  • Notes 
    • "Thomas1 Flegg, as the surname Flagg was spelled in England and early in New England, was long considered to be an unrecorded son of Bartholomew and Alice Flagg of Whinbergh and Shipdham, co. Norfolk, England. That still remains possible, although the late J. Gardner Bartlett gave reasons for identifying him with a Thomas Flagg baptized at Hardingham, co. Norfolk, 6 May 1621, son of Allen and Nazareth (Devoroys) Flegg. Since the immigrant Thomas was entered as aged 21 in the shipping list in 1637, and since he was owner of a 'homestall' of six acres and a lot of twenty acres in Watertown, Mass., perhaps as early as 1641, and had a child born in April 1641, it would seem that the Thomas baptized 1621 was somewhat too young for the identification. That the family descended from Algar De Fleg in the reign of Henry II (1154-1189) seems likely, but the exact line of descent is uncertain, as there are several unproved links in the line given by Mr. Bartlett."
