    • !SOURCE: Helen Schatvet Ullmann and L. Randall Harris, "The Origins of Thomas Harris and William Harris of Providence, Rhode Island," The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 167 (April 2013): 100-101:
      Many have erroneously said that this Thomas Harris arrived in New England with his brother William and Roger Williams aboard the ship Lyon, arriving in Nantasket 5 February 1630/1. However, the first record of this Thomas Harris in New England is when he was in a group of "second comers" to the new settlement, who "was received a purchaser of Providence previous to" 20 August 1637. These were thirteen men "desirous to inhabit in the town of Providence" who subscribed to a "ciuill" compact.
