I see an ancestry tree listing him as a son of Way-204

https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/person/tree/106236099/person/150078149199/facts

Thomas Henry "The Puritan" Way

BIRTH 20 MAR 1583  Allington,Bridport,Dorset,England

DEATH 24 MAR 1667  Dorchester, Massachusetts, USA

Ah! beware of trees that list people of the 1500s and 1600s with middle names ie. Thomas Henry Way and his father Henry George Way and grandfather Henry Alexander Way.
