Other NoteVicar of Whaddon (from 1681); Vicar of St. Neots (1690-92). He seceded in this year and became Pastor at Castle Hill (1694-1700) and at Bocking (1700 until his death). The preacher of A Tryal of Regeneration and The Saints Jewel may have been a different person since these sermons were preached in New England and there is no mention of this Shepherd's relocation there. However, GEMMS biographical sources do not present any other likely candidate.
