of New England During the period embraced in the preceding chapter, very important events occurred in England. The ecclesiastical yoke which the Fathers of New England were unable to bear was broken, and the people enjoyed comparative religious freedom. The civil government also was overturned and established on new foundations. King Charles the First was beheaded Jan. 30, 1649, and the House of Lords was soon afterwards suppressed. For a few years, a Parliament consisting of a single House, and the army under the command of Cromwell, as chief general, exercised a joint, or perhaps rather antagonistic, supremacy, until Dec. 16, 1653, when Cromwell, with the title of Protector, grasped the reins of government, which he held with a firm hand so long as he lived. After this Revolution in England, and as one of its consequences, the inhabitants of Cambridge were once more tempted to remove. Cromwell had been very desirous of drawing off the New Englanders to people Ireland after
n, to make answer to Mr. John Vassall, Representative of Cambridge, who complained of sundry insults received from them. Dec. 10, Mr. Samuel Gookin appeared, and the case was fully examined. Then the question was put, whether it appears to this House that an attachment being served on Mr. John Vassall's estate on the 18th of November last is a breach of the privileges of the members of this House. It passed in the negative. But this was not the end. December 18, 1740, A petition of Mr. John Hovey of Cambridge, praying that this House would order Mr. John Vassall, the member of Cambridge, to refund his expenses occasioned by an unjust and groundless complaint of said Mr. Vassall, particularly mentioned in said petition, for the reasons exhibited,— read, and in answer thereto, ordered, that the said John Vassall pay to the petitioner, the said John Hovey, the sum of ten pounds, in full recompense for his time and expense occasioned by said complaint. An epidemic occasioned grea
ghts and privileges. By the printed Journal of the House of Representatives, it appears that on the 11th of June, 1767, it was ordered, that the debates in this House be open, and that a gallery be erected on the westerly side of this room for the accommodation of such persons as shall be inclined to attend the same: —provided, ough it might be a mistaken one. W. Brattle. The Governor having dissolved the House of Representatives in June, writs were issued for the election of a new House, to assemble at Salem on the 5th of October. Meantime, the Council elected by the former House had been superseded by the Mandamus Council. Having already compeldge, May 27, 1776, it was unanimously voted, that whereas in the late House of Representatives of this colony, 10 May 1776, it was resolved, as the opinion of that House, that the inhabitants of each town in this Colony ought, in full town-meeting warned for that purpose, to advise the person or persons who shall be chosen to repre
. The Council was applied to, to aid in the procurement of quarters from the citizens for the officers; nor was this an easy task. The families of the citizens generally wanting the room in their respective houses rendered it difficult to obtain so many quarters as were necessary for so great a number, and extended the limits of the parole very considerably. Heath's Memoirs, p. 134 Gen. Burgoyne had quarters assigned to him in the Borland House, Gen. Riedesel in the Lechmere (or Sewall) House, and others elsewhere. The soldiers occupied barracks on Prospect and Winter Hills. Between 11 and 12 o'clock on the 5th of April, 1778, General Burgoyne left Cambridge for Rhode Island; and on the 15th a division of the Convention troops marched for Rutland, under escort of a detachment of militia, commanded by Major Read. Ibid., pp. 161, 162. The remainder of the Convention troops marched for Virginia, on the 10th and 11th of November, 1778, Ibid., p. 198. after having been priso
