Died: Jun. 28, 1685 - Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA
Nathaniel Morton was a nephew of Governor Bradford and became secretary of the Plymouth colony. In 1669 he published, New England's Memorial, a history of the colony. For the early years he drew directly on his uncle's book, transcribing large portions of it. Until the discovery of the Fulham manuscript, Morton's book was the best source for Bradford's text. The part which was concerned with the years following Bradford was written by Morton himself, and is not of the same quality.
