Samuel Foxcroft was the son of the Rev. Thomas Foxcroft, who was the pastor of the First Church from Boston from 1717 to 1769. He answered the call from the proprietors and was ordained on 16 January 1765 in the presence of forty families. The place of worship for the first eight years of his tenure was the Block House. In 1770 it was voted to construct a meeting house and the first meeting in that structure was held on January 7, 1773.
