Probable [that he is a Dunbar prisoner transported on the Unity]
Grant, Thomas. Residences: Dorchester, MA / Rehoboth, MA. D. 1681 / 1690. There are two men of this name, residing at Dorchester, MA and Rehoboth, MA, and dying 1681 and 1690 respectively. One came on the John and Sara, the other is probably from the Unity, but there is no evidence to distinguish which is which. [Exiles; SPOWS]
