Unfortunately, Mr.Fleming, I have no additional information. William Nolen, John's brother, did have a lot of children. I believe the total was sixteen. If I'm not mistaken. If you do further research on the parents of John & William Nolen, Nowland and find any information on Thomas Nowland please let me know. E-mail addresses tend to change frequently. That is why I posted my address and phone # on my original posting.
The Thomas Nowland who came to the New World in 1677 reportedly was in Maryland, but he may have relocated to Virginia. His offspring may be in either Maryland or Virginia in the late 1600's and early 1700's. I have not been able to prove anything beyond 1744. And I haven't made a connection yet that can be proven between Thomas Nowland of 1787 Davidson Co. TN and William Nowland, John and William Nolen's father, of 1744 Albemarle VA.
