He is stated to have first settled in Ipswich MA, which then included, indefinitely, the territory outside of the present limits of that town. He was one of the first settlers in Hampton, NH., going there with Rev. Stephen Batchelder (father of Deborah Wing who married John Wing of Sandwich and the ancestor of the perkins family through Henrietta Child who married Ira Perkins, father of Edwin E. Perkins), in 1637. He was made a Freedman in 1640. His name is found in the Grand Jury, and on trial juries in Hampton. As that place prior to 1657 was decided to be within the limits of NH, He sold his estate in Hampton in 1650 and bought land in what is now Topsfield MA, on the southern border, where he spent the rest of his life. He was a large landholder and was prominent for his enterprise and wealth. He died on Feb. 19, 1697-8. He married Mary Foster and had 14 children. Mary Foster came from England (Wales?). She was descended from Alfred the Great from Scottish kings and was related to every king and queen at that time. No records of birth and death.{Signed his will "paybody"}
