Notes

  • Robert was admitted to full church communion in Ipswich Feb. 22, 1673; was made freeman March 11, 1673-4; tithingman, 1677; took the oath of allegiance, 1678; was made quartermaster Jan. 1, 1684.

    He was a soldier in King Philip's war, and took part in the Narragansett expedition, receiving three pounds for his services in that campaign.

    With several other of the leading men of Ipswich he opposed the oppressive measures sought to be enforced by Governor Andros. and with them was made to smart under the punishment inflicted by the magistrates under Andros' influence. The penalty visited on him was that he should not bear office, and "fined twenty pounds money, pay cost, five hundred pound bond for the good behavior one year."

    Although condemned "not to bear office," he was confirmed as quartermaster in Captain Thomas Wade's company in 1691, was elected deputy to the general court in 1692, and had a seat appointed to him "at the table" in the meeting house in 1700.
