My ancestor is Andrew Knowles 1675-1732

Elizabeth Knowles 1668-???? KZ4G-RRF

I am wondering if this the same Thomas Knowles 1643-1686 who married Agnes (Mercer) Knowles 1661-1686; their child Edmund was born in 1685.

Thomas was 18 years older than her.

Did he marry Grace Welch 1644_???? as a first wife?
