Notes for Thomas Randall:
c. 1673: Thomas, son of Thomas and Hannah (Packard) Randall was born.
"A Biographical History of Robert Randall and his Descendants" by William L. Chaffin; p. 9; The Grafton Press; New York City, New York; 1909 (9292.2 R188-3 LAPL)

1673: Thomas Randall, eldest child of Thomas and Hannah (Packard) Randall, born at Weymouth.
1695: He settled in the Taunton North Purchase, in what is now Easton, and built a house in the present South Easton, near the present site of the Ames Shovel Works.
About 1720 he built a saw mill, and did a large business in lumbering, owned a large property in the town, his tax being double that of any other citizen. He was a Deacon of the church, was delegated by
the town to build the town stocks, was tythingman, constable and "preesink dark" before the town was organized.

1695: He settled in Taunton, North Purchase, now Easton, Massachusetts, going there with his father and brothers, and he built his house at, what is now known as, the Morse place in South Easton. But after a few years he took up over thirty acres of land in what became North Easton, land that included the present site of the office of the great Ames Shovel Company.

1720: He built a sawmill and did a good deal of business. During the early years of Easton he was the largest property owner in town, paying a tax double that of any other resident. These early Randalls were all prosperous and were prominent and influential people. They were quite religious, this Thomas being a deacon of the church, as other Randalls were. Indeed the Randall family were prolific in what some one called "deacon timber."
1727: It was voted in town meeting that Deacon Randall should make a pair of stocks for the use of the town; and more than one culprit exposed to shame in them had a chance to discover if the deacon did this piece of work well. He had served as tythingman, constable and "Preesink clark," before the incorporation of the town.
