Thomas had moved to VA with his family by
1643. On 30 Aug 1643 he received two land patents. From
the patents we know his wife's name was
"Jane". The reason for moving might have been the 1642 Civil War in
England instigated by a power struggle
between King Charles I and the Parliment led by Oliver Cromwell.
One of the 1643 patents was for 130 acres in
Warwick River Co. "parallel to his own and land of John Leyden
and adjacent to land of Thomas Davis"
possibly for transporting three persons to Virginia from England. This
was for land on the lower part of the
penninsula between the James and York Rivers and situated near the James
River somewhat between Newport News, Hampton
and Yorktown. John Leyden is listed in the records as an
"Ancient Planter", one who arrived in
Virginia before 1616. He arrived with John Smith and the first
age 27, on the "Susan Constant" in 1607.

Thomas received another patent for 280 acres
adjoining the land he had at the head of the

for transporting 6 more persons. It is most likely that he moved his
family north onto the
property during the early 1660s. Morattico Creek was named for the
Glassocks's land, in Lancaster Co., is on a narrow seaboard peninsula
of VA called the 'Northern Neck'
which is bounded
on the east by Chesapeake Bay, on the north by the Potomac River (River
of Swans), and on the
south by the
Rappahannock River (Quick Rising Waters). Only fifteen to twenty miles
wide, it runs inland
between the great
rivers for about a hundred miles. The Glascock land is located on the
point of land at the
junction of the
Morattico and the Lancaster (formerly also called the Morattico) Creeks
where they flow into the
River, and is thus surrounded on three sides by water. The land is
situated uphill from the little
of Simonson. The East Creek (Lancaster Creek) is the boundary between
Richmond and Lancaster
area was one of the most densely inhabited parts of Powhaten's Empire,
and the hardest fighting
occurred along the Rappahannock near the 'Indian Banks' area."
