There is no evidence he ever married or had children. Born c 1615 died after 4 Jun 1646. Savage conflated him with the man of Providence. James Elston erroneously stated he was father to Priscilla. Neither is true. His origins and parents are unknown according to Robert Charles Anderson in the Great Migration Series.[1]
