Branch Two- Thomas of Windsor
Known Descendants

Thomas Rowley of Windsor, Connecticut has origins as mysterious as Henry Rowley, Planter of Plymouth. It has even been said that Thomas was a child of Henry, but no documentation has been located. Other descendants claim to have personal items brought by him from England, which might indicate that he was an immigrant.  Thomas was an early resident of Windsor. He bought land there in 1652. The estate of Henry Denslow, August 1676, mentions, "Mary, wife of Thomas Rowley" as one of the children. In some records he was called, "Thomas Rowell." He was a cordwainer (a worker of leather, or sometimes, a shoemaker.) Thomas died 24 October 1719.
