He was one of the founders on 3 May 1687 of the Congressional Church at Briston, and was elected grand juryman, sealer of leather, and selectman of Bristol. Capt. Nathaniel Reynold’s will called him of Bristol, and it was dated 7 Oct 1706 and proved 3 Nov 1708. He mentioned no wife, but named five sons: Nathaniel (eldest) of Boston, John, Peter, Joseph, and Benjamin (youngest) Reynolds; daughters Sarah wife of John Fosdick of Boston, Mary Woodbery, Hannah wife of Samuel Royall of Boston, an d Ruth Reynolds; his sister Mary Sanger of Watertwon; his house in Boston, his farm and house in Briston, and his 500 acres in Quenepank (Quinapaug).
