Titus, Rev. Anson, of Amesbury, Mass., "Marriages of Rev. Thomas Foxcroft", NEHGR, vol. XLII (1888), pp. 152-155, pp. 250-254.


BOSTON. 1717 - 1769.

Transcribed by Rev. Anson Titus, Amesbury, Mass.
The following is a list of the marriages performed by the Rev. Thomas Foxcroft, pastor of the First Church, Boston, 1717-1769. Mr. Foxcroft had a sickness in May, 1736, from which he never recovered; hence was not able to assume those public duties devolving upon the senior pastor. Rev. Charles Chauncy became Mr. Foxcroft's colleague in 1727. Had it not been for ill-health Mr. Foxcroft would have exercised greater influence, as his talents merited, upon the religious thought of his generation. Mr. Foxcroft gave the sermon before the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, Boston, in 1723, which was published in 1884, together with a Historical Introduction, Biography and Bibliography of Mr. Foxcroft, by the transcriber, for the Company. This list of marriages was found among the literary effects of Mr. Foxcroft. -- A.T.
