Another possible nuance to "in the room of" would be, as found in New
England records, that Peter Hall had a reason for being replaced, i.e., he
begged off, he died, he was ill, his judgment was questioned and he was
removed - as opposed to the orderly rotation of people in the job. I usually
take this as a clue that more could be learned in other records about his
situation/condition at the time of the replacement.
