Captain Thomas Marshall came to Lynn in 1635. He embarked on the 'James', of
London, on the 17th of July. Soon after his arrival was admitted as a freeman.
With many others, he returned to England, to join the ambitious designs of
Cromwell, by whom he was made a Captain. He served in the army of the anarch for
several years and returned to Lynn laden with military glory. He was six times
chosen representative. He purchased the tavern on the west of Saugus River,
which Mr. Joseph Armitage had opened. Here, with all the frankness and
hospitality of a 'fine old English gentleman' he kept open doors for more than
forty years. Mr. John Dunton, who passed through Lynn in 1686, thus mentions him
in his journal; "About two of the clock I reached Capt. Marshall's house, which
is halfway between Boston and Salem; here I staid to refresh nature with a pint
of sack and a good fowl. Capt. Marshall is a hearty old gentleman, formerly one
of Oliver's soldiers, upon which he very much values himself. He had all the
history of the civil wars at his fingers end and if we may believe him, Oliver
did hardly anything that was considerable without his assistance; and if I'd
have staid as long as he'd have talked, he'd have spoiled my ramble to Salem. "
He had two sons, John, born 14 January 1659; and Thomas, who removed to Reading.
