HARRINGTON.

The earliest records of this name in New England have it Errington and Arrington.  The first of these forms soon received its aspirated prefix, making it Herrington, and this was the prevailing orthography for more than a century.  Robert Errington1, the immigrant, was one of the proprietors of Watertown in 1642.  He m. in 1649, Susannah George and had a son Thomas2, whose w., Rebecca Bemis, bore him George3, b. Aug. 1, 1695.  The latter m. Hepzibah, dau. of John and Abigail Fiske, whose sister was mother of John and Thomas Stearns of Nar. No. 2, and whose nieces were the wives of Samuel Hager and Stephen Sawin.  A cousin of Hepzibah m. Eliezer Bigelow.  So it appears that four of the oldest families in town were connected with each other by ties of blood relationship.

1. HERRINGTON, SETH4, was the 10th child of George and Hepzibah, b. Watertown, Sept. 15, 1729.  He is understood (italics mine) to have m. Sarah, dau. of Joshua and Grace (Bemis) Child, of whom mention has been made, coming here ab. 1750, possibly bef. m. took place.  They located on lot No. 23, now in possession of Ephraim Lufkin, which had been improved and built upon previously by Mrs. H.'s f.  She d. Sept. 30, 1759, leaving 4 chn., and he m. (2) Priscilla (Wilder), wid. of Benjamin Houghton of Lanc.  She had a dau., Priscilla Houghton, who d. Aug. 4, 1764, a. 5 yrs.  Seth Herrington d. Nov. 25, 1815, a. 86.  His w. d. the previous year, Jan. 28, 1814, a. 85.  He was afterward pub. to wid. Rebecca Temple, and prob. m. her a few months bef. his decease.  Chn.:
