    • Thomas was a Salisbury Proprietor in 1639 and Freeman in 1640. He was a schoolmaster, Judge, and Captain.

      He came to America as an agent for Sir Fernando Gorges (1566-1647). Sir Gorges founded two Plymouth companies for acquiring and colonizing lands in New England. In 1629 Gorges received the land between the Kennebec and Piscataqua Rivers; and in 1639 the King granted him a charter constituting him proprietor of the Province of Maine; which his son neglected and it was placed under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. In later years, Sir Fernando's grandson sold the rights in 1677 for $6250.
