Thomas, 3d, was born in Ipswich, Mass., removed to Norwich, Conn., after Mercy's death, and bought a farm in East Haddam, Conn., March 20, 1 705, in the deed of which he is designated as Thomas Knowlton, Junr., of Norwich. At the General Assembly holden at Hartford, May 9, 1706. he was commissioned lieutenant of the Train Band in East Haddam, "on the east side of the great river." This Thomas has frequently been supposed to have been the son of William (3), and the Thomas who married Marjery Goodhue has been considered the son of Thomas and Hannah Gieen. This joint the historian settled by finding a document of which the following is an extract (Saleir Records) :

"July 2, 1692. Thomas Knowlton, son of William Knowlton to his son Thomas, Shoemaker, gives his parlor new chamber, a part of his cellar, and the privilege of using water from the well pump. May 26, 1698. "* * * that y c sd Thomas Knowlton Senr & Thomas Knowlton Junr. his Sonne, and Benjamin Baldwin of Woburn and Mary Knowlton of sd Ipswich, children of sd Thomas Sent and y e sc Thomas Senr as Guardian to his two other children, viz Ebenezei &.

This, then, settles the parentage of Thomas, who m. Mercy and Susannah, and a!so the parentage of his sisters, Mary and Patience.
