Ensign William, so "styled" about 1706 as leader of the local military company, lived on his land at Cotchpinicut (Old Harbor), but also received land at Monomessett (Nickerson's) Neck from his father. He was a tanner and carried on that business for many years. There was not only a demand for boots and shoes, but also for leather pants which nearly every man wore at work. He left the tanning house and business to his sons Caleb, Nathaniel and Eldad.
