Notes:

Anthony's date of birth is an estimate based on the date of his first marriage. He died sometime between 23 Apr (when he added a codicil to his will) and 4 Jun (when the will was probated).

He was a freeman at least as early as 1633, and was probably well educated. Though there is no direct evidence of this, he held positions on committees to reform the laws in 1636 and 1645, the nature of which strongly suggests a good education.

He and his wife were numbers 4 and 5 of the founding members of the Scituate church, on 8 Jan 1634/5. They stayed with Reverend John Lathropp (Lothrop, Lathrop) and the church when it moved to Barnstable.

From "Great Migration Begins" he held numerous official positions:

  • Constable for "ward of Scituate" 1 Jan 1633/4 and continued in same position 1 Jan 1634/5
