Name-SpellingsSeveral variations of the spelling of the THORNBOROUGH surname have been found in our research of this family.

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

Marriage*12 September 1713He married Sarah Hannah on 12 September 1713 in Cootehill, County Cavan.1
Religion*Thomas and Sarah were Quakers.4
(Cousin) Will13 April 1734Thomas was named as a beneficiary, and also as a co-executor, in the will of his cousin, Edward Thornbrough, dated 13 April 1734 in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.5,6,7
Indian Attack*9 June 1757In a Monthly Meeting for Sufferings held at the School House in Philadelphia on 9 June 1757, the meeting was informed that Thomas Thornbrugh and his wife, two aged Friends lately belonging to the Monthly Meeting of Hopewell within the Compass of Chester County Quarterly Meeting, have some time ago been driven from their habitation by the incursion of the Indian enemies on the frontiers and thereby suffered very considerable loss and that they at present reside near Lancaster, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.4
Religion* Throughout the coming year, the Meeting for Sufferings was kept informed of the needs of Thomas Thornbrugh and his wife. They granted them at least £20 in relief funds.4
(Husband) DeathThomas became a widower when Sarah (Hannah) Thornbrough pre-deceased him.4
Will*20 July 1758In his will dated 20 July 1758 Thomas directed that the Friends of the Meeting for Sufferings in Philadelphia be paid ten pounds to be applied by such Friends in purchasing the lands of the Indians at Opequon, provided that such a thing be accomplished within three years after Thomas's decease. His real and personal estate was to be sold in two years and the money paid to his three children, Robert, Benjamin, and Margaret, equally. The will made no mention of his wife or of any other children.4
Death*1758He died in 1758 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.4
Land Records*The Friends in Philadelphia and vicinity had been concerned for many years that the Quaker settlers at Hopewell, Frederick County, Virginia, had not purchased their lands from the Indians before moving to Virginia. The settlers had made the excuse that the Indians had mostly moved away and there were none left with which to bargain. The minutes for the Meeting for Sufferings indicate that shortly after Thomas Thornbrough's death, a committee from the Meeting for Sufferings traveled to Virginia and attempted to reach an understanding with Hopewell Friends concerning this matter.4

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
