In 1632 he went with his father to New England. While at Boston, Massachusetts, he was ordained deacon of the first church, of which John Cotton was minister. At Ipswich, Massachusetts, he received in 1638 a grant of 120 acres of land. He practised medicine in New England, and was reputed a good anatomist. He married there Susanna, daughter of Nathaniel Ward, pastor of the church at Ipswich. At the end of the first English Revolution of 1648 he returned to England. He engaged in a correpondence with Richard Baxter -- they had their differences although were largely in agreement; "The Real Christian" was his most full fledged critique of Baxter, and Baxter replied to it in print the following year with his "The duty of heavenly meditation reviewed by Richard Baxter at the invitation of Mr. Giles Firmin's exceptions in his book entituled, The Real Christian."
