HISTORY OF BRUNSWICK, TOPsUAM, AND IURPSWELL.

 

GYLES, THOMAS.2

Thomas Gyles, the son of the subject of the preceding sketch, was,

without doubt, born in Topsham, as Lydia Felt, aged sixty-one, deposed

July 22,1718, that she lived in his father's family and was there

when Thomas was born. He was, so far as can now be determined,

the first white child born in Topsham. He escaped from the Indians

at the time of his father's death at Pemaquid, and went to Boston,

where he probably lived the remainder of his days. At any rate he

was a ferry-man there in 1727, and kept a retail store in 1730.

On August 15, 1727, Thomas Gyles, ferry-man. John Gyles, gent.,

Mary Brewer, widow, and Jonas Webber, lawyer (or sawyer), and

Margaret his wife, all of Boston (''Thomas and John are sons, and

Mary and Margaret the daughters of Thomas Gyles, late of Pemequid,

deceased "), in consideration of sixty acres where their father's house

stood in Topsham, and five hundred and fifteen acres on Cathance

Point, relinquished to the Pejepscot proprietors their father's right in

the neck of land on Muddy River Point, and all other lands of their

father in Topsham.

hearing of the death of his father, he, with his family, returned to England,
to transact the business Avhich that event naturally threw upon

Text From Source: After being put in possession of the large property which his father
left him, Thomas Gyles returned to New England. This was probably
not till the auturiin of 1G75 or spring of 1676; for, "on his arrival at
Boston, the eastern Indians had begun their hostilities."

Text From Source: Samuel, b. about 1680; living in 1699. That he died young and unm. is clearly evident from a quit-claim deed, given Aug. 15, 1727, by his brothers Thomas and John, and his sisters Mary Brewer, widow, and Margaret Webber, wife of Jonas Webber, sawyer, all of Boston, as heirs of Thomas Gyles, late of Pemaquid, to the Pcjepscot Company, of lands once belonging to the said Thomas Gyles, in the townshiji of Topsham. The said Pejepscot Company quit-claim to the said heirs sixty acres of land on the point where their father's house stood on Muddy River, and five hundred and fifteen acres on Cathance Point, over against it, as an equivalent for their father's land on the South side of said Muddy River. [York Deeds, 2S : 102.] This instrument, in which Samuel Gyles is not mentioned, is full proof that he was not then living, and that he had no heirs.
