Excerpt from Historical Sketch of Boston: Containing a Brief Account of Its Settlement, Rise and Progress, With a Glance at Its Present and Prospective Prosperity

The first white man who settled in Boston proper was William Blackstone, an Episcopal clergyman, who wrote to Governor Winthrop, such a glowing description of the place where he had pitched his tent that the Governor was induced to leave Charlestown where he was then located, and settle at Trimountain, as the whites had named the place, or Shawmut as the Indians called it. This happened in August, 1630.
