  3. 10.  Thomas Woodford was born in 1614 in England; died on 6 Mar 1667 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Emigrated 1632 on the William and Francis. First at Roxbury, the Hartford 1636, Northampton 1656. His name is on the Founders Monument in Hartford, Connecticut.

    From Hale, House and Related Families:

    On 7 March 1631/2, Thomas Woodford was listed among those to be transported to New England, and came on the William and Francis with Edmund Winslow of Plymouth and Joseph Weld of Roxbury. He settled in Roxbury, Mass, where Rev. John Eliot, pastor of the church, made these entries concerning him and his wife:

    Thomas Woodford, a man servant. he came to . N.E. in the yeare. 1632. & was joyned to the church about halfe a yeare after, he afterwards maryed mary Blott. & removed to Conecticott. & joyned to the church at Hartford.

    Mary Blott a maide servant. she came in the yeare 1632. & was after married to Steward Woodford of this church, who after removed to Conecticott to Hartford church, where she lived in christian sort.

    It appears that both came over as apprentices in their 'teens, though Woodford must have been nearly of age, as he was made a freeman of Massachusetts Bay, 4 March 1634/5. Their marriage occurred in Roxbury, according to Eliot, and was doubtless before 1639, for on 3 Jan. 1639/40 Thomas Woodford was to receive six acres in the division of lands at Hartford, and his eldest daughter married by 1654; hence the marriage may have taken place about 1635-6.

    On 3 March 1640/1 he became the sexton in Hartford by virtue of a town vote which begins: "it is ordered that Thomas woodford shall attend the making of Graues for anie Corpes Desesed and yt no corpes shall be laid les then fower ffoote Deepe non yt be aboue fower year owld shall be laid les than fiue foote Deep. non that be aboue ten shall be laied les than six foote Deepe."
