books, and records, and archives, for their uniform courtesy and kindness. I have also obtained many genealogical details from the Church Record of Baptisms and Burials, from Probate Records and Files, from inscriptions on gravestones, and from funeral sermons, and newspapers. After the expenditure of much time and labor, however, I am conscious of many deficiencies. It will be seen that the Genealogical Register is chiefly confined to the families who dwelt in Cambridge before the year 1700,--the descendants of such as remained here being traced down to a recent period. A very few families are included who became residents at a later date; but these form the exception, not the rule. So also in regard to the History, comparatively few recent events are mentioned. It would be impracticable, in a single volume, to include with our ancient annals everything which those who are now living have witnessed, and to trace the genealogy of all our nearly fifty thousand inhabitants.

In a letter, dated at Salem, Oct. 10, 1638, Hugh Peter says: We have a printery here, and think to go to work with some special things. —Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., XXXVI. 99. The business of printing was conducted exclusively at Cambridge for nearly half a century, during which time the Indian Bible was printed; after about the year 1700, very little if any work of this kind was performed here (except by Samuel Hall in 1775-76), until 1800, when a printing press was established by William Hilliard.—Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., VII. 19. During the present century, the printers of Cambridge have constantly held a very high comparative rank, for both the quantity and the quality of their work. ship himself and his said wife and children and servants, and the said William Bordman in the same ship, and cause him and themselves to b
It should be added, that these financial transactions indicate a friendly spirit in both parties, the separation having apparently been effected without such sharp controversy as occurred in the case of Newton. In the same spirit, March 11, 1699-1700, the town voted, to give the little meeting-house bell to the Farmers. Voted, that the Selectmen, in the name of the inhabitants, do give their thanks to Capt. Andrew Belcher for the bell for their meeting-house he has given them. Twenty-one yate that Thomas Danforth was Treasurer of Middlesex, before 1657, when he was succeeded by Edward Goffe, who died in 1658, and John Stedman was appointed, who held the office until 1683; Samuel Andrew was his successor and remained in office until 1700, except during the administration of Andros. All these were Cambridge men. In the settlement of the Treasurer's accounts, charges were allowed in 1690, to wit: 52 wolves killed by the English, 20s. per wolf, and one killed by an Indian, 10s., is

contemporaries: Judge Sewall in his Ms. Journal says, Mr. Joseph Eliot comes in and tells me the amazing news of the Rev. Mr. Nathaniel Gookin's being dead: 'tis even as sudden to me as Mr. Oakes' death. He was one of our best ministers, and one of the best friends I had left. The ancient record says, Mr. Nathaniel Gookin, our pastor, departed this life 7 day of August 1692, being the Sabbath day at night, about nine or ten o'clock at night. Elder Clark departed this life 14 January 99 or 1700, being the Sabbath day. Our pastor Mr. Nathaniel Gookin's wife Hannah died 14 day of May 1702, and was buried 16 day of May at the town's charge. The orthography of this record is extraordinarily vicious, and is here corrected. During Mr. Gookin's ministry, the church continued to remember the poor. Contributions were taken for Joseph Graves, in 1683, Moses Eyers, in 1684, and Thomas Gould, in 1685, severally in Turkey slavery; for poor Frenchmen, in 1686, who fled here for shelter; and i
