  • Notes 
    • Arrived in Eastham before 1661. He appears on a list of heads of families in Monomoit in 1711, one year before the town name was changed to Chatham, but he disappears from the record after that. Elizabeth Pearson White (citation details below) says that he "may have joined the Monomoit families who went at that time to Duck Creek (now Smyrna) in Kent Co., Delaware."
