FATHER MOTHER JOHN HANSON Mary Frances PRITCHARD

BIRTH, DEATH & POSSIBLE BURIAL Thomas was born circa 1586. Probably in probably London, Middlesex, England. Previous sources have claimed that Thomas was born in Ipswich, England; however, it is more MISCELLANEOUS There is the "Hanson Memorial Tablet" in Dover - on the west side of Knox Marsh Road, just before the Madbury/Dover line in honor of Thomas Hanson. This monument provdies the connection MIGRATION & RESIDENCES Thomas emigrated first to Salem, Essex co., MA. He then removed to Kittery, York co., ME and finally to Dover, Strafford co., NH in 1639[1]. Thomas had a Land Grant of 100 acre FREEMAN Thomas made Freeman on 4 May 1661[1,5] and took the oath of Fidelity on 5 April 1661[2]. TOWN SERVICE He did considerable town service: as Constable from 1663-1664; Grand juror in 1662; and petit juror, highway supervisor and others town officers[2]. CHURCH MEMBERSHIP Thomas was the founder of a family of Quakers in the U.S. Ironically, Thomas himself was not known as an active Quaker. The influence seems to have come from his wife, Mary. His pro ESTATE Thomas' will was written in 1666[1,2] and proved on 27 June 1666, naming his wife Mary as executrix[6]. The full text of Thomas' will reads: "These presents wittnesse that I Thomas Hanson Being in perffect mind & memory though weak in Body doe make this my Last Will & testament, ffirst I Bequeath my soul to God that gave itt & my body to y

signed seleid and deliverd I Thomas hanson (seal) in the presence of us Richard Walderne Samuell hale [Proved June 27, 1666]"[7]

MARRIAGES Before 1636 when Thomas was 50, he first married a woman about whom we know nothing. Circa 1641 when Thomas was 55, he second married Mary PAUL, in Dover, Strafford co., NH[3,10,11,12,13] b Mary was the prime religious influence in the house and was an ardent Quaker. She was fined in 1659 for being "delinquent" (absent) from meeting for 13 days and for attending Quaker meetings instead.
