About John Fowle

Public Library.

† Robert Luist Fowle, first child of JOHN FOWLE, Daniel Fowle’s eldest brother, did not fall far from the tree. Though educated at Harvard (Class of 1732), John’s career was less than stellar. Dismissed as Pastor of the Church of Christ in Hingham in 1746 “because of mental derangement,” he was later assigned by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Norwalk, Connecticut. John was dismissed from that position in 1756 for selling the mission library. He is thought to have gambled away the money. By 1761, John was reduced to working as a scrivener in Portsmouth. He later returned to Boston, where he was imprisoned for debt and died in jail.
