     Thomas Prence was born between 1599 and 1600 in Lechdale, Gloucestershire, England.

     He immigrated on the Fortune, departing from London, England, arriving 9 November 1621 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony.5,8,4 He became a freeman in 1633 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony, now Plymouth County, Massachusetts.2 He was Governor of the Plymouth Colony in 1634, 1638, 1657-72 in 1634.2 He moved to Eastham, Plymouth Colony, now Barnstable County, Massachusetts, in May 1655 He was one of the first settlers of Eastham.1

BRADFORD OF PLYMOUTH by Bradford Smith 1951, p.230: "Bradford, Allerton and Standish, to whom the trade monopoly (of Plymouth) had been granted, took in five others--John Alden and John Howland..., William Brewster and Edward Winslow, and Thomas Prence--another young man who at twenty-one had come over on the FORTUNE. Three years later (in 1624) he married Patience Brewster shortly after she reached Plymouth on the ANNE."
p.267: In 1637 both of Alice (Carpenter-Southworth-Bradford's) sons were married--Constant to Elizabeth Collier..Thomas to Eliz. Reynor... As Collier's other daughters married Love Brewster and Thomas Prance (whose first wife, Patience Brewster, had died in 1634), most of the leading families were now interconnected.
p.285-6: By 1644 Plymouth colony had 3,000 inhabitants, the Bay 15,000. Bent on removing no matter what the rest of the community did...Plymouth was too barren to support a growing population...Better to make a new settlement..."The decision for a mass removal was therefore reversed. But Thomas Prence, together with half a dozen other prominent families, went ahead anyway, renaming the (new) lace Eastham...
"Along with the breaking up of Plymouth as a community, it seemed to Bradford, came a slump in morality and religion... Disciplined himself, Bradford apparently had the intolerance of the strong for the weak. As in morals, so in religion. When...in 1645 a resolution "to allow and maintain full and free tolerance of religion to all men that would preserve the civil peace, and submit unto government," Bradford was against it, but the vote was close. If Prence had not maneuvered for a delay, it would have passed..."
p.288: "In 1642 a sense of (Indian) danger had arisen again...A council of war was set up. In 1644 the town was divided into military companies to meet an emergency and Bradford took charge of a company which included Prence (who soon after removed to Eastham), Hanbury, Lee, Howland, Cooke, Pratt, Armstrong and Winslow."
p.290: "Ill feelings had heightened by the naval war which had broken out between England and Holland in Europe, and with the end of that war in 1653 the trouble in America died down, but not before Plymouth and Connecticut had declared that the colonies ought to go to war. This was at the meeting in September 1653, where Bradford had been replaced by Prence..."
p.309: "A lack of a minister greatly troubled Bradford. In 1655 when the court again tried to elect him governor, he balked. The people showed no will to maintain a minister, he said... When men begin to rely on legislation instead of persuasion they have begun to admit the weakening of the cause... In the end, of course, he agreed to go on... The following March (1655-56) he signed articles of agreement with Prence, Willet, William Paddy and Josiah Winslow which continued their partnership in the Kennebec trade for seven years..."
p.315: Bradford's will: "Three young men were with him when he dictated his wishes--Thomas Cushman, Thomas Southworth, Nathaniel Morton. He still thought of them as young, though Cushman was fifty, the other two forty-one. Supervisors of his will were to be Thomas Prence, elected governor to succeed him at the June court a month afterward, Thomas Southworth and Thomas Willett..."
p.316: "Thomas Prence, who followed Bradford as governor, immediately asked for and got a man to attend him at the colony's expense. There was none of this in Bradford's time. Nor had there been such persecutions for conscience as now began. In June 1657, the very month after his death, a law against Quakers passed the court. In this, Plymouth was following the lead of Boston where in 1656 two Quaker women were seized the moment they stepped off the ship and, though no law against Quakers had been enacted, were thrown into jail where no one was allowed to speak to them and where they were nearly starved. By official order the two women were stripped naked so that the reverend magistrates could examine them for witch marks. The first law against Quakers was enacted in October and Boston was soon stripping Quaker women to the waist, trying them to the tail of a cart and whipping them through the streets until the blood ran down their backs and breasts...." /

Patience Brewster was born c.1600 in or near Scrooby, England. Her parents were William and Mary Wentworth Brewster.
Patience accompanied her parents on their flight from England to Holland in c1608, along with her brother Jonathan and sister Fear--who had been born on the eve of their flight.
She lived with her family in Holland most of her growing years, and her parents, along with two younger brothers who had been born while in Holland, sailed via SPEEDWELL and MAYFLOWER to Plymouth in 1620. Patience, Fear and brother Jonathan (whose wife and child had recently died) remained in Holland. Brother Jonathan proceeded to Plymouth via FORTUNE in 1621. Patience and Fear followed via ANNA in 1623.
Patience's father was, and had been Ruling Elder of their small congregation.
