William Daniel was Colonel of a Regiment in Scotland upon the restoration of King Charles II : Governor of the Garrison and Citadel of Ayre in Scot- land, and afterwards, by speciale command of his said Majesty, carried his regiment into Portugall ; where he was instrumental in obtaining the victory in the plain of Evora, against Don John of Austria, Spanish Gen- eral, 1663.

William Daniels died in Boston, leaving a will dated 1678, in which he names, his son John Daniels, who was his father's executor. The latter died September 1765, leaving a son Isaac Daniels who was, at that time about fourteen years old — and therefore born 1751. The Probate Court appointed John Crehore of Milton, Massachusetts, guar- dian of the person and estate of said Isaac Daniels, a "minor under 14 years of age, son of John Daniels of Milton, husbandman".
