Is there anything known about the Thomas Jones of Martha's Vineyard written up in Vol. 2 of Charles Banks?

He signed over his real and personal property to Peter Jenkins in 1676 in consideration of care and maintenance for rest of his natural life.  I'm not sure if he is one of the unprofiled TJs listed in profile Jones-3291.  Thank you.

To embellish on the above, Banks cites Caulkins "History of New London, CT" p. 265.  Pages 69/70 are probably more revealing, citing one Thomas Jones accompanying Richard Blinman (minister? of Chepstowe, Monmouthshire, England), along w/ perhaps 20 families, to New London from Gloucester, Cape Ann, Mass. Bay in 1650/51. Jones' stay was short as was Philip Taber's of "Martin's Vineyard."  This ties in w/ Banks' finding that a number Martha's Vineyard's early settlers were from the Essex area of Mass. Bay Colony.  Banks state Jones was a weaver and his widow was named Ann.  Thank you.
