Jeremiah Vail to Salem 1639, are there any good sources for his origin in England?

I just changed the status of Jeremiah Vail's parents to uncertain.  But I am wondering if I should actually disconnect them.  

Is there any good evidence that Jeremiah Vail was born in Norfolk, or in Suffolk, or "in the west of England" (as his biography presently states)?  There is the same problem with his probable brother Thomas Vail.

Anderson (2015) in the Great Migration Directory says the origin of Jeremiah Vail is unknown.

The cited source on the page for Jeremiah, claiming his parents as Thomas and Elizabeth (that is: Genealogy of Some of the Vail Family Descended from Jeremiah Vail at Salem, Mass, 1639, by Henry H Vail. Published in New York : DeVinne Press, 1902. 371p. Pg. 29. ) doesn't actually claim those parents. It says instead:

"JEREMIAH VAIL, b. probably in the west of England about 1618;"

Thanks for the information.  I made some minor corrections to his biography.  

I also removed Norwich, Norfolk, as his birth place.  That was actually the origin of his second wife Mary Folger.
