About Thomas Eames Eames, Jr.

Thomas EAMES - b. about 1548; bur. Jun. 25, 1618, Fordington, St. George, Dorset, England. Possibly the son of John and Joan EAMES. Lived at Fordington from 1577 until his death. Married about 1576.

Thomas is the only man of the Eames family mentioned in those early records of Fordington that have been examined. The Bishops Transcript of the Parish Records tantalizes the researcher with the note that in 1588 "Jone Emes widow an old woman was buried ye 17th day of June." It's possible that other branches of the Eames family were in the town of Dorchester, which is nearly surrounded by the parish of Fordington, or that some Eames marriages took place there, but the early registers of Dorchester have not been preserved. The occupation of Thomas hasn't been discovered, nor his location within the large area of the parish. Christening records in the Bishops Transcript all identify sons and daughters of Thomas Eames; no mention of a wife named Millicent was observed.
