Thomas and Frances Crippen, who immigrated from England to the Plymouth Colony before 1665. Around 1680 they helped found East Haddam, Connecticut.3

6 March 1665 On 6 March 1665/66 the court required a bond of £20 from John Robinson, plus £10 each from two sureties, for his future good behavior, he having been convicted of some lascivious speeches and actions toward Frances, the wife of Thomas Crippin. Crippin was also accused of being a "pandor of his wife in lightnes and laciviousenes," and he, not being able to find sureties, was required to bind over to the court £40 in livestock and other property. Jonathan Hatch was convicted of unnecessarily frequenting the house of Thomas Crippin, giving rise to "suspision of dishonest behavior" towards Crippin's wife, and he was warned to keep away from her or "hee will answare it att his peril."4

1685 Thomas Crippen and Moses Rowley bought land in Quaker colony called Falmouth, 1685-6 called Society of Saconesst.   Were they Quakers????
