Misc. Notes
The history of Thomas Cakebread and his relatives has been exceptionally confused in the literature. According to Anderson, “Savage had these marriages completely wrong, as did many other writers,”360 and there is no evidence to support Banks’ claim that Thomas Cakebread and his wife Sarah _____ came from Broadoak, Essex, and were part of the Winthrop Fleet of 1630.939

Anderson provides a comprehensive account of Thomas Cakebread, based on the earlier work of Ferris.940 I follow Anderson here, with details to be entered.

He was a founding member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company in 1637: “Ensign Thomas Cakebread, the eighteenth of the roll, and a charter member, was made freeman, May 14th, 1634. He first resided at Boston, but afterwards removed to Sudbury, where he was elected Ensign of the first voluntary train band. His name is mentioned as the Ensign of that band, at the organization of the militia, 1644. Farmer says he died there, January 4th, 1643; probably he means 1643-4.”941
