About Thomas Hand

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/64571974/thomas-hand ' Recompense Hand may have been her youngest son, and she may have died in childbirth.

“Thomas 2 b. Southampton 1646, d. in Cape May Co., N.J. drowned Oct. 2, 1714; he m.1st before 1687, Mary, dau. Capt.Thomas Talmage of E.H.; he m. 2nd. _______.”


Thomas Hand born 1646/48, Southampton, Long Island, NY, ref: ColFamCapeMay, married C. 1687, in Wainscott, LI, NY, Katherine (?), born C. 1644, ref: ColFamCapeMay. Thomas died OCT 2, 1714, Salem, NJ. Listed in ColFamCapeMay as "one of the Cape May whalemen". He is also listed as drowned off Cape May 1714, however, his will was proved in 1713. His will mentions all daughters and sons John and Recompence and two unnamed others. Since a record of deed lists additionally sons George, Jeremiah and Thomas, all of age, One of them must have died before Oct 1707 when the will was written. He was a whaler, living in Wainscott until c. 1693 when he moved to Cape May, NJ. He had a first wife of whom nothing is known. Katherine: Another genealogy has Thomas m. 1st Martha Osborn bf. 1667 b. Aug 26, 1646 LI, NY and d. 1690 in Cape May, NJ. That genealogy has Thomas m. 2nd Catherine (Katherine) Stubbs Aug 29, 1702, b. c. 1645 in Southampton, LI, NY, which would make the majority of children those of Martha Osborn. However, Colonial Families of Cape May list only Katherine and a first wife of whom nothing is known, so we are listing children under her, although their b. dates don't match marriage date.

Children:

i George Hand born C. 1675.

ii Thomas Hand born c. 1677.

iii Jeremiah Hand born 1680, ref: ColFamCapeMay, married Eliza (?). Jeremiah died Oct 4, 1732, Cape May, NJ. Left a will dated Oct 4, 1732 proved Feb 26, 1732/3.

iv John Hand born c. 1682.

v Prudence Hand born c. 1685, ref: ColFamCapeMay, married (?) Crowell, ref: ColFamCapeMay.

vi Deborah Hand born 1688, East Hampton, Suffolk, LI, NY, ref: ColFamCapeMay.

vii Alice (Alce) Hand born 1689, East Hampton, Suffolk, LI, NY, ref: ColFamCapeMay.

viii Recompense Hand born C. 1690.

ix Isaac Hand. Not mentioned in ColFamCapeMay
