______________________________________________

Isaac Lothrop Esq., was the son of Isaac and
Elizabeth (Barnes) Lothrop; born 1707; married
1st, Hannah, daughter of Edmund Freeman, 1729;
married 2nd, Priscilla (Thomas) widow of John
Watson, 1733. He was Justice of the Court of
Common Pleas, and his death was lamented through-
out the county. At the opening of the Court at
the next term of the Court after his death, the
Chief Justice, Nicholas Sever, and Peter Oliver,
an Associate Justice of the Court, both expressed
their great grief and sorrow with which the Court
and bar were affected by the melancholy event, and
observed that Col. Lothrop was held in profound
regard as a Judge, and was greatly respected for
his moral and Christian virtues. He possessed a
large estate, and transacted extensive business
in the mercantile line, in which he sustained an
honorable and upright character. Few men have
been more beloved, nor any whose death could
diffuse more heartfelt sorrow among the poor,
and in every social circle. He had five
children, four sons and one daughter.
