See Hutch. II. 197.
THOMAS, Watertown, b. early in 1591, came in the Griffin, 1633, if we might so infer from the fact of his tak. hix o. as freem. 14 May 1634, when Gov. Haynes and Gov. Brenton, besides Cotton, Hooker, and Stone, passeng. in that ship were adm. But that infer. would be wrong, for in Col. Rec. 95, is a report sign. by him and two other gent. for sett. out the bounds betw. Watertown and the new town, 6 Mar. 1632, and in July 1633, he was appoint. admor. of Ralph Glover, while Cotton and fellow passeng. did not arr. bef Sept. next, so that he must have been here in 1631, and he serv. as a merch. at Southampton, Eng. as Bond relates, and here as rep. 1636-44 exc. 42, was active in trade, first at Medford, aft. at W. but was induced to rem. to the Vineyard a. 1647, where he was propr.'s Gov. and preacher to the Ind. above 33 yrs. d. 1681, six days only bef. being 90 yrs. old. It is indistinc. pronounc. by tradit. that first w. h. d. in Eng. had been Martha Parkhurst, and sec. was prob. brot. with him, Grace, wid. of Thomas Paine, of London, and by her he had Hannah, b. 15 June 1635; Bethia, 6 Dec. 1636; and Mary, 14 Jan. 1640.
It is not kn. that he had any s. but Thomas wh. he, as b. of the. former w. brot. from Eng. but some uncert. is felt as to the relat. of f. and I do not concur with Bond, 857, in mak. Jane the last w. of Thomas the elder, but think her wid. of the s. nor do I believe that it was the s. wh. was, in 1647, chos. by Thomas Paine, then 15 yrs. old, as, with his w. Grace, guardians for him. THOMAS, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. serv. with his f. at the Vineyard, being the first min. bef. went to Eng. m. Jane Paine, perhaps d. of Grace, w. of his f. had Matthew, a teacher of much celebr. in the Ind. cause, wh. d. 1710; Thomas, wh. was a judge; and John, bef. ment. He was on board of that ship of wh. Garrett was master, from Boston to London in Nov. 1657, with Davis, Ince, and Pelham, young scholars, the hope of the country, fellow passeng. never heard of, so proper. lament by Gookin, as in his Hist. Coll. may be read. He sail. from B. the same day in ano. ship for London. His wid. Jane m. Richard Sarson.

JOHN, Sudbury 1640, an orig. propr. freem. 1664, was one of the petitnrs. for gr. of Marlborough in 1656, and d. 10 Dec. 1672. He had two ws. if not more; by first [[vol. 3, p. 186]] was b. John, but of what date is unkn. and, perhaps, others; he m. says Barry, 1646, Mary Axdell or Axtel had Zechary, b. 7 June 1647; Elizabeth 26 May l649; Lydia; Hannah, 30 Sept. 1653; and Mary, 3 Aug. 1656. Hannah d. prob. young, as she is not nam. in his will of 4 Sept. 1672, in wh. he calls John eldest s. but makes w. with Zechary excors. calls Elizabeth w. of Joseph Graves; and Lydia, w. of Joseph Moore; and the youngest d. unm. but she m. Feb. 1674, Daniel Hudson of Lancaster, and d. in 1677. Perhaps the first w. was d. of Comfort Starr, and the sec. may have been m. a doz. yrs. later than Barry tells.

I think, 1690, tho. the rec. says sen. when his f. was alive, and hav. once sworn in 1685, needed not to go through the solemnity again, yet it was, perhaps, thot. good to swear double in those times. He d. 15 May, 1731, and his wid. d. 10 Jan. 1740.
JOSEPH, Marlborough, youngest s. of the sec. John of Sudbury, m. 1707, Elizabeth Price, had Persis, b. 1713; Elizabeth 1716; and Benjamin, 1721. His w. d. 1732, at Worcester.

He d. 28 Apr. 1688, but his will of 9 Feb. preced. was kept back until 11 June 1691, perhaps to avoid the Andros jurisdict. upon pro. business. It names the w.

ROBERT, Stratford 1686, a scotchman, came in the Henry and Francis, a sh. of 350 tons, charter. by the laird of Pitlochie, as Whitehead, in Hist. of Perth Amboy tells, or in the Caledonia (by ano. rep.) a man of war of 50 guns, to transport covenanters releas. from the tolbooths of Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Sterling, on condition of transporta. to the colonies. No little of history interest attaches to this colony that land. their precious freight. at Perth Amboy. McEwen hims. wh. by tradit. is deriv. from Dumfries, explains: "In June 18, 1679, I was in an engagem. in Scotland, at Bothwell brigg, then of the age of 18 yrs. The 5th of Sept. 1685 we set sail to come to America, and land. at Amboy 18 Dec. and 18 Feb. foll. I came to Stratford." Here he was a tailor, made leather breeches for men, stays and mantys for women; and he says he m. 20 June 1695, Sarah Wilcockson, d. of Timothy, as the rec. says, noting the m. of 2 June, and of b. of two first ch. his own writ. agrees very near. with John, 20 or 23 Sept. 1697; and Elizabeth wh. he calls Betty, 7 Nov. 1699.
