  • Note: The Reverend Ivory Hovey was the son of Capt. Ivory Hovey and Anne Pingree of Topsfield, Mass. Born July 3, 1714, he was a graduate of Harvard College in 1735. He settled his ministry in the Mattapoisett section of Rochester, Mass., in 1740 and remained there until October of 1769. In April of 1770 he was installed at the Congregational church in Manomet in the town of Plymouth where he remained for the rest of his life. During the first few years of his ministry in Mattapoisett he fell ill and developed an intense interest in medicine. He studied the practice and from then on practiced medicine as much as ministry. In 1737 he served as a private tutor for a family in Biddeford, Maine. There he met Olive Jordan, daughter of Capt. Samuel Jordan and they were married Feb. 8, 1739. They had seven children, two of whom died in infancy. The Rev. Mr. Hovey died Nov 4, 1803, and is buried in Manomet. One of his descendants, Col. (Ret.) George Gordon Bartlett, Jr., donated many of Hovey's papers to NEHGS in 1983 [MSS 68]. Among them was a record of marriages and baptisms performed while Hovey was a minister in Plymouth between 1775 and 1803. The last baptism was recorded just a few weeks prior to his death.
