Notes for Thomas WOODMANSEE
Parentage established through a 1707 deed in which Thomas, mariner of Shrewsbury, NJ, quitclaimed all interest in the estate of his father Gabriel, late of New London, to his brother John, for £10. In 1720, Joseph Woodmansee, of Groton, quitclaimed for £8 his interest and that of his brother Thomas in their father Gabriel's estate to their brother Gabriel.

His first wife was Hannah ____, whose identity is revealed only by lists of witnesses at Quaker meetings at Shewsbury. Thomas and Hannah Woodmansee appear from 1699 to 1706, and Thomas continues to appear until 1710.

His first son Thomas was probably by his first wife. Sarah, Elizabeth, Hannah, Margaret, John, David and Lydia are ambiguous, but as they were not married until the 1730s, they were likely born after 1706, when Hannah seemingly passed away.

Thomas’ will directs that his plantation in Shrewsbury be sold, and also that his interest in his father’s land in New London be sold. His son Thomas sold the New London land on 22 Jan 1733/4. Thomas got 5 shillings, John, David, Gabriel and James, £5, Sarah, Elizabeth, Hannah, and Margaret £4, son-in-law Epheraim Potter and daughters Leadea, Abigail and Ann, £4. Wife Mary got the rest. The will was proven 18 Jan 1737. [665]
Notes for Mary Ware?
Thomas’ second wife Mary is named in his will. An account by a descendant in the Toms River (NJ) Courier in 1930 gives her last name as Ware. The “Williams” often seen as the name of his first wife may come from the George Williams who served as an executor to his will dated 22 Sep 1733. [665]
