Hi Kathy,
I have that Thomas Upsons father was a Richard Upson b: ca 1575 England d: ca 1635 Plymouth,Plymouth,Connecticut, USA
I do not know the exact sourse for this, I copied it out of a Connecticut History book at the Library years ago...Thomas was prob a brother of the first Steven Upson who came to USA SEE below:, I failed to copy the title of this book, opps....Shar
Volume 4
page 362
Upson, by vulgar spell. UPSUM, conform. to sound, STEPHEN, came to Boston,in the Increase from London, 1635, call. a sawyer, aged 23, was liv. 20 yrs.aft. and I presume that he had a fam. but am ign. of details. See 3 Mass.
Hist. Coll. VIII. 26. Many yrs. aft. that publicat. Mr. Drake, in Geneal.Reg. XIV. 312, marks this Stephen, a Lawyer, yet gives him the same number of yrs. with my read. Perhaps his eyes were delud. by the handwriting, for my own experience proves how easy it is to bewrong in such puzzles.. THOMAS, Hartford, of wh. we kn. not fom what part of Eng. or when he came, may have been at Cambridge, or other town in Mass. bef. going to H. He prob. was br. of the first Stephen, and sett. very early at Farmington
