The Great Migration Begins by Robert C. Anderson, Vol I-III, NEHGS online at:
Despite claims that he arrived as early as 1630, Thomas Spencer of Piscataqua does not appear in the papers preserved by Ambrose Gibbons at such an early date. Since he married a sister of Humphrey Chadbourne, and may have done so before 1634, it is more likely that he accompanied Chadbourne on the Pied Cow in 1634
