At Barnstable, his house stood next to that of John Scudder, who was probably a brother of his wife. (Miss Caulkins' Hist. of New London, edition of 1852, p. 57.) Feb. 25, 1647/8, he was chosen a townsman of New London and in the recorded vote, it is stated that the four so chosen served the previous year, so he must have been a townsman in 1647. This would indicate that he was in New London as early as 1646. New London was then called Pequot. He is mentioned in two letters from Gov. Winthrop to his son John at Pequot. In one of them dated Aug. 14 1648, he says "Your neighbor "Lothrop" came not at me," (as I expected), to advise about it," (the selecting of a minister)." HIs house at New London was the third in order from that of John Winthrop, Jr., and was located northwest of it, and his name is one of the first eighteen to whom lands were assigned on the east side of "the great river' (Meaning the Thames). Almost at once he was appointed to places of responsibility and honor. He was one of the three judges for a court of minor cases When in 1657, Uncas routed by the Narragansetts had taken refuge in the fort at the head of the Nahantick and was there besieged, Lieut.

Although he removed to Norwich about 1668, his farm "at Namucksuck on the west side of the Great River," remained in the family until 1735, when his grandson, nathaniel, sod it.

He was arrested with many of his congregation, Apr. 22, 1632. he wife died while he was in prison. After this event, his children visited the Archbishop, who took pity on them, releasing their father, provided he would go to New England. He arrived at Boston, Sept. 18, 1634, in company with 32 of his congregation; others of it having preceded him. (Atwater's New Haven, p. 39.) He immediately located at Scituate, where he was warmly welcomed and a house for his family of "meane proportions", was quickly built by willing hands. Mr. Otis describes it thus: "The walls were made of poles filled between with stones and clay, the roof thatched, the chimney to the mantel, of rough stone and above of cob work, the windows of oiled paper and the floor of hand sawed planks." Of the beginnings of his work, there is a record by Dr. Stiles of Yale. In October, 1639, he with a large number of his congregation removed to Barnstable, bringing with them the crops they had raised at Scituate. He was a strong man and an independent thinker, holding views far in advance of his tie, which he fearlessly proclaimed in both the old and new worlds. It has been said of him: "No pastor was ever more beloved by his people and one ever had a greater influence for good." He is accounted one of the great religious fathers of New England.
