Joseph's first residence (about two months after marriage) was at the south end of the village on the west side of the principal street,—described in May 1700 as "at ye south westerly end of ye town," while in June 1714 "The lower end of the town" was said to begin at Joseph Munson's. He retained the ownership of these 11 acres with the buildings, but acquired a new homestead of 28 acres where he was living at the last, and which became the homestead of his son Joseph. This place appears to have been within the bounds of the First Parish, as the deaths of Joseph and three of his children were entered in the First Church records.
