Thomas Pierce was born in England and migrated to America sometime before Feb 1634/35 when he joined the church in Charlestown.

He left money in his will to Harvard College. Was he perhaps a scholar?

Elizabeth???:

Notes:

Since Thomas and Elizabeth had a daughter named Persis it is thought that Persis was perhaps Elizabeth's maiden name.
