Rattlesden is a village in Suffolk in eastern England. St. Nicholas church dates from the 13th century. The village was a center of Puritanism in the 16th and 17th centuries.

To be presented to the court meant to be charged or indited.

Thomas Scott was baptized on February 26, 1594 in Rattlesden, Suffolk County, England. His parents were Henry Scott and Martha Whatlock. He was a glover (maker of gloves).

He married Elizabeth Strutt on July 20, 1620 in Rattlesden.

He emigrated to New England on the Elizabeth in 1634 with his family.

In 1649 Thomas was admonished for drinking in woods with a group of young men that included his cousins. The court record says that some of their wives had to go after them. In March of 1651 he was again presented to court with other young men.

He made his will on March 8, 1653/54 and it was proved March 28, 1654.

The ship Elizabeth sailed from Ipswich, England in April, 1634 with William Andrews, Master. On board were Richard and Ursula Kimball and their children, Ursula’s mother Martha Whatlock Scott and her brothers Roger and Thomas Scott. Humphrey and Bridget Bradstreet sailed on the same ship. They arrived in July at Boston.

Old Style Calendar
Before 1752 the year began on Lady Day, March 25th,. Dates between January 1st and March 24th were at the end of the year. Old Style (O.S.) and New Style (N.S.) are used to indicate whether the year has been adjusted. Often both dates are used.
