Savage's Genealogical Dictionary states that some of Thomas Upson's children were certainly born in England. What was evidently his second marriage is recorded as follows: "Thomas Upsunn was maryed to Elisibeth Fuller Jenneuary the twenty and three, one thousand six hundred forty and six." The name of the port from which he sailed, the name of his first wife and the record of the births of his children have not been discovered, after much research.
