Excerpt from Diary Kept at the Siege of Louisburg: March 15-August 14, 1745, With Notes and an Introduction Twenty years later the father died at Maiden, on July 13, 1767, and then as a filial return for this act the son preached a sermon on his death. On April 2, 1753, the Act was signed by Goverr Shirley, making the second or west parish of Groton a district, which was the next step toward its final and complete separation from the mother town. At this period of time the Crown authorities were jealous of the growth of the popular party in the House of Representatives, and for that reason they frowned on every attempt to increase the number of its members.
