"Thomas lived in Braintree until 1657, when he removed to Medfield later called Sherborn. In 1674 a deed shows him in 'Bogestown near the town of Medfield' on land given him by his father Samuel. Here it appears he had 3 children born; a daughter Sarah, and Abigail, dates of the first two not given. About 1670 he returned to Braintree and became Deacon of the church. Braintree and Boston records fail to reveal anything of his girls except for Sarah. Thomas lived in Braintree Mass. and was in King Philip's War. []

Philip (Native American chief) (died 1676), sachem, or chief, of the Wampanoag tribe of Native North Americans and the second son of the Wampanoag chief Massasoit, who for nearly 40 years had been the first and staunchest ally of the Pilgrim settlers of Plymouth, in what is now Massachusetts (see PILGRIMS). Originally named Metacomet, he was called Philip by the English settlers. In 1662 Philip succeeded his brother and formally renewed the treaties of his father, which he honored for some years. The colonists, however, made continual encroachments on native lands. In retaliation Philip formed a confederation of tribes and in 1675 led an uprising now known as King Philip's War. They burned towns and killed many of the inhabitants. In return the colonists captured Native American women and children, destroyed crops, and promised impunity to Native American deserters. In December 1675 the colonists won a major victory. During the spring of 1676 the Native Americans held out, but their numbers steadily diminished, and in August, Philip was killed. The war then ended, and resistance to further colonial settlements in southern New England ceased. "Philip (Native American chief)," Microsoft (R) Encarta. Copyright (c) 1994 Microsoft Corporation.
