Is it Towsley or Trumble? Margaret Towsley birth is a closer match to Freegrace Norton so I have assigned the children to Freegrace & Margaret Towsley.

      George Norton (George) of Salem, Ipswicli, Mass.,
      and Siiffield,Coiin., b. 1641, March 28, m. first 1669,

      George in. second Mercy Gillett(widoM')of Windsor.
      The town of Suffield agreed with George Norton and
      Richard Austin 1695 to make all the windows for
      the minister's house at eighteen pence per light and
      to pay for the same in provision and flax. The
      early records of the town of Ipswich are stated
      to be very imperfect, and mutilated, there being but
      few records of births, deaths and marriages prior to
      1680. The Church records of the first parish have
      been destroyed or cannot be found to about 1775.
      It is evident that the first five children of this George
      Norton were born in Ipswich, but that he afterwards
      became a settler at Suffield, Conn. From the records
      of the doings of the Committee for the management
      of Stony Brook Plantation (Suffield)
      it appears that a grant of 60 acres of land (15
      acres of it on High Street) was made to George
      -Norton Sept. 14, 1674. The settlement of the
      plantation was broken up in 1675 on account of the
      war with the Indians commonly known as Philip's
      war; but was commenced again at its close in
      1676-7. The name of George Norton occurs as an
      inhabitant there as early as Sept. 25, 1677. He is
      called Ensign Norton in the list of voters March 9,
      1682. He was chosen one of the selectman in 1693
      and was sent a representative to the general Court in
      Boston the same year, at which time he is called
      Captain Norton. In the Probate records in Hampshire,
      Book 3, pages 36—37, is found the settlement
      of the estate of this Capt.George Norton, dated March
      31 , 1698. Mercy was his widow—his sons: George,
      Thomas, Nathaniel and Freegrace. His daughters:
      Sarah, Alice, Mary, Abigail, Joanna and Elizabeth
      in the above order: Thomas, Nathaniel and Alice
      were then of Ipswich He d. 1696, Nov 15, (Notes
