A Genealogical and Biographical Record of the Pioneer Thomas Skidmore [Scudamore] of the Massachusetts and Connecticut Colonies in New England and of Huntington, Long Island, and of His Descendants Through the Branches Herein Set Forth. Emily C. Hawley. Hardbound, (1911), 2016, Illustrated, Index, 468 pp.
Thomas Skidmore, or Scudamore, the pioneer was a descendant of Thomas Scudamore of Holme Lacy, Herefordshire, England. He was born about 1600, and was married and living when thirty-five years of age at Westerly, Co. of Gloucester. About 1635 he sailed with Governor Winthrop and his company for the new world. He settled in Cambridge, Mass., in 1630-1, later removing to New London, and afterwards to Fairfield, Conn. Later he joined a colony that settled Huntington, Long Island. He had six children. The history of these and their descendants form the matter of the book. The bare facts and figures which necessarily form the greater part of such a book, are interspersed with delightful narratives of family history. This work also includes other related branches of the Skidmore family, with historical sketches of places where the several branches settled, and of events in which representative members participated.
