From the Coe-War Memorial by Levi Elmore Coe, 1897

" 'He built a store at the West End, (Milford) whre he lived and became a well-known business man of the town.'    He was in May, 1661, one of the three men appointed by the magistrate to make search for the regicedes Whalley and Goffe, and their return on the precept after three days, was that they had made diligent search, and so easily satisfied the authority. - The judges Whalley and Goffe remained concealed in the cave at West Rock from May 15th to June 11th.

Thomas Trowbridge recommended Nicholas Camp, for Sheriff to Gov. Andross, as follows:

    'There is one Mr. Camp of Milford, a man of good estate, and many with us doe think him a fitte person, but leave it to your Excellency's discretion.'

He was deputy to General Court 1670-1 and 2.  In his will dated 31st Dec., 1705, he mentions wife Mehitabel, eldest son, Samuel, Joseph, Mary Peck, wife of Joseph, Sarah Baldwin, wife of Daniel, Abigail treat, wife of Robert, and John Camp."
