In the reorganization of Plymouth Colony's financial affairs in 1627, Timothy Hatherly became one of the four London Associates, and in the years ensuing figured frequently in colony business. He came first in 1623, returned to England, and came over several more times before settling permanently in 1634. He had a son Nathaniel in 1618 of whom there is no further record, and no other known children. His will leaves property to sister Eglin (Hatherly) (Downe) (Hanford) Sealis, her children and their families, and at least some of the Tilden children of his third wife Lydia.

    CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: "Mr. Hetherly and his wife" joined Scituate church on 11 January 1634/5 as members #15 and #16 [NEHGR 9:279]. After Rev. John Lothrop left Scituate and took his church with him, Hatherly was the leader of that faction in Scituate that invited Charles Chauncy to be their minister, in opposition to the faction headed by William Vassall, which invited William Wetherell [GMN 5:12-13]
