Thank you for posting this - this matches the information that I have regarding the family of Henry Dow - b. 1550, father of Henry, b. ca. 1605, who was the first Dow in America.Nothing you have given relates to the Thomas Dow of Newbury MA. The 2 Thomases you listwho were brothers of Henrynever came to America. The 1st was bap. 1 Apr 1599 - died 6 Apr 1599. The 2nd Thomas bap. 16 Jan 1601/2 was b., m. inherited land, had a family, lived and d. in England where his descendants still live. Also, in 1654, the Thomas who lived in Newbury MA, was about only about 35 years old. Thus the Newbury MA Thomas cannot be the brother of Henry, as some people have claimed - since not only are Henry's brothers accounted for in numerous records in England, but the age is wrong, social status is wrong, level of education is wrong - and there is absolutely no indication that they even met or knew of each other's existence. Glad your information confirms what I have concluded.Thanks.
