About Ambrose Gibbons

He was Steward of the Laconia Company and one of the founders of New Hampshire. He had perhaps been in America before at Gloucester, when he was sent by the Laconia Company as a factor or steward with Walter Neale. He reached the Piscataqua by 21 July 1630 and soon began the plantation at Newichawannock. He was still there in August 1634 and has been termed an honest capable and faithful steward, who knew better than his employer what the plantation needed.

In 1634 he was granted land at Sanders Point between Little Harbor and Sagamore Creek for faithful services. He retired there from Newichawannock. He was at Portsmouth in 1640. The next year he was at Oyster River, his home thereafter. He had land grants in 1652 and 200 acres near his home in 1654. He served as Associate 1646, 1647; and Selectman 1647, 1648. He Administered Darby Field's estate 1651. Lists 41, 321, 352, 353, 354abc, 355ab.

His will, made on his sick bed, 11 July 1656-9 May 1657, bequeathed his property to his Sherburne grandchildren, bypassing his daughter Rebecca.
