Thomas Bickmore (Bigmore) 1601

The earliest record of this family in America is Thomas Bigmore, aged 34, living in New England - "Fether Seller."  There is no doubt of the connection between this Thomas and the Massachusetts line as the name is so uncommon, though the records show nothing of two generations between the dates.  They may have been engaged in traffic with other countries which makes it more difficult to trace them.

Thomas Bickmore, born in England in 1601 lived in Massachusetts in 1635.  He was a "Fether Seller" and left New England in 1635 for Amsterdam.
Early Bickmore History found in Book of Remebrance of Beth Schow Stagge
