Job and his brother James arrived by 1635. Their parents arrived somewhat later, and Job joined them in Portsmouth before returning to Boston around the time of his marriage in the 1640s. He seems to have moderately successful until about 1665, when he returned to Rhode Island in somewhat reduced circumstances. He had two children in Boston, but there is no further record of either.
