What we know is gleaned almost solely from Vital Records. There were Thomas Stanifords in Ipswich and some in Charlestown, Massachusetts, and although several user genealogies give the Charlestown Stanfords as the lineage of our Thomas Stanford, I have not been able to find any authentication to that effect. No information is available on the Fluent family prior to Mary's marriage to Thomas. A Moses Fluent was married in Marblehead about the same time as Mary. It's possible they were siblings. He and his wife, Mary Briers, removed to Beverly where all their children were born and where they died. Thomas Stanford was a soldier in King Philip's War.
The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.
The research on this family is not complete. It may not be possible, but I hope one day the origins of both Thomas Stanford and Mary Fluent will be found.
