He graduated from Harvard College, 1712. He taught school in Hingham, for a time. He was settled as minister, in Dover, New Hampshire, 18 September 1717, on a salary of 90 pounds a year, and continued his pastorate there until his death in 1769, although for two years previous to that event he had Rev. Jeremy Belknap as a colleague. He was "a grave and sound preacher, a kind, peaceable, prudent and judicious pastor, a wise and faithful friend." In personal appearance he is said to have been "a large stout man, of dignified appearance." The meeting house in which he preached for the first 41 years stood upon Pine Tree Hill, a little distance northwest of the Cushing Tomb. The parson's dwelling house was not far from the church.
