Quoting from Gary Boyd Roberts' Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists:

"When Taunton, under colonel, later admiral Robert Blake, was besieged by the royalists, Thomas served as captain in Cromwell's army, 1645. Later, he supported a wounded soldier's pension claim at Taunton Court of Sessions. He gave his New England sons power of attorney for property there 14 Jan 1664. He and they traded to the Azores from both sides of the Atlantic. He was buried at St. Mary Magdalen church, Taunton, Somerset, 7 FEb 1672."

After he returned to England, he married Frances Shattuck 10 Feb 1640. She was actually his cousin, since her mother was Dorothy, daughter of Thomas's uncle Thomas Trowbridge. I have wondered if she might have been unwilling to remain in New England. They seem to have traveled back and forth at least once, since they were listed in New have in 1643 as a family of 5 (Thomas, Frances and the three younger sons). Thomas's oldest son John remained in England, where he died in 1653. So Thomas seems to have kept property and business dealings on both sides of the water.

All of this information is found in the book I mentioned above.
