Martha Coldham

1James G. Dempsey, Thomas Coldam of Lynn, NEHGR Vol. 125, pp. 24-25 (Jan 1971).
"THOMAS1 COLDAM of Lynn, Mass., was born in England about 1602 as indicated by the November, 1662, Salem quarterly court records: "Thomas Coldam, aged about sixty years, deposed ... sworn in court" (Records and Files of the Quarterly Court, Essex County, Mass., vol. 3, p. 11). Thomas was a miller and farmer as shown in this deposition: "he tended Mr. Humfrey's mill two or three years off and on, as he could conveniently ... he knew it to be worth one hundred pounds sterling, for he himself was a miller, both here and in old England, and knew what belonged to a mill."(ibid.).
Thomas arrived with his wife, Johanna, and several children,early in the 1630's because he was admitted a freeman in 1634 and was granted 60 acres in the 1638 Lynn land accounting (ibid., 2:271).
