      THOMAS LUCKETT2 AND HIS DESCENDANTS

      Thomas Luckett, son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Hussey) Luckett, was born August 12, 1688, at the head of Port Tobacco Creek, Charles County. His wife was Sarah, presumably a scion of the Catholic family of Boone in Charles County. Two sons have been placed--John Boone and Samuel (q.v.). That there were other children is probable.

      Samuel Luckett, son of Thomas and Sarah Luckett, was born in Charles County, Maryland. He was of age in 1768, when he described himself as Samuel Luckett, Jr., of Prince Georges County, Maryland, and deeded to Daniel Payne, Gent., of Prince William County, Virginia, for 5 shillings the interest he claimed by the will of his grandfather (unnamed) and recovered by John Graham. This interest most likely referred to the Virginia land which Samuel Luckett, the emigrant, willed to his son, Thomas, in 1704.

      Samuel Luckett was back in Charles County in 1778 and took the oath of allegiance and fidelity to the State of Maryland, his signature appearing on the list of "His Worshipfull Warren Dent's Returns".1
      In 1790 he settled in Prince William County, Virginia, as is noted from the following court record, dated October 16, 1792. "Samuel Luckett made oath that on the 19th instant he brought from Maryland into this county the negro Charity which although he himself and family hath been removed into this county for near two years yet he never removed the negro".

      Very little is known further about his life. No other record exists of his domicile in Virginia, so it is believed that he migrated to Kentucky with his son--Samuel--(q.v.) whom one finds in Franklin County, Kentucky, at the 1820 census.
