He often served as juror, and was the constable of Eastham in 1661 and 1693. In 1701 and 1702 he was one of the Negative Men. In 1664 he was appointed one of the Receivers of Excise for Eastham. In 1664 he was appointed one of the Receivers of Excise for Eastham. In 1668 he was of the Grand Inquest and in 1669 he was a Justice of the Select Court. he represented his town in the Colony Court in 1684 and 1685, and in the General Court at Boston in 1693, 169, and 1702. He was a large landholder and was quite extensively engaged in farming. It is understood that his homestead was near that of his father. Mr. Doane was of the same religious faith as his father, and a member of the First Church of Eastham. He doubtless was buried in the old Town Cove burial ground."
