About Thomas Varney

Notes for Cpl. Thomas Varney:

Thomas was apprenticed in his youth to John Hardy of Salem Massachusetts. John names Thomas in his will, dated 30 March 1652 and proved 30 June 1652:

"Item: I give unto my said son-in-law [Roger Haskale] all my interest in Thomas Varney my apprentice unless his parents buie his time by payinge the som of seven pound that I pd for his time whch if they shall doe I give the sd som of seven pounds to my sd son-in-law."


The repurchase appears to have taken place. In the inventory of the estate, even though two other apprentices are mentioned as property, Thomas is not. It would appear that Thomas had only just begun his apprenticeship with Hardy.

Thomas lived in Barbados for 25 years and was a ship builder. He started one of the first iron and glassworks in America. Came from Barbados in either 1644 or 1649.
