This is a tremendous resource. The information about Thomas Andrews on page 701 residing in the homestead of his father and grandfather and passing it down through several generations of Thomases is incorrect. Captain Thomas did buy the Garrison Home on North Street near the Town Bridge from his parents; they probably also lived there until their deaths. About 1688 he built a home on LIncoln Street for his son Lieutenant Thomas that is now known as the Old Ordinary. Captain Thomas' daughter Ruth (married Ambrose Low) inherited the Garrison House. Lieutenant Thomas lived in the Old Ordinary until about 1705, then moved to a home on North Street opposite Thaxter's Bridge. This is the home that passed down through multiple Thomas Andrews. It is still preserved as part of the rectory for St Paul's Church.
