From the History of the Ancient & Honorable Artillary Company:

Joshua Hobart (i64i),of Hingham, son of Edmund and Margaret Hobart, was born in Hingham, England, in 1614. He came to America with his parents in 1633, and tarried at Charlestown, where he was received into the church. In 1635, he removed to Hingham, Mass., where his brother. Rev. Peter Hobart, was pastor of the church. Joshua (1641) was admitted to be a freeman Sept. 3, 1634. He married in March, 1638, Ellen Ibrook, of Cambridge. He was a selectman of Hingham eight years, between 1662 and 1681 ; was deputy to the General Court in 1643, ^^^d served in that office a total of twenty-five years; was speaker of the House in 1674; was interested in the militia; became ensign in 1648, lieutenant in 1651, and captain of the Hingham company in 1653. He held the latter position for over twenty years. In 1670, he was on a committee to revise the laws; in 1673 ^^-s chosen to audit the accounts of the treasurer of the colony, and in 1672, he and Lieut. Fisher (1640), having been appointed commissioners, reported to the Legislature upon the boundary line between Massachu setts Bay and Plymouth colonies. In 1679, ^ petition, signed by Capt. Hobart (1641) and others, to form a troop of horse, was granted, and in June, 1680, this troop was attached to a new regiment, commanded by Col. \Vm. Stoughton. The Indian deed of Hingham, given in 1665, conveys to Capt. Joshua Hobart (1641) and John Thaxter, " for a valuable consideration to us payd " by them, "the Towneshippe of Hingham," for the use of the inhabitants of Hingham. He appears to have been one of the principals in the famous military quarrel in Hingham in 1645, which disturbed the train-band, the church, the town, and finally the elders and the General Court. It resulted in the fining of all the parties, not exempting his brother, the minister. Capt. Joshua (1641) was fined twenty pounds, being the heaviest penalty imposed on any of them. This quarrel arose about the election of one Bozoun Allen (1650) to be the first captain of the train-band in Hingham. Capt. Hobart (1641), probably in consequence of the severity of the court upon him, was not only promoted to be captain when Capt. Allen (1650) moved to Boston, but, March 20, 1655, he was, "by a joint consent and general vote of the town, freed from paying any rates for the public charge of the town during the time that he is chief ofificer of the town for the exercise of the military company." Both of the above-mentioned captains, at the time of this difference, were members of the House of Representatives. There is a tradition that, as captain of a company, he was in active service during some part of King Philip's War. He resided on Main Street, next east of the meeting-house of the First Parish, where he died, July 28, 1682.
