Consists of the journal of Richard Mather (1596-1669) kept during the 1635 ocean passage over the Atlantic from England to Dorcheser, Massachusetts. The second portion, the life and death of Richard, was sent forth under the name and sanction of Increase Mather (1639-1723), son of Richard, although professedly not written by Increase. As the pedigree chart in the appendix illustrates, Cotton Mather (1663-1728) was a son of Increase and a grandson of Richard. The pedigree chart includes ancestry in England to the early 1500s
