In Reply to: Carpenter, Earle, Thomas Families by David Yeilding of 261

The Thomas Book by Lawrence Buckley Thomas has some of this. The rest is a compilation from MD Cal/o Wills, plus some unproven sources.

In Oct. 1664, Christopher THOMAS, d. 25 Mar. 1670, had transported into the province, himself, wf. Elizabeth, & (step)children Susan & Catherine HIGGINS. By deed of 19 Nov. 1679, Elizabeth SMITH conveyed to her son Trustram by her former husband Christopher THOMAS, "Barbadoes Hall," 350 acres on s. side of Wye R. Elizabeth apparently married thirdly Capt. Matthew SMITH. Her will pr. 26 Mar. 1698, named Mary, wf/o John Martin SMITH; Blanche, wf/o Cleborne LOMAX; Elizabeth, wf/o John HAWKINS; & Robbin, s/o Ann OSBORNE.

William COURSEY entered rights, 1665, for Trustam THOMAS, his wf. Ann, & ch. Thomas, Christopher, & Trustram. In 1670, Wm. COURSEY deeded to "brother-in-law Trustram THOMAS." Wm. COURSEY & Trustam THOMAS wit. will of Robert SMITH, TA, 1671.

Tristram THOMAS (ca. 163_ - w. pr. 22 May 1686) m. 165_, Anne COURSEY & had

Thomas, will pr. 8 May 1706, m. Eliz., had Edmond, Trustram, Thomas, & perhaps Ann.
Christopher, dsp.
Tristram (by 1665 - 1740) m. 1690 Jean BIDDELL, d/o Walter, & had Tristram, b. 17 Jan. 1701.
Sarah, m. 28 Aug. 1680, Quaker, John PITT.
dau. (father's will: total of four daus. [not named], five sons [named])
Rebeckah, m. 23 S 1692, Quaker, John DICKINSON.
William (18 Oct. 1669 - 10 D 1740), m. Jean/Joan (possibly Joanna HOSIER, 22 of eleventh mo. 1707, Quaker).
July/Juliana, b. 15 Oct. 1671, m. John KING.
Stephen, b. 15 Jan.1673/4.

The Thomas Book says Tristram, b. 1701, m. 1765, Eliz. MARTIN. I think a generation may be missing. One Tristram m. at St. Peters, TA, 8 D 1736, Mary SKINNER. They could have had the Tristram that m. 1765, Eliz. MARTIN, & had Wm., Eliz., & Tristram, b. 25 D 1769, after father's death, 17 July 1769. There was also a Tristram, m. 19 Jan. 1732, QA, Mary WATSON.

Tristram, b. 1769, m1. 30 D 1792, Susan GEDDES, of Wilmington, Del., who died leavintg two sons, three daus. Tristram m2. 4 Mar. 1804, Mary Ann GOLDSBOROUGH, d/o Howes & Rebecca. Mary Ann had one son, one daughter. Tristram m3. 23 N 1809, Maria FRANCIS, d/o Philip FRANCIS & Henrietta Maria GOLDSBOROUGH.

BARNES, MD M: Tristram THOMAS m. 11 Apr. 1797, DO, Eleanor BENDALL. Trustram THOMAS m. 23 Oct. 1787, DO, Eleanor LANGFITT.
