Thomas, Became Husband of Anne Collingwood on January 16, 1631. Father of Five children; Jane, Anne, Hester, Anne, and Nicholas.

Thomas Gassaway and his family lived in the older section of London that was known as London Town during the 1600's. They were patrons of St. Margaret's Church Westminster that stands today adjacent to Westminster Abbey. Contemporary with Thomas Gassaway was a Richard Gassaway whose daughters Elizabeth and Jane were christened 6 August 1635 and in the year 1638, respectively, in St. Margaret's.
Thomas was married twice, as three of his children, Mary, Joyce and Thomas, were christened prior to his marriage in 1631 to Anne Collingwood.
The Collingwood family was one of the older families of London but at this point, Anne's family has not been identified. Five burials were recorded in the registers of St. Margaret's Church Westminster through the years 1603-1665. John Collingwood was buried 7 September 1603, George Collingwood, 9 July 1621; and John Collingwood, 25 August 1665; Col. Daniel Collingwood was buried in Westminster Abbey 9 April 1681.
The date of marriage of Thomas Gassaway to Anne Collingwood, the date of his burial; the christening dates of his children, and burial dates of his children who died prior to 1643 were recorded in the parish registers and are extant. The parish records have been copied and published in 1914 under the title "Memorials of St. Margaret's Church Westminster.
The compilers visited St. Margaret's Church Westminster in October 1973 and examined several of the old parish registers at that time.
