After residing in Hatfield for two years, he removed to Springfield, like almost every householder, he was called into the service of his country against the Indians, and was actively engaged in the bloody and successful attack on their encampment at the falls in Connecticut River a few miles above Deerfield, since called Turner's Falls, in commemoration of the brave Capt. Turner who commanded the expedition.
From Springfield Mr. Foote removed to Stratford where his house lot of one acre was on Main Street, directly east of the old burial ground, near the present Congregational Church. This lot he conveyed in March 1680 to Benjamin Lewis, having decided to move with his family to Branford, where in February 1679 he was admitted "a planter" of the town and a "home lot" was granted to him, "on condition that it should have a tenantable house built upon it within two years, and that he come to settle amongst us or else the lot to return to the town again."
