Nicholas Davis, of Barnstable, able to bear arms 1643, when he is last on the list, so that possibly it may be and error, as Hamblen put him into a list of inhabitants admitted after 1660. He may have been of Newport,1638, and there learned the strange policy of toleration in religion. In Sewel, I, 388, it is said he favored the Quakers at their first meeting.
