October 19th 1658. "The Court with the consent of Thomas Diamon hath put the say'd Thomas an apprentice unto William Ward for the space of five years next ensuing; faithfully to serve him. And he is to have sufficient meat, drink and clothing; and eleven pounds to truly paid him at the end of term in good merchantable pay: And there shall be indentures drawn between them to that end. He is not to be bound to their heirs or assignes.

"William Hill, Sec" (F.T. Rec.)

He was a mariner and settled at New London, where he married Elizabeth Bradley (Sav. Gen. Dict.)

Thomas Dymond, aged twenty-eight years, in 1670 was one of the early settlers of Essex and Old Norfolk (New Eng. Gen. Reg., vol 6)

In Calkins History of New London, mention is made of him as follows:

Page 146, "In 1670 or near that time we first meet with Thomas Dymond and Benj. Shapley both mariners, the former from Fairfield."

Page 232 informs us that the master of a vessel was generally part owner of craft and cargo, and in small coasters the master or skipper was independent of orders. New London was noted before 1700 for her coasting vessels and skippers, and among the latter is mentioned Thomas Dymond.

Page 236. The barque "Providence" coming in from sea was lost with her cro on Fisher's Island Point on the night of 28 Nov 1679. The master, Thomas Dymond, and two assistants were barely saved.

In minutes of cases chiefly before county court in 1680 Captain John Nash presiding, is found the case of Thomas Dymond vs. barque "Providence" -- stranded on Fisher's Island -- for salvage of goods.

Page 278. Thomas Dymond, brother-in-law of Peter Bradley, died 1687. Thomas was probably brother to John Dymond, constable in 1679. Name and family passed away from New London. House and wharf were purchased by Benjamin Starr in 1702, but the Dymond heirs continued proprietors of inner commons until 1719.

Page 159, Benjamin Starr... purchased in 1702 of the heirs of Thomas Dymond a house, garden, and wharf upon Bream Cove, east side, where the old bridge crossed the cove, which was then regarded as the end of the town in that direction.
