Summary
"Jonathan Edwards was born October 5, 1703, in the town of East Windsor, Connecticut. His father's family is said to be Welsh in its origin. The earliest known ancestor was a clergyman of the Church of England, whose widow, having remarried, emigrated to this country with her son, William Edwards, about 1640. The son of William was Richard Edwards, of Hartford, Conn., a prosperous merchant, who also sustained a high religious character. His oldest son, Timothy, the father of Jonathan Edwards, was born in 1669, and graduated at Harvard College in 1691. He received the two degrees of bachelor and master of arts on the same day, -- "an uncommon mark of respect paid to his extraordinary proficiency in learning." Having finished his preparatory theological studies, he was ordained "to the ministry of the Gospel" in the East Parish of Windsor in 1694. In the same year he was married to Esther Stoddard, a daughter of the celebrated Solomon Stoddard, minister of the church in Northampton"--Chapter.
