Have found birthdates including 1635, 1637, 1638, 1642.... and locations as Eastham and Plymouth. Son of Deacon John Doane. 1m to Mercy Knowles on 15 Feb 1667. 2m to Mary Smalley Snow, the widow of John Snow, after 1692. He settled within the limits of Eastham. He took the oath of fidelity before Mr. Freeman in 1670, and was admitted a freeman 05 Jun 1684. His name appears in Truro 17 Jun 1690, and is in a list of the legal inhabitants of Eastham in 1695. He was a suveyor of highways in Eastham in 1691 and again in 1692. He made his will 17 Dec 1699, (proved 19 Apr 1700) and desired his wife's children, by her former husband, John Snow, of whom there were nine, to share equally with his own children, after the decease of his wife Mary. DFA book lists his children as Patience, Apphia, Hezekiah, Thomas, Ebenezer, Nehemiah, Patience and Ruhama.

The following is from the Doane genealogy: "On March 3, 1662-63, he and three others were fined twenty-five shillings each for trading liquor with the Indians, and he and Thomas Ridman were fined fifty shillings each for permitting the Indians to have liquor in their boats, it appearing that one of the Indians was drunk thereby." On October 29, 1669, he was before the court for "horribly slandering and belying his neighbors: at Eastham and was fined "the sume of twenty shillings for telling two lyes about the same." June 6, 1678, he was again before the court to answer to the complaint of "Jawannum, late wife of James Pequin of Billingsgate, as suspected by her and Nicholas, to have been an occasion of the violent death of said Pequin, her husband."

From FAG Member #47226970:

His inventory was taken 5 March 1699/1700 (Barnstable Co. Probate Records, 2:105). Chances are he died in February 1699/1700.
