Birth: unknown Mowsley Leicestershire, England Death: 1641 Springfield Hampden County Massachusetts, USA

Born about 1602 in Mowsley, Leicestershire, England, son of Joseph and Mary (Schuyler) Horton, where he married Mary Eddy. They sailed to America on the ship "Mary and John", along with their firstborn child Mary, born 1629, and Thomas' brother, Jeremiah, about two years his junior. They arrived in Massachusetts early in 1636, preceded by his older brother, Barnabas, about a year earlier, on the ship "Swallow". Thomas and his family left immediately for Windsor, Hartford County, Connecticut, where they sojourned for a short time. It was here that their second child, Jeremiah (1636- ) was born. By 1638, Thomas and his family had moved to what is now Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, where he was one of the founders of the town, a town officer, and proprietor. His signature is still to be seen in the "Pyncheon Papers", that have to do with the land purchase from the Indians. It was here that their third child, Thomas II (1638-about1714-15), and fourth child John (1640- were born. Thomas I died in 1641 at about 39 years of age. Burial site is probably in or near Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts.
