Biography

Field Jefferson (son of Thomas Jefferson II and Mary Field) was born March 16, 1701/02 in Osbornes, Henrico Co. Virginia, and died February 10, 1765 in Mecklenberg Co. Virginia. He married (1) Mary Frances Robertson on April 10, 1732 in Henrico Co. Virginia. He married (2) Mary Hunt on October 31, 1753. He married (3) Frances Robinson on Aft. 1763 in Virginia.

Field Jefferson, the eldest surviving son of Thomas Jefferson II and Mary Field, had already received a tract of land which had been left to his mother by Major Peter Field prior to his father's death in 1731. Therefore the bulk of his father's estate went to younger brother Peter Jefferson.

November 2, 1726 Field Jefferson purchased 897 acres in Henrico County; on south side of Swift Creek; adjacent Capt. Thomas Jefferson (his father) and James Franklin's line for 4 lbs. 10 Shillings. (Patent Book 13, page 18)
