Allied Family Topic O

 O   Lt. Thomas Osborne I (c.1580-)
Although I am not a descendant of Lt. Thomas Osborne I, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic O to his family.

Lt. Thomas Osborne I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Lt. Thomas Osborne I might describe his life as follows.

When the Bona Nova of 200 tons, departed England, I was aboard with about 120 others. We arrived in the Colony of Virginia November 1619 and I was settled at the College Land in Henrico by 23 January 1624/5. 
As Lt. Osborne, I was placed in charge of a raiding party to destroy the corn of the Tanx Powhatan Indians 4 July 1627 and I remained as commander as late as 7 March 1628/9. 
No evidence remains that my wife came to the Colony with me, and if we had any daughters, their names have been lost. My son Thomas followed me to the Colony in the Francis Bonaventure in August 1620, and another son may have been Edward, but he left no heirs.
I represented my community in the House of Burgesses at all the sessions from 1625 to 1633.
