He owned property in Lyme & Saybrook very early in the history of the colony.The first mention of his name is found in the records of 'A Perticular Court In Hartford, Conn.' [5Mar] 1656. He was in Weathersfield, CT (probably on a temporary visit) and was arrested: among the 'names of those presented for smoaking in the streets contra to law' appears the name of 'Balthasar de Woolfe'. The court fined him ... and as tradition has it ... he paid his fine, lit his pipe, & went out ! He was also a member of the local militia.

He lived in Wethersfield, CT in 1664, & then moved to Lyme, New London, CT in 1668. He became a member of the town train band in 1678 (along with sons Edward, Simon & Stephen).

He was married to Alice PECK in 1645 in Guilford, CT. Alice PECK was born in 1625 in England. She died in 1689 in Lyme, New London Co., CT.
