A genealogical dictionary of the first settlers of New England : showing three generations of those who came before May, 1692, on the basis of the Farmer's Register by James Savage( Book )

64 editions published between 1860 and 2008 in English and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the basic genealogical dictionary of early New England settlers, giving the name of every settler who arrived in New England before 1692 regardless of their station, rank, or fortune. Alphabetically arranged for each it gives the dates of his marriage and death, dates of birth, marriage and death of his children, and birthdates and names of the grandchildren. According to the author, "nineteen twentieths of the people of these New England colonies in 1775 were descendants of those found here in 1692, and probably seven-eighths of them were offspring of the settlers before 1642." Owners of this series will also want to purchase the new Female Index to "Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England," which indexes all the females scattered throughout Savage's four volumes by both maiden and married names."--Amazon
The journal of John Winthrop, 1630-1649 by John Winthrop( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridged edition of Winthrop's journal, which incorporates about 40 percent of the governor's text, with his spelling and punctuation modernized, includes a lively Introduction and complete annotation. It also includes Winthrop's famous lay sermon, "A Model of Christian Charity," written in 1630. As in the fuller journal, this abridged edition contains the drama of Winthrop's life - his defeat at the hands of the freemen for governor, the banishment and flight of Roger Williams to Rhode Island, the Pequot War that exterminated his Indian opponents, and the Antinomian controversy. Here is the earliest American document on the perpetual contest between the forces of good and evil in the wilderness - Winthrop's recounting of how God's Chosen People escaped from captivity into the promised land. While he recorded all the sexual scandal - rape, fornication, adultery, sodomy, and buggery - it was only to show that even in Godly New England the Devil was continually at work, and man must be forever militant

The following journal was written by John Winthrop, Esq., first governor of Massachusetts. When the design of settling a colony in New England was undertaken, Mr. Winthrop was chosen, with general consent, to conduct the enterprise. He arrived at Salem, with the Massachusetts charter, June 12, 1630. He was many years governor of that infant colony, and conducted himself with such address and unshaken rectitude, as to render his character universally respectable among his contemporaries, and his memory dear to posterity. He died March 26, 1649. Mr. Winthrop kept a journal of every important occurrence, from his first embarking for America, in 1630, to the year 1644. - Editor's preface
