Thomas Prewitt

Thomas Prewitt was born abt. 1616 in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, and died in 1692 in Charles River Co., Virginia. "Early Virginia Immigrants" by G.C. Greer, Clerk of the Virginia State Land Office contains a list of 25,000 persons who came to Virginia from 1623 to 1666 along with the patentee or person who brought them over. In this list is Thomas Prewitt, May 6 1636, indentured by Joane Bennet to Charles River County, Virginia. Joane Bennet received 450 aces in Charles River County, Virginia, upon the Poqueson River, east towards the bay, west into the woods, north upon the Pinye Swamp (river), and south upon Robert Thrasher. 50 acres due for transfer of eight (8) persons...Ann Winter, John Roote, Jon Marshall, Andrew Chant, Jon Morris, Pole Carplights, and Thomas Prewitt. Joane Bennet was a Quaker. Thomas Prewitt was thus brought over to America as an indentured servant. Once a person served five years they received 50 acres of land. On June 2,1636, Thomas Prewitt was granted his 50 acres of land in Clarles River County, Virginia, being a neck of ground at the New Poqueson, west upon William Clark a creek, then east upon Thomas Harwood a creek. The said 50 acres of land being due upon him the said Thomas Prewitt for the transportation of one servant into this colony. It appears that Thomas Prewitt and wife were Quakers and not married by the rules of the established church. Charles River County, Virginia, was changed to York County.

In 1646, Thomas Prewitt confessed that he borrowed a canoe from John Wilson and lost it. He was ordered to pay Wilson 2 bushels of corn for the next November 1. This is from records of York County. In 1647, John Thomas has an attachment against Thomas Prewitt to secure a debt of 600 pounds of tobacco. On May 24,1648, Thomas Prewitt confesses judgement to Robert Abrall for 1202 pounds of tobacco to be paid the next October 10. He placed three cows as bounty in the court of York. In 1648, Thomas Prewitt confessed judgement to William Hockaday for 1 1/2 bushels of corn and 56 pounds of tobacco. On July 25,1648, whereas Thomas Privett and his wife were presented to his court for committing fornication and thereof found guilty. Court ordered that they shall do a pennance in the parish Church on the New Pawqueson and during the time of devine servis the next Sabbath Day. The church wardens ordered to see this done. Pruitt and his wife to appear at the next Court to abine further censure. (York Order Book 2, page 387) and (Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Volumn 26, page 9). This was because they were not married in the State Church of England. This was part of the persecution of the Quakers.
