Thomas Sleeper and Joanna Knight

Thomas Sleeper1 8th and 9th Great Grandfather
Born about 1616, Bristol, England49
Died July 30, 1696, Hampton, Rockingham, New Hampshire
Parents Possibly Thomas Sleeper, Elizabeth Sherburne
Notes Thomas Sleeper came from Bristol, England in 1640 with his brother Moses. Moses went to settle in Philadelphia, which later became the State of Pennsylvania. Thomas tarried a while in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts before settling in Hampton, New England which later became New Hampshire in 1788. Thomas was listed as being a weaver by trade when he came to New England however, since he acquired land near Hampton, it is presumed he became a farmer.

In Hampton there were problems with the Indians. Parties of Indians committed raids in several places not very far away. The inhabitants of Hampton suffered less than those in the river towns, though they lived in constant fear. There appears to have been a plot to burn the house of Thomas Sleeper. About 9PM in early November 1675 an Indian was discovered passing from the barn about 8 rods distant towards the house with fire in his right hand and straw under his left arm. When he was about midway between the 2 buildings, he was fired upon from the house and immediately fell. The straw took fire and blazed up, and by the light of it, another Indian was seen running away. The fire soon went out, having done no injury. The people within the house, fearing that others might be lying in ambush, dared not go out into the night to the place where the Indian fell. In the morning no dead Indian was to be found.
