The First Parish Church of Norwell has records back to 1642 and has scanned all of the church records to facilitate historical and genealogical research. See http://www.firstparishnorwell.org/archive.htm
My understanding is James Sparrell was involved in the building of the church. Werelatelink cites a reference showing he was a member of the church in 1820.
Do any records exist of the building of the church?
