About Thomas Mudgett, Jr.

Thomas Mudgett, Jr. (circa 1640 - circa 1701), son of Thomas Mudgett, Sr. (born 1614 England) and Ann Woreton, was born circa 1640 in England, and was living in Salisbury, Massachusetts as early as 1663. He married (1) Sarah Clement Morrill (1626 - 1694), the widow of Abraham Merrill and daughter of Robert Clements and Lydia Drummer of Haverhill, Massachusetts, on 6 October 1665; and (2) Ann French Long (10 March 1659 - circa 1731), daughter of Joseph ans Susanna French, married in 1695. He was about 61 when he died circa 1701 in Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.

Thomas Mudgett was a shipwright. Samuel Getchell (1658 - 1710) was an apprentice of Thomas Mudgett in 1678. Besides his shipyard, Thomas owned two-thirds interest in a fulling mill and owned half a sawmill. He was a soldier in King Philip's war in 1675. The constables of Lynn and other towns were charged with billeting the three Norfolk County soldiers, John Dickinson, Richard Currier and Thomas Mudget. Records show arbitration between Thomas Mudgett and Thomas Barnard respecting certain mills on the Powow River.

In 1690, forty-one men of Salisbury became Freemen of Massachusetts Bay Colony, only three of whom were given the title "Mr." and Thomas was one of the three. This suggests that he came from a good English background, because the title was reserved for ministers, magistrates and important members of the community.

Discussion

"The intermarriages and step-relationships in this family are typical of the early times. Sarah Clements had nine children by her first husband, Abraham Morrill, and two by her second, Thomas Mudgett. Ann French had eight children by her first husband, Richard French, and three by Thomas Mudgett, making in all twenty-two children, who were step-brothers and sisters, and who ranged in January 1701, from Isaac Morrill, aged fifty-four, to John Mudgett, aged two weeks." From "Ancestors and Descendants of Robert Clements" by Percival W. Clement : Philadelphia : volume I pages 1- 458; volume II pages 459-1073

  • He may have been the same as the Thomas Mudgett of Virginia
  • There was a death in 1663 in Salisbury of an unidentified Mudgett. It has been suggested that this could have been Thomas, Jr. or his son John, who was also in Virginia. However, since Thomas Jr. married Ann French Long in 1695, he clearly could not have been the Thomas Mudgett who died in 1663. There is reason to believe it was the father of Thomas who died, though nothing more appears concerning Thomas Sr. in the records of Salisbury, where Thomas Jr. first settled.
