Lieut Thomas Tracy
Birth: 1610, England
Death: Nov. 7, 1685
Norwich
New London County
Connecticut, USA

___________________________________________________

Lieutenant in King Philip's War. He was of Salem in 1637, and later of Saybrook, Wethersfield, and, in 1662, Norwich,CT. He was a carpenter.

His first known wife, married by Feb 1679/80, was Martha Bourne Bradford Tracy, widow of John Bradford and daughter of Thomas Bourne and Elizabeth ____ Bourne.

His second known wife, married after Jul 1683, was Mary Foote Stoddard Goodrich Tracy, widow of John Stoddard and John Goodrich Jr, and daughter of Nathaniel Foote and Elizabeth Deming Foote.

He certainly had a wife prior to Martha, by whom Miriam Tracy (who married Thomas Waterman) was born. Identities of earlier wive(s) are not known. Martha was not the mother of any of his children. Any information that names his earlier wives is from very old sources, and is not proven. That she was Mary, widow of Edward Mason, has not been proven. See NEHG REGISTER 61(1907):93.

Children(by first marriage to unknown wife): John Tracy, Jonathan Tracy, Thomas Tracy Jr, Solomon Tracy, Daniel Tracy, Samuel Tracy, and Miriam Tracy Waterman.

Information from the Pilgrim Society documentation:

"In 1645 he went to relief of Uncus, Sachem of Mohegans, when he was besieged at Shattucks Point by Naragansetts. Appointed in 1661 by General Court to try the Bond of New London; 1662 he was chosen on of the Court of Commission; in 1666 he was appointed Ensign at Norwich 1667-1678 deputy from Norwich to Colonial Assembly (Connecticut) in which he sat as member for more than twenty sessions. In 1673 appointed Lieut. of Forces in New London County to fight Dutch and Indians. 1674 was Quartermaster of Dragoons and in 1678 was appointed a Justice. He was one of the founders of both of the towns of Saybrook and of Norwich, Connecticut."
