Since this section overlooked those from Hertfordshire and Norfolk where the Tidd family was from, information was gathered from the book, Topographical Dictionary of 2885 English Emigrants to New England 1620-1650. There were nine families from Hertfordshire and twelve families from Norfolk who settled in Charlestown.

From Hertfordshire
Thomas Grover of Aldenham Parish
Jeremy and Thomas Gould of Bovingdon Parish
John and Ralph Morley of Cheshunt Parish
Thomas Whittemore of Hitchin Parish (see above)
Robert Lang of St. Albans Parish (possibly Long)
Thomas Welch of Stortford Bishop's Parish
Seth Sweetzer of Tring Parish (see above)
Ezekiel, Samuel and Thomas Richardson of Westmill Parish
Francis and John Wyman of Westmill Parish

From Norfolk
John Crowe of Carleton Rode Parish
Henry Gibbs of Frenze Parish
Henry Smith of Hempenall Parish
Edmond Hobart of Hingham Parish
Thomas Chubbock of Hingham Parish
Ralph Smith of Hingham Parish
Samuel Ayers of Norwich Parish
John Baker of Norwich Parish
John Tead of Norwich Parish
Nicholas Davison of Norwich Parish
Peter Tufts of Wilby Parish
Gardey James of Winfarthing Parish

My closing thought on what turned out to be a very time consuming project is, I am not yet finished. The FHL has micorfilms of the town records, some of which I would like to reread. There are several more books that I would like to glean information from. I am very grateful to Roger Thompson and his diligence in writing books about this area of New England. My next book to read is his Cambridge Cameos. For now I will let this project rest and focus on some other topics, probably of shorter length. If you have read through all four posts and made it to the end I congratulate you. If you have ancestors from this area I think you will enjoy reading From Deference to Defiance, Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1629-1692.
