    From the WorldConnect Database: "Sanford-Shulsen Family", b y Evelyn Beran:

    "John Homer Bliss' "Genealogy of the Bliss Family" and Char les Hoppin's "The Bliss Book" both trace the ancestry of Th omas Bliss who settled at Rehoboth, and contain nothing per taining to the ancestry of Thomas Bliss of Hartford. Count y Gloucester is definitely "Bliss country" in terms of will s and baptismal/marriage records, but nothing has been foun d to prove the ancestry of Thomas Bliss of Hartford.

    Myrtle Stevens Hyde identified Margaret, wife of Thomas Bli ss, as the daughter of John Hulins of Rodborough, county Gl oucester, England, and found the baptism of their son Natha niel at Rodborough, but did not identify where the young co uple lived. A later article in TAG 60 said: "The marriage i s recorded in the registers of the parish of St. Nicholas , city of Gloucester: '1621. Thomas Blisse and Margret Huli ngs weere married October the 18th'. The "Nathaniel son o f Thomas Blisse" baptized on 28 December 1622 at Rodborough , eleven miles south of Gloucester, was surely the first ch ild of Thomas and Margaret. Frequently first children wer e baptized in their maternal grandparents' parish, even tho ugh the young parents resided elsewhere."

    Thomas immigrated to New England with his family about 1635 . On 24 February 1639/1640 Thomas was granted 36 acres at B raintree, Massachusetts Bay Colony, at a cost of 3 shilling s per acre on the basis of a family of nine. That same mont h he was recorded at Hartford CT, owning several pieces o f land, on one of which he built a home. He was not an orig inal proprietor of Hartford, but is listed on the Founder s Monument. He was a freeman.

    His home lot at Hartford, #58, adjoined that of his son Tho mas (#59). On 4 March 1646 Thomas was fined 2s-6p "for no t trayneing".

    The probate record shows that Inventory for Thomas Bliss o f Hartford was taken 14 February 1650; inventory amounted t o 86-12-08. His nuncupative will was admitted on the testi mony of John Pinchon, Hen: Smith and daughter Mary Parson s of Springfield. Thomas desired that his wife should hav e the entire estate for life. On 20 February 1650/1651 th e court granted "Adms. to the Relict, She to keep the whol e Estate in her Hands for her Use and the Education of th e children during her life, then to be divided among the Ch ildren, viz: to Lawrence, to John, to Samuel, to Hester, t o Elizabeth, to Hannah and to Sarah Bliss." Thomas, Ann, Ma ry and Nathaniel presumably had received their portions a t marriage. "
