Notes According to [1], William Arnold “had settled in Hingham (near Boston), Mass., in 1635, but followed Roger Williams in 1636 to Providence, where, along with John Green I, he became one of the founders of the first Baptist church west of the Atlantic. This William Arnold was the great-great-grandfather of Major-General Benedict Arnold (1741-1801), a famous figure in the Revolutionary War until malicious persecution by lesser men drove him into defection to his wife's Loyalist side.”
