The basic summary of the records on Thomasine, who came to Boston as a widow, and her children is Robert Charles Anderson, George F. Sanborn Jr., and Melinde Lutz Sanborn, The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634–1635, 7 vols. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1999–2011), 6:218-20, with the addition of the identification of widow Windsor as a sister of one of Thomasine’s sons from M. Halsey Thomas, ed., Diary of Samuel Sewall, 1674–1729, Newly Edited from the Manuscripts in the Massachusetts Historical Society, 2 vols. (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1973), 1:386. The latter is explicated, apparently for the first time in an authored work, in Robert Winsor/Windsor, Early Families of New England, online <http://www.americanancestors.org/databases/early-families-of-new-england/image/?volumeId=32108> (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 11 Sept. 2015). The project also has essays on Thomasine’s two surviving sons, Thomas Scottow and Joshua Scottow. These are undated, but their release was announced at the same time as the Windsor sketch: Alicia Crane Williams, Update on the Early New England Families Project, Vita Brevis, 1 October 2015, online <http://vita-brevis.org/2015/10/update-early-new-england-families-project/ (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society).
