  • Notes 
    • As Laura K. Pettingell documented in 1967 (citation details below), Thomas Fowler was not a son of emigrant Philip Fowler as shown in many sources, but rather his nephew.

      Depositions show that in his boyhood he lived in Marlborough, Wiltshire, making that very probably his actual place of birth. His birth year is derived from his testimony in 1662 that he was then about 26.
