  6. Daniel migrated to Virginia, in the company of his father, sometime before 1630. After periods of residence on the Virginia plantation, London and again in Virginia with his second wife, his Puritan leanings led him to move his family to New England. He arrived in Boston on 20 May 1644 and lived out the rest of his life in service to his adopted colony of Massachusetts. Among the offices he held were Deputy of the General Court, Colonial Assistant, Captain of Militia and, later, Major General of the colony.
