Note: Salem town records first mention him in 1650, altho there is considerable evidence that he arrived earlier. Was one of first settlers of Salem Village, now Danvers. His first property was six miles from Salem and five miles from North Reading and consisted of one hundred fifty acres of pasture and meadow land. Acquired this land by purchase from John Pickering on Sept. 18, 1654. No record of the price paid in this transaction, but the same land was purchased from John Higginson by Pickering three years before this transaction for thirteen pounds. A second lot was purchased from Robert Goodale for twenty pounds on January 1, 1662.
Note: According to the "Genealogical Register of the Descendants of Thomas Flint, of Salem", compiled by John Flint and John H. Stone, Thomas Flint, the emigrant ancestor came to America from Wales, according to tradition. He arrived with his brother William sometime before 1640. William is mentioned in Salem records in 1642 at which time there is some evidence to show that their mother was also living in this country. Hanson in "The History of Danvers" says that Willliam landed here about 1640.
First mention of Thomas is in 1650 Salem town records. He was among the first settlers of Salem Village, now South Danvers. His home was located on the Salem and North Reading road, about 6 miles from town of North Reading, near Phelp's mill and brook. He purchased his land of 150 acres "of meadow and pasture land, and lying within the bounds of Salem" from John Pickering in Sept 18, 1654. Price of land not mention, but John Pickering bought it 3 years prior from John Higginson for L13.
A 2nd lot of 50 acres was purchased Jan 1, 1662 of Robert Goodall, for L20 sterling. Is was situated in Salem being "near upon a square", bounded in south by Henry Phelps, west by Phelp's Brook and north and east by Robt Goodall. Deed witness by Giles Cory whose house stood on land that later became part of Flint homestead. (Both Cory and his wife were accused of witchcraft in the Salem Witch trials in 1692. At 80 yrs. old, Cory refused to confess participation and was "pressed to death" by the laying on of stones--the first and only instance of pressing in New England. By refusing to testify, he insured that his property could NOT be confiscated and would be left to his heirs.)
The land of the patriarch remained in the family over 200 yrs. at least until the 1860s when this book was written. Thomas died April 15, 1663. His wife's name was Ann and they had 6 children:
Elizabeth b. Apr 30, 1650
George b. Jan 6 1652
John, b. Oct 3 1655
Anna b. Dec 25, 1657; d. Apr 1663
Joseph, b. 1662.
