RECORD COMMISSIONERS. 



BOSTON, December 31, 1880. 

The Record Commissioners obtained the consent of the 
City Council this year, to print, as their sixth volume, the 
Land Records of Roxbury, thereby carrying out the idea 
of apportioning. the work among the various sections of our 
present city. The second volume contains Boston records ; 
the third, Charlestown records ; the fourth, Dorchester 
records ; the present, Roxbury records ; and the seventh, 
now in the printers' hands, will resume the Boston volumes. 

The Roxbury book here printed, has, we believe, been 
taken apart and re-arranged, so that it is no longer possible* 
to say when the record of grants was commenced. Cer- 
tainly the first entry on our first page, dated in 1639, is not 
in the same handwriting as the entries paged 1-86, on our 
pages' 12-51. These entries were all by the same hand, 
and probably the following order explains them : 

Roxbury Town Records Vol. i. p. 9. w Town order for 
makeing new transcript." 

" The town boock wherin most mens lands being recorded 
[by] gods prouidence being burned, therby much dammedg

town within three months soe as this may be accumplished 
for the pshon of darnrnedg as afore sayd. and allsoe to record 
hieaways and other town preuilidges. 17. of 11. 1652. 

JOHN JOHNSON 
WILLIAM PARKE 
ISAK MORILL 
ED. DENYSON 
GRIFFEN CRAFT." 

These signatures are not autographs, but a comparison 
with other pages leads us to the conviction, that this tran- 
script, or book of possessions, was written by Edward Den- 
ison at that time. 

The other items in the book are dated, and are of the 
miscellaneous nature generally to be found in old books of 
town records. 

As this particular volume would not make a book of the 
size of others in this series of reports, the commissioners 
searched for material to accompany it. The first volume of 
town records is in proper form for printing by itself, and it 
seemed unwise to divide it so as to fill out this book. It 
was, however, believed, that the Records of the First Church 
in Roxbury were of so conspicuous interest and value as to 
warrant their selection for printing. Not only are they of 
interest as being largely the work of that most famous of 
our divines, the Rev. John Eliot, but they contain many 
pages of entries of general interest. Mr. Eliot and his col- 
league, the Rev. Samuel Danforth, happily conceived the 
idea of entering in this volume a summary of public events, 
year by year. As public records, therefore, they will be 
valued by many who have no special interest in the doings 
of the settlers at Roxbury. 

Portions of this record hare been printed already. In 
1850, the late J. Wingate Thornton, Esq., published a num- 
ber of articles, in a Roxbury newspaper, concerning the 
early settlers. A portion of the church record was thus 
printed, and fifty copies of these essays were issued in book 
form. During the past two years the whole of the public 
record of Eliot and Danforth has appeared in the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register, with elabo- 
rate notes by William B. Trask, Esq. But even this pub- 
licity is but partial, and the expense to a collector would be 
considerable. The greater part of the volume, however, is 
now printed for the first time, and all of the volume, except 
a very few pages, is here given. 



RECORD COMMISSIONERS' REPORT. v 

The following description of the venerable manuscript 
volume will show exactly what has been done with it. It 
will be noticed that we have altered the arrangement in one 
or two points, in order to make the whole more systematic. 
Thus, at the end, the baptisms and burials, from 1641 to 
1688, were written in double columns on each page, under 
the heading of each year. As we could not print these 
entries in this form, it seemed best to print all the baptisms 
in chronological order, and then to treat the burials in the 
same way. 

In the manuscript we find first three leaves, on one of 
which there is some poetry on Abigail Tomson, and on two 
of the others some church votes, etc., in 1658. The pagina- 
tion then begins regularly, but we have not inserted it in the 
text, as many of the pages have but a few names on each. 
Probably Mr. Eiliot intended to leave room after each name 
for further notes. On p. 56 (our printed page 86) the en- 
tries begin to be more in detail. With page 70 (our page 
"00) these entries end, and the lists of admissions begin, con- 
tinuing through p, 81 (our p. 111). Pp. 82, 3, 4 are blank. 
On p. 85 is the list of five names printed by us on p. 111. 
P. 86 is blank. 

Pp. 87-89 are entries of admission from 1753, printed 
on pp. 111-114. Pp. 91-96, blank. 

Pp. 97-110 are baptisms from 1751-1766 ; these we have 
transferred to their proper place, and print on pp. 147-162. 

Pp. 111-124 contain votes of the church from 1751-1774, 
and are not printed, as they contain nothing of interest- to the 
public. Pp. 125-138, blank. 

Pp. 139-144, baptisms resumed, 1768, etc. ; printed by us, 
pp. 162-169. 

Pp. 145-242, blank ; pp. 243-4, two pages of accounts 
A.D. 1672-7. 

Pp. 245-249, Eliot's general records, printed on pp. 187- 
191 ; p. 250, the note on William Curtis. 

Pp. 251-262, Danforth's records, printed on pp. 196-212. 
Pp. 262-268, Eliot's records, printed on pp. 191-196. 

P. 269, Amos Adams' memorandum on our pp. 169-170, 
ending with the entry of Dr. Porter's death in 1833. Pp. 270- 
297, blank; p. 298, notes about a legacy; pp. 299-302 are 
wanting, probably by error in numbering the pages. P. 303, 
note of a legacy ; pp. 304-6, blank. Pp. 307-314, accounts, 
A.D. 1759-1774, mostly about Col. Lamb's bequest. Pp. 
315-6, blank ; pp. 317-18, accounts of 1759. Pp. 319-464, 
blank. 

With page 465 begin 34 pages not numbered, of baptisms 
and burials, written in double columns. We print the bap- 



vi CITY DOCUMENT No. 114. 

tisms, 1641-1688, on pp. 114-142, and the burials for the 
.same period on pp. 170-187. 

Then come 5 pages of persons owning the covenant, 1700- 
1750, printed on pp. 143-146 ; then the note by Rev. O. 
Peabody, printed on p. 146 ; then 7 pages blank ; then 
pages numbered 519-525, blank; lastly, p. 526, Index. 

We have been thus particular in describing the contents of 
the volume, as it was found inexpedient to print it continu- 
ously. Like all such books, entries were made at random, 
and it seemed best, in printing, to correct the arrangement. 
If the present members of the church will print the few 
pages of church votes and accounts, they can feel sure that 
this invaluable record will be certain of preservation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM H. WHITMORE, 
WILLIAM S. APPLETON, 

Record Commissioner*.

again into the Church & recomnrl to Chh at Hampton

1643 m 8. Goodwife Webb reconciled to the Chh. 

1 1643, month 8 day 29. Robert Potter was excomvnicate, his 
sins w r first in the tims of m ris Hutchinson, w n divers of o r Church 
w r seduced to familesme & scizme, he was of theire side & com- 
pany, & so fild w th them as y* he departed to the Ila'd rath r then 
would forsake them, & being there he refused to heare the church 
who had lovingly sent after him : secondly for that he was now 
tossed w th oth r winds of new doctrine forsakeing the Hand & joyn- 
ing w th Gorton & y* not only in his heresys but also in his hereti- 
call blaspheamous & rep'chfull writings and publikly owned them in 
Court, & maide himselfe guilty of all those wicked ways : 

There happened (by Gods p'vidence) a dreadful example of God's 
judgment this yeare vpon one Willia Frankling who belonged to 
Boston towne, & take M r Ting his farme above muddy river be- 
longing to Boston ; But he spent his sab: at o r towne being neerer ; 
& after a season desired to joyne to o r church: & had app' bation so 
to doe, & was 'received. 

But Satan p'sently did enter into him & having a boy whom he 
had bought some j'ears time & p'ving sick & naughty ; alter he 
was joyned to the church he grew more passionate, cruel & feirce 
against him, though he had bene sharpe afore, yet vuknowne or 
vndisposed to vs, but now he grew out-raigeous, so y i by sundry 
cruel strips & oth r kind of ill vseage the boy dyed vnder his rigor- 
ous hand, and y 4 (by a strange p'vidence of God &his own folly) at 
Boston, as if God ment to bring him on the stage for an example 
to all oth's for w ch sin that day mouth y i he was admitted he was 
excomunicated & though much paines were taken to have brought 
him to repentance & reconciliation to the church, yet all in vaine 
he p'testing p'tly to deny & p'tly to mine his cruel actions towards 
the boy so y 1 in y* estate .he was executed at Boston as publick 
records will show.

1644. A strange p'vidence of God fell out at Boston where a 
peece of Iron in a dung cart, one was smote into the head & brains 
of the daughter of Jakob Eliot deakon of the Church & brought 
forth some of the braines ; and after more of the braines came forth, 
& yet the Lord cured the child, the braines lying next the skin in 
that place. 

Soon after that one william Curtis of Roxbury was cast off fro m 
a cart of loggs vnto the ground w th such violence, y* his head & one 
side of his face were bruised, blood gushed out of his eare, his braine 
was shaken, he senseless divers days, yet by degres thro' Gods 
mercy he recovered his senses, yet his cheeke drawne awry & p'alitik, 
but in a quarter of a yeare, lie was pretty well recovered, to the 
wonder of all men. 

1645. Toward the end of the first month call'd march ; there 
happened (by Gods p'vidence) a very dreadfull fire in Roxbury 
streete ; none knoweth how it was kindled, but being a feirce wind, 
it suddenly p' vailed. And in this mans house was a good p't of 
the Countrys magazine of powder of 17 or 18 barrels ; w ch made the 
people, y* none durst come to save the house or goods till y* none 
durst come to save the house or goods till y* was blowen vp, & by 
that time the fire had taken the barnes & outhousing (w ch were 
many & great) so y* none were saved. 

In this fire were strang p'servations of Gods p'vidence to the 
neighbors & towne, for the wind at first stood to cary the fire to 
othi r houses ; but suddenly turned & cary edit fro' all other houses ; 
only carying it to the barns and out housing thereby. & it was a 
feirce wind, & thereby drove the vehement heat fro' the neighbour 
houses, w ch in a calmer time would by the x'y lieate neve bene set 
on fire. 

But above all the p'servation of all people fro* hurt & othe r houses 
fro' fire at the blowing vp of the powder many being in greate 
danger yet none hurt, & sundry houses set on fire by the blow & 
yet all quenched, through Gods rich mercy in Christ. 

1645. about the 16 th of 5* month was this anagra sent to m r 
Dudley -then Govno r by some namelesse author. 

Thomas Dudley 
ah ! old, must dye 

A deaths head on your hand you neede not weare 
a dying head you on your shoulders beare 
you need not one to minde you, you must dye 
you in your name may spell mortalitye 
younge men may dye, but old men these dye must

t'will not be long before you turne to dust, 
before you turn e to dust ! ah! must; old! dye! 
what shall younge doe, when old in dust doe lye? 
when old in dust lye, what N. England doe? 
when old in dust doe lye, its' best dye too. 

This yeare we. had sundry strange & p'digeous signes, a storme 
of haile at Boston w r the stones were as big or bigger than muskett 
bullets, and fell terribly. 

The week after the like was at Dedha:', w r some were in fash'on 
like cross barr canon shott, oth" like musket bullets, there was 



ROXBURY CHURCH RECORDS. 189 

also a feirce hirricane at Brantree soone after. The Narragansets 
resolved a warr y* yeare, but through mercy a peace was made. 

Daulny y* yeare tooke La Tours Fort. 

M r Hankins & anoth r ship, great vessels both cast away at 
Spaine. The country suffered many losses at sea, at least 10000 
in lesse then 2 years besids many lives, yea some think twenty, or 
thirty thousand pound losse. 

This winter we had much sicknesse at Roxbury & greater mor- 
tality then euer we had afore, in so short a time, 5 dyed in 8 days 
& more followed, as appeareth in the record y r off ; W Curtis who 
had that dreadful fall the year afore, excommun'd but upon his 
repentance received again. Yet this mercy the Lord shewed N.E. 
this yeare, y* the Iron w r ks were brought to p'fection & tryall 
p'veing excellent well. 

This yeare y r was also a great scarcity of wine in the winter, w ch 
had not so beoe of 3 yeares afore, it Was a gracious awakening the 
land, to conside 1 " of the excesse y' hath here bene, that way. 

1646. This yeare arose a great disturbance in the country by 
such as are called the Petitioners a trouble raised by Jesuited 
agents to molest the peace of the churches & Com. w. 

Gorton found favor in England, haveingnone to informe against 
him what he was, but M r Winslow was sent over whom the Lord 
direct, protect, & prosper. 

A synod was held this yeare at Cambridg, & adjourned to the 
sumer following, after some questions were discussed. 

This yeare about the end of the 5 l month, we had a very strang 
hand of God vpon vs, y* vpon a suddaine, innumerable arrays of 
Catterpillers filled the Country all over all the English plantations, 
w ch devoured some whole meadows of grasse, & greatly devoured 
barly, being the most greene & tender corne, eating off all the 
blades & beards, but left the Corne, only many ears they quite eat 
of by by ting the greene straw asunder below the eare, so y e barly 
was generally halfe spoyled, likewise they much hurt wheat, by 
eating the blads off, but wheate had the lesse hurt because it was 
a little forwarder then barly, & so harder, & dryer, & they the 
lesse medled w th it. As for rie, it was so hard and neere'ripe y* 
they touched it not, but above all graines they devoured Sylly oats. 
And in some places they fell vpon Indian Corne, & quite devoured 
it, in other places they touched it not ; they would goe crosse high- 
ways by 1000. much prayer there was made to God about it, w th 
fasting in divers places : & the Lord heard, & on a suddaine tooke 
y m all away againe in all p ts of the country, to the wonderment of 
all men ; it was of the Lord for it was done suddainely. 

This winter was one o* mildest y* ever we had, no snow all 
winter long, nor sharp weath r , but they had long floods at Conec- 
ticot, w ch was much spoyle to y r corne, in the medows ; we never 
had a bad day to goe p r ch to the Indians all this winter, praised be 
the Lord. 

1647. This spring we of Roxbury w th some of Dorcheser ven- 
tured to sea in a small vessell but the master wanted sufficient 
experience, & the vessel overmasted & was over-sett, & many 
weeks after came whole allmost, ashore to shew the error of men 



190 CITY DOCUMENT No. 114. 

to goe to sea so rawly : many m r cast away in her, m ri8 stoughtons 
eldest sonne, m r Howards Eldest sonne w th many others. 

This spring we heard p'bable tidings of New haven ship w ch 
either was over sett, or foudered at sea, she was too tendersided, 
& therefore its to be feared she over sett, a very sad blow was y* 
to N. E. to loose so many at once, of y* to N. E. to loose so many 
at once, of y* note & worth. 

At the time appoynted the Synod assembled. But at that time 
the hand of the Lord was very strang among vs, by sickness ; it 
being ah extreame hot time by thunder weather & vnwholsome. 

At the begining "of wc ch weath r , we had a great thunder storme 
in the night- w ch at Dorchester slew 3 oxen in the feild, w th out any 
remarkable signe, what it was y* killed them. 

Fro 3'* time forward a great sicknesse epidemical, did the Lord 
lay vpon vs, so y e the greatest p* of a towne was sick at one, whole 
familys sick young & old, scarce any escaping English or Indian. 

The maner of thesickneese was a very depe-cold, w th some tinct- 
ure of a feaver, & full of malignity, & very dangerous if not well 
regarded, by keeping a low diet ; the body solluble, warme, sweat- 
ing, &c: at w ch time of visitation, blessed m ris Winthrop the 
Govno wife dyed. Also a lusty strong woman of Boston M rU 
Stodder ; fondly eat greene peaches, w ch set her to so vyolent a 
vomiting as y* it burst he-r intralls, as its thought, & so she dyed. 

Gods rods are teaching o r epidemical sicknesse of colds, doth 
rightly by a' divine hand tell the churches what o r epidemical spr'l 
disease is. Lord help vs to see it, & to have such colds in the 
height of the heat of suiner, shews vs, y* in the height of the means 
of grace, peace, liberty of ordinances &c. yet may we then fall 
into malignant & mortal colds, apostacys, & coolings, &c. This 
visitation of God was exceeding strange, it was suddaine, & geu- 
erall : as if the Lord had imediatly sent forth an angel, not w th a 
sword to kill, but w th a rod to chastize ; & he sraot all, good & bad, 
old & young, or as if there were a generall infection of the aer ; 
w ch went fro North to South by degrees infect'g all, yea such as 
were on the seas neere o r Coasts were so infected, & smitten : And 
this is remarkable, y l though few dyed yet some did ; and. generally 
those y* dyed were of o r choycest flowers, & most p'cious saints 
among oth r8 y* were then taken to rest, was yt worthy & blessed 
light M r Hooker, who haveing a cold & p r ched twice on the Sab: 
(M r Stone not being at home) and minis tred both the sac: the Ld s 
supper in the forenoone, & Baptism in the afternoone, he was so 
over spent, & his spirits sunk, y' he never could recover them 
againe. 

God so graciously p'sp'ed m r Winslows indeavours in England, 
against Gorton & his complices y e all theire great hopes were 
dashed ; & they among vs, a little pulled in theire heads, & held 
theire peace. 

About the end of the 10* month of ^ this yeare were very many 
colds againe among the people, though not so generall, nor so 
deepely seasing vpon theire spirits, as in the sumer time it was. 

This winter we had a gracious p'vidence of God befell two 
brothers Edward & Georg Dennison, who had been pryude incen- 



ROXBURY CHURCH RECORDS. 191 

diarys of some trobls among us, & full of distemp', and disaffec- 
tion, but the Lord left them to open and shameful] drunkennesse 
at Boston : espec'. edward. W ch did so greatly humble them both 
y* though George (being a memb r ) was excomvnicated, yet in a 
short time was taken in againe. And Edward humbling himselfe 
so effectually y* he was also speedyly received in to the Church, 
this is the tryvmph of grace, to magnify grace by sinne. 

This sumer we had notice of a very great & dismal storme at 
Newfound Land w ch 

[The remarks end thus abruptly on page 249. The following 
pages of the Roxbury Church Records, from 251 to the com- 
mencement of page 262, are taken up by the Register of Mr.

for a day of thanksgiving. AT Mather went to the Gover 1 to 



194 CITY DOCUMENT No. 114. 

p'mote the motion of a fast, but be refused, & would rather have 
a day of thanksgiving. M r Hubbard of Ipswich coueured w th 
the p'p'cio", whereupon the elders p'esent thought it necessary, y* 
some p'ticulnr Churches should call a fast especially because now 
o r Army to Coneticot w r on y r inarch, & Conecticot Array to meet 
y m . M r Mather was willing to call a fast in his Church & being 
next Sab before he should speak w th the Church, we agreed y* the 
4 4 day come seavennight, w ch was the 21 day of y e 4 4 month should 
be the day of fasting and prayre, accordingly y* church appoynted y* 
day. 

on boston lecture day following which was the 15 day of this

parents live, had bene at Ipswich. & in the names of m r Cobbet & 
m r shephard did earnest p re ssethe eld r s y r p r seut, to move authority 
for a day of thanksgiving, we discoursed the po}'nt, we thought y* 
God called to fasting & prayre but we could joyne w th o r brethren 
in a day of thanksgiving, but for the p r sent, because the North 
church had all ready appoynted next 4* day to be a day of fasting 
& prayre, we would stay untill next 5* day, the day after the fast, 
& y n we will consider of moving for a day of thanksgiving, & con- 
sider what causes to p'pound, y r answ r we desired m r Foster to re- 
turne to m r Shepard. 

10 day some captive women & children w r set downe, shipped to 
be sold for slaves. 

12 day capt Tom having rendered himself, was brought downe, 
a great rage was against him. 

14 day I was at the Court, called to be there. Cowel & oth 
testified y ei saw him at Sudbury fight, he denyed and saith he was 
y n sick & nev. ingaged ags* the English, only when y ei were sur- 
prized by the enemie a devil put it into his hd. to be willing to goe 
w th ym i <novv i n g the rage of the English. 

[1676 mo. 4] 15 day I visited the p r soners, everything looketh 
w 01 a sad face. God frowneth. 

19 day Capt Tom was tryed on his life, but I had not the least 
knowledg of it, & yTore was not p r sent, he was condemed, upon 
Cowells oath, & the others. 

20 day I went to the p r son to comfort y m I dealt faithfully w th 
him, to confesse if w r true, w r off he is accused & for w ch he is con- 
demned. I believe he sayth the truth. 

The same 20 day was Court at charlstowne, thither the Gov'no* 
went to keepe Court, because they want magistrates in y e county 
two being dead, & a 3 d left out. 

There y ei did appoynt the day of thanksgiving, to be held the 5* 
day seavennight after, viz. on the 29* of this month. 

21 day was the fast at the North church, where we saw a mighty 
p T senc & assistanc of the spirit of grace. m r Allins prayre & m r 
Math's prayre & sermon w" sad p'phesys to sick sick new Eng- 
land. 

afore the worship began I visited to p'soners & after it was done, 
I went to the Gov'no r & intreated y 1 Capt Tom might have liberty 
to p've y' he was sick at the time w n the fight was at Sudbury, & 
y' he was not their, it might not be, but he did exp re sse how bad a

up hand against the English, nor was I at sndbury. only I was

month 9, day 26 the x'n b ra in Dublin in Ireland sent a gracious 
gift of charity to relive such as suffered in o r late warr, the ship 
arrived y* day at night the master was at Boston on the Sabboth. 

day 27. next morning a dreadtull fire broke forth in Boston, 
w ch consumed many dwelling houses & many rich shops & ware- 
houses, & the north meeting house, in 2 hou r s time, by reason of a 
v r y feirce wind, the history w r off I leave to oth r s to describe, but 
this is observable y* so much p'visions was consumed, & so many 
pore aded to such as were made pore by the war, y* (though the 
gift was only dispenced according as it was given to such as w r 
made pore by the warr) yet the seasonablenesse of their charity was 
very much magnifyed, and a crowne of beauty was set upon the 
head of their charity thereby. 

So soone as we condescended to impr've o r praying Indians in 
the warr, fro y* day forward we allwayes p'sp'd untill God pleased 
to teare the rod in peeces, p'ly by conquest, p tly by theire sicknesse 
& death, & hath brought us peace, praised be his name. But no 
sooner was y* rod broken, p'sently the Northeastern warr broke 
forth the history whereoff I leave to others to relate. 

God also drew forth anoth r rod upon o r backs in epidemical sick- 
nesse w ch tooke away mau3 T of us. And yet for all this it is the 
frequent complaint of many wise & godly y 1 litle reformation is to 
be scene of o r cheife wrath p'vokiug sins, as pride, covetousnesse, 
auimositys, p'sonal neglecte of gospeliziug o r youth, & of gospeliz- 
ing of the Indians &c. drinking houses multiplyed, not lessened, 
quakers openly tolerated. 

1677, month 2, about the 10* of this month Boston was much in- 
dangered, by a chimny going on fire, in a very windy day, but the 
Lord did succeed the iudeavors of men, so y* it was quenched, 
about the middle of this month a blazing star appeared in the east. 

The Indian war now about to finish, wherein the praying Indians 
had so eminent an interest in the recording whereoff I thought not 
my selfc so fitting. I desisted fro this work of recording p'ticular 
matters, & knowing y' it was comited to oth r s I declined it, but 
now on 2 d thought I blame my selfe for it, Lord p'don all my 
many omissions, the successe of o r Indians was highly accepted 
w th the souldiers, & y ei now welcomed where ev r y ei met y m y ci had

any they had for rumb or any strong drink ; so drunkenesse in 
creased & quarreling fighting & were the sad effects of strong 
drink. Praying to God was quenched, the younger generation 
being debauched by it, and the good old generation of the first 
beginers gathered home by death. So y* Satan imp'ved y s op'tun- 
ity to defile, debase, & bring into contempt the whole work of 
praying to God. a great apostasy defiled us. And yet through 
grace some stood and doe stand, and the work is on foot to this day, 
praised be the Lord, when the Indians were hurried away to an 
Iland at half an hou r s warning, pore soules in terror y ei left theire 
goods, books, bibles, only some few caryed y r bibles, the rest were 
spoyled & lost. So y* w n the wares w r finished, & y ci returned to 
y r places y ei w r greatly impov'ished, but y ei especially bewailed y r 
want of Bibles, y 8 made me meditate upon a 2 d imp r ssion of o* 
Bible, & accordingly tooke pains to revise the first edition. I also 
intreated m r John Cotton to help in y* work, he having obtained 
some ability so to doe. he read over the whole bible, & whatever 
doubts he had, he writ y m downe in order, & gave y ra to me, to try 
y m & file y m over among o r Indians. I obtained the favor to re- 
print the New testam 4 & psalmes, but I met w th much obstruction 
for reprinting the old testam', yet by prayre to God, Patience & 
intreatye, I at last obteined y' also, praised be the Lord. 



RECORDS OF REV. SAMUEL DANFORTH. 

[NOTE. Rev. Samuel Danforth, M.A., second son of Nicholas Danforth., 
of Cambridge, Mass., was born in Framingham, co. of Suffolk, England, in 
September, 1G26. He came to New England with his father, in 1634, his 
mother having died when the son was three years old. He graduated at 
Harvard College in 1643, in the same class with the Rev. Samuel Mather, son 
of the Rev. Richard Mather, of Dorchester. He was made a freeman in 1647, 
and on the 24th of September, 1650, was ordained as colleague to the Rev. 
John Eliot, pastor of the First Church in Roxbury. Mr Danforth married 
Mary Wilson, daughter of the Rev. John Wilson, of Boston, Nov. 5, 1651. 
They had twelve children, two of whom were ministers of the gospel, John, 
who settled at Dorchester, and Samuel at Taunton. Rev. Samuel Danforth, 
the father, in addition to his services as a minister, was of some note as an 
astronomer, mathematician, and poet. For several years he published 
almanacs. John Farmer states that he had seen "those from 1646 to 1649, 
inclusive," and that " some of them are valuable for the chronological tables 
at the end." The ministry of Mr. Danforth continued twenty-four years. He 
died Nov. 19, 1674, at the age of 48. His colleague Eliot, who outlived him 
more than fifteen years, said, " My Brother Danforth made the most glorious 
End that ever I saw!" The widow of Mr. Danforth married Joseph Rock, 
or Ruck, of Boston, where she died, Sept. 13, 1713, in the eighty-first year of 
her. age. See REGISTER, vii. 317; American Quarterly Register, viii. 135-
