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. James Avery, Mr. Brewster, Samuel Lothrop and others, well armed succeeded in throwing themselves into the fort and aided in its defense. (See Lothrop Family, pp. 38-40.) 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.
