Thomas Smith

Thomas Smith was born and reared in the southern part of WestmoreUland County. It is believed that his date of birth was between 1700 and 1710. This is based on the birth date of Elizabeth, his wife, and the birth of their children, the first of whom appears to have been born about 1740.Thomas married Elizabeth Fleming.of Richmond County, Virginia. Richmond County lies along the western side of Westmoreland County. Elizaabeth, born February 18, 1710, was the daughter of Alexander Fleming and Sarah Kennedy Fleming, Elizabeth's parents married in 1691. Elizabeth's mother, Sarah, was the daughter of John Kennedy of Rappahannock County. Elizabeth's father, Alexander, died a few months after she was born. When Thomas' father, Peter Smith, made his will in 1738, Thomas and Elizabeth were living in Prince William County, Virginia on the 325 acres of land subsequently left to him in his father's will. This land was a part of the 1160 acres of land that Peter patented in 1712. When Fairfax County was formed from Prince William County in 1742, the land was in Fairfax County.In 1747, Thomas sold his land to Daniel Jennings:This Indenture made the fourteenth day of April 1747 between Thomas Smith of Truro Parish in Fairfax County, planter, & Daniel Jennings of same ... for the sum of one hundred pounds current money of Virginia ... sells 325 acres ... which Peter Smith, father of said Thomas, by his last will and testament dated the 10th day of January 1738, did give & bequeath unto his son, Thomas Smith ... being part of 1160 acres granted ... to Peter Smith bearing date 30th June 1712 which said 325 acres of land is where the said Thomas Smith now dwelleth at Bull run adjoining to the land of his Brother, James ... In presence of Robt. Wicklift, Leonard Dozer, Robt. Lindsy, James Smith, John X Cavener. Signed Thomas Smith. 21 July 1747 ... Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Smith relinquished her right of dower.The same day Elizabeth relinquished her dower, Thomas borrowed five hundred pounds current Virginia money from Daniel Jennings. On 22 October 1747, Daniel Jennings paid Thomas the one hundred pounds for the 325 acres of land.In 1749, Thomas leased 133 acres of land for 99 years, across Bull Run Creek in Prince William County. The lease is shown on the following page.This Indenture made this 22nd day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and forty nine Between Francis Watts of the County of Prince William of one part and Thomas Smith of the aforesaid County of the other part Witnesseth that said Francis Watts doth agree with said Thomas Smith for the Fee Rent of Five hundred pounds of tobacco doth Lease farm lett and make over to the said Thomas Smith a parcel of land for the space of Ninety nine years being in the County of Prince William on Bull Run and bounded Beginning at a marked Beech thence South East to a Spanish Oak Corner tree thence No. East to Bull Run thence up the said Run to the beginning the same containing One hundred and Thirty three acres of land and the said Thomas Smith doth agree to build a suffishen dwelling house and tobacco house and Corn house and to plant an Apple Orchid of one hundred and fifty trees and to keep them under good fence in good repare and not make wilfull waste of the Timber and the rent to become due on the twenty fifth day of December yearly after the first three years is compleated and not to be straneable until three months after same shall become dew and to be payed in one Note at some convenient Warehouse every year and the first rent to become dew the twenty fifth of December in the year one thousand seven hundred and fifty one.

Francis Watts.In 1766, Thomas, Elizabeth and other members of their family were part of a group of sixty-one people who moved their membership from the Broad Run Baptist Church in Fauquier County, Virginia to establish the Chappawamsic Baptist Church in Stafford County, Virginia. In 1776, Thomas, two of his sons, and other individuals petitioned the Virginia Legislature to establish a Baptist Church at Occoquan, Virginia, near their home. The Smiths listed in the petition were: Thos. Smith, James Smith and Charles Smith.[10]He died 12 September 1778 Prince William, Virginia. Thomas died in Prince William County, where he lived, in 1778. He did not leave a will but an inventory and distribution of the estate is quite detailed in describing his possessions and naming his wife and children. An extract of Thomas' inventory and its distribution, as recorded in Price William County, Virginia Will Book "G", p. 18-19 is shown below:

Daniel was born in 1748 Fairfax County, Virginia. He married Elizabeth Reeves in 1770 in Henry County, Virginia. He served in the military in 1776 in Virginia/Carlonia's. Revolutionary War Pension #18596. He owned in 1780 in George Reives-106 acres on both sides of Butramstown Creek (Book E). He owned on 1 September 1780, 190 acres both sides of Butramstown Creek (Book E).. He owned on 1 March 1781 in 232 acres Roundabout Branch of Butramstown Creek (Book C Henry County, Virginia Grants). In 1778 at the time of Thomas Smith’s will Daniel was in South Carolina. On 1 Sept.1780 he received a grant of land, 190 acres on Buttramtown Creek in Henry County, Va. and on 1 March 1781 another grant of 232 acres on the Roundabout Branch of Buttramtown Creek. It is recorded that he was a participant in the Battle of Cowpens in Jan. 1781 and was probably at the battle of Guilford Courthouse 17 March 1781.The next item in their story is the sale of 50 acres of the Butramtown Creek property for five pounds to Charles Smith in March 1791. Then on 28 March 1803 Daniel deeded 312 acres of the Buttramtown Creek land to “ my sons James, Peter and John.” In 1810 James and Sarah sold their interest in this land to Peter and John and Rachel sold theirs to Charles. ( I have a note that Peter sold his interest in this land to Charles but the date is not included.) A letter written by Rachel Packwood’s father in 1811 shows that Daniel Smith was still living. He died in 1811 Henry County, Virginia.

Hello,

I do not know if this is important or factual. I was going through my deceased Grandmother's papers, I found something interesting. It was an "Indenture" from the year 1657. Very old paper, but very readable. The name with the paper is Thomas Smith. I am just trying to track some info down. My e-mail address is tiamat2544@yahoo.com Hope I am not bothering anybody.
