Note on Husband: Thomas BLOOMFIELD - shared note

Some of the following is in error yet relied on for many years. Specifically, the immigrant Thomas' father was John - also an immigrant, leaving Thomas and a lame daughter in Massachusetts in 1639 per Essex Co. Probate records (v1 p12) and records of the Colony of Mass. Bay (v1 p286) based upon testimony of Thomas. As follows:

 

Estate of John Blumfield of Newbury.

The Court of Assistants, held at Boston, a quarter court, 3:1:1629-40 (sic), appointed Thom. Blumfeild administrator to his father, John Blumfeild, deceased, and to have the house and ground; the lame daughter to have the overplus of the goods not disposed of. Mass. Bay Colony Records, vol. 1, page 286.

 

Also, there is no evidence to substantiate that there was a Colonel Bloomfield in Cromwell's army.

2. Thomas2 BLOOMFIELD (Thomas1), b. England prob. c1615; d. Woodbridge, N.J., 1685/6; m. Mary _____, who survived him. He was at Newburyport, Mass. as early as 1638 and lived there until about 1665, when he removed to Woodbridge, where he patented many acres of land in 1669 and was a freeholder in 1670 (NYGBR, Jan 1937, 68:58, "Thomas Bloomfield of Woodbridge, N.J. and Some of His Descendants," by William Jones).

 

In a copy of the English Bible, brought from Amsterdam, in 1715, there is a family record of the Bloomfields, copied from an older record, by Dr. Moses Bloomfield, father of Gov. Joseph Bloomfield, of New Jersey. The History is given in the language of the original for several generations.

 

"Thomas Bloomfield - A major in Cromwell's army. Upon ye restoration of Charles ye II emigrated from Woodbridge, Suffolk, England, with his five children, Ezekiel, John, Thomas, Nathaniel and Mary. He first took up lands where ye town of Newbury now stands in Massachusetts and on ye 21st May 1666 with his associates purchased of ye proprietors of East Jersey ye township of Woodbridge - so named for their home in England -- It includes Perth Amboy and Piscataway -- And were among ye first settlers of ye town. (Woodbridge never included the other two towns named.) (Nelson, p. 33.)
