31 AUG. 1699/00 "OUR BROTHER THO: Spinney deceased after half a year illness & swelling with the dropsie." [Journal of Rev. John Pike]

1671 court ordered that a highway be built from York to the house of Thomas Spinney

Kittery, 18 Dec. 1697. At the motion and request of Mr. Thomas Spinney layd out the northern bounds of his old lot in the Great Cove as also his addition at the Head thereof containing fifteen acres, and in running out the aforesaid bounds as they were shewed to me by the sd Thomas Spinney and John Spinney I find the land in controversie claimed by Mr Christian Remick and improved by Samll Spinney to fall within Mr Thomas Spinney bounds of his fifteen acre lot as is demonstrated in the figure.

Thomas Spinney, the ancestor of all the Spinneys on the American Continent as far as known, was no doubt descended from the one of that name who came from Normandy to England with William the Conqueror. The name according to English heraldry was three times knighted - first De Spiny; second Spiny; and third, Spinney. Thomas Spinney our first ancestor in New England, is said to have been born near Manchester, England, in 1620, the son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Knight) Spinney. When a young man Thomas Spinney went to Wapping Stairs, near London, and shipped to go, "cod hauling' to the Bay of Chaleur. From the fishing ground he was carried tothe piscataway, by a Capt. Fernaid and settled at Kittery. he is said to have been the first schoolmaster of the place. A tradition of the family is, that about thirty years after Thomas settled at Spinney's Neck, a man making an excursion in the woods, called at his house fro refreshment. In the course of conversation they found that they were of the same name and hat they were brothers, it being his brother James, who was an infant when he left home. Thomas Spinney had a grant of 200 acres which lay on both sides of the Great Cove, later called "Spinney's Cove," at the end of what is now called Eliot Neck. Here he built his house and there he lived the rest of his life. In a legal document of the date of 1669, he is called "Thomas Spinney, weaver." In 1651, Mr. Spinney married Margory, who is said to be the daughter of Richard Randall, mariner, who was first of Boston. He removed to Saco as early as 1659, and later was of Dover; wife Elizabeth.
