----- From _Massachusetts and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis (1885-1966)_, by Walter Goodwin Davis with an Introduction by Gary Boyd Roberts, Genealogical Publishing Co, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland, 1996, pp. 1:250-51:

He lived on his father's farm on the Ipswich river in that part of Salem which was known as Salem Village and later became the town of Danvers.

In 1683 he entered a serious Salem Village controversy by going on the bond of Rev. George Burroughs who was suffering what seems to have been a most unjust persecution on the part of a church faction which did not end until the minister was hanged in 1692. Buxton believed in the existence of witchcraft, as did most of his contemporaries, and was one of the accusers of Sarah Wildes on April 21, 1692, but before the year was out he himself was among the victims of the delusion which ended, however, before he was brought to trial.

The will of John Buxton was made April 15, 1715, and proved June 18, 1715. To son John, the thirty acres of land he now lives on, excepting the privilege of water for the mill and six acres of meadow. To son Joseph, twenty acres of my farm next to Samuel Goodale's, where he now dwells, and four acres of meadow on the west side of the river. To son Anthony, two acres where his house stands, three acres adjoining Benjamin Swinnerton's land, ten acres in the great pasture adjoining his brother Joseph/s land and four acres on the west side of the river in partnership with Joseph. To each of my sons Ebenezer, Benjamin, James and Amos, sixteen acres in the great pasture and two acres on the east side of the river. To sons Joseph and Anthony, my mills equally between them, they paying to my daughters £50. John, Ebenezer, Benjamin, James and Amos are to pay £3 apiece to my daughters. To daughters Mary Goodale, Elizabeth Fuller, Sarah Darling and Hannah Perkins, £10 apiece. To grandson Joseph Fuller, £5 when he comes of age. To daughter Lydia, £20. Residue to wife Elizabeth until her youngest son Jonathan comes of age, when he shall have one-half of the homestead until the death of his mother, when he shall have all. Executors: sons Joseph and Anthony. Witnesses: Joseph Hutchinson, Joseph Goodale, Jonathan Putnam.
