Governor Stone ordered him to seize the public stores at Patuxent, but he was captured in the fight which followed. Afterwards he started another insurrection, and was made governor, July 10, 1656, as a reward for his alleged services in behalf of the proprietary government. In December, 1660, he was deposed, for having opposed his patron, and in December, 1661, was found guilty of treason and sentenced to be exiled, but later was pardoned and compelled to pay a small fine. In 1681 he was banished for participating in seditious practices, and a fine of 140 lbs. of tobacco was imposed on him.
