    Notes 
    • It is often said that Thomas was the son of Robert and Elizabeth (Stalham) Williams of Roxbury, and sometimes making Thomas a twin of Robert and Elizabeth’s son Stephen, born 8 Nov 1640. There is no Roxbury birth record of Thomas, son of Robert Williams. Furthermore, Robert’s will, dated 1685, proved 1693, names three sons, two grandchildren, and a brother, but no son named Thomas. Evidently, Thomas Williams is not related to Robert Williams.

      From the Holden Genealogy:
      Thomas Williams in 1686 was in possession of the Graves farm in Woburn, probably as a lessee, when Dr. Thomas Graves sold his farm of 360 acres to Nathaniel Richardson. (Middlesex Deeds, 10:524.) This farm was composed of five lots, four of which were purchased by the elder Thomas Graves of Waterfield Proprietors, and adjoined his own grant in West Rockfield, extending from the Charlestown (Stoneham) line on the east beyond the Aberjona River, and included grants to the wife of John Harvard, Abraham Palmer, James Matthews and John Stratton. On the southeast it was bounded by the 40-acre lot of Stephen Fosdick upon which John Holden lived for a time. [1]
