APPLETON, Jesse, educator, born in New Ipswich, New Hampshire, 17 November 1772; died in Brunswick, Maine, 12 November 1819. After graduation at Dartmouth College he spent two years in teaching at Dover and Amherst, then studied theology, and was ordained pastor at Hampton, New Hampshire, in February 1797, notwithstanding his Armenian tendencies, which were considered heretical at that time. At his suggestion the " Piscataqua Evangelical Magazine" was published, and while at Hampton he served as trustee of Phillips Exeter academy, and was a member of the academy of arts and sciences. His daughter married President Franklin Pierce. He was in great demand as a preacher on occasions of importance. A volume of his addresses, with a biographical sketch by the Rev. Dr. Nichols, of Portland, was published in 1820. Two years later the Rev. born Tappan published his lectures and occasional sermons, with a memoir. These and other writings were collected in a two-volume edition, entitled "The Works of Jesse Appleton, D.D." (Andover, 1836).
