There is controversy about which Avery first settled in Portsmouth, NH and then Greenland, NH.
[NOTE: The book "Great Migration: Immigrants to New England", 1634-1635, Vol I, A-B has an article on the Thomas Avery of Salem who came to America in 1633 and states that he is NOT the Thomas Avery of Portsmouth, NH whose widow was named Joan. So the mix-up between the two Thomas Averys started very long ago.]
Thomas Avery married Joan in 1656 in Portsmouth, NH and he is noted as a landowner in Portsmouth in 1657 and his wife Joan verified his estate in 1681.
