Who did Thomas Nash b. 1588/9 of New Haven marry?

I've been searching for information about Thomas Nash's time in Leiden (Leyden) before he arrived in Guilford/New Haven and found this book (The England and Holland of the Pilgrims by Henry Martyn Dexter , Morton Dexter). It seems well researched but lists his wives as 1st Margaret Porter and 2nd Margaret Stuart (widow). I've seen this information elsewhere too. Does anyone have an opinion about this? Dexter even shows the date and witnesses to his marriage. Could the widow Margaret Stuart be Margery Baker? It would still fit with Margery's grandfather's will naming her husband as Thomas Nash of New England, as she would have been by that time.

I have the Jacobus Families of Ancient New Haven books. Vol VI is not online, other than searching, so this is the information that I see in the book.  Some of the information is a little different than what is on his profile, but it matches for his wife.

Thomas Nash, d May 12 1658 in New Haven, CT.  He married Margery, da Nicholas & Mary (Hodgett) Baker, who d after Feb 11 1655/6 and bfore Aug 1 1657.

5 children - John 1615 - 1687, Joseph d 1678, Mary d 1683, Sarah m Robert Talmadge, Timothy 1626-1699.

Since that profile has the PGM Project as a PM, they will probably reply to your question, also.  I don't see anything on his profile that they have any doubts about who his wife is.

What's on his profile, is what's in Families of Anc New Haven as Linda mentioned. Jacobus is highly regarded. It's also what's in The Nash Family, Or, Records of the Descendants of Thomas Nash  pg. 17 and p. 267

Is it right? I'm intrigued, but I think I need more information

The estimated dates of births of the Thomas Nash children are all before the 1628 betrothal to Marg. Stuart. 

You've referenced a will by Margaret's grandfather naming her wife of Thomas Nash. Wikitree doesn't have anything about this will and I don't see it at American Ancestors. Can you point to it, so I can read it?
