Ref: Savage Vol. 2, p 43 Pennfield Genealogy by F. B. Penfield: printed Reading, PA p 300 Life of George Dewey, Rear Admiral U.S.N., and Dewey Family History (Westfield, MA, 1898) p 721-739 Thomas Dewey, from Sandwich, Kent, Eng., to Dorchester, MA., in 1633; enrolled there as freeman, 14 May 1639, wid. Frances Clark, who had an only child, Mary. His Wid., after his death, about 27 Apr 1648, m/3 on 30 Nov 1648, George Phelps, who remov. about 1668 to Westfield, MA. Thomas had been cornet of troops. All of Thomas's children moved to Westfield with their mother and George Phelps, except Isreal.
Ancestry Database: Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-33 indicates that while Thomas is often referred to as cornet of the troop there is no evidence to support this.
Ancestry Database: Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England,
"COMMENTS: The statement has been made that Thomas Dewey was from Sandwich, Kent, but this has no documentary foundation. Dewey was more likely from the West Country, as were so many of the other early settlers of Dorchester. Since Thomas Dewey first appears in Dorchester in 1633, he
may have arrived on the unnamed ship from Weymouth, Dorsetshire, that landed in New England in July of 1633.
Many secondary sources identify Thomas Dewey's wife as the widow of Joseph Clark of Windsor, but Clarence Almon Torrey demolished this claim in 1928, and demonstrated that the identity of the first husband of Frances (_____) (Clark) (Dewey) Phelps remains unknown.
BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: The Dewey family was treated extensively by Louis Marinus Dewey, et al., in Life of George Dewey, Rear Admiral, U.S.N., and Dewey Family History (Westfield, Mass., 1898), cited herein as Dewey Gen. This volume includes extensive transcripts from probate and land records of the immigrant Thomas Dewey."
