Other NoteSubject of funeral sermon 23675. From New England, he had a post in Kelvedon from October 1647. He was still there in 1650, but from February 1651-2 he was probably an iterant minister prior to being approved by the Assembly. He held a post at Coggeshall by 1654, and was apparently ejected in 1662. He was licensed again to preach at Coggeshall, and became pastor of a congregationalist church that met in a licensed house. He died in December 1672 and was buried in Coggeshall.
