Holman, Mary Lovering. Ancestry of Charles Stinson Pillsbury and John Sargent Pillsbury. (Concord, New Hampshire: Privately Printed at The Rumford Press, 1938), II:991-992. Thomas Emerson, born probably in Searby, co. Lincoln, about 1589, was buried in Cadney, co. Lincoln, 25 Dec. 1657. He married in Cadney, 10 Aug. 1612, Margaret Froe who died before 1657. Thomas Emerson was apparently the youngest child of his parents and to him his father, Alexander Emerson, bequeathed property in Howsom and Cadney. Evidently Thomas went there to live and spent his life farming his land.
