  • Notes 
    • He first appears in Newport, Rhode Island, on a list of freemen in 1638. He appears to have been a Baptist. His name appears on no passenger lists nor in any Boston records. Stephen Farnum Peckham (citation details below), noting his associations with supporters of Anne Marbury Hutchinson, believes he may have come with the Hutchinson party on the Griffin.
