Elizabeth Jones1

Father*______ Jones2
MarriageFebruary 1635She married at Salisbury, Somerset County, England, as his second wife, Antony Thacher, son of Reverend Peter Thacher of Queen Camel, in February 1635 about six weeks before the date of their sailing to New England.2
Emigration*20 March 1635Elizabeth's brother, Richard Jones, had been living in Dinder, Somerset County, England, when he sailed to New England from Weymouth, County Dorset on 20 March 1635.2
Emigration*5 April 1635Elizabeth and her new husband of just a few weeks, Antony Thacher, with the four oldest of Antony's five children, and his nephew, Thomas Thacher, sailed from Southampton, Hampshire, England, to New England on 5 April 1635 on the ship James of London.2
(Wife) Relocation15 August 1635 Neither the exact place, nor date, of landing in New England of the ship James has been agreed upon by historians. Whether Boston, Newbury or Ipswich, wherever the passengers first landed, Antony Thacher and Joseph Avery and their families sojourned for a short time in Ipswich, Massachusetts. While there, Reverend Avery received a call to preach in Marblehead, then a part of Salem. During the time he took for deliberation, the two families removed to Newbury with plans to settle there. But after Avery accepted the call to Marblehead, he and his family of eleven all told, accompanied by Antony Thacher and his wife Elizabeth (Jones) Thacher, and his children by his first wife, William, Edith, Mary and Peter, went back to Ipswich. From there they embarked for Marblehead. Antony Thacher's nephew, Thomas Thacher, who had sailed with his uncle's family to New England, felt a sentiment of evil about the trip and did not accompany them on the voyage. Instead Thomas decided to make the journey overland despite the danger of being attacked by hostile Indians. The Thacher-Avery party embarked from Ipswich for Marblehead in a pinnace and the vessel was wrecked on 15 August 1635. All on board were lost except Antony Thacher and his second wife Elizabeth (Jones) Thacher.2
Residence*After some moving around, Elizabeth and Antony Thacher settled in Yarmouth, Plymouth Colony.2
(Wife) Deathbetween 30 June 1667 and 22 August 1667Elizabeth became a widow when Antony Thacher died between 30 June 1667 and 22 August 1667.2
