Birth: 1608
Chilmark
Wiltshire, England
Death: Apr. 19, 1682
Nantucket
Nantucket County
Massachusetts, USA

He was the husband of Sarah Hopcott who he married in Chilmark, England on June 9, 1643.
He was the first Town Clerk of Amesbury, Massachusetts. from The History of Amesbury
--------------------------------------------
He was prosecuted and fined for allowing four Friends on a journey to take shelter in his house about three quarters of an hour, one rainy day in 1659, as his own letter to the court informs us. It is worthy to note that his grandson and many other of his descendants became Friends. Like Roger Williams, he fled from persecution in Massachusetts. His family were the first white settlers of Nantucket, then under the juridiction of New York. Edward Starbuck and Isaac Coleman, a lad of 12 years old, accompanied them.

Please note that Thomas is not buried here but rather on Nantucket Island. See memorial # 10904420
