There are a bunch of RootsWeb entries for the above Thomas Conolly + Anne Mayfield. Most of them show only one child: John c1705. (Generally the name is spelled Connally.)
A message on the Connolly genforum says that there is no proof John is son of Thomas, but that Thomas and Anne were known to have had daughters.
