[NEHGR 53:413] Samuel King, d. 1721, p 333. He was a son of William and Dorothy (Hayne?) King of Salem, mar Oct. 10 1660, Francis, dau of William and Clemence Ludlam of Matlock England, and Southampton NY, who died 14 Jan 1692, aged about 53 years.
[Savage 3:27] Salem. Came from London in the Abigail in 1635, aged 28. Freeman 25 May 1636. Had Deliverance 31 October 1641. WK is not on the list of church men as was commonly the case; but he seems to have been the superior polemic, if not devotee - as in the antinom perversity of 1637, he was one of the 5 men required to be disarmed for the public safety; and in the more violent ragings of spiritual insubordination in 1659, his kindness to the Quakers exposed him to whipping and banishment, from which he was restored upon repentance in 1661.
[NYGBR 33:71-73] WK first traced in a list of 106 passengers entitled ``bound for New England, Waymouth, ye 20 March 1635'' which includes WK, aged 40, Dorothy his wife, aged 34, Mary Kinge his daughter, aged 12, Katheryn his daughter, aged 10, Willm Kinge his sonne, aged 8, Hanna Kinge his daughter, aged 6. As WK selected Weymought as his point of departure, it is conjectured that he lived in the south of England. In the register of the Abbey Church of St. Mary at Sherborne, Dorset are many entryies of the name King and among them the following: ``1616-17, Feb 17 William Kinge et Dorothiae Hayne nupt'' [see Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica, IV:264]. They did not appear to live there as there are no baptism entries for any of their children.
WK settled at Salem where he was made a freeman and recieved the same year a grant for 40 acres at Jeffrey's Creek (now Manchester) and in 1638 30 acres at Royall Side at the head of the Basse River (now Beverly) where the King homestead was pleasantly situated.
WK was a grand juror on 1637, took an active part in the religious controversies of the time and identified himself with the Antinomians, a step which placed him under the ban of the Salem authorities and admonished to sever his connection or disarm himself. He died intestate about 1650/1. In 1684, DK received commage of one acre at Southold LI where her daughters Hannah (wife of Lieut. Richard Brown) and Deliverance (wife of John Tuthill) were living.
[NYGBR 38:139] finds a William King and Anne (Bowdiedge) who have a son William at Hawkchurch, Dorset. Various circumstantial evidence is suggestive, but the question is whether the son WK is the same as WK the immigrant? .in -.5
