Charles Henry Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" has a lot of listings
under the surname of "Jones," but no "Teaque" or "Christopher." If Teague
Jones was the captain of the Mayflower (I don't know), he would have sailed
it back to England and not been counted as a settler. [The pilgrims & other
passengers lived onboard the Mayflower for the first year while the men went
ashore to hunt and explore. The ship did sail back to England, I understand,
but apparently no one knows what ever became of it.]
Pope's book lists two men with this name:
Richard, Barnstable, atba (able to bear arms) 1643. Before the Court
1649. He may be the Richard of Yarmouth, who d. 11 Sept. 1681; nunc. will
proved by Mrs. Desire Gorum 17 Oct. following. Left all to his wife for the
bringing up of his small children. Widow Alice deposed.
Richard, Boston, "that was Thomas Hawkins' man" was cured from
sickness by Thomas Oliver, and the town paid the bill 25 (11) 1646.
It would be so interesting to know what that sickness might have been
and what was done to cure it!
