BLY of Salem, Massachusetts

My original BLY immigrant ancestor was John BLY. He was a bricklayer, and in Salem on 11 November 1663 he married Rebecca GOLT (sometimes spelled GOTT), daughter of Deacon Charles GOLT/GOTT.

John and his son William both testified against Bridget Bishop during the Salem Witch Trials.

Testimony of John and Willliam Bly, dated June 27, 1692
