He was one of the 54 proprietors of Hampton in this state in 1638, and passed the remainder of his life in that town. He was a Quaker and was shamefully persecuted because of his religious faith, being compelled to pay exorbitant fines.

Genealogical and Family History of ME: Captain William Marston immigrant ancestor was of ancient English family whose various branches bore coats-of-arms and achieved distinction.
