  • Note: Matthew came to Massachusetts in 1640, and settled first at Plymouth, Plymouth County, where in 1642, he was granted ten acres of land. The erliest record of him however is dated October 25, 1640, when Matthew Fuller sells to Andrew Ring " his garden place Plymouth." He applied for admission as a freeman, September 7, 1642, but was not allowed to qualify until June 7, 1653. He was one of the leading military men of the colony. When the firt company was organized under command of Capt. Miles Standish in 1643, he was appointed Sergeant, and became Lieutenant, October 5, 1652. "At the General Court held at Plymouth, October 5, 1652, the Court doth allow and approve of Matthew Fuller for Lieutenant of the Military Company of Barnstable." On June 20, 1654, he was uieutenant under Captain Standish in command of fifty men, organized for the proposed expedition against the Dutch of New Amsterdam. This company was ordered to Rendezvous at Sandwich, Plymouth colony, June 29, to embark for Manonet, in the barque "Admenture,' to join the other English Colonial forces, but on June 23, news was received that peace was concluded between England and Holland and preparations for war ceased. On October 2, 1658, Lieutenant Fuller was elected to the Council of War, and was made chairman in 1671. In tht year too he was lieutenant of the Colonial forces in the expedition gainst the Indians of Sarconet. That he was a physician also and stood well in his profession, is shown by his appointment, December 17, 1673, as surgeon general of the Plymouth Colony troops and also of the Massachusetts Bay troops. He served as camptain of his company inKing Philips War, and took a distinguished part. As early as 1652, he served as deputy to the General Court and was "a man of sound judgement, good understanding, and great courage, faithful to his trusts, liberal in politics and tolerant in religion." He was in fact too tolerant for his day and too frank in speech to avoid trouble . . He was indignant at the persecution of the Quakers and publicly censured the law against them for which he was promptly fined, but the Court continued to confer offices of trust upon him. He was the first resident physician in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts.
