Ancestry gives age as 23 in 1637
Captain Thomas Todd was a captain and shipowner. Among the ships he owned were the "Augustine" and "Virginia"
Thomas died c. 1671 at Anne Arundel County Maryland.
The records are rather negative relative to his death and the settlement of his estate, but he certainly died shortly after the reaffirmation of his patent "Todd's Harbour".
There is evidence that he died testate, but his will was apparently not recorded or the probate records were lost for that period. If he had died intestate, his eldest son would have inherited the entire landed estate. As it happened, John the minor son possessed "Todd upon Dravan".
