  • Notes 
    • Said to have been born around 1605, he was at Salem by 16 Jan 1637, when the town rejected him as an inhabitant. Despite that, the town granted him ten acres in 1638 and twenty more in 1644. By Feb 1647 he was at Rehoboth.

      He advanced the town money for King Phillip's War. He was a next-door neighbor of his brother-in-law Robert Fuller, but they disputed their common boundary for thirty years.
