FROM RICHES TO RAGS 1780-1840 by Guild Nichols is the following;

The North End had become a haven for gamblers, criminals, whores and often drunken and violent sailors. The area around North Street (known then as Anne Street) was the most notorious, lying just one block in from the harbor. It came to be called "Black Sea" and the "Murder District." Boston policemen stayed away out of fear for their own lives.

He first married Sophia Hersey and had one son, Charles.
