In Reply to: Re: Confirmation sought re:Thomas Carrier by James G. Brown of 1112

From the book of tryals: Imprimatur: J. Backenhead 1660,
published immediately after the trials, one of the signers of the
sentence of Charles Stuart, King of England on January 29, 1648, was a
Thomas Wogan, Esquire. Dr. Stiles of Yale in his History of the Three
Judges of Charles I of England (found in the Library of American
History, a
reprint of standard works edited by Samuel L. Knapp) printed a list
of names he copied from the Journal of Major General William Goffe who
had been in hiding in Hadley, Mass. One Sunday, while the people of
Hadley were at worship, Goffe discovered Indians were gathering to
commit massacre of the town's people, so he came out of hiding to
warn them and was thereafter known as the Good Angel of Hadley.
Goffe's original diary was not disclosed until death had put everyone
in it out of danger. In the diary were the names of nineteen men
"condemned and in the Tower, but" said Goffe: "Morgan was not in
the Tower." It seems probable that Goffe knew the men personally,
so perhaps Thomas (Morgan) Carrier was one who escaped before the
order for arrest was issued and owed his freedom to an indistinct
signature. (Wogan-Morgan)
