Nathaniel, a Quaker, was one of the four who first asked for religious tolerance for the Friends in New England. In 1677, he having joined the Quakers years before, and had suffered much persecution from the Plymouth government, exchanged his house in Barnstable for land in Woodbridge, N.J.; moved family 1678 to N.J.

He was associate justice of Middlesex Co. N.J. in 1688, 1692, 1698 and in 1693 to 1705 he represented Woodbridge in the Provisional Assembly.

On the establishment of the Woodbridge Monthly meeting of Friends in 1706, he became a prominent member of the Society, and for 7 years the meetings were held in his house, until the completion of the meeting house in 1713, two months before his death.
