The Rev. Ralph Partridge was the first minister of the church in Duxbury, Massachusetts. He served there until he died.
Rev. Ralph /Partridge
- Birth 12 Apr 1579 Sutton, Kent, England
- Marriage 14 Jan 1608 Kent
- Arrival 1636 New England
Died in Duxbury, Massachusetts, between March 1 and May 4, 1658.
- Also found Death 29 Sep 1655 Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts
From History of Duxbury, p. 173:
- "1658. The church suffered a sad bereavement in the death of their beloved pastor, which occurred in the present year. And here it seems best to follow, the words of Secretary Morton, who, in recording his death in his Memorial, thus mentions him: "Mr. Ralph Partridge died in a good old Age, having for the space of fourty years dispensed the Word of God with very little impediment by sickness."'

- ↑ Arrived at these dates based on information from History of Duxbury, p. 177: "Mr. Partridge's will bears date Sept. 20th, 1655; and was proved May 4th, 1658." and p. 173: "1658. The church suffered a sad bereavement in the death of their beloved pastor, which occurred in the present year." At that time, the new year began in March, so if he died in 1658, it would have been March 1 or later. He must have died before the date his will was proved, May 4th.
