PS the LUcas family lived near Thomas Kirk,reinforcing my belief that Thomas and Elizabeth were a couple and that they had three children Elizabeth married a Biddlecombe and Mary who married a Willis,and of course John .I believe that John was born later in life Elizabeth leaves him to the tuition of Henry Lucas until he is 18 this is when she wrote her will just after Thomas died, which makes sense,she would then have been the head of the family.this was in 1676.I am guessing that JOhn maybe was born in 1670 or so (,just a guess,)the daughters are not named by a married name so I am guessing perhaps they are just over 18,and not married yet, apparently this will was recorded in 1682.It would be helpful to find the estate papers involved with this will.It would probably identify this John age more accurateley.I am trying to either verify or rule out this couple as the parents of John who married Frances and had sons John and Thomas who end up in giles Co.
Who ever this Thomas and Elizabeth are ,there is no doubt that they were a couple ,and they seem closer to the randolph Kirk family than to Christopher,Randolph lived just across the rappahannock ,in Westmoreland Co.from Thomas and Elizabeth.He lived in the Nominy forest and they lived near the Occupacy river probably less than 30 miles .
