John's father willed him 50 acres of land at Hatteras and 50 acres at Chicamacomico. For some reason about 30 years before he died John returned to England for a short while. Possibly to transport more people to America.

JOHN left a will, proved 1795, Hyde Co. Will Book 1-23 pg 253, names his wife and children.
