Children with Sarah/2p Brooks:

Thomas/1 Grant, a soldier in the Scottish army opposing the Parliamentary forces in the English civil war, was taken prisoner at the battle of Worcester, 3 Sep 1651.1,2 The following May, condemned to be sold into servitude, he was shipped from London aboard the John and Sarah for sale at Boston.3,1 He married, by 1668 in Plymouth Colony, as her 1st husband, Sarah/2p Brooks, daughter of Gilbert/1p Brooks and Elizabeth Symons.4 On a list of men who made advances of money to sustain the Plymouth Colony government during Philip's War, his sum being 9s.5 List of proprietors and inhabitants of Rehoboth, 7 Feb 1689.6 He was buried there 12 Jun 1690.7
     Says Savage, "Under this name came to our country many, twelve men in one ship, the John and Sarah, from London in May 1652; three call. James; three, John; and one, Alexander, Alister, Daniel, Patrick, Thomas, and William, respectiv. They were among the 272 wretch. passeng. put on board Nov. preced. 'free by ordin. of Parl. 20 Oct.' to be sold here, prisoners, gleaned on the fatal field of Worcester, 3 Sept. of that yr. A simil. cargo, from the doleful harvest of Dunbar, of near. the same numb. prob. in the former yr. sent to us by the governm. at home, had, as in his let. of 28 July 1651, from Boston, to the Lord Gen. Cromwell, our John Cotton assures him, 'not been sold for slaves to perpet. servitude, but for 6, or 7, or 8 yrs. as we do our own.'
     "None of that cargo [Savage comments elsewhere] would be kindly rec. here as they had been smitten by the wrath of Heaven in the odious cause of Charles II."3
     Cotton's letter to Cromwell, cited by Savage, says in part: "The Scots, whom God delivered into your hands at Dunbar, … have not been sold for slaves to perpetual servitude, but for six or seven or eight years, as we do our own; and he that bought the most of them, I hear, buildeth houses for them, — for every four a house; — layeth some acres of ground thereto, which he giveth them as their own, requiring three days in the week to work for him, by turns, and four days for themselves; and promiseth, as soon as they can repay him the money he hath laid out for them, he will set them at liberty."8
