Thomas Dow was in Newbury in 1639 with wife Phebe and at least one child. His house was in what is now called Newburyport, on the southerly side of Greenleaf's Lane (now State St) leading to Watt's Cellar. He next appears as being admitted a freeman by the General Court June 22, 1642. [ref 85:546] He was poorer than most of his neighbors, for his whole estate was appraised at less than 96 pounds. He lived 14 years in Newbury, during which time his children had not sufficient nurishment. His Newbury house was conveyed to John Bartlett May 29, 1660 (Ipswich series 3:177). Thomas was dead by this time so that the date must be of a belated recording. "Richard Ormsby of Haverhill to Thomas Dow of Newbury, house and house lot cont 4 a more or less, with all appurtenances and 5 accommodations for two and fifty pounds, tenn shilling to be paid as appears by a bil of sale which the aforesaid Thomas Dow has given me under his hand Dated 10 November 1653" (recorded 18 May 1662 Norfolk 1:122). Thomas died May 31, 1654 "ae about 39," the first white man to die in Haverhill. Children: John, Thomas, Stephen, Mary, Martha. [ref 85:549]
