Here he settled, was admitted freeman on May 13, 1640, and was made selectman in 1646. He deposed in June, 1665, aged about 60 years (Essex co court files). By occupation he was a farmer. On July 14, 1664, he purchased of John Smith 9 acres of land in Milton, which he gave to his son Joseph Belcher for a marriage portion (Suffolk co deeds 4:204a). On Jan. 6, 1657-8, he obtained a lease of the Salter farm in Braintree, from the estate of William Tyng of Boston; and on Jan. 15, 1666-7, Gregory Belcher and others bought the Salter farm for 1900, Belcher's interest beight one-eighth (Suffolk co deeds 5:229). On Mar. 26, 1670, Gregory Belcher and his son-in-law Alexander Marsh purchased the iron works, with 200 acre of land, in Braintree; and on May 18, 1671, the same parties bought 40 acres in Braintree plain of Henry Crane (Suffolk co deeds 7:172).

He died Nov. 25, 1674. The inventory of his estate, showing a total of 629-5-0, was presented by his widow, Jan. 29, 1674-5 (Suffolk co probate). His wife Catherine survived him, and died in the spring of 1680. Her will, dated Sept. 3, 1670, proved July 20, 1680, gives to son Josiah a cow "if he molest not my son Moses in his present dwelling and possessions"; to son John a cow and a horse; to daughters Elizabeth Gilbert and Mary Marsh and granddaughter Mary Marsh, son household effects; "to son Moses (who hath all his life carried himself so dutifully to myself and his father) the great bible and the whole house and land he now possesses which I declare his father gave him." Sons Moses Belcher and Alexander Marsh executors.

On July 9, 1680, Josiah Belcher of Boston entered a caveat against the probate of any will said to be made by his late mother, Catherine Belcher of Braintree, widow, deceased, until he be present (Suffolk co probate). It does not appear, however, that any contest was made over the estate. Children: Elizabeth, Josiah, John, Moses, Samuel, Mary, Joseph.
