Join: Puritan Great Migration Project
Ralph had been a clergyman of the Church of England and had arrived at Boston on November 17, 1636. He moved to Duxbury in 1637. There was a George Partridge in Duxbury at the same time that Ralph Partridge lived there, but there is probably no relationship between the two. Rev. Partridge was the first minister of the church at Duxbury, Massachusetts in 1637.  He served there until he died there about April 1658 (between 25 Mar 1658 and 4 May 4 1658). The commonly cited alternate death date of September 29, 1655, has probably been calculated based on the date of his will., with 9 days added to correct for old-style dating. Rev. Partridge was so well-respected that the noted Cotton Mather wrote about him in "Magnalia".
In his Will, Ralph mentioned the following relatives: his daughter Elizabeth Thacher, her eldest son Thomas Thacher, her second son Richard Thacher, her youngest son Peter Thacher, and her eldest daughter Patricia Kemp; his eldest daughter Mary, wife of John Marshall and her sons Robert and John; his deceased wife Patience; his sister Elizabeth Tidge.
