Thomas was Servant to Dr Samuel Fuller of Plymouth.

The Old Court Record of Plymouth, April 1649, records a complaint against Samuel Nash of Duxbury, that his land was not all fenced and his cattle had run loose. Thomas Simon of Scituate (age 49), Samuel's brother-in-law (having married Samuel's sister Elizabeth) testified that he helped Nash build a fence over two years ago, and that his son-in-law Gilbert Brooks assisted.

  1.   Family Records of JaAnna Nelson.
  2. No son Thomas is named in the will per the abstract on the page of Moses who is often, wrongly named as the father of this Thomas. To quote Source:Anderson, Robert Charles. Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1633, p. 1683, "There was a Thomas Symons in Plymouth by 1633, and several authors have attempted to squeeze him into the family of Moses Simonson, but there is no evidence that he belongs. The most egregious attempt in this direction was perpetrated in 1935 by Raymon Meyers Tingley, who fabricated documentats, including an alleged deposition made by Thomas, and managed to make Thomas both son and borther of Moses." (Source:Tingley, Raymon Meyers. Some Ancestral Lines, p. 371-2.) Savage makes the same error when he obviously copies from Deane's History of Scituate and says, "THOMAS, Situate 1646, s. of Moses the first, had Moses and Aaron."
