He came from England to the Maryland colony in 1668 at the age of 21. He had attended Cambridge University. His transportation, along with 11 others, was paid for by Thomas Trueman, Esq.

He settled on the Brandywine Creek which was south of the Patuxent River and near the village that he named after his hometown, Nottingham. He married Martha Trueman at the age of 32. His estate was named Magookin which was near Baden, Maryland and became quite wealthy with his large tracts of land, slaves and tenants.
