Daniel became active in the fishing business on the Herring River, now the Cape Cod Canal. He also participated in financing a town mill. His house was located near the center of the present Sandwich village in what is referred to as the heritage area.
By 1655 Daniel and other prominent citizens were involved in serious religious dissension, opposing the church authorities in Plymouth. Daniel was fined for supporting newly arrived Quakers. He refused to take a loyalty oath aimed against Quaker sympathizers. The scenario became ugly with public whippings and brandings. Disgusted, Daniel left the Puritan denomination of his father and grandfather, which had become as intolerant of others as the Church of England had been towards Puritans and Separatists themselves. He joined the Quakers who in 1658 established a Friends meeting at Spring Hill in Sandwich, the first in America. His brothers, John Jr. and Stephen followed later.
Daniel and Hannah both died about the time their youngest child was born, leaving many orphans to the care of extended family. They had eleven children.
