He was called to the pastorate here Feb. 10, 1825, accepted, received, a settlement of 200 with an annual salary of 80; was ordained Oct. 13, 1725. His ministry was long and peaceful until near the end, when there was trouble about his salary due to depreciation in money. His health failed and at his own request a council was hefd in Nov., 1744 and in accordance with the judgment of that body he was dismissed in March, 1745. After his dismissal he removed to Windsor, Ct. The coming of Whitefield to Wor. was, in a measure, also cause of the friction between pastor and people. In Nov., 1744 he was called to Windsor, Ct., where he preached until he died in 1752. He was learned, eloquent, and faithful. Children; John Eliot, b. in Wor.
