TAYLOR, Edward, clergyman, born in England in 1642; died in Westfield, Massachusetts, 29 June, 1729 He began his education in England with the intention of following the ministry, left that country on account of measures that were taken against non-conformists, and on his arrival in Massachusetts in 1668 entered Harvard, where he was graduated in 1671. He was invited to become minister to the people of Westfield, and arrived there Oh 3 December, 1671, but, owing to the insecurity of that frontier settlement and the small number of its inhabitants, the church was not organized till 27 August, 1679. He performed the duties of minister there, and for much of the time those of physician also, until his death. He left several manuscript volumes, including a "Commentary on the Four Gospels," "Christographia, or a Discourse on the Virtues and Character of Christ," and poems in English and in Latin.
