    "Rev. John (Collins), A.B. (Harvard, 1649), A.M., b. in England about 1633; brought by his parents to New England; d. in London 3 Dec. 1687; m. _____. He was a fellow and tutor at Harvard College, 1651-1653, went to England in the time of the Protectorate, and was a fellow of Pembroke College, Cambridge, and a minister in Edinburgh. He was chaplain to General Monk, before the latter marched out of Scotland into England and restored Charles II to the throne. He became pastor of a large Independent congregation at Pinner's Hall, London. No pastor, says Cotton Mather in the 'Magnalia,' ever called forth from the living church more veneration in life or deeper grief for his death."

    "2. John2 Collins (Dea. Edward1), born in England in 1633, Harvard College 1649, became a minister, returned to England in the time of the Civil War, and 'became a celebrated preacher in London having a sweet voice and a most affectionate manner in the pulpit.' He was chaplain to Gen. Monk, afterwards Duke of Albemarle, when he marched out of Scotland into England, but accepted no place under the Act of Uniformity. He succeeded Rev. William Mallory as pastor of a large independent congregation at Pinner's Hall, London. No pastor, says his epitaph by Cotton Mather in the Magnolia however great his excellences, ever called forth from the living church more veneration in life or deeper grief for his death. He died in London, Dec. 3, 1687."
