Biography

Edward Hilton, the eldest son, received the major share of his father's property. He was active in the affairs of his community, taking his father's place on the plantation, maintaining the garrison to defend it, and interesting himself in local matters. He was not prominent in politics, and we find few traces of him in the larger concerns of public life; but he was a highly respected citizen and a soldier. He seems to have been much in the company of his father, as their names appear together on many documents.He was elected Selectman of Exeter, New Hampshire. He maintained a tavern license (1689).

Edward's will was proved 10 July 1699. He proved for his wife Ann, gave S.W. half of lands to s. Winthrop and a quarter each to s. Dudley and s. Joseph, £15 each to daus. Jane Mattoon, Ann, Mary and Sobriety Hilton.
