Walter Thornburg (c1707-1783) married Margaret, possibly Ballinger, Beason, or Mills, but no connection is proven. Those families founded Hopewell in 1734, and remained associated with the Thornburgs for the next century.

He received a grant of 368 acres on the North Run of Middle Creek, (then Frederick Co) 18 Nov 1752. They attended Hopewell Monthly Meeting, Frederick Co, Virginia, whose records are lost. They probably moved to Guilford Co, NC. about 1754 when the French and Indian War reached the Shenandoah Valley.

In January 1757, Walter Thornburg purchased 437 acres on Richland Creek, now most of the south section of the City of High Point. In August 1762, Walter was granted 660 acres on Abbotts Creek, in Rowan (now Davidson) County, about a mile east of the Sappenfield plantation, where Robert Turner probably lived. The Thornburgs attended New Garden Monthly Meeting until Deep River Monthly Meeting was organized in 1778 and Springfield MM in 1790. Walter probably died in February, 1783. . 1.
