(c.1602–c.1676), came to Massachusetts about 1624, when he was evidently associated with Gorges, and engaged in commerce in the Bay Colony. He returned to England after the Restoration, and wrote A Briefe Discription of New England and the Severall Townes Therein (1660), probably in the interests of more rigid colonial supervision. He returned to Massachusetts as a royal commissioner (1664).
