    • James, minister, of Salisbury, Massachusetts.

      From the Alling-Allens of New Haven:
      Rev. James Alling, youngest son of Roger was educated at Harvard College (now university), where he graduated in 1679. He afterwards studied for the ministry and was called to the church in Salisbury, Mass., in 1682, where he died in 1696.
      The nuncupative will of the father directs that his son James Ailing be brought up lo learning.
      At a meeting of ye Corporation, 14, 3, 77 he was chosen schollar of ye house. Being from ye colonie of Nox or New-haven, he received seven pounds from ye Pemoyer Fund by vote of ye Corporation 3 July, 1679.
      January 17, 1681, the village of East Haven, Conn., having received encouragement from the General Court, appointed a Committee to speak with Mr. James Ailing to know his mind with reference to his settling there as a minister. He served them several months, but contemplating a long journey, he declined the invitation to stay longer with them. His name occurs several times in Noahadiah’s Russell’s Diary in connection with payments made to him. In 1682 he was invited to preach in Salisbury, Mass., and probably delivered his first sermon there the 17th December. He was ordained 4th May, 1687, being the successor of Wheelwright, and the third minister. He died March 3, 1695-6, after three months’ sore sickness with dry Gripes. He was a gentleman well accomplished and of a sweet disposition.
