one of the remarkable

of the da}', records plainly

showing that he was one of the foremost men in social, reHgious,* business and political affairs. He served the town selectman as as early as 1699, and was subsequently chosen to that ofllce several times.* We find him on the grand jury in 1702, was chosen moderator of the town meeting in He frequently 1721, and appointed tithingman in 1726.1

*The

origin of the

title

the tun-gerefa of the old

"selectmen" it is difficult to determine. It may possibly be referred to Anglo-Saxon township, who, with " the four best men," was the legal rep-

community, or to the "probi homines" of more ancient times. The prefix "select" would seem to indicate the best, the most approved; but, as in the Massachusetts colony, they were called, as early as 1^42, "selected townsmen," it probable that without reference to any historic
resentative of the
i.-.

type they were merely the

men

appointed, chosen, selected from the townsmen, to have charge oi

The tithingman had

placed under his oversight ten families of Indians, and

said that for this reason he

The General Court

in 1692

required

tithingmen to be chosen by the towns, and specified their duties as follows:

"All and every person and persons whatever shall, on the Lord's day, carefully apply themselves of religion and piety publicly and privately, and no tradesman, artificer, laborer, or other person whatever shall upon the land or otherwise do or exercise any labor, business, or work of their ordinary callings, nor engage in any games, sport, play or recreation on the Lord's day, or any part there of (works of necessity and charity only excepted) upon penalty that every person so offending
