I am a Tovery/Tovrea/Toberry researcher and have traced my ancestral line to Joshua Tobery b about 1754 in Frederick County, MD where a Thomas Awbrey was listed 15 years later on a tax list in 1771-1772.
Now there was a Thomas Toberry listed on the Loudoun County, VA tithables and on deeds for 1762 thru 1766. and during this time period I found no Thomas Awbery/Auberys listed in the same records.My question is can this Thomas Toberry be the same person as Thomas Awbery, Jr who married Mary Hart? The timeline certainly fits, and the names are similar.The Thomas Toverey in 1766 Loudoun had a wife name Mary (see citations below).
Thomas Toberry is listed as living in Frederick Co, MDby 1782.He apparently died before 1800 as Mary Tobrey age 45+ is listed on the same page as my Joshua.So it is my belief that this Thomas and Mary that were in Frederick Co., VA and that were in Loudoun County, VA were the parents of my Joshua.
But were they the same persons and Thomas and Aubrey/Awbrey of Loudoun Co., VA who married Mary Hart?
