Thomas Province: 1728?
Many years ago, I spoke with a professional genealogist who told me that Thomas Province arrived in Spotsylvania, Virginia as an indentured servant, and eventually was given a land grant from Lord Fairfax in 1728. I am guessing that this is the same land he owned in Frederick County, VA. Unfortunately, the genealogist who gave me this information passed away before I could get her to send me a written record of the source of her information.
My questions to all of you are:
1. Where might records be located to confirm Thomas' terms of indenturement and/or the land grant from Lord Fairfax, IF these are, in fact, true?
2. If such a land grant came from Lord Fairfax, might that support the idea that Thomas Province was of British ancestry?
Does anybody have any information to show that any of the above is true?
