Thomas Emerson and Margaret Froe

HUSBAND:
[F7508]. Thomas EMERSON.
Born (about 1590-S7)(in 1591-S1,S2) at (Howsham, Lincolnshire, England-S2)(Howsham, Cadney, Lincolnshire, England-S7)(of Cadney, Lincolnshire, England-S3); son of Alexander EMERSON [F15016] and Jenett HORNSEY [F15017]. He married Margaret FROE [F7509] on 10 AUG 1612 at (Cadney, Lincolnshire, England-S1,S2,S3). He died in DEC 1657 at Howsham, Cadney, Lincolnshire, England.(S3,S7). He was buried 25 DEC 1657 at Howsham, Cadney, Lincolnshire, England.(S5,S11).

Some records have him confused with another Thomas EMERSON, who appears to be the son of Ralph EMERSON. This other Thomas was christened 26 JUL 1584 at Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, England. He was a collector at Bishop's Stortford, England. He came in the Elizabeth Ann and settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts. He probably married Elizabeth WOODMANSEY, but 5 other wives are listed.(S1). He married Elizabeth Brewster in 1611.(S12). He had a son Robert Emerson who was born 24 May 1612 at Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, England, which has also led to confusion. He died in 1653. (S12, S15)

Some have also said that the Emersons were of Great Dunmow, Essex, England. This also seems to be confusion with another Thomas Emerson; perhaps Thomas Emerson of Ipswich, Massachusetts. (S16).

WIFE:
[F7509]. Margaret FROE.
