He was married, January 5, 1670, to Sarah, daughter of Abraham and Sarah (Clement) Morrill, of Salisbury. In his last years he carried mail between Newburyport and Portsmouth. He was killed by Indians in an attack on Amesbury July 7, 1690. His estate was settled by his widow, then living with her second husband, in 1699. It was valued at two hundred and fifteen pounds, a fortune in those days.
Their children were: Jacob, Sarah, Thomas, Abraham, John Rowell, Job, Hepzibah, Judith and Aaron. Sarah married (second), July 3, 1695, Onesiphorus Page, and (third), May 27, 1708, Daniel Merrill. She was received in the Salisbury Church in 1698, and had three of her children (who were probably then minors), John, Job and Judith, baptized in 1699. Her last years were passed in South Hampton, New Hampshire, with her children.
Sarah's father, Abraham Morrill, was born in 1586 in England. He married on 10 June 1645 in Salisbury, Massachusetts. It is not known for sure when Abraham Morrill emigrated to New England, however he may have come on the ship Lyon in 1632 with his older brother Isaac. it is thought that he was young because he did not sign the Oath of Allegiance to the King, and only adult men were required to sign the Oath. Abraham living alone in Cambridge, Massachusetts, paid taxes in 1634. Being a young man in 1632 and a property owner in 1635 puts his birth year at around 1615.
