Thomas Hatch of Scituate, Plymouth Colony and the family can be traced to John at Hecche who was born about 1393, in Kent Co. England. Thomas Hatch was one of the first settlers of Scituate, Massachusetts in Plymouth Colony about 1638. He settled in that part of Scituate known as the "Two Mile" that was annexed to Marshfield in 1788. It appears the family came to Plymouth Colony as merchants and not for religious reasons. They were heavily involved with the Second Church of Scituate, an Anabaptist church that did not believe in infant baptisms
