rt records, was one of the principal gentlemen. He was associated with Mr. Lockwood, May, 1632, to confer with the Court about raising of a public stock; was Deputy or Representative of the New Town, 1634-1637; one of the first Board of Townsmen, 1635; lieutenant of the trainband, 1637, and a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, at its organization in 1639; he probably removed to Hartford in 1639, where he was Selectman and Deputy, and died in 1640. John Kirman removed to Lynn, 1632, and was a Deputy, 1635. Simon Sackett died here before 3d November, 1635, when administration was granted to his widow Isabell Sackett. But this Book of Records was not commenced until 1632, several months after Dudley and Bradstreet performed their promise to build houses at the New Town. Whether more than the before named eight persons, and indeed whether all these resided in the New Town before the end of 1631, I have not found any certain proof. The number of inhabitants in that

Moreover, the New Town had become the seat of government; and, for aught which appears to the contrary, it mig87. 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 st. Mass., i. 43. Trumbull suggests that political rivalry was mingled with clerical jealousy. Of John Haynes he says: In 1635 he was chosen Governor of Massachusetts. He was not considered in any respect inferior to Governor Winthrop. His growing 177-179. The Antinomian controversy, which did not indeed culminate until a year or two later, had commenced as early as 1635; in which Hooker and Cotton espoused opposite sides, and were among the most prominent clerical antagonists. Up to the pe
ady been mentioned in the preceding chapter, that Mr. Hooker and a large proportion of his church removed from New Town in 1635 and 1636; and that Mr. Shepard with another company purchased their houses and lands. Among the reasons which swayed him d William French came in the same ship (The Defence) with him; and the larger portion of those whose names first appear in 1635 and 1636 may safely be regarded as members of his company, to wit:— 1635. Jonas Austin. Removed to Hingham. 1635. Jonas Austin. Removed to Hingham. Thomas Blodgett. Remained here. Thomas Blower. Remained here. William Blumfield. Removed to Hartford. Robert Bradish.

Further, there was chosen and sworn William Andrews, constable for the year following, and until a new be chosen. F
s, through life, by many kind offices in their behalf. This temptation to remove was not kept secret, though no direct reference to it appears on record. In addition to the before named discouragements, which tempted Mr. Shepard and his company to abandon Cambridge, may be mentioned the loss of two most valuable associates, namely John Haynes, who removed to Hartford in 1637, and Roger Harlakenden, who died November 17, 1638, aged 27 years. The former had been Assistant, 1634; Governor, 1635; and Assistant again, 1636, and remained in office up to the time of his removal in the spring of 1637;—the latter was elected Assistant in 1636, at the first election after his arrival, and reelected in 1637 and 1638. One was colonel, and the other lieutenant-colonel, of the military force. Both were conspicuous for moral excellence and mental ability, and each bore a large share of the pecuniary burdens of the public. The death of Mr. Harlakenden was peculiarly grievous to Mr. Shepard, wh
between these two lots, extending from Norfolk Street to Columbia Street, and northerly from one hundred to two hundred feet beyond Austin Street; so that he then owned all the land bordering on the northerly side of Main Street from the point about midway between Hancock and Lee streets to Moore Street, and about fifty acres on the southerly side of Main Street, easterly from its junction with Front Street. The lot of Atherton Hough (or Haugh) in Graves his neck, containing 130 acres in 1635, and embracing all the upland in East Cambridge, was enlarged, by the addition of the lots originally assigned to John Talcott, Matthew Allen, and Mrs. Mussey, before 1642, when it was described as containing 267 acres. Subsequently the 63 acre lot of Governor Haynes was added, and when the estate was purchased, Aug. 15, 1706, by Spencer Phips (afterwards Lieut.-governor), it was said to contain 300 acres more or less; but it actually contained 326 acres, when measured for division after his

Sharp contest in regard to Mount Auburn and Cambridge streets. important legal principle first established in the trial and decision of this contest It has already been stated in chapter v., that a ferry was established in 1635 across Charles River (at the foot of Dunster Street), from which there was a road through Brookline and Roxbury to Boston. The only other feasible route to Boston was through Charlestown, and across a ferry near Copp's Hill. Desiring to avoid the inconvenience and peril of a ferry, the inhabitants of Cambridge consented, Nov. 10, 1656, to pay each one their proportion of a rate to the sum of 2001. towards the building a bridge over Charles River, upon condition the same may be effected wit

In the Proprietors' Records, 1635, it is stated that a large lot, originally designed for Richard Saltonstall, is now to be entered the Market Place. It was bounded northerly on Mount Auburn Street, easterly on Brighton Street, and southerly on Winthrop Street. This lot retained s evidently refers to some spot devoted to the burial of the dead, earlier 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 o

The Reverend Jonathan Mitchell, described by Mather as the matchless Mitchell, was born at Halifax, in Yorkshire, England, about 1624, and was brought by his father to New England in 1635. Their first settlement, says Dr. Holmes, was at Concord, in Massachusetts; whence, a year after, they removed to Saybrook, in Connecticut; and, not long after, to Wethersfield. Their next removal was to Stamford, where Mr. Mitchell, the father, died in 1645, aetat. LV. The classical studies of his son Jonathan were suspended for several years after his arrival in America; but, on the earnest advice of some that had observed his great capacity, they were at length resumed in 1642.
