" Thomas ASHBY was in the Colonial Wars. He was in Stafford County near Paris in or about 1710. That part of Virginia is called the Northern Neck and is now Fauquier County, having the name changed in 1759. A land grant gave Thomas ASHBY 370 acres lying across the Junction with Cracked [Crooked?] Run and in what was then Prince William County. [see Northern neck Grants -Book E-p 494] 108 acres on Bent Branch [Book F, p 292]. These two sites cover the present village of Delaplane, Virginia."
