Around 1770, he built a two-room house at the corner of Main and Hill Streets and in 1774, his enlarged house became one of the best in the village. He was the first residential lawyer in the Saco River community and lived here until 1778. He was a representative to The First Provincial Congress and was appointed as King's Counsel for York county. He moved to Massachusetts where he served on the Massachusetts Supreme Court. He authored the first history of Maine, The History of the District of Maine in 1795. He was elected governor of Massachusetts in 1807 and re-elected in 1808." Historical Marker in Biddeford, ME.
