MAUDUIT, Israel, English political writer, born in Exeter, England, in 1708 ; died 16 June, 1787. He was descended from a family of French Protestant refugees. His father, a dissenting minister, educated him for the same profession, but he became a prosperous merchant and the partner of his brother Jasper in London. In 1763 he was ill-trusted with the representation of the interests of Massachusetts, of which Jasper Mauduit was the nominal agent. He became collector at Southampton in 1765, and wrote several pamphlets in behalf of Massachusetts and of the New England colonies during the ten years of negotiations before the Revolution. His publications are "Considdrations sur la guerre prdsente d'Allemagne" (London, 1760)" "Memoires sur les finances et le commerce d'Angleterre," translated from the English of George Grenville (1769); a "Short View of the History of the New England Colonies" (1769); a "Short View of the History of Massachusetts Bay" (2d ed., 1774); "The Case of the Dissenting Minis-lets" (1774); and pamphlets in reference to the American war, treating Lord Howe and Sir William Howe with severity for their conduct in Boston.--His brother, Jasper, wrote "Letter relative to a Reimbursement from Parliament for supporting French Neutrals from Nova Scotia" (1763) ; "Letter relative to the Duty laid on Foreign Molasses" (1763) ; and "Letter on Foreign Molasses, the keeping up Ten Thousand Troops in America., etc." (1764)--all of which are published in the first series of the Massachusetts historical society's collections.
