  • Name Thomas BOREMAN  [1
    • The exact date of Thomas Boreman's coming to New England is not known. He was probably her as early as 1634, but its first found on record in March, 1634/5, when he was made freeman by the General Court of Massachusetts. His first grant of land is recorded at Ipswich in 1635...

      The family name of Thomas Boreman's wife, Margaret, has not been found, neither does it appear whether they were married before or after coming to New England. Judging from what can be gathered as to the ages of their children, it seems probable that their marriage took place not long before leaving England, at which time Thomas was about 33 years old, and his wife no doubt considerably younger; her surviving him some seven years indicates this. She was, of course, born in England ,and may have been a daughter or sister of one of the Ipswich settlers. Her title of Mris or Mistress implies the respectability of her family. If their children all lived to grow up, their number was not a large one for that day. It should not be forgotten that their family included also Thomas Boreman's bother Daniel, who lived to be at 65, and who, though he makes no figure in Ipswich records, is to Thomas Boreman's descendants a most import personage, without the knowledge of whose existence they would have had no certainty of their English ancestry.

      Thomas Boreman's will (the original on file in the Probate Office inSalem) was made Dec. 17, 1670, when he was just past his 69th year. He aded to it a codicil dated May 3, 1673, and his inventory was taken on the 26th of the same month, showing that he died in May, 1673, at the age of 72 years and 7 months. It is interesting to note that his cousin Samuel of Wethersfield, fourteen years younger, had died in April, about one month before.

      Mrs. Margaret Boreman, the widow, died Nov. 25 1679 ( Essex County Records at Salem). [1]
