Thomas Claiborne of Romancoke was born 17 August 1647[1] in King William Co., VA., son of Capt. William & Eliz. Butler Claiborne.

He served as Lt. Colonel in the colonial militia’s struggle with the Indians, and it is said he eventually died from wounds received while fighting. “In 1665 he received a grant of 500 acres New Kent county, and in 1677 - 1,500 acres on the "upper forks of York river."

He married Sarah Fenn[2] and had at least 2 children: 1) THOMAS, Jr., and 2) Elizabeth.

He died 7 Oct 1683[3] on Romancoke, in King William Co., VA, and his grave can still be found there. It is speculated that he married a 2nd time to Sarah Dandridge. Sarah, widow of Thomas Claiborne, remarried after Thomas’ death and died 18 Oct 1716.
