1The secondary sources I have consulted list the date as c. 1624. The specific date of 1625 comes from the U.S. and International Records database prepared by Yates Publishing and which is available through Ancestry.com.
2Edwin Preston Usher uses the 1650 date. D. Hamilton Hurd argues that Thomas "was in Malden as early as 1654." This date is also accepted by Robert Means Lawrence. Using the first court record as their source, both Alfred Mudge and James Mudge argue that Thomas arrived in Malden before 1657. The 1647 date is extrapolated from the U.S. and International Records database prepared by Yates Publishing and which is available through Ancestry.com.
3Clarence Almond Tory and his co-author Elizabeth Petty Bently use 1648 as the date of marriage.
4Quoted in James Mudge.
5Quoted in Alfred Mudge.
6Some Public Member Trees in Ancestry.com place the date as 1662. However, we have a court record that shows he was still living in 1668.
