Note on Husband: Thomas AXTELL (1)

From http://www.dim.uchile.cl/~emoreno/genealogia/Html/I667.html

Son of William and Thomasine Axtell, was baptised in St. Peter's Church, Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England, January 26, 1619 (N.S.). His father died in 1638. He married Mary-- probably in 1638; two children were born to them in England, and their baptism is recorded in St. Peter's. They left England as early as 1643, for in October of that year, Thomas purchased five acres of land in Sudbury, Massachusetts, of EdmondRice, who himself had come from Berkhamstead five years earlier. This land is described as "lying in ye south part of ye town-bounds, the southwest side lying to the commons and joined to the land of Edmond Rice, southward and northward to the highway leading from Sudbury to Mr. Duston's farm." This is what is now Wayland near "The Five Paths." Thomas took the oath of fidelity July 8, 1645. He died in March, 1646, and was buried the 8th of that month. The following is the inventory of ThomasAxtell of Sudbury, lately deceased,

 

Imprimi:

His land and house 8/ 10s

Cattle 8/ 10s

Wearing apparel and bedding with his arms 10/

Brass and pewter 5/

 

Edmond Rice bought back the land, six acres, and dwelling house. This was near the spring. The story told in those words is short, indeed, but we are permitted to see what it stands for. The young Englishman was a soldier or at least trained to arms; he was of strong puritanical leanings, like his brother Daniel the regicide. With his wife and two little ones he followed his neighbor across the sea to make his home in a frontier settlement of New England. Scarcely had he set up his roof tree in the wilderness when hardships and exposure struck him down. With his last breath he leaves his little all for the helpless group about his death bed. Mary, the widow of Thomas, appears to have married John Maynard, a widower with a boy of eight, on June 16, 1646.

Some records have Thomas' birth in 1618 and his death in 1645 but the actual dates match. Transciption errors?
