From "History of the Town of Gloucester, Cape Ann: Including the Town of Rockport" by John James Babson, Samuel Chandler published by Procter Brothers, 1860.

Robert Dutch had a wife Mary, and sons John, Robert, Samuel, and Benjamin, and a daughter Mary, born here. He bought land of John Coit, jun; which he probably improved in fishing and agricultural employments. In 1656, he sold to Edward Haraden his house and thirty acres of land on Planter's Neck, with the stage, and all appurtenances belonging to it; and twelve acres upon the Meeting-house Neck, with a barn and orchard; the whole comprising all his possessions in Gloucester. He afterwards lived in Ipswich, and was a soldier in the Indian war of 1675. In one of the skirmishes with the savages, he was wounded, beaten, stripped, and left for dead; but he recovered, and was soon joined and relieved by bis friends. He died before 1691.
