    THOMAS, Dorchester, 1630 br. of Israel, the first, came no doubt, in the Mary and John, next mo. in the fleet with Winthrop desir. adm. as freem. 19 Oct. 1630, and was sw. 18 May foll. constable by appointm. of Court, Sept. 1630, in the exercise of wh. office, Mar. foll. he commit. the indiscret. of solemnis. a mar. betw. Clement Briggs and Joan Allen, for wh. he was fin. L5, tho. some yrs. after it was remit. I hope the contr. of m. held good. Early in 1635 (after he had tak. for sec. w. Margaret, wid. of Simon Huntington, wh. says the Roxbury ch. rec. had d. on the voyage, of smallpox, bef. reach. Boston in 1633), the planta. of Conn. was project. by many people of Watertown, Newton (since nam. Cambridge), and Dorchester, and from the two latter the majority of ch. mem. rem. to found new sett. on the gr. river, as it wa call. but they were requir. to contin. undeer the jurisdict. of Mass. He was one of those, oft. rep. betw. 1639 and 48, not ment. later in my opin. (exc. that Windsor town, and ch. rec. mark his d. mean. some other person, 25 Mar. 1661) and liv. the resid. of his days at Windsor, wh. was the nam. giv. to the to Dorchester planta. How long this time was, is unkn. or what ch. he had, but as he was ens. 1636, and in 1640 made lieut. the freem. on the list of 1669, may seem to be a s. Hinman, 243, says he d. Sept. 1684, leav. good est. to ch. six by name; but as the names all agree with those of the ch. of sec. Thomas, I doubt not the other circumstances belong to him. The same conclusion is drawn as to John, wh. follows on the same page. For this first Thomas, from the Conn. rec. Trumbull, I. 83, as to distrib. of the sev. portions of Mr. Stoughton's childr. and his w.'s 27 Mar. 1643, I infer, that he d. late in 1642, and 42 yrs. earlier than Hinman's date. Yet it is remarka. that Stiles in Hist. of W. has utterly sunkt this first Thomas, one of the founders of his town, follow. Hinman inst. of the careful Hist. of Dorchester, wh. however he innocent. refers to.

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.
