Blackman, Benjamin a Congregational minister, was the son of Rev. Adam Blackman, first minister at Stratford, Conn. Benjamin graduated at Harvard College in 1663; was ordained at Maiden in 1674; and resigned his charge in 1678. He left in consequence of dissatisfaction, and nine years afterward sued the town for arrears of his salary. After leaving Maiden, he preached at Scarborough, Me.; and in 1683 was a representative of the town of Saco. It is supposed that he died in Boston. See Sprague, Annals of the Aner. Pulpit, 1, 144.
