Kewper brought Captain Samuel Pike and his mate Cherub to meet with the Squire to discuss an arrangement. The Squire and Kewper were unaware that Pike planned to betray them. When the group encountered Ben, Polly and revenue officer Josiah Blake, Ben and Polly accused Pike of kidnapping the Doctor. The Squire had Blake take the two travellers away, ridding himself of "law and villainy".
The Squire and Kewper learned of Pike's plan to betray them and planned to take Avery's gold. When they found the Doctor, Ben and Polly searching for the treasure, they threatened the Doctor for the location of the treasure. At this moment, Cherub appeared, killing Kewper and shooting the Squire.
The injured Squire watched as the Doctor bargained with Pike, offering him the entire treasure if he would leave the village unharmed. The Squire admitted himself shamed by the Doctor's generosity.
