Removed to Middleborough between 1689 and 1704. He claimed to have been the first man to enter the Narragansett Fort during King Philip's War in 1675, aged 27 years at that time. He received a grant of land in what is now Amherst, New Hampshire, for this military service. It may have been he who was shot through both legs while in Quebec in 1690 under the command of Captain William Raymond, his uncle.

    John (Rayment). In 1670 he was involved in a somewhat disgraceful episode at the house of Robert Hebberd, and in the testimony in the resulting court action occurs the phrase "John Rayment's cousin Mary Cook came in." As he had no first cousins on his mother's side, this may be a clue to the marriage of his aunt Elizabeth Rayment. He served in King Philip's war and is stated to have been the first soldier to enter the stockade in the Narragansett Fort fight. He. m. Martha ----- about 1676, and d. in Middleboro June 5, 1725.
