    Англиканский пастор и миссионер. С 1631 жил в Бостоне, затем в г. Роксбери. Участвовал в создании "Массачусетского псалтыря" [ Bay Psalm Book]. В 1646 начал проповедовать христианство среди индейцев, с 1647 - на алгонкинском языке [ Algonquian]. Стал известен как "апостол индейцев" ["apostle to the Indians"].
