About Thomas Bacor, of Hingham


  • (It has been suggested that Nicholas Baker also had a son, Thomas, who married Christian Beal, daughter of Nathaniel Beal, but that’s probably Nicholas Bacor.)
  • "Sons John and Thomas died before their father's will of 1678" (1)

From The Great Migration Begins: Sketches PRESERVED PURITAN

Thomas Bacor of Hingham married Christian Beal, daughter of Nathaniel Beal and granddaughter of John Beal of Hingham. She was presumably the child baptized on 9 November 1654 [NEHGR 121:104], and died at Boston on 20 September 1677 [NEHGR 121:200], leaving a small son, Thomas. This Thomas is mentioned in the will of his grandfather Beal, who died on 20 December 1708, the will being proved on 29 December that year [Savage 1:146]. If Thomas Bacor was Nicholas' son, and left a child named Thomas (even if he himself died as a young man), then why did the godly grandfather Baker not name grandson Thomas in his will, as grandfather Beal did? However, Thomas does not seem to be Nathaniel's son, and there are no other Bakers in Hingham. The possibility exists that Thomas Bacor was really Thomas Bacon and perhaps a son of GEORGE BACON of Hingham, although a new reading of the original manuscript of Hobart's journal at the Massachusetts Historical Society shows conclusively that the surname is written Bacor in the original. It is doubtful that Thomas belongs in either the Baker or the Bacon families here mentioned, and he was probably from somewhere else.
