His house, built prior to 1665, stood west of "Island Woods", and the farm he owned is still owned and tilled by his descendants (1884). He married Mary Fairbanks., eldest daughter of George, and this was the first marriage ceremony within the territory of Medway.

And the following year he got leave to "land a dam on the common land on the brook", and "to flow the common land so far as shall be convenient for a mill at all times forever." Joseph Daniell had become the proprietor of the old mill site, "the place where Peter Woodward's stood."
