Thomas, 18 May 1653, a. soon; and d. as Farmer thot. in Charlestown,
13 July 1678. Perhaps, as he came in the same sh. with Stanley and
his w. he may be s. of the first Thomas by Porter call. sea capt. but we
kn. nothing more of him, exc. that his mo. in her will, 1670, names him,

at Boston, or Cambridge a yr. or more, but was an orig. propr. and among
first sett. at H. Date of his a. is not ascert. but it was a. 1667. His wid. Dorothy,
