About Thomas Stowe, Sr.

Became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston in 1638. In 1648, he moved to Concord and owned a farm of 666 acres with his brother Samuel. He preached at Middletown for several years before there was a church. There was apparently some problem between him and the town, as he was relieved of that duty by the General Court in October 1660. In 1670, he got a grant of land from the town on the condition that he build a house there.
