    Notes:

    "Theophilus Frary of Boston, cordwainer, son of John Frary of Dedham, was born in England. He resided in Dedham until he was admitted an inhabitant of Boston, Feb. 23, 1656-7. His first town office was that of surveyor in 1659-60, and he was selectman from 1679 to 1687 inclusive, and in 1689. He represented Boston in the General Court from 1689 to 1695 inclusive, and in 1699. He was one of the founders of the Old South Church in 1666, and was violently opposed to the Episcopal Church." [History of the Military Company of the Massachusetts, Now Called the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts, 1637-1888 by Oliver Ayer Roberts. Boston: Alfred Mudge & Son, 1895-1901.]

    His daughter Mehitable married Samuel Lillie, son of Edward Lillie; the Lillie family were staunch Episcopaleans. Edward Lillie died in Dec 1688 or Jan 1689, at the exact time when the unpopular Governor Andros was stirring up sectarian feeling by his attempts to impose Episcopacy upon Massachusetts. This led to a scene at Edward Lillie's burial service, described by Hamilton A. Hill in his History of the Old South Church:

    "There was a painful scene at the grave of Edward Lilley, who died during the winter of 1688-89, which shows the intensity of the feeling in the Puritan community against the introduction of the rites of the English church here. Lilley had been more or less in sympathy with the Episcopal party, and his name appears among the subscribers for building the new house of worship; but he had left the ordering of his funeral to the executors. The Rev. Mr. Ratcliffe claimed the right to read the service over him, which Mr. [Theophilus] Frary in behalf of the family protested against, and with so much vehemency that he was bound over to keep the peace."

    Theophilus married Hannah Eliot on 4 Jun 1653 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts. Hannah (daughter of Jacob Eliot and Margery) was born on 29 Jan 1637. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
