Joseph was a proprietor of Hingham in 1637, afterwards of Watertown.
Death 16 Feb 1676 or 16 Dec 1676 Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts
His brother Thomas ("sometimes woolen draper in London") settled at Hingham, Mass, then Dorchester and finally at Watertown in 1651. His brother Thomas died in 1668, apparently childless, as he left his estate first to his widow Magdalen and after her death to his nephew Thomas (Joseph's son) who was living with them. It is possible that the younger Thomas actually married the widow afterward. 
Joseph died 16 Feb 1676/7. Inventory of his estate taken 3 March 1676/7
↑ He was admitted freeman May 1645.12 Henry Bond, Genealogies of the Families and Descendants of the Early Settlers of Watertown, Massachusetts, NEHGS, Boston, 1860.
↑ Death found both 16 Feb and 16 Dec is a result of the re-numbering of the months, related to the new calander, In the old style, December was the 10th month, February the 12th month, so a date of 16 12 1676 might be read either way.

Ralph Dean Clark Richard Wilder of Shiplakehttp://ralphinla.rootsweb.com/wildrich.htm Text: This page is a subsidiary of the author's Wilder Genealogy Page. Please visit that page for my research on the Wilder family in England. The author is of the opinion that the legendary English ancestry presented in the various published genealogies written by Rev. Moses Wilder and revised and updated by his descendants is incorrect. That legendary descent is unsupported by available documentation, and appears to have been constructed based on a lot of wishful thinking and a little correspondence with the most prominent line of Wilders in England at the time of Rev. Moses Wilder. One can only conclude that subsequent researchers have chosen to overlook Rev. Wilder's statement in his book the he had never viewed any English document, and left such study to future research. The author has done research in many English sources, and has come to different conclusions than other authors have presented. In fact, the present author is of the opinion that probably no such person as the legendary patriarch of the family, Nicholas Wilder, the warrior of Bosworth, ever even existed !
