Thomas emigrated from England to Salisbury MA in 1640. He was 'considerably' older than his brother Robert. He is mentioned in the records as planter and husbandman. He received lands in the first division of Salisbury in 1640-43 and also was one of the first 18 settlers in Amesbury, where he received lands at various times, besides a 'township' for one of his sons in 1660.

His house lot is shown on the map of Salisbury in 1639. He was one of the signers of the 'articles of agreement' and one of the first eighteen commoners of Salisbury. On 1 Jan 1658, he and another were chosen to order the prudential affairs of the county, and in the latter part of the same month was one of two persons chosen 'standing lot layers' and as such he served for many years. He was one of the ten original purchasers of Nantucket.

Thomas was a very prominent man, and often served as moderator of the town meetings, as selectman, and in several other important offices. He was killed by indians in 1677 during King Philip's War.

Court ordered that unless there be a necessity, as the court should judge, for the sale of any of the lands for her maintenance, she should not sell it or give it away except to one or more of her children. Court also ordered that a due respect being had to what any of the children have already received as portions, the same should be divided among the rest of the children, the eldest son having a double portion.

Thomas Barnard Thomas was the elder of the two brothers. He was born about 1608-1610 in Lowesoft, Suffolk, England. Some sources hint he was from Brandstone Parish in either Suffolk or Essex. However, researchers have not been able to find any proof in the registers of either parish. We may assume he and his brother were English, but as of now I do not know exactly where they lived. Again many sources state the brothers came to America in 1650. Yet Thomas is shown on an old map as being a landholder in Salisbury, Massachusetts in 1639. Later the family also bought land a few miles away in neighboring Amesbury, Massachusetts. Thomas Barnard married a woman named Eleanor or Helen sometime about 1640 in Salisbury. Their first child, Thomas junior, was born there in May of 1641. Their second son, Nathaniel, was born there in 1642. Nathaniel married his cousin, Mary Barnard, and this is our lineage. Thomas seems to have had lands in both Salisbury and Amesbury. The children were all born in Salisbury, but he appears in early Amesbury records by 1660 and then in the records of both towns. Perhaps all the lands lay on the border and spilled over into both towns. Thomas was one of the original purchasers of Nantucket Island in 1659. He gave a half interest to his brother Robert. It does not appear that he ever went to the island, but Robert did in 1663. Thomas was killed by Indians in Amesbury in October of 1677. His estate was settled in 1679. Eleanor Barnard remained in the area and on July 19, 1681 she married George Little of Newbury. She died on November 27, 1694. The following is what I have on the children of Thomas and Eleanor Barnard. All the children were born in Salisbury, Massachusetts. THOMAS BARNARD, JR. was born May 10, 1641 and died before 1715. He married Sarah Peasley in 1662. NATHANIEL BARNARD was born November 15, 1642 and died on Nantucket on January 17, 1717/18. He married Mary Barnard, his cousin, a daughter of his father's brother Robert. This is our line and his life is covered in the next section. MARTHA BARNARD a twin born on September 22, 1645. She married Thomas Hayes or Haynes on December 26, 1667. After he died, she married Samuel Breckman in 1686. MARY BARNARD the other twin. She married Anthony Morse on November 10, 1669 and then Philip Eastman on August 22, 1678. She died in January of 1712. SARAH BARNARD was born September 28, 1647. She married William Hackett on January 31, 1667. HANNAH BARNARD was born November 25, 1649. She married Benjamin Stevens in Salisbury on October 28, 1673. RUTH BARNARD was born October 16, 1651. She married Joseph Peasley on January 21, 1671. JOHN BARNARD was born January 16, 1655. He married a young widow, Francis (Hoyt) Colby on December 27, 1676. He died in Amesbury on July 15, 1718.

He married Eleanor/Helena/Ellen Morse on 1641 in Salisbury or Amesbury, Essex, Massachusetts.

Notes for Thomas B. Barnard, Jr.: Born in England in 1612, Thomas Barnard arrived in Massachusetts in 1638. Two ships with incomplete or missing passenger lists sailed from England to Massachusetts Bay during that year: 'The Susan and Ellin', and the 'Martin'. Perhaps Thomas and his family sailed on them (or an unknown ship, as some records have been lost).

Thomas was a planter in Salisbury, Massachusetts, where he received land in the first divisions in 1640 and 1643 (the Genealogy of Judith Ann Hammond states that Thomas purchased land from the Indians on Nantucket Island in 1642).

Thomas was also one of the first twenty settlers of Nantucket and one of the ten purchasers of the island from Thomas Mayhew (Source: David W. Barnard). He transferred one half of his purchase to his brother, Robert Barnard. Thomas was a pioneer settler at Amesbury, where he was killed by Indians on July 7, 1677.

One of the original owners of Nantucket Island Thomas Barnard "Barnett" was of Salisbury and Amesbury, Mass. He was a planter or husbandman. Received land in the "first division" 1640 and 1643. He was one of the first settlers in Amesbury, received land there at various times and a "township" for one of his sons in 1660. He was killed by Indians about 1677.


One of the original owners of Nantucket Island Mass.

Thomas is shown on an old map as being a landholder in Salisbury, Massachusetts in 1639. Later the family also bought land a few miles away in neighboring Amesbury, Massachusetts.

Thomas seems to have had lands in both Salisbury and Amesbury. The children were all born in Salisbury, but he appears in early Amesbury records by 1660 and then in the records of both towns. Perhaps all the lands lay on the border and spilled over into both towns.

Thomas was one of the original purchasers of Nantucket Island in 1659. He gave a half interest to his brother Robert. It does not appear that he ever went to the island, but Robert did in 1663.

English settlement and the history of whaling in Nantucket

Great Point Lighthouse

The history of Nantucket's settlement by the English did not began in earnest until 1659, when Thomas Mayhew sold his interest to the "nine original porchasers," Tristram Coffin, Thomas Macy, Christopher Hussey, Richard Swayne, Thomas Barnard, Peter Coffin, Stephen Greenleafe, John Swayne and William Pike, "for the sum of thirty Pounds...and also two beaver hats, one for myself, and one for my wife." Seamen and tradesmen began to populate Nantucket, such as Richard Gardner son of Thomas Gardner (planter) who moved there from Salem in 1667

Thomas was killed by Indians in Amesbury in October of 1677. His estate was settled in 1679. Eleanor Barnard remained in the area and on July 19, 1681 she married George Little of Newbury. She died on November 27, 1694.

The following is what I have on the children of Thomas and Eleanor Barnard. All the children were born in Salisbury, Massachusetts.

Walter G. Ashworth 8th Great Grandson


Thomas was a plantar or husbandman. He was killed by indians in 1677. He was buried at the Golgotha Burial Ground in Amesbury, Essex, Massachusetts.
