In 1644 he was one of the thirty-eight Milford men who purchased the lands of Totokek (Branford), being one of the first settlers there. He also owned land in Fairfield. On November 4, 1647, he testified in the General Court at Hartford, that he had purchased shoes from Goodman Meges of New Haven for his wife. After wearing them for three days, they ripped open due to defectiveleath:: 1648 Milford, New Haven, Connecticuter. Goodman Meges was ordered to pay 10 shillings to any person who bought his shoes & complained about them. Meredith B. Colket, Jr. in "Founders of Early American Families..", p.204, says that Samuel Nettleton died in Branford, while Susan Woodruff Abbott in "Families of Early Milford, Conn." wrote that he died in Fairfield and his wife, Maria, died in Branford.
