Research Notes

  1. alternative candate for the parents of Thomas Bloosom; although he cannot be identified as an immigrant who came to New England. Mrs. Margaret Bone of Cambridge England documents Thomas Blossham born 26 Feb. 1566/7 was the son of John Blossham and his wife Johane of Wisbech, co. Cambridge. Thomas is mentioned as less than 12 years, and at that age would inherit the house, half the barn and 18 acres of land. He would have been 38 years old at his marriage to Anne Helsdon, making it less likely that this is our migrant, since men married much younger during this time period.
