Eliakim Wardwell (Sam's son) - can you flesh him out?

Despite some effort I have found little on Eliakim Wardwell excepting the history surrounding his father's witchcraft execution, his being farmed out to Daniel poor until about 1708 (his majority) and suddenly he shows up about two years later marrying Ruth Bragdon of York. Except for the Indian Chief story involving his wife, I can't find anything until his will written in 1749, probated 1753. What did this guy do between 1710 and 1753? Incidentally regarding the Indian Chief story, I found this among York court records as represented on line:

Could this be her in the York courts?
Full Name WARDWELL, RUTH
Def/Plt DEF
Location Index Number 609353 Court SESS Volume/Page 6-355 Box/File
Cause FORNICATION Year 1711 Month 1

I have their first child, Mary, as being born in 1712.
