    Notes 
    • 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]
