"Some time in the course of this year (1628), Walter Bagnall, called Great Walt, established himself upon Richmond's' Island, with- in the limits of the ancient town of Falmouth."
"Winthrop, under 1631, says, he lived alone upon the island three years, and had accumulated about <£400, mostly in goods, by his trade with the Indians, whom he had much wronged. He and a companion (John Peverly?) were killed by an Indian sagamore, called Squidrayset, and his company, Oct. 3, 1631, who burnt his house and plundered his property."
"Bagnall had been a servant to some one in Massachusetts, but when or with whom he came to this country is not known."
