  • He became blind in his later years, as appears from the old council records in the proceedings relating to his will. He died December 10, 1700, and his wife presented a will of his that disinherited his only son John, but it was proved that he had stated that "he could not help doing as he had done, for he was now blind and he must do as other would have him," and expressed his desire not to disinherit his son but to help him if he could. The will was set aside because of undue influence on the part of his second wife.
