      Note:
      Capt Thomas Lucas arrived in Va about 1641 from Surrey, Eng. He was one of the early settlers to Va. Records show he patented lands in Gloucester Co, Virginia, as early as 1645 in which he is styled as Thomas Lucas, Gentleman. He was Burgess of Rappahannock Co, Virginia where he settled in 1657 or 1658; was a Justice and occupied many offices of trust and distinction. He is believed to have been of the same family as Sir Thomas Lucas, Justice of Surrey and Middlesex, and a descendant of Baron Lucas of Crudwell, Eng, of the 24th Century. He is said to have been a man of wealth, for in his will he leaves family jewels of diamond rings and pearl necklaces. (See Amer of Gentle Birth by Pittman & Walker vol 1, p 68.) This Capt Thomas Lucas was closely associated with Colonel John Catlett and Ralph Rowzee in bringing persons to Va "to inhabit," in this new colony and for this they were awarded a great deal of land. Captain Lucas mar first in Eng and records show he brought his wife, his son T! homas Lucas, Jr., and a dau Mary to Va. He later mar Mrs. Margaret Upton, widow of Capt John Upton of Rappahannock Co, Virginia. (See Amer of Gentle Birth vol 1, p 68.)

      Capt Thomas Lucas of Sittingbourn Par, Rappahannock Co, Virginia, made his last will 14 Oct 1669 proved in that county 27 May 1674 in which he leaves all of his property to his son Thomas Lucas, Jr.; he also mentions his sons-in-law, Col John Catlett and Capt Thomas Hawkins and his grand dau Mary Hawkins. (See Wills of Rappahannock Co, Virginia p 25, which wills are preserved in the Court House at Tappahannock, County seat of Essex County, Virginia.) Records of Va show his son Thomas Lucas, Jr., born about 1630; an inventory of his estate in Va is dated 1724.

      In the last will of Capt Thomas Hawkins made 8 Feb 1675 proved in Rappahannock Co, Virginia 20 Jan 1677 he names his wife as Frances; his brother (in-law) Samuel Blomfield as Execs; his sons as Thomas and John; to his dau Elizabeth Hawkins he leaves a diamond ring and pearl necklace which belonged to his former wife and if Elizabeth dies before she is 16 then this jewelry to go to his dau Hannah Hawkins. (See Wills of Rapp Co, p 63.)

      Ralph Rowzee, mentioned above as one of the associates of Capt Lucas and Col John Catlett, is said to have been a son of Lodowick Rowzee (Rowzie) b 1590 in Eng, "Doctor of Physic" and a resident of Ashford, Kent, Eng, who mar 19 Sept 1626 Mary Catlett, widow of John Catlett, late of Sittingbourne Par, Benchley, Kent, Eng. Ralph Rowzee was a half-brother of Col John Catlett.
