1750 May 29 (Tuesday). My Kinsman Nathaniel Parkman accompany’d by Daniel Hastings came to See me. My Son Thomas also came home to See us. They all lodg’d here; and their Horses are all kept here. N.B. A Most Shocking Account of Mr. William Williams of Weston. And hear of Sudden Deaths from Day to Day.
Parkman’s nephew, the son of William Parkman of Boston.
Williams was accused of “heinous miscarriages,” and a church council of Oct. 24, 1750, which dismissed him, found him guilty of “gross Lasciviousness in Diverse instances.” Sibley, V, 297-298.
