  • Notes 
    • "Graduating from Harvard College in 1669 he became the first minister of the parish of Salem Village in 1671. His wife's sister married into the Putnam family as did two of his own brothers, and he had the support of that powerful clan, but there was much opposition to 'settling' him, the parish controversy finally reaching the General Court. That body, overreaching itself, ordered that the church settle Mr. Bailey and pay him £60 a year, but this decision was ignored and Bailey retired in 1679. From 1682 to about 1691 he preached at Killingworth, Conn., going to Roxbury in the latter year and practising as a physician. He died after a very distressing illness Jan. 20, 1706/7. His brothers Isaac and Joshua came from Newbury for his funeral.
