The 1675 will of William Sprague of Hingham mentions his daughter Mary and her husband Thomas King. Thomas and Mary moved to the part of Taunton, Massachusetts, later set out as Freetown. They probably moved about 1674, since the last child's birth recorded in Weymouth was in 1673. Publications say he moved to Taunton in 1682, was Town Clerk there in 1700 and is buried in Dighton Cemetery.
