The task of defeating King Philip was entrusted to Capt Benjamin Church of the Plymouth Colony. With a force of only eighteen whites and 22 friendly Indians, Capt Church fulfilled his mission and the war ended.

One of the brave men under Capt Church on this expedition was Jonathan Delano who married Mercy Warren, a cousin of Capt Church two years later. After the war Jonathan settled at Dartmouth, having right to 800 actes of land there which had been granted to his father. He was made a lieutenant in 1689.
