Stuart,
Hi. (This is Carol, Cynthia's twin sister and research partner) I think the reference to Thomas Keene possibly being in VA as early as 1631, comes from circumstancial evidence specifically regarding the record of John Sturmand, Sr. and Tho Keene being assigned as Coopers to make Pipe-Staves, along with 7 servants in 1637(Sebastion F. Streeter, "The First Commander of Kent Island," a publication of the Maryland Historical Society, 1868, p. 12). I suppose because the surrounding references in that log were regarded persons that had been documented as being settlers years earlier than the entry date. I sent this information in a copied transcription to Cynthia, when she was somewhat new to this line of our family research. The original writer of that statement, unknown to me, could easily have believed it was viable. To my knowledge this was only conjecture, published on-line by a Keene genealogist. Sorry for any confusion we caused you in your quest. Most sincerely, Carol Thompson
