Notes for Thomas STOWE Sr.
Became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston in 1638. In 1648, he moved to Concord and owned a farm of 666 acres with his brother Samuel. He preached at Middletown for several years before there was a church. There was apparently some problem between him and the town, as he was relieved of that duty by the General Court in October 1660.[ [464]] In 1670, he got a grant of land from the town on the condition that he build a house there.[ [579]]

Savage's: THOMAS, Braintree, eldest s. of the first John, b. in Eng. ar. co. 1638, m. 4 Dec. 1639, at Roxbury, Mary Gragg, or Griggs, had John, b. 3 Feb. 1641; and Mary, 6 Feb. 1643; by 1648, or earlier, rem. to Concord, there freem. 1653, thence a. 1654, to Middletown, had, also, Thankful, Elizabeth[,] Nathaniel, Samuel, and Thomas. His w. d. 21 Aug. 1680, and he d. prob. early in 1684, as inv. is of 23 Feb. in his will names only John, Nathaniel, and Thomas as his s. and Samuel Bidwell, h. of his dec. d. Elizabeth Perhaps his est. was too small to give any pt. to two otber m. ds. or they may have had full shares on m. A d. says Hinman, 243, m. Samuel Bidwell; Mary m. Spaulding; and Thankful m. a Hill, perhaps John, the sec. of Guilford.
Notes for Mary GRIGGS
There is no actual proof that Mary, wife of Thomas Stowe, is the daughter of Thomas Griggs, but from her age and residence, it is commonly accepted. Her origin in Boxted is based on the unlikely idea that Thomas is the son of John and Martha Griggs. (NEHGR 123:172)
