76 He settled in the western part of what is now Reading about 1689, 16 years after he married, in 1673, the daughter of Capt. Jonathan Poole. He built the fourth house in that part of the town. Like his father, he was a military man and was an officer 1675-76 in King Philip's Indian War. On 12 July 1689 he was chosen lieutenant in a Lynn company and, on 30 Aug. 1689 he was appointed lieutenant of the soldiers of the lower Middlesex regiment who had been impressed to march against the Indians. In his work "Magnalia Christi Americana," Rev. Cotton Mather states that "on 5 July 1690 the Indians set upon Capt. Hilton's garrison in Exeter, and Lt. Bancroft, then posted at Exeter, with the loss of a few of his men, relived them. He made such a vicious charge upon the Indians that they fled without scalping the fallen." ("Thomas Bancroft of Dedham & Reading, MA," NEHGS "Register," Vol 94, pg. 215)

Thomas was active in civic & local affairs: in 1676 he and Jonathan Poole petitioned the Governor and Council proposing changes in the policy of town management; in 1686, he was assessed to pay Indians for lands occupied by the town; in 1694, a member of the first separate board of assessors; and in 1695, on a committee to improve the church. He was a deacon of the church and a Selectman. He srved as juror in 1666, 1669, 1672, 1674 and 1681 and on the Essex Co. grand jury 1674, 1675, 1679 and 1681. He was appointed constable for Lynn in 1681 and acted as appraiser of estate and deceased persons.

87 In her book on the Sanders Family of New England, Gwen Sanders Cravens argues (with some merit) that Richard Thayer may have been married twice -- that Ann [Gibbs?], his first wife, died in 1590 and that he married a woman whose surname may have been Dimery before 1592 who was then the mother of his children. Family F1426
