However his obituary stated he was "born in the beginning of the year 1640" and died "in the 88th year of his age" having "retained his Reason to an uncommon degree, until his last Sickness, which lasted but a few Days."

He married at Yarmouth in 1659, to Deborah Sears who was born in Yarmouth, Sep 1639. Deborah was the daughter of Richard Sears and Dorothy Jones. Zachary Padock and his wife were mentioned in the will of her father, 10 Mar 1667.

Zachary served on a coroner's jury to investigate the death of a child of Nicholas Nickerson 24 Oct 1667. He was assessed for King Phillip's War, Yarmouth 1676. He was granted 50 acres at Seaconnet, part of Tatamanuck's land 7 Jul 1680, and later that year he was again on the grand jury.

Of his sons, Ichabod, Joseph and Nathaniel moved to Nantucket Island where there name often appeared as Paddack. Of these sons and their sons, many were mariners and whaling ship captains.


"Yarmouth, co. Barnstable, 1 May 1727. This day died here Mr Zachariah Paddock, in the 88th year of his age, was born in Plymouth in the beginning of year 1640. He retained his reason to an uncommon degree, until his last illness, which lasted but a few days. He was married in 1659 to Mrs. Deborah Sears, born in this town, and now survives him, having lived together about 68 years, and by her, God blest him with a numerous offspring, especially in the third and fourth generations, having left behind him of his own posterity, 48 grand-children and 38 great grand-children, and of this latter sort no less than 30 descendants from his second son. The old gentleman, his wife, one of his sons and his wife lived for a considerable time in a house by themselves, without any other person, when their ages computed together, amounted to over 300 years. Mr. Paddock had obtained the character of a righteous man, and his widow, now near fourscore and eight years old, is well reputed for good works." ("N.E. Weekly News Letter)
