Birth*Thomas Curtis was born on 14 January 1669/70 at Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire, England; father's name does not appear in the original record, but Thomas is likely because Robert Curtis had a son the same month.1,2 
NoteB* There are no records for Thomas of Bugbrooke or Northampton after 1670. The most likely scenario is that he died in England and when Thomas' last son was born in New Jersey in 1685, he re-used the name Thomas. This contradicts the assertion of Lewis Cook (1974) that Thomas came to American with his parents.2 
Death*He died before 1680 at Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire, England.1
