      This Thomas was a member of Burgesses of the Colony which assembled at Jamestown Oct. 16, 1629 and he represented Shirley Hundred Main. He was also a member again on March 24 1629/30 from Hundred Main.[13] He was commander of a company of Shirley Hundred men and was called Captain. He was a Justice appointed in March 1631/32 for the monthly courts for the upper parts of the counties of Charles City and Henrico. Jane and Priscilla appear in Charles City County in 1637 as head rights under John Baker as patentee. Whether Thomas had died by 1637 we do not know, nor do we know whether he had other children.
