Siblings: Nathaniel 1612-1640, John Axtell 1614- , William Axtell 1616- , Daniel Axtell 1622-1660, Samuel Axtell 1624- , Sarah Axtell 1628-1665, Joane Axtell 1630- , Ann Axtell 1633-1687

Brother Daniel Axtell was a colonel under Cromwell, and he was executed for his share in the death of Charles 1st. He was hanged at Tyburn.


Thomas Axtell married Mary Rice

Son Henry was born just two years before the family left England for the New World

Children: Mary Axtell, *Henry Axtell 1641-1676, Lydia Axtell 1644-

The family landed at MA in October of 1642 and purchased 5 acres of land in Sudbury from Edward Rice.

Three short years later, Thomas died, leaving his wife and three children on their own in a new land. His widow remarried.
