  • Notes 
    • Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Worchester County vol1 Author: Ellery Bicknell Crane Call Number: F72.W9C8vol.1 When the "Genealogical Sketch of the Descendants of Thomas Green(e) of Malden, MA, by Samuel S. Green of Providence, R. I.," was written, there were "reasons for supposing that Thomas Green, senior, came from Leicestershire, but no proofs of the fact." If the suggestion that Thomas Green who came over in the "Planter" was his son, is well grounded, the home of the family would seem to have been at St Albans. The first wife of Thomas Green, senior, Elizabeth, whom he married in England, was the mother of all his children. She died August 22, 1658. He married secondly,Frances Cook, September 5, 1659. She was born in 1608, married first to Isaac Wheeler, secondly to Richard Cook, who died October 14, 1658. She had children by the first two husbands; none by the third, Thomas Green. Thomas Green (I) died December 19, 1667. His will, dated November 12, 1667, was proved January 15, 1667-8. In it he mentions five sons, five daughters and his wife. The homestead was situate in that part of Malden which is now included in Melrose and Wakefield. The children of Thomas and Elizabeth Green were: 1. Elizabeth, born about 1628. 2. Thomas, born in 1620 (if it is true, as the ship-records say, that he was fifteen years old when he sailed [in 1635,]: but ages in these lists of emigrants are not to be relied on). He married Rebecca Hills, 1653. [See his sketch later, "Thomas (II)."] 3. John, born in England about 1632, according to the Genealogy; married to Sarah Wheeler, December18, 1660. (Church records give birth of John, son of Thomas, Sr., January 25, 1658). 4. Mary, born in England about 1633; married before 1656 to Capt. John Waite, who was selectman seven years, and representative to the general court, 1666 to 1684. 5. William, born about 1635; married first to Elizabeth Wheeler; married secondly to Isabel (Farmer) Blood. 6. Henry, born 1638; married January 11, 1671-2. 7. Samuel, born March, 1645; married first, 1666, to Mary Cook; secondly, to Susanna (???). 8. Hannah, born 1647; married November 5, 1666, to Joseph Richardson, of Woburn, MA She died May 20, 1721. 9. Martha, born 1650. 10. Dorcas, born in Malden, May 1, 1653; married January11, 1671-2, to James Barrett of Malden, who was born April 6, 1644. She died 1682; he died 1694. Page 49 New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Series, Volume IV Author: William Richard Cutter GREENE Thomas Green, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England about the year 1600, accordingto a deposition that he made August 16, 1662. Thomas Green, probably his son, came to Massachusetts at the age of fifteen in the ship "Planter," which sailed from England, April 2, 1635. The same name and age appear also in the passenger list of the ship "Hopewell," which sailed the next day and are believed to represent the same Thomas Green Jr. Preceding the list of passengers in the "Planter" is a certificate which states that Thomas came from St Albans, Hertfordshire. It seems likely that Thomas Green Sr. came to New England atthe same time or a little earlier, and settled at Lynn and Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was living at Lady Moody's farm at Lynn about 1646. He removed toMalden about 1650, and was living there October 28, 1651, when his wife Elizabeth and daughter Elizabeth signed a petition to the general court. He had a farm of sixty-three acres in the northern part of Malden. He was one of the leading citizens, serving repeatedly on the grand jury and in 1658 as selectman of Malden. The first wife of Thomas, Elizabeth, whom he married in England, was mother of all his children. She died August 22, 1658, and he married (second) September 5, 1659, Frances Cook, who was born in 1608. She married (first) Isaac Wheeler, and (second) Richard Cook,
