Arthur Miller portrayed him as somewhat younger than he was in real life. In real life he was about sixty years old. In the play he's more likely in his thirties or forties.
Abigail Williams was twelve in real life. Miller deliberately aged her up for the sake of the story.Source(s): In the Devil's Snare: The Salem Witchcraft Crisis of 1692 by Mary Beth Norton ; Timebends by Arthur Miller (his autobiography)

Playwrights don't usually write specific features for roles. They may provide an age and ethnic origin but not much else.
Miller's description is that he is a farmer in his 30's.
