Sep 1643 He was for a brief period at New York (Throg's Neck), but Mr. Winthrop records under this date, that the Indians set upon the English who dwelt under the Dutch, and killed "such of Mr. Throckmorton's and Mr. Cornbill's families, as were at home." He further says of the English settlers: "these people had cast off ordinance and churches," and "for larger accommodation, had subjected themselves to the Dutch, and dwelt scatteringly near a mile asunder. Some that escaped the Indian attack went back to Rhode Island.
