Thomas had at least three wives. He married Agnes Jeffrey on January 5, 1562, a second unknown wife, and Johan Williams (Wills), a widow in nearby St Dominic on April 23, 1604. Johan outlived Thomas by eleven years and was buried in St Dominic on November 22, 1627. We know Thomas had a second wife because there were no children by his third marriage and there were simply too many children for all of them to have had the same mother. Thomas had eleven children who were still alive when he died. Since infant mortality was about 50% at the time, it is probable that Thomas had in the range of twenty children in all. In addition to his eight sons discussed below, he had three daughters – Epiphany (who married ____ Peake and later ____ Truscott), Mary (who married ____ Helman), and Jane (baptized March 20, 1579/80 and married ____ Harper).
