Ensign Daniel (2) Tilton. He married Mehitable Sanborn on December 25, 1669. Her name is variously reported as Mehitable Shaw and Mehitable Weare. He was one of the first settlers of Hampton. He is usually spoken of as "Ensign Daniel" but attained his captaincy. In his youth, while on a vessel which was lying becalmed in fox Bay off the Maine coast, he and his elder brother (Lt. Jacob Tilton) were taken prisiners by the Indians. Their hands were bound behind them, but Daniel managed to cut his cords and released his brother, as well as a cabin by, captured at the same time. After a desperate conflict witht he savages, they escaped. So remarkable was the adventure that its history was celebrated in verse, a copy of which was published may years later in the "New England Register of Families" for July, 1848. He afterward held a commission of captain "in the military forces of Massachusetts Bay and commanded the Newbury Company" It is believed that he died at the siege of Louisburg, although another report states that he died at Cape Breton in 1745[1]

25 Dec 1669 Ensign Daniel Tilton married Mehitabel Sanborn [1]

Ensign Daniel Tilton resided in Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire[1]

This statement has led many people to search for such a stone in Hampton's cemeteries, but the statement is misleading. The author corrects himself in a later volume of his work, on pg.158. The actual marker is one of many family stones ringing Hampton's "Founder's Park," which was set up in 1925. A map of the park can be seen here. Sources

From The History of the Tilton Family, p. 67, 68:

"Daniel Tilton was a strong man in town matters and government. He built a block house on his property to protect his family and other settlers from the Indians. In New Hampshire Town Papers, Vol. 12, mention is made of Daniel Tilton's garrison at Hampton, April to September, 1696. This was the only strong-hold between Exeter and Hampton. History says that having a large family of stalwart sons they successfully defended themselves when necessary to do so.

"Daniel Tilton was an Ensign in early history, taking an active part in King William's War. In 1696 he was allowed £9; 14s; 3d for some public service. There is a deed dated 1714 which starts with the words "I, Ensign Daniel Tilton. He represented Hampton in the Colonial Assembly in 1693-95 and again in 1702, at which time he was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives. He was again elected a member of the General Assembly in 1709 and 1711-1714. Finally being very infirm he asked and was excused by the House from further duty (1714). He died February 10, 1714-5 (or perhaps 1716), in Hampton, where he was buried."
