THORNTON, EBENEZER, Boston, s. of Timothy of the same, m. 15 May 1721, Elizabeth d. of capt. Thomas Gilbert, had Elizabeth b. 4, bapt. 10 Mar. 1722; Experience, 6, bapt. 7 Feb. 1725; Timothy, 2, bapt. 5 Feb. 1727, whose s. Thomas Gilbert T. of Saco was sole perpetua. of this fam. in the male line; Lydia, bapt. 8 Sept. 1728, d. soon; Ebenezer, 27 Oct. bapt. 2 Nov. 1729; Gilbert, 23, bapt. 28 May 1732; and Lydia, again, bapt. 29 Mar. 1738; all of Mather's ch. He rem. to Watertown 1731, there his w. d. 10 June 1740; and he m. Mary, wid. of Matthias Coussens, d. perhaps of Richard Boylston, and d. 12 June 1750. JOHN, Newport 1651, in the list of freem. 1655. PETER, Boston, came in the Elizabeth 1635, aged 20, by w. Mary had Joseph, b. 5 Apr. 1647; and one or two more. His wid. brot. inv. 9 Feb. 1652, and evid. of a nuncup. will, by wh. all his prop. was giv. to her, to bring up the childr. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 57. 

ROBERT, wh. came in the Elizabeth 1635, from London, at the age of 11 yrs. was of Taunton, a carpenter; sold his est. there to the lady patroness Elizabeth Poole, and rem. to Boston, m. 13 Nov. 1657, Mary, wid. of Walter Merry, but went back to Taunton, there liv. 1677, and 8. THEOPHILUS, Yarmouth, s. of Rev. Thomas, b. in Eng. was of Malden 1674, where he took o. of fidel. was the yr. preced. assoc. with a party of pioneers for sett. at Worcester, but no [[vol. 4, p. 292]] more is heard of him. *THOMAS, Dorchester, freem. 3 Sept. 1634, Dr. Harris thot. came in 1630, but no ment. of him is found bef. 1634, and in very few yrs. he is heard of at Windsor, there was in good esteem, and had five ch. but only Samuel is found by rec. to be b. there, and that was 13 July 1645; and in 1647 alone, three ds. Thomas, Priscilla, and Ann. He was a tanner, or at least sold a tanyard to Elder John Strong. 

THOMAS, Stratford, of wh. very little is kn. exc. that he had Theophilus, b. there, 10 June 1651; and aft. 1653 no more is heard of him at Stratford, but he was rep. 1651. THOMAS, Hartford, a tanner, perhaps s. of Thomas of Windsor, had liv. at Milford, there m. 1674, Hannah d. of Nathaniel Farrand, had only ch. Samuel, wh. with w. Hannah are nam. in his will made 1694, tho. he liv. to 22 Sept. 1703. THOMAS, Yarmouth, came soon aft. the Bartholomew act of 1662, bring. w. and ch. not prob. all he ever had, but the name of his w. is not ment. Nor do I find the Univ. at wh. he was bred, or the liv. from wh. he was eject. At Y. he was as early as 18 June 1663, and a. 1694 rem. to Boston, where his s. Thomas had in 1677 join. with Mather's ch. and d. 15 Feb. 1700, aged over 90 yrs. Sewall calls him very near. 93. He was perhaps something advanc. towards sec. childhood, when call. by Cotton Mather, Jan. 1694, to testify how Margaret Rule was raised from her bed by an invisible force, to touch the garret floor, "lifted up from all that under her," as many be read on p. 23 of the London ed. 1700 of "More Wonders of the Invisible World" by Robert Calef of Boston. But the witness may have been his s. of the same name. Of his ch. we guess at the success. for the date of b. is unkn. and foll. Dr. Bond count. these seven: Ann, wh. m. Nathaniel Hall of Yarmouth; Mary, m. Judah Thacher, and d. 30 Nov. 1708, aged 68; Elizabeth m. Joshua Gee, of Boston, and next Rev. Peter Thacher of Milton; Thomas; Theophilus; Priscilla, wh. d. at 11 yrs. whether at B. or at Y. is not indic. by Mather, wh. (tho. he tells of the f. that he was "aged and faithful" adds not ano. syl. but) favors the youthful maid near the end of his book VI. with more than a half of one of the large fol. pages; and Timothy b. a. 1650. 

THOMAS, Watertown, adm. into the ch. 19 Aug. 1688, is by Bond, reput. s. perhaps of the preced. and one of the undertak. 1673, for sett. of Worcester. I find him at Malden in 1674, taking o. of fidel. and apparent. younger than Theophilus; yet no more can we gather. *TIMOTHY, Boston, merch. s. of Rev. Thomas, b. in Eng. and Bond strange. thot. he may have been eldest, tho. his earliest impress. was that he was youngest, freem. 1672, by w. Experience, perhaps sis. of the first John Brooking, wh. d. 23 Mar. 1694, had Mary, b. 2 Apr. 1674; Thomas d. young; Elizabeth 16 Nov. 1677; Timothy, 6 May 1681; Catharine, 16 Apr. 1683; Experince, 23 Feb. 1687; and Ebenezer, bapt. 12 Jan. 1690. He was rep. 1693, 4, and 5; and ano. w. Sarah, wh. d. 3 Dec. 1725, and he d. 19 Sept. [[vol. 4, p. 293]] 1726, bur. 22d. Elizabeth was in 1735, w. of Thomas Wade of Ipswich; Catharine m. 4 Oct. 1700, John Cannon; and next, 23 Nov. 1705, Samuel Edwards, wh. d. 17 June 1710; and for third h. 6 Dec. 1716, Isaac Russell; and Experience m. 24 Sept. 1713, Ebenezer Wakefield, and next m. a Collidge. 

When one of the reps. for Boston, he was of the Comtee. charged with the service of issuing the first paper currency aft. the disastr. expedit. of Phips against Quebec. TIMOTHY, Boston, prob. not s. of the preced. m. 1716, Elizabeth Danforth of Billerica, perhaps d. of the sec. Jonathan of the same, had Timothy, b. 5, bapt. 7 Apr. 1717; Danforth, 25 Feb. bapt. 1 Mar. 1719; Samuel, 25, bapt. 26 Mar. 1721, d. soon; Elizabeth 1 Oct. 1722, bapt. 10 Mar. foll.; Samuel, again, 6 Dec. 1724, d. young; Hannah, 7 Nov. 1726; Thomas, 13 June 1729; Samuel, again, 25 Oct. 1731; and Mary, 2 Sept. 1736. But of the last 5 or 6, I feel less confidence, inasmuch as the rec. of bapt. in Mather's ch. does not concur with this acco. of the bs. 

WALTER, came in the Susan and Ellen 1635, aged 36; but no more is kn. of him, unless we suppose the next name on the custom-ho. list at London, Joanna Thornton, aged 44, to be relat.

THORPE, HENRY, Watertown, 1642, freem. 1646, d. 21 May 1672. He had a d. m. to Benjamin Bullard, wh. claim. the est. JAMES, Dedham, had James, bapt. 27 July 1652; and Hannah, 24 Sept. 1665, was freem. 1690. JOHN, Duxbury 1633, a carpenter, to wh. Winsor gives w. Alice, d. in Nov. that yr. JOHN, Scarborough, undertook to preach 1661, without good qualificat. and was silenc. by our Gen. Ct. NATHANIEL, New Haven, propound. for freem. 1669, is prob. the same as Tharpe. See that. ROBERT, York, 1660, was perhaps, in 1638, the man wh. in Dec. of that yr. our Gen. Ct. advised not to overload a boat. SAMUEL, New Haven, propound. for freem. 1670, was perhaps s. of William, and br. of Nathaniel, had Elizabeth wh. bec. third w. of Abraham Doolittle. THOMAS, Ipswich, m. at Boston, 27 May 1656, Rebecca, d. of Thomas Milward of Gloucester, and he d. a. 1677. WILLIAM, New Haven. See Tharpe.

THRALL, TIMOTHY, Windsor, only s. of William of the same, m. 5 or 10 Nov. 1659, Deborah, d. of Thomas Gunn of the same, had Deborah, b. 9 Aug. 1660; Timothy, 7 Dec. 1662; Mehitable, Mar. 1665; Elizabeth 1 May 1667; John, 8 June 1669, d. soon; John, again, 5 June 1671; Martha, 31 May 1673; Thomas, 5 May 1675, d. at 3 mos.; Thomas, again, 10 July 1676; Samuel, and Abigail 1681; and his w. d. 7 Jan. 1695. He d. June 1697, leav. good est. 

WILLIAM, Windsor, among the first sett. yet it does not seem certain that he was ever of Dorchester, but he serv. in the Pequot war, had only two ch. b. at W. Timothy, July 1641; and Philippa, prob. earlier, for she m. 5 Nov. 1657, John Hosford. "Old goody Thrall d. 30 July 1676," says he rec. [[vol. 4, p. 294]] and he was a. 72 yrs old when he made his will, Dec. 1678, and d. 3 Aug. foll.

THRASHER, or THRESHER, ARTHUR, Newbury, m. 21 Apr. 1684, Mary Goodridge, perhaps d. of Jermiah, had Dorothy, b. 4 Feb. 1692. CHRISTOPHER, Taunton 1643, had Israel, b. 15 Sept. 1648; and perhaps Hannah, wh. m. 29 Dec. 1672, Stephen Thrasher; and Sarah, wh. m. 15 Jan. 1679, Benjamin Leonard; and others. FRANCIS, Milford 1686, a clothier, sold his ho. and ld. in 1690, and rem. ISRAEL, Taunton, s. of Christopher, m. 15 Aug. 1676, Mary, d. of Thomas Caswell of the same, had Mary, b. 7 Aug. foll. SAMUEL, Taunton, perhaps br. of the preced. m. 4 Dec. perhaps 1683, Bethia Brooks of Rehoboth.

THREENEEDLES, BARTHOLOMEW, Boston, m. Damaris, d. of James Hawkins, had Elizabeth b. 16 June 1660; Benjamin, 5 June 1666; Damaris, 26 Oct. 1670; James, 17 Apr. 1673; Ruth, 27 Feb. 1678; Sarah, 9 Nov. 1679; and Susanna, 8 Aug. 1688; as the copy of lost rec. in the City Clk's office shows; but there may have been others, for my confidence is something abated by his giv. the name as Thredneedle. His will of 2 Apr. 1700, pro. 7 Apr 1702, of wh. w. Damaris was extrix. makes it prob. that the two eldest were not liv. but the other s. and four ds. Damaris Broffe, Mary Millings, Ruth, and Susanna being nam. render it certain that ano. d. was b. to him, and the testator's regard reach. to gr. ds. Elizabeth Broffe, Mary Millings, and gr.s. Thomas M.

THROCKMORTON, or THROGMORTON, GEORGE, rather JOHN, came with famous Roger Williams, in the Lion, emb. Dec. 1 1630, at London, and arr. 5 Feb. foll. at Nantascut, adm. freem. 18 May of the same yr. He prob. brot. w. and was, in my judgm. properly nam. JOHN. Geo. is easily read thus from Jo. the common abbrev. At least one with the surname seems eno. for nothing more is ever heard of the freem. George, tho. on adm. he was the prefix of resp. JOHN, sen. at Providence owned alleg. 31 May 1666 to Charles II. and, it is said, rem. to Monmouth, N. J. there d. bef. 1687. His d. Patience m. Dec. 1655, John Coggeshall, the sec. and d. 7 Sept. 1676. both he and his w. were excomm. by the ch. at Salem, under rule of Hugh Peter, at the same time, and for the same offences as Williams, his w. and other friends. They went to R. I. and were in good repute, he contin. on freemen's list, 1655, at Providence. JOHN, Providence, call. jun. when in June 1668, he engag. alleg.

THROOP, *WILLIAM, Bristol, was rep. 1691, then had five ch. beside s.-in-law.

THROPP, JOHN, is the name of a serg. in the comp. of capt. William Turner, on serv. 1676.

THROW, DAVID, Springfield, took o. of alleg. 31 Dec. 1678 or the next day. [[vol. 4, p. 295]]

THURBER, JAMES, Rehoboth 1690. He was b. in Eng. 1660, and perhaps came over bef. m. or at least with not more than one of the ch. here nam. Elizabeth prob. d. soon, or young; James, b. 1685, wh. d. at 26 yrs.; John, 31 Oct. 1687, d. at 22 yrs.; Rachel; Elizabeth again, 31 Dec. 1691, d. at 27 yrs.

THURLO, THURLA, THURRELL, THORLA or THORLEY, FRANCIS, Newbury, eldest s. of Richard, b. in Eng. a. 1630, m. 5 Feb. 1655, Ann Morse, perhaps d. of Anthony, had Elizabeth b. 3 June 1656; Mary, 14 May 1658, d. next yr.; John, 25 Mar. 1660; Jonathan, 14 Mar. 1662; s. and d. tw. 20 July 1664, both prob. d. very soon; Richard, 25 Nov. 1665; Thomas and Francis, tw. 20 Apr. 1669. He came prob. with his f. was freem. 1670, and d. 26 Nov. 1703. GEORGE, Newbury, eldest ch. of Thomas, by w. Mary had Judith, b. 6 Sept. 1696; and Mary, 11 Apr. 1699.

He d. 22 Sept. foll. and his wid. d. 19 days aft. RICHARD, Rowley 1643, among early sett. but it is not kn. if he were with the first, nor whether he came, as most of the others, from Yorksh. nor whether he brot. w. or other ch. than Francis, b. 1630; and Thomas, 1632; but his w. Jane, wh. d. 19 Mar. 1684, may have accomp. him, and bore Lydia, 1 Apr. 1640; and John, 19 July 1644. In 1651 he rem. to Newbury; in 1653 he had a gr. of ld. by the Col. and next yr. a toll for his bridge built over Newbury (i. e. Parker) riv. and d. 10 Nov. 1685. 

THOMAS Newbury, younger s. of the preced. m. 1670, Judith, d. prob. of Hugh March, had George, b. 12 Mar. 1671; Simon, 20 Feb. 1673, d. at 17 yrs. a d. 13 Dec. 1675, wh. perhaps d. soon; Judith, 29 July 1677, d. soon; Judith, again, 12 Nov. 1679, prob. d. young; Mary, 1 Mary 1682; and [[vol. 4, p. 296]] Judith, again, 14 Apr. 1685.

THURSTON, or THIRSTON, BENJAMIN, Boston, weaver, perhaps s. of the first John, m. 12 Dec. 1660, Elizabeth d. of Robert Walker, had Mary, and Eleazer, tw. b. 24 Apr. 1662; was freem. 1665, one of the founders of the 3d or O. S. ch. ar. co. 1675, in wh. yr. bef. Philip's war, the Gen. Ct. made him ens. and he d. 10 Nov. 1678, of smallpox, says his spec. frd. Ch. Just. Sewall. CHARLES, Plymouth 1643. DANIEL, Newbury, an early set. hav. gr. of ld. Nov. 1638, whose first w. d. 25 May 1648, and he m. 29 Aug. foll. Ann Lightfoot, perhaps wid. of Francis of Lynn, d. 16 Feb. 1666, without ch. giv. his est. to Daniel T. a kinsman, wh. bef. was call. Daniel jr. DANIEL, Newbury, may have been short time at Ipswich in 1675, was perhaps the legatee of the preced. and may have come with him from Eng. m. 20 Oct. 1655, Ann Pell, perhaps d. of Joseph of Lynn, had Daniel, b. 2 July 1659, unless the yr. be too late by two, d. at 4 mos.; Hannah, 20 Jan. 1659, says Coffin; Daniel, again, 18 Jan. 1661; Sarah, 8 Jan. 1664; Stephen, 25 Oct. 1665; Joseph, 14 Sept. 1667; Ann, 6 Sept. 1669; James, 24 Sept. 1670; Stephen, again, 25 Oct. 1672, d. soon; Stephen, again, 5 Sept. 1674; and Abigail, 17 Mar. 1678; and he d. 19 Feb. 1693. 

DANIEL, Medfield, freem. 1678, may have been s. of John the first of Dedham. DANIEL, Rehoboth, m. 16 Dec. 1681, Hannah Miller, had Sarah, b. 2 Jan. 1683, posthum. tho. we kn. not the exact time of his d. DANIEL, Newbury, s. of the sec. Daniel, by w. Mary had Daniel, b. 26 June 1690; John, 12 June 1692; Mary, 7 Jan. 1694; Benjamin, 4 May 1695; Hannah, 26 Jan. 1698; Martha, 27 Nov 1699; and Jonathan, 16 Mar. 1701. His will was pro. 27 Feb. 1637. *EDWARD, Newport, m.

Perhaps his d. Rebecca bec. sec. w. of Weston Clark. He is on the list of freem. 1655, was rep. of Providence 1663, but ret. to N. His d. Elinor m. 1674, George Havens of Portsmouth, R. I. JAMES, Newbury, s. of Daniel the sec. by w. Mary, had Hannah, b. 15 Nov. 1694, d. at 7 yrs.; Dorcas, 20 Oct. 1696; Abner, 28 Feb. 1699; and Phebe, 20 June 1702. 

JOHN, Salem 1638, had gr. of ld. 1640, possib. but not prob. the same as JOHN, Dedham, wh. was of Wrentham in Co. Suffk. a carpenter, came in the Mary Ann of Yarmouth, 1637, aged, says my transcript of a rec. in Westminster Hall, 30, wh. should be 36, for by the parish reg. Wrentham, I find he was bapt 13 Jan. 1601, and that would better agree with the age of [[vol. 4, p. 297]] his w. Margaret, 32, wh. he. brot. with two ch. Thomas, wh. was bapt. 4 Aug. 1633; and John, bapt. 13 Sept. 1635 in Eng.; had here Joseph; Benjamin, b. 8 July 1640, bapt. with Joseph, 13 Sept. foll.; Mary, b. 8 Mar. 1643; and Judith, 29 May 1648. He was freem. 10 May 1643; and his est. was part in Medfield, set off from D. 1651. His w. d. 9 May 1662. *JOHN, Medfield, s. prob. of the preced. brot. from Eng. by his f. 1637, was freem. 1663, and rep. 1683, of wh. we should gladly kn. more, than that he m. Mary, d. of Nicholas Wood. 

JOHN, Newport, was on the list of freem. 1655. JOSEPH, Newbury, s. of Daniel the sec. m. 1695, Mehitable Kimball. RICHARD, Salem 1637, rem. to Boston, was a mariner, by w. Martha, d. of Christopher Stanley, as we may infer from the will of Susanna Phillips, wh. had been w. of S. had Samuel, b. 11 July 1652, and perhaps others. We may obs. the want of precise use of words, when T. in convey. of part of ship to William Phillips, Sept. 1650, calls him f.-in-law, only bec. he (Phillips) had m. the wid. mo. of vendor's w. *THOMAS, Prob. s. of the first John, bapt. in Eng. was of Medfield, m. 13 Dec. 1655, Sarah Thaxter, d. prob. of Thomas of Hingham, had John, b. 4 Mar. 1657; Thomas, 11 Feb. 1659; Nathaniel, 24 Jan. 1661; and others, whose names are not kn. He was a man of much usefuln. serg. in 1675, bef. the war, made lieut. in 1678, and rep. 1686, in the last Ct. bef. the abolit. of the good old Chart. Farmer, MS. thinks he must have been the person, wh. had in Apr. of that yr. some votes for Assist. as in Hutch. Coll. 544. THOMAS, a quaker, aged 34, wh. came from London in the Speedwell, 1656, and was sent away in the same sh. 

THOMAS, Hampton, sw. alleg. 1678, and mark. by Dr. Belkn. 1681, as hav. been b. 1649, wh. was slight ground for fear that he might be the Quaker, wh. emb. 30 May 1656, aged 34, at London, in the Speedwell, and arr. at Boston, 27 July. But this passeng. was prob. ret. by the same vessel; and Belkn. and Farmer, and Geneal. Reg. VII. 203, 4, all spell without s the name of this Hampton man, wh. authority united does not prevail with me. He was Provost marshall in 1684, employ. by the Ct. THOMAS, Wrentham, perhaps s. of the first Thomas, by w. Mehitable, had Mehitable, b. 1 Aug. 1686; Mary, 16 Mar. 1688, d. soon; Thomas, 2 Nov. 1689; Ichabod, 9 Aug. 1692, d. soon; as his mo. had 2 days aft. bring. him into the world; and by w. Esther had David, 20 Nov. 1693; and Daniel, 25 Sept. 1695, perhaps more; and d. 15 Dec. 1704. Five of this name at Harv. and two at Yale had been gr. in 1851.

THURTON. See Thurston.

THWAITS, ALEXANDER, Concord, came in the Hopewell from London, 1635, aged 20, perhaps d. or rem. early, or the giv. of his corn to Rev. P. Bulkley, by our Gen. Ct. in May 1640, is dark. At the East he may be seen sw. alleg. to Charles II. 8 Sept. 1665. [[vol. 4, p. 298]]

THWING, BENJAMIN, Boston, came as one of the serv. or apprent. of Ralph Hudson, in the Susan and Ellen, 1635, aged 16, by w. Deborah, wh. join. our ch. 9 Oct. 1641, had Deborah, b. 17 May and d. 23 Aug. bef.; John, 21 Nov. bapt. 1 Dec. 1644, the f. hav. join. the ch. Feb. preced. had also Edward, b. 14 Nov. 1652; Deboroah, again, 13 Jan. 1660; and Benjamin, earlier, no doubt, than the last two; was freem. 1645. Farmer thot. he was a propr. at Concord. His master, by will, 1638, left him L10, when his time should be out, and his master's wid. left him ano. sum in 1651. BENJAMIN, Boston, s. of the preced. carpenter, by w. Abigail, had Benjamin, b. 24 July 1670, d. young; Lydia, 25 Jan. 1673, d. young; Benjamin, again, 20 July 1678; and Lydia, again, 20 July 1679; was freem. 1680. EDWARD, Boston, s. of the first Benjamin, freem. 1675, by w. Elizabeth had Robert, b. 9 Jan. 1680; Elizabeth 7 Feb. 1681, d. soon; Elizabeth again, 19 Feb. 1685; Benjamin, 14 Apr. 1686; and John, 29 July 1688. JOHN, Boston, eldest br. of the preced. by w. Mary had Deborah, b. 29 Mar. 1673; Hannah, 4 Mar. 1675; Mary, 12 Apr. 1677; Rachel; 31 Jan. 1681; Sarah, 22 Feb. 1686; and Benjamin, 6 June 1688.
