eacher of Charlestown will not be amiss.
Rev. William Witherell (the name admits of various spellings) came from Maidstone, Kent, Eng., in 1635, under certificate from the mayor of that place, where he had been schoolmaster.
He was bred at Corpus Christi, Cambridge, took his degree of A. B. in 1623, and his master's degree in 1626.
In the ship Hercules, which sailed from Sandwich, there came with Mr. Witherell his wife, three children, and a servant.
Savage adds that, after preaching in Duxbury, he became the minister of the second parish of Scituate in 1645, that several children were born to him in this country, and that he died April 9, 1684.
A recent genealogical note in the Boston Evening Transcript gives his age as twenty-five in 1627, when he married in Canterbury, Eng., Mary Fisher.
That he was for several years the schoolmaster of Charlestown appears from the following:—
11: 12 mo. 1636. Mr. Wetherell was granted a House plott with his cellar, selling his other house
