This third Thomas Green was born in Malden in 1699, and was eighteen years of age when his parents took him to the new town of Leicester. He acquired a knowledge of medicine from two English surgeons who had abandoned the positions they held on piratical craft on the Spanish Main in response to the offer of amnesty made to reformed pirates by the home government, and who had in some way drifted to the domestic shelter of the house of Captain Samuel Green. In addition to being a success ful physician a profession which has existed in the family for five generations - Thomas Green was the pastor of a Baptist Church which he founded in South Leicester. It was he who first acquired the large estate named Green Hill in the present city of Worcester, which remained in possession of the family for a century and a half. Dr. Thomas Green's wife was a daughter of Captain John Lynde, and seven children were born of their union. The fifth child, John Green, was born in Leicester in 1736, and lived most of his life in Worcester, where he died in 1799. He also was a medical practitioner, and one of his best remembered traits was the vigilance with which he personally watched his patients, like a nurse, by day and night, if the occasion demanded. During the Revolutionary War he was a member of the Committee of Safety and Correspondence, and he served as representative in the General Court in 1777, and selectman of the town in 1780. By his first wife Dr. John Green had three children, and by his second wife, Mary Ruggles, he had ten. The second Mrs. Green was the daughter of Gen. Timothy Ruggles, one of the bravest and ablest military leaders during the French and Indian War. She was a descendant of John Tilley, his daughter Elizabeth, and her husband John Howland, all passengers on the May?ower in 1620, the line of descent being from them through Hope Howland Chipman, Desire Chipman Bourne, and Bathsheba Bourne, who was the wife of Gen. Timothy Ruggles.
