it" and the lead, meadow, orchard and swamp that surrounded it with the stipulation that Jose ph was to help Joshua build a house as good as John's. Joseph seems to have been the business man of the family, for, more that the others, his name is recorded in the buying and sellin g of land, and James Tisdale, his older brother, requested in his will that Joseph will overs ee and advise his son James, the executor of his estate in case of any difficulty.
As John Tisdale's house had been burned by the Indians, Joseph moved to Taunton. There he ke pt an "ordinary" that was known as Joseph Tisdale's Ordinary and Joseph was known as "the Inn holder." This designation occurs in the records for the sale of property, for example; on M arch 11, 1702 Eleanor Walker sold lands to Joseph Tisdale "the Innholder." The Ordinary beca me a rendezvous for soldiers during the Indian wars. A town license, dated November 9, 1713 , gave Joseph and his son both "the liberty to sell and retain all sorts of strong drink."
In April 1697 Joseph bought an estate from John Pole in the township of Taunton of "20 acre s more or less with all houses."
From "Meet the Tisdales".
