He m. Seeth Gardner, d. of Thomas, bapt. at Salem, 25 : 10: 1636. After his death she m. (2) John Grafton, as appears by the following record : "John Grafton and Seeth his wife were married 1 : 10 mo: 1659."'?]

The inventory of his estate was taken 28 May, 1659, by John Poor and Richard Prince; the amount was £189 17s.; charges due John Gardner, £35 7s. pd. In 1659 (Nov.): "This court doe appoynt Thomas Gardner administrator to the Estate of Joshua Conant who dyed intestate in England and is to be accountable for said Instate." (County Court Records.)
