Biography* John settled at Barnstable, and his talents soon made him one of the most respected individuals in the country. He was employed in a variety of trusts, which he discharged with fidelity and skill. In June 1689, at the session of the General Court at Plymouth, he was admitted as a Freeman. For twenty years he was Representative to the General Court; for 13 years Chief Justice in the Court of Common Pleas and first Judge of Probate; and was commander of the militia of the county for 18 years. In 1706 he was chosen one of his Majesty’s Council, and continued to sit at that board for 21 years until his death in 1727. This was a combination of offices and a union of legislative and judicial powers, sometimes allowed in the same individual in the early stages of our settlements. The successful discharge of such varied employments is an evidence of his capacity and integrity, which, joined to his wit and affability, secured him great influence. Such was his sagacity and prudence that he often composed differences both in church and state. He had fine talents for conversation; his pleasantness and affability made him agreeable; his wit and humor often enlivened the company which he improved by his wisdom. He was strict and exemplary in the performance of religious duties, and was remarkable for his humility and modest worth among Christians, as for his intellectual powers and active services among his fellow men.2,1 
Biography John was left in possession of the estate in Barnstable where he moved in 1686 when his father returned to Scituate.5

Biography* When John was about ten years old the family emigrated to new England, and his father settled at Hingham. The family residence was at ‘Otis Hill,’ where John lived until after his parents’ death. In 1668 he, or at least a John Otis, is mentioned on the Hingham records as being a landholder; it is also recorded that he took the oath of fidelity there in 1662; although in 1661 he had moved to Scituate. There he bought of Deacon Thomas Robinson the house on the south of Coleman Hill, formerly the residence of Gen. Cudworth, and resided there. In 1663, according to thte records, he bought for 69 pounds a certain portion of another property from Mr. Hatherly. In 1678 he went to Barnstable and settled a land called Otis farm, opposite to Hinkley Lane, near the Marshes, West Parish. There he left his son John, and returned to Scituate, where he died.
     His monument was in the old burying ground. ‘Meeting House Lane,’ one mile south of the harbor, and in 1845, although broken and defaced, ws still legible. His will, dated Scituate 1683, gives to his eldest daughter, Mary, the wife of John Gorham, and daughter of Hannah and Elizabeth 50 pounds each; houses and lands at Hingham and Barnstable to John, Stephen, James, and Job; to Joseph and Job house and lands in Sciutate after after his mother’s decease. He is said to have been in King Philip’s War.
     John seems to have been of a rather pugnacious disposition and not easily amenable to the strict laws of the Puritans, so that one finds frequent references in the old records to his various legal troubles as indicated in the following:

Shurtleff’s Records of Mass.:
     In 1651, 22 May, at the general court of Boston, ‘John Oatis of Hingham pr’ferd a petition for the abatement or remission of a fine imposed uppon him by a Court at Boston, for his resistance of the constable, which the Court thinkes meete he should pay.’
     Boston Court, May 14, 1654. ‘In answer to the petition of John Oates for remitt’n of a fine imposed on him, the Court thinkes meete to graunt his request, excetp 30 shillings, 20 whereof belong to the county and 10 to the constable, so as the petition’r, on a Lord’s day, after exercise, or on some publicke assembling of the congregation make like full acknowledgement of his miscarriage, as he doth in this petition, by word or wrting, or else shall pay, within one six weekes, five pounds, as a fine to the county.’
     General Court at Boston, May 26, 1658. ‘In the case of Jno. Tucker and Anne, his wife, plaintiffe, agt. Jno. Ottis and Jno. Mansfield, defendnt, the court on hearing of all the evidenced produced in case, they found for the defendant costs of court, i.e., one pound nineteen shillings and fower pence.’

Plymouth Court Records. Vol. V., pg. 81.
     ‘At the Court holden at Plymouth the 29th day of October, 1671, John Otis, for selling syder without order from the court, was fined the sum of 40 shillings to the Collonies use, or to appear to answare for the same.’
     Also, in the same Court records, his name appears several times as a member of grand jury--’Grand Enquest.’.2 
Biography John, whose posterity is very numerous, married Mary, daughter of Nicholas Jacob of HIngham, 1653. In 1661, he settled in Scituate, on the south of Colman's hills. In 1678, he went to Barnstable, and took ujp 'the Otis farm,' near Hinckley lane. He left at Barnstable his eldest son John, and returned and deceased in Scituate 1683. His monument is in 'the old burying ground in Meeting-house lane': it is broken and defaced, but legible at this time.
     In his will, dated at Scituate, 1683, he gives 'To eldest daughter Mary, (wife of John Gowin), and daughters Hannah and Elizabeth 50 pounds each. Houses and lands at Hingham and Barnstable, to John, Stephen, James and Job. To Joseph house and lands in Scituate, after his mother's decease.9
Biography In 1655, in accordance with a promise made to him at the time of his marriage in 1649, his father conveyed to him all of his real estate in Hingham, including the home on North Street. John Otis and his family resided there until 1661, when he purchased from Deacon Thomas Robinson a house, formerly that of Gen. James Cudworth (his second home in Scituate), on the south side of Colman hills in Scituate, and here he removed from Hingham. The site of this house is now [1938] covered by the railroad track of the Scituate Sand and Gravel Company.10
