The congregation had 226 members over the age of 10, all Native and listed by head of family, like Squaoppetan with 4, Samsson Waapnut with 5 and Paul Quoi with 3 family members each. Captain Thomas Tupper (1637/8-1706) of Sandwich, who assisted building a meetinghouse for the congregation, conducted the census.
