    Biography
    • Rhode Island was not settled until 1660. The government at Boston claimed the Island "by right of conquest" after the Pequot war and annexed it to Massachusetts. Nothing was done towards settling the Island until 1660, when Dr. John Alcock of Roxbury purchased the Island from the Grantees and set about disposing of the lands there to prospective settlers. It was chartered as Rhode Island in 1663.  The first settlers were, according to town records: Thomas Terry, Samuel Dearing, Duncan McWilliams or McWilliamson, John Rathbone, Simon Ray, William Tosh, Tormut Rose, William Baker, David Kimball, William Cahoone, Edward Vose, Nicholas White, William Billings, Tristram Dodge and John Acres.
