Biography*Adam Thorowgood was the 7th son of William Thorowgood and Anne Edwards. He was listed in the census, 1623/4 at Elizabeth City and was also there in 1624/5 when he was given as aged 18 and as a servant in the muster of Mr. Edward Waters. As Captain Adam Thorowgood, Gentleman of Kiquotan, he purchased 150 acres on the north side of Hampton Roads from John Gundry, 30 Dec 1626. He then returned to England and was married. Back in Virginia with his wife, he was appointed, 7 Mar 1628/9, one of the commissioners for holding monthly courts at Elizabeth City, served as Burgess for Elizabeth City, 1629, for the Lower Part of Elizabeth City, 1630-32, and in the Council, 1637-38. In 1629-30 when the Council and Governor determined to open Chiskyacke for settlement and desired a company of men there to plant corn, Adam Thorowgood volunteered to supply four men for the purpose. He patented an additional 400 acres in Elizabeth City County, 21 Mar 1634/5. On 6 Aug 1634 the Privy Council directed a letter to the Governor and Council of Virginia recommending that Adam Thorowgood, Gentleman, for special services and industries performed for the good of the colony, be allowed land on the Chesapeakean River to the southward to the Bay, where it may be most convenient for him. As a result of this recommendation, Capt. Adam Thorowgood received a patent, 24 Jun 1635, for 5350 acres at Lynnhaven, in the area which became Lower Norfolk County, 1637, due him for his personal adventure, for that of his wife Sarah and for transportation at his own charges of 105 persons into the colony between 1628 and 1634.
