    From his surname it is presumed that he came from Wales. He was Dover town clerk from 1686. He was killed in the capture of the Walderne Garrison. Everything known of his children comes from a notebook passed down through the descendants of his son Thomas (d. 1718), plus traditions among the descendants of his daughter Eleanor.
