      Thomas Stockton married Rachel Allen, a daughter of Samuel and Margaret (nee Chapman) Allen. The Chapman family was from Chesterfield Township, Burlington County, New Jersey. Rachel Allen's father died and her mother married Samuel Arnold. The Samuel Arnold family moved to Goochland County and can be found there by 1741, however, they might have been living there several years before that time. Thomas Stockton appears to have met and married Rachel Allen in Goochland County in the late 1730's or very early 1740's.
