William Thomas and his brother George are the earliest Thomas ancestors I can prove. That William was George's heir does not indicate there were no other brothers. At the time George died without a will the English laws of primogeniture were in effect and only his eldest brother would have inherited from George. There could very well have been other siblings. There was a Phillip Thomas living in Charlotte County that I suspect was a relative. A generation earlier there were Thomas families living in Goochland County and it's likely there is a connection but I have not yet found it. Some researchers have claimed that William and George were immigrants, but they definitely were not.
