September 3rd 1717, all the retailers of strong liquors were summoned to
appear before the court of general sessions to show by what authority they
retailed; therefore appeared " Maruis Williams, Jean Brown, Anthony Wright,
Barnt Symerson, Danial Lane, John Garrea, David Bisset, Cornelius Eyman,
Lambt Garritson jun., Benjn Bill, Jacob Johnson, Issac Symerson, Joseph
Bastido " thirteen in the whole county.

He was a road suveyor in 1709 and in 1720, and his land on "Boks Hills" (Bucks Hill) is mentioned in 1716.

Joseph seems to have left Staten Island soon after for in 1722 his cattlemark was given to Walter Dongan, he "having some time ago left this county."
Baptismal records show his presence as late as 1719.
