1886 Excerpt: ...he may be the same as this. - b. 29 Aug. 1755; or
possibly Benjamin, bapt. Old South, 3 Oct. 1756; or Robert, bapt.
Christ Church, 27 May, 1750. There is very little doubt that this
is the Peter, son of Benjamin Edes, the Revolutionary printer, b.
17 Dec. 1756, who was a political prisoner with James Lovell in
1775. A copy of his Journal, while in prison, is in the bands of
Henry H. Edes, of Boston. See Class of 1760, and note under James
Lovell, p. 19; also Drake's Biog. Diet. Born in Rawson's Lane (now
Bromficld Street), 1754. Sec Record of some of the descendants of
Thomas Clarke, by Samuel C. Clarke (of our Class of 1816), pp. 21
and 22. 6 b. 25 Mar. 1753; but perhaps William, bapt. Old South, 16

is possible that he is the Charles Apthorp whose picture is
described in Perkins's Life of Copley, p. 31. 0 See Spraguc's
Annals, v. 383. On Hunt's Catalogue the name of Thomas Oliver
appears at the North Grammar School in 1767 to 1770, and for the
reasons given under John Williams above, it seems to us that this
may be the same boy, and that he went to college from that school
instead of from ours. 1 Died before 1793; Sabine, ii. 293. II
Possibly identical with the same name on Barren's List, though we
think that more probably his father (Sabine, ii. 74), and that this
is the son, referred to there, who died in 1797. The name McNeal,
Class of 1762, may be identical with this, or the note here given
may belong under that, but we have preferred to insert it here, as
the Christian name here given corresponds to the references. 1- See
