This memorial is a cenotaph.

According to Nathaniel B. Shurtleff, M. D., in a private tract printed in 1850;
"The first pastor of the Church at Marshfield was Rev. Richard Blinman, a Welchman, who came to New England through the influence of Governor Winslow. He was admitted to the freedom of the Massachusetts Colony on the seventh of October, 1641, having been previously propounded at Plymouth on the second of March, 1640-1, and soon after moved to Marshfield, where he remained only a very short time. He afterwards was at Gloucester, New London and New Haven, and finally returned to England, and preached in Bristol, where he died at an advanced age. That he was ever settled over the Church, so as to entitle him to be considered its pastor, is doubtful; but the offices which he performed may, through courtesy and with propriety, give him the title, which he perhaps did not have by a regular settlement according to the Custom and manner of the time, over the Marshfield Church."
