    • Notes: 
    • Some secondary sources list the marriage date and location for Thomas Pierce and Elizabeth Cole as 06 MAY 1635 in Charlestown (now Boston), Massachusetts. I have not been able to find any evidence to support this. In fact, I have not found any evidence that Thomas Pierce was in New England by 1635. He is not included in Robert Charles Anderson's The Great Migration series which casts doubt on the marriage date and location.
