Eldad Kingsley, of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, married, as her 1st husband, 9 May 1662 "or shortly thereafter" at Providence, Rhode Island, Mehitabel/2 Mowry, daughter of Roger/1 Mowry and Mary Johnson, with whom he had 6 children.1,2 With six others he was an organizer of the Baptist Church of Rehoboth (at Swansea).3 On a list of men who made advances of money to sustain the government during Philip's War, his sum being £0.9.4.4 His father's will, 2 Nov 1677, left his entire estate to his widow, and then to Eldad upon her death, and left John French, a grandson who had served the elder Kingsley for six years, out of the will.5

By leaving his father's service for that of his grandfather, he had previously forfeited his first son's right to a double portion. Eldad Kingsley, recognizing that six years of service deserved proper reward, agreed with John French, 8 Mar 1678/79, that French should have 50 acres of upland in the North Purchase, which sometimes was the land of the said John Kingsley, and the meadow and one half the common belonging to said upland, in full satisfaction for his service.5
