Nathaniel’s father’s will left him a large amount of property, and the family home on the corner of Washington and Milk Streets in Boston. He lived in Boston until about 1681 when he and his family removed to Bristol where he built a home on the northeast corner of Bradford and Thames Streets.
Nathaniel had signed with the Proprietors on 27 Aug 1680 for a thirty-second part of the Mt Hope Lands, and was an original settler of Bristol. 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). An inventory of his estate in Boston, located in the south end, was dated Boston 3 Nov 1708 and totalled £794 5s 6d.
