Balthazar Willix, whose name would indicate that he was of foreign origin (speculated as Flemish), was undoubtedly in Exeter as early as the beginning of 1640, as he was then awarded one of the smaller shares of the uplands. He was not a signer of the Combination. His name appears however repeatedly in the records at a later date, in his own bold and handsome chirography. In May, 1643, he was one of the petitioners to the General Court of Massachusetts to receive Exeter under their government. His name is not found in the records after 1650. In the month of May or June 1648, Willix's wife was robbed and brutally murdered on her way from Dover to Exeter. Whether the perpetrator of the outrage was ever brought to justice is not known. Willix did not remain in Exeter long afterwards, but took up his residence in Salisbury where he was taxed in 1650 and died March 23 1651. (Original family named Willech or Willechs (probably Flemish) changed to "Willis", "Willix" )
