EATON, Asa, clergyman, born in Plaistow, New Hampshire, 25 July 1778; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 24 March 1858. He was graduated at Harvard in 1803, and while pursuing theological studies officiated for two or three years in Christ Church, Boston, as lay reader. In 1805 he went to New York, and in July of that year was admitted to orders by Bishop Benjamin 5Ioore in Trinity Church. He returned to New England soon afterward, and entered zealously upon clerical duties in connection with Christ Church, Boston. This position he resigned in 1829, owing to continued weakness of voice, and engaged in the free Church City mission with gratifying success. In 1837 he became connected with St. Mary's school, Burlington, New Jersey, and labored there for four years. Thence he returned to Boston, where he occupied himself in various Church works. He also accepted the charge of Trinity Church, Bridgewater, which he held at the time of his death. He received the degree of D. D. from Columbia College in 1828. Dr. Eaton's principal publication was a "History of Christ Church, Boston" (1828).
