Thomas and Mary (____) Flagg 
 
Thomas Flagg is believed to have been born in Hardingham, Norfolk on May 6, 1621, and came to New England when he was 16, embarking at Norfolk in 1637. He settled at Watertown, Mass as early as 1641 and became a proprietor and prominent citizen there. 

Thomas and Mary, his wife, Mary (last name unknown, but could be Underwood) had twelve children. Two of the boys were killed in Indian wars. Three of Thomas Flagg's children married three Bigelow siblings causing quite a few common descendants from these two immigrants. My line is through his son Michael Flagg, who married Mary Bigelow.
