Mother:Susannah Bowdoin (c 1704 - )
Charts:Margaret Custis Russell * lineage
     MAJ Thomas Custis was born on 22 Sep 1726 at Accomack Co, Virginia. He was the son of MAJ John Custis (of Deep Creek) and Susannah Bowdoin. MAJ Thomas Custis married (wife of Thomas Custis) (Unknown) c 1745. MAJ Thomas Custis married Elizabeth Cassandra "Cassy" Wise, daughter of COL John Wise III and Scarburgh "Scarbury" Robinson, on 21 Jun 1748 at Accomack Co, Virginia. MAJ Thomas Custis died on 6 Jan 1764 at Accomack Co, Virginia, at age 37. His estate was probated on 28 Feb 1764 at Accomack Co, Virginia.
      Maj Thomas Custis was named in a land cause on 4 July 1738 at Accomack Co, VA. Edmund Allen and Ann, his wife, formerly the wife of Thomas Custis (dec.) vs. - suit for dower. Thomas Custis, minor son and heir at law of John Custis deceased, Gentleman (who was the son & heir at law of the said Thomas Custis, deceased. Petition for 1/3 part of 1750 acres of land and appurtenances lying at a place called Deep Creek, which was by the last will of the said Thomas Custis, dec., her former husband, given to his son, John Custis, deceased, Gentleman, and by the last will and testament of the said John Custis given to his son, the said Thomas Custis, as the dower of the said Ann of the endowment of the aforesaid Thomas Custis, dec., her former husband - Peter Bowdoin guardian of Thomas Custis, minor.

Thomas apparently married quite early at age 19 with his guardian's permission because his first child Susanna was born in 1746, likely when his first wife died. Aligning Susanna with her father changed known Custis family historical research, so more data may now come forth concerning her line; in 2015 Susanna's mother was unknown. The 1744-1769 Accomack Co Court Order Books volumes 18-23 and the 1741-1787 Accomack Co Orphan accounts have no mention of Susanna Custis, implying she was not illegitimate or the court would have stepped in to establish paternity and livlihood for Susanna.

Maj. Thomas Custis was named in a land cause on 28 January 1752 at Accomack Co, VA. Harry Holdfast (place holder) vs Thomas Custis. For a detailed discussion of this highly involved land issue, see MilesFiles.

Thomas made a will on 9 May 1763 in Accomack Co, VA: "To wife whole estate during her widowhood or until my son Robinson comes to age. To son Robinson Custis. Son Thomas Custis (under age). To son John Custis (under age) horses given him by his grandfather, Maj. John Wise. To daughter Anne Custis 1/2 dozen silver spoons marked 'IWS.' Should my wife died before my children come to age my friend John Wise, Jr. to have the care & tuition of all my children until they come to age, and in case of my friend's death, Maj. John Wise Sr. & my friend Tully R. Wise to have the care & tuition of my said children until they come to age. Wife (no name, but was named as Casey Custis at probate) & John Wise, Jr. executors. Witnesses: Joseph Cox and Edmund Chambers.

Although it is odd Thomas did not name his daughter Susanna in his will, because he did name all his other children, settlement of her son Thomas Wise's estate proved Susanna to be Thomas' daughter.

     CPT Edmund Scarburgh I (Burgess) was born in 1584 at North Walsham, Norfolk Co, England. He was the son of Henry Skarburghe I and Elizabeth (Unknown). CPT Edmund Scarburgh I (Burgess) was christened on 25 Dec 1584 at North Walsham, Norfolk Co. He married Hannah Smith, daughter of Rev Edmund Smith I and Alice Barry, b 1 Feb 1615 at England. CPT Edmund Scarburgh I (Burgess) died b 19 Feb 1634 at Northampton Co, Virginia.
      CPT Edmund Scarburgh I was named in his father's will on 5 Sep 1604 at North Walsham, Co Norfolk, England. He was shown as a my son Edmund, to be maintained and kept of the Inns of Court till he hath taken the degree of a Barester, in the will of Henry Skarburghe, the elder, wife Elizabeth, of North Walsham. Edmund was the writer of his father's will.

As requested in his father's will, Edmund was admitted to Caius College, Cambridge, England, 15 Apr 1602 and remained at Caius College until he had taken the degree of barrister. Edmund served in the British army.

On 10 Sep 1614 there was the confirmation of arms and grant of a crest by Segar to the three brothers Henry, John and Edmund, sons of Henry Scarburgh.

Edmund was named in his brother's will on 1 Feb 1615 at North Walsham, Co Norfolk, England. Edmund was noted as my loving brother Edmund Skarburghe of London, Gentlemen, in the will of Henry Scarburghe of North Walsham, Gentleman, wife Mary. He was given a gold ring of 40 shillings, with my arms to be ingraven on it. And to his wife 20 shilling gold ring, in rememberance of me.

Edmund lived for a time in St. Martin's in the Fields Parish, London. St Martin's in the Fields was where my ninth great grandfather John Lewis born circa 1610 lived before immigrating to Accomack Co, VA.

Jennings Cropper Wise reported Edmund came to Virginia for the first time about 1620, leaving his family in England, however no proof of this has been found. By 1628-29 Edmund settled with his family on Magothy Bay on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where he was a Commissioner for the Plantation of Accomack in 1631; represented Accomack in the House of Burgesses in 1629, 1631 and 1632; and was presiding Commissioner of the first court held in Accomack County in 1632 where he served until his death.

Edmund died intestate after 17 April 1634, the last time he served as a member of the Accomack Court, and prior to 9 Jan 1635, when his widow Hannah Scarburgh sold cattle to Captain Thomas Graves (Ames, Mears & Allied Lines, pp. 345-346). His wife Hannah "Scarborough" was also referred to as a widow on 19 Feb 1634/5 (Northampton Orders, Wills, Deeds, etc, f. 48).
