History of the Town of Duxbury, Mass, with Genealogical Registers, Justin Winsor, 1849. Gives a nice complete history of Duxbury with some limited genealogies in the genealogy section, including George Partridge (Ralph Partridge not here). There is an eight page biography of Ralph Partridge. Any descendant of his should get a copy of that biography. (But, are George descendants related to Ralph?)

Settlement and Growth of Duxbury, 1628-1870, Dorothy Wentworth, Duxbury Rural and Historical Society. This has late 19th century photographs of the locations mentioned in the book and a very descriptive idea of the geography and who was where, describing the history of different homes and properties in the town. Wonderful reading.
