About Thomas Halsey, Sr.

Cussan, in his history of England, mentions a Thomas Halsey who was baptized Jan. 2, 1592, who was a mercer in London; living in Naples in 1621, and afterwards, it is believed, an emigrant to America. This family, like many others of Southampton, was of high social position in the mother country. One of its representatives in England is now in Parliament. Thomas was the Southampton settler. His first wife was murdered by the Indians; either some from New England who wished to excite a war in the Southampton settlement, or by some in Long Island at their instigation. He married for his second wife Ann, the wid. of Edward Johnes. (History of Southampton)
