    "Giles, born 25th of 1st month, 1647; married Anne Lawton," p.41. "...was married the 26th of Third Month, 1669, to Anne, daughter of Thomas Lawton of Portsmouth," p.43. "was, evidently, the most prominent man of his time in that township [Portsmouth]," p.44. Served in numerous public positions.

    This source would cast doubt on the death date included on this page, as the writer cites, among other events, that in 1705 Giles "and his brother Ebenezer were chosen with Governor Cranston and others, as a committee on the part of Rhode Island to settle the long continued and vexatious question of boundary line between that Colony and Connecticut."
