PEMBERTON, Thomas, historian, born in Boston in 1728; died there, 5 July, 1807. He was a successful merchant of his native city, but devoted much of his time to historical research. He was an active member of the Massachusetts historical society, contributed largely to its collections, and bequeathed all his manuscripts to it. He wrote a Massachusetts chronology of the 18th century, containing in five manuscript volumes the remarkable events of each year, biographical notices of eminent men, and other items of interest. This work was used by Dr. Abiel Holmes in compiling his "Annals of America" (Boston, 1805). Mr. Pemberton's manuscript memoranda were also extensive. His historical journal of the American Revolution is printed in the collections of the Massachusetts historical society.
