Thomas Shepard (1605-1649) was born in Towcester, near Northampton, in Great-Britain. When Dr. Laud became bishop of London, Mr. Shepard was silenced for his Puritanism. The removal of Mr. Cotton, Mr. Hooker, Mr. Stone and others, to America had already excited many pious people, in various parts of England, to contemplate a similar removal. After a diligent, laborious, and successful ministry, he died of the quinsy, August 25, 1649. On his death-bed, he said to the young ministers around him, “That their work was great, and called for great seriousness;” and mentioned to them three things concerning himself: “That the study of every sermon cost him tears; That before he preached any Sermon he got good by it himself; and, That he always went into the pulpit, as if he were to give up his accounts to his Master.” He is said to have been “a poore, weake, pale complectioned man.” He was distinguished for his humility and piety; and as a preacher of evangelical truth, and an author of experimental religion, he was one of the foremost of his day. “By his death, not only the church and people at Cambridge, but also all New-England, sustained a very great loss. He not only preached the gospel profitably and successfully, but also left behind him divers worthy works of special use, in reference unto the clearing up the state of the soul toward God.”
