About Thomas Bennett

May have been married (and widowed) before Alice Pierce - two Thomas Bennetts are reported in the 1624 Muster, but neither one with a wife Alice (one had a wife Margery, one had no wife).

Thomas Bennett was a Member of the House of Burgesses as he represented Mulberry Island in 1632 (Burgess Journals 1619-59, p. xiii). Mulberry Island is in Warwick Co., and as Warwick's records were destroyed in the Civil War, nothing more can be found out about Thomas Bennett.

He does not, however, seem to have been any traceable relation to Governor Richard Bennett. The parentage and siblings provided here are speculative and hypothetical. Note that this family originates from Berkshire - Governor Bennett's family was from Somerset.
