*To this point all the entries of baptisms appear to be in the handwriting of Mr.
Tucke. The slight variations that occur are mostly such as may be explained by va-
riations in the condition of quills or possibly of health. The last entry, of the daugh-
ters of John Robinson, is distinctly characteristic and has special interest because it
makes it quite evident that Mr. Tucke did not die Aug. 12, 1773, as stated by Morse in
his " Description of the Isles of Shoals," and also cut in the tombstone on Star Island,
both of these being records made nearly thirty years after the event. The same date
is also given in a random entry in the Kecords of the Town of Gosport, but this entry
is out of place and much open to suspicion. The notice of his death appears in the
New Hampshire Gazette (of Portsmouth, N. H.) of 3 Sept. 1773 as a recent event
without an exact date. Mr. Tucke may have died as late as the day preceding this

f At this place there is a scrawl much cramped and twisted. It certainly does not
fit the name of either parent. This and the records down to and including Oct. 24 are
in the same hand, and my guess is that it is the hand of the younger Tucke, who was
at the Shoals as late as Oct. 21, when he signed a receipt as administrator of the estate
of his father. I am inclined to read the scrawl " Pastor" or " Pater," i.e. the Sunday
after the death of Mr. Tucke. " She " rewritten is a possible reading.

(End of the Recofd of Baptisms at Gosport.)

Mr. Tucke apparently tried 1;o collect records from other churches where
Shoalers had been baptized or married, etc., and entered them in the book
of the Church of Gosport. These memoranda seem to include families
living on the Shoals at about the time of his ordination, but no records of
the churches in Portsmouth or Kittery are given. The entries fill three
pages (149-151) as follows:

" A Record of Baptisms, Admissions, Dismissions, &c., by y® Neighbour-
ing Ministers." f

* Probably Henry Walker Andross is meant. His son William was baptized in Oc-
tober 1761. The name Walker does not appear in the annals of the Shoals so far as I
know them. I take it that, by a custom which was very common in the next century,
Andross was ordinarily called " Henry Walker," and the clergyman quite naturally
supposed that to be his whole name. o.- i j

fit is not unlikely that some of these baptisms were performed at the Shoals al-
though entered in the church record of another place.

J Probably Mr. John Carter (d. 1726) is meant.
