His lands were laid out in 1685 at Westquadomset.

As early as 1672, he owned lands north of the Inman Purchase, near "Loquassuck", near Benjamin Hearnden. He also owned land in Gloucester, where several of his sons settled.[3]

He was a farmer, living “ in the neck,” on fifty acres of land, which, on Dec. 10, 1706, he deed conditionally to his two eldest sons, Judah and Jabez. To his son Daniel, he deeded “for love, etc., Feb. 18, 1710, a forty foot lot, a little north of Great Bridge, from the town over to Weybosset.” His will, proved Nov. 10, 1710, gave administration to the widow, Alice. The inventory of his personal estate amounted to about £78. His posterity is undoubtedly numerous, as seven of his children married, and his grandchildren numbered thirty-two. The information available is to fragmented to admit to a connected account of his descendents, but it has been drawn from many sources, and, being deemed reliable, is here given, not withstanding its incompleteness.[4]
