On April 26, 1727 Josiah purchased Lot 19 of South part of town, Turkey Hill area for 50 pounds.
In the early records of Lunenburg, the Town Clerk's entry of March 4, 1731/2 described the layout of a road in the town that went through several lots including the one owned by Josiah Bailey and at the "fore Side of his new dwelling houfe (house)." At the March 5, 1732/3 Annual meeting, Josiah Bayley was chosen as one of the Fence viewers for the town.

At the legal meeting of freeholders and other inhabitants of the town on March 3, 1734/5, Mr. Josiah Bailey was chosen as a surveyer of the highway.
Josiah Bailey was voted and chosen as one of the tything men at the Sept. 15, 1735 legal meeting of the freeholders of the town. On March 6, 1737/8, Josiah was chosen as constable.
March 13, 1738/9 Josiah was chosen as Surveyor of Shingles. May 19, 1740, Constable Josiah Bailey received the alloted payment amount of 21 pounds =9 shillings =3d.

At the June 2, 1740 meeting of the Freeholders, they voted that they abate 4 pounds-16 shillings-3d of Josiah Bayley's rates who was the constable for the year of 1738.

At the Sept. 29, meeting of 1740, Josiah Bailey was put on the committee to build the North End School House.
Several more times over the next few years, he served as a surveyor of fences, shingles, and highways.
In 1750, Josiah Bayley was chosen as one of the town selectmen.
In 1752, he was chosen again to serve as a town selectmen. He served a moderator of the May 25, 1752 meeting of freeholders. At that same meeting, he was chosen to be part of the committee to Seat a New Meeting House and it was voted that the New Meeting House would be seated upon the Real Estates toward the building of the House. After those with real estate were seated, then those that had no real estate could be seated according to their pay and that all polls had been paid.

At the May 13, 1755 meeting, Josiah was chosen to serve as a member of the committee to provide a house to set idle persons to work in (interesting!).
