H time of his decease. He was also a colonel in the

militia of New England, and so highly did he stand in public estimation, that when the project was formed by the New England government for the reduction of Louisbourgh, he was made choice of and commissioned by the governors of the several provinces to command the troops upon the important occasion. It was the united voice of the province " that his appointment to the chief command gave them great satisfaction and hopes;" and those hopes were not disappointed, for Louisbourgh, after sustaining a siege of forty-nine days, surrendered to the arms of Lieutenant-General Pepperell, with the fortresses and territory thereunto belonging, thus crowning the expedition with triumph. For this signal service he was created a Baronet lotli November, 1746, " as Sir William Pepperell, of the province of Massachusetts, in North America," and had a grant of arms conferred upon him at the same time to perpetuate the memory of the event.
