    He was a worsted comber. He first appears in the record at Taunton in 1680. He came to Tisbury in 1706, when Matthew Mayhew deeded to him a tract of land in Chilmark "to give incouragement to Cloathing." His parentage is unknown.

    "There is a fantastic legend about him to the effect that his mother, a beautiful English girl was captured from a ship by some Algerian pirates and she became the consort of the chief. A son was born who bore the name of Hamid and when he grew up his mother told him the secret of his birth and bade him escape to her own people, which advice he followed. Those who wish to believe this story will probably do so." [Charles Edward Banks, citation details below]
