Chapter 6: ecclesiastical history. The history of their church, in many of our earliest New England towns, was almost the history of their settlement. So early as 1634, our fathers procured a preacher, Mr. James Noyes, afterwards minister of Newbury. He was born in England in 1608, educated at Oxford, came to Boston in 1634, and was immediately called to preach at Mistic, which he did for nearly one year. He was much beloved and respected,--a very holy and heavenly-minded man. He was a man of singular qualifications, a reaching and ready apprehension, and a most profound judgment. He was courageous in dangers, and still apt to believe the best, and made fair weather in a storm. After he left Medford, the inhabitants received religious instructions from Rev. Mr. Wilson and Rev. Mr. Phillips; for, in the tax for the support of these gentlemen, Medford paid its share assessed by the General Court. These preachers were paid by six towns, and doubtless considered Medford as be
called doctor in the town records, May, 1724. The college at that time had not commenced the giving of medical degrees. He is called the first physician of Medford. During a short residence with his townsman and relative, Rev. John Tufts, at Newbury, he connected himself with the church there, and was recommended by that church to the one in Medford, May, 1734. To show how much he labored, how well he succeeded, and how truly he was loved, we quote here the following brief and discriminahe Annual Thanksgiving1794 On the Day of the National Thanksgiving1795 On the Death of a Child, killed by a Gun1797 Before the Annual Convention of the Congregational Ministers of Massachusetts1798 At the Ordination of Rev.
