In Reply to: Re: THOMAS THORNBOROUGH 1590s ENGL, md LANE by Cynthia Elledge Snider of 92

Hi Cynthia,
I found this on another researchers home page and decided to let you see it and see if this is something that has any merit?
I guess a lot of people have just copied from an unresearched source huh? Thought it ws ineresting in that there is some children listed for Thomas and Alice Lane. I have also heard that Sir Ralph Land didn't have any children?? I sure will wait for the red light. I do not want to proceed any further with info that I have no documentation for.

Thomas Thornborough, son of Nicholas and Janet, came to Virginia
(from England?) in 1616. In 1625, he married Alice Lane, daughter of
Sir Ralph Lane, first govenor of Virginia. In 1644, Thomas moved
to Maryland where he owned 2000 acres. In 1649 he was a member of
the Maryland Assembly. By 1653, he had returned to Elizabeth
City County (Virginia?), where he became a member of the
House of Burgesses. In 1661, he took up 700 acres in Norlumber
County Virginia. Thomas and Alice had five children, one of whom
was Roland Thornborough who married Anne ?. Roland and Anne had
six children. Their daughter Anne Thronborough married James
Wells. Their daughter, whose name I don't know married a man
with the last name of Holmes. Their child William Holmes came
from Maryland to Virginia and he and his wife (name unknown)
were the parents of Susanna Holmes.

Susanna Holmes married Thomas (or Jacob) Estep (or Esteb). They lived in
North Carolina, where they owned a tract of land, in the 1700's.
Their first child was their daughter Honor Estep (or Esteb), born
1759. Honor married Owen Seaney Jr. (or Seany).
