Biography

Thomas Nickerson was born about 1670, in Chatham, Massachusetts, [1][2][3][4]to William Nickerson and Mercy Williams. He married Mary Bangs (1671-1745) about 1690[5], daughter of Jonathan and Mary Bangs. He died on August 3, 1736, in his hometown, at the age of 66.[6][7]

"Lieut. Thomas Nickerson, eldest son of William and Mercy (Williams) Nickerson, born at Monomoit about 1670, married Mary, daughter of Jonathan Bangs of Harwich. She was born April 14, 1671. He settled at Cotchpinacut Neck (Old Harbor) on land lying just west of his father's farm there. He was selectman two years, town clerk twice for short periods, and held other offices. His wife joined the Harwich Church, Nov. 14, 1708, and he and all his children were baptized Oct. 9, 1709. His wife was dismissed to the church in Chatham July 7, 1723. He was lieutenant of the military company as early as 1708. By deed dated July 11, 1706, he acquired the interest his mother had by foreclosure on the land adjoining him on the west and in the possession of Dogamus, Stephen and Mortiquit, Indians. They disputed his title and successfully defended themselves in the courts. 'There were about 100 acres in this tract, which bordered on Ryder's cove and Pleasant bay.' His will, dated August 4, 1735, was proved August 3, 1736. He devised his dwelling house and land connected with it and one-half of Ram Island to his nephew, Samuel Hinckley, who lived with him. His son Nathaniel received the other half of the island. His other sons had already received their portions"[8]


Military

Monomoit was directed, from the Colony, to choose a "fit man" as leader and form such a company in 1682, but its officers were not recorded before 1696. In 1706, Thomas was chosen as lieutenant, and his brother, William, ensign.
