  • Notes 
    • "A militant Quaker, he was constantly in difficulty after Mass. took over the gov. [of Maine]. In 1653 he was disenfranchised for entertaining travelling Quakers, and in 1655, charged with blasphemy, he was in danger of losing his life, but the Gen. Ct. decided that he was not so guilty that he ought to die. Elected a Dep. to the Gen. Ct. in 1656, he was not allowed to sit and the town was censured for choosing him."
