An unfaithful steward of Governor Winthrop, bearing the same name, perhaps the same person, fled to, Plymouth before 10 Oct. 1640, and was then in extreme poverty and distress. Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., XXXVI. 169. More than a dozen suits were commenced against him in Plymouth, at the court holden in December, 1641. Plym. Col. Rec., VII. 24-27.
