From "A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, before 1692" by James Savage : "FOX, THOMAS, Cambridge, freem. perhaps, of 1644, selectman 1658, and often after, for sec. w. m. Ellen, wid. of Percival Green, wh. d. 27 May 1682, as Harris gives the inscript. aged 82, and took ano. w. 21 Apr. foll. Elizabeth [[vol. 2, p. 197]] wid. of Charles Chadwick, wh. 22 Feb. 1685, left him again a widower, and he took, 16 Dec. foll. ano. w. Rebecca Wythe, wid. of Nicholas, and he d. 25 Apr. 1693, aged 85. Prob. he had no ch. exc. Jabez, b. 1647, H. C. 1665, to bear up the uncert. tradit. honor, ascribed to him, of descent from the autb. of the Book of Martyrs. For these two Thomases, I have varied from Farmer in the dates, respectively, of freem.'s oath. The reason may be very slight, but the Concord man seems to have been the elder of the two; and tho. of the four names of freem., above and below those of these two Foxes, three are of Concord, yet two of them heard of not indeed bef. 1639, while Hayward, of those adm. early in 1638, was of Concord 1630, and, of course, Hutchins of Cambridge might seem to balance him; still the preponderance is for Concord. Certainly the Smeedly two were here some yrs. bef. being adm. freem. Bond boldly conject. p. 765, that he was the same as Thomas of Concord, in wh. I dare not follow his lead. He thereby makes the wid. of Percival Greene to be third w. and the wid. of Chadwick fourth w. of Thomas Fox. Seven of this name had, in 1834, been gr. at Harv. and equal number at Yale, Brown, and Dart. coll."

His inv. has proof in the titles of the books of honora. regard for letters. See Geneal. Reg. IV. 174. Bradford's Memoir of him is in Young's Chron. of the Pilgr. 461.

It may be useful to mark the error of so valua. an auth. as Baylies, in II. 6, where he gives to our most glorious of the Mayflower's passeng. three ch. Lucretia, Mary, and William, and is even so rash as to say, two of them were b. in America.

From "A Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, before 1692" by James Savage: " OLDHAM, JOHN, Plymouth, came in the Ann 1623 with a comp. so that in div. of lds. next yr. he was reckon. for ten heads; in less than two yrs. gave office by siding with Rev.
