  • Notes 
    • After arriving in New England family settled in Warwick and soon after the organization of the Government in 1648 he had a home lot assigned to him. A year after his marriage he purchased a stone house from his brother-in-law James Sweet in Old Warwick, which had been built at the earliest settlement of the town. This was the only stone dwelling-house south of Providence on the mainland, where he and his posterity resided until 1795, when, to the regret of many, the house was replaced by a wooden structure, now (1898) in good condition. During King Philip's War, on the 13th of March, 1675-6, the General Assembly of the colony, in session at Newport, sent a message to the people of Warwick, stating that the Colony was unable to defend them and advising them to seek safety at the island of Rhode Island, promising them hospitality from the inhabitants of Newport and Portsmouth. Many removed to the island, and on the night of March 16th and 17th every house in Warwick was burned, excepting Thomas Greene's "Stone Castle," where he and his wife and six children, with some of his friends and neighbors, remained in safety, and it thus became the garrison house during the war.
