worn Constable of the plantations at Connecticut till some other be chosen. Mass. Col. Rec., i. 159. But the general exodus was several months later. Under date of May 31, 1636, Winthrop says: Mr. Hooker, pastor of the church of New Town, and the most of his congregation, went to Connecticut. His wife was carried in a horse-litter; and they drove one hundred and sixty cattle, and fed of their milk by the way. Savage's Winthrop, i. 187. Their possessions in New Town were purchased by Mr. Shepard and his friends, who opportunely arrived in the autumn of 1635 and the following spring and summer. The reasons assigned for this removal seem insufficient to justify it; or, at the least, insufficient to require it. As to their inability to maintain their ministers, it should be observed that at the same session when this reason was alleged, New Town was rated as high as any other town in the colony. Mass. Col. Rec., i. 129. The real want of accommodation for cattle and for an addit

Immediately after the arrival of Mr. Shepard's company, they became prominent in municipal affairs, although the larger part of Mr. Hooker's company did not remove until six months afterwards. I quote again from the Town Records:— Nov. 23, 1635. At a general meeting of the whole t
's letter was published in Albro's Life of Thomas Shepard, 1847; but his copy contained several mistated lands here. There is no evidence that Mr. Shepard or his people had any jealousy, such as somte on their predecessors. On the contrary, Mr. Shepard was a prominent member of the religious parug. 30, 1637, and began with prayer made by Mr. Shepard. Mr. Bulkeley of Concord, and Mr. Hooker, i. 237-240. assembled at Cambridge, whereof Mr. Shepard was no small part, most happily crushed them all. The vigilancy of Mr. Shepard was blessed, not only for the preservation of his own congregat, who were made such by their sitting under Mr. Shepard's ministry. Magnalia, B. III., ch. v., § 12. Possibly, however, this vigilancy of Mr. Shepard, and this faithfulness of his congregation, thr the fifth Reason for removing, entered by Mr. Shepard on the fly-leaf of one of his manuscript bo Mr. Harlakenden was peculiarly grievous to Mr. Shepard, who had been protected by him in England, [5 more...]

n and Famalistical opinions then raised. Mather's Magnalia, Book III., ch. v., § 12. So violent became the controversy, and so great was the apparent danger of civil strife, that many of the heretical party, in Boston, Salem, Newbury, Roxbury, Ipswich, and Charlestown, were disarmed. Mass. Col. Rec., i. 211, 212. The Cambridge church, however, seems to have escaped infection; and none of its members were included among the disaffected and supposed dangerous class. The vigilancy of Mr. Shepard was blessed ..... for the preservation of his own congregation from the rot of these opinions. Magnalia, ut sup. Nearly twenty years later, his successor, Mr. Mitchell, was sorely tried by the defection of President Dunster from the established faith, as related in chapter XVI. Great excitement followed, both in church and in state; and, as Dunster would neither renounce nor conceal his opposition to infant baptism, he was removed from office as head of the College (designed to be

Rec., i. 190. All these exhibited a military spirit. Captain Cooke was one of the earliest members of the Ancient and Honorable Artillerymoved to Connecticut, where, as well as here, he was an active and useful civil officer. Both here and in Connecticut he was a Deputy in the General Court. Ensign Shepard returned to England with Captain Cooke, being excused by the General Court in October, 1645, from further attendance as a member, being to go for England.
