[NEHGR 14:112] Diary of Rev. Samuel Dexter, May 29th 1727: About this time there was an extraordinary cold that siez'd abundance of people and had a great deal of malignancy in it -- of qhich some other ails that set in, sundry persons syed and we lost severall aged persons in our town -- among which one was that worthy good man Deacon Jonathan Metcalf -- he dyed May 23 1727 in a good old age, having, I trust, served God and his generation faithfully, according to the will of God -- In which I met with a great loss, he being a very particular, sincere, and faithful friend, and has left but very few behind him in out town of the same mind who naturally cared for the welfare of his minister and the people among which he dwelt. I preached his funeral sermon from Rev. 14:13.

MM was admitted a townsman at Dedham 14 July 1637, joined the church in 1639 and was a selectman in 1641. He married 2) Mary Pidge of Roxbury 13 August 1645. In 1661 Robert War exchanged land with MM near the brick kiln; bricks were being manufactured at an early perid here and one of the principle clay pits was on land of MM on Dedham Island. Will dated 15.9.1664 and proved 1 February 1664-5 and inventoried at 364-18-05.
[NEHGR 78:63-5] The date of 3 September 1586 as the son of Rev Leonard Metcalf is in error: Leonard was born on that date, not Michael. The only thing that can be said of Michael is the was probably born 1592 as he was 45 years old when he embarked for New England in 1637. The baptism records for their children are given.
[NEHGR 80:312-3] The write notes a deposition found in the diocesan registry at Norwich in which MM describes himself as 45 years and born in Tatterford (presumably in 1635). There is a gap in the records at Tatterford for 1590 and as there is nothing to show that there is any other Metcalf family at Tatterford at that time, and as there is a gap between Nicholas (1586) and Mathew (1592), it seems reasonable to assume that Michael is the son of Rev Leonard Metcalf.
[NEHGR 86:254-5] From the Books of the Mayors Court: in 1624 MM a search of the dornix weavers; 1627 a warden of the dornix weavers for one year; 1629, ditto; 1636 MM and others sworn. From Sessions Books and Search Books: 1631, ordered to pay 1/2d to overseers (St Pauls); 1633-4, MM listed as in St Edmunds Parish; 1635. MM and others in a courst suit agains Augustine, and others.
