Biography

Thomas Westmoreland - Generation No. 5 (formerly Neville) (Edmund4, Richard3 Neville, William2, Richard1) was born in 1601 in Milburn, North of Appleby-in-Westmorland County (Now known as Cumbria County, England). On December 29, 1624 the "Earldom" of Westmorland passed from the Neville Family to the Fane Family when Sir Francis Fane was appointed as the 1st (Fane) Earl Of Westmoreland - Based partly on the fact that Charles Neville and Edmund Neville, the 6th and 7th Earl of Westmoreland, both fled England in disgrace. Thomas Neville of Milburn felt in dishonor and reacted by changing his name to Westmoreland, the County in which he was born. His son James, at the age of 17 left home and sailed for America, landing in Boston, Mass., moving on south to Virginia where he settled down and married and had a son named John. His son, Thomas, remained in Milburn, Westmorland County, England. There were many branches of the Neville Family who retained the name of Neville and they, with their descendants, remained and continue to live in England today. Thomas Westmoreland remained in England when his brother James Westmoreland (formerly Neville) came to America.
