    Notes 
    • Mr. Ruggles was a son of a godly father. Thomas, his wife and two children came from England to Roxbury in 1637. They were united with the church soon after coming "being as well known as his brother." Both Thomas and his wife were zealous Christians. Mary joined the church with her husband, adn approved herself a godly Christian by a holy and blameless conversation, being converted not long before their coming from England.

      Thomas Ruggles had a great sickness the year after his coming, but the Lord recovered him in mercy. He died about six years later in 1644, "a godly brother." By his will he gives his estates to his wife and children, John, Samuel and Sarah. Eliot places the name Thomas Ruggles on the record of the church next to that of John Graves, and adds, "he died of consumption. These two brake the knot of the Nazing Christians that came from that town [village] in England." [2]
