"Andrew,
Here is a Genealogy report from my files. The picture I'm sending is
of David Barker Hopkins, George and Elizabeth's oldest son.
I know you will probably be asking about my citations. Information
that was before my generation was taken from a book that my
grandfather's cousin James Kimble Young, Jr. compiled until his death
in the 1970's. Anything that is in there from my generation on is from
personal interviews with each individual.
Hope you can use this.

6128 Thomas Baker came from England in 1639 and was enrolled as a Free Planter at Milford, Connecticut, one of the original six towns of the New Haven Colony. He remained there for slightly more than a decade. In May 1650 he entered into an agreement with Daniel How [Howe] to purchase all of Howe's accommodations and rights at East Hampton, for the sum of 20 pounds, to be delivered on September 29, 1650. (East Hampton Town Records 1:4-5). On August 24, 1650 Thomas Baker paid the agreed purchase price and moved to East Hampton, Long Island where he lived for the remainder of his life.

At the first election, Thomas Baker was chosen as one of four "Townsmen", who with the Constable, wielded considerable authority in ordering the affairs of the town. He was reelected to this post each succeeding year until 1662. On June 24, 1654, the Court confirmed Thomas Talmage and Thomas Baker as the military officers chosen by the Company raised for the defense of the town. (East Hampton Town Records 1:58). The town records of November 9, 1654 state: "It is ordered that Thomas Baker shall keep the Ordinary." (East Hampton Town Records 1:61). This license to operate a public house, which included the responsibility for dispensing "strong waters" in accordance with town regulations, was retained by him until 1673.

He was a spokesman for East Hampton on numerous occasions. In March 1657/8 he was selected, with John Hand, to go to Connecticut to bring East Hampton under jurisdiction of that colony. In 1665 he was foreman of the first grand jury to sit in the Province of New York, in New York City. In 1666 he was chosen overseer, and in 1667 constable. On May 4, 1671 he was chosen with Rev. Thomas James to negotiate with the towns of Southhold and Southhampton concerning procurement of a charter. (East Hampton Town Records 1:337). People of the three eastern towns objected strongly to paying taxes unless they were levied by a General Assembly chosen by the people. In 1681 Captain Josiah Hobart and Thomas Baker were chosen to represent East Hampton to complain of the lack of a General Assembly. He was Justice of the Peace in 1675 and a patentee in both of the town patents. He was a prominent citizen of East Hampton and served in the town government, in various capacities, for nearly forty years
 
Baker, Thomas (I40592)
 
6129 Thomas Call [Caule] was the son of John & Ann Call (or Richard Call & Edith Bennett). He was born 15 June 1597 in Hernhill, Kent, England, where he worked as a tile maker and a husbandman (livestock owner). On 15 June 1619, his 22nd birthday, he was married to Bennett Harrison in Hernhill, Kent, England. Some records indicate that they may have been the parents of 10 children in all. Children (undocumented): John (1621-1630), Anne (1624-1630), Thomas (1628-1630), Paul (1629-1629), Margaret Call (1631-1667), Thomas Call Jr. (1633-1678), John Call (1636-1697), Mary (1637-1643), Elizabeth (1640-1716) and Mercy Call (1643-1678).
In 1636, at the age of 39, he and his wife, Bennett and three children (Margaret, Thomas and John) boarded the ship "Hercules" at the port of Sandwich, Kent, England and set sail for America arriving in the Bay Colony area near Boston, Massachusetts. They settled in Charlestown, Massachusetts where Thomas worked as a baker. In 1637 the family lived on the banks of the Mystic River near the ferry, about two miles from where the Bunker Hill Monument now stands. Around 1643, he petitioned for leave to sell refreshments. Twenty-two others signed the petition with him, and on 14 May 1645, Thomas was "allowed to keep victualing in his house for strangers". Thus, Thomas was granted the first license for the sale of beer on the "Mystic Side". Three daughters were born during the time that they lived in Charlestown: Mary, Elizabeth and Mercy. His wife Bennett passed away in 1644 shortly after giving birth to Mercy, and Thomas later married Joanna Shepardson, the widow of Daniel Shepardson. The family moved sometime around 1649 to Malden, Massachusetts, a town across the river from Charlestown. He died at the age of 79 years on 17 May 1676 in Malden, Middlesex County, Massachusetts and was buried in the Sandy Bank (Bell Rock) Cemetery, located at Medford and Green Streets.

His will, dated 23 November 1670 and proved 3 October 1676, gave real estate and a pair of black oxen to his son John, made bequests to his three living daughters, left 10 shillings to each grandchild as they became of age and made Thomas the executor and chief beneficiary of his estate which was appraised at about 150 Pounds.

~~~~~~~~~
Thomas was the son of Samuel Fox of England and the grandson of John Fox of Boston, Lincolnshire, England, the Martyrologist. Son Jabez, born 1647, Baptised at Concord, Harvard College graduate in 1665, to bear up the uncertain traditional, ascribed to him of descent from the author of the "Book of Martyrs".It should be noted that there were two men named Thomas Fox who lived in Concord soon after its settlement. The elder Fox came from England in one of the vessels of Gov. Winthrop's Fleet in 1630. He later moved to Cambridge and is known as Thomas Fox of Cambridge. Both Thomases, as well as Richard of Glastonbury, Connecticut has a distinct line of widely scattered descendents. They may have been related, but proof is lacking.Thomas was a Greeman at Concord, Mass. 1638. Removed to Cambridge in 1649"

On 3-12-1638/39, William Taylor, son of William Taylor of Boddington, County Cornwall, carpenter, transferred his indenture with the consent of all from Mr. John Atwood to Thomas LIttle. Little moved to Marshfield, where he became constable on 6-3-1662. He bought farm land in Marshfield which had belonged to Maj. William Holmes, deceased, and on 6-3-1662 the court ordered that in view of his many improvements of the land, if anyone should show better title in the future, such person would have to pay him fully for his improvements. On 6-9-1665, he was fined $1/10 for not keeping secret the proceedings of the grand jury, of which he was a member. when he refused to pay rents claimed by Mrs. Rachel Daenport for the land of the late William Holmes, the court on 5-1-1666 awarded her $15, which, because of his improvements, was less than she had claimed. On 8-14-1672, administration of the estate of Thomas Little of Marshfield was given to his widow, Anna Little. His will dated 5-12-1671, inventory 4-4-1672, mentioned his wife; his sons Isaac, Ephraim, Thomas, and Samuel; his grandson John Jones; and his servant Sarah Bonney. His son Thomas, died in King Philip's War at Rehoboth, and in his will we learn that his father Thomas also had daughters Ruth, Hannah, Patience, and Mercy. The younger Thomas died without having married. The senior Thomas Little also had a daughter Abigail, who married Josiah Keene and predeceased her father. Little, Thomas (I13186)

6137 Thomas Prince (1600-1673), Governor of the Colony of Plymouth, was first elected into this office in the year 1634; afterwards, in 1638. When Governor Bradford died, in 1657, he was chosen to succeed him, and continued to be chosen as long as he lived.

For many years he was one of the assistants, and commissioner to the United Colonies. He was one of this respectable body when the disputes happened between Massachusetts and the other colonies about the war with the Dutch, and joined heartily in the letter of reproof which the colony of Plymouth sent to [the] General Court. [The historian,] Mr. Morton gives him the character 'of a very worthy, pious gentleman, capable of the office of government.'

He was a man of great integrity, a just man in private life, and so steady to his trust, as never to betray the public confidence reposed in him. [The historian,] Douglass says, he had 'strong natural powers, but no learning.'

He was a friend to learning and religion, whatever his own acquirements might be, according to the account we have 'that the most able men in the colony thought no method would be more effectual in preventing the churches being overwhelmed with ignorance, than the election of Mr. Prince to the office of Governor; and this point being gained, the adverse party from that time sunk into confusion.'

He also procured revenues for the support of grammar schools. It was this gentleman, with six others, who first settled the town of Eastham. He removed there, in 1644, and returned to Plymouth, when he was fixed in the chair of government.

Governor Prince died, March 29, 1673, in the 73rd year of his age. Having lived in New England from the year 1621.

6139 Thomas was a "yeoman" and "farmer", he owned part of Moulton's Island and in 1693 sold ten acres of it to Thomas Mitchell. In 1688 his land in Charlestown was taxed and on 26Jun1693 he, together with his wife sold land in Charlestown. On 20Mar1694, Thomas, along with seventy-three other were alloted in the common lands as a proprietors and freeholders of Malden.

In 1713 he was one of those building a gallery in the Meeting House, and on 28 Jun 1727 he and his son, Thomas, signed a statement concerning the Meeting House. Burditt, Thomas (I88)
 
6140 Thomas was a farmer and "gentlemen," his home was near the Charlestown line. In 1713 he was hired by Peter Tufts to act as town Constable in his place. Thomas was a prominent citizen of Malden and a large land owner.

Burditt, Lieutenant Thomas Jr. (I86)
 
6141 Thomas was a millwright and farmer by trade, he built the first mill in Lancaster and Bolton,MA and would agree to built the first mill in Canada, but only for the purchase of his liberty. Thirty years had past since Thomas Jr. made his escaped from Lancaster with his father's family during King Philip's War, when in October 1705, during Queen Anne's War the Abnaki Indians and French forces attacked Englishsettlements in New England, making their way as far south as Hadley,MA. The French authorities stimulated the body of French half-breeds and Indians to make a raid on the British colonies. They started with 700 men for Hadley. The citizens had anticipated trouble form the Indians and had procured from the Goverment a company of soldiers, which was called the "Flower of Essex," for their protection, and were building a stockade fort for their defence, intending to winter there. They had grain in Deerfield which they wished to procure and sent teams for the prupose, and also sent the company of soliers to protect the teams. The grain was loaded and started for home, the soldiers protecting it the while. Going through a swamp near a brook (now known as Bloody Brook), they fell into an ambush of Indians. The soldiers and teamsters were all killed, except one soldier and one teamster, who esacped to Hadley and carried the news. Hadley quickly organized, with the help of an English(possibly Lord Goff) stranger who happened upon the town. The 700 French and Indians were soon on a retreat, 200 of whom returned to Canada, the remaining 500 of them changed their course to Lancaster. When they arrived there, Lancaster again became the scene of a bloody massacre. The house of Peter Joslin was first entered, in which two woman and two children were killed. Mr. Joslin himself returning from work,found his family weltering in their blood. Many citizens were shot down in their fields and the inhabitants were left to defend themselves in their garrison houses. Thomas Sawyer's Sr. garrison proved a safe defense against the Indians. There were numbers of French, among whom was one high French officer who is said to have been mortally wounded while in Lancaster, which much exasperated them. Thomas Jr., with his young son, Elias, were taken prisoner from his own house, and in company with John Biglow, they were taken to Canada. On arriving there, Biglow and Elias were delivered into the hands of the French Governor; but Thomas Sawyer Jr., they would not deliver up for money or any other consideration. He had been brave and caused the death of several of their number. He was destined to torture. He was taken out, fastened to a stake, the fagots(bundles of sticks), placed around him ready for a fire, and the Indians were assembled ready to rend the air with their hideous cries, mingled with his groans of torture. At that moment a man appeared as a Catholic Friar, exhibiting what he claimed to be the keys of purgatory, and told them if they burned Sawyer he would unlock purgatory and pitch them all in. Superstition prevailed, and then unbinding Sawyer they delivered him into the hands of the French Governor. Thomas Jr. told the French Governor that there was a good place for a saw mill on the Chamblee River. The French were very much in need of a saw mill, as there were none in Canada. Neither had any man competent to build one. Thomas proposed that he and Biglow would build a mill, and the compensation should be their freedom. The terms were accepted. In a years's time they completed the mill and recieved their freedom, but young Elias was kept another year to teach others how to keep the mill in order and run it. He was then amply rewarded and returned home. While in Canada, Elias formed the aquaintance of a young lady, whom he promised to go back and marry after he had visited his friends. She gave him a little brown earthen plate as a memento, which in 1883 was in the possession of Elsworth Sawyer, who says that Elias regretted while on his death bed that he did not go back and marry her. Instead of marrying the Canandian lady, he did marry Beatrice Houghton. The attack of 1705 was the final major attack on the town of Lancaster by Indians. Sawyer, Thomas Jr. (I332)
 
6142 Thomas was a Selectman for 18 years in Milton and during King Philip's War, Thomas was a Lieutenant under Capt. Samuel Wadswworth. Thomas was commssioned Captain in 1689 and in 1690, during King William's War(part of the War of the Grand Alliance), was on the second expedition east to Canada, under the command of Major Benjamin Church. The expedition was a result of the French and Indian raids in New York and New England. The British and Colonial forces, main objective was to take Quebec, and the French objective was to take Boston, both failed, but the French resolved to recaptured Port Royal. A considerable amount is written about these events by Thomas Church in 1716, son of Benjamin Church, from these early documnents, a lengthy account of the history and actions can be found. Vose, Captain Thomas (I495)
 
6143 Thomas was a trader in beaver pelts and was active in the Springfield militia, specializing in scouting and translation. Oral history has him trading with Indians and adopting their ways to a degree that caused some friction with townspeople. Ironically, after living to a great age, he perished in the burning of Springfield-- fighting with the settlers against marauding Indians. Cooper, Lieutenant Thomas (I43516)
 
6144 Thomas was the first white child born in Lynn,MA. His father, who
bore the same name of Thomas was one of the earliest settlers, and
lived on the east side of Federal street, a few rods south of the mill
brook, owning all the land, on that side, between the Turnpike and
Marion street(1883). He was a man of integrity, and one in whose
judgement much reliance was placed. And he seems to have had a very
fair education. In the March Term of 1663 he was tried before the
Quarterly Count on an action of Battery for striking the wife of
William Longley, when the following deposition was taken: "The
testimony of Elizabeth Newhall ye wife of John Senier and Mary Haven
whoe sayth ye Thomas Newhall Junier was desired for to howld a poole

6146 Thomas's occupation is listed as Tailor. He arrived in Salem, Essex, Massachusetts on June 13, 1630 French, Thomas (I45459)
 
6147 Thomas, born in England, was living in Malden,MA as early as 28 Oct
1651, there he was Selectman in 1653, 1658, and 1659. His son Thomas
Jr. was also known as Trumpter Greene. 
Green, Thomas (I939)
 
6148 Thomas, Isabel, and their three children came from Nazeing, county Essex, England to Boston in 1632 on the "LION". They lived in Roxbury first (freeman there on March 4, 1633/4), removing to Springfield in 1639 and Wethersfield in 1640. John Burwell and Thomas Ufford were two of the men in Roxbury who joined a party of settlers lead by the Rev. Peter Prudden to settle in Milford by 1644. He was admitted to the Milford church on Feb. 11, 1645. It is estimated that he married ISABEL BRYAN about 1621 in England and her death is estimated at around 1654.
His inventory taken on December 6, 1660, showed that he had land in Milford and Stratford amounting to 289 pounds, 12 shillings & 7 pence. The place of his burial is unknown. He married second Elizabeth, the widow of Nicholas Theale some time between 1654 and 1669 in Stamford, Conn. She died in Stamford on Dec. 27, 1660. He may be buried in Stamford, but it is more likely that he was buried in Milford. 
Ufford, Thomas Jr. (I43905)
 
6149 Thomas, son of Abraham and Katherine(Howe) Kimberly, was one of the
founders of New Haven,Connecticut and an original signer of the
Connecticut "Fundamental Agreement" of 04 June 1639. He was choosen
Corporal of the New Haven Train Band, Aug 1642 and Clerk for the
Military Company, April 1655; and Marshall of the New Haven Colony
throughtout most of its existence. He was chosen Selectman in
1651,1663, and 1664, and Constable, 1666. Thomas was a member in good
standing of Davenport's church, and was able to argue and quote
scripture against heretical views, as in 1646 when he tried to convert
Mrs. Moore from her disapproved religious views. He showed both
courage and conscientiousness in admitting his fault and
unfaithfulness in advising Jeremiah Howe to allow a prisoner to
escape. In 1649 he bought the house, barn and homelot of Richard
Perry, a prominent citizen who was returning to England. Thomas was
literate, and a tailor by trade.[CI:174:?4:CI]

6150 Thoughts from Chris Shepard Tuesday, Jan 6, 2009 at 10:16 AM EST
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I sat down the other night and tried to think about what grandpa really meant to me. After giving it some thought and recounting a plethora of memories regarding him, grandma and their house; I realized that this would be the best way to pay tribute to him. Some of the best childhood memories I have happened at that house, and he was there for most if not all of them. One of the earliest ones I can remember is me, I don't think I was much more than 6 or 7, riding in his truck back to his house to meet my mother. On the way there he had to stop at the drug store. I waited patiently in the trunk and when he came back he had bought me a candy bar. He handed it to me while saying, ?Don't tell your mother?. I never did. I also remember the few weeks one summer when I helped him paint the fence at the cemetery he worked at. Mostly I remember climbing a rickety ladder 15 feet into the air to paint the sign that was above the cemetery entrance. It basically involved me hanging over the ladder with a can of spray paint trying to get the sign covered in the wind. I did manage to get the sign panted but I also managed to get a fair amount on grandpa's truck. That was another case where I didn't tell. After recounting these and many others I realized that this was a gift that he'd given me and given all of us. These memories are something that I'll have forever and something that no one can take away. I'm very grateful that he was my grandfather and I wouldn't change anything about him or about the times we had together. I always enjoyed stopping by to visit him, as he sat in the garage watching the world go by. I always enjoyed when we drove some place together in his truck, smelling of cigars and going 35 miles per hour. I always enjoyed helping him around the house. Either fixing that garage of his or taking Max out for a walk. He was my grandpa and I'll miss him very much. But I know that these memories, these times we had together happened. And no one can make them un-happen. It's comforting to know that someplace, sometime he's always working out in his garden or he's always sitting out in the garage and that he's happy.
