Biography

AnecdoteOn the adivce of Roger Williams, John with others purchased the Aquideck Islands and gave all of his personal estate to his son Enoch. This later was called RI. Both families belonged to a religious sect other than the predominent Puritans andthey were a follower of Anne Hutchinson who moved to RI and later Long Island, NY where she was killed by Indians. and at the time the Puritans were persecuting all followers of other religious faiths. This sect became so in disfavor because oftheir beliefs, that they had to leave Boston.

Roger Williams advised these families of other religions to move to RI. John Briggs and 28 others purchased Aquidneck Island from the Indians where he was one of the orginal founders of Portsmouth, RI and is frequently mentioned in its earlyhistory. There were 3 or 5 very early Briggs Families in New England and one of them Clement has been studied extensively in a 3 volume family history.

John was a signer (by mark) of the compact of settlement of Aquidneck, Portsmuth Town Records. He was mad Freemand March, 1639. In March 1642 his vote was suspended until he had given satifaction for his "offences". The ban was removed September1642. The "offences" were not known. But he was thoroghly purged, as he took a conspicuos part in the town government. He was Juryman, Constable, Town Councilor, Surveyor, Special Commissioner, and Deputy to the General Assembly of the Colony. Thelatter post held coutinuously for many years. The Town was often indebted to him for moneys he had advaced them. he was charged with seeing that the inhabitants were armed and that they kept their arms in good condition. When the Colony orderedthe Town to purchase powder and shot, John bought if from Roger Williams. He lived on the "highway that leadeth to the windmill". At his huse, Town meetings were often held. In 1678/9 John gave his son John half a share of his estate, and gave hisson Thomas a quarter. Vol. 19 #587 of Family Tree Maker
