A first settler in Lancaster County, he arrived in 1645 and built a home at the head of navigation on the Western Branch of the Corrotoman River where he is buried. Once Lancaster County was formed in 1651, he served as the first burgess to the Virginia House Of Burgesses. There is a monument at the site of his grave.
