Notes for John Butterworth

  • John Butterworth was a Baptist, and one of the seven founders of the first Baptist church in MA, and the second in America, at Rehoboth. It was later moved to Swansey, because the court fined them for having these services, and not paying taxes to the established church. (Source: NEHGR, Vol. 1 and 2).
  • John's uncle, Samuel Butterworth came over before John. He became a freeman at Rehoboth 3 JUL 1652, and received land 22 JUN 1658. He had moved there by 1662. In 1663, the Baptist Church was organized in John's home, and met there regularly. He became a long time deacon.
  • Rehoboth did not want Baptists, so John Butterworth and others received permission to start a new town, Swanzey, named after Swanzey, Wales. He and four others were in charge of admitting inhabitants, disposing of lands, and soing other affairs of the town. On 16 MAR 1677, John was given the job of distributing relief from Ireland to help sufferers in the Indian war. He was constable in 1685. (NEHGR)
