Birth: Feb. 16, 1672
Death: Aug. 27, 1724

At age 15 on Oct. 20 1687, Thomas is shown in town records as having killed a "wolfe".

On 4/16/1722, Thomas deeded one hundred acres adjoining the homestead farm, to his son Joseph. The following year, he deeded son Thomas 99 acres.
By his father's will, Thomas was bequeathed 330 acres, plus lowlands and meadows beside the Pocasset River. He also received 1/3 part of a right in the Commons on the east side of the Seven Mile Line in Providence, and 1/3 part of a right on the west side of said line. He did not live to enjoy this inheritance, having died 10 days after his father and two weeks before his mother.
Administration of Thomas' estate was granted 10/19/1724 to his son Joseph in order to discharge his father's debts, the bringing up of his small children, and to pay legacies.
