Weld, Thomas (b. BEF 15 JUL 1595)
Note: Thomas Weld matriculated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and earned an B.A. degree there in 1613/14. he earned an M.A. in 1618. He was ordained a deacon at Peterborough on Mar 1 1617/18 and a priest the following day. He served as vicar at Haverhill in Suffolk and then Terling in Essex.

His nonconformity to the teachings and practices of the Church of England attracted the attention of Archbishop Laud, who was determined to enforce orthodoxy, and on Nov 24 1631 the Court of High Commission deposed Weld from his pulpit "for his contumacy." He shortly set sail for Boston, arriving on Jun 5 1632. In July, he was appointed pastor of the Roxbury church and was joined there the following November by the Rev. John Eliot as teacher.

Weld was very active in the antinomian controversy and participated in the trials of the leaders of that heresy, including Mrs. Anne Hutchinson (See No. XXX). He was named overseer of Harvard in 1638, the year the university was founded. Together with John Eliot and Richard Mather, he prepared the Bay Psalm Book, the first book published in English North America, in 1640.

In 1641 he was sent by the General Court to England to help raise money for the colony and, with others, succeeded in raising two thousand pounds the first year. To help, he and Hugh Peter edited and partly wrote New England's First Fruits, published in London in 1643. he was soon the colony's sole agent in England and succeeded in securing Harvard's first scholarship fund but was unable to prevent Roger Williams from gaining a patent for what became Rhode Island. He was dismissed as agent for Massachusetts on Oct 1 1645 because of this failure and several other disputes but was exonerated of any wrongdoing a few years later.

Weld was active in English politics at this time and plotted to exile Archbishop Laud to New England rather than have him executed. He visited the ousted Archbishop in the Tower in 1643, and upbraided him for having had him suspended from his church ten years earlier.

But Weld was quite as narrow-minded and intolerant as Laud. Made rector of St. Mary's, Gateshead, Durham, on Feb 1 1649/50, a few days after the execution of King Charles I, he supported the Commonwealth, wrote pamphlets denouncing Quakers and Anabaptists and uncovering "Jesuit plots." He excluded all but the "elect" from the sacraments and this alienated most of his parish. He resigned his pulpit shortly before the restoration of the Stuarts in 1660 and moved to London, where he died.
