Thomas Stratton


Thomas was baptized 24 March 1624/5 at Layham Parish, Suffolk, England.[1] This agrees with his 29 April 1658 deposition in which he stated his age was "about 34 years."[1] Thomas was a son of Benjamin Stratton and Alice (Hawkins) Stratton.


Thomas immigrated to Virginia with his mother, Alice (Stratton) Bagwell, wife of Henry Bagwell, and two servants c. 1628.[1] The servant, John Waltham/Walthum went to court on 16 November 1635 to request the 50 acres due him for his 7 years service.[1]

This is proved by Alice's Court request on 28 November 1636 for 200 acres in Northampton County, due her for transporting herself, her son, Thomas Stratton, and two servants: John Waltum and John Crowder, at her own expense.[1] Afterwards, Alice assigned 100 acres to her son, Thomas Stratton and 100 acres to her daughter, Mary Chilcott.

Stratton-344 and Stratton-210 appear to represent the same person because: same dates and places, wife's name spelled slightly different
