Rev. Joseph Emerson1,2

M, b. circa 25 June 1620, d. 3 January 1680
      Mr. Emerson was a minister of the standing order of puritan clergymen. Of his education nothing is known. Tradition says he was educated in England. He may have studied at Harvard. He was at Ipswich as early as 1638. Was admitted freeman there, 19 December 1648. He preached at York, Maine, the same year.

      In 1653, he was a resident of Wells, and took the freeman's oath 4 July 1653; and was an inhabitant when the commissioners took the submission of the people, the court being held in his house. He favored submission to Massachusetts in 1651-2, and was evidently a leading man of the Massachusetts party. He signed a petition to Cromwell as of Wells, asking the protector to confirm the jurisdiction of Massachusetts over the inhabitants of Wells. In this petition, which he probably wrote, the people of Wells refer Cromwell to their pyous and reverend friend, Mr. John Wheelwright, sometime of us, now in England, for any desired information as to their condition or character. He soon lost his hold on the affections of the people of Wells; largely, perhaps, because of the political dissensions which disturbed the church.

[Judge Taft found on loose paper in the old Book of Records at Wells]
A record of the contract of settlement of Joseph Emerson, 1664, between he and the members of his church, fixing his salary and compensation while he should remain their minister. It describes him as "of Wells," showing that he was alread a resident. The contract was not so stringent as that with the people of Mendon. But it was a careful stipulation. They were to pay him annually sixty-five pounds and do sundry other things, and get the people of York to pay a certain sum. Dated 13th day of____, 1664.

13 July 1663 Ordered that the presentments of such persons as have not answered theretoo be proceeded with.... Mr. Emerson with others expcepted.

      The above witnesses were all York people. The first two were strong opponents of Massachusetts rule; and the others wre probably so. The last two were man and wife, and quite worthless people.

      After Mr. Emerson left, the church is said to have dwindled to two families, and they quarrelled. Orders came from Massachusetts government that the church disband. Ordres quickly followed that the town be indicted for not maintaining public worship.

      About 1664, he left Wells and became the first minister of Milton; asking an increase of salary on account of his approaching marriage, he was dismissed. Joseph was born circa 25 June 1620 at in St. Michael's Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, England. He was the son of Thomas Emerson and Elizabeth Brewster. He married Elizabeth Woodmansey before 1649. He married Elizabeth Bulkeley on 7 December 1665. Joseph died on 3 January 1680 at Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts.
