The land began at the mouth of Gingoteague Inlet, which marsh and hammocks are commonly called Samuel Taylor's Island, alias William's Island. The deed states that the sale included houses, buildings, orchards, fences, woods, etc. The location of this land sounds like it was near where Jonathan Thornton was living in 1732. Even if it cannot be exactly located today, the purchase of island land near Wallops Neck indicates that the Thorntons of Chincoteague Island were of this line..3

It was on this date that James Thornton, planter, sold to Thomas Townsend, son of Henry, for 5 lbs, 300 acres of "marshy lands lying and being in the aforesaid county near Jingoteague Inlet commonly called and known by the name of Samuel Taylor's Marsh."

Birth*circa 1725James was born circa 1725 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Will - Father's*20 November 1741James was named in his father's will on 20 November 1741 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as a son James Thornton in the will of James Thornton..1 
Anecdote*circa 1745 Since his older brother John inherited their father's land near Chincoteague Inlet, James would have had to set up a household elsewhere and probably became a waterman and Chincoteague Island became his home. 
Land bought*26 March 1783James bought land on 26 March 1783 at Chincoteague, Acc Co, VA. It was on this date that this James Thornton first appears in Accomack County records, when he bought, from Peggy Gillet of St. George's Parish, 42 acres for 21 £, "a tract of land and marsh on Chincoteague Island..2 
Tithable list*1783James was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, for in 1783. The Personal Property Tax shows 9 Thorntons men as heads of households and subject to tax. James Thornton and Wm. Thornton Senr (father and son) were listed together with a Jacob Taylor immediately under their names. A Jacob Taylor was known to have been living on Chincoteague Island by this time. A John Thornton was listed near by.. 
Anecdote24 June 1799 On 24 Jun 1799 James Thornton Senr. was ordered by the Acc Co Court to be tax free and again on 28 Jun 1802, James Thornton of Gingoteague Island, was to be tax fee.3,4 
Census head*1800James was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1800 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. He was shown as James Thornton (DON?), over age 45 with 1 male under age 10, 1 female age 10-16, and 2 females over age 45. The was no James Thornton listed in the 1810 census so he may have been living with one of his children..5 
Anecdote25 October 1802 An Indenture made between the Overseers of the Poor and James Thornton to carry out an order made in County Court dated 25 October 1802 to bind Thos Russell orphan of Joshua Russell until the age of 21, unto James Thornton who will provide sufficient meat, drink, washing, lodging, and wearing apparel, teach him reading, writing and arithmetic, the trade of a farmer and also pay him $12 at the expiration of the said time.6
 
Security on Admin*28 December 1807He was security on the administration of an estate on 28 December 1807 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Atkins Massey was granted to Caleb Massey with James Thornton & John Nock securities.7 
Anecdote26 April 1813 The name of James Thornton appears among the names of Chincoteague Island men on 26 Apr 1813 when votes were counted for Thomas M. Bayly for the US Congress (Acc Co Deeds 1812-15, p. 113). Others who voted for Bayly were Michael Read, John Birch, James Jester, Arthur Whealton, Wm. Sharpley, Joseph Sharpley, John Jones, Crippen Booth, David Jones & Joshua Whealton.8 
Death*after 1813James died after 1813. Since this is the last time his name appears in the records, it is safe to assume that James Thornton Senr. died soon after 1813 as a very old man. He left no will and there was no administration found of his estate. The names of his heirs can therefore only be determined accurately by finding what happened to the 42 acres of land he bought on Chincoteague in 1783 from Peggy Gillet, which he did not sell by a court deed. It is possible that James Thornton Senr. had, besides the son William Thornton, a son John Thornton, born about 1750. He would have married about 1770 and would have been the John Thornton (of James?) in the 1800 census, about age 45, with another male in the household over age 45 (his father James?). This John could have been the father of Jonathan Thornton, b.c. 1771, who married first in 1791 Mary Owen and secondly in 1806 Sally Ross and the father of Kendall Thornton, b.c. 1775 who married in 1796 Betsy Read and d.c. 1824 and was living on Wallops Island, under age 26 in the 1800 census and again on Wallops Island in the 1810 census..
