Thomas came to America with his family on the ship Castle from London about 1638. They were most likely wealthly, Thomas emigrated "in a venture" with his cousin Joseph Merriam of Concord, and they first lived in Dorcester MA. They eventually settled in Roxbury, Suffolk Co., about one mile from Dorcester.
Daughter Joanna married Henry Farnam after being widowed with a son, remarrying and divorcing about the time her daughter Elizabeth was born. Divorces were rare in Puritan New England and they disappear from records until 1665, when he and Joanna and her daughter Elizabeth are settled in Hammonassett Plantation, to become known as Killingworth. Joanna's son Thomas Swanne (1642?-1687) was about aged 7 or 8 when his father Thomas Swanne died. He was afterwards raised by Thomas and Elizabeth, his grandparents, before marrying and starting a family after 1661.
