Thomas Doggett, son of John Doggett and Alice Brotherton, was born say 1632.1 He died at Martha's Vinyard, Dukes Co., Massachusetts, in 1691.2,3

Thomas married Hannah Mayhew, daughter of Thomas Mayhew and Jane Galland, at Martha's Vinyard, Dukes Co., Massachusetts, say 1657.2,3,4,1,5

Thomas Doggett/Daggett was voted whale cutter for the year, 11 Nov 1652. In 1652 he was living in Edgartown, as at that time "Richard Arey hath given him, a house lott between Mr Burchard and Thomas Daggett's."[Hon. R. L. Pease].

On 3 Aug 1670 Thomas Doged was clerk to the court at the Vineyard. [Plymouth Recordsl]

He promised whatever Thomas Mayhew shall give to his daughter Hannah (his wife), she shall be at liberty to dispose of as she likes (20 Jun 1679) [Dukes Deeds, 1-1322]

The Dukes and Bristol county deeds contain many transfers of land made by both Thomas and Hannah Daggett.

He died between 18 Mar and 15 Sep 1691, probably at Edgartown, but there are no records there to give the exact date. There is no mention of the settlement of his estate, and he left no will for the deed registry states: "Lands which came to me the said Thomas, as heir to said Thomas Daggett, as well from the knowledge of the intent of my said father, had Providence allowed him making a will."2
