Notes for James Hadlock:
Gen. Dict of New Eng. Settlers: Vol. 2, p. 327: "James Hadlock, Roxbury, married 19 May 1669, Sarah Draper, had Sarah, b. 16 Dec. 1670, removed to Salem, there had, in 1678, wife Rebecca, daughter probably of Richard Hutchinson; sons James, and John, daughters Mary, Hannah, Sarah, and Rebecca. But possibly he had some of these by another wife for the will of Hutchinson, 1682, calls him son-in-law, but names not the wife nor any Hadlock grandchildren except Sarah. James, jr. was included in the tax list (Mr. Felt assures me) of 1682 for Salem village."
