Some web sources list more than 20 children for this couple, which seems unlikely!

According to Savage,671 Thomas Thayer of “Braintree, shoemaker, perhaps elder br. of Richard the first, brot. from Eng. perhaps as late as 1645, w. Margery, and three prolific s. Thomas, Ferdinando, and Shadrach, or Sydrach, as in his will of 21 June 1644, he calls him; was freem. 1647, when it is writ. Tayer; d. 2 June 1665, well advanc. in yrs; and his will was pro. 13 Sept. foll. His wid. d. 11 Feb 1673.”
He married Margery WHEELER234, 9G Grandmother on 13 Apr 1618 Thornbury, Gloucestershire, England.
They had one child:
Shadrach, 8G Grandfather (1629-1678)
4093. Margery WHEELER234, 9G Grandmother, daughter of 8186. Abell WHEELER & 8187. Jane SHEPHERD. Born on 25 Apr 1600 in Thornbury, Gloucestershire, England. Died in Braintree, Massachusetts, 11 Feb 1672/3. Immigrated ? .

See for details. There has been confusion in the literature about the identity of this Thomas Barrett.

Anderson et al.672 conclude that the Thomas Barrett who sailed on the Increase in 1635 was not the settler of Braintree and Chelmsford, as suggested by Savage. More work on these various lines is needed.
