Brief biography

"Like his father, he was a person of considerable consequence, both in church and town affairs ...He had lands granted him by the town and acquired other tracts by purchase, so that he became possessed of a good estate in lands and other property. According to the inventory, his total estate [1712] was of the value of more than five hundred and fifty pounds."

From "The Doane Family" by A.A. Doan, Vol. I, pp 26:

He went from Plymouth to Eastham with his father's family in 1645. He settled in that part of Eastham now known as East Orleans. He was a prominent man in the affairs of the town and church. He was a selectman each year from 1691 to 1696; a juryman in 1677, 1686, 1687, 1689; a surveyor of highways in 1667, 1673, 1699,1700, 1704. He was a deacon of the First Church for many years, probably succeeding his father. He was an extensive landholder, the Eastham records showing many grants to him nearly all of which were within the limits of the present town of Orleans.

One of his children, evidently the eldest, was accidentally drowned in a well at Eastham, and an investigating jury was impanelled Sept. 22, 1667.

He was buried in the old Town Cove burial ground where a small slatestone still legible marks his grave, and bears this inscription:

Will of John Doane

In his will dated May 18, 1678, inventory taken May 21, 1686 and sworn by Abigail Doane May 29, 1686, he named his "loving wife," daughter Abigail, sons John, Daniel and Ephraim, and granddaughter Margaret Hicks, and left the remainder of his estate to "all my sons and daughters". He described himself in the will as "aged eighty and eight or there about" and in the inventory he was said to have died February 21, 1685/86, "aged about a hundred years" - a typical overstatement of age which occurred in those times.

  • Constance Hopkins (baptized May 11, 1606 – October 1677), also sometimes listed as Constance. She was probably born in Hursley, England since her baptism record is there along with older sister and younger brother. Constance was the second daughter of Stephen Hopkins, by his first wife, Mary. Some believe she was named in honor of Constance (Marline) Hopkins. Constance, at the age of fourteen, along with her father and his second wife Elizabeth (Fisher), accompanied by brother Giles, half-sister Damaris as well as two servants by the name of Edward Doty and Edward Lester were passengers on the Mayflower on its journey to the New World in 1620. Along the way her half-brother Oceanus was born, the only child born on the Mayflower journey. Her headstone marker, placed in 1966 by descendants, states in part “Wife of Nicholas Snow, Eastham’s first town clerk 1646 – 1662”.
  • Constance married Nicholas sometime before the Division of Cattle which occurred May 22, 1627. Nicholas came to Plymouth on board the ship Anne in 1623 and was made a freeman at Plymouth in 1633. The inventory of Nicholas Snow's estate made at his death lists a wide variety of cooper's and carpenter's tools; this may indicate his trade. He was town clerk at Eastham and held several other local government offices.

  • John G. Hunt wrote in an article published in The American Genealogist, Vol. 42: ORIGIN OF THREE EARLY PLYMOUTH FAMILIES: COLE, COLLIER , AND CLARKE " . . . proved by the will of Zaccheus Cole of St. Olave, Southwark (Surrey England), citizen and grocer of London, dated 16 Nov 1630 . . . In this will the testator named his mother, FRANCES, his brothers Nathaniel, John, and DANIEL COLE, and appointed his brother, Job Cole, executor. In New England the will of John Cole, dated about 1637, refers to his brothers Job Cole and Daniel Cole; to sister Rebecca and to Eliza Collyer and left legacies to each of Master Collier's men." This is the evidence that the mother of Daniel Cole is Frances (unknown) and that his father whose name remains unknown had died prior to the date of the will.
  • It was Monday Dec. 20,1694 when Daniel die. Daniel was 80 years old when he pass away. Three brother Job, John and Daniel Cole came to Plymouth Mass in 1633 on the ship " Mary and James" with 190 passengers. William Collier, merchant in London came with the Cole brothers, Job Cole worked for William Collier, James Cole of the hill could also be related to the Cole brothers. Some books say he was a brother but he could be a cousin because he is not mentioned in Zaccheus's will.
