Daniel was deported to New England with his brother Joshua in 1653.1  (The Hinshaw/Henshaw book lists the date of deportation as 1654).5  See: The Story of Joshua and Daniel.  

He married Mary (Bull) Allen1 [Mary Bull1, Mary Ball4].  Mary, daughter of ?? Bull or Ball "of Bury St. Edmund in Co. Suffolk, and widow of 1) Robert Pond and 2) Nicholas Allen of Dorchester in New England".1  She was born about 1636.1,2,7  

Mary had first married Robert Pond, by whom she had children:

Mary Pond, born Jul 14 1657.
Martha Pond, born Apr 13 1660.
(possibly also) Sarah, married Desire Clap.
When Robert Pond died, Mary secondly married on Jul 3 1663 to Nicholas Allen or Ellen, who also later died.4,7  

Mary died Nov 19 1719, aged 83.2,7,8
