of Boston call. the mount, afterwards Braintree, now Quincy. In 1639
or 40 he is first ment. in Conn. at the same time with Thomas, jr. wh.
may be the freem. of 18 May 1642 in Mass., there left by his f. whose
d. is early heard of, tho. exact date is not gain. His wid. Margaret was
very resolute and capable, and after two or three yrs. rem. with all her
ch. exc. Thomas, and Ann, to Springfield, there d. 28 Aug. 1684. She
had nine ch. and it has been absurd. said, that all were brot. from Eng.
Of most, this is true. Ann, wh. m. 29 Apr. 1642, Robert Chapman of
Saybrook; Mary m. 26 Nov. 1646, Joseph Parsons; Thomas; Nathaniel;
Lawrence; and perhaps Samuel; were b. in Eng. but our side of
the water may claim, prob. Sarah, m. 20 July 1659, John Scott; Elizabeth
m. 15 Feb. 1670, as his sec. w. Miles Morgan; possib. Hannah, wh. d.
25 Jan. 1662, unm. and certain. John. THOMAS, Weymouth, was
possib. the freem. of 18 May 1642, but next yr. certain. rem. to Rehoboth,
there d. June 1649. His will, by careless statem. in Geneal. Reg.
IV. 282, said to bear date of 8th of that mo. but also on same day to
be brot. into Ct. gives valua. inform. a. his ch. Jonathan, to wh. he devis.
his ho., his eldest d. whose bapt. name is not told, w. of Thomas Williams;
Mary, w. of Nathaniel Harmon of Braintree; s.-in-law (perhaps
mean. s. of his w.) Nicholas Ide, and his s. Nathaniel. From find. no
ment. of him after 1649 at R. I suppose, confus. of him with Thomas of
Norwich was easy. THOMAS, Norwich, 1660, s. of Thomas the first,
had been of Hartford, and early after d. of his f. rem. to Saybrook, a. the
end of Oct. 1644, took u. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 20 Nov. 1640; Sarah, 26
Aug. 1647; Mary, 7 Feb. 1649; Thomas, 3 Mar. 1652, wh. d. 29 Jan.
1682, prob. unm.; Deliverance, Aug. 1655; Samuel, 9 Dec. 1657; all
bef. rem. from S. and at N. had Ann, Sept. 1660, the sec. Eng. ch. b. in
that place; Rebecca, Mar. 1663; and he d. 15 Apr. 1688. By will,
made two days bef. (req. by the insuffer. tyranny of Sir Edmund Andros
to be brot. to Boston for proof and rec., support. his retainers by the fees
of office), provis. for w. Elizabeth six ds. and only s. Samuel, is seen. Of
this name, in 1834, four had been gr. at Harv. four at Dart. seventeen
at Yale, beside six at other N. E. coll. of wh. most disting,. are Rev.
Daniel of Concord, b. at Springfield, Jan. 1715, Y. C. 1732, d. 11 May
1764; his s. Daniel, b. 1740, H. C. 1760, d. in the Prov. of New Brunswick
1806; Jonathan, H. C. 1763, Ch. Just. of the Sup. Ct. of N. B.
