      Excerpt from Connecticut, 1600s-1800s Local Families and Histories: "In 1640 he was an inhabitant and proprietor of the town of Dedham, Massachusetts. He removed to Medford, and was living there in 1652-59, occupying the water mill on the Mystic side of Charlestown, later Woburn. He moved to Cambridge, where he owned a house and eight acres of land east of the common. He sold his property there February 10, 1664, to Nicholas Wyeth and removed to Sudbury, where he leased Mr. Pelham's farm and lived until 1669. He settled finally in Framingham, where he built a house and barn, though he attended church in the adjoining town of Sherborn and was recorded as an inhabitant there January 4, 1674. During King Philip's war, February 1, 1676, his wife and several children were killed or taken captives. He held the office of selectman and was on various important committees before coming to Framinghan."
