    • "An early but not original signer of the New Haven compact; sold his house and homelot to John Punderson, June 1659, and in May 1660 it was doubtful he should remain in New Haven; was on the eve of moving, May 1661; so d. soon after settling in Hartford. The religious preamble to his will indicates that he was thoughtful and tolerant to a degree unusual in his generation." [Donald Lines Jacobus, citation details below]
