He sailed with his father for New England in the ship Nicholas, alias the New Supply, arriving in July 1638, visited his brother Henry at Black Point, and returned to England in Oct. 1639. He made the voyage to New England again in 1663, staying with his brother until Dec. 1671, when he went back to England.

In 1672 he published New-England's Rarities. He also wrote An Account of Two Voyages to New-England of which two editions (1674 and 1675) were published in his lifetime.
