue; Margaret, who married John Corwin of Salem, and left issue; Martha, who became third wife of Hon. Richard Wharton of Boston, and left two daughters ; Anne, who became second wife of Hon. John Richards of Boston, and died without issue.
      Margaret is also mentioned in John Jr's will of 1661 (& 1676). Appendices III & IV.
