--------------------

A progeniter of numerous offspring, by some said to be a distinct race from Richard, but it is not positively known as to the facts. Both families settled in the same town (Braintree, Mass.) about the same time, as the records show that the marriages of their children were recorded very near together; and as many intermarriages have taken place, it make them relatives. Thomas and Margery Thayer it appears brought with them from England three sons: 1. Thomas, 2. Ferdinado, 3. Shadrach. I think that must be all of his family, as in his will he mentions no other names.

Thomas THAYER, son of Richard THAYER, was christened 16 Aug 1596 at Thornbury,

Gloucestershire, England. Thomas died 2 June 1665 in Braintree, MA. He married Margery

WHEELER 13 April 1618 at Thornbury, England. She was born 25 April 1600 at

Thornbury, England, the daughter of Abel WHEELER and Jane SHEPHARD. Margery

died 13 Feb 1672/73 in Braintree, MA.

The immigrant Thomas THAYER is the progenitor of the largest of the three branches of the

THAYER Family of America. Well over 20,000 of his descendants are followed in my

publication entitled A Comprehensive Genealogy of the Thayer Family of

America. Thomas THAYER first appears in the records in America on 24 Feb 1639/40

when he was granted land at Mt. Wollaston (now Braintree) MA for his family of 9 heads

for "40 acres more, there being in all 76 acres upon the same covenant of the three shillings

per acre."

There has been much speculation concerning the exact year of immigration for Thomas

THAYER. Some say as early as 1630, others as late as 1645--which was most certainly

too late. In 1994, Raymond Alexander ("Rick") THAYER, TFA secretary, called the New

England Historic Genealogical Society to ask about a list of possible ships which may have

transported the THAYER immigrants to the Colonies. He spoke with Dave Dearborn, who

was referred as an expert on the subject and was surprised to learn that the only entry ever

given and available there was the name of the Captain of the ship John DRIVER, which

brought Thomas to the Port of Boston, having left Weymouth, England in 1637. Evidently

this was in reference to the goods which Thomas shipped from the Port of Weymouth on 22

April 1637 on the ship Speedwell. It is my understanding that the "names of the passengers

were not recorded unless they also happened to be exporting dutiable goods, though some

exceptions are to be found to this practice."(Genealogical Gleanings in England

Passenger and Ships to America 1618-1668, by Peter Wilson Coldham.)

When Rick called NEHGS once again in 1995, he spoke with Mr. Dearborn's Assistant,

Jerry Anderson, and was informed that there, were two recorded sailing vessels in the

period between 1607 and 1670 with the THAYER name; one, the "Blessing" captained by

John DEVINE, which evidently brought Thomas to Boston Harbor on 8 April 1637(The

Complete Book of Immigrants, Volume I, 1607-1670, by Peter Wilson Coldham); the

other was the "Speedwell" which followed shortly thereafter and carried Thomas' goods.

Thomas THAYER was a shoemaker, as can be seen by his will, dated 21 June 1664. This

has been published in full in the 1835 THAYER Memorial by Dr. Elisha THAYER and

elsewhere. Birth; Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Thornbury, Gloucester, England parish

register, "Thomas TAYER," Godfathers were Thomas GIBBS and William DIMERY.

Marriage; Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Thornbury, Gloucester, England parish register.
