    O.k., I'm going to start over and give you the info for the Henry Thom as that died ca 1788 in Southampton. I don't know how he connects to t he Blunt family but this will tell you who his family was and then may be you can connect the dots :).

    1st a little background on the Thomas family. Most of the ones in Sham pton desc. from William Thomas who died ca 1719 in Surry Va. His 1st w ife was Elizabeth and 2nd wife was Priscilla Browne who died ca
    1715 in Surry. One of William and Elizabeth's kids was William Thoma s who died ca 1723 in Surry. He was married To Elizabeth Catlett.
    They had 2 children: William Catlett and John Thomas. I do have info
    on William Catlett Thomas -- he did not end up in Shampton, in case an yone is interested.

    John Thomas was married to Lucy Fort and they had one child, Henry Tho mas. I'm not sure when John Thomas died but have found deed info wher e land went to Henry who rec'd it as son & heir. After
    John died Lucy remarried to Ambrose Grizzard. This land was sold by He nry Thomas, Ambrose Grizzard & wife Lucy to Benjamin Lewis in 1767.
    In 1753 Etheldred Taylor was guardian to Henry -- in 1756 Ambrose
    Grezard <sic> was guardian.

    Henry Thomas was married to Mary Reese and died ca 1788 in Shampton.
    Henry & Mary Thomas had Nathan, Betsy,David, John and Thomas.
    Mary 2nd married Hardy Thorpe in 1797 and apparently he was quite abi t younger than her.

    I do have documention for the above but am not taking the time to typ e it all out here. I have a new computer and have not transferred my f iles over yet. I started putting all this info in FTM, made a mistake , got aggravated and stopped -- so now I need to finish this up and ha ve probably forgotten 1/2 of what I knew.
