About Hon., Capt. John Gilman

Excerpt from "The Story of the Gilmans and a Gilman Genealog......":He was fourteen when he arrived in Hingham, Mass., and it was ten years later when he located in Exeter, New Hampshire. He and his older brother Edward were in the lumber and milling business, but, after Edward's death at sea the entire management devolved upon John and he became at once a leader in Exeter. He was selectman for many years and received many important grants of land. When New Hampsire was separated from Mass. in 1680 he was Councillor for 3 years. He was also a member of the House of Representatives and in 1693 was elected Speaker. He is referred to as the Honorable John.
