November 1670 Ordered that Jon Stanhope do see that the minister's rate be duly paid and in case any neglect or refuse to pay their proportions to said rates when due he is appointed and impowered by the town to summons such persons before a magistrate there to answer for their neglect. In 1683 4 it was voted That whereas certain proprietors and inhabitants of the town have neglected to pay their proportions to the minister's rate and added to the evil by not paying the proportion due upon the two six months rates made since to the dishonor of God contempt of his worship unrighteousness to their neighbors as if they slyly intended they should pay their rates for them again and to the disturbance in and damage of this town after so much patience used and to the end this town may not longer be baffled In his majesties name you are therefore now required forthwith to collect by distress upon the monies neat cattle sheep or other beasts corn grain hay goods or any other estate movable not disallowed by law you can find so much of each person herein named so greatly transgressing the several sum or sums set off against each man's name.  /P/  The names of those persons as have taken the public stock of ammunition into their hands and have agreed to respond for the same in case that it be not spent in real service in the resistance of the enemy are as followeth - Jonathan Stanhope, Thomas Reade Sr., Samuel How, Daniel Stone, Corp. John Bent, John How, etc. /P/
This indicates the imperilled condition of the place Predatory bands were lurking about it. The woodlands were a covert from which the savage might suddenly sally and in whose dark forest retreat he might safely secure his prey. At any time the people might suffer attack. Their harvest, their homes, their households were alike liable to be devastated and swept away. But strong men were sent to defend them stout hearts were soon there and to a large extent these came from the town of Sudbury. Again and again were detachments sent from the place. Some of the soldiers for this service were under the command of Capt Samuel Willard In his journal he speaks of mustering at the town of Lancaster one day and moving on to Rutland the next of laying by in foul weather of marching back and forth through the country and of seeing and following the signs of Indians. The service spoken of was from July to August 1720. In the course of his narrative he speaks of William Brintnall being sick and of David How being lame both of whom he sent home. State Archives Vol XXXVIII pp 109 110 These two men were soldiers from Sudbury. Another commander under whom the Sudbury soldiers served was Capt Samuel Wright See p 170 On a muster roll of Captain Wright read in Council June 17 1724 are the following names of Sudbury men who had served for several months: Daniel How, Lieut Hugh Ditson, Corp Joseph Bennet, W Thompson, John Norcross Gcntl, Jon Stanhope, Isaac Gibbs, Daniel Bowker, Amnill Weeks servant to Samuel Stevens   

A Particular History of the Five-Year French & Indian War in New England: While the enemy lay in ambush about the fort Capt Phinehas Stevens the commander of the post and Capt Josiah Brown from Sudbury went out with about fifty men to a meadow, they became aware of the presence of Indians by the uneasiness of their dogs and rightly judged that they were waylaying a certain causey where they were to pass. Capt Stevens made his approach accordingly .As the English were cautiously proceeding, one of Capt Brown's men discovered an Indian and fired upon him whereupon the ambush arose and a sharp engagement ensued and with much obstinacy till several of the enemy had fallen and were dragged off by their companions. They then scattered in the neighboring woods leaving behind them one gun, eight blankets, a scalp, and other things. Capt Stevens lost none of his men in the fight but Jedidiah Winchell was mortally wounded and died about fourteen days after. David Parker ,Jonathan Stanhope, and Cornet Heaton were wounded also but recovered. Stanhope belonged to Sudbury. His wound was in the elbow which disabled him from labor and government allowed him a pension of four pounds per annum. About thirteen years afterwards he had a further allowance of one pound per annum in addition. /P/  They received he loss of no men but four or five wounded . They sent forty of off the the men to carry the wounded men  to the fort and the rest maintained the fight and stood them manfully.  After the fight was over they found where they drew off several dead Indians into a swamp. sent down a troop of men to guard Mr Doolittle and Dr Williams to cut  arm of one of their men [Stanhope?] that was sore wounded.
