Notes

  1. Guildhall Library, City of London Libraries, London EC.2, MS 10, 091/16: 17 Mo Jun 1634..."This day appeared personally Thomas Glascock of ye parishe of St. Mary Whitechappell in ye county of Middlesex, joyner and a batchelor aged about 23 yeares and at his owne government & alledgeth that he intendeth to marry Jane Juet of ye same place, maiden aged about 23 years & att her own government, her parents being deceased & that there is noe lawful lett or impediment by reason of any precontract, consanguinity, affinity or otherwise, to hinder this intended marriage, he made faith and desired license for them to be married in ye parish church of St. Mary Staynings, London. (Signed) Thomas Glascock (Signed) Row: Jennings--(Rowland Jennings, surrogate of the Vicar General of the Bishop of London)" (See The Glas(s)cocks of England and America by Rev. Lawrence A. Glassco on page 231 for a copy of the License).
  2. Thomas had moved to VA with his family by 1643. On 30 Aug 1643 he received two land patents. From the patents we know his wife's name was "Jane". The reason for moving might have been the 1642 Civil War in England instigated by a power struggle between King Charles I and the Parliment led by Oliver Cromwell.
  3. One of the 1643 patents was for 130 acres in Warwick River Co. "parallel to his own and land of John Leyden and adjacent to land of Thomas Davis" possibly for transporting three persons to Virginia from England. This was for land on the lower part of the peninsula between the James and York Rivers and situated near the James River somewhat between Newport News, Hampton and Yorktown. John Leyden is listed in the records as an "Ancient Planter", one who arrived in Virginia before 1616. He arrived with John Smith and the first settlers, at age 27, on the "Susan Constant" in 1607.
  4. Thomas received another patent for 280 acres adjoining the land he had at the head of the Morrottico Creek for transporting 6 more persons. It is most likely that he moved his family north onto the Morattico Creek property during the early 1660s. Morattico Creek was named for the "Moraughtacund Indians". "Thomas Glassocks's land, in Lancaster Co., is on a narrow seaboard peninsula of VA called the 'Northern Neck' which is bounded on the east by Chesapeake Bay, on the north by the Potomac River (River of Swans), and on the south by the Rappahannock River (Quick Rising Waters). Only fifteen to twenty miles wide, it runs inland between the great rivers for about a hundred miles. The Glascock land is located on the point of land at the junction of the Morattico and the Lancaster (formerly also called the Morattico) Creeks where they flow into the Rappahonock River, and is thus surrounded on three sides by water. The land is situated uphill from the little fishing village of Simonson. The East Creek (Lancaster Creek) is the boundary between Richmond and Lancaster Counties... This area was one of the most densely inhabited parts of Powhaten's Empire, and the hardest fighting must have occurred along the Rappahannock near the 'Indian Banks' area." [The Glas(s)cock--Glassco Saga, by Lawrence A. Glassco]
