    Notes 
    • Thomas JONES was one of the pioneer settlers of Guilford, CT, and came in 1639 with the Whitfield party. His name is sixth on the "Plantation Covenant" signed 1 June 1639, during the ocean voyage from England. Thomas was evidently a young man, and was probably a relation of William JONES of New Haven, CT. He appears to have been the first Marshal at Guilford, and to have held that office without a dissenting vote.
      Thomas evidently emmigrated to Guilford for a more free exercise of his religious and perhaps political opinions, and returned to England when his friends came in power. He was allegent to Mr. Whitfield, the religious leader of Guilford. Mr. Whitfield returned to England in 1649/50 and then Thomas "professed his willingness and hoped to be able to continue his present payments" for the ministers.
      His home lot in Guilford lay next to John BISHOP, on the east side of the Green, and he held in addition six acres of upland and swamp near by, four and a half acres of upland in the East Creek Quarter, and five and a half acres of marsh land there. In the Neck he held nine and three-quarters acres of upland, and also owned eight acres of marsh at "Salt-holes."
      Perhaps he was not married when he came to Guilford, though this is not certain. He married a Mrs. Mary CARTER, probably a widow, with a daughter Mary CARTER. Thomas JONES went back to England before June 1652. He left his property and family in Guilford, so evidently intended to return. He died however in England or Scotland shortly before Mar 1655. On 12 June 1656, Mary CARTER demanded 40 pounds sterling from Thomas JONES's estate, which the court ordered to be paid her. This sum consumed all the inventory but 1.3.8., which was ordered to be kept for the children.
