    Robert Charles Anderson

    Birth: Nothing is known of Thomas Symons date or place of birth.

    Death: Nothing is known of his date or place of death.

    Ship: Unknown, before 1633

    Life in England: Nothing is known of his life in England.

    Life in New England: Thomas Symons was a servant of Samuel Fuller. In Fuller’s 1633 will, he wanted Thomas Symons’ remaining term of service “to be employed for the good of my children.” In February 1641/2,Thomas Symons brought a complaint against Edward Doty for not keeping Symons’ two cows and a young steer properly. It is unclear if Symons was still in Plymouth at this time. He was in Scituate by 1643. The later records for Thomas Symons are complicated by the desire of various writers to make him a son or brother of Moses Simonson/Simmons.

    Family: There is no clear evidence that Thomas Symons married or had children.
