Although born in Pennsylvania 15 January 1705/6, I came to Maryland where I married Nancy Clarke 29 June 1733. In 1744 we settled in Lunenburg County where I was a vestryman of Cumberland Parish (1747-57), [Cumberland Parish, Lunenburg County, Virginia (Bell), p. 27] county sheriff, [Lunenburg Co. Order Bk. 2, p. 33] justice of the peace (1749-59), [Old Free State (Bell), vol. 1, p. 327] militia officer (1750, 1767), [Virginia's Colonial Soldiers (Bockstruck), p. 22] lieutenant during the French and Indian War, [Hening's Statutes at Large, (Hening) vol. 7, p. 224] and ordinary-keeper (1750). [Lunenburg Co. Order Bk. 2, p. 368]

In 1765 my land fell into the newly-created Cumberland County where I made my will 1 May 1777 providing for sons James, Thomas, William, Joseph, Wood, and Richard, daughter Francina the wife of John Cox, and the children of my daughter Mary. [Charlotte Co. Will Bk. 1, p. 334] I died 1 May 1783 and the court recorded my will 2 June 1783.

He was likely the Thomas Balden who patented 445 acres on the head of Horsepen Ford of Cub Creek in present-day Charlotte County 25 July 1749. [Patent Bk. 27, p. 258] As Thomas Bouldin he was granted 400 acres among the branches of Twittys Creek 12 Jan. 1746/7 to which he added 570 acres 16 Aug. 1756, [Patent Bk. 28, p. 56; Patent Bk. 33, p. 27] and he was Thomas Boulden when he got 490 acres on Spring Creek Fork 1 June 1750, 343 acres on Little Roanoke 15 Dec. 1758, 400 acres on Jones Creek in 1766, and 230 acres on the branches of Horsepen in 1772. [Patent Bk. 30, p. 100; Patent Bk. 33, p. 524; Patent Bk. 36, p. 1025; Patent Bk. 40, p. 832] In 1759 in 3 patents, Thomas got 580 acres in Lunenburg County and 765 acres in Halifax County. [Patent Bk. 34, pp. 338-9]

Thomas Bouldin was a tithable in Lunenburg County in 1748-50, [Sunlight on the Southside (Bell), pp. 74, 87, 148] and was charged on 1,703 acres and 11 tithes including sons, Thomas, Joseph, and William in 1764. [Sunlight on the Southside (Bell), p. 216] He added 436 acres on both sides of Terry’s Run in Lunenburg County in 1767. [Patent Bk. 36, p. 1072]
