    Notes:

    From Hale, House and Related Families by Donald Lines Jacobus and Edgar Francis Waterman (citation details below)::

    He went to school in Cambridge to the famous Master Corlet. He was graduated at Harvard College in 1662, and was chosen Tutor of the College, 25 Nov. 1666. He is the first Librarian of the College on record. His health becoming impaired by too close application to his studies, he went to Barbados as Chaplain to Governor Serle. There he preached to the Dissenters.

    In 1669 he was planning a voyage to England and was to embark on the following day, when a request from the church in Northampton, Mass., caused him to change his plans and to go thither. On 4 Mar. 1669/70, the town voted him £100 annually if he settled with them, but he did not formally accept tor nearly two years, and was ordained 11 Sept. 1672. Soon after coming to Northampton, he married the young widow of Rev. Eleazer Mather, his predecessor in the pastorate.

    He was skilled in the learned languages and had a great reputation as a scholar. As a minister he was remarkably successful in gaining converts and in retaining the respect of his congregation. He was above the average in height, with good features and a venerable presence. He had a strong constitution, was seldom ill, and was a constant preacher for sixty years.

    A considerable number of his writings were published. The Doctrine of Instituted Churches in 1700 maintains that the Lord's table should be ac cessible to all persons who are not immoral. This brought him into conflict with the conservative Mathers, and as late as 1709 the subject was discussed in pamphleted sermons on either side of the controversy. The subject was ably treated by Stoddard, and his influence on the churches of Connecticut and of the river towns of central Massachusetts is seen in their adoption of the "Half-Way Covenant," which permitted the baptism of children of baptized but "unconverted" parents who were not full church members.

    In his old age, his grandson Jonathan Edwards became his colleague, and eventually his successor in the pastorate of the Northampton church. Oddly enough, it was the turning of Edwards from his grandfather's liberal doctrine towards a stricter Calvinsim which caused the Northampton church to dismiss him.

    Solomon married Esther Warham on 8 Mar 1670. Esther (daughter of Rev. John Warham and Jane) was born before 8 Dec 1644; died on 10 Feb 1736 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts; was buried in Bridge Street Cemetery, Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    In 1759 Timothy Edwards assumed the guardianship of his orphaned neice Sarah "Sally" Burr, age 5, and her brother Aaron Burr, age 3. The following year he married Rhoda Ogden and moved, with both children, to Elizabeth, New Jersey, where Burr spent the next decade. Edwards was a harsh disciplinarian, fond of corporal punishment, and the young Burr submitted to this with all the inclination toward conformity and obedience that he displayed in his later career, which is to say, he made multiple attempts to run away to sea. Eventually Edwards and the young Burr came to an understanding which included the hiring of a tutor to prepare the boy to enter the College of New Jersey (later Princeton). After an unsuccessful application in 1767, Burr was accepted in 1769, at age 13, with sophomore standing.

    Timothy married Rhoda Ogden on 25 Sep 1760 in Elizabethtown, Essex, New Jersey.
