According to, Christopher Gerrard, Pam Graves, Andrew Millard, Richard Annis, and Anwen Caffell, in, Lost Lives, New Voices: Unlocking the Stories of the Scottish Soldiers at the Battle of Dunbar 1650, (England: Oxbow Books, 2018), on page 249, Thomas is categorized as:

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]
