he fleet of emigrants in 1630. The selection was partially made Dec. 21, 1630, and definitely determined Dec. 28, 1630. Houses were erected here in 1631 by Thomas Dudley, Deputy Governor, and by a few others. It was ordered by the Governor and Assistants, Feb. 3, 1631-2, that there should be three scoore pounds levyed out of the several plantations within the lymitts of this pattent towards the makeing of a pallysadoe aboute the newe towne. Mass. Col. Rec., i. 93. Dr. Holmes, writing in 1800 (Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., VII. 9), says: This fortification was actually made; and the fosse which was then dug around the town is, in some places, visible to this day. It commenced at Brick Wharf (originally called Windmill Hill) and ran along the northern side of the present Common in Cambridge, and through what was then a thicket, but now constitutes a part of the cultivated grounds of Mr. Nathaniel Jarvis; beyond which it cannot be distinctly traced. Cambridge was at first called The New
The Assistants had even voted, Oct. 3, 1632, It is thought, by general consent, that Boston is the fittest place for public meetings of any place in the Bay. Yet when Dudley was elected Governor, in May, 1634, the courts, both general and particular, were transferred to New Town, and were there held exclusively until May, 1636. Then they returned to Boston; then to New Town again in April, 1637, until September, 1638, when they became permanently fixed at Boston. Dr. Holmes, writing in 1800, says, In some of the first years, the annual election of the Governor and Magistrates of the Colony was holden in this town. The people, on these occasions, assembled under an oak tree, which stood on the northerly side of the Common in Cambridge, a little west of the road leading to Lexington. The stump of it was dug up not many years since. —Coll. Mass. Hist. Soc., VII. 9. This was probably the tree mentioned in a note to Hutchinson's Hist. Mass., i. 61: At the election in 1637, the p

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 be transported in the said ship to New England aforesaid, with as much speed as wind and weather will per
his son Thomas M. Davis, for the manufacture of fancy soap. Scott & Hayden erected a store on the lot next westerly from the store-lot of Vose & Makepeace, before 1800. Besides these, Stanton Parker erected a store and shed on the northerly side of Main Street, the precise location not known, before Nov. 11, 1794. Asaph Harlow was daughter of Mr. Foster and niece of Mr. Craigie. Mr. Cabot took possession of the estate under the mortgage from Johnson, having obtained judgment therefor in 1800, and sold the same to Samuel Parkman of Boston, Aug. 26, 1803. Parkman conveyed to Craigie all his rights in the whole estate, by deed dated June 8, 1806, and on the town was sadly shorn of its already diminished proportions by the incorporation of its second and third parishes into separate towns.

lier than the one then in use. Its location is not certainly known, yet it is indicated with some degree of probability by two circumstances: (1.) The lot owned by John Pratt in 1635, was situated on the southerly side of Brattle Street, and on both sides of Hilliard Street. (2.) The common pales are supposed to denote the stockade which was erected in 1632, nearly, if not precisely in the line of the present Ash Street, and of which Dr. Holmes says traces existed when he wrote his History in 1800. It is not unreasonable then to suppose that the old burying-place without the common pales may have been at or near the westerly corner of Brattle and Ash streets, in the grounds now owned by Samuel Batchelder, Esq. A hundred years after the second burial-place was ordered to be paled in, the town enclosed it by a substantial stone wall, instead of the old wooden fence, or pales. The corporation of Harvard College contributed one sixth part of the expense, as appears by their Records un

ng a new Parsonage-house, provided the sum of one hundred and thirty pounds of the said money be procured by the sale of town, propriety, or ministry lands in said town, as may be thought most proper to be disposed of for said use. Accordingly, the church farm in Lexington was sold, and so much as was not appropriated for the Parsonage was invested in a permanent fund. The records do not distinctly indicate whether the Parsonage was wholly or only partly rebuilt. But Dr. Holmes, writing in 1800, says, All the ministers, since Mr. Mitchell, have resided at the Parsonage. The front part of the present house, at the Parsonage, was built in 1720. Mass. Hist. Coll., VII. 30. The whole house was taken down in 1843. The congregation seems to have soon increased, demanding additional room; and it was voted, Aug. 1, 1718, that a new upper gallery in our meeting-house over the women, agreeable to the gallery over the men, be erected and built, provided the corporation of Harvard Colleg
