(Supplemental information by William R. Randall, family researcher) Notes

  • 1662, October: With his father and brother, he was a strong adherent of Dr. Rossiter and all three joined with others of Guilford in seceding from New Haven Colony, tendered themselves with their persons and estates to the Connecticut Colony, and were accepted and promised protection. The bitter controversy that followed was the chief cause of both Thomas's and William's leaving Guilford. Thomas was a man of ability and prominence at Killingworth, and twice served in the General Assembly from that town.
