|Birth: ||unknown, England|
|Death: ||Apr. 27, 1648|
He actually died and was buried in Windsor, Hartford, CT, but there is a stone for him in this cemetery and I found no stone for him in Windsor. His burial plot in Windsor is not known. This stone was most likely placed by one of Jason Dewey's heirs. The style of this stone suggests it was placed in the 1860's or 1870's.
A great deal of inaccurate information has been written about Thomas, but it's generally agreed that his birth year was in the first decade of the 1600's. That he emigrated from Sandwich, ENG in 1633. That his wife's name was Mrs. Frances Clark (her maiden name remains unknown). Frances later married George Phelps and most of the Dewey family moved with them to Westfield.
He became a freeman in 1634 at Dorchester, MA. He moved to Windsor in 1635 where he married Frances on 22 Mar 1638. He was a juror in 1642 and 1644.
