Captain Jonathan Bangs was a Selectman of Eastham three years and in 1674, 1676, 1682, 1683, 1687 and 1688 he was Deputy to the Old Colony Court: in 1692 he was Representative to the General Court at Boston. He was a military man and Capt. of Militia, and he always had the term "Capt." applied to him, while a shipmaster was not so often called captain. For him many other appellations were preferred to that of captain, such as "Mr." or "Dea." or "Esq."
