He received a grant of land in 1675.

After the Narragansett War he returned to Wells and had some of his tax abated, with others afflicted by the war.

He was one of the constituent members of the church with John Wheelwright and ten others.

He died before 1716, when his heirs signed as proprietors of the town.

He removed from Wells for a time, and was of Ipswich, Mass. in October, 1683, when he sold to Thomas Wells of Amesbury, Mass., one hundred acres of upland and ten of meadow, in the town of Wells, bought of Francis Littlefield and Peter Cloyes.

He did not sell all his land in Wells, for a deed dated May 3, 1713 to Daniel Baston, his son, from the other heirs, fixed the title of one hundred and fifty acres of upland and ten of meadow. This deed is signed by James, Gershom and Hannah Baston (Boston), Samuel and Dorcas Stewart, Sarah Boston, George Butland of Wells, county York, Benjamin and Mary Preble of York and Stephen and Abigail Wellman of Lynn, Mass.
