Thomas Walton & Sarah

Sally’s 5-great Uncle:

Thomas Walton ca 1690 -1751 | parents
& Sarah ? | parents
of King & Queen Co in Tatsie Parish in Virginia
and Chowan County, North Carolina


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


Thomas Walton, son of Thomas Walton and his wife Ann _______ was born circa 1690 probably in New Kent Co, VA.
He first appears in the records of Chowan Co NC 15 Dec 1727 when he witnessed a deed.
This Thomas Walton was elected Vestryman of St Paul’s Parish, Chowan Co, NC for three two-year terms 1734, 1740 & 1744.

Note — In closely examining the will of Thomas who died in 1751 he states that his son William is left Negro man Wilefor & a coper kettle. The William who died in 1760 left his wife one Copper Kettle and son Richard is to have the money arising from the Sale of Negro man Williferd. Therefore our ancestor William who died in 1771 is son of William who died 1732. ¬© Copyright 1997 by Sally Moore Koestler in “Elizabeth Jones of Maple Lawn”
