|Death: ||Jul., 1869|
Sold land to the town in 1864 for the Assonet Burying Ground.
The Rev. Thomas Andros, of Berkley, who lived on a farm bordering on the Freetown line, taught navigation at his home. Undoubtedly some of the Assonet youths availed themselves of the opportunity to study with him. Five of his sons became masters of vessels in the merchant service. Two of them, Thomas Jr. and Benedict, became residents of Assonet Village, marrying Sarah and Eunice, daughters of Peter Nichols, blacksmith. Thomas was for a time engaged in the coastwise trade, and later sailed between New York and Mediterranean ports. Benedict for several years sailed between New Orleans and Liverpool.
