Sir Thomas Lundsford Traweek II is also known as just Sir Thomas Lundsford II. Also known as Colonel Thomas Lundsford.
He is described as "a man, though of ancient family of Sussex, of very small and decayed fortune, and of no good education", described in youth as " of lawless disposition and violent temper".
Thomas Lunsford II was a US Southern Colonist.
Thomas came to Virginia in 1649, as a Royalist refugee from the English Civil Wars (1642–1648). On 24th of October 1650, Sir Thomas received a grant for 3,423 acres of land on the south side of the Rappahannock River. 
He was lieut-Gen of the Colony and member of the Council. His widow Elizabeth married for her third husband, Maj-Gen Robert Smith of Middlesex County.
All three of these cavalieric Lunsford brothers, were loyal to the King, protectors of the King and military leaders for the King. The King being Charles I. For this reason, some believe that these three were the true-life inspiration for Alexandre Dumas' classic novel, THE THREE MUSKETEERS. Sir Thomas' two brothers, at one time or another, if not continuously, both served in Sir Thomas' regiment and held rank therein. Further -- there was even a 4th brother, William, just like in the novel. If Mr. Dumas had a true-life inspiration for the Musketeer's, the Lunsford brothers certainly fit the bill!
I often wonder how Sir Thomas would feel, were he alive today, if he knew his reputation was being used to promote a candy bar? Or that his legacy has lived on and is the topic of much debate, lore and misinformation? In any case, I heard a "Rest of the Story" (Paul Harvey) clip on the radio that discussed the insipration for the Three Musketeers -- and it was not the Lunsford Brothers. 
Thomas became owner of Rich Neck Plantation when he married Elizabeth, widow of Richard Kemp.
Sir Thomas Lunsford died in Virginia before 1 Dec 1656.
Near the rear of Burton Parish church in Williamsburg Virginia is a large stone slab with the following inscription: "Under this marble lyeth the body of Thomas Ludwell, Esq., Secretary of Virginia, who was born at Burton in the county of Somerset in the Kingdom of England, and departed this life in the year 1698; and near this place lie the bodies of Richard Kemp, Esq., his predecessor in the Secretary's office, and Sir Thomas Lunsford, Knight, in memory of whom this marble is here placed by Philip Ludwell, Esq., nephew of the said Thomas Ludwell, Esq., in the year 1727.".
