Was a resident of Rowley, Massachusetts 12 May 1663 when he bought land in Rowley of Elizabeth Starret of Haverhill. … His land was in what is now known as Bradford. On 20 Feb 1668, at the first town meeting in Merrimac, afterwards Bradford, he was chosen an overseer of the town. … On 17 May 1683, the General Court … established "a foot Compani and one of Horse," commissioning and appointing … Mr. Benj. Kimball, Cornet." "Ben. Kimball" and others signed, 9 Jul 1690, a notice that they "are ready & voluntarily offer our selvis to serve God, our King & Country in ye designed Expedition for Canada." This would have been the first expedition to take the fort at Louisburg, in Nova Scotia. His house was in the west parish of old Bradford, not far from the ancient cemetery. He was a wheelwright and a farmer. … His inventory showed that he was well off for the times. The total amount of the estate was £1060.7s. Among the assets was a one-fourth interest in a saw-mill in Haverhill, Massachusetts, near the Amesbury line … This interest was handed down in the family for several generations. The gravestones of Benjamin and Mercy Kimball may still be seen in the cemetery in Bradford.
