Thomas was baptized in Hingham, Norfolk, 27 Nov 1601. He was the son of Edward and Bridget (Gilman) Lincoln 
Thomas, styled the "weaver," was a brother of Daniel Lincoln the "husbandman," who died here unmarried, 5 Apr. 1644; and Samuel Lincoln, Sr., who was a younger brother. 
Thomas the "weaver" came to New England in 1633 with his "cousin" Nicholas Jacob, and resided for about two years at Watertown and Charlestown. Nicholas was probably his uncle by marriage, to his mother's sister, as he would be a contemporary born about the same time. (Thomas b. 1601 and Jacob b. 1604)
He had a grant of land in Hingham at Weary-all (Otis) Hill in 1635; and July 3, 1636, a house-lot of five acres on the south side of Town (South) Street.
Thomas was twice married.
== Last Will & Testament == Undated, but probated 26 Oct 1675, 
His will, which is without date, was witnessed by Edmund Pitts and Josiah Loring. It was presented at Boston, 26 Oct. 1675. In that instrument he bequeaths "all my moveables, and land, orchards, gardens, and meadows to Mary Lincoln, my beloved wife. After her decease, Daniel Lincoln, my nephew, and son of my brother Samuel, shall have the house-lot I now dwell upon which was given me by the town of Hingham; also, one half of my salt-meadow at Abraham's well, and one half of my planting lot at Weary-all Hill. To Samuel Lincoln, my nephew, the eldest son of my brother Samuel, the house-lot I formerly purchased of Jarvis Goold, deceased. Also to my brother Samuel a specified sum; and to my other nephews and nieces who are the children of my brother Samuel, viz.: Mary Lincoln, Mordecai Lincoln, Thomas Lincoln, Martha Lincoln, and Sarah Lincoln," sums varying from £5 to £12, each. As no mention is made of Samuel's youngest daughter Rebecca, it is more than prob. that the will was made before her birth.
On 19 July 1680, widow Mary Liincoln joined with her husband' other heirs to sell her part of the thirty acre lot "lately granted to Thomas Lyncolne late of said Hingham weaver now eceased and to Samuel Lyncoln Senr of the said Hingham and brother to the said Thomas Lyncoln".
