    Notes:

    Name:
    Matthew Fuller arrived in Plymouth before 26 October 1640 when he sold land lately purchased of John Gregory. He probably brought his wife Frances and children, born in England, with him. In 1642 he was propounded a Freeman, served as juryman, and was assigned ten acres of land near Thurston Clark. In 1643 he was chosen sergeant in the newly established "military discipline." he was called "of Plymouth" in a deed of gift of two acres on 16 march 1648/9 from Samuel Fuller.

    Exactly when he moved to Barnstable is unknown, but on 5 October 1652 the Curt approved his election as lieutenant of the Barnstable militia. He was admitted a freeman on 7 June 1653, and in that year served as deputy from Barnstable to Plymouth Court. On 20 Jne 1654 he was appointed lieutenant, under Capt. Myles Standish, of a 50-man quota to fight against the Dutch at Monhattoes (New York), but receipt of news of peace between England and Holland on 23 June 1654 made the expedition unnecessary. On 2 october 1658 he was elected a member of the Council of War, and in 1671 became its chairman. On 17 December 1673 he was appointed Surgeon General of the colony troops; he also served as captain of the Plymouth Colony forces during King Philip's War.

    He was one of the first physicians to settle at Barnstable. He took a public stand on the side of the unpopular Quakers and received a fine for it. He lived in the northwest corner of Barnstable at Scroton Neck, but also owned land in Falmouth and Middleboro which had been granted to him by the colony for distinguished service. he died a wealthy man for the times.
