1. Two men of this name attended the Assembly; the burgess for St. Michael's Hundred was identified as a carpenter.

2 His initial election to represent a St. Leonard's Hundred was ruled invalid because the hundred was not yet legally established and no writ had been issued for an election there. Bishop's election to represent Mattapanient Hundred was then reported.
