      Thomas Wood:
      Thomas WOOD married 7: 4: mo, (June) 1654, Ann ___ .

      By deeds, dated 18 Feb., 1657, Joseph Jewett conveys to him four acres of land lying between the street (now Main Street) and Humphrey Bradstreet's farm (Essex Deeds, 2 Ips.: 135), and one undivided half of fourteen acres, "joining to Humphrey Bradstreet's land with the south part of it, and butting upon a parcel of land called the warehouse field . . . with the east part of it, and with the west part of it joining to the way that goes to Newbury and the way that leads to Rowley warehouse" (Essex Deeds, 2 Ips.: 134,). He exchanged these lands with John Pickard, guardian of Nehemiah Jewett, for that Messuage, mansion house, "wherein Mr Joseph Jewett dwelt at the time of his death" (Essex Deeds, 2 Ips.: 66). That was the original lot laid out to William Bellingham (14).
      Wood was accused before the Rowley Church, 28 Aug., 1667, of having the deed of this land so made as to include about sixty rods of meadow belonging to Rev. Samuel Phillips, the minister of Rowley, and of pulling down the fence, thereby wronging Mr. Phillips. The matter was settled by Mr. Phillips' having his meadow restored, and Brother Wood confessing his sin. (Ch. R.)
      In the Diary of Hon. Samuel Sewall (Vol. 1, p. 10) is the following:
      "1675 July 31, at midnight, Tho. Wood, carpenter, of Rowley, had his house and goods burnt, and voe malum, a daughter of about 10 years of age, who directed her brother so that he got out, was herself consumed to ashes."
      In an affidavit of 1675, he called John Todd, "brother"; he also gives his age as "about 40 years" (Essex Ct. Files, 23: 27-28-29). It is probable he was older than stated. He was buried 12 Sept., 1687. His will, dated 21 July, 1687, mentions himself as of Rowley and as "being at present weak in body"; wife, Anne; eldest son, John; sons Thomas. Josiah, Samuel, Solomon, Ebenezer and James; "my three daughters", Mary Chute, Anne Plummer and Ruth Jewitt; brother Obadiah Wood of Ipswich; son Thomas, and wife, Ann, executors (Suffolk Probate, 10: 168). His widow, Ann, died 29 Dec 1714.
