      William resided at Boxford. In 1676, during King Philip's War, he served as a soldier in Capt. Joseph Gardner's company from Salem. It may or may not have been during this service that he lost the arm referred to in his father's will. For his military service, he received a grant of land in the township called “Narragansett, Number 3,” later incorporated as Amherst, N.H. The portion in which his grant was situated later became Milford, N.H., where his son Stephen and a line of descendants lived for many years. William, who was made a freeman July 21, 1685, was a selectman of Boxford for several years.
