Immediate Family

About Thomas Reade

  • 1663. June 30th. Col. Thomas Read bad died abroad before this date. He became freeman 1634; joined Salem Church before 1636; and granted 300 acres of land 1637. He left a second wife, and two sons, the younger of whom was Abraham. He appears to have served under Cromwell and commanded a Regiment in England 1660, at the Restoration of Charles II. [1]
  • The historian of the Reade family in America indulges in the conjecture that this ancestor was the son of Sir Thomas and Mary Cornwall Reade of Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire. In 1630, while he was yet a young boy, he came to America in the great fleet with Governor Winthrop, and settled in Salem. This boy, named Thomas Reade, grew up to be a man of considerable importance in Salem, where he purchased a large tract of land, and to this possession he added three hundred acres which he acquired near Cape Prosper in 1662. He also rejoiced in the title of "Colonel," which, however, then as now, may have been compatible with pursuits entirely peaceful on the part of its possessor. [2]
