Facts and Events
Torrey (New England Marriages Prior to 1700) gives his first wife's name as "Alva?", but since the first record of him in New England identifies him as a widower, there does not seem to be any basis for this.

Thomas Marshall married Lydia Angrom 17 Aug 1627 in Alford, Lincoln, England
Elizabetha Marshall, baptized 18 May 1628 Alford, Lincoln, England, daughter of Thomae. Marshall
Samuel Marshall, baptized 7 May 1630 Alford, Lincoln, England, son of Thomae. Marshall
Maria Marshall, baptized 14 Oct 1632 Alford, Lincoln, England, daughter of Thomae. Marshall
If Thomas Marshall the immigrant came from Alford, Lincolnshire, then it is possible that these records represent his marriage and first three children. If so, then not only his wife, but his children Elizabeth and Mary died before he arrived in New England.

'It appears that Thomas Marshall, a widower, came to New England by 1634, bringing with him a son Samuel.'

'ORIGIN: Unknown (but see COMMENTS below).'
'Given this association with Wheelwright and Hutchinson, we note the possibility that this immigrant [Thomas Marshall] also came from Alford, Lincolnshire. In the parish register for Alford, there is a baptism for a Samuel Marshall, son of Thomas, on 7 May 1630, which could be for the son of this immigrant [Alford PR 39]. There are many more records for Thomas Marshall in Alford which do not connect with Thomas Marshall of Boston.'
| Founders of Windsor, CT
| Windsor was the first permanent English settlement in Connecticut. Local indians granted Plymouth settlers land at the confluence of the Farmington River and the west side of the Connecticut River, and Plymouth settlers (including Jonathan Brewster, son of William) built a trading post in 1633. But the bulk of the settlement came in 1635, when 60 or more people led by Reverend Warham arrived, having trekked overland from Dorchester, Massachusetts. Most had arrived in the New World five years earlier on the ship "Mary and John" from Plymouth, England. The settlement was first called Dorchester, and was renamed Windsor in 1637.|
