"Thomas, son of Nathaniel WELLS, was born in Colchester, England, in 1626. He came with his parents to America in 1629. He was a shipwright and carpenter. From 1648 to 1651 he was in New London, Connecticut, where he had a grant of land in 1649. He removed from there to Ipswich where he was engaged in shipbuilding until 1677, at about which date he removed to Rhode Island and lived in Wellstown. He is mentioned at Westerly in 1677 as engaged in building vessels in a shipyard, and is called "of Ipswich, shipwright". He bought a farm of one hundred and eighty acres in Westerly, Rhode Island, on the east side of Pawcatuck river, now Westerly. For this farm Wells agreed to build a small vessel for Amos Richardson, but he soon found that the land was claimed by Rhode Isalnd and as he was afraid of losing the land he refused to build the ship. Richardson sued in the lower court and it was carried to the court of assistants at Hartford, where it lasted until 1680. Two of Thomas Well's sons, Joseph H., aged twenty-two, and Thomas, aged seventeen, appeared as witnesses in this lawsuit. Rhode Island won the suit and Wells procured the land by paying Rhode Island. He died February 12, 1700, aged seventy-four, at his home in Wellstown, located in that portion of the township of Westerly which afterward became the township of Hopkinton, and was buried in the burial place Chimney Orchard, on the estate first purchased by his father.

"The WELLS or WELLES family of America is doubtless descended from the family "de Welles" of Lincolnshire, England. The de Welles family, who were BArons by summons to parliament, originated in the Vaux or Baux, Bayeux, or De Vallibus family of France, one of the most famous families in history. The family name is traced back to 794, being of high and even of royal rank. After the Conquest, Harold de Vaux, a near connection of William the Conqueror, with three sons, Barons Hubert, Ranulph, and Robert de Vallibus, settled in England, and the descent of the family is through Robert. The Vaux family settled originally in Normandy, where they were allied by marriage to most of the royalty of Europe. The earliest account of the founders of England of this family is that of Bertrand De Vaux, who 929 atteneded a tournament. Robert De Welles, son of Robert de Vallibus, had a son Thomas, born about 1175, and his son was Henry de Welles, born in Essex about 1200. His son Thomas, born about 1240, succeeded his father in 1293 to the Manor of "Little Raynes", and left as heir Walter de Welles, born about 1270. "Rayne Hall", after the Welles' long possession of it was names "Welles Hall".
