  • Notes 
    • Arrived 16 Sep 1632 on the Lyon. First at Cambridge, then Hartford 1639, Northampton 1656. Slain in battle with native Americans. His name is on the Founders Monument in downtown Hartford.

      From Timothy Lester Jacobs at the Founders of Hartford site:

      While still in Massachusetts, on 5 Jun 1638 he was arrested for cursing and swearing and received the punishment of having his tongue put in a cleft stick. In Hartford, on 30 Jun 1646 he was arrested for slandering a woman. As punishment he was put in a pillory, whipped, fined 6 shillings, and served 6 months in jail; on 21 Aug 1646 he was charged with giving ill counsel to the prisoners, and was punished by being whipped.

      On 15 November 1653 he was on a committee to "receive in such inhabitants as they shall judge that for the carrying on the design" of settling Northampton. In 1656 he moved to Northampton. By the end of his life he was a prosperous and respected resident of Northampton. He was selectman of Northampton 27 April 1658. He was killed by Indians during the Northampton raid in King Philip's War.
