Joseph Dow's History of Hampton: CAPTAIN HENRY DOW
CAPTAIN HENRY DOW
In the disturbances which rent the province, he was ever found with the patriots. In command of his company against the savages, or as officer of supplies for the army, he was quick and skilful. In remonstrance against the usurpations of Mason, Allen, Usher and their fellows; in resistance to the unjust taxation by Cranfield (for which the latter ordered his imprisonment); and in his connection with Mr. Weare's mission to the king, he was fearless and firm.
On the 27th of March, 1701, Captain Henry Dow attended the council-board for the last time. Forty days later, he died. [see Genealogies-Dow (2).]
