    He was one of the richest men among the colonists and a merchant; he had an excellent education and was engaged in legal study in London during several terms of the Court of Chancery.

His first appearance on the records of New England is as a grantee of lands in Dorchester, Mass., Sept. 1, 1634; he subsequently received several other large grants of land there. His name invariably appears on the records with the prefix "Mr." for he was of the highest social standing. He joined the church in Dorchester soon after his arrival and on Sept. 3, 1634, was admitted a Freeman of Mass., and immediately became prominent in public affairs, being chosen Selectman Oct. 28, 1634, when it was "agreed that their shall be Tenn men chosen to order all the affayres of the Plantation, to continue for one yeare & to meete monethly according to the order Oct; 8, 1633."
