    Notes:

    Lydia B. Brownson (citation details below) states that he drowned.

    From A History of Barrington Township and Vicinity (citation details below):

    He was a soldier at the taking of Louisburg, and unhurt, though in the thick of the fight. His family had slaves when living at Cape Cod. He moved from the Sherose Island lot to Shag Harbor and occupied part of Kendricks Island. His wife, Azubah Sears, was a sister of Mrs. Theodore Harding and of Josiah Sears another early settler at Shag Harbor. The name in the Return of 1769 is spelled Kenwick. Prof. Doane says, "Many of the names in this census are spelled carelessly or ignorantly." Documents bearing the signature of Solomon Sr., have Kenwrick. Anson Kendrick in a deed of 1770 signs Kincoruk. [...]

    Anson Kendrick lost his life in a shocking accident. His daughter Abigail (Mrs. Bradford) with her husband and two children were going to one of the Shag Harbor Islands to get birds' eggs. The boat was capsized on a bar and all were drowned but Mrs. Bradford, who succeeded in righting the boat and bringing her to the shore. When arrived home they asked her where the others were. She said, "They are in eternity." This was about 1815. A year or two before this, when the men of the place were all absent on militia duty, a privateer came into Shag Harbor. Anticipating a raid at night Abigail Bradford gathered the women of the place for defence, and when a boat was about to land, those on board heard her in a gruff voice giving directions to fire upon them, and immediately put off again to their vessel. In 1819 Mrs. Bradford married Thomas West of Liverpool, N.S., whom she reformed to sobriety by her self sacrifice, fortitude and energy.

    Notes:

    He was a cordwainer.

    As of 16 Dec 2018, ancestry.com's transcription of the record of his will and probate erroneously calls 2 Jan 1772 the date of his probate. But the eighteenth-century probate record that ancestry.com links to -- a piece of handwriting so elegantly legible it could be read from outer space -- clearly says that Josiah Sears made his will on 2 Jan 1772 and that it was probated the following 11 Feb. Whenever possible, always look at the original documents!
