Notes for Thomas Scott
Thomas was killed by John Ewe, who was eventually found guilty of causing his death by "misadventure." Thomas evidently did not die immediately, as his will was dictated to Edward Stebbing and Timothy Standley the day he died. The will leaves most of his estate to his wife and his son Thomas, who Thomas Sr. seemed to think may not outlive his wife. The will also mentions multiple daughters who should receive their portions of the estate at marriage or age 20. Thomas died before he could name his overseers. The inventory, totalling £174, 12s, mentions provisions for three daughters.[ [464]]

At his death, Thomas held lands in the "North meadow", as well as lands in Hartford and Tunxis Cepus (Farmington). His daughters married Farmington men, but it does not appear Thomas lived there.

Children married Loomises and Porters, both cloth-making families originally from Essex.

A 40-year-old Thomas Scott sailed from Ipswich, England to Ipswich, MA in Apr 1634 with 9 year old daughter Elizabeth. This is not the correct Thomas - that Elizabeth married John Spofford. (NEHGR 99:237)

Savage’s lists two Thomases, showing the difference [500]:

THOMAS, Hartford 1637, had been, perhaps, of Cambridge, was k. 6 Nov. 1643, careless. by John Ewe, for wh. he. was. fin. L5. to the Col. and £10. to the wid. Aft. being wound. he made nuncup. will, held good, tho. incomplete, as not nam. overseers, provid. for wid. Ann, s. Thomas, and three ds. That s. was infirm in body, or mind, perhaps both, and liv. not long; and the wid. m. 7 Nov. 1644, Thomas Ford; and d. at Northampton, 5 May 1675. One d. Mary m. at the same time with her mo. Robert Porter; ano. Sarah, m. 5 Dec. 1645, John Staley; and the other, Elizabeth m. 3 or 6 Feb. 1649, John Loomis of Windsor.

Lincoln, in 1630, was one Thomas Scott, that may have been the same as the preced. or the foll.[ [500]]
