      ****And then we have these items which would possibly apply to a third Thomas Matthews. I'm going to post the entire transcript but it basically says that Thomas Matthews filed three lawsuits and answered in court by his attorney on 13 Feb 1677/78. Jane (Cockshutt) Matthews made the deed of gift to her Matthews children 15 Jan 1676/77. Keep in mind that both Thomas the elder and Thomas the younger were dead by the date of the above William Guither lawsuit 27 May 1676 and Thomas (husband of Jane) had his will proved 11 Mar 1676/77.

      I found an item in the Archives today that will require me to estimate the birth years of Thomas Matthews Jr. and Ignatius Matthews (his brother) as about 1642and 1644 respectively (at the latest, I think).

      I found this that bears directly on the ages of the elder Matthews family--the children of Thomas Mathews and Hester, as well as the children of Thomas Mathews and Jane Cockshutt. (ARMD Vol. 51, p. 24) dated 3 Oct 1678 states that John Breed, his wife Jane and her son Ignatius Matthews were delivered a subpoena. This concerned a suit by William Guyther to recover his property; finally in the possession of the "infant" Ignatius Matthews as the heir of Thomas Matthews the Younger. (William Boarman represented as his guardian the "infant" Ignatius Matthews in this lawsuit in 1677. I think the "infant" Ignatius Matthews had to be the nephew of the Ignatius Matthews who was the son of Jane (Cockshut)Mathews Breed.)
