Per wayne Olsen:

From "The Dimick Family - England":

Edward Dymoke, born about 1580, of the Parish of Pinchbeck, Lincoln Co., England (IGI, LDS Microfiche 1984, source engry form submitted by Kelly M. Morgan, 50 Whitney Street, Auburn ME, probably in 1978, listing Edward Dimock born Lincoln Eng in 1580 son of Arthur Dimock, source Family records in possession of Natalie Hobbs. Also Lucius Barbour ,Family record of Dimock-Manley, CT State DAR, VOl 10, p. 168). The "Bishops Transcripts", St. Peter'son Estgate, Lincoln, ENgland, contain a marriage record of Ser Edward Dimocke and Mistres Anne Moonson on 21 Jan1594", and the records of the parish of Thornton, by Horncastle, Lincoln Co., England show the marriage of one Edward Dymocke to Margerie Popple 2Apr 1597. Whether either or both of these marriage records relate to our lineal Edward Dymoke has not been determined. He was the father of Thomas Dymoke who emigrated to MA and was a founder of Barnstable, MA

    Elder Thomas Dimmock, son of Edward, of Barnstable, England, was the first settler (named Dimmock/ Dimmick/ Dymock/ etc) in this country and the common ancestor of all the name in New England. [4] Thomas was born by about 1610 based on estimated date of marriage. He came to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the "Hopewell" of Weymouth.[5]. First settled in Dorchester and in 1635 was a resident of Dorchester (MA) where he was a selectman that year; was a freeman May 25, 1636; removed to Hingham (MA)in 1638, to Scituate (MA)the next year and in 1640 to Barnstable, Mass., says Mr Savage, though according to Amos Otis, esq., in his history of Barnstable, he settled in the latter town in the Spring of 1639, the same year that Barnstable was incorporated.[6]

    Mr. Dimmock was the first Representative from the new town in 1640 and several times thereafter and was ordained a ruling elder in the Church August 7th, 1650. Mr. Otis says "the history of Mr. Dimmock is identified with the early history of the town (Barnstable) and cannot be seperated.[7][8][9] He was the leading man and was in some way connected with all the acts of the first settlers. He was one of the assistant Justices of the county court, one of council of war and lieutenant, the highest rank then known to the local militia.. ... there is no record of the marriage of Elder Thomas Dimmock but Mr. Otis thinks he married Ann Hammond, dame of William, of Watertown, before he settled at Barnstable.[10]He died in 1658 or 1659 and in his nuncupative will, attested by Anthony Annable and John Smith, the state that "when he was sick last summer (1658) he said that what little he had he would give to his wife for the children were hers as well as his." His widow Ann was living "in 1683 but probably died before 1686." [11][12]

    Thomas and Ann had the following children:

    Timothy, baptized by Mr. Lathrop Jan 12, 1639-40, who was the first of the English who died at Barnstable and who was buried June 17, 1640.[13][14]
    Son, "Mr Dimmick his 2 children twinnes a sonn and a daughter unbaptized, buried March 18, 1640.[14]"
    Daughter, Mr Dimmick his 2 children twinnes a sonn and a daughter unbaptized, buried March 18, 1640.[14]"
    Mehitable, baptized April 18, 1642[14], married Richard Child of Watertown and had a family of two. [15]
    Shubael, baptized Sept. 15th, 1644 [16][14]
    Susanna, b. say 1646; married by 1668 Robert Shelley. The existence of and relationship of Susanna, was convincingly argued by Edith Bartlett Sumner and is included in the list of children in Anderson's Great Migration[6]
