He was "working ye forge" in 1656, the year that the Taunton works began the manufacture of iron, and his name appears on the books of the company down to 13 June 1690. He was listed among the heads of families in Taunton in 1675, and held the office of surveyor in the same year. In 1661 John Turner purchased form Joanne Millard of Springfield, former wife of Thomas Coggins of Taunton, and Bathsheba Coggins a parcel of land in Taunton on the Two Mile River containing six acres "and it extends to the streame below the wast at the forge house."
