He graduated from Harvard College in 171 2, and taught school in Hingham, for a time. He was settled as minister, in Dover, N. H., 18 Sept., 1717, on a salary of £90 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 wdse 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.

He was frequently chosen moderator of their famous town meetings, and was moderator of the thown meeting 3 Sep 1742 when Boston voted thanks to Peter Faneuil Esq. for the gift of the Market House and Town Hall. He was a member of the Old South Church, then under the pastorate of the immortal Paul Prince, who in his funeral discourse says of him: ‘I found that in a small, relaxed and feeble body, dwelt a great, alively, strong and well composed soul.’ James S. Loring read a paper before the New Eng. Hist. & Gen. Soc. 1 Oct 1856 on Thomas Cushing; published in The American Historical Magazine, 1st Series, Vol. VI, page 212.

On 29 May 1717 when Margaret was 20, she married William Fletcher in Brattle Square Church, Boston. Born in England.

There were apparently two or more different families, William and Margaret Fletcher, living in Boston at the same time. One family could not account for the births of all the children of William and Margaret that appear in the Boston records. Some of them were baptized at the Brattle Street church by their mother Margaret Fletcher and were, no doubt, the children of William and Margaret (Cushing) Fletcher who were married at that church in 1717.
