BIRTH: About 1605 (aged 30 on 6 April 1635). Husbandman who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the "Planter." (On 6 April 1635, "husbandman Francis Newcom," aged 30, and "wife & 2 children Rachell Newcom," aged 20, "Rachell Newcom," aged 2½, and "Jo[hn] Newcome," aged 9 months, were enrolled at London as passengers for New England on the Planter). First settled in Boston; later moved to Braintree. Death: "Francis Nucom who was accounted an hundred years old died upon the 27th day of May 1692" at Braintree. (Judging by the age on the passenger list in 1635 and the date of marriage, this age at death is exaggerated by more than a decade.)
Married at All Saints, Sudbury, Suffolk, 27 May 1630, Rachel Brackett, daughter of Peter and Rachel (_____) Brackett.
The marriage of several of the children of Francis Newcomb to men and women of Dedham and Watertown suggests some close connection with those towns.
