He sold this property to Joseph Daniel in Dec 1660 and moved to Cambridge Farms in Lexington, residing on Hancock St. He was a wheelwright by trade, but was also much engaged in public service, particularly as a surveyor of land. He was one of the most prominent men in the settlement of the Farms, serving as precinct clerk and assessor; he was the first subscriber for erecting a meeting house there and the first named member of the church.
