The vital records of Newbury Massachusetts indicate a Thomas Cromwell and his wife who died in 1635. Then a Thomas Cromwell appears in the Newbury town records from 1635/6 through 1645-1646. Giles Cromwell appears in those records 1645-1646 through 1663. Other than this court record there is no published connection between Giles and the Thomas's.

  • Note: The parentage of this Giles Cromwell of Newbury Massachusetts is unknown.

    He is not the son of Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector (1599-1658). Nor is he to be confused with Giles Cromwell, the son of the Lord Protector's uncle Sir Oliver Cromwell (1566-1655).
