" THOMAS WHEELER (Thomas), born in Cranfield about 1591; died in Fairfield, Conn., 1654; married at Cranfield, May 5, 1613, Ann Halsey, who died in Fairfield in 1659.
His will is dated Jan. 16, 1653-54; inventory Aug. 23, 1654. Her will probated Aug. 1659. His will mentions sons John and Thomas and brother Thomas Lieutenant.
Children baptized at Cranfield:

v. Sarah, bapt. Dec. 27, 1627 or 1628*; m. Thomas Sherwood, Jr."

There is no mention of Joan Bryan as a wife of the son Thomas Wheeler here. Documentation in early literature seems to be lacking.
Also there is uncertainty as whether the Thomas born in 1620 is the son of Thomas born 1589/90 or the son of Thomas born 1561/2.
