About Thomas Durham

I have removed Henry and Judith as parents of Thomas since there is no proof. I just removed the relationship so the profiles are still in the system. See below.

Parents Unknown:

"Sorry, guys, LDS records notwithstanding, Thomas DURHAM 1661/1715 of Richmond Co.VA married to Dorothy ??? is NOT the son of Gov. Henry DURHAM of Bermuda.I bought that story too, but couldn't prove it was the same Thomas.Finally I wrote Bermuda Archives, and received an abstract of a lawsuit filed in Bermuda in 1734 that definitely proved that the Thomas who was born to Gov. Hunt lived and died in Bermuda where he had a son "Richard Durham of Sandys tribe marriner Eldest son and heir of Thomas Durham Late of the same Gent: dec'd, who was the son of Henry Durham, Esq. "The suit was in regard to property in Bermuda lately in the possession of Judith DURHAM, Henry's wife.I would love to know also who the parents of our Thomas of Virginia were, but they weren't Henry and Judith Hunt DURHAM of Bermuda.I will say there is an outside chance there could be a collateral relationship, since the father of Henry DURHAM of Bermuda also named Thomas had other sons, who also may have had a son named Thomas, and of course there was trading, etc. between Bermuda and Virginia during that time, of which scant records were kept.. Incidentally, since these are our ancestors also, Jim, I'd be really pleased to hear from you about clues you have forthe possible family for Dorothy and her sisters.Gene in Gotha. "
