  • Notes 
    • He came to Ipswich in 1638. He is probably the Thomas Emerson, baker, who in 1650 sold land granted him by the town of Ipswich to Joseph Jewett of Rowley. Stone-Gregg Genealogy drily notes that "authors at the turn of the century were reluctant to believe that Ralph Waldo Emerson was descended from a lowly baker but did not supply documentation proving the existence of two concurrent Thomas Emersons in Ipswich."
