Thomas Lacy II
Confusion About Which Thomas Lacy Was the Immigrant
Published accounts, including the Compendium of American Genealogy by Virkus, have confused Thomas Lacy, father and son, "Thomas Lacy, from Eng. to Va., 1702, m Ann Burnley." Thomas Lacy I was the immigrant, and he married Phoebe Rice. Subject of this profile, Thomas Lacy II, the son, was born in Virginia and married Ann Burnley. This is proved by a document written c. 1850 by Rev. William Sterling Lacy which recorded the words of "old William Rice" in about 1828 or 1829. Rice definitely stated that Thomas Lacy was engaged to Miss Rice, daughter of Thomas Rice, in Wales, and then preceded (by a few years) the Rice family to Virginia, where the couple married. "Old William Rice" was a grandson of the immigrant, Thomas Rice.
- Thomas (III)
Circumstantial evidence for these children:
- Phoebe (tentatively)
There certainly may have been other children, especially daughters, of whom we have no current knowledge.
