Thomas Thornbrugh1

b. circa 1717, d. 9 March 1797
Father*Thomas Thornbrough2 b. c 1686, d. 1758
Mother*Sarah Hannah2
Name-SpellingsSeveral variations of the spelling of the THORNBOROUGH surname have been found in our research of this family. Other spellings in early colonial times in America included THORNBURY, THORNBERRY, THORNBRUGH and Thornbrough, as well as some others. In some records, an "e" was inserted between "Thorn" and the remainder, spelling the name as THORNEBOROUGH or THORNEBURGH. When speaking the name, the ending was silent, which resulted in all of the different spellings of the name sounding the same to the listener who heard Thornbro, Thornburo or Thornbra. From the mid to late 1700s, the surname began to appear in our research as THORNBURG or THORNBURGH, the spellings that are still the most common today.3
Birth*circa 1717Thomas Thornbrough was probably born circa 1717 in Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland.4
ResidenceThe Thornbrughs lived on Middle Creek, Opequon, Frederick County, Virginia.1
Marriage*29 March 1741He married Abigail Brown, daughter of James Brown, on 29 March 1741 at a Opequon Meeting of Friends, Frederick County, Virginia.5,6
Research Notes*In our efforts to determine the relationships of various members of the extended Thornbrugh family, we found the practices of the Society of Friends, especially regarding marriage ceremonies, helpful. We learned that the Quaker marriage ceremony was solemnized in either a public or private Meeting. According to Discipline, the gathering together of at least 12 Friends was sufficient to constitute a legal Meeting. One thus finds that document, peculiar to Quaker weddings, the marriage certificate signed by at least 12 witnesses. The signatures are usually arranged in 3 columns with the place of honor reserved for the fathers of the bride & groom at the top of the rightmost column, immediately beneath the signatures of the groom & the bride.

The witnesses signing in the right hand column of the two column certificate, in order of their signatures, were Thomas Thornbrugh, father of the groom, James Brown, father of the bride, James Brittain, John Grayham, Walter Thornbrugh and Richard Beeson. Witnesses signing in the left-hand column were Hannah Thornbrugh, Mary Wall, Ann Beeson, Charity Beeson, Sarah Wood and Elizabeth Beeson.5,6
Relocation*1752Thomas and Abigail moved with their children in 1752 to North Carolina.7
(Husband) Death21 April 1780Thomas became a widower when Abigail (Brown) Thornbrugh died on 21 April 1780.8
Death*9 March 1797He died on 9 March 1797 in Guilford County, North Carolina.8
