Thomas GREENE [Parents]-6189 was born on 4 Aug 1662 in Providence, Providence, Rhode Island. He died on 1 Feb 1699 in Newport, Newport, Rhode Island. Thomas married Anne GREENE-17941 on 27 May 1686 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island.

BIOGRAPHY: After the Great Swamp Fight destroyed the once powerful Narragansett tribe and King Philip's War was over, the Greenes were un-hampered in their move to Potowomut.  In 1684, James Greene, son of Surgeon John Greene, established his home on Hunt's River at what was to be called "The Forge."  It was in this house that General Nathanael Greene was born in 1742. Two years after James Greene established himself in Potowomut, his nephew, Thomas Greene, built his home near the mouth of the Potowomut River, near Marsh Point. He built this house for his bride, Anne, in 1686. The house, greatly altered, is presently one of the wings of Hopelands, now part of the Rocky Hill School. Thomas Greene was drowned in the winter of 1698-99 while returning from one of his trading trips to Newport. He left six daughters and one son. The son, John, then only eight yeas old inherited the estate.  John became one of Warwick's most prosperous farmers, owning large herds of cattle, sheep and horses. John Greene, twice married, was the father of eleven sons and daughters. He improved his farms and acquired lands in West Greenwich, Coventry and other areas of Warwick. - Familysearch.org

Anne GREENE-17941 was born on 13 Mar 1662 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. She died on 7 Apr 1713 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. Anne married Thomas GREENE-6189 on 27 May 1686 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island.

Thomas GREENE [scrapbook]-11933 was born on 4 Jan 1628 in Salisbury, Cotmty Wilts, England. He died on 5 Jun 1717 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. He was buried in Stone Castle Lot, Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island. Thomas married Elizabeth BARTON-11934 on 30 Jun 1659 in Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island.

BIOGRAPHY: Thomas Greene lived in a great stone house in Warwick RI. It was here that neighbor Wickes stayed the night during an Indian raid. He left the next day and was murdered. This was just one example of the intermingling of the Wickes and the Greenes. Look at a genealogy of two families and the two names abound.

Thomas Greene purchased the house in 1660 from his brother-in-law, James Sweet. In 1795, soon after inheriting it, Thomas Wickes Greene, the great-great grandson of Thomas Greene, had the house demolished, and replaced it with a wooden structure which was still standing "in good condition" as of 1898. Some of the materials from the stone house were used for the cellar walls of another nearby dwelling, and incorporated into some of the stone walls on the family farm. In 1870 the property was finally sold out of the family by Richard Greene, the grandson of Thomas Wickes Greene, perhaps because he had no son to pass it on to. The property was then sold and resold more than a dozen times before it came into the hands of its present owner, Elks Lodge No. 2196, a building for which was erected around 1962. Warwick historian Don D'Amato believes the stone castle once stood near the west edge of the Elks' parking lot.

6. THOMAS -^ GREENE, of "Stone Castle" (John'), was bom and baptized at Salisbury, Cotmty Wilts, England, June 4, 1628, and came with his parents to New England in 1635. A few years after their settlement at Warwick, and soon after the organization of the government (1648), he had a home lot assigned to him. On September 30,1660,one year after his marriage, he purchased of his brother-in-law, James Sweet, a stone house at Old Warwick, which had been built at the earliest settlement of the town, situated on the north side of "The Street" and nearly opposite the lane which leads to the only wharf in Warwick Cove. This was the only stone dwelling-house south of Providence on the mainland, and here he and his posterity resided until 1795, when, to the regret of many, the house was replaced by a wooden structure, now (1898) in good condition. During King Philip's War, on the 13th of March, 1675-6, the General Assembly of the Colony, in session at Newport, sent a message to the people of Warwick, stating that the Colony was unable to defend them and advising them to seek safety at the island of Rhode Island, promising them hospitality from the inhabitants of Newport and Portsmouth. Many removed to the island, and on the night of March  16th and 17th every house in Warwick was burned, excepting Thomas Greene's "Stone Castle," where he and his wife and six children, with some of his friends and neighbors, remained in safety, and it thus became the garrison house during the war. John Wickes a neighbor who sought its shelter,was slain. went out in the morning after the burning of the town to look for his cattle, against the advice of his friends, thinking the "Indians who had been so friendly to him would not harm him," but he was killed and quartered by a marauding party of Indians, and his head set on a pole. His remains were brought in as they were found and biiried in three separate graves, marked with rough stones, near the " Stone Castle. " In 1880, Benjamin Greene Arnold, a descendant of the fifth generation from Thomas Greene and of the sixth from John Wickes, erected a headstone to his memory (see Appendix I.). The family residing at the stone house and their descendants were known thereafter as the "Stone Castle Greenes." Thomas Greene was Commissioner, 1662; Deputy for ten years (1667- 84) and Assistant for five years (1678-85). He died Jtme 5, 1717, and with five generations of descendants lies buried near the original site of his dwelling. He left the homestead to his son Richard, and land at Coweset to the other children (Appendix I.). He married, June 30, 1659, Elizabeth, daughter of Rufus and Margaret Barton of Old Warwick, born 1637, died August 20, 1693 (see No. 27). Rufus Barton, father of Elizabeth, came to Portsmouth, R. I., about 1640, to escape persecution from the Dutch at New Amsterdam, he being a Quaker. He received a grant of land at Portsmouth, 1641. He probably went to Warwick soon after the purchase of Shawomet, but was not one of the original purchasers. He was town magistrate and in 1648 was sent with a special message to the government of Massachusetts Bay-. On arriving at Dedham and learning that the General Court at Boston had adjourned, he wrote a letter to Governor Winthrop (see Austin's Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, p. 250). His death occurred soon after his return (1648). As he died intestate, the Town Council made an order for the distribution of his estate, but when his only son, Benjamin, applied to the Council eighteen years after, for protection of his property, this will or order could not be found and another will was substituted as nearly like the original as could be remembered. It mentions "daughters Elizabeth and Phebe each at the age of 18 or day of marriage."
