Mr. Lothrop was the son of Isaac and Priscilla (Thomas) (Watson) Lothrop,
and was born in Plymouth, December 11, 1735, the eldest of 5 children, and
like his father, was a merchant, as well as Judge. He was appointed Judge of
Probate for the county of Norfolk, which office he held till his death. The
unbending uprightness of his conduct in his official capacity the fidelity with
which he discharged his duties, as well as his ability and gentlemanly
bearing in all the works of life will long be remembered with affectionate
respect. He cherished with lively ardor a natural fondness for antiquity, and
so exalted was his veneration for pious planters in New England who first landed
in Plymouth, that he delighted in tracing their every footstep, and the minutest
circumstances of their history were treasured in his mind. He was one of
the early members of the Pilgrim Society, and also one of the earliest
members of the Humane Society. "In his friendships he was steady, ardent and sincere; undisguised in his feelings and removed from the least tincture of duplicity, his bosom was a sacred depository of confidential intercourse. If his prejudices
were strong, they were invariably pointed at what he devoutly believed to be
profligacy of principle, or dishonesty in practice. Such in fine was Mr. Lothrop's scrupulous integrity, such his through detestation of every species of iniquitous,
or even temporizing procedure, that the inscription on the tombstone of his
beloved father would be an appropriate one for his own."
