The inhabitants of the territory left on the south side of Charles River petitioned to be made a separate precinct, as early as 1748, and renewed their petition, from time to time, until April 2, 1779, when they were authorized to bring in a bill to incorporate them as an ecclesiastical parish, excepting Samuel Sparhawk, John Gardner, Joanna Gardner, and Moses Griggs, and their estates.

It is also said: We have supported the gospel among us some part of the year for fourteen years, during which time we set apart a house for divine worship that had been a dwelling-house: upon finding it too small for the congregation we erected a convenient house for the worship of God, . . . . and soon after we had winter-preaching in this house we concluded to have summer-preaching in it also: and we are now in the 5 ye
