[Kimberly1] TK was a tailor by trade and served his time in London. With his wife Alice, he came with the non-conformists to Dorchester in 1636. In 1638, he removed to New Haven where he was admitted a freeman in November 1639. He was a member of the Train Band in 1640; marshall of the NH Colony 1643-1661; and was one of 70 proprietors.

In 1667 he was admitted "sojourner" in Stratford and died there in 1673, will dated 11 January 1671-2, valued at 160:16. [NHTR 2:35] TK married Mary (Seabrook) Preston about 1660.
[Stratford2 217] TK Sr had liberty granted by vote of the town 22 November 1667, ``to come and dwell in said town after the manner of a sojourner.'' He was probably the Thomas who was residing in New Haven in 1643. He purchased land of Joseph Hawley on 18th, 19th, 1668 and 1670-1 he bought part of a house lot of James Blakeman, but died about a year later.

In the list of 1643 he was credited with 7 persons, presumably himself, his wife and the 5 elder children, and a small estate commensurate with his future standing, which must have been based on personal worth and ability rather than on birth or inherited wealth. He was 20th to take the oath of allegiance 1 July 1644 to the new jurisdiction or Colony of New Haven. William Preston succeeded him as keeper of the pound 8 December 1645.

TK bought about half an acre from Benjamin Blackman 18 March 1670/1 in stratford and may have lived there at the time of his death, though the purchase price was only 5 pounds and there is no mention of a house on the land.
