      Thomas Thompson, born say 1710, was a "Mullatto" who was acquitted by the Charles County court on 10 August 1736 of stealing goods worth five pounds cash from Mary Ancrum. Timothy Carrington and James Glascock were his securities. Samuel Hanson sued him and Benjamin Day in Charles County court for a debt of 4,020 pounds of tobacco on 13 November 1770. He was called "Thomas Thompson Mulatto" when William Cunningham & Company sued him for a 12 pound debt in November 1773. He sued James Gates on 8 August 1774 in a case that was agreed to before coming to trial [Court Record 1734-9, 228-9; 1770-2, 216; 1772-3, 174, 577; 1773-4, 60, 519, 695].
