Thomas Angell was one of the four men who wintered with Roger Williams at Seekonk, Plymouth Colony, in early 1636, and then joined him in founding the settlement of Providence in what became the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Though he was a minor at the time of his arrival, his name appears on several of the early documents related to the settlement of Providence. In the early 1650s he became active in the affairs of the town, serving as commissioner, juryman, and constable. In 1658 he began his service as the Providence Town Clerk, and held this position for 17 years.
