   The earliest mention of Thomas Joy, the emigrant ancestor of most of the Joy families in America, is found in the records of the town of Boston, in New England, when "on the 20th of the 12th moneth, called February, 1686" (Feb. 20, 1687, N. S.), leave was given Thomas Joy "to buye a peece of ground of our brother Robert Turner, and to have it upon the usuall Condition of inoffensive Carryage." Of his birth and early life nothing is known. It is probable that he was born about 1610 in County Norfolk, in England, and that he came to America in that first flood of colonization which in eleven years (1629-1640) brought more than 25,000 souls to found a new English nation on the shores of the North Atlantic. He may have been the "Thomas Joy, age 25," who sailed from Gravesend for America in 1635, in the "Constance."
   In 1637, he married Joan Gallop, the daughter of John and Christabel Gallop of Boston.
