    • He was captain of dragoons in the King William County militia in 1702. He held 1,000 acres in the county in 1704 and received a patent for the 1,800 acres included in his plantation as "Sweet Hall" on 5 Sep 1723. Thomas was the grandson of Governor William Claiborne of Crayford Parish, co. Kent, who arrived in Jamestown on the ship "George" in Oct 1621.

Governor William Clayborne/Claiborne was an English pioneer, surveyor and an early settler in Virginia and Maryland, who became a wealthy planter, trader and a major figure in the politics of the colony. "William Claiborne may have been the most consistently influential politician in Virginia throughout the whole of the pre-Restoration period," wrote historian Robert Brenner. [1]
