There are 2 Thomas Osbornes listed in "Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers 1607-1635, A Biographical Dictionary" by Martha W. McCartney. The one who arrived on the "Bona Nova" in 1619 settled in Henrico County and became a captain in the militia and served a burgess for College Land, Henricus, Curles, nad Bermuda Hundred.
The Thomas Osborne who arrived on the "Francis Bonaventure" was living on the Governor's Land, west of Jamestown Island, where he was listed on the muster of 1625 as an 18-year-old servant in the household of Gov. Francis Wyatt.
I am researching Captain Thomas and will be glad to share whatever I find.
Good luck,
Vicki Harris Stephens
