He also built, (by contract) the 2d. water mill in the town of Plymouth 1676. In 1673, he was allowed by the Town ‘30 acres of land on the 3d. Herring brook, on condition that he erect a Corn-mill on that brook and keep and tend the mill fourteen years.’ That mill was built 1677, (now [1831] Jonah’s mill, so called).

Charles died intestate, his estate divided 1684, ‘to Charles, oldest son, (surviving) land at 3d. Herring brook, and half the corn-mill and three fourths of the saw-mill there: To Thomas, land also on 3d.
