(With reference to the family of MR. JOSSE GLOVER, the following notes taken some years ago from the Suffolk Court files (with the kindly assistance of my
friend Mr. William P. Upham, who called them to my notice) ought to
be preserved; and no  better occasion has  ever occurred than now when I have
given so many wills bearing on the ancestry of Mrs. Sarah Winghrope, Mrs.
Elizabeth Winthrop and Mrs. Priscilla Appleton, daughters of MR. GLOVER and
the parties concerned in the  suit about the estate  of DR. JOHN GLOVER, the son
of REV. JOSSE GLOVER.  Some account of him, by the way will be found in
Munck's History of the College of Physicians.   Henryh F. Waters
