He came to Plymouth, MA from England aboard "The Mayflower". Love became a freeman (able to vote & hold land) and was a volunteer to fight in the Pequot War of 1637, but at that time, volunteers from his county were not needed. He raised his family in Duxbury, MA, volunteered for the milita under Captain Myles Standish and lived out his life in that town.
