states remained in the Bordman family about a hundred and fifty years. Mr. Bordman was a tailor, and was early appointed Steward and Cook of Harvard College, which last office he held until his death. He resigned the office of Steward in 1667, and Thomas Danforth was elected in his stead. Judge Sewall, in noticing his death, styles him Major Bordman. This was probably a title, indicating his office in College, a Steward being in some sort a majordomo. 2. Andrew, s. of William (1), m. Ruth Bull, 15 Oct. 1669, and had Andrew, b. 22 Aug. 1670; Ruth, b. 15 Jan. 1671-2, m. Rev. Benjamin Wadsworth, President of Harvard College, 30 Dec. 1696, and d. without issue, 17 Feb. 1744-5; Moses, b. 8 July 1672, d. 15 Feb. 1672-3; Martha, b. 31 Oct. 1675, d. 14 June 1676; Abigail, b. 10 Mar. 1677-8, d. 10 July 1678. Such is the record of births; but there are manifest mistakes in it. The son Andrew, in a manuscript account of his family, dates his own birth 22 Aug. 1671, and that of his sister
