Pynchon, Wiliam an English divine, was born in the second half of the 16th century, and, after migrating to this country, settled at Roxbury, Mass., in 1630, aged 71 or 73. In 1637 he removed to Springfield, Mass. He finally returned to England, and died at Wraysbury, Buckinghamshire, in 1662. He published, The Meritiorious Price of Christ's Redemption (Lond. 1650 and 1655, 4to); which was so heretical in tendency that it offended the Puritanic fathers, and was burned on the Common by order of the authorities of Massachusetts: — The Jewes' Synagogue (1652, 4to): — Time and Manner how the First Sabbath was Ordained, etc. (1654, 4to).
