In 1654 he wrote a long letter to John Ferrar, of Little Giddings, Huntingdonshire, England, describing his recent exploration of the country to the south of Virginia. He married Sarah Offley, widow of Captain Adam Thorowgood, and before that of Captain John Gookin. He died before 1657, without issue.
