Daniel Hudson, son of Daniel and Ann (Joselyn) Hudson was baptized at Epping, Essex, England on July 30, 1620. 
Daniel came to New England about 1640, and was first of Watertown, Massachusetts. He was a mason by trade. He resided at various times in Watertown, Cambridge Village, Lancaster and Concord.  Tradesman often moved at various times as there services were needed in another locale.
His wife's name was Joanna (___) and they were married prior to 1648, when their daughter Anne's birth was recorded.. NOTE: A marriage record has not yet been found to confirm the relationship between Joanna (Daniel's wife) and Joanna White.
1642: Daniel was named in the will of his uncle Joseph Joselyn of Cranham, Essex. 
1647: As a mason he helped build the first school at Cambridge. 
1665: Daniel purchased a proprietor's right at Lancaster, Massachusetts and later became a resident.

In his will written on June 2, 1695 and proved on October 14, 1697 he names: 
"Daniel Hudson came to America about 1640 and first surfaces at Watertown,
Massachusetts.8He was named in the will of his Uncle Joseph Joslin, of Granham,
Essex, in 1642.9A mason by trade, Daniel helped to build the first school house in
Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1647. 10 In 1665, he purchased for L40, a proprietor's
right in Lancaster, Massachusetts situated on Gibson's Hill, from Major Simon Willard
and soon afterwards became a resident of that town. 11 In 1672 William Clemance Sr.
sold all his real estate in Cambridge and Billerica to Daniel Hudson of Lancaster,
Massachusetts with the provision that Hudson maintain Clemance and his wife Ann.
12Note that Clemance could well have been a close relative of Daniel Hudson's wife.(If
Daniel's wife were a daughter of Clemance she was not the daughter of Ann Clemance who was married 3 Apr. 1659 to Clemance as second wife, as Savage (1:408) tells us, and this leaves the possibility that the relationship was with Ann whose name is shown to have been Taylor at the marriage). 13In 1673, Daniel Hudson "of Concord, sometimes of Lancaster" purchased 20 acres of land in Lancaster from John Moore, deeding this tract in the following year when "late of Lancaster but now of Cambridge Village," to his son Daniel "who is about to be married to Mary Maynard, of Sudbury, daughter of John Maynard".14 On 6 Oct. 1690, Daniel Hudson, bricklayer, was admitted as an inhabitant of Charlestown, Massachusetts.15 By 1692 he had moved back to Lancaster, for in that year he and his two sons were ordered to take safety at the garrison in Lancaster in time of danger .16 On 11 Sept. 1697, Daniel and his wife Joanna, and two of their daughters and two of their grandchildren were slain by the Indians at Lancaster.17
His will dated 2 June 1695, probated 14 Oct. 1697 mentions wife Johannah (sole
executrix), and three sons Nathaniel, Daniel & William.18 An agreement connected
with the settlement of the estate is signed by Nathaniel Hudson for himself and for his brother Thomas; by Samuel Waters, in right of his wife Mary; by Jacob Waters, in
right of his wife Sarah; and by James Atherton, in right of his wife Abigail.19
On 18 Mar 1691/2 Daniel Hudson & his two sons were ordered to repair to the
Roper garrison house in Lancaster in time of danger however "at present they may
continue in their own house it having a good Fort." Daniel was a brickmaker who dug
clay for his bricks beside the highway a few rods west of the bridge over Roper's Brook. When the Indians did attack on 11 Sept 1697, both Daniel Hudson & Ephraim Roper's garrison houses were burned by the Indians.20
DANIEL married JOHANNA. Johanna died on 11 Sep 1697 in Lancaster, Worcester Co.,
They had the following children:22
