Allied Family Topic G

 G   Thomas Green II
Although I am not a descendant of Thomas Green II, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic G to his family.

Thomas Green II, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Thomas Green II might describe his life as follows.

They called me the “Seagull” because I was born on a ship in the Atlantic after my parents, Thomas and Martha Green, left England for America. My two sisters, who were also on the voyage, married in Virginia—one a man named Eaton and the other, one named Blocksom.
I married Martha Filmer, the daughter of Maj. Henry Filmer, a British military officer, and his wife Elizabeth. We were the parents of 5 sons and 3 daughters, most of whom settled in Southside Virginia.

Henry Filmer was a member of the House of Burgesses from James City County (1642-43, 1666-67).
