Excerpt from History of the First Church in Roxbury, Massachusetts: 1630 1904

Various records of the church and of the town, including Eliot's book, and the lives of the ministers and prominent members, have been from time to time published, but there has hitherto been no attempt to chronicle the history of the First Church in Roxbury. My own deep interest in the church with which my father was for so many years connected, has led me to make a systematic study of its foundation, the lives of the founders, and the chain of events leading down to the present time.

In the arrangement of material each of the five meeting houses erected on or near the site of the present one has been given a chapter. The authorities will be found in the adjoining list. From these, extensive quotations have been made, and as far as possible the records tell the story.

The early records of the town, school, and church are very imperfect; in Eliot's petition to the General Court, June 29, 1669, for a renewal of the school charter, he says, "Our first book and charter were burned in ye burning of John Johnson's house" (1645). But from 1652 the records are in a tolerably good condition, although the events are not always recorded in sequence. Rev. Amos Adams notes in reference to the church records, "Inasmuch as some things worthy of notice are not as I find mentioned in this Book and others yt are, are mentioned in divers places scattered up and down, I have thot proper here to insert ye following articles, following ye Revd. Mr. Eliot and Danforth's annals of events."
