Thomas Snell, with his brother, Isachar, came to Weymouth, Massachusetts from Wales in approximately 1661.  He arrived nearly penniless as a stranger in a strange land, but it did not take him long to gain employment as a blacksmith.  Within a short time, he had a blacksmith shop of his own in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.  Quickly realizing the fortune that could be made in trade, Thomas sold his blacksmith shop in favor of a general goods store, and was soon very wealthy.  His solid character, good judgement, and quick wit led to him being a large landownder and establishing a system of currency that was used throughout Plymouth Colony.
