    From Wikipedia (accessed 19 Sep 2020):

    Rev. John Maverick (1578-1636) was the first minister of the First Parish Church of Dorchester in early colonial Dorchester, Massachusetts.

    John Maverick was born to Rev. Peter Maverick, a vicar in Awliscombe, Devon in 1578. In 1595, Maverick enrolled in University of Oxford. Five years later, in 1600, he married Mary Gye. Two of their sons, Samuel and Moses, are notable people in early Massachusetts history. In 1603, Maverick received his MA from Oxford. He was the curate for his uncle, Rev. Radford Maverick, from 1606 to 1614. Afterwards, he was rector of a church in Beaworthy, Devon until 1629.

    Maverick became a Puritan before migrating to the Massachusetts Bay Colony at Dorchester, Massachusetts on 30 May 1630, where he served as the first minister of the First Parish Church of Dorchester with Rev. John Warham. He became a freeman in 1631 and helped establish the government in Dorchester. He died February 3, 1636. His eulogy was by John Cotton and Governor John Winthrop.

    John married Mary Gye on 28 Oct 1600 in Ilsington, Devon, England. Mary (daughter of Robert Gye and Grace Dowrish) was born about 1580; died after 9 Oct 1666. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 2.  Peter Mavericke was born about 1550 (son of Robert Mavericke); died before 3 Feb 1617.


    Clerk and vicar of Awliscombe, Devon. 3 Feb 1617, here given as the date prior to which he died, is the date on which the vicarage went to John Hassard. The record indicates that by then it had been vacant for some period of time, and (according to Elizabeth French, citation details below), the choice of Latin terminology employed hints that Peter Mavericke met a violent end. "In the parish register of Awliscombe the burial of Peter Mavericke is not recorded, nor is there any allusion in the registers to the time, place, or manner of his death."

    Peter married Dorothy Tucke on 7 Nov 1577 in Awliscombe, Devon, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
