Pg 10663523 (Him? Thomas Bliss Marr: former Mrs. Ide? Nicholas Ide step-son not his son-in-law? Other sources say Nichola Ide Jr mar this Thomas Bliss’s dau Martha)
IDE - Nicholas Ide (or Hyde). He died early in the seventeenth century, leaving a son Nicholas (2). The widow of Nicholas (1) afterward married Thomas Bliss, of Belstone, near Okelhampton, Devonshire, England. The latter belonged to a family of substantial farmers and landowners of Belstone, who by their adherence to Puritan views and opposition to the court and clergy, suffered persecution under Charles I, and were reluctantly compelled to emigrate to the New American colonies. Thomas Bliss emigrated to America in 1636, taking with him his stepson, Nicholas Ide, his wife (formerly Mrs. Ide) and two or three children of his own. He joined an uncle at Braintree, near Boston, MA. IN a year or two he moved to Hartford, CT then back again to Braintree in 1640. Religious dissensions arising in the Plymouth Church, Thomas Bliss left the place and settled at Rehoboth, MA, where he shared in a distribution of land, Jun 1644. Here Thomas Bliss, who was said to have been a blacksmith, lived until his death in 1649. IN his will he mentions, besides two sons and daughters, Nicholas Ide as his son-in-law. This is meant of course to be stepson, as his half-sister could not have become his wife.
