"* 3. Ann or Hannah Harding, elder surviving daughter of John Harding by his first wife Mary, was born probably between 1611 and 1613. She probably became of age by St. Stephen's Day [26 Dec.] 1634, on which day she was to get part of her inheritance from her father's will. By May 1635 she had married Thomas1 Buttolph, born. ca. 1603, perhaps at Raynham, Norfolk, England, a glover. Tho: Buttolph aged 32 and wife Ann aged 24 came on the Abigail, Richard Hackwell, Master, in May 1635 [John Camden Hotten, Original Lists, p. 73; C. E. Banks, Planters of the Commonwealth, p.p. 161-167].

Thomas Buttolph died at Boston between 25 May 1667 and 18 June 1667, dates of execution and probation of his will [New England Hist. and Gen. Register, 16:159 f.]. His wife died at Boston on 10 Oct. 1680, and was buried at the Granary Burying Ground, gravestone giving the age as 8, probably an error for 68. She dated her will 17 Sept. 1680, probated 10 Nov. 1680. A typed genealogy of this family was compiled by the late W. H. Eldridge of Twin Falls, Idaho, copy on file in the library of the New Eng'd Historic Genealogical Society. The name was later, in many instances, corrupted to Buttles, and a family of that name is commemorated by Buttles Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, as I was told in 1938 by the late Guy Buttolph, formerly Buttles, of gambier, Ohio. Irving Street, Boston, was once called Buttolph Street.
