III. Adgate. No other Adgate except Thomas is found among the original settlers of New England, and his name has not been traced until it appears at Say- brook. From whence he came, or when, and whether alone or with wife and children, are alike unknown. It is seldom that any name appears so isolated and untraceable. The following record, with a registry of lands, and his name, as present at a town meeting in 1655, are the chief memorials of him at Saybrook.

Children of Thomas Adgat.
Elizabeth born tho 10th of October, Anno 1651.
Hanna born tho 6th of October, Anno 1653.

At Norwich the same children are recorded with those of subsequent birth, as follows : Elizabeth, born in October, 1651 ; Hannah in October, 1653; Abigail in August, 1661; Sarah in January, 1663; Rebecca in June, 1666; Thomas in March, 1669-70. No day of the month is given. The death of the first wife, and his marriage with the second, are not registered. From incidental circumstances it is evident that the second wife was Mary, daughter of Matthew Marvin and widow of Richard Bushnell, and it is probable that the marriage took place about the time of the removal to Norwich. The five daughters married respectively, Richard Bushnell, Samuel Lothrop, Daniel Tracy, Christopher Huntington, and Joseph Huntington, all proprietors of Norwich, of the first or second generation. Thomas Adgate was a deacon of Mr. Fitch's church, but at what period chosen to that office is not known. He was older than his pastor, and perhaps his coeval in office. It is probable that he exercised the functions for at least half a century. His will, dated May 22, 1704, commences, "I Thomas Adgit, being in the 84th year of my age," &c. He died July 21, 1707. Mrs. Mary Adgate, his relict, died March 29, 1713.

Exploring the Ancestry of Thomas ADGATE: Events, Pictures, and Documents

Biography
Thomas Adgate first appeared in Saybook, Connecticut around 1650. According to some sources (for example, Caulkins, 'History of Norwich', p.155) he may have been the only immigrant to New England named Adgate. So it's possible that most, if not all, of the Adgates in America are his descendants.

Thomas Adgate
'Nothing is know of Thomas Adgate previous to his arrival in Saybrook. The name of his first wife, and the date of her death, are unknown. The births of two daughters are recorded at Saybrook, Elizabeth (b. 1651), and Hannah (b. 1653). Between 1658 and 1660, Thomas Adgate married Mary (Marvin) Bushnell, widow of Richard Bushnell, and daughter of Matthew Marvin or Norwalk. On their arrival at Norwich, the household consisted of Deacon Thomas and his wife, his two daughters, Elizabeth and Hannah, and the four Bushnell children, Joseph, Richard, Mary, and Mercy. Three other daughters were born in Norwich, and one son. The family must have been not only a very united one, but uncommonly attractive as well, for Richard Bushnell married his step-sister, Elizabeth Adgate, and one by one the neighbors' sons succumbed to the charms of the remaining daughters.'
